Still too warm!!!

We are under a frost advisory tonight, low 30's expected.

Too bad you weren't able to ease yourself back in, I hope it gets better.

Off to read the rest of the boards...I've got a lot to catch up on from the past two days...

Xmas...congrats on the win last night.
Awesome news! Praying for you all!

Sounds like a hectic day, hope you have a relaxing night!

Thank you, everyone, for the prayers/well wishes - the garden survived!
The tops of a few of the leaves on the mint, basil and tomatoes got a little dark, but the plants are fine. Looks like there could be at least 2 more weeks for the garden to grow and the vegetables to ripen - so happy!

Canned tomatoes and then made a pot of chipotle tomato sauce I am going to freeze later. Smells spicy! Guess I was on my feet too long - knee is sore now. Haven't taken anything for it yet, so I will shortly before I go to bed - should help me sleep, too! Yay!

The mosquito abatement truck just sprayed by the house - the mosquitoes are still out so I am glad they went by today.

There are still a few things I need to do before I can relax, so I am going to call it a night.

MERRY dreams!!!
Great news about the garden and continued prayers for your knee to feel better!

You sound like my mom after she went back to work from vacation. She's a registered nurse and her job always stresses her out.

Edit: I forgot you guys asked me what classes I'm taking. I have law of mass media (hardest class), global news media, reporting and information gathering and principles of public relations.

Good evening,


My Tuesday is coming to an end, my eyelids feel very heavy.

My usual night shift tomorrow, so I will get MMC time in the AM.

I hope you all had a great day.

Good night all, may you have Christmassy dreams!!!
