Good morning. It's really nice here this morning. However, it hasn't been so nice in other parts of the country. Every time I hear that more rain is headed towards the mid-west and central parts of the country, I worry for the safety of friends living in that area. My goodness, I don't know how much more rain they can handle. Every day I say a little prayer that they make it safely through another day.
Folks, it's not just people who are having a difficult time with these horrible weather patterns. Our animals are having a hard time coping with all the flooding and chaos, and especially the noise from the thunder and lightning storms. If you can, try using a "thunder jacket" for your pets. It helps to keep them calm so that they aren't so frightened.
Yesterday I got a phone call from the "yard treatment" folks letting me know that they would be out to do my yard today. Well, about an hour ago they showed up. I watched (from indoors) as the technician went about spraying the whole yard. They use an all-natural liquid formulation of 100% organic ingredients that is safe for pets, people, birds, plants, etc. I'll let you know if this treatment helps with the mosquito problem.
Later yesterday afternoon, SIL Eddie stopped by and fixed the toilet problem. Yeaaaaaaaahh!!!!! I don't have to tell you how wonderful that is!!! God bless my SIL!!! It wasn't the funnest job to do, but he kept a smile on his face the whole time.
DIL Janet could not come by last evening because they added a new member to their family yesterday and she wanted to spend the evening getting acquainted. I have not been given all the particulars yet, but I do believe it is another kitty. Janet, I wish you much happiness with your new fur baby.
I had a request to put up a link to receive the blog posts via email. With a bit of help from a blog friend (thank you Ida), I was able to add the link on the top right side of this page, just beneath my avatar.
Today I have a couple more photos from our garden. One is another shot of our huge purple iris, and the other is a peach rose. The pink rose tree is in full bloom, so I'll try to get photos of that later today.
Later today, when Joe gets home from work, we'll go food shopping. So, after lunch, I'll get busy and make up my shopping list. This will be the extent of my excitement for the day. Woo Hoo!!!
Well that's about all my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
