Good morning. The day is starting off pretty nice here, but I guess we will be having clouds and rain on and off a good part of the day. We shall see. The weather forecast calls for thunderstorms for the next seven days in a row.
Well, sleep was not coming so easily Monday night, and it was daylight Tuesday morning before I finally fell asleep. I got up around 11 a.m. when SIL Eddie came by. By the time I was able to sit at the computer and type post, it was almost mid afternoon. So I decided to take the day off.
I don't know if it was my laptop going crazy or if the internet was having a nervous breakdown, but I was not able to connect with most blogs and websites starting early Monday evening. Even my emails had to wait until Tuesday afternoon before I could open them.
Are any of you out there fans of one of TV's newer shows "Honey Boo Boo"? If so, I want to apologize to you for offending you, but I think this is one of the most disgusting shows on TV. When did watching an obese, ill-mannered child with really bad behavior, and doing rude, disgusting things on national TV become a form of family entertainment?
I am so very unimpressed with most of the entertainment fare that is offered on television. There is so much violence, sex and stupidity in most of the programming. Is it any wonder that I watch the Weather Channel and Build A Word? There were a few programs offering fashion design that I enjoyed, but they haven't been on the air for a while.
In all fairness, I will say that I am so thankful for all the re-runs of Law & Order and NCIS, and the cooking competition shows such as Chopped and The Worst Cooks In America. This year, I have also been enjoying America's Got Talent.
The upside of all this bad programming is that maybe I will spend more time listening to my music collection, and less time watching the boob tube. Who knows, I may even have to get better acquainted with my vacuum to keep myself entertained. Oh Lordy, I was hoping that day might never come. Groan, groan.
Enough of my babbling. I have some photos to share that I took of the water lilies at our local park. I think they are just soooo pretty.
Now I really must get busy here, and put some clothes on. SIL Eddie will be coming by soon to take me shopping. We will probably start at Grossman's Outlet Store. They have some really good buys on building and home improvement supplies. This afternoon, Pogo has an appointment with the doctor. There is a spot on his back that needs to be checked, and he may need a new rabies shot too. I will have to check on that. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
