Good morning. Tis a bit dreary outside this morning. The temperature is 51F degrees, and will probably reach the mid 50's later on. I would rather stay indoors today, but I do have to go out this afternoon for a semi-annual check up with my regular doctor.
Have any of you with a blog noticed a difference? There is a notice on my blog that says the "http" in my address has changed to "https" and I think it has to do with security. Not really sure. I shall look it up later on Google.
My cell phone is weird today too. There's a black circle with an "x" in it on my screen. I don't know what it is about, and it makes it difficult to text, as it gets in the way of the letters. I'll have to call Best Buy later to find out what it is all about. I would call now, but they don't open for another half hour.
A couple days ago, while it was raining, I noticed that most all the leaves had fallen from my Red Japanese Maple tree. The ground below it was covered in bright red leaves. It was sooo pretty that I grabbed my phone to take a few photos. This is the view from my porch. (leaning over the gate)
I went into my archives and found this photo (of the same tree) taken four years ago on November 19th. It still had all of its leaves. Amazing how each year is so different.
Quite a difference, huh? I guess the same can be said about the flowers. Some years they are still blooming the beginning of December, and other years they are not. Right now, there are still a few petunias blooming, as well as some of my roses. Not many though, just enough to show a bit of color.
Some of my favorite old re-run programs on TV have been changed, so I've had to go looking for another channel with old programs. I found one called "MeTV". This morning I've been watching an old episode of Perry Mason. This program was one of my favorites in its day. Next up will be "Matlock," another great old program.
Ah well, I have a few things to do before I get ready for my appointment, so I'd best get busy. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
