Ok off to my next doctor's appointment. The first one was to get me off the BP meds and to see through the blood draw if I can go off the high cholesterol meds. I guess this surgery has done some good besides shrinking my body size. LOL!! See you all later.
I will keep your MIL in my thoughts. That is good news for you

What do you think?
LOVE IT!!! Hmmm, I noticed others requesting your services as mayor. Can I add my town too!!!!

Right I am off to print some info on the St Francis for the kids for tomorrow. I was telling my 7 year old about how he could talk to the animals and he said 'He must be one of the X-Men!' I love kids logic!!!!

I like your 7 year olds logic too - very sweet! I say you go for it, celebrate the season, I know my MIL who lives in Settle does, and she noticed two years ago another neighbor did too, now a bunch on the block do it, they even now have a little "English / Irish" Thanksgiving... I know my MIL is Irish and English so they do that for her, they do it the Sat after the US Thanksgiving, so as many people can get there, it is really cool!

I agree, same with living in the Northeast, the seasons, but I prefer late Spring/all of Summer/ and early Fall not a fan of the long Jan and Feb days.

That is a beautiful picture! Is that your house? I am jealous of the surrounding. I get to see traffic outside my window. Ha ha! Well, at least I have a home and should be grateful!
Thanks. Yes, that is our home. It is small but we enjoy it. It is nice to know if you hear a car, they are in your driveway.

Meceka,

Did I give you a prize for being poster #20,200? If not, then you win some crayons in fall colors to color a beautiful fall picture!!!

Another busy day planned here, but I will take it easy as I have been feeling blah of late. The sun is shining and it looks like FALL - the leaves seemed to have changed color overnight. Mid-Michigan can sure put on the color show!!!!

Have a super Merry Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning, Christmas friends. I am ready to get dinner ready for the crockpot. It is beef barley soup again, but this time I am only using shank bones and meat and not beef stew. It will be SO RICH! I hope I am caught up on all the posting prizes. If not, let me know. I would not want anyone to miss these great prizes. Just ask any of the winners!!!

Good Morning, everyone!
Hope you all are doing well!!
I need to catch up on here- between computer issues & having my sister here, it has been busy We have had a great time together.
Back to work today, though.
I saw so many neat Christmas decorations over the weekend at Marshalls, Ross, and Kohl's. 'Tis The Season!! So exciting! I bought a few things, but didn't go too crazy. It was difficult!
We finally have cooler temperatures! Highs in the low 70's today, and rain. Yay!
Well, just wanted to say hi. Hope you all have a fantastic day!!

Oh cool. I heard that the CGI dinosaurs weren't that great. I am not too much of a stickler about that kind of stuff though. I can't believe I missed it! I think I'm going to go find the past episodes on the intertubes and catch up.

Thanks for the info.
