While that is being considered, consider this:
Days to the Season: 128
Days to Christmas Day: 170
And with that, we have just passed under one week to the next Milestone, the 2/3 Season mark.
Then.....
Oh, then.....!

Hardly worth mentioning the weather. lt hasn't changed for quite some time now.
Humid and warm with an occasional rain.
A glance at our thermometer shows it reads 76 degrees here this morning.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Folks.
I hope and trust your week is off to a fantastic start!
how about
many merry melodies make Monday manageable?

I don't get the post-Fourth blues, but I do get a pre-fall blues. When we drive to Chico, we pass by cornfields and sunflower fields. I know that fall won't be here until all the corn has been picked and the sunflowers turn brown. It seems to take so looong!!! I hope you get some relief for your back, MC!

Last day of the four-day weekend---no more holidays until Labor Day. Does anyone else get post-Fourth blues? I'll have to schedule a vacation day or two for a break.

Just rambling. Have a good Sunday, everyone!

I'll check in from the hotel this evening.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Aww, that's so sweet of her.

Have a Safe trip!!!

Not too much going on here. My husband went back to work after having last week off. None of the girls have to work today, I'll see if they want to do something with me later. I'm letting them sleep in this morning and I'm enjoying my coffee and the peace and quiet!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
sounds like here...going to be27c (80f) but with the humidity it will feel more like 36c (96f), we may get a thunderstorm too.
Hope Maggie feels better quick.
Sounds like a good day to go to a water park somewhere! Enjoy your time with the girls.
