Good morning all! Hope you are keeping cool these days! Its been very very hot and humid here in jolly old London Ontario. Finally today is a cooler day. I have been watching Christmas in July sneak peek on QVC. If you own an idevice you can download the app. It has streaming HD channel on it! I have been posting some pictures of it to my facebook. Feel free to add me if you want as well . Getting excited for the holidays to move it and come already! I have seen a few back to school commercials on tv so that's a good sign! I found the movie I have been looking for! Battle of the Bulbs. Its a halmark movie about two old friends that battle over who puts out a better Christmas display. BUT the only thing is its in the American Itunes store, not the Canadian. Guess I will have to find where in Canada I can get American Itunes cards. Anyone know? I also want to buy everything on QVC Christmas as well haha, I'm sure all of you would too. Well time to get going, going out for a bit. Have a Merry day!

Right now just searching for mini Christmas get away. Every year we go somewhere not to far away to stay for the night and take in the Christmas atmosphere. Last year we stayed at the Riverwalk in San Antonio. We had a balcony room overlooking the Riverwalk and watched the Christmas parade. That was very nice!

Also got a little Christmas shopping done!

Good morning,

I actually slept in until about 10am!!! I haven't done that for years. I have so little QVC this year, and when I actually have had a moment to turn it on they have had stuff like nail polish (on right now), Whatever mercury glass is, and some disgusting looking food. I guess it is just not my year to watch it. My wife saw me watching it last night, you would've thought I was watching a naughty movie!!!
The heatwave has finally broken, the air conditioners are getting a well deserved day off. We have a few errands to run but nothing more than that.

Have fun watching QVC, or your Christmas movie of choice, I did see that Christmas Vacation and Christmas With The Kranks were both on earlier.


Have a great day!!!

Good night all.
LOL, you are so right! But now I have nothing to do anyway so I think I will at least go through some of it and see what was on sale.
Have a great time with your company!

I knew that I had to do some topical concrete work on the walk right against the bottom, right hand corner of his house today, but as I was prepping the area, I realized that water had gotten down in the gaps and had underpinned his foundation, which could of had collapsed part of his house....

Oh brother, I had to go back to Lowes and get 15 (80 lb bags of concrete) and 5 (60 lb bags of sand mix). I had to open up the walk and and then I mixed all that concrete by hand in a wheel barrel and then I did the bags of sand mix to top it off.. By the time I got back home here, ate my dinner, showered and got the mail, it was 9:00pm.

I'm heading back downstairs to chill for a few and then crash...I'll check in tomorrow sometime; have fun tonight..I will miss you all~

wow, you have been really busy! You derserve a break today, but coe here instead of McDonalds.
