Good morning. It's beautiful outside this morning, but well on it's way to another hot sticky day. I think after yesterday's busy afternoon, Pogo and I will have a lazy day today.
Yesterday afternoon, Pogo and I went to Kevin's graduation/birthday celebration party. In two weeks, he will turn eighteen years old. Gosh, from a tiny two pound miracle baby to a tall, handsome young man! Do I sound like a wicked proud grandma? I hope so! Because I am!
On the way to the party, all traffic had to stop for a while to let a couple of turkey families cross the street.
It was quite warm out, but Deanne's backyard was mostly shaded so it was very comfortable. Pogo and I stayed for a couple of hours and got to visit with everyone before it was time for us to head back home. Of course, I took lots of photos with my cell phone, and one movie of Kevin and his friends playing basketball in the swimming pool.
I got to see one of my granddaughters and a great granddaughter that I haven't seen in quite a while. This is Mia (granddaughter) and Amelia (great granddaughter).
There were two other great grandchildren there too, and I have photos of them to share. This is Jack Jack and his sister Lilah.
The heat and anxiety yesterday was finally getting to Pogo, and the poor little guy started getting small cases of the squirties. I did my best to keep cleaning up after him, and once we got home he was fine. Till just now....I'm trying to get my breath back after cleaning up after him again. If it doesn't cool down soon, I'll run out of breath altogether.
It wouldn't be so bad if I could kneel, but knee surgery many years ago prevents me from kneeling. So I have to bend over to clean anything on the floor. Needless to day, this takes away all my breath. For my next doggie, I need one that does not poop.
Back to yesterday, we were only home about an hour and a half when the thunder and lightning started, and all of a sudden the heavens opened and poured tons of rain down on us. Oh dear, Deanne has a yard full of people, a pool full of kids, and all sorts of delicious food on tables and cooking on the grill. Needless to say, there was a mad scramble to bring everything and everyone in out of the downpour. But my Deanne is a scrapper and she kept the day going great for everyone.
I stood out on our front porch for a few minutes to cool down with the rain. Here's one shot showing how hard it was raining.
The only good part of this storm was that it drowned out the party that was going on across the street from me. These are not very nice people, and it was good to see Mother nature dumping on them for a change. I know, I'm not very nice for thinking that way, but it feels good anyway!! (That's my wicked side showing!)
Supper last night was a breeze because I had set it all up in a crock pot in the morning. All I had to was serve it up and eat it. Not bad! It was a new recipe, and tomorrow I'll share it with you.
I hope today stays nice because Deanne has invited everyone back to party some more while it's nice out. I'd love to go back and visit more with everyone, but I think Pogo and are in to stay till the weather cools down a bit.
Well, that's it for today. I'm going to get another cold bottle of water and settle in my lounge chair for a bit. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
