Good Afternoon ladies! I am here, just worked last night and today. I took advantage of the fact that I am closing today. DH and I slept in…Both have had headaches today, but mine is sinus related. With the cooler weather, I finally turned the air off and opened the windows but it does a doosey on my allergies. Nothing else new is going on, working tomorrow and Monday, then Tuesday is super busy. I have a playdate for DD3, a cross country meet, then curriculum night for DD1. Not sure what I will be doing for dinner, something fast and easy….maybe breakfast for dinner.
Michelle, Annie, Laura~hope you all are having a blast! Wish I could have joined you, but with closing tonight and opening tomorrow a drive up to MP is a little too far!

Michelle~many hugs to you! I am so sorry about everything you are going thru, but I agree with the others and sometimes you need to go with your gut.

Shad~I don’t know how you are doing all your projects. I keep thinking about everything I need to get done and the pain I get in my back…Whew, but then I also have a 3 yo that makes all my projects twice as long because she “helps”

Melody~Glad you and Shad have “put the world to rights” A good friend on the other end of the line can change your entire outlook.

Happy~ don’t work too hard! Prayers for your Mom and her treatment.

Cee jay~be safe on your trip! And good for you for standing up for yourself!!

Ok, guess I should get back to work. Luv and Hugs ladies!!

Good Evening Everyone.

What a beautiful day in Chicago. I must tell you, those of you that could not be with Chelle, Laura and I, you missed a lovely day getting to know each other in person. We have some very awesome worldlie sisters, girls. Laura thank you for being such a great hostess. I loved the pizza. Curtis will have to try it tomorrow. He was in bed by the time I got home. Sassy missed me as I did her, she was such the lover puppy when I got home. Coal is so very handsome. He is lucky to have you and DH for parents. Chelle, Jane was very good company also.

Hello to all the chicklets...I am going to kick back with Miss Sass now.

Loves and Hugs.

Okay, here goes with the finished project.

It used to look like like the back half of this photo



Then I dug it out and the pile of gravel arrived



So I put it in along with some pavers



And now it looks like this

I had such a great time with Laura and Annie! Thank you, Laura, for being such a great hostess! Your home is almost as beautiful as you are! Annie, it means so very much to me that you were willing to drive so far just to help me celebrate my birthday. I love you both!

Shad - A big well done to you on completing such a great project! It looks fabulous!

Now that I am officially a year older, I'd better go get some rest.


Much love and many hugs to all,

A very happy birthday to you Michelle. I second that comment that you have lots of leftover goodness in you today from yesterday's Worldlie Powwow. What a great picture of the 3 of you. Wish I could have been there. Now that you've hit your fabulous decade (and it will be fabulous) I hope that the rest of the year will be full of good things for you. It is a weekend isn't it? So make some fun for yourself today.

Mel - was most surprised to see that there were not one but 2 tornadoes up your way Did you do the duck and cover???? Loved the penguin birthday pic.

Shad - VERY nice job on the new bin storage facility. I think the stones look so much nicer than grass or just pavers. I think you and DH would make fast work of clearing out the back lot here - bring gloves and work clothes when you come Isn't it funny how there is always more stones / dirt / sand than you thought you needed, even after careful measurement. I am fascinated by the orchid baskets hanging from your tree. I'm used to seeing bird feeders instead. Are you taking a rest today after your hard work?

No rest for Ellen. Good heavens woman, you sure are one busy lady and I suppose as the kids grow, you have even more directions to head off in. Thank you for your prayers.

Annie - thanks for posting the picture. Was great to see all of you. I just bet you had the most wonderful time. Too bad you had such a long drive, otherwise you could have spend all day and evening I'm sure. Had I still been living down the road from Laura, we could have turned it into a pajama party

Ceejay - you know, I do sort of miss those thunderstorms down south. I always said that it sure does know how to rain good down there - never seen it rain so hard in my life as it does in Memphis. Are you still getting the heat?

Laura - when I saw your picture I was thinking you bear a striking resemblance to the girl who was John Travolta's dance partner in Saturday Night Fever (which I just watched again a few weeks ago). Glad you had a good time together, it's nice to put faces to everyone. I think up to this point I've only seen your hair

Worked from 9:30 to 6 yesterday. The owner didn't think we'd be that busy but she was wrong. We were just about as busy as the first day I started, the day before Labor Day when everyone was crusing town. I sat down for 10 minute while I sat in my car and scarfed down a couple of bites of lunch. Came home completely wiped out. Told them that's why I only want to work 3 days a week. It's just so physically tiring that you don't get anything else done. I am working 5 days this coming week also but after that it should ease up a bit. We are doing way better in sales this year than last year at this time. I said that's because word got out about the fabulously entertaining new sales clerk who is chatting up the customers Actually I love talking with the people. Most of the folks are very very nice and it's good to get some socializing going on.

I am off today and I have to go out and see how my garden is doing. Probably time to shut it down. We hit temps in the mid 30's the last few nights. Decided not to tarp the plants because as DH says, no one else is tarping them and it means going out every night and covering them and then opening them up each morning because it gets pretty hot in there once the sun hits it. Also there's alot of dew overnight so it's pretty wet and messy. I will see how things are going and we might take out some plants. The grape tomatoes are doing fine, if I have enough ripening tomatoes I might make another batch of sauce to freeze. I think the cucumbers are about done for the season but the bell peppers seem to favor the cooler weather. The trees are starting to turn yellow, we should be getting some color in the next week or two as the local towns schedule their fall festivals. The good thing about working all these hours is I have a big paycheck to spend But the crown that broke on my tooth last fall (which I haven't done anything with ) appears to be crumbling now so I'd better check out the insurance and a dentist.

Hope you all have a nice Sunday.

TOLD ME TO REST AND HOW GOOD IT IS TO SEE ME LOOKING SO WELL. SAID "THAT'S THE WAY IT SHOULD BE"....? IS HE HAPPY TO SEE ME WELL? OR GLAD I CAN STILL ANSWER THE ALARMS?!?!
