Good morning. It's warm this morning, 57F degrees, and wet. The rain started late yesterday afternoon, and continued all through the night. At the moment, the rain is taking a small break. It's okay though because my porch is ready for closing. Joe vacuumed it yesterday and covered everything over with plastic.
We just have to put the screen covers up now and cover the front section with heavy plastic. I'll have to go to Home Depot this week and get a large roll of the heavy duty plastic. This will be a pleasant outing for Pogo and me.
Well, yesterday came, and so did my nephew. I was so full of anticipation that I could not sit still all morning. I took out the trash, ran the carpet sweeper and washed the dishes. I even went outside and dug up the dahlia bulbs to bring in. I just had to keep moving. Of course, after a few hours, I was exhausted and decided to save what breath I had for my visit.
Early afternoon, after his classes got out, Jamie (some of his family do call him that) finally got here. Oh my, oh my! Here's a photo that Joe took of us on the porch. Can you tell how happy I am?
We had an awesome visit. Pogo even sat on his lap and allowed Jamie to pet him. We talked about a lot of things, and shared a lot of photos. Gosh, there is just so much to get caught up on. My brother would be oh so proud of this fine young man. And the fun part? He calls me "Auntie." I have other nephews and they call me Aunt Edna. No one ever called me Auntie before. I love it!
It was hard to say good bye, but he had somewhere else to go before going home. He'll be coming back soon though. We even talked about the fun we'll have in the Spring when we can sit out on the porch while we visit. I'm a happy camper folks. I am sooooo blessed!
I got a card in the mail that I thought I would share with you. Great Courses will be having a big sale next Friday. All the courses will be 80% off. This is a great deal if anyone is looking to take one of their courses. Here's the information.
Today, I think I'll address the rest of my Christmas cards. Then I really must get serious about wrapping and packaging at least one gift. Later, I will take some time to sit and play on my laptop. I need to make some Christmas quick pages. Tomorrow, I will have a new download for everyone.
Here's an adorable tee shirt design that I came across. Imagine a whole group of tiny Yorkies pulling Santa's sleigh! How fun!!
I have to get some new yarn to make a purple afghan. Hopefully, I can get it finished before Christmas so that I can give it to Jamie. (That's his favorite color.)Now I think it's time for me to get started on a few things around here. I have a nice little spurt of energy and I don't want to waste it. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
