I heard the wind howling all night long, and it seems the rain that was supposed to come with it turned to snow, as we are covered with a dusting of the white stuff once again. It is presently 0C, feels like -8 with the windchill, and that puts us at 17F in this first week of spring.
Glad I didn't plant anything in the garden just yet....
Not much going on today, just my morning swim class then work later in the day. Tonight we are going to see the local Rotary Club put on a show, "42nd Street". It is supposed to be good, I will let you know...
Well Donna that weather just sounds like ewwww and yuck! It is nasty here too. We should get lots of cold drizzly rain. But I am optimistic tomorrow will be better. I hope so anyway. I am really ready for more springlike weather.
Well I finally got the call to go get our personal taxes at the accountant yesterday. It just makes me sick. But what are ya gonna do.
D/s is still hobbling around. He's sure trying to walk, but says his ankle hurts. I hope there isn't a problem with the implant in there and it's just going to take time to strengthen everything. I have to be patient and not freak out.
Not much else happening here. Just d/s and I are awake, d/h left for work a while ago. The bird is awake and she is chirping. Think I will go get another cup of coffee. The cat has been a very bad girl waking me up all night long, so I put her out of our room and closed the door, so she went down the hall to pester d/s. I guess she thinks if she can't sleep, then no can...Basically she's just like one of the kids, only hairier. I think she is hiding in the laundry room now, taking a nap, I think I will go in there and mess with her and wake her up...
Hope you all have a great day and your weather is better than Donna and I.
Cloudy morning here. Rain is due to start in the afternoon and last until tomorrow night. We've had our high temp. for the day and it will be dropping as the day goes on. Saying we could see a little wet snow in the morning...hope they are wrong!
I've put the grandaughter on the school bus, got laundry going, and have things in order for the day. Will have to help unload a semi sometime around noon and if they have shorted D/H on any of the product it means I will be making a drive to his supplier warehouse to pick up what was not sent from the main factory. Hoping all comes on the semi.
Need to start getting things ready for a road trip this weekend. Will be going north for 2 square dances, Friday & Sat. night. Are staying overnight in Columbus, Ohio where hubby is meeting up with some friends for a round of golf on Sat. morning. The girls are going to see how much damage we can do at the malls! He plays & I will spend! I want to get to a fabric store, since we have none in our area, to find some material for a couple of new skirts. We have the National Square Dance Convention in Louisville coming up in June and I would like to have some new outfits for it. Got a new pattern a couple of weeks ago and want to try it out.
That's about it for here. Hope everyone has a great day.
Good morning Roller Donna, Beenie Weenie, Sue and all yet to throw in their two cents to accompany ours.
While it's going to be mild in the lower 60's, the "Spring Showers" will be hitting this area today and tonight as well.
Turned on the A/C in the car yesterday afternoon for the first time this season and got ambient temperature air out of the events. Sooooo....I gotta' make an appointment with my mechanic.
Glad to hear #1 son has his cast off, B/W. There are probably a zillion reasons why his recovery may take a different schedule this time and I'm sure everything will heal just fine.
This unable to sleep crap has got to stop. I went to bed at 1100 hrs and lay awake until around 0100 so I got up, emptied the dishwasher, wrote my newspaper column and as it was then 0230 hours darktime, I figured I'd go to sleep. No luck, so I got back up at 0315 hrs and around 0430 figured what the hell, I'd have a cup of coffee. Would you believe the coffee acted in the same manner one would expect from something such as nitrous oxide and in fifteen minutes I collapsed into bed, snoring before my head it the pillow and didn't awaken until 0845!
If things don't change soon I'll be forced to resort to the Jack Daniels guaranteed sleep method, aka the Nuclear option!
Hope everyone has a marvelous Thursday, and prayers and Blessings continue for all.
Bright and sunny here today..I want warmth now!! I hope Mother Nature is listening!
Both Bruce and I have been poked and prodded lately,to the nth degree..dentists and Drs...and it's not over yet......Bruce will have a knee op in a week or so, and he was told to go in for a sleep study...not so sure that's gonna happen
So, that's all I got make it a good one....
Trip, with her book & tea!
