Default Thursday - Almost Weekend

....and I thought the weekend had begun without me as a lot of the usual suspects were not waiting for the train at my station this morning.

Quiet days at work are about to come to an end as our end-of-fiscal year follies are almost upon us. This year it is new territory as I do not know my project officers, and therefore don't know which ones are, well intellectually challenged. Should be a fun season handing out your tax dollars .

Hope everyone has a great day!!!! Here is some more beach:



Magen's Bay, St Thomas, USVI

Good Morning All,

The storms have passed - we are quite soggy - we have had to drain several inches off the pool during the last few days. And have a few more to drain off today as well.

The stress level - for me contiued most of yesterday. I am hoping today will be calmer. I am not really sleeping or eating right now, and I know this is not good for me just a few days shy of surgery. I gotta get my act together, and some how rise above the drama that everyone in my immediate proximity seems to be involved in.

Gonna work from home for a couple hours, then head to the office the same time I bring my dd to work, to save me extra running around. Then hope to get home in early afternoon and work for a bit in my rose garden.

Wishing all a lovely day,

Morning All, from Montreal, where we had a stinking hot, humid day yesterday, followed by thundershowers in different areas. Today seems a little cooler, so far... but the grass needs cutting agin!

Doug, those morning pics always give me a lift, no matter what kind of weather day we have in store!
VTJen, take a deep breath, and take some time for yourself today!

Everyone, have a great Thursday!

donna

Good morning from Central Texas where it is a very warm morning. Now that our rain days are over, we are drying out, and soon people will be begging for rain.

Joe called at 2:00 this morning from California. As soon as he heard my voice, he must have realized the time difference. All I remember saying was are you okay? He said yes that he wanted to let me know about his day. I told him we would talk today.

I have no real plans today until Jim calls from work to let me know more details for the trip. I guess then is when I go into high gear.

Everyone have a good day. Doug, thanks for the pictures every morning. Jen take care you are always in my prayers.

Mornin' everybody,

Not much going on today at work, but halfway through my shower this morning, the power went out. Luckily, there was enough sunlight to allow me to get dressed. (Although DW often says it looks like I get dressed in a dark closet!) I manually opened the garage door and moved DW's vehicle out so she could get to work. The last time this happened, it was winter and we had to run around with flashlights. At least the sun was shining.

Gotta get back to work, so...

Have a great day!

Ed

Good morning friends. Another hot day. Guess summer is here to stay.

Starting to make plans/reservations for our trip to Tampa in August. Tony and I are driving our daughter's car down. She is flying down a few days later. I'm actually looking forward to the drive as I have never done it before. We will be stopping in North Carolina to visit with Tony's cousin and his wife. This will be the last summer I have to take a kid back to school.

Not much else going on.

Hope everyone has a great and safe day.

Good morning, Mates!

RD, I thought the Texas Gulf Coast was owner of those stinking hot, humid days of summer! Of course, the difference is that we have days, upon days, of them, without relief!

Hey, Gang! I have had 2 days now, almost completely pain free! Yeeeeaaaa! I guess my hip had healed enough so that the new prescription took the rest of the pain away. I am sooooo thankful!

Waiting on the dish satellite repairman this morning and then I think I'm going to go SHOPPING to celebrate!

Everyone have a great day!

Default Thursday - Almost the Weekend

Good morning from Southern California. The sun is out with a vengence. Everyone sounds bouncy and happy today.

Not much going on today. A pile of ironing awaits me and I have a manicure later this afternoon.

Keith and I look forward to our weekend in Temecula for some casinoing, some wine tasting, and to see the Beach Boys concert Saturday night.

Judy

Good Morning cruisemates! HOT weather setting into Calgary, for today, and heating up a bit each day through the weekend.

Had some blood tests this morning, then got to come home for some breakfast after fasting 12 hrs for the tests.

Heading to the golf course in about an hour for yet another dose of fresh air and swearing
