Good morning. Well, I woke up this morning at a little before eight o'clock and the temperature (outside) was only 2F degrees. That means I just have to go back under the blankets until it warms up a bit more.
It's three hours later now and the temperature has climbed up to 7F degrees. Woo Hoo! Obviously Pogo and I will not be going outside today or probably anytime soon. I just phoned the hospital (and left a message for their pharmacist) to see if they could phone in a prescription for Pogo. I do believe he has ear mites. I'm not sure where he picked this up, but he keeps scratching and I just want to help clear it up.
My little guy finally ate something last night. I gave him hamburg and he wasn't very interested. So I put some of my spaghetti on his plate and cut it all up and mixed it in with his hamburg. He licked his plate clean and asked for seconds. This morning he had another plate of it for breakfast.
This morning, I've been watching the reality show "Chrisley Knows Best" on TV. You know, I'm not really into reality shows but this one really is quite entertaining. I absolutely love the grandmother. She definitely keeps me smiling.
Today I have a few photos to share . This first one is Pogo putting his new little yellow lamb in its place. The little lamb just wants to snuggle, but Pogo is letting it know that these are his things and not to get too chummy with them. Well, at least that's what it looks like.
Next is a photo of the new walking, barking doggie that dwarf Mike gave to Pogo. Hmmm, Pogo hasn't decided yet what he thinks of his new friend.
Next is this beautiful hand embroidered towel that my friend Mary Ann sent to me. The dog is a Chinese Crested, which is what my Tootsie was, except that she was born with hair. The hand work is just gorgeous. I love it. Thank you Mary Ann.
This last photo is a bird feeder that my friend Kyra sent to me. You can put some seeds on the saucer, and then hang a treat ball from inside the upside down cup. Now I can't wait for Spring to hang this up in the garden near my porch. Kyra, I love it. Thank you.
When I first started typing this post, dwarf Helen came to ask if I wanted her to go out and start my car. Well, yes I certainly do. Thank you so much Helen. And then just a few minutes ago, she went out to shut it off and bring back my key. Yeah, I know, I'm spoiled, but I love it.
Yesterday, daughter Deanne stopped by the store and brought me a few staples. Bread, milk and lettuce. That's about all I needed. The larder is full, so Pogo and I can ride out these wicked cold temperatures. At least, that's our plan.
Well, now I think I need to find my way to the kitchen and wash the dishes that are waiting for me in the sink. There are two things that I can do that actually look like I did something. That is to wash the dishes and to do the laundry. When I finish the dishes, I think I'll do a load of laundry too. After that, it's playtime for Pogo and me.
I'm off now, so till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
