Good morning. Well, today is comfortably warm, seventy degrees, but it will be mostly cloudy with spurts of rain. We already had some rain during the night, and as the day goes on we will be getting more rain. Actually, it should be rainy for the next two days too. And a little cooler. Sad to say, Indian Summer may be starting to fade away.
Yesterday was rather quiet for Pogo and me. We got to spend some time out on the porch, and we even had a little walk in the yard. I did a bit of holiday crocheting, and finished another nappy cover. This one is Periwinkle Blue. I just have to buy the buttons (two) and sew them on.
Next I started another nappy cover, using the Black and Red yarn. I finished this one last night. I'll have to take a photo with my regular camera because my cell phone doesn't take very good photos of the color red.
I got an email about a nice sale at Vista Print, so I really must get those calendar photos finished today. Once I get the calendars, I can start wrapping and boxing a few holiday items. I also need to go shopping and pick up something nice for my daughter Laura Jean. Her birthday is coming up really soon. She'll be fifty two years old. Aye yi yi! She's my youngest. Goodness, where have all the years gone???
Yesterday we got a photo of Pogo's little friend Cisco showing us his new bed. Gosh, he looks like a really happy camper all stretched out with his blanket. Looking good, Cisco! Enjoy it! Pogo sends you lots of woofs and a great big lick!
Wow, I think the wind just picked up a bit. I looked out my door, and the leaves on the trees out front are doing an energetic version of the Salsa dance. Woo Hoo! Gosh, if only I could move half as good as those leaves move!!
I already had a lot of leaves on the ground, but now there are quite a few more of them. Soon I'll have to get someone to start piling the leaves up and bagging them. We'll have to pick a day that's not quite so windy.
Yesterday I sat down with my yarn catalogue and tried to decide on the colors for the next afghan. Gosh, this is so difficult!! I guess I'll just have to order two sets of colors and make two afghans. Of course, there's no rush to finish them in any hurry. It's just good therapy for my hands.
So I guess my two projects for today will be to work on the calendar photos and to order some new yarn. I can live with that. Who am I kidding? These are both super fun projects!
Now I'm going to finish my coffee and then it will be time to wash the dishes. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
