Mr. President, you done good

It's been a much better day today with sunshine and temps in the 50s. I had errands to run and that took up all afternoon but since I did a pretty thorough cleaning job yesterday it's not a big deal. I'm almost done with the baby hats. I've got number 39 on the needles right now. I'll be so glad to finish them up.

A woman at church wants me to knit her a vest and provided the yarn for it. For church family I don't take money but ask them to donate whatever they would think the item worth to the church. I feel better that way rather than taking money from people I love. I've been getting some ideas for a pattern and have selected three I'm going to work from, taking a bit from here and a bit from there.

On the negative side, my seedlings are too tall so I had to take the plastic cover off. Hannibal ate 6 of my tomato plants so I'm back to square one on them. I've got to figure out how to keep him from the table. Aside from boxing it in with wood panels I don't know how to keep him away so...wood panels it is.

I don't have a lot of luck with gardening.

For the record, I'm very pleased that President Obama signed the health care bill and while it is flawed, it's a start. I get so tired of all the posturing on the part of the nay-sayers that I can barely talk to people who are posting such nasty, mean-spirited things on facebook about the President and about our country.

And for the record: no this isn't socialism, not even on the road to socialism, not even on the same planet as socialism. What it is, is a meager attempt to provide what we, as a nation, should have been providing all along instead of selfishly whining about what's mine. Thou shalt not share seems to be the mantra of the opponents of health care for all.

'Nuff said.

Off to put my feet up for a while and think about what to fix for supper.

I used to be against health care and then I began to ask on forums with people who came from countries other then the USA how they felt about their health care system. All of them spoke very positively about the care that they received. That radically changed my mind.
