I got home just in time to put on a tie and watch Jacob get inducted into the National Honor Society. It was a nice ceremony. After that, we went to Nancy's parents' house for supper.

I hope to cut the grass today. It looks crazy!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Congratulations to Jacob!!!

Good morning!
The house is so chilly this morning! The temperatures have been dipping down in to the 40's at night but it has been warming up in to the upper 60's during the day. We still haven't turned the heat on, my hubby wants to wait until its a bit cooler during the day. I can't wait to see how the radiant heat in the floor is going to work. I hope we like it after all the work my husband did.
Not too much going on today. I already walked the dogs and went to the supermarket for a few things. I saw a gingerbread haunted house kit while I was there. I think I may pick one up next time, they are so cute! I need to get started on some household chores soon. And my daughter has a job interview at the outlets this afternoon and I'm going to take a ride with her. There is a Christmas Tree Shop there and I always like to walk around and see what they have.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Congratulations to Jacob! How late in the year do you have to cut grass?

I am signing off here shortly to go pick up the kids. They were scheduled for daycare and Pre-K today. I don't know what we will do for dinner yet. I guess it will be up to them.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening! God Bless and talk soon!
Oh man! Going back to work after a week off is the pitts! Hope you had a good night!

The mall sounds miserable - now the turkey & movies sound great! What did you watch?

Today, my wife and I put up the outdoor Christmas lights today. We don't turn them on until November 1st. The holiday light plug the Mike Holmes gave us is amazing. It automatically turns the lights on November 1st at 4:30 pm and turns them off at 2am every morning. I like it when we get home from somewhere and the lights have been turned on.

We also had Rogers install their home security system with 2 cameras at the front and back door. Whenever someone opens the door, I get a video message to my phone. Since the accident, it gives me a nice sense I'd security. Also, I love technology...so it's basically a new toy. It has a tablet device at the front door that tells you the weather and traffic reports. Amazing.

Well, I hope everyone is doing well.
Sounds great! I love to see/hear that someone is putting up CHRISTMAS lights!!! Hope all is well with you!

Happy Tuesday y'all. This is a such a great time of the year. Playoff baseball on TV/Radio every night and soon the World Series. Although I'm no Dodger fan, love listening to Vince Scully broadcast their games on radio (satellite radio is great), while watching it on TV with no volume. Scully has been the voice of the Dodgers since 1952. It is great to hear his old stories.

We should have some great weather coming up. Starting Thursday our forecast highs are the mid 60s with lows in the 30s. Can't wait until the first frost. The long range forecast has us having below average temps.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Good morning MMC! Our day started out with a beautiful sunrise & within minutes the sun was gone & we haven't seen it since. It's really foggy now! Crazy weather. We are supposed to hit 72 today but unless the sun comes out, I have my doubts. This is the last day predicted to hit 70's in the 10 day forcast. I have a feeling our furnace will be getting more use by the end of the week!

I went to the garden after work last night & picked some HUGE tomatoes! We aren't getting a whole lot of maters anymore, but some of them were just huge! More fesh salsa coming up! Then I mowed the lawn! Then I changed up the seasons & I finally got my Fall & Halloween decs up in the house! I turned on Christmas music & decorated it up!

After that, I watched Halloweentown on Disney while working on my Christmas afghan. I had never seen that before. It's cute!

Not much going on today. My boss' were in a tizzy by the time I walked in the door this morning...GREAT...so it's been "one of them days" already! Ha ha!

Hope you are all having a great Tuesday!! I'm off to read more posts from last night!

a cold front is coming and I am eager for the crisp, cool weather. I want to focus on Halloween but my thoughts keep drifting to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I just can't help it. Have a great day everyone.
