Greetings From Soggy New England

October 29, 2015

Good morning from very soggy New England.  It's 3:30 a.m., and I've been up for a couple of hours now.  That's the price I pay for falling asleep very early last evening.  Yesterday was a light drizzly rain all day and early evening.  Then it picked up a bit, and has been raining all through the night.  It is still raining, and will probably continue on through the whole day. 

So far, there has been a lot of interesting stuff to watch on television.  There's a program coming on at 7 a.m. on the Lifetime channel that I'm looking forward to watching.  It's called Designing Spaces, and features products from the Lakeside Collection catalogue. 

Last evening, I had planned on making stuffed green peppers for supper, but DIL Janet was not coming by so I diced the peppers and put them in the freezer.  Instead, I cooked some steak for Pogo , and Joe sent me out a delicious pork chop dinner that he had just cooked.  Yum!!  (Pogo does not like meats that are breaded or coated with anything.)

While I was going through my photos, I came across a very interesting photo from long ago that I thought I would share.  Back in the eighties, digital photography was coming into reality.  A friend of ours took this photo of me and my little dog Gizmo, and turned it into a digital photo.  It's the first digital photo that I had ever seen. 

As you can see, the photo was rather dark and not very sharp, but it was the beginning of a new technology that grabbed a hold of my curiosity, and turned me to digital photography.  Casio was going to be releasing a retail digital camera soon, and it was already at the top of my "wish list."

I also want to share a wonderful Halloween card that my friend Beth made for me.  It features the first Halloween QP that I posted a few weeks ago and my little guy, Pogo.  Beth, this is great.  Thank you so much. 

Today I want to package up a couple of items to mail out probably tomorrow.  If I go out today, I might catch a cold from the wet stuff, and that will interfere with my Halloween ride.  Oh yes, Pogo and I are planning on making our annual Halloween broom ride. 

We usually meet up with a large group of friends, and we ride in groups.  A lot of us gals are getting along in age, so this way no one gets lost.  We keep an eye out for each other.  You know, this ride is not like going a few miles to another area.  We cover as much of the globe as the weather will allow. 

Have any of you tried broom riding?  Put it on your bucket list folks.  It's really exciting.  As long as you are dressed warm under your cape, it's a fantastic experience.   Now, now.  Don't be shaking your head and saying "This one is not cooking on all of her burners!"   Just watch the skies on Halloween night.  You'll surely see quite a few of us flying by way up on high.  If you do, just give us a wave.

Okay, enough of my babble.  How about another freebie QP?  This is another one that features my little friend Lola.  Did you know that she has a twin?  Oh yes, and they are both loving this Halloween season.   Gosh, even the little bat is happy!

Here is your download link:

Today I'll have to work a bit more in the bedroom.  There is still a lot more stuff to be put away and straightened out.  Then I can set up my gift wrapping table.  It's almost November, which means that all my mailer boxes need to filled and taped by the end of the month.  Well, at least that's my goal. 

My cards and calendars should be here in a few days, so I'll be able to start addressing all the envelopes soon.  That takes me a while so I like to start it early and take my time. 

On QVC right now, they are showing lounge pajamas that you can wear out or just hang around in all day.  Unfortunately, they have long sleeves (I like 3/4 and short sleeves), and are a bit on the pricey side.  One top and bottom set is on sale for $68.00.  For this price, I'll stick to my old comfy jammies.   The host says that these are perfect all day clothes for you aging mother.  Hmpff!!!!  Does she think that us oldies don't know how to wear regular clothes?    As the commercial says "Ma'am, you don't know AARP!"

Well, that's about all my news for this morning.  I think I'll go tackle the bedroom before I start running out of steam.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

It's been very windy since yesterday with gray skies and everything from a little spritz to heaven rain. Right now it's chilly, windy and gray. A good to be inside. LOL

I got my first little digital point and shoot in the early 00s and your early digital photo from the 80s is MUCH clearer and sharper than the ones I got!

I always wave, even if it's cloudy and I don't see you, in case there's a break in the clouds and you see me. :) Never tried broom-riding, which doesn't require coordinated feet like a car. But I'm still not having much luck copying Harry Potter with "accio coffee!!" I still have to get my coffee the ld fashioned way. :)

Lola and her twin like bats; how could I not like her too? hehe...thank you for the QP!

I'd better go put on my afternoon clothes before someone tries to sell me a $68 all-day PJ set, huh?

Have a great day, my friend!

Hugs, Nani

Hmmm, you have a lng day if you wake up that early. That's why I try to go to bed not too early,
I saw some of those lounge pyama's here too. They look quite comfy to me, could be nice to wear in winter in the evening, when all work is done and you sit in your chair or on the couch. And you could always shorten the legs if you want to.
But the price isn;t nice on them LOL!
Jan and I often put on our old jogging "trousers"and a an old sweatshirt in the evening.
Oh yes, we will keep an eye out on the sky on Halloween night! I don;t know if we will try a broom ride too, may be that is something for next year LOL!!!
Good you fly in groups, by the way.
I'd better go posting n my blog now, as I am a bit late this morning.
Have a wonderful day.
