Good afternoon. It was a tad bit cool during the night, and Pogo and I were in no hurry to crawl out from under the covers this morning. Needless to say, the extra sleep felt really good. It's time to turn on the heat, at least during the night. We still have some nice days coming, but the nights are getting quite cool.
Well, yesterday I did not get to bake the cookies. So, I think I'll try again this afternoon. I really did not do much of anything yesterday but I was really busy doing this nothing. It's just amazing how absolutely nothing can take up so much of one's time!
Today I have some fun photos that daughter Audrey took in the cotton field by her home. We think the farmers have switched to growing cotton instead of peanuts because we've been importing so many peanuts from Africa. Hmmm, I was not aware of this. Peanuts are a big part of Virginia's history.
Well anyway, here are some photos of the cotton blossoms. Thanks Audrey. We don't grow cotton up here in the North, so these are quite interesting.
Other than baking some cookies, today's excitement will be a trip to the supermarket for some groceries. Unfortunately, Pogo will have to miss this outing. The food store just won't let him in. I've tried telling them that he is a service dog, for my mental health, but they just won't give in.
I'm sorry I haven't had any new photos of Pogo and Sunshine lately, but Pogo is not in any hurry to become buddies with her yet. Sunshine has swatted Pogo a few times (gently) and now that she seems to want to play, he is having second thoughts about her. We'll just have to give them more time.
Well that's about all the news for today. If I don't get busy with the cookie dough pretty soon, we won't be having any cookies today either. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
