I will be selling close to 10,000lbs of turkeys and we are ready for it. Who needs a gym when you are lifting at least 60 something cases of 50+lbs of turkeys a day.

Home life it is getting the prep ready for Halloween, and yes, Christmas. I preordered myself a copy of Straight No Chaser's new Christmas CD. We are choosing what to get the boys for Christmas, which is a lot clearer than it was a week ago.
Also, one of my favorite Christmas season desserts is in the stores again!!! The Friendly's Jubilee Roll!!!
After cutting the first slice!!!
It is just ice cream but we love it here, Friendly's home office is in the next town, and it is just a part of the holidays.

I need to get to bed, I have a very busy few days still to go before a day off. (Tuesday)

I will try to pop in tomorrow at some point.

Good night all!!!
I saw the Jubilee Roll at my supermarket last week. It's gluten free so I can eat it too! And we also love the "Wattamelon" Roll. We always have to have that Wattamelon roll during the summer!!

The international lunch sounds like a lot of fun, I hope it goes well.
Enjoy the time with your friend this evening, let us know what you end up making for dessert!

read my work schedule wrong, I thought I did not have to be to work until noon, but I have to be in at 9:30. So I will have to catch up here later.
Have a good day everyone!

Hi Snow,

I have a fun weekend planned. Tomorrow morning I'm going to the monthly men's prayer breakfast at my church. I hardly ever make it to that breakfast so I'm looking forward to it. Tomorrow night a Halloween party and Sunday I'm taking a road trip with a friend to Galena, IL. It's such an adorable and charming little town. I'm hoping for a beautiful fall day.

How about you, anything fun planned?
I hope you have a nice time at the prayer breakfast this morning!
And at your Halloween party, and on your road trip! Hope it's a beautiful fall drive. Sounds like a wonderful time all around =]

I work this weekend, but we are going out for lunch today, and watching some football tomorrow evening, so it will still be nice.

xx

Mwah hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!

Then I found my husband on the couch in the den, the tv was on and he was sound asleep. What a lively bunch we are. Getting old stinks. And of course after I settled back in to bed I was wide awake and tossed and turned for the rest of the night. Then one of my cats jumped on my night table at about 3:00 a.m. and I swear she was looking at something in my room, but there was nothing there. Unless she saw a ghost, lol. My cats do that once in a while and it really freaks me out. Anyway, its probably going to be a long day. My goal is to get all of my daily chores done and go food shopping at some point. I will be happy if I get that done.
I hope everyone is well and has a happy Saturday!!!
Hope you can take a nap at some point!!

Harlowe does that too, and it freaks me out!! Have you ever seen The Haunted on The Animal Planet?! Hmmmm.....

You had me chuckling about being a lively bunch! Lol. I feel the same way sometimes.

Have a great weekend, friend.

Extra hugs & prayers for Maggie! Hope she has a good day 💜
