Long story short, I'm not feeling so good right now. But my yard looks good.
Hope you feel better!

Stay hydrated!!

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!!!!
Yay for shorter days! I can't wait either!

Another HOT ol day in Ohio! One more after today & then it's supposed to cool off a little!! I'm looking forward to my brother/sil coming home from Cape Cod this weekend & our family camp out!!! I have a lot of food to make between now & Saturday!! I made cookies last night...it was too hot to go outside anyway!! Hopefully tonight I can get a lot done - stuffed jalapeno's, buffalo chicken macaroni & cheese, cinnamon roll cake for sure...and I need to figure out what kind of meat to bring for the grill/fire! Oh FUN!!!
Have fun at the camp out, the food sounds yummy!

even though Harlowe and I just went on a long walk in the heat

A neighbor lady is moving to Florida, and she has been having a lot of rummage sales… @ Each time I walk by, I buy something Christmasy except for the last time...her Santa that I've been staring at was overpriced, and I really don't "need" anything else...
Until I walked by this morning!! And saw that he was marked down to three bucks!! Isn't he cute?

Attachment 1927

Anyways, need to eat breakfast & get back to working on my résumé.

Everyone, please stay cool and hydrated!!

Have a blessed day!!

xx
Cute Santa snowflake, I love it. Great deal!

I will try to pop in later to read over the Countdown, I just wanted to say hi and hope you all are having the Merriest Day EVER!!!
It's July, you can't afford to take anytime off of MMC, you blink and 10 new pages show up. I think I need to call out all weekend.

Good evening,

I am finding it so hard to make time for some MMC the last few days, and when there are nearly 1000 posts in a 3 day stretch getting caught up is really tough.

The taste test at Friendly's was very cool, we got to sample, judge, and give feedback on 15 new breakfast items they are wanting to rollout, only 4 will make the cut so we sat at tables and they came out with things like; Bananas Foster pancakes, red velvet waffles, Brioche French Toast, French toast with Nutella and bananas, eggs benedict, a fruit cup, a Breakfast Fribble (like a smoothie), Philly steak, egg and cheese on an everything bagel, a brand new fresh squeezed OJ, Bavarian cream stuffed pancakes, and a few more I cannot recall. some of the food was really good, (red velvet waffles, Philly bagel, Brioche french toast) Some was pretty bad, (Bavarian cream pancakes, Nutella French toast) but we used an Ipod to record our thoughts on appearance, taste, size, etc...It took 2 hours and we will now be doing this once or twice a year. We really had fun, they also asked us what else they should do to make it even better. Then as a gift for doing it we received $70 each. My wife and then went to the mall and had to check out Hallmark, I was playing with all the buttons on the ornaments, the only problem is they had the ornament display hidden in the back of the store because of people complaining about the Christmas stuff in the front of the store in July. We had a great night an topped it off by going out to On The Border for dinner at 9pm, that meal was great, I haven't had a good Mexican meal in a few years.

I am exhausted, back to work tomorrow, I am lucky I work in a cooler because this heat has been unbearable all week.
I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Good night everyone!!!
