Good Morning.

Well, sir. Another new week.
And another new count figure.
(Seems like this just keeps happening over and over on a daily basis......fortunately!)

Today's numbers:
Days to the Season: 240
Days to Christmas Day: 282
One week from tomorrow, Guys -- the 1/4 Milestone to Christmas Day will be here.
(And I'm afraid to check on the next one. These markers are coming and going so fast!)

Wow. What a difference a day makes. Our high temp was about 20 degrees colder yesterday than was Saturday's high.
Can't really compain, though. It's still a couple more days until the first day of Spring.
Right now, we have 41 degrees here on our thermometer.

Well, I certainly hope your new week is off to a great start.....in the appropriate spirit.
And may all of you have a Marvelous Monday!


Oh! And while I'm thinking about it -- wasn't that green tea delicious at the 'Pines yesterday?
(And -- um -- were those green slippers Carl was wearing??)

I love these priszes! I won a snowball machine with a detachable snow ball maker in which she can make snow cones and use the snow ball maker to form snowballs for throwing. I have been going all out throwing snowballs at everyone!!

Good morning, Christmas family

I have just a few seconds but I would like to ask that you lift Wishbone up in prayer. He would not eat his breakfast for me. It may be nothing but he has been drinking more and I suspect a change is happening with his kidneys that is not good, so if you could just say a quick prayer, I would be so grateful xoxo

I have been taking imitrex as needed but the insurance company will only give me 4 pills per month. Its ridiculous. If I get out of there early I will run a couple of errands. Then back home for daily chores.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Good Morning, HomemakinGirl!!

Stay safe out there today.

Good luck with your appointment today. Migraines are definitely not fun. I had them bad when I was younger, they put me on two meds in 8th grade, and I finally went off of them about 12 years ago.

We are expecting up to 6 inches of snow again today, mixed with sleet. I love the snow, but am looking forward to Spring.

Hope you have a great day!!
