Again with the below freezing temperatures. Brrrrr. Although not good for the citrus growers in FL I believe this weather is good for some of the fruit trees here in GA. At least that's what I've been told by some of the old timers in the area. Too bad I don't have fruit trees. I used to but the tree rats, I mean squirrels, ate everything before I could get anything. So, between the tree rats and the deer, I can't grow edibles dang it. Hmmmm, I wonder how much it would cost to put a 10-12 foot high fence around the garden?
It warmed up enough yesterday afternoon for me to take down the Christmas lights on the porch. I must say they did put out a lot of light....moreso than the ones I have for everynight use on the stairs. They're definitely keepers for next year.
I'm beginning to get everything together for our classes on the cruise. Less than the last time, thank goodness. It's interesting that they want all sharp instruments at the top of a checked bag. Can't blame them really. One can do a lot of damage with a rotary cutter. I've cut myself accidently with mine by just brushing against the blade. (Obviously I wasn't paying too much attention 'cause I know just how sharp the blade is.) Anyway, I'm beginning to get excited about the trip. It will be nice to have the mother/daughter time.
I've managed to iron on the label on the quilt and have the first shawl blocking. Wooo hooo! Can't wait to get the second shawl done.
I'm off to do something.....even if it's wrong. Have a good day, y'all.
