Good morning. It's looking a bit gray and cold out there this morning. Try 34F degrees and foggy, with the weather man promising 41F degrees and rainy. But, it's still better than more snow and below freezing temps.
Well, last night I stayed up late and played cards on my laptop and caught up on a bunch of emails, a catalogue order and blog reading. It's amazing how time flies when you are having fun. After a while of playing, I looked up at the clock and it was 2 a.m. Oh my, time to get ready for bed.
Yesterday was a pretty good day with only a little coughing. I'm (hopefully) definitely on the mend. As much as I shouldn't rush back to work on the weekend, I really need to get back there pretty soon so they will remember that I still work there. I've lost so much work time this past year because of these nasty colds and infections.
I found an absolutely adorable image on the web that I thought I would share with you. There are days when this would make life so much easier for some of us gals. Maybe this lovely lady is wearing what could become a new fashion trend. After all, if it is okay for guys to walk around with their pants around their knees, why can't we ladies wear our new trendy "pullups"?
I've been watching the Weather Channel, and they are very disturbed about the severe drought that is ongoing throughout the whole state of California. They obviously have never read my blog when I've been ranting about building water pipe lines across the country to offset the flooding in some parts and put out the fires in the West.
If we can destroy our ecosystem and wildlife to put in an oil pipeline for Canada, why can't we build a water pipeline to save our people and country. Nothing against Canada, but who will save the rest of the world when we are all done destroying ourselves?
We feed and clothe the world, give them free medical, and anything else they want or need. When we are down to our last cup of water, who is going to step in and start supporting us? Do you really think that anyone will? Instead of spending billions of dollars on getting the news out to all available media forms, can't we use those billions for some water pipelines? How about cutting back all aid to other countries a percentage and use it to save our own people?
Calm down Edna girl. Why bother making noise about any of this. I won't be here when the younger generations have to live with the consequences of man's bad decisions. I care because I'll be leaving behind some very special people. My family. My children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and maybe even some great greats.
This same thought affects all of us. So if you live in or near any of these severe drought areas, try making some noise about putting in water pipe lines while we still have these beautiful parts to our countries.
One of my daughters sent this delightful image (from the web) to me. This little fellow is so adorable, and looks like the ones who climb up and peek into my living room window to remind me that they need more food.
I found this next beautiful image on my daughter's web page. It really touched my heart, and made a lump in my throat. This mother managed to bring all her babies out of the fire and put them in a safe place.
Well, I think I need to get dressed and go look for some mischief to get into before the day slips by. I should clean out my pots and pans cupboard today. DIL Janet gave me a beautiful new set of cookware, so now I shall get rid of some of my old pans. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
