A Tough Of Spring Today

February 8, 2019

Good morning.  Today is overcast, but the temps are going to get warm.  If you live around here, enjoy it.  Starting tomorrow, we have all normal cold Winter days coming.  No complaints here because Spring is coming soon.  Just thirty nine more days.  Woo Hoo!

Well, my dolly dress is coming along just fine.  I had picked out a yarn to use for one of the ruffles, but after finishing two rows of the ruffle, I just did not like how it looked.  So I ripped it out and started over with another yarn.  I have just one more ruffle to finish and then I can try the dress on the doll.  After that, I can decide how to accessorize the dress. 

I'm thinking that the next dress is going to be in shades of pink.  I only have three dolls, so I obviously won't be making very many of these.  Sigh, what a shame.  I love dolls.

This morning, I've been watching SHOPLC on TV, and I'm getting addicted.  From midnight to 10 a.m. everything is under $10.  Most things are $9.99 and shipping is only $2.99.  It's not all jewelry either.  They have a nice selection of items. 

Yesterday, I made the appointment for Pogo at the salon.  Next week is going to be busy for sure.  On Wednesday, Pogo has his doctor appointment, and on Thursday he will go to the salon.  I also got a call from the Town, and they will be sending out their inspector next Tuesday to check out the wiring that was done when the furnace was replaced.  By Friday, I'll be needing a nice nap.

I also picked up some new scrapbook kits and spent a couple hours working on a new quick page.  I get lost in time when I do this.  You know, I seem to use a lot of kits designed by Tiny Turtle Designs to make my quick pages, so I think it's only fair that I give you a link to her store.  Just click on her name and it will take you there. 

Now I have to change the TV station.  These folks are starting to tempt me into buying.  It's time to put my game shows on.  I still have to pay the house insurance when the bill comes in this month, so I really have to be good.

Today I have a couple of Dover's coloring pages for you.   These will give you something fun to relax with over the weekend.  Enjoy.

Now I'm going to do a bit of blog reading before looking for some fun mischief to get into today.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

It's been a long time since I've checked my reading list. Just doing too much other stuff it seems. I love the drawings in this book.

So very glad that your feeling better. I made a blend of my own tea a few weeks ago and I love the ritual I have of "Having Tea." It is my little treat during the day when I am really stressed or in need of some quiet time. I just love Dover.

I am headed to bed. I haven't been to bed yet. Nathan was up with me and we were talking so that kept me awake and engaged in a lively conversation. Have an awesome day and I will talk to you later on.. Hugs to you and Pogo.. Beth

So happy that you seem to feel better every day now from the cold. Might also have something to do with the new medicin, who knows?
You just take it easy and stay warm and take lots of naps, because next week already you will have to do lots of things.
Hopefuly you will have some nice weather when you have to go out for Pogo to his groomer and doctor's appointment.
some sunshine always is good, and even better when it is joined by some nice temperature.
So good to know that deanne came by several times with something nice to eat, so you didn;t have to bother too much about that. She's such a sweetie!!
yes, in our garden too already some things are showing buds, and some bulbs show some life, like several daffodils and the snowdrops are blooming.
We will have this week some rather good temperature, up to later in the week to 10C! Wow, that is not bad.
ou always find new things to do, isn;t it? Now you have again 3 dollies you can make, hahaha.
Well, haveto see if can put up a liittle blogpost,
take care, have a wonderful week, hopefully you get rid of the cold completely in a few days.
