I have not had homemade icecream since we lost our machine when we moved. Enjoy!

Good afternoon, MMC!

I hope this finds everyone well! It is a very humid day out today so of course I have to do a lot of cooking to heat the kitchen up even more. The tomatoes will not wait, though, and I do not have enough room in my refrigerator to put as many as I have, at least I don't think I do. If things get too hot in here I might have to do some rearranging.

Never should have taken that nap yesterday - I did not get to sleep until after 5 this morning. It was so noisy out! The tree frogs were yelling, Shaggy was jumping on and off his doghouse, the cats were yelling, pears were falling, and traffic on the main highway was ridiculous for early morning. To top that off, Palmer was racing around the house, batting her jingle balls, jumping up the wall, and jumping off of the bookcase, which I think she likes to do because it makes a rather loud noise. Of all things, sometime early this morning my neighbor dropped a pie off - when I went out to feed the kittens it was setting on the porch outside. Her knocking is what woke me up, but I didn't know what I was hearing at the time. Good thing she knocked or I would have overslept. Although I do not like pie, it is a nice wake-up call!

Be MERRY!!!

That's what I thought when I read it! Of course there would be have been complainers there to spoil it.
I continue to pray for you that you will soon have the whole thing resolved.

They are nice but I'm to cheap to buy one. My spiral tree's from walmart fold down smaller and are 1/3 of the price. They don't have as many lights on them though.
