Temps Are Warming Up A Bit Today

January 23, 2019

Good morning.  I've been up for a couple of hours, but I've been busy working on a quick page for today.  Somehow it just never got warm enough to come out from under the blankets to do a bit of designing.  This morning though, temps are already up to 18F degrees.  It looks as though it could reach as high as 42F degrees before the day is over.  Woo Hoo!

This is good because I do have to go out today to do a couple errands and to pick up Jazzy at the college this afternoon.  Even if it is raining, the warmer temps are very welcome.  As for the rain, no it is not raining now but the weatherman says that it will rain tonight and all day tomorrow.  Actually, we'll be having flood watch alerts till tomorrow evening. 

There was so much that I wanted to do these past couple of days, but it wasn't enough to tempt me and Pogo out from under our blankets.  I should mention (for new readers) that there is no basement beneath my part of this big old house, so when it is cold outside, the cold comes right up through my floors. 

Ah, but today we get a much needed break.  Pogo and I got up and had our breakfast, then I sat down to do some things on my laptop.  Pogo has since crawled back under his afghan and is napping.  My little guy is going to turn thirteen this April.  You'd never guess it though, he still hops around like a happy puppy.

On TV they are showing some of the different little houses that fishermen put up on the ice so that they can enjoy some ice fishing.  It is soooo different than how we did it in my day.  Yup, I did do a bit of ice fishing in my very younger days.  We didn't have houses on the ice, but we did have something to sit on and a thermos full of hot coffee. 

Has anyone seen the TV ad for (I believe) Chantix?  You can correct me if I'm wrong about the product being sold.  Anyway, the ad features an adorable turkey.  I guess it's saying that instead of trying to quit smoking "cold turkey" you should do it "slow turkey."  My point being that this turkey is just the cutest thing, and so very entertaining. 

Today I have a new quick page for you.  This one might be nice for your winter weather photos.  Have fun with it. 

Here is your download link:

Now I want to do a bit of blog reading before heading to the kitchen and a sink full of dishes waiting to be washed.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day and STAY WARM AND SAFE.

Hugs, Edna B.

It's been raining all night here and still is this morning. It was raining very hard with lots of wind. Our temp now is 37 degrees. That's cold for me. I am going to do like Pogo...back under the blanket for a while longer. Stay warm and have a good day. It's going to get better.

I was thinking of you up there in New England with the cold temperatures. We have had some bitter weather also and I did not go out unless I had to. My house is old also and very drafty. My little space heater stove has been running for days. It's supposed to be better today and tomorrow and I am so happy about that. Hope you and sweet Pogo stay warm. Stay under those blankets if you need to.

I have not seen the commercial for chantix but it is a miracle drug in my eyes!! I quit over ten years ago using it. It was crazy...I just all of the sudden did not want to smoke anymore!! Awesome drug!
