Gonna Be Slipping And Sliding For A While

May 10, 2018

Good morning.  It's really lovely outside today.  The sun keeps peeking out from behind the clouds, the temperature is fifty degrees headed for the low seventies, and there's a bit of a breeze.  Nice, nice, nice!

I have to tell you about a bargain I got a couple days ago.  Recently, I ordered a new batch of wee wee pads for Pogo.  Well, they arrived a couple days ago, along with another box that was quite heavy.  Yes, it was addressed to me, but I didn't remember ordering anything else from this company.  I opened the box to see if there was a shipping invoice inside, but there was not.

Yesterday, I called the company to find out if I was billed for the contents of this mystery box, or if they wanted it to be returned.  No, they did not charge me for it.  It was sent by mistake.  "So, why don't you just keep it and enjoy it."  That's what they said to me.  I said thank you, and you have a great day. 

So now I'm the proud owner of forty eight bottles of hand and body lotion!  How about that!!  I'll be slipping and sliding for quite a while to come.  Gonna lather up good every day.  Some other folks too.  I sent a few bottles home with DIL Janet last night.  We can slip around together. 

I went outside this morning to open the door on the greenhouse, and took a few photos while I was out there.  A few of the tulips have come and gone, and there's a few in bloom now.

Also coming into bloom are my lilacs.  This little bush has been trying so hard to grow these last few years.  Between being dug up and moved by the contractors building the porch, walked on and run over by the lawn tractor, and lots and lots of snow and ice, this little bush has persevered.  It's little, but it is beautiful!  Here are photos of the new buds and a few tiny blooms.  (so far!)

The mailman just came, and brought me two packages.  One of them is a Mother's Day gift from Audrey.  Oh dear, shall I open it?  Or should I wait until Sunday.  Such a decision!  I'll have to think about this for a bit.  It's not like it's Christmas.  I don't really have to wait for the actual day if I don't want to.  Oh dear, oh dear. 

When I get packages, I'm like a kid on Christmas morning.  It doesn't matter if it is something that I ordered myself.  It's just fun to get and open packages.  The other package that came today is a couple skeins of yarn from Herrschners to replace the two skeins that got damaged during shipping last week.  This is a great company!

Pogo and I had left over Chinese food for breakfast.  My little guy loves pork lo mien and pork fried rice.  I do too!  I had ordered this last night for our supper.  You know Pogo licked his plate clean!  I always order extra so that we can have more the next day. It's so easy to keep my little guy happy!

Now it's time for me to get busy and do a few things around here so that Pogo and I can sit out on the porch for a while.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Lucky you for getting to keep all that lotion. Wish it had been me. I use a lOT of it. As you age, your skin gets drier. Your flowers are so pretty.

He Edna,
Wow what a wonderful surprise with that lotion... can I say (Christmas Gifts???).... that would be a nice little gift to give to say Pogo's groomer, or other little people on your list or last minute gifts for ladies...

Your flowers are just gorgeous... Just love that lilac bush. My friend Joyce had the most beautiful yellow tulip bloom the other day. It is so gorgeous. I will ask her if I can send you the picture. She always says yes. She loves sharing her flowers.

You and Pogo have a wonderful day. That Chinese food sounds extra good to me this morning. I would love to have some for breakfast. Lucky you and Pogo. Give him love for me and I will talk to you soon. Have a super and awesome day... Hugs, Beth
