Good Saturday morning, my Christmas friends!

I have plenty of work to do today. I first have to get the remaining roots out of the ground where we removed a tree from our yard, then I have to cut the grass. Then, I'm told we're cleaning out our closets. I don't remember agreeing to that. Then I have some work to do on my parttime business, then I want to work on the car.

We'll see how far I get.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I don't know how those driving instructors stay so calm. God bless them.

My mom still doesn't feel comfortable riding with me and I'm 34!!!!

I was thinking the same thing as I drove with my daughter yesterday. It's scary.



Radiant heat in the floors is very cool! (So to speak) When I was a kid, we lived in a house that had radiant heat in the ceiling (which seems strange, since heat rises, but...). My brother and I shared a room with bunkbeds, and I was on top. It got plenty warm in the top bunk every night!
That is very cool! I have never heard of radiant heat in the ceiling and I am not going to mention it to my husband. I wouldn't want to give him any ideas. This project can't end soon enough for me!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be a beautiful day here in central Indy with a high of 74 and just a slight chance of storms later today. Just a few things on my agenda for today. I'm going to go out to my sister's house and visit my niece's and then I want to run by hallmark to see what Jim Shore piece's they have. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning!
It has been lightly raining here all morning but it looks like it has stopped now so I'm going to take the dogs for a quick walk before it gets too warm. My two oldest are getting ready for work right now. My husband already left to be on a job but he will be back later to finish up this radiant heat. I need to go food shopping at some point today. And I need to take my youngest out to the mall to pick up a birthday gift for her friend. I plan on grilling dinner outside tonight so I'm really hoping the rain is moving off, we'll see. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
