I SHOULD be getting ready to go volunteer at Jude's school but I'm wondering if I will actually go today.. up lots of the night with a coughing little guy, coupled with these chilly temps and wind makes me want to just snuggle up at home for the AM.... hmmm..

Hope Noel feels better soon and I don't blame you for wearing the winter coat!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's a chilly morning here but we are headed to a high in the lower 50's. Then tonight we are going to drop into the upper 20's. Brrr!!! Another day of just sitting around doing some work on the computer for me. I also need to work on my grocery list. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

I got up this morning and was chilllllly, however we didn't have any frost on the ground, but I had some on the windshield (for the very first time this fall). So, I guess it's just a matter of time now, where I won't be able to get any more fresh tomatoes from out of the garden.... Well, at least there's one positive thing to look at receiving from the frost, no more lawn cutting.......

So, here I am at work, immigration officials swarming all over the place trying to apprehend a groom whose visa is decidedly suspect!! Trying to eat my birthday cake at the same time but leaving little chocolate crumbs all over my desk - very professional!!!

The city has started putting up its Christmas decorations. I've taken a picture but instead of it saying "Merry Christmas from Dundee City" it looks all pixillated and warped. You may still get it anyway and you can decide!!

I'd planned on treating myself to a pumpkin spice latte but as my feet haven't crossed the threshold since I got in the morning, that will have to wait till another time!

Not planning on anything special tonight but I think we're going out for dinner at the weekend (any excuse, eh?!) Bruce made my birthday cake - he's on vacation here for a week before going back to his Grade 2/3 class next week. Came home last night and he presented me with a devil's food cake!!!! He and Betty Crocker did well!!!!!!!!!!!! So, breakfast was chocolate cake as I didn't want to start it until today!!!

Is it just me or is it every way you turn at the moment, Christmas is creeping ever closer??!!! About time too!!!!

Hey all!!

Can you believe only 2 months until Christmas Eve... I have my 7 y/o home with me today...she woke up with a slight fever and a bit of a cold so she is actually watching a Barbie Christmas right now.. I do have my Christmas music going while I am working.

Had to turn my heat on this morning only 62 this morning in the house. Here in CT it is only 43 degrees and we supposed to get a frost tonight.

Hope everyone has a great day!!

Happy Birthday! Enjoy that cake and let the crumbs continue to fall where they may! Many happy returns of the day!

And yes, Christmas is creeping ever closer---I think it's about to give up the stealthy approach and leap into action.
