Maybe Some Snow Today?

January 10, 2019

Good morning.  Tis early, not yet daylight here in New England.  Pogo and I just finished our breakfast and he's already curled up next to me, snoozing away.  I'm turning on the Weather Channel to see what's in store for us today.

It looks like we might be having snow showers this morning with temps getting up to 33F degrees.  This will be the warmest day for us for the next several days.  Maybe we'll go out to do a couple errands this morning.  I really do need to go to the bank so that I can pay the next batch of bills that are coming due. 

Last night DIL Janet came by after work, after stopping by her favorite bakery to pick up something for our dessert.  After supper, we watched our favorite program, Project Runway All Stars.  This year the contestants are winners of the program from all around the globe. 

A few days ago, I mentioned the new Home Depot catalog that came in the mail.  I took this photo to show you the new look for this store.  It reminds me of a mini Ikea catalogue.  Actually, I think this is the first catalog I've seen for Home Depot.  Hmmm, maybe they are making some changes?

I don't remember if I posted a photo of the pretty glass pieces that Audrey made at her last stained glass class, so I'm posting it today.  These pieces are really beautiful Audrey.  You did a wonderful job.

We are smack dab in the middle of the flu and cold season.  I'm hoping everyone made sure to get their flu and pneumonia shots this past Fall.  A lot of folks are getting pretty sick.  I, for one, am doing my best not to catch anything.  Winter and Spring are my seasons to be quite sick with pneumonia and other respiratory problems. 

A friend posted this chart on the web, and I thought I'd share it here with you.  I have to say that some of these items really surprised me. 

Yesterday's mail brought me that dreaded envelope from my accountant.  It has all sorts of forms for me to fill in with information for the government.  I'm still wondering why they need to know about any changes in my personal bank account (s).  Why is this their business?  I don't fill in this part of the forms. 

Pretty soon, I will have to sit down and get serious about getting all my tax stuff in order.  Oh joy, oh joy.  I kept pretty good track of expenses during the first six months of the year, then I slacked off.  Sorry, but this is not a fun area for me.   At least I will only have to go hunting for the last six months of expenses.

Someone suggested that I make a basket to put on my walker for Pogo to sit in.  I did find a pattern online that I might try to make.  It looks easy enough, but looks can fool you. 

I really have to think about whether I should take my walker or Pogo's stroller to Florida.  The walker does not have a place to put things.  The basket would be for Pogo to ride in.  However, the stroller does have a handy covered basket at the bottom.  I'll have to give this some thought. 

Now I think I'm going to do a bit of blog reading before deciding what we'll do today.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Love the basket for Pogo:) You could rent a walker when you get to Florida if you decide not to take yours. I am jealous that you get to retreat to the warmer climate in the Winter. Nice to have that to look forward to:) Have a blessed day dear friend, hope you get your errands done before the weather hits! HUGS!

Appy belated Birthday to Jasmine! Gosh,already 19 years, it is going so quick!
I too have sometimes those bursts of energy, and I take advantage of it, to do the most I can, because i know that the next day and several days after it, energy level will be very low! But it is still nice to have those energy moments, LOL.
Oh, taxes, don;t mention it! here too the tax office wants to know the amount of moeny you have on your bak account(s), and the possible interest you received n them. (here the interest rates are practically nothing, I remember years ago we still had a nice little sum of money extra on the account from that)

Perhaps a good idea to find someone who can take care a bit of your garden, the work for you is too exhausting now.ou have also Joe who c an perhaps do somehwat, but an extra pair of hands would be nice.

Almost time for me to make dinner(easy, I already prepared it earlier this afternoon, so I only have to heat it.)and then have a comfy seat on the couch and watch some tv.
You have a wonderful day and stay warm.

I love the little basket for Pogo. My walker has a basket and it doubles as a seat. Only problem with you using mine is that the basket faces inwards so he would not be able to look out. All he could see would be your tummy or mine. He wouldn't like that. I am not sure I will take mine with me to Florida this year. It is cumbersome.
I will call you a bit later. I have some things I have to do. My stomach is feeling ikky today...
Hugs my friend to you and Pogo... Oh Audrey's stained glass is really interesting. She did a good job... Hugs Beth
