Almost Time For Santa Claus

December 23, 2018

Good morning.  Oh my, oh my.  It's almost here!  There's excitement in the air.  It's Christmas time and families and friends are gathering to celebrate.  Are you almost ready for a visit from Santa Claus?  We are.  Pogo has been sniffing packages and checking everything out. 

Today, Deanne will come by and pick up the rest of the packages that are going to her house, and to my great grandchildren Jack Jack, Lilah and Alima and their Mom and Dad.  DIL Janet will be coming by sometime today for a visit, and she can take away the bundles that are going to her house. 

You'll never guess what I found a few days ago.  A gift that I forgot to put in the package going to me friends in Holland.  I guess I could have just put it away for next year, but it kept nagging on my mind, so I packaged it up and took it to the Post Office.  Then I felt better.

Tomorrow I'll wrap the stuff that Santa left here for the dwarfs, and then late at night I'll tip toe out into the house after every one is asleep and put the packages around the Christmas tree.  I may even treat myself to a glass of Sam Adams Light before it's time to meet the Sandman.

I could not go to visit my cousin Ellen this weekend because I found that she had pneumonia and had been in the hospital.  She was transferred to a convalescent place two days ago.  I did get to call her and we chatted for a while.  Depending on how she is feeling, Pogo and I will try to go visit with her some time between tomorrow and the day after Christmas. 

The other day I got the nicest surprise.  When I got home from my errands, there was a bag hanging on my front door handle.  The little note said "open me now."  So I did.  Oh my goodness!!!  Here's what was in the little bag.

Isn't this just beautiful???  I love it.  Thank you Deanne.  This is a gift from Deanne for helping take Jazzy to and from the college.  My coffee tastes extra nice in this beautiful mug!

Now, for the answer to the Cinderella puzzle.  It's the little curly cues to the right of the pumpkin that are missing.  At least that's what I found.

I found a really funny story on Facebook and I just have to share it with you.  If you're a gun owner, this will tickle your fancy.

*****Well, Deanne and Eddie came by and they just left.  DIL Janet just called to say that she's on her way here now so I guess I'll take my leave here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
