Good afternoon. Wowee, I could have kept right on sleeping. Yesterday I felt a bit sluggish, and last evening it wasn't any better. I was very tired, but not enough to fall asleep. I even tried crocheting for a while but kept losing interest. Finally I took one Melatonin and slept until 11 a.m. this morning.
Maybe all that fresh air yesterday jiggled my brains a bit, and that's why I was so tired. Hmmm? I had an appointment at the nail salon, and from there Pogo and I did an errand (or tried to). I was trying to deliver some things to Dee's house, but no one was home, so I turned the car around and Pogo and I went to the park.
There were a few swans, lots of geese and ducks, and a variety of gulls and black birds. Needless to say, Pogo was in doggie heaven! He was so busy running from one goose poop to the next goose poop. Each one had to be sniffed. Then he climbed up onto the little stone wall to watch all the activity in the water.
I turned my eyes away from him for a moment, and next thing I knew he had jumped off the wall and right into the edge of the water. Oh my goodness!! I never expected him to do anything like this. I could not reach all the way down, but I could grab the back of his harness and lift him right back up onto the wall.
Now that tells me two things. One, I have to keep a better eye on my little "super doggie"; and two, I think I'll buy Pogo his own little swimming pool this year so that he can splash in the water all he wants. I'll pick up a couple of rubber duckie toys to put in the pool.
Here are photos of one of the swans and a couple of the little ducks that we were enjoying watching. Have you ever seen a duck smile? It looks as though the first little duck is actually smiling at us.
Later today, I will pick out a few more photos to share. There was a new duck in the pond this year, but I still have to crop his photos so I'll post those on Sunday.
Our temperature went down a few degrees today, but tomorrow it should be back up in the 50'sF. Joe promised to help me clean out the garden on the other side of the house, and to cut back the butterfly bushes.
Today I want to try to make it to my grandson Kevin's baseball game. It's the first game of the season played at home, and they will be playing in a regular baseball stadium. The city of Brockton has it's own baseball team, the Brockton Rox, and the high school varsity baseball team gets to play all of its home games in the Brockton Rox stadium. How exciting for these kids.
One of our dwarfs is in the hospital, so I want to give her a call now to see how she is doing. I will post more when I'm sure she is alright. Well, that's all my news for today. So till Sunday, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
