I haven't been sleeping much lately, so here's what I do late at night on the computer....lol~
Great list, thanks!

TGIF!

Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

We had lots more pictures on the StealthCam yesterday. There was even a raccoon that climbed up and down the deer stand ladder...LOL.

The kids get out of school early today (I don't know why), so we're having lunch with mom, then she's going to the mountains with her brother and his wife. Lucky her!

I've been so busy this week, I haven't had a chance to work on the Camaro at all. I bet Jim's ready to give up on me. I hope I can get some time tomorrow to do some work on it.

Y'all have a great day!

Things have been so hectic around here. I have given notice to Yankee Candle that I will be leaving them. It isn't working out for me for a couple of reasons. I'm sad to leave because I love the store but I will be stepping right in to another job. At a Hallmark store!!! This will be a much better fit for me. It is less than 5 minutes from my home and they are willing to accommodate my availability. And Hallmark carries Yankee Candles, so that's a plus! I start October 31st.
Typical day for me, errands and chores. I want to go to the butcher today but first I need to write a menu plan and grocery list for next week. I'll do the rest of my food shopping tomorrow.
I am also starting a diet today. I got on the scale this morning and I really want to lose at least 10 pounds. Well maybe a little more but I will start with a 10 pound goal. I swapped my coffee and creamer for green tea and I had oatmeal instead of the usual bagel and cream cheese. I'm really going to try and be good. It's not easy!!!
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!
Good luck at Hallmark! That sounds like a great job too! And good luck on your diet! I am there with you - I think I am never not on a diet! Lol!

Crown, thank heaven for your Countdown. I had somehow convinced myself that Halloween is next Thursday instead of the week after, and I was feeling time rush by way too fast, but this morning's Countdown set me straight!
Sounds beautiful to me!!! I'm glad Crown set you straight!

Tomorrow I am taking my son and his friend on a ghost hunt and we will be visiting some spooky looking (yet safe) places around town. My son said, "we don't believe in ghosts really but it sure is fun to pretend!" I couldn't agree more! He uses that imagination and comes up with some stories to tell and I love hearing them!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
Have a great time! How fun!!

I have a wedding tomorrow, my nephew is getting married. Baking cupcakes this morning, hoping to have them iced before I go to work. Then the cake to finish that goes with them, it is baked already, just need to decorate it.
Your cheeseburger cake looked awesome! Good luck with the cupcakes! Keep us posted about snowflakes!!! : -)

Too funny re: the racoon! They are funny creatures to watch! Have a great lunch. I'm envious of your mama going to the mountains!!! Hope she/they have a great trip!

Oh - I talked to my Mom last night. She said Dad got a brace for his back. She said it will take some getting use too, but hopefully it will help. He also got some pain pills. If the brace doesn't do the trick, there is a procedure they can do (and I can't remember the name of it, but I've heard of it before) where they put something like cement between the disks. So I'll keep hoping & praying the brace helps & he can avoid having any kind of procedure. It's generally a quick, easy procedure, but nothing is easy for Dad being on coumadin, etc! And being 85 years old doesn't help speed healing either! The best news is he can still mow lawn in the brace! THANK YOU LORD!
