Nice! The floor plan works just fine! It was an extender to make my living room bigger hehe

Apparently something with the suspension came loose. It's not crucial, obviously since I drove it from Chattanooga to Knoxville like this, but every time I hit a bump this piece of metal drags a little. I'm taking it to the shop today or tomorrow so it's not a huge deal but it's just more of a hassle. I just got the car back a month ago after having to have the transmission replaced. Booooooo.



How is that show? I can't believe I missed it so far.
Ugh, sorry about that!

I cocked mine last night for tonight it was the chicken I have to post the pictures.

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!!
Glad to hear you enjoyed the time with your sister, how is Harlowe?

Thanks for the info.
I was on the fence about that show, I think I will try it out. Thanks

Glad to hear you enjoyed the time with your sister, how is Harlowe?

Thanks, LB =)
She is doing ok. We had to take her into the vet on Saturday for her complete blood work, and the liver function test was moved up because of her symptom upset. Unfortunately, it was a timed test, and one of the technicians dropped the ball on the second part of it, so we have to take her back within 30 days to finish it. I was very annoyed to say the least. Anyways, we get the basic labs back sometime tomorrow. I'll let you guys know when I get the results. For her stomach problems, they put her on some probiotic capsules & paste. Hope they help & fast! Poor little thing. Thank you for thinking of her!

Maybe the local thrift store will have put out some of the Christmas loot they have been teasing about for the past month. Love this time of year!

Have a MERRY day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(((Meceka)))) hope your headache goes away !!! Hugs to you and your furkids esp. Palmer xo

Oh I hope so too, well how annoying is that!!! I would have felt the same way. 30 days is a long time in between, but lets hope that these meds work and fast.

You are welcome and thank you for the update.

OK remember Xmas posted a FAB recipe for a chicken cooked in a crock pot. Well, I made it, posted my pictures in my albums (I tried to post in the recipe link, but I cannot figure out how to do it, ugh). I did add celery one stalk, and baby bella mushrooms (two large ones) and no water but if you look at the photos when it is done I think I have a few cups of broth that tonight I am going to use as a base for a spicy chicken stew (with the left over chicken too). I used a 3.98 lbs chicken and I cooked it on high for 4 hours. My crock pot is old about 10 years but it still get very hot.

THANK YOU XMAS FOR SHARING!!!

Hi Christmas family !!

I forgot to tell you all that I added MORE animals to my nativity who will be visiting the Baby Jesus this year !!

I added a Raccoon and babies, a leopard, a turtle, and yes, even a frog. (Well, the way I see it, he made them too !!)

I know this is silly but it is my way to pay homage to both Jesus' birthday and all the animals of the world.......xoxo
