Happy Labor Day

September 4, 2017

Good morning (for about six more minutes).  Gosh, I tried so hard to sleep in this morning, but Joe was up early and making coffee out in the house.  Of course Pogo could smell the coffee, plus he heard Joe out there, so he started barking and eventually I had to get up.  I took Pogo out to the house to have his turkey treat and then I went back to my nice warm covers.

Today is looking like a gorgeous day outside.  I poked my head out for a minute and the temperature felt really nice.  The sun is shining and there's a nice breeze.  I'm thinking that Pogo and I will be able to sit out on the porch for a while after I finish my post.

Today is Labor Day here in the United States.  It's a day set aside to honor the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well being of the country.  (info from Wikipedia)  And this is the flag that waves over our beloved land.  (photo from Google)  May she always wave freely.

Last night I finished the second hat and scarf set, then took photos of the two sets that I've finished.  The first photo is the Sandstone set, and the second photo is the Almondine set.

While Pogo and I were out in the yard the other day, I spotted a couple of bumble bees enjoying the nectar from some of the blooms.  I took some photos with my phone.  This is not easy because the bees never really sat still long enough for a photo. 

It's good to see the bees enjoying my flowers.  Last year we hardly ever saw any bees.  This year, we've had a few of them in the garden.  Hopefully next year there will be even more of them.

Last evening, I started a new scarf and hat set in the Peridot color yarn.  Gosh, it really is pretty!  After this one is done, I'll make one in the Lapis Lazuli color yarn.  I'm hoping that my order of dolly bodies arrives by then so that I can switch back to finishing up my dollies. 

Later this afternoon, I'll see about posting the next pattern on the pattern page.  Then maybe I'll play a bit on my laptop and make a few more quick pages.  I haven't done that in a while.  I think I'll even re-package one of my older kits to post here.  Hmmm, tis going to be a busy afternoon.

Joe just got back from the store and Pogo is barking up a storm.  I think he just loves barking at Joe.  We have a special type of light bulb in the upstairs bathroom, and the bulb blew.  So Joe was out shopping for a new bulb.  He also picked up a couple cases of water for me.  Woo Hoo!  I've been drinking less water lately because I was getting down to the last case.  Now I can splurge a bit and drink lots of it.

Well, that's about all my news for this morning.  Y'all be safe and have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
Your pretty hat and scarves are so gorgeous. You do such beautiful work, it is always a pleasure to see your photos of the things that you make. I just love all the pretty yarns that you use.

I think that your right, that Pogo just loves barking at Joe, wanting to make sure that Joe knows that he is around lol. It is good that Pogo bonded with Joe.
I read last night that Austin Pets Alive here in Austin are asking for Foster Parents. Too bad that Pogo doesn't play well with others!
Odd that I haven't read anything on the news about our local ASPCA. I think that I will go online and see what they are needing today.

Jonathan just took Cisco out for his walk. He gets so excited and he will bark and run to the door and run back to you and then try and dodge the leash! But he will sit finally when he knows the door isn't going to open until he has the leash on.

Better go and strip my bed. Jonathan and I are going to do laundry. Have a great day! Hugs to you and Pogo. xxx Love Cisco and Beth
