Good morning and happy Sunday. I hope you are well and enjoying the holiday season. How is your December going so far? I’ve been MIA from blog land due to the usual, life has kept me busy and blogging takes the back burner. I worked a full day of overtime yesterday then we got together with family last night for dinner so I am really beat but I decided to log on this morning and finally get an updates post up. Our Christmas tree will be up later on today, I can’t wait. I usually have it up sooner but just have not had the time lately. We had our first snowfall of the season here which turned into a snow storm which then resulted in an early dismissal from work last week. It was definitely pretty to watch.

Happy Sunday. Wow, it’s turned so cold already. This week consisted of icy morning temps in the 20’s and a frosty car with a few warmer temps during the daytime to tease us. All that means is that Winter will soon be here.

I had a busy week with work being hectic and having to work overtime so I didn’t get too much reading done these last two weeks but I managed to finish up one book yesterday so that was good.

I cannot believe that September is halfway through. It is flying right on by. I am enjoying the change of weather and some of the days still feel very summery. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this past week. I was so busy at work that I just kind of watched TV and fell asleep early most nights. And I wanted to see the Harvest Moon on Friday night but I totally missed it. Did you see it?

Good morning all. Can you believe we are halfway through July already? Well, we are. I love these summer months.
This week at work was hectic but I finally got caught up on my deadlines so I can breathe a little easier now. I relaxed in the evenings by watching my shows and working on crochet. I finished up the book I was reading so that was good. Aside from that, this has been a quiet weekend at home relaxing. My daughter wants me to bake an apple cake so I’ll be doing that later this morning. This is the recipe I use and it has become a favorite.

Hello all and happy weekend. I took a month long unexpected blog break but am catching up a little this weekend. I have missed you all. Life has been busy, both my kids had birthdays these past few weeks and work keeps me busy as does life in general. I  know you can all relate to that. And lately the nicer weather has kept me outdoors in my free time so blogging tends to take the back seat. Most afternoons after work have been spent out in my yard reading and relaxing or crocheting in bed watching movies and shows. Our pool is open but I still haven’t gotten it, the weather has been warm but it needs to be really hot for me to go in. I did read a book, a big one too, over 500 pages and my review is up for Doctor Sleep .

Also wishing the dad’s a very Happy Father’s Day today. Yesterday was spent at a Father’s Day BBQ with family so that was really nice. One of the guests was 98 years old and we enjoyed chatting with her and hearing her stories. She was telling us how she was traveling to Russia when Chernobyl happenedAnd that she has volunteered with her church’s food bank for the past 22 years and still does! She said they take her there a few days a week she and sits in a chair and helps place the food on the plates for the homeless. And that she obtained her science degree and she is the last living founding member of a women’s group from Brooklyn who recently sought her out to honor her and she met Mayor de Blasio at the ceremony. She brought the ceremonial booklet and honorary sash with her to show everyone. Founded in 1954 the group has grown and has chapters in several states including California. I could go on and on about the chat I had with her. Amazing and inspiring. I could hardly believe she was 98. God bless her.
