Good morning. "Human Day" number three!!! I got all comfy in my lounge chair last evening to watch some TV, and fell asleep. Around two thirty a.m. I woke up. Well, that was refreshing! Seeing as how I was wide awake, I decided to crochet for a while on the Paddy Green lapghan.
Yesterday was a lovely day, and Pogo and I took advantage of the nice weather. We went to the Post Office to mail off a couple of boxes, and then stopped by the bank. The bills got to be paid no matter how you feel. On the way home, we stopped by McDonalds for our regular order, a double hamburger plain for Pogo, and an ice coffee for me. It was a nice little outing for both of us.
When we got home, Pogo and I took a walk around the yard to see which plants might be blooming. Oh my, some of them are just gorgeous. I took quite a few photos with my phone, and I'll be sharing them here once I have cropped them.
Today I have photos of my Rhododendrons. These blooms don't last very long, but they surely are beautiful. This first photo is the white bush, which is just starting to blossom.
And this is the rosy lavender bush, along with a close-up shot of one of the blooms. Next year, I would like to find an orange azalea bush to compliment these bushes. One of my neighbors has one, and it is simply gorgeous.
I'll have more photos for you on Sunday's post. Later this afternoon, after Joe gets home from work, we are going food shopping. Today we will shop at Market Basket for some of the items that we cannot get at Walmart. I, for one, need to get another big bag of peanuts for my birds and small critters. So far, I can only find these at Market Basket.
I also have to look for another squirrel feeder. We used to have one hanging on one of the trees, but I guess all that snow we had ate the feeder. We have not found it anywhere. I think when we get a new feeder, we'll nail it to the tree trunk.
It's early yet, only 6:50 a.m., and it's 50F degrees, working towards 71F degrees. Today will be a combination of sunny and cloudy, with some rain expected later today. I can see some branches flapping around a bit outside my window, so I guess we'll have a breeze too.
This morning, I had a cup of coffee and a peanut butter sandwich. The peanut butter tasted super, but the coffee isn't tasting like it used to. Don't get me wrong, it tasted okay, just not the way I remember it tasting. So, I think I'll make me another cup, and try again. With all the meds I've been taking lately, a lot of things don't taste the same anymore.
If this "human day" continues, I think I'll give the vacuum cleaner a run about the house tomorrow. I'm trying not to over-do, but there is so much in need of work around here. I'll be busy till next Winter trying to catch up on any of it. In between crocheting, that is.
Well, I think I've about gabbed your ears off, so I'll take my leave here. Y'all be safe and have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
