Grr, up at 5, so wash is on second load.

Some more shopping and bill paying today. Good thing mall is opening 2 hours earlier. And you can bet, I will be there close to opening. The largest mall will have crowds as the day goes on.

Yay! second to last Sunday until Christmas. Joy to all the homies.

And tea for me, coffee for little one. Yep, she wants to make that quick, early trip to the mall, so warnings have been made. The mom 🚕 has a schedule, and night owl little one has promised to be ready. I will be nice and provide the transportation for her today.

And a final Woot! The house will have the family back together on Thursday. 😊

    Good morning. It has been a busy couple of days. Got most of my shopping finished on Friday. Friday was mall, Target, Kohls, lunch, walmart, bank, helped a woman jump start her car, then went to the furniture store to pay off my dinning table and arrange delivery. We had about an hour to kill before I had to drop B off at the local mega church. Her school requires the students to earn a certain number of community service hours per semester. She is getting most of hers by volunteering to usher at the Christmas program at this church. After i dropped her off I went to Michaels, CVS, and put gas in the car

    Yesterday B had to be at the church at 9:30. They did 3 shows yesterday and she worked all 3 of them,. DH and I decided to stay for the 11:00 show. Last night was our Sunday School Christmas party. For the first time in several years I left with a good gift from the dirty Santa game. I got a bag of Lindor chocolates.

    Predicting snow on Monday. Weee. Lucky me.
    Yikes, I don't envy you. Thankfully no snow in the forecast for us.

    Crappy day today. The first actual rainy day of our trip. We leave today anyway, but not until after 4. Had thought about hitting a park for a couple hours but then woke up to this.
    Sorry you had bad weather on your last day. Hope you had a nice trip home.

    Yuck!!!! It's cold here it's about -5F here right now - and probably not warming up much in the next week or so. It is currently snowing...so it's just LOVELY :crazy2: Oh well...the heater is on under my desk and I have cozy blankets to cuddle under.
    Sorry to hear that, Try to stay warm.

    Ax throwing is very fun! We have done it...and it's a good activity for an evening out. You might be surprised at how fun it is!
    I bought him 2 hours worth of throwing. I probably won't be the one going with him. I figure he can either do 2 hours himself or invite a friend along.

    Charade and I having a very wet weekend.
    Yes, we did. Thankfully it cleared up here yesterday afternoon. We are supposed to have sun today and then back to rain tomorrow.

    I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year-it's fun with all the festivities but I get "people'd" out quick too, and then the stress of trying to accommodate everyone.
    I agree. this time of year is an introvert's nightmare.

    Watched latest Mandalorian-hubs turned to me and said "if they have those you are getting one aren't you" of the baby Yoda...yep! Will go right next to Hei-Hei.
    Dh and i are hooked on the Mandalorian. I was too tired to watch on Friday, so we still have one episode to catch up on, Baby Yoda is so adorable. I hope they give him a name soon.

    We are heading out to church soon and then have to drop B at the mega church for one last show today.

    Hope everyone is having a nice Sunday,

    Evening all......

    Finally made it home from hotel.

    Berries and Bubbles event was a huge success. There was an incredible turnout and we made a lot of money for a good cause. The function suite and food were amazing, glad we chose the place we did. It did indeed sparkle!

    We were staying over and we had full use of the hotel spa facilities all day today, so we of course took advantage and enjoyed a little pampering today. And a nice late lunch too......a light one as we enjoyed a buffet breakfast this morning. And we woke to snow this morning which we didn’t expect.......yes, it was cold.

    Now settling down to watch Matilda with a cup of ginger tea.

    Back to work for Kyle tomorrow......then we’ll head out and get some things we still need to pick up.

    Happy Sunday.......

    December 16th already!!! And Lynne`s daughter is home this week!!! Always good to have everyone home.


    Saw Monyk pop in...….:wave2: Yes, it`s hard to catch up at times when you miss posting for a bit......good to know everyone`s doing ok. Sounds like the kids are doing very well!!! Yes our trip was fabulous thanks.....I do hope you get some time at Universal next month too......:thumbsup2


    Waiting in this morning for a delivery......coming between 11 and 1. Then we`ll head out and get some shopping stuff we need and a few other things for next week.….stores are getting busier every day now, so it`ll be a quick visit to a few places.

    Glad to hear event went so well Saturday night, Schumi. And yep, always nice to stay over when a late night, and enjoying a drink or two.

    Ack, was up a bit earlier, as had to drop DH off, before my commute. So bright eyed and cold this Monday morning. Snow and sleet to arrive around 7am, with rain to follow in the afternoon. And, as the night falls, so does the temperature, so skating rink warnings if commute is after dark. Um, I will be staying in tonight. Yes ma’am.

    And ooh, the high temperature on Wednesday is predicted to be 32F. Sigh. Winter is surely coming.

