Harlowe seems to be doing better today, thank you all for the thoughts & prayers. Please keep them coming! <3

We had a nice visit with our friends yesterday, but Harlowe didn't know what to make of the big dog that came with them =] He is a very sweet golden retriever, but was a little too rambunctious & frightened her, I think a lot has to do with his size, too. Add not feeling the greatest on top of it, well... we were going to keep him outside, but it was 95 degrees & 100% humidity, so he needed to come in.

All in all, it was a nice day.

I am still catching up here, and will be throughout later this afternoon & evening. Sending lots of hugs to you, Christmas buddies. Take care!

Have a blessed day!!
I am relieved to hear she is doing better. It must have been really good to spend time with your friends.

That's unusual!!! We might have ice cream for supper tonight! Hubby won't want anything warm after working outside all day!! And I haven't been to the ice cream store in town alll summer & it's about to close for the year! EEK!!!!

Make it a great day!

Yeah I agree, you can't let the cream shop close without having some!

The shop was full of decorations, trees, ornaments...just everything! While the others spent their time spending money in clothes/jewellery, gift or book shops, I spent all mine in the Christmas shop. What a great way to spend a lovely weekend.
How wonderful that must've been!! What a lovely surprise!!

Evening everyone! I am just making dinner so popping in quickly. I am making vegetarian sausages,butternut sqaush/Potatoe mash, yorkshire puddings and vegetables.

Looking forward to getting a little time out after the kids go to bed. My youngest has been so cranky of late and on top of him waking up at 3am every morning it's been a little tough.

The screen of my digital camera has been smashed, I think it might of been the baby playing with it. I don't know when it happened. Anyway DH ordered a new screen and it came today . He is hoping that he can replace it . I hope that is the only problem with it and it works! Fingers crossed. It was a christmas gift from DH a couple years ago.

I hope you all are having a good day. Back to making dinner and bath time for the children. DH won't be home from work till late.

Hey, I eat all the cookies, but don't finish the milk.


I will be back later.

Enjoy your day!!!!
I hope your doctor appointment goes well!

A warm day ahead. Temperatures are to only be in the mid 70s but lower 90s with humiex. It should be interesting! No big plans for today. I'll keep applying for jobs. I also have a doctor's appointment in just over an hour. It's routine active release therapy appointment on my knee. It was a little sore about a week ago but it has since calmed down. Everything should be good!

I think I should be getting ready though. I only have about 30 minutes to get ready. Have a great morning everyone! Enjoy your Tuesday!
I hope your knee heals 100%!

Good to hear from you and glad you are doing well!

Really? Then why does Made keep sending me a report card with bad marks? I have a failing grade on the subject, "Replying to Post on the Christmas Countdown".

Ha ha! Kidding, of course!

Catacea, I have not done a good job keeping up either and hate when I miss big news. It's okay! MerryCarey is right, nobody's keeping score! Please stop by often and never feel obligated to reply to everything. We are just glad you are here! =)
