I hope everyone is out from under the threat of violent weather now.

Good night, Christmas friends.
Thinking of you, MerryCarey.

Hope things look brighter in the morning.

They got her into the cardiologist Friday afternoon to see what the next step is.
Hoping and praying for a positive outcome, (((Hugs)))

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and let everyone know I was thinking about them. I hope all is well and I am sending prayers to all that need them!

You 've done the right thing booking in at the docs, even if it's just for peace of mind. Keep us updated.

Good Morning and Happy Pines Day! I 've not been to the Pines yet so perhaps I'll pop on by today. Keep an eye out for me!

First of all , I have been thinking of all of you experiencing severe weather. Stay safe you guys.

It is still grey , damp and dull here but compared to what some of you are experiencing, I am not complaining!

Baby Isaac and I are going to try and tidy up the garden today.....which usually means I've got a toddler covered in leaves and dirt by the end of it LOL.

Ok , well have a good day everyone !!!!

Good Morning, Middle-of-the-Weekers and 'Pines Anticipators!

Yes, sir it's Carl Day once again.
Hump Day for the Hump Meister.

What else is today?
Well, let the stats speak for themselves:
Days to the Season: 175
Days to Christmas Day: 217
Now under 2.5 weeks remain until the 200-day Christmas Day Milestone.
(So moving in on that auspicious marker!)

A bit warmer yesterday with less of the wet stuff.
It would be nice to string several dry days together to get some outside work done!
We read 69 degrees here currently and the skies look ready to rain again.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Folks.
See you at the 'Pines!
