Where, Oh Where, Is That January Thaw?

January 7, 2018

Good morning.  Brrrrrrr!  It's up to -4F degrees so far, and it might even get as high as 16F degrees later today.  Woo Hoo!  Starting tomorrow, we're supposed to get a mini heat wave with temps in the thirties for a few days.  Super!!  (if it really happens!)

Yesterday, Joe cleared away a bit more of the snow, but it's so cold that he can only do so much of it at a time.  Today he will clear some more of it and probably finish more of it tomorrow.  There's so much of it and it all needs to be put somewhere so that it is not in the way of our vehicles.  Plus the snow on the little roofs has to be cleared and the recycle barrels have to be dug out. 

Friday, Deanne sent me copies of photo layouts that she and Janice made for Jazzy.  They really are cute so I thought I'd share one of them here.  Can you tell how proud we all are of her?

Yesterday, dwarf Helen brought her new Amaryllis out to the kitchen so that we could all enjoy it.  It's a gorgeous orangey red color.  I'm thinking that tomorrow, I'll plant my new Amaryllis.  I can't wait to see what it looks like when it blooms.

I had to order a few colors of yarn that I need for a current project, so I'm hoping that it will arrive by the end of the week.  You would think that with all the yarn that I have now, that I would have what I need.  However, there are two colors that I need so I had to order them. 

Meanwhile, I've been working on the little red baby hats.  When I crochet, Pogo likes to lay on my lap.  Here's a photo I took of him the other night. 

Yesterday, I bought a few more scrap kits so that I can start filling up my quick page folder.  Afterwards, I sat at my laptop for a couple hours working on the new pages.  It feels good to be creative.  I'd like to make enough quick pages so that I don't run out of them while I'm in Florida. 

I just checked on my calendar, and Pogo and I go to Florida in just seven and a half weeks.  Woo Hoo!  Our goal is to stay well so that this year we can get out and do some fun things while we are there on vacation.  Knock on wood, so far so good.

Today I have a new quick page for you.  This one celebrates all this snow that we've had lately.  Have fun with it.

Here is your download link:

My little pogo is all curled up in a blanket next to me, so I think it's time for me to do a bit of morning blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.
