2 Degrees? Are You Kidding??

December 29, 2017

Good morning.  Well, I woke up this morning at a little before eight o'clock and the temperature (outside) was only 2F degrees.  That means I just have to go back under the blankets until it warms up a bit more. 

It's three hours later now and the temperature has climbed up to 7F degrees.  Woo Hoo!  Obviously Pogo and I will not be going outside today or probably anytime soon.  I just phoned the hospital (and left a message for their pharmacist) to see if they could phone in a prescription for Pogo.  I do believe he has ear mites.  I'm not sure where he picked this up, but he keeps scratching and I just want to help clear it up.

My little guy finally ate something last night.  I gave him hamburg and he wasn't very interested.  So I put some of my spaghetti on his plate and cut it all up and mixed it in with his hamburg.  He licked his plate clean and asked for seconds.  This morning he had another plate of it for breakfast. 

This morning, I've been watching the reality show "Chrisley Knows Best" on TV.  You know, I'm not really into reality shows but this one really is quite entertaining.  I absolutely love the grandmother.  She definitely keeps me smiling. 

Today I have a few photos to share .  This first one is Pogo putting his new little yellow lamb in its place.  The little lamb just wants to snuggle, but Pogo is letting it know that these are his things and not to get too chummy with them.  Well, at least that's what it looks like.

Next is a photo of the new walking, barking doggie that dwarf Mike gave to Pogo.  Hmmm, Pogo hasn't decided yet what he thinks of his new friend.

Next is this beautiful hand embroidered towel that my friend Mary Ann sent to me.  The dog is a Chinese Crested, which is what my Tootsie was, except that she was born with hair.  The hand work is just gorgeous.  I love it.  Thank you Mary Ann.

This last photo is a bird feeder that my friend Kyra sent to me.  You can put some seeds on the saucer, and then hang a treat ball from inside the upside down cup.  Now I can't wait for Spring to hang this up in the garden near my porch. Kyra, I love it.  Thank you.

When I first started typing this post, dwarf Helen came to ask if I wanted her to go out and start my car.  Well, yes I certainly do.  Thank you so much Helen.  And then just a few minutes ago, she went out to shut it off and bring back my key.  Yeah, I know, I'm spoiled, but I love it. 

Yesterday, daughter Deanne stopped by the store and brought me a few staples.  Bread, milk and lettuce.  That's about all I needed.  The larder is full, so Pogo and I can ride out these wicked cold temperatures.  At least, that's our plan.

Well, now I think I need to find my way to the kitchen and wash the dishes that are waiting for me in the sink.  There are two things that I can do that actually look like I did something.  That is to wash the dishes and to do the laundry.  When I finish the dishes, I think I'll do a load of laundry too.  After that, it's playtime for Pogo and me. 

I'm off now, so till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend. 

Hugs, Edna B.

It is 9*F. here and that is just too cold! I am going to make some cookies so I can have the oven on and keep warm. Pogo is so cute with his little yellow lamb. That is so nice of Helen and Deanne to help you out. I'm going to go do dishes and wash too. You are right, that's the only thing I keep up on and it does make you feel as if you have accomplished something.

Hi Edna,
2 degrees is terribly cold and going up to 7 wasn't much of a help but a bit I suppose. It is supposed to get bad here starting tomorrow afternoon. I read a special statement that said we can have drizzle and ice all the way into Wednesday and Karyn and I are hoping that her plane doesn't get stuck in Dallas. She is going to call the airlines before she leaves for the airport to see if they have any delays. We are not equipped for bad weather anymore. Use to be that we would have ice and snow 3 or 4 times a year, now it is once every 3 or 4 years.

I love the photo of Pogo and his toy and Mary Ann did an awesome job on the tea towel. Way to pretty to use it. I love the embroidery. It is just beautiful. Oh and the bird feeder is awesome. I seen a wind chime with that design. The chimes were forks, spoons and knives. Amazing at such cute things these days.

Going to work on my blog so I will catch you later... Hugs, Beth and Cisco

Opps! I thought Pogo was a Chinese Crested with hair! Sorry my dog knowledge doesn't go far beyond Samoyed and Border Collies! I have had a limited education! I see you survived your snow storm ( more snow than Wisconsin). The cold weather returned to us but not as bad as the 2 weeks of nighttime temps with wind chills from -30 to -45 below zero! Definitely not hard to stay in. We had 2 days above freezing but back to minus temps tonight. Enjoy...remember Florida is not to far away!
