Good morning. Tis a wee bit cool - brrr, brrr, brrr, only 42F degrees at the moment. Temps should get up to the mid sixties later today. Much as I don't want to, it's time to put the heat back on. At least for the night times. Tomorrow I'll be calling to make an appointment to have the furnace cleaned out.
Have you noticed? The month of September has slipped right on by, and now it is October. Goodness, the year will be slipping by quickly now. Here is the October page from my calendar.
Well, Pogo and I have been busy these past two days. We've been spending time out on the porch. Pogo keeps busy watching for visitors and the mail truck. I've been busy crocheting. Friday evening, I finished the Tuscan Gardens hat and scarf set.
I took a photo of my target from Friday morning's practice. As I said, it's not as good as I had hoped for, but all things considered, it's not bad.
I couldn't wait to open the box of yarn that arrived on Friday. Oooh, ooh, ooh, such yummy colors! Here's a photo of the open box.
Don't these colors remind one of breakfast? Melons and orange juice? The pink yarn peeking out on the side is for the hooded vests that I am going to attempt to make for my two youngest great granddaughters. Notice the word "attempt." I read over the pattern, and I'm not so sure that I understand all of it. I'll have to read it over again.
Last night, I took the Citrus Green yarn, the Daffodil Yellow yarn and the Citrus variegated yarn, and started a new afghan. The yarn feels wonderful as you work with it. Imagine curling up in a whole afghan?
Pogo's hair has been getting long and thick again, and it covers his eyes sometimes. I got out a pair of small scissors and tried to trim some of the hair on his face so that I could see his eyes. Goodness me, my little guy now looks like a tiny red fox. The hair cut could be better, but he is still beautiful to me. Here's a photo I took while we were sitting out on the porch.
I have a couple more photos, but I'll save them for tomorrow. To my friend Snowy, thank you for the link to Lisa Parker's site. Folks, Lisa Parker painted the design on the cat tee shirt that I posted this past Tuesday. Oh wowsie! I had a look at some of the work on this woman's web site, and it is simply gorgeous!
Now I'm going to make a fresh, hot cup of coffee. These old bones need a bit of warming up. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
