Good morning. The sun is shining, but the temps have dropped a bit. It's fifty five degrees now, but it's only supposed to get up to about sixty degrees today. We have a few rather cool days coming up, plus a bit of rain the next couple of days.
I've been thinking about going to the market to do a bit of grocery shopping and I think today might be the best day for me to go. I don't relish going out shopping on a rainy day. To be honest, I don't relish going grocery shopping at all, but it's a "must do."
Well, it's been quite a weekend so far. Jazzy's big day was yesterday. She graduated from high school, so now the last of my grandchildren has grown up. Here's a photo of Jazzy and one of her best friends, Cole. They've been friends since kindergarten. Congratulations and best wishes to both of them.
Yesterday was a warm day, so I decided to put my new fan in the window. Hmmm, I should have check the weather for the next few days first. I'll probably have to take the fan out and wait a few days before putting it back in the window.
I also did a bit of re-potting, and planted some petunia plants in my small kiln by the shed. Joe cut down the wisteria vine by the shed. (I asked him to) It was getting unruly and taking over my little garden and crawling all through the Japanese Red Maple tree. I will go online and order a different type of vine to replace it.
Last night, I was looking for something at Amazon, and I came across a set of coffee mugs that I've been admiring for quite a long time. I never ordered them because I don't really need more coffee mugs. However, last night I decided "why not?" So I put them in my (online) shopping cart. Now I have to decide whether or not I want to buy them. Aren't they pretty?
I've still got about four more rows to go to finish the Cranberry afghan, but I decided to start a new one. I'll still work on the Cranberry afghan, but the lighter colors on the new one are easier for me to work with. The colors are Raindrops and Goldfish (variegated).
I still have a couple more doll dresses to make but first I have to order some new yarn. I have specific colors in mind for them. This new afghan will keep me busy. I have noticed that I'm slowing down quite a bit. I think my days of crocheting a new afghan every few weeks are over. Sigh, the joys of getting older
Today I have a new quick page for you. This one has a rather nostalgic look to it. I used Kyra's kit "Lifetime Moments".
Here is your download link:
Now I think I'll do a bit of blog reading before I leave to go grocery shopping. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
