Farewell To September

September 30, 2019

Good morning.  Wowsie!  Have you noticed that today is the last day of September?  Already?  Let's just hope that the winter months go by just as quickly.  I love the seasons that come with the colder weather, just not the cold weather. 

Yesterday I bought some new scrapbooking kits and started working on a new quick page.  I managed to finish one page, but it stills needs labeling, cropping and packing into a folder.  I'm getting there. 

Today is sunny, and the temperature is 57F degrees.  It won't get up much higher than sixty degrees today.  Temps are really cooling down now as Fall settles in.  It's time to get my trusty broom out and ready for travel.  Hopefully, it won't be too cold for Pogo and me to meet up with our friends and go on our annual ride.  I just had to borrow this adorable picture from the web.


Sometimes the web is on overload with pictures that make us smile.  I found this one and just had to borrow it to share with you.  It puts the biggest smile on my face.


Today I'm not making any plans.  Somehow when I make plans life gets in the way and the plans go astray.  If I manage to accomplish a few things, I'll call it an amazing day.  Goodness knows, there are lots of things here to keep me busy. 

When I think back to all the things I used to do in just one day, and all the time, it boggles this old mind.  When the kids were small, I would wash all our laundry in the sink or in the bathtub.  Then I would hang it out on the clotheslines to dry.  After, I would bring it all in, iron everything, then fold or hang everything.  Today, there is no iron and no clotheslines.  If I manage to get everything in the washer and dryer, then out and folded,  I've done a day's work.  Times have changed.

Here's another cute image that I borrowed from the web.  Somehow it seems to fit me just fine.  Hahaha. 


I just talked with Deanne on the phone.  Both she and Jazzy have caught nasty colds and are not feeling so chipper.  Take care girls, and I hope you both feel better really soon.  I love you. 

Now it's time to do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Fun With Paints

September 29, 2019

Good morning.  The sun is shining and temps are at 68F degrees and headed for the mid seventies.  Simply beautiful! 

Pogo woke me up at 3 a.m. because he was hungry.  Good mommy that I am, I got up and fed him.  After his tummy was full, we both went back to bed.  He drops right off to dreamland.  It takes me a while.  By 7:45 a.m. he was waking me up again so that he could go out into the house and get his turkey treat from Joe.  I get my exercise whether I want it or not.  hahaha.

God Bless Deanne, she had all the young 'uns again for the weekend.  Jack and Lilah are big enough to help now, but those three little ones keep Deanne on her toes and then some.  She kept them busy though.  Friday night, they all made tie dye shirts.  Then they danced the Hokey Pokey for a while.  (hopefully to wear them all out)

Yesterday, Deanne spread out large plastic sheets on the porch and gave them all poster board and Crayola Crayon Paints and brushes and let them get creative.  Later, Deanne sent me photos of everyone with their new shirts.  Here are Aurora, Xander and Alima showing off their new shirts.


And here is Jack and Lilah with their gorgeous new shirts.


Can you tell the kids had a fantastic time?  I got to spend some time with them Friday night via my Portal.  That's really a wonderful invention.  The kids loved talking (and watching) to the Portal on their end, and I loved talking with them and watching them enjoy themselves. 

As for me, I haven't been very busy.  I'm still getting better, I think about 90% by now.  I did do a load of laundry, and today I'll do another load of wash.  Maybe I'll even run the mop over the floors.  They surely can use it.  I have to put my trash out too.  After that, it will be nap time.  hahaha. 

Today, I have another "oldie" quick page for you.  I hope you can use it.


Here is your download link:

I tried picking up my crocheting last evening but I just wasn't in the mood.  So, today I'm going to try to get back into making some new quick pages.  We'll see what happens.  Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

A Short Trip Down Memory Lane

September 27, 2019

Goode morning.  The sun is shining and it is 60F degrees.  Later, temps will rise to the mid seventies.  Perfect!  Yesterday was nice, and late in the day we saw some rain.  Autumn is starting out rather nicely.

