Good morning. My goodness, it is really cool this morning. It's 7:15 a.m., and the temperature is 56F degrees and cloudy. I don't think it's supposed to get out of the 60's all day today. Of course, that's according to the weather report on my phone. On TV, the Weather Channel, says it is 47F degrees right now, and that it will get up to 70F later today. Hmmm, such a big difference.
This morning, Pogo and I will take a ride to the Post Office to mail a couple of boxes. I would have done this yesterday, but I had to go to the supermarket too, and they won't Pogo come in to the store. So I decided we'd do the Post Office today so that Pogo could get out for a ride. The Post Office that I go to loves to see Pogo.
Yesterday morning, the fellow from Window World checked out the exterior door that I'm wanting to replace. He did not think we could find the exact door to replace it, but we got a nice surprise when we looked through his catalogue. They did have this door, so I had him give me estimates for this door and one that only has glass on the upper half of the door. (My door is mostly all glass.)
Oh my gosh, it's a good thing I was sitting down when he gave me the $ figures. Before I could place the order and pay the deposit, I first had to check which bills were coming due. (taxes and such)
It takes ten weeks to get the door once it has been ordered, so I will call him back later today to see when he can come back to take measurements and put in an order for my door.
There will be another huge gorgeous moon this weekend, so I borrowed this image from the web to share with you. If you want to take photos, it's all happening this Sunday night, September 27. I hope you all get some great photos.
Does anyone remember the old Polaroid cameras, and the set of fancy filters that you could buy for them? I was one of those folks who just had to have these filters, and I had a wonderful time with them. This "oldie" photo (early 80's, I think) was taken with one of those filters. The pretty young ladies are my daughters Deanne and Kerri. They were both at our store helping with the classes. In the background, you can see some of the shelves filled with greenware. (It was a ceramics store.)
For those of you who enjoy taking photos with your smart phone, there are some super new lenses out that you might want to have a look at. They are called "Moment Lenses" and they fit both Apple and Android phones. The web site is: http://momentlens.co/. I'll be interested in your thoughts about these new lenses.
A couple days ago, after I set a pile of newly washed towels and fuzzy blankets on the end of the sofa, my little guy just could not resist scrunching everything into a nice comfy pile to lay on.
As I sit here typing, he has just finished scrunching his blankets into a nice big pile, and has crawled inside them. He's all curled up into a tiny ball with his face pushed into the fuzzy blanket. This is how he likes to sleep. If you can't find him here, just follow the yellow arrow. That's the top of his head sticking out.
This afternoon, I think I'll work some more on the Frosty Green afghan. I only have thirty more rows to go and it will be finished. These cooler temperatures make it more comfortable to sit and crochet.
Well that's about all my news for this morning. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
