Hello everyone!
We are going to have scattered showers all day, with a high of 65 degrees. I did manage to get a walk in with the dogs earlier before it really started coming down, so thats good.
I am going to have a busy day. My oldest has an appointment this morning with the dermatologist to have a mole checked. I can't seem to stay out of the doctor offices this week. And I am going to visit my father later this afternoon, I'm excited to finally see him.
I need to finish my coffee and get some things done around the house. I let some chores slide last night because I got wrapped up in the Islander game with my hubby.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Seawaters, I'm thinking of you and your son. Please keep us posted.

And CAH and CAH's mom, you're certainly in my thoughts today as well.

xmas365, what a tasteless joke that guy made, and when you were doing something nice, too! Even though he didn't mean offense, he should have thought about what he was saying.

snowflake22, if you can't find out what kind of bug that is, just call it a "snallygaster." Where I grew up, that was the word for any UFB (unidentified flying bug).

Ryan, enjoy being school-assignment-free!

There really seems to be a lot of things popping at once around here. Thank heaven we have each other to share it with.

It depends on your elevation. Summer temps usually top out in the mid 80s at our house. It is rare for us to hit 90, I only remember it happening a few of times in 14 years here. With all the tree cover, we only get a couple of hours of sunlight on our house. Summer lows are usually in the low 60s. It can get humid but as bad as Gastonia.

She has so much trouble sitting still and actually still doing whatever kind of exercise she is able to even though her ankle is giving her problems. With her upbeat attitude on recovering I am sure she will do well! I really do appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers!

Christmas cheer will get us through it all!!!



MerryBells, congratulations on becoming a great aunt!

HomeMakinGirl, still praying for your dad.

Made, I hope you feel 100% better soon!


Sorry if I missed any other news. I am so tired from not much sleep the last two nights so going to finish up a few things around the house, lay down and watch Deadliest Catch!
We have been and continue to pray for your mom. She is blessed to have you close by.

Oh. My. Goodness.

You get to stay in the King's Christmas Suite?!!? That's the top of the line!!! We stayed at the Inn at Christmas Place last year as a Father's Day present for me, but we didn't stay in the suite!

Lucky you!!
