It will keep you guessing till the end, such an entertaining read. I hope you get the chance to read Before I Go To Sleep by S.J Watson , I literally could not put this book down and read it within two days.

It has been a long day!! Thinking of you all and sending lots of love your way!!

I need to crash early, I have our weekly meeting in the morning.

Have a great night!

Eeeek it must have been a difficult drive with all the fog. Hope you got a good nights sleep and all rested for your meeting. Have a good day today!

LOL my son is the same ! Did you see any shooting stars. We had a very clear night here but didn't really see much of anything. I think we had to wait till much later plus I don't think my location was one of the best to see anything.

Good morning everyone

How was your evening?

Like I said, I watched a couple NCIS LA episodes and then went to reading. Big mistake!!! Went to bed too late and therefore I'm very tired right now.

Guess I have to make it a rule, to not read in the evening. Oh well, won't work anyway.

Three of my ordered cooking books arrived yesterday. My mum already found a recipe, which she wants to try out.

I have the theory that the more one has to take shots the less he/she minds them. Don't know if this makes sense. English is not my native language and often I do not know how to write/say something.

I keep you in my prayers. May god guide your decision and give you wisdom.

Morning! We had a good evening thanks. I was exhausted by the end of the day. I watched a little TV. Then we went out into the back garden to watch for any shooting starts from the meteor shower. After that I stayed up reading.

Have a good day!

Good Morning, Pre-Milestone Friends!

Ah!
'Tis indeed the last day before.
<< Before what, Crown? >>
Why, before our next Milestone.
The Milestone that will bring us to the end of the third quarter.
<< Nice! >>
You bet, little voice.

Days to the Season: 92
Days to Christmas Day: 134

And with tomorrow's Milestone, we will enter the final fourth of our long journey back to our special Season.
(Don't think the fact it falls on Hump Day has escaped Carl's notice, either!)

Still uncomfortably warm and humid here.
But the weather folks predict relief for next week.
(It will be welcome, I'll tell you!)
We are at 73 degrees here, currently.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, Everyone!
(Cant't wait for 'Pines Day tomorrow!)
