I just had a surprise visit from my uncle, whom I haven't seen in years. He is the last remaining family I have from my mother's side living around here. He is doing well, I am just in shock, because we spoke to him before Christmas last year and invited him to Christmas Eve. He said he would be coming but he never showed up, and we called him after that and never heard from him until today.

It is strange how things like that happen.

At the moment it is very quiet at the office. Maybe it will be like this all day.

I got some news I want to share with you! My parents bought a flat! The construction company will start building it in January 2014 and we will be able to move in around June / July 2015. The flat is bigger than the one we live in now. So far we had only live in small old buildings, so the new flat will have a lot of things that are "luxury" to us. It has a very big balcony (almost 40 m2) which is accessible through all bedrooms, a big living and dining room and two bathrooms with a shower and a bathtube and a open kitchen. The whole flat will be 120 m2.

The best thing is, that our bank is offering us a very good mortgage loan. My parents were wondering if they will be able to get a mortagage loan they could afford, but this one is amazing.
Congratulations. Exciting!!!

Thankfully I am off from work today. I had way too much on my plate yesterday. It was just one of those days when I couldn't catch a break and was being pulled in all directions. I was completely frazzled by the end of the day. I'm feeling better this morning. So far I have started tonight's dinner, beef stew in my crock pot. I already ran a few errands and started some laundry. I'm having a quick cup of coffee and then I have a few more chores to do. I also want to finish up the girls Christmas lists and maybe start some online shopping for them.
I hope everyone has a great day!
Today sounds like a better day for you!!! YAY! It was 42 for my morning walk today. Beef stew sounds tasty! Have a good day!

Too cute!!!!

Ok, I knew I'd have to turn it back in, but I was hoping they had forgotten about it...LOL. I tried to justify to our general manager purchasing one for me, since it was so handy. I don't think he bought my presentation, though. Haha!

We finally got some rain last night. It was getting pretty dry & dusty around here. Also, it's good for the deer food we planted last weekend!

I hope y'all have a great day!
What a tease! I agree - better ask Santa!

I hope it was a good visit! Did he say if he will come to Christmas this year?

Good morning (OOPS, afternoon) MMC! I lost my interenet connection for a bit, but thankfully it's back up now. WEW!

As I said earlier, it was 42 this morning & when my hubby got out of bed, he flipped the little button to turn the furnace on! Love that smell the 1st time it's turned on for the season! Feels so warm & cozy!!! We went straight from AC to heat! And we'll be back to AC by probably tomorrow. Ha ha!!

Hope you are all having a GREAT day! Lunch time here!!!
