Good morning. I'm not so crazy today. The sun is shining and there is nothing falling from the sky. No white stuff, no wet stuff, just bright sunshine. It's only for today, but I'll take it. Did I mention it is cold? Today is supposed to get up to 12F degrees, and tonight will go down to four below zero.
Did you like my title today? I thought I was bad about collecting things, but my Pogo is just like me in a way. He collects fuzzies. Blankets, bathrobes, and anything that is fuzzy and big enough for him to crawl under.
This is a photo of him sleeping on his little sofa last night. As you can see, he has a pink and gray fuzzy blanket, a black printed blanket, and my fuzzy blue bathrobe. Under all of this is a green and white Pooh Bear fuzzy blanket. He has another collection of these fuzzies on my sofa and in his bed.
Early yesterday afternoon, a nice gentleman stopped by to have a look at my roofs and talk with me. The first thing he said was "Gosh, you sure have a mess on your hands!" He meant all the snow and icicles on the roofs. He told me that they are overwhelmed with snow removal jobs, but that he would fit me in somehow. He would try to come by later today and tomorrow to see how much snow they could get off the roofs.
We also discussed having him come by later after all the snows have gone by to give me some prices for installing the heater cords that go around the whole perimeter of your roof. This way we won't have the problem with all the huge icicles and built up water and ice beneath the snow on the roof. It's another unexpected big expense, but it could save me a lot of money in repairs. We'll see.
I have a couple of photos to share that I took from our kitchen window. As you can see, the snow is beginning to take away most of my view. The snow is getting higher and higher with every storm. I had to zoom in to get the photo of the little bird on the treat holder. He and his friends finished this one off, and I made up more peanut butter treats that Joe put out when he got home.
Yesterday, I also did a bit more work on my taxes. There's still a ways to go, but if I do a batch each day, I hope to be ready for my appointment with the accountant next week. Last night, I actually got back to my crocheting too. I am way behind on all the projects that I wanted to make this year.
Later today, Joe and I will do some food shopping. On the way, I have to stop by the bank, the hardware store and the Post Office. It's going to feel good to get out of the house for a bit.
Well that's my news for today. So till Sunday, Y'all stay warm and have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
P.S. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY everybody.
