God afternoon. Tis cold here, and my car is frozen. It runs, but I cannot get into it. The locks and doors are frozen shut. Pogo and I were all ready and wet out to get in the car, but surprise! After trying with no success to get into my car, we came back into the house. I had to call the VCA and reschedule Pogo's appointment til next week.
Well, now I know why my eyes would not stay open yesterday. I have a full blown cold! Thank goodness for Alka Seltzer, cough drops, and anything else I can get my hands on. So, now I'm back in my jammies and flannel housecoat. In a little while, I'll maybe indulge in a little nap. Hmm, maybe not, because Joe will be home soon and Pogo will be wanting to go out into the house and have his turkey treat.
One good thing about having this cold is that I fell asleep early last night and slept just about the whole night. But that's it. The cold itself is sucky! Thank goodness I have my little Pogo. Without him, I probably wouldn't get out of bed until my cold was all gone. He does keep me going, and I'm so thankful for him.
Last night DIL Janet came by and brought us take out supper from Wendy's. Oh yum yum! I haven't had that in a long time and it was simply delicious! We had a super visit, and got a surprise when it was time for her to go home. It had been snowing and the wind was blowing pretty good. It was too cold for me to go outside so I had to wave goodbye from inside the door.
After watching TV for an hour, it was time for a date with the sandman. I think Pogo has a cold too. He's beside me on the sofa snoring away, all snuggled into a pile of blankets. He did not want breakfast today, so maybe he's just not feeling right.
A couple days ago, our turkey friends came back to feast once again on our birdseed. I did take a couple photos to share here. These birds really are fun to watch.
This second photo shows the turkeys enjoying the cup full of birdseed that Joe threw out for them. The rest of the flock is over by the bird feeder. I think there were about thirty or more turkeys in this group. Isn't nature great?
I borrowed this picture from a friend's blog to share here. The message it gives is a very important one for all of us. I think that all generations should be able to interact with one another, and enjoy being with each other. We have so much to learn from each other.
Well, I think it's time for my Alka Selter cocktail. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
