Good Morning, 'Pines Bound People.

And as Brent pointed out, this is the final open house Wednesday at the Shisperinig Pines before the Season begins on Nov 13, which also just happens to fall on a Wednesday this year.
(You can just imagine what it will be like at the 'Pine then!)

For now, Carl will roll out a "Pre-Season 'Pines Party" this evening.
Lots of fine entertainment, of course, but against the back-drop of getting ready for a week from today.
(I can almost feel the anticipation!)

The count:
Days to the Season: 7 (ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!!)
Days to Thanksgiving: 22 (Three weeks from tomorrow!)
Days to Christmas Day: 49 (Seven weeks from today!)

And the THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW -- the commencement of five straight days of our "Special Post Series".
{{ Golly Gee, Guys! }}


Cool weather continued yesterday but nothing a light to medium weight jacket couldn't handle. Dry and calm, too.
Could hit close to 70 today before chillier weather returns for tomorrow.
Right now, we reside at 48 degrees here.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday and a Perfect Pines Day, Friends!


The Special Post schedule:
Day 5 before the Season......(Nov. 08) = Made
Day 4 before the Season......(Nov. 09) = Binger
Day 3 before the Season......(Nov. 10) = Christmasstar
Day 2 before the Season......(Nov. 11) = Ballcoach
Day 1 before the Season......(Nov. 12) = Xmas 365
THE SEASON BEGINS (Nov. 13)

Unfortunately I doubt life will calm down any until right before christmas. So I'll drop in if I have time. Just to share some of the happy things that happened the last two or three weeks:

My work team and I celebrated the birth of a healthy little daughter to one of my co-workers. Her name is Aylin (which is the turkish version of Eileen, but they pronounce it like Eileen), she was born on October 28th.

My sunday school team meeting went very well. We have the childrens christmas church service well covered.

I was babysitting two very energized two boys (age 8 and 12) last thurstday. Who made the couple hours I watched them, very entertaining. I just love those two!

I hope you are all well and happy.

See you later!
Nice to see you, Cetacea!! Glad all is going well!!
Congrats to your co-worker on the birth of her daughter, what a pretty name Aylin is =]

Take care!!

xx

Anyway, Maggie is still coughing. The poor thing. I am supposed to call the doctor back when she finishes her medicine. She has three more doses left. She's taking it every other day so I will be calling soon. It looks like she may be going back for another xray of the lungs. I will keep you posted, xo.
The same thing happened to me w/ Tapatalk.

Poor Maggie, I am sorry to hear that. I will say some extra prayers for her. Sending hugs to you both.
