Good morning from my drizzly part of the country. Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. The drizzly stuff feels ever so good, and the cool temps that come with it are just fabulous!! If we can believe the weather forecast, we are in for a whole week of these wonderful temps. 70-83 F degrees. Gosh, it's going to be rough dealing with this, but we'll definitely do our best. hahahaha.
Well, all our Patriots fans are surely smiling and happy this morning after last night's win. I did not watch the game, but most of my friends and family were watching and cheering. Here's a cute little Minion that I borrowed from the web to share.
Yesterday, we were expecting patches of heavy rain, so Joe and I decided that we'd do our grocery shopping today. I've finished making my new shopping list, and am looking forward to trying some new recipes.
Well folks, it had to happen. Sooner or later, someone would come up with an RV special made for our fur babies. I think these are just awesome! I haven't shown this picture to Pogo because he'll be wanting one for himself. How about your fur babies? Wouldn't they just love to have one too?
I called the window company yesterday and made an appointment for them to come out and measure one of the entrance doors on my house, and show me what doors they have as replacements. I'm not sure how old our door is, but it's been on the house as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, time has taken its toll, and now the door needs replacing.
Next week is tax time again. Actually, it seems like almost every month (or every other month) is tax time when you own a house. The property taxes are now payable four times a year, and then there's the utility taxes. So far, they are still due twice a year. The good part is that so far, I've been able to keep up with them. That's a plus.
I finally finished the yellow shawl that I was making. Now it's on to the Claret afghan. (the one I keep calling Merlot!) Once this is finished, I can start something new. Maybe a wrap? We'll see. I did find another rather pretty crocheted blanket pattern. Maybe I'll start one of these? This one is called "Unbelievably Easy Crochet Blanket." If anyone wants any of these patterns that I post, just send me an email.
Daughter Deanne called me last night to say that Jazzy auditioned for a part in "The Christmas Carol" and got the part of "The Ghost Of Christmas Present." This part is strong in singing and dancing, so I can't wait to see it. Good luck Jazzy. I know you'll be a super Christmas Ghost.
Grandson Kevin is also doing great. He started his first week at college, and is trying out for the baseball team this weekend. He is studying Criminal Justice, and I almost wish I were going with him. This is such an interesting field. Good luck this weekend, Kevin.
Well, that's all my news for now. So, till Sunday, Y'all be cool, and have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