    And weird, both little one and I shopping yesterday said, gee thought Christmas was already over. Yeah, there seems to be Christmas sales for months now.

    Hope the delivery comes earlier for ya, Schumi, so can be out and about sooner.

    Okay, tea for me. Good Morning ☀ (Well, no sun seen here. 😢)

    Quick good morning before heading out to work. It's going to be another gloomy day today, but we have fun plans later today for my birthday.

    Schumi - I'm waiting for a delivery to arrive too, but mine is a package coming from China. I didn't realize that when I ordered it.

    Lynne - I'm with you. Stay home in that weather. Sounds like a nice evening to watch a movie or read a book.

    Gotta run.

    Bacon I wish, Mac. No bacon to find around here.

    Decided tea not enough, so second cup of coffee. Black, as some know I usually do.

    Sigh, not even 9 yet. Long day.

    Heater on, so my office is just so toasty. Happy.


    And hey, Mac and Charade are here. Where's Dix?

    many threads I have opened yesterday and today I get the “ you have won” message

    I do hope this thread does not encounter that issue

    I can read the beginning of a thread and then blocked from it due to the scam message

    anyone else here having that issue?

    Good morning, homies!

    Here I am, @Lynne G! :wave2: Glad to hear the fam is together.

    Also, Charade,

    I haven't had that issue on this thread yet, @macraven, but when attempting to go onto the "picture a day" thread it keeps popping up almost immediately when I attempted to look at the photos / post my own. I'll keep trying though. It happens on and off the past week for other threads, but I can get into them after a refresh usually. However, for some reason that particular thread it's like, NOPE.

    Hope your package comes sooner rather than later, @schumigirl. That way you can get to shopping sooner.

    @Monykalyn If there is a Disney based documentary I have seen it. I believe the last episode they have listed for The Imagineering Experience is the last one which is kind of a bummer. I just finished it last night and they are caught up to now and at the end just kept talking about the future a lot, so to me, implies that might be it for now. However, probably not forever, as there will always be new things coming out in the future they can eventually talk about. As they don't want to give away too much to future projects, or anything.

    Fortunately ours was an electrical appliance that was in stock.....only ordered it yesterday........paid a little more for next day delivery, so didn’t mind waiting in for the 3 hour delivery option.

    (It’s a new wine chiller :lovestruc)

    And :bday::cake::flower3: Hope you’re doing something nice tonight......


    I though it was Monday bacon morning here...



    Homies, move south
    Predicted to be 65 here today and 63 tomorrow

    :bday: Charade
    We had bacon for lunch with brie and cranberry in a grilled sandwich.......I wondered if you’d smell it......lol.......

    4c (38F) here, but feels more like 32f apparently. It’s that cold damp feeling that gets in your bones. Back home and house is cosy......bet you don’t miss your old weather in any way!



    So, new wine chiller has been fitted and looks good! Just what we needed.....more chilled white wine.......lol.......guy who fitted it asked why we had two........told him why not......:rotfl: He had no answer!

    Didn‘t do as much shopping as we planned.....will do more tomorrow.

    Christmas movie tonight.........

    Never understood why someone asks, why? Because I can. Why not, indeed.

    Ooh bagels and cookies today. Large and small cookies. Hello large, chunky chocolate cookie with sea salt. So tasty with tea.

    Lunchtime walk time. See some snow falling. Bundled up.

    Hello All,

    Finally back from my hiatus. Took a week to recover from the cruise but finally starting to feel rested. We had a great vacation and enjoyed the time away with friends but I was happy to be home to see our son. We had beautiful weather and the brand new ship was spectacular. Ate and drank too much, saw some great shows, did some snorkeling in St. Thomas and Virgin Gorda, spent a lot of time on the pool deck and did a little gambling in the casino. We had a day to burn when we arrived back in Miami since our flight home wasn't until 10 p.m. so we rented a van and drove down to the Keys. We made it about an hour north of Key West before we turned around. It is so beautiful there. We will definitely consider vacationing there soon.

    We probably will not do a December cruise again since I was too exhausted to do anything remotely close to Christmas shopping after I got back so now I am down to the wire and have to get it all done this week. Did I mention I have hardly even started?

    Quiet day at work. May work on Christmas cards since I have not sent those out either :)

    Pork loin for dinner. I may just cut it into chops for a quick meal. Saw a good recipe for oven baked parmesan chops. Might give it a try.

    Happy Monday!!

    Which ship were you on Cam? Sounds like a great cruise, and yeah, plenty of time. 9 days. And for what it's worth, forgot my Christmas cards sending out too.

    We were on the Norweigan Encore. It was the second paid cruise out of it's home port, Miami. It was christened the end of November.

    Just ran to Walmart on my lunch break so I was able to pick up some stocking stuffers....that's a start.
