Truth is Thursday. . .

Truth is . . . it has been raining since Saturday. I don't mind it so much because it makes for great sleeping weather.  I just hope it stops before the weekend because we have things to do. More importantly tho' is some areas around here are starting to flood.

Truth is . . . I was so sleepy when I came downstairs yesterday morning that when I went to use the remote for the TV, instead of inputting channel 7 I punched in Pooldad's cellphone number. Imagine my surprise when I ended up on channel "9454".  Which, strangely? Exists! heehee

Truth is . . . Now that fall is here I am getting anxious for the holidays. I can't believe they are just around the corner, but I am excited to go Christmas shopping [online] and eat turkey with all the fixins'

Truth is . . . we are doing a "dry run" for Thanksgiving next Friday. Woot! And Pooldad has the day off. I am doubly excited about that.

Truth is . . . when I told Scooby "I love you old man" and patted his head my husband responded [from the next room] "I love you too sweetheart." ha

Truth is . . . I think I better stop calling the dog "old man" too.

Truth is . . . I am missing my kids.  It is too dang quiet here. [The holidays will take care of that. Which is another reason to love them so much.]

Truth is . . . I really like fruitcake. Homemade fruitcake.  I can't seem to find a good recipe tho'. Anyone out in the pond have a good recipe for it?  Does anyone still make it anymore?

Truth is . . . I hope everyone has a great day.  I am going back to bed. :)

It is quiet with no kids around. I tend to get more done that way.

Christmas shopping sounds like a good idea. I always leave it until the last minute. I need to touch things though - online doesn't work for me unless I already know the item.

I used to make fruitcake. I never found the best recipe ever though. It always had to be made so long before and I was a procrastinator. It was easier to just buy it. There was a lot less of it then too.

It's been raining off and on here. I don't like rain during the week because the guys can't work then and that stresses me out with the rescheduling and angry clients who don't get that EVERYONE on the list is delayed when it rains. Yes, you were scheduled for Thursday, but it rained on Tuesday and we have to do those jobs too.

Personally, though, a rainy day is kind of nice after a long hot summer.

The holidays will be here before you know it and your house will be full of laughter, no doubt!

My Aunt Selma and Uncle Jiggs from Virginia sent us a fruitcake every year - here is a recipe you might like:

Happy Thursday!

Truth is, that was a great post my friend! Happy Thursday to you too. Hope the rain stops for your planned activities at the weekend (Marching and Bowling!). I must admit, I'm quite anxious for autumn to arrive now. We've had a miserable summer, so let's get over it and get on with the next season. Hee Hee! I do most of my Christmas shopping online now too. Beats the crush of the shops in my book.

Rain? I thought that was just a myth.

I love fruitcake too.
It didn't seem like the holidays were that close until I read your post.
Now you've got me excited too.

OMG - I LOVE fruitcake! If you find a good recipe or supplier, pass it on. I could eat myself sick on the stuff.

love you truth is posts.

it's finally cooled off here enough to not be dying from the heat just walking to and from the car. i'm beginning to wonder if we're going right from the hottest part of summer into late fall.

Truth is... I'm totally jealous you got to go back to bed. I had to be out in the rain for the last three days. :(

Truth is... We have some great weather in store for the weekend, which is good, because I too have stuff to do, and I took Saturday off.

Truth is... If you're going to shop, do it during the 17th through the 30th. iT's the National Rural Count. Every piece of mail counts, literally.

Course, your postal people suck, so forget it. :)

Truth is... you're pretty good at this! Thanks for playing!
