Good morning. I'm up early this morning. It's not daylight yet, but we've already had our breakfast. Well, at least I did. Pogo isn't touching his so I'll take a moment here to wrap it and put it in the refrigerator for later.
I'm back. Some mornings he wants his food right away, and others he waits till later in the morning. No biggie. That's what the fridge is for. To keep the food fresh till His Majesty is ready for it.
On Friday, Joe and I did our grocery shopping and I picked up six huge bags of dog and cat food, and some assorted packages of treats. Yesterday morning, we went to our local Ace Hardware store and dropped off all the pet food and treats. In a couple of days, all the donations will be delivered to local animal shelters.
Yesterday, well I can't think of much of anything that I accomplished yesterday. I was busy, just not doing anything spectacular. Well, one thing that I did was to go outside and take a photo of our Christmas rose. This gorgeous little pink blossom is growing on my pink rose tree.
I think the HDR setting on my cell phone is turned on because the rose is actually a bit lighter than it shows here. I'll have to check my phone. But isn't it a pretty gift? There's also another tiny bud on another branch.
I found another interesting crochet pattern on the web that I'd like to try once I've finished the projects that I'm working on. This one is a prayer shawl. Sorry the picture isn't all that great, but you can see how pretty it is.
I've set up my Christmas Angel, and placed some of the gifts around it. Later this morning, I'll finish putting the rest of the things with it, and then I'll take some photos. DIL Janet bought a cute new Christmas outfit for Pogo. I'll try it on him later and take some photos of that too.
My next big project is to start looking up flights for our upcoming trip to Florida. Jet Blue had some fabulous fares a few days ago, but they were only good if you booked during that two day period. Not knowing who was traveling when with me and Pogo, I could not take advantage of the super low prices. I'll have to get definite time schedules from Joe and Janet.
Today I want to wrap a few last gifts, then Pogo and I can just settle back and wait for Santa Claus to get here. Oooh, I forgot to mention, but yesterday I did pick up three presents for next Christmas and one birthday present. These have all been put away in my gift drawer.
Well that's about all my news for this morning. Before I go, I do have another Christmas QP for you. This one features an old time Father Christmas and a few of Nature's little ones who waiting for his arrival.

Now I'm going to head for the kitchen and make a fresh cup of coffee. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
