Good morning. The sun is shining, but it is cold today. The high temp is only supposed to reach about 41F degrees. There seems to be a new cold front taking over. Brrrrr! I was really hoping to open my little porch soon, but I guess that will have to wait a while longer.
Yesterday started off with a wonderful visit with daughter Deanne and Janice. And they brought me a beautiful bouquet of tulips (which I will photograph later to share) and a new solar thingy for my porch. I'll have to take photos of my new solar things too. Deanne also gave me a new one just before Easter.
Here's a photo that Deanne took of Janice and me. Isn't she just the sweetest? This young lady has a piece of my heart forever. To me, she's family and I love her.
After our visit, Pogo and I went out to do a few errands. First, we stopped by Town Hall so that I could get a new marriage certificate. I won't lose this one because it is going into my safety box. Next we went to Ocean State Job Lot to buy us a new greenhouse. I got the middle size because I'm planning on growing my tomatoes and a few plants inside it.
I am planning on putting heavy duty plastic under and around the bottom of the greenhouse to keep any small critters out of it. Or maybe I'll get a large piece of plywood for a floor, we'll see. It's still in the box because it's a bit too soon to set it up.
We (me and Pogo) also picked out two berry plants, blueberries and raspberries. I'll put these into the new greenhouse. Who knows, maybe we'll get to eat a few home grown berries this year.
When we got home, I immediately recorded my new receipts in my notebook for 2018 expenditures. Obviously, everything I keep track of won't be deductible on my taxes, but it will give me a good idea of how I'm spending my money and where I can make changes.
After work, DIL Janet stopped by with a huge basket of home baked cookies. And some Reece's candy (which I immediately put in the refrigerator). I should explain, I share the cookies and save the candy for my snacks. We ordered spinach pizzas for supper and had a fun visit. So all in all, Pogo and I had a very good day. Time spent with folks we love and a fun outing. It doesn't get better than this.
Now I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading before I start my new day. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
