    'Morning all. The time change still has me messed up...and Gracie is still on the old time, too. Lol We've had the most rain on record for the last two months, but today is beautiful and it's only 33* right now. It's wonderful to see the sun! Cindy ~ Stay safe on the roads! We may have a little snow this next week and I'm sure not looking forward to that! Love seeing the pictures. I need to be cleaning, but crocheting is on the list for today! Have a good Saturday, everyone.♥♥♥♥♥

    Good morning House. This is definitely a record for my being gone and I'm sorry for not posting sooner! Life has definitely gotten in the way lately. The last 2 days have been wonderful because I've had some time at home...without having to drive anywhere! I will go back and read posts again and catch up on the 'Ville.

    'Morning, everyone. Yep, it's still raining! Another 3 inches since I last posted and I think we may need an ark before long. Brenda ~ Your weekend sounds super busy, but nice. I hope you're not coming down with something. I need to sort through clothes, too. I really need to go shopping for a few things, but clothes shopping drives me nuts. Lol Mona ~ So glad you had a good trip. Now I can't stop thinking about fudge! Hi to the rest of the House, too! Most of north Texas was without AT&T internet and U verse from yesterday morning until after midnight. They said it affected about 1.5 million customers! Thank goodness we both have cell phones, but it sure was strange with no TV or internet. Home today playing catch up and back to appointments tomorrow and Thursday. The rain and cold is supposed to last through the end of the week!

    Good morning, House. Brenda ~ It sounds like winter is on its way! I used to love seeing the green tomatoes ripen on the window ledge. One year we had fresh ripe tomatoes at Thanksgiving time. Hubby loves fried green tomatoes, so I used to use some for that. Such good news about your sister. ♥ Cindy ~ I hope you're having a quiet, relaxing weekend. I spent part of yesterday cleaning upstairs and rearranging my sewing room. Hmm, wonder who bought all that yarn! Lol I have two bags to donate to the senior center this week. Most of it is full skeins of RHSS that I've had for a long time. It feels scratchy to me, but I know a lot of people love using it. We had almost 4" of rain in about 4 hours yesterday. A cold front is coming this evening with another 5-7 inches expected by Tuesday and wind chills in the upper 20's! Yikes! I have a dental app't tomorrow a.m. but will stay home if there is flooding in Fort Worth like there was yesterday. 'Hope my newly planted pansies make it! We're meeting our friends for brunch and then we'll go to the store. Have a great Sunday, friends.

    Good Morning. Judy ~ Thank you for the compliment! I'm about half way through the second afghan for Project Linus. How exciting to go to the Yankee's game! Our Rangers had another terrible season. Ever since Nolan Ryan was let go, they haven't done well at all. Of course, he's now an advisor for the Astros and they've been doing really well! Collette ~ The craft fair sounds fun! You just never know how sales will go, but at least you made a little profit. Joanne ~ Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you are okay. ♥♥♥ The last two days have been picture perfect fall days. Starting today we're in for at least 4 days of rain. I planted mums and several pots of pansies. It felt great to be out in my yard again. Back to the laundry...have a good afternoon, everyone.

    Thank you for the likes and compliments, ladies. I try and donate one afghan to Project Linus for every two I list in my shop...so I've started a second one like the picture. Lol DH's appointment was at 9 and we didn't get home until 11:30. Now we're leaving to go stay with Luke and Zach while DD has an appointment. Lots of driving today! Have a good afternoon, friends. ♥♥♥

    Good Morning. It's very humid and cloudy...our temps have been in the 90's again! Judy ~ I'm glad you found a new doctor that you like. Our internist is close to retiring and we need to find a new one. Not looking forward to that! I finished a baby afghan yesterday.

    Hi Ladies. Cindy ~ The hat is lovely! I hope you find your hooks and if not, that you can find ones you like. Several stores have changed the brands they carry and I don't do well with the ones with 'padding' on them. Lol Like you, I have lots of them and my go to sizes are H, I and J. I still use my Jimbo wooden hooks a lot. Have fun with family this evening! Brenda ~ TC sounds like such a sweetie. Mona ~ So glad you're able to have today at home! I love those days. Enjoy your evening with friends. Judy ~ I hope you are feeling better each day. ♥♥♥ I'm cooking stir fry for dinner and most of the prep is done...crochet time for me.

    Brenda ~ Sending lots of hugs and prayers to your sister. She's been through a lot with her hip surgery and now this. Not a day goes by that I don't think about one of our pets that we've lost. Now they are happy memories that bring a smile like when our Irish Setter, Shannon climbed the fence every day and brought back our neighbors slippers or cigs from her patio. We had her for 17 years and she never ran away, but was the neighborhood thief. Hopefully, as time goes by the sadness will be replaced with happy memories. Each time we have lost a pet it has taken a long time for the grief to subside.

    Hi Cindy! I hope you can relax and enjoy your days off. Yep...I'm ignoring those wips and every once in a while I just toss some. And yes, DD is so used to driving in the DFW traffic, but of course she's still young and can handle it better that I can. Lol

    Good Morning. This week has been a rough one and I'm behind on so many things...but I have been reading posts! We lost another friend and Tuesday we went to the third funeral in the last 7 weeks. They live east of Dallas - about 90 miles each way and horrible traffic the entire trip. Thankfully, Sarah wanted to go and drove us to this one. Fort Worth is busy, but nothing like Dallas! That and appointments have made for a crazy week. Cindy ~ I'm so glad you're over the side effects from the vaccine. Are you counting the days until your vacation? Collette ~ I hope you have lots of sales and decent weather! I know it's a lot of work to set everything up. Brenda ~ Hi! Mona ~ So sorry you received the wrong yarn! 'Hope they straighten out the order very soon. We need to leave by 11 so I'd better get moving! Have a good day, everyone.

    Hi Ladies. Brenda ~ So glad you're recovery has gone well! I had to chuckle when you said your house wasn't as clean as you thought...my vision is 20/20 and I have no excuses for not paying more attention to the dust bunnies. Mona ~ Your weather sounds like ours. We've had some lovely cool days and then the heat comes back. Of course, I remember many Halloweens when it was too hot for DD to wear her costume! Judy ~ Great news that the PT is helping. Your projects all sound so nice and way to go on picking up the needles again! Hubby's Mac is a desktop with the monster screen. We got it when he started to lose his vision and it does enable him to make out some things a little easier. He still has a few brokerage accounts and I do the orders, emails, etc. Hi to the rest of the House, too.
