Good morning. It's sunny and 70F degrees right now. Temps are supposed to hit the mid 80's by noon time. You know darn right well I'm going to be looking for new blossoms in my garden later this morning. Yesterday, it rained and watered all the plants and lawns really good. Today's warmth will encourage lots of new blooms.
Well, I'm not gimping so bad now. Dwarf Helen brought me some Epsom Salt yesterday, and I soaked my sore fat foot. Oh my, it made my foot feel so much better. Last evening, I soaked it again with the Epsom Salt and was able to get some comfortable sleep during the night.
It brought down a little of the swelling and a lot of the pain. I'm not quite so gimpy now. (or grumpy!) However, I will call my doctor this morning to get an appointment. Meanwhile, I'll keep up the foot soaks.
Today I have more photos from my yard. This first one shows the front portion of the yard on the other side of the house. It used to be all overgrown shrubbery. Now it's this way all the way to the back end of the house.
The back of the house is still quite forest-like, (providing homes for some wildlife and birds) with lots of Sweet William growing there. Here's a view from the driveway side of the house.
And here are a few more of the pretty posies that grow in our gardens.
Yesterday, grandson Kevin and his sweetie Janicee came by. We had a lovely visit and chatted about everything including jobs and college. Janice would like to study pediatric oncology. When Kevin finishes with college, he wants to enlist with Uncle Sam, and then on to working with either the State Police or the FBI. Wowsie!!
When I was a little girl, my Daddy always told me to "Reach for the moon Honey. You're bound to land on a few stars on your way there." It looks like my kids are doing just that!! God bless and guide them along the way.
It's time now for me to get busy here. First I have a phone call to make, then I have dishes in the sink waiting to be washed. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
