Winter Blues

November 18, 2019

Good morning.  Tis wet and gray here today.  The temperature is 37 F degrees and probably won't get much higher today.  The rain isn't supposed to stop until shortly before noon tomorrow.  According to my phone app, which of course isn't usually the most accurate.  So we shall see.

Yesterday turned out to be quite the lazy day for Pogo and me.  We napped and watched TV.  Today though, it's back to "a project a day" for me.  It doesn't matter what the project is as long as I do one.  I'm trying to keep myself active and busy as much as I possibly can.  At least during the cold weather where I don't get out so often.

I keep trying to get back to my crocheting, but for some reason it just isn't as much fun at the moment.  I don't really understand this.  Maybe it's because these last afghans are taking so long to finish?  I don't usually like projects that take forever to finish.  Of course, if I worked on them more often, they wouldn't take so long to finish. 

Maybe this is just the winter/cold weather blues.  It seems to happen every year right about now.  Do any of you ever have this problem?  I just looked this up on Google and it seems to be a common ailment this time of year. 

It's known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).  I copied a lot of printed material on this subject, but it's too long to print here.  If anyone is interested, send me a request by email and I'll send it to you.  (email:  dezuray@comcast.net)

A lot of it can be helped with vitamins C and D, and keeping busy with different projects.  Today I'll check my vitamin stash to see what, if anything, I'm missing.  Then I'll place an order on Amazon. 

Today I have a Dover coloring page for you.  Coloring is very soothing and relaxing and could possible help with the winter doldrums. 


Now I'm going to refresh my cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading before I pick a project for today.  Before I go, let me share this picture that I borrowed from the web.  This topic is near and dear to my heart.  Even if you can't adopt or foster a doggie, maybe you could visit a shelter once in a while just to visit and play with the doggies there?


So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I hate to see people with dogs and be abusive toward them. Abuse of any animal doesn't do well with me nor my son. We love our animals. Milo make me smile when I sit and cuddle with him and know he was once abused but now he is very happy. Babs weren't treated too good but I got her not too many months after her birth. Milo was in bad condition by the time I took him in. Oh I forgot to tell you, one night last week there was a little white dog at my door barking trying to come in at midnight. I tried running it away because it was too late to bring in a stranger nor did I know if it had all the shots to keep from making mine sick. I told my sister if I didn't have 3 already, that little cutie would have been mine but I was assuming it came from someone close by. I haven't seen it again but I know I've heard a dog barking next door. I would have kept it until the next day if I hadn't been afraid it hadn't had those annual shots and flea treatments. I would have tried to find the owner because I know that would be like losing a child and very devastating. I hope there's more than us loving those animals and wishing the best for them. Have a beautiful and healthy day...you and Pogo.

Mrs. Edna, I came over to tell you I am giving up doing comments on all blogs. It's nothing you have done nor anyone on a blog written by them. You have no good ass people commenting on the blogger's comment and coming after the person who made the comment. I am very angry right now, and this bitch abbott is still coming after me because of my LTC. if I knew her and was close by, I would set foot in her ass. So I've decided not to communicate with others. I will send you an email every now and then but if you don't see my comments, this is why.

NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING PETS AND LOVING THEM. ALSO, WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE FACT THEY WILL NOT LIVE FOREVER JUST LIKE HUMANS.I HAVE BEEN THROUGH IT BUT THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THE END OF MY HUSBAND BACK THEN. DO YOU REMEMBER SUZANNE THAT HAD A BLOG COLORADO LADY? SHE LOST TWO OF HERS NOT FOR APART. HOWEVER, THE LAST ONE,I AM NOT SURE IF SHE WOULD GRIEVE THAT MUCH OVER A HUMAN. SHE EVEN HAD TATTOO OF IT PUT ON HER ARM. JUST ENJOY YOURS WHILE YOU CAN.

Oh my goodness the thought of not having a fur baby is hard. I know that when I lost my Cisco I thought that was the end of me and now I am Blessed with Olly, Foxy and Stormy and even tho technically they are not all mine they are because they are in my life and in my arms several times a day. Foxy is really mine now.

Now I am going over to your next blog. xxx
