Check it out:

Wow! They did a fantastic job with the make over of the old barn, I wish I could see it for myself, it looks like a really neat place....

Bon Matin, Mes Amis.

Well, pardon my French and get a load of this:
Days to the Season: 174
Days to Christmas Day: 216
And mark it well -- the 200-day Christmas Day Milestone is just 2 weeks from the day after tomorrow.
(Put that in your Christmas pipe and let the smoke encircle your heads!)

More rain fell yesterday but it was light. Did not prevent me from mowing the lawn.
It was a bit more humid, however, and we are no doubt starting to move toward a Summer situation in that regard.
We show just under 70 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.

Have a Thrilling Thursday, Everyone.
(Weekend Eve tomorrow you know!)

And her sister is right behind her. My youngest will be a senior next year. Its crazy.
Anyway, hope I don't have too much running around to do tomorrow. I have some chores to catch up with.
Hope everyone is having a relaxing evening so far!
I find that often the days when I have nothing planned end up the busiest!
Sounds like exciting times at your house, have fun!!!

Just watched my Penguins win and they are up 3-1 in the series. I hope we can close the series out on Friday!

Have a good night! Sleep well and sweet dreams!

It feels like Fall right now, with all of the rain for the past four days straight, it has really cooled down. In fact, it's only in the 50's right now.

What are you up to tonight?

My Penny is that way, she is 3 years old now and still looks and acts like a kitten, always tearing around the house and pouncing on poor Abby.LOL

And so many companies, agencies, faith groups, and individuals are out helping. I'm overwhelmed by the kindness right now.

I also gave several interviews...one to a tv station and the other to CBS radio. I'm guessing I will look crazy and made no sense, but oh well!

I think Carl has some fired twinkies with my name on them and has the hot tub warmed up so I'm off to enjoy!
I cannot imagine what everyone is going through, it is great to hear of all the help pouring in.
Many ((((HUGS)))) and prayer for you all.
