A Busy, But Beautiful Morning

September 29, 2017

Good afternoon.  It was nice and cool overnight, so I got to sleep in a bit late this morning.  By the time I had made my coffee and fed Pogo his breakfast, I only had enough time to crop some photos for today's blog before I had to get dressed for our appointment at the shooting range. 

Today is a bit cooler, sunny and simply gorgeous!  When Deanne showed up, she brought me a beautiful bouquet of orange roses.  Wow!  What a way to start a day!  I'll have to take a photo of my beautiful flowers. 

At shooting practice, I didn't do as good as I had wanted to do, but I did pretty good considering my shoulder is sore and arthritis is keeping my trigger finger sore.  I'll take a photo of my target later. 

When I got home, there was a box of yarn waiting for me on my porch.  Woo Hoo!  Now I just have to wait for one more box of yarn and I'll be all set for my next few projects.  Well, that's the plan anyway. 

Last night, I finally finished the pink hat.  I don't think I'll be working with that yarn again.  But the pink hat and scarf are really pretty.  Here are photos of the pink set and the gray set.

Yesterday afternoon, while Pogo and I were out in the yard, I took a few photos of some of our blooms.   This one little blossom is really quite delicate, but very pretty.

While I was outside, I also took a photo of my little rain gauge.  It's full of water, so I think I'll have a look to see if it is measuring in inches or centimeters.  I think I saw a little cm on the bottom of the glass. 

Once I finished the pink hat and scarf, I started a new set.  The yarn for this one is called Tuscan Night.  I'll have to take a photo of it.  The colors are greens, with a touch of light blue and rusty red.  It's really quite interesting.

This afternoon, I think Pogo and I will sit out on the porch for a while and enjoy this lovely weather.  Maybe I'll work on the hat set while we're out there.  First, I want to catch up on my blog reading. 

I want to say a special "Hello" to Angelica.  I've been so worried that she might not be well, and I've finally heard from her.  She has been through some wicked health issues and could use some prayers to keep her in good health.  Be well my friend.  Email me if you can.

Now it's time to take my coffee and head for the porch.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome weekend. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Your crocheting advances lovely.

Made me smile reading that Pogo woke you up for some food, you gave him doggie food and he wasn;t pleased, hahaha.
Well, perhaps he will think twice now before he wakes you up too soon(will he?????????).
with Jan it is still the same. But he called again to the assistant of his doctor, and she arranged he could go for blood control yesterday. Doctor will call him Monday, but then, depending her talk, we have to be firm and ask if perhaps another hospital stay would be better for Jan, and there must be done something about his belly, which is still the same size, and it is bothering him in all kind of ways. and it isn;t a good sign either, i think. He looses a bit of wieght, but I think it is more because he is eating very little than about loosing fluid.
So for now we try not to talk too much about it, but I know he worries the same as I. Not nice situation, there must be a found a solution for it and quick.

Hope you could find your misplaced folder by now. It is terrible not to know where to look for something that suddenly disappeared.
Till next time, dear friend, take care of yourself!

The weather here is getting nice as well and I'm enjoying my deck more and more these days.
Hope your friend is ok, I know how concerned you get when people drop off the scene.
Pete comes here today and we'll soon start our "new life" together.

Thank you so kindly for your prayers. I am not seeing that well for the last 2 days. I did try to read it on Friday but eyes were very bad. I see My Pogo. He is still as handsome as ever. Going now and if you see any typhos you know why. the world is blurry to me now. rheumatologist referred me to an opthomologist but sofar they hadn't sent me an appointment. I will let them know when I return this month and they can do the referral again... Have a great week and send some of the cold weather our way.
