Good morning. The sun is shining, and we're back to the warm sticky temps for at least another week. At the moment though, it is still quite nice outside. (only 8:15 a.m.)
Yesterday, Pogo saw his doctor to make sure it was just a cold that he has and not the flu. His doctor said that Pogo's heart and lungs sounded really good, and put him on an antibiotic for ten days to help get rid of the inflammation from his cold. In a few months, Pogo will go back and get a flu shot.
We learned that there is a new strain of canine flu going around. So, if any of you have doggies, please do have them vaccinated for the flu. We all know how horrible we feel when we are sick with the flu, so why not do what we can to help prevent our fur babies from having to go through this too?
I read an article in yesterday's newspaper about how to make trading on Craig's list a lot safer. Try meeting at your local police station to complete your trades. The police in a lot of cities and towns are setting aside a safe area in, or just outside, the police station. There have been quite a few murders this year as deals on Craig's list were being carried out. So, if you use this online trading place, do encourage your police department to offer a safe trading zone.
Today, my grandson Kevin is coming over to help me in my kitchen. I have to empty out a storage cabinet where all my pots and pans are kept. This will be a good time to sort through them and get rid of all the ones that I do not use anymore. That means most of them. SIL Eddie will be putting in a new cabinet and countertop this weekend. Then I will be switching over to induction cooking. I already have the burners set aside. However, I think I'll pick up a small regular hot plate to use until I master how to cook on these new burners.
Last evening, I ordered a new set of cookware from Amazon to use with my new burners. Such a flimsy excuse to buy new pans, I know. But most of my pans are aluminum, and cannot be used for induction cooking.
Today I have more photos of the lilies in our garden. Yesterday, I noticed that there were more large buds getting ready to open, so I'll take my camera outside later and get more photos.
Now I should get dressed and start working in the kitchen before Kevin gets here. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
