Good morning, everyone! Coffee is brewing, clothes are ironed, and I'm about to be out the door. Weather is supposed to be nice, so maybe martin watching in my future for this afternoon.

Have a great Monday!

Good New Week Morning, Folks.

Onward -- ever onward -- we march back to Christmas, our chosen Meca.

And to mark our steps, the following is presented for your approval without commercial interruption:
Days to the Season: 219
Days to Christmas Day: 261
Barely over 2 1/2 weeks away now from the 1/3 Christmas Day marker.
Add one more day, and you see the 200-day Season Window opening.
Wow!
So much to look forward to so soon!

Our fantastic weather continues.
(In fact, I'm hesitant to say to much about it for fear of jinxing it!)
Suffice it to say, we are currently at 57 degrees here in the capital city.

You have a Marvelous Monday, Friends.
Just keep Christmas Season 2013 in your minds, and you'll do just fine!

LOL, my daughter might not agree with you! For the most part I am a fairly calm person, takes a lot to get me rattled. I do enjoy a challenge!

How was everyone's day? All is well here. As I know with everyone else, I thought of Louann a lot. Things throughout the day reminded me of her and being here with you guys truly helps. I thank you all so much for being here for me, as I will continue to be here for you, if you need a shoulder to lean on. That's what friends are for!

I hope you all have a great day tomorrow. I am signing off to go get ready for work. God Bless you all. Keep smiling - praying for all you, your families, and furbabies!
I had a quiet day, spent most of it hanging out here and watching TV after chruch.
I too am so grateful for everyone here and all the shoulders to cry on and to share memories with.

Enjoy your martins this afternoon! have a fabulous day Coach!


good a.m. y'all!!!!

I hope the morning finds y'all all feeling good, content, & happy!

tomorrow is my baby boy's 21st birthday!!! Wow, can't believe it. I cooked his birthday dinner last night. fried cube steak, gravy, mashed potatoes, crock pot mac & cheese, biscuits, & green beans. it was his request. sounds more like a heartattack, doesn't it? Seth tries to fit in all his favorites @ 1x, lol. way too many carbs & fat but it's what he wanted. I will be making his birthday cake today. Strawberry is his favorite. I hope the berries are pretty & sweet, that makes a huge difference!
baby girl is headed back to school today. she had her spring break last week. No fuss from her getting up this morning, SHOCKER!

Will is going to the city police station today for his interview w/ the 4 captains. He's very nervous/anxious.He went & bought some new dress slacks yesterday for it. His sportcoat is too small. I was hoping he would be able to wear it & look "professional" but, NOT! aahh, it's ok, I think he will look nice in what he has picked out.
I had trouble getting to sleep last night. who knows what today has in store for me now....possibly a nap later, lol.


I hope everyone has a super-dooper day! Love & hugs all around!

Hey Star! you & Sugar are right, it does help being able to come here & have someone to talk to. I certainly don't know what I would do w/out y'all! how's your new job going Star?
