With this annual madness causing a dizzyingly wild posting rate, I'm overwhelmed and simply can't monitor all the messages.

Fortunately, I CAN monitor this:
Days to the Season: 115
Days to Christmas Day: 157
And I can also report that as of tomorrow, we will move to within 2 weeks of the 100-day Season Milestone.
Then, the first of our double-digits count.
(Now that's REALLY something to be hilariously hyper-happy over!)

Plenty of the heat and humidity to go around yesterday with a brief afternoon shower that did not moderate things.
Likely a continuation today.
We are at 74 degrees here to begin the day.

You have a Super Sunday, Friends.
Enjoy the remainder of your weekend and let the force of the Season be with you!

Feel free to add me if you want as well . Getting excited for the holidays to move it and come already! I have seen a few back to school commercials on tv so that's a good sign! I found the movie I have been looking for! Battle of the Bulbs. Its a halmark movie about two old friends that battle over who puts out a better Christmas display. BUT the only thing is its in the American Itunes store, not the Canadian. Guess I will have to find where in Canada I can get American Itunes cards. Anyone know? I also want to buy everything on QVC Christmas as well haha, I'm sure all of you would too. Well time to get going, going out for a bit. Have a Merry day!

Also got a little Christmas shopping done!




So good to see you!!!

I will try to look you up later on facebook. Gotta get ready for work!

I guess it is just not my year to watch it. My wife saw me watching it last night, you would've thought I was watching a naughty movie!!!
The heatwave has finally broken, the air conditioners are getting a well deserved day off. We have a few errands to run but nothing more than that.

Have fun watching QVC, or your Christmas movie of choice, I did see that Christmas Vacation and Christmas With The Kranks were both on earlier.


Have a great day!!!

Christmas Village
Christmas Village is coming back to LOVE Park! The Christmas Village team is looking for housing to accommodate our German team! Do you have a house which fits our needs or do you know a friend who knows somebody? If so, feel free to send us any relevant offers via a private message here on Facebook

Royal baby on the way! Good luck to Kate and William. Happy Monday everyone hoping for some cooler weather on the way this week. I'm back to work today after a week off. Spent all week painting A fence at home. For once I don't mind going back to work, grateful for the break from painting lol. Have a good one everybody.
