If you want to throw a snowball back at someone, just go to their profile, click on snow/water battle, and you'll see a blue snowball- click on it & you hit them!!

I will for sure give Mercedes a hug for you!!!

Thank you for telling me how the snow/water balle works!

I love buying Christmas things throughout the year- you can't wait to use them for the first time!!

Goodnight & sweet dreams!

Snowflake, I have at least a dozen of those Yorkie plates from Danbury Mint. They are so pretty I couldn't stop buying them. I don't even have them all out but I do rotate them. Some are seasonal!

Good Morning, Friends for all seasons. But for one Season in particular.

One guess.

Now that you've guessed, let's see how far we are away from it:
Days to the Season: 218
Days to Christmas Day: 260
Now under 2 1/2 weeks off from Milestone #6, the 1/3 Christmas Day point.
Add a day and we reach #7, the 200-day Season mark.
So much coming so fast!
(Is it too soon to say "let's slow down a bit"?)

Still pleasantly warm. The kind of weather that makes you want to not come in from the outdoors.
Should continue through the week, with a possible rain on Friday.
Right now, we show a nice 60.8 degrees on our handy-dandy back door digital thermometer.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, All.
And savor the trip to Christmas Season 2013 along the way!

Gooooood morning. The best thing about Tuesday is that it isn't Monday!!!

Going to be beautiful here, but today is the last day for that. There is a bike ride in my future along with another afternoon of watching the birds. Hope everyone has a great day.
