Default Wake Up People, it's Sunday!

Morning Mates, is everyone sleeping in this morning? I did, and I didn't expect to be the first to start a morning thread!

Had a great night last night, a wonderful dinner at the Thai place, it is sooo yummy! Then we managed to come in 2nd place in both Trivia games. It was music trivia, and the guy doing it gave us all kinds of trivia tidbits about each song, and sometimes we had to identify the song, or the artist, or the year, or some other relative fact. It was very interesting!

On the list today is shopping for a mini vac, not a full size vacuum cleaner, but something like the old Bissell sweepers, just for in-between cleanings of animal hair and salt from outside. Anybody own one that you would recommend?

Bright sunshine and -18C today, sunny, but cold. Might even take the dog out for a walk, it's so nice out!

Good morning Donna, and those to follow. It is another dull Texas morning. A little on the cool side, but bareable.

I had such a great birthday. Visits from friends, flowers, cards, and candy, and balloons. Jim bought me workout stuff, and a new suitcase. It was over all a good day. I think the best gift of all was the long talk I had with Josh last night. He does not open up about his feelings for the loss of Joe. No emotion at all, but last night was different. I have prayed for the day that I would get my son back. I think it is finally happening.

Jim also called, and he is coming home early, so that was another great surprise.

Today I am going to do my usual stuff. Workouts, pick up around the house, and then games this afternoon, and evening.

I hope all of you have a good day.

Another cool and rainy day here, we are supposed to have sunshine on Tuesday and then back to rain through Sat.

I had a great nights sleep, 7 hours. Best sleep since the surgery.

My sister and BIL (from Nashville) were in Chattanooga and we had a great visit and dinner last night.

Have a great day.

Hi Kids,
The landscape is all white,and the dog is not happy putting paws to snow, so, shoe shopping for this pooch, may be needed

A family dinner is on tap,and a 7 pound bone in center cut pork roast will be the centerpiece, sauteed brussel sprouts, my cold slaw, mash potatoes. Should I set some more plates? All the bones are mine though!

Donna there is a new version of the swivel sweeper, that we have...its red...it's a, "as seen on tv" one, and I like it alot...I also got a new black & decker dust buster thingy,and that will suck your face off

Mike, feel better...

Make it a good one.

Trip, with her book & tea!

Default Wake Up, People, It's Sunday

Good morning! It's dull damp, and cold. Wouldn't surprise me if the storm came earlier than tonight.

Today will be our usual Sunday: Keith is already reading the paper. I might do a little of that before breakfast with a cup of coffee added.

I hope you're feeling better, Mike. You, too, Todd.

Have a good day, people.

Good morning all. another beautiful day here in FL.

Luanne, it seems the best present was having Josh talk with you. Something like that is priceless.

Hope all have a great day.

Good afternoons everyone! I slept in late as I was up late watching the modern version of "True Grit." Goof movie, I recommend it! As usual, a mild day here in S. Texas. My broken toe is already seemingly getting better. The swelling is down but the nice purple and black bruising is still there. Sure hope Mike is feeling better. My toe makes me think of Mike every time I look at it!..Mike has it so much worse.

R & R today but major winter house cleaning for the upcoming week as I may have house guests soon..

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!!

Good afternoon everyone!

After a night of no sleep I finally passed out around 5:00 a.m. and slept until almost 11:00 a.m.. That was nice. I did wake up hungry and Betty had taken out a pound of cod to make something for dinner. I was able to butt scoot downstairs and sit in my walker/chair and give her instructions and I was also able to make the bechamel sauce and add the herbs so I guess it was combined effort. End result was a delicious bacalhau fresco with potatoes. I had seconds but we still have half a pan left so I know what I'll be eating for the next couple of days.

The knee really isn't any better. I'll see the ortho tomorrow morning and get a definitive diagnosis. I know I'll have to have another surgery because my symptoms are classic for a torn ACL. I can't lift my leg and the pain is nasty. Also it swells only after a few minutes of standing. Oh well: I have lots of narcotics and anti-inflammatory to keep it in check.

Snroklr: I bet your toe hurts like heck and it really bugs you. I hope it heals quickly and that you have your own narcotics.

Trip: A pork roast sounds good.

I hope everyone is having a great day.

Take care,
