Default Beautiful monday morning! 8-1-2011

Good morning Mates

We are getting a beautiful start to a new month.
I hope that August turns out to be great month for everyone

Hopefully some common sense will prevail in DC and a huge mess does not happen.

Manuel,

I appears the crisis may be ending. Let's hope so. It's about time everyone started acting like adults...if only for a few days anyway.

It's on the road for me this morning. I'll be in touch via my laptop. I'm hoping (and don't expect) this visit to the Cleveland Clinic will result in any major goings on but we'll find out when I get there.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and those on my prayer list as well as a sincere request for Blessings upon all, continue.

Todd

Good morning everyone:

It's been a rough few days. My son went into the hospital on Thursday and it looks like he'll be there for a few more days. We've been spending most of our time there but it looks like the worst is over and he is on the mend.

It is another hot day here in Minnesota. Gee: It's Summer so what do we expect. I have some business to take care of today, try and get the lawn mowed and I committed to help my nephew finish moving to his new place. He has his trailer full of stuff parked by the side of my house and my family room has the contents of his bedroom.

Well I better get moving. I hope everyone has a great Monday and a fantastic week.

Take care,
Mike

Morning Mates, Todd, I wish you all the best in your medical quest this week, I'll be thinking of you...
Mike, sorry to hear about your son, I'm sure you and Betty are worried, and hopefully he is now on the mend.
Manuel, glad to hear you've got some nice weather. Despite the cold cloudy start yesterday, we too ended up with a nice day, and it seems it continues through today. High is supposed to be 22C (71F), with lots of sunshine, so quite comfortable.

I can hardly believe it is August already, feels like summer has barely started!
No big plans for today, just resting and reading, hopefully in the sunshine.
Still battling pain from diverticulitis, and am now on a 2nd antibiotic in addition to the 1st, + muscle relaxer + pain killer. It's a wonder I can stay awake!
Have a good one everybody!

donna

I'm checking in from beautiful sunny Patzcuaro, Mexico. We've now lived here for one year. I cannot believe an entire year has gone by already.
Knock-Knock loves it here because he can sit out on the patio and lie in the sun almost every day of the year. He's a puppy that did not love the Northwest constant and frequent rain when we lived in Vancouver, Washington...close to Portland, Oregon.

In a few minutes we are heading over to the new house to see how construction progress is going today. Bye for now!

Todd, good luck with your medical visit.
I certainly pray that you get positive results.

Good morning all. The heat continues here. I am looking forward to autumn and winter. Learned this weekend that an aunt has Alzheimer's. It's early stage yet. Still not pleased. I've already lost too many family members to this and am taking care if my dad. It is a heartbreaking disease that literally robs a person of themselves.

Donna, I hope you feel better soon. Mike, I hope your son makes a speedy recovery. Todd, I hope you get good news.

Hope everyone enjoys their day.

Just call me lazy today. I slept in until about 8:30 when D/H woke me to tell me he was leaving for golf. I would have stayed asleep except for that. The 2 grandaughters wore me out I guess. Oh well we had a fun weekend with them. They were excited to see the parents when they got home last night.
I've got the laundry pretty much caught up from the weekend. Still have a few things to do here inside before the afternoon rush starts. Only wish my plans could have included a lunch with Todd like we need in the past. It was not to be this time. Hope he gets good news this trip from his Drs.
RD, rest is the best thing for you it sounds like. Take it easy today and heal.
Mike, praying your son is getting better. Don't you overdo with the moving thing.

I've got to get busy, much to do in a short time today. Hope the temps stay down a little. Forecast is for in the 90's! Everyone have a great day.

Good morning
A pretty warm day in store for us again today as well as tomorrow but hey it is summer.
My friend had her surgery this morning and as of yet I’ve haven’t gotten an update.

D/H & D/S hard at work taking down the drywall in the basement and later today I’ll be down there with more bleach to ensure no mold starts to grow.
Have a friend from Lakeland FL in town coming over for dinner tomorrow, a perfect way to spend my birthday!

Mike… Best wishes for a speedy recovery for your son!
Rd… Rest, Rest, Rest!!
Todd… Hope all goes well!

Hi Kids,
It's going to be a scorchah here, as Bostonians say Because of this I started prepping for supper now. I made some fried eggplant from the garden,and it's sooo good. I also used the ricer to make rice so , I could make some rice balls..I loaded them with cheese & leftover chicken and onion peppers an sausages, which I ground small in the processor...I will fry them up later, to go with the streaks. Now I will rest

Mike I so hope your son is doing much better...Moraine I know how you feel Sue I woke up at 9..ok to be lazy once in a while. Todd , wishing you great results.

Make it a good one.

Default Beautiful Monday Morning 8-1-11

Good morning! Must be something in the air, because I slept in, too. Yeah, it's still summer.

Todd, best of luck in Cleveland.
Mike, all good wishes to your son's full recovery.
Donna, I hope you make a full recovery, as well.

Just the usual Monday here: coffee, some breakfast, and gym for Keith. But I thnk we might have a plumbing problem.

Have a peaceful Monday, people.

Good Afternoon CruiseMates.
Just stopping by to wish Todd safe travels and shout out HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Robin (Aerogirl).

Poor d/h needs a vacation. We don't want to spend a lot right now, so I've booked a nice condo resort thingy in Myrtle Beach towards the end of the month. I think getting away will do us all a world of good! YAY! I love the beach this time of year.

Not much else happening aside from I have to start packing since I am taking a bunch of teenagers to Chicago this week for a 3 day conference. What was I thinking?

Pray for me please!
