Good morning. It's looking a bit cloudy here at the moment, but it's only 8:30 a.m. It's supposed to get quite warm today. (about 90) Right now, it's around 72F with a light breeze. There are little birds chirping outside my door, so that makes it all feel nice.
Well, let me tell you what a fiasco yesterday turned out to be. The window man did show up with a whole car full of samples, and explained all the window options to me. The part I couldn't get past was the cost. Mind you, we were only talking about replacing ten windows. The cost would be between $14,000 and $19,000 depending on what discounts he could give me. GULP!!!
The salesman would like to have signed a work contract before leaving here, but I told him I would have to give this some serious thought. For the record, his windows were fabulous, but just a bit pricey for me.
Meanwhile, I was still waiting for the Building Commissioner to show up. Well, I waited. And waited. Nope, he never showed up, nor did he call to say why he would be a no-show. Sounds about right for a government worker. They don't seem to have much respect for the little man's time.
So, today I'm hoping to go to Home Depot to look at their windows, and get some prices. I'll also price the kitchen cabinets. Then I want to call a few contractors to see about getting plans and prices for a small porch. This should be another busy day.
I've slowed down a bit on my crocheting and TV watching. I mean, I plan on it, and I get all comfy in my chair in the evening. But then I fall asleep for a few hours and miss whatever program it was that I was wanting to watch. Thank goodness I know how to set programs up to record.
Today I have a photo of the pansies that have been planted in my small kiln. The other photo shows the pretty white blossoms on the large rose bush that is just outside my door.
Well, that's my news for this morning. It's time for me to get dressed so that Pogo and I can go shopping. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a simply beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
