Good morning. Oh my, it is such a super morning. It's gray and cool, in the upper 60's with a teensy breeze. Mmmmm, feels so good. I'm sure it will be up in the 80's in a few hours though, so I'm enjoying this.
Pogo and I got up at 5:30 this morning. Around 6:15, he heard someone moving about in the main house, so he sat in the pantry watching and listening for Joe to come downstairs to make his coffee. Once he heard Joe, Pogo started barking until Joe fed him his turkey treat. It's a wonderful little ritual that Pogo and Joe have.
I mention the pantry a lot so let me explain. My pantry is between my apartment and the main house. It has a wooden exterior door and a screen door. I only close the wooden door when I leave the house. The screen door is usually the only door we use. It keeps Pogo in our apartment, and the kitties in the main house. It also lets Pogo see and hear what is going on in the main house.
On weekday afternoons, this is where you can find Pogo from around 2 p.m. till Joe gets home from work. As soon as he sees Joe, he barks until Joe points to the door (meaning that he is going in the house), and then Pogo runs pell mell to the pantry, barking for Joe to open the screen door and give him his turkey treats.
Yesterday afternoon and evening I spent quite a few hours backing up all the files on my laptop. I have too much stuff on the laptop; so now that it is all backed up on to an exterior drive, I can remove a lot of it from my laptop. I'll work on some of that later today.
Last evening, I finally got to use the oven that Deanne and Eddie gave me for Christmas. I did not have an outlet to plug it into, but now I do. My first meal cooked in the oven was a lasagna. Mmmm, was it delicious!! Today I think I'll bake some cookies. The dwarfs will be happy because they get to eat most of them.
I finally treated myself to the new lens that I've been wanting for my camera. I've been debating with myself whether or not I should get it since the lens first came out on the market. Now my problem is that I need to buy me a crane to hold it up while I'm shooting photos. Ah well, it's a problem I'll enjoy working on.
The new lens is a Tamron SP 150-600mm. Now I can't wait to go to the park and see what kind of bird photos I can get with this new toy. Here's a photo of my camera before the new lens.
And here's a photo of my camera with the new lens on. Can you see why I'll be needing that crane? This new baby is not a lightweight! I'm looking forward to having some fun with this lens.
Well, I've gnawed on your ear long enough. Now it's time to wash the breakfast dishes and get a few things done here so that I can play. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
