Good morning. My goodness, yesterday we woke up to lots of snow falling (a minimum of six inches) and today we'll be enjoying temps in the mid fifties with lots of melting. And most likely rain too! Tomorrow the temps will be back down in the mid twenties. I guess Mother Nature isn't feeling so good.
Remember how I said that when the temps go way down that my floors get rather cold? Well, the other night I went to the pantry to change Pogo's pee pads and the pee was frozen. Hmmm, I guess there's a first for everything.
Joe was busy yesterday with his sister's funeral service and his family, so a couple of the dwarfs went outside to shovel snow. They shoveled around my steps and my car, the front door steps and the driveway. Today the warm temps and rain are helping to get rid of the rest of the snow.
Have any of you been watching the ads on TV about our baby boomers and HEPC? It seems that a large portion of this group has this disease. The ad finishes by saying "Be sure to ask your doctor to get tested."
Now I ask you, will it really help you if your doctor is tested for HEPC? If he has the disease, does this mean that you need to find a new doctor? At least until he or she gets treatment for the disease? I don't mean to make lightly of a serious situation, but there is a problem here. Have our schools stopped teaching proper English along with a lot of other important things?
My friend Andrea made this adorable card for Pogo. This is Pogo's friend, Izzi. She's inviting Pogo to enjoy a romp and play in the snow. Andrea, this is wonderful. Pogo and I love it. Thank you so much.
I'm always looking around for new and easy crochet patterns. Here's a pair of mittens that are super easy to make. At least that's what the pattern says. I may try to make a pair.
I was supposed to take my car in for its check up yesterday, but with all that snow I wasn't going to be traveling anywhere. I called and had the appointment changed to late tomorrow morning. It will be cold but at least the snow should all be gone.
On the way home from the appointment, I'll stop by the Post Office to mail a couple of small packages that got overlooked during the last two trips to the Post Office. They may arrive a bit late, but at least they'll get to their destinations.
Today I'd like to finish wrapping the last of the gifts. These are for family and friends who are local. I'm thinking that maybe Tuesday I'd like to do a bit of grocery shopping, and then I'm done till after Christmas.
Before I take my leave today, I have a wonderful picture to share with you. I borrowed this from the web. The message is: Don't buy! Please Adopt!!!! All our animals deserve to have a happy home.
I also have a new Christmas quick page for you. This one is whimsical. I hope you like it.
Here is your download link:
Now I'm off to enjoy my coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
