Good morning. It's quite early, so it is still dark outside. Last night, the cooler temps moved back into our area, so I turned the heat back on. This whole week will be cool with a bit of rain. I suppose it's to be expected. After all, it is Autumn.
Well, the TV saga continues. Friday afternoon, Joe and I went food shopping, and when I got home poor Pogo was rather upset. It seems that the TV screen went on the fritz again. I quickly unplugged the TV, and plugged it into the new power surge strip that I had just bought. When I turned the TV back on it was working just fine.
Ah, but that's too easy. A little while later, the screen went to all squiggly lines and that was all she wrote. It was totally fried! Here's a photo of what I was looking at. I sent the photo in a message to my SIL Eddie and asked if he could stop by and take the TV out and set my bedroom TV up in the living room. I spend most of my time in this room.
Yesterday afternoon I spent some time on-line shopping around for another TV. I finally decided on one that I found at Best Buy. It is the same size as my other TV, 40", and the price was good. Also, I still had my $100 gift certificate that I got when I bought my new phone at Best Buy, and I was able to apply it towards the new television. Super!!
There was one more piece of good news. The shipping was free, and my TV should arrive by next Monday. Obviously this put me in a super duper mood. I spent the rest of the afternoon putting a few more rows on the lavender afghan, and working on the smaller lapghan.
While I was doing my research and shopping on the computer, my little guy was happily ensconced in front of his new door, keeping an eye on a couple of young squirrels who were feasting on the bird seed. It was warm out, so I had the bottom window up a bit so that Pogo could hear all the outdoor sounds better.
Last night, Pogo and I turned in rather early, around 10 p.m., and promptly fell asleep. This explains why we're up so early this morning. The first thing I did, was to make a snack for Pogo. He had slept right through his late night snack and was quite hungry.
Well, that's about all the news for this morning. Today, I want to get a few gifts wrapped and packed into boxes. Later, I need to clean out a tall plastic set of drawers to keep my yarn in. This will make it easier to see what I have on hand.
Now I'm going to mosey on out to the kitchen and make a nice hot cup of coffee. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
