********** MILESTONE DAY **********



Good Milestone Morning, Declining Balance Friends!

Check out the numbers:
Days to the Season: 37
Days to Christmas Day: 79

We - Have - Arrived.
THE HOME STRETCH HAS STARTED!
Ninety percent of our journey has been completed and nothing -- not a single further Milestone -- stands between us and the begining of Christmas Season 2013, barely over a month away now!
(Can it be? Can it really be??)

A very brief hard rain fell last night.
This morning has started damp but without active precipitation.
We stand at a warmish 73 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Folks!

Good Afternoon MMC Gang!

How are you?

I had a great weekend! Saturday the weather was very rainy and foggy, so I didn't feel ashamed watching TV all day. Our offical state TV channel was sending live from our biggest airport. They showed many interesting parts. Over all it was an amazing show. I liked flying and planes before but now I like it even more.

Yesterday the weather was more or less the same and I spend the day working on my travel journal. I got farther than I thought I would and I'm very happy about it.

My work day has been very busy so far, I'm just taking a short break. Anyway a week from today Im having a week holiday. Really looking forward to it.


Was anyone affected by the snow storm? I saw pictures from South Dakota and it looked like deep winter.

Weather forecast says we will have a big temperature drop around thursday. The temperature will only be around 48°, snowline will drop to about 1000-800 meters above sea level. Guess winter wants to say hello!

Last year we had the first snow in our village on October 28th.

Will be glad when Sunday comes around as all I have to do that day is clean house and prep tomatoes for freezing or can them if I buy more jars tomorrow. The walnuts are falling fast and furious and am trying to get as many as I can cleaned and dried. Slow process but well worth all the effort. Black walnuts have a stronger taste than the walnuts available in the store so you don't have to use as many in recipes. They are so good!

More tasks to finish for the store yet this evening - the busy months are here and I need to get as much ready as possible since I don't know what I need to fill in stock-wise. When I catch up on those tasks I am going to read for a bit. Started Juliet the other day. It is very good and I can't wait to get back into it.

MERRY dreams!!! Go Tigers!!!!!!
Woow you seem to have a very busy time. I hope you are able to relax and take it slow for a while.

I have been looking forward to the Bengals game since it will actually be on TV around here because they are playing the Patriots. I really hope they beat them, and now I am going to miss the game.

I think I am going to find something for dessert and relax.

I hope you all had a great day.


If any of you are heading to the premiere, have a great time tomorrow.


Good night, all.
I'm sorry to hear that your day was rough. I hope you are able to enjoy your weekend and that you have a good start into the new week.

I'm going back tomorrow for a few hours for more training. It was a bit hectic when I got home but I expected that. I'm just not use to being out of the house for that long and falling behind on all of the things that I do around here. But I'm sure I will get in to the swing of things. I am super excited because they sent me home with several votive candles to sample. I didn't open the bag until I got home and was delighted to see some Christmas scents in the bag. They gave me Season of Peace, Merry Marshmallow, Celebrate Christmas, Snowflake Cookie, Christmas Cookie, Sparkling Cinnamon, and Balsam & Cedar. I feel like I just received an early Christmas gift!!! The store smells amazing. I know it might sound strange but I feel like my mood lifted as soon as I walked in the store. I think I'm going to like it there!
I hope everyone is well and had a wonderful day!
Goodnight and sweet dreams!
Congratulations! Sounds like your start at the new job was good! I hope you that you get familiar with all the products soon.

The story book is amazing! Looks cute. ^^

Good evening everyone! It's very late here right now but I've just got back from wonderful concert of 'Boyan Ensemble of Kiev'. Despite the fact that I hadn't heard of it before, I really enjoyed the concert. It took place at the church of my university campus, and the director of the campus had offered free tickets for students so I decided to take the chance! :] The first half of the concert was very peaceful and relaxing because the ensemble performed religious songs and carols. The second half was more entertaining because it was consisted of well-known classical songs and, most importantly, of Ukrainian folk songs. I saw Ukrainian folk songs listed on the concert's leaflet and I wondered how it was going to sound like. Surprisingly, it sounded really great and fun. :] Unfortunately, I couldn't take any pictures because we sat at the back of the church. (At the time we arrived, the church was already pretty full so we couldn't find any empty seats in the front. Oh well.) I'm know having my tea, and I hope everyone is having a nice Saturday!
It sounds like it was a great concert. Do you know if they sell any CDs?

It's ok. I don't know if many of you remember, but it's been two years since he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure...and that's quite a long time to stay alive with that. He was 11...

He was there when I coached my first game, he was there when I coached my last. He was there when we met Dr. Wifey...and he was there when I proposed. He was there when we found out we were going to have a baby...and he was there when we brought her home. It was almost like he was just waiting to see her get here....to know she was ok and that we were going to be ok. I hated having to make that decision, but that is part of my job as his companion....to make the difficult decisions that will keep him comfortable. It was peaceful, we got to say goodbye....and Dr. Wifey kissed him as he went to Rainbow Bridge.

It has been a tough few days, but my brother and his wife came down to meet the baby....so that has kept us busy. Little girl is growing like a weed...and between chaning diapers, feeding, and holding...I've been swamped....but I sure do love it.

Have a great day! I will see yall later today!
I'm so sorry to hear about your dog.
