I really try to not let it tire me out but it hasn't worked yet.

The good news.... The heat makes me think of Christmas even more!!! We just watched Snowglobe, Home Alone and now A Christmas Story. I say "watch", it's actually just going while we are busy with other things, just nice to hear it in the background!

I am really missing you all but starting Wednesday I will be even more busy. I will do my best to visit more!

Have a merry day my Christmas friends!

There's my dishwasher!!!!!!!!!

Good evening, everyone! How are you all doing? I am well. Just sitting here relaxing, after keeping busy all day around the house. I'm still working on some laundry.

How has your day been going? Mine has been going well. Nothing is new here. I am off tonight yet, then I go back to work tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to that!!! I work 6 days straight then. Booo! Oh well - that's what you get for going on vacation!

What are you all up to tonight? I'm not going to do much since I've been busy all day. I'm going to relax - I'll be busy again tomorrow, so tonight I will relax!

Well, I am waiting on DH and the kids to come back from my in-laws - they kept Ella all week while we were away. I can't wait to see her. They are bringing dinner as well. I will be back later to chat with you guys. God Bless and keep smiling!

Good afternoon from rain-soaked mid-Michigan!

There has been a quiet soaking rain off and on since late last night - great for the gardens. I walked around outside after I got home - I think the tomato plants all grew an inch or more! I spent the morning running errands and looking for store stock - found a few things that just need a good cleaning and also found a pile of Magic Crochet magazines. I am really tempted to keep those as there are some wonderful patterns in them and if I ever got around to making the items, they would make great Christmas gifts!

Be safe and MERRY!!!
