It is Monday, March 4, 2019. Here in the DFW area of Texas, per weather.com, it is 21 degrees, with a wind-chill reading of 6. Wow. And we have three more nights in a row of below-freezing temps. I like a few days of winter, so I'm done after this week is up. Ha!

Have a great week, y'all.

    The tornado warning siren went off yesterday, followed by multiple thunderstorms with hail passing through my area. My emails from the late afternoon into today's early morning hours were mostly weather alerts. I made it through here, and I hope the rest of the North American states did too, since many were highlighted by that red swath of angry elements on the Weather Channel.

    Here's to a great week for all.

    April is here. For Americans, that means tax time. But it can also be a new month, with new aspirations and goals. It's up to you how to see it predominantly.

    It's hard to imagine what we did without the internet or computers or cell phones. Although pagers and Selectric typewriters were pretty sophisticated in their heydays, I'm grateful for today's technology. Just think of all that has transpired since the invention of TVs in 1927. I'm feeling nostalgic ...

    Good morning, all! It is tax time here in the States. I've topped up what I owed for my 2018 taxes and have made my first quarterly estimated tax payment toward my 2019 taxes, so I've accomplished a lot in my opinion. As a freelancer, if you have money to pay for today's bills due, count yourself blessed.

    Here's to a great week for everyone.

    April has felt so long to me. Looking forward to May 1. True to the "May showers" saying, we have a ten-day forecast, here in the DFW Metroplex, of repeated thunderstorms or showers. May my herb garden flourish, as well as yours.

    Have a good week, everyone.

    Happy Monday to all. I'm getting a late start posting today. I've got my days and nights mixed up. Which is no problem when you work for yourself.

    Here's to a great week for everyone.

    Happy July 2019 to everyone. I'm trying to check in at least monthly. Work is even busier. Loving that. Also loving the unusually cool weather for Texas we are having. I don't think we've hit 98 but one or two days since the first day of spring. Not even after the first official day of summer maybe. But, on the flip side, we've had a lot more thunderstorms this way. I've lost count, but I think I have lost power six times in the last five weeks. That's not usual, I can tell you. One time was on a sunny day with no wind. Go figure.

    For Americans, I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July.
