I've Finally Started The "W" Stuff

November 27, 2018

Good morning.  Tis a gray rainy day here in New England.  I was thinking I might like to sleep late this morning, but Pogo had other ideas.  So I got up.  Deanne isn't working today so I don't have to pick up Jazzy.  Instead, I will stay home and wrap. 

Yup, you heard me correctly, I will do a bit of wrapping today.  Late yesterday afternoon, I actually got a whole bag full of gifts wrapped.  But there is still a lot of wrapping to do.  Today, I will mail the first of my Christmas cards.  Only one, because it has so far to travel.  In a few days, I'll put the rest of them in the mail.

Yesterday, on our way home, Pogo and I stopped at a Family Dollar store.  What a surprise!  Hardly anything there was priced at $1.  It wasn't very cheerful there either so we left.  A little closer to home, we stopped at the  Dollar Tree store.  Now this one is nice.  Everything is a dollar or less, and it is much cleaner and cheerful.

They have some things in their freezer section that I normally buy at the market so I picked up some of them.  One item was new to me.  It was Broccoli and Cheese Bites.  I have to say, they were very tasty.  By the time we got home and put everything away, Joe got home from work and Pogo had his turkey treat. 

After that, I took a big bag of wrapping supplies and a big bad of gifts out to the kitchen and began my wrapping.  Today I would like to at least finish enough wrapping to get a couple of boxes ready for mailing this week. 

This is going to be a very busy week for me.  Supposedly, I have a couple dwarfs moving out this week, so I have those rooms to clean and get ready for new folks.  I already have one new person waiting to move in as soon as I have a room available. 

I dug into my photo archives for some fun photos to share.  These first two photos are of a little Tufted Titmouse.  I haven't seen very many of these around here this past year.  Hmmm, I wonder why.

This next photo is one of my little Pogo that I took one night at work six years ago.  I know I've probably posted it before, but it is one of my favorites.

It's beginning to clear up a bit outside, and almost looks like the sun might put in an appearance.  That would be nice.  Now I really must get busy here.  If I don't get started soon, I won't get to it at all.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Pogo and the little bird are cuties; you are reminding me to think of Christmas cards. I bought them last year on sale but haven't thought of getting them ready to mail. Good idea.

You are wrapping and I don't even have my gifts yet! You are way ahead of me. I will get my cards written out this week and at least that will be done.

That is a sweet picture of Pogo. What a cutie!
