Good evening everyone! It's almost 11 p.m. here, and I hope that you all had good day - or maybe still having a good day. :]

I got back to studying my academic vocabulary today because I start my second year at uni in less than three weeks and I want to be prepared for it. Anyway, studying somehow made me feel sleepy so I had more coffee today than usually in order to keep me going. ^^ My excitement for the day came back in the evening because European basketball championship began today and my home country's national team played their first game. (I use to play basketball in Lithuania so I know the game and its rules, and therefore watching the match makes a lot more sense to me than for majority of ladies. Deciding which player is handsome and which is not is obviously easier than sticking on the game itself. ^^) Anyway, despite the fact that we lost this time, I'm still optimistic about upcoming games - there will definitely be better times, won't there?

Sorry for such a long post.

Oh, and the most important thing - I have received a Platinum Membership as a gift from one of the members in the forum earlier today, and just because he/she stays anonymous, I don't know who the person is, but if you, my dear, is know reading this post, I want you to know that you definitely left me in a slight shock in the very morning, and you really made my day. Or maybe a week. Or a month. I hadn't expected anything like this EVER (I didn't even know you could actually give someone a Platinum Membership as a gift) so I'm extremely grateful, and I do appreciate it very much.

It must have been boring reading all this. Sorry again.

And I think I saw that it's CS's birthday!!! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And I hope you have a great day!!!!

Last night my Mom came over & helped me put up peaches! I saved enough out to make a peach crisp & it's darn tasty! The house smelled soooo good while it was baking!!! Then I picked tomatoes...they are waiting for me tonight! Salsa? Stewed Tomatoes? More juice? Hmmmm - huge decisions!!! Lol! Supper is in the crock pot, so that gives me a little more time for canning! Seems there is always something to do this time of year!!!

Hope you are all having a GREAT day & we'll see ya at the PINES tonight - 1st Brrr night! FUN!!!!


sounds so good, are you going to bring some to the pines tonight?

Ditto on the sweatshirts. I really hate it when it gets too warm to wear them.

You are so right. Cats are relaxing!

If he's nice and cuddles back, I give him some kitty crunchies. But often as not he turns around and ignores me. He's all cat!



I practically live in sweatshirts at home and on weekends throughout the winter because they're soft and comfortable.

awesome!
I came home form work and could not stand the mess still left over from camping and spent the last 2 hours cleaning. Dinner is done now and I can eat in peace and a clean room!
Have fun with your cleaning.
