MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Friday floods in

What a terrific gully washer of a storm we had from about 3:00 AM until just now, 7:15 AM. Poor Erma, my only dog to be openly scared of storms was glued to the side of my bed while the others just continued sleeping. I am delighted the rain has stopped as it nears bus-stop time at 8:10 AM.

I ordered my Walmart grocery delivery for Thursday night between 9:00 PM and 10:00 PM. At 7:15 AM, I am still without the groceries. At around 10:10 PM, I received a notification that there would be a delay. This has been some delay. I’ve had two previous deliveries which were right on the mark; however, a number of deliveries have been delivered to other houses, mainly next door at Mama Kay’s. I have also had some recent issues with Instacart where they delivered my groceries much earlier than what I had signed on. Some have been delivered as early as three hours before my scheduled delivery. Fortunately, there were no refrigerated items that needed immediate attention since I was at the park when they arrived. Another Walmart delivery was set on my front steps when the delivery instructions clearly stated the items were to be set in “the blue bin” and that described “blue bin” is marked for deliveries. This morning, there seems to be no concern on Walmart’s end that my groceries are to be delivered. Therefore, I shall cancel the order and reorder but I will be swamped once I leave the park today.

It’s a minor speedbump to my day but it is also a service for which I am paying.

I will stroll through the park until 1:30 PM and begin my weekend for which I am most excited to start.

Historian and author, C. J. King offered a fantastic presentation on Mary Harlan Lincoln, the wife of Robert Todd Lincoln, eldest son of Abraham and Mary Lincoln. She really brought home a number of falsehoods regarding the daughter-in-law to the Lincolns. C. J. lives in Jamaica, Vermont, not too far from Robert Todd Lincoln’s beautiful estate, Hildene, in Manchester, Vermont.

The wisteria continues to open up its blooms around the deck and the iris are still going strong out front but are showing signs of waning.

Be sure to flood your day with thoughts of making it great.
