It's already up to 62 here, and I got the trash outside without wearing my down coat.

    Hey there!  About 72 degrees here in South Florida...going up to 80.  I'm surrounded by my family and loving life!  We may even brave the mall later...just for kicks.

    Hope everyone is having a beautiful day!   ;D

    42 and partly cloudy here in Maryland. Trying to convince myself that I really need to get up and exercise this morning instead of looking for new samples to download to my Kindle. ;)


    Kindles are very portable.  You can do both at the same time,  :P

    We had a 60% chance of rain but I think it blew over.  It's very nice out today.

    Good morning!  A brisk 26 degrees this morning.  Glad I don't have to go out...  Sitting here drinking tea trying to not make much noise as my husband sleeps later than I do.  Eleanor the Kindle helps!

    Morning all,

    25 degrees and frosty, but lots of sun.

    In the ongoing NYC drama, my daughter actually found her bus ticket! Hooray! It was jammed in the bottom of her backpack.

    As for the passport, the process is to report it lost/stolen at the time you apply for a new one--but you should apply for a new one fairly quickly. That is on my list of errands for the next week.

    55 degrees, clear and sunny. 

    The agenda this morning includes a trip to the library and the $ Tree with Mom and hopefully putting up my outside Christmas decorations this afternoon.

    Howdy,

    It's a nice mild day here.  It rained last night so everything today is soggy.  The wetness is reflecting the sunlight making it seem even brighter out.

    32 and sunny here. Everything is looking very frosty outside. Sitting here contemplating what to have for breakfast and waiting for Mike to come home. He had to head to work at 3:30 this morning. Yuck!

    No, I decided not to exercise this morning. Bad me! I have one rest day a week, which is usually Sunday. I'm making it today instead. :D

    Saturday has always been my day of rest.  I figure after five days of doing what everybody else wants and being stuck in an office all week, I needed a day of freedom.  Chores get done on Sunday and errands after work and lunch hours. 

    Now I'm retired, and I still follow the same habits; even what times I eat and sleep.    ???

    Sounds like a plan!

    You're my inspiration to get back into exercising, as soon and as much as my knee lets me (arthroscopic knee surgery Nov 5).  I had about a mile walk yesterday, not too bad.

    Good Afternoon! It's a bright, sunny day & a wonderful one at that!!!! This morning's mail was special! We were expecting Tim's Kindle. We heard the rumble of the mail truck. We both jumped up and looked out the livingroom window to see if that wonderful package was coming. Well, Mr. Mailman put in a gumbanded assortment of fliers and letters into our box. Then he started pulling away!!!! We were crestfallen!!! About five feet away, he stopped his truck!!!!! He reached in the back and we saw a box!!!!! He opened his door and started walking towards our house! I saw AMAZON on the side! I was jumping up and down and Tim walked out (rather quickly I think) somewhat nonchalantly to take the package! So now we are a Kindling family!!! It's up and running and Tim bought a chess book. That will be interesting to see how it renders the diagrams of the chess board.
