Good Morning! Another grey. cold and wet day here today. We are expecting a heatwave in a few days and boy am I ready for it! Sun and warmth is very rare where I live lol so it is indeed a novelty when we get it!

So yesterday when I picked my son up from school, he announced quite casualy that he'd like an owl for his birthday .....LOL As I can't get him a real one , I'm on the hunt for a soft toy look alike.

I have a list of things I want to get done around the house over the next few days. I seem to have little clumps of clutter everywhere in the house and it is driving me crazy. My eldest son's room is so overcrowded with toys and bits, I don't know where to start.

I imagine that you all are very excited and busy planning for tomorrow!

I was up then too, but having to be at work by 8am tried really hard to ignor it and go back to sleep. So I am not sure if I slept and had some really weird dreams, or I had really weird thoughts while half asleep.
Stupid bus doors!

Good Morning.

Hey! Hey! Hey!
It's 'Pines Day!

A pre-Fourth celebration is on tap at the Shispering Pines complete with lots of flags, bunting, Sousa music, fireworks, free iced tea.......
and Carl dressed up as Uncle Sam, greeting guests at the door by saying "Uncle Sam wants YOU to try our new red, white and blue frosted fired twinkes".
(I told him that was a little over the top but -- well -- you know that Carl.)

Anyway, I digress.

Back on track:
Days to the Season: 133
Days to Christmas Day: 175
Day after tomorrow, Guys -- SINGLE DIGITS to our next Milestone, the 2/3 Season marker.
Zowie, Batman!

Same old pattern here. Off and on rains with long, damp, cloudy lulls in between.
More of the same for today and maybe tomorrow before somewhat drier weather arrives for Friday and the weekend.
Currently, we have 74 degrees here in this neck of the woods.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everyone.
See you at the Patriotic 'Pines, People!

Good morning!
I am going to walk the dogs as soon as I finish my coffee. I woke up early with my daugher because she had an early meeting at work, but her manager canceled it at the last minute. So we woke up really early for no reason. Oh well, I have things to do anyway. I have to finish up my food shopping for my July 4th barbecue tomorrow, I went to the supermarket last night but they didn't have a couple of things that were on my list so I'll have to go somewhere else today. And I have to go to my butcher for burgers, hot dogs, chicken and ribs. I also need to go to the mall for a baby gift. My nephew and his wife just had their first baby, a little boy. Then back home for chores. My youngest has drivers ed again this morning. After today she will get a break from that for a few days, she doesn't have to go back until Monday.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Oh yeah! Same here. Also we sometimes just look at each other and know what each other are about to say. I will ask, "Are you about to say (whatever it is we are thinking)"? We start laughing and sure enough, that's exactly what it is!
