Good evening, MMCers! How are you all? I am doing well, so glad it's the weekend! DH is working, but I still get to be off with my kids, so that makes it a great weekend, plus it's a holiday weekend!

Do you guys have stuff planned this weekend? I'm not sure what we will do during the day tomorrow yet, it depends on the weather, but they are having fireworks here tomorrow night, so I plan on taking the kids to see them. We will be watching a movie and making popcorn tonight. I just stuck a homemade pizza in the oven. Have I mentioned I love weekends?

As for the holiday, I work, but I work the night before, then I actually have off the night of the holiday, so it makes it nice. I will come home and cook, which DH always helps. We will be having my parents, sister, and her boyfriend over for the day and we'll be having a picnic, probably a fire too, since it's not supposed to be super warm out. EA is twirling in a parade, which is at 10 am, so I have to rush home from work, start cooking, and then go to the parade. It will all work out, it always does!

Well, off to get dinner done. I will stop back in later. I hope you all enjoy your evening. Thinking of all of you. God Bless and keep smiling!

That way, I won't have a big mess when I want to work on relaxing stuff during the remodel, and everything I need for that one project will be in one place, ready to go!
I put the granny square/ripple afghan on hold for the special one I'm making.

I also saw a lovely Christmas ripple in the Herrschner's catalog, but I won't need the pattern---just the right colors of yarn. I downloaded the photo from their website to use for reference.

Thank God! She will remain in my prayers, made.

I remember a hotel back in Maryland that had a deer jump the fence, swim around for a while, then jump back over the fence and back across the highway into the woods. IIRC, it happened at my college, too.
That must have been a sight!

HMG, maybe you could open up your house as a bed-and-breakfast and have the ducks for entertainment, LOL!
Thats so funny. Maybe I should do that. I might as well put them to good use!

Good evening!
Just finished cleaning up the kitchen. We had pepper steak over rice for dinner tonight. I have been on the run all day. I am having a cup of tea right now and its so nice to finally sit down for a few minutes. I ran a few errands this morning and then again this afternoon. I also decided to visit my parents while I was out. I want to catch up with reading the posts here but I still have some chores to do. I can't let them slide because I have another busy day tomorrow. I hope everyone has had a great day so far and enjoys their evening!!
