April 28, 2016

Good morning.  It's a beautiful sunny day here in my little part of New England.  It's a bit cool at the moment, but the temps will get to around 60F degrees later today.  Can't complain about that!

Yesterday was a busy day, starting when the big trucks started coming into my driveway.  (It's more like a parking lot)  One truck had a bucket on it, and the other truck was towing a wood chipper behind it.  They were here to trim away some dead limbs from my Japanese Red Maple and one of the big Norwegian Spruce trees.

I took some photos (you know me, I take photos of everything) to share.  It was really quite fascinating to watch these fellows work.  As you can see, the sun was very bright, so it was a challenge finding a spot to stand to take photos.

While they were here, they even cut down an old overgrown shrub that I wanted cut down.  When they were done working, they cleaned everything up.  I would definitely hire them again.

Well, today is my Pogo's big day!  Happy Birthday Pogo.  I'm wishing you many more happy years so that I can keep on spoiling you and showering you with love.  You have brought much joy into my life and I am ever so thankful for that.

I made the birthday cake yesterday because I wasn't sure if I would be home long enough today to make it.  Today I will frost it, and later we will have a little party for my special guy.  I doubt if Pogo will eat the cake, but we'll see.  Sassy isn't quite so picky, so we'll send most of the cake over for her to enjoy.

It's hard to decide what sort of presents to get for Pogo (sorry, but I've enjoyed spoiling him) so I think I'll make him an appointment for a pedicure and maybe have his face and hair trimmed a bit.  Here's a photo I just took of Pogo.  He's sitting right here next to me.  As you can see, he has the afghans all scrunched up to just the right amount of comfy.  Except for a bit of gray hair creeping in, you would not guess that he is ten.

We were hoping to go visit with Aunt Lucy today, but things have come up, so we'll see about going over the weekend.  Aunt Lucy loves to bird watch, so I've had one of my robin photos done up on canvas for her.  I'm hoping that she will like it.

Before I finish this post, I have a quick page for you.  Maybe you can use it for one of your Mother's Day photos. 

Here is your download link: 

That's my news for today.  Now it is time for me to do a few chores around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Those guys for cutting the trees seemed to have done a great job and they even cleaned the whole place up too!
I am sure autn Lucy will be happy with the present of the robin.
Have a lovely day and enjoy the visit to Aunt Lucy and the birthday party of Pogo, of course!
