Good afternoon. My goodness, I slept super late this morning. Of course, I was up half the night reading another book by Sidney Sheldon. This one is Memories of Midnight. Today is another beautiful day with lots of sunshine and temps in the seventies.
Yesterday, Deanne came by with another super delicious meal. This one had grilled chicken, noodles and corn. Mmm, mmm, mmm. While she was here, she set up my new cooktop. I did not get to use it though because I already had supper meals for Pogo and me. So today I'll give the new burners a try.
In the afternoon, I went through all my canned goods and bagged up all the ones that I can no longer have. I filled up a shopping bag with all the cans. I imagine I'll have to do the same thing with my freezer soon.
Pogo and I went out on the porch to see if there were any birds to photograph. Here's a new photo of my handsome little fellow. It's hard to get good photos of him because he just won't look at me if he thinks I'm taking his photo.
There were several birds in the yard, but I'm drawn to the Blue Jays. They are so beautiful. Here are two of my better shots.
Later in the afternoon, my daughter Audrey called. She gave me another nice recipe and some wonderful tips. I decided that she and Deanne should collaborate on a new recipe book for folks on low/no salt diets. I love recipes that only have a few ingredients. I also like short cuts. (as long as they are super tasty!) I will save all their recipes and tips in a folder, and when the time is right, they can put their book together.
I went out around 3:30 this morning with hopes of seeing the new green full moon. Sad to say I saw nothing. Drats! I just looked it up on Google, and it says that the moon should be visible tonight around midnight. I guess I'll just have to try again.tonight.
My blood pressure seems to be doing rather well. I just took it and it's 125 over 69. That's the lowest it's been in quite a while. Tomorrow afternoon I have a doctor appointment to have more labs done. I'm hoping that this will be my last appointment for a while.
Now I think I'll do a bit of blog reading, then see what's for lunch. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
