Good morning, MMC!

I have been up for hours already today. My fault as I took some allergy tabs last night and was out by 9 pm. Going to be a busy day again - love that!

Be MERRY!

Good Morning, All.

What a fine October day as we near the close of this month and the start of the next one
which will, at long last, bring us to our long awaited and coveted Christmas Season destination.

The data:
Days to Halloween: 1 (Hey! That's TOMORROW, isn't it!!)
Days to the Season: 14 (Down to 2 weeks!)
Days to Christmas Day: 56 (Only 8 weeks away!)
Great balls 'o fire, time's a wastin'!


Well, say Hey!
It's 'Pines Day!

And what a 'Pines Day!
Carl has gone all out with his "Halloween Eve Spooktacular" theme.
Lots of black and orange crepe paper.
Carved pumpkins.
Orange and black frosted fired twinkies.
"Free glasses of blood" (which I think -- and HOPE! -- is actually Kool-Aid).
Carl wearing a mask (he won't say what it depicts - you'll have to come to see).
Apple bobbing.
Black cats.
Hay rides.
Horror movie screenings in the theater.
Wow! Sounds like you don't want to miss this one!


Our high was 73 degrees yesterday with plenty of sun and no rain.
Nice!
Should be similar today, where we have started at 55 degrees.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everybody.
See you at the 'Pines for what sounds like a shockingly good time!

We just returned from Chico. The brakes on the Honda had to be fixed, and we decided to have dinner at a restaurant we like. I have begun a new book on my Nook that really started out with a bang! Talk about attention-getting!!! It's called Scare Me by Richard Palmer. I bought several other books at Barnes and Noble and Costco: three cookbooks (plus my new Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays that arrived in the mail), Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh (based on the anecdotes from her blog, HyperboleandaHalf.blogspot.com), Born to Run by Christopher McDougall, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. Born to Run is about the Tarahumara Indians who have "honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury." The Devil in the White City is based on the "true story of two men--the brilliant architect behind the legendary 1893 (Chicago) World's Fair...and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death." In The Night Circus, "the circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Reves, and it is only open at night." (It sort of reminds me of Something Wicked This Way Comes.) I can hardly wait to finish one so I can read another! I'll keep you updated as I read. TTYT
Sounds like some good reads!! Enjoy them!! 📕

Goodnight and sweet dreams!
I have actually only gone car shopping once with my then husband. All the other vehicles I have owned have been gifts from the Lord, Given to me without ever having to look.
I sure hope you find something soon you both love. What color do you want, because really , that is what is truly important !

I'd rather get it checked and see if I need to do anything about it or if all is good. After this appointment, all I have to worry about is getting my stitches out.

I may pop in tomorrow morning before my appointment. If not, talk to you all after! Have a wonderful Wednesday and drive safe to work!
Good luck at your appointment, Jennifer!! 💜

It is quite funny, it will be the song of the day tomorrow for the members that don't visit this thread.

I am going to try to go to work in the morning, I just hope my back will hold up.


Good night, everyone.
Praying for you, friend.

Enjoy your Christmas tunes!! 🎄
