Good morning. It's 28F degrees outside my door, and will get up to about 42F degrees later today. I'll be happy if that's as cold as it gets all winter. Alas, I don't think the weather gods care one tiny bit about what I think.
At least the sun is shining, giving the impression that is a bit warmer. I went outside a little while ago to fill the bird feeder and put more peanut butter bread in the treat cage. I barely got back inside when all the birds came rushing out to fill their tummies.
One of the things that I do for the little birds and the chipmunks, is to toss a whole bowl of bits of bread and peanuts on the ground under my car. This is good for when it is raining, or when there are predators around. Usually, it doesn't take very long before all the food is gobbled up.
I heard on the news this morning that Google is giving free downloads of Michael Jackson's Thriller album. I thought I would check it out, but got side tracked to my own kind of music. After a quick peek around, I downloaded one song "Blue Christmas" by Elvis Presley and Martina McBride. I'll go back later and peek around some more. Just go to Google, type in free ________ music MP3 downloads.
A few years ago, I had a super music juke box at the bottom of my blog, but for some reason, Google took it away. I really enjoyed that, and so did a lot of blog readers. Maybe someday they'll bring it back? That would be super.
A few days ago, I took a photo of my Christmas cactus. It is just loaded with buds, and now the blossoms are popping out. This thing is just gorgeous.
This morning, there are at least eight more blossoms opened up on my plant. I'll have to take some new photos. I'm going to have to get a bigger pot and a ceiling hanger for this plant and possible a couple others.
Last night, I worked on the baby blanket while I watched TV (Major Crimes). Aha! This time I managed to stay awake through the whole program. As for the blanket, I think there are about four or five more rows to go till it is finished.
I did try the pattern for the Royal Queen's Neck warmer, but I was not a bit happy with it. I bought bulky yarn that it called for, but it was just too much bulk to go around one's neck. I'll try some different yarns with it later.
Of the three dwarfs who are planning on being home for Thanksgiving, two of them have decided that Joe will cook a turkey dinner. The third dwarf says he would rather have soup. Hmmm, we'll see. I will probably have my Chinese take out tomorrow night instead, and eat some turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
I found this delightful image on the web and just had to share it with you. We can all use a giggle to start our day.
Today I will attempt to wrap a couple more things. Yesterday I got to wrap and pack up one box, but there are a few little things that I need before I can finish up the rest of the boxes. I got busy on-line and ordered a few things, and hopefully they will all arrive here in the next few days so that I can finish up all my boxes at least.
The update on Ali, as of yesterday, was that she is still not ready to come home, but has gained weight. She's now reached five pounds. We are all still hoping that she will be home for Thanksgiving.
Well that's all my news for this morning. Now I'm off to see what fun today holds for me and Pogo. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
