Yes, I woke up to a loud storm, and had trouble falling back asleep!

So I watched Murder She Wrote & checked out MMC threads =]

This is so true! I agree with every word.

I hope everyone has a great day and happy Friday, friends!

It will be a bitter/sweet stay.

I've killed 2 copperhead snakes the last 2 days. They were the first adult ones I've seen near the house this year. Can't wait until cooler weather with no bugs and/or snakes.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend making memories with your family.

Big pat on the back indeed, I agree you should be very proud of yourself. Sounds like a lovely weekend planned. Goodluck to Adrian, I'll be praying for his safety. I will have to look for a copy of that book to read , bet it's good!

Its been almost a week since I last posted. My husband has been finishing the wood floors in the house. We borrowed our friends camper to stay in but I decided that wasn't going to work out. The girls and I packed up and brought the cats and dogs to my parents house. My parents went to their place in Pennsylvania so we could have the house to ourselves. They are the best, I am so thankful they did that for us. My husband told me that it would take about three or four days to finish the floors but it took longer. He probably should have planned on taking a couple of days off from work. It was a big job for him to do alone, especially when he only had the evenings to work on it. I am hoping and praying to be home tonight. I just wanted to pop in and say hello. I hope everyone is well. I will post pictures of the floors when I can. It will probably take me a couple of days to settle back in at home and get the house in order.
Take care and have a great day!


It's good to hear from you HMG!!!!!! I've been wondering how things were going. I hope your husband can get them done this weekend and life can get back to normal.
