Good morning MMC! Happy Monday! Happy Columbus Day! Happy Thanksgiving in Canada!


It's a typical Monday morning here. Tired! I was ready for bed by 8:30 last night - I had to fight to stay awake until 10:00! It just gets dark too early now! HA! So I shouldn't be tired today, but I feel like I could use a nap! (won't happen...)

Our meal at the lake Friday night turned out really well. Saturday afternoon we went on a bike ride with friends. Saturday night we watched Mama Mia on the big screen. Yesterday we rode bike at the lake in the morning, then rode bike with my family in the afternoon along the Miami Erie canal to a 40 acre pond. It was a beautiful (though bumpy) ride! Last night we went to my sisters - my BIL made a bunch of chicken halves on his cooker - we had all placed an order for how many we wanted to take home to freeze for a quick easy meal! They were delish! They look dark in the picture, but they really weren't!



Poof - there went the weekend! Not much going on this week that I know of! Dad has a doc appt with a back surgeon Thursday. Makes me kind of nervous. He has a flattened vertebrae in his lower back - they say it's not an operable type thing, but they want an opinion from a surgeon! I hope there is something they can do for him - for the pain! And I sure hope they don't tell him that his days of mowing lawn (riding mower) are over! He could mow 365 days a year & he would be a happy man! So a little prayer for my papa would be appreciated!

Have a great Monday!

I tried to post again, and it didn't go through because apparently I am not Platinum. We'll see if this post gets through! I will try to check in from time to time today.

Enjoy the movies & take care of that foot!!!

I am trying again to post. Prayers for your dad are on the way, Holiday. He sounds so sweet! Your weekend sounds wonderful! I am so glad to be retired and not have to worry about Mondays rolling around and having to go to work! Those chickens look great. What a neat barbeque-er your BIL is!!

those chicken look good! We often do that, with everyone working now it is easier to have those really to eat meals available.
Pray all goes well with your dad.

Star and Made, I have been thinking about you both. Prayers are being said that you heal quickly. But as you both have indicated, you definitely have to rest it and "put it up"!!! Take care!
