Good morning. Today is gray and damp with bits of rain every now and then. It's a super good day to wear your ugly Christmas sweater. After all, it is National Ugly Sweater Day. I must say though, that most of the ugly sweaters that I've seen so far are rather pretty or fun looking.
Well, about the best thing that I did yesterday was to find a nice chair for Pogo. However, Santa said that he might not be able to get it here until after Christmas. His elves won't be able to start making it until close to Christmas. He did promise to bring it as soon as the elves were finished with it.
So, on that note, I went on-line and found two really nice blankets that I ordered for Pogo, so that he has presents to open on Christmas morning. After all, no respectful fur baby can ever have too many fuzzy blankets. At least that's what Pogo tells me.
I guess I'm not the only person to have problems with getting packages safely to their destinations. This has nothing to do with Aunt Lucy's package. The reason for not leaving her package had to do with safety, and she did finally get it.
One year I sent three large boxes to my son in Florida. After two weeks of them not showing up at my son's house, I went to the Post Office to find out what happened to the boxes. The first thing the Post Master told me was that most likely I had the wrong zip code on my boxes and that was why they had not been delivered.
I promptly showed him my receipt from when I mailed the boxes. The zip code for every package you mail shows up on your receipt. Had my zip code been wrong, the post master would have caught it at the time I was mailing the boxes and fixed it.
A few days later, all three boxes showed up at my son's house. My zip code had been blocked out on all of the boxes, and now a hand-written zip code was on each box. There is a hard lesson here. Always, always get your receipt, (and save it) and scotch tape over the address and zip code on your packages. I even tape over the return address. It's not fool proof, but it sure does help.
I did finish up the pink blanket yesterday. Actually, I put a couple extra rows on it. When I finish the baby cocoon, I'll probably make another little blanket. One can always use an extra baby blanket. Here's a peek at the pink blanket.
Today, I have another Christmas QP for you. I have such fun making them. This one features a couple of snow folks sharing their sweet berry bush with a little squirrel. Have fun with it.

Now I'm going to see about getting a few things done here. The next few hours will fly by, and soon it will be time to go grocery shopping. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
