Good morning. Tis a bit cloudy outside, and the temperature is 47F degrees. Today we'll probably get up to around 50 degrees. Next Tuesday looks like it will be our warm day this week, with a high temperature of around 61 degrees. Outdoors looks like Sally Snowfall, only in yellow, red, orange and green instead of white. There are leaves everywhere. As soon as you pick them all up, they come down and cover everything again.
My grandson Kevin was here Friday, cleaning up all the leaves and storing the bags in the little shed. He even made me a whole leaf bag full of mulch. Today I will use the mulch to "winter over" my potted plants. That is, if it doesn't rain, I will. If it rains, maybe I'll wait till the rain stops before tending to the plants.
I want to wish everyone a huge thank you for making my birthday so wonderful. I got beautiful cards, gorgeous flowers and even a balloon. Yesterday, daughter Deanne came by with Janice, and took me out to lunch. We had a wonderful time. The restaurant gave me my choice of desserts for my birthday, and I chose a hot fudge sundae. When the sundae came, oh my!!! it was huge, and had three spoons in it. We tried, but could not finish it. I must say though, that it was simply delicious!! Here's a photo the waiter took of us.
And here are photo of my flowers. Oh my, they really are gorgeous!
My friend Beth made this beautiful Birthday layout. I have to laugh at all the little mice, considering I've been trying to chase one tiny mouse out of my house this past week. Thank you Beth, I love it.
I also got some rather bad news yesterday afternoon. I've been trying to reach Aunt Lucy by phone all week. A few days ago, I left a message on her son's phone, asking if she was alright. I did not get an answer back. Yesterday afternoon, I called again, and one of her sons answered the phone to let me know that my auntie had passed away a few days ago.
I will miss my Aunt Lucy very much. Our time together was very short, but I am so very thankful for the time we did have. God Bless and watch over you Auntie.
Before I take my leave, let me remind everyone to set your clocks back an hour if you haven't already done so. We're into Daylight Savings Time now. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
