Can't Wait For Winter To Be Over

February 19, 2019

Good morning.  It's sunny and cold here.  The weather app on my phone isn't working so I don't know just how cold it is.  I'm not sure why the darn thing stopped working, and I've tried everything I can think of to fix it.  Nothing has worked.  I guess my next step will be to unstill it, wait a bit, then re-install it.

Sleep was patchy last night so I slept as late as I dared this morning.  I finally got up to give Pogo his medicine and make us breakfast.  Now that his little belly is full, Pogo is sleeping soundly on the sofa.  I'm glad to see his normal appetite coming back.  It was off for a couple days after his doctor appointment and grooming. 

This afternoon Pogo has to have a medicated bath.  After lunch, I'll turn on the little heater and keep it near the sofa so that he doesn't catch a cold.  I would hate for him to get sick this close to vacation time. 

Gosh, I'm running out of time to get everything done before we leave for Florida.  Too bad there isn't a magic energy potion that I could take to keep me moving long enough to finish everything.  The older I get, the more I need that potion. 

I need to go to the Post Office to mail a box but if I go out I won't get to do anything here.  Maybe Joe will go for me later today.  I'll ask him when he gets home.  He is going with me to BJ's later this week to buy some new mattresses.  I have to replace one, and I'll get two more to put upstairs in the storeroom for future use.

I just turned on the Weather Channel.  It says that the temp is 23F degrees, and may get up to the low thirties later today.  I hope we can get all the yucky weather out of the way before Pogo and I have to board that plane.  I don't like delays at the airport. 

The news about this year's Flu season is not good news.  About 80,000 people died during the 2017-2018 Flu season.  I'll repeat myself -- PLEASE GET YOUR FLU SHOT.  Please don't be a statistic from this Flu season.  If you do catch the flu, stay home away from other people.  Don't be spreading your germs around.

Today I have a couple more coloring pages from Dover Publications.  Relax and have some fun with them.

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before I get started doing things around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

If you find that magic energy potion let me know. I'll get some too. Hope your weather gets better. It's pretty nice here today.
