Good morning. Tis early and I've been up for a while. I woke up around three this morning, and could not get back to sleep. So I got up, made some coffee and breakfast. Pogo doesn't want his food just yet so I've put it in the fridge.
Today is supposed to be really warm (in the fifties) and tomorrow we're supposed to have a wicked snow storm so I guess I'd better do a bit of grocery shopping this morning. I don't really need much, just milk and a few other things, but I don't know when I'll get out again so I'll do it today.
I had a couple questions regarding where the health gadgets that I mentioned yesterday can be found. I would guess that most pharmacies or Walmarts carry them. However, I found them both on Amazon. The pulse oximeter cost starts at around $14 and up. The cost of the wrist blood pressure monitor averages between $20 and $25. These prices are on Amazon.
The new hat that I'm working on (to match the Flamingo scarf) is more than half done and is quite pretty. I took a photo of the orchid set before I put it in a zip lock baggie. It fits perfectly in the gallon size.
When I was picking up food for Pogo this week, I found a couple other choices from Blue Buffalo that I thought he might like and I bought a couple of them. Needless to say, "when will I ever learn?" Obviously, Pogo was not very happy about this and refused to eat them. I'm not going to complain though because I'm happy that he's finally eating doggie food.
Gosh, I think I need to do some laundry later today. I haven't done any in a while and now I'm running out of things. Even Pogo has a pretty good sized bundle of shirts and sweaters that need to be washed. Actually, I have a lot to do before Pogo and I leave for Florida, and time just seems to keep flying by before I get anything done.
I have purposely not been posting about a lot of news items because I get so upset about all the stupidity and lawlessness that is running rampant in this country and I don't want to post any of that crap on my blog. I've even cut back on the amount of time I spend checking out stuff posted on Facebook.
I can ignore a lot of the hateful posts, but when I see people that I know posting a lot of it, that really hurts. We are all entitle to our own beliefs, but to be constantly spewing hatred is just not right and it makes me very uncomfortable. So if you notice that I don't ever comment on remarks that some folks may have made public, please understand why.
Now I need to make a grocery list, and maybe do a couple things around here before I go to the market. Today I also need to reorganize the shelves where I store all my pots and pans. They seem to be getting a bit crowded. I'm hoping to get a bunch of energy once the sun is shining. Hmmm, it's not shining yet, but I have hope that it will be soon.
So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
