Good morning. Tis wicked early. I woke up at 4 a.m. and decided to stay up. After finding something interesting to watch on TV, I did a bit of crocheting on the new pink Granny Ripple afghan. Plus, Pogo and I had a bit of breakfast.
The sun is shining and today's temps should probably reach 70F degrees by this afternoon. I was going to wait until later this morning to type this post because I wanted to go grocery shopping first thing this morning. However, it's still too early to go shopping so here I am.
Yesterday my grandson Bobby was here working wonders in one of my little gardens. It's looking really nice now, without all the weeds. He's coming back Friday to do more work. First, he will power clean all the green off the two sheds. Then it's back to working in the gardens. There's a lot of weeding to be done. He is temporarily laid off from work, so I'm enjoying having him here to help me.
I took a walk around the yard to see what was growing so far. Wow, there's lots of plants coming up. My beautiful lilacs are finally coming into their own. Now they look like lilacs.
There's also lots of Irises budding. These are all yellow (when they bloom). Sad to say, they don't last very long, but oh my they are really beautiful.
On the other side of the house, all the lilies are getting quite tall. I imagine they will be next to start getting buds on them. Some of them have really thick stems. Hmmm, interesting! My poor gardens have been badly neglected these past couple of years, so there's lots of work to keep Bobby busy for a while.
While we were talking, I realized that he's never had a chance to go watch his sister perform on stage. So, I'm going to check on the dates of the summer show at the Cabaret, and I think I'll take Bobby and Amber to one of the shows. Gosh, I hope it works out because I'll really enjoy this.
This morning, Cliff is coming by to tune up the lawn tractor and make sure it is in good working order. I know it need one or two tire tubes, so he will take a photo of the make and size of the tires and text it to me. Then I shall order the new tubes and the tractor will be good as new again.
Today I have another new quick page for you. This one is a bit of a take on all the rain we've been having. Even the small critters are having to take shelter.
Here is your download link:
Now I want to start getting ready to go grocery shopping. By going this early, the store shouldn't be very crowded. After everything is put away, Pogo and I can enjoy some porch time. I'm off now. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
