Good morning. I got up early this morning (around 5 a.m.). I still had a bit of blog reading to catch up with. It's a bit on the BRRR side, only 18F degrees. Today we should get up to around 30F. Oh joy, be still my little heart. Spring???? Please hurry here!!!
I'm watching the Weather Channel to see what's happening with storm Jonas that is due here on Saturday. It's not a very pretty storm and is causing a lot of severe damage and chaos wherever it passes through. It has heavy winds, snow, ice, hail and rain. Not very pretty at all.
Last evening, DIL Janet was here and we had a lovely evening getting caught up on all our news. It's been a while since we've been able to get together. Sad to say, she won't be able to join me in Florida this year. She has a bit of remodeling being started on her house soon and will need to be around to keep an eye on it.
I downloaded images of the new yarns that I ordered to post here. I can't wait for them to get here so that I can start using one of them (possibly the Cotton Candy) with the Medium Rose afghan. I hope. If not, I'll start a different afghan. Aren't these just yummy colors?
I'm hoping that the "Valentine" yarn will match the red yarn that I bought. The "Harvest Melon" will match the new brown yarn and the "Smoothie" - well, I just couldn't resist the colors.
Today I need to do a bit of shopping online to find me a new suitcase and a new tote. Pogo and I will be travelling alone on the way home from Florida, so I want to minimize what I will need to be carrying. The tote will have to serve as a purse and a carry on to hold my important things, and still be light and not too big. I will still have a suitcase, Pogo's stroller and Pogo in his travel case.
I used to drive everywhere, and I may have to start thinking of travelling by car again. We'll see. I don't like going distances alone anymore. Must be an "old age" thing. When I think back on my younger years, it is scary how fearless I was. It's good I did it all when I was young and foolish. At least I have lots of fun memories now.
Well, that's all the news here. I need to finish making up my shopping list. Joe and I will go grocery shopping later this afternoon. Plus I want to get started on my online shopping search. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
