Good morning. The temperature is 33F degrees, but may get up to 41F degrees later today. The sun keeps peeking in on us, so it's looking pretty nice outside. Except for the snow and ice on the ground.
It's almost eight o'clock and I've been up for hours. As long as I was awake, I thought I might print out a few things that need to be printed. Itinerary, patterns, that sort of thing. Well, I got one copy of a pattern printed, then I ran out of two colors. If any of the colors are running out, you can't print.
So I had to go on Amazon and order the two inks. Thank goodness they still carry the ink. My printer is quite old. One of these days I'll get a new one, but for now this one will do. It has served me well for quite some time. My only fault with it is that the ink is getting difficult to buy.
My laptop is getting old too, but I procrastinate because I'm not ready to have to learn Windows 10. I like things running the way they do now. Of course, I know that in the near future, I'll have no choice but to get a new one and learn how to use it.
I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. It's only one week till Pogo and I are off to Florida. Gosh, I have so much to do still. Ah well, what gets done, gets done. It will have to do. Opening night for the Spring production at the Paris Cabaret is the night before we leave. I'm thinking that I'd like to go that night. They will be doing "The King And I."
The beginning of next week I really must get over to the Town Hall to get Pogo's new license tag. Every year, I get his health travel letter and his license tag, and the airline so far has never asked to see them. The one year I don't have them will be the year they ask to see them.
I just realized that I haven't had my coffee or breakfast yet. Pogo had his breakfast hours ago, but I've been too busy to make mine. So I think I'll take a few minutes here to make a cup of coffee.
***I'm back. Oh my, that coffee tastes soooo good! I made a breakfast sandwich too. Yum! I'm thinking that today might be a productive day for me. I hope so because I have a mountain of things to get done today.
As soon as I woke up this morning, I put the SHOP LC program on. Today is "under $10 Friday" and they have been featuring quite a variety of products. It's not all jewelry. But some of the gemstone bead jewelry that they've shown is really beautiful. I'm waiting for them to bring on some dinosaur stuff. I have two little great granddaughters who love dinosaurs. One of them is also into trucks and cars too. So far, I haven't seen any of these either.
This weekend I want to pack a box with Pogo's pee pads and maybe some craft stuff. I'll mail this box probably around Wednesday or Thursday to myself in Florida. This will save me some room in my suitcase and my carryon.
Here's another pretty pattern I found on the web. This one is called Larksfoot Stitch pattern. You can find it on Naztazia.com.
Here's a couple more signs that I thought were rather funny. Especially the first one. It reminds me of Dean Martin's song "That's Amore."
Today I have to be careful about watching for the mailman. I have a batch of bills that need to go out in the mail, and I missed him yesterday. If I don't catch him today, I'll have to take these bills to the Post Office later today.
Now I think I want to do a bit of blog reading before I get started on my chores for today. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
