My Magic Blanket

November 25, 2019

Good morning.  At the moment it is gray and cold outside.  However, my phone app says that the temp will rise to close to 50 F degrees with lots of sunshine.  Oh gosh, I hope so.  We'll see though, my phone app tends to be wrong sometimes.

Well, yesterday turned out to be a rest and nap day instead of "do a project" day.  But that's okay.  I guess when the body gets old, it just naps when it needs to no matter what you might have planned.  Of course, that meant that from about 3 a.m. this morning I was up.  Bright eyed and bushy tailed.  At least the shopping channel had lots of good things to show.

I think there's magic sleepy dust in that big orange blanket that I have because as soon as I bring it out, Pogo and I crawl under and fall asleep.  Here's my little guy early this morning.

Today though, I really do want to get more wrapping done.  The other day, I picked up some cute things for my daughter Laura Jean, so I can get her box packed and ready for mailing.  Friday's mail brought a package with two more gift items I've been waiting for.  Now there are two more folks' gifts I can wrap and tag.  Little by little, I'm getting there.

I would still like to try painting the Nativity family rocks.  So I might just give it a try once all my Christmas stuff is finished.   And I want to work on the new red and black afghan too.  I guess I'll be busy right up till it's time to get ready for my vacation.

While browsing the web, I came across this picture.  I think it is just beautiful.  I do my best to try to make life a little better for as many animals as I can.  If we all did this, wow!

I have a string of lights that I want to put up on my porch after Thanksgiving.  It will be the first time that I put up any lighted decorations outside here.  Years ago, I always decorated, but then I got lax.

How quickly this year has flown by.  I can't believe that Thanksgiving is just three days away.  After that, there's only a few more weeks left to the year.  Hmmm, I wonder if the cold weather can speed right by just as quickly?  I know, dream on girl!

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I wish I had a sleep-dust-infused blanket like that! I woke up at midnight the other night and stayed awake until 3:30 a.m. Ugh!

Oh that cozy blanket makes me sleepy just looking at it. I am enjoying the morning with my hot cup of coffee and a little blog reading. NOT wrapping any gifts yet but I have bought a few on-line that are waiting to be wrapped! I hope you have a blessed, warm and cozy day, HUGS!

It feels good to get some extra rest from time to time...gets us reenergized! I'm keeping my decorating simple this year to make it easy on myself. Enjoy your week!
