Good morning. Tis gray and wet outside, with a lovely breeze. The temperature is 69F degrees, and will reach the early seventies later this afternoon. The coolness is a nice change from all the heat we've had.
Late yesterday afternoon, we had thunder and lightning and heavy rain. I took photos of my phone's weather app. This is what the next few days look like at the moment. Hmmm, seems we are in for a bit of the wet stuff.
My hubby and my brother shared the same birthday. They both loved lobster. So every year on their birthday, I would cook them a big lobster dinner complete with corn on the cob, potato salad, garden salad, melted butter, nice cold beer and anything else they wanted. Happy Birthday guys. I miss you.
Yesterday was a good day for me, so Pogo and I went shopping at Ocean State Job Lot after we dropped Deanne off at her work. On the way home, we stopped by the bank and then on to McDonalds for some take out supper. Yup, it was a very good day.
I think maybe I'd like to plant more Hosta in my yard. I have some, and it is so pretty now.
Usually the flower stems stand up quite tall, but these last two heavy downpours of rain have knocked a lot of the plants down. Still, my Hostas are very pretty.
I have good news to share. My tomato plant has finally sprouted a few little yellow flowers. Woo Hoo! I guess there's still a chance that I might grow a tomato or two! Sad, sad, sad. What sort of nut case gets all excited over a garden producing one tomato? I guess just special folks like me. I get excited watching little birds splashing and bathing in a puddle, and growing even just one tomato gives me enough hope to plant another tomato plant next year. Yup, sad!
BUT, my little dog loves me just the way I am. And that's good. More than good. But then all you folks with fur babies of your own know exactly how I feel. I wouldn't trade my little guy for anything. My guardian angels were watching out for me the day Pogo came to live with me. He's been such a joy to me.
Okay, enough of my babbling. I'm off to do a bit of blog reading, and I want to call Deanne to see if she wants to do any grocery shopping or other errands. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
