Good morning. It's cloudy right now, and warm. But soon the sun will be shining and the temps will be in the 90's. Our nights have been warm and sticky, but they should start cooling down a bit by tomorrow night.
I have a funny story to share. Yesterday, while I was sitting here typing my post, I noticed a little bird sitting one of the recycle bins outside. Something was definitely capturing his attention because he stayed in that spot for the longest time.
When my post was finished, the little bird was still sitting in that same spot, so I grabbed my cell phone and took his photo. Usually any movement near my door will make some of the birds fly away (and then they come back), but not this little bird. (he's near the bottom right corner of the white trash bag.)
I finally went out to the kitchen in the main house and looked out the window there for a closer view. Well my goodness, this wasn't a little bird at all. It was the corner of a black trash bag that was behind the white trash bag. Well now, that solves the mystery of why the little bird would not move from this spot.
My new blog book arrived in the mail yesterday. So I spent the next hour looking through it. I have to say that I'm really pleased with my collection of blog books. Here's what the front and back covers look like.
I've been cooking on the new one burner hot plate that I bought last Friday. I don't want to set up the induction burners until Eddie is finished working on the new counter and cabinet. He could not come by last evening because there was a family emergency.
Kevin and Jasmine and two friends were coming home from the beach when an axle on Kevin's car broke. My grandson stayed calm, and was able to move his car over to the breakdown lane before the axle snapped and his wheel flew across the highway. None of the kids were hurt, and no one on the highway was injured by the wheel.
Someone Up There was watching over them. I am so thankful. I am also so very proud of my grandson Kevin for staying calm while he maneuvered his car across the highway to safety.
I have a cute photo that I took Saturday of three of my grandchildren. Shanna was going to a "80's" themed party, and stopped by to pick up her brother, Stephen. Kevin went out to chat with them for a while, so of course Grandma grabbed her phone to get some photos. In order, they are Stephen, Shanna and Kevin. (Shanna and Stephen are two of my son Gary's six children.)
Last night, I was able to put a few more rows on the blue afghan, so now it only needs thirty six more rows to be finished. Yeah!! I'll be glad when these last two "must finish" afghans are done because the arthritis in my left hand has been acting up a bit lately.
I need to do a bit of research on the antibiotics that I have had to take this past Spring. Sometimes they can cause swelling or tearing of a tendon, especially if you are over 60 or if you take steroid medication. (you can read up about this on Google)
In the past, when I had to take these antibiotics, I had a problem with two of the fingers on my left hand. They were numb and tingly, and this did not get along so good with the arthritis. It took two years to clear up. Now it is back, only a bit more uncomfortable. On my next orthopedic appointment, I'll talk to the doctor about this.
Well it's time to pay some bills, so I'll take my leave now. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
