Good morning from soggy New England. Goodness, it rained sometime during the night, and now it has started up again. Hmmm, quite a difference from a few years ago. Here's a photo I took three years ago today while at the McDonalds drive thru one morning on my way home from work.
One of things that I miss about not working is all the opportunities I had for photo ops. The scenery and the wildlife between my house and work was always presenting me with chances for great new photos.
My little birds are beginning to line up by my window. One small sparrow is perched on top of the planter that is outside my door. I think I need to check their feeder to see if it is empty.
I'm back, Yup! The bird feeder was empty so I just went out and filled it. Now my little birds are happy again.
I'm watching QVC, and they are showing boxes of brownies and cookies. Oooooh, everything looks so delicious! No, I'm not ordering them, but they do look wicked good! Now I'm switching the channel over to Unsolved Mysteries. It's less fattening.
Last night, Deanne and Eddie delivered my box of baby things for baby Ali. Of course, the baby was asleep, but her mom has promised to send me some photos after she is awake. She did send us all this photo of Ali that was taken this past Sunday. Gosh, she's just gorgeous.
Well, yesterday proved to be a fruitful day for me. I did manage to wrap a few things, and get a couple of mailer boxes finished. Today, I'm hoping to get a few more packages wrapped, and ready for mailing. A few items that I had ordered did arrive yesterday, and now I'm just waiting for a couple more.
Tomorrow I hope to start mailing out my cards and calendars. It sort of feels like I'm getting things done in spite of all my procrastinating about getting started. Can you imagine, that there are only 23 more days till Christmas?
Now the only thing that is holding me up is trying to figure out what Santa can put under the tree for the dwarfs. It's rare for any of the dwarfs to ever say thank you, so I'm thinking that I might just make a donation to the local animal shelter in their names in lieu of gifts. Hmmm, this is sounding like a super idea. I did this years ago with family and friends who could not remember to say thank you, and it gave me a lot more money to spend on the homeless animals.
It's also time for me to start filling the Christmas shopping cart at our local Ace Hardware store with big bags of doggie and kitty food. Of course, I'll have to put in a few bags of treats too. After all, what's Christmas without treats?
A package was just delivered for Joe, and Pogo did his best to scare off the man who brought the package to the door. Have I mentioned what a good watch doggie he is? He may be tiny, but he is fearless!!
Well now that I've chewed your ear off, I think I'll get started on this new day. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
