Just Putting All My Ducks, er...Crafts, In A Row

August 13, 2017

Good morning.  Our nights lately have been perfect for sleeping, and the morning temps are just super for sitting out on the porch with a cup of coffee.  Today and tomorrow temps should get up to the mid 80's by noon.  Rather a nice summer day, I'd say.  Thank goodness we're only halfway through Summer.  From here on, the weather will mostly be like today.

Well, yesterday was a restful day for Pogo and me.  I did a bit of crocheting off and on.  I'm trying to get the blue afghan finished so that I can go on to my other projects.   I'm getting there.  Only four or five more rows to go and the afghan will be done.  Yeaaaaaah!

Next, I want to get the bed dolls finished.  Then on to a couple of air freshener dolls and a few red baby hats.  Then I'd like to start the afghan with the new yarn colors that I've ordered.  I've been thinking though, that I might need a variegated yarn as an offset color to go with the new yarns.  I'll have to wait until the yarn gets here to decide. 

Meanwhile, I've been adding to my scrap kit collection, (the kits I purchase) and I've been having fun playing around with them in Photoshop.  This, of course, means more quick pages for you.  Today I have a whimsical QP featuring nature.  I hope you like it.

Here is your download link:

We've been getting bits of rain lately.  Just enough to keep the plants and the grass happy.  I've been checking the Dahlia plants, and I'm wondering if they're ever going to do anything.  Two of them have tall stems, and the other two are short and a bit thicker.  Only one of the tall stems has a bud on it, and now it has two of them.  So, I still have hopes of seeing a flower before we run out of blooming season. 

Ever since we planted my pretty Rose of Sharon shrub, I've been wondering when it will start looking like everyone else's.  Their's all have tons of blossoms, while mine gets a scattering of blooms.  Well, this year my shrub is looking so much better.  It is full of blossoms and getting taller. 

Well, I think it's time to tackle the breakfast dishes, and then maybe run the vacuum cleaner around a bit.  It's time to get re-acquainted with the dust bunnies and try to get a few of them to move out.  haha.  On that happy note, I'll take my leave. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Good Morning, well here it still is. How are you? I finally got your QP's downloaded and they are gorgeous. So glad that you are having fun working with your new kits and making the quick pages. They are really awesome. Thank You so much.

I almost called you last night. I had something to tell you but I am sure that it was not important. Thankfully I looked at the time before I hit the call button as I didn't realize it was so late on my end. It was almost 10:00 pm here so that would have made it almost 11:00 pm your time so I said... Oppp's and I closed the phone.

Maintenance Men are coming to fix my garbage disposal this week. It is leaking so I am going to go ahead and have them install my shower head. I will just keep the other one and if I move I will put the old one back on. They will not remember who did what anyway. The way that they change their workers around here they have no idea what goes on I am sure.
My son in law says that he will do it, but he hasn't been over. Karyn said that he is not feeling well and keeps having these headaches and she said that he gets these every year and says it is allergies.
Also my cleaning supplies really bothers him. Anytime he is around a lot of cleaners it really messes with him and I have been on a cleaning spree. He is into the all natural cleaning with white vinegar and baking soda and lemon. I am a bleach person and I use a variety of cleaners.

I guess that I will close for now. I am sure that I will talk to you soon. Hugs, Beth and Cisco. Give my boy lots of pampering from Auntie Beth today and always...

Oh boy, did write a comment, touched the wrong button and ... gone!
So over again.
Glad you are doing okay again, hope Pogo is feeling better too?
I am doing okay here, just lazy about the computer.
Weather is not too bad, some days nicwe and warm, other days more of a roller coaster. Today we have around 22C, next few days may be even a bit more then it will cool down again to around 19-20C
I wish weather could stay a bit more regular, LOL.
Last weeks we watched the WC Athletics, from London. Great event!
Now have to go, laundry has to be hanged out to dry, then I will do some prepares for dinner this evening.
Just wanted to let you know, I am fine, so don;t you worry.
Sending you a big hug.
