Good morning. Oh my, today is starting out soooo gorgeous! It's sunny with a light breeze. The temperature is 71F degrees and headed for eighty degrees. It's been wicked warm, so today is like a gift. I went out earlier and watered my plants. Then I just stayed out there for a while breathing in all that wonderful cool air.
Yesterday my granddaughter Mia (expecting first baby in February) had a gender reveal party. IT'S A GIRL!! Next I'll have to wait until Mia and Jarod decide on a name for this precious new baby. Of course, I'll post it as soon as I know.
Yesterday, I felt like working on something new for a while so I started a shell stitch baby blanket. It's a new pattern to me and I had to make a few adjustments to make it the size that I want. After several hours of ripping it out and starting over, I finally got a few rows done. I'm using "Iced Sugar" yarn by Hobby Lobby.
I woke up a few times during the night, One of those times, I pulled on the chain to the ceiling fan to change the speed and whoops! I broke the chain. It put the fan on the fasted speed and the chain flew up and around the light globe beneath the fan blades.
This is not good. I am not about to climb on my little ladder to try to fix the fan. Nope, I don't need to be falling. So I left the fan spinning away at top speed. Finally, I figured out how to get the chain down off the globe by using a grabber. I have this marvelous invention, but I never think to use it. It worked! Here's a picture of a grabber for those of you that might not know what I mean. Mine is yellow and black and just a wee bit different.
Gosh, I haven't had my breakfast or any coffee yet and I'm already getting tired. But then, I have done a few things already. Watered the plants, washed my hair, got my banking stuff ready, chatted with a couple of the dwarfs, took a photo of my crocheting and spent a little time outdoors. Hmmm, that's like a whole day for me.
I want to explain something about the comments left on my blog. Normally, they go into a folder and once or twice a day I look at them to make sure there is no spam, and they are posted. Yesterday, I changed that. Now they will get posted immediately. At least until the spam starts building up again, then I'll change it back.
Now I want to get something to eat and make a cup of coffee. It's been too hot to have it lately, so I've been drinking water with my breakfast. Then I'm off to read some blogs. Before I go, let me share this adorable picture that I borrowed from the web. This is for all us older gals.
So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
