Oh beautiful sunshine, it's so good to have you back! It rained all day yesterday and took away all the snow. We didn't get all that much snow, though any snow is too much snow for me. A few towns over got six inches of snow so we really were lucky.
I took today off from work, and it felt good not to have to get up early and go out. I did go out earlier with Pogo, but then we could crawl back into out toasty little bed. I also traded a day during Thanksgiving week with a girl at work. I will work her Wednesday, and she will work my Friday.
I have to start thinking about what to cook for Thanksgiving dinner. Some of the dwarfs will be staying here at home that day, and I always have a dinner for anyone who is home. I'm leaning towards a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, but first I want to make sure that everyone wants turkey.
Today I am going to make corn chowder. It's been so many years since I've made it that I won't offer it to anyone until after I taste it. Funny, I cooked for so many years but got quite spoiled while my brother was living with me. He was such a great cook and he loved being in charge of the kitchen. As long as I don't have to bake and frost a cake, the chowder should turn out okay. lol.
I really have to get serious about making up my Christmas cards and next year's calendar. Time is flying by, and I really need to have these things already printed by the end of this month and ready for mailing.
I played around a bit last night with a photo of a tiny rosebud, and I rather like it as a piece of photo art. I think it's the colors and lines that are so pleasing.
Now I really must get a move on. I've procrastinated for so long about doing any housework that it's beginning to annoy me now. But, I've promised myself lots of playtime on the computer once I make a healthy dent in the household chores. I also want to box up some of the holiday gifts so that I can stack them in a corner until it's time to mail them. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
