My Little Guy Is A Flyboy!

October 19, 2013

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.

I am reading this and I am hoping you are right ... that would be great!

I have to love the Pogo Seagull photo ... he looks down right comfortable way up there. He is not only smart ... he is a brave little boy. I love your idea of making a play yard for him with a walkway ... trick will be to get him to use it without you. He is very used to having you at his side when he is out. But once he gets a sense of his freedom, he will love it.

Yu are doing a lot of work on your house for this time of year. I hope the weather holds out so you can get it all done. I am having problems getting my yard work done because it has been so wet and cold. I did finally get my lawn mowed today, then went to do a little shopping. Ran into an old friend and we were having a nice conversation until she started spouting Fox News talking points ... it turned me off quickly. I knew better than to argue with her, but it makes me sad that people have ceased to think for themselves and figure out what makes sense.

It is getting dark so early now. It has been a long time since we have eaten our dinner with it dark outside. We have to have the lights on and Izzi is disgusted because it takes a big bite out of her outside time. She thinks we could still play Frisbee in the dark and she probably could, but not me. I can't see that well with the lights on ... hmmmm.

Well, it's time to start cooking dinner so I am headed downstairs ... You have a nice evening, Edna.

I’m so sorry to hear about your viral infection. :( When I read your post from yesterday last night it inspired my dinner; buttered noodles with parmesan and garlic. I agree; Mmm-Mmm! But yucky medicine is a nasty contrast.

Imagine Pogo giving you a scare like that to go flying! I love the picture though; good catch!

I’ve been doing, maybe too much, picking up and cleaning today and I’m really kinds worn out tonight. Still staying with the TV, reading during the commercials; these games have all been close and exciting. (Except the one we were at, we won but it was the least exciting game this series) I’m cheering for whichever one gets top the World Series and not matter which team, the Cardinals will have their work cut out for them!

Commercials are ending, back to the TV!

Hugs, Nani

Always costing a lot to keep a house tip-top. That are no things to love.
Your Pogo is really brave, to take a flight so high in the sky LOL!! Great picture.
Oh, that fenced playyard for Pogo sounds a good idea! He can run around whenever he likes, and you don;t have to worry where he might be.
May be Eddy can help you with this??
Your cold is still hanging around, yak, and the medicins are always nasty tsting.
Hope it will pass away very soon!
Take care,

He looks very comfortable perched up on that gull, very funny indeed. I'm going through some of my photoshop books and trying to learn a few new tricks.
