Good Morning All- Happy Friday Eve!

I was at Rite Aide last night and I saw a whole display of Christmas cards, lights and a few decorations! Def made my night!

I am just working today and I think I am going to put on some Christmas music to make my day a bit brighter!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Halloween at my house is not done until the Christmas décor comes out!!!:


ETA: I just wanted to add that to me Halloween is more of a celebration of Autumn the opening of the Holiday season!! I never was allowed to celebrate it as a kid we never got to do the trick of treating thing so I think I am making up for it as an adult and I am making sure my kids celebrate it and go trick or treating!!
Sounds like an awesome tradition...but I wouldn't sleep for 3 months if I watched all them horror movies!

I stopped by Kirklands last night, and I walked in the store just a little after 8pm and they were just breaking out the boxes and stocking the shelves with Christmas items while another store employee was putting up several Christmas trees~

That was a nice surprise to walk into! Sort of picked up my spirits just a bit!

I am at work looking at my Yankee Candle thanksgiving 2013 catalog and they have a lot of scratch and sniff candles. Some are good and some I am not a fan of. The pumpkin buttercream is kind of too sweet smelling for my taste but the Cozy sweater smells awesome and they even have a candle cover that looks like a sweater!! The Turkey and stuffing I have smelt time and time again but all I am getting is a whiff of pepper so I am not a fan but I admit I was not open minded at all about it. You pretty much know ahead of time what you think would smell good or not. I don't care for sweet smelling candles unless they are floral. I do like the regular spiced pumpkin candle but that is about the only one I like for anywhere in the house other than the kitchen. Now that I am done with smelling candles at work, mmmh what to do... what to do***shuffle papers, shuffle papers look busy!! I know I will look at webcams leaves turning! Really the beginning of the month is kind of not a busy time here I swear if I would have got(en) more than 3 hours sleep I would be functioning better! I hope everyone is having a good Thursday morning!

I hope things work out well for you, including no headaches! If you get a headache today, don't count yourself out of the job yet---it could be nerves. Give yourself a few days to settle in. Be sure to let us know how it goes! A lot of the candle fans here would like to be in your shoes!

Cetacea, I think Made wrote up a tutorial, but I don't have a link or know where it's located ... Made? Or you could send him a PM and ask him for the link.

Good morning MMC! I hope everyone's day is off to a good start!

Since I am off work tomorrow, today is my Friday. YAY! Looking fwd to going out to the lake a night earlier than normal! Our lake season is winding down - need to enjoy every minute!!

Last night I made Meceka's Chipotle tomato sauce recipe! Looking fwd to trying it in different recipes!!! Mmmmm!!



I also picked more tomatoes from the garden last night, but there weren't enough to do much with. This might be my last big batch of canning for the year. That's bittersweet!!!

Not much else going on around here. It's an overcast Ohio day! I'm off to read the posts from last night!

Wishing you all a great Friday Eve!!!!
