Hello!
I just ate dinner by myself. The girls are all out and my husband isn't home from work yet. I am having a cup of coffee now and I think I will walk the dogs when I am finished. It was almost a little too warm for me today but it is cooling off now. I did decide to take advantage of the weather earlier and wash my truck and both of my daughters cars. We all have black cars and they were starting to look green from all of the pollen that was on them. There is already another thin layer of pollen covering them. I don't know why I bothered, lol. Anyway, I think I may go visit my parents for a little while after I walk the dogs.
Hope everyone has a good evening, I will be back later!

Good evening, MMCers! How are you all? I am well! Just relaxing for the evening, getting done with dinner.

What is new? Nothing here. The kids went to my sister's tonight for a sleep over - DH is working tonight, then he is working overtime again tomorrow, then working for someone tomorrow night - he's been a busy bee. Hopefully after tomorrow night, he'll have his four days off. I can at least hope! I work until the next two nights, then I am off Sunday night and I'm looking forward to it!

Any plans for the weekend? I don't really have any. It's going to be pretty boring here. Hopefully since DH and I are supposed to both be off Sunday, we'll do something fun with the kids.

Well, I am off to read some of the boards and watch some TV. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening and the weekend. Thinking of all of you! God Bless and keep smiling!

We are all doing well, thanks =]

Harlowe already had a tick, but we were able to get it before it bit her. I hear they're going to be very bad this year.

Have you heard that, too?

Mosquitoes are terrible here, too. I need to buy some repellent!!

It sounds like you've been working hard & having some fun, too. That's great!!
Good luck with all of your planting!!

Have you read any good mysteries lately?

Do you watch Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries? I just love Phryne!

Thank you for the prayers! The vet says we have to wait and see how the liquid meds do - if they don't work, she goes back to shots. The tumor won't go away, but the meds should keep her pain-free and prevent (at least for a bit) any spreading. I'm so glad you got the tick out before it bit Harlowe - scary! I haven't heard anything about ticks for this season for this area. I've only ever seen one and that was years ago - I used tweezers to pull it out of the cat it was in - she was fine afterwards. Thank you for the good luck wish on the planting - I will need it as there are a lot of rabbits around here this year. Love them, but hate it when they eat my seedlings. I really don't watch much television. I only get the free previews on Dishnet - right now it is Hallmark and a few other channels I have no interest in. The other day I did turn the tv on to see if there was any new channels in the clear and it was on Hallmark - one of the Christmas episodes of Little House on the Prairie was playing. It was the one where Laura gives up Bunny to buy Caroline the stove - always makes me cry. I just finished up with the first three books in the knitting mysteries by Maggie Sefton (good, but quick reads) and three Myron Bolitar mysteries by Harlan Coben (quite good, but again, quick reads). I've lightened my reading up with Sammy's Hill - supposedly an American Bridget Jones, but so far, not nearly as funny. What are you reading?

I haven't heard of those series. I'll have to look into them. Thanks for the tips!!

I am re-reading The Halloween Tree right now.

Special ((hugs)) for Mouse. Bless her heart.

That's nice that the kids get to spend the night at their Auntie's house. How fun for them!

Hope you guys have a great time on Sunday =]

We plan on going for a bike ride by the river, and to grill out tomorrow night. Pretty laid back weekend!
