Well guys, I'll catch you all later!

I didn't really catch up today's posts...I've been reading posts from yesterday, but will try to read some more tomorrow. I am off to take a little nap for work tonight.

I hope you all had a great day and you enjoy the rest of your evening. Make tomorrow an even better day! God Bless and keep smiling!

I got a bushel of Chesapeake Bay crabs from my boss today. He said he had two and a half bushels left over from a party and he gave me one....

Nice; I mean, that prob. cost him at least 150.00 just for the one bushel. That was my dinner tonight, and I cleaned the rest and I will boil them off to make stock for crab soup later this week and put some additional stock in the freezer to make soup in the middle of the winter! That was pretty nice of him to do that!

I hope everyone has a good night tonight, me I'm going to chill out for awhile, watch Love it or List it and then go to bed.....

Praying for your mom, Christmasstar!

Drove down to visit my parents over the weekend. It is tough to see them go downhill.

We continue to have hot/humid weather with highs in low 80s with lows in low 60s. Sightly better weather may be coming though. The extended forecast shows highs in upper 70s with lows in upper 50s. Hope the humidity goes away too. Rainfall is 15 inches above normal for the year.

Have a blessed evening.
Seeing your parents go downhill is one of the hardest things in the world - my prayers are with all of you, mgramsey!
