The Sun Goes In, And The Sun Comes Out

June 25, 2018

Good morning.  It's looking quite gray outside right now.  We did have some rain during the night, and it looks like it's getting ready to downpour.  But the weather forecast isn't calling for rain today.  Hmmm, we'll just have to wait and see.  Lord knows, we do need the rain.  The temperature here is about seventy, and that's about as warm as it will be all day.  Not bad at all, I say.

Yesterday I was busy all day, but I'm at a loss to think of anything that I actually did.  Before I retired, I was busy all day, but I was working and doing lots of other things.  Now I'm busy doing absolutely nothing.  Well, that's how it feels.  I'm not complaining.  I'm just befuddled at how this happens.

The mailman just came and he must be a substitute because he put all the mail out on the front porch instead of bringing it to my porch like the regular guy does.  Oh my, the sun just came out and oh boy is it ever bright.  Yup, and now most of it has gone behind a cloud again.  The clouds must be moving rather quickly because here's the sun again.  I guess it's going to be one of those days where the sun is in and out all day long. 

Today I have a few more photos from our visit to Plymouth Harbor.  The scenery there is just so pretty.  Everywhere you look, there is something to photograph.  There are several fishing cruise boats.  And I think there's one that travels to Provincetown and back. 

One of my favorite boats there is the little pirate ship.  It must be fun to go sailing in this tiny ship.

While we were walking around we spotted a plane with a banner flying way above in the sky.  I tried to take a photo of it but it was difficult because it kept moving.  Eventually, I got a shot of it.  At first I thought it was a large picture of a yellow truck, but I was wrong. 

At some point while we were walking, we stood beneath this beautiful tree for some shade while we took a few photos.  Now be honest, isn't this a really beautiful sight?  I think so. 

I haven't decided yet what Pogo and I will do today.  Probably more of what we did yesterday.  Hmmm, that doesn't really sound promising.  Right now, Pogo is nodding off beside me.  His tummy is full of delicious steak.  He had half of the steak last night, and the rest of it is for today.  I didn't save any of mine for today.  It was delicious and I ate it all up. 

I finally dug out my gift notebook so that I can get my 2018 pages updated.  I like to keep track of what I've already made or bought so that I don't repeat myself or forget someone.  There are times when I get rather forgetful, and this system has worked very well for me over the years. 

When my kids were small I used to make up a "Rainy Day Box" for Christmas.  It was full of things to keep them busy on those days when it was too cold or wet to go outside.  There were coloring books, paper dolls, crayons, paints, pens and pencils, pads of paper, puzzles, stickers, etc.  Now it's time to do this for the younger great grandbabies.  I think I have more fun with this than the kiddos do. 

This week, I think I need to tackle the backroom.  It's a catchall room and it needs to be organized so that someone can come in and re-plaster the ceiling.  So I guess this week I'll have to make a trip either to Ocean State Job Lot or WalMart to pick up some storage totes to put things in. 

Now I think I should get busy and do a few things around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantaulous day.

Hugs, Edna B

What a cute little pirate ship. I'm always torn between wanting to go visit places and the desire to just sit in my cozy little home. I feel like I should be doing more, but sometimes I think giving into the urge to do nothing is a good thing as well. It's been rainy here also and we went out to get lunch just to do something and stopped at Target for some supplies. I picked up a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle to work on. I enjoy the ones on the laptop also, but it's so much fun to work on a big one with lots of pieces.
