Good morning. Tis another gorgeous day here in my little part of New England. The sun is shining, there's a gorgeous breeze and the temperature is in the low 70's at the moment. By noon, it should get up to around 80F degrees. It just doesn't get much better than that.
I finally caught up with Aunt Lucy yesterday afternoon by phone. Unfortunately, the news was not so good. Earlier in the day, she had been out doing errands and was in a nasty car accident. It seems some fellow cut her off when she was making a right hand turn.
She insisted that she was okay though, except for some bruises. Oh gosh, she's going to be very sore for the next few days. Aunt Lucy said that one of her sons was going to take her to the car today to get her belongings out of it. (The car was totaled). He said that he would take her car shopping soon. If she is feeling up to it, Pogo and I will go pick her up Sunday and take her out for a while.
I got a call back from the contractor, and they are going to start working on my porch the first week in July. At least that's what the man said on the phone. I think he was going to give me a later start date, but I reminded him that his contract says that all work will be finished by the end of that week. So now I just wait.
I have a lovely photo to share today. This is grandson Kevin's sweetie, Janicee, holding great grandbaby Aurora. Just look at those beautiful smiles! Have I mentioned lately how blessed I am?
I was looking at some sales flyers a couple weeks ago, and it occurred to me that clothing designers have two different standards for designing men's and women's clothes. For example, take a look at videos of any big event and notice how everyone is dressed. The women are dressed provocatively, with see through or skimpy outfits, and the men are covered entirely with non-see through clothing.
Even in bathing suits, the men's suits seem to afford more coverage. I pasted these two ads together to show the difference. You could probably make three or four women's bathing suits from just one pair of men's bathing trunks. I know it's no big deal, just thought I would mention it.
Today I need to call the dealer where I bought my car, and change the appointment for my car's check up and new safety sticker. My appointment is currently for the same day that the contractors are supposed to start working on my porch. I was going to take Pogo to the beauty salon that same day, but I've changed his appointment to next Friday.
This weekend I will have to dig the petunias out of the kiln planter and re-pot them. The kiln is going to be moved to make way for the porch, and I don't want the petunias to be harmed during the move. I've already bought some new pots for the plants. The lilac bush needs to be moved too, but the contractor said that his crew would move it for me. Hmmm, carefully, I hope.
Now I need to get busy and start working on my shopping list. I promised to take Joe grocery shopping later today. I guess we'll go to Walmart because we need to pick up a new spray nozzle for the hose. Before I take my leave, let me share a photo that I took this morning of my pink Knock Out roses.
That's my news for this morning. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
