Good morming Christmas friends! I slept like a freakin rock last night. I guess working all day got me tired out. I have just rolled out of bed and have not had breakfast yet,I am going out for breakfast and I will pass my local gas station on the way. I noticed on the news last night that national ave is $3.33 a gallon. I always though the southeast was below the average so I am surprised that ours is 3.40 right now. Anyways I am going to a different church than mine this morning, a good buddy of mine is getting baptised in a baptist church,and he asked all if us to go. Since I have never been(I'm catholic) I am looking forward to going and expierancing something new. I always like the music at church, the hyms and the singing, and I have been to alot of different churches and faiths,but not baptist. I hope everyone has a great morning..oh the weather I almost forgot! it is a cool but comfy 48F outside and very foggy.not looking forward to the 85F today,that is way too warm for late feb. And we are also in the last 2 days of the month,I hope march brings us more rain and wind. The year is moving right along quickly!Have a good day everyone!!

Can't help but notice the gas prices go up when the weather starts getting nice and people start to drive more, going on vacations and stuff. And they wonder why everybody thinks they are price gouging.

I use to make those all the time! I would prepare them the night before. It is so cool, you just add in all the ingredients you want, mix them up and then the next day is so easy! Just pop it in some boiling water.

Good morning!

Omelets are done! I mean, like, gone in my belly done. That's the best way for an omelet to be! Wifey isn't up yet, so she can have hers when she gets up....

Sunday is my favorite time of the week....very relaxing....quite....and seeing as how the 25th was Friday, I'm watching some Christmas shows...

This afternoon, I'm going to play outside and do a little yardwork. They are calling for storms later this afternoon, so I better get out there and enjoy it!

Good Morning, Christmas Comrades.
Rise, shine and......well, you know the routine.

Calm, sunny and beautiful outside here at this hour where we stand at a nice, light-jacket-walkable 57 degrees.
Last day for the sun however, and we are in for 2 days of rain starting tonight, according to the weather service.

On with the count, which just goes on and on and......
Days to the Season: 259
Days to Christmas Day: 301
TOMORROW, guys! The 300-day Milestone!!
(Goodness, Toto! Milestones come and go so quickly around here!)

Well, Folks. I hope you have a Rousing (or Restful, depending on your preference) Rest of the Weekend.
And a Super Sunday, to boot!

I agree!! I was thinking the same thing when they rose so quickly last week. Every spring they go up,i Don't know for sure but it does make you wonder why in Jamuary when people stop traveling they usually go down then in spring and summer they go up..

Good morning, Christmas friends. It is sunny and cold here in northern California. Tomorrow we have snow in the forecast, but as I've said before, I'll believe it when I see it. But I can still hope. It's Knights of Columbus day at church today, so hubby and I will go this morning to Mass. Normally we go on Saturday nights. We will have a brunch afterwards. Hope y'all have a great day.
