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.
