December 12, 2010

It's 5:50 am, very dark outside, and I'm still at work. The Mrs. has been sleeping soundly, and I've been catching up a bit on some of my emails. My shopping rush has finally quieted, and I'm down to one family and some Santa things to put under the tree for the dwarfs.

Yesterday morning I made it to the post office with my arms bulging with boxes to mail. Actually, they were all in three large plastic bags and I was trying to carry all the bags at the same time. It got a bit awkward when I had to stop to open doors (3 of them to get inside), but then a nice gentleman opened the doors for me. Sometimes it pays to be old!!

I was doing pretty good until the clerk said "That will be $-----"!!!!! I almost croaked, but there was a long line in back of me and it would have been very embarrassing. So I smiled and said "No problem" and handed over my money. He said "Thank you, and you have a nice day." I said "Oh I will, and I'll be back in a couple of days with more boxes."
*
I just have two boxes left to mail, and the rest I can deliver or put under the tree. I declare, next year I will have to get better organized. This last minute rush is not for me. When I was younger, I would be done with all my shopping, wrapping and packing a couple months early. But now I seem to be doing well to finish up before Santa gets here.

The highlight of my gifts is my new calendar for 2011. I am very pleased with how it came out. So I think next year, I will set up a separate folder for calendar photos. I can add photos to it all during the year, and hopefully, have my next calendar made up a couple of months before the holidays. That would be nice.

Today, I pulled out a couple of fun photos from this past summer. Even though I love watching all the birds, I must admit that some of them can be quite intimidating to the smaller birds. I know it's not nice to bully anyone (or thing) smaller than us, but I thought these photos were quite comical.

Now it's time for me to finish up a few things here before I start getting ready to go home. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a marvelous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
