Good morning. The sun has been shining all morning so far, but the clouds are moving in. We will be expecting rain on and off today, then all through the night. I think this is the beginning of our monsoon, although the weather man says we will get a nice day in the middle of all the rainy days.
I think Mr. Pogo has caught a bug or a cold. He hasn't been eating very good these past few days, and yesterday the "squirts" caught him by surprise. Last evening, I got a roasted chicken for his supper, and he wouldn't even eat any of it. If this keeps up, I'll call his doctor on Monday and see if I should bring him in for a check up.
Kyra asks that I post a photo of the new yarns, so later today I'll take a few photos. If I can finish getting the new planters filled, I'll take photos of them too.
This morning I have a really pretty photo of the top of our cherry blossom tree, along with a couple of cute little garden critters.
It's time to stock up on "Raid". It's the time of year when the ants are beginning to invade my space again. I should also pick up a lot of inexpensive coffee grounds to spread along the outside of the foundation of the house. Dwarf Helen tells me that ants do not like the coffee and will not cross it to come in. I don't like bugs, so I'll try anything
Today I must do some laundry. I also have a couple of scatter rugs in need of a washing too. Maybe I'll wash Pogo's little blankets too just in case there are some of his "cold" germs in them.
Do you ever read the "Word Power" column in the Readers Digest Magazine? It's really quite interesting. Do you know what these words mean?
Planchette -- (a) sorcerer's cloak (b) Ouija board pointer (c)mischievous fairy
Whammy -- (a) trapdoor (b) illusion (c) hex or curse
Sibyl -- (a) seance (b) fortune teller (c) black cat
Now it's time for me to get dressed and get a few things done around here. The wash won't get started by itself. (unfortunately) So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
