    Happy Anniversary to you and your wife!
    Keeping fingers crossed and sending well wishes for your mother in law
    Happy Birthday to your Step Grandmother. 99 is amazing!

    Well my husband now has a week off. His birthday is Friday so he is having some much needed time off.
    The pupster Angus went and had his second jabs this morning so he is now free to roam the world safely :) and we have made a fuss of the other two.
    Then me and Owen (aka the husband) went to the dentist this afternoon and both have to go back in 3 months so that all sorted now. I have some super fluoride toothpaste to use now which should be fun.
    Left over sausage casserole for tea tonight for me and the minx, think Owen and our son Ben are having bacon sandwiches so that is a nice easy meal tonight.

    I have finally.....FINALLY replaced the living room lightbulb after procrastinating for the last few days so I can now stitch until a little later and am making progress with the tablecloth.
    Also just discovered through my ancestry DNA a 3rd cousin 1x removed who lives in Massachusetts so will be writing to her later. Id highly recommend the ancestry DNA kits - Im finding out some fascinating stuff!

    Plan for the rest of the day is making lists ready for husband and sons camping trip and then letter writing to penpals later. :)

    Have a good day Christmas folk! :ornarment

    I spent Father's Day doing laundry and organizing the Mystery Room(some recycling involved there from old, decrepit cardboard boxes).

    In the course of running the weekly errands, Saturday, traffic slowed to a crawl in a place that is normally free flowing. Everyone was checking out a swan momma and her fuzzy gray babies heading from a bridge down to a grassy hill. I have never seen one out and about before. She was bigger than our wild turkeys.:)

    Hope everyone is doing well! I am laying here listening to yet ANOTHER thunderstorm. Ohio has had so much rain this summer! I am also behind in my Christmas journal, so I have been working on that. I have been re-watching Christmas eve videos we took from the last few years to help me remember things to write about and document. Boy seeing those videos with all of the trees lit, stacks of presents waiting to be opened, a fire in the fireplace, and my favorite Christmas music playing has really got me in the holiday spirit. As I have stated in the past, I am NOT a fan of summer at all, but I vowed that this year I was going to try and enjoy it instead of wishing it away. Watching those Christmas videos tonight is making that task difficult! Hope everyone is having a great night!

    Happy Inching Towards Summer MMC! Only a few days left till it officially kicks in. Had a busy Monday at work like usual. Warm and humid this morning with showers moving through shortly. But the weekend? Another beautiful weekend is predicted. We've had the best weather on Saturdays for like 5 or 6 weeks. I hope that keeps going. Have a great day everyone!

    Good Morning, Hilariously Happy Half-Way Heros.

    And our journey to this point has indeed been heroic, as we close in on a truly major Milestone Marker!

    Today's data release:
    Days to the Season: 148
    Days to Christmas Day: 190

    The HALF WAY point to Christmas Day 2019. We are eight days away from it.
    (Wowzerinos, Guys!)

    The heat and humidity returned yesterday and will be with us for the remainder of the week, with the predicted highs each day ranging from 86 to 92.
    We show a pretty good chance of rain tomorrow as well.
    Presently, we stand at 76 degrees here in the capital county.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday, Folks!

    Hello All
    Well today has been a relatively quiet day for me so far.
    Ive been out and brought a new bulb for one of my scale babies along with some bugs for their dinner.
    Visited the mother in law and finally made some progress with Paypal who have now escalated my case which is nice so I am hoping it will be resolved soon.
    Husband is currently at his mums working on a bike in the garage so I have peace and quiet to do some christmas planning type bits before I go off on child collecting duties :)

    Weather today is a bit overcast and I believe it has just started raining. Temperature is sitting at a tropical 15 C or 59 F with lots more rain predicted.

    Also put a few more christmas movies to tape on Movies 24 :)

    Hope your all having a good day!

    Showers and storms today with a high of 72 degrees. Hopefully we’ll get a break at some point so I could take a walk with Rocky. I’m heading out soon to do some food shopping. Back home afterward to work on my daily chores. Dinner will be tacos. I guess that’s about it. I hope everyone is well and has a nice day!

    Good, uh, Tuesday morning, Christmas friends!

    We had a whirlwind trip to NYC and back over the last few days. The Phantom of the Opera was AWESOME, and many of the other things I saw were, too. The food was outstanding! Of course, I saw some things that I don't ordinarily see in south Georgia, but that's part of the experience, eh? The ocean of people in Times Square on Saturday night was unfathomable (see what I did there?;)) LOL.

    Anyway, I'm glad to be Bellville AND here with you all!

    I have a lot of catching up to do. I hope I haven't missed anything too important. Did I mention that I'm glad to be back?

    I hope y'all have a great day! :D

    Good Tuesday morning! It was my first day back at work yesterday and it was a bit insane in the morning, as I forgot my password to log in to one of the programs we use and they downloaded a new program for emails and I didn't have a user id or password to log in and I had to deal with the aftermath of a power outage that occurred right at closing time on Sunday. Once the dust settled back down, I was able to catch up on everything that happened last week while I was away and get to work.

    It is an absolutely gorgeous Summer-like morning here and already warming up significantly. I'm working the afternoon/evening shift so I'm taking care of a few things around the apartment this morning and just enjoying a slight breeze going through the place. Have a wonderful day everyone!
