Good morning. Wow, what wicked weather we're having. Yesterday was cold, but tolerable. Last night, the snow started and after a few hours it turned to ice pellets. Next the light rain and fog moved into our area. Today we are expecting warmer temps with lots more rain before the wicked cold creeps back in tonight. I'll be glad when storm Frona finally blows out to sea.
This morning there are all sorts of little footprints in the snow outside my door. I haven't yet figured out what sort of critter made the prints. It certainly does not look like they belong to birds or chipmunks. Oh well.
Folks, you may have noticed that I've had to turn on the moderator on the comments page. I'm hoping that this will get rid of the spammers for a while. In just two or three days, they dumped almost 2000 spams into some of the comment sections on this blog. It took a while to find and get rid of all of them.
Joe is busy this morning taking down their Christmas tree and putting all the decorations away. I'll be taking my little tree in a few days. Unfortunately, I will have to replace my tree because the cord gets too hot when you plug it in. I am very afraid of house fires, so I've only been able to plug in my tree for a few short times. Before I dispose of this tree, I will cut the cord off so that no one else tries to use it.
Friday afternoon, I dug out the jar I had been saving, labeled it and set it on top of the bookcase. I've already put one piece of paper in it. It's going to be fun reading all the bits of "happenings" that will be in the jar by the end of the year. (I took this photo before I put the slip of paper into the jar.)
I started cleaning up and putting away gifts and Christmas bags. Thank goodness I check all the bags before folding them up because I found a really precious photo in the bottom of one of the bags. The photo is a gift to Pogo from his friend Izzi. Pogo and I just love it!!
Last evening, I worked on the blue afghan. I'll have to take a photo of it to show how pretty it is. I'd like to finish this one before starting another new one. It would be nice to have a few of these finished and put away before vacation time gets here.
Today, I'm finally taping some programs on to DVD for daughter Audrey. One of the programs has eight one hour episodes, and I'd like to get this one finished today so that I can mail it off to Audrey this week.
Well, that's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
