Good evening,

It was a long productive day today, we went and saw Percy Jackson 2, it was better than the first one, imo, and we enjoyed it. Then we did some more back to school clothes shopping for the boys. I also got my haircut which was long overdue, even the woman who cut my hair laughed a little when she saw how long it had gotten. All I got to say is I no longer look like a human Qtip anymore, thank god.

This morning I took the boys to the Goodwill store to pick out some books, and of course I cannot go there without checking out the Christmas stuff. They had A LOT of Christmas stuff today, but I limited my purchase to 1 thing. I found a Jim Shore Christmas ornament for $4, I couldn't turn that down, even though there was a Santa that was a little more. This is the ornament here:

My wife loved it when she saw it.

I also got my Lakeside Christmas catalog in the mail today, I thumbed through it and I fell in love with this:
I know it is incredibly kitschy, but something about bubble lights bring me back to being 3 or 4 years old when I use to stare at them on our tree for periods of time. I WILL be ordering it after we get home from our vacation next week.

Good night everyone!!!

It must really feel different not going back ! I bet you have some wonderful memories.

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!!!
Shooting stars are so magical, a reminder how magnificent the world is.

Morning. I opened the window to a beautiful sunny but COLD morning! I read in the paper a few days ago that they are expecting a late autumn for us. Apprently the warm weather is due to return end of this week.

I feel a little glum today, I just need to cheer myself up. Browsing the forum will help I'm sure.

Where are you all with Autum/Fall decorating? When will you start?

I want to make an autumn wreath for the front door as we don't really get fall decorations here. I am not sure where to start! I was also thinking about getting a couple of houses from my christmas village and making a sort of Autumn/Halloween scene. This should lead nicely into the christmas season.

Happy Pines Day and Happy Milestone Day!!
