Good morning!!! I can't hardly stand to watch all this 9/11 coverage - it is just too sad!!! But that is what is on at work. It almost seems disrespectful to turn it off, but ugh...ugh...ugh! Seems like it was just yesterday.
Not much going on at work again today! I guess that means more time for playing on the forums, right? Hee hee! Last night I canned 6 1/2 quarts of tomato juice. The tomatoes are starting to slow down just a little! (That's ok...I can handle 6 1/2 qt in 1 night!) I had just a little bit left that wouldn't fit in the jar, so I put it in the fridge & drank it this morning. It was possibly the best ever! (that I have made) I put just a little seasoning salt, garlic salt & celery salt in it. Mmmm!
Hope you are all having a great morning!!! It's going to be another warm one here!!

The orchard down the street has their Apple Cider sign out & right now they have Macintosh apples! I might have to go get me some of both!!

Oh cool! I agree - post pics! I will be over the day after your ham is delivered for a meal!!!

Up until now I have not even seen any fall/Halloween commercials.
I haven't seen any TV commercials, but on Boston.com there are banner ads for the Boston Pops holiday concert season, the Boston Ballet's production of The Nutcracker, and Christmas Story (The Musical). Sure signs that the season is approaching!

I hope those stones find a speedy exit soon. Is having them broken up with ultrasound an option? A friend of ours had to go that route.

I was thinking about that this morning. It's a day I won't ever forget. The office I was working in then didn't close, so I was trying to get news throughout the day via the Internet, and the news sites were clogged. Early on, there was the fright of not knowing when and where the next blow would fall. No, it doesn't seem like 12 years ago.

Well come visit me this weekend!!! It's not supposed to get out of the 60's here!!!! I might have to break out the jeans.

The temps are finally dropping, around 94 degrees for the high today and I am actually a little happier about that. It will be right at 90 for the high this weekend. Maybe this is a sign that our triple digits are finally coming to an end!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi! Have a Merry Day!
Good morning, CAH!! Yay for the cool down!!

I made the thread of Fall & Halloween decorations, by the way =]

Maybe in an hour or so I will feel better.
Going to be supper hot again today and humid again. It is already 22c (71f) feeling like 31c (87f) and the sun is not even up yet.
I hope you feel better

I remember the fear of not knowing what was going on. I was the opening manager at autozone that morning and we were busy. So I was hearing some reports over the radio while trying to wait on customers but it was hard to keep up. Then when it finally started to die down after the first hour or so, I remember going outside and watching the planes come in. We had 45 planes land at the airport here. Memphis was the only other place that got as many. It really wasn't until I went home on my lunch hour though and turned on the news, that I really got a sense of what had happened.

Hope you all have a great night and please go easy on poor Made.

I have been trying to sit outside every night this week after it cools off a little just b/c I don't know how much longer I will be able to do that - in shorts & a t-shirt!! Have to enjoy it while I can!!!!! Last night it was 10:30 until I was able to sit out on our patio, but I loved all the sounds - locusts, etc were making a lot of music!!

I know how you bakers are - our friend makes pies - well when my aunt/uncle were home from NC she made us an apple pie! It was so yummy looking & tasted even better! She didn't want us to pay for it b/c she wasn't happy with how it turned out! HA! WHATEVER! It was great. And I am sure yours is too!!! But sorry you aren't happy with it!
