Good evening!
I hope everyone is well! I am tired, I ended up doing a lot of cleaning today. There is so much dust everywhere from the construction. I try and keep up with it but its hard to. I was able to run a couple of errands earlier but I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to. I ran in to Barnes and Noble for a book that I wanted and popped in to Hallmark quick. I finally picked up the Heavenly Belles ornament that I wanted. I am going to try and get back to Barnes and Noble this week. I love that store, I could walk around in there all day.
Well I have to wake up early again with my daughter, she has an appointment with an academic advisor first thing in the morning. There is a party going on in the house behind me. The music is so loud and it just started around 10:30. I guess I will turn up the fans, hopefully that will muffle the noise. We'll see what happens.

Grapes will be ready early next month - there are more this year than any year I can recall! I don't have the set-up to make wine so I am going to make grape ketchup - a recipe I found in an older cookbook. Sounds interesting!

Goodnight and MERRY dreams!!!
Now that sounds good!

Well, as bad as I hate to say it....I guess I better go to bed.

Summer is over.

But as I think about it....if we don't start the school year....we won't ever get to have the Little Bambina, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break, NFL and College Football, the Super Bowl....

Ok, Ok.....I guess we can go back.

I hope you have a blessed Monday.

I hope you enjoy them, they were my two favourite reads last year along with The Help.

To Kill a Mockingbird is another favourite , I think it was the first book I fell inlove with....I was about 9 when I first read it.

I made some homemade blueberry bread, and tonight I am making my homemade Buffalo wings.

Just vegging out now, I would love to take a nap but my wife went to an Origami Owl party and I am watching the demons.

I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday

Hope I make good time & don't get lost! LOL.

Good Monday Morning!

I hope everyone is recharged and ready to take on the new week!

Not much planned today. Catching up with a few chores and errands and then I have an appointment with the Doctor.

I am looking forward to the Meteor shower tonight!!! I love stuff like this !! I really hope we see something exciting. The morning paper says we should have a clear night for viewing.

Fogot to share some exciting news. I picked up the autum Argos catelogue and inside it said the christmas one will be out on October 14th!!!!

Ok well got to dash. Hope your day is a good one...
