Oh What A Gorgeous Day!!

January 11, 2017

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.

Thank you for the adorable QP. I love it... I am going to have to sit down one day and do all of the pages that I have been wanting to do with some of your QP's. Now that I am not with all of those designers I have time to do what I want to. Except for today.
Today is the day that I see the dentist... Todays visit will not be too bad since it is a yearly exam and just x-rays.

I better get into the shower and get dressed. My ride will be here before I know it...

I love the pictures of Pogo and that white mound is just too cute. I know where he is.. all tucked in and snug as a bug in a rug as they say! I will talk to you soon... Love Beth

You need a small space heater for the porch so you can spend sometime out there on nicer days like today is turning out to be. I agree with Kyra and you should have Pogo's stroller in Florida. You probably could send it by UPS, I know that you can UPS luggage. Here in Michigan we are having weird weather. Woke up to snow on the ground yesterday ,today puddles cuz it rained a good part of the day yesterday with high winds last night. I hate looking for tax stuff! Every year I say I'm going to start a folder in January and put all the things necessary (medical and med receipts etc.) for taxes but somehow I never do. Enjoy your day Suzanne

I am late today reading your blog, because I just couldn;t get up in the morning. well, I didn;t sleep much during the night so probably that was the reason. and so gave myself a morning free and slept rather nice, then took a warm shower and then went out to do some grocerie shopping Wanted to have it done today, because tomorrow they expect real stormy weather, colder temps, so may be some snowfall(although that will mostly be more east in the country) then next week colder but dryer. Hmmm, the dryer part isn;t bad, but coldder ???? ay be it will be just for a few days Hope makes us live LOL!
Think, I will make some previews of some clusters Arlene sent me and perhaps play a little game and then it almost will be time to put dinner in the oven.
Have a wonderful day,
