Default My Pillbox says it's Thursday!

Morning Mates, honestly, if it wasn't for my pillbox, I don't think I'd ever know what day it was.
The sun is shining brightly this morning, and although that doesn't sound very impressive to most of you, it is AMAZING to me, since we haven't seen the sun in 10 days!! It is finally clear, crisp, cold and white like Dec. is supposed to be.
I will venture out today for the first time in a week. Enough snow has been cleared so that my Air Boot shouldn't be too much of a problem, I'll just tie a bag over the toes.
I have errands to run and maybe will venture into the mall to see what Boxing Week specials I can find. And, I have a gift card to spend!!

Mike, hope you are recovering nicely from the "Norovirus" that hit you. I'm hearing on the news that a nasty gastro virus has hit local hospitals and nursing homes. I'm glad I stayed home!

Hi Kids,
Going to be warm today, so, more melting snow,.yay...It's amazing how different it is to see how NYC is coping, [not well] as compared to how well we seem to do here.

I too, will venture out today, for the first time in over a week. A trip to the library, returning a gift, and other stops to make too.

Make it a good one.

Good morning
A warmer breeze is blowing some nice temperatures for us here today and tomorrow. We should make it in the mid 40 today and the mid 50’s tomorrow. Today we’re going to be tourists in our own town; we’ll take the train downtown and see all the beautiful lights, holiday windows & buildings. I couldn’t even tell you when the last time was that we did a tour of the city.
I too am a big fan of the sun, no matter how cold outside it’s always nice to have sunshine RD.

RD… I do know how that goes with the pill box. I have a blue one! :-D
Have a great day everyone!

Good morning from a "wet" Minnesota. It's December 30th and it's raining cats and dogs.

It is in the upper 30's and is "supposed" to stay there until tomorrow night and then change to snow. No matter what, when the temperature drops it's going to be an ice rink out there.

The talking heads on TV are forecasting 1" - 2" of snow for tomorrow night. If the storm tracks 100 miles south then it could be 8"-12". I like the 1"-2".

Nothing on the agenda for today except picking up the "party clothes" from the cleaners. It will be strange, after all these years, to wear a tuxedo especially since I'm not on a cruise.

I hope everyone has a great day and a safe and enjoyable New Years.

Take care,
Mike

Good morning from Florida. Right now it's cloudy around here, but warming up nicely.

Thank you for the kind words yesterday. I sure needed them. :-)

Mike, a tux? Are you doing New Years up in fine style? I may have missed your post on that.

Donna, I can also relate on the pill box.

Aerogirl, we love to take the train down to Chicago when we are in WI. It's a nice little get-away, and around Christmas it's so beautiful!

Take care everyone.
Phyll

Good morning Rollerdonna, Trip, Aerogirl, Mike and Phyll and yes, I've a weekly pill box as well and yes R/D, I've also looked at it to remember what day it is. :-) Matter of fact, I have a blue one as well (along with a white one). Fran always set up my medications (probably as could Mike, I could open a drugstore with just what I take).

Tux and not on a cruise? Did I miss something Mike? Geesh, if nothing else, your outfit alone will serve to keep you in line. Guess you're the "Safe Driver" for the night, huh?

Hi Phyll! Yup, I'm still around! To quote a line from Young Frankenstein, "He lives! He Lives!"

While not completely over the bronchitis, I am quickly getting there. Got on the scales this morning. When Fran died on Nov 8, I was 293 lbs. This morning I'm 258. I'd like to keep going down to around at least 235 which at my age and height, 6'4" is fine. I should as I'm not dieting, I just don't have much of any appetite although little by little I think it's returning. Wherever and whenever the scale shows I'm starting back up, I really want to watch what I eat and drink so I'll want to at least stay where I am. What really helps is while I love to cook, I don't like cooking just for myself so that I'm sure adds to the weight loss.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. Now I have to get to work doing my household chores in an effort to play catch-up.

Prayers for those on my list and Blessings for all continue unabated.

Todd

I posted our plans in Henry's NYE thread. Betty and I will be attending a party that is being hosted by friends at the Windows on Minnesota atop the IDS Center. (Minneapolis' tallest building) It is a formal NYE party so I had to dust off the tuxedo.

We are staying at the Marquette Hotel, that is in the IDS Center, so there will be no driving for us. Just a walk across the Crystal Court and back to our room. On New Years Day we will do some shopping downtown and have dinner at Fogo de Chao.

It's the first time in years that we've gone out for NYE. Many years ago NYE was always a special night and we hosted a number of parties and attended a number of others. Since my health deteriorated we haven't gone out on NYE but we figured we needed to get out and enjoy.

Take care,
Mike

Good Morning cruisemates! The rain has stopped. My backyard/golf course is half under water. I guess in the desert the moisture doesn't disappear very quickly... which is sort of counter intuitive.

Sun is shining, but it's going to remain cool for a few days.

Since it's not rainng, think I'll go out and look at some old jalopies, to try and buy a car for my mother and her caregiver; like I did for mysel last year.

For their 3 month visit I think it may be cheaper to buy than rent.

Good morning from a wet. cool Texas. The temps have changed so much, that we never know. I hope to see a little son today. It didn't use to bother me, but now I have to turn on the lights if no sun.

I have been wasting time this morning, playing Gin on line with a woman from Brooklyn. I just learned to play on Sunday, and was doing pretty good.

I have tons of work to do around the house. I suppose I will get to it soon.

I hope all of you have a good day.

Thursday, it is. DD1 just arrived and is about to hit the hay (she was on call last night and did not sleep much). DD2 is milling about and DH is up and creeping the internet on his computer.

Holly (our new dog) is in her crate, being extremely good today. No wimpering and she slept from 11 last night until our other dog barked at 6 this morning. Boy, sounds like I just had another little baby!!

Not much else going on here. In the 40's today and off/on rain, drizzle and fog. We are to have warm temps (40's - 50's) thru New Year's Day and then, a return of the 30'2 for my birthday (Sunday).

Hope all are starting to feel better (Mike and Todd and Phyll) and have a good day!

Haimia, what a great name (Holly) for your Christmas puppy!
I have a little girl named Holly in my after-school program, I will tell her she has a puppy named after her!

Default My Pillbox Says It's Thursday!

Anothr late good morning to you! Cold and sunny here in CA. Didn't stop Keith from "playing" in his workshop, though!

Between bouts on the Kindle, I do laundry and will work in a trip to Pasadena to use a gift card at P.F. Chang's. We'll share "our" freeway with motor homes and trailers come to see the Rose Parade and football game. Keith ad I used to go on NYE to see all the over nighters camped out on Colorado Blvd. Now I just don't like all the traffic.

Have a good day!

Judy
