Good morning. Have you noticed that we're running out of October? Gosh, the time is flying by! It seems that the only time of year that does not rush on by is the winter. Winter weather seems to drag on and on.
Think about it. From April 15 to October 15, the weather is split among three seasons, Spring, Summer and Autumn. From October 15 to April 15, we have the colder weather of Winter. Hmmm, somehow this doesn't seem quite right. Or maybe it's just the way an aging body might perceive it. You think so?
It's been quiet here. I have a list of things that I hope to do each day, and somehow I don't quite ever get to even the first item on the list. Well, to be fair, lots of times I do accomplish at least one thing on the list.
Yesterday I crocheted for a while. Now I have only twenty four more rows to go to finish the afghan. Interesting, but for some reason I'm not enjoying making this particular afghan. It's pretty, so that's not the reason. Ah well, I'll like it once it is finished. Then I can move on to something different.
Later this afternoon, I'm meeting Deanne at the shooting range for another go at Cricket. Hopefully today I will be able to hit the bull's eye three times. Now that would really make my day! I had thought that I would stop by the bank on the way to the range, but I think I'll wait and go the bank tomorrow so that Pogo can go with me. He enjoys going to the bank, and the folks there enjoy seeing him too.
Today, I think I'll put the new plant shelf together and get it set up in the kitchen pantry. Then I have some calls to make to figure out what to do about the refrigerator. You know, I bought my refrigerator in 1997, and it is still working just fine. On the hand, neither of the refrigerators out in the main house are older than six or seven years. Makes me wonder why some folks are so careless.
Tomorrow I have to buckle down and get creative on my computer. I have a card to finish, and another quick page to make. Then I really must get serious about working on my calendar. I also have to wrap and package my daughter Laura Jean's birthday gifts and get it to the post office.
I found a beautiful crochet jacket pattern on line, but I was not able to copy the pattern. Once I finish a couple projects this weekend, I'll look again for the pattern. However, I did find a cute pattern for a retro pin-up headband that I would like to try.
The morning is flying by, and it's time for me to rustle up something tasty for brunch. (I did not have breakfast this morning, so I'll have an early lunch.) Tuna salad is sounding pretty good. On that note I'll take my leave. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
