Good Morning, Happy Hump-Day Hooligans.

Yes indeedarino.
We have again reached the mid point of our week just as we are nearing the end point of August.
Carl has recognized this fact and has installed a "transitions" theme onto this evening's open house.
He's a bit mysterious as to the exact content but rest assured with Carl involved it will be -- well -- interesting, if not provocative.

The count:
Days to the Season: 77
Days to Christmas Day: 119

And as the count itself tells us, we are only 19 days short of the grand opening of the final Window before Christmas, the 100-day Christmas Day marker.
Wowippers!


Still warmer and more humid yesterday as Summer has launched a comeback. At least there has been no rain with a low chance from here on to the weekend.
A glance at our thermometer reveals we have started today at 71 degrees.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Folks!
Enjoy the 'Pines this evening.

I recommend you get what you are comfortable with and enjoy using. Now that you need a new one you can get the latest model with all the upgrades.

I have not watched numbers for a long time, that used to be quite popular in this house.
I have to clean up the house too and then get out and check all the camping stuff before we leave to set up camp tomorrow.
I love when family comes to visit (well most of them!), hope you have a great visit.

Good Wednesday Afternoon.....or Morning if you are across the pond.

So an update to my Monopoly mishap lol. They will send a courier to collect the wrong one they sent me and they are resending the correct limited edition version. I just hope that it is the right one this time. Fingers crossed !

How is everyone today? I just finished doing an online supermarket shop and I noticed that they added on a Christmas Chocolates and Sweets section. There was only a few tins of the traditional chocolates bought here around christmas but it made my day !! It is creeping in slowly.....I imagine they should start with Halloween soon!

I can not believe that it is only 77 days till the start of the season! I am really excited for this weekend as it marks the start of September!

Well see you all at the Pines tonight. Have a great day! xxx

It seems I only have time to glance over a few post, post something and run but at least I wanted to say hi! =)

It has slowed down some since I just have my granddaughter in the morning. My grandsons are here right after school. I will have off Friday from babysitting but will be busy most of the day working on a video project for church.

I desperately need to catch up on projects around the house since the kids went back to school. I am just trying to keep my energy going to get it all done!

Time to get the Merry Tunes going and get to work!

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!
