Good morning. Today is a bit damp, there are a few puddles in the yard. The temperature is 37F degrees, but working its way up to the mid fifties. The sun is trying very hard to poke out from behind the clouds. Tomorrow is promising to be another sunny warm day. Woo Hoo! I can definitely dig it!
Another woo hoo is that I don't have to go out today. Nope, I get to make a couple phone calls, and any other household chores that I deem to be exciting. Did I just say "exciting"? The only fun chore that I can think of is doing the laundry. I put it in the machine dirty, and it comes out clean. I put it into the dryer wet, and it comes out dry. I fold it and put it away. Eazy Peazy!
Well, yesterday turned out to be a busy day for me. I had planned on going grocery shopping, but first I wanted to wait for my order from Omaha Steaks to arrive. It came at 2:30. By the time I opened it, looked everything over and put it away in the freezer, I was too tired to go shopping.
Before I could put the meat order away, I had to re-arrange everything in the freezer. I decided that this was a good time to clean out everything that was old. It's amazing how much food we tuck away in the freezer and forget. Mine is a standup freezer about the same size as a refrigerator. I love it, but I found too much old and forgotten food that had to be tossed out.
Now that everything has been re-arranged, I can see everything that is in the freezer. I guess my next clean out project should be my kitchen refrigerator/freezer. Hmmm, maybe tomorrow. Today I'm setting up my new land line phone. (I already set it up and now it is charging. Now I have to read the manual on how to use it.)
Yesterday I had a lot of calls to make, but everyone I called just kept saying "Hello? Hello?" Then they would hang up on me. Needless to say, this was very frustrating. After trying everything I could think of for more than an hour, I finally decided to use my cell phone to make my calls. This worked. I finally discovered that I could get incoming calls on my land line phone, but I could not make outgoing calls.
Now I have to go shopping whether I want to or not. I need a land line phone. So, just before supper time, I went shopping. On my way to the department where the phones were, I saw a young woman at a display table telling folks about ways to lower their electric bill. You know I stopped to listen to her.
When she was done telling me about her company, I signed up to give it a try. I'll try most anything (legal) to lower this wicked bill. The new program will start in May, so I'll give you an update in late Spring. If it saves me money, the real test will come next winter when the bills are at their highest.
I finally picked out a new phone and then filled my basket with groceries. Thank goodness Joe was there to help me bring everything into the house when I got home. I was exhausted by then. But the larder is full again and the new phone works so all is well.
While we were in Florida, Beth got me a new notebook that is really neat. I'm finding that it's the perfect size for taking notes while on the phone. So thank you, Beth. I think of you and Cisco every time I write in it. Isn't this pretty?
The only phone call I did not get to make yesterday was to the insurance adjuster. So, that's who I'll be calling this morning. I also want to call Big Brother Big Sister to let them know that I have a big bag of stuff for them to pick up. Then I have a few dishes in the sink that need washing. After that, I have a whole stack of catalogues and magazines that need to be gone through before being put out in the recycle barrel.
Today I have another quick page for you. This one if flirty and whimsical. Have some fun with it.

Now I think I'll make me a fresh cup of coffee and get started on my phone calls. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
