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.

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.
