Good morning. It's super nice outside at the moment. Unfortunately, by the time Pogo and I get to our appointment at the car dealership later this morning it will be hot and sticky. Ah, but the good news is that it is supposed to start a cool down this evening and tomorrow should be in the 70's. It's only for one day, but I'll take it!
I've been sitting here trying to think of what it was that kept me so busy all day yesterday. Aside from doing one load of laundry, I'm stumped! But I was busy, honest! Well, I did spend some time on my laptop, and about an hour reading the new catalogues that came in the mail. Hmmm.
Gosh, if my mother could see me now, she'd roll over in her grave. As kids, my brother and I were not allowed to just sit around doing nothing very often. We had chores to do besides keeping our room spotless. Plus we had to wash our own laundry in the sink with a scrub board, hang it out to dry, iron it and put it away. And believe me, everything got ironed. Hankies, undies, pillow cases and sheets, everything! When we were finished, we made a mad dash to the park to be with our friends.
I found a wicked fun photo on Facebook that I just had to share here. It's a "riding lawnmower" that is for sale. Jeff Foxworthy had something to do with this, and I wouldn't be surprised if this were his own "riding" lawnmower. Anyhow, I had me a wonderful giggle over this. It's just too funny!
Last night I watched the shopping channel, QVC, for a while and purchased a "Leaf Blower, Mulcher, Vacuum." It comes with two bags, safety glasses and a wall hanger unit for storing it.
We've already been having some leaves falling from the trees. My property is surrounded by trees, so you can imagine the amount of leaves that we have to rake up and bag every year. Just filling one of these mulch bags is equal to filling sixteen trash bags with leaves. And, the mulch can be used in the gardens. Another plus is that is will vacuum up and mulch pine needles too!
A couple days ago, Pogo got a really nice surprise in our email. His friend Cisco, who lives in Texas, sent him a wonderful scrap layout wishing him a beautiful day. Cisco, Pogo says "thank you so much" and sends you a woof and a big lick. He hopes your day is fabulous too.
I can't chat too long this morning because we'll leaving for our appointment in a little while. It's just a routine maintenance check up for the car to make sure it is ready for the upcoming winter. Before I go, I want to thank Stacey for her success story regarding yesterday's post. It's always good to hear of someone who had the will power and the strength to find their way back from a life on drugs.
Now I'm off to wash the dishes and get dressed. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
