Spring Is Only Fifty One Days Away

January 28, 2018

Good morning.  Tis a lovely warm day, but of course we have to share the warm with the wetness of rain.  Well, why not.  I've noticed that during the winter season, a lot of our warm days are wet days.  Hmmm, food for thought?  Ah well, Spring is only fifty one days away.  Soon we'll have lots of nice days.

Yesterday, Pogo and I did not go out shopping.  We enjoyed just relaxing with the inside door open all day.  Pogo spent a lot of time curled up on the little rug in front of the door, just napping or watching the squirrels play.  We thought we might go out today instead.  We'll see how we feel about it later this morning. 

I did finish the little red baby hats a couple days ago, and stuffed them all into a big plastic baggie.  I seem to have lost my enthusiasm for them seeing as how they are not going to local hospitals, but to ones maybe in Boston instead.  Ah well, lesson learned.  Always check out a charity before jumping in head first.

I got a wonderful surprise in the mail a couple days ago.  My friend Mary Ann sent me a really pretty pattern for a girl's crocheted pullover.  I've never seen one like this, so I'm thinking that I'd like to try it.  I've never worked with bulky yarn though, so I may have to make a few adjustments to use a yarn that is not quite so bulky.  Thank you Mary Ann.  I'm looking forward to making this.

Yesterday, I ordered a refill for one of Pogo's flea medicines.  My little guy is very allergic to fleas so this is something we cannot run out of.  Next, I'll check to see which refills that I need for my meds.  I need to get all of this tended to before we go on vacation. 

These past few days some of my important tax papers have come in the mail.  I mostly now have to start adding up all the yearly expenses and income.  After that, I can set it all aside until it is time to see my accountant. 

I've just made up a "to do" list of things to get done this month.  Next I need to make up copies of our travel itinerary for a few people, complete with important phone numbers for "just in case."   Planning ahead is starting to get exciting now.  Just a few more weeks!!

Did I mention a couple weeks ago that Deanne got me an electric throw blanket?  Folks, it is soooo toasty!  I haven't had to plug it in though because it is quite warm by itself.  Sometimes it feels too warm and Pogo gets off of it and goes to his little sofa.  Thank you Deanne.  We are enjoying our new blanket.

Now I think I'll see about making some breakfast.  Pogo is giving me the "starving" look.  Not to worry.  This is one little guy who will never have to go hungry.  He has trained his mama well.

Before I go, how about a new quick page?  This is a fun one if you love chocolate like I do.

Here is your download link:

Now I'm off to feed my little guy and then do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Good Afternoon Edna,
Cisco and I have slept in a bit late this morning. I was on the phone with my sister for about an hour last night and Matthew took my clothes over to his house to wash and dry them. He did all of my bedding except for my pillow cases. For some reason I forgot to take them off the bed,

You have done a fantastic job on the baby hats. I am sorry that they are not going to the local hospitals. That is a shame, but all of the little ones that do receive them are very lucky to get them!

It usually does get warm ahead of a cold or wet front. It is the warm air pushing the front in with the rain. I really am glad that your getting some warmer weather. It was 68 here yesterday. It seems chilly here this morning.
Thank you for the QP... I do love Chocolate.... Have an awesome day. Hugs to you and Pogo! xxx Love, Beth and Cisco

Oh Edna! I've got find the right chocolate photo to go on that quick page! Of course I had to celebrate downloading it with a piece of chocolate from my candy jar. ;) Thank you!

The weather is insane this year. All of our snow is gone because we've had warmer days and lots of rain like you’ve had. We seem to of have a pattern since mid-December so of Cold-Snow-REALLYcold-Rain-Warmer-Brown-Repeat we’re on the third browning right now with more snow and a high below freezing scheduled for tomorrow, I am good and ready for my annual channeling Florida from your blog! LOL (Cold and brown both make me happily replay the wind in the palm trees video you sent me from one of your trips!)

The potential crochet projects from Friday and today all look great. Have fun creating!

Hugs, Nani
