itching not so bad this morning, still looks terrible. I did sleep well, but had to take them every 4 hours so had to wake twice to do so, but did go righ back to sleep again.

Good Morning, Week Day Two Christmas Enthusiasts!

And let me tell you, it's easy to become enthusiastic about numbers like these:
Days to the Season: 71
Days to Christmas Day: 113
And we now find ourselves under 2 weeks off from the 100-day Christmas Day Window.
Gee! Almost SINGLE DIGITS until we are down to a double-double digit count, if that makes sense to you. (And it you are a regular here, it will!)
Hey! I'M enthusiastic!

Wow. Three inches of rain in our rain guage yesterday morning.
We are due for a dry day! (And hopefully, that will be today.)
Currently, we are at 74 degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, Friends of the Season.
'Pines Day again tomorrow already. First one of the month!

It seems just like yesterday I first met and held him for the first time. JP is going to help him get use to going around the school for the first few days. He is looking forward to going to school with his little brother.
It is first day of school for all this kids here too. Hope LC enjoys school, it is great that his big brother will be there to.

Ugh Back to work but I am going to make the most of it! We had a great weekend visiting with some friends back east. They plan on coming back when the snow starts falling to ski! We are at the weird time of year where summer weather is still here but schools are back in session everywhere now but it's still a bit early to call it Fall or Halloween time yet. When the weather starts to really cool down hopefully by the end of the month or the beginning of Oct. then Fall will officially be here. Some people go ahead and decorate for fall and that is cool and a few years ago I did too right after labor day but I decided for me personally I will wait until early October and that is really close! Time does fly I just can't believe we are about to enter another Holiday Season! Well I have rambled on enough I hope everyone has a great day!! Talk to yall soon!

To end my little blurb, I just want to mention I had a sort of Christmassy dream the other night.
I was heading to the little Christmas store in my town, and when I got there they were moving all the Christmas decorations and putting clothes in it's place. I asked what was going on, and they said the Christmas store was no more and it was being replaced. NOOOOOOOOO! I woke up and realized it was just a dream, phhheeewww! That was close to being a nightmare.


Good night, everyone!
Enjoy your special day with LC before he starts kindergarten!! How sweet of JP to look forward to helping out his little bro.

And thank God that was just a bad dream

Take care, friend!

Good morning, good morning!

We had a nice and busy weekend. Yesterday Wayne was off work but he went with me to my job to help feed all the animals since we are closed. Our business is located on the path of the Labor Day Parade so we also got to watch some of that as well.

We were both up very early yesterday and decided to load up the bikes to take to the lake to ride before heading to my job. The sun was just starting to rise and already 80 degrees and humid but we really wanted to ride our bikes. He put them on the bike rack, I went to get our helmets to take to the car, stepped outside and heard a loud hissing sound. My tire went flat! One of our stray kitties was sitting on the car looking frightened, I bet he thought it was a large kitty hissing at him. Poor kitty! We unloaded the bikes and headed to the lake anyway, took a nice walk and fed the ducks while we were there. We got out there before 7 am and it was hot! I did get the flat fixed so we will try to go bike riding next weekend.

I am glad it is September and will be really happy when we are not topping near 100 degree temps!
