Good morning. Today is starting out rather nicely. It's already 55 degrees F, and the sun is shining. Unless life pops up with something else, Pogo and I are planning on taking a ride to a Petco this morning. They have been having a pretty good sale, and we are hoping to find some new shirts for Pogo.
Yesterday I discovered that I had a doctor appointment. Somehow, I had put it on the wrong date on the calendar. This was not my happiest doctor appointment. It seems that my lungs are not as good as they were last year. I had some blood work done, and I will go back next month for a follow up.
My doctor also changed my asthma medicine back to Advair. A year ago, the insurance company decided that I did not need the Advair and changed my medication to another Brand. The new brand did not work so good, and over the last few months, my breathing has been getting much worse. So now we will see if they will let me have my Advair back.
On a happier note, my Christmas Cactus plant is finally going to bloom. Actually, it already has. I have to take some new photos because this morning I noticed that the biggest blossom has already opened. But here is yesterday's photo.
I also took some photos of my Easter Lily. I didn't do much to this photo other than crop it, but I wanted to share it because it is just so pretty. It looks rather soft and vintagy. (That's a new word that I just made up.)
This morning I am watching a program about space tourism. Smaller space planes (I guess that's what they are called) are being built, and folks will be able to travel in them to outer space for just under $100,000. My gut tells me that this is not such a good idea.
I really don't think it's good for the atmosphere to be having all these vehicles floating about in outer space. And what about the rocket fuel and what the blast off does to the atmosphere? Do you suppose all this stuff we've been throwing up into outer space has played a big part in the big change in our weather patterns? Do you suppose this is a good part of the increase in tornadoes and hail storms?
It's time to change the channel. QVC is featuring some very pretty dinnerware and the accessory pieces to match. No, I'm not buying it, but it sure is pretty to look at. I think my next big purchase might be a new bed. Daughter in law (Janet) recently got a new bed. The top and bottom move up and down, and I believe the mattress is the new memory foam or gel. I think it would ease breathing problems, especially when one has a cold.
So that is one of the things I want to look into soon. I also want to find some new places to go to take photos. My goodness, while I'm sitting here typing, I can see out of the corner or my eye that Pogo is actually eating some of his dog food. Wow, will wonders never cease!!!
I'm thinking I'll have me another cup of coffee, then get dressed. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
