Good morning. Goodness, the sun is shining and it is 47F degrees! According to the forecast, the temperature should hit 50 degrees by noon. Oh my, I can definitely handle this!! Tomorrow is also supposed to hit 50 degrees, but with some rain. I wonder if this is our January thaw?
There's not very much snow left anymore. Between the rain last evening and these warm temps, most all of the snow has melted. Oh be still my heart! It is soooo good to look out and see just a few puddles here and there.
Yesterday was one of those days where I was busy all day, but for the life of me I can't figure out what kept me so busy. I did a lot of little things, but nothing really earth shattering. The first thing I did was to catch up on some blog reading. Then I paid some bills and went crazy looking for a misplaced deposit slip. I finally called the bank to verify that the deposit actually was made.
I spent a little time gathering some materials that I will need for my taxes. I will have to start spending some serious time getting all these figures rounded up and written down. Groan, groan. Some of my time was spent on the web checking out plane fares and availability for the dates that I will be travelling.
As I was going from one task to another, the day was slipping by. I sent a text message to DIL Janet to ask if she was over her cold yet and was she coming by for supper. A little later, Janet called me to say yes, she was over her cold but she would not be coming by for supper. Yesterday was only Tuesday, and she comes over on Wednesdays. Hmmm, did I just lose a day? Or did I gain a day?
Now I had to change my plans about what to make for supper. In the evening, I washed the dishes, and spent some time on my laptop doing a couple jig saw puzzles. Before turning in for the night, I put a few more rows on the newest scarf. This one is the Flamingo color. Very pretty!
When I think back to how much I could accomplish in any given day when I was younger, I'm amazed at how I did it. I mean, think about it. Everything I did yesterday could probably have been done in just a couple of hours a few years ago. I'd have still had the whole day to do lots of other things.
Ah well, retirement does have its advantages. We can slow down our daily activities, and we have more time to stop along our way and smell the roses. It's a time to make peace with the dust bunnies. They will still be here long after we've gone to meet our maker.
Today I have a new quick page for you. This one shows our little snowboy having fun in the snow.
Here is your download link:
Now it's time to do a few more things around here so that Pogo and I can spend a little time out in the yard. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
