Good morning. Today is another cloudy day here in New England, with temps in the low 60's. Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer though. Remember that song...Those April showers that come in May...well that's where we seem to be right abut now. I'll stay positive about it and say that at least now our reservoirs, ponds and lakes are looking much healthier.
Well, I took the day off from the computer yesterday. I slept a little bit late, then the kids came by (Kevin and Janicee). They brought me an iced coffee (Yum!) and offered to help me out around here. Kevin cleaned out a lot of the garden on the other side of the house and Janice started re-organizing my food pantry. And yes, I know how lucky I am!
I did not do a lot of anything yesterday, but I did write out a few bills that I will give to the mailman when he comes today. I also started working on a red, white and blue afghan. Hmm, I might just keep this one for myself. I love the colors.
Here's a photo of Pogo resting, and watching something fun on TV. He's beginning to look like a wooly lion again so maybe it's time to make an appointment to have his hair trimmed.
Today is trash and recycle pickup day. This will keep Pogo busy barking at the big trucks until the mailman gets here. He really loves barking at the mailman.
Dwarf Helen just came back from doing some errands and asked if Pogo and I would like to go shopping at the Christmas Tree store. Well, yes we would! So I'll have to get dressed soon so we don't keep her waiting too long. This is one of my favorite stores.
When the sun was shining a few days ago, I took some photos of the yellow irises and my wax begonia plants. It's so pretty around here when the sun is shining.
Deanne and Eddie have a chain link fence across the front of their property. Yesterday, a car came crashing into the fence, destroying a whole section of it and even hitting a portion of their front porch. Here's hoping the insurance companies don't drag their feet on having the repairs done.
I remember my old house and all the times when a car or truck would hit, or almost hit, the side of the house. I lived near a bar and the patrons weren't always sober when they came out to get in their cars and drive away. One night one of their cars did hit my house right by a window. My son was sitting in a chair (inside the house) by that window and could have been hurt.
The next day I went to a salvage yard and bought a whole truck full of iron posts that were six feet tall and six inches wide. The posts were filled with cement. I had a construction crew install these ugly iron posts along the whole side of my house. Now if any cars or trucks decided to hit my house, they would only be hurting themselves.
Well, it's time for me to get dressed now. Pogo is looking forward to going for a ride in Dwarf Helen's car. Me too! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
