Life Is Good, Folks!

October 27, 2015

Good morning.  My goodness, I really did sleep in late on this beautiful sunny morning.  Right now, it's about 45F degrees, and should reach the mid 50's later today.  Tomorrow should be about the same, but Thursday will be glorious with a high temp in the low 70's.

I woke up today thinking that it was already Wednesday.  What can I say?  Some days my mind gets a bit scrambled.  It must be because of all my unstructured time.  Yeah, that's it.  Last evening, I was working on a Halloween QP and I got carried away with the time.  This is Halloween week, so I thought it would be fun to make one or two extra QP's. 

One of my favorite Poser characters is Lola, who is designed by Freda Fredericksson.  I just love this little character, so you will see her popping up in quite of few of my quick pages.  Lola loves Halloween.  Well, actually, she loves just about everything.  Here she is performing the Hemlock Ballet with the trees and nature.

I mentioned yesterday that I got a couple of wonderful surprises in my email, and I've resized them to share with you here.  My friend Kyra is such a sweetie, and she makes fabulous scrap pages.  She made these two pages for me; one featuring Eddie and Deanne, and one featuring Pogo and Joe. 

Aren't these wonderful?  Kyra, thank you so much.  I just love them!  The page with Dee and Eddie was made using Kyra's kit "Creepy Romance," which you can get on her blog.  The page with Pogo and Joe was made from her kit "Golden Days Of Autumn" which hasn't been released yet.

I really didn't do much out of the ordinary yesterday.  Hmmm, the story of my life lately.  But I did spend some quality time playing with Pogo, and this is always fun.  Today is the one year dating anniversary for grandson Kevin and his sweetie Janicee.  I love them both, and wish them a beautiful day with lots more happy memories to come. 

 It's easy to see how blessed I am.  From the little girl who didn't look like anyone, (that's what folks said about me when I was just a little girl) who'd have thought that I'd be leaving such a beautiful (and large) legacy behind when my soul finally left for my heavenly cottage.  Life is good.

Today I want to start another green neck warmer.  I already finished one green one, but it's such a pretty color that I want to make two of them.  Besides, they are easy and fun to make.  If you want to try making one, you need a size 'K" crochet hook, and one 7 oz. skein of worsted weight (4) yarn.  (This is enough for two neck warmers)  

You chain 20, double crochet in the second chain from the hook.  Continue across the row.  (19 stitches)  At end of row, chain one and turn.  Double crochet in second chain from hook.  Continue on for 84 rows.  This will fit the average size adult.  Have fun.

It's getting late now and Pogo is looking for some lunch.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Your photo of Lola made me think of one of my dolls I'd made, I'll have to see if I can find the box she's stuffed in and dig her out...she's very Halloween perfect.

How fantastic that you slept in a bit later, obviously yu needed it.
It's of course is always fun to have some playtime with Pogo, so that is well-spent time.
Gosh, already ONE year dating time of Kevin and Janice, LOL! But, yes, on their age it seems already a loooong time! It's a lovely couple.
May be Jan and I will spend some time in the garden today, weather still looks good and we have to do work there. Jan already did a bit yesterday, but there is "serious"work to be done.
You have a wonderful day and as long you have good weather, enjoy it.

P.S. Lola is sweet in that quickpage!
