That's all I got!
Wow!!! Stunning pics!!!

I have been wanting that scent for years!!!!

I can't wait to give it a sniff test.
This made me smile, I love the new scents that they come up with.

Can't believe it is monday already. Why are the weekends always over much too soon? I was much to lazy this weekend and didn't get half of the planned stuff done. I was too caught up in "Fall of Giants" by Ken Follett.

Anyway I try to stay on top of my work load today and looking forward to my evening. Tonight I won't say up long as I didn't sleep very well last night.
Hope tonight will be better for you!

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

Woof, what a busy weekend! I got up at 5:30am Saturday to take Jacob and his friend to Six Flags. They had a blast, and Nancy & I enjoyed to cool weather and time to be alone. We finally left at 8:30 pm, and everyone in the car was asleep before we got out of Atlanta. I drove till midnight by myself. *yawn*

Yesterday afternoon, I got on the tractor and harrowed up Jacob's deer hunting spot. We'll go back this afternoon to plant the seeds and setup the camera.

It's another busy day at work. I hope y'all have a great day!

I wish you all a great evening!

I'm going home in about a half hour. At home I'll have to do some chores before I can call it a night.

See you tomorrow!

A gorgeous day here, and I get to do what I want today ... I don't often get to say that on a Monday! I'll be in and out throughout the day.

Good morning!
It is going to be another sunny day with temperatures around 70 degrees. It is going to warm up over the next couple of days and be in the lower 80's by Wednesday. I hope we get some Fall like temperatures soon.
Not too much going on here today. I just started Minestrone soup in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. I have some chores to do around the house and a couple of errands. I need to go to the pet store and birthday gift shopping for my Father in law.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!
