We're Having A Cold Snap

January 11, 2016

Good morning.  After such a warn day yesterday, today feels wicked cold.  Our temps have dropped from the 50's to the 30's.  Brrrrr!  At least the sun is shining so it doesn't feel quite so bad.  It should be in the 30's all week with maybe a couple of days hitting 40F. 

Well I got up early this morning, 6:30 a.m.  I made coffee and fed Pogo, and then I spent the next couple of hours paying bills and taxes and getting it all ready for mailing.  Such a fun way to start the day!

In a couple hours, Pogo and I will head out to do a couple of errands and take the car to the dealership for it's winter check-up.  On the way home, I think we'll treat ourselves to a visit to JoAnn's Fabric store and see what they have for yarn.  We had planned to go there over the weekend, but it did not happen.

This afternoon, I would like to start working on ordering my next blog book.  I just have to decide on a couple of photos for the front and back covers.  I also want to look up Pogo's old groomer.  Her work was always good, and Pogo is in need of a hair cut. 

Last evening I got a nasty surprise.  I went to copy the instructions for the little crochet dress, and the pattern was gone.  I've looked everywhere and cannot find it.  For some reason I seem to be losing a lot of things from my laptop.  Today I'll back up all my files again.  Just in case.

Later, I'll go looking for another dress pattern.  Maybe I'll get lucky and find the one I had.  That would be nice.  While I'm at JoAnn's, I'll see if they have a pattern book with something I like.  I do have a crochet poncho pattern for little ones.  However, I think this will be nice for both new babies next year when they are walking. 

There's really not much else happening here right now.  The dust bunnies are happy to be indoors while it is so cold outside.  I could run the vacuum but my NCD is acting up, so the dust bunnies are safe for another day or two.

On that happy note, I think I'll wash the breakfast dishes and decide on what to wear out today.  Ah, such a big decision!  In this cold, of course it's sweat pants and a sweat shirt.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Not nice that it is getting colder. Ah well, I suppose it is the season for it(just cross our fingers it will be a very SHORT one LOL).
We were early up too(earlier than normal), because of the upstairs neighbours getting busy. Hope it will not last too long.
But it had also a good side. After we had our coffee and watched the news and all that, I got busy in the house. Did some ironing, than did the kitchen floor, then run the vacuum, and I was feeling quite happy about myself, yeah!
I will look if I can find a simple explanation of how to do your bloglayout.
If you want I am happy to make one for you, you only will have to put it in the template.
hopefully you will find the pattern again you lost. It sometimes happens on computers, apparantly, that we loose some things and it feels like a mystery hahaha.
Have a lovely day.

I love NCD! Hee Hee! Ah...the cold weather, I swear we all were just talking about it a minute ago (last winter). I want to do a blog book one of these days. Should I do from first to last? Just need to get some money coming in. I have had a sinus headache for two days. Tried everything so rest is the best cure for me. I may take a quick cat nap! Take care.
