New Clothes Are Such Fun!

March 23, 2021

Good morning.  Gosh, it's almost lunchtime!  I came on here hours ago to type my post, and got side-tracked.  First I thought I should pay some bills and get them out to my mailbox so that the mailman could take them.  I finished before the mail normally is delivered here, and OH NO!  The mailman had already been and gone.  

Lesson learned.  Write out the bills at night and put them out before 9 a.m.  When will I ever learn?  This is sort of like Murphy's Law, right?  If I put the mail out early in the morning, the mailman doesn't deliver until just before 6pm.  That happened just last week.  Ah well, there's always tomorrow.

Today I have some adorable photos to share.  Deanne and Eddie took their grandchildren shopping the other day for some new clothes.  Sears was having an awesome "closing" sale.  This is Xander and Aurora.  Xander is showing a talent (and joy) for photo posing.  Maybe he'll make a great model some day?  These are just so fun!

The kids couldn't wait to get home and try on all their new clothes and have their photos taken.  The next day, they made paper Easter Bunnies to hang on the wall.  Crafts is always fun time.

Yesterday, Deanne came by after work and vacuumed my porch and dusted things off so that I can sit out there this week.  We have some nice days coming and it's going to feel so good to sit out there.  Thank you so much Deanne.  I really appreciate all the nice things that you do for me.

I ordered a couple hanging pots that will fit over the porch railing.  I'm going to put a couple of my house plants in these.  If this works out like I hope it will, I'll order a few more pots so that a few more house plants can live outdoors for a few months.

That's my news for today.  Now I'm off to read some blogs.  So, till next time, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Never mind about the bills, I don;t thnink it will be a problem that they are picked up tomorrow.

Those kids look adorable and yes, Xander really has a way of posing, just like a professional.

Nice that your porched is cleaned and ready to be used, if the weather will be good for it, take adavantage and I think it will look great those pots on the railing. Lots of house plants do like to be outside in summer. Should be lovely decor.

It was rather chilly here today, only very late in the afternoon there was some sun, but when I was out it didnlt feel really springlike. Next days it should be better.

Have a lovely day and stay safe.

The kids are adorable. What cuties! I do the same with mail. I have a mailbox outside of my building and the pick up is at 1:00 pm. I always seem to miss the mail truck by a few minutes. Of course I need to get my mail done and out earlier. Thanks for the reminder and have a great Wednesday.

Lucky and obviously happy kids showing off their new duds. Like many others, I have not been new clothes shopping in so long and honestly don’t need any since old clothes are doing just fine these days. Many stores closed dressing rooms which would have made it harder because I am someone who cannot buy without trying on first. Nice that Deanne swept the porch so you will be able to enjoy some outside time in the coming warmer weather this week, Edna.

Aww, Xander and Aurora are so cute in their new outfits. I live in a big city and every year before school begins, my brother visits with his family for the weekend so that his son and daughter can shop for their new school clothes. My niece loves to model all her new outfits for everyone after her clothes shopping has been completed. It sounds like your porch is ready for when the nice weather arrives:)
