I was hoping for a really good nights sleep but my ear started bugging me last night and kept me up most of the night. Waaaaa!

I spent most of the day in bed yesterday feeling sick. I am hoping to be up and around today but not sure how I am going to hold up not getting any sleep!

We will see what happens!

Have a great day everyone!

I hope Snowflake is feeling better today, too!

Funny you mention Barista Prima Coffeehouse Italian Roast! We have a Keurig Coffee Machine and have been trying many varieties of coffee. I finally decided that brand and flavor is my absolute favorite out of everything I have tried! There are probably hundred of flavors out there on their site and I think I have only tried 25 of them. Yes, Barista Prima Italian is my favorite one so far! We have the Platinum Plus Keurig Machine (5 settings) and I make that one on the 3rd setting, Wayne makes his on the 4th setting. I guess I like my coffee strong but I usually only drink one cup per day.
I like that one, too, but I've recently started buying Emeril's Big Easy Bold. Pretty good!

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

The sun is finally shining here in south Georgia...yippee! It's a good thing, too. I have a busy few days ahead, setting up my rental signs for the annual Rattlesnake Roundup here in Claxton. Of course, now it's called the Rattlesnake and Wildlife Festival. It's still a big festival, but they no longer have snake-capture competitions. Local folks would go out and catch rattlesnakes and enter them in the roundup. There were prizes for the most snakes caught, the largest snake, etc. Then they would have venon-milking demonstrations. After that, the snakes would be sold to different buyers. After years of screaming about it, PETA finally won out. Now the state Wildlife Dept. brings a few animals to display. Everything else is just vendors selling leather belts, jewelry and fried Snickers. I guess they won't have fired Twinkies anymore, though!

My family is going on a mission trip with the church this weekend, and leaving me all alone! I hate being home alone. It's too quiet. I'll have all the TVs on while playing guitar with the Ipod player...LOL!

I hope y'all have a great day!

I have tried Emerils, it was just okay to me but my dad really likes it! We bought my parents a Keurig Platinum Plus for Christmas. Now my dad has a new hobby, shopping for coffee!!! He will browse Keurigs website all the time searching for different varieties. At the rate he is going he will probably try every variety they make within months. The cool part about that is he brings Wayne and I K-Cups to try out! I had told Wayne when we purchased the Keurig for my parents that my dad would be addicted to shopping for K-Cups. I knew my mom wouldn't mess with it and leave it up to him. I was right! =)

Prima Barista House Blend is good too!

Thanks for thinking of me, xmastidings!!
And thanks for the advice, I think I'll do that

You are in my thoughts, as well!!

Hope the rain goes away & you get some good snow.

Take good care, friend.
