Good morning. Have you noticed how quietly, and quickly, July has been slipping by on us? It's time to start thinking seriously about gift shopping for the upcoming holidays. Believe me, while you're enjoying August and getting the kids back to school, December will pop right up.
I've been tucking things away for a while now in my giftee draw. Plus a few bags set near by. I like to have all the small stuff done early, leaving me just the bigger items to tend to as the holidays grow closer. It works for me.
On my way home from work Sunday morning, I stopped by a dairy farm that I pass to get a few photos. These are some of the gorgeous critters that were grazing in the pasture.
The second photo was my last shot. This critter was starting to look at me a bit weird, so I thought it best not to upset him and went on my way.
I'm watching a paid infomercial program about the "Tummy Tuck" belt. Wow! You put the belt on, and in just ten minutes, it whips all that belly fat into shape. Voila! Slim belly! Amazing, how some elasticized material can get rid of 40 pounds of unsightly fat bulges. Hmmmm, food for thought!
During the night, the noise from the thunder and lightning woke me up and after that, sleep was not forth coming. So around 5 a.m. I decided to get up and make some breakfast. I cut up potatoes that I cooked yesterday, and browned them in the frying pan. Then I scramble two eggs and pour them over the browned potatoes. Add some black pepper and mix well. Add three or four slices of bacon, and a slice of toast to your plate, and top it off with a cup of coffee. Breakfast fit for a king. (or Queen) Mmmmm!
I had my appointment with the doctor yesterday. A lot of the poison is gone, but there's still a ways to go before it's all gone. 80 percent of the itch is gone too. Spider bites are just plain nasty!
Today is supposed to be hot and muggy, so I think I'll just cool the house down a bit, and maybe catch up on some cleaning. Not my favorite thing to do. However, the dust bunnies are beginning to annoy me so it's time to clear some of them out.
First on my list for this morning is to finish my order for the next blog book. I ran into a problem while placing my order, so I need to speak with customer service and get some help. That's it for the news today. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