Well, so far today I'm feeling fairly good.  Only about 80%, but so much better than the  past week.  I told you I had a theory, so today I'll tell you what it is.  Lack of salt.  Simple, huh?  Trying to put together low salt meals while making sure that minimum requirements are met is not as easy as it sounds. 

Cutting out the salt is easy enough, getting the minimum is not. Add to that the fact that meals are no longer very interesting and you start to skip meals.  There are a lot of "healthy" foods that I do not like to eat, so making meals interesting isn't always much fun.  But I did manage to cut out the salt.  And the lack of salt managed to "cut out" me.

Wednesday afternoon, I picked up the phone and ordered Chinese take out for Pogo and me.  When it came, we both pigged out and enjoyed ourselves.  By six o'clock that evening, I was feeling so much better!  Yup, I needed a huge infusion of salt!  By the way, Pogo was feeling rather perky too!

This is important, because if I'm right about this, my diet can begin to look a bit more normal.  I can have better tasting meals and enjoy them.  I do still have to keep track of my salt intake.  I can only have treats such as Chinese take out once a month.  But at least I have that to look forward to. 

Today I have another "blast from the past" to share.  One of the finer moments of my life was not only being able to finally go to college, but to get a Masters Degree.  I was a grandma at the time, but it was still a really sweet feeling being able to do this.  Here, I put my new diploma together with a photo of me accepting it.  (Last name was different then because of a previous marriage.)


It doesn't seem like it, but all this happened thirty nine years ago.  Really!  And to make matters worse, part way into these studies, I fell and broke my ankle.  Now I had a heavy cast up to my knee, and had to go up and down stairs for my classes on my behind.  Yup!  A friend carried my books while I scooted up and down the stairs on my tushy.  No elevators back then.  But this was something that I really wanted, and I made it.

Here's another blast from the past that I found on the web and borrowed to share with you. 


When my kids were tiny, a trip to McDonalds was really a treat.  Look at these prices!  Imagine, a tasty meal for under a dollar and change back! 

On a serious note folks, it is Flu Season.  Don't forget to get your new flu shot.  Don't wait till you get sick or the supply of vaccine runs out.  Do it now and stay healthy.  My next trip out to WalMart, I will get my shot.  I'll call them later today to make sure they have the vaccine.   Here is a chart (borrowed from the web) that shows some foods to eat if you do get the flu. 


Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  After that, there are some dishes waiting in the sink that need washing.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

I'm Working My Way Back

September 26, 2019

Good morning.  Tis a lovely sunny Fall day here in New England, and I'm starting to feel like the old me again.  Thank you for your well wishes.  It's been quite a week here. 

I finally went into my laptop this morning.  It took me a half  hour to get rid of all the junk email.  It's amazing how much of it piles up when you don't check it every day.  It's a good thing I checked it today because there was a coupon there that I needed and it expires tonight.

I'm not sure what made me so sick, but I have a theory, and if I'm right, I'll talk more about it later.  I did call my doctor a few days ago to see if maybe there was a killer flu going around.  I haven't got my new shot yet and I was worried about it. 

I told the nurse on the phone what was happening to me, how I couldn't stand up and walk even a few feet without being so dizzy that I had to sit right back down.  I told her about the hot and cold sweats all day and night long and asked what might be causing it.  She said "Oh no, there's nothing going around that I know of.  I can't imagine what this might be.  Would you like to come in?"  I asked her  "do you really think I should try to drag my self out to my car and attempt to drive it when I can't even make it across the floor to the kitchen?"    I said thank you, hung up the phone and crawled backed under my blanket.

Is it any wonder that I don't have much admiration for today's doctors?  The old ones, the smart ones, are all my age and pretty much gone now.  Their replacements are only book smart (to a point) and have no person to person manners.  We used to call this bedside manners, but they don't see you sick in bed anymore so I'm not sure what you call it now. 

I watched an ad on TV a while ago, and I had to laugh.  The lady in the ad was saying to talk to your doctor, tell him all your worries. Discuss all things about your health with your doctor, ask him questions.

