Good morning. It's six o'clock, and Pogo and I have just come in from his little jaunt outdoors. I was surprised though at how warm it was out there. It's 48 degrees F, and this little gal is not complaining one tiny bit. I think this is perfect winter weather.
Gosh, I've been watching the weather channel and the snow that has been/is falling from Wisconsin all the way to Texas. It also showed a nasty tornado that struck in Florida. Actually, there were six tornadoes in four states. Golly, our weather is simply going crazy.
Folks, for all of you who have visited Su's website and discovered no parts to the collab kit, please be patient. Su has been in the hospital since yesterday morning. There's a chance that she might be home later today, but at the moment it's not definite. I'll keep you updated. Meanwhile, do send some good thoughts her way to help speed up the healing process.
Well, yesterday I finally got my little Christmas tree set up. First I had to do a bit of moving. I had tucked boxes and bags filled with outgoing gifts under the table that the tree sits on. Then I realized that once the tree was up, I would not be able to dig the biggest box out from under the table.
Once I had rearranged everything, I could begin the decorating. I make it sound like such a big chore, however my little tree is really only two feet tall. Here, I've shut off the lamps to see if I could capture the tree lights glowing.
Pogo helped quite a bit with the decorating. Everything had to be checked out and sniffed thoroughly before it could go on the tree. Once everything was set, he walked all around it, sniffing everything to make sure all was well. Once his job was done, he was tired and gave a big yawn.
I'm looking forward to Christmas morning with my little fellow. I've already sent my letter to Santa, asking him to leave lots of little packages for Pogo to open. After all, my little guy has been very very good.
One of my next projects will be to go through Tootsie's toyboxes filled with toys and pick out all the new ones. These will be donated to local shelters if they will have them. I should have done this months ago, but it hasn't been easy parting with Tootsie's things.
Our local Rocky's Ace Hardware store has been collecting pet food which will be delivered to our local shelters for Christmas. I've already dropped off four big bags of dry dog and kitty food, and plan to drop more off each week when I go food shopping. No fur babies should go hungry.
Now I'm going to make another cup of coffee and try to catch up on my emails. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
