Good morning. It's a bright sunny day, and I do believe it's going to be hot, hot, hot. Well, guess what? Yup, yup, yup!! The porch is finished! Yeaaaaaaah!! But I can't use it for a bit.
What? Are you kidding me? Groan, groan. How we all did not notice this, I don't know, but there is a hornet nest in the cornice over the window (on the house inside the screened part of the porch) Now I don't know about you, but I'm not so happy about sharing my beautiful new porch with hornets!
Last evening after supper, Joe filled the nest with hornet spray. It killed a few, but there are still a few hornets that won't leave the porch. We'll probably have to remove the cornice altogether. I'll see if Joe will do that soon. Like tonight!! Oh gosh, I hope so.
Here are some photos of the finished project. Before leaving, the workers found a good place for my flag, and put it up for me.
They even built a really nice gate that is Pogo proof. We hope! Now Pogo can run around the whole porch. He'll probably want to stay out there all day. Next, they put in a couple hanger hooks so that I could put up the hanging plants. One inside the screened area, and one near Pogo's door.
Folks, there's nothing like a little porch, some pretty flowers and a fur baby to chase away any blues that might decide to come your way. I have waited twenty one years for this porch, and I love it!
Lately, I've been looking around for an old movie that I really enjoyed and would like to watch again. Last evening, I found it on Amazon, so I ordered it. It's called Torch Song Trilogy. So guess what I'll be doing Friday evening? Yup, you guessed it! If you like movies with a lot of human emotions and feelings, give this one a try.
Today, I'll be staying off my feet a lot. My left foot and lower back have been acting up again. Last night, I finally dug out the pain pills so that I could get some sleep. Pogo woke me up around 4 a.m. with his scratching. I'm not sure what they used at the salon for shampoo, but he has been itching since he came home with his new hair cut.
So, after brushing him and giving him some Benedryl, I put him in his bathtub (the new bathroom sink) and gave him a bath with his medicated shampoo. Then we sat on the sofa while I towel dried him. Of course, that meant we had to play a while too. It was close to six a.m. before we both nodded off to sleep again.
Needless to say, my eyes are a tad bit droopy this morning. So I'm going to treat myself to a nice nap in a little while. Pogo is already sleeping. Well, that's my news for this morning. Now I'm going to head over to my comfy lounge chair and let my eyelids droop shut. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