At no point, did this nice lady explain that each different subject is considered (by the doctor) as a consultation and billed to the insurance as such.  There's even a sign hanging up in the exam rooms now (at least at my doctor's office) that explains how there is no charge for the physical, but any discussion about something else is considered a consult and we have to charge you a copay.

Pogo had a doctor appointment yesterday morning but I had to call and reschedule it.  I still was not very good on my feet.  My little guy has been so good through all of this.  He doesn't understand why we couldn't go out on the porch or in the yard, but he does not complain.  I put his new bed on the end of the sofa and he would keep an eye on me while we napped.



One day, a while ago, I came across a photo on FaceBook that could have almost come out of my scrapbook and I downloaded it.  Then I went into my old photo archives to find my photo.  What do you think?   This is the Facebook picture.


And this is my photo.  I think this was taken in 1954 or 1955 and he was my first true love.


While I was looking for my photo, I came across a favorite old one of mine.  These were our first grandchildren, and Papa and I had taken them to the Fair for the afternoon.  They are, left to right, second born, JC,   third born, Trio,  and first born, Bobby.  We had this photo taken at the Fair.  Aren't  they just the cutest little guys?  Today they are all in their mid to late thirties.  Where has all the time gone?


Okay, enough of my babble.  I have so much blog reading to catch up on, it will probably take me a day or two to do it.  I haven't had a cup of coffee in a long time, so I'm going to make me a cup now and try to catch up on some of that reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

No Post Today, Not Feeling So Good

September 22, 2019

Sorry folks, no post today.  I've been laid up for a couple days now with a nasty cold.  Be back when I can and I'll get caught up with all my blog reading too.  

Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Just A Short Post Today

September 20, 2019

Good afternoon.  Sorry I'm late posting but I had a lot to do today.  Deanne came by and took me out to do a bunch of errands, plus a bit of grocery shipping.  By the time we were on our way back here, the warmth of the sun could be finally felt.  If only I figure out how to get the sun to shine inside my apartment.

Today was supposed to be in the eighties, but once again, the warm days have been pushed up again.  I do hope they are still coming.  When I wake up in the morning to 45F degrees, it does not make me so happy. 

This will be a very short  post.  I'm in a hurry to get back under my warm blanket.  Even Pogo is cuddling in that new bed I got for him a few moths ago.  He was in it all night, and this morning I had to pick him out of it so  that he could go potty.  Once that was done, he hopped right back into the bed. I did take a few photos, but first I have to crop them so that I can post them. 

I do have one funny story that I borrowed from the web to share with you.  I hope it gives you a giggle.


Guess who is snoring already?  Yup, Pogo!


This is very true, folks.  It makes my heart happy to listen  to him snoring.  Now I think I'm going to join him for a little while before I have to make us some supper.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

9/19/19 9:19:19

September 19, 2019 

Good morning.  Today is another very cool day here.  I guess the warm temps decided to wait another day before gracing us with their warmth.  Did you know that just a while ago we passed a landmark in time?  Yup.  It was 9/19/19 9:19:19.

Well, I did not get to go shopping yesterday.  Dwarf Mikey wasn't feeling so good when he got home from work so he went right to bed.  Not a problem.  There's still plenty of food in the house.  Instead, I busied myself doing goodness knows what. 

Just what does "goodness knows what" mean?  Does anyone know?  I know I was busy.  I just can't think of anything that I may have done that was meaningful.  (to someone else of course)  Whatever it was, it took all day to do it.  hahaha. 

This morning I've been watching the news on TV.  It just never gets better, does it?  A man kills his wife and says that his girl friend did it, not him.  An autistic child is handcuffed for kicking a school administrator before leaving the school unattended.  Another young man is being accused of terrorism and trying to maybe bring down a plane full of people. 

Wouldn't be nice if a story about something happy had to be played for every story about something bad?  It's an interesting thought.  I think we need more good news everyday to show that there are still lots of wonderful folks in this world.

I've been watching the news to follow the news about oil and gas prices.  Pretty soon I'll have to turn on the heat in the house and then the high heating oil prices will begin.  Sadly, the cold weather season seems to last all the way into next May.  That's close to eight months.  Sad!

