Good morning. The sun is shining and there is a nice breeze. It's a beautiful day here in my little part of New England. Yesterdays scrimmage baseball game got changed to today, but I doubt if Pogo and I will be able to make it. The walk from the parking lot to the game field may be a bit too far for me to walk.
I may have to dig out my walker so that I don't miss all Kevin's games. I got the walker a while ago when I broke my foot. It came in quite handy when Eddie had his knee surgery, and now I may need it to go to games.
Last evening, I took a photo of the Claret afghan before I packed it up. The colors are really quite pretty in an old fashioned sort of way.
Next, I took out another pretty afghan that I've been working on in between projects. This one is called "Frosty Green" and is also quite pretty. I'll take a photo later today. I'll switch back and forth between this afghan and the baby blanket that I've started. Busy hands are happy hands.
The other day when I pulled into the driveway, this little bird was happily feeding on the birdseed that was on the ground. He was in no hurry to move, even when I was getting out of my car. IN fact, he was looking at me as though I was bothering him. So, I grabbed my camera and took a few photos.
There was an article in this past Wednesday's newspaper about Artic sea ice. It said that the summer Artic sea ice shrank to it fourth lowest level on record this month, dispelling faint hopes of a recovery, according to federal scientists.
With human-caused warming continuing, computer simulations show on average that around the year 2040, sea ice will disappear from the Artic during some summers. Keep it up, humans, and you may not get to enjoy the next century on this planet. (Newspaper - Patriot Ledger)
This past Friday afternoon, I started working on a QP for this week's freebie. I got so wrapped up in what I was doing, that several hours flew by. I even forgot to stop and make supper for Pogo and me. Needless to say, our dinner was a bit late that night. But I did have fun playing on my laptop.
Yesterday, I started listening to some of my music that is stored on my laptop, and again time started slipping quickly by. I have to say, this retirement thing can certainly be lots of fun. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, for as long as I want, without worrying about being up too late.
Well, there are dishes in the sink calling to me. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
