Hope you all have a great day and a great Christmas in July this weekend!
So sorry to hear about the teaching position, sending up a prayer for your wife!

Thank you, still waiting for the doctor to call me with my daughters blood work results. She is feeling good today, she went out for a little while with her friends. She hasn't been out of the house all week.

Lol Meceka. I'm not sure where I got that from. It's just a pet name I use as a term of endearment.
She looks like a boobala to me!

Yes, I can

I will keep praying for your little boobala (cute nickname!), friend.
((Hugs)) to you both.

Fairy lights will create a starry night, nature sounds on the music player and many stuffed toy wild animals will adorn the campsite lol!

I've got some marsmallows, bananas , and shortbread for the fondue pot and burgers and curly fries for supper.

This morning I bought my first scented candle to put away for the holidays. It's called Frosted Pine and Twinkling Lights! It smells amazing!

Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am so sorry things have been so hectic that I am not able to comment on individual posts. I am always thinking of you all and wishing the best for each of you my friends.........

How fun!! Hope you guys have a wonderful time, Sam!!

They're actually having an informal dance recital at 2:30 this afternoon to showcase what they learned during their week-long intensive dance camp. Then we have to be back at 5:00 to prepare for the 7:00 show. Busy, busy!

I plan to work till noon, then get ready for the festivities. I hope y'all have a great day!
Best of luck to Elizabeth!! Hope she has a lovely time tonight!!

I'm looking forward to going caroling tonight at the marina! Hee hee! Hopefully I will make it back from my SIL's appointment in time to partake in the activities!! Wedding tomorrow - no plans Sunday! Although my hubby says our sweet corn will probably be ready to come off about Sunday! Great! Just how I want to spend my Sunday - putting up corn. LOL! Ah well... It's worth it to pull that out of the freezer in the middle of winter!

Make it a great day all!
Bahumbug!! LOL!

Have a great time tonight, caroling @ the marina sounds like so much fun!!
And enjoy the wedding, along with the rest of your weekend, girl!!

Good evening, friends~

Happy Friday!!

I have been researching & communicating with other brokers today, so much so that I don't even know where the day went.

How has your day been?

What are your weekend plans? Weekend CIJ plans?!

I'm loving this Fall weather!! It's only 68 degrees here, cloudy, and windy. It's been raining on & off today. I am burning some cinnamon coffee cake tarts, the house smells so good.

Harlowe & I are going to relax for a bit, then take our evening walk.

Hope you have a beautiful night!!
