********** MILESTONE DAY **********



Good Morning, Everyone!

First up. Many thanks to a special one of our own.
The one - the only - Brent.
For filling in so capably for yours truly.
It was a pleasure to sit back and read the count for a change, especially when it was presented so artistically!


Well, they are all open.
<< What is, Crown? >>
All of the Windows.
<< What?? >>

The 300-day Season and Christmas Day Windows -- check!
The 200-day Season and Christmas Day Windows -- check!
The 100-day Season and Christmas Day Windows -- check!
All open wide, with nothing but double digits visible ahead, followed no doubt all too soon by SINGLE digits!
<< Wow!! >>
Wow is the word.

Days to the Season: 58
Days to Christmas Day: 100

And be forwarned.
After our next Milestone (the 3/4 Christmas Day marker, just NINE days away!) the following one is the 90 percent home stretch Season Milestone!!


Cooler yesterday with low humidity.
Nice!
More of the same today, I hope.
We show 69 degrees here, currently, with a light rain falling.


Have a Marvelous Monday, Folks.
Keep your eye on the sparrow and your thoughts on the Season!

I hope you all are well. I send get well wishes and thoughts/prayers to everyone who needs them and I'm happy with everyone who as something to celebrate!

Most of last week the weather was very fall like. But late summer came back for a visit on Friday and Saturday. I spent a great time on saturday with one of my best friends. We aren't able to see each other very often. She is only 25 years old but has to take care of the house and her parents. Her mother has a chronical sickness and her father had a work accident two years ago and can't work anymore. She has very little time for herself and I try to help her whenever I can.

We went to the flea market and I found a necklace for my mother. Just like that I have my first christmas gift.

This week however fall is back in full force. It will be windy and rainy an cold all week. I like it that way and I am already thinking about christmas.

Maybe I'm able to visit the Nuremberg (not sure if this is written right) christchindlmarket. I wanted to got there a long time, but december is always soo full of appointments that I couldn't find time so far.
I love going to flea markets and yard sales. Every once in awhile I find something really grand that makes it all worth while.
Being a caregiver can be a stressful job. I am the main caregiver for my mom and my special needs son. Neither need a lot of care, mostly just someone to be there when needed.
I plan on going to the Christkindl market in Kitchener again this year.

Best thing to do in December is to make yourself an appointment and mark on the calendar. That way when someone asks you to do something else you can say, no I have an appointment that day!

Good night all.
I'm glad you had fun apple picking! I will be heading to the pumpkin patch this year too, even though my kids are older. I'll go by myself if I have to!
