I'm glad this is not our Pines the festival refers to, or it may not be a family event! Based upon the name, however, I'm guessing Carl will at least have a booth set up.

Oh man! I hope it stays cool for you! Then you can get a better deal on AC this fall!

This morning, coming down the stairs I could actually hear my knees make a creaking click clacking sound but that was overtaken by the sight of my living room room which I am sure has become a habitat for wild animals..........

This cracked me up this morning!!! When do your kids go back to school?

Kids will be here shortly so I better get busy and get some things done around here.

I hope you all have a Merry Day!!!
Try to stay cool! Enjoy your day w/ the kiddo's!

Most weekends we make the 3 hour drive down to check on my ailing parents. Neither one is doing well. Mom is still determined to go to Myrtle Beach on Labor Day weekend to see the ocean one more time. Hope we can make it happen.

An article in our local newspaper stated that the mountains of western North Carolina were second to Hilo, Hawaii in rainfall for the year in the US. We have already far exceeded our normal rainfall amount for the entire year. I certainly like the cooler temps but the rain has gotten old. Just 5 years ago, our well went dry during a drought. Now we have more rain than we can handle causing several land slides. It is suppose to be a nice weekend with only a slight chance of rain and highs in upper 70s and lows in mid 50s. We hope to be able to stay home and enjoy it.

Have a blessed day.
Keeping you & your parents in my prayers! I sure hope she can make it to Myrtle! We had nice rain early in the summer, but it has left us!! I can understand too much of a good thing is too much!

So, what do y'all think about Ramen Noodle Burgers? Looks pretty good to me! Surely there's no cholesterol in that thing!




Here's the story.

Not yet, but I may break down and get the Percy Faith CD set that came out last year. I have so much already!

It's a personal project. Mr. and I put together a DVD of Christmas-themed movie and TV clips each year. This year will be the fifth one. Before that, we compiled CDs of funny or unusual or rare Christmas audio for ten years. It's something for more-than-a-card-but-less-than-a-gift friends, or a little something extra to tuck in with a gift.

Thanks for the compliment on the afghan! Try crochet sometime. It really isn't very hard, and there are tons of instructional videos on YouTube that make it very easy to learn.

I am having some problems with that, and I am getting frustrated. And to top it off we are still having internet problems, we keep losing the connection. It also affects my phone. I could be in the middle of a conversation and then I lose the call. I have another technician coming to the house today to see if he could figure it out.
Other than that we are well. I am just completely sleep deprived and exhausted. I am looking forward to the start of the school year. I am looking forward to the girls being in early on school nights and me being able to get some sleep!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
When does school start? I'm sure you have said, but I can't keep it all straight. LOL! Enjoy your day!
