Happy Monday October 17!!

  1. I'll start it real quick, then I need to scoot to bed.

    I posted several pictures in the Photo Gallery from our Sat. outing to Hidden Valley in Joshua Tree (CA). Hope you enjoy them!

    Breakfast: Coffee or Tea

    Orange, apple, pineapple and pomegranate juice (dh loves it!)

    Whole wheat toast w/ butter or Smart Start and a variety of jams/jellies (lemon curd for those who prefer it), or molasses(I love it on toast!)

    How about something new: a chile relleno!!! Or a big breakfast burrito, if you want something that'll stick to your ribs?!

    Have a good one today, and be safe!

    Wow..I got to start the thread for a new day!!!!

    I hope everyone got to see Extreme Makeover Home Addition last night. My friend in MO told me to watch it. The team built a new house for the founders/directors of Camp Barnabas - a camp for kids with special needs in Purdy, MO. My friend sends her kids there. Warning - the show will make you cry. It was fun to get to see the camp where my buddy Alyssa goes and gets to be a kid and enjoy camp. They also built two buildings for the camp.

    It was funny to watch Ty Pennington now that I know he has ADHD. I can totally see it. It was an encouragement to me to see that the creativity and the "spark" that is a part of ADHD is really an asset to him and makes him who he is. His personality is perfect for the show. There's hope for me!

    morning, you guys
    [color=#2f4f4f]though its not quite midnight here in oregon. so i'll take some of that toast and jam, as well as some pomegranate juice as a midnight snack - thanks, diana.
    [color=#2f4f4f]dh and i went to a home improvement show at the fairgrounds today. he wanted to look for screen doors for the patio. instead we wound up talking with a guy from a company that does the laminate flooring. found a beautiful 'distressed' oak, so he will be here to measure the footage needed on tuesday. told dh we should just stay home and twiddle our thumbs - spend entirely too much money every time we venture out the door!
    [color=#2f4f4f]was a beautiful sunny day today - didn't even need a sweater. hope for more tomorrow. whatever the weather, hope everybody has a good day.

    Good morning, everyone.

    I'm getting ready for work. I'm going to ask if they'll let me do part-time. It's for my kids' sake. Have to take the pup outside first.

    This has got to be quick, so I hope all of you have a wonderful day.

    Oh yes. Heard about that. I live real close to Minnesota so the packer/viking rivalry is big around here. However, I was raised properly so I root for Dallas:hatparty: :chuckle

    The Packers didn't lose yesterday.:hatparty: Of course, that's because it was their "bye" week.:chuckle

    GM everyone,

    Thanks for the breakfast. Early rise for me this morning. Will need to accomplish lots so I will start the day in a few minutes. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekends.

    I am beyond freezing this morning, feels like winter and NOT fall . Hope it is still fall outside and that winter did not barge in

    Have a wonderful day everyone.

    I just saw this thread. Sorry I posted on the other one since this one said 16th and it's the 17th.

    Maybe a mod can merge the two together.

    Good morning!

    I love pomegranite juice and drink it about every other day because it's so expensive here for the pure stuff, but it's good for you.

    I'm off today! It's nice and cool here. Spring has finally arrived and six long months of summer are over. I hope to get outside later with the dogs.
