'Pines Day.
And Carl, being mindful that today is the 3/4 Season Milestone, has a new game.
Three quarters are hidden on the grounds of the Shispering Pines. Any lucky guest who find one can turn it in for a prize at the 'Pines gift shop.
(I hope they are redeemable for more than just camel coffee mugs!)
Anyway, I look to see each and every one of you there this evening.
awesome!
I will actually have some time to go to the pines tonight.
Life has been very busy here and so not even time to do more than just say hello and good bye.
Hope you are all well. I am fine expect for my knee, it decided to go for a walk without me and is still sore as a result. It does not like stairs, so I have not been in the staff lunch room all week since it is up a very long set of stairs. Walking around is OK, but not bending. Anyway, that is my whine for the day, have to go. Working 8:30 to 4 today.
Have a great day.

I haven't stopped by in a few days... we've been getting thigns ready for my big boy to go to KINDERGARTEN! Hard to believe when I joined this forum 5 years ago, he was just a little bitty baby. Time flies!

Anyway, it's a beautiful, cool day.. feels like fall! My mini pumpkins are almost ready. I wish I could take credit for them but I threw them in the garden last year for the squirrels! I thought I planted regular old pumpkins but when they looked a bit funky, I realized I planted BIG MAX pumpkins. Ay yi yi. No wonder the vines were so gigantic!!

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

We made our weekly pilgrimage to nearby Statesboro for Jacob's guitar lesson. He's doing so well in his lessons that Chris, the music store owner and Jacob's guitar instructor, has added Jacob to the annual honors recital. Playing jazz, of all things. Those jazz chords are out of my league!

Chris has recently started building and selling his own like of guitars and amplifiers. Here's a link to an interview done for him while he was at the big music trade show this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzYhEf9MQrY Chris is a great kid. His older brother is one of my best friends, and played in the band with me for many, many years. We even survived a shootout in a bar one night...but that's a story for another day! LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!

I also got my Lakeside Christmas catalog in the mail today, I thumbed through it and I fell in love with this:
Xmas, I really love both of these!

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!!
Hi Sam! We are off to a cool start here this morning too. I just got back from my morning walk and it is a pleasure to have these temperatures.
I have been thinking about decorating for Fall a lot lately. I usually begin when the girls go back to school. But I have all of this construction work going on in the house so I'm not sure if I'm even going to pull the decorations out. We'll see what happens. I love your wreath idea!
I hope you feel better soon and have a wonderful day.
Sending hugs and prayers your way!
