House plans were submitted yesterday to the inspector. As soon as he gives the go-ahead, we will begin construction. Then I really will have something to be tired about. Did I tell you about the Myer's Cocktail, a micro-nutrient infusion? If you have time, check it out. Take care, Festive Spirit.

I hope youi are feeling better. It's frustrating when your are not well and have got so much to get through. Remodelling can be so stressfull but hoepfully it will all get done on time and smoothly .

I have not heard about Myer's cocktail, where can I find out more?

How are things with your son? Did he find somewhere?

Morning! Happy Pines Day! Dry , warm and sunny here today. I am taking a walk out to the supermarket in a minute. I need to decide on something for dinner.

Hope you all are having a good Wednesday.

Good Morning.

OK, enough is enough.
Carl started calling early this morning asking what day it is.
That commercial has really gone to his head......or should I say humps?

Setting that aside as best we can, we'll focus on this:
Days to the Season: 147
Days to Christmas Day: 189
One week to go, Folks.
One week until the half way point to Christmas Day 2013.
Good Golly Gee!

Rain yesterday evening, hard at times, but nothing severe here in Wake county.
Should be drier today with lower humidity.
We show 67 degrees here at this hour.

OK, OK, it's Hump Day already!.
Come one -- come all -- to the Shispering Pines to watch our friend Carl ham it up.
What will be this evening's theme?
Hard to say.
That camel keeps us guessing all the time.
(But otherwise, it would be less fun, right?)

Anyway, you have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everybody!

(plus had a ring of prejudice to it since this lady is of Mexican decent) Well she did they said, just because we complained about having to pay for a cart! (you put in a coin and get it back when you return the cart, this is to insure the carts stay on the property) I told them again she would never do that but they were instant. So I offered to get the manager but they did not want to talk to her. They left saying again they would never come back here to shop. Of course they live an hour away so chances are they would never come here again anyway.
Talked to cashier that was accused of this vile act and her jaw hit the ground. Turns out this couple was complaining since the moment they walked through the door. No one was sad to hear they would not return.
That was a very kind thing to do, your co-workers are lucky to have you. I hope those people never ever come back!

The meat just falls of the bone, it is the only way I will cook a whole chicken now. I want to try a turkey breast that way sometime.
Oh yum! I will try this Xmas, thanks for sharing!

Howdy! I have not been on since Friday. Busy and tired, tired and busy! My daughter brought over a basket of goodies from a garage sale the other day with a Santa Claus in it and a few other decorations. That made my day!

I haven't been able to read anything but just wanted to say hi to everyone. My grandchildren will be here shortly so I better run.

I hope you all have a merry day!!!

Good morning!
Just got back from my morning walk. It's nice and cool outside right now. Great walking weather.
My daughter will be taking her last exam today, we are both happy about that. We will be going shopping at the mall later this afternoon. Other than that I have some chores to do and a couple of quick errands.
Prom is tomorrow!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Good morning everyone. We are dog/house sitting for my in-laws, so I was surrounded by fur babies last night! There were our two, Happy and Holly. Then, Haley (a sweet bichon frise) and Harley (a grumpy Maltese). When I left this morning my wife was still in bed with Happy beside her, his head on one shoulder, Holly laying up next to her on the other shoulder, and Haley and Harley on either side, too. Spoiled dogs!
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday.
