Good morning. It's not quite seven o'clock and the temperature is 5F degrees. During the day we may even get up to 7F degrees. Oh joy, oh joy! The temperature with the wind chill factor is -14F degrees.
Well, it rained most all day yesterday. I took a nap in the afternoon and while I was sleeping, it must have rained a layer of sleet on top of everything. Joe and a couple other dwarfs had shoveled the whole driveway, and it was covered with a layer of ice when I got up from my nap.
My car was covered with a thin layer of ice and icicles.
I just started my car to make sure she is still running, and yup! She started right up! I am not going out today but I do worry for everyone who has to be on the roads today. I'm watching the weather forecast and they are saying that we have another wicked cold front coming through later in the week. Aye yi yi yi yi!
I was asked by a reader how many beads my new bracelets took. It all depends on the size of the beads and the size of the bracelet. Here's what I used for the ones I already made: Pink - 66, Green - 70, Black - 89, Lt. Blue - 77. I also have charms to hang from one end of the bracelet. At least, that's what I'm planning. I may have to have some help bending the wire ends because my hands just aren't as strong as they used to be. We'll see when my new pliers get here.
Would you like to meet a friend of mine? This is Raffee. He's an adorable giraffe and his special talent is massaging my neck and shoulders.
I have some cute photos of him to share, but I'll save them for tomorrow's post. My grandson Kevin gave him to me a couple years ago. Raffee is oh so soft and cuddly; and oh my, he makes my neck and shoulders feel sooo good!
Now I'm off to make a fresh cup of coffee. Unfortunately, if I don't drink it up right away, it doesn't stay warm very long. I may even heat up a bowl of pasta for Pogo and me. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day and STAY WARM!
Hugs, Edna B.
