It's going to get up in the 90's today so we might head to the lake early for a bike ride before it gets too warm.

Here is an app my daughter sent me a link to from Google Play that I think is adorable. It's an interactive ice skating rink. I haven't added it yet but plan to soon. Here is the link if you are interested:

Christmas Rink Live Wallpaper

Have a Merry Day everyone!

My daughter sent me an email with this video that gave me a big smile. In the email my daughter said:

"This is to you mom, from the little girl inside me She says it perfectly".

(My daughter turns 27 years old in June so I thought this was very sweet).

Hello everyone!
I'm so happy it is going to be a bit cooler today. Partly sunny with temperatures in the mid 60's. I am going to walk the dogs soon. Just need to finish another cup of coffee. Moving slow this morning, the girls were out pretty late.
No big plans for today. My husband has off from work but will be working on putting the radiant heat in the floors. He's moving along. We will be able to go shopping soon to pick out the new floors for the living room, kitchen and dining room.
My oldest will be heading back to the second day of that concert. And my other two both have work later today.
And I need to food shop, I have nothing in the house.
I hope everyone has a great day

Good morning, friends!!

Happy weekend!!

It's going to be a pretty nice day today. Partly cloudy with a high of 78 degrees- chance of thunderstorm later this afternoon.

We are going to head out for our bike ride in a few hours, hope the rain holds off!

Grilling later this afternoon =]

It's going to be a fabulous day!!

Hope you all enjoy yours, too!!

Do you know what I would do with 600 Million? I would buy the Inn at Christmas Place....for all of us....that would be our house all year. We would have a go cart track, big screen tv for Christmas in July, and all the coffee we could drink....and that's just in one section of the yard....

Thanks for all the mentions about the wife's grandfather. The last visit was touching...he was all smiles, told her he loved her....and that he was at peace with everything and even ready. He said he wasn't hurting for the first time in a long time and he wanted to go see her grandmother....and that it was what he wanted. He was 85.

Came home this afternoon and was asleep before 5:00 pm. Woke up a couple of hours later to the dogs barking at the wife, who was playing with them. I worry about how the dogs will respond to the new baby...anyone give me some insight on this? Don't ask me....it was ok. I needed to visit. That's what is in store for the rest of teh weekend....rest and family time.

See you guys later!

The Inn at Christmas Place? I'll take it!!!!

I'm glad to hear that the wife had such a touching last visit with her grandfather. I'm sure that help takes a little bit of the sting out of the pain.

I hope you have a great weekend friend!!!!
