Thank you Snow, it was fine. I will need a couple follow ups and unfortunatley some minor surgery but staying brave or trying to be anyway
Thank you for the book recommendation - I am adding it to my ever-growing list. I'm sorry to read that you need follow ups and minor surgery - I will be praying for you! {{{HUGS}}}

Good afternoon, MMC!

Well, last night was mostly overcast with a few rain showers. When it was clear out, I did watch, but there were no shooting stars. There was lightning, airplanes, bats and even a few fireflies so it was still rather interesting. I was so busy looking that I didn't even finish the book I was reading. Finally called it a night around 1.

However, at 3:20 this morning I suddenly woke up - and I mean I was wide awake! I got up and checked to see if something had happened in the house (yes, still a bit on edge from the unwanted visitor!) but when I didn't find anything I decided to look outside again. I saw a shooting star!!!

Ran a bunch of errands this morning and I have some work to do for the store. After that I am going to make something baked with zucchini as mine is finally producing. Yay!!!

Be MERRY!!!

I miss fireflies so much. I hate when I wake up like that in the middle of the night. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it creeps me out!

Okay, Lear trip to Meceka's for something zucchini-ish!!!
