Default Thursday Morning with Snow on Top

Morning Mates, we have a good dumping of fresh snow here in Pictou County, with temps around -2C or28F. Not enough for a snow day off, although the drive home last night was quite treacherous!
Trivia was fun last night, lots of people despite the storm, and we won! 83 points out of a possible 90, probably our best score yet!

This morning it's off to aquafitness, then to work. The kids will be happy to play in fresh snow today!

Good morning everyone:

Everything is packed and ready. The only things left to pack are the daily meds .

We will head downtown tomorrow around noon and spend the night there and then hop the light rail to the airport. We have a 5:00 p.m. flight so we have late check-out at the hotel and can sleep late. We don't arrive in Miami until 11:30 p.m.. Yuck. We'll just sleep and head to the ship on Sunday.

Yes: We have managed to pack for two cruises. (11 days total) with only one suitcase and two carry-ons. We plan on having our clothes laundered between cruises. I also was able to pack my suit so I won't be one of the "those people" who don't dress for elegant night.

There is very little on the agenda for today. A trip to the drug store and the bank and that's it. We cleaned house yesterday, finished packing, changed all the bedding and finished up the details on some "stuff", so there isn't much else to do. Betty heard the forecast last night that said this area will be in teens below zero next week and her response was: "Woo Hoo!!!"

Donna: We may go to trivia tonight at the local bar. One of the ladies at my coffee shop invited me to come and be on her team. She says they need help and I get the morning trivia question right almost everyday. Betty said we should go and try it. It should be fun.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday and keep warm.

Good morning everyone from a cold, sunny Texas. I realized last night that I was ready for spring.

Mike, You trip sounds great. Have a safe trip.

Donna, Snow sounds good. At least you have something to show for your cold weather.

Jim is getting ready to go back to Brownwood this weekend, but I'm not going. I want to spend some much needed time with Josh.

I have not felt very good the week, so my wifie duties have suffered, so today I will try and get caught up.

I hope all of you have a good day.

Luanne

Good Morning
Up early for some strange reason, I'm thinking it's because I'm actually sleeping better at night since I started taking the melatonin?

Sunny skies here again today which is nice since it's so cold out however were in for a two day warm up with temps around 40 degrees starting tomorrow. I'm still trying to figure out if partly sunny isn't the same as partly cloudy!
Mike.... Happy trails to you and Betty, please have a cocktail or six for me!

Have a great day my friends!

Good morning mates. It's bright and sunny here with a temp of 34f. Nothing much going on yet. We got all of the have to business done yesterday for mom and then she spent the afternoon with me. I'm going to need to start working on the room change to get ready for the move.

Have a wonderful day all.

Cloudy but no rain today. If all the rain we have had came down as snow we would be buried under. I have a big task to get started...We are finally going to be headed to TEXAS!!!! I was beginning to think it was not going to happen again this year but things have settled down and we ARE going to leave next Weds. morning. I am taking the dog to the vet to get him caught up on shots since he is going with us. This should be a real treat as it will be a long trip for him and since he is used to traveling in the motorhome, a long car trip will be exciting for all of us. If all goes well we will be gone about 2 wks, unless we decide we are having too much fun and want to stay a little longer. Well got to get moving lots to get done around here.
Everyone have a great day

Thank you so much for saying so. I do feel better today. It takes a few days, but thank God, I bounce back.

Thanks again

Default Thursday Morning with Snow on Top

Good morning. We have just come out of a power outage that started three hours ago. It was wide spread and Edison didn't know what the problem was. I guess we'll hear about it on the news tonight.
