Default Tuesday is a Special Day!

Morning Mates, this Tuesday is a special day for us....we are adopting!
If everything goes according to plan, we may be coming home with a sister for Emma.
We are going to visit the foster family and see how they get along, and if all is well, we will be bringing her home!
I'll post more details and a photo later....

Meanwhile, yesterday was my last Tim's Tour at the Ship Hector. I've lost count of how many busloads of camp kids I've given tours to the past 2 summers, and I've been honoured with a Tim Horton's Camp lanyard and "camp name". All counsellors are given a camp name rather than their real name, and guess what mine is?


Wishing you all a great Tuesday, and I am thankful that this one will be a little cooler with a change in the weather.
All those in the path of Isaac, please stay safe!

donna

Good morning everyone:

My clock is totally screwed up. I fell asleep for about 1.5 hours last night but I was wide awake at 3:00 a.m. and I'm still up. I don't know how long I'll last today.

It is supposed to be a hot one with a high in the mid-nineties. Yesterday was the perfect day. We took the boat out for a couple of hours and stopped at a restaurant on the lake for dinner. It was a nice time and we enjoyed seeing some of our neighbors.

The only thing on the agenda for today is to hang an antique cabinet in the bathroom. It's fairly large and lining up the studs is going to be a trick but I'll give it a shot.

I did put my lack of sleep to good use and booked a hotel in Ho Chi Min city, for our overnight there in December, when we are on our Millennium cruise. Now I have to find one in Bangkok. There are a lot of hotels there but most of them charge by the half hour but they supply a lot of services.

Donna: I hope Emma likes her potential new sister. Puppies need good homes and I know you would supply a great one.

I hope everyone has a great and enjoyable Tuesday. Since everyone is leaving pictures I'll leave you with one from our canal cruise in England. An old bridge near Barrow Upon Soar.



Take care,
Mike

Hi Kids,
It is pouring right now, like I haven't seen it rain in a while. Thunder too....Glad I have nowhere to go!

I'm back in the words with friends business, I got my replacement kindle. I've decided to interact with it differently. Its on all day & I use mine as a mini Ipad, so, I am not the usual user. It's on all day. Amazon does have the best customer service on the planet, I will say.

Donna, hope Emma, gets her playmate today.

Kids are coming in a bit, so, I better amble to the kitchen and get my bagel and tea.....

Make it a good one.

Good morning everyone from a beautiful Texas. We had a couple of hours of rain yesterday, and everything looks a little greener.

Not much planned for today.

I hope you all have a good one.

Donna, A new puppy is wonderful.

Hi to all. It is to be lower 80's today, sunny and pleasant.

Had doctor visit yesterday and I am very, very hypo. Well, duh, no thyroid!! So the meds were upped x 3 and retest in five weeks. No wonder I can sleep most anytime I want (except at night!! ).

RD - hope all goes well with the new "sister". When Mia got her new "sister", it was interesting to say the least!! Mia missed her RULE over the house.

Doug - Aruba was nice, but we loved Curacao. Enjoy!

Mike - good luck hanging the cabinet. And finding a stud!

Trip - I want a Kindle (or an Ipad, or a Nook, or any of those new gadgets!)

Hi Luanne, hope your day goes well.

Not much else going on here. We are planning for the holiday weekend at the end of this week. I hope it goes well for us!

Good morning
Just got home from registering D/S for his junior year of high school, it was quick and painless!
Itís feeling pretty warm and very humid out there already so other than a quick trip to the grocery store Iím staying in and catching up on some laundry and housework.

I did make it to the chat room last night however it was 8:50 and Kelly & Henry were the only two still on.
Hope everyone has a good day!

Default Tuesday is a Special Day

Good morning. A hot one here, too, with temp over 100.

Donna, I hope you get your puppy today. Another Golden? That dog's gonna have a great home!

I just got a new book added to my kindle. I had it on pre-order: A Sunless Sea by Ann Perry. That and a/c will perfect my day.

Have a nice Tuesday, everybody.

Judy

Sadly, we did not adopt after all.
Yes, this was another Golden, but no, it was not a puppy, it was a senior dog. They got along OK, but the problem was there were NO vet records whatsoever, and despite their telling us that she's had her shots, there was no proof. We can't take that risk, so sadly, had to say no...
