Good morning. The sun is shining, but it will be hiding behind the clouds on and off throughout the day. The weather report for the next week is looking really good with temps ranging from the upper 60's to the upper 70's all week.
Yesterday, SIL Eddie and Kevin came by for a while. Kevin watered all my plants and shrubs outside while Eddie washed a few windows for me. Sad to say, I catch on to new fangled things rather slowly these days. However, I think I've finally figured out how to open and flip the windows out so that I can wash them myself. At least I'll give it a try when they are dirty again.
Eddie took some measurements, and will pick up a new sink for my bathroom. The one I have is old and starting to get all crackily around the drain. I think it was initially installed more than thirty five years ago.
By the time Joe got home from work yesterday, I had used up all my energy, so the blueberry plants will have to be planted today. I think I'm going to leave them in the pots they came with. At least until I see how big they will get. I can always get bigger pots later on.
I did not take photos yesterday, so I dug into my archives for a couple photos from May 2013. The first photo is a beautiful Quince shrub. I just love the color of this plant. This is one of the things that I miss about work. The Mrs had so many beautiful plants and trees on her property.
Another thing that I miss about work is all the birds and the wildlife that lived on her property. I used to love watching the little red squirrels scurrying around by the bird feeder looking for food. They were so tiny and adorable.
I must say though, that Nature is all I miss. I heard from someone who still works there, and she said that the Mrs is still mean and cranky all the time. I definitely do not miss this.
Today I want to call Aunt Lucy. It's been a couple of weeks since we've talked on the phone and I want to make sure she is okay. Maybe Pogo and I can take a ride to visit with her this week. I'd like that.
Well, I think I want to get dressed now and put some of my things in the bathroom into a box so that they won't be in Eddie's way if he shows up with a new sink to install. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
