It's a lovely sunny morning here, but a bit on the cool side. Only 52 degrees F. It's definitely the beginning of a long heating season. I will have to ask SIL Eddie if he can come over and install a brand new thermostat for the furnace. The one we have now is quite old and not always accurate.
I heard from the construction fellow about my windows. They should be arriving in about another week and a half. I also had a couple of fellas out here yesterday to figure out estimates for me on the trim and fascia board work. I should be getting those figures soon, and I don't expect they will be very pretty. The work needs to be done all around the whole top of the house.
I'm going to have to have a play yard built out beside the house, with a fenced in walk way leading to it for Pogo so that he can go outside and run around unchaperoned and still be safe. Yesterday, he went missing for a little while. I looked everywhere, inside and outside, but could not find him.
While I was outside looking, I happened to look up, and much to my surprise, there he was whizzing by on gull. I guess last year's broom ride on Halloween was a little scary for him. After all, it was his first one, so he decided to do a bit of practicing for this year's ride. My Pogo is quite the likable little chap, and the gulls are more than willing to fly him around whenever he is in the mood. I told you my little guy is smart!
Well, my favorite TV program, Project Runway, has ended for this season. Boo Hoo. But, the this coming week the Project Runway All Star program will begin and carry me through the next few months. Thank goodness. I love fashion design. You wouldn't know it to look at the way I dress, (jeans and tee shirt) but I am really fascinated with the creativity involved with this industry.
I dug into my photo archives to find a pretty photo that daughter Audrey took while visiting here. We were at the park and there were lots of gulls sitting around waiting to have their photos taken. I think that's why I love them so much. They actually will sit and let you take their photograph. Isn't this a pretty picture?
I'm taking this nasty medicine for my sore, scratchy throat, and let me tell you it is NASTY! Unfortunately, I have to take it so that I can talk with embarrassing myself. Talking makes me cough. No details needed here. All us ladies know what it's like when we can't stop coughing. I have some phone calls to return, but they will have to wait a day or two.
Now that I have taken care of a few important matters around here, I can focus on making my blog books for this year. Andrea, if you're reading this, we will have your book done in time for Christmas. I know I want mine finished and received within the next few weeks.
Well, now it's time for me to get dressed and chase the vacuum cleaner around for a bit. I also have a few dishes in the kitchen sink waiting to be washed. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
