Gertiekindle  That pretty much how I get my husband to cut the lawn too, plus I have to serve lunch.

Larry Lawnmower doesn't ask for lunch.  I just have to plug him in when he's done.  He sleeps in the garage.  That's how I like my robots ... undemanding.   :D

    He's already caused me pain in the form of $114 + shipping for replacement batteries.  I love him anyway, and I think he knows it.  (Don't tell Little Gertie)

    Good Morning!!!!!!

    Sitting here in Alexandria, VA drinking coffee, trying to catch up on Kindleboards since I couldn't be on much yesterday.  Then, working on pulling fabrics for a commissioned quilt, and on to therapy for a knee.  Also, waiting to hear the dish from a friend who was one of the supporting performers for yesterday's Kennedy Center Honors for Barbra Streisand.

    Beautiful sunny morning and 43 degrees here in North Florida.

    Betsy,
    Do you have any pictures of your quilts you could post?  I'd love to see what you do!

    A little milder here today.  Sunny and 33F.  I am not going to get on kindleboards today until I get my morning routine completed.   OOPS  was good idea but already  messed up.

    Simple solution, Dori:  make KindleBoards PART of your morning routine!   :D

    Happy Monday!

    It's bright outside, that's all I need to know.  My routine is simple.  Wake up at five
    Go back to sleep until nine
    Let the cats out
    Give the dogs a pat on the head
    (this lets me know they are still here)
    Give them a good morning doggie biscuit
    Drink some juice
    Get back in bed and fire up the 'puter.
    spend the next 2 hours on kindleboards
    go back to sleep, read or maybe eat and then go to sleep.

    Good morning, all. It's cool and drizzly in Bellingham - downright balmy compared to some of your locations.

    We usually have our tree up by December 1, but are running late this year. So that will happen today. I like to put some cinnamon on the stove, crank up some carols a little too loud (we're liking ReliantK's Christmas album this year), and start unpacking our trunks of Christmas stuff.

    The girls have early release today, and they're excited to jump into that this afternoon.

    Have a great Monday!

    Good Morning! Its cold cold cold here in Shreveport. I am curled up on my couch with Pheobe and my Laptop snuggled under a blanket om the couch with my pomeranian Shadow asleep next to me and a cup of coffee. Don't worry the coffee is in a spill resistant cup.

    Have to get motivated to get up but its sooooo cold..

    Shadow's dream



    Awwww.  I always thought that's what my retirement would be like. 

    50 degrees and clear when I got up this morning.  Just got back from exchanging a bike at WalMart.  It arrived with broken parts.  Buying it at the store means they will put it together for us.  Now I have to check Amazon for printers.

    Good morning! It's 27 degrees and overcast today. Luckily the winds have died down so maybe I can get some of the lights up outside. We also still need to decorate the tree.

    The kids are sitting here waiting for me to get them started on their schoolwork, however I'm thinking of taking a mental health day. They're coloring, so that's art, right?

    I guess so but it's more arty if they draw their own pictures I guess.  You could have them all draw a picture and then have them all swap them to color.

    I'm just happy they're coloring. Usually when they draw me a picture, it takes all my persuasive mom/teacher power to get them to color it in! Draw and switch, I like that.

    Actually, to be honest, we don't do much in the morning. It takes me forever to wake up. My oldest gets started on her stuff as soon as she wakes up, but the younger ones and I usually get going after lunch.

    Good morning (well it is still officially morning in Longview)! I logged in just long enough to wish everyone a wonderful Monday. Harley and I are packed up and headed back to Houston. I have an early morning appointment with my doctor tomorrow, then lunch with friends and headed home! Probably won't be on much until Tuesday evening. I may try to read some posts later today, but my friend's internet and computer aren't the greatest! See you when I get back and caught up!

    So, it isn't morning, but it was a great day here in Orlando! We're having fun comparing the weather here to the weather home every day. Today's high in Orlando, well, they said 68, I believe, but if felt warmer than that. The high in MD? 34! ACK! Lovin' this break from the cold! :)
