Good morning. It's looking like another gorgeous sunny day here in my little part of New England. Our weather for this week and next is rather a perfect way to transition from Spring to Summer.
Today I want to share something that I read in the AARP magazine about more ways to be prepare for a disaster. Transfer your personal photos and videos to a flash drive and attach the drive to your home keys. You can save thousands of photos and many videos to a 64 GB drive, which costs under $20. Next to your family, your precious memories are what you least want to lose in a disaster.
Yesterday, I transferred all my photos and videos from my cell phone over to my flash drive. I've started taking some of them off the phone, and today I will delete a lot more of them from the phone. You might want to be careful of what you take photos of with your phone. Google seems to have a knack for going into your phone and publishing all your photos on Facebook. This is not quite fair and I'm not really happy about it. Google does not respect anyone's privacy.
There are so many buds opening on the light pink peony plant, that I went outside and picked one of the buds and brought it in for all to share. In this photo, I'm holding the partially opened bud in my hand. Imagine how big this will be when it is fully opened!
The Mint Julep rose bush will be blossoming soon. It has tiny light yellow buds on it.
Our little birdies have been quite hungry lately, and we fill up the feeders twice a day now. One little fellow who seems to really love the new feeder is a resident chipmunk. He checks it out several times a day to make sure he got all the food. Dwarf Helen took this photo from the kitchen window.
I managed to get a couple loads of laundry done yesterday afternoon, and while waiting for the clothes to wash, I tried to delete a large pile of junk mail. I must say that I eradicated most of it. However, I'll have to do a bit more work on it today.
SIL Eddie and his friend Cliff are on the way here to start working on the upstairs bathroom. The floor needs a bit of work, and then they will replace all of the floor tiles. I think maybe it's time for me to get dressed before the guys get here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
