Default Oh No It's only Tuesday

Good Morning All

Yes it is Tuesday, I always hate it when the week is so young and I feel so old, Oh Well.

It looks like another hot day here in lower Alabama and now I hear that we have or best chance of rain this weekend. The first weekend in a while that all of my chores will be caught up and it will rain, just my luck.

Well you all have a great day.

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Good Morning Irish and to everyone as well!

It's a beautiful day here - cool temps and will warm up nicely by noon - there was a bit of fog this morning on the drive to work but it was really pretty - didn't hamper the drive in at all. The sun will be shining brightly today and the skies clear - this is our forecast for the rest of the week.

Not a lot going on at work, just meetings that mess up the day but that's ok - makes the time go faster and gets us to the weekend faster.

Well, I must get busy with some minor details - so everyone have a great day and for those in Houston and the other hurricane areas - my thoughts and prayers are with you - and for those with illness or family members who are ill - my thoughts and prayers are with you as well.

Good morning everyone:

A nice day here in Minnesota. I guess I finally have to get the lawn trimming done so once the dew is off the ground I will be armed with a weed whacker and go on the attack. Be afraid, very afraid.

Remember folks: We only have a finite number of days to enjoy our lives. Don't wish them away.

Take care,

Hi Kids,
A cooler day here today, as the rest of the week will be, as we move along..I started to change the closets, and decided to do it in stages, and not get overwhelmed..I have the time so why not...but..

Today I will be watching the kids....My kids are moving to Carver, so I won't have them close by anymore, which makes me sad..but I will still watch them on Fridays, so I will get my fix. Since Aiden has taken to calling me, all on his own, and saying "Watcha doin Memere?" we can chat regularly:)

I hope Vt Jen, had found her chi, at sea, and is relaxing as we speak:)

Make it a good one.

Trip, with her book & tea!

Good morning everyone.

The sun is shining and the temps are rising. It's going to be a good one.

TBug, so nice to see you posting.

Mike, I agree with your statement too. I love your sense of humor with the weed wacker too. :-) Thanks for the chuckle. Don't let the thistles get you.

Nice little Irish poem to start us off with today too, Irish. Thanks.

Have a good one all.

Hi from Aboard the Dream

Yesterday as soon as I logged off the Captn announced wind at 50 knots with higher gusts in the POrt of St. John, needless to say we didn't go...
By 5 I was sick and spent the rest of the night in the cabin. Oh, well
Today is better the seas remain calm. Formal night tonight.

Good Morning cruisemates. Summer has returned to Calgary at least temporarily... with temps today going to the high 70s F.

It's been kind of a miserable few days. My father went back into the hospital last Thurs. He's doing a bit better but still there. On the weekend I had my mother in emergency due to heart flutter. That calmed, and they finally sent her home. But I spent the day running between emerg and my father's room updating each of my parents.

Yesterday was my mother's 80th birthday. Surprised her with a new flat screen LCD television. She couldn't believe that "thin thing" contained everything needed to make it a functional TV.

One of her caregivers, who's only been with her for a month, brought her a dozen roses... how very sweet!

This morning I have an eye exam, a couple of errands for my father, then visit him, and if everything is stable I'm heading to the golf course this afternoon.

Morning All, from Montreal, where the sun is shining but the temps have cooled down.
Third day on antibiotics, and they are doing a good job of "flushing" out my system, if you know what I mean!
Unfotunately, they are doing nothing for improving the pain, and I am at the point of considering a hospital ER visit if this does not subside today.

Kuki, sorry to hear of your parents' continued health problems. Wish your mom a belated happy 80th!

"Maw", loved your dolphins!

VTJen, I heard about the bad weather in the Maritimes, hoping it clears and is smoother sailing for you today! I also hope the food, service and entertainment aboard the Dream is enough to compensate for the bad weather!

T Bug, so great to see you posting! Don't be a stranger, I've missed you!

Trip, I did the closet change over the weekend, but not completely, since I still have to pack some of the summer stuff in a few weeks, for our cruise!

Mike, I'll stay outta your way with that weed whacker!

Irish, thanks for your daily blessings.

Good morning from sunny and hot swfl Our daughter cleaned out her closet yesterday and was looking for warmer clothes that she will be needing when we go to Germany over Christmas. flip flops and shorts are a no no thats for sure. She also lost tons of weight over the summer and now transformed to a young lady. Time flies thats for sure.

Today I have to buy a thermos for our group on saturday as we are also serving coffee besides cakes. Saturday will be interesting as we are heading to the homeless to give out food, I can't wait as I love doing this kind of "work".

have a good day mates!

Default Oh No, It's only Tuesday

Good morning! Sunny and plesant but gonna be a hot one . . .

Trip, I won't do the closet change til October. With temps in the triple digits, I can't bear the thought of heavy jeans and sweaters.
VtJen, take somethin' for that sea sickness
RD, what a struggle you're having. Feel better soon.
Mike, happy weed whacking. I'll stay out of the way, too.
Phyll, please give Rosie a scratch behind the ears and a pet for me.

Keith has a dr.'s appt. and a long list of to-do's for the MD, including a pre-op exam for the eye surery on Oct. 1. Ah, aging! I have some house cleaning to do, but at least, no ironing. I finally got a Sept. 24 appt. for the biopsy. And on that happy note, I'll say . . .

Have a good day, all.

Good afternoon from Virginia Beach where we were greeted with drizzles all morning long. I was in a panic this morning as I got out of the car, to go to the gym, I noticed that my car key was missing from the key ring. I called Rob at work to come pick me up. Ten minutes later, alas, the key was found under the driver's seat! I had to call Rob back and tell him I had found my key. Now, my car key is placed on a more secure key ring! Kuki, our thoughts are with your parents; may they both have a speedy recovery. My thoughts continue for those that are affected by hurricane Ike. Have a great day, everyone
