That's exciting Toni! She'll probably be wearing flip flops while here. Amazing how that storm line worked isn't it. Hear of folks getting so little and go 25 minutes away and they are slammed to the rooftops. I do not miss it one bit!

Supposed to get really wet today, long as the temp holds guess I don't care.

Enjoy your Sunday!

LOL Kelly!

Gwenn - Hope your Aunt continues to improve.

My daughter Vanessa, grandson Jackson and BF Billy are coming for Thanksgiving! I am beyond excited. They live in Jamestown, well south of Buffalo, and only got 6 inches but it has been bitter cold. They are looking forward to 40 degrees even! emoticon

Gwenn, hope your Aunt is comfortable today and all went well yesterday.

Sorry too, to hear about your Cousin Gloria, extra prayers out to her and the family.

Wow, it is 38 right now - 34 in Gallatin! Luvin' it! Hunker down Buffalo, the stampede will continue. Enough already. The Saratoga area got hit seems every Thanksgiving back from 69 - 71. I want to say it was Christmas 70, GE actually closed down in Schenectady. First time ever. Actually we were "stuck" at the in-laws for a few days because of it. Oh heck, I can remember going up to Laramie, Wyoming July mid 70's and being grounded in Denver because of snow. I heard even Hawaii had freezing temps this week. Can you imagine, spending that much $$$ and freezin' your tucus off.

Okay, everyone, let's find something fun to do outside and Move It!

You stopped by Gwenn, thank you for the update on your Aunt. Modern technology to be able to see her at its best. That is ridiculous, sending her home one day post op! Enjoy the visit with your folks. They picked a good to travel.

I'm sorry to hear about your cousin, Gloria. I wish nothing but peace and love for her.

My aunt made it through surgery last night and we got a pic this morning of her in her room last night. Not sure when they will discharge her, but they originally told her she would only be there for one night.

Today is my Friday and then I'm off the following week. I can't tell you how much I need to be away from here! My parents will be in town late Sat night through Tues morning, then they head to GA to visit with my brother and his family for the rest of the week.

Have a good one!

Gwenn - sending light and love to your dear aunt!

Gloria - sad news about your cousin. I hope she's not suffering. Sending light and love her way...

Kelly - my nephew lives in Depew just outside of Buffalo and they got hit hard. There is still a ban on traffic in most of the city and the burbs. They are warm, dry, and fed. I was there for the last big one in '75 or '76. The farm was a mile from Lake Erie up on a ridge - we were slammed - 10 foot snow drifts. That's why we came here - no lake effect snow!

Looks like today will be a pretty one! Everyone get out there today and enjoy! Rain may come with the warmer temps...

Wishing for a fast and easy recovery for your Aunt, Gwenn.

Feels a tiny bit warmer out there today. I worked late last night and will most likely work late tonight too so I might take a bit of a break later this afternoon and get out for a short walk so that I can enjoy some sunshine. I think we have a couple more days of cold and then might enjoy some warmer temps.

My cousin in Michigan is very ill, they thought she wouldn't make it through the night but she did. I am not sure if that is good or not, it is a pretty sad situation.

Not sure what is up with my tummy today, yikes! Maybe I should go for a walk sooner, it might help settle get the digestion working faster!

Stay warm girls!

Love your hair, Gloria! And I also love Culver's. I always get a chocolate sundae with oreos. Delish. Their hamburgers are also quite tasty. But oh so bad for you.

If Zumba doesn't warm you up, nothing will! Wasn't it great out yesterday afternoon though? I had to be outdoors going from one building to another and found myself taking the jacket off, double layers underneath.

Camille is having another art show Saturday at that Mansion in Hendersonville, rats forget the details. (not going) I'm surprised she didn't at least drop by and let us know about it. I'm on their list otherwise I wouldn't know about it either. Guess we can create all kinds of mischief, clearly the cats are way away. I've given up trying to get a response from them.

Well, nothing exciting going on in these here parts, hope the sun shines brightly all weekend!
Brrrrr....

