Gosh, it's 6:05 a.m. and it's totally black outside. This is another part of Winter that I don't like. The mornings and late afternoons are very dark outside. Yesterday at 4:30 p.m. it was dark out. I so loved it when it was still daylight at 9 o'clock at night. The sad part of all of this is that it isn't even Winter yet!!
Well, yesterday I did go out to do a bit of shopping. I left with a shopping list of sixteen items. Two and a half hours later, I came home with five bags and only three items from my list. Well, dag nab it! I have to learn to stick to only items on my list!
This morning I turned to my trusty laptop and shopped on-line for a couple of the items that I was looking for yesterday. One of the things that I did get yesterday was the packing tape, so now I can finish packing a couple of boxes that need to be mailed out.
I think I have finally decided on another company to finish the work on the outside of the house. They will let me know today if they can start the work next Monday. If they can, they get the job. I'll feel so good when all this work is done.
Enough chatter. Today is Mandarin Orange Monday, and I have made a layout for today. It's not what one would call photo art or photography. It's more like a statement. This Thursday is Thanksgiving, and I am not happy about the stores being open for business. There does not seem to be any family morals in big business.
When I was a kid, the stores did not open on Sundays or holidays. One could spend the day going to church with the family, or getting together for a family holiday dinner. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have this back? Anyway, this is what prompted me to make a layout for today. I got the round orange sign from my daughter's facebook. The little kid waiting for his family to come home from shopping is my Pogo.
No one really needs to go out shopping on a holiday. Most of the big sales are available for on-line shopping. If you sign up on-line with all the stores in your area, they send you emails with sneak peeks of all their sale items, and they let you order these items on-line. Why would anyone want to fight hordes of shoopers when you can get all your items delivered right to your door?
Now I think it's time to make a cup of coffee and some breakfast. Maybe today I will start taping a couple of programs on DVD's for my daughter Audrey. Sounds like a plan! So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
