I swear monkeys build this place. Still going to get a deck and that will be sometime this month. I can't wait to sit outside on the cool fall days. Speaking of that, next month, September 22nd is the first day of fall! Coming fast, but not fast enough for my liking. At least the weather has taken a turn. Its in the low 60-70s all this week. Some rain but hey, Ill take it. Better then hot weather. Still keeping my peepers out for holiday stuff too. Well better get going. Have a Merry day today everyone!
Enjoy your day off! Happy Anniversary!!! It has felt like fall for the last week. Starts warming up a little tomorrow though!

She averaged about 2638(!) posts a month. Multiply the months since she left us, to make heaven a merrier place, & you will have your answer.

I'll check in periodically whilst swinging in a hammock next to a rushing stream and sipping on a cup of coffee...in the mountains!

Have a great week, everybody!
Have a WONDERUL vacation! Sounds heavenly!

He's had enough for today and is cleaning up now. He'll do some more tomorrow after work. He smashed his finger earlier, its so swollen. The poor thing.
Not too much else going on here. My oldest is staying in tonight, she worked a 10 hour shift and is tired. She is watching a movie with her boyfriend right now. They were apart all of last year because he went away to a college in Florida. But he is back home to stay, he is going to transfer to a school here on the island. We like him a lot, I'm happy for them. My other two are out and about. Hopefully it won't be too late of a night.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday and are having a good night!
Ouch! I hope his finger is better today!

Days to Christmas Day: 142

My goodness. Double-digits to the Season tomorrow.
And just about time for things to start moving into high gear. We'll be in the thick of things before you know it!

A light rain yesterday but all in all, another real nice day for early August.
We are looking for a dry one today.
Currently, we record 67 degrees here to start the new week.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Friends.
And keep that Christmas faith!
Yahhhhh! Happy 100 Days to the season, of everyone! 🎅🎄🎁