Have fun at Zumba Toni, the thing that I don't like about exercising when it is cold is when you come out of the class it is FREEZING! Bundle up!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Yoo hoo Y'all!!!

Brrrrrrrr! I am glad I brought all my warm clothes from Alaska! Looks like I will be using them for the near future...:)

WTG working out Gwenn! When in doubt, mix it up! That's what a trainer once told me. Sage advice!

Gloria - GREAT HAIRCUT! Woohoo! It will be so easy in the morning!

Kelly - I can guarantee I won't be doing any outdoor extra work for at least a week! the Delta lounge really is very comfortable...:)

Later...

Gwenn, good job on the working out, and like Kelly said, slow and steady is what keeps it off! Keep up the good work.

Kelly, there is a Culver's in Murfreesboro, one in Cool Springs and now one in Hendersonville. They are based out of Wisconsin and we would stop there every time we went north because they have them in Indiana and Michigan. The ones in Franklin and Murfreesboro have been there at least a couple of years, the one in H'ville just opened Monday. They are fast (FAT) food, their burgers are tiny (like Steak & Shake) but are called BUTTER burgers, what does that tell you! They have really good fried cheese curds - this place is NOT healthy! The frozen concrete mixers are frozen custard mixed with any variety of stuff, they have tons of flavors and stuff to mix in them, sort of like a blizzard I guess. So yummy but the calories, WOW! Not something I want to make a habit off, but for an occasional treat, sure!

Just posted a pic with the shorter hair. Going to get a massage today, hubby and I went to J. Christopher's for lunch (which is where the new pic was taken) and I had oatmeal and a poached egg. Trying to eat very well this week if I can, getting ready for Viva La Diva on Saturday, looks like it will be about 20 degrees at race time, yikes, I've never run in weather that cold!

Good job Gwenn on sticking to it! The slower it comes off the more likely it'll stay off. Just keep in mind you likely have a lot of NSV victories!

Okay, Gloria...what is a pumpkin frozen concrete mixer??? Was this at Culvers? And where is Culvers?

The new do sounds cute, let's see it!

Well, stay warm and dry, brrrrrr.

Hey girls, I'm still alive. Still hanging in there! Sounds like you all have been busy being movie stars and loving mommas and runners :) I got through my first round of 21 Day Fix. I have lost a few pounds, but it's slow going. I'm finishing up my 30 day challenge. I may go back to what I was doing before, but I actually did my workout every day for 3 weeks when it was 30 minutes. Well, I did double up a few days.

Anyway, stay warm- the chill is coming!

Was it three years ago when we had all the snow? Or was it four? Can't remember, seems like it snowed three times a week whatever year that was, though most of the time it didn't stick. I am hearing we might get some snow rain mix over the weekend, of course it has been too warm and won't stick but sheesh, it is still November, what is up with that?

Culver's opened in Hendersonville yesterday, talk about unhealthy, but I like it and we will probably eat there once in a blue moon. I am looking forward to a pumpkin frozen concrete mixer. Will get the mini sized, those things have like a million calories just in the small one! I got my hair all chopped off the other day, short now, just below my ears!

Happy 239th Birthday to our United States Marine Corps!

There is a young duo from the show that apparently does the Grand Ole Opry quite often. We saw them last year, they are quite talented but their country isn't my country (more like loud noise hard rock)! Showing my age, I know. But I wasn't the only one, folks sitting around us were holding their ears. So you've been holding out on us, been doing the extra thing for awhile have you? emoticon

Son did a quick drive by yesterday, dropping off some homemade apple butter from the reception, hoping he'd be able to get an earlier flight. It was a ZOO, flights overbooked, longggg security lines, etc, so he didn't even get the chance to see. Offered to come get him but he decided to stick it out at the Delta lounge.

Well, do we prepare to hunker down in case that artic blast heads this way?

Kelly - have a nice, if short, visit with your Son!

