Pretty Isn't Always Best

February 11, 2016

Good morning.  I was watching the Weather Channel this morning, but I shut it off.  It was too depressing.  The cold temps coming in here just aren't funny.  The good thing is that warmer temps will be here by Monday.  So I guess we'll just hunker down and wait for the wicked cold to pass.

Late yesterday afternoon, my water pipes started acting up and making funny noises.  SIL Eddie will be by today to have a look.  Just what I don't need right now is problems with the pipes breaking or freezing.  Hopefully, it will turn out to be something simple.

After I posted yesterday, I realized that I had not posted your freebie quick page.  So I'll post it now.  Lola and her friend are celebrating Valentines Day by indulging in some delicious chocolates.

Here is your download link:

Speaking of chocolates, I'm still enjoying the wonderful treats and chocolate that I got for Christmas.  I still have one and half Godiva chocolate bars left.  Mmmmmm.

Yesterday, I called JoAnn's about the last batch of yarn that I bought.  The colors are absolutely gorgeous, but they don't work up very well with solid colors.  They actually look awful once you start using them.  I thought they were variegated, but they are not.  It's hard to explain, but I don't like them.  I discussed this with JoAnn's and they said I could return the yarn.  So today I'll re-pack the box of yarn and get it in the mail today or tomorrow.

I'm trying to decide which afghan project to take with me to Florida.  Perhaps I'll take the green yarn.  I'll have to start packing my suitcase by next week to see if the yarn will fit in with my clothes.  If not, I'll have to pack it up in a box and mail it to myself in Florida. 

Next Tuesday is supposed to be a really nice warm day, so I've re-scheduled Pogo's salon appointment for that day.  While he is getting all spiffied up, I'll do a couple of errands such as turn in my census paper, pick up Pogo's license tag and fill out an absentee voting ballot (the election day is while I'm away). 

Now I have to get busy and finish wrapping a birthday present so that SIL Eddie can take it home with him.  Grandson Kevin's sweetie, Janicee, was born on Valentine's Day.  I also have another box of baby clothes to send back with Eddie.  Unless things change, this new baby will be born after I leave for Florida.

Today I have a new picture puzzle for you to figure out.  I borrowed this from the web.  It took me a little while to find the cat in the picture.  How long will it take you to find the cat?  Here, Kitty Kitty!  Have fun.

Well, now I'm off to find some fun mischief to get into.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Wow Edna,
This is a hard puzzle. I looked until my eyes were crooked and never found the kitty! I will keep trying after my eyes take a break.

Nathan starts a new job today or tomorrow. It is still with a temp service but it is something to do while he holds out hopes on the companies that he has applied to. Our problem is transportation. I really hope that we can get a car soon.

I have tummy woes. No matter what I eat, it does not feel like it is digesting. I started back on the meds that my doctor gave me and they do help but seem to make me sleepy. A lot of my meds tend to affect me that way.

I am not liking my new coffee pot at all. The coffee is not staying hot, and the filter area is hard to get on and off for me. I have the box and as soon as I go back to Walmart, it is going back.

Well that is all the news that I have for today. You stay warm and have a great day! Hugs, Beth and Cisco!

Aweful that you have to cope with wicked temperatures. Good news is that by next week it will be better?
Here too we will have some nights with some frost, not nice, but hopefully that will only be for a few days.
Oh, hope that there isnt anything serious wrong with your pipes.
We don;t need those things at all!
Only thing I can say now is stay warm at the days that the weather isn;t too bright and take advantage of the days it is better to do all things you need for Florida.
Have a great day.
