Good morning. Tis a bit gray and drizzly here in my little part of New England, but the contractors are here working on my porch anyway. This was definitely a surprise. I rather thought I would be getting a phone call to reschedule because of the rain. Ah well, as long as no one gets hurt, I'm okay with them working in the drizzle.
Except for the few neighbors who have no respect for the laws of the town, it was a nice quiet weekend for Pogo and me. A few neighbors had bought their own fireworks and were setting them off last night and the night before. We only live a few doors from a veterinary hospital, and I'm sure all the animals who were being boarded or hospitalized overnight were traumatized by the noise. The fireworks were being shot off only a couple of doors away.
Grandson Kevin's car died a week or so ago, and he's been looking around for another car. Rather, I should say, an affordable car. He and his folks found a really nice one, but it did need a little work. So SIL Eddie and Kevin spent yesterday working on the new car. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all is well with it now.
Pogo and I went shopping yesterday at The Christmas Tree store. Oh my, so many goodies to choose from. I ended up buying a plant stand and a small glass topped table for the new porch. I also bought a couple of large silk flowers to put up on the wall (side of house). Unfortunately, I have no place to put these things so I've left them in car for now. Next week, they can go on the porch.
My friend Beth posted a scrap page on Facebook that features Pogo, so of course I copied it to share here. My little guy looks so handsome, doesn't he? Thanks Beth, I love it!
I think I mentioned a while back that we had planted a seedling tree from the Red Japanese Maple in the garden on the other side of the house. For a while, it wasn't doing so good, but now it is looking really nice. Now if can just make it through next Winter, I'll be very happy with it.
There's not much more news, so I think I'll meander outside and see what's happening with the porch. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
