Good morning. It's not early. I did get up before daylight this morning, but Pogo did not want his breakfast so I went back to bed. Today is a speck warmer than yesterday. Tis 25F degrees, and hopefully will get up close to 31F degrees. No sunshine though. Tis breezy and gray outside.
Yesterday was a lazy day here. Pogo and I spent most of the day under a blanket to stay warm. Obviously, we got in a bit of napping. We needed it, so it felt good. However, I'd really like to get back on a better sleep schedule. You know, sleep at night, play and work at day.
Well, the mail just came and it was not full of good news. The first letter I opened was from the bank that holds the mortgage on my house. They are saying that my house insurance is expired and because I have not provided proof of insurance, they will get me some insurance but it will cost me quite a bit more.
I go through this every year with this company. The insurance broker told me in December that this company was notified of my insurance renewal. The bank claims they know nothing of this. I'm thinking that it's probably time for either a new bank or a new insurance broker.
The next letter that I opened was from my personal care doctor explaining that because I missed my last appointment, all future missed appointments without a 24 hour notice will cost me $50.00. I called the doctor's office to find out what this was all about.
I explained that I had woke up sick that morning and had called their office right away, and that they had rescheduled my appointment to this week. When the receptionist checked the appointment book, she could not find any appointment for this week. She said she did not know why this was, but she would reschedule it again. This time for the beginning of February. I'm not really crazy about this new doctor so now I'm wondering if maybe I need to find a new doctor too.
Thank goodness for the catalogues and the magazine from AARP. At least they were not bad news. January and February are not great months for me. Maybe this is the main reason I so look forward to Spring. That and the nice weather that Spring usually brings.
Today I have a photo of the yellow afghan to share. This one is going to be all one color. It's going to take quite a while to finish because it's bigger than my other afghans and it is all the one color. For some reason, the afghans seem to work up quicker when there are other colors to break up the monotony. But it really is pretty. (and much brighter than this photo shows)
Yesterday was a football day for lots of folks. Our team, the Patriots, won their game. Daughter Audrey's team, the Eagles, did not win their game. How about you? I'm not really much of a football fan, but I do hope our team goes for the championship again. And wins, of course.
A little while back, I ordered a gorgeous Smoky Quartz ring from the ShopLC channel. It was a huge discounted sale price, $30.00, so I couldn't resist it. It arrived a couple days ago, and oh my, it is just beautiful. It's golden brown and set in silver. I happen to like silver the best. The underside of the ring is finished beautifully.
Do I need this? No, of course not. But I do love to wear pretty rings. And I only shop really good sales. And Pogo says it's okay. So that's that.
Tomorrow I have a morning appointment with my orthopedic doctor. So, unless I get up early, I may be posting after lunch. Just thought I'd mention it. Today I'm trying to scrounge up a little energy so that I can get a few things done around here.
Now I think I'll do a bit of blog reading before looking for some mischief to get into. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
