Already Picking Our Projects For Next Year

December 30, 2018

Good morning.  Just today and tomorrow left to do something in this year of 2018.  So, what will you be doing to see the year out?  Well, Pogo and I will be taking it easy.  We'll watch a lot of the festivities on TV.  No messing with the cold or whatever weather comes our way. 

One thing I will be doing away with is watching the Morning News and the Weekend Express news on HLN.  I used to enjoy this news station, but I am so tired of the negative political slurs and slants that they manage to fit into every newscast.   It's a real shame that our news broadcasters and newspapers can no longer report just the news without shoving their personal political views down our throats. 

This morning I'm watching JTV (Jewelry Television) Jewel School.  They sell supplies for making jewelry and teach you different ways to make it.  And yup, they talked me into buying something today, some heavy duty memory wire.  Hmmm, this could be the beginning of a fun new project for next year.  In my mind, I am already envisioning some finished projects. 

Oh dear.  I just picked up one of my supply catalogues to see if they might have some beads that I will be needing and stumbled upon another wicked cute project that I will definitely have to make for a gift for next year. 

Remember the new gutters that Cliff put up for me just recently?  Well, they really do help but the rain found a way to run down between the gutter and the house in some spots.  Last week Cliff came by to put some sealer between the gutters and the house to prevent this.  We just had a lot of rain and I forgot to look to see if it works.  I'll be watching when the next rain comes. 

Meanwhile, here is one of the photos that I took of the rain "leaks" before Cliff put the sealer on.  Nope, those are not little silver balls hanging from silver threads.  Those are rain drops!  Every now and then I get lucky and get a really fun photo like this one.

Yesterday was another "photo op" day.  Our friendly neighborhood turkeys came by to snack on our birdfood.  They really are fun to watch, and yesterday they were very talkative.  Here are a couple photos that I took.

It was difficult taking the photos because these birds never stopped moving.  Isn't nature just awesome??  I love looking out into my yard and seeing these beautiful birds.

Now I think I'm going to refresh my cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh My those rain drops are just awesome. They really do look like little balls hanging from silver threads.

It is turkey season. The photos are wonderful. Patsy sent me a couple of pictures that she took of turkeys a few days ago when they stopped at a rest stop to use the rest room on their way home from San Diego. They are nice birds and very talkative.

I am going over to work on my blog. Hopefully today I will get a chance to call you. xxx Beth

I am fed up with all the crap. dictatorship, immigrant children dying and it's nothing but mess. I am thinking about getting unplugged from the internet. I stopped doing social media and the television shows I mostly watch are the old western shows that came on back in the day. They are selling your phone number, email address and you name it. It's just stress but you have to back it down and depend on God. Man is gone crazy. I doesn't have cable, so I can't get CNN. I do watch our local news and the world news and it's getting depressing. too many children have gotten shot and killed here during this holiday season. It is depressing. I am thinking about getting rid of email, internet, telephone or anything except an emergency phone. (lol) Going back to living in the 50's. Have a good night.