Ever wonder why we wear the wedding ring on the third finger of the left hand?  Or why we have a best man at a wedding?  Or what makes candles keep lighting after the flame has been blown out?

 
 
Doesn't it make you feel smarter having all this extra information?  To be honest, it doesn't make me feel smarter.  I just enjoy reading it.  There's something new to be learned every time I turn the page.

I also want to bring to your attention something very distressing.  Please do not advertise your pets as "free to a good home" because some of those good homes are death sentences to our beautiful pets.  Please call a no kill animal shelter instead.  No animal deserves this horrific treatment.  (image borrowed from the web)


Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading, and maybe refresh my cup of coffee.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Happy Birthday Alena

September 18, 2019

Good morning.  Tis a bit nippy again this morning.  The temperature is only at 55F degrees.  Although the sun is shining, temps will barely make it up to about 62F degrees later today.  According to my phone weather app, we have three lovely warm days coming up next.  Gosh, I hope so. 

Today is great granddaughter Alena's birthday.  She is seven years old!  Happy Birthday Sweetie.  I hope your day is awesome and filled with love and sunshine.  Great Meema loves you.

One of the dwarfs is going to go grocery shopping with me today when he gets home from work.  I've made my list, trying to keep it short so that I don't keep him out too long.  I do appreciate him helping me.  While we're out, I also want to stop by the Post Office to mail some cards and buy some new stamps. 

After the rain the other day, I went outside to take some photos of the rain drops on the plants.  It always amazes me how the rain sits as perfectly round little beads of the leaves and petals and does not fall off. 



Most of my blooms have gone by but there are still a few hanging on.  A rose here or there, tbe butterfly bush, the Rose of Sharon and a few colorful weeds.


Has anyone noticed their creditors trying to force them to pay their bills either online or by an automatic withdrawal against their credit card or bank account?    I seem to be getting a lot of this lately.  Two companies have already tried not sending me a monthly statement.  Is this legal?  I know it's not fair to those of use who don't want to pay online or by automatic withdrawals.  I'll have to make a couple phone calls this afternoon when I get back home.

On the new Geico TV commercial, an office worker is trying to address something to the little Geico gecko but he can't remember the gecko's name.  Come to think of it, neither do I.  Do any of you know this famous little icon's name?  If so, please let me know. 

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before getting ready to go shopping.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Ever Wonder Why?

September 17, 2019

Good morning.  The sun is shining, but the temps will be in the mid sixties all day.  Tonight they will fall to the low fifties.  I feel the cold in my bones.  Brrrr.  I guess it's time to start the countdown till Spring time.  Amazingly, when Spring gets here, these temps will feel warm.

I did call to make an appointment for Pogo with the eye doctor.  He goes next Wednesday morning for his eye exam and whatever other tests they have to do to see if he is a candidate for cataract surgery.  I'm making a list of questions to ask the doctor. 

My little guy is hungry this morning.  I just cut up half of a hamburger for him (into tiny pieces) and there's hardly a sniff left on his plate.  He ate it all.  What a good boy! 

I've been reading another book that's really quite interesting.  It's called "Ever Wonder Why?" 



Today I have to make up a grocery shopping list.,  I'm running low on paper goods and a few staples.  I guess I'll have to try to make up a menu for a week or two so that I make sure to have everything I need on the list.  This will be a new project for me because I'm not used to planning menus.

Audrey sent me a couple more photos from Andi's wedding.  The first photo is the proud Papa (Mac) dancing with his daughter.  The second photo is the bride and groom dancing.  Charles and Andi.



Thank goodness for cell phones with cameras.  The photographer's photos won't be ready for a while, so these photos are very welcome.  Audrey did take a few videos with her phone and she''ll be sharing those with me soon. 

I have to call my health insurance to find out why there are copays on tests that are medically necessary.  I thought they told me before that these tests are all covered, but from the bills I'm getting, they aren't completely covered.  When you are over sixty five, you have to  be careful when your doctor starts calling for routine tests and blood work.  Make sure you need them or you may have to pay for them yourself. 

