From late Nov to march or April snow will be on the ground so I better get use to it! I hope everyone has a great Thursday! Talk to yall soon!
I know here in Pa, I remember times as a kid, there were times trick-or-treating in the snow. Last year, it was pretty cold when I took my kids, but there was no snow yet. We shall see!

Most weekends we make the 3 hour drive down to check on my ailing parents. Neither one is doing well. Mom is still determined to go to Myrtle Beach on Labor Day weekend to see the ocean one more time. Hope we can make it happen.

An article in our local newspaper stated that the mountains of western North Carolina were second to Hilo, Hawaii in rainfall for the year in the US. We have already far exceeded our normal rainfall amount for the entire year. I certainly like the cooler temps but the rain has gotten old. Just 5 years ago, our well went dry during a drought. Now we have more rain than we can handle causing several land slides. It is suppose to be a nice weekend with only a slight chance of rain and highs in upper 70s and lows in mid 50s. We hope to be able to stay home and enjoy it.

Have a blessed day.
We understand that you can't be here - family comes first. Good luck to your son in his first days of senior year. How exciting!

Continuing to pray for your parents. Hoping you guys can get to the beach for Labor Day. I'm sure that would mean so much to her and the entire family. God Bless.

We're busy in our own way, but not with the dawn-to-dusk job of raising children. Caring, engaged parents and grandparents are super-people---congratulations to you all!

I've been working on this year's YuleTube clips, planning a Christmas afghan, and wondering when the Christmas cards will come out at the Christmas Tree Shop so I can get an early start. Yep, it's August, all right! A couple weeks ago I started building a new Christmas library on iTunes so I can sync it up as soon as the season arrives (for me, that's usually right after Halloween---until then I listen to some Christmas music here and there, but after Halloween it's all Christmas music).
The same here! And I've started the organizing of my Christmas music too, with plans to get it finished this weekend. Can't wait! Any new additions to your library this year?
