Good morning. Well, it's warm this morning, 54F degrees and working up towards 64F. However, it's also gray, wet and windy. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the mid 60's and then dropping down to the 30's at night. After that, the temps are all down hill for the rest of the week.
I'm watching the Red Carpet event at the American Music Awards (on TV, of course), and I must say that I am not very impressed with some of the messy hair do's and semi naked clothing. Don't get me wrong, I really do love fashion and pretty things. I'm just not very modern, I guess.
Right now, there is a young woman (I don't know her name) being interviewed, and she is wearing a wickedly horrible dress designed by Zac Posen. He is a judge on my favorite TV show, Project Runway, and I've always wondered at some of the comments he has made about some of the contestants' designs. Now I'm understanding a bit, and I'm not very crazy about his taste in design.
Earlier I watched an infomercial about Free TV For Life. Because of a law passed by Congress, all regular TV stations must be offered to the people for free. The program featured a square thing that acts as an antenna that you plug into your TV. It pulls in all the regular TV stations and costs $19.95 to purchase. (One unit per TV)
If it weren't for the fact that some of my favorite TV shows are not on regular stations, I might think about getting this. However, the programs that I watch the most are on cable stations. Oh well.
The Red Carpet Event is over and now the Kardashians are on TV. I don't watch this program, but the remote is on the other side of the room so I can't change it yet. Mama Kardashian has just wet her pants on live TV, and her daughter is telling her that she needs to start wearing diapers. Excuse me, but just when did this type of program fare become popular? Hold on while I get up and get the remote so that I can change the station.
**** I'm back. I have changed the station and am now looking at NCIS. Much better!! I'm glad that we have so many re-runs of all the good TV shows. If we didn't, I probably wouldn't watch very much TV at all.
This past weekend, daughter Audrey and her hubby Mac celebrated Thanksgiving with their daughter Andi and granddaughter Alena. Alena is two years old now, and already knows all her letters and numbers and how to spell her own name. Proud Grandpa took a "Retro 60'ish" photo of Alena and emailed it to me. Isn't she beautiful? I think she looks just like her mama.
Mac, this is a wonderful photo, and I love the retro effect. Alena is so adorable, and I can't wait to see more photos of her.
My weekend was rather quiet. I started a couple of new afghans; a Delft Blue one and a Frosty Green one. Once one of these is finished I want to start one using the hot pink yarn. I don't know who they will be for, but I'm sure I'll figure it out sometime during the year.
My little guy is patiently waiting for me to find something better to eat than the dog food that I served him earlier. Lately he's not into the dog food at all. Last night I broke down and finally cooked him up a steak. You know he wolfed that down as soon as the plate was set on his dinner mat. He even came back asking for seconds. And yes, I'm a softee and I got him some more. I just can't stand to see him go hungry!!
Well, that's my news for this morning. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
