Good morning. My goodness, I almost slept the morning away. During the night, sleep was patchy. Finally around 4:15 a.m., I fell into a better sleep. Pogo seemed to be having the same kind of night too.
Today is cloudy with bits of sunshine, and a bit warmer. The weather man says we will get up into the low 60's today and tomorrow. This will feel wonderful. These old bones are much happier when it's not cold.
Yesterday, my order of kilt pins arrived, and now I have four neck warmers all done up and looking pretty. The fifth one is almost finished, so I'll take photos when this one is done. They work up quickly, and you can make two with one 7 oz. skein of yarn.
I dug into my photo archives for a couple photos of my pink roses (from the rose tree). This year, there are no blooms left on this rose tree. Three years ago, it was covered with gorgeous blossoms on this date. Here are two photos that I took on October 20, 2012.
Today, I need to make some serious progress on choosing the photos for next year's calendar. I have a tendency to put some things off, thinking that there is plenty of time. However, time seems to catch up with me, and now I have only a month left to get my calendar done.
Two men from the company that is making my new exterior door just came by to make one last measurement so that the new door will be guaranteed to fit right when it arrives from the factory. These guys don't seem too happy that I want my storm door put back on when they are finished installing the new door.
They did not make the storm door, so they don't want to guarantee that they will put it back on right. Hmmm, you can be sure I will be keeping a close eye on them when the time comes. You do not remove something that you cannot put back. They are supposed to be expert at what they do, so I expect the storm door to be put back on properly.
My daughter Deanne just called me to say that Kevin has the results from his allergy tests, and he is allergic to just about everything; everything outdoors, and cats and dust mites indoors. Oh dear, this is not so good. Kevin is very athletic, and is outdoors when he is not sleeping or in school.
The treatments for this aren't looking so good either - special meds three times a day for the next few years (best, but not covered by insurance) or a shot every week for the next few years (this is covered by insurance). Thank goodness, the doctor did not mention having Kevin live in a bubble.
Well, tine is fleeing and it's getting close to lunch time. Pogo has not been eating so good lately, and I need to make something tasty to tempt him. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
