Wow!!! Is about what I can sum up from yesterdays HSN CIJ!!!! That had to have kept the administrators here just a tad busy yesterday trying to keep up with all the posts, and making sure that we are all on good behavior; lol...I'm sure we raised a few eyebrows....

I was cracking up so much, especially with the conversations between Binger and Jayish..all I can say is thank you to the following for providing sooooo much entertainment from yesterdays event; Made582, Xmas365, Christmasstar, Shellie12, Meceka, Holiday, Sugar142286, XmasDreams, Xmastidings, Christmas-A-Holic, Snowflake22, Trackrebel, Ryan and to anyone else that I did not list nor I could not keep track of....You are all are pretty wonderful bunch and that was some Christmassy cool entertainment here, for the middle of July!!!!

My goodness, the Lord only knows what will be awaiting for us once QVC kicks off their CIJ and Binger recoups from all of yesterdays excitement....

Good Morning to each and everyone! It's Thursday, It's 7:00am and it's hot already outside and we are one more day closer to Friday....

I felt like I needed a little bit of Christmas first thing this morning so I have Live365 - (Christmas and Then Some) tuned in and they are currently playing Andy Williams "Its the Most Wonderful Time"...

Also, I was looking at the Hagerstown Almanac last night and we have lost (since June 21st) about 30 minutes of daylight already. Yup, in all reality, the days are starting to get shorter which will mean that in just a month or two, the fall produce will be starting to come in which will then usher in the Fall and cooler temperatures; ahhh I cannot wait, I soooo much Love the Fall!!!!

Good morning!
The weather today will be the same as it has been. Sunny, hot and humid with temperatures in the 90's.
Today is my daughters last day of drivers Ed. We are both kind of happy about that. Not too much planned for me, typical day of errands and chores. I need to make a menu plan for next week and write out a grocery list too.
Hope everyone stays cool and has a great day!

I have definately noticed those 30 minutes we lost! My walking partner didn't show up this morning so I walked in the dark by myself for a good 20 minutes before it started to get light! UGH! Hate that part of it!!! Guess I better get use to it! We are going the wrong direction in my opinion...thankfully we have CHRISTMAS to look forward too & the Christmas lights to light up the darkness!
