Crazy Carl. Today is a fall like cool day. How can you NOT like it?! Hopefully with the tax return we can get a nice deck on the back of our house. We have been waiting for years to do so. Sorry about all this randomness haha, its just flowing out of my brain today! Hope everyone is doing well. I have been downloading Christmas movies/music to stock up. Anyone know where I can buy the movie Battle of the Bulbs in Canada? Its on the american itunes store only. Well hope you all have a merry day! See ya later!
you sound normal to me!
I was thinking of putting up lights this year for Christmas in July. I get to make an announcement in Church for operation Christmas child in July!
My neighbor just now was taking down her Christmas decorations she had on her front steps.

It is going to be cloudy today with scattered showers and storms. And a high of 70 degrees.
My youngest has an appointment for a physical right after school. And my middle one is scheduled to work this evening but I don't think she will have to go in because of the weather. She is a hostess at a waterfront restaurant. Most of the seating is outside so they won't open when the weather is bad. The restaurant is actually only open in the Spring and Summer. So she will have to pick up another job in the Fall and Winter. That is perfect timing for all of those seasonal holiday jobs so there shouldn't be a problem.
Anyway, I hope everyone is feeling great and has a wonderful day!!!

on the bright side, it is good they bark when strangers are in the house, that is what you want them to do.
Hope they finish soon so you can enjoy the rest of your day!

I love Virgil's! In fact, I have some bottles of Virgil's cooling in the fridge right now! It's one of my favorites.

Good morning everyone. I hope y'all have a good Thursday. More rain here! But at least yesterday was sunny.

We're taking the kids to school this morning as the schools will be open for two hours to allow the kids to say goodbye to their friends and teachers. Not sure what next school year holds for many since so many schools were damaged in the district.

Well, we're one day closer to Friday, and for those of us in the U.S., a three day weekend with Memorial Day!!!

Enjoy your day, Christmas friends.
