Time, It Passes So Quiickly And Is So Precious

October 18, 2019

Good morning.  The temperature today is 51F degrees.  The sun keeps peeking out from behind the clouds and temps might get up into the mid to high fifties.  The colder temps are sneaking in ever so quickly. 

I got a late start this morning.  I just did not want to come out from beneath my warm covers.  I guess Pogo didn't either because he was still asleep when I got up.  We are both sun bunnies. 

Daughter Audrey is coming to visit for a week in just one more week.  Woo Hoo!  I only get to see her once or twice a year and I'm really looking forward to our time together.  She's going to help me straighten out my computer room.  It used to be the computer room, but over time it became a place to put everything else.

Last night, a mayoral debate was held at our local community college.  Jasmine was on the panel of speakers who would be asking the candidates questions.  Here are some of the shots from the debate.  (The newspaper photographer is Marc Vasconcellos)  I downloaded these photos from the Enterprise website.  This first image is the poster for the debate.


 This is the panel from left to right:  Mark Linde, Ed Cabellon, Marc Larocque and Jasmine.

The mayoral candidates, left to right: Robert Sullivan and Jimmy Pereira.


Deanne and Eddie attended this debate meeting, but I haven't had a chance to find out what they thought about the candidates and how the meeting went.  I imaging it was quite interesting.  I will be interested to see how the November election turns out.

Jasmine is involved in a lot of the happenings at the college and in the community.  I'm not sure but I do believe she will be majoring in Political Science when she transfers next year to the next college.  I had so hoped to see her on Broadway, but I guess it won't be happening.  Boo Hoo.

Where has all the time gone?  Our little girl grew up right under our noses!  First she was holding on to Papa's knees for support to stand up, then she was twirling around the kitchen in her princess dresses.  Next came the saxophone lessons, and all the frightful Halloween costumes that she made.  Besides excelling in school, she entertained us all on the stage. 

She still entertains us on stage, attends college, has a job at Old Navy, is an active member of Phi Theta Kappa and participates in everything else that comes along.  Has it really been so many years that I can't imagine them slipping by me so quickly?

I did start a bag yesterday for the Good Will but I did not finish it.  That will be today's project.  And, hopefully, I can make that two bags.  We'll see.  Well, that's my news for today.  Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  So till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Jasmine the politician. I thought she would be the movie star, but then she can be both. There's a few stars became politicians including the President. (Reagan) That is so wonderful what she is doing because there's not too many people in general with the energy and the spunk that she has. Keep up the good work. She is determine to do great things.

It's cool here in the mornings but mid day is rather hot again. I do appreciate the little coolness that we are having. It's been so hot here until any coolness will be appreciated. (lol) I didn't want to get out of bed either and I did get back in and slept until around 11 and got up and went to the bank. I hate to get out of bed every day. (lol) I do have to get up and do things around the house and then back to bed.

My doctor called on Thursday and told me if I feel sick, I need to get to the emergency room. She said my lab work wasn't good. I was scared and I did call her back to see if she was looking at the previous labs or the one I did in the morning. She convinced me that I am not going to die this weekend. I am not feeling any of the symptons she said. I am feeling fine. I did go online and it did state that those test will be rather high when someone has an autoimmune disease like mine. So I started feeling better about what she said. I am not having any of those problems she said would happen. I have stopped worrying too much about my illness because there's no cure and I need to stay sane. Worrying is not good for anyone to do. I hope you and Pogo have a healthy day.

I've kind of seen Jasmine growing up too(from a distance, of course), but it is amazing how quick time passes and hos quick seet kids turn into young adults with a LOT of energy!!
May be she will do Political Science, but on the side also keeps on performing, and who knows what future will bring?
It is going towards winter time, and so it is often so nice to stay under the warm covers for a whbile longer LOL!
It will be fantastic when Audrey will be visiting, I can imagine that you hardly can wait till this week is over, so she will be there!
Take care and save ALL your ebergy for the time Audrey will be there.
