Just 48 More Days Till Spring!!!

January 31, 2011
*
Good morning everybody. I don't know what it's like outside yet, as it is still very dark out there. It's only 5:20 am, but I thought I would post now, then I can maybe get a couple of errands done when I get home this morning. (I'm still at work.) Can you believe? January is just about gone!! We just have to make it through the day, and then it will be February. Then, there will only be seven weeks left till Spring!!!!! Actually just 48 more days!!!!!
*
Tomorrow the CU Blog Train will be starting, and next week I will start posting a brand new kit for you. Once Miss Su is well and back on her feet, she will join me in posting, but for now I will give you my parts. Gosh, I hope she is well soon as I was hoping she could join me for a while when I go to Florida for my vacation.
*
At least, I think I'm still going on vacation. There always seems to be something more important that's needing attention, and life somehow manages to mess things up when it's vacation time. But I'll keep my toes and fingers crossed and hope that all goes well this year. So far, snow removal and heating oil have been using up all of my resources.
*
Today, my son will be going home from the hospital. Gary Jr, I'm praying for a speedy recovery for you. Tomorrow, Dee Dee will be hobbling over to spend some time visiting with me. It's sounding like my angels are working overtime here.
*
Today I have some rather pretty winter photos to share. These are some of the ones that I took yesterday morning on my way home from work. Gosh, you won't believe this, but I have just spent 20 minutes trying to upload three photos!!! Blogger is having bad hair day, I guess.
*
This first photo shows the tops of some bushes covered in thick frost. Even the chain link fence is all frosted over. I thought it was so pretty. It just looks like icy fringe.
*




This next photo was taken in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot. I just noticed that I must have found the only mended link on the fence. See the round link? But you can see how the frost is making everything look so beautiful.
*






















At the back of the parking lot, there is a hill with lots of tall weeds and brush growing there. They looked so hopeful, that I had to take photos of them too. There are no blossoms, yet they are still quite beautiful waving against a blue sky.
*





















Well, I think it's time for me to finish up some last few things here. My replacement will be here in an hour, and then Miss Tootsie and I can go home. Till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
*
Hugs, Edna B.

Again, how can something so pretty, be so cold?? That last photo looks like a white sand beach! Great photos, Edna!

The snow is coming to get us too this time. I've already scheduled three visits from our plow-guy this week! Not looking for pity, I know you've had it so bad this year, but we're about to REALLY feel your pain! I hope you do get your trip to Florida this year! Can you ask the plane to fly over Toledo and drop a line? I'll grab on quick! :)

Have a great day and try to keep warm and dry!!
