It's Just Too Soon To Be This Cold!!!

September 26, 2016

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.

What lovely pictures! I loved them both and yes it is so nice to be able to stop and savor these kind of moments.
I am so sorry that your not getting to really enjoy the porch. Either it has been too hot and now it is a tad to cold. 40 degrees tonight is cold. No wonder your brrr.... I would be too.

I read your comment on my blog about the Pirate Ship. How wonderful that you were able to climb the rope and swing out over the water. I am pretty positive that my youngest sister did just that! She is the adventurous sort and if she fell in she would have loved it even better.
Sorry you hit your leg and I hope that it wasn't hurt to bad. But wow what a memory! I would have loved doing that and I am so glad that you and my brother in law and sisters were able to do it.

While your waiting for phone repair and paying bills, I have to do some emailing into my bank account to send to the property manager at the other place. Jonathan gave her my bank statements but it didn't have my name on it and the last 4 digits of my bank account number. I really think that these places require way too much information. Anyway I cannot figure out how to do it so I have a call in to Karyn to call me on her lunch as Jonathan is supervising today and is working until 7 and can't take care of it. So I will have Karyn do it for me.

Have a Blessed day and I hope that your cold/allergies go away soon. Stay warm hon.... Give Pogo our love and lots of kisses from Cisco and Me.. Love, Beth

Wow ! You have cooler temperatures than we have here .... that's rare ! Normally it's us here in rainy cold England who start to shiver first.
I still have the fan going here.... but then it's the occasional hot flushes that keep me warm as well,lol.

Hope you feel better soon and get over your sniffels fast
Hugs Snowy

The weather in Minnesota is definitely Fall. Cooler temps and lots of leaves blowing around. We both have head colds and are starting our trek westward with sniffles, sneezing and runny noses. Add to that wind gusts of 40mph rocking the RV back and forth and it was not a fun day of driving. We landed in Sioux Falls SD for the night, so at least we're out of MN and into another state. Take care of yourself...lots of fluids and rest.

Sorry to hear you had such almost shivers this night. It's that weird weather where at daytime the temps are still rather good but then drop aweful in the evening and night.
And that is just the way to get a cold Gosh, I hope you didn;t get an actually cold and that it will pass in a day or so.
I didn;t watch the debat of Clinton and trumo here(it was at night at 3.00 o'clock)but perhaps in some news prgrams we will have some parts of it.
Now you stay warm and drink a lot and hopefully the cold will fly away.
