Rain, Rain, It's Okay To Go Away

June 2, 2015

Good morning from soggy New England.  This rain is supposed to let up by early evening today.  I hope so, because now I'm ready for more sunshine.  It got so cool here last night that I had to put the heat back on in the house.  I do not want all the dwarfs getting sick because of this cold.

My eyes are bleary this morning, as I did not get any sleep during the night.   So, in a little while, I'm going to crawl back under my warm covers and try for a nap.  I need to be alert for my appointment this afternoon. 

Lately, I 've been attempting to work on a blue lapghan, but it just doesn't seem to want to be made just now.  Every two or three rows that I put on, I have to rip out the same amount of rows.  I finally put it down, and started another one using a Paddy Green yarn.  We'll see how this one goes.

Today I have a couple more images to share that I borrowed from the web.  This first one is so very true for a lot of us.  Well, at least for me.  I'm sorry it isn't very clear, but it is readable.

All these years, I've been setting the scale on the floor, and then standing on it.  Silly me!!!

This next image shows how to create a thrifty watering can by puncturing holes in the cap on an empty milk (or water) bottle.  I've tried this one, and it works pretty good.

This last image is a chicken run, and is usually attached to a small coop.   I never realized how small these things are.  They measure 28" high, 45" wide and 26" deep.  If you go online, you can see them pictured with a flock of chickens inside.  Check these measurements on your ruler.  I don't know about you, but this seems too small an area for even one chicken. 

After seeing this, it puts a bigger impact on the meaning of "free range" chickens.   How can anyone really justify cramming several chickens into such a tiny space and then feeling good about themself?  
Ah well, that's my tiny rant for today.  I saw on the news this morning the unveiling of a magazine cover featuring Caitlin Jenner.  I have one word for it.  WOW!!!   She looked absolutely gorgeous!
Now I'm going to see if I can get in a little nap before it's time to get ready for my appointment this afternoon.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Good morning Miss Edna and Pogo!
Sorry I've been remiss in visiting, but the horrible weather is to blame for a lot of it...we "officially" got 16.96 inches of rain in happy to send that rain on it's way...they were still assisting folks that had gotten stranded in flash floods yesterday...supposedly the run offs are to end tomorrow and the flash flooding will stop in our area...rained for 12 days straight, so nice to see the sunshine again even if it means we will hit 90 by the end of the week! Sorry you are still feeling under the weather a bit, hope each day finds you improving some. My fur babies and I wish you and Pogo a good week ahead. Hugs, Mat

Take care my friend! I am happy to see you here. Catching up, it is something I seem to do a lot of! We have been painting and working around the house so we are usually exhausted. Hope you are feeling better. The rain game is everywhere. Except California and Nevada and I pray they get some because otherwise they take all of our water here in Colorado.

The rain stopped for the roofers to finish our roof and now that is passed the city inspection I am a happy camper.

Have a good appointment and feel 100 percent soon.

I was pleased for Caitlyn (prev Bruce Jenner) and his transformation. He (or she) is beautiful and I hope he/she finally finds the peace he was looking for. I just don't know what to call him, I guess she and her would be appropriate. It has to take a lot of courage to go through what she did, especially in such a public venue.

It is taking a lot time to get rid of this virus. And it is no fun at all.
Good you have another appointment with your doctor. There has to be a solution to make you feel better and getting more energy and appetite back!!
And hoorray for Pogo, when he eats, you will to, if not as much as normal, but you must get thse vitamines and proteines into your body!
Could you send those lost pounds in an envelope to me??? I could do with extra weight, I need to build that up again.
Cross my fingers your doctor can give you something that will help you and if he runs out of ideas, well, let him send you to hospital to a specialist!!
Hang in there, lady, you will manage to overcome this, but it could have been a bit easier, hey???

Well, it worked ... I'm here. I did what you said and put your link in my file. Now if I can't find you on my dashboard, I can just go to my files. It worries me that you have been sick this long. What is your doctor saying ... pneumonia? But pneumonia is treatable so why aren't you better? Have you had your pneumonia shot? It is supposed to last at least 5 years. I know you must be sick of being sick. I think you may just be getting weak from being laid up for so long. Ask your doctor how you can get your strength back. Maybe he could give you some exercises to help. My cold is hanging on too. Some days are worse than others and my biggest fear is that my FH will catch it. He has serious lung problems and what we would consider a simple cold, could be very serious for him.

I take Izzi in tomorrow to get her stitches out ... then hopefully the Cone will come off. The hard part from then on is keeping her from hurting herself by thinking she can do everything as usual. She is supposed to be on limited exercise for eight weeks to allow the scar tissue to form a new ligament ... yes, I know, sounds crazy doesn't it?

I have to cut my grass again today. We have been having rain, like you, and the grass becomes an instant wheat field. My lawn mower can hardly cut through it and it clumps all over. I refuse to bag it because I have no place to put the clippings ... oh my, nothing is ever simple. My daughter has a therapy appointment this afternoon so I need to go get my business done. If I wait one day too long, I will have to use a sickle to cut my yard with. Hope your appointment goes well this afternoon and hugs to Pogo from Izzi.
