He has lots to do around the house and promised my daughter he will take her to look at more cars tomorrow after work. The girls and I are heading out to do some clothes shopping at the mall. I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!
Sounds like so much fun! I haven't been shopping for a while now - wouldn't mind doing some, heh. ^^ Hopefully you had a superb day.

Is that so? That's weird. I re-uploaded the picture, and as other people can see it, I hope you can do it too.

Not sure about everybody else, but we have almost 11.30pm here now and I'm heading to bed. I need to wake up earlier than usual tomorrow so I can't stay very late tonight. Nighty night and very merry dreams to everyone!

Tim was here yesterday and we spent all afternoon (and a good part of the evening and night) together. He left early this morning (just after 7). I miss my Tim so much!!

oh!!! I have a friend who just went (with her 3 sons and husband) and 'tagged' the Christmas tree they'll be getting in December. Yup, already people can put in orders!!

I wish it was. They had a chance with a minute left to win it and the offensive line just couldn't keep Miami away from Luck. So they lost 24-20.

Hopefully the Bronco's pull it off though!!!

Whew! Just got back from a drive to Brighton. Our workplace will be doing two hours of volunteer service for a charity there on Thursday, and I'm not familiar with the area, so I printed out a Google Map and set out with Mr. Of course, I got lost. Well, the map said a certain street was the second left, and it turned out to be the first right ... huh?! I found my way there and back home again, but I don't know if I'll find it again on Thursday!

I have two nice afghans here that my MIL no longer has space for. They're freshly laundered, but they're used and show a little wear. I don't have space for them either, but I hate to think of tossing them out. (That's sunshine, not a stain, on the green one.)

(the outlaws aren't going) (that's ok, b/c I don't feel like dressing up today!) The open house is for people who were their neighbors when they lived at home w/ their parents. Cheers to 50 years!!

I am excited - I just planned a "60th birthday bike ride & dinner" for my brother who passed away last year. He would be 60 on Wednesday - Sept. 18th. He was a big bike (bicycle) rider! (also motorcycle, but that's another story...lol) I texted all my brother/sister/nieces/nephews/parents & invited them to our trailer at the lake Wed night & they will have to pay $$$ (donate whatever they want) to ride the bike path & dinner after - the $$$ will go to Mike's Scholarship fund at WSU! I am making a BBQ Chicken Lasagna (they will be guinea pigs) & I'm not sure what else. (pending what everyone brings) It will probably take more than 1 pan of lasagna, so I will make another type of lasagna too - maybe buffalo chicken or Mexican lasagna or just plain ol lasagna - or maybe spaghetti?!? I'm really looking fwd to it. And I told them if the weather is good & anyone wants to stick around, we'll have movie night - watching a movie on the big screen!! YAY!!! AND I think I'll use a vacation Wednesday too - early morning walk, coffee on the patio, then I'll start cooking! Who else is coming???


I'm off to read posts...I hope you are all having a GREAT weekend!!!!
What a lovely event, Holiday!! It's beautiful how you do something special like that to honor him.
I want to come, too!!

((Hugs))

Good luck finding your charity event in Brighton on Thursday, just give yourself plenty of time, and I'm sure you'll do great!

so glad you had a nice visit.
Tagging your tree makes sense, doing it while there is no snow to plow through or hide what the tree really looks like is better.

those are so nice, why not give them to a local women's shelter if you have one?

we are going to have breakfast for supper tonight because my eldest is working nights and just got up so this is morning for her even though it is really evening so breakfast is supper for us and breakfast for her. Then she has to be at work at 8pm and works until 7am so I thought she could use some good energy before this long shift.
