A Bright Morning Message

July 23, 2012

It's a bit cool and damp this morning,  so maybe the rain will be catching up with us today.  It's also early, only 6:25 a.m. and I'll be on my way home soon.   This afternoon, I have an appointment with the doctor for a checkup on the spider bite.  The poison seems to be working it's way out of my system slowly but surely.  The itch has lessened quite a bit, and seems to be controllable with Benedryl. 

The town is re-surfacing the roads here, but at least all the broken stone and gravel have been smoothed out a bit to make travel a bit easier.  Friday afternoon, I had to sit and wait a while for one of the workers to get a machine and smooth it down a bit in front of the Mrs' house so that I could at least get out of her driveway.  Hopefully, the new surface will be down before I come back next Friday.  Here's what it looked like coming to work last evening.

Remember I said how gorgeous yesterday morning was?  Well, on my way home I looked up and there were two clouds shaped like left handed check marks.  My brother was left handed, and it was as though he were up there saying "Here's a fabulous day for you Ed."  It was a nice feeling, and of course, I stopped for a second to grab me a photo.

Last night after the Mrs was tucked into bed, I went online in search of more rescue doggies.  I looked at more than two hundred pages of photos, and it breaks the heart to see so many fur babies waiting for a forever home.  Here's just two of those little guys waiting.  Meet Judy, then Pogo.

Today, I will make some inquiries about these two, and a couple more.  Hopefully, soon, there will be some happy barks in my home again.   I also want to go online later today, and order my next blog book, 2012 Vol. 1.  I can only do six months at a time because of all the photos, and of course my rambling.

Before I forget, let me post the last two parts of "Summer Fun" for you. 

And here are your download links:

Don't forget to stop by Su's blog to pick up her Parts 5 & 6.  While you're there, take a moment to stop and say thanks.  It's really appreciated.

Well, that's it for the news this morning.  It's time to check on the Mrs. and pack up my things to head on home.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

p.s.  To my friend, The Queen Jester, I want to say thank you.  You have such a wonderful way of looking at things.  I never gave the opportunity of a new texture a thought.  Something for me to think about.

I love the Squirrel photos! My favorite backyard critter since I was a kid. :)

The photo of Jasmine with the effects and textures is neat.

The Mrs' street looks like ours does! This week they are replacing the concrete driveway aprons and we'll be kicked out of our driveway for a week while it cures! Guess I'll be dong some house things this week; Not quite able to walk up the block to my cat and back!

Glad the spider bite is finally letting you go!!

I agree that t so sad to see so many furbabies in need of homes. We donate and go to events at Paws and Whiskers but we don't go in often, just when we have something physical to donate of when it's time to sponsor a new cat. It just makes me sad to see all of them in cages.

Thanks for the rest if Summer Fun! It really is a fun kit! Enjoy the cooler temps!!

Hugs, Nani

So glad the spider bite is easing up some. Both those dogs are so cute, I don't know how you'll be able to pick just one. It would be hard not to come back with an entire pack.

Thanks so much for the last parts of this beautiful collab. Glad to hear you are getting better with the spider bite. Judy the white puppy looks like a winner.

Sorry Edna I didn't pop in for a little word in the last couple of days, but you know the reason. I really wasn;t in the mood.
Great your spider bite seems to heal again. The sooner the better.
Love your "art"with the picture of Jasmine in it.
I think it would be nice prited out on canvas!
Love the pics of the squirrel, don't know why, but I seem to have a soft spot for them LOL.
And oh, those two little doggies look sooo cute. I like Pongo!!!
Well, have a great day
