We're Off To The Park Today

April 24, 2018

Good morning.  Well, we did get our cable back yesterday afternoon.  I'm not sure why, but this happens more than it should.  Calling the cable company doesn't really do anything to change it.  Maybe they just keep interrupting our service to get us to sign up for a more expensive cable package.  It's not going to work with me.  If I have to, I'll sign up with a different company.  Not that I want to, but if I have to I will.

Yesterday was a rather sluggish day for me.  Thank goodness it's over.  I wanted to work on my porch, but I was just too tired.  Maybe later on today I can spend some time out there.  When I finish this post, Pogo and I are going to meet up with Deanne and two of my great grandbabies in the park.  This will be so much fun. 

I did take a photo yesterday of my second tissue dolly.  Gosh, she is soooo pretty!  When I finish the next one, I'll dig out the ribbons, etc, to finish up these dollies.

I started a green dolly dress, but I'm not happy with how the variegated yarn looks with it, so I'll have to look through my stash to see if I have another yarn that will look better.  I also need to order some dolly hair pins to use for holding the hats in place.  I guess the afghans can wait.  I'm having too much fun making these dollies.

Here's a recipe that I borrowed from the web.  I really had to laugh because it reminds me of so many of the "computer meals" that I've made in the past. 

For instance, to make wall paper paste you put on a pot of water to boil.  When it starts boiling, put in a pound of elbow macaroni.  Stir, and go back to what you were doing on the computer.  When the house starts filling up with smoke, your paste is done.  Have fun cleaning out the pan! 

Oh yeah, I'm guilty.  I've also made hamburgers, chicken and pork chops that could be used as ammunition to throw at an intruder.  Guaranteed to knock him out!  I've learned to stay off the computer or anything else that takes up my attention when I'm cooking.  The food tastes better, and the clean up is easier.

I found out last night that Pogo does not like meatloaf.  That's what we had for supper.  He only ate a little bit (out of sheer hunger I think) and walked away.  He likes his hamburger plain, not infused with other foods.  He likes it cooked all the way through, but not overcooked.  He will not eat meat that is pink or red.  He will eat some rice or green beans mixed into the hamburger on the plate.  Notice I said "mixed in" not "cooked with".  To him there is a big difference. 

I guess tonight, I'll have left over meatloaf, and I'll cook up some hamburgers for Pogo.  Between supper time and his late night snack, Pogo will eat one of the hamburgers, and the second one will be for tomorrow.  Tomorrow I'll make pasta and meat sauce, and put some this on the plate with his hamburger.  This will make him very happy. 

Now it's time for me to get dressed so that we can head over to the park soon.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I had to chuckle reading your post ...what a coincidence! We had meatloaf as well ;) Hope you had a nice time in the park. We have typical UK weather again...rain , rain and more rain. And yes, I also have a lot of experience with blackened chicken, chips (fries) and other burned food items :)

Very annoying when the cable isn;t working. Glad it was fixed rather soon.
Oh, I know all about food that didn;t looked as it was supposed to LOL! I too have to stay away from the computer when I have something on the stove or in the oven.
Even watching tv can be tricky!
Oh, you had neatloaf. Well, we had minced mewat, stirred together with chopped veggies, and some small potatoes and a bit of tomatoe sauce. So we had kind of the same food hahaha.
Hope it was a nice time in the park and glad you felt better from the back trouble.
Have a great day
