It's A Great Day For Creating

July 22, 2020

Good morning.  It's early so it's still gray outside.  I've been waiting for the rain that was forecast for overnight or early morning, but I guess it passed right by us.  I just looked outside and everything is dry.  Lots of ants though.  I rubbed some Peppermint oil on one of the railings and the ants skedaddled.  I guess they don't like Peppermint oil.  

Today I think I'll take a ride to the bank.  It's not very far, just far enough to get my driving wings back.  Maybe I'll even get me an iced coffee from McDonald's on the way home.  They have the best iced coffee.  

I'm watching the Create channel on TV, and they've making a crochet bead necklace.  To be honest, to me it looks really messy and not very attractive.  I would not make this for myself.  However, I would imagine that there are lots of folks who would love this type of necklace.  

Their first project was a crochet tote bag, and now they are making a knit tote bag.  Both of these tote bags look nice and not to difficult to make.  Next will be a show about painting.  I really enjoy that one.  They have different artists at different times so you get to learn a lot of different techniques. If you're crafty, this is a great channel for you.  

Today I'm going to post a couple coloring pages from Dover.  Coloring is a great pastime when you have to stay indoors, so enjoy.

Now I'm off to see if Pogo is ready for breakfast.  I got it out for him earlier but he wasn't ready to get up yet.  Yup, he's a lot like me.  He'll get up when he's ready.  My poor little guy, he needs a haircut really bad.  He's looking like a tiny lion lately.  I try, but he doesn't want to let me trim his hair.  

Leave It To Beaver is on now so till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I love Leave it to Beaver:) Great old show from my childhood. I also need to run to the bank. I just wish they had the drive-thru open so I didn't have to go inside. I need a haircut too, Pogo and I should both get one! Enjoy your day dear friend, hope you get some rain! HUGS!

I had a macrame necklace when I was in the 7th grade! It was very stylish back in the '70s. I even made it myself!

Hope you had a good day. I told Ted once I ever get my cataract surgery and may just drive around all day long. LOL Blessings, xoxo, Susie

HI Edna,
This channel you're speaking of, is it a local channel in your area or is it a cable channel? I don't watch much tv at all anymore but I think I would enjoy this!

I usually spill water over the ants, and that's it. Peppermint oil sounds like a better solution as it discourages them from coming in Thanks for the tip.

I am so hooked on McDonald's iced coffee (sugar free vanilla). I have tried to duplicate it, but mine is just not right. I've been known to plan errands so that I have to drive past a McD's.
