My Apologies To Clyde

June 22, 2021

Good morning.  Gosh, it seems like I've been up all night.  Actually, I did get up early, around 4:30 am.  And I've been busy ever since!  

First, let me apologize to Clyde.  I called him a hamster and he's not a hamster.  Clyde is a guinea pig!  I'm so sorry, Clyde.  If I don't get many cherry tomatoes on my plant, I'll buy you a box of them at the market.  Am I forgiven?

Yesterday, I got a package and I set it aside to open later.  It was the new dresses that I had ordered.  This morning I opened the package and I'm really happy with my new dresses.  But, I had to go online to Amazon and order a few hangars so that I can hang my dresses up.

I like the lounge dresses in the Woman Within catalog.  They come in two lengths.  Short and Long.  I buy the Short, but they fit me as though they were Long.  I'm only five feet tall.

In the top photo, I ordered the Bright Gold Floral short dress.  It will fit me like the long pink dress at the bottom of the picture.  In the second photo, I ordered two short dresses.  The dress at the top left, Evening Blue Vines, and the blue dress on the right, Caribbean Blue Paisley. These dresses are so comfortable and I wear them everywhere.  

I also have a photo of the new baby blanket that I'm making.  I bought the yarn from Hobby Lobby.  It's their line called "I Love This Yarn" and the color is called Parcel & Bow.  I'm not sure what that means, but I love the colors.

We're supposed to get some rain this afternoon (according to my famous phone app) so maybe I won't have to go out and water the plants later.  We'll have to wait and see.

I also bought myself a new book.  This one summarizes and explains all the books of the Bible.  I've read the Bible, (quite a while ago)  but it's very deep and not always easy to understand.  

Now I'm going to do some blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Ooh, I love the yarn you are using for the baby blanket!

Ohhh I really love the dresses Edna. Especially the blue one the model is wearing in the second photo and the lavender one the model is wearing in the first photo. I wrote down Short for the length since I am only 5 feet tall as well. I wonder why I don't get to see these dresses in my phone app that they send me umpteen times a day? UGH I am beginning to regret some of the ads that I like lol.

Have a wonderful day and I am sure that Clyde has forgiven you with the promise of tomatoes... xoxoxo

Great dresses in lovely colors and prints. I am sure they are comfortable to wear.
I think Clyde will forgive you the mistake, hahaha.

Beautiful colors in the baby blanket, so soft and also happy.

Getting up so early is sometimes an advantage, but may be later you can take a short nap?

That book about the explanation of the Bible books seems to me "heavy stuff"to read. Don;t think I would have the patience for it.

Not very great weather here, although this afternoon I did have a time-out in the garden with a cup of tea and a book, in the sun it was nice.

Have a lovely day, my friend and take care.

I bet those dresses are as comfortable as shown in those catalog photos, Edna. The colors in the baby blanket are lovely. Rain will also be coming here shortly and it's good that I did my walking errands early today, post office, library and banking.

Oh my the dresses are cute. so comfy and summery. I love wearing dresses and have many. I chuckled at the hangers. I have boxes of plastic and velvet hangers. My kids and hubby shake their head. You can not believe how many I already gave away. Hanger overload here! I liked the feathers on your first post. I always love your afghans. So sweet.
Take care my friend.
