Let The Heat Wave Begin

January 8, 2018

Good morning.  And what a beautiful morning it is!  I have the inside door open and Pogo is so happy to be able to see what's going on outside.  Temps have gone up a bit, already up to 27F degrees, and working their way up to the mid thirties.  Woo Hoo!  And, for the next few days, it will just keep getting better.  Yes, yes, yes!

Today is my good friend Kyra's birthday.  Here's hoping that the temps in Holland are going up a bit too.  Kyra, I'm wishing you a beautiful day.  Happy Birthday my friend. May you be surrounded by love and happiness.

I guess today I should make up a grocery shopping list so that tomorrow I can go to the market and refill our food stock.  Yup, that's my first project for today.  Then I have a couple packages to get ready for mailing.  Pogo and I can make a trip to the Post Office in the next day or two.  We have a few other errands to take care of so we're really going to enjoy this burst of super weather. 

Yesterday, I worked for a while on my laptop making new quick pages.  This year, I'm going to try to make a birthstone color page for each month.  I've already got the first three months' pages done.  I'm also working on the little red baby hats.  Last night I made two more of them.  When I finish making a bunch of them, I'll take a photo to share here. 

This morning I went through my photo archives and pulled out a few of the beautiful plants that are by our Florida condo.  Actually, it's a timeshare, and the flora there is simply beautiful.  These are just a few of the beautiful blooms.

This next photo has a rather funny story.  From a distance, I thought it was a flowering shrub so I used the telephoto lens on my camera to take a photo of it.  When I got close to this pretty plant, I realized that it was a shrub with some of its leaves turning yellow.  Ah well, it's still pretty.

Just looking at these photos makes today feel even warmer.  Pogo and I look forward to our vacation every year.  It's two weeks to bask in the sunshine and warm temperatures, and going to flea markets. 

This year, I think I'm going to pack super light, and buy some new clothes while I'm there.  Now that will be a treat!   I don't buy clothes for myself very often, and my wardrobe is getting to look really shabby.  Maybe I can pick up a few cute new outfits for Pogo too. 

There are dishes in the sink calling to me, so I guess it's time for me to get busy around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

The photos of the plants are really pretty even the shrub looks good, glad the weathers warmed up a bit for you enjoy it while it lasts It feels bitter out today here but probable warmer than what you have, It will be nice to treat yourself to some new clothes while on holiday, spoil yourself for a change and Pogo of course, take care, x

Oh Edna, the photos of Florida are so pretty. Even the shrub. Oh yes yes yes to Florida. I think that you deserve new clothes. Your like me, wear them until they fall apart.

A Belated Birthday to Kyra. I will have to make a page for her and wish her a happy birthday but I cannot do it today. I am still sick and now what energy I did have is fleeing fast.

I hope that you managed to get your errands completed. I managed to get the dishes in the dishwasher and turn it on!

Hugs to you and Pogo. Have an awesome day my sweet friend... xoxoxo... Cisco sends hugs and kisses....

Already a week ago that i had my birthday. Time really flies.
so happy for you you have some days with nice temperatures.
All that snow isn't making us very happy, isn;t it?
Gosh, have to catch up your blog for a whole week and then also have to post. Yesterday I just didn;t feel up to it. Think I had a bit of a cold or so, but today already is much better(today is monday, the 15th!)
Up to the next post. Forgive me if I don;t comment on all of them.
