Good Morning, Last-Full-Week-In-September Friends.

Yes, it's hard to believe we are so far along in the rolling year.

Soon it will be October and time for Halloween.
Then November, with Thanksgiving and, of course, THE START OF THE SEASON.
Then December with the greatest day of the year.
Then January First, to round out Christmas Season 2013.

Wow!
So much just ahead.

Makes me even more eager to check the daily stats:
Days to the Season: 51
Days to Christmas Day: 93
Day after tomorrow, Guys.
The THREE-QUARTER mark to Christmas Day.
And then.........
Well, by now you must know!

Cool and almost Fall-like yesterday, which was appropriate since it was in fact the first day of Fall!
Rained a bit in the morning but the remainder of the day was clear, albeit rather damp.
Should be dry today, where we have started off at 57 degrees.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Everybody.
I hope your final full September week is a great one!

I love these warm fall days and walking through the leaves. Glad you had a great weekend.
Happy Birthday to your dad.
The shock of what happened will be with you all for a long time, I hope you discover the answers to your whys.

Have a great week!

a chilly good morning to you all!
Nothing on agenda for today except more sitting around.
My son set up the computer next to the recliner for me so everything is with in easy reach.
So now I have to order everyone here to start cleaning this place up! Amazing what you notice form a chair when you sit in one spot long enough.

Good morning all my Christmas friends!

Just sitting here listening to the latest podcast and drinking a coffee. Chilly morning out today too! The tree across the street is starting to change color! William painted a pumpkin on the weekend because he cant wait for halloween. I watched Christmas Vacation last night because I cant wait for Christmas haha. He is getting just as bad as I. We made a countdown to Halloween calender. Soon I will be making him a countdown to Christmas calendar. My Wife went to costco with her Mom yesterday. I said for her to pick me up a few Christmas trees. She said jokingly, "Why don't we just get a few more for the house?". Then I said "YES! You are getting it now!" as I laughed. Wish she had the same Christmas spirit! Oh well. Getting closer to my Christmas movie marathon. Id invite everyone of you if you lived close! We would have a Pre Christmas bash! Well time to get going, tonight I'm buying a plastic light up santa to put on my porch after work! Ill take pictures to show you all when I get it

That will happen the first time you hold her, too. There will be times you get overwhelmed, but nothing will ever be better, then the gift of a child, from God. Nothing.
