Good morning. It's a gorgeous day here in my little part of New England. The sun is shining, there's a tiny breeze and the temperature is 78F degrees with 47% humidity. It will get up into the upper eighties this afternoon. As long as the humidity stays low, it will stay nice.
The mailman came and brought me another big bunch of junk mail. I'll go through it and weed out all the junk. I've been trying to keep up with it on a daily basis so that it doesn't pile up again.
I got a late start today because I was up half the night. I made good use of my time up and paid some bills. I also cleared a few books off my bookshelf and put them in a bag for Good Will. Every little bit helps. I even had enough energy left to wash a batch of dishes. Of course, after all that I fell asleep.
The other day while Deanne and I were out shopping, I picked up a two burner stove cooking top. Yesterday, I cleaned off my counter and got all set to give the new burner top a try. Oops! Upon reading the instructions that came with it, I found that it was only for "light boiling" and "warming up" foods. Huh??? Just what exactly is "light boiling?"
So I did my best to stuff the unit back into its box. It will have to be returned. Then I went online to Amazon and found one that is for normal cooking and ordered it. I should have done this in the first place. My new cooktop will arrive either Wednesday or Thursday.
My scrawny tomato plant is trying once again to bear fruit. There's a new tiny tomato on it, and this morning I noticed a second tiny tomato. Woo Hoo!
Friday, when Deanne and I got back from shopping, I noticed how beautiful my Rose Of Sharon bush was with all its new blossoms. I took a couple photos with my cell phone and got a lovely surprise when I looked at the photos. I had caught the sun's rays shining down onto the bush. Just beautiful!
Last evening, Pogo and I polished off the Prime Rib that I had brought home from the Cabaret. I must say it was simply delicious! Oh yum yum! Pogo ate at least half of it. I guess he thought it was yum yum too!
Today I'm hoping to have enough energy to start a bag for the Big Brother, Big Sister folks. Then I'll give them a call to see when they will be coming by next. It's not easy getting rid of things when you've had them for so long, but the time has come to downsize.
That's my news for today. Now I think I'll have a look in the fridge to see what's for lunch for Pogo and me. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
