Sunshine promised today

I was happy to sit in the sunshine today, for a couple of hours...The yard was so inviting ..everything is coming up the Lilac's are blooming..and I say every year I'm going to get some deep lavender to add to them...
I'm a little sick of bad weather and bad health...yesterday was the pits...starting having that IBS syndrome again and it kept me in the house and chair knitting...I made my own egg drop soup ..too lazy to make some noodles, so I ate crackers with it.
I'm almost finished with the shawl...just have to bind off and get it blocked...I've got a couple of spots that the pattern was off due to mistakes and the more I tried to fix it the more it messed up...oh well! I'm still not perfect, Yet!! Still it's a beautiful shawl...I'll get a picture up as soon as I can...
The newly planted tomatoes are doing well so far...I can't wait to have a sandwich of them with nothing but mayonnaise :o) makes me happy just thinking of it...and some green fried tomatoes Yummy! I notice my neighbors down in the Valley are digging what looks like might be a garden (too far away to see) I think people are getting wise to plant something to keep the ends together...not much to say today! Guess you all are glad to have my mouth rest :o)...

Virginia,
I really like your blog. I live in western North Carolina and I'm so glad the sun in shining today after all the rain.
We got our vegetable garden plowed on Friday, bought some tomato plants, and can hardly wait for the soil to dry so we can plant our garden. You may visit my blog at: http://blueridgepoet.blogspot.com

I'm so sorry you've been feeling poorly. I know I'm ready for Jesus to come back. Getting older is the pits!

Ginny, I give you a ton of credit for knitting through the bad days. You are amazing! (And the shawl is gorgeous!)

Ladydi, when the bad days come there is always some good to follow, even if you have to do the good yourself...The loveliness of the shawl kept me going.Ginny
