Good morning. Shall I tell you that we got another 2 or 3 inches of snow during the night? Nah, I don't want to spoil your morning. (But we did!) I was going to go out today to do some errands, but now I'll have to wait until Joe gets home later today so that he can clean off my car. It's against the law to drive around with snow on the roof of your car and I can't reach that high.
Someone asks why I need two suitcases. Well, when my hubby was alive, we would fill a box with the videos he had taped to watch while we were in Florida. Also, I would pack lots of my craft supplies, books on tape and a tape recorder. We would mail the box to ourselves at our Florida address, and then mail it back home before we left Florida.
Since I've been taking my doggies to Florida with me, the box is now filled with pee pads, a Potty Patch mat, a couple small tins of doggie food, a fuzzy blanket and my craft stuff. This year, because of the huge price increase for mailing boxes, I'm going to take a second (smaller) suitcase with me instead. The only change I may make will be if all of this stuff will fit in my regular suitcase. I don't think it will, but I will see.
I have an update on Kevin's health problems. I would explain what the doctor found, but it is a bit complicated and I would have to ask Dee Dee again before trying to explain it. Part of the problem may be acid reflux along with a wicked infection in his lungs.
The doctor did prescribe a couple of new meds for Kevin to take and will see him again in 2 or 3 weeks to check him again. I surely do hope that this new medicine will make Kevin better. Baseball season is going to start soon, he just got his driving license and is applying to college. His whole life is looking up except for his health problems.
Last night I got settled into my lounge chair and started working on the blue afghan. Would you believe that I ran out of yarn with only two rows to go till it is finished? So I got out another afghan
that I had started before (Frosty Green) and worked on that one for a while till my eyelids started closing.
Today I need to finish going through a last batch of 2014 receipts so that I can set all my tax stuff aside until I get back from Florida. I thought I had them all done but I found a few more. Maybe, once the taxes have been filed, I will start listing some of my 2015 tax stuff in a notebook and have a head start on next year's tax project. Sounds like a good plan!
I have a couple of photos to share with you. I took this first one of my handsome little fellow with my cell phone. One can't have too many photos of their fur babies.
This next photo is just plain beautiful. It does not matter how big it is, or where it hangs, or what the weather may be. The sight of our flag flying freely is a magnificent sight to these happy old eyes.
It's time now to catch up on my blog reading. I've already had two cups of coffee this morning. One at 5 a.m. and another at 9 a.m. I think instead of more coffee, I'll have a glass of orange juice. Actually, we haven't had our breakfast yet, so I think I'll get that ready before sitting down at my laptop. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
