A Wet Spring Day In New England

May 4, 2018

Good morning.  Today is warm and wet.  It looks like the sun is trying to peek out from behind the clouds.  We'll have to wait and see what the day brings.  Meanwhile the plants and lawns are loving the rain.

Yesterday, Pogo and were almost ready to leave for his appointment when the sky opened up and the rains came down.  I dropped him off at the beauty salon and went grocery shopping.  After a while, I went back to the salon to get Pogo and we went home.  Oh my, he is soooo handsome!  I'll take a photo to show off his new "do."

My new yarn order was missing one skein of yarn, and one skein looked like it was dragged on a really dirty floor.  The package had a postal tape on it that read "damaged."  I guess the package got torn and some yarn fell out.  They put the dirty skein in the bag, and I guess they did not see the other skein.  However, the yarn company (Herrshners) is sending me two new skeins of yarn. 

I finally decided on Kitten and Rose Garden yarns for the new dolly dress.  As soon as the outfit is finished, I'll take a photo.  Then, I think I'd like to make a patriotic dress.  Then maybe a purple outfit.  This is fun therapy for my hands.

My new Willie Nelson album came last week, and I love it!  Of course, my favorite song on it is "Something You Get Through."  I'll try posting the video from You Tube here.  Hopefully, it will be okay to do this. 

You know, I just finished this post and most all of it disappeared.  Now I'm starting over.  If there's one thing I don't like, it's to try to remember and re-type a post. 

I went outside for a moment to roll up the door on the greenhouse.  My little pepper plants already have little white flowers on them.  I'll take photos to share on Sunday.  Meanwhile, I have photos from our outing at the park last week.  The first photo shows one of the swans and some of the geese.  The second photo is my daughter Deanne holding her very tired grandson, Xander. 

Now I'm going to take my little laptop out to the porch and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

You and Pogo seem to always be busy. That baby is adorable. I am having computer failures so one day if I do not show up, my computer stopped. I am still using Windows 7 and they do not want to fool with them. I do not think I could ever learn W10 and definitely would not know how to create a new blog.

Hershner's is really good at replacing missing and damaged items. It pays to use companies with good customer service.
Awww Zander is so precious. It is always such a treat to see how big these babies are getting. Such great photos too.
Your tissue dolls are just gorgeous and I love the colors. I wouldn't know where to start in choosing the next colors. But you do have an eye for that.
All kids are working today. All part time. They were all over here together at one point and slowly will come and go.
I am getting my laundry done so I will talk to you later. Give hugs and love to Pogo for me, and have a super day my friend. Beth
