Good morning. The sun is shining, it's sixty four degrees and there is a teeny tiny breeze wafting past my flag every now and then. I'm thinking that today Pogo and I will sit out on the porch for a while and go through a large stack of magazines and catalogues before tossing them into the recycle bin.
Today, so far, is a much better day for me. Yesterday, the pain went from my neck down to my upper back. Actually, though, it was my own fault. I can only stand in one spot for a couple minutes before the pain starts. I was standing, going through a large box of old papers and other stuff, trying to get rid of a lot of things.
Eventually I had to stop and take a pain pill. Then, while I was muttering under my breath, I carried the large box full of stuff outside and tossed it all in the recycle bin. After that, I rested a while before trying to start supper. Finally I put everything back in the refrigerator. When DIL Janet got here, we ordered sub sandwiches for our supper.
I guess I can add shredded steak and cheese to the list of foods that Pogo will eat. He would not leave Janet's side until she shared a good part of her sandwich with him. If she wasn't fast enough with the food, he would give her a nudge or a little woof to remind her to speed up a bit.
The pain in my back was getting increasingly uncomfortable so I got My Pillow and put it behind my back while I was sitting in the lounge chair. This really did help considerably, so that's how I slept all night long. I actually had a good sleep! Guess who did not wake up grumpy?
Last night, I was watching JTV (jewelry television channel) because they are beginning their year end inventory clearance sales and I'm looking for a couple things that I need for birthdays and Christmas. Oh Wowsie! Did I ever get lucky! I found one of the items that I am looking for. And such a great price! Now I can cross one more thing off my Christmas shopping list. Hmmm, maybe that's why I slept so good.
I absolutely love a great sale. Don't you? Next month, the sale prices will be awesome. When I give a gift of jewelry, I prefer to give real gem stones set in sterling silver. Especially when they cost less than costume jewelry.
My yellow iris are starting to bloom, so I just went outside and took some photos. I'll post them tomorrow. Today, I dug a couple photos out from my archives to share. I love to see the bees enjoying the flowers in my gardens. It's a good sign.
Google is starting to do weird things on my post so I'll have to call it a day. Till tomorrow folks, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
