Gosh, Where Has All The Time Gone!!

March 14, 2018

Good morning.  My goodness!  It's 39F degrees here this morning.  Of course, it won't stay like  this for very long.  By noon, temps will up to around 71F degrees.  In all the years that I've been coming here (since the mid 80's) this is the coolest it has ever been during my two weeks here.  Mind you, I'm not complaining though.  The sun is shining and it is really pretty outside. 

Back home, the storm really left a wide path of misery everywhere.  We all got around eighteen inches of snow.  Not the soft stuff either.  The first foot of snow was the heavy wet stuff.  Here's a photo that Deanne sent me yesterday morning.  It will take a while to shovel out from this storm.

Yesterday, we went out to do a couple errands, and I was on the lookout for a cardboard box to use for sending a few things home.  I'd like to get this box in the mail either later today or tomorrow. So I guess I'll have a trial run at packing my suitcase today.  (so I can figure out what gets mailed in the box)

While we  were out, Beth picked up a couple plants at Orange World to take home with her.  She got a dwarf orange tree and a dwarf lime tree.  I hope they grow well because I'd love to see photos of them with fruit on them. 

Here's a couple photos I took while we were there. On the way out of the shop, Beth stopped to taste some of the fruit.  In the first photo, I've put a yellow arrow pointing to Beth.  The second photo is a close up, showing Beth with her new tote bag.

Another photo that Deanne sent to me yesterday was a sweet memory photo of Jazzy after a performance of 80's music at her elementary school.  Wowsie!  She gave the same type of performance seven years later at the Paris Cabaret.  I've put both of her photos together, and my goodness, our Jazzy girl has grown into quite an awesome young woman.

I'm not sure what we're up to today.  Beth goes home early Friday morning, so there's only a couple days left to have fun.  Pogo and I go home Sunday morning.  Gosh, where has the time gone?  It seems like our two weeks has just flown by!  I'm thinking that I could use a couple more weeks.  Hmmm, not possible, but a super idea!

Today I have a new quick page for you.  I've made  it rather plain so that you can add some of your own embellishments.  This one is for the fun photos that you will be taking on St. Patrick's Day this coming weekend.  Have fun with it.

Here's your download link:

Now I'm going to make another cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
