Good morning. Tis looking a bit gray and cold outside. That's okay, it can stay out there. Spring will be here in a few months and I'll be waiting for it. Deanne and I had an appointment this morning at the shooting range, but I've been a bit under the weather so we cancelled.
Sad to say, I think one of the bugs that are going around is trying very hard to catch me. I've had a sore throat since yesterday afternoon. Today I will try some Zicam to see if I can shorten this "bug's" stay. Here's hoping it works.
This morning Deanne texted me to say that Jazzy's photo is in the newspaper again. She sent me a copy of one photo from the newspaper. I'll have to go online to see the other photos. This weekend, Jazzy is taking part in a performance at her high school. It's a murder mystery show and should be a lot of fun. If there wasn't so much walking involved and so many stairs, I might be able to go to the school to see her. Fortunately, Deanne will take photos for me.
Well, yesterday, Joe took a few more boxes to the Post Office for me. I only have one more box to mail and it can go out next week. What a super feeling! Now I can focus on finishing up my local stuff.
Remember a while back I showed a picture of a pattern that I had bought along with the yarn to make it for my two youngest great granddaughters? Well, it turned out that the pattern was for knitting and I prefer crochet. So I looked around online and found me another pattern for a sleeveless hooded vest that is crocheted. It came yesterday. I think I'll like this pattern because it looks a bit more uncomplicated. This one is for sizes 2 to 10.
Each night, I try to add a few rows to the Cranberry afghan before I doze off to dreamland. Here's a photo I took a couple nights ago to show how the colors look together. This one really is pretty.
When the mailman came yesterday, he had a big box for me. It was from Kyra. Oh wow! Christmas is right around the corner and now I'm getting a bit excited. I did not open the box yet. I want to wait till I get my tree up. I haven't decided if I'll put up my usual little tree, or the tiny one that I used last year. Either way, I'm hoping to get it done this weekend.
Well, now I need to look up the newspaper online to have a look at the two photos they have posted of our Jazzy. After that, I really need to do a load of laundry. Maybe two. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