Now I'm off to do some blog reading before I get started on that shopping list.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Congratulations To Andi And Charles

September 16, 2019

Good morning.  The sun is shining and the temperature is at 60F degrees.  Later temps will get up into the mid seventies, making this another lovely Autumn day.

Well, not a lot has changed since my post late yesterday.  I did, however, get two photos sent to me from yesterday's wedding.  These were taken by a friend with their phone.  I will repost wedding photos later when I get copies of the ones that the photographer took. 

This first photo is the bride and groom, Andi and Charles Ward.  The second photo is Audrey and Mac.



I can't wait to get the photographer's photos.  The outfits alone must have been stunning.  Mac and Audrey said that it was quite beautiful and everyone had a good time.  I'm wishing Andi and Charles many years of happiness and love.

You'll never guess what just went down the street in front of my house.  The street cleaner machine.  I'm so surprised that they still use these machines.  Do any of them actually clean the street?  They mostly just kick up any dirt and debris by the curb and swirl it around into the street.  I do believe it would be best if folks would just go out and sweet the dirt up into a dust pan and put it into the trash bucket.  I know this sounds very old fashioned, but it works.

There's not much more news this morning, so I think I'll get on with my blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Congratulations to Andi And Charles

August 15, 2019

Good afternoon.  Goodness, I got involved in so many different things around here that I forgot to post on my blog.  Bad me!   What was I involved in?  Lots of things including paying a big stack of bills. 

Friday, Deanne, Pogo and I went to look at Tazers.  My goodness, they are big!  And expensive, but I already knew that.  I ended up buying a new pepper spray to carry in my purse.  I had one before, but I gave it to my daughter Audrey.    The new pepper spray units now come with a colored dye in them.  This way if the attacker runs away after being sprayed, the police can find him easier.  I thought that was pretty neat. 

This week I have to called for an appointment to have Pogo's eyes examined.  The cataract is making It harder for him to get around.  Especially after dark.  He's tiny, and everything seems to scare him.  I did call last Friday but was told to call back on Monday.

Today, Andi and Charles were married.  This is Mac and Audrey's daughter and new son in law.  I'm still waiting for photos, but I do have one I can share.  This is Alena dressed as the flower girl for her Mom and Papa.  Isn't she a cutie?  I can't wait for more photos.  I've never seen a wedding like this. 


So far, our days have been rather nice.  It's the nights and early mornings that are a wee bit cool.  I did notice that some of the trees have some drastic color changes.  Deanne said that she will take me out later this week with my camera so that I can get some photos of the foliage. 

Friday night I finished reading another book.  These books are all on my bookshelf.  I've read them before but they deserve a second reading.  When I finish reading them, I put them into a bag to be shared with someone else.  This latest book was "Inheritance" by Judith Michael.  I really enjoy her books.


Most of yesterday I was looking for a ring that I seem to have lost.  With the cooler temperatures, my fingers tend to get a bit thinner and my ring just fell off somewhere.  I am heartbroken about it.  I've been checking everything, rubbish, recycles, bedding, clothes, the yard, my car, etc.  So far I have had no luck in finding it. 

Today I have two more "oldies but goodies" quick pages for you.  I hope you can use them.

Nature's Beauty All Around Us

September 13, 2019

Good morning.  It is BRRRRR!  in here this morning.  The temperature is up to 57F degrees outside and will only make it into the low sixties today.  Pretty soon we'll be in the longest (and coldest) season of the year.  Winter.  It seems to last at least six months every year.  Not my cup of tea.

Well, we finally got a little rain yesterday.  At first it was heavy enough to make a few puddles, then it was light till the afternoon sun came out.  Meanwhile, I was able to go out on the porch and take a few photos of the raindrop bubbles in our one big puddle. 

Have you ever noticed how drops of water make beautiful bubbles when they go splat! in a puddle?  Here's a few photos of my water bubbles.






You really don't have to look very far to find something beautiful or interesting to photograph.  The other day, Joe was out feeding the birds and small critters and he spotted a baby squirrel sitting all by itself and looking a bit bewildered.  We did not know if  it was injured, or just waiting for it's mother.  Joe put down a pile of seeds and corn near it along with a bowl of water. 

