Good morning. Tis sunny and a wee bit cool outside my door this morning. Alas, Autumn has taken hold here, and the warmer temps are done till next year. Pretty soon, I'll have to start counting the days till next Spring. I'm not a big fan of Winter and cold weather. I do love the holidays though.
Well, yesterday was sort of quiet here. After washing the dishes, I started going through a lot of paperwork, magazines, etc. and began sorting it all into three piles. One for the recycle bin, one for shredding and one to keep. I guess you could say it was a productive day as I put two bags of stuff out in the recycle bins, and filled a white trash bag of stuff for shredding. I only kept one little plastic bag of stuff.
I guess I'll be storing the white trash bags of shred material on the porch over the Winter. In the Spring, Deanne and I should have enough of it bagged so that I can call the shred truck to come and shred everything all at once.
One of the things that I kept was a letter from the facility where Laura Jean lives. Every now and then, her personal aide, Ashley, sends me a letter with some photos to let me know how Laura Jean is and what she is busy doing.
The day this letter was written, Laura Jean and Ashley had been busy shredding some paper goods. In the photo, Ashley is holding up a bag to show how much shredding they had accomplished. (See, I'm not the only one shredding!)
In this photo, Laura Jean is showing off a new pair of sunglasses. They make her look so glamorous!
Another thing that I did yesterday was to try to finish addressing all my Christmas card envelopes. I almost made it! I got down to the last six, and realized that I only had four cards left (and six envelopes). I counted everything twice, and yup, I'm short two cards. No problem, I called the printing company and they are going to send me ten more. They can't do two, but all ten will be at no charge. Awesome!
While Pogo and I were out in the yard a couple days ago, I took some photos of the new blooms on the pink rose tree.
At this time of year, these blossoms are a welcome sight. Before I accidently killed off the yellow rose tree, it blossomed right up till Christmas. One of these days, I'll have to see about getting another yellow rose tree. It was such a beautiful sight to see when it was full of blossoms.
Last night, I brought in my house plants from the porch. Joe brought the mosquito plant in and set it up in the living room out in the house. After a few cold nights, it will be time to dig up my dahlia bulbs and put them up for the Winter. This won't be difficult because they are planted in large pots.
Last night, I went as far as I could on the green afghan. I could not find one of the colors that I needed in the local stores, so I had to go online and order it. It should be here in a few days. I guess in the meantime, I might start another afghan with some of the new yarn that I got recently. I have to keep the hands busy.
Well that's my news for today. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
