Good Morning, Nearly Three-Quarters-To-Christmas Friends!

That as a lead-in to our rapidly closing encounter with the final Milestone before the Home Stretch.

Days to the Season: 52
Days to Christmas Day: 94
Day after tomorrow.
That's when that above-mentioned Milestone arrives!


Damp with off and on again rain yesterday. It was raining as I headed for bed with more falling during the night.
I'm hoping today will be drier but the weather service has other ideas.
Right now, we have 65 degrees here in the capital city.

Well, sadly there is still absolutely no sign that "A Christmas To Remember" will be returning this year to Crabtree.
HOWEVER, our long-anticipated Blossoms thread WILL launch some time next week.
I was at Crabtree yesterday and snapped 15 photos at Hallmark, Belks, Sears and Macy's. I'll sort through them and choose the best ones to start off the thread with.

Have a Super Sunday, Folks!

thank you everyone! My worried are more financial than anything else.I live on the edge, and was so happy to finally have two part time jobs which will make living and paying bills easier. Now to have to take a whole week off is really going to hurt. But I know I can trust the Lord to see me through this and meet my needs.

I have driven both, prefer the automatic, but the standard is really not hard to drive, just takes time and practice.

Good morning!
Looks like we had a lot of rain fall last night. It is cloudy this morning and we have a chance for more showers. I wanted to go to a local craft fair today but I'm not sure if it will be postponed since its held outside. I'll have to take a ride by and see if they are setting up.
And my daughter has an appointment later this afternoon to have her senior portraits taken again. She didn't care for the way they came out the first time. I think she is crazy, they look beautiful to me. She better be happy with the way they come out today, there is a deadline in a few weeks for submitting a picture in to the year book.
I'm excited that Fall begins today! I wasn't going to decorate because of the construction going on in the house but I think I may pull a few things out anyway.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

She will be practicing a lot today, I'm hoping she will improve by the end of the day!