Gloria - one of the things I like the most about "Nashville" is the music that is written for the show. The scene we shot the other night involved one of the leads singing a new song that is just AWESOME! I started as an Extra way back when the series started - I don't know if I would be watching if I hadn't been involved. I probably would - I am a sucker for a good soap opera in the first place, but with country music? Heaven! Lol!

Well, Toni, you will be able to say...I knew so and so before he/she became famous! I have to admit, haven't watched it either. I'd say you have gotten some great memories.

Gloria, do get a lot a sleep this week heading into that race. Layers, upon layers, upon layers but you knew that already. Just don't forget to fuel your internal fire as well! Which race is this?

Nothing much going on around here. Son said he'd stop by on his way to the airport. I'm supposed to be a mind reader as too when that is, so guess I should pick up the place a bit so everyone have a sunshiny day!

Kelly, good that you were able to get some help with those chores! Toni, what fun these shoots sound like. The husband of one of my friends does that sometimes, long days I think but if you are with the right people, it can be fun. My friend's sister writes songs for the show but I have never watched it and have never heard any of the music. Gwenn, so sorry to hear about work. That is a rough situation because you are there for more than a third of your day and when it is unpleasant, that just seems like such a long time. I hope that you can find something better somewhere else or that things change drastically very soon so that it becomes more tolerable.

Me, I am just going with the flow, trying to get more sleep (I did slightly better this week). Work was pretty bad this past week and I anticipate it is going to stay that way for the next two weeks. I've just got to hunker down and stay focused. Next week is the 10K that I am doing, I hear that the weather is going to be pretty frigid and stay that way for a while. Get those silkies out Toni, and the sweaters and the coats and everything!

Time flies, right Kelly? Went to a 36 million dollar estate for the Nashville shoot. Had a great time - the people who come to these things are mostly out of work musicians and singers...people in Nashville trying to break out! They are a hoot to be around. The staff of the casting company is great fun too. And the lead performer we worked with last night was just cutting up like crazy and had us all laughing like crazy. He's a really nice person - so talented.

It was nice yesterday until the clouds hogged the sun in the afternoon. Silk longjohns, luv it Toni! And yes they are worth the price. That is so exciting, can't wait to hear all about these shoots and for them to air.

Speaking of Alaska, hunker down it is going to be brutal the next few days up there. Worse since '77.

Son is in town for the wedding of a high school friend's daughter. Gee, out of college and now married, just seems like yesterday she was born. We had a late lunch on the patio at Darfon's, clouds rolled in and they had to close the garage door. He made the mistake of asking if anything needed to be done at the house, well, lets run to Ace and get bulbs, I've got overhead lights out. Two fixtures since I got back from Florida on Monday, then last night I get home and the light on the garage opener blew...wtheck?

Happy Friday, have a great week-end!

Great job Gloria! You are much braver than me!

I'm having a hard day at work. Just so tired of mean people and people acting better than others. Seems they hire more and more people that are like this- they all act the same. Stand around and do nothing. It makes me want to scream.

Trying to stay positive. Trying to tell myself, keep going! Well, here's to a better afternoon!

Enjoy the sunshine before it rains tomorrow.

Well, I'm back and grateful it warmed up as the day went on. Except for monsoon rains and lightening on Thursday most days were perfect and very cool nights (by FL standards). Except for Saturday morning being like up north. One of the signs going into JAX had the temp at -169 degrees, guess H had frozen over!

Gloria, good job on dressing for that run, too many folks don't do it and suffer for it. Nice you got to visit the in-laws. Didn't realize the new Hobby Lobby is open.

Nothing much going on in this neck of the woods, hope all is well with everyone. Have a good day and stay warm!

Hi Toni! The run was better than I thought it would be. I wore layers, one long sleeved shirt, a short sleeved shirt over that, and a long sleeved thermal fleece 1/2 zip jacket. Tights, gloves and a headband to keep my ears warm. I was okay! We walk to a point before we start running and I was shivering then, but once we got started I had to get myself to relax because running when tense doesn't work. I was wasn't hot by any means but I was not freezing. Afterwards I put on a my big fleece parka but I was still cold on the ride home! Was glad to get in the hot shower. In-laws were here, went with MIL to the new Hobby Lobby in Hendersonville, mostly just visited with them. Today was spent doing laundry, running around getting things ready for next week and grocery shopping. Past my bedtime now, argh!

