Good morning. For goodness sakes, Mother Nature seems to be playing April Fools jokes on all of us. There is severe weather in several parts of the country, and we're about to start all over with winter weather.
We won't have to wait until Tuesday for the snow to get here. The rain starts tomorrow, and the snow will be here for Sunday and Monday along with cold temperatures. My beautiful little daffies are already starting to sing "Woe Is Us."
We were all set to bring out the rakes and start cleaning up all the dead leaves and winter debris from the gardens. Thankfully, we did not. We still have some cold weather to get through.
Yesterday, I had a morning doctor appointment for a regular check up. Surprise!! It was also time for more blood work and a shingles shot. Oh goody goody! By the time I left there, I also had a prescription in my pocket for the new pneumonia shot. I will have to check around to see which pharmacies have this vaccine.
By the time I got home, it was after lunch time, and I needed to feed my little guy. You know, the nicest part of having to go out for appointments or grocery shopping is all the hugs and kisses I get from Pogo when I get home. Mmmm, super nice!!
Speaking of grocery shopping, Joe and I will be doing that later today when he gets home from work. We could put if off till tomorrow, but it will be raining then. We might as well go today and get it over with.
Do you remember getting a Spiegel catalogue years ago? I came across an ad from Spiegel and decided to look them up. I found their website and signed up for their newsletter. A couple days ago, I got a new ad from them about their craft web site, Spiegel Create And Craft. Check it out. It looks like a fun place.
They have a sewing machine on sale, and I must have spent at least a half hour drooling over the description. I finally had to close the page. I'm not ready yet to buy the new machine, but oh my, it is certainly a beauty! Maybe this will give me the incentive to clean out my little computer room to make a space for sewing projects. Hmmm.
DIL Janet came by Wednesday after work, and brought tons of homemade cookies with her. Yum yum. I usually pick out the oatmeal raisin cookies, and share all the rest with the dwarfs and Dee and Eddie. Janet could make a fortune if she sold these cookies.
Today is the start of another new month, so here is the April page from my calendar.
Now I think I'll start a load of laundry. This is the part of housework that I do well. (Well, the machines do all the work, but I do the folding!) So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
