Good Morning, Everyone Everywhere who cares Everything about Christmas.

That's US!

And so we mark our progress for another day:
Days to the Season: 186
Days to Christmas Day: 228
Thus we find ourselves just barely over half a week off from the half-way Milestone to Christmas Season 2013.
(Just let that sink in now -- HALF way back to our grand and glorious Season!)

Darn near hot yesterday! But it won't last.
The weather service indicates we could reach down to the upper 30's by the middle of next week.
(And that ain't right -- it just ain't right!)
Right now we show 68 degrees here to begin our weekend.

OK!
May each and every one of our fantastic MMC member have a Sensational Saturday and a Wonderous Weekend start as well.

Thank you!!!

Good morning!
It is going to rain for most of the day with a high of 65 degrees.
All of the girls have work today. My two oldest will drive themselves, but I will be driving my youngest back and forth to Haagen Dazs. When I picked her up from work last night she was crying because she had just dropped her Iphone and shattered the glass. Grrrrr. Her sister just did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. At least I know where to go to have it fixed. I would like to drop it off this morning and get that over with. I also need to food shop and get to the rehab center to visit my father.
Oh and today is my 23rd wedding anniversary.We were just a couple of kids when we got together, can't believe how fast the time flies by. My hubby had to go in to work today, but I'm hoping we can at least find the time to go out to dinner tonight.
Have a great day!!!

Ahhhh, that sounds like a wonderful way to start your morning SF! Relax and have a nice hot cup of coffee, I'm doing the same as well right along with you! If the temperature continues to drop here, I will be lighting one in mine tonight as well.

Good morning everyone in my MMC life... We have been having thunderstorms and rain here since late last night and it's humid and threating to rain again, but it's supposed to cool down later tonight.

I awoke to the sound of ladders being put up against the side of my house this morning. We had signed a contract for a contractor to remove and put a new crown on the top of my fireplace about a month ago and they didn't call to say they would be here this morning, glad I decided to be at the house here this morning....

We decided to put our house of 14 years up for sale! So, we have had contractors here for the past two weeks working on the back deck and addition, we are having new granite countertops installed, making sure the fireplace is in tip top shape and we are landscaping our yard as well (IE, my brother and his company). So as they say, we are turning and burning....

We are looking for a house as well, so we are doing that while also looking to sell my grandfathers house to boot and we will have him move in with us so that we (I) can continue to take care of his needs...

As a quote in Frosty the Snowman, "Busy, Busy, Busy...." lol....

Today, Lisa is working and so I'm going to push the mending knee a bit and try to start packing some things up in the garage and take them to storage myself. Yes, I foresee an Aleeve later on ha-ha...

I hope everyone has a glorious day today, enjoy, relax and have fun!!!!
