Good morning. Goodness, I'm getting a late start today. The temperature is 44F degrees and it is overcast. No sunshine today. We should start getting rain late tonight and all day tomorrow.
I woke up hungry super early this morning. So I got up, made some breakfast for Pogo and me, then went back to bed for some more winks. Mornings like this make retirement a good thing.
Yesterday, I spent a few hours trying to locate all of my pdf blog book files. (When I order a blog book, I also purchase the pdf file.) Some time back, I lost a lot of files from my laptop and exterior hard drive. I managed to get a few of them back, but a lot of important files were still missing.
So I've been looking through my different media (external hard drives and thumb drives) hoping to find my missing book pdf files. Finally, I found them all. Now they are stored in three places. I do not want to lose them again.
The next thing I did was try to make my newest blog book. Unfortunately, after three tries, I contacted the company and found out that they were having a technical problem with their web site. They would get back to me as soon as they fixed this problem. Within an hour, all was fixed and I was able to upload and order my new book. And, I got to use a 40% off coupon. Woo Hoo! Here are the covers for my new book.
By the time I finished with these two projects, I did not feel like cooking the meat sauce. So, that will be the first thing I do today after I finish my blog reading. Plus I'm going to make a fresh cup of coffee because the first cup tasted so good.
Yesterday's mail started the New Year off with a bang. It brought two new property tax bills. Oh my, it seems like property has increased in value and the tax bills have gotten larger. And, I'll be blessed with these bills three more times this year. Well isn't that nice! I imagine the utility taxes went up too. Aye yi yi!
On a more fun note, I've decided to keep posting old photos from time to time. I'd like to have them in my blog books to leave for my family. So I'll start with this one. It's a favorite of mine. These are my four eldest children. From left to right, Gary Jr, Audrey, Kerri and Deanne. (1963)
Before I take my leave, let me share with you a fun story from a little book that I have. (The Bathroom Joke Book)
I'm off to do some blog reading now. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
