Last Weekend To Get Ready For Christmas

December 21, 2018

Good morning.  Temps are warm, in the mid fifties, but it is gray and wet outside.  We're supposed to get lots of rain today.  I do have to go out though.  After I take Jazzy to the college, I think I'll stop in at WalMart to pick up a few things.  Then I'll hunker down here at home to get all my last minute things done. 

I'd like to make time for a visit with my cousin Ellen before Christmas, plus I'd like to stop in to see an old friend.  I'd like to finish my things today so that I can visit these folks tomorrow.  Even so, I will make the time.  They are important to me.

Deanne came by yesterday afternoon and took a whole batch of wrapped gifts back to her home.  Wowsie, look at all the room I have now!  The packages that I was waiting for arrived later in the day, so today I will finish up the last of my wrapping.  (not Santa's stuff) 

Last night, I heard from my burner guy.  The price for all the work on the furnace, hot water heater and electrical will be around $5200.  This is so much better than I was expecting.  The work will be done right after the New Year.  After that, I'll worry about replacing all the plumbing in the basement.  One thing at a time.

Today I have another of Dover's puzzles for you.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  In this one, you have to find the misfit Cinderella.

I also have another coloring page for you.  It's just a little thing to keep you calm over this wicked busy weekend.  Have fun with it.

I've been watching for the mail carrier.  Every day I watch, but I almost always miss him.  That's not easy folks.  He's a big man.  I want to give him a Christmas card and one of my new calendars.  Well, lucky me!  He just got here and I gave them to him. 

Pogo and I are going online today to send some kitty food to our new friends at the kitty shelter.  You just can't imagine how happy this makes us.  I'd also like to send some to a local doggie shelter.  I will look up their address today.

I found this adorable image on the web and just had to share it.  Please folks, if you're thinking about getting a new pet, ADOPT, don't buy!  If you'd like to have a pet, but can't keep one at your home, then go to a local shelter and visit with the animals.  They love having company and getting lots of cuddles. 

Now I need a refill for my coffee mug, and I'll do a bit of blog reading before getting started on today's tasks.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

I'm glad the work on your house isn't as much as you expected it to be, but even so that's an awful lot of money! At least things will all be taken care of soon. Isn't it great when the gifts move out of your home and there's so much more room? I can't wait to give some of what I have to the people who are getting them.

Enjoy your day and stay warm. It's getting cold around here.

Gosh, it seems you somehow will succeed in having everything ready for Christmas LOL!
Oops, the work on your house isn;t costing peanuts! That is a lot of money. But okay, you thought it would be much more, so that is a little relief. And good it can be done start of the new year.
Now it is about time you can relax and completely enjoy Christmas time! We are busy with it and waiting for it for so long and then suddenly it os over and done with in no-time!
Have a wonderful day and a even more wonderful Christmas, together with Pogo.
Lots of hugs
