The Special Plan, For The Day

This morning, I woke up at just past 6am. I made my way to the kitchen, got my dog his food, started coffee, then made my way to the red couch, in the living room. The TV went on, and, as I watched the news about the HORRIBLE hurricane Irene, I crocheted my Granny Rectrangle rainbow afghan. I must admit...I am actually happy my aunt moved away. At first (if you will remember), this particular was to be for her. But, I must admit...I am kind of LOVING it. I am SO FRIGGIN HAPPY, that I get to be greedy, and keep it for myself. I am so close to be finished with it. I have a few more rounds to do, in Red Heart Mexicana. Then, I will work a border, in purple yarn. I am not really sure what type of border I will do yet. I may just do another round, the same as the rest of the afghan. Or, I may choose something fancy-schmancy. I guess that only time will tell.
After crocheting/watching news/drinking two GIGANTIC cups of coffee, it was just shy of 8am. And, I had to go out, and water the garden. Oh joy! Even this early, it was BAKING outside. And, living on 4 acres of land, we don't just have one small garden. We have numerous gardens, sort of scattered across the property. Total time, to water the gardens...Roughly 45 minutes. By the time I got inside, I was sweating up a storm. (It is horrible, that it is SO DAMNED HOT, so early in the morning!)
I took a quick shower, then got dressed, in HORRIBLY UGLY stay home clothing. I made my way to the computer, and did my schoolwork. (Did I tell you guys that I got a 100% on last weeks written assignment? YAY! GO ME!!!) Then, blog time.
When I was doing my schoolwork, I decided that I want today to be a day, when I remember my aunt Betty. Sure...I remember her almost daily. But, I want to devote today to her. It may sound weird. But, there it is.
So, when I crochet today, it will be my mother's afghan. That will be all I work on today. I will look at that one little row, in this afghan, and I will allow myself to remember all the GREAT times, I had with my aunt. I just feel like I need a day, to devote to these memories.
So, I am off. Time to start.

Lucky you to have so much garden and space! Any chance of photos?

I'm looking forward to seeing one of the rainbow afghan too.

I hope you enjoyed your day devoted to Aunt Betty.

As an FYI, Hurricane Irene wasn't as bad as I was expecting here in my region of PA. It wasn't even bad for my first hurricane experience.

Awesome Job on the 100%
