Good morning. The sun is shining bright, and the weather man is promising several warm sunny days in a row for the rest of the week. Yesterday started out pretty nice, but then the sky got dark and the rain came with just a bit of thunder in the background.
The past couple of weeks, I've been reading a lot in the newspaper of folks complaining about the changes in Boston airport's runways, and the extra noise overhead from more planes. I really did not pay much attention to most of it, but then last night I understood what these folks were complaining about.
It seemed as though the planes were taking off right overhead all through the night. Mind you, if you were already asleep, you probably would not even hear the planes. I'll have to wait to see how this extra air traffic sounds after it has been here a while.
Yesterday, I got the new shredder set up, but that's far as far as I got. It just was not a "feel good" day for me and I finally took to my bed. Today, I will get to the shredding. It was suggested that I might take all my shredding to a local store that does it for free, but I have my reservations about that. Our town has set aside a day to do our shredding. It's free, just pack it up and bring it to them.
The problem I am having with this is my personal business. With the government downloading everyone's personal business off the internet, I don't really trust the town to shred my papers if I am not there watching. Most often, these places tell you to just leave your bags of papers and they will do the shredding later. Thank you, but I'll do my own shredding.
I think I will have to re-schedule my cleaning lady too. I need more time to get every thing clean before I let her in to clean it for me. Gosh, don't I sound pathetic? This happened some years ago when I was lucky enough to be able to hire some help with the cleaning. I wore myself out getting everything cleaned so that she wouldn't see the mess. Really! I think my brains got just a tad bit fried over the years.
Remember how the woodchucks ate my welcome plant? Well it is beginning to grow again. Here's a photo of how it looks now. It's getting new blossoms.
I took this next photo as I was leaving work a few mornings ago. The birds have found a new branch for their morning meetings.
Now it's time to get dressed and start my day. I want to see what's for supper tonight too because Janet will be here. Hmmmmm. I think Pogo and I will sit out in the yard for a bit too, and enjoy this beautiful weather. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
