Oh yuk!! The snow finally caught up to us. It snowed through a good part of the night, leaving a light coating of white stuff everywhere. Sometime this morning it's supposed to start raining. Today and tomorrow will be a mix of rain and/or snow. I can't complain too much because I've been watching the Weather Channel, and they've been showing how really bad it is in other parts of the country.
(I took this photo as I was leaving work. It has been raining for a while, so a lot of the snow is already gone.)
Well, yesterday I did not get my Christmas tree decorated. Instead, I mainly had a rather lazy day. Today I will dig out the ornaments and get my tree done. I also have a few cards left to address and put in the mail. These are the ones that I had to check on address changes. After that, I want to finish wrapping everything for my last mailer boxes. These need to be in the mail by mid week.
It looks like I may have to work on Christmas Eve, but first I need to make sure I have a sitter for Pogo. Also, I need to make sure that someone will be coming in on Christmas morning at 7 a.m. to relieve me so that I can go home on time.
Today is Mandarin Orange Monday, and I have been playing around with a photo of my amaryllis from last Winter. I did not write down all the steps that I used, but there is quite a mixture of layers, filters, textures, colors and a gradient. I am not really into the grunge look, but it might make a pretty fabric pattern.
The Mrs has another beautiful new plant. It's a huge, gorgeous red poinsettia. I love these plants, but they are poisonous to animals so I wouldn't want one at home.
Well, I think that's about it for this morning. Pretty soon, I need to be packing up my stuff and getting ready to go home. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
