I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

Congratulations! I would love to work for yankee candles! I hope your daugthers will have successful job interviews.

@Christmasstar: Our TV channel news are talking about it all the time as well. I've heard enough about the political side. It's like the kids in kindergarden. It makes me angry even though I'm not a US citizen. Now I'm more interested in the day to day life of "normal" US citizen. Can't imagine something like this happening in my country.

Just send all my presents to me now so you can have that space back. No need to wait for Christmas to give them to me.

My day so far has been very busy and I hadn't time to look into the forum. I'll try to read all your posts later. Half of my co-workers were on a meeting outside the office and we had to split all the work between two people.

Ah welll, tomorrow is another day.

At least I got the news, that I will receive my ordered Homeland season one DVD shortly.
Good morning, Cetacea!!

We are not directly affected, but my sister-in-law is. Praying her job is ok. They let a bunch of other people go yesterday. She works for an army/military training center.
And my close friend works for the county-praying for her job. She is in Las Vegas right now, though!! Hopefully having FUN!!

Enjoy your DVD!!

Have a great day

It sounds funny to say but it happens every now and then. I don't like it at all, but it's not the first shut down and won't be the last. I know folks who are missing work because of all this so I'm ready for it to end!

I know it has happened more than once. Which makes it more difficult to understand, at least in my option.

I do hope for everyone, who is in any way affected by it, that the whole thing will be solved soon.

I have forgot to post pictures from the new Santas I have got in the last 2 months or so.

The tall one is one I got an incredible deal at Goodwill, and the other is one I won on Ebay it is a Possible Dreams Santa & Rudolph.



If you see he still has his original tags from JCPenney still on him.


Rudolph's nose really glows!!!!




I can't wait to decorate these around the house.

But it looks like it'll be another gorgeous fall day here, so I'll try to wake up with a cup of strong tea and do my best today.
I didn't sleep well either last night and coincidentally I also had very strange dreams! I hope you rest better tonight!

I hope things are better at work for you tomorrow! I am so hooked on Homeland! The new season 3 starts here on Sunday and we are counting down the days. I just watched the final episode of season 2 again last night so I could refresh my memory.

My headache is gone, and it is a sunny warm day, suppose to be in the mid 80's today.
I hope you all have a good Wednesday.
Hope it goes really fast for you. Once you get Wednesday over with then the weekend is almost here!
