Those helpful hints are much better than the Merry Maids who did not receive good reviews!!! Congratulations, Star!!!

We did enjoy it. We stayed for dinner but did not stay for the meeting since it would probably last for a while and the meeting place is over 70 miles away. We stopped by for a quick trip to Michaels. They had LOTS of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas stuff out, but I had no time to take pictures. I picked up some yarn to begin my reversible afghan, and picked up some more yarn for another one. The second yarn is a milk chocolate brown, a turquoise skein (Aruba Sea), and a variegated yarn that is a combination of dark chocolate brown, the milk chocolate brown and the turquoise (Earth and Sky).

Your day sounds so wonderful--the shopping, the temps, and time with your husband. Glad it was a good one and productive too!

Sorry about your day yesterday. I had some problems, too, but they cleared up. Hope your day today will be a blast for you!

(My Goddaughter) Tomorrow morning we are leaving early to go to the Cincinnati Reds game. It's Joe Morgan day at the ballpark. Should be fun!! I'm going to try to catch up a little on here before I head out to eat....

Snowflake - I just saw where Harlow wasn't feeling well. I'll have to read back to get the scoop, but I hope she's much better today!!!! Glad to see she is eating & drinking!

Have a great day everyone!!!!

This sounds like a good time for all of you, especially the trip to Six Flags for the Halloween festivities. Have a great time!

Tonight we're going to nearby Statesboro to see a blues concert that Jacob's guitar teacher is playing in. The concert coincides with the first week of once-a-month fall street vendors in Statesboro, so we're going to make an evening of it. I think mom is coming with us, too.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I am sure you appreciate the sofa and will really enjoy it! Those temps sound so refreshing. We have temps in the 90s and set for the 100s next week, but with our whole-house fan, we are good about controlling the temps with not a lot of use of the central air.

No particular plans this weekend other than Sunday. Two of my BILs and one of my nephews are coming to help us move some bulk trash out to the curb and to move in a sofa, a bookcase, and a cabinet my MIL doesn't need anymore. The sofa should make a nice cozy spot in our front room ... I'm looking forward to that.
