Side-Tracked

January 15, 2021

Good morning.  You can't believe just how side-tracked I've been all morning.  I started typing this post, then remembered that I needed to send a message on my phone.  So I did that.  That made me think of something that I need to look for, so I did that.  Not finding the item that I want, I now go to Amazon to see if I can buy a new one.  This, of course, brings me to think of other things that I need to look up.  And so it goes........

Eventually I remember that I'm typing a post on my blog, so here I am.  If there's a medal given for being scatter brained, I've got a big one coming to me.  Not having any special purpose for the day just makes me even more scatter brained.  I'm a nuturer and I need to be taking care of someone or something.  It gives purpose to my days.

Yesterday was a day for making phone calls to straighten out bills.  A couple new bills came in that contained late fees and charges for late payments on them.  The were originally mailed out in plenty of time to arrive at their destinations on time.  However, these two companies insist that it took four weeks for them to receive these payments.

This cannot be my problem.  I cannot control the speed at which the Post Office works.  What I don't understand is how come I get the bill on time, but the return mail containing the payment takes several weeks to travel the same distance.  ?????  

Today I watched an ad on TV that was trying to convince folks that now is a good time to look for a new house or apartment.  It made me wonder how many of the folks seeing this ad will actually make a new move.  And how many of them will think to take their pets with them.  You know, when you leave your pet behind, they most often will wait right there hoping that you will come back for them.  Please take them with you.  They are family.  (next image borrowed from web)


Till next time, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

One Day At A Time

January 14, 2021

Good morning.  I want to thank everyone for your caring thoughts and wishes.  It means a great deal to me and is helping me to get through each day.  My Pogo was such a precious little bundle of happiness and joy.  His passing has left a huge hole in my heart.   I am so glad that I finally made a Pogo calendar.  I've wanted to do it for quite a while, and I'm just so glad that I finally did it.  

I'm still floundering about a bit.  It's going to take me a while to get back on track and I'm working on it.  I've been searching online for a mask that I might be able to wear long enough to keep a doctor appointment.  I found a couple and ordered them.  One just came and I'll try to use it for a little while each day to see how it works out.  

Yesterday, Deanne came for lunch and brought a spinach pizza with her.  Oh yum.  It didn't take us long to make short order of that pizza!  You know what's amazing?  If you buy a spinach pizza from ten different pizza shops, you'll get ten different versions of spinach pizza.  The ones with the most spinach on them taste the best.

On Tuesday afternoon, my "Ring" was chiming so I checked it.  Across the street, behind the houses and trees, the sun was starting to go down.  It was shining through trees and lighting up my porch with beautiful rays of light.  So I saved one of the photos that showed up on the "Ring."  


Once the sun went down, the sky was a beautiful coral color.  I took this photo with my cell phone.


After that, my "Ring" stopped working.  The battery died.  ????  I thought it was supposed to last quite a bit longer.  Ah well, thank goodness I bought an extra battery for it.  I took it out and plugged it in to charge.  Yesterday, before Deanne left, she switched the batteries for me.  

Today I'll leave you with a favorite recording by Willie Nelson.  It's called "It's Not Something You Get Over, But It's Something You Get Through."  He may be talking about people, but to me it's anyone or anything we love.


Till next time, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Rest In Peace, My Precious Pogo

January 11, 2021

Good afternoon.  I've put off typing this post as long as I can.  Last night, my precious Pogo died while I was holding him in my arms.  I miss him so.  






I'm taking a couple days off to wallow in my tears.  We've been leaning on each other for eight and a half years.  He was my best friend.  Rest in peace, my precious little man.  I'll see you soon.

Hugs, Edna B.

Counting Down Till Spring

January 10, 2021

Good morning.  Today is sunny and crispy.  Cold, that is.  But then it is Winter so this is normal.  Still, I'll be happier when Spring gets here with warmer temps.  Just 69 more days!  Woo Hoo!  

I haven't done very much lately.  A little crocheting, some letter writing and some internet research.  I had a dish cloth not quite finished.  While I was looking at it, contemplating finishing it, I found a mistake way back almost to the beginning.  So, I ripped it all out and made it over.  It's orange, it's beautiful, it's for me.

