Good morning. As I wake up to another beautiful day, I realize that there is only one more month of Summer left. How quickly the year is passing by. I'm hoping that Autumn will be comfortable and linger on for a while so that Winter will seem shorter.
I'm finding that with retirement comes a lot of quiet days. Mind you, I'm not complaining. I just don't think I'm accomplishing as much as I should. But then, maybe it's supposed to be this way.
The highlight of yesterday was when Joe and I washed a few of the windows out in the house. I supplied the paper towels and window cleaner and watched as Joe did the actual washing. Well, actually I did do something to help. I moved all the plants away from the windows and placed them on the kitchen table. Then I got to put them all back.
I'm watching (what else?) the Weather Channel, and they are saying that some folks in California are now asking people to stop using water in this foolish water bucket challenge that is going around, and substitute something else for the water. So far, folks have dumped out 5 million gallons of water across the country. WHAT A WASTE!
This morning I have some more photos that I took while at the baseball game a few days ago. There was a large beautiful bird flying off in the distance near the clouds. Every so often it would fly a bit lower, and I tried to get a photo. When I got home and looked at my photos, I was in for quite a surprise. It was a vulture. This first photo is a close up of the second photo.
Lori Kimball (Mandarin Orange Monday) has started a new meme called Geometric Friday. This is something new for me but I thought I would give it a try. I don't do art as much as I do photography, so my first contribution is a photo of palm trees all lined up in rows.
Well that's about it for the news this morning. In a few hours, Pogo and I will go out to do a couple errands. Meanwhile, Thomas and Friends is on TV, and that is one of our favorite morning TV programs. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
