Busy Getting Ready For Winter

November 18, 2018

Good morning.  Tis sunny and cold.  Only thirty three degrees.  Brrrrr!  This is as warm as it will get today.  Gosh, if it's this cold now, I wonder what the winter is going to be like once it gets here.  (actually, it feels like it's already here)

It was busy around here yesterday.  Joe spent hours in the yard, clearing away all the snow and the leaves.  Cliff was here to "winterize" the snow blower.  He'll try to be here tomorrow to get the generator ready for use.  Pogo and I are going to meet him at Home Depot tomorrow morning (at least that's the plan so far) to buy some gutter materials.  (I'll be late posting tomorrow)

Cliff is going to put a gutter on the front of my little porch to prevent my steps from icing over this winter.  We may even be able to put one on the front entrance to the house to help cut down on the big icicles that we get there.

While the guys were busy out in the yard yesterday, Pogo was scratching at the door, letting me know that he wanted to go out too.  He was in and out several times because it was too cold for him to stay out for very long. 

Meanwhile, I was busy getting my Christmas cards ready for mailing.  All but a handful are done.  So I guess it's time now to get serious about the wrapping.  Today I'm sort of in the mood to do this so maybe I'll get some of it done.

While we still had the snow on the ground, I took a photo of my hanging plant that is still hanging outside on the porch.  I held it on the gate so that you could see it against the background of snow.  Can you imagine this beautiful plant still blossoming?  It is just the prettiest sight to see.

Today I have another new quick page for you.  This one is made from an old collab kit that I made with my friend Suruha.  It can be a fun page for your Thanksgiving Day photos.  Enjoy.

Here is your download link:

I've been watching the Jewelry Channel all morning, and the jewelry they're showing is simply gorgeous.  I'm being very good though, just looking.  Today they are showing earrings and a necklace that match a Brazilian Citrine ring that I bought a couple years ago.  My ring is set with yellow diamonds on either side of the citrine.  Just beautiful!  I can't wear earrings and I don't wear necklaces any more.  But I do love my rings!

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before I get started on my wrapping.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
