TV Shopping Can Be Such Fun!

February 15, 2019

Good morning.  I posted very late yesterday, so I'm making up for it this morning.  Well, sort of.  I got up a while ago and played a while with Pogo.  Then I warmed up some Pork Lo Mein and Pork Fried Rice for our breakfast.  We're retired, so it's okay to eat the good stuff for breakfast. 

Goodness!  I just took a nice big gulp of my coffee and it went down the wrong pipe.  Oh my, cough, cough, cough.  Don't you just hate it when that happens?  It takes all the fun out of my coffee.  And all the coughing makes the nose runny.  Yuk, yuk, yuk!

I've been watching the Shop LC channel this morning and oh my goodness!  Today is "under $10 Friday" and some of the jewelry they've been showing is just awesome.  Everything featured is set in sterling silver.  I'm not buying though because Pogo already spent all my money. 

At the doctor visit on Wednesday, Pogo had several tests to find out why his skin keeps getting something like Psoriasis all over.  I comb him every day, but it doesn't seem to help much.  Turns out he has a bacterial infection (like seborrhea).  So now he is taking one medication twice a day.  I dropped off another prescription for him at the Pharmacy.  We will be picking that one up later today.  Plus I went online to order a special shampoo for him.  It will arrive tomorrow and he will have to have two baths a week with it. 

His visit, including a medicine for $150 came to $495.  That was after my $54 discount!  The shampoo and second prescription came to another $60.  Add  to that a visit to the beauty salon yesterday and now you know why I'm able to resist buying all that gorgeous jewelry!  Ah, but my little guy is worth every penny.  The joy he gives me is priceless.

Today I have another recipe for you.  This one is for Bath bombs.  If you click on the picture, it will get bigger and easier to read.  Have some fun with it.

And here are some funny signs that I borrowed from web to share. 

Oh gosh.  Shop LC is showing their weekend programming.  Saturday (tomorrow) will be Turquoise, and Sunday will be Imperial Topaz.  You know I'll be watching Sunday for sure.  I love Imperial Topaz.  It's my birthstone and it's gorgeous.  Let's just hope they have something I can afford.  (I can dream, can't I?)

Before I get started on this beautiful new day, I have a chuckle that I found on the web.  I hope it starts your day with a smile.

Now I'm going to refresh my cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading before I start looking for some fun mischief to get into.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

I am off to bed now. I've had chemo today and that was about four hours. Queen had something like Pogo has and the doctor gave her some anti-biotic and an ointment. I had been using febreeze fabric fresher on their beds and I think that is what caused hers. The doctor didn't tell me, but after I had gotten her healed, I sprayed the beds again and she started to break out again. So I just wash a lot and do clean blankets. Yes they are worth every penny you spend on them. Have a great weekend and hopefully next week sometimes I will start feeling better after this chemo wear down.

I fell in love with the newspaper and fly joke.. Too funny!
Thanks for the bath bomb recipe. I am planning on making some of these and giving as gifts to my sisters this year and to a few of my favorite people around me. I think that it will make great stocking stuffers.

Off to work on my blog since I wasn't able to do it last night or this morning. Hugs to you and Pogo! Beth

My Daughter's pup has something similar to that. Hope Pogo gets all fixed up with that expensive doctor visit. I know what you mean, he is priceless and you will do anything to help him. I don't watch much of those shopping channels, no self-control:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

Hopefully the snow will disappear quickly again! here we have at the moment real nice weather.
Gosh, that's a lot of money you had to pay for Pogo's tests and medicins! Of course you do whatever you can for your pet, but I can imagine that it could be difficult for a lot of folks.
Oh those damned taxes, hey? Try to do them coming week, you will be soooooooo happy to have done it and not to have thinking about them again, believe me.
Glad i am not watching those shopping channels here. Lots of the things aren;t really usefull if you think well about it, and yeah, of course there are things you like to have and it is difficult then to resist, So best is not to watch them LOL!
Pogo looks so handsome again after his visit to the groomer. And of course the lady yorkies were nice to him!!!Hahaha.
Good, I have to go to my blog and post something there.
Take care of yourself,

(P.S. Good idea I think to do the program of shopping at Walmarkt and get it brought home by them or if somebody can pick the order up it is just as good. Saves you a lot of trouble and energy, and now you can just focus on the veggies and such that you like to pick up yourself fresh).
