Good morning. Today would have been my daughter Kerri's 59th birthday. Happy birthday Kerri Anne. We love and miss you very much.
I was watching the news this morning on TV. They had a problem though, and I'm not sure what it was. While they were discussing one item of news, the newscaster said "it's 6:30 now so...." It was daylight outside my window, and it does not get to daylight until after 7 a.m. I looked at my clock and saw that it said 7:30. Hmmm.
Pretty soon, while talking about the weather, they said "it is 6:40." My clock said 7:40. Soon, they said " it was 6:44 a.m. and that it would be daylight around 7:13 a.m." My clock said 7:44 a.m. and it had been daylight for a while. Confusing?????? This was the Boston Channel Five News.
Today I have one of my favorite old photos. This was taken around late December, 1965. It was my first four generation photo. Left to right, back row: Grandpa Thibault, Great Grandpa Thibault, and my children's Daddy. Front row: Kerri, Laura Jean, Audrey, Gary Jr and Deanne.
We were living in my folk's summer cottage that I was slowly winterizing during the day while hubby worked. My folk's were building a new house next door, and later we were going to build us a new house. This was taken just before Laura Jean caught the deadly virus Meningitis. Three babies in our area got it. One was diagnosed in time to be cured, one died, and my Laura Jean lost everything except her life.
Next, I want to share another beautiful digital art painting that my friend Mary Ann did recently. She calls this "Birth of 2020." I love the colors and the energy that it radiates. Thank you Mary Ann for letting me share this.
Today I'm going to take my little Christmas Tree down and put it away. Then I just might begin to clean out a tall storage cabinet that I have in the kitchen. If I just get one shelf done, that will be a help. A shelf a day is a good speed for me.
I have another cute story from my little Bathroom Jokebook. I hope this gives you a chuckle.
Now I'm going to make a hot cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
