Good morning! Happy (Holiday) Friday Eve!!!!

I woke up to fog this morning! It was REALLY foggy! The sun popped up about 10 min ago & the fog disappeared! All the schools were delayed, some canceled! It doesn't appear ours will have to cancel thanks to the sun. Don't want to use those days too quick in the school year - especially with the winter the Farmers Almanac is calling for!!

Hope you all have a good day planned!! I'm definately looking fwd to the long(er) weekend!!! I've got a little cooking to do tonight for the weekend, & hoping to have time to run some of our things out to the lake tonight so tomorrow after work all that stuff is already there & I can just head to the lake!!! YAY!!! Several of our lake neighbors are coming up already tonight! Getting a head start on the weekend. Lucky ducks!!

Enjoy your day!

Wow are you expecting alot of snow this winter. They can never predict the weather here, whatever they say is going to happen usually results in the opposite! That's a good plan taking some of your stuff before hand. Sounds like an exciting weekend planned, enjoy every minute!

Make a swatch about six inches wide and keep putting rows on it---eventually you'll have a very warm scarf!

If you make squares out of cotton yarn (rather than acrylic), you CAN make washcloths.

Good morning everyone. Hope you all recovered from the Pines last night. I had glitter in my ears, thanks to that Carl. Other than that, the morning is going good.

For all the fellow football lovers, the college season begins to night with several games on ESPN.

Hope you all have a great Thursday!

Looking forward to the Buckeye game on Saturday!!! I forgot about the games tonight. Thanks for the reminder!! I LOVE to have football on - if just in the background - at home!

They can never predict the weather right here either, but IF they by chance happen to be right, we are supposed to be cold & snowy!!!
