I miss her! I have been through some things lately with my dogs and have always wrote to her in the past for advice. I have been really needing her lately! She is here with us though! =)
Thinking of you and your fur kids!!

Look at all those cute graphics you share with us! That's important, too! Oh, and all those cakes. Words/posts aren't any more important than that. I think the key word is "share." Did you notice that I award "prizes" based on a milestone number to which we all contribute and not on the highest number of posts per person? And a lot of those posts are from our "clicking" our thanks when we don't have time to respond to anything more than a quick thanks of acknowledgement. I know that you have "won" quite a few of those milestone prizes because you were here with us when you were able. Each of us just share when we can. I can share more because I am now retired, but when I was working, I was not able to share as much. We are under no obligation to reach a personal quota. One thing I have noticed is that we are really "sharing" what is important in our lives and what is important with our MMC family and not padding our posts with "fluff" that has no meaning. To me, what is important is our "membership" in this family where each of us is as important as the others.

I am glad to do some quick read thoughs and see that everyone is well and some have returned which is totally awesome!
Now I am off to bed because I have a early day tomorrow.

Totally agree with you there.........something soothing about Fall, the busy summer has ended and now we can get into the "relax mode of the coming seasons. Time for quiet contemplation, writing, baking, and just taking life a little bit slower. I love all the seasons, each one comes at the appropriate time to refresh us one and all!
Have a great day!

Good morning, all


Quickly popping in before I have to drop off the boys at my in-laws house and head to work. It is the last day of summer vacation for JP, so the real fun will begin tomorrow when it's time to wrangle him out the door in time. I have my inventory tonight so I work this evening and tomorrow evening, but I have this upcoming weekend off so 2 nights in one week is fine with me. Our local orchard opens for business this Saturday, my wife wants to go there and see if they have a Halloween tree to decorate in the house for October, she has been wanting one for a few years now, and after Labor Day it is free game to start decorating for Fall/Harvest/Halloween.


Have a great day!!!
