Good morning. Tis another Brrrrrrr morning here in New England. Too brrrrr for me! This morning, I finally decided that it was time to turn on the furnace. It will come on tonight when the temperature goes down to 40 degrees again. As you can see, I am not so crazy about shivering while under my blanket.
I guess this makes me wimpy, and that's okay. I spent the whole night trying to keep warm and filling my wastebasket with tissues. Everyone at Deanne and Eddie's house is sick with colds that are going around. So, I guess maybe it's not my allergies that is keeping me miserable. Maybe I have that nasty cold too. Goody. Just what I need right about now!
Today, I think I'll have to sit down and pay some bills. As a matter of fact, I just took a break to write out the checks and get them out to the mail box for pick up. Now I can breathe easier. My wallet is whining a little, but I'm happier when there are no bills due. Yes I know, my head is in the sand. There's another whole batch of bills coming in the mail any day now.
I went looking into my photo archives to find a couple photos for today. These two show the mist rising on the pond very early on an Autumn morning. I took these on my way home work a while back. The first shot was taken just before the sun rose up over the tree tops. The second shot was taken a little while later while the sun was rising.
I used to love stopping by the pond to watch the sun rise and take some photos. Once in a while I would catch some interesting shots of water birds. With or without the birds, it's very restful to watch the mist rise up off the water.
A few days ago, I ordered a few new beads and charms so that I can finish off all my bracelet projects. Unfortunately, I was not able to get them through Amazon, so I'll have to be patient and wait for them to get here via the regular snail mail. Gosh, I've been so spoiled by Amazon that it feels odd to have to wait for things to get here.
Seeing as how the temperature is a wee bit on the cool side, I think maybe I'll crochet a while today. I still have more than half of the last afghan to finish. Who knows, maybe I'll even watch the big debate on TV this afternoon.
The cable company is sending a technician out this afternoon to fix the outside phone wires. There has been a lot of static and other sorts of noises in my phone line since my new modem was put in. It will be nice to be able to use the phone again without all the noises.
On that note, I'll take my leave. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