I think that we are going to have a windchill tonight! Cold and windy. I might have to turn the heat on. I resist turning it on until Thanksgiving because I am too cheap and don't want to give my $$$ to Piedmont Gas! But I so cold most of the time that I usually have to turn it on much earlier than that...I consider it a win that I made it this far without it being on.

I have a group run tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. They are saying about 35 degrees and windchill of about 25 degrees. I have never run in weather that cold and I am a little scared! I do have cold weather gear and I will be wearing it but I don't want to get too hot either!

In laws will be here for the weekend, not sure yet what we will do.

Yeah, paws crossed for Max! I was waiting on the rescue list, I thought there was one for a group I belong to. There's been a lot going on and this just got pushed to the back. Oh, just a suggestion to those with pets that are allowed to roam. D'son and Hermitage have reports of serious animal abuse going on with roaming pets (cats in particular) so we have a plea out to please keep them indoors or as close to home as possible. The police are involved and we are keeping it all low key.

Gwenn, wish I had more words to give you but Toni and Gloria said pretty much what I would have. Chin up! Maybe January will be the magic month.

Take care of that strain Gloria...

Was in class when the rains came but we could tell when we went out to check two vehicles that they crashed and use for demonstration purposes that it had come down pretty hard. I don't like being on the big road when it rains like that.

I'm heading out this afternoon, will be back Monday and yes it will be a lotta fun. Meanwhile, keep the home fires burning and have a great rest of the week!

Yay for Max! That's wonderful!

Well since I'm considered an "assistant" and I am hourly, they most likely wouldn't let me. I've also pushed to make me salary since basically I do WAY more than a normal assistant. I mean, I really don't even maintain his calendar and sometimes he'll tell me where he is, but I do more legal stuff. But that hasn't happened. Oh well. I've also requested multiple times to be moved, and he told me he tried to move us somewhere else but that it was denied. Our office is supposed to be moving to a new building, and he told me in January, but I think it won't happen till later next year.

Anyway, Happy Hump day!

Hi All, Gwenn, sorry to hear about the job. Hope you can find something better/different! I love my job but at the moment am feeling extreme frustration. But it is more of a workload issue, not a co-worker issue. Most of my co-workers are pretty awesome.

Toni, so happy to hear that Max has a home!

I am dealing with a pulled muscle, it is annoying me. I went to run last night with my group, doctor wouldn't come out and say not to run, though it was 100% apparent he didn't want me to. Lucky for him there was lightning so we only went about 1.5 miles total. Then the drive home from Brentwood was terrible, so much rain, interstate was only going about 40 mph. Heard today that a record has been set for the most rain recorded in October. It is going to be COLD COLD COLD this weekend.

BIG NEWS! Max has a home! Well, not yet, but on Saturday I am taking him to Lebanon to meet up with a nice lady from Scottsville, KY. She has an elderly cat that sleeps 20 hours a day and a 6 month old who is driving her crazy. Max is joining her home as a playmate for the 6 month old! I found her on Craig's List. She's been wanting a pumpkin colored kitty! YAY! He's sleeping in the trailer but I think he will be ok out there. This morning i went out and he was so warm from being snuggled in his blankets!

Gwenn - what a pain that you have to work there. I used to take off holidays and days with pot luck lunches and certain birthday cakes. Have you ever approached your boss about working from home? They might rather you did that than lose you?

Kelly when do you leave for Sunny Florida? I know you will have a blast!

Everyone have a good hump day - THE WEEKEND IS COMING!!!!

Sounds like everyone is doing well. I love orange kitties! I wish I could take him because I totally would! I know Happy Tails is in Franklin at The Factory, but not sure if they are taking animals right now, and may be far from where you are. That's the problem with picking up strays, and I have definitely done my fair share! Most places consider the animal your responsibility and sometimes won't even take them from you, which I find frustrating. Especially when you are only trying to do the right thing and you know you can't keep them. Sometimes local vet clinics will take animals in.

