Default Cool Monday

Good morning mates,

Our weather has turned cooler. It's not cold but it will only get into the sixties today.
Yesterday was very windy and some parts of Florida did have some damage. Today it's much calmer and a good day to go for a long walk. That is what I will do today.
I hope that you all have a nice day.

TM

Everyone have a great Monday!

Good morning from New England. I do not miss Florida at all but sometimes I wish we just had one sunny day here ? Next weekend will be very busy so I am enjoying a not so busy week. Have to run the the Whole Foods store for some groceries and get some more Easter stuff for the grands. Maybe I look at some cruise pictures as well. I also need to book our flights to FL..they are pretty cheap right now. Our daughter from CO booked their flights to come here over Mothers day We are putting them in a hotel, is Orbitz the best place price wise? I use Orbitz for most of my flights but never booked a Hotel there.

Enjoy your day and yes we are one day closer to our next cruise!

Sue we all have different tastes. I lived in Connecticut for 54 years and I don't miss living in the Northeast one bit.
I enjoy the Gardening here and I like not having to wear winter clothes, going for a walk without stepping on ice.

New England is beautiful but now that I am retired I could not deal with cold and the snow.
The only ice I want to see is in my drinks.

PS... we are very fortunate in the USA. we have 50 states to chose from and we can enjoy a variety of climates.

Morning Mates, it's a dull, cold day out there today with a little freezing rain thrown in for good measure...I would love to see the temperature hit the 60's!

Yesterday we had a good time at the Sugar Shack, it was a nice snowy day and the food was great.



When we got home, we had a visit from our friend with his Rottweiller, and Griffin went absolutely ballistic with excitement, jumping all over the big dog and getting him to chase him all over, it was quite the show!



Today, I plan to decorate for Easter, although it looks a little funny with all this snow....
Have a good week everyone!

p.s. Lakers Fan, I saw your post yesterday about coming to Halifax and looking up Sugar Moon Farm. Just so you know, it is located about an hour and a half from Halifax, and if you're not visiting during "sugar season" when they are producing the syrup, it is still a wonderful place to eat, as well as a beautiful mountain for hiking in all seasons. Here's a link:

Good Morning
There had to be a little bit of the luck of the Irish leftover and hanging over the Chicago area as we received no snow unlike just south of us, YIPPY!!
It's windy and gray but dry.

Manuel....I'm so with you, we love almost everything about Florida and what a dream it would be if D/S decided on going to Florida State for school in 2015, yes mom and dad would be following right behind him,
I keep telling him we'll have the coolest dorm room ever
Not much going on today, hope everyone has a great day!

Ugh, about 4-5 inches of snow on the ground when I got up this morning. There was nothing but wind last night when I went to bed around 9:00 pm. And, it is still snowing. There is a certain groundhog or two with a price on his head!!!

We are to have snow, off and on, for the next couple of days. It will be warming by the weekend. Is it the weekend yet!!!

We did our taxes on Friday. Need a couple of pieces of paperwork yet. We are lucky as we are to get a small refund. Was not sure, as last year was unexpected income and farming stuff. But, all is good.

Still under lifting restrictions, but I finally peeled off the steri strips over the weekend. The itching was getting the better of me. Incision looks good; I have three on my neck, now. Thyroid, the first ACDF through the thyroid incision and the most recent one about an inch above the other two. At least it does not look as bad as I had expected. Now, just to get the fusion to take.

Manuel - I'll take the sixties temps

DougR - be glad you don't have to drive in the snow, ugh!

Sue - have a good day even without the sun

RD - the dogs are so precious!! glad you enjoyed the outing to Sugar Moon Farms - sounded yummy!

Aerogirl - lucky you, missing the snow; not us!

LS80 - enjoy the laundry; I'm doing likewise

LakersFan - hi and enjoy your day!

Hope all have a good day!

Hey mates. The kid went back to school yesterday despite not wanting to. She's ready for the school year to be finished. It will be on May 10th. Her summer job does not start until June 3rd, so she'll have a nice break. I'm doing a lot of housework today. I'm glad to have a bit of quiet today. It's just mom and me right now. Have a great day all.

Good morning. Another sunny day, then we start to col off big time.

The laundry is done, but a big pile of ironing awaits me.

Have a good day!
