Another Busy Day Around Here

July 6, 2016

Good morning.  Tis another gorgeous summer day, just a tad bit warm for my liking.  But then, I'm lucky enough to have air conditioning in my car and my house for when it gets too hot for breathing.  It's only 6:40 a.m, but one has to get up early to be dressed before the contractors get here at 7 a.m.

The guys got quite a lot done yesterday, but I have to say that they could have been almost finished by now if they would put in an eight hour work day.  Friday they only worked about four hours, and yesterday they worked maybe five and a half hours.  They'll be here today (I don't know for how long) and then they won't be back until next Monday.  I was promised that when they get here next week, they will stay until the job is finished.  Let's hope!!

Here's the crew working yesterday even though it was raining lightly all morning.  Actually, the rain felt quite refreshing. 

Late morning, a big truck arrived, bringing in a dumpster for all the refuse.  The dumpster was tucked in under the tall trees.

Early afternoon, Deanne and Kevin stopped by on their way to drop off Kevin's car to the Jiffy Lube.  So far, the car seems to be running pretty good.  And very quiet, I must say. 

Shortly after that, the building crew packed up and headed home.  Till tomorrow.  They did get quite a bit done, but another hour or so might have seen the porch roof finished.  Ah well, it will be next week soon enough.

While the guys were working, I noticed that another of our lilies blossomed.  This one is a pretty yellow, sort of a deep lemon yellow. 

Pretty soon, I'll have to shut the door.  Pogo won't be happy about that, but if I don't close it, he will be constantly barking at the noises outside.  I have to admit though, he has been very good through all of these disruptions.

Later this morning, Pogo and I will go to the bank.  Got to pay these guys.  Then we'll have to decide what to make for supper.  DIL Janet will be coming by later after work.  I really enjoy these Wednesday evenings with her. 

Tomorrow, grandson Kevin is going to take me to visit with Aunt Lucy.  At least that's the plan right now.  Now it's time for me to get busy here.  The crew will be here momentarily.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
Great progress on the porch. What a big difference it will make when it is done. Not too much more to the finish.

I haven't felt well yesterday or today. I haven't even done a scrap page in a few days. Not since I did the one for Pogo. I bought a new Readers Digest and read it cover to cover yesterday.

The kids made it to their destination just fine and I got a text from Jonathan around 9:30 last night saying we have a fire inspection on Thursday. We have nothing planned that day so one of us will be home for it.

Love the lemon yellow of the flower. I have to do something with the ivy in my front window. It is growing so much that it is taking over the window. It is all that good morning sunshine. It is the only place in the house that gets sunlight.

I suppose it is time for coffee so I will close. I hear the coffee pot doing it's final burping sound. Take care and have a wonderful visit with Janet. Loove to you and Pogo. Love Beth and Cisco.

You sound like someone with more patience than me. I think they should stay and finish the job.

The porch is shaping up nicely, I can't wait to see it when it's finished. Are you going to have glass windows or just go with screen? Some of my best memories are of sleeping on my grandmother's screened porch when it was too hot to be upstairs.

Well, enjoy the day and then you;ll have to be patient till next week to have that porch finished.
Have a wonderful day,
