Yesterday Was A Fantabulous Day!

May 21, 2014

Good afternoon.  My goodness, did we sleep a bit late or what?  It seems that the room temperature, the mind and the body were all in sync with each other last night, and that brought on a long beautiful sleep.  Ahhhhhhhhh, zzzzzzzz!

Yesterday, we did a couple of errands, then Joe and Pogo and I went to the garden center to shop for veggies.  There was so much to choose from, but we eventually picked out some tomatoes,  yellow squash, green peppers, orange peppers and cucumbers.  Of course, one cannot leave the garden center without some new flowers too.  We found some lovely pink and white and purple petunias to make up a couple of hanging pots.  I'll take photos of these when they are done.

While we were shopping, a lady stopped to admire Pogo and his stroller.  She said her little dog was eight years old and had a lot of trouble walking, and that she was thinking of buying a stroller.  We told her about my pink stroller, and offered it to her.  All she had to do was come by and pick it up.  I gave her my card with my name and phone number.

Around 5:30 p.m. she called and asked if she could come by to pick up the stroller.  Folks, I never got rid of the pink stroller because it still had lots of use left in it.  Only the zipper on the netting did not work.  Well anyway, the lady came by, and was just thrilled with the pink stroller.  Joe put it in the trunk of her car, and she left a very happy person.  Somewhere, there's a little doggie who is going to enjoy going for walks in her new carriage.

Mr. Pogo was also a very happy little chap yesterday.  I finished his little afghan, and put it on his bed.  He immediately hopped on it and made himself quite comfy.  In fact, he snuggled right in and had himself a nice nap.

I also have a photo of one of the new roses.  This one is the purple rose, and oh my it is just beautiful.  The orange buds haven't opened yet, so I'll get photos of those later.

Well, that's my news for today.  DIL Janet will be coming by later this afternoon, and we will have our dinner and crochet fest.  It makes for a really nice evening.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

So a good sleep, nice visit to garden centre, you helped out a lady with her doggie, finished Pogo's afghan, yes, you had a terrific day LOL!
Of course you couldn;t leave without a few flowers too! Petunias are so lovely and long flowering.
I just bought us two, they will have to grow a bit, but have gorgeous colors.
The color of your rose is abosolutely stunning!
Always love to see photos of Pogo, he really enjoys your craftwork!
Oh, and sometimes seeds won't grow, therefore you need to put some in several little pots, most of the time some of them will do their job and grow to be lovely plants LOL.
We often start already early in the year, about February, and have them in the room. Seedlings like it warmer when they start, and by the time you can put them outside, they will have grown enough to overcome their chenge of conditions. Often we still leave them in the pots and plant them out when they have acceptable size.
A little greenhouse helps too for some of them. You can buys those little ones for ittle money or you will have to cover them with a little plastic bag ( we often use the little containers of grapes or strawberries of such, very handy!
Have another great and fruitful day dear!!

I am playing catch up again. I love Pogo and his blanky ... looks so comfy and warm and his shirt matches the color of the blanket. He is one lucky little fella.

I have been waiting to see your new roses ... this one is gorgeous and I can't wait to see the orange one. I think orange roses are striking ... you can put the orange rose picture on MOM. You haven't done that in awhile.

I went to the garden center yesterday and picked up some fertilizer. There were so many beautiful flowers ... I just couldn't make up my mind what I wanted. I planted my Cannas yesterday and some Hollyhocks that my neighbor gave me. Today I will plant the Calaa Lilies and then I will be forced to make some decisions on what flowers I want to put in my pots on the deck. It is a busy time here, so it is hard to keep up with the yard work.

Your kind heart strikes again and a little dog who has a hard time walking will get to enjoy the outdoors without pain. That is an awesome story and you generosity doesn't surprise me a bit ... you are a good soul, Edna.
