Good morning. I have been up for a while, but I've been busy doing goodness knows what. I seem to be an expert at keeping busy and never really accomplishing much of anything. Well, I have been watching the Weather Channel. So I guess that's something.
Well yesterday afternoon Joe and I went grocery shopping at Walmart. I hunted all over their very messy yarn department for a skein of yarn to finish off my afghan, but I could not find the color I needed. Later I went on-line looking for it, but still no luck. I was going to take a ride to JoAnn's Fabric store to see if they had any, but first I checked on-line. A good thing too, because they were out of stock too.
While I was at Walmart, I picked up a couple balls of ribbon yarn and a pattern book. Last night, I was looking at the patterns and realized that I would not be able to try any of them without someone to actually show me how to use this ribbon yarn. They did have instructions, but my frazzled little mind could not make sense of them.
The mail carrier just came, and brought me an envelope from the manufacturer of the induction burners. Remember they said they would send me an instruction booklet that explains how to cook on this burner? Important things like what temperature to use for different things, how long to cook different thngs, etc. Well they sent me a copy of the booklet that comes with the burner. It tells you what the different parts are for, and what kinds of pans you can use on the burner. Period. So, I guess one has to just play around with these burners and learn the old fashioned way. Trial and error.
On a happy note, the mail carrier also brought me two fun catalogues to browse. They have such pretty clothes in them, and I just love looking at all the wicked funny tee shirts. I guess I'm what you might call "a cheap date." Toss me a couple of catalogues and a cold bottle of water, and I'm a happy little clam.
Here's another happy note that I borrowed from the web.
On a more serious note, I also borrowed this from the web. My goodness, what a fabulous idea for folks with fur babies.
Well, that's about all the news here. Before I go, I have another brain teaser picture puzzle for you. There are ten eagles hidden in this image. Good luck.
Now it's time to grab a nice cold bottle of water and settle down with my new catalogues. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
