Good morning. It's looking a bit cloudy outside, so I guess maybe that rain is going to catch up with us after all. That will definitely slow down the street work that is going on in front of my house. The town is cleaning the main water pipes.
They have to run temporary water lines to every house and building on the street (a very long street) and all the side streets, then re-hook each building up to a temporary water supply, then clean out the main water pipes, then re-hook us all back to our original water hook-ups.
I know, it sounds complicated and I suppose it is. I'm wondering where the temporary water supply is coming from. Why not just shut off the water supply for a few hours, clean the main water pipe, then turn the water back on? I suppose then they would not have an excuse to come into our basements?
I don't like letting strangers into my house or basement when I am home alone. Maybe they will wait till Joe gets home from work to come in. I have become very cautious in my elder doddering years. Funny, I will fly hundreds of miles away to meet a total stranger, but I am cautious about a strange man working on the road by my house. Go figure!
Today I have photos that I took showing different views of my trees. I love how the different textures and colors mix, and they are especially beautiful when the sun is shining through them. Mother Nature certainly does know how to put on a colorful show.
I've been working on the brown afghan, and have about a third of it done. As soon as the red, white and blue yarn gets here, I'll set the brown afghan aside and work on a patriotic afghan. I have till next March to finish all the BDafghans on my "to do" list. In between, I have a few smaller projects in the works.
After I finally retire, I may even try making a quilt. Mind you, this is only a thought at the moment. I like having different craft projects to work on. When I get tired of one, I pick up another for a while.
This afternoon I have two appointments for stress tests. I am not looking forward to these, but I will do my best. However, I am not going to let them put in an IV line to put something in my system that will make my heart race quicker or harder. Here, I draw the line. Hopefully the good doctor won't get too upset when I say no. Yes, I know. I'm a brat. But it is my body.
Now it is time to get a few things done around here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
