Good morning. It's only 2:30 a.m. and I'm awake so I thought I would type my post now. Then maybe I'll be tired enough to fall back to sleep. We had a busy day yesterday learning how to use our cell phones. Audrey has been teaching Wanda and me about all the fun things we can do with our phones.
Up to now, I hve only making and receiving calls with my phone. Now I've learned a few things about using the camera on it, and I can check my blog on it. I'm learning how to use the voice mail, and I may even put a couple of games on my phone.
We did not get the rain that we were expecting, but we may get some thunder showers today. I can't complain because the temperatures here have been awesome. High 70's and low 80's for the days, and just a bit cooler for the nights. Perfect!
Pogo must be feeling a bit better now because he's starting to be his perky self again. He has been winning over Wanda's heart. (He's quite the little flirt!) Check out this adorable photo. Hmmm, I wonder what he's telling her.
Late afternoon, we went to Old Town so that the girls could explore the Minerals & Rock Shop. This is such a fun and interesting little store filled with all sorts of wonderful goodies. The mineral rocks are so beautiful, and it takes a while to pick out just the right ones. Here, Audrey and Wanda are having a grand time picking out some of their favorites.
As you can, the girls are quite happy with their purchases. Next we walked around and peeked into a few other little shops. At the General Store there were a couple of very old trucks on display; a beer truck and a pickup truck.
After this, it was time to head back to the condo. My ankles were getting quite swollen and I needed to get off my feet. This swelling doesn't usually last more than a week or two, and only happens once a year or less. So for that, I'm thankful. (Although it could have waited another week or two to start up!)
While typing, I have polished off a cup of peach ice cream. Oh yum yum!! Earlier, after supper, I enjoyed some very tasty pie made from lemon pudding and ??? and a graham cracker crust. Audrey hasn't shared the recipe with us yet, but oh my that pie is delicious!!
Later this morning, we are hoping to head out to a couple of local ponds to find some water birds to photograph. I've seen a few so far, but not when I've been in a position to take any photos. The girls have been taking some great photos of the local flowers and small birds, and I'll be sharing some of those photos over the next few days.
Now I'm going back to bed and try to get a few more winks before the girls wake up. So till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
