Good morning. Well, the sun is shining again and the temps have gone up a few degrees. We should make it into the high sixties today. A super step in the right direction! I seem to have picked up a slight chill in these old bones, and I'm needing the warmer temps to chase it away.
Yesterday was rather quiet here. I washed some dishes, displaced a few dust bunnies, watered the plants, etc. Nothing exceptional. But I'm not complaining. It's rather nice not to have to worry about getting things done all the time. I do wish my energy level was a bit higher though.
DIL Janet came by after work yesterday. We had a nice visit, although I've developed a really bad habit. Every now and then I nod off to sleep for a little bit. Janet's a sweetie though, she just crochets and waits for me to open my eyes again. Then we chat on as though nothing happened. I may have to take a nap earlier in the day when she is coming by. I love my visits with her, and I feel bad about nodding off.
This morning, I came across a new scrap store. I checked it out, and they have some really nice scrap kits. The prices are reasonable so I bought a few kits. If you'd like to check it out, they are called "Dance In The Rain Scraps."
Today I have some photos of my plants. I have two on my bottom step as a welcome. These are the Coreopsis and the White Petunias. They are sort of a cheerful "Hello" to anyone coming by.
We had to cut down the huge rose bush that is by the laundry room door because it was getting so unruly. Plus a lot of the wood stems on it were actually dead. Already, I miss it but there seems to be some new growth coming up from the ground around it. One shoot from it already took hold a few years ago and is looking really great this year.
Here is the new bush now, and a close up of the little white flowers. It's hard to believe that this used to be a gorgeous yellow rose. But the root plant is also beautiful.
One of the new plants, the Double Impatiens, is one I haven't seen before, and it is simply gorgeous! I think it's time to re-pot it and put it on the porch so that I can enjoy looking at it all the time.
Ooo-wee! The mail just came, and in it was an envelope from Omaha Steaks advertising their new $19.99 sale. The last time I bought some $19.99 sale items, Pogo and I pigged out on pot roast and corned beef with cabbage. I can't wait to see what's on sale now.
Speaking of Pogo, my little doggie is oh so unique! I have never met a dog who could pee underneath his pee pads. But my Pogo can! I check his pee pads frequently so that I can change them when he uses them, but sometimes they stay dry for a long time. I have learned now to look under the pee pad, just in case. And yup, so many times, there's a puddle underneath the pad. Now I ask you, How does he do that?? Hmmmm?
Well, my coffee mug is empty, and Deanne just texted me to say that she will be here in a little while for a visit. I guess it's time for me to get busy here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
