Tis A Rainy Day In New England

November 24, 2019

Good morning.  Today is wet and gray.  Raining with temps getting up into the upper forties for most of the day.  The rain is supposed to let up around nine o'clock tonight.  Well, we do need the rain, so it's not all bad.  Tomorrow and the next day are supposed to be sunny and warmer.

Deanne came by on Friday and we got to do a few errands including a bit of grocery shopping.  I only meant to pick up a few items, but well, I got into it and bought quite a bit more than I had planned.  But that's okay because I won't have to go shopping again so soon. 

I've been getting lots of wonderful ideas about the different photo editing programs from everyone, so thank you.  As soon as I decide what I'll get for a small travel laptop, I'll be able to decide on the photo software.  I've been checking out all the small laptops (10 ")  on the web, and soon I'll have to make a couple phone calls because I have a few questions that were not answered in the different ads.

I really can't wait much longer to decide on this smaller laptop because soon it will be time to go to Florida and I take the little laptop with me.  Yup, it is time to start my countdown till vacation time.  Pogo and I love our (timeshare) condo in Florida, and the weather is always nice when we are there. 

Friday, when Deanne and I got back from shopping, the side of my yard was full of turkeys.  What a delightful surprise!  I call them my turkeys.  When the weather turns cold, my turkeys come back most every day looking for food.  If Joe is home, he takes food out to them.  They run over by the cars or behind trees until he puts the food down, and then they come running to eat it all up.  It really is a fun sight to see.  Deanne took these photos.

I haven't seen my turkeys today.  Maybe because of the rain?  I wonder where they go when it is raining.  Do they have food today?  Do any of them sleep in my trees?  I don't know the answer to this because I've never seen any of them in my trees.  Gosh, so many questions.

A friend of mine posted this next photo on the web and I borrowed it.  I do not know who took the photo, but it is simply gorgeous.  This is a famous landmark from here.  I actually remember way back when it was first painted.  This is Dorchester Bay at sunset.  Wow, simply beautiful!

I've been taking it fairly easy lately but today I want to do a bit more wrapping.  I still have two more boxes to get ready for mailing.  I need to check out some auto insurance prices this week too because I'm getting tired of paying so much money every year.  There are no marks on my sixty four and a half year driving record so I should not have to be paying so much money for the insurance. 

I've already done a bit of research on how much insurance I need to carry on my car, and although a lot of it is confusing, I think I understand enough of it to make some changes in my coverage.  At least I hope I do.

Yesterday I never even opened my laptop so today I have a lot of blog reading to to get caught up on.  So, on that note, I'll take my leave.  First I want to make a fresh cup of something hot to drink, maybe hot chocolate.  Then it's off to do my blog reading.  So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I love seeing wild turkeys in the yard, we have a flock of about ten but years passed we had forty or more …
I'm not much help on the photo editing software, I hope you find one you are happy with, I have a 10" laptop, when I need one for travel, it's been so handy, I paid 199.00 for it at Office Depot five years ago.
Hope your trip to Florida is lots of fun and weather stays nice.
