Good morning. It's looking really beautiful outside my door this morning. The sun is shining and there's a lovely breeze which my flags are enjoying. I don't think I ever mentioned, but we have a flag hanging by each front door. Mine and the main house. It's a wonderful feeling to watch them sway and dance in the breeze. It's 73F degrees right now, and later temps will get up to the low 82's. Like I said, it's a really beautiful morning.
It's been a busy weekend so far. Yesterday, great granddaughter Alena celebrated her fourth birthday. Oh my, such a happy little girl!! She was on her best behavior all day, keeping a watchful eye on the stack of presents that she would get to open.
Folks, Alena is a truck and tractor sort of girl. And yup, she got lots and lots of trucks, and even a racing track with cars. She also got her own tool box (to help Grampy fix things around the house), some crafts and even a Barbie doll. Sad to say, Barbie will probably spend most of her time on a shelf or in the toy box.
Happy Birthday Alena. May all your dreams and wishes come true. Great Meema loves you. Here's a picture of Alena's beautiful birthday cake, a photo of her digging into a delicious chunk of the cake, and a photo of Alena opening her race track. (Audrey is Alena's Meema, so that makes me the "Great" one.)
On the home front here, we had a bit of excitement too. A little after ten o'clock yesterday morning, I received a phone call from the Police Department. My license to carry was there, and I could come in and pick it up. Wowzee!
It only took me fifteen minutes to get dressed, grab Pogo and drive to the Police Station. I even took a few of my target sheets with me to show to the Lieutenant. I'm quite proud of myself right about now. I'm not planning on running right out to buy a gun. Deanne and I want a lot more practice time at the shooting range first.
Speaking of the shooting range, we went there Friday afternoon, and my daughter Deanne was awesome! She got several bulls eyes!! I only got one, and one almost (on the line). We can't go to the range next Friday because Jazzy will be performing in a play, but we have an appointment for the following week.
Friday, I did not get to spend time with Aunt Lucy because she was going out to her club to play Bingo. She says she doesn't like Bingo, so she calls the numbers. I told her that I would try to come by for a visit early in the week.
A couple new charms that I had ordered came in the mail, so today I'm going to work on my bracelets for a while. After that, I think I'll spend some time on my laptop. I bought a few new scrap kits that I want to play around with.
Well, that's my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
