Good morning. Well, it's here. Today is your last chance to get your taxes filed on time. You have until midnight tonight to get them postmarked and in the mail. Or sent by email. Whatever your pleasure.
This looks like it should be a pretty good week weather wise. Temps are supposed to be in the high 50's to mid 60's F all week. I can definitely dig it!
Well I made it through my long shift. To be honest, it wasn't so bad. I set up my laptop and showed the Mrs lots of photos. After that, we blog hopped for a while. She said she just "can't get over how people all over the world can chat with just a little laptop". She stayed in a pretty good mood for the rest of the day and evening.
When I got home this morning, my little guy was so happy to see me. Wow! What a great way to start the day. It's a great feeling having Pogo squirming and wriggling in my arms and rubbing his little face all over mine. You just can't beat fur baby lovin'.
Right now, I'm watching all the bad winter weather updates on TV for other parts of the country. Gosh, winter just does not want to quit! Some folks are being buried in tons of snow. The newest winter storm, Yogi, is already dumping more snow in places that already have more snow than they know what to do with.
In North Dakota, they are worried about the flooding when all the snow starts to melt. I have an idea. Why not load the snow on to railroad cars and send it to the dry areas of the country. Can this be any more expensive than repairing all the damage from severe flooding? I tend to think it would be the cheaper way out. Oh well, just a thought.
This morning, I have Parts 3 and 4 of "Spring Is In The Air" for you. I can't give you better weather, but I sure can help you make cheery scrap pages. Here is my preview, followed by your download links.

Don't forget to stop by Su's blog later this morning, and pick up her two parts. While you're there, don't forget to take a moment to say hello and thank you. This is so much appreciated.
Today is also Mandarin Orange Monday. I took a photo of a beautiful new vase that came with some of the Mrs' Easter flowers. I just love the shape and colors on this little vase. However, I really need it to be orange so I blended it with a layer of orange, using the "Difference" blending mode in Photoshop. I was happy with the results, so I stopped playing right there.
This morning, I picked up breakfast at McDonalds. Sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuit and coffee. I shared the sausage and eggs with Pogo, and right now he is curled up next to me. His little belly is full and he is a happy little camper. He and I make a good pair. It doesn't take much to make either of us happy.
The daffodils are blooming outside my door, so I'm headed on out to take a few photos. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a gorgeous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
