It's 6:30 a.m., and all is quiet at our house. Some of the dwarfs have already left for work, and others are getting ready to leave. Everyone had a great day yesterday. Several of the dwarfs were at home yesterday, and dwarf Helen cooked a delicious Christmas dinner for everyone. It was a fabulous day, and Pogo and I had a most wonderful Christmas Day.
Folks, let me tell you, I had a most wonderful time yesterday. Watching Pogo interact with all of his presents was really a fabulous gift for me. He had a big pile of gifts, and he just took a quick look at it and walked on by. After a little while, he did try to play with one of the packages, but could not open it.
I helped a bit by opening one or two at a time and putting the gift back on the pile. This got his interest, and he actually got into to spirit. From here on in, he had so much fun with the presents. He actually played with a couple of his new toys, and checked out each and every gift in the pile. This first photo is my favorite. I just love the expression of his face.
Kyra sent him a wonderful bed cover that is like a sleep pocket. He can crawl onto it and pull it in over himself. I put it on his little bed, and the first thing he did was line up his favorite toys that he keeps in his bed. Last night I put his fuzzy green blanket on the bed. He crawled under the blanket and pulled the corner of his new cover over it and fell fast asleep. He was one very happy little camper.
Pogo was not the only one to get lots of wonderful presents. I got so many wonderful gifts, wow! I was like a little kid in a candy store. I had a smile on all day that just would not go away! Just saying thank you doesn't seem like a lot, but I want to thank everyone for making our Christmas such a fun and special day.
Are you curious about the little present under my tree that was for me from Pogo? Well let me show you what it was. This little fellow picked out a beautiful ring for me. You all need to get yourselves a little doggie like mine. He is just so smart!!
The stones are garnets, chrome diopside and white topaz set in sterling silver. Garnets are my Kerri's birthstone and I love flowers, so this made the ring ever so special. My photo doesn't do the ring justice, but it's the best I could do.
I'm watching the news, and it is showing the backlog of all the packages that UPS and FED EX did not get delivered to customers on time for Christmas. So many folks are really upset about it, but they don't stop to realize that most of them waited until the busiest shipping weeks to do their ordering. Plus, the bad weather all across the country hasn't helped. I was lucky, all my packages got delivered in time.
I did have one brain relapse this season. Somehow, one of the packages that I mailed out that should have had a calendar in it, did not. Now I'm having to try to find out who did not get their calendar. This is one of those times when my brain goes on vacation and doesn't take me along. I usually have a checklist, but somehow I missed something. I'm sorry, and as soon as I find out who did not get their calendar, I will put in the mail.
Now I'm going to make some breakfast for Pogo and me, and make myself another cup of this delicious Dutch coffee. Folks, I got some fabulously yummy goodies, and I'm enjoying all of them. Mmm, mmm, mmm. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
