    Good evening all!

    Today has been a great day. We got up early to go to breakfast at a wonderful local restaurant that has been in business, at the same location, since 1937! The food, as always was amazing!

    We then traveled to Menards to look for a new sink for our main bathroom that is being redone next weekend. While there of course we looked at some Christmas decor and other things.

    Next we headed out to do some Christmas shopping for family members. We went to a small mall and picked up a few things at a couple of stores. Then we had to have a snack at the frozen yogurt place in the mall.

    The next stop of the day was at an antique mall. It is one of our favorite places to go anyway. Plus, we had a $100 gift certificate from a contest my wife won from decorating our kitchen using items purchased there. So, we picked up a few more gifts and then a few things for us.

    Finally, we went to SmashBurger for an early dinner. That is certainly not the nicest of places to eat, but their burgers and fries are really tasty.

    Once home I added some lights to our Santa and Reindeer blow molds in the front yard. Basically, we put lights on the reins to help brighten the display a little. We still have to fix a couple of other reindeer (not associated with the blow molds) and get them out. Keep in mind that we decorated outside back in early November, but we just keep adding things as the season goes.

    So now we are back home and all taking care of things we need to do. But then around 8 or so we are going to make up a fire and watch A Christmas Story.

    I hope everyone is having a wonderful day as well!

    I am having a mug of hot chocolate (minus the marshmallows) instead of coffee this morning.

    Sounds pretty perfect except for the meal that wasn't up to your liking.

    Well, I lost my voice yesterday, didn't even know it was nearly gone until I spoke to the cashier at Winners and then again at my next four stops.

    Got all of the presents wrapped for the children; didn't get my cards finished.

    The cards should have been my priority, but O'Malley and I needed some of our space back so wrapping and organizing the dozen or so gifts was more important for my sanity.

    I was surprised to find that O'Malley hadn't disturbed a single gift during the night. They're lined up between the dining room table and back of the love seat with a few between the love seat and coffee table. I made sure that the handles on the gift bags were folded in so they didn't peak his interest too much.


    Rough sleep, the meds didn't help as well as the night before.

    I'm not going to stay at the baby shower today; just dropping off the gift in case it's not allergy related, I don't want to make people sick.

    Cards, laundry and dropping off a few gifts and relaxing.

    Turkey, potatoes and carrots for dinner tonight - I don't usually make stuffing just for myself.

    Stay jolly -lights-

    Happy 2nd Week of December MMC! We're going to my Uncle's today for a "Christmas Party" which we've had the last couple of years. It's just our monthly visit with a Secret Santa with a bunch of people and some good food. Should be fun. Have a great 2nd Week of December!

    Morning MMC! Looks like we have a snow free day to be followed by 2 days of rain. Seems like you cant win this time of year. Time to get that shopping done so you dont fall into the last minute club.

    Good Morning, Christmas Chasers!
    And we are gaining by the day on our quarry.

    Behold the latest count release:
    Days to Christmas Day: 17 (Now UNDER 2 1/2 weeks remain!)

    Chilly yesterday but clear and dry - a nice backdrop to our annual trip to Logan's Trading Post (photos to come in the Blossoms thread) where we had lunch at the Seaboard Cafe and got our Christmas poinsettia.
    Later, we picked up our Christmas tree at a lot run by the Optimists and by tomorrow, we will be fully decorated for another season!
    Today should be in the mid 50's, with mid '60's for tomorrow, then mid 70's by Tuesday, before cool weather again returns.
    This second day of our weekend has begun here at a cold but sunny 31 degrees.

    Have a Super Sunday, Everyone!
    And I hope you have a great remainder of your weekend.

    Good morning all! Work day here today, so not much on the agenda. Anxiously awaiting the bowl picks for college football. The have predicted that Penn State will be going to the Rose Bowl, which is very exciting. We shall see! Hope you all have a blessed Sunday!

    Good morning everyone! Still down and out with this bronchitis, which I fear is turning into something worse. I wasn't able to see my regular Dr. on Wednesday when I went and I don't think what the Dr. I saw gave me was strong enough, so I will be calling in the morning. I've been trying to rest since Wednesday, which is stressful because I keep thinking of all the things I want to get done! Today will be resting in bed finishing my Christmas cards and watching football. Speaking of football, my Buckeyes gave me quite a scare last night (I probably lost what little voice I had left screaming through the first half) but thank goodness they rallied and won the game! Go Bucks!! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Sunday and week ahead!

    Good Sunday midday! I am currently on break at work and after yesterday’s busy work day and the fun-filled work Christmas party that followed, I am very tired, to say the least. I am counting down the hours till I can rest at home and watch something Christmassy tonight. Enjoy your day everyone!

    I'm still pretending what I have is allergy related. I thought the initial trigger was from the diffuser I bought followed by cleaning O'Malley cats litter box. Finally did a hot bowl steam to drain my sinuses two days in a row.

    I haven't been able to keep my fluid intake up during the night so I'm guessing the dry throat and cough will sound like bronchitis to others.

    I hope the bark is worse than the bite for both of us.

    Tomorrow I have to go to the Food Bank for a few hours to help them out with some co-workers. They may send me back to work, but I will endeavour to honour my commitment by showing up.

    Hope you feel better soon and it doesn't turn into pneumonia.