It was lovely weather this past weekend. Managed to get in a 3 mile hike on Sunday, even though I've been doing these daily workouts. I'm pretty tired! I lost some weight after a few days of my new eating plan, but right now I'm just staying steady. Better than gaining. Today starts week 2 of my 30 Day challenge. It is definitely a chore to make all my meals and snacks to eat, but I'm getting the hang of it. I haven't been very adventurous with trying to eat out, so that hasn't happened much. It seems that the workouts are mainly weight lifting, athough your heart gets beating with alot of them. There was one cardio workout that was so insane- it reminded me of some of what they do in cross fit.

I've been putting in a lot of vacation time because I had so many hours and I didn't want to lose them. Mainly it will be around both holidays, but today I decided I would take Friday off. The sad reason behind that is, I don't want to be here with all of the goofing off because it is Halloween. It's not that I can't have fun. It's just that I'm so over this place and the people, and they are already non-workers, that I can't take it when I know it's going to be a day of nothing and they'll all leave at 2. So to alleviate my annoyance, I won't be there. :) My patience is quite thin here. I was also quite frustrated with a few women here who decided that they both would talk to me about the other. I told both of them I didn't want to be in the middle of it. Of course, you know, that didn't really help me. Basically I shut off communication with one of the women, who acts really immature btw, and just said I was keeping to myself. The other one, she still talks to me, but she sometimes likes to worry me about a situation. So last week I told her that I didn't want to talk about this anymore and I don't want to be involved with the gossip. If I could work from home, that would be my perfect job. Or perhaps if I could work behind closed doors. I sit in the most terrible place- along the "main drag" hallway to the break room. All I can say is that I'm pretty much at the end of my patience rope and something will be changing soon. I'm full of a lot of don't care right now and trying not to worry about these people and the stupidity.

Thanks for letting me vent :) I'm ready for my Friday now!

Toni, I'll put together a list of rescues for you. You all are so great to help them, thank you.

I talked about you yesterday, had lunch with a friend who is into this yoga stuff. She thinks one of our other friends who has her own studio was going to attend maybe that same one but had a big event over the week-end. So you're sore, are ya! So glad you had a great week-end though.

Sounds like you have your engine recharged Gloria! Just as you feel blessed to have that job, I would bet that they are even more grateful for you. Maybe you can get a quick massage or whatever they call those muscular things they do to work that kink out.

Really, into the 80's today, pleez were are getting spoiled rotten with this great weather and will really be unhappy when ol' lady winter shows up.

I'm doing my best to eat healthy for the next few days because when I hit Florida that will all go out the winder. Meanwhile, everyone have a good one and hope you get to spend some time outdoors.

Back to work for me! Hope you can find a good home for Max Toni. It's so sad that someone dropped him off or abandoned him or whatever, he sounds like a nice boy. Your yoga retreat sounds like what I need - lots of stretching! I have a pulled muscle, if it isn't one thing, it is another, yoga would probably help.

Had such a great week off, looking forward to more time off but not sure when it will happen. I got so much done at home and relaxed too. Even though I wish I could have stayed home again today, I was reminded when I walked into the office that this is a great place to work and I am super blessed to have this job!

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS Monday! Make the choice to be happy and healthy today!

Gloria

I'm back from my yoga retreat - totally stretched out! My butt is sore in places I didn't know I had! It was great, I loved every minute.

My neighbor had no luck placing Max the kitten while I was gone so, as agreed, I will pick him up tonight and back in the trailer he goes. It is going to be a rough transition for him after being a much loved house kitten for three days. I can trying bringing him in at night and putting him in the laundry room with Jimmy, but Jimmy doesn't seem to want to have anything to do with him. I'm searching for rescue groups today. It is supposed to get cold on Tuesday. grrrrrr......

Kelly are there any groups you know of that will take a kitten? What if you'd found him - who would you call?

