Morning everyone! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Seawaters you are in my thoughts As usually love reading what everyone is up to. Courage and strength to everyone having a tough time.

It is snowing here ! I don't know where this sudden winter spell has come from especially as this week has been very much spring *puzzling*
I love the snow but I am ready for Spring now. My mom is visiting from abroad so I am hoping the bad weather doesn't impact on her trip - fingers crossed.

Okay well have a great weekend everybody !

Good Morning, Wacky Weekend Wonders!

And there is absolutely, positively no better way to start one's weekend than with a healthy happy heaping helping of the daily count figures.

As such, submitted for your approval:
Days to the Season: 235
Days to Christmas Day: 277
The day after tomorrow, Guys -- the 1/4 Christmas Day Milestone will arrive right on schedule.
Superlative!

Still coldish with no end in sight for the near future.

An unexpected warm spell in the fall is called "Indian Summer".
What do you call an unexpected cold spell in the spring?
<< "Uncomfortable", Crown? >>
OK......I'll buy that.

We are at 41 degrees here, currently.

Have a Sensational Saturday, Friends!

I got up, got dressed in a new outfit, and fainted before I got to the breakfast table. I really wanted to go over to Suzanne's so badly that I was willing to go to school sick. Needless to say, I didn't go to the sleepover!
That's funny Seawaters, although I'm sure it wasn't at the time. But yeah, thats pretty much the rule around here. If they stay home from school because they are sick, then they can't go out at night!

I would think you would love it as an excuse to cuddle under the covers for a long winter's nap!

Good morning everyone!
I am going to bundle up and walk the dogs in a few minutes. Had them out back and its so cold. At least the sun is out. My hubby left for work already and my oldest also has to go in for a few hours. Not too much going on for me. I definitely need to food shop, I have nothing in the house. Maybe a quick visit to my parents house too.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Good Morning, MMC!!

It's a beautiful Saturday morning here, still quite cool, but calm & sunny.

I'm having my morning coffee, and watching ID. I'm so addicted to this channel.

What are your plans for the day?

I am going to meet my sister Shannon, and niece Alyssa, in Arcadia, Wisconsin for lunch. That's approximately halfway between Eau Claire & LaCrosse. Only an hour's drive.

Arcadia is known for being the headquarters of Ashley Furniture. I love that place! When we were ready to buy a kitchen table, about 8 years ago in Vegas, we went to the Ashley Furniture Homestore there. We still have it & love it! Our friends were trying to talk us into selling it to them before we moved.

So, does anybody need any new furniture? I think that we'll eat @ Ashley's pub. I didn't even know they had one. But, My sister has a co-worker who says that their restaurant had the best food in town. Kind of funny. This is small town USA, afterall.

Made, are you still good with your recliners?!

Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous day!!
