God morning from sleepless in Massachusetts. Late in the evening, I had dozed off watching TV, and all of a sudden the TV started acting crazy and woke me up. There were words on the screen saying "we cannot process your request, please call the office". What request? Next, the screen went black and the cable box started showing spinning numbers and letters instead of channels. This is where I tried to shut off the TV. It only took about ten minutes to accomplish this simple task.
I went to get up to call the cable company and that's when I got the wicked bad spasm in my leg. Now I'm not just mad, I hurt and I can't get up to get my meds because it hurts too much. Well, after a while I managed to get to my meds and down a pill. Then I just had to wait it out for about another twenty minutes for the spasm to settle down.
Do you think maybe I'm wide awake by now? It took forever to get through to the cable company only to find that there had been an outage of sorts and they were working to restore the cable. Well at least I know there's nothing wrong with my TV. I guess now it's time for a nice hot cup of cocoa or coffee and maybe some popcorn chicken to soothe my ruffled feathers.
I'll wait till around 9 a.m. to call the doctor's office and try to reschedule today's appointment. By the time 11 a.m. rolls around, I won't be fit for driving anywhere. It's just a follow up so I don't think the doctor will mind.
Today I have a couple of black and white photos that one of the parents at the play took this weekend. They are just beautiful. The first photo depicts every one's concern at the tornado that is headed their way. In the second photo, Dorothy is enjoying the Lion's tale of woe. Folks, the fellow who played the Lion was absolutely magnificent!
Another parent took this next photo of Jazzy as she started singing Over The Rainbow, and it is my favorite.
Okay, okay. Enough of my "granny bragging" for now. I just had to share these beautiful photos. I also made a scrap layout that I will share. Some time ago, I was given a photo of one of my great granddaughters, and I saw quite a resemblance in it to a photo I have of me when I was just two years old.
Yesterday I dug out both photos and made a scrap layout with them. I used a background and some elements from several of Kyra's kits: "Something Magical", "Wonderful Day" and "Innocent Thoughts".
Well, I've polished off all the popcorn chicken that I made up a little while ago. Oh Yum Yum!! And I've drunk about half of my cup of coffee (which is now cold). I think maybe I'll curl up in my lounge chair and see if maybe I can catch a few winks.
Before I do, let me leave you with a few bits of useless information that you might need to know, but probably don't.
Did you know that a dragonfly has a lifespan of just twenty-four hours? And did you know that raindrops are not teardrop-shaped? They are rounded at the top and flat at the bottom. Wow, who knew?
The mayor of Washington once remarked: "If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very low crime rate."
Charles de Gaulle once made the statement: "China is a big country, inhabited by many Chinese."
Trying to burn calories? Banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories an hour. I think I like chubby better. And lastly, did you know that a pig always sleeps on its right side? Simply fascinating!!
So, till April, Y'all take care and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
