Good morning. It's getting close to noon, but I tried sleeping in this morning. Earlier I had to get up because Pogo was insisting on breakfast, which I got up and made for him. Then I crawled back under my cozy afghan and tried for a few more winks. However, there wasn't much sleep coming. Once his belly was full of food, Pogo now wanted to sit on my lap and play.
So we played a while and watched a bit of Square Pants Sponge Bob (I think that's how you spell it). Finally, Pogo managed to coax me out from under the covers. What would I do without this special little guy?
According to my phone, it is 44F degrees outside, sort of a mini heat wave. So far, it is not raining. However, we do have lots of rain on the way. At least that's what the weather man says. I guess the rain will arrive later this afternoon in time for the football game. I'm not a football fan, but I'll be routing for the Patriots because my family and friends will be watching the game and hoping for the Patriots to win.
Remember how I mentioned how nothing is too sacred to be advertised on TV? Well the other day I saw a commercial that I thought was totally disgusting. It was for Poise Pads, and the last line of the ad was "How would you recycle your period pads?"
Are they kidding? I'm all for recycling as much as possible, but give me a break! Poise Pads? I assume they are not referring to brand new ones. I mean, why would you bother to buy them if you were only going to put them in the recycle bin or create something new out of them? YUCK!
On that note, how about a few birdie photos. These were taken through the kitchen window. The window could use a washing, but not in this cold weather.
Yesterday, I gave Joe two bowls of peanuts to spread around outside for the birds and the squirrels. I tried to get a photo of the squirrels eating the peanuts, but they would rush in, grab a peanut and run off with it. Oh well, at least they were enjoying them.
I have no special plans for today. Somehow, when I plan exactly what I will do for a day, I usually get sidetracked. So today my plan is "whatever will be, will be". Right now, I'm thinking about what to make for lunch. A grilled cheese sandwich sounds yummy, but then I still have to come up with something tasty for Pogo. Hmmm, I'll have to think on that for a while.
On that note, I think I'll have me a cup of coffee, and see what's in the refrigerator. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
