Good morning. I had planned to sleep a bit later this morning, but Pogo had other ideas. He heard someone out in the house and flew to the pantry to bark, hoping that it was Joe. Alas, it was not Joe and I had to get up and make Pogo come in from the pantry before he woke up the whole house.
I've opened the front door to let in some wonderful fresh air and morning sunshine. I will definitely be missing this once the cooler weather starts moving in. I read in the newspaper that the Farmers Almanac is predicting a colder than usual winter for us in the Eastern part of the country. Gosh, I do hope they are wrong.
Friday evening, Dee Dee and Eddie picked me up and we all went to watch Jasmine's theatre group perform "Bye Bye Birdie". I must say that this was a most enjoyable evening. Gosh, if my Michael were here he would have been absolutely thrilled (as we all were) because he just loved Broadway Musicals.
Jasmine was part of an ensemble that did a lot of singing and dancing, plus she had a little solo in one of the scenes. She and the rest of the cast were just awesome. Yesterday they did two more performances, and the last one will be this afternoon. I can't wait for the next play.
Yesterday, I rented a U-Haul truck (which Joe offered to drive for me) and we headed for grandson Bobby's apartment along with Dee Dee, Eddie and Kevin. Shortly after we got there another car pulled up with a couple of Bobby's friends. While I watched over Pogo, everyone managed to get all of Bobby's things packed into the truck and both cars.
Then we all headed on over to the new apartment where Bobby was moving to. Once there, everyone pitched in and got all the vehicles unloaded and quite a bit of the stuff moved into the apartment before we all (Dee, Eddie, Kevin, Joe, Pogo and I) headed back to the U-Haul place to return the truck. A job well done.
During this time, Kevin showed me how to send photos via email from my new phone. What an age to be at! I have so much that I can teach my grandchildren, and they have even more that they can teach me.
The photo that I had sent from my phone to my computer is my first attempt at trying the camera on my new phone. Of course, the model was my handsome Pogo. Not bad for my first try. How could anyone not love this precious little bundle of joy.
I also have another photo to share. This next one was taken a few days ago from my kitchen window with my DSLR. I love trying to photograph the birds while they are in flight, and managed to catch this little sparrow at just the right time.
Last night after supper, Pogo and I settled in to watch the "Celebrity Chopped Champion" finale. While we watched TV, I put a few more rows on the yellow afghan. The colors in it are so pretty. There's yellow, green and pink along with a variegated yarn. I promise to take a photo of it later today. I have less than forty more rows to go and it will be finished.
Today, I really must do a load of laundry. After that, I'll just take it easy and enjoy this absolutely gorgeous day. And that's all my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
