Good morning, and Happy Labor Day. The temps are much higher today. It was warm and humid all through the night, and the hot high 80's temps are back with us for most of this week. Ah well, it is still summer.
We finally got a little bit of rain last night, but we could use some more. Some areas of the state actually got so much rain yesterday that their streets flooded. I'm not asking for flooded streets, but a little rain each night would be so good for the gardens and lawns.
Today is Mandarin Orange Monday, so here is my contribution. The photograph of the hummingbird is my own, while the background and the tulips were borrowed from the web. Of course, I re-colored the tulips to my favorite color, orange.
Today is also the first day of September. Wow! Two thirds of the year has already slipped by. I need to get busy on my next calendar. I have a tendency to tell myself that it's okay to wait till tomorrow, but the tomorrows are slipping by so quickly. Here is my calendar page for this new month.
On the news this morning (on TV), they have been talking about the new I-Phone. It seems that this new phone will become your new wallet and eliminate the need to carry credit cards. I, for one, am not sure I like this idea.
Right now, it is difficult to keep one's phone safe. There is always someone lurking close by, trying to steal your smart phone. With this new phone, the robbers will be in heaven. Not only will they steal your phone, but they'll get all your credit cards too. I'm wondering why Apple did not come out with an armored safe vest first for their customers to wear to help keep their new phones safe.
Also on the news this morning -- a lot of celebrities are getting all upset because a flood of naked photos of themselves and their boyfriends/girlfriends have been hacked and released on the internet. Oh me, oh my!! Didn't anyone ever tell these folks that once something is put on the web, it stays there? The web is not the place for sharing your naked photos. Not with anyone!! (unless, of course, you want to be seen!)
Soon my grandson, Kevin, will be coming by to help me with some household chores. So, I think it's time for me to get dressed. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
