Default Saturday, Lovely Saturday!

Morning Mates,
It is an absolutely gorgeous sunny Saturday here in Pictou County after a whole week of miserable gray and rain. It is only 7C (44F) but is supposed to warm up to 21C or 69F, so can't complain.
My finger is feeling better today, soaked it in Epsom salts last night and it really helped.

Today will be my last shift at the Ship Hector, and I have to admit it will be sad to say goodbye. I've loved working there all summer and meeting so many wonderful people, both tourists and fellow volunteers. At least we know we will be open again in May for another season!
So, what's everyone got planned for the weekend?

Good morning R/D and all who follow.

I know the emptiness you'll feel after today R/D but May will be here before you know it!

It's off this afternoon to a friend's to watch a football game with his family. It will do me good to get out of the house for the first time in a long time.

Prayers and Blessings continue.

Morning all. Well, same old thing for me. The other half decided to go to the store early this morning and get groceries, which was nice of him. Only problem is he did not bother to take my list....so he's going to have to go back because he forgot four of five things that we can't go another week without.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Good morning
Woke up with a splitting headache that won’t go away, I hate it!
Another day of summer like weather here in the “windy city” and I must say the tree colors sure are beautiful this year.
Donna like Todd said it will be May before you know it, what a fun thing to do with you summer. Glad your fingers feeling better too.

Only 49 more days to go until my cruise!!!

Good morning cruisers, cruisettes and all the ships at sea. It actually rained for about fifteen minutes this morning. We really need it. I've been watering my arborvitaes and smaller evergreens because they'll need it going into the Winter.

Yesterday I did my "cordnatin" of my office, got rid of some stuff out of the garage and changed the batteries in the Suburban. They weren't testing out as well as they should. They were six year batteries and the Chevy dealer gave me a 50% credit on two new ones. Not bad. The Suburban has the "cold weather" package so it has two batteries instead of one.

We will be leaving in a couple of hours to go and pick up the grandkids. I made a reservation at a local hotel that has a great pool for kids. We'll stay there tonight and let the kids swim their hearts out. It was actually less expensive to rent a room for the night than pay for four "pool packages" that gives you access to the pool, waterslides, and showers. It is included with the room. Though I'm not sure about it since the kids are going to be spending the next month in "hotels".

I hope everyone has a great weekend and has some Fall Fun.

Take care,

Default Saturday, Lovely Saturday!

Good morning! Beautiful and sunny here in SoCal. Goin' back up to the hundreds mid-week, though.

Yesterday, we made an emergency trip to Arcadia to see an audiologist, because Keith dropped one of his new hearing aids. It landed on carpet but he insisted one of them didn't work as well as it did.

Keith has long since departed for Riverside. After he left, I went back to bed and slept another hour. Errands and laundry await me.

Have a nice day, everybody.
