It doesn't seem to happen too often anymore, so when they are all here it is nice. We went out to lunch and then had a great dinner at home and she has been with her friends all night. I think she is having a happy birthday. I'm going to read for a little bit and then I'll try again to make everyone go home, lol.
Sounds like a great day for all!!!

Sounds like the same weather we had! Nasty storms came through after all the heat & humidity, but today it's gorgeous!!! I did not want to come into work today...to nice outside!!!


Good morning everyone!!! I love it when I have time to check in here early in my work day! What a great way to start the day!! We got our 5:30 am walk in this morning - what a beautiful morning! Like I said - it was hard to come into work! Could have sat on the patio & drank coffee allll morning!!! Darn! Last night I got our new walk-in-closet painted (1st coat) then I had to run out to the lake b/c our neighbors texted & said we had some damage from the storm. It was nothing major...just needed to pop the skirting around our trailer back in place in a few spots & put poles back under our pontoon cover! Wew! And pick up flower pots that all blew over! I stopped at our garden (at my parents) to see what our corn looked like...it's all blown over! But hopefully it will come back. It was looking soooo nice!! Then I jogged on the treamill while watching Christmas Song...but I watched the ending from my recliner. Ahhhh! I am just loving these Christmas movies every night!!! I would love it if we had this option of a Christmas movie on tv at night - even just once a week from now until Christmas! I know I can always watch a dvd or netflix...but it's not the same. I like watching the same movie with all you yahoo's!! Anyway....make it a great day everyone!!!

Wow! 2 days in a row of posting! Yay me! =)

My son-in-law's job was cancelled today so the kids will not be coming over. I hope to get some things done around here and maybe can pop in on here throughout the day. (We will see).

I forgot to mention that we have a little thrift store up the road that has an annual Christmas in July sale every year. I had completely forgot about it and got a call from my dad, he was there shopping for other stuff and told me about it. Wayne and I headed over there after I hung up with my him and they had lots of Christmas goodies out. Good prices and I wanted a lot but refrained! I seriously have way too much Christmas stuff and just don't need anymore. It's nice to look at it all no matter what. We still buy our annual Christmas ornament every year for the tree.

Our church celebrates Christmas in July every year for a senior citizen home. I have yet to be able to attend it. I hope I can this year.

Take care my Christmas Friends!!!
