Good morning. It's starting out gray again, but oh my, the temperature feels sooooo good! It's 60F degrees at the moment, but will soon be up around the mid 70's. I just went outside and moved my car because the contractors should be here in just a little while. I think. The last two times they were here, they showed up at 7 and 7:15 a.m. I'm hoping they show up at 7 today. I'd really like to get this porch finished.
We used to have two great big butterfly bushes in the garden on the other side of the house, but the winter with the heavy snows kind of destroyed them. We lost one all together, and cut the other one way down to try to save it. Last year, it didn't look too good, but now it is beginning to grow. I don't know yet what color this one is.
Also, the new white rose bush is covered with lots of beautiful new blooms. This one is planted in the garden near the shed. Gosh, it is just so pretty!
Last evening after supper, Joe helped me take everything off the porch and put it all in my car's trunk. For some reason, Pogo's play yard did not want to cooperate, but after about twenty minutes of trying, Joe finally got it to close up. (men don't like to look at the instructions)
Later I decided to crochet for a while, and golly gee, I found a mistake two rows back. So now I had to unravel those two rows, fix the mistake, and then put the rows back on before I could start any new rows. This sort of takes all the fun out of the crocheting. However, I did manage to get a couple new rows on before setting it aside.
This afternoon after the work crew leaves for the day, Pogo and I have to go to the Post Office and the bank. We have a birthday box to mail, and the bills are wanting to be paid. One birthday is for daughter Audrey's friend, Miss Bea, whose birthday is today. Pogo and I wish you a beautiful day and a happy birthday, Miss Bea.
The other birthday is belated. Granddaughter Andi (Audrey's daughter) had a birthday a few days ago. Pogo and I are sending you belated best wishes Andi, and I hope your birthday was beautiful.
As I sit here typing, the big truck just rolled in with the work crew. Woo Hoo!! It's looking like it might rain, but I hope it holds off until the work is finished. On my next trip out shopping, I think I'll have to look for a new chair for the porch. The ones I bought are comfy, but a tad on the narrow side. My tushi isn't quite as teeny tiny as it used to be. (Haha. Actually, it is rather plump!) I would be more comfortable in a chair with a bit more room for the seat.
I have a new photo to share that daughter Deanne sent to me. These are my beautiful girls, Jazzy and Janicee, at the local fair. Just two of my many blessings.
Now I think I should go get dressed so that I can go outside and see what the guys are doing. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
