Morning All, from Montreal, where there is a very weak wintry sun trying to shine through the cloud cover. My weather thingy says freezing rain is in store for us today, I hope not, but it is warmer at -7C (19F) so maybe...
My miserable winter cold is still hanging on. I don't feel as bad as yesterday, at least my head doesn't feel like it will explode! Still all in the head and nose, at least no nasty cough to go with it.
I do have pre-made plans to go out for brunch with friends today, but after that, it's back to resting and recovering.
Looks like a good day to finish another jigsaw puzzle....
Good Morning Mates;
Its Saturday and the weatherman says were heading for a warmup. Right now its 16 degrees but they tell us its going to hit 45 by this afternoon. I like that!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

GoooooOOOOOD MORNING! It's a "beautiful day in the neighborhood" with glorious sun shiny skies and a temp that is due to soar to almost 60F here in upper East Tennessee!!!!
To all 'o you'uns in the northern climes, I'll attempt to employ in print the inimitable style of Don Pardo when I invite you'uns to, "C'moooon DOWN!
Fran is thrilled with her new bathroom and her being thrilled makes my month. Removal of not one but three linoleum floors , installation of a new concreteboard underlayment overlaid with beautiful ceramic tile, a new 17" very water efficient 17 inch high toilet identical to the one we just installed in our bathroom (those of you our age and older will appreciate how much we wanted that upgrade) and the doors and trim painted white to match the walls and ceiling.....all at only six hundred and change. Sure can't beat them apples ..... even for a small bathroom.
Am glad to hear RDonna that at least you're a wee bit better. Even though I'm not to supposed to use it, I have such severe sinus problems that when it gets to the point I can't breathe, I spray a little Aprin into each nostril and less than ten minutes later I can breathe normally.
Hope everyone else who is ailing is better today as well! Blessing on all y'all and prayers of course continue for those needing them.
I have already been to walmart, had breakfrast with a friend, and will get the house a litle cleaned up before the papers get signed with the house offer that I am buying. My mother is nervous, that is for sure, but she is OK. She is determined now to still be alive to move and settle my sister. I have so much work ahead of me BUT I just feel so much better about things. This really will be for the better. This weekend, two months from now will be moving day.
Glad Fran lkikes the bathroom, I have contractors coming next week, as I will demolish both bathrooms and put in new. I am looking forward to this. I will also do the front hallway, change the banisters along the stair cases and I want to change all the doors in the house as well as the whole house will be painted and also in the basement I am removing the wood panel and doing new walls. Its been on the to do list for a long time but I stopped fter the new kitchen as I was just to busy and to over whelmed all of the time. Now I have decided ah if life will be hard, then I may as well make it good and hard and busy and then when things get easier my house will be as I like it! Step by step.
Hope your better RD, Luanne, I hate shopping for beds! Have a great day.

It is supposed to warm up - but it is still a bit chilly - I won't complain tho- as anything at this point over zero is pretty much a heat wave.
Spent the morning finishing up paper work. My niece and dd want to go to two movies this afternoon: New in Town and He's Not Into You (or whatever the name of it is). The timing doesn't work out to do back to back so not sure what I will do in between, maybe errands. Or come home and work on laundry.
Should try to organize my desk a little, sort coupons, look at flyers and figure out my grocery list and menu's for the week. I hate doing this, but I find it saves me money in the long run, and I am trying to be smarter with my funds when I can.
Luanne - you are doing great...
Delft - wow, good for you. I wish I could do that to my house, but have to wait til son is done with college I think. I know you will enjoy it. Keep hanging in there - you too amaze me!
Todd - yeah on your new bathroom
RD - glad to hear you a bit better. DD and I just started a new jigsaw last night - my mil insisted we would love it and had to do it - we hate it. It is a shaped leaf with a farm scene in the middle - it just isn't a very fun or interesting picture to work on, but hate to disappoint mil so we are trying to get it done asap, then on to something we will enjoy better.
Hope all the mates have a wonderful day, whether they be on sea or land.
Good morning from soggy, but sunny, Southern California. First sun we've seen in a couple of days. We've had some really hard rain, much needed.
Well, so far, I see little change in the infection problem. Although the toe looks better, the doctor said that is it severely damaged. So far, I haven't lost it and it continues to grow. No change in the finger, though.
Don't have any specific plans today. Like Donna, I am ailing with a sinus infection and an ear ache.
Good evening from Virginia Beach where we had a respite from the cold weather. It was in the upper 50's for most of the day. Laziness took over me and I stayed in bed til almost 10:00 a.m. I headed to Dollar General to pick up some liquid soap for the diswasher and found toys at 75% off. Being the grandmother that I am, I could not resist buying a few toys. It's always nice to have something new for the kids to play with when they come down to visit. In October they had a wonderful sale online at Restaurant.com; I purchased $25 gift certificates for $2.00 and we used one tonight. Now if I could only garner some coupons for the restaurants in the ports we are gooing on our next cruise! Have a great evening fellow cruisemates. Rollerdonna, take care of your cold and Todd, I am glad to hear that Fran is happy with her new bathroom.
