Today is 2-20-2020

February 20, 2020

Good morning.  Such an interesting date today!  Well, I'm in a better mood this morning.  Of course, I just got on this laptop.  But, I will try to keep my cool whenever the cursor jumps around in my typing. 

I want to thank everyone for their help and suggestions.  So far, I'm trying whatever I can.  For some reason, when I look things up on Google about Windows 10, their images don't match the ones on my laptop.  Is there more than one Windows 10?  Aye yi yi!

My grandson Kevin is coming by Friday after work to try to put the rest of my stuff into my little laptop.  I will ask him if he knows anything about the touch pad and how to disable it.  Meanwhile, I'll just deal with it. 

Folks, if I post tomorrow, it will be late.  Pogo's doctor appointment is early in the morning.  The temperatures are supposed to be colder, so I don't know how I'll be feeling when we get back home.  The cold makes it difficult for my breathing.  If the cold gives me a problem, I'll most likely go to bed for a while when we get home.

Yesterday I decided to work on my tax stuff some more.  Oh my, I had thought I was almost done with it.  As it turns out, there was still lots to do.  I spent quite a while on it before setting it aside.  I'll see about spending more time on it this afternoon. 

Meanwhile, I seem to have misplaced Pogo's new license tag.  If I don't find it today, I'll have to call Town Hall to see if I can get another one.  I don't know if they give out replacements, but I'll soon find out.

For Steve, I looked up your Borage plant and found this photo of the Borago Officinalis in bloom. I'm curious if this is what your plant will look like when it blooms.  It's not listed in my Herbal book, so I'm guessing it has no healing qualities.  But it sure is pretty.


Now it's time for me to get busy around here.  First let me share this giggle that I borrowed from the web.  It's always a great idea to start one's day with a smile. 


So, till tomorrow (I'll try) Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

February 19, 2020

Good morning.  Sad to say, I was halfway through typing this post, and the whole thing disappeared.  Poof!  Either there is some key on this keyboard that I must touch accidently that erases my words, or this laptop is jinxed.  It's been doing this for quite a while now and I find it extremely aggravating. 

Because of that, this will be a very short post.  I have a lot to do today.  I'm sorry for my grumpy mood now but this laptop is very annoying.  I'm thinking all my problems have to do with the touch pad.  I don't know how to turn it off, and it causes me a lot of grief when I'm typing.  When I get back from vacation, I'm going to take this laptop to the computer store and see if they can shut off the touch pad.

On that note, I'm off to do some more laundry.  So, till tomorrow Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

So Much Candy To Pick From

February 18, 2020

Good morning.  Tis gray outside today and the temperature is 33F degrees.  I just looked at my weather app and it doesn't look anything like the weather forecast on the TV this morning.  The forecast on my phone app is so depressing.  I guess I'll just have to stop looking at my phone app for a while. 

I got up early today, but I spent the morning so far paying bills.  Such a depressing way to start your day!  I had such big plans for yesterday, but alas, I did not follow through on them.  So, in a few minutes, I'm going to put the first load into the washing machine.  Hopefully, that will get me in the mood to do more chores. 

While looking around on FaceBook, I found this picture and borrowed it to share s here.  This really breaks my heart.  What is wrong with people?  It's damn cold outside and our animals belong indoors with us.  So please folks, if it's too cold outside for you then you know it's too cold for our animals.  Bring them in! 


I also found this next image and thought I would share it for all us cat lovers.  There's nothing quite like having a kitty or a doggy stretched out on your lap just looking for hugs and loves. 


Last evening I worked on the navy afghan for a little while, then I spent some time looking through the yarn catalogue to decide on the colors for my next afghans.  It's like putting a child in the middle of a penny candy store and telling him/her to pick out a few pieces of candy to last the week.  It's such a difficult decision to make. 

Needless to say, I did not make any final decisions.  There's just so much beautiful yarn to pick from.  What's a girl to do???  I guess maybe I'll have to make a trip to Joanne's Yarn shop and pick out some yarn to put in my suitcase.  I'll be wanting to work on something while I'm in Florida. 

Now I'm going to watch the rest of Perry Mason on TV before starting the laundry.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Happy President's Day

February 17, 2020

Good morning.  The sun is shining and the temperature is 35F degrees.  It may even get up to 40F degrees this afternoon.  I'm hoping that a batch of energy comes along with this sunshine.  I have so much to do these next two weeks. 

Today is President's Day.  It's a day to celebrate all past and present Presidents.  We also celebrate the birthdays of President Lincoln and President Washington. 

It looks like my friend Beth won't be joining Pogo and me in Florida.  She needs to have more surgery on her eye.  Flying may cause more problems for the health of her eyes.  It's going to be rather lonely without her there.  We do have a lot of fun.  Audrey will be joining me and Pogo for the second week.  I'm looking forward to spending the time with her. 

