Pink, there is something about the colour Pink. I love the colour but besides that I find it very calming. Blue is supposed to be the calming colour but for me it is pink.It warms my soul and it makes me happy. So there it is Pink is for me. Why this paean to pink?  I am knitting a dishcloth with pink variegated yarn. And it makes me happy.  I do like all the other colours too but pink is my favourite.

I note that my spelling needs a lot of correction according to the American spelling guide. But I was brought up learning the English spellings and using the American ones was cause for punishment in the old style school system under which I was trained. If you were not a good scholar then you could get into bad trouble. Fortunately I was a very good student. Each term we had exams and were then seated according to where we fell on the spectrum of exams. I usually was in first place . One time I was in third place and that was a tragedy for me. I had to work hard to get back to first and that was the first time I had to word for marks. There was a new student and beating her was a challenge but I was up for it LOL.

Today was busy. In the morning I went with Pat for coffee and then to sewing. I had very little to work on as I have no new projects on the go. I made another heart block. Our granddaughter has asked me to make a quilt for her newest baby daughter. So I am working on a heart quilt. I have most of the top done but it still needs a bit more work. Maybe I can get at it tomorrow. If I start at it in the morning I might have more luck. I need to put on borders and then I will make the sandwich. I have the backing ready but need the batting so off to the store I go.

Tomorrow that is.
As for the rest of the day, Ray and I went to the hospital. He had to go there for a few tests and I went with him. I always go with him when he needs to go there. we went to our nearest hospital Burnaby Hospital. We had a coffee in the restaurant there after his visit.

I did not even have a nap. I lay down and read for a bit but that was it. We didn't even have dinner just ate Whatever we could find. But I want to eat some lettuce with celery. That is one of my favourite snacks along with oil and vinegar dressing. On that note I'll close for tonight.
