Good morning. First, let me say thank you for all your good wishes. They must be helping because I'm feeling lots better. Other than occasionally running a temperature, I think that whatever got me is on it's way out of my system.
Today our Jasmine turns sixteen years old. My goodness, where are the years flying to? It was only a few yesterdays ago that she was an adorable, energetic little girl eager to try all the fun things in life. Today she is a smart, beautiful and talented young lady. Happy Birthday Jazzy. I'm wishing you a beautiful day, and may all your dreams come true. I love you.
Our little pink rose is trying desperately to hang on to life now that the temperatures are dropping to wicked cold lows. I took this photo this past Saturday (Jan. 2). The poor little pink bud had froze, but was trying to thaw out. This photo was taken in front of a window, and the reflections are of trees and a neighbor's house a couple of lots over.
By Sunday, I was quite sick with whatever bug was going around. Sunday evening, Joe cooked a hamburger for Pogo's supper. I just couldn't stand up long enough to cook it myself. I spent the day and night wrapped up in a toasty warm cover up and my new fuzzy blanket and socks. You know Pogo was cuddled inside these fuzzies with me. (not in the socks!)
Yesterday morning, my SIL Eddie called to check up on me. He was also down with a bug, and Kevin had to go see his doctor yesterday because he was sick too. What a way to start the week. Plus, I looked out the door and what did I see? It was snowing! Just what we need. I took this photo of my car with my phone before everything was covered in white.
Last night, I started getting my appetite back. That's definitely a good sign. On the other hand, that's when the really cold temperatures set in here. It was only up to 9F degrees this morning when I got up to make breakfast for Pogo and me. We're supposed to get up to about 23F degrees later today.
Tomorrow though, the temps are supposed to get back up to the low 40's. Gosh, I hope so. When the temperature gets down to the mid to low 30's and under, it is too cold to keep the (inside) door open so that Pogo can see what's happening outside. Around 40F degrees, the cold air is not coming through the glass, and we can keep the inside door open
Folks, I have to share another really cool gift my friend the Queen Jester made for me. It's a bowl cozy, and I have to say that I use this every day. Now I don't have to worry about dropping a hot bowl any more.
You know, folks always said about my Dad, "Give him a piece of wood, and he'll make you something beautiful." For my friend the Queen, I say "Give her a scrap of material, and she'll make you something fabulous." Cheryl, I love my bowl cozy and my little runner too.
Now I'm starting to feel a bit chilly again, so I think I'll head for my lounge chair with a fuzzy blanket. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
