Good morning. Well, it was sunny, but now there are a few clouds popping up now and then. Today will be cool, 61 F. That's to be expected though. After all, it is Autumn. I'm just a bit sad to see the nice warm temps going away.
Well, I must say, last night was not a bit dull. The Mrs did not to go to bed yet, so I decided to boil some eggs and make her an egg salad for today's lunch. I put the eggs on to boil, and a couple minutes later Mrs changed her mind and wanted to get ready for bed. So off we went to the bedroom.
Things were going fine when all of a sudden the fire alarm began making a very loud racket. I ran out of the bedroom and found smoke coming from the kitchen. Yup, you guessed it!! Those forgotten eggs were the culprit. All the water had boiled away, the eggs became black funny looking things and the pan was burned and stuck to the stove burner.
I shut off the stove and put the pan in the sink, and then went to shut off the alarm. Meanwhile, the alarm company called on the phone to ask if we needed the fire department. Embarrassing???? I said no thank you and explained what had happened. Then the lady on the phone talked me through getting the alarm shut off and reset.
Through all of this, the Mrs was quite excited as she rode around the house on her scooter wondering where the firemen were. By now, I had the doors and windows opened to let out all the smoke. It wasn't very cold outside, so this worked out pretty good. After a while though, the house did start to get cool so I shut everything. The Mrs was quite the happy camper when she finally climbed into bed and fell right to sleep.
For photos this morning, I dug this cute little woodpecker out of my archives. I save all my photos, so there is always something to post here. This photo was taken at work, but I have some of these little fellows at my feeder too.
I also have a photo of one of the Mrs' gorgeous floral bouquets. She always has some of the prettiest flowers on her table.
Yesterday at work, the Mrs was not happy about the fact that Pogo was there with me. So I called her family and told them that I would not be working days anymore. I don't have a daytime sitter for Pogo and I refuse to shut him up in the pantry for nine hours while I'm away at work. This works for me because I was wanting to cut my day shift out soon anyway.
Well, that's my news for this morning. Now I want to play with my little guy for a while before I start moving a few things around here. Tomorrow the carpet cleaners will here early in the morning. I can't wait for everything to be done so things can get back to normal around here. It will be nice though to have the carpet looking new again.
So, till tomorrow, I wish everyone beautiful sunshine. Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
