I love the ornament ... and the bubble-light candolier made me nostalgic. When I was a child, a neighbor of ours had a bubble-light candolier in a large side window every Christmas season. We would always pay her a visit on Christmas Eve afternoon, and I couldn't wait for dusk to fall so I could watch the bubble lights in the window against the darkening sky. I miss that sight.

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!!!

I wouldn't mind getting "just" a Carl camel coffee mug! I'd cherish it.

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.
Sending up prayers for you Star, hope your knee feels better soon!

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!!
Kindergarten is milestone, that is so exciting! Time sure does fly by, my "baby" will graduate high school this year.
Enjoy the cooler temperatures Judesmama, have a great day!!!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Congratulations to Jacob

Good morning!
We have temperatures in the lower 60's this morning, we will have a high of 73 degrees today. Beautiful, expecially for August!
I have walked the dogs, straightened up the house and started laundry. I also drove my youngest in to work this morning, she had an early shift. My oldest will also be going in to work later this morning. My middle one has off but she will be working on a summer assignment for her nursing program. I can't believe we are half way through August already, they will be back in school before you know it.
Not too much planned for me today, typical day of errands and chores. I am definitely going to get outside and go for a couple of more walks with the dogs and enjoy the cooler temps!
I hope everyone is well and has a great day!!!

Good morning,

Just relaxing before heading to work, I am entering my final 4 day stretch before vacay! I think my mind is already there though.

Happy Milestone Day!!!

I will start to receive my turkey order guides for Thanksgiving VERY soon, and the first deliveries of frozen turkeys will be in about 1.5 months.

Have a great Pines Day!!!
