Default First Friday of 2018

Good Morning Mates

It's a sunny day here in Palm Coast, FL., with the temp, trying to reach 50F.

I am worried about Rollerdonna because she has not posted. I hope that she is OK and the power is still on in her home.

Mrs. TM seems that have picked up a cold, so she is staying home but I will go out and do some grocery shopping.

For those of you in cold and stormy areas, take care and stay safe.

Oh, I hope all affected by the "Bomb Cyclone" are safe, warm and dry. Hoping to hear from them sooner rather than later, although that depends on if they have power!!

We currently sit at 8 degrees F. Getting colder for two more days, then, a bit of a warm up near 30 degrees!! That will be jacket weather!!!! I have not looked beyond Sunday's weather so do not know what is in store for us next week. Just want to get out of the subzero weather soon!

We took down Christmas decorations on Wednesday morning. We only opened one box of decorations this year due to my hospitalization. DD#2 brought over a small Christmas tree and we put out our Christmas train and a few other decorations. That was it, so it only took us a small part of the morning to clear out everything. Later on Wednesday, we picked up two of our grands at the sitter's and took them home for the night. We were to have them all day on Thursday, so a few extra hours on Wednesday night was no big deal. They slept well for us - 8-9 pm until 7-7:30 am, so I can't complain about that. Just wish our dog was more adaptable to little kids, so she didn't spend the entire time hiding out in my office while they were here.

Not much else to discuss. So, stay safe, CM's and have a good day and a great weekend. If nothing else, I wish warm thoughts to all, especially those enduring harsh weather!

We're back to frigid temperatures in southern Ontario, but at least the sun is shining! It will be nice to enjoy warmer temperatures when we reach Florida late next week for our cruise. I was delighted to receive a call from our friend Ray this afternoon, and look forward to seeing him after our cruise.

Don't worry about Rollerdonna. She just posted on Facebook. It appears she didn't lose power at all, and is keeping herself safe and busy.

Good evening. Had to go to Walgreen's this morning to pick up a package. Fed Ex decided the place I
was buying from had to have the package delivered there instead of to my home. SO I have emailed both the place I bought from and Fed Ex that I will not be buying from them again and that if when ordering it comes up as Fed Ex I will cancel the order due to shipping and will let the company know why I will not be ordering from them. IT is not convenient to have to go pick up packages. The temp here is going down to the low 40's high 30's tonight and tomorrow we are supposed to start to warm up, sure hope so.

All have a good night.
