Good morning. It's a little after 7 a.m. and I've been up for a couple hours. I crocheted a bit, made some breakfast and checked my emails. I'm also learning my way around my laptop again. Yesterday I must have touched a button somewhere (don't know what or where) and everything on my desktop went cookoo.
I tried to make a bit of order on the desktop but learning to use the task bar while it is running up and down the side of the screen is a new thing for me. I don't know how to change things back to what they used to be, so I'm just doing the best I can with it.
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. SIL Eddie and a friend came by to take away all the bags of recycle bottles we have stored in the basement. The money will be given to a local animal shelter. Meanwhile, Pogo spent hours in front of his door enjoying the sunshine'
Doesn't he look like a tiny lion? I will have to give some thought to what type of hair cut he'll get next trip to the groomer. I love the clean look, but this tiny lion look is beautiful too. Hmmm, we'll see.
Well, we've come to the end of January, and now I really must buckle down and finish putting all my tax stuff together, adding lots of columns and keeping my bottle of Excedrin Migraine handy. What I could really use is something to keep the nerves from being so jittery. I know it's all because of the tax stuff, and it will go away in a few weeks, but it still makes me sick to my stomach until it is finished.
This year, I'll be working with a new accountant, so that in itself will be a new experience. Oh gosh, I'm too old for this stuff!! Ah well, I'll get over it.
I borrowed this next image from the web. What a great idea for a flower or berry garden when space is limited. It's made with pvc pipe and could make a very interesting garden. I'm thinking that it will be fun to see what other kinds of plants can be planted this way.
Now I really can't wait till Spring gets here. Only 48 more days!! Woo hoo!! It's time to start taking a serious look at the seed and flower catalogues. First on my list of plants is the citronella plant. I usually keep a couple of these near my door.
Soon it will be time to renew my contract with the Lawn Doctor. I enjoyed having a mosquito free yard last summer. We didn't see any ticks either. So, I guess the yard treatments worked just fine.
Well, the morning is slipping by quickly and I have laundry waiting to be done. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
