It's almost time to say "Good Afternoon". Needless to say, I slept in as late as I dared this morning. After I fed Pogo his supper last night, I crawled into my comfy lounge chair with my own fuzzy blanket and promptly fell asleep.
There was really no point in putting on a TV program. I knew I was going to fall asleep, so I put the Weather Channel on instead. Throughout the night, I only got up for the necessary potty calls, and to change the pads under Pogo's Potty Patch. If his patch isn't clean, he won't use it. ( don't blame him)
It's not that yesterday was such a hard day. It wasn't. But it was hard on this old body. Too much standing and walking without an opportunity to take a little nap in the middle. I could not take a pain pill because they might make me sleepy and that just wouldn't do. So, I've decided that I won't be doing any more day shifts.
I was able to address another batch of Christmas cards yesterday while the Mrs was napping. So now, I think they are about three quarters done. I would like to get them finished up this week. In two weeks it will be Thanksgiving, and a couple days after that is December. Talk about time flying by! This year has just whizzed right by us!
Although most of the parades and celebrating took place over the weekend, today is Veterans Day here. It 's a time to remember all the men and women who have given so much so that we may enjoy the life that we have. A time to give thanks for the sacrifices that so many have made. A time for prayers for those who gave their lives so that we may be free.
Today is Mandarin Orange Monday, and I saved a couple of my "orangey" photos for today.
We need to enjoy, and be thankful for all the beautiful color that we still have on our trees. Pretty soon, all the trees will be bare, and the gorgeous colors will just be a memory to savor. Folks, if you still have some colored foliage, get out there and enjoy it.
Now it's time for me to get busy here and make an attempt at accomplishing one or two things before the day gets away from me. Today, I will set up the card table and get started wrapping things. For some reason, the mailer boxes don't fill themselves. I also need to start putting a program that I taped onto DVD's so that I can mail them to Audrey. So, on that note, I will leave you. Till tomorrow, be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
