Good morning. Gosh, I do believe we are in a little monsoon season. It rained during the night, and today the heavier rain comes in spurts. At least so far. Outside, we have puddles galore. You won't believe this, but a fellow across the street is out in the rain washing one of his cars with a hand held hose. In the rain! Is he nuts? I guess it takes all kinds!
Yesterday, the mailman showed up bearing lots of goodies. He had four different packages, plus mail, for me. Included in the packages was a new door bell for me, and a book. My old doorbell died a long time ago. This new doorbell will make it easier for me to know when someone is at the door by my pantry.
The new book is called "The Big Dictionary of Dreams." It includes quite a lot of the history of dreams as well as a huge dictionary on the meaning of different dreams. This should be quite interesting.
Well, yesterday was a good day for me. In the afternoon, I started working on photos for my new calendar, and I didn't stop until I was finished. Yup, even went online to design and order the calendars. Now I just have to wait for them to get here. Woo Hoo!
After that was finished, daughter Deanne and Janice came by with some groceries for me. While they were here, they took my air conditioner out of the window, and wrapped it up for the winter. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this spoiling, but I must say that I like it.
I showed the nappy covers to Deanne and asked her what other color I should make one in. We both decided on a medium brown. So, last night, I started a new nappy cover. As you can see, it's far from finished, but it will look rather nice when it is done.
While working on this new nappy cover, I decided that one of the new afghans will be in shades of brown and beige. I think I'd like to make one in gray tones too. That's one color I haven't done much with. I'll have to look around to see if there are any pretty variegated yarns that go well with shades of gray. Another color scheme I think I'd like to work with is Cranberry and Pink, with possibly a matching variegated yarn. Hmmm, so much to think about!
You know, I love the little critters in our yard, so yesterday I pulled another photo from my archives to share. This little chipmunk seems to be enjoying watching the leaves falling as the wind blows.
I got another update from Angelica yesterday. Her health is not so good, but she keeps up a good spirit about her. Angelica, if you read this, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pogo and I hope your day is a good one.
Well. that's my news for today. So till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
