Welcome to the weekend. Less than two weeks before Christmas, where has the time gone, seems like we just finished decorating. Not sure about you but I still need to finish some shopping this weekend. I did take time this week to do a little shopping.

Don’t know about you but I’m not a big Black Friday shopper, getting up to shop at 4-6am – why?  I do plan on doing some shopping, but later in the day. So how was your Thanksgiving? Hopefully you enjoyed some time with family and friend having some great food and drink.  Turkey, stuffing and all the fixings sure was yummy, not to mention the pumpkin pie with whipped cream!… Read More »

FMS152 – Give Thanks

Good morning, hope you are having a great weekend.  Not sure about where you live, but the weather  here sure has changed.  Friday it was in the upper 80’s, sunny and humid.  After work Friday,  decided not to run my errands, but spend some time in the pool, never know when pool time will end!  Saturday started sunny and humid, but by mid-afternoon there was a “cool” breeze and I… Read More »
