Default Thursday, 1st Day of Spring!

This cartoon from the Montreal Gazette pretty much says it all for this part of the country.
Montreal and most of the Maritimes is getting a snowstorm today to celebrate the 1st day of spring. So what else is new? So far no snow here, but rain is moving in fast, the early morning sun is already clouding over.
I am off to aquafitness this morning, first time in 3 weeks due to various reasons. Can't wait to get back, I hurt everywhere without that exercise!

I am so glad to hear the word spring; now if the weather will warm up; everything will come up smelling like roses

Good morning Mates

Happy Spring to everyone.

It's very Spring-like here in Central Florida. As a matter of fact my garden is doing quite well.

Good morning Donna, Timmy and all.

Yes, it's the first day of Spring and we may see 40F here. The four foot drifts in my yard aren't really a sign of spring but I have to remember that they were five feet high a week ago.

I'm feeling quite good today. The gut has calmed down and my "soft" diet is pretty easy to accomplish. Yesterday, I went for my surgical consult. I'm now waiting for the surgical scheduler to call me to get it on the calendar. It should be within the next two weeks and, if things are routine, I should be in the hospital two or three days and then on a full liquid diet for two weeks. Yuck. I'll be living off of broth and Ensure. I guess Bourbon or Vodka aren't part of the full liquid diet so that's off the table. Oh well, I'll probably continue to lose weight. I've lost 22 pounds in the last month and could stand to lose 20 more. So there is a silver lining to the cloud.

Today, I will get something accomplished. I have to start adding up receipts and incorporating files and begin tax preparation. I have been bad in the last few months and not entering receipts into my spreadsheet and I will now have to pay for it. At least I have the 1099's and other documents stored so I will only have to copy them into the tax prep software. I've put it off too long. I know that once I get my butt in gear I can finish it in about three or four hours. I then have to do my Mother-In-Law's and son's taxes. Those will take less than an hour.

Well, nothing will be accomplished unless I start. I hope all have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

Take care,

Default Thursday, 1st Day of Spring

Good morning. First day of spring or not, we've enjoyed summer-like weather. If we can't be thankful for rain, we'll have to be thankful for drizzle.

Keith's monitor "died" yesterday, and he is anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new one today. He's also shopping for a new 'puter, too.

I made hotel reservations for Phoenix for next month. First time I ever used Priceline. I think I did pretty well. I bid on four-star hotels. Although I didn't get the one I wanted, I did get the one we've stayed at for years, the Scottsdale Plaza. Just a coincidence, but I'm happy with it.

Have a good day, everybody.
