Bits Of This And That

 August 30, 2022

Good morning.  Today should be sunny with temps in the eighties.  Early this afternoon, a lady from the town will be by to ask me lots of questions.  This is because of the free lunches.  I'm only going to answer so many of her questions.  They don't need to know my history to drop off a free meal.

I thought I would share a photo of my flowers today.  They are loving the warm temps and all the sunshine.  These are so pretty.  I think they are all moss roses.

Perry Mason is on TV now and I'm trying to watch his program and type my blog post at the same time.  Perry Mason is ending, so I'll finish up my blog post and watch Matlock.  (coming on next)

I need to get back to my crocheting soon.  These two afghans are supposed to be Christmas gifts.  I think I'll work on one of them later this afternoon after our "lady guest" has come and gone.

My meal for the day has just arrived.  It looks like chicken, vegetable salad, potato salad, fruit and bread and butter.  And milk.  (Actually, it looks like this most days.)

I learned a new word this week.  Orchardist.  Definition:  an owner or supervisor of orchards.  I probably won't use this new word very often, but I'm glad to know it.

Now it's time to put the laptop away and watch my TV programs.  So, till next post, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous week.  

Hugs, Edna B.

Time To Get Back To Basics

August 23, 2022

Good morning.  Seems I forgot to post this past weekend.  And it's not because I'm busy.  I think this is the quietest year I've had in my whole life.   

My whole life, I've been really busy.  However, since Covid 19 quieted everything down, my life has become wicked quiet.  I'm used to be going lots of places.  Nowadays, I don't go anywhere.  I used to have somewhere to drive (in my car) every day.  It's been over a year since I've last driven my car.  

I didn't do any crocheting these past few days.  One of these days, I'll have to get back to it.  Otherwise, these afghans will never get finished.  For some reason, I just haven't been in the mood lately to crochet.

I found a picture of an unusual bird and thought I would share it.  It's a Magnolia Liliflora, and it is quite interesting.

Can you imagine having a garden full of flowers that look like birds?  Hmmm!  I think it would be quite interesting.  

It's time now for me to check the refrigerator to see what's tasty for lunch.  So, till this weekend, you have a super week.

Hugs, Edna B.

First Weekly Post

 August 14, 2022

Good morning.  I realize that I missed posting the other day, but nothing seems to be happening here so there's not much to write about.  Therefore, I think I'll post once a week on Sunday mornings.  

I'm watching a shopping channel on TV, and it's quite entertaining.  I enjoy listening to how the different items are explained.  For the last few minutes, they've been explaining the uses for a long handled brush.  I must say that it's been very entertaining.  

Think about it.  If you have ten minutes to explain a very simple item, what exactly are you going to say?  Your item doesn't do anything special.  It's just a brush with a long handle.  It takes quite a talent to be one of these sales persons.

Here is the brush being sold.  Price is $12.00.  Nope, I did not buy it.

I'm thinking that today will be a crochet day.  I haven't spent much time crocheting lately, and I really should get back to it.  Otherwise these two afghans will never get finished this year.  I don't understand why I haven't been in the mood to crochet.  

Right now, a new program is on the TV.  It's Classic Concentration.  I enjoy figuring out what the puzzles are.  I'll bet it would be fun to be a contestant on this program.  Hmmm.  Nice thought.

Now it's time to check the refrigerator and see what looks tasty for lunch.  So, stay safe and have a fantabulous week.

Hugs, Edna B.

Ta Da

August 8, 2022

Good afternoon.  Yup, I'm late again!  Nothing much happens around here so I forget that it's time to post again.  It's amazing how your life changes when your days get less busy.  I remember a time when I said that quieter days would be so much better.  However, now that the quieter days are here, it's just not so.  

Tomorrow the temperature will be going down so I'll be able to enjoy sitting out on the porch.  I do think I'll take my crocheting out there with me.  I like to be busy when I'm sitting out.

I'm watching an adorable commercial on TV.  It shows the cutest puppies.  One of these days, I really should see about getting another little dog.  I miss my little Pogo.

I found another super T shirt on the web.  I think this one says it all!  What an awesome chicken!

Now I'm going to go back to watching TV and maybe make something for my supper.  I'll be back on Thursday.  Stay safe and have a fantrbulous week.  

Hugs, Edna B.

A Day Late

August 5,  2022

Good evening.  I found out earlier this evening that I missed typing a post yesterday.  Gee whiz, how did that happen?  Maybe because nothing is happening here?  

This has to be the dullest year I've had in my life.  I think I'd like to blame Covid 19 for this.  Once my travel had been stopped, everything else just seemed to stop too.  I wonder if it was like this for other folks too.  

Watching TV is probably the most exciting thing I do each day.  What would I do without my TV?  I can crochet and do puzzles while I watch TV.  When the TV was first invented, I wonder if anyone realized just how important it would become to so many people. 

Is this cute, or is this cute?  It's the kind of picture that puts a smile on every face.  And it lets us know that even the tiniest animals have feelings.  Look at the smile, and the happy gleam in the eye.  This little critter is happy and adorable.

Now I think I'll crochet a row or two on an afghan.  I really need to do at least one row every day if I want to finish both of the afghans before Christmas.  So, be happy and have a super weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

Such A Beautiul Day!

August 1, 2022

Good morning.  Today will be partly cloudy with temps in the low eighties.  It's actually a great day if you are needing to work outside today.  I'll have to sit on the porch for a while and enjoy the day.  

First, I'll finish watching my TV programs. Even though I have a TV on the porch, I'm not familiar yet with the programs on it.  I'll have to work on this.  

I'm finally working on the afghans again.  Hopefully, I can finish one of them this month.  Now that would be nice!  I've never had this problem before.  (not wanting to work on my projects)  It must be because all the colors are shades of blue and green.  I guess I won't be using these colors again for a while.

My lunch just came.  It is:  chicken scallopino, parslied rotini, roman vegetables, scala bread, butter, brownie cookie, and blueberry bites.  Sounds yummy!  

Let's all say thank you for today.  It's a beautiful day.  If it's going to be like this all summer, Wowsie!  What a fantabulous summer it's going to be!

Now I'm going to get my things together and head for the porch for a while.  So, till Thursday, Y'all have a safe and fantabulous week.

Hugs, Edna B.
