Good morning. Well, it rained all day yesterday, not to heavy though. Just enough to make us get out the little rubber boats for navigating the driveway. Just kidding! Although it was a wet gray day, it was warm enough to leave the inside door open all day. This, of course, meant that Pogo spent a good portion of the day sitting on his blanket by the door and watching the antics of the birds and squirrels.
This morning it is snowing. The flakes are getting bigger and are coming down faster, so we could get a bit sticking to the ground. I'll just wait and see what the rest of the day brings. Of course, the windshield cover is not on my car as I was expecting rain for today.
Later today, I do have to pick up a few groceries, so hopefully we won't get too much snow. I also want to make a stop at the Post Office to send off a few of these boxes. The rest can go tomorrow.
Yesterday, Joe brought home some materials to build a post to set the new bird water bowl on. I'm hoping we can get this set up by the weekend. The post will go inside the hedge outside my window. There is an awning over this window so the birds will be protected from any bad weather while they enjoy the water.
I've been watching the Jewelry Television channel all morning, and I've been drooling over all the beautiful colored diamonds. Especially the yellow diamonds. Oooooooooo! No, I've been very good. I have not called in to order any, but oh my they are simply beautiful!
I used to have a lot of beautiful jewelry, but several years ago all of it was stolen. Except for the two rings on my fingers. It's because of this that I can resist buying much new jewelry. It's hard to steal what is not there.
Well, yesterday I finished decorating my Christmas tree, and got it all set up, complete with presents and my new Christmas Angel that daughter Deanne had given me. Both the tree and the angel have optical lighting so the colors keep changing. It's really quite pretty.
I also took a photo of the Dwarfs' Christmas tree. The lights were out except for the tree. One of the dwarfs was watching a program on TV. This photo was taken with my phone. I'll have to take one with my camera to see the difference in clarity.
Last evening, I cooked the chicken. It was skinless and boneless. I cleaned it, dipped it in whipped eggs, rolled it in bread crumbs and cooked it in a bit of olive oil. DIL Janet had already called to say that she had to work very late and would not be here for supper, so I decided not to cook the pasta and the sauce. I have to say that Pogo and I enjoyed our chicken very much.
I got a late start this morning, and it's almost time to make some lunch for my little guy. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.
