thanks for explaining this. I had no idea it would continue. I will be praying for you sweety!

Good Morning, Perpetually Perfect and Patient 'Pines Piners.

Well, wait no longer.
Mid week is here and with it, the final Shispering Pines open house of February.

Can we really have advanced this far already?
Take a look at today's figures and you tell me:
Days to the Season: 259
Days to Christmas Day: 301
And there you have it.
Tomorrow.
The 300-day mark to Christmas.
Be here.

Rain just about all day yesterday.
Chilly, too.
Should be better today with highs in the 60's and dry skies!
We stand at 44 degrees here, currently.

OK!
In honor of the 300-day window arriving tomorrow, Carl has a secret theme planned for the 'Pines tonight.
Definitely something to do with the number 300.
Could it involve the door prize?
The first 300 fired twinkies free?
How about the first 300 iced teas?
A scavenger hunt to find 300 hidden camel ornaments?
Hmmmm...... I wonder.
Come this evening to see. Regardless, you won't be disappointed.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everyone!
Keep that Christmas song on your lips and may the spirit of the Season always reside in your heart.

Happy 'Pines Day everyone!

It's another double celebration week. 'Pines followed by a milestone tomorrow. And, of course, the calendar flips once again on Friday as we enter March. Does that make it a triple celebration week? Three days and three special occurrences. Hooray!

The forecast calls for heavy snow to hit Ottawa today. We are in for about close to 20 cms of the white stuff. 8 inches. It could be worse! The good news is that our daily highs for the long range forecast are hovering right around the freezing mark. Indeed, March is nearly here.

There is not much new today. I hope everyone is enjoying their final days of February. Time to celebrate at the 'Pines!

Hey everyone! I haven't been on that much but I am still dealing with a cold. It's not real bad but I just feel really drained. I will be okay! Just eating well, drinking plenty of fluids and taking vitamins. I will "kick" this cold soon and try to be on here more.

Have a great day everyone!

I just read from some of you about people getting upset about Christmas things being out so early. Same with Easter, it was out in January. Oh my! I am so mad! Ha ha!

I was reading on Hobby Lobby's facebook page last summer when they were already putting Christmas items out in late June, probably only 1 or 2 aisles then. There were so many people ranting over it and telling Hobby Lobby they will never shop in their store again. Umm... You don't HAVE to walk down those aisles!!! Hobby Lobby is a HUGE store and it's real easy to ignore the Christmas aisles if they bother you and just keep moving. Why on earth would you stop shopping at a store just because of Christmas items. You would think they were stocking the shelves with highly offensive stuff. I never realized Santa, snowmen and reindeer were so offensive!

Happy Pines' Day all!!

I am beginning to think they should install a revolving door at the place I work. They just can't seem to keep anybody anymore. They keep hiring people then within a few months they quit. Some of these people are the ones that's supposed to make it possible for me to move to first shift. That's right, I am still waiting, and my patience is wearing thin to the point that I am starting to think about looking for another job. I really don't want to do that, having to start all over at another job, especially at my age.
