Fall Temps Are Slowly Taking Over

October 15, 2017

Good morning.  It's almost nine o'clock and Pogo has already had his turkey treat so he's a happy little boy.  Joe has just left to go the market to pick up a couple things that I need.  I really appreciate this because I have cleaning chores to do, and if I go out to the store I won't feel up to doing these chores when I get back. 

Today it's cloudy and gray outside, but it is still fairly warm.  Temps will be in the low seventies.  After today, temps will be cooling down a bit to the sixties.  Still, it is quite comfy and nice out. 

Gosh, weekends have a way of flying by really fast.  It's already Sunday, and I haven't done a whole lot.  Well, maybe I've done a few things, but nothing earth shattering.  Does it bother me?  No not really.  I'm at a time in my life where I mostly just do things that I want to do. 

When I was younger, it was important to me to have a shiny clean house.  Today it is not.  Now it's more important to me to keep my hands busy with crocheting, to enjoy my little doggie and to do things that I enjoy.  On Facebook, I see posts from a place that holds classes in watercolor painting.  It looks like such fun, and if it were close to here, I would probably join.  I love learning, and I think that's what keeps my mind young.

I have some fun photos to share today.  Years ago, Polaroid came out with some fun lenses to use with their camera.  I got a set and oh my, the fun I had with them.  One lens in particular would let you take two photos, one on top of the other.  This was one of my favorites.  Here are two photos that I took back then of my grandson, Bobby.  (Dee and Eddie's first child, my first grandchild.)

The first photo has always been a favorite of mine.  The minute Bobby was born, he stole a chunk of Papa's (my hubby) heart and was always the apple of his eye.  Papa loved all the kids as they came along, but Bobby was always very special to him.  Maybe because he was the first to come along.

Yesterday, I spent some time on the computer, playing with some of my Halloween scrap kits.  This is a favorite holiday of mine, and I love working on the quick pages.  Before I was done, I had two new QP's finished and uploaded.  I finally had to stop because Pogo was reminding me that I hadn't made him any supper yet.  Ooops, my bad!

Here's the next in my series of Halloween quick pages.  This one is a fun and happy time in the life of these two skeletons.  They are finally getting married and will spend eternity with each other.  Have fun with it.

Well, that's all my news for today.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.
