Good morning. Goodness, I've already done a whole day's work, and it's only 7:30 a.m. Last night, I fell asleep really early - around 9:30, and did not wake up until almost 1:30 this morning. So I decided to just get up and do a few things around here.
First, I decided to tackle the bedroom. I must say, that I was quite the busy little bee but I'm not really sure if I actually accomplished much. I did fill a little bag with trash (note I said "little" bag), and I put a few piles of clean clothes away.
I packaged up a box of pretty things to mail off to my daughter Laura Jean the end of next week. Her birthday is only two weeks away, and I can't get over the fact that my baby is turning fifty. Forty nine years and six months ago, (1966) the hospital called me and said to come and take her home.
They did not believe she would live the ride home, but at least I would get to hold her one more time.
Well, my beautiful little girl wasn't ready to go anywhere just yet. We've had a lot of ups and downs throughout the years, but God has been watching over her. The staff at the pediatric facility where she lives take excellent care of our Laura Jean. I am very thankful for this.
Of course, all this makes me wonder how I got so old so quickly. My mind does not feel old, but I've shrunk down about an inch, and my hair has been thinning. My long thick braids will never be again, and memory lapses a tiny bit every now and then. Hmmm, all signs of getting old.
Enough of my babble. I took a photo of the neck warmers that I have finished so far. These are fun and easy to make. If anyone wants the pattern just let me know.
Today is Wednesday, so I have another freebie for you. It's just a bit of whimsy and nature, but I hope you can use it.

Mr. Pogo has turned his little nose up at just about everything I've offered him for food. So, this morning I've given him a plate of Paul Newman's premium dog food. I have not been successful in the past getting him to eat this, although before I got him, he liked it. (or so they said) However, where he is not interested in the steak, roast beef and hamburger, he'll have to settle for dog food.
Now I think I'll get back to doing a few things around the house before my mind realizes that it is getting tired and in need of a nap. haha. So. till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
