Good Morning MMC!!! It's going to be a warm day here with a high in the mid 60's. Unfortunately it's also going to be raining. At least it's not snow. We have to wait until Wednesday for that. Not much on the agenda for me today. My face is still swollen but not as bad as yesterday. So I'll probably just lay around and watch the race coverage and maybe a little golf. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

I may as well join the club ... I was going to mention the owl, but HomemakinGirl beat me to it! The TV shows and commercials one remembers really reveals one's age!

Good morning, gang. Just wanted to drop in and say hello before I get up and start getting dressed for the day. I've got quite a bit of work to do before I get dressed and head out. I will be out of town for two days doing some challenging work. s It is something that mmy bos signed me up for a few months ago and wishes that now I wasn't going. I have been at work 2 days the past three weeks and will only be in 2 days this week. FRUSTRATING.

Anyways....got all the leaves mulched up and saw my first martin yesterday. Gotta get out there and get their houses ready. I love Martins, but I hate it when they leave. The good news is that when they do, I usually start doing a few Christmas preparations.

Have a blessed Sunday, y'all!

Good morning, MMC!

I have a somewhat relaxing day planned. I need to take care of a few things and then I plan on taking a walk before the rain gets here. Palmer is watching The Crocodile Hunter movie and Mouse is wandering around the house so it is nice and peaceful in here for a change. I have chicken in the crock pot and already did my house cleaning for the day - yay!

Have a most MERRY day and be safe!!

Well I am about to go take an afternoon nap. I am very sleepy today for some reason. Since it's Monday again tomorrow I need all the rest I can get. So have a good afternoon everyone!
