Good morning. Tis a bit nippy this morning. Only 44F degrees at the moment. The sun is shining though, and the temps should reach the high 50's later today. Can't complain though. It is after all, Autumn.
Have you been looking at your calendar? Hanukkah is only twenty seven days away, and Christmas is less than two weeks after that. Thanksgiving is only seventeen days away. Basically, this all means that the New Year is less than two months away. Yeesh, time is slipping right by me.
I guess today I'll have to buckle down and start addressing the envelopes for my Christmas cards. This usually takes me a few weeks because I only do a batch of them each day. I also have to get serious about packing up my holiday boxes. Even though I start early on this stuff, I'm usually scrambling to get everything done on time.
Last night, I took a break from the neck warmers, and worked on a baby blanket. I'd like to get at least one of these finished before Christmas. One of the two new babies coming is due right around Thanksgiving, and the other is due in March. It looks like I'm going to be busy for a while.
Speaking of time flying, Jazzy's drama group will be performing "A Christmas Carol" in less than two weeks. Jazzy will be playing the ghost of Christmas Present. Here's their poster for the upcoming event. I'll be there at the Saturday afternoon performance taking lots of photos and videos.
I just had to take a small break and go outside with birdseed to fill the feeder. My little birds were peeking in the window to let me know that the feeder was empty. When I finish this post, I'll make up some more peanut butter bread and take that out to the treat holder. In these cool temps, the little birds need lots of food.
I've been watching the Weather Channel, and the weather isn't looking so good around the country. They've been showing videos of the flooding in Florida and other parts of the Southeast. Do you suppose all these wicked new weather patterns will ever slow down?
I'm watching a video showing the new road paving that is being done in Atlanta, Georgia. They are using bricks that soak up the water and let it pass through into the ground. Hmmm, is this a new idea? Do any of you remember the cobblestone streets from way back when? We had them when I was a little girl, but then progress came along and got rid of them. Now progress seems to be wanting to bring them back.
My friend Beth sent me a birthday card featuring one of the Halloween QP's, and I'd like to share it. What a beautiful card. Thank you so much Beth.
Joe cut his finger a couple of weeks ago at work, and instead of going to the ER to have it looked at, he did it the "man" way. His way. Unfortunately, even though he did his best to keep it clean, it got very infected and he finally had to give in and go to a clinic to have it checked. Now he is taking an antibiotic for the next ten days. Guys, it's very manly to have your cuts and other boo boos checked when they happen.
Well that's my news for this morning. Now I think I'll address a few envelopes and get started on my holiday boxes. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
