Good morning. Well, today is delivery day for the new furniture. I will call the store in a little while (after they open) to make sure everything is still on schedule. Gosh, I hope they don't mess up. If they don't show up today, there will be no place for the dwarfs to sit and watch TV when they get home from work.
My little guy has been coughing a bit lately, so I will call today and make an appointment with his doctor for a check up. It's time for his heart worm test anyway. I also need to check to see when his rabies shot runs out. I will have to check his health insurance to see if the "cough" visit is covered.
Yesterday was a very lazy day that included a nap in the afternoon. I guess I did a bit too much walking on Sunday because it left me completely exhausted yesterday. However, I'm feeling just fine today. Except for feeling sticky. I feel sticky because the air is quite muggy.
Tomorrow morning, the window guy is coming. Hopefully, this will be a fruitful and satisfactory visit. It would be nice if I could get the bulk of the rest of the windows replaced this year. After that, I can see about having the trim around all the windows scraped and re-painted.
Recently, I bought myself a new book that I'm looking forward to reading. "Memories Of Maggie" by Noonie Fortin is about what Colonel Maggie (a.k.a. Martha Raye) did for (and with) our veterans over five decades and through three wars. I remember her as a comedienne, singer and movie star. Growing up, I was never aware of the depth of this other side of her.
On November 2, 1993, Martha Raye was awarded The Presidential Medal Of Freedom by President Bill Clinton. I counted all the awards that she received that were listed in the book. There were 37 awards, ranging from Woman Of The Year to Distinguished Service Award to finally this Presidential Medal Of Freedom. It's quite an awesome list of awards, and Colonel Maggie was an awesome woman.
Today I have photos of my hydrangeas to share with you. The colors range from white to blue to lavender to pink.
Now I really must get busy here and take my shower and get dressed. I don't want to be running around in my jammies when the delivery truck gets here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
