Good afternoon. For some reason, sleep just would not come last night. Finally somewhere around four o'clock this morning, I was able to slip off to sleep. Shortly after that, it was time to take Pogo out for a sprinkle. Then I went back to bed for more sleep.
Wow, I'm watching the weather channel and it says we will have two more days in the fifties, then the temp drops down to mid thirties again. Radical drop!
Ever hear the saying "rolling mist"? It's a common saying, but we don't usually notice that the mist is actually rolling. Yesterday morning, I went outside to photograph the mist rising in the field across the street. But it wasn't really rising up, it was rising up on an angle and traveling sideways. As soon as it looked as though it was pretty much gone, I would stop shooting photos.
But as I walked away, another wave of mist would roll into the space that I was watching. And it kept up for more than thirty minutes while I watched. At that point it was time for me to go home. I have photos to share here that I took over a thirty five minute period. I think this is really interesting.
What is the difference between mist and fog? I'm not quite sure. I have seen fog roll on by in waves, but not mist. Well, either way, I thought that this was quite interesting. Makes me kind of nerdy, huh? Well, that's okay because Pogo thinks I'm the cat's meow.
Speaking of Pogo, that precious little bundle is curled up in his blanket beside me, and he is so comfy that he is snoring softly. I'm anxious to see how he acts around all the Christmas presents. This is surely going to be a fun Christmas.
Well, I've finished up as much of my wrapping as I can until my packages come in the mail. All I can do today is frame the print that I'm giving to the Mrs. There are only a few small things that I still have to shop for, but I have plenty of time for that.
I missed the mail this morning, so the last of my cards will go out in tomorrow's mail. By the end of the week, I hope to have all of my packages in the mail. Then I can set up my little Christmas tree. Woo Hoo! But that of course, means that I have a bit of work to do to make room for the table that the tree will sit on. Ah well, I'll worry about that when I get there.
So for now, I'm going to get dressed and start a load of laundry. By now you've probably figured out that I like doing laundry. Well, it's the only part of housework that I can do and you can actually tell that I did something. As for the scrubbing part, well, I can scrub and clean all day and you would never know that I had done anything. It's just not my forte. So for now, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