Meanwhile, I grabbed my camera and went out to the porch.  I got a lot of photos before this tiny little cutie was scared off by something that I did not see.  I just hope it found it's way home.  Isn't this just the cutest little fellow?



My friend Beth tells me that she has a kitten and a very young possum who come to her doorstep every day for food and water.  She's very lucky.  Animals seem to know who they can trust to help them with food and maybe even shelter.

Today I'll dig out Pogo's little shirts and sweaters.  As he gets older, his hair is thinning and I imagine he can feel the cold more now.  He hasn't had any new sweaters for quite a while, so I guess a shopping trip is in order. 

Now it's time for me to wash the breakfast dishes and get ready to go out with Deanne.  It's Taser shopping time.  I think while we are at the gun shop, we should look into target shooting classes.  It's been a while since we've been practicing our shooting skills and we could both use a refresher course.

So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Homegrown Remedies

September 12, 2019

Good morning.  It's raining (a light rain)  The temperature is 64F degrees, but soon will drop to the mid fifties and stay there most all day.  We do need the rain, but I'm not ready for such low temps.  I guess it's time to dig out the snuggies and the sweats.

Yesterday, Pogo and I did not do very much.  Good Will came by and picked up four bags of stuff that I had put out the night before.  Actually, Good Will is really Big Brother Big Sister.  They need clothing and household items.  I put out a lot of both. 

Somehow, this did not make a big enough dent in my "clean out" project.  I guess I'll just have to start filling up a few more bags.  When you reach my age, there's lots of "stuff" collected to go through.  It's amazing how it all adds up. 

I had a request for some remedies for age spots on the hands.  These all came out of the book "Amazing Antidotes." 







 
I haven't tried any of these remedies myself.  So, if anyone tries these, do let me know how they work.  If anyone is looking for any other remedies from this book, let me know.
 
Tomorrow, Deanne and I are going to check out tazers.  They are legal, and a lot safer to carry than a gun.  What sort of license is needed to carry one of these?  Are there any classes involved to learn how to use them?  How much do they cost?  There's a lot to look into. 
 
Today, Audrey and hubby Mac are headed for Maryland and their daughter Andi's wedding.  I can't wait for some photos to share here.  The whole theme of the wedding is set in the Renaissance period.  Everyone will be dressed accordingly.  It should be really beautiful.
 
That's my news for today.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
 
Hugs, Edna B.

A Day For Memories

September 11, 2019

Good morning.  I confess, I did sleep in quite late today.  But I guess I needed it.  Today is a day for memories.  Thinking back to another day eighteen years ago, let's pray that Americans continue to stand together  and stay strong.  God Bless us. 

But there are other memories too.  As we get older, we realize just how quickly our babies grow up.  While we grow with them, the days and nights are long.  But as we age, we see that the days and night are really very short. 

A few days ago, I posted a photo of Jack on his first day in high school.  Today I have a photo of Lila (taken last week) on her first day in sixth grade.  I've inserted the photo of her brother on to the photo.


Deanne sent me this other photo of Jack and Lilah.  It was taken just a few years ago.  Well, maybe more than that, but to me it feels like only a couple years ago.  Time passes by so quickly that we need to hold on to all the joy that each precious day with our little ones brings.


Not so very long ago, Deanne had a beautiful bouncing two pound baby boy.  Today, he's a strapping tall fellow electrician who plays baseball on the side.  This past weekend his team won this year's championship.  Go Tigers!  (that's Kevin on the left holding the award)



Every now and then my heart gets a bit squishy and these beautiful memories pop into my mind.  At my age, I'm entitled.  I hope to fill my blog books with lots of these memories before my sun sets.

How about an update on Sassy.  The doctor called Deanne yesterday and said that all the tests came back and everything is good.  Just keep Sassy rested as much as possible for a few weeks and she should be fine.  Sassy girl, Pogo sends you a big lick and a woof woof.   We hope you are feeling better. 

It's noon time now and I have some blog reading to do.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.
