Those bears are popular here. My two oldest each made one for their boyfriends and the boys also made them for my daughters. They are so cute.
We have another graduation party this weekend. We had so many high school and college graduation parties this summer! I am looking forward to it but am also kind of happy it is the last one. It will be nice to enjoy whats left of the summer without the weekends being so hectic. I plan on entertaining more in August, having barbeques and hanging out around the pool.
Have fun at the zoo and have a great weekend!

Wear an elf hat, and no one will notice the hair. The green and red will be beautiful together! If anyone rags you, tell 'em you're helping Santa to make up his naughty-or-nice list.

It's not bad, Star. I bet you look very nice. But, does it work like the redder the hair is the worse your temper is? My son's a redhead, and his temper isn't too bad, and I think the old temper stereotype is just an old wives tale.

I already had an appt to get his physical and then was going to get his cleats after that, but that is in 10 days so that won't work.

So it's off to the dr and then to Dick's sporting goods. I do need to bake a pound cake tonight for a going away party tomm night.

Hopefully I won't have anymore surprises

Hope everyone has a grand day
Thats usually the way it works out for me. The days I think I don't have a lot going on turn out to be the busiest!
Hope you have a great day!

A happy and speedy Friday to all my favorite people! (Yes, that's YOU!)

Something is giving me mild/moderate allergy symptoms---sneezing, itchy nose, itchy eyes, itchy throat, etc.---but our pollen and mold spore counts are low here. It's a mystery. Nothing new in the home or work environment that I can think of. Anybody here wearing a different cologne or aftershave?

Hello everyone. Well, not much is going on here...ready for the weekend to officially start! If we can get into the school, we may go work on my wife's new classroom this weekend. My daughter wants to go to the park tomorrow, but we'll have to go early. It's supposed to be around 100 with a heat index of a few degrees higher, so we won't be there in the middle of the day! My kids don't understand why we won't let them play outside long in that kind of heat. It is easy to get sick in a hurry out there.

Other than that, my wife is saying she'll be turning in early tonight as she's very tired. So, I have a night of movie watching lined up. Y'all have a good weekend.

Christmasstar, maybe you can run a semi-permanent dye over it to soften the color.

Good morning!
It was barely 70 degrees when I woke up this morning so I decided to open up the doors and windows to let some fresh air in. There is some kind of road work going on around the corner and it is so loud! So I put the air conditoner back on. Its going to warm up to the upper 80's today anyway.
I am heading out to run a few errands. I need to go to the pet store, CVS and the butcher. No big plans for today. I'm hoping to have time this afternoon to do something Christmassy. I would like to go to Hallmark, I would love to pick up another ornament that is on my wish list. And I want to get to the Christmas Tree Shop and see what they have out.
I hope everyone is well and has a great day!!!

I heard our Christmas Tree Shop is finally putting out the Christmas decor. I hope I can make it in there soon and check it out for myself!
Goodnight everyone, sweet dreams.
