Good morning. I wish I could say I was all better but that's not the case. However, I did wake up hungry for spaghetti this morning. So maybe that's a good sign. I headed for the kitchen to make up a pan of pasta, but just could not deal with having to wash up a batch of dishes and pots. So instead, I made up some Ramen noodles. It's not the same, but" noodles is noodles"!
I'm not the only one with strange tastes this morning. Pogo even ate a bit of doggie food for his breakfast. Heavens forbid!! I noticed that he was coughing a bit during the night, so I hope he is not catching anything from me. His appetite has been off a bit lately, so maybe he has caught a bit of my cold (or bug or whatever it is that I have).
I'm not sure what it is that I've caught. I had thought that it was a Spring cold, but it hasn't been acting like a cold. After several days of just plain yuckiness, some of the congestion is beginning to break up a bit, but now the aches and pains are setting in.
Yesterday, I felt as though I may have actually lost a few pounds because of all the exercise I was getting running back and forth to the bathroom. However, I'm sure if I stepped on a scale, it would not support any loss of poundage. Drats!
Yesterday's mail brought a couple of surprises. One not so good, and one maybe good for a little fun every now and then. The not so good item was the Comcast cable bill. I opened it and found a $40 increase. Wow!!
Needless to say, I promptly called the cable company and rasped and coughed my way through a very unpleasant but necessary request. "Lower my bill or I shall see what Verizon will offer me." This call resulted in a one year deduction, bringing my bill back to where it was before, a six month subscription to HBO for free and a "hope you're feeling better soon, Ma'am."
The next surprise was a box containing a new toy for Pogo. I had ordered him a "Wobble Wag Giggle Dog Toy" (as seen on TV). I had also ordered one to send home to Sassy (Dee's little doggie). Well, at first Pogo seemed interested in the new ball because it moved and made noises. But when it stopped rolling, he would lose interest in it. Hmmm.
Next I sat Pogo on my lap and had the ball by my side. Every now and then I would give the ball a quick little nudge and it would make some noises. However, this did not make Pogo very playful. Instead he tried to kill the ball. Man oh man, if you could have seen him attack that ball!!!!! If Pogo had teeth, the ball would be totally destroyed!!
So for now, the ball sits ever so lonely on the living room floor. According to Deanne, Sassy was thinking she might enjoy her new toy until it started making noises and rolling towards her. Sassy ran for her life, and now that ball sits on their kitchen floor in hopes that maybe one of the cats will play with it. Hmmm, where did I go wrong?
My crochet projects are not progressing very well. Most of the time I'm just not in the mood to concentrate on crocheting and counting (rows). I do a row, then put it down. I've been wanting to bake some cookies, but I haven't been in the mood for that either. So, last night, I gave the cookie dough to Joe and he baked up a batch of cookies. They must have been good because most all of the cookies got eaten before everyone went to bed.
We had a new dwarf move into the house yesterday afternoon, and so far it looks like he might just fit in nicely. Ours is a very different kind of rooming house. You have your room, which is private, but then the rest of the house is "common area" which is shared by everyone. All the dwarfs pitch in to keep the common areas clean, and everyone gets along like an extended family. We watch out for each other, and it actually works out quite well.
That's about all the news for now, and the lounge chair is calling out to me. Before I go, I want to share a rather cute tee shirt that I found in one of my catalogues. This one is for my friend, the Queen Jester.
I've taken something for my achy body and now my eyes are getting droopy. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
