Good Morning, Weary Watchful Weekend Wishers.

And here we are.
Weekend Eve once again.

And now hear this:
(Well, read it anyway.)
Days to the Season: 306
Days to Christmas Day: 348
Now under a week off from our first Milestone of Christmas Countdown 2013, the 300-Day Season Window.
(Came mighty quick, didn't it?)

Another nice day yesterday with the high once again in the 60's.
Looking forward to 70+ tomorrow, Sunday and Monday!
I read 44 degrees here, currently.

You have a simply Fabulous Friday, Friends.
And a Wonderous Weekend commencement this afternoon, as well!

what you need is an old fashioned overhead projector, that way the kids can still see and you do not have to raise your arm

I also started reading my next book it is called "How Mrs Claus Saved Christmas" by Jeff Guinn, it is the sequel to The Autobiography of Santa Claus. It is good so far, I am only 10 or so pages in. I realized it was a year ago today I ruptured the ligament in my foot, it was only a few weeks ago that the lingering pain finally went away.

Have a great night everyone!
wow that's a long time to be in pain. it's wonderful to hear the pain has finally went away.

As an update on Wish, He seems to be feeling good today and did yesterday too. I spoke with the vet about stopping the Benazepril and he told me some information about the drug I did not know. It is the drug that keeps Wish from having abnormal heart rhythms which could be deadly. For now, I am going to try just cutting the dose in half. I guess we will go from there.

I hope everyone has peaceful, restful Christmassy dreams.

(((HUGS))) to all ESPECIALLY:

Ella, Harlowe, Snowball, Gomez, Ophelia, Sidney, Alex, Merlin, Snickers, Victor, Daisy, Diva, Mickey, Palmer, Mouse, Bo, Chico, Meca, Alvin, Charlie, Gary, Bailey, Jerrold, Irving, Martha, Uncle Julio, Missy, Scooby, Sasha, Jacob, Cracker, Bunny B, Penny, Pocket, LuLu, Bear-Bear, Stripey, Holly, Fate Puppy (London,) Buster, Missy, Baby, Santa's Polar Bears, Sangria, O'Malley, Beau, Taz, Zema, Rizzo, Bella, Happy, Sam, Guinness, Holly Noel, Larry SR, Mama, and all furkids everywhere xoxoo
I was hoping to read an update on Wishbone. I have been thinking of him & you CM3.

hey y'all! I don't ever seem to find time to come here anymore. not sure what I'm dealing w/ but I am physically worn out, every part of my upper body hurts. I have got to get this under control.... I hope everyone is well & safe. happy Friday everyone!

Seawaters, I am glad your medicine is working and keeping you out of pain!

Caninemom, I am glad Wish is feeling better. Praying he continues to feel better!

Merrymistletoe, I hope you feel better soon. We miss you on here!!!

Has anyone seen, Becoming Santa??? WOW! What a great documentary. Very touching, brought a few tears to my eyes (happy tears!) and also really getting to see how hard Santa works! Of course we all know that!

They follow this man around who transforms himself to becoming Santa. Others are interviewed as well and some history about Santa. I loved it! It's available on Netflix, if you have it. That is where I watched it.

no time to read everything, have to go to Kitchener this morning and work this afternoon.
It is raining and the snow is disappearing as I type. Going up to 11c (52f) today.

Hope you all have a greater day!

My mom and I have really been enjoying watching her home movies from the 40's-50's. There is at least 4 hours of it and we will probably watch some more today. It's fun to watch her get excited about her childhood friends. She "narrates" and tells me what is going on in each clip. She has seen all these before but it's been over 20 years since the last time she watched it. I love seeing her and my aunt playing together, swimming at the beach, dancing, roller skating, riding bikes, traveling and more!

Xmas365, I was trying to figure out how I could give her that on DVD as a gift. It won't be possible because we have already been discussing getting this done together soon. But you gave me a really great idea! I make videos all the time with my grandchildren set to music. I also do videos for our church for certain services. A lot of editing and music added. My mom has always enjoyed my videos I make. Since these films are silent, I was thinking when I can get this transferred digitally I will try to edit clips to music and give her that for Christmas. She will LOVE it!!! So thanks for the idea!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be another rainy day here in central Indy. Actually it's going to rain all weekend too. I may need a raft by Sunday. Today I plan to spend most of the day watching Nascar practice at Daytona. I also have some cleaning to do and I'm thinking about making some kind of muffins. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
