Warm Temps Coming For The Weekend

January 26, 2018

Good morning.  The sun is shining and the temperature is 27F degrees.  Later today, we'll get up to around 33F degrees.  BUT, tomorrow and the next day should each hit 50F degrees.  Woo Hoo!  Pogo and I will definitely have to get out and do a few errands and enjoy those warm temps.

Today I got an email from Best Buy, giving me a coupon code for $20 to spend at Shutterfly.  Oh boy, I guess I'll have to see about making a book.  Now I just have to decide on which photos to use in the book.  Hmmm, shall I use photos of Pogo?  Or Pogo?  Or maybe Pogo?  Gosh, it's so hard to decide sometimes.  hahahaha.

This morning, I've been watching a game show on TV, and one of the questions was "How old is toilet paper?"  Of course, now I had to go look this up on Google.  My goodness, such a lot of information on the history of toilet paper.  Here's the answer to the question.

"Joseph Gayetty is widely credited with being the inventor of modern commercially available toilet paper in the United States.  Gayetty's paper, first introduced in 1857, was available as late as the 1920's.  Gayetty's Medicated Paper was sold in packages of flat sheets, watermarked with the inventor's name."  (info from Wikepidia)

Now, aren't you glad I looked it up?  I love learning.  A day should never go by without learning something new.  Even just a little tidbit like toilet paper's history.  Learning is so good for the brain and the soul.

Yesterday, I also went online checking out some more children's crochet patterns and found another cute poncho pattern.  I'm not sure which project I'll work on in Florida, but at least I have lots to pick from.  Here's the photo of the new pattern.  It has sizes from toddlers to bigger kids.

Goodness, I just looked at my calendar and Florida is less than five weeks away.  Oh boy, I guess now I have to buckle down and get lots of things done.  No more putting it off till tomorrow.  I have entered the Crunch Zone.  First on my list is to mail off the little red hats.  Then on to gathering all my tax stuff into one folder.  That should use up at least half of the time left.  Woo Hoo!

Before I leave today, let me share this adorable little sign that I found on the web.  I had to giggle because it is definitely me. 

Now I'm going to finish my coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

I love the ponchos! They are adorable. They are too cute. Great idea about the housework sentiment. Sometimes my house looks like there has been a struggle! And what a great deal from Best Buy. I have a Shutter Fly account and I love it. I save all of my scrap pages and photos there. If you join you can get special deals on Shutter Fly photobooks. They actually have sales up to 50% off.
Yay to the warmer temps. It was in the 60's here today. It was nice to get out and walk a bit. Have a super evening. You and Pogo have fun shopping tomorrow...!

Great to have some days with some higher temperatures. Today is such a day. Well, not really warm, but around 9 C and even a little sunshine(for as long as it lasts).
Lovely you were able to buy a harddisk for your stuff at a good prize.
Oh and discount on photobooks, yeah that sounds wonderful. yes, hard choice to decide if it will be about Pogo or Pogo?? or may be some of the family in between. Hard decisions.
Last few years I have a folder where I put all the papers into that i need for the tax as soon as they arrive. It saves a lot of searching time and stress. I am still waiting for some last ones and then I can copy them and send them away.

Stay away if you can from nasty flue bugs and such!
Have a wonderful day,
