Good morning. It's looking like another gorgeous day outside. Pogo and I are watching a repeat of some of America's Got Talent on TV. I missed a lot of these acts when they were first on, so this is great.
Thanks to Jimmy Dean, I have just finished, and enjoyed, a breakfast of eggs, potatoes and sausage. Nuke it, add a little black pepper, and yum, yum! Sounds like I never cook, huh? Well I don't cook as often as I used to, but thanks to frozen meals, I don't go hungry. Cooking for one just isn't much fun. Maybe this week I'll make up a big pot of pasta and meat sauce. This will be fun because then I share it with who ever wants some.
I do have news to share this morning. SIL Eddie bought me a gift yesterday, and Joe got it set up on the front porch. It's a locked mail box for packages. I have wanted one of these for so long. Now I won't have to worry about rushing home when the mail lady leaves packages of medicines. Here's a photo of it. Isn't it a beauty?
I will also share a great gift that my sister in law, Edie, made for me. It's a bowl made from a 78 LP record album. I was going to explain how to make one, but it's best if you go to You Tube and look up "How To Make A Vinyl Album Bowl". There are lots of videos for this. Be sure to watch a few and pick the one that is easiest for you. Be sure not to use a baking temperature of more than 200 degrees. (no matter what the video says). Here's what my bowl looks like.
And here's a close-up of the album that Edie used to make the bowl. Look at those fabulous songs! I listened to this music when I was just a very young girl. Oh my, the memories!
Today is Mandarin Orange Monday, and I have a gorgeous orange lily (from the Mrs' garden) to share with you.
And, because I'm feeling so chipper this morning, I have a new freebie for you. I got a lovely pink flower graphic from the The Graphics Fairy, and had a bit of fun with it making a border and a page edge. Have fun with it.

For those of you who want to know how small Pogo is, he is up to six pounds now and wears a size small shirt. Sometimes the shirt is too big, but a turn in the dryer usually shrinks it down to size. When I first got Pogo, he weighed 3.7 pounds, and he wore a size extra small shirt. Lots of good loving and good food, and he has gained about two and a half pounds this past year.
That's it for today. Now I want to spend some time playing with Pogo. He is snuggled up against me waiting patiently for me to finish this post. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