I borrowed a really cute cartoon from the web to share here.  I had to laugh because this is how it is when I try to give Pogo his meds. 


The only way to get something into Pogo's mouth is to hold his head still.  However, we can't do that because it stops him from breathing and he will turn blue.  So, I do the best I can and get as much of the medicine in him as I can.  Sometimes I do good, most times I don't.  Although I am getting better at putting drops into his eye.  (for the cataract)

One of these days, I'd like to make another photo doll.  Quite some time ago, I made a couple of these.  One for my granddaughter Jasmine and one for my great granddaughter Hailey.  Today I'll post the pattern in case anyone wants to try making one of these dolls.  If you do, please share a photo of the finished doll.  Have fun.



Now I'm going to watch the rest of Perry Mason before getting started on today's chores.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Another Rising Star

February 16, 2020

Good morning.  It's gray outside, but my weather app says the sun will come out and temps will warm up to the high thirties.  Hang in there, Spring is only 32 more days away.

A reader commented that I should have posted a "today" photo of Kevin along with the cupid photo of him.  Beatrice, you are absolutely right!  I thought of it afterward, but I had already shut off my laptop.  So I've updated the cupid photo.  (He's an electrician busy at work on a building in Boston.)


Well, we have another rising star in our family.  My great granddaughter Lilah loves the stage, and performed in a show last evening.  (and today)  This is one of the posters that the kids made.


This is Lilah on the right, and the next photo is Lilah after the show.  We are all so very proud of our Lilah. 



I haven't really accomplished very much lately.  When it gets this cold, my energy is non-existent.  Hopefully, I can get a few things done today.  There's so little time left before Pogo and I leave for Florida, and so much to do. 

Last night, I worked on the lapghan until I ran out of yarn.  Actually, it is long enough to be done, but I wanted to put a few more rows on it.  So, I'll go online today and order a small skein.  I'd like to mail the lapghan off to my friend before I leave for Florida.  I'm making this one for my friend Nani in Ohio.  I just hope she likes it.  It's the first one I've made with cotton yarn.

A while ago, I planted a light pink Amaryllis.  A few days ago, it blossomed.  Oh my, what a beauty it is!  It has six blossoms and is just gorgeous.


Now I think I'll refresh my cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Happy Valentine's Day

February 14, 2020

Good morning, and Happy Valentine's Day.  How about an adorable cupid to start your day off right?  Isn't he a cutie?  Yup, this is my grandson Kevin.  Imagine this two pound miracle growing up into a tall handsome fellow! 


I have to share a funny photo with you.  Deanne sent this to me last evening.  It's Sassy and Nutmeg.  They don't really get along very well with each other, but it is snack time.  According to Deanne, they are both greedy and will tolerate each other long enough to get their snacks. 


Yesterday, on her way to work, Deanne stopped by to bring me a bag of goodies and a gorgeous rose plant.  In the bag were two containers of green tea and some chocolate truffles.  Well, you know those truffles never lasted past supper time!  And that rose is beautiful.  I've never seen one this color. 


Isn't this beautiful?  Let's hope I can keep it alive until it's warm enough to put it outside.  Alas, my green thumb done died a long time ago. 

Today Pogo and I are going to enjoy a quiet day.  The weatherman says that tonight is going to be the coldest night of the year so far, and it will be cold for a while.  I think we'll be spending a lot of time under the big orange comforter till the deep freeze is over. 

I think I'll cook up a pot of pasta.  Lately, Pogo has taken to wanting a bit of pasta on his plate of doggy food, and I have a hankering for some pasta too.  Hmm, just talking about it is making me hungry.

Well, that's my news for this morning.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

I'm Enjoying The Re-Runs

February 13, 2020

Good morning.  Today is gray and wet, and the temperature is 35F degrees.  It's a great day to watch TV.   I just finished watching Matlock, and next is In The Heat Of The Night.  When these programs were originally aired on TV, I was usually too busy to have time to watch them.  So I'm really enjoying them now. 

Yesterday was another lost day.  I think my salt intake may have been a bit too low.  When it is, I get to feeling a bit disoriented.  I resolve the problem by eating something with normal salt content and staying off my feet.  It always works. 

Today, Deanne, Eddie and Kevin are all sick with colds.  I can't wait for this winter to be over.  It seems that everyone around me is sick.  Gosh, with all these new viruses, it's getting harder and harder to not get sick. 

It's time for something lighter, and fun.  I borrowed this gem from the internet.  Gosh, there is so much truth in it!  hahahahaha.


Tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  Do you have someone special that you'd like to have for your Valentine?  If not, here's something I found on the web. 


Do you have a neighbor who is lonely?  How about dropping by to see them for a little visit?  That's better than a gift.  How about making a home-made valentine to bring to that person?  You'd be surprised to see how much a little bit of your time can change a person's whole outlook on life.  Try it, you'll like it!

I'm off now to do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
