Yesterday Was Simply Awesome!

June 13, 2012

It's gray and wet outside this morning, but that's okay because I do not have to go out to do errands today.  It's a good day to catch up on some laundry.  Who knows, I might even squeeze in a little housework too.

Yesterday was such a fun day.  When we got to the new doggie beauty salon the fun started.  One of the groomers had her two Chinese Cresteds there with her.  I've never seen two Cresteds together, and really enjoyed this.  These are beautiful dogs, very royal looking.  Everyone in the shop really seemed to love animals. 

While Tootsie was enjoying some pampering, Eddie and I poked around next door in a seed store.  Gosh, what a fun store!  We were chatting with the woman at the counter, and I just couldn't stop staring at her.  I was really getting excited here.  This couldn't be, yet maybe it could.  Standing before me was my favorite female singer, k.d.Lang. 

I finally couldn't contain myself any longer and blurted out "Has anyone told you that you look exactly like k.d.Lang?"  The woman laughed and said "All the time!"  I've been stopped and asked for autographs many times.  I've even  had the owner of a restaurant send champagne to my table and come by to tell me how honored he is to have me at his restaurant.  Alas, I'm not she, my name is Melissa and I own this building and the businesses in it."

Well, blow me down!  We had a delightful time chatting with Melissa, and looking at all the wonderful products in her store.  When we left here, we went on up the road to Patriots Place.  This is the New Englalnd Patriots stadium and shopping center.  Wowee, what a gorgeous place. 

We only had time to explore one of the stores, so we picked The Christmas Tree Shoppe.  Oh boy!  You walk in the door, and right off you know you're going to have to spend some time and bunches of money on all the fabulous goodies.  Did I?  Well of course.  I'm a girly girl, and love to shop.  While we were at the checkout, my phone rang.  Tootsie was ready to be picked up.  What perfect timing!

Enough of my chatter.  I have some photos to share that I took a few days ago at work.  While I was trying to get a decent shot of the hummingbirds, I noticed this little one hiding inside the rhododendron bush.  Click!  Wow, not a bad shot.

Next, I have one of the plants that grows in Mrs' front yard.  I forget the name of it, but it's quite interesting.

Last, I have a photo of "baby grapes".  Pretty soon, they will be big and round and juicy, and the birds will have a feast.

Now I need to get busy here.  I want to get the laundry started and think about what's for lunch.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

The fuzzy flower looks very much like a dandelion! Once in your garden, it's hard to get rid off!
They look quite beuatiful, but I don;t like to have them in the garden.
Seems the problem with Blogger is only in Firefox. So I could post today, but may be I will wait till tomorrow LOL.
Now I am using IE as browser.
Looks to be quite a nice day today, we should do something with it!
Have a wonderful day
