Do you believe this? Today is the last day of May? I realize that as you get older, time begins flying by, but this is ridiculous. It's sort of like "The faster I run, the farther behind I get". No wonder I'm getting old. The years are running faster than I can keep up!
Seriously, it wasn't so long ago that I brought home a very scared looking puppy, and tried my best to coax her into the world of toys and big loves. This wasn't difficult to do because everyone fell in love with my little Tootsie. We thought the chemotherapy years would never end but they did. Now here we are, two old ladies nine years later. I know it was here, but how quickly the time has flown by.
I guess the moral of this is to enjoy each day the best you can. Never stop hugging your loved ones and your friends, and never stop letting them know you love them. There is so much enjoyment in the little things in life, don't miss them.
We have been having lots of fun here at my house with a very simple little thing. Audrey, you'll never guess how much fun we've all been having with that wind chime. We wait to hear the chimes tinkle, and then we run to peek out the window. Somehow, our chipmunks have found the little bowl of birdseed that we put in the nest at the top, and have made it their own personal diner.
Is this not just the cutest thing? We have all (the dwarfs and I) spent so many wonderful moments enjoying watching these little guys. This is what I mean about enjoying all the little things around us.
So, I must confess that I have purposely not mentioned anything about that nasty little smart phone of mine. Deanne and I have been trying for the past two months to get my regular cell phone number transferred over to the new phone. This has not been very much fun nor has it been easy or successfull.
It took all this time to figure out how to get a real live person on the other end of the phone. and all they have managed to do so far is get my old cell phone to a non-working stage, and my smart phone to a non-working stage. Now neither the old phone number nor the new phone number works. Nor does the company care!
DO NOT BUY THE CRICKET MUVE PHONE!! Unless you are some sort of technology wizard and can make anything work, do not buy this phone. It comes with lifetime free music downloads too, but all we've managed to download is two songs. Imagine, six months and just two songs. I do have to say that I love the built in GPS, but even that is no good now because the phone does not work.
Deanne is doing her best to get the phone and the phone number back in working order. Once that happens, I promise to have that "smash the phone" party. Then I will go out and get me a new phone. In the meantime, she has given me a cell phone to use. I don't like being out in my car with no way to call for help in case of an accident.
Enough about the stupid smart phone. The other day, I took photos of some of my plants. Here's one of my peony bushes getting ready to blossom. I do believe these buds will open soon.
We've lost quite a lot of the bulbs that we had in the garden, as well as a few plants. There is a critter around here who is getting quite fat from eating his way through my garden. It especially loves the bulbs. So now it's time to pick up a couple of traps (the safe ones) and catch the little bugger and transport it to a different place to live.
Now I really should get dressed and do a few things around here. Today is such a gorgeous day (sunny, mid 70's) and Tootsie and I want to get our and enjoy some of it. Tomorrow I have to work, so hopefully the rain showers can hold off till then. Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
