Don't know yet what time BIL is bringing the new (well, to us) furniture. A lot of fuss over replacing some old things with a few new ones. We don't rearrange things often.

You should sleep good tonight at least!!!

I just wanted to give a shout-out to Xmas for all his work on the Christmas-Song-a-Day thread. It has really been a blessing and a mood-lifter. If you haven't visited it and would like to hear some Christmas Spirit, just check it out! You'll be glad you did. Would you believe he has been doing this daily for almost two years!!!

Good Morning, Sundayacs and Christmas Maniacs!

Rise, shine and read the daily count of your choice.

Actually, the choice is simple and here it is:
Days to the Season: 66
Days to Christmas Day: 108
Tomorrow, Guys -- ONE WEEK until the 100-day Christmas Day Milestone. Followed instantly by a double/double count.
(Let me tell you, Folks. We are running low on Milestones. A sure sign that Christmas Season 2013 will soon be upon us!)

Another wonderful day was had here yesterday.
Still the nice low humidity and moderate temps.
Now, today is supposed to be 8-10 degrees warmer but hopefully the humidity will remain diminished.
Right now? Well, we record 65.6 degrees here on our digital backdoor thermometer.

Have a Super Sunday, Friends!
And enjoy the balance of your weekend in the spirit of the pending Season.

Just popping in for a sec. I have a busy day!

Snow-in-Texas and I went on a 10 mile bike ride yesterday at the lake. That is the longest we have rode since we got the bikes. I wanted to do more but it was getting really hot by 11 am. The high topped out at 100 yesterday. The muscles in my legs were a little tight yesterday so I thought I would wake up sore but I don't feel a thing. We keep saying that we want to go completely around the lake someday and looking it up this morning the trail around it is just 11 miles. Here we were going so many miles out, backtrack then go out again. We were going back and forth until we reached 10 miles when all along we could have gone all the way around it! I thought the trail was MUCH LONGER than that. We were afraid to get too far out and not make it back. I think our next goal is to go around! I can't believe I lived here all my life and didn't know that info.

When we got done with the 10 miles we cleaned up and headed back out running around for a few hours. By the time we got home we were wiped out and was asleep a little after 8 pm.

While we were out running around we saw lots of Fall and Christmas goodies! Exciting times!

You all have a blessed day!
