An Umbrella With Holes In It?

August 2, 2018

Good morning.  It's looking gorgeous outside my door, but today is going to be blistering hot with temps in the high nineties.  Right now, it's eighty degrees and sunny with a wonderful breeze keeping things a bit comfy.  The air is heavy though, not good for breathing.  I've already gone outside to open the greenhouse and water all the plants. 

As much as I don't want to go out today, Pogo has an appointment at the salon at noon.  I'll have to call ahead to make sure the groomer is there and on time.  Otherwise, we'll just have to reschedule.  It's good that my car has an A/C.  Otherwise, we would not be leaving the house.

DIL Janet came by yesterday after work, and brought some scrumptious desserts with her.  Yum, yum.  I had planned one thing for our supper, but instead we ordered steak and cheese subs.  Mine had green peppers on it.  Oh my, that was simply delicious!  After supper, we crocheted, watched TV and caught up on all the latest girl talk.  Our visits are priceless.

Yesterday, the new "Better Brella" that I had ordered arrived.  I was really excited to open the package to see it.  I ordered one with a large sunflower pattern on it.  When I opened it, I noticed that there were little holes punched in it all around in a pattern near the top of the brella.  Now why in the world would there be holes punched into an umbrella.  The whole idea is supposed to be to keep the rain out.

I called the company, and they are sending me a new Brella.  Thankfully, I saved the box mine came in so now I can package it up and return it.  It looks like maybe the pattern was supposed to be stamped on the inside of the umbrella, but possibly the stamper was too sharp and cut right through the material.  Let's hope the replacement Brella doesn't have any holes in it.

Today I thought I might share more photos of some of the flowers in my yard.  Here we have red Knock Out Roses, lavender Rose of Sharon,  white Petunias, yellow Lilies and pink Double Impatiens. 

Now I think I'll get a nice cold glass of pink lemonade and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay cool and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Love your pretty flowers. The heat took a toll on mine. However, we are below a 100 today.

I just don't understand why you wouldn't want an umbrella with holes in it! Ha, ha! Glad you were able to return it. Your flowers are gorgeous!

Oh no:( Just can't have an umbrella with holes, especially when rain falls constantly here lately! I think you should go out and cut a beautiful bouquet:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
