Good afternoon everyone!

It's a sunny and windy afternoon in the Sault. Temperatures are in the lower 20s/lower 70s. Nearly perfect for the beginning of September. Kim and I had a nice little adventurous hike through Hiawatha Park in the northern most part of the Sault. She's not very good with wilderness, so I enjoyed it much more than she did. I had also planned it to be a nice run, but she insisted it become a hike. Oh well. Still, it was great to re-visit some trails that I haven't run in about a decade. At least Kim enjoyed the waterfalls.

For the rest of the day, I believe that we're heading to my dad's house for dinner. It should be a good time. My brother and his wife live upstairs, so it's nice to at least have everyone in one house.

I should probably get going. We're suppose to be there before 4 and I still have to shower and shave. Oops! Have a great Tuesday, everyone! First 'Pines Day of September is tomorrow! I am sure that Carl will have a great theme to ring in the 'ber months!

Just in time for September, this week's weather forecast is for highs in upper 70's and lows in upper 50's. After storms early this morning, we should be dry the rest of the week. Not perfect weather but getting closer.

Have a blessed day all.
I am so glad all of you had a very nice holiday, mgramsey!

Maybe it's trivial, but it's frustrating ... you don't want much, just to get the item you paid for, instead of something else you don't want! I'm keeping my fingers crossed with you.

Good afternoon, everyone! How are you? I am doing well. What are you all up to? Nothing is really going on here. Kids are just getting home for the day, as well as DH.

EA's first official day of Pre-K was today. She said she met some new friends, plus some of her friends from her pre-school class were there as well. It sounds like she has a great day, which I was so glad to hear.

What are everyone's plans for this evening? I have to work 10p to 6:30a tonight, so I will have to lay down earlier tonight, so we won't do much of anything tonight. I'm not sure if DH and the kids will do anything or not.

Well, I am off to try to read the Countdown from today, I don't want to keep getting too behind. I will talk to you guys later. Hope you are all enjoying your day. God Bless and keep smiling!
