Good morning. Wow, where do I start? Yesterday afternoon, a package arrived. It was another one from my Secret Santa. Boy oh boy! I love opening packages! Of course I had to open it. My goodness, it was chock full of presents!
Joe and I were on our way out to do a couple of errands and go food shopping, but I just had to open at least a couple of the presents inside the top of the box. This would keep me all bubbly until I got back home from shopping.
First thing I did when I got home was to finish unpacking and opening all my new presents. Oh my, such wonderful goodies. There was lots of pretty things (background papers, words art, tiny elements to glue on, etc) for scrapbooking, a wonderful magnet for my fridge (it says "I Love to Shop), a big pad for writing reminder notes, (I LOVE paper!), a purse size calendar, several packages of Reindeer Noses, a fabulous mug filled with the ingredients and recipe for Snowman Soup, a package of extra makings for this same tasty soup, chocolate dipped candy cane stirrers, a snowman jar with snow and a car with a Christmas tree on it's roof inside the jar, a package of Christmas decorations for scrapping, my favorite candy "Mounds" bars, and a tin filled with home made cookies and fudge and brittle.
I am feeling so loved and well hugged! Wow! I do not know yet who my Secret Santa is, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you, Thank you. I think I got the best Secret Santa. I just love all my presents, and the first thing I did after I fed Pogo his supper was to sit back in my lounge chair with my new mug filled with hot Snowman Soup. Mmm, Mmm, Mmm.
I am still working on figuring out who you are. All the packages came from different addresses, so the return address isn't helping me much. But I will keep trying to figure it out. Oh wow, I can't get this huge grin off my face!
While Joe and I were out doing errands, our first stop was at the Post Office to mail off the last of the mailer boxes. Then we headed over to Ocean State Job Lot to buy some big bags of dog food. They did not have any cat food so I'll have to pick some of that up next week. Next we headed for Ace Hardware Store, where we dropped off a large bag of old blankets and the new bags of dog food. These will be distributed to the local animal shelters.
While we were at Ace Hardware, we stopped to look at and admire the new snow blowers that were on display. Of course, we fell in love with the big one! There was no leaving this store until that snow blower was ours. We just had no way to bring it home with us. It was too big to fit in the car. So this morning, a friend with a truck will take Joe back to the store to pick up the snow blower and bring it home. Thank you Cliffie!
Giggle, giggle,. I am watching a Hershey Kisses ad on TV. The Kisses are playing Jingle Bells and Pogo is watching and barking at them. He is just too comical some times. He has this fabulous little growl, and if barking doesn't get his point across, he will give out a wicked little growl. Oh gosh, you just have to love this little guy!
Dee Dee and Eddie are on their way over here, and when they get here Pogo will do his "Happy Dance" all over the room until "Auntie" picks him up and gives him big hugs. He just loves his "Auntie".
There is more fun from yesterday to chat about but I'll save that for the next post. It's time now for me to get dressed. (Oh dear, lol, that same Hershey Kisses ad is on again, and Pogo is sitting here staring at the TV and barking and making little growl sounds. I just love it! So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
