Morning! Happy Pines Day! I opened the curtains this morning to thick fog and mist but far from cold though!

First day back at school for us today. J was brilliant going in thank goodness.

Now that school has started , I really feel like a new chapter to the year has begun. Even Mr. Festive has started mentioning christmas now. The shops will start with Halloween and Christmas any day now I imagine. I can't wait!

Have a great day everyone and see you all at the pines tonight for some september celebrating!

Oh and GOODLUCK today RYAN !

I have a neat story to share with you guys!
On Sunday, while I was visiting my family in La Crosse, my sister took me out to lunch. We went to the Hungry Peddler, a favorite restaurant for both of us. When we pulled into the parking lot, an advertisement on a car caught my eye. It looked like a Christmas wall hanging that I put up each season. I had to investigate =]
So we walked over to it, and sure enough, it was!! On each of the front doors, there was detailing that read "Believe in the magic of Christmas"! The license plate read Santa C! A Santa hat is centered on the dashboard =}
There were bumper stickers too, that read "My other car is a sleigh" & NP (North Pole). There was also an e-mail address, so I just e-mailed Santa for more information-I'll let you know his response!

When we went inside, I took a picture of the digital Christmas countdown that is hanging near the bar and kitchen area. I always smile when I see it!! The owner, Kevin, is a friend from high school's father. They are also big Christmas lovers! He saw me taking a picture of the countdown, and he asked if I realized that Santa was actually dining in the next room. He pointed him out to me, not that I would have missed him, he had his white long beard and was dressed in all red!! 🎅 It was awesome!!

I was hoping to catch him before he left, unfortunately that didn't happen. But it was pretty cool to see the big guy so early in the season!!

Here are a few pictures of his vehicle!!

I like that; just be yourself. My son used to watch goosebumps all the time, which got me started watching and liking it as well...

Good Morning and Happy Pines Day!

I FINALLY finished my video project for church. It's a video to celebrate Grandparents Day. Wayne and I spent the last 2 Sundays interviewing children about their grandparents then I put that together with a brief history of that day. I ran into so many issues with my video maker. I spent my entire Friday working on it and never got it working. My son was helping me with it as well. On Saturday after a few hours we got it working. Took me most of the day yesterday to edit, tweak the audio on it, and add music. Phew! All that work and it's a 5 minute video! I know those who are familiar with video making know the time it takes to even make a video that short.

I don't have time to hang around but wanted to stop by and say hi and hope you all have a Merry Day!

Someone please send some cool air this way! All week will be 99-100 degrees. Christmasstar, I know it's your birthday but do you mind getting your big fan out and send that cool air this way? Have a Happy Birthday!
