I Just Love The Christmas Tree Shoppe!

June 23, 2017

Good morning.  Oh, and a beautiful morning it is!  At the moment, temps are in the low 70's, but will work their way up to mid 80's by early afternoon.  The sun is playing hide and seek with the clouds, and there is a little bit of a breeze.  It's just right for sitting out on the porch.

And wait till you see my porch now!  Yesterday, there was a Christmas Tree Shoppe flyer in the newspaper.  And lo and behold, right on the front page was a little bistro set.  And the best part?  It was on sale for $39.99.  Woo Hoo!

I called Deanne's house to see if someone could come over after supper and take me to the store to have a look at the bistro set and hopefully buy it.  Deanne and Janice came and drove me and Pogo to the store.  We found the little set, and it was perfect.  Somehow, the girls squished the chairs, box with table and all our bags (it's very difficult to shop there and not find things that you absolutely have to have) into the car and still left room for all of us to sit. 

When we got back to the house, Joe assembled the little table and Deanne and Janice got everything settled on the porch.  First, they put down the new indoor/outdoor carpet that I also found at the Christmas Tree Shoppe.  Oh...didn't I mention that I also found a really pretty carpet for the porch?  It was so pretty that I just could not pass it up.  Here's a photo of my porch now.

As soon as I finish my nebulizer meds, I'm taking my coffee and my crocheting, and heading out to sit on the porch.  Today the plant stand will go back to being a plant stand.  I have a begonia plant that is waiting to perch on it. 

I'll take my little recorder out with me and try to capture the sounds of the birds singing in the trees.  Yesterday, I had some music playing, and it seemed that the birds all sang right along with it.  I'll try that again today.  I absolutely love listening to the birds chirping and singing. 

Today, I have the new quick page that I promised.  Gosh, can you tell that I love nature?  haha.

Here is your download link:

Well, I've finished with the meds, so it's time to grab my things and head for the porch.  Pogo is already sitting by the storm door, waiting for me.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

That photo really shows how nice the finish for the porch looks. The porch really looks nice with all its new furnishings. I don't think I would be able to resist that new rug either Suzannee

How cute your little porch is. The carpet is just perfect with it. I would be spending a lot of time out there. Have a good day and enjoy your birds.

How lovely your porch is looking now! And that you found it all at the same time. Fantastic. Oh, now you will spend even more time there, it is so cosy looking.
Today we don;t have weather to be in the garden. Already yesterday temps dropped a bit, but it still was quite nice. Today it is just around 19-20 C, with clouds and just a bit too much wind. What a difference with two days ago!
But they say that next week it will be somewhat better again.
Now you have some great time at the porch(so sweet of Deanne and Janice to come right over to be of assistance)
Have a wonderful day.

Glad you feel like getting out and shopping. You did a nice job on the patio.
