Good morning. It's only 6 a.m., so it's still quite dark outside. I put the light out really early last evening, and got a whole night of sleep. That hasn't happened in a long time. Hmmm, I could get used to this.
It's rather nippy this morning. Only 29F degrees, with a high of 42 degrees expected later today. If I didn't know any better, I'd think that Winter is slipping in rather quickly. Blogger doesn't seem to like the cold either because it is acting sort of weird.
I got up to get Pogo's breakfast, and my page here was all faded out and not working. I clicked out of it and re-opened it, and it was still here, but the words have moved around. After a bit of finagling, I've got everything back where it belongs.
Yesterday afternoon, I had such fun playing on my laptop, making new Christmas QP's. Before I knew it, the afternoon had passed by and it was supper time. Time flies when you are having fun. So, the next four weeks I'll be posting Christmas QP's. Warning, I may have to post more than one sometimes, because making them gets addicting.
Also, next Tuesday is the start of the Worldwide Christmas Scrapbooking Blog Train. I'll be posting a freebie for you, along with lots of other scrap designers. Make room on your hard drive so that you can download all these wonderful freebies. I'll post more information next Tuesday.
Today, I have a fun QP for you. Notice Lola, and her new friend, Ms. Butterfly? I love whimsy, and I hope you can use this . Enjoy.

I found this poster on the web, and thought I'd like to share it with you. It's message is really wonderful. We don't need a reason to help someone, but if you do, then use this wonderful season of love and giving as your reason.
There are so many ways to help a stranger. When you are checking out at a fast food or coffee chain,pay for the order ahead or behind you. Notice if someone is sitting outside a market or store just trying to stay warm. Visit a nursing facility and visit with a few of the old folks. I'm sure you can think of so many ways to help someone.
I have a proposition for you. If you send me your story (and name and address) of something you've done to help someone needy, I'll make you a neck warmer. Just be sure to include your favorite color. If I can post your story, let me know. No names will be used. Happy Giving!!
Tomorrow's post may be short, but I'll be here to wish all of you a fabulous Thanksgiving Day. Now I think I'll make me another cup of coffee (this is a two cup morning), and see if I can't make some more headway with my wrapping. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
