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.
Hope you feel better Christmasstar.

I haven't seen the commercial on TV yet, but there is "controversy" about it. It is just ridiculous.

I read about it on Defend Christmas and Real Christmas.

Binger, praying for your niece!

Gabulldawg, I hope you get well soon. I saw that same Christmas Kmart commercial last night! Happy times! =)

Good morning,

Just biding my time before going in to work. It will be a hot one today, in the 90's.
I received a call from my Dr, and my cholesterol is "mildly elevated" so I am going to have to change my diet to bring it down. C'est la vie

I have to get motivated for work soon.

Oh my! Just horrible they dare put out a commercial like this.

I did see it last night and I was excited!

Do they have anything better to do with their time than sit around sulking over a commercial that last 31 seconds? I mean, come on! There is nothing offensive about it. I don't have a problem if they thought to themselves that it was a little early but to make a public fuss about it and cause an uproar??? There are serious problems in the world and this is not one of them! It makes me wonder if they are miserable people 24/7.

Now I am making a fuss over people fussing! Ha ha! Rant over.

Hello everyone. It is going to be hot and humid here today, with a high of 90 degrees. It is supposed to cool off by Friday.
Not too much going on for me today, typical day of errands and chores.
I am having my coffee right now, watching the September 11th ceremonies. I can't believe it has been 12 years. It is so important to remember the victims, survivors and those who continue to fight for our freedom, today and always. May all who perished rest in peace. God Bless America.

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!
AWESOME your hubby was able to fix your camera. YAY!!! Great find on the Christmas Bakery! YAY!! Take pictures of your family room when you are done!!! It's always a relief when it's done!!!

I did see the Kmart commercial a couple times. Makes me smile!!!! I also love the Hallmark commercial for the Countdown to Christmas. I hope the stone(s) passes quickly on their own!!!

The temps are finally dropping, around 94 degrees for the high today and I am actually a little happier about that. It will be right at 90 for the high this weekend. Maybe this is a sign that our triple digits are finally coming to an end!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi! Have a Merry Day!
Well, at least you got coffee made before the electric went out. Lol! Enjoy your "cool" weather. Have a Merry Day yourself!

I am happy about the "cool down" of 94 and you are in a heat wave of 95! I am not thrilled with 94 but it's a lot better than that over 100 stuff! The weather guy just actually said cold front this weekend. Cold front? The high will be 90! I better get my winter coat out!
Ha ha ha!!!

Well said! I watched it for a couple hours this morning. It's just heart breaking. I had to turn it off! Makes me too sad - and I'm at work! It is hard to believe it has been 12 years! Seems like yesterday watching it all over again! Enjoy your day!

Good morning everyone!

It should be a warm one today. Temperatures are to reach into the upper 30s/90s with humidex. Strangely enough, we're only suppose to reach about 14c/57f on Friday. Such a change!

Kim and I were suppose to visit Tinseltown, Ottawa's year-round Christmas store, today, however she has yet to awaken. She has to work sometime later this afternoon, so I am hoping that she wakes up soon. Apparently, Tinseltown has plenty of their 2013 Christmas decorations now on display. I'm quite excited to see them! Of course, I will take pictures but since we are so close to the Blossoms thread, I am contemplating to hold off posting them until Crown debuts my favourite thread of the year!

Hopefully we can go soon! I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! It's 'Pines Day! Only two more remain in the month of September!
