Good morning. Today is looking just like yesterday. Cool, gray and wet. On a positive note, we really do need the rain. Have you noticed that it is already October? Gosh, the year is going by so quickly.
It's time to start thinking about Halloween costumes, and for some us it's time to plan our big night ride. Gosh, I hope it doesn't rain that night. I'm getting too old to be out riding around in the wet, cold weather. It's not good for the bones.
Speaking of evening rides, here's a photo of an adorable lady who keeps watch over my front door. Daughter Deanne found her for me. I think she looks a lot like me in my younger days. Isn't she just precious?
Yesterday was a rather uneventful day. Pogo and I went out to do a couple of errands, and then I spent the afternoon making phone calls about various things. In the evening, I didn't feel like crocheting, so it was quite late before I picked it up and put on a few more rows. Sad to say, I did not finish the afghan before September was done. Hmmm, maybe tonight.
Before I forget, here's the October page from my calendar. I miss watching the morning mists and the wildlife in this field.
I guess missing things as they were is part of making life changes. Even though I miss a lot of what was when I was working, I do enjoy being home all the time. It just takes time to get used to the daily differences. Thank goodness I have Pogo to keep me busy and focused on my days.
DIL Janet will be stopping by this afternoon after work, so I really should start thinking about what's for our supper. It will be interesting to see how she is getting along with her new smart phone. Up to now I was thinking that it was just me who wasn't as smart as the phone, but now I find that lots of us grownups are in the same boat.
There is a cell phone out there just for us "seniors". It has huge numbers on it and only makes and takes phone calls. This is really cool for some folks, but it certainly takes all the fun out of using the phone for the rest of us. This is where all the "Dummy" and "Visually Learn" books come in handy. They are a godsend for folks like me.
I'm running out of morning and the mailman is here with a handful of envelopes. It's time for me to get busy here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a most wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
