Good morning. It's another beautiful morning that is going to be a real scorcher in a few more hours. For some reason though, the nights have been cool, which I'm very thankful for. It's 96F in the daytime and 66F during the night. That's a big, but hugely appreciated, drop in temperature.
Yesterday I managed to do a couple loads of laundry. Hopefully, today I can do another load, this time with the towels. I've been trying to launder all of Pogo's blankets to help keep his "itchies" down. In between loads of laundry, I spent some time going through stacks of magazines. Once I removed my ID from them, they could be put in the recycle barrel.
Late yesterday afternoon, I got a friend request from someone on Facebook that was such a wonderful surprise. When my kids were young, I took in some exchange students. One boy in particular, Ulf, was from Sweden and stayed with us for the whole school year. We stayed close for a few years, but then somehow drifted apart. I haven't seen or heard from him for so many years. Until I got this friend request from him. Wowee!!
I downloaded a couple photos of him to share. This first photo is Ulf and his dog, and it's what he looked like shortly after he graduated from High School. He attended our high school with my daughter Audrey (for his senior year).
And this is a photo of him today. Gosh, it's so good to catch up with him again. It's almost like finding a missing relative. Wow, the wonders of the internet!!! I'm so glad you're back in our life, Ulf. I've missed you.
Today maybe I'll spend some time with the shredder. Goodness knows, I have lots to shred. Then this afternoon I'll try to have a little nap. I need to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for my class this evening.
Tonight, Deanne and I are attending the first of two classes for gun safety. She wanted this for her birthday, so that's what we're doing. I just hope the building where the class is held is air conditioned.
I have another photo to share. DIL Janet took this photo of her sleeping kitties. Aren't they just the cutest?
Well, that's my news for this morning. Now it's time to see what sort of mischief I can get into today. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
