I wish but it's been pretty boring here.

Outside I met DD's head of daycare, where she went from 12 weeks through 5 years old. She rolled down her window & said, "I have on the earrings you bought me!" We gave them to her one year as a Christmas gift, so that was at least four Christmases ago! It made me happy to know that she still thinks of us after all those years & children that have come through the daycare. Always take time to think of a good gift for people, they will remember you for it!
That is so true whitney!! Great story!!

It is supposed to cool down a lot more tonight, so it will be the perfect time. I only have pint jars, but there aren't a lot of tomatoes ready so all should be good.

Off to take care of a few things around the house.

Be MERRY!!!
Hope you have a great afternoon, friend!! And maybe a quick nap to refresh =]

Hope it goes fast for you, Spyells!

My day has been ok, the weather is beautiful so I'm trying to do as much as possible on the deck. Even job searching, lol.

Oh come on, I would have no idea how to take my voice and run it through a series of filter's on the computer to make it sound like Carl's. I would also have no idea how to program my phone to make it show up as the phone number for the pines on someone else's caller id. I'm just not that cunning.

What a lucky guy!! Nancy refused to let me buy the one with the starship model in it...it was $40 vs. $20 for the Blue Ray...but Christmas isn't too far away!

My day just got a whole lot better. I just read that J.K. Rowling is going to write the screenplay for the movie, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." I also read that the Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Studios Orlando will open in Spring 2014. All of a sudden, the three hours between my classes doesn't feel so long anymore. I think Christmas just came early.

So busy today ... I can feel my brain slowing down. I hope I'm released by 5:30 tonight. I have more things to get done at home, though.

Could be some nasty storms tonight. We'll see what happens.

I faithfully went through the posts since last night. The day wouldn't be complete if I didn't read about my favorite people.