Nice day outside! Had a group run at Fleet Feet in Brentwood early this morning, left at 6:15 and the fog here in Hendersonville was crazy bad, but as soon as I hit Nashville it cleared up - chilly this morning though. Toni, I don't know if Peter D's is any healthier than Demos, but I made what I hoped was a decent choice! It is in Murfreesboro near the Avenue. That place has really grown, wish that we had that in Hendersonville. I thought that the Streets of Indian Lake would be that way but it hasn't turned out like that at all. Yesterday we went up to Gallatin to try out a new local cajun place called Crescent City Po'Boys. I can't eat bread anymore but my husband had a good po'boy and I had a salad with blackened chicken. I need to get up and get moving, lots to do today and it is already close to evening! Yikes, the time goes so fast!

Gloria - sounds like an awesome day! A healthier Demos? I need to find that place!

Kelly - Max is doing great. I have lots of people asking around. I will put up a sign - good idea!

So I'm off to Hohenwald for my annual Yoga Retreat! I leave around 9:30 and I'm going to stop at the Visitor's Center for the Elephant Sanctuary to see if I can buy something. Then lunch and then on to the retreat. This is a Bhakti Yoga retreat where we do a lot of chanting along with the yoga. So I will see you Monday. Max is staying with neighbors while I am gone (inside with a 9 year old boy - keep your finger's crossed. :)

Well Gloria, sounds like you are having a great vacation! Didn't know Demos had another place. Where is it? Pie Five has gluten free pies and it is interesting how you can build yours, their salads are good too. I won't mention the dessert though.

I was wondering about not being able to find raw pumpkin seeds. TJ's is probably using a convection type oven for theirs, wonder if they are allowed to air dry a bit before roasting if that would help the roast time. Oh yea, butter here too!

Hey Gwenn!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Awww Toni, Max sounds like a sweet kitty, and how smart of him to find you! Hope that you are able to find a good home for him. We talk about getting new cats but right now with our three being elderly, we don't think it is a good idea. We need to let them live their golden years in peace, at least as much peace as they can have given that there are three of them and cats will always find ways to torment each other, LOL.

Tried the pumpkin seeds. First, it was hard to find raw pumpkin seeds, but went to Hendersonville Produce and after a minute found a pound of them! Yes! Second, recipe says to roast for 45 minutes...I think that I had them in there for three hours and they still aren't as crispy as the ones from Trader Joe's, but they are good and I like them! Thanks for the recipe Toni! I've been snacking on them...they are addictive! I understand that the ones from Trader Joe's might have BUTTER (my favorite food) so now that I have gotten brave and made one delicious batch, maybe I will experiment and try some with BUTTER.

Tuesday we went to Shelby Bottoms and rode the free bikes that they have there. Single gear bikes with foot brakes, like we had when we were kids! My (somewhat younger) wasn't used to that but it was fine with me! This is the second time we have borrowed the bikes - last time was over a year ago. Then today we went to Winchester and visited Tim's Ford State Park - did a hike, sat by the water for a short time. We really enjoyed it. We ate at a meat and three in downtown Tullahoma for lunch and then on the way home we stopped in Murfreesboro and tried Peter D's (as in Demos, same family, different restaurant). Very good, and very different from Demos! I had a good Asian salad (that I am sure was FULL of calories) with a nice piece of grilled salmon. Heard a rumor that we are getting a Pie Five in Hendersonville. I don't eat a lot of pizza anymore but have wanted to try it since it opened in Donelson - will definitely give it a try when and if it does open here.

Thank you Toni for taking Max in! That must have been quite a sight, you and the pups being chased by a kitten! He must have sensed you were a good luck charm.

And thank your group of kind hearted gals that help the feral community. Maybe stick a yard sign out front with Lost your kitty? Just in case he is lost.

We've got so many furbabies around here we are trying to find homes for, but will keep my ears open.

Good morning Nashville!

