Well, we celebrate a different Tiny Tim here but we have indeed tiptoed right on to yet another Milestone, today marking the 2/3 point to Christmas Day.

Days to the Season: 80
Days to Christmas Day: 122

And here's a big heads-up.
Our NEXT Milestone will be our FINAL Window to tiptoe through.
It is none other than the 100-day Christmas Day Window, after which BOTH of our counts will be down to double-digits.
WOWZERINOS!


Fantastic day yesterday with cool temps and very low humidity. Felt more like October 1st than August.
Wish it could stay this way right on through to the Season.
Right now, we rest at a crisp 64 degrees.

Have a Super Sunday, Everybody.
And a Razzle-Dazzle Rest of your Weekend!
Super excited for that 100 Days to Christmas Day window! On that day, I will be able to take my two Christmas Countdown displays out from storage to count along as we reach the final sprint towards our favourite Season and Day!

Good evening everyone!

I missed all the celebrations this morning. I had our Monday night league finals (semi final and finals) to play. For the third year in the past four, we won our championship. We didn't win last year because we had to default as we were in Chicago for a competitive tournament. It's always fun to win!

Anyway, I am glad I could stop in and celebrate 2/3 to Christmas Day with you all! 122 more days remain! ...and in about a month's time, we can all begin partaking in the launch of the Christmas Blossoms thread. Hooray!

I'm exhausted. I should lay down and possibly get to bed. Before I know it, I am quite sure that it will be 6:30 AM. Have a great night!
