Gypsy And The Red Sox. Awesome!

October 28, 2018

Good morning.  Tis nippy, gray and wet again this morning.  There's been a bit of wind lately, and my yard looks as thought all the leaves in the neighborhood have been dumped here.  The wind even blew the rain and lots of leaves up onto my porch. 

So, what have I been up to these past couple of days?  Well, I did not go to renew my license.  I'm going to do that this week.  Probably tomorrow or Tuesday morning.  Instead, I worked on my new calendar and my Christmas cards.  By eleven o'clock Friday night, I was ready to order my calendars.  Woo Hoo! 

Then I started in on my card.  I usually make two or three (or more) different versions before settling on the one that I want.  This time I had five versions before I was happy with it.  Now I closed up my Photoshop program and settled in my lounge chair to watch the rest of the baseball game. 

Wow!  Who'd have thought I'd be up till 3:30 in the morning watching the same game?  Would you believe, they played eighteen innings before the Dodgers finally got the winning run.  What a game!  I felt so bad knowing that these players had to play again in less than twenty four hours. 

Saturday morning, I got started again on my card.  When it was ready, I uploaded it to the printing company, Vista Print.  Surprise, surprise, my card was just a teeny bit too big to fit properly.  I had to re-adjust the size several times before getting it right.  The staff at this company is really helpful, and the girl on the phone helped me to get my card fitting just right.  She even helped me to put my order in.  Now I just have to sit back and wait for the calendars and cards to come in the mail.

Now it was time for a wee bit of a nap.  Deanne and her friend Krissy and I were all going to watch Jazzy and the Starliners performing Gypsy again.  And we did.  Folks, it just keeps getting better every time I go to see it.  We had an awesome time and a wonderful dinner. 

Would you believe, there was even a wonderful young man standing outside in the rain with a large umbrella to walk folks from their cars to the door so they wouldn't get wet.  How awesome!  It really made one feel a bit like royalty.  Mmmmm!  It was the perfect touch to an awesome evening.

Once I got home and had a chance to cuddle with Pogo, I went looking for the baseball game on my TV.  I couldn't find it so I turned to Google on my phone to catch up with what the score was.  It was the bottom of the ninth inning and the Red Sox were ahead.  Then one, two, three outs later it was over.  The Red Sox won!  Woo Hoo!  Just one more game to win for the title!

So, with all this going on, guess what I did not do.  You guessed it.  I did not get to work on my quick pages.  For this I apologize, so I pulled out two of my favorites from three years ago.  I promise to make a couple new ones for later in the week.  Here are two of my favorite oldies.

Every now and then, someone comes up with a new product or invention that catches my eye.  I found this picture on the web and just had to share it.  It's a Twin Engine Broom.  Can you believe it?  Wow, I wonder how fast this thing goes.  When Pogo and I get together this week with my friends, I'll have to see what they all think of it. 

I've been watching the Pioneer Woman on TV this morning.  She's been making some super delicious desserts.  (and making me hungry!)  She has a food blog, so I think I'll try to look it up.  Her recipes seem easy enough, at least the ones she makes on TV.  I'll let you know what I find.

Now it's time for me to get a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh I watched every game but not ALL of the LONG one:) I love for the Series to go 7 games, just because I don't want it to be over... BUT CONGRATS to your Red Sox! They truly were the best team! I know you enjoyed the show, happy that you were able to go. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