I was walking the dogs after dinner Tuesday through a wooded area and heard a kitten! What do you know, a little pumpkin colored tiger striped kitten, no bigger than 9 weeks, is CHARGING through the woods towards us. I immediately turn the dogs and head for home. Chewie and Lucy are both trying to get at the kitty, who catches up to us so quickly it boggles the mind! I've never been chased by a kitten before! So I am jogging back to the house with the dogs and the kitty is keeping up with us, only falling a little behind. I got the dogs into the house and went back and picked up the kitten. I checked the woods, there were no other kittens there. I took "Max" home, watered, fed and settled him into a soft carrier outside on the deck. The dogs were complaining loudly! I took Max to my neighbor April, one of a group of us that feed ferals - she hadn't seen Max before. Her son fell in love with him and named him Max.

So, poor Max needs a home. From the way he behaves he has lived his life so far inside and must have been dropped off. Everything outdoors is a big surprise to him. He is very loving and affectionate. The gal from Hickman County Humane Society will talk Max up this weekend - she's taking some of her dogs to a couple of adoption events. If she finds anyone interested she'll given them my number. She's also going to set me up with some wormer and maybe shots....will be easier to find him a home if he is ready to go - she said she can get him neutered too. Meanwhile, Max is living in an enclosed trailer. I have a kennel and I open the door during the day so that he can be in the fresh air and sun.

So - if anyone knows anyone who wants a lovely little kitty - let me know.

Lol Kelly! I'm glad you got to visit with your MIL though. I'm going to weight class this morning - she kicked my booty last week. I must remember not to throw myself so into it! Old habits die hard I guess...

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Didn't quite make it out the door. Finally caught my mother in law at home and we had a long visit so I've put them on this weeks grocery list. Have a feeling I'll be making a stop sooner though.

Just about made me want to run out and buy pumpkin seeds! Great find Toni. From past experience, I would line the pan with parchment or something.

Sure turned out to be a really nice day. Lebanon had their Oktoberfest, wow, had no idea how big a deal it is. Vendors, food, lots and lots of old cars. The only thing that was missing was the beer garden.

I can't stand it, headed to the store for some seeds. Have a good evening all, enjoy your vacation Gloria. Bonny is in Alabama, rubbing it in.

Gee Gloria, hope you GET that vacation in!!!

Don't you just hate when that happens, go out of your way for something and come out empty handed. Hope you find something, do you still have the container maybe try to figure it out based on their ingredients?

Quiet weekend over here so everyone have a good one.

The sun has gone into hiding! Come back sun! Love that movie clip, haven't seen it in a long time, so fun. Wish I could dance! I am supposed to be on vacation next week but didn't get my work done so I am going to try to work this afternoon to see if I can finish...and if so, still get my vacation time in! Ran back to Trader Joe's this morning because last weekend I had gotten some pumpkin spice pumpkin seeds from there and they were so amazing that I wanted more. But they are out of them for the season. RATS! Will be looking on Pinterest for a recipe.

Saw on the weather this morning that we have had measurable rain every day this month. Usually by mid to late August our grass is dead and we don't have to mow - not this year! It's as green as it gets! Also saw on weather that it wouldn't rain today. Oh REALLY???? Is that why it was raining on my way to work this morning? I hear we are in for several beautiful sunny days but I am at a point where I will believe it when I see it!

Agreed, this weather seems more like December than October! Where are the sunny crisp days that we usually see this time of year? And if there is any fall color, who would know since it is always dark and gloomy! I had to wear winter clothing today - a sweater!

Pretty kitty!

All is well in Franklin. I didn't wake up at all but I know we got a lot of rain and wind. Hoping the rain is over for awhile!

Morning!

All is well here Kelly - rain gauge said we got three inches of rain! Some lightening and thunder but nothing major. Jimmy is a cute cat! He had no problem coming in yesterday around noon when the wind started to kick up. I just propped his door open so he can go out if he wants to and he's just laying there looking outside. Smart cat!

Gloria - I use winter windshield wiper blades year round - they are overkill most of the time, but when the sky opens they help me see. Might be something to try for your commute...

Later....stay dry!
