First of all , I have been thinking of all of you experiencing severe weather. Stay safe you guys.

It is still grey , damp and dull here but compared to what some of you are experiencing, I am not complaining!

Baby Isaac and I are going to try and tidy up the garden today.....which usually means I've got a toddler covered in leaves and dirt by the end of it LOL.

Ok , well have a good day everyone !!!!

I always loved doing stuff with my kids, yes it never looked perfect, the rows were crooked, flowers trampled but it was always the most beautiful garden I ever saw!

My kids were raised by just me and my daughter made me cry the other day when she said "mom, we had so much fun growing up!" This from a kid who never got new clothes or a chance to take those ballet lessons she wanted, who often only had biscuits and jam to eat.

So keep doing those little things with your kids, that is what they will remember when they grow up.

Hump Day for the Hump Meister.

What else is today?
Well, let the stats speak for themselves:
Days to the Season: 175
Days to Christmas Day: 217
Now under 2.5 weeks remain until the 200-day Christmas Day Milestone.
(So moving in on that auspicious marker!)

A bit warmer yesterday with less of the wet stuff.
It would be nice to string several dry days together to get some outside work done!
We read 69 degrees here currently and the skies look ready to rain again.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Folks.
See you at the 'Pines!
Thank you Crown from one Middle-of-the-Weeker and 'Pines Anticipator!
Hopping you have a great dry day!

Thinking of you!
Thank your Snowflake. I was also anemic when I was younger, maybe thats all it is.

Hello everyone!
It is going to be warm today, temperatures in the upper 70's and a chance of a thunderstorm. I was walking the dogs this morning and heard some rumbles of thunder. I got so nervous because I forgot to bring an umbrella. Thankfully it never started to rain.
I am going to Target this morning for some things and then to the Hallmark store for a few cards. Then back home to make a pot of sauce. Every Wednesday and Sunday is macaroni day in our house.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Love the way you put that! My kids are grown and tell me the same. We really did have a blast while they were growing up! We all still do have a blast together!
