So Where Did Our Moon Go?

January 31, 2018

Good morning.  Brrr, it's cold outside!  I bundled up, grabbed my camera and went outside early this morning to get photos of the moon, but alas there was no moon.  I walked around the yard as best I could to try to find the moon, but there was no moon.  Well, I tried. 

I tried watching the news this morning, but I finally had to change the channel and look for an NCIS rerun.  I get so sick and tired of listening to people talking bad about our President and going out of their way to make him look bad.  We elected him, now everyone needs to put on their big kid panties and let the man try to do his job.  You'd be surprised what we could achieve as a country unified.

Unfortunately, this means that I don't get to watch the news very often.  It's rather sad in a way.  Newscasters are supposed to bring us the news in an honest and unbiased way.  Sadly, most of them don't do this anymore.  Where I once had a lot of respect, I have none now. 

Have you noticed something else about TV that has been creeping in slowly over the past two or three years?  On the Weather Channel, the female weather persons started out all being dressed alike in very unattractive clothes.  Next, came the wicked horrible hair cuts.  Wowsie, the only word for them is ugly! 

This past year, I've noticed that other stations are picking up on the hairdos.  One woman who had stunningly beautiful long brown hair now has blonde hair that has been cut to match this same ugly hairdo.  Other woman on that same channel share the same hairdo.  Are these stations trying to tell us something? 

The women are dressed in super tight clothing, while the men are all dressed comfortably.  Each guy maintains his own style.  So what am I missing?  Is there something wrong with women looking beautiful and keeping their own style?  Some days it's good to be old.

Yesterday I promised some photos of my gorgeous roses and my new crochet tote bag that Deanne brought to me.  Gosh, these roses are just beautiful!  It makes my eyes happy to see them when I waken in the morning.  Thank you Deanne.  I love you.

And here's my new crochet tote bag.  Today I'm going to see about transferring my ongoing crochet projects into it to try it out. 

I took some photos of my new Yorkie calendar, but they still need to be cropped so I'll post them tomorrow.  Meanwhile, another surprise package from a blogger friend arrived in the mail yesterday.  This one contained a most fascinating quilting book.

Each quilt block photo is accompanied by a letter written by a farmer's wife during the 1930's.  I started reading, and oh my, these letters are so fascinating.  The quilt blocks are all so beautiful, and there is a CD included with templates for all the quilt pieces.  Anne, thank you so much. I am absolutely loving this book.

Well, I've been wanting to learn how to make a quilt and take the quilting classes at JoAnn's Fabric shop, so I guess this is the year.  I'm going to have to make a space for a new sewing machine and start seriously checking out which machine I want.  Oh boy, now my year is totally full of projects!  hahaha.

Have you noticed that today is the last day of this month of January?  Tomorrow we start another new month.  A month to celebrate love and new friendships.  So get out your crayons and make a valentine for someone who isn't expecting to get one.  Put a smile on someone's heart.

Now I'm going to refresh my cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Weather with you seems to act kind of the same as in our part of the world. we had some rain, now next few days it will be colder, with some frost overnight, may be some snow here and there.Oh, I hope it will pass quickly and that warmer temps return again.
Looks great for you the bag for your crochet projects! lovely idea from Deanne.
Wonderful that you can make a "to do list"now for the next month and get everything ready for your holiday. That is a nice thing to look forward to.
Hope the oxygen will be better now that you have adjusted it .
I think I will do a bit of designing now, don;t have to bother about dinner, just have to warm up something in the oven.
And I already did some food shopping this morning, along with picking up a new batch of meds for me(the ones I have to use all the time).And also did some ironing, so I guess I can relax now LOL.
Have a wonderful day,
