Happy Birthday Mac!

February 26, 2017

Good morning.  It's not even five a.m., but I feel as though I've been up for hours.  I fell asleep early last evening, so naturally I woke up in the wee hours.  However, I've been using this quiet time to get a few things done. 

I've caught up on my blog reading, and sorted through a pile of junk mail.  Soon, I'll put together a load of laundry, make breakfast and put a few more things in our suitcase.  Golly, it seems there's so much still to do and so little time left to do it in.  Ah well, if it doesn't get done, too bad Harry!

I'll bet you haven't heard that saying in a while!  I remember hearing it (too bad, Harry) a lot when I was a kid growing up.  It's amazing how some words and phrases go by the wayside as the years go by, and new words and phrases come into play.  I guess that's called progress.

Today is crunch time.  It's my last chance to pack and re-pack the suitcase.  You know I'm going to forget something, but hopefully it won't be anything very important.  SIL Eddie will be here early tomorrow morning to pick us up and take us to the airport.  I'll look like I'm travelling with an entourage with all my stuff.  But really, I'm only packing one suitcase.  However, I do have Pogo's carrycase, Pogo's stroller and my tote bag (which also acts as my purse).  Oh, and of course, Pogo.

While Pogo and I were outside yesterday, I took some photos of all the little green plants that are pushing up through the ground and the dead leaves.  They look so hopeful, but I'm hoping that they don't get hurt by the cold weather still to come.  Doesn't this make you feel like Spring is right around the corner?

I seem to be very forgetful lately.  So before my mind leaves me again, let me wish my SIL Mac (Audrey's hubby) a very happy birthday.  Today he celebrates the Big Five O!  Hmmm, I wonder how it would feel to be that young again?  Only for a short while, of course.  Mac, I hope your special day is just awesome!  Happy Birthday!

Last evening, I finished the Aran hat and scarf set.  Well, all I had left to do was to cut and put on the fringe.   Here's a photo of the finished set.

I haven't decided which color I'll work on next, but as soon as I choose one, I'll pop the yarn into my suitcase.  Gotta keep these hands working!  Seriously, with a little help from Advil,  it really does keep my hands in working order. 

Well, now I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee, and start crossing things off my "Don't Forget" list.  Amazing, every time I cross an item off the list, I seem to add another one to it.  Folks, I won't be able to blog tomorrow morning unless I get up in the wee hours again.   But I will be back again on Tuesday.  God willing.  So till then, Y'all have fantabulous days. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
Today I caught up on your blogposts, finally.
And so you are on your way to Florida. Awesome.
Hope you have the best time there with Audrey and Beth!!!
Here it is lots better, am just feeling lazy about blogging and blogreading. Should change that again. I will, some day LOL.
Got a nice mail from my niece of France, that she might visit us this year. Would be nice, she is such a sweetie.
Okay, I will try to post something on my blog now, so that people will know I am still around, hahaha.
Have a fantastic time in Florida.

Your photos of the emerging plants defying the odds of survival give hope that spring will soon be here. I've always wondered how such fragile looking things can live in a cold, wet and hostile environment...but live they do. We have the flip side here, I look at the cactus which have almost no root system and wonder how they manage with the heat and lack of water. Nature is amazing in its ability to thrive and it's so fun to watch it grow and develop. I think I appreciate that more and more as I grow older.