Now I can't wait for all the new yarns to get here.  I have enough scrubby yarn to make a few more dish cloths with the first four colors.  Strawberry, Orange, Ice Pop and Avocado.  This can keep me busy until the new yarn gets here.  

Does anyone know when Project Runway will be back on?  I looked it up an it said that it would be starting either in December 2020 or January 2021.  I can't find it listed anywhere.  Also, how about Heidi Klum's new program Making The Cut.  I can't find that listed anywhere either.   Any info about these two programs will be appreciated.

Before I leave to do some blog reading, let me share something that I borrowed from the web.  This is so true.  We can grumble all we want (talking about me!) but each new day is a gift to be cherished.

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

Hugs, Edna B.

The Ring

January 8, 2021

Good afternoon.  I'm getting a late start today.  I get started doing something, then I get side tracked.  My middle name should be "side tracked."  I think a lot of it lately is this "Ring" thing.  I'm finally getting used to the sound of it's ring, but it seems to ring all the time.  Sometimes it feels like I have the busiest yard in town.

When I hear the "ring" I turn my phone on, turn the "ring" on, then I press activate.  By now if there's anyone outside that should not be there, they've had plenty of time to get away.  This morning, one of the times that I turned it on there was a little bird outside on my hedge hopping around and chirping up a storm.  He was such a happy little fellow, I called him my mariachi bird.  He was out there twice this morning.

Every day, I try to catch the mailman on the "Ring" but so far I haven't had any luck.  It rings when he comes up to my porch, I turn on the phone and hurry to activate the "Ring."  When it comes on, there's no one outside by my porch.  As a matter of fact, the mailman has left my yard, gotten into his little truck and driven off.  Obviously I must be doing something wrong.  But what???

Here's a thought I borrowed from the web to share.  By the way, those smudges on the windows are called "nose art."  It's priceless.

Now I'm going to do some blog reading.  So, till Sunday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

A Visit To The Cardiologist

January 7, 2021

Good morning.  Yesterday I had a doctor appointment with a cardiologist.  The doctor's office was sending me to a different heart doctor than the one I saw last time.  Deanne and I were using the car's GPS system to find this new office.  Sadly, the GPS was not functioning very well and sent us all over creation.  Deanne finally found the doctor's office on her own.

I had been instructed to call the doctor's office when we arrived in the parking lot.  I did and was told I would get a call when they were ready for me to come inside the building.  My gut told me this wasn't going to go well because I cannot breathe with a mask on, and you could not go inside the building without a mask on.  

It ended up that if and when I found a mask that I could wear and breathe with, I could call and make a new appointment.  So much for the appointment.  I called my regular doctor's office to explain and they said to find a mask and keep the appointment. So when I find a mask that lets me breathe, I'll make an appointment with the heart doctor that I first saw.  

Here's something for you to ponder.  Are cucumbers vegetables, fruits or berries?  Cucumbers are "pepos" -  interestingly, pumpkins, zucchini, oranges, tangerines, lemons, limes, cantaloupes and watermelons are also pepos.  And they are berries, as they have one single ovary.  So, cucumbers are another kind of berry.  (information found on Google)

Before I go to read some blogs, here's a giggle for you.


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

Happy Birthday Jasmine

January 5, 2021

Good afternoon.    Today is Jazzy's birthday.  She's twenty one today.  Wow, how quickly those years flew by!  Jazzy, I'm wishing you a year filled with love and laughter, and health and happiness.  Happy Birthday, I love you.

My last missing Christmas box was delivered yesterday afternoon to Audrey.  I set up my Portal and got to watch them open their gifts.  This is what is so nice about the Portal.  Except for the "in person" hugs, I get to share everything with the kids.

The mailman brought me another yarn catalogue today.  Woo Hoo!  It sure doesn't take much to make me happy!  I could spend all day looking at all the pretty yarns.   

Did anyone make new years' resolutions this year?  I don't, as a rule.  But I did find his one on the web and borrowed it to share with you.  I know I can keep this one!

And, here's a giggle for you.

Now I'm off to do some blog reading.  So, till next time, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
