Good news and bad news.

The bad: Still no sign of "A Christmas To Remember" or any empty space they could use.

The good: Macys and Sears were both in the process of putting out their Christmas stock and Belks' display is already fully up and opened!

If worse comes to worse, I can always launch the Blossoms tread with photos of one of those.
Glad to hear it, but still pulling for A Christmas To Remember to find a spot!!! I'm telling you Crown - kick someone out!!!

Still have plenty of apples left so I am thinking aboutmaking more apple butter and apple suace.

Its really chilly here today and my daughter has cheerleading practice outsode tonight so I am think by the time practice is done she will be hungry and cold. Perfect night for grill cheese and tomato soup for dinner.

Have a great day!
The apple butter (and applesauce) & especailly grilled cheese & tomato soup sounds delicious!!! ENJOY!!!

Thanks for the pics of pumpkins & holiday tissue boxes HMG!!! Great finds! Cute!!!

I got to go home the same day as the surgery.
Praying for a speedy recovery for you!!

Now that I have so much free time on my hands I will just have to spend it here

I am loving all of the fall candles and I cannot wait for the holidays, woo hoo!
Good to see you. Take care of yourself!!!

I watched the rest of the game last night and saw my Bengals pull out a tough win. I tried to come back here a few times during the game but couldn't get on, I was worried my IP address was blocked again but here I am. I dropped the boys off at school and then took a trip to KMart to look at their Halloween stuff, nothing too exciting this year, but their Harvest/Thanksgiving stuff was was very nice. I then went to check out Goodwill for their Christmas stuff, no good decorations, but I did get a Christmas DVD for $2, "Rick Steves European Christmas" I know you are a big fan of that CAH, so I got it partly because of your past reviews on it. (and the fact it was only $2)

I weighed myself this morning to see how I am doing with my "diet" after my cholesterol screening last week, and according to my scale I have lost 6lbs in a week. I was expecting 1-2 maybe 3lbs at most but 6?!!!! I must have been ingesting quite a bit of calories before I have gone to sensible portions, and I have cut out the candy for the most part, and the free donuts at work.

I have things to do around the house, I will be popping on throughout the day.
Have a great Tuesday!!
Wow! You caught my attention on that one! 2 bucks?! I had to search for it a few years before I found it because it was a PBS donation thing to even get it. I had it recorded on VHS but the tape was giving out. I finally found it online (there's plenty of them now) and it cost me more but worth every penny. Let me know what you think of it. It may or may not be your thing but I just LOVE it! I want to travel with that guy on all his Christmas adventures through Europe, especially Switzerland! That place is beautiful! I picture myself celebrating with everyone in that show. Thanks for thinking of me when you saw it!

Congratulations on your weight loss!
