Good Morning, my Wonderful Weary Wandering Weekend Wassail Wanters.

Well!
Enough with the contrived alliterative beginings.

On to something much more straightforward:
Days to the Season: 291
Days to Christmas Day: 333
It is now under 2 1/2 weeks to our next Milestone, the 1/4 Season mark, second milepost on our journey to Christmas Season 2013.
(They say half the fun is getting there. Really applies here, doesn't it?)

ICE!!
Oh yes, there's ice.
Lots of sleet (with some snow) fell yesterday afternoon/evening and our temps remained well below freezing all day.
(I saw it coming and got all my outside activities done in the morning!)
Today, we are starting at 29 degrees, with the promise of sun and mid-40's for highs.
Hopefully the slick conditions will be gone by noon.

OK.
You have a Sensational Slip and Slide Saturday, Friends.
<< More alliteration, Crown? >>
(Just couldn't resist.)

Have a Wonderous Weekend!

You are so clear in your writing. Be proud!!!


Thank you. I am proud to have had the wonderful parents I had and also proud to have had my siblings of which my sister is the last one left. My brothers were great guys and always protective of their "baby" sister. Christmas was different in those days when I was a child and my memories were formed by my family......I feel it is up to me to keep their memory alive....xo

Good Saturday morning, my Christmas friends!

I've been cooking away here at Bernie's store this morning, and breakfast is on the table. Y'all come on!

The wedding was very nice last night. I hope to get a picture I can post later.

I'll be here till 5pm, then I have a dinner for my former boss who was promoted up and out of our office.

I hope y'all have a great day!

He starts a new place Monday, and has already said he is not going, this is going to be very tough. Almost everyone went to Chuck E. Cheese for a graduation party, it was a lot better there, we all had fun unwinding there. Back to work in the morning, why is it that I never want to go?

I hope you all have a great night, talk to you tomorrow.

I was like that at the hospital when I worked there....I did NOT want to go....Used to have crying fits when it was time to get ready.....I hope a really great job will still come along for you....xo

This weekend, going to do some running around, but it should be fun. Tomorrow, I'm going with my BIL to Little Rock for a quick trip. Wife is feeling under the weather, so she is going to stay home and relax. That will be my plan for Sunday.

As for tonight, I'm about to head to bed and watch tv. Hope everyone had a great day!

Hope your wife feels better, Coach, and that your weekend is great !
