Good morning. Boy oh boy did I ever sleep good last night! I did not want to get up this morning but Pogo insisted. The sun is shining this morning, and the temperature is supposed to get up to the mid 30's today. The rest of the week should be in the mid 40's with a day in the mid 50's. Gosh, I hope this upward trend is here to stay.
Today I have another delivery of fuel oil coming. The furnace seems to be drinking it right up as if it were soda. Yesterday the weatherman was saying how wicked high the cost of heating a home this winter was in the mid-west part of the country. He mentioned an average figure of around $2600. If only that was all my bill came to. The cost of heating fuel and electricity is disgusting. I imagine the folks using natural gas are finding their costs are wicked high this winter too.
Just recently, I saw on TV that the president promised a billion dollars in aid to some country. I wonder how many of us folks in this country could have afforded more heating fuel if that billion dollars had been spent on us. There's something wrong with this picture.
Last night I did not spend time cropping photos to post. Instead I got caught up on reading some of my favorite blogs. I really missed this when I was in Florida. So today I will post some of the cute pictures that friends send to me. These are all from the web, and I hope they put a smile on your face.
Well, now I have a few dishes in the sink waiting to be washed. I also have to go to Town Hall to pay a bill, but first I must wait for the fuel oil delivery to get here. Tonight is a work night for me (my friend at work who has been filling in for me needs a night off) so I'm hoping to catch a nap this afternoon. That's my news for today, so till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
