Good morning. While we are enjoying a beautiful sunny day, some folks are having to cope with lots of snow. On the Weather Channel, they are talking about the first Winter storm, Ajax. It's dumping snow in some of the Western, South Western and Central states. Brrr, I'm not ready yet for the snow to begin here.
I dug into my 2012 photo files, and found this beautiful snow covered rose. I took the photo on December 1st, This gorgeous blossom is on my pink rose tree which was covered with blooms and snow. This year the branches are all bare.
I do have an update on Randi and Ali. Randi was able to leave the hospital and go home early last evening, but Ali will have to spend a few more weeks in the hospital. At least, that's the news that I got last evening. Jack and Lilah were sooo happy to have their mom home.
Another update here, the eye drops seem to be helping my eye, and my cold isn't so bad now either. I just have an occasional cough. This is good because I don't plan on missing Jazzy's performance in A Christmas Carol this coming Saturday.
Last evening, I put a few more rows on the baby blanket. For some reason, this does not seem to be working up as quickly as the afghans did. I missed my TV program "Major Crimes" because, once again, I fell asleep. Next week, I'll use my smarts and tape it.
While I was poking through my photo archives, I dug out this adorable photo of Pogo. This was the first day he met Sassy (Auntie Dee Dee's doggie). Auntie Dee Dee was talking, and as you can see, both Pogo and Sassy were listening intently.
I took this photo on August 7, 2012. My little Pogo had been here less than two weeks. Wow, can you see the difference in how he looked then and how he looks now? He's now two and a half pounds heavier, and he rules the whole household.
This next image is one that I borrowed from the internet. It says it all for those of us with fur babies.
Well, yesterday I did manage to use that wicked "P" word again, (procrastinate) but I did address another big batch of envelopes for my Christmas cards. Today, I'll take a photo of the Frosty Green afghan, and then I'll get that wrapped. After that, it should be a bit easier to get into a "wrapping" frame of mind. (I'm trying to use psychology on myself)
It's looking like there may only be two or three of us here on Thanksgiving Day, so I'm thinking that I might like to order us some take out Chinese food for dinner. I don't really feel like cooking up a big dinner, and I'm not especially fond of turkey. I do usually cook a turkey each year, but once it is cooled, I cut it up and package it all into portions big enough to make salads. I love turkey salad.
Well, time is fleeting and soon Pogo will be looking for some lunch. Me too, actually. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
