Good morning. Today will be sunny with temps in the sixties. Yup, temps are definitely getting cooler. It feels good, and it would be nice to stay this way year round, but that is not to be. Leaves are beginning to change colors and some are falling to the ground.
There's not a lot on TV on Sunday mornings, so I start out watching PBS. They have creative programs on beading, metal jewelry, sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, etc. These are all very interesting. I don't have to be doing all these different crafts. It's the learning that is the fun.
Today on the sewing program, author Jennifer Chiaverini was featured with her book "Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker." It sounds like such an interesting book that I've gone to Amazon and ordered a copy. It has a one day delivery, so I can start enjoying this new book as early as tomorrow.
It's the story of Elizabeth Keckley, born into slavery, and her friendship with Mary Todd Lincoln. Elizabeth was a gifted seamstress. She earned freedom for herself and for her son by the skill of her needle. She won the friendship of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln by her devotion.
Now that the creative programs are over, I'll switch over to WE TV and watch Law & Order for a while. I have a cabinet that needs cleaning out, so maybe I can work on that while I'm watching TV. After that, I think I'll make a meat sauce and cook up a pot of spaghetti.
I think I posted about animal overpasses before but it's worth a repeat. Here's a picture of one of these overpasses. They are very effective in saving lives. We should be building these across the country.
Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before getting started on this new day. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
