Good morning. The sun keeps trying to poke its face out but the gray clouds are making it difficult. Temps will be in the high seventies today. A very comfy day indeed.
I'm working on gathering enough energy to go shopping for bird seed. We're running low, and I don't like to run out. Plus, it's been a while since Pogo has been out shopping and he is looking forward to seeing everybody at the store.
Audrey sent me a photo of her and her two grandchildren. They all were together over this past weekend, and everyone had a fabulous time. Awesome photo, Audrey.
Do you love macaroni and cheese? Well, it seems that a good portion of the world's population loves it. In fact, in Canada, Kraft's boxed mac and cheese is the unofficial national dish. Per capita, Canadians eat more of it than Americans do.
Another tasty fact: Thomas Jefferson tried macaroni in France and loved it so much that he imported a pasta machine and parmesan cheese from Italy. He served his version of "macaroni pie" at the White House in 1802, and his handwritten recipe for macaroni is at the Library of Congress.
Aren't you glad you popped in here today? I love passing all these little known facts on to everybody. Ever wonder why a book of maps is called an Atlas? It's because the earliest books of maps had a picture of Atlas holding the world on his back on the cover.
I found this adorable image on the web and just had to share it here. I just love how animals always take care of each other. We can learn a lot from our animals.
I just realized that today is Wednesday. Now I'm wondering where Tuesday went. Time seems to be slipping by me a bit too quickly some days. However, it does explain how I missed my Tuesday program on TV. Gee, and I was looking forward to watching them tonight.
I just got a message that the new gutters are going on next Wednesday. That means that the electric company will be here to shut off the power to the house for several hours. Hopefully, it will only be for three or four hours.
I've been watching the Weather Channel and it says that a large portion of the country is going to be having sweltering temperatures. Folks, please think of your animals. They can't survive any better in that heat than we can.
Also, before walking your dogs, test the ground with your bare skin. If it's too hot to keep your bare skin on the sidewalks and streets, then it is way too hot for the pads on your doggies feet. They will burn. Please take notice of this.
Now I'm going to get dressed and hopefully set out to do a bit of shopping with Pogo. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
