Is That Green I See In My Garden?

February 7, 2019

Good morning.  Tis still a bit nippy here in New England, but Spring will be here soon, so hang in there.  While looking out the kitchen window yesterday, I noticed what looked like bits of green in the little garden beneath the window. 

I gave my phone to Joe and asked him to go out and take some photos for me, so he did.  And guess what?  There were lots of little bits of greenery poking up through the ground.  My goodness, Spring really is coming!  Have a lookee!

Gosh, do I have to say how happy seeing these little green sprouts makes me?  It's a sign that Spring is coming and will be bringing warmer temps with it.  Yes!  Yes! Yes!

I've been watching SHOP LC.COM this morning, and oh my, what beautiful jewelry they have!  And the prices just can't be beat.  They do sell other items too, but my love is for the jewelry.  I just love gem stones.  I love rocks of all kinds.  As a little girl, I used to collect all sorts of beautiful rocks that I found on the ground.  I still have a few of my rocks left.

Yesterday I promised a photo of the new dolly dress pattern.  So here it is.  Isn't this pretty? 

I started working on the dress with a shade of orange yarn.  (Salmon)  The dress is almost finished.  I just have to finish all the ruffles, and then I can start on the accessories.  I have to say that I'm really having fun.  When she is finished, I'll take a photo of my new dolly.

I can't believe how quickly time is flying by.  Do you realize that in three weeks, Pogo and I will be packing our suitcase?  I just hope that once we get to Florida, time will slow down a bit so that we can relish our time there. 

Speaking of Pogo, my little guy is expanding his tastes a bit.  Deanne brought me a stuffed pepper for my supper yesterday, and Pogo shared it with me.  Folks, it was delicious!  Thank you Deanne, and woofs from Pogo.

Look at my poor baby's raggedy hair do.  I really must make him an appointment at the salon, but I was hoping to get his doctor appointment and travel letter out of the way first.  I'll have to give his groomer a call today to see what she has for openings. 

I've just taken Day 3 of my new medicine.  I don't know how to tell if it is working, but my chest doesn't feel heavy any more.  So I guess that's a good sign.  I'll give the doctor's office a call next week to see if I'll be needing xrays.  I most likely won't, but I'm not taking any chances. 

Last night, I felt like something sweet so I baked some Mixed Berries muffin mix in a cake pan.  Oh yum, it did the trick!  I used a cake pan because I couldn't find my muffin pan.  My berry cake still tasted awesome! 

I'm not sure what I'll do today to keep busy.  Lord knows there's plenty here for me to do.  But I'm sure I'll think of something.  Right now I'm going to make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh Yes!!! Those bits of green made me happy to see too! Spring is really right around the corner. I am seeing lots of green here too.

I just love the new dolly pattern and the doll. How beautiful. Do you know who that little dolly reminds me of... Ellie Mae Clampett from The Beverly Hillbillies. That was actually my first thought when I saw her. She is just beautiful and I think that she will be a big hit in all of the beautiful colors that you choose.

I love stuffed peppers and it is wonderful to see that Pogo does too. Stouffers makes some good ones. Do you know if Audrie likes them? I will have to pick us up some for our lunch or dinner while we are in Florida. I am getting pretty excited!

I have a doctors appointment and I have things I need to do before I have to leave. Have a great day! Hugs to you and Pogo... Beth

You wouldn't believe we had a temp of 82 degrees yesterday. When I was outside cleaning my garden beds I realized I was getting hot, so I said I had better go inside but I never checked the temp. Last night when I was watching the news the weather guy said we had a temp of 82 degrees. This is February and I know we probably is going to have another scorcher this summer..I laughed when I saw my baby Pogo off in that plate. I saved the photo in my Pogo folder. He is wooly but so cute. Don't have him groomed until you think the cold weather is gone for a while. My boy might get sick. Pogo gotta stay healthy. (lol) Have a good day and stay healthy.

Glad you are doing better. Your trip will be a great healer for you and Pogo. Love that doll.
