Brrrrr! It's Cold!

November 29, 2012

Good morning from my nippy little part of New England.  It's only about 38 degrees F, and tomorrow is only going up to about 33 F degrees.  This is definitely not my favorite weather.  Well, actually the weather is okay, it's the cold that I don't like.

I got up late this morning because I was up during the night trying to figure out what was wrong with the cable TV.  While I was watching a program, the cable went out.  No notice, just out.  After being on hold on the phone for about 25 minutes, I went online to try a representative chat.  Eventually, the TV started working again. 

It seems that the cable company just picks a time and shuts everything down so that they can do maintenance of sorts.  I would think that they should be required to give customers a bit of notice before doing this.

Do you have an address book like mine?  I have to keep an elastic around it to hold in all the little scraps of paper that have addresses, phone numbers and email addys written on them.  Well, this morning I started to clean it out and get the bits of information onto the pages of the address book.  I'm about halfway done and hope to get this project finished before the week is out.

I am at a standstill with my gift wrapping.  Until all my packages come in the mail, I can't go much farther.  I did get one package yesterday.  The Mrs said that she would like to have a copy of my deer print (from the 2012 calendar) so I had one printed, and it was in yesterday's mail.  Now I just have to frame and wrap it. 

I have two fruit baskets to make up, but those will have to wait until the last few days before Christmas.  So for now I will focus on finish addressing the rest of my Christmas cards.  I want to put them in the mail this weekend. 

For today's photos, I went into my archives from this past Spring.  I found this adorable little sparrow enjoying a bit of refreshing in the bird bath.  I thought it was a nice way to make the day feel a bit warmer.

I probably shouldn't tell you this because it will make your mouth water, but this morning I polished off the homemade peach preserves (that Audrey made) and have now opened the apple butter jar.  Ooooooh, this is sooooo delicious!

On that note, I think I'd better get dressed and get busy around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

My address book looked the same, all with scraps of paper, little cards, etc in it LOL.
This year I wrote it all in a proper little address book, could skip a lot of the addresses, so it's all easier to find now.
Getting a bit colder here too, but till now, no snow hoorray!
Better no be too enthousiastic about it, because often we get that dammned weather in February or March!
Happy weekend!

Such a cute little birdie!
My address book is on the computer, no papers at all. I love this method, especially since it syncs with the smart phone, so if I update one address, it automatically corrects it on the other device.
