Good mornimg. It's cloudy here, but warm. It was in the 50's all through the night (and raining), and today will be near 70F degrees. After tomorrow, it will start to cool down a bit. Am I complaining? Absolutely not!! I'm sure we'll get clobbered sooner or later with a bunch of weather, but for now it is nice.
I got the nicest surprise in my mail this morning. A Christmas card from a blogger friend. I took my laptop out to show it to Joe. Wow, what a huge smile it put on his face! Judy, I love it. Thank you so much. May you be blessed with all the joys of this Christmas season.
Well, last evening, DIL Janet came by and we had a wonderful evening. For supper, I cooked Pogo a hamburger and Janet and I had chicken pot pie. After supper, we exchanged gifts. Oh wowee! She spoils Pogo and me so! Pogo got a new fuzzy blanket, which he curled up in right away. I got a whole bag full of goodies including my own fuzzy blanket. You know Pogo and I slept all through the night wrapped up in our new fuzzy blankets.
I'm watching the Weather Channel, and the news is just wicked. You know, it's only been Winter for a few days and already we are up to "Winter Storm Goliath." Alphabetically, that's seven winter storms already. Gosh, I hope that's not an insight to the rest of the Winter.
The tornadoes are the scariest. Last night, some folks only got seconds for a warning, and the next thing you know, their homes and all their belongings were gone. God bless these folks for having the strength to stay and rebuild. I don't know if I could do that. Maybe when I was younger, but now? I just don't know.
I dug into my photo archives for a photo of our Amaryllis in bloom. This photo was taken when the plant was new, and still not very tall. This year, it has bloomed so much that it doesn't have any blooms left in it for this Christmas. This was the only time I saw one of these plants bloom while it was still short.
Today my hand and arm are not quite so sore. As long as I don't try to use them much. The hand still makes me say Ouch! But it hurts a bit less. Joe and I are going grocery shopping in a little while to pick a few things. Let's see how the hand does at the market.
I got an email this morning from a friend, with a link to a Christmas poem. It was absolutely moving, and I passed it along to my friends and family. I'll put the link here so that you can enjoy it too.
Santa Claus comes tonight folks. Put the kiddies to bed early, and don't forget to leave out a drink and a snack for Santa and his reindeers. Tonight, I will enjoy a cup of cocoa with Santa, and I've set aside nine bowls of water and nine apples for his reindeer. Something tells me that Pogo will sleep right through this visit.
Now it's time for me to get dressed, and ready to go grocery shopping. I hope everyone gets what they wished for this Christmas. Pogo and I wish all of you a Blessed and Merry Christmas. I'll stop by in the morning with another QP for you. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day. Ho Ho Ho!
Hugs, Edna B.
