Good morning. My goodness, tis 41F degrees right now. Brrr. What happened to Fall? My weather app says that temps will get up to maybe the mid sixties later this afternoon before dropping back down. The sun is shining though, so that's a plus.
Well, I got one tiny package yesterday, but it was not to be a gift. It's a tiny rosebush that I ordered. It has three different colored roses in it (so it says) and it is tiny so I can plant it in a pot and keep it indoors till next Spring. I'll have to take a photo to show the different colors in this plant. I hope it makes it till Spring. I' m not doing so good with my goldfish plant.
I came across this image on the web and just had to download it. Oh my, the memories it brings!
Do you remember how we waited for this "Wish Book" every year? It would arrive, I think, around September or October. Once everyone was in bed and asleep at night, I would sit down with this wish book and make out my Christmas order. The next day I would send off my order and wait for it to be ready for pickup at the store.
Then I would wait again for everyone to be asleep at night, and wrap and tag everything and tuck it all away in a closet. Now all I had to do was make my payments every week and it would all be paid for before Christmas.
Sears and J.C. Penny were my go to catalogues. They had everything we needed and it was all priced reasonably so that we could afford it. All that changed many years later. Such a shame. I really miss these wonderful old catalogues. (and stores)
My daughter Audrey posted this on FaceBook, and of course I had to borrow it to share with you here.
What an awesome idea for some of the ladies in my riding group. Much as I would love to join in on the fun, my last attempts at riding on a motorized object did not turn out so good. I guess Pogo and I will have to stick with my trusty old broom. It has done us well all these years. I imagine Audrey will have one these new fangled rides. Who knows? Maybe if there is room on the back of it she'll let me and Pogo hop a ride with her? Hmmmm.
These last couple of days have been rather lazy for me. I did, however, do a few loads of laundry. That, plus cooking and washing some dishes, was the extent of my achievements. Yesterday I never even went on my laptop to check my email or do any blog reading. I'll have to do that when I finish typing this post.
This morning I did take some meat out of the freezer to thaw. Later I'll make some meat sauce for pasta. This last time that I did my grocery shopping, I made sure to pick up some frozen meals that contained at least a daily minimum of sodium. This way, I'll be sure to get my minimum every day.
All year long I've been being very good and getting rid of all the cardboard boxes that come in. Now that I need a few of them, I don't have them. Go figure! Ah well, it's too early to mail any of the holiday packages anyway so I'll manage. Starting next week though, I want to start packaging up whatever I can and set it aside till it is mailing time.
Do you buy extra bread and freeze it? I do, but I never thought to do this. I'll have to give it a try on the next loaf that I put in the freezer.
Before I get started on this lovely new day, let me post another "oldie but goodie" quick page. I hope you can use it.
Here is your download link:
Now I'm off to make a fresh cup of coffee and catch up on my blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
