Good morning. It's another cold morning, but the sun is shining so all is well. I've shut off the news and put on "Let's Make A Deal" (on TV). I need a dose of happy news. A young man dressed in a cow costume just won himself a brand new motor scooter. Now that's happy news!
Well, let me share with you a fantabulous shopping spree that Pogo and I had yesterday. While we were out, we stopped in at JoAnn's Fabric store to look at the yarn. Would you believe? They were having a sale on all the yarn.
Of course, while I'm pushing Pogo's stroller, I can't also push a cart. So, all the skeins of yarn that I was picking out had to go in the stroller with Pogo. Pretty soon, he was getting rather squished into one little spot. The last few skeins were precariously perched on the top of the hood on the stroller. Finally, there was no more room for yarn, so I had to make my way to the register.
That's when the real fun started. First the cashier had to give a few sweet words and pats to Pogo. They like him JoAnn's. Then she rang up my purchases. They totaled $73.18. After the sales price, that was brought down to $54.78. But -- I had a $50 gift certificate in my purse. (Thanks to my wonderful DIL Janet.) This brought the total of my purchase down to $4.78. Now that's a great shopping spree!!!
In my three large bags of yarn you will find such yummy colors as Medium Rose, Artist Print, Café Latte, Buff Fleck, Sky Blue and Scarlet. The first two I'll be working with are the Medium Rose and the Artist Print. As soon as I get a bit of this new afghan done, I'll have to take a photo. Ah yes, folks, I'm a happy little camper.
Sad to say, I did not take any photos while I was out yesterday. But I do have a couple new photos that dwarf Helen took of our cats. They are getting so big and healthy looking now. Blackie is not so easy to photograph because he is so dark. He's a really huge cat and he plays a bit rough, but he really loves his pal Luna. (I call her Sunshine, but the dwarfs changed her name to Luna.)
Luna is almost all white and quite dainty. When she isn't snoozing away on a fuzzy blanket, you might find her grooming her pal Blackie. As you can see, our cats look quite content.
My poor little guy is scratching away. His skin is getting so dry. So today I've started him back on his itch medicine, and in a little while, I'm going to give him a rub down with olive oil. Of course, he may need another bath after that, but I'm hoping it helps with the dry skin.
It's not easy to get Pogo to take all the different supplements that I got for him. To make life easier, everything is in liquid form. However, he does not like for anyone to go near his mouth, so even liquids aren't easy to administer. If there were at least one food that I knew for sure he would eat, I could put the medicine in the food. But Pogo is quite the picky eater, so this doesn't often work.
Well, time is fleeing and my coffee cup is empty. So I think I'll get started on that olive oil rub for Pogo. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
