Good evening,

I need to get to bed, I am returning to work in the am. Then we have to sign our arms numb for the new car paperwork, then I should be able to pick it up on Tuesday. Bengals, arrrrggghhh!
I am having such a hard time finding multi-functioning (chaser) mini lights this year at a decent price, their price online is almost $25 for a set of 150!!! I will find them at a great deal soon.
I am a week behind on my Christmas decorating due to my back, I am so frustrated because I should have all my lights up inside the house, and I still haven't finished raking the leaves outside. I hope my back will hold up going back to work tomorrow or my 2013 decorating is in BIG trouble.

I have to go to sleep.

Good night, everyone!!!!

P.S.



MerryCarey,

I found a bunch of that Stash Holiday Chai Tea plus a half dozen other flavors. at Ocean State Job Lot down in my area, It was priced at $2.69 a box. So you may want to try your local OSJL for your tea.



Good night, all, again.

Celebrate all year long





Sing a Christmas song at least once a day





Play games with others





Laugh together





Pray for each other





Cry when your heart aches





Bake often and share the recipes and pictures





Watch Christmas movies, even in the summer





Take lots of pictures of your furbabies to share





It is ok to say Merry Christmas, happy holidays or Xmas





Say thank you often





Say hello to newcomers





Believe in Santa…and





Never, ever, loose the wonder of everything Christmas



Christmas is coming again, as it does faithfully every year.
It will come no matter what is going on in the world and in our lives.

We together have faced a year of great joys, welcoming new lives into the world and great sorrows in saying goodbye to friends, family members and beloved pets.
Praying, laughing and crying together as we shared those moments in our lives that we just knew others here would understand.

From daily conversations, to those special times of community chats, Christmas in July and greetings on the podcasts. With the ornament exchange and the mailing of Christmas cards, we bring Christmas into each others homes from around the world. Our very own Kringle radio keeps us dancing to Christmas tunes all year long. Of course we cannot forget the main event party of the year, “The Worlds Largest Christmas party”!!! The only one you can attend without the worry of what to wear.

So celebrate the birth of Jesus and the miracle of His coming. Get together with family and friends. Believe in Santa Claus and his magic. Give to those who are not as blessed as you are. Brighten those dark nights with bright lights and beautiful decorations.

Be excited, the Christmas season is about to begin!

You are so sweet, and thanks for wishing us the best for today! Your husband is fortunate to have a lady such as yourself!

Yesterday I was out, and I could tell by the weather winter is on it's way, and sure enough it snowed a bit last night for a couple of hours, nothing lasted, but it was sure great to see it!

While I was out running some errands, I dropped by for a visit to Michael's Arts and Crafts, and sure enough the store was filled to the hilt with decorations! And boy was it busy! I did purchase a couple of 'Sparkling Pine' candles, and some beautiful ribbon, and they have these 'Scentsicles' which I've never seen before, they are scented ornaments! I purchased the 'White Winter Fir' and boy oh boy do they smell just like a pine tree!
I'm going to suspend one from my mirror in my car, with the ribbon I bought, my new car will smell like a pine forest in winter......I'm luv'in it!


Then I wandered over to Walmart, and man that place was so busy....and of course people were buying decorations like crazy....Montrealers luv the holidays and decorate the city to the hilt!
I found for $5.00 'Home Alone 1' and I was so excited, I have 'Home Alone 2', now I have the complete set!
Then I also found 'A Christmas Carol' with George C. Scott for $5.00 bucks, man I was very happy, because Scott does a wonderful job in this version! Then I also purchased a string of mixed coloured lights, 50.
I shall start decorating little bit by little bit sometime next weekend, "if" I can wait that long!


Ok....that's it....that's my update on what I did Saturday, today just going to relax, and start planning my lists for making my yearly Panettones for the holidays!
I hope YOU ALL have a great weekend!
`Later.......!

Sounds like a lovely weekend! Those were some great bargains!!


Snowflake - Great pic, looks like you all are having a blast!

Holiday - I love your Afghan, you are so talented! The candle looks so Christmassy and vintage , I just love it!

“The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”


At the beginning of the year, I posted about all the fun things that would happen in this thread....little did I know the life changes that I would be starting a few weeks later…

On Jan. 30, I found out my world (my wife) was about to produce something that would become my world (my child). I wanted to tell my family so bad, but I had to wait….Wifey wanted me to do so. So I came here and told my “other family” in this post….

“Please, please, please...don't put this on my facebook page....because we are waiting to tell our family because of the difficulties we have experienced....

but....

I'm going to be a Dad…shhhhh….."

Shortly thereafter….the congratulations started coming in….but there was one….there was one that stands out now….

Oh Coach !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WONDERFUL !!!!!! XOXOXOO.

And as I reflect on that post over the past few months, I realized it (the post) was one of many….there were so many other instances of kindness….

The ornament came yesterday and it is SO WONDERFUL !!!
Hi Coach ! That is so sweet !!
You are such a kind man. Your wife is such a lucky lady as are all the students who have the pleasure to know you !!
Coach, I hope you are doing well.


There was more than that to me…but when you started looking, it was mind boggling how many more there was to others….

Nice to see you !!
you are too funny !!!! xo
You are SUCH a GENIUS with words !!! xo
Hope you get plenty of rest and stay nice and cozy !! xo
I hope you have a better night xo
Awwwww...what a precious angel xo


There is more….so much more….I could go on and on….because for CM3, kindness is who she was and it was what she brought to us….her gift to us.

See….in my world….I thought about the fun that would be had in the thread. But CM3….she didn’t bring fun to our world. To her, this was an opportunity to bring compassion.

I think about all the compassion she brought to the board, the compassion she had for her animals (and ours), and the compassion she had for us.

And as we head into the season…I want to return that compassion…

I wanted her voice to be heard…I wanted her to lead us into the season….so I found this quote from her…and I think I want it to help to do just that….

Merry Christmas! ((((((HUGS)))))))) xo

As we head into the season, let’s remember those of us who aren’t here….and how their experiences helped mold us into who we are….

As the days have turned to hours in our countdown, I pray that we all keep the spirit of compassion that CM3 brought to us…and I pray you have a Merry Christmas.

Good Morning, Day-Before-The-Day Friends!

Ah!
The Eve of the Eve.

As the count reveals:
Days to the Season: 2 (THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW!)
Days to Thanksgiving: 17 (Under 2 1/2 weeks left!)
Days to Christmas Day: 44 (Six weeks from the day after tomorrow!)


Two Special Posts remain:
Day 2 before the Season......(Today) = Ballcoach
Day 1 before the Season......(Tomorrow) = Xmas 365

(Can't wait!)


Warmer yesterday but it is not to last.
Quite cold temperature readings are just around the corner.
Today has started at 38 degrees for us here in the piedmont of NC.

Have a Marvelous Moday, Everyone!
And I hope Season Start week launches well for you today.

I wanted her voice to be heard…I wanted her to lead us into the season….so I found this quote from her…and I think I want it to help to do just that….

Merry Christmas! ((((((HUGS)))))))) xo

As we head into the season, let’s remember those of us who aren’t here….and how their experiences helped mold us into who we are….

As the days have turned to hours in our countdown, I pray that we all keep the spirit of compassion that CM3 brought to us…and I pray you have a Merry Christmas.
well done, thank you!
CM#'s spirit of compassion will live on here.
