Hope you all have a great night and please go easy on poor Made.

I know what you mean I have re started on my cross trainer last week after not being on it for a few months. It really tires you out at first but hang in there it will get easier. Soon the effects will be the opposite and we will be bursting with energy!

It's wonderful Wednesday, we are halfway through the week again!

Great news, DH was able to replace the screen to my Digi Camera and it is working fantastic now! Love him so much , he never fails me!

I am doing my weekly online shop and I just noticed that they added another christmas section - Christmas Bakery. There are already some lovely festive goodies on there. It made my day! Wow guys , it really is beginning to look alot like christmas!

I have decided to repaint our living room. It needed touching up (kids!) so I am going to change the colour and get new wallpaper for the chimney breast. It won't be too much of a big job as the room is small. Anyway I want to get it done before Halloween.

Ok well I'm off to get a few things done but I will be in and out of here through out the day as usual You all make great company, thank you!

Happy Pines Day!

not feeling good this morning . I have to go to work at 10 am but not sure at this point I would make it standing there all day. But I cannot afford to take a whole day off. Why can I not get sick on a day I only have 4 hours.
Maybe in an hour or so I will feel better.
Going to be supper hot again today and humid again. It is already 22c (71f) feeling like 31c (87f) and the sun is not even up yet.

Ohh no , just last last night I was saying to DH it is only a matter of time that we get our first colds in the house. We always get sick around this time of year when the weather changes. I really hope you feel better soon. Don't push yourself, if you need to go home then so be it.

Good Morning, Perpetually Pumped-Up 'Pines Patrons!

Can we be at mid-week again?
Can we be almost to the middle of September already?
.......Can we be this close to Christmas Season 2013??

Days to the Season: 63
Days to Christmas Day: 105

And last, but certainly not least, can we be only FIVE DAYS away from the 100-day Christmas Day Window and a double-double count?

Well, Carl says come to the 'Pines this evening and find out.
(Now what that camel can possibly mean by that escapes me.
But over time, I've learned not to second-guess our ever-resourceful 'Pines activites director.)

More warm and humid each day, but only to a point, the weather service says.
By the weekend, we are predicted to get a nice early touch of Fall.
Our thermometer tells us it is 70 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Friends near and far!
And try to make it to the 'Pines this evening, if you can.

Spoken like a man PRE- fatherhood! Sleep late? Get up when you want to? Finish a coffee while it's still hot, or even find time to make one?.......kiss it all goodbye mate! LOL!
