Good morning. Once again, Pogo and I woke up early, had our breakfast and lots of fun play time. He's been super huggy huggy lately. Do you suppose he knows that Santa is coming soon? Right now, he is snuggled up beside me and snoring away. Gosh, it's such a soothing sound!
Well, yesterday turned out to be quite an interesting, yet fun day. It all began when I started on the Christmas tree. I got out all the decorations and made sure all the branches were just right. Then before I started putting any of the ornaments on the tree, I thought I would plug it in. Oh boy, surprise surprise. Nothing lit up. I unplugged and re-plugged. Still nothing. (It's a fiber optic tree)
So now I checked the tips of the tree branches to find the tiny optic bulbs. Hmmm, I can't find any. I also noticed that there was a chip in the tree base. I guess my little tree is broken. I took it out to Joe. After checking it over, he discovered that there was something rattling around inside the base where the wiring is all connected. Sighhhhhhh. Bad tree.
I called Amazon, and even though it came from one of their associated companies, they gave me a full refund. So then I went back on line (Amazon) and ordered me another little tree. So, for now, Pogo and I have no tree. We do have a beautiful angel though, and if the tree isn't here soon, I'll set up the angel and place the gifts around her.
My friend Ellen came by and we had an awesome visit. She is one of the best people I've ever worked with in the health field. The other person is my daughter Deanne. If you have work mates like these two, you are working with the best there is.
Speaking of Deanne, she brought gingerbread kits to Jack and Lilah (Ali's siblings). Here's a photo of Lilah when she finished building her gingerbread train. She's definitely enjoying herself, and that train looks yummy!
I also have a photo of my handsome little guy doing what he loves. Sitting by the door, waiting for Joe to get home from work.
Yesterday afternoon, I finished packing one of the last two boxes to go out. Today I will finish the last one and get them both to the Post Office. According to the news on TV this morning, today is the last day to mail packages for Christmas delivery at the current rates. I guess that means the rates go up tomorrow. Phew! I just made it!!
Here's a photo of two of the last few neck warmers that I finished. Unfortunately, the red color did not photograph so good. It should look more of a rosy rouge red.
Well, that's about all my news for today. Now I think I'll make myself a cup of hot chocolate and get busy finishing up that last mailer box. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
