What's In A Name?

January 25, 2022

Good morning.  Tis gray and 33F degrees outside today.  We've had a dusting of snow.  Just enough to cover up any tracks in the old snow.  

Gosh, do you realize that February is only a week away?  Wouldn't it be nice if the warm temps were only a week away?  Oh goodness, what a happy thought that is!  Alas, it isn't so.

Perry Mason is on TV now, but this is one of the stories that starts out very confusing.  I can't seem to get the gist of it so I've turned it off and put on a game show.  Believe me, this doesn't happy very often.

The old game shows are really interesting and fun to watch.  It's a pity we don't still have lots of these games on TV.   I, for one, would watch more regular TV.  

It's slow getting back to my crocheting.  I'm just doing a few rows at a time.  My concentration isn't back to what it used to be.  I guess as we get older, things take longer to happen.

Here's an interesting map showing some funny named towns in England.

I also found a list of the symptoms for Omnicron, and thought it might be helpful.  If you do have these symptoms, do call your doctor.

In a little while, there will be a Law & Order marathon on TV, so I think I'll do a bit of blog reading first.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Designs In The Snow

January 24, 2022

Good morning.  It's sunny and 26F degrees.  We had a dusting of snow during the night.  Just enough to leave a thin layer of white everywhere.  

Gosh, I woke up really late this morning.  I dozed off around seven this morning, and just woke up a few minutes ago.  (three and a half hours)  I need to figure out how to put these hours of good sleep back into the nighttime.

The new food came yesterday.  The company is Sunbasket.  I had one of the meals last evening, and it was good.  Now I'm looking forward to tonight's meal.  

Did you know that Bees live less than forty days?  I didn't know this.  And yet, they are so very important to our lives.

    The mailman just delivered the mail.  After he drove out of the yard, I noticed his tire marks in the driveway.  I had to take a photo to share.  I've never seen tire patterns like this before.

Gosh, the morning is flying by so quickly.  Does that mean that Spring will come soon?  I have no more news so I think I'll enjoy a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a super day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Cold Days Are Soooo Long

January 23, 2022

Good morning.  Tis gray and 24F degrees outside today.  I think I'll just leave it out there.  Spring is just 56 days away.  56 loooooong days!   Even then, temps will still be on the cool side for a while.

In these old houses, the cold seems to seep in through the walls and floors.  Even though the heat is on, it's the cold that you feel.  At least in my case.  

I've begun to get back to my crocheting just a bit.  I managed a few rows yesterday.  Today I'll do a few more.  Well, at least that's the plan.  Maybe I'll read for a while.  Although lately I tend to fall asleep when I'm reading.  So maybe I'll save the book for after supper.

Deanne switched my cooked meals to a different company.  I should be getting my first order from them today.  I'm not sure what meals were ordered, so this should be interesting.  Tasty, at least.  

I've found a sweater pattern that looks easy to make and I think I just may try it.  I need to work on something other than blankets and afghans for a while.  Here's the pattern in case anyone else wants to try it.

That's my news for today.  Now I'm off to watch a bit of Law & Order.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.  

Hugs, Edna B.

Tis Wicked Nippy!

January 21, 2022

Good morning.  Tis cloudy outside and the temperature is 9F degrees.  Nip, nip, nippy!  We may even see some sunshine today.  

I have a question for you.  Have you all seen the TV commercial for NetSpend cards?  The woman in the ad is complaining about the bills she has at the end of each month.  The announcer says that she needs the NetSpend card.  It will give her access to her paycheck two days earlier each week.  And I guess this is supposed to alleviate her problems with her bills each month.  I haven't been able to figure out how this helps her problem, can you?  (It's just a debit card, not extra money.)

Today I'm hoping to get back to crocheting a bit. At least to put a couple rows on each project. Then perhaps I can try out a new pattern that I found recently.  Hmmm, sounds like I may be on the mend.  

The sun is shining now.  I hope that means that the temps will go up.  Now that would really be nice!  I just don't handle these cold temps very well.  

I think it's time for a hot cup of coffee, and maybe some blog reading.  So, till Sunday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous weekend.  \

Hugs, Edna B.

To Market, To Market

January 20, 2022

Good morning.  Tis 34F degrees and wet.  A good day to stay in and watch TV.  Right now Perry Mason is on.  After that will be Matlock.  Then, a Law & Order marathon.  See what I mean?  A great day to watch TV.

Today I tried to place a grocery order for delivery from WalMart.  However, they are not delivering until next Wednesday.  Hmmm, I wonder what that's all about!   I could order from the other market, Shaw's, but they are so expensive.  I usually only order sale items from them.

I'm thinking that today I really should do a bit of crocheting.  My projects are taking forever to finish because I haven't really been working on them very much.  Sad to say, I just haven't been in the mood to crochet.  My mind wants to, but my hands don't.  

Let me give you an update on Baby Cerys.  She's thriving now that she's home from the hospital.  She's such a happy baby.  

We don't know yet what name Mia and Jarrod have picked out for their baby due in February, but the one due in late March (Jeremy & Caitlin's) will be named Serena Melanie.  Such a pretty name.

I'm thinking that I should head to the kitchen now and see what's for lunch.  A hot cup of coffee would be nice too.  I haven't had one in a while.  Hmmm, and a ham and cheese sandwich sounds pretty good too.  

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

Hugs, Edna B.

Just A Short Note

January 18, 2022

Good morning.  Today we have light sunshine and 27F degrees.  By light, I mean that the sun isn't very bright.  Actually, it's barely shining at all.  And, it's rather breezy.

My cold lingers, and is very annoying.  Even though I nap, I'm still tired.  I have a doctor appointment in two weeks.  If my cold hasn't cleared up by then, maybe she can give me something to help get rid of it.  Up to now, I haven't been coughing.  But now the coughing has begun.  

Today will be more of watching TV and napping.  Every now and then, I do a row or two of crochet, but not as much as I'd like.  This cold makes it hard to concentrate.  

Did you know that Law & Order, Criminal Intent will be returning to regular TV?  Yup!  The end of February.  Awesome!  It will have a lot of the original cast members.  I think this is a first!

Does anyone need a good reason not to dust around the house?  Here's a super one!

I really don't have much news for today so I think I'll do some blog reading.  So, till Thursday, Y'all say safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Redundant TV Commercials

January 17, 2022

Good morning.  Tis wet and gray outside, and the temperature is 46F degrees.  Alas, these temps won't last very long.  It snowed during the night before switching over to rain.  

I'm getting lots of rest, and drinking my fluids, but this cold of mine doesn't seem to be going anywhere.  Sad to say, I don't feel like crocheting often.  My projects are going to take quite a while to get finished.  

Is anyone other than me getting tired of these "Medicare" TV commercials?  We are now in our third year of these commercials.  They are on all day and all night.  Every day.  Every night.  My understanding is that they are paid for by insurance companies.  Is this why our insurances are so costly?  

Last night, I read a couple chapters in my new book.  Were you aware that there were ten and twelve year old children fighting alongside our soldiers during the Civil War?  Such bravery is so awesome!  By the way, this book was just written last year.  2021.  

Here's an interesting item that I found on the web.   Xylitol is now being marketed as Birch Sugar, and is toxic to dogs.  Please read your labels before sharing foods with your pets.  And pass this information along to your family and friends.

I just watched a commercial on TV where they made a mistake.  The person talking pronounced a man's name as "Nickel."  It was spelled "Kinkle."  What happened to Quality Control?  

The morning is waning and I have things to do before Deanne gets here.  So, I shall take my leave now.  Till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
