Good morning. It's 4:50 a.m., and I've been up for a while. Pogo and I have just finished our breakfast, and he is fast asleep again. I'm hoping to be sleeping soon too, after I finish this post.
Last evening, I curled up in my lounge chair to put the last two rows on the Frosty Green afghan that I'm working on. Pogo decided that he wanted to sit with me, and settled in comfortably right on top of the afghan. Actually, he curled himself right into it. I took this photo around 9:58 p.m.
It was a bit difficult trying to work on the afghan, and I leaned my head back for a moment to figure out how to do this without disturbing Pogo. I woke up a little after midnight to find that Pogo had changed his position, giving me an opportunity to grab on to the end of the afghan. I took this photo at 12:08 a.m.
Somehow I managed to work the last two rows of the afghan. It is finished!! I thought I might start on the baby blanket, but Pogo was not moving. Actually, he was snoring away, ever so lightly; probably dreaming of how he might be able to snag this afghan for himself. You gotta love this little guy.
Earlier in the day, Deanne and Eddie came by with two of my great grandkids, Jack and Lilah. Oh gosh, it is so good to see the little ones. They've been staying with Deanne and Eddie, and will be at least through tomorrow. After that, I guess it all depends on when their mom and Ali can come home from the hospital.
The news today about Randi and Ali was not so good. It seems they both have had a set back, so more tests are being done. I sent Randi a photo of the kids and me that Deanne took with her phone. It seemed to cheer her up a bit. Here's the photo with moi and Jack, Pogo and Lilah. We were out in the laundry room just before they were leaving. I am so blessed.
Today, after I get up from that nice long nap that I'm going to have, I think I must really get serious about my gift wrapping. It's not my favorite thing to do, so I procrastinate a lot. I start it, but then I let myself get side-tracked. Unfortunately, time is slipping away, so I must buckle down now and get it done.
Right now though, I think I'll put in my six o'clock eye drop (a bit early, I know) and then I think I'll curl up under my blanket and invite the sandman in for a visit. Mmmm. Sounds delightful! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a splendid day.
Hugs, Edna B.
