Good morning. I'm still at work, and the Mrs is fast asleep. Outside the window, there is a thick blanket of fog everywhere. Hopefully, there's no ice because it will be hard to see. We're supposed to get quite a lot of rain this morning and that should clear up any ice. At least until tonight.
Yesterday morning there were quite a few fog patches everywhere until after 8 a.m. Here's a photo I took of the view across the street from work.
Although there are no more blooms in the gardens, one plant's buds thrive all through the cold winter season. The Rhododendron's buds grow nicely in this cold weather. This is one of the Mrs' bushes.
I was not able to catch any winks during the night, so I'm getting quite tired. Yesterday was not a good napping day. I'm hoping that today will be better. I still have a few things to wrap, and Dee and Eddie and the kids are coming by later today, so I want to catch a little nap in the morning.
Tomorrow night, I will be back here to spend Christmas Eve with the Mrs. I'm really giving some hard thought to retirement in the new year, because I would rather be at home on the holidays. Next week is New Years Eve and Day, and I'm hoping that someone else will want to work that holiday. It's not a big deal to me, but I really would rather stay at home with Pogo.
Last night on my way to work, I stopped a few times to take a few photos of the Christmas lights. Here's a couple that are not far from my house.
I'll try to get a few more in the next few days. There are so many beautiful holilday displays. There are also a few folks who decorated some very large trees growing outdoors. I'll try to get a couple photos of those too.
For those of you who stop by regularly, I will be posting a Christmas QP freebie on Christmas. The link will be up through the first week in January. At that time, all links are expired so that I can have my next blog book printed.
I'm listening to the Weather Channel, and they are talking about the areas that got a lot of ice, and the catastrophic damage caused by it. A lot of folks won't have any electric power for Christmas. I'm hoping that the power companies will be able to get the electricity back on for these folks real soon. I'm counting my blessings that we are safe so far from these bad storms.
Now I think I'll go check on the Mrs, and then maybe have a cup of coffee before it's time to pack up and head home. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
