Good morning. It's 7 a.m. and barely daylight. The sky is cloudy at the moment, and the temp is around 45 F degrees. The weatherman says that it rained a bit during the night, but it looks pretty dry outside my window.
The workers were here yesterday, but I'm not so happy with what they accomplished. They were supposed to have finished one whole area in the front where the new windows are going to be installed, but they only did about half of it, and that half does not look so good to me. I will call the contractor later this morning and let him know that I am not so happy with him.
Last night, I was quite busy doing a bit of holiday shopping online. I got lucky and was able to find a couple of items that I have had a hard time finding. During this time, I was watching the baseball game between the Red Sox and the Cardinals. It was such a close game all the way through right up until the last second of the game when the Cardinals won. Phew!
Today, I think I'll address some more card envelopes. This is a time consuming chore, and as long as I have the time I'd like to get it finished. I also have to get out this week and buy a couple of birthday presents that have to be mailed out by the end of the week. My youngest child, Laura Jean, turns 48 next week. Groan, groan, when your babies are all fast approaching 55 years old, one begins to feel just a tiny bit ancient. Creak, creak!
Yesterday, I went outside to take a few photos of some of the blooms in my garden. There are still roses and hydrangeas with beautiful blossoms.
The weather might be trying to gear us up for winter, but my garden is doing it's best to keep it cheerful here for us. Today I will see if any of the pink rose buds have opened and get a photo of them. Nature is so full of surprises.
Now I think I will get some breakfast for Pogo. He's lying here quietly beside me pretending to be asleep. However, as soon as I head for the kitchen he will hop down off the sofa and head for his breakfast bowl. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
