Busy, Busy, Busy.

December 13, 2015

Good morning.  It's very early, 6:21 a.m., but I've been up for more than an hour.  As long as I was awake, I thought I'd get a head start on finishing up my wrapping.  I have the last two boxes to get ready for mailing tomorrow.  Phew!  I'm almost done!

Yesterday I sent a car load of wrapped gifts over to Deanne's house.  Some she will deliver for me, and the rest will go under her tree.  Pretty soon I can pack away all the boxes and wrapping stuff.  I think next year I will have to start all this packing stuff in October, and eliminate this last minute wrapping.

It's been a busy couple of days here.  Friday, Pogo and I went out to do a few errands.  It was such a nice day, and Pogo enjoyed sticking his little nose out the window while the breeze blew in his face.  Later in the afternoon, Joe and I went grocery shopping.

On Saturday, I did a couple more errands, and picked up a couple of last minute things at Walmart.  The trunk in my car is full of stuff for the dwarfs, but I can't bring it in the house yet.  There's just no more room to put anything.  Once the rest of the wrapping stuff is put away, I'll bring those things in and store them in my bedroom till Santa gets here.  Then, I'll help him put them all under the tree in the main part of the house. 

Yesterday, Deanne and Jazzy came by, and Jazzy set up the TV remote on my phone.  Wow, I am becoming so tekky!!   Now I can change stations and volume on the TV with my phone.  Imagine that!   Pretty soon, our phones will even be cooking and going potty for us so that we will never ever have to get up or move about again. 

Ever wonder how space aliens got their funny little shapes?  It's probably because their cell phones did everything for them and they did not get enough exercise for their bodies or their brains.  Makes me wonder if we're all going to end up looking like those little aliens!!  Hmmm, food for thought.

BTW, Jazzy made high honors in school, and Kevin made honors in college.  Can you tell how super proud I am of these kids? 

Last evening, Randi (Ali's mom) sent us another photo of our little Ali wearing another of her pretty outfits.  It's going to be a while before she grows into a lot of her clothes.  Even so, she looks so darn cute in them.

As soon as I finish this post, I'm going to finish decorating my little Christmas tree.   I just haven't had enough time lately to finish everything I start.  I suppose that is a good thing.  At least it will be a while before I start looking like a space alien. haha.

A friend of mine from my work days is stopping by later this morning.  It will be good to visit with her.  We had so many good years working together.  She is a lot younger than me though, so she is still working. 

Well that's all my news for this morning.  But before I go, let me post another Christmas QP for you.  This one features an adorable little snowman trying out his new ski's.  Have fun with it.

Here is your download link:

Now I'm off to make a new cup of hot coffee, and get my tree decorated.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Good Morning,
Thank You for the QP it is super cute! And Ali is so precious... Love the look on her little face of discovery of something that has caught her attention.

So proud of Kevin and Jazzy too. My niece just turned 20 and she is studying for her doctorate in Medicine. She made her first B in her whole life. My sister says that she is devastated and that she is doing nothing but studying! My son Jonathan was like that too.

So glad that your nearly done with your Christmas gifts and wrapping. I think that I am going to wrap as I buy this coming year lol.... It will save a lot of time I think in the long run. Your gifts are wrapped and ready for the post office. I just have to get a box to put them in. Sorry that I forgot the bows! Maybe I can grab them up when I go to Wal-Mart today to pick up my medicine.

Take care my friend and you and Pogo have a great day. Cisco and I are headed back to bed for a much needed nap.... Love Cisco and Beth

I am worn out just reading your post. I do not decorate much anymore when it is just me. However, I enjoy seeing what others share. Thank you for remembering me with the pretty Christmas card. Also, appreciate your comments. Suzanne is finally going to get moved next week. It has been an ordeal if you have not read her blog lately.

thank you so much for the wonderful quickpage. I'm glad the weather was nice and pogo got to enjoy his outing. little Ali is so adorable. i'm sure she'll grow into her outfit in no time. I think it's pretty cool that you can use your phone as a remote. I don't have a smart phone, so it's a tv remote for me. my goodness what will they think of next. I have alot of wrapping still to do, but my crafting is nearly done. now onto the baking.

Thanks so much Edna for the lovely QP. Ali is soooooooooo cute in her little outfits. Congrats on getting your packages wrapped and in the mail. I did most of my packages by direct mail this year...yes, I am being lazy...ROFL! We had rain again yesterday morning, so I have a river still in my back yard. Today it should dry up as we are to be back to the mid 60's, but to be dropping back into the 50's and 40's in next couple of days. This yo-yo weather is really causing lots of sickness in this area (mostly allergies) so I am staying home to stay away from it....(that's as good an excuse as I can come up with for staying home)....LOL! Have a great day, hugs, Mat
