Good morning. I do believe it's going to be another sticky warm day. Although, the weather report says it won't be as sizzling as yesterday was. Well, at least that's good.
This morning, grandson Kevin will be here to pick up Pogo and me, and we're going to visit with Aunt Lucy. She was mentioning a while ago that she would like a new address book. I found a really nice one on Amazon for her that I will bring with me today. It has large print and a bigger space to write the names and addresses on. I hope she likes it.
Well, yesterday the workers showed up around 7:15 a.m. to work on the porch. I went out to the bank and to do a couple errands around 10 a.m. and told the men that I would be back in a couple hours. I got back a few minutes after 12 noon, and they had already packed up and gone home. I have yet to see these guys work an eight hour day.
However, most of the framing on the porch is done. Now I will pick up a wood sealer, and hopefully get it on all the wood and dried before Monday. Hmmm, maybe Joe will help me with this. Here's a photo of the progress on the porch.
All our tiger lilies are starting to bloom now. Gosh, I love all the gorgeous orange color. It's so cheery and welcoming.
While I was out yesterday, I picked up a few more things for the porch. I found a cute little "Welcome" sign to put over the open stairway, and a couple of comfortable chairs to sit on. I also found a wonderful welcome mat with doggie paws all over it. I even picked up a couple small plants to put on the top of the railing. Next, I think I'd like to get a grass carpet for the floor. Am I having fun? Why, yes I am!!
The rest of the day, Pogo and I stayed indoors in front of the fans, trying to keep cool. Every now and then I would put the A/C on to cool the room down. I don't leave it on for very long, because I don't want to get sick. The last time I sat too long in a room with the A/C going, I got a bad cold that turned to pneumonia. My daughter Audrey has the same problem with the A/C.
Enough of my babbling. I have another quick page for you. This one features a lovely waterfall. Oh my, wouldn't I like to be sitting near that waterfall right now!! Enjoy.

Now it's time for me to get dressed so that I'll be ready when Kevin gets here. I'm looking forward to this visit. So, till tomorrow, Y' all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
