Yes, Caninemom, be kind to yourself! I admit I am tough on myself too when I look in the mirror (I think most of us gals are) but then I say, "Okay, that's me, hold your head up high"! You are a beautiful person inside and out! =)

(((HUGS)))) to you CAH, thank you xo

It's hard to pronounce some of it and I don't think I really know what I even ate, I just scooped up stuff and it was just good!!! It has been my favorite restaurant for over 20 years before I became a vegetarian, then when I was vegetarian for 3 and half years, of course it was the best place to eat for me! I am no longer vegetarian but it is still my very favorite restaurant!!! I also have dairy and gluten allergies and all of their foods are marked so it is always safe for me to eat there! =)

By the way, this restaurant wins awards almost every year. The prices are fair as well under 10 bucks for lunch and a little over that for dinner. I am getting hungry!!!

Sounds like a wonderful place to eat !!! xo

Last time I had off a week I ended up not feeling well and not much got done.

I might work on some video editing as well to make that customized video for my mom and aunt set to music.

I hope you all have the Merriest Day ever!

Remember, Monday is a good day!!! Start to a beautiful week. Make it the best EVER!!! =)

Enjoy your week off !! xo

It's cheaper to run the dryer. Today I think is going to be a Christmas movie kind of day. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh yea, sounds like a great plan!!!!

LOL, I do the same with the laundry! We do not send all that warm air outside but vent it inside so that we get the heat and humidity in here. It is great, on laundry days we hardly turn up the furnace.
Speaking in the context of an engineer; The dryer useage sounds like a good idea if you have an electric dryer. Just capture the lint and there you go. However, there is one point to note for the novice, if anyone is thinking about doing this, and you have a gas fired dryer, then the dryer exhaust must be vented to the exterior of the home and away from an operatable window, due to carbon monoxide concerns per the International Mechanical and gas codes...It never hurts to check with the local code enforcement people just to make sure. A little friendly fyi....

The temperatures , Whoa.....now that's what you call cold. It sure sounds like snuggling weather to me! Body heat, there's nothing better (especially if it's someone elses) lol... and a nice fire, a cup of cocoa and a nice warm soft blanket wouldn't hurt either.....
