July is Fading Quickly

July 30, 2019

Good morning.  Are you noticing that we are almost at the end of July?  Yup, just today and tomorrow left.  How quickly the days are flying by.  The sun is shining, the temperature is 75F degrees with 83% humidity, and in a few hours temps will be up in the mid to high nineties.  We're in for another scorcher. 

My car needs to go in to the shop either today or tomorrow for a new safety sticker.  Otherwise, it has to come off the road.  In this state, we can't drive our cars without a current safety sticker.  I find it amazing that other states do not have this same rule.  It's mostly for the safety of the driver and any other occupants of the car. 

Obviously, there's not much new happening here.  I'm busy playing with my food numbers.  I have to say that putting this much effort into figuring out what foods I can have and how I can have them does take the edge off enjoying them.  By the time I've got it all figured out, I'm not all that hungry anymore. 

Maybe this is why I never decided to study foods and diets.  It's not really all that interesting.  At least not to me.  I guess I wasn't cut out to be a scientist.  Unless of course the topic is rocks and gemstones.  I just love rocks and gemstones. 

I have a big black rock that my Uncle Freddie gave to me years ago.  The story is that while he and his wife were traveling across the mid-western states in their mobile home, they had a huge black rock that they used as an extra brake.  They would place it behind one of the tires for extra braking support.  They found this huge rock somewhere in the desert. 

On one of their stops, they learned that their big black rock was actually Black Jade.  Of course, by now big chunks had been knocked off the rock so it was much smaller now.  Once they learned that the rock was actually Black Jade, they brought it inside the mobile home.  Later, Uncle Fred gave the rock to me.  One of these days, I'll have to take a photo of my beautiful big black rock and share it here. 

I found a couple really neat ideas on the web to share here.  The first one is a way to recycle and help the small birds at the same time.   What a great idea for a birdhouse!

Did you ever think that a cupcake paper liner could help keep flies and other bugs out of your drinks?  Well, neither did I!  This is so simple, yet super helpful.

Before I go, let me leave you with this interesting little story about Karma.  (borrowed from the web)

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Would you believe that these people are driving these cars with the safety inspection expired. It's mostly all states require you to have your car inspected each year but I've seen some cars driving around with expired stickers from 3 years or more. When they get caught they get ticketed. I don't get tickets so I do like you and do what is right.

(laughing) I am always letting my sister know when Karma is around on different people. Karma will stop you in your tracks. When people are evil, I always say yes, oneday Karma is going to strike them. And Karma do strike them. (lol)

We have a very hot day here. I was at the eye doctor at 6:30 this morning because I have to leave my little country town and go into the city of Houston and the traffic is so bad. You have to leave early because you never know how bad the traffic is going to be. Oh well, when they called my name it was only to tell me that the doctor had called and said she wouldn't be in today and she would have to send me another appointment. My eyes are better now and I don't care if she send me one or not. I was very angry but I do realize they are people too. I told them you all always want a 24 hour notice from us but you all don't always give us one. I was there sitting in her office. They let me sign in to tell me this. I came back home, fed my fur babies, carried them out for their potty break and went to bed. I am just waking up. (lol) Hope you and Pogo have a good day.
