I was exhausted by the end of the walk and it made me realize that I need to be in better shape. I'm going to join a gym tomorrow and start exercising. I really don't like to exercise so it should be interesting!
I had a few errands to run after the walk and lots of chores to do around the house. My dryer still isn't working so I decided to take some laundry to my parents house. I don't want to fall too behind on it. The dryer should be fixed by tomorrow. I made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and I'm finally able to relax. I'm going to try and read for a little while without falling asleep!

Congratulations on finishing the walk for a most worthy cause!

I was listening and he said this person was initiated into the Elks in 2003 and immediately was elected Leading Knight and served as Exalted Ruler in 2004. George and I were trying to think who that was. He leaned over and said that almost sounds like you, but not quite. Then the State President went on to say, “She served as Piggy Bank Chairman and then later as Publicity Chairman before becoming Piggy Bank Chairman again. She spearheaded a cookbook project to raise money for the Piggy Bank Project that netted over two thousand dollars to help kids with special needs. Her 22-year -old daughter Tiffany suffered a stroke as she was giving birth, and this Elk’s granddaughter was born with cerebral palsy. This Elk has carried on Elkdom, even in the face of her battle with cancer.” He said so many other nice things, but I was crying so much, that I don’t remember all the nice words. I was completely taken by surprise, and was called up to the stage to receive a special pin that is only given to 19 people in California and Hawaii. I also received a framed commendation. It was almost overwhelming! I am still speechless, believe it or not!!!
Oh my, Seawaters, this is amazing! Congratulations to you, my friend - a well-deserved honor! I am so very happy for you!!

My son is doing good and back to school, I am just glad it is all over and he is fine.

It's been a hectic couple of weeks . It was my 2nd son's birthday last Monday , I can't believe he is 2!! As Mr Festive was off last week we also managed to get some decorating done. We have repainted and put up new wallpaper. We did it at nights after the children went to bed. It was good to have the distraction and the new colours have really lifted our spirits. It was one of those moments when you step back, breathe in and go ''ahhhhhhh'' . Change can be good.

I have missed you all, I have been meaning to pop in quickly but the days and nights have been so full with different things.


Have a wonderful start to the week everyone!
Have I missed anything big??
Welcome back, Festive - we missed you! I'm so glad your son is better! Happy Birthday to your 2 year-old! I'm glad you were able to get your redecorating in and that it is cheering to you!

The house we are moving into is outside the City, on the countryside with view to the mountains, woods and fjord

We are so happy!
Congratulations on the new house, Solice!

While he was there, he bid on a silent auction for a very nice guitar and won! He got it for nearly $600 off retail! What a lucky find.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Congratulations to Jacob on his winning bid!

Good afternoon, MMC!

A very grey and blustery day out. I am in for the night - research on tap for the store will keep me busy.

Be MERRY!

I hope you enjoy the trip to Cades Cove. I'm glad the parks re-opened in time for you! Enjoy that stogie!
I certainly have no problem with hunting. We stayed out of the confrontation. Like you, I don't think I could pull the trigger on a helpless bear up in a tree. Not much sport in that. Of course it would be different if I needed the meat.
