January 1, 2014
Good morning and welcome to 2014! Here's hoping that today is the beginning of a great new year for all of us. Did you make any resolutions? Or set new goals? I didn't make any resolutions (because I usually don't keep them), but I did set a few goals for myself.
Tamron has recently released a brand new 150-600 mm lens, and I think this adorable little person wants it. First I have to get past the price of this new lens. For a pro, this would be considered inexpensive, but to an amateur it is a bit pricey. Then I have to find a store that carries it, and go there to try it out.
However, I'm pretty sure that I will love it. (Of course, I definitely NEED it!) And, seeing as how I am considering retiring from work this year, I might want to buy the lens before I stop working. I will have to make me a bucket list for my retirement years, and put this lens near the top of the list.
There are some places I would like to go, and people I would like to meet in person. The people would be at the top of my list, then maybe the lens, and then the places. Ah well, this is a project that I will be working on for a while.
It's time now for a page from this year's calendar. For January, I chose a photo of a gorgeous pink rose from one of my rose trees. There's something beautiful about a rose blossoming when it is covered with snow.
Next, I just have to share this lovely little button that I snatched off my daughter's Facebook page. It's just so perfect for me. Isn't this just adorable?
Last night I spent some time online getting as much information as I could about the Inogen G3 oxygen concentrator. I used to have a large concentrator at home, with a couple of the portable canisters, but I never used the canisters because they were so heavy and you can't take them on a plane when you travel.
This new concentrator is much smaller and is portable. It's small enough to carry like a purse with a shoulder strap. And, there are no canisters to bother with. Now I just have to check to see if (or how much of) this is covered by Medicare. Somehow I doubt they will cover it. For us seniors, I think the government thinks that the big bulky machine is good enough. Well, this will be one of my first projects for this year.
Now, for my friends with kitties, I have a few cute images (from the web and my emails) to share with you.
It's coming on time for me to check on the Mrs again. After that, I can start packing up my things so that I'll be ready to go home at seven. Going home is the best part of my working, because when I walk into the house my little Pogo showers me with lots of doggie hugs. He's not very kissy, but he sure does love the hugging! And, I have to admit, I do too!
We have a snow storm coming starting tomorrow, so I'm glad that I don't have to come back to work until next Sunday night. By then, we'll be shoveled out. (Or I should say, snow blowered out!) So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
