It's Good To Not Be Tired!

August 23, 2012

It's another beautiful morning here.  And something is working because I actually got a few hours sleep last night, all in a row.  Gosh, it surely feels good.  I was beginning to get worried about always being so tired that I just wanted to crawl back into bed.  I got up a couple of hours ago and still have the energy to do a couple of things around here. 

Yesterday, Pogo got a present.  Janet's sister sent him a little plaque for the wall (this is for me) and a bag of doggie treats.  I cut a couple of the treats up into tiny pieces and Pogo had himself a really nice treat.   The plaque reads:  "Paw Prints And Pet Hair Enhance My Personal Style."  Yup!  That's me!

My little Pogo has wiggled his way into everyone's heart.   Even though he is not very cooperative in the potty training department, one can't help but love him.  And, he has totally taken over my fuzzy green blanket.   As soon as the blanket comes out of the dryer, Pogo can't wait to curl up on it.  Here's a photo I just now took of him.  How can anyone not love him?

I have some photos to share that I took last Friday morning.  I was looking through the screen door, and couldn't believe my luck.  There was a hummingbird outside feasting on the evening primrose.  I grabbed my camera and shot these photos through the screen.  Opening the door would have alerted the hummingbird to fly away.

The first photo is one of the originals.  The close-ups  have been cropped and tweaked with auto contrast and unsharp mask in Photoshop. 

Now I want to get dressed and get started on a few things around here.  I've been neglecting so many things these past couple of weeks while I've been tired.  Gosh, it's good to not feel tired!  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Pogo is so sweet with your green blanket! I "used to" have a white blanket with multicolored polka dots. I love that blanket. Bur we call it "Carla's polka dot blanket" now. Same as Pogo; she owns it. :)

Amazing to be able to get a picture of a hummingbird They're so small and so fast. The close-ups are incredible!

Now, I'm getting ready to watch the ends of the baseball games (Boston and Cincinnati) and get ready for bed myself.

Hugs, Nani

Glad to read you had some good sleep. And yes, it really feels different, you do feel much more ready to do some things. Hope it stays this way!
Picture of Pogo is absolutely adorable. He's a great small guy!

Well, have a wonderful day
