I'd say "good morning" but I'm probably the only up right now. Last night, I slept from supper time till almost midnight. However, that just means that there will be no more sleep for a few hours. So here I am.
It's 3"45 a.m., and I've already cleaned out a few piles of stash and filled a bag of trash. Well, it's mostly paper recycle trash. I tend to let magazines, ads and junk mail pile up. But then, before I can toss it out, I have to go through everything to remove any of my own personal information including name and address, etc. All of this goes into a big bag marked "SHRED".
I also have another bad tendency of filling up any clean flat spaces. Table, countertop, etc. This one annoys me and I am working to change it. I save a lot of paper stuff, and it's time now to get rid of a lot of the "important" stuff that I have been hanging on to. You know, things like Photoshop tutorials dating back to 2006. And papers from classes that I took over the past decade or more. I'm thinking that it is safe to toss these things out now.
So this, and washing my floors, is what I've been doing for the past few hours, and now I'm beginning to wilt. I think that once I have finished this post, I will tuck myself back into bed and maybe catch a few more winks.
I was going through some old photos, and came across one of my oldest daughter, Audrey all dressed up in her pretty Christmas dress. She was about two in this photo. It's a Polaroid photo and all the colors are fading so I tried to brighten it up in Photoshop. Who would ever guess that this beautiful dainty child would take up Taxidermy in her adult years?
I also have a photo of one of the Mrs' roses that are still blooming. I love these Knockout Roses. They bloom right up until the snow freezes them.
I don't know if we'll have rain or sunshine later this morning, so I have a photo that I took one other morning when the sun was first rising. The birds like to sit in the tree tops and bask in the sunshine.
I've finished my cup of cocoa, so I'm going to head on back to my little bed. Wherever you are, I hope your day is sunny and warm. Till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
