Good morning. Tis another cloudy day today, with the sun poking in and out from behind the clouds. Temps today and for the next few days, will be in the high 50's and low 60's. Now if only those temps could creep a wee bit higher, I'd be a happy camper.
Oh gosh, I just picked a tiny tick off my Pogo's ear. A couple nights ago, I picked one off the back of my neck. I guess the season is in full bloom. The Lawn Doctor called this morning to say that they would be spraying my yard tomorrow.
I called back to find out why they are just getting around to spraying my yard when they started spraying back in March. Their excuse was that they have so many customers that it takes much longer to get to everyone now. I told them their excuse was not good enough. We have had mosquitos and ticks for quite a while now.
I also had to call Driver's Elite. (similar to AAA) I renewed my membership back in March, and then got a letter welcoming me to their program. Hmmm??? I've been a member for many many years. Then a couple weeks ago, I got a bill from them asking for my renewal fee. Silly me, I almost paid it!! On the phone I'm being told that the system automatically sends out three notices to customers asking for their renewal fee. Even once you pay the fee, you will still get notices until all three have been sent. What kind of system is this?
So I guess today is my crazy crabby phone calls day. They say that into each life some rain must fall. Although this isn't wet rain, I hope it ends soon. I still have to deal with the letters from the health insurance about all the parts of the hospital bills that they are not going to pay. If it looks like I'm going to be paying the bulk of all these bills, then I may just have to drop the health insurance altogether. Jeesh! When it rains, it pours!!!
Today I have a cute photo of Pogo out on the porch. He's studying the mat in front of the storm door.
Here's a photo of my Bird Of Paradise plant. So far, I've manage to keep it alive long enough to put it out on the porch.
And finally, here's a close up of the new leaves on my Red Japanese Maple tree. They really are quite interesting.
I started this post hours ago, but those phone calls took up quite a lot of my time. So I think I'll make a quick lunch for Pogo and me before it gets too late. DIL Janet is supposed to be coming by later after work. On this happy note, I'll take my leave. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
