Good morning. It's cold here, but the sun is shining. My old bones are feeling the cold now. It's time to start my countdown till Spring. Folks, there's just 76 days till Spring!!
I've been watching some of the previews of the new line-up of TV shows, and I'm not very impressed. It seems we (the audience) can only appreciate the value of downright stupidity, explicit sex and nudity or outright guts, gory and violence. Even the game show channel has a new show that is designed to scare the heebie jeebies (or whatever) out of us.
Pretty soon, it will be super easy to make the decision to get rid of cable. We pay a lot of money for our cable, yet the quality of programs seems to be constantly declining. Even the language is becoming quite distasteful. There is a lot of swearing and foul talk now allowed on the big screens in our living rooms.
So now I play my music a lot more often. Mind you, it's not the new stuff you hear on the air waves. Nope, I play the old stuff. You don't need sheet music to understand what the words to the music are, and it's not advocating disrespect and violence. Don't get me wrong, some of the new music is nice. But I'll stick to the old stuff for now.
Okay, time to get off my bandbox. Yesterday was a day for doing lots of laundry. Scatter rugs and clothes. Today I should probably wash a few of our blankets. Then I think I'd best sit down and write out a few bills and birthday cards that need to go out in the morning mail. I should probably start working on my tax stuff, but I think I'll let that wait until tomorrow.
For Christmas, I received a set of Jelly camera lenses that I've been playing around with. They are really quite fun to use. Thank you Nani. I'll have to practice a bit using them, but here are a couple of my first photos taken with them.
So far, I've only used these lenses indoors at night. I need to practice more with them during daylight. And, I think I'll take them to Florida with me so that Audrey and I can play together. We take a lot of photos while we are there, and these lenses will add to the fun.
I got a late start here this morning because I was busy checking out the scrap kits sales by a couple of my favorite designers, Tiny Turtle Designs and Bella Caribena. You can find them both at Wilma4Ever.
Now I think I'll get started on those blankets. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
