Morning! I hope your energy levels are back up once you adjust to the change in climate. How are you finding ''Fall of Giants '' by Ken Follet. I have read his novel ''World Without End'' and thought it was really good!
Yes, I'm sure my energy level will be up again.

So far I love the book (though I skip some of the lengy historical parts, as I read a lot non fiction on that thopic). Can' t wait to read "winter of the world" the sequel. I mostly like Ethels and Mauds story lines at the moment.

"World without end" and "Pillars of the world" are my least favourite books of him. I don't know I just didn't like the time in which those two played. But Follett has many amazing books.

Hope you all have a great day!

I try to do this each year, but each year the christmas season seems to get more stressful.

I hope you and I are both able to slow down.

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

Happy October 1st!!

I worked pretty late last night on my part-time business, not getting home till after 9pm. I thought I was tired, but Elizabeth was up till almost 11pm doing homework. It's that way every night anymore. Even on weekends. She could probably get it done sooner if she quit dancing, but why should she have to give up something she loves that much? I'm so sad for her.

It's fitting that it's October now, since Netflix just released Season 3 of The Walking Dead. I love that show! I've been watching it as quick as I can so I can catch up before Season 4 starts. I'll DVR it from now on, and I won't have to wait another year for it to hit Netflix.

More work to do this afternoon, and I have to pickup Elizabeth and a bunch of girls from school and take them to a bible study...At Bernie's store! Upstairs in the coffee shop, actually. It's very nice up there, I need to post a couple pix of that, too.

I hope y'all have a great day!

You are writing a book? Really? That's sooo cool.



I love candles which smells like apple, cinnamon (not tooo much), sugar and so one. But candles which smells like warm food (meat etc.) just don't agree with me.



Can I go with you? Being in this shop would be like being in heaven! I'm a chocaholic!
Of course you can!! We'd love to have you join us!! 🎁

Good morning everyone! Happy October! it does not feel very fallish here today we are mild in the 70's. But a storm system is coming through tonight and the next few days with rain chances and cloudy weather. Lows will be in the upper 30's and highs in the 50's. Almost cold enough to snow at night but not quite yet!! The leaves are still changing and just now beginning to drop. By Halloween I think they will all be bare. I have a bad headache today at work so not feeling so good. Hope everyone is doing good though!
