Good morning. Well, this was another 5 a.m. breakfast morning for my little guy. However, I must say that it is good to get up early some days. I can take my time reading my emails while I watch the news on TV and enjoy a cup of coffee.
I have to say that the news gets a bit annoying after a while. It seems that every thirty minutes, the same stories get repeated. So, I often switch the news off, and put the shopping channel on. Today, though, starting at 9 a.m., the Blue Blood marathon will be on all day. It's all repeats, but very enjoyable. So that's what I'll be watching.
I was clearing out a junk drawer the other day, and I came across another blast from the past. Do any of you remember these? Hmmm, maybe there was a Rambo movie out back then?
I also have another photo memory from the past to share. Because I have my blog printed as books, I thought it would be good to have some of these photos sprinkled throughout the books. This photo was taken back in the mid 70's. Daughter Audrey spent a whole summer in Sweden and Norway. While in Norway, her friend's sister, who worked in a recording studio, took the girls on a tour of the studio while a popular singing group was making a recording. The happy girl with the big smile (3rd from right) is Audrey, sitting with the group that was making the recording.
I find that a lot of the old photos are fading and scratched. By putting some of them in my blog books, I can save them for future generations. The old Polaroid photos are in the worst condition. Unfortunately, way back when we took these photos, we did not realize how much they would deteriorate over time.
While Audrey was picking up a few groceries at her local supermarket last week, she came across this item and scooped it up right away. There were just two of them left and she took them both. Deanne and I are big time Red Sox fans, so Audrey packaged them up and mailed them to me.
Yup!! Boston Red Sox peanuts grown at Hampton Farms in Virginia. Suffolk, VA. is the peanut capitol. You just don't usually find Red Sox labels that far south. Deanne and I are going to enjoy these, Audrey. Thank you from both of us.
In a couple hours, a person from the window company (Window World) will be here to look at one of my exterior doors and give me an estimate to replace it. I'll be interested in seeing the different types of doors that he has to offer. I'd like to stay as close in design to the door that is being replaced.
Pretty soon, I have to replace the vanity in the upstairs bathroom. This was one of the projects that was started earlier this year, but never finished. So, I guess that's our next project. I'd like to have it finished before the end of October.
Some time over the winter, I may even re-do the floor tiles in my bathroom. I've already bought a couple of new scatter rugs for my bathroom. Pogo likes to go in there and have a nap on the scatter rug by the tub.
It looks like it will be a busy winter here. Once I get past the gift wrapping, package mailing, and one or two household projects, it will be time to start working on the taxes again. Yeesh!!! That's the one thing I just don't look forward to.
Today is cloudy and cool so far. The temperature will probably only get up to about 71F degrees today, but the sun is supposed to be out for most of the day. This afternoon should be a really nice Fall day.
Well that's my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
