We have a wood stove out there, and Hubby insulated the heck out of it when he built it. I am so anxious to get my scrapping space and get lots of stuff done.

On another note, Hubby told me I have to figure out which yarn and crocheting stuff I need out for the winter since we will be putting more stuff in the garage soon and won't be able to go digging around once the work starts in earnest on the house. I will do that some time this weekend.

I posted a quote on my Facebook page that is so appropriate and related to our stopping at Michaels on the way to Redding Thursday afternoon: Going shopping with your husband is like going hunting with the game warden! LOL!
OMG! Sooooooo true!!!!!!!! Too funny!!!

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

It was a hot weekend, but we had a good time. Friday night, we went to hear Jacob's guitar teacher, Chris, play in a blues concert. It was a great show! I know I've mentioned it before, but Chris is the younger brother of my old HS friend, Mark, who played in the band with me for years & years. It's funny to see how much Chris looks like Mark, and has the same on-stage mannerisms. Chris' drummer (Matt) is our drummer, too, so it felt like I should have been on stage instead of being in the audience.

Saturday was all about hunting, and Jacob and I had a blast doing that. Sunday was relaxation at mom's...except for having to drag the broken pecan limbs across the orchard to the burn pile.

Tonight I have a city council meeting and Nancy has a church Ladies Circle meeting. Run, run, run!

I hope y'all have a great 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!
Great job on the 10 mile bike ride!!! Yep, next time you go all the way around!!! We haven't rode around our lake yet this year. Normally we try to do it at least once. It is 27 miles around. Wew! Need a nap after that one!!!

I'm caught up to Sunday morning....

In the last couple weeks my parents had to untertake some serious medical examinations and on top of that we all felt ill. Luckily the results aren't as bad as expected.

My father has sleep apnoe (as we expected since some years, but he refused to check it out) due to the fact that his throat closes up during sleep. Despite the condition he does have enough oxygen. Therfore he needs a vacuum device which should make sure that his throat won't close up. Hopefully this device will help him rest better.

On top of all those examinations we also had to put our tomcat to sleep. He started to eat less and less and became very quiet. On a Wednesday two weeks ago, my father went to the vet (our old vet retired and a vet corporation took over) and they said he had a kidney and a liver tumour. They also told us that he didn't have any pain at that time and gave us some drops which should make him hungry again. We were suppose to give him this drops once a day. But he refused to eat on Thursday and on Friday mornig he breathed very heavily. My father called the vet corporation again and they told him to bring our tomcat over as he now need to be put to sleep. Otherwise he would get a cirrhosisofthe liver, which would be very painful. My father wanted to make an appointment on either friday (the same day) afternoon or saturday afternoon, as due to work those were the only times he could go. The vet corporation told us, that they are only aviable on friday morning and saturday morning (there are tree vets in that corporation!). So that afternoon my father drove to the other vet, who was aviable. After looking at our tomcat she said that he was in real pain and has been for a couple days. My father was shocked. If he knew this on Wednesday he would have put Benji to sleep that day. Never ever would he take him back home again!

Now, we are happy that he is without pain, but we miss him dearly. He was with us for sixteen years and lived a good life. We also decided to change our vet. Not just because the vet corporation wasn't aviable when we needed them but also because they are more expensive than the other vet. They also want everything paid in cash right after the examination. The other vet still offers invoices. Which is much better.
So sorry for your loss, Cetacea. Thinking of you & sending our love.
((Hugs))

My experience from patients using CPAP machine's, it always helps them breathe better. Your dad should do well with it. Hope he is starting to feel better.

So sorry to hear about your tomcat. Your family in is in my thoughts and prayers.

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
Calvin Coolidge

On Saturday we ended up doing some work around the garden, my eldest had his hair cut, I ran a few errands and later in the evening we cooked a nice meal and watched the second Star Trek movie, we enjoyed it, my eldest loved it.

It was a long day yesterday. I was up early this morning to take my son to school. My toddler keeps waking up at around 3am every night for the past few weeks so needless to say I am not sleeping well at all these nights. I managed to walk to the shops after the school run and I was delighted to see Halloween decorations and candy out! Everywere was busy moving things around, so I bet within the next couple weeks christmas will appear!

I would very much like to veg out on the couch now with a tea and a movie and recover from yesterday but ofcourse no such luck!

Have a wonderful start to the week everybody! Before we knwo it Friday will be here again!

SNOWFLAKE -
Your decorations are awesome, it made my morning! You have so many interesting and quirky items, they are just the things I would choose. I am inlove with them all! You did a spendid job on the house, infact I would like to move in! LOL!
What a fun weekend!! Glad you guys enjoyed it. It must have been fun to walk the shops & see all of the Fall & Halloween candy out!!

Hope you can catch a nap at some point, friend.

Thanks for your kind words about my fall & Halloween decorations!! C'mon over, you're welcome anytime!! 🎃
