Good Morning and it's sunny and 68 in Miami.  It rained yesterday but has cleared up this morning.  One more week until time off!  More time with my Kindle for 2 weeks. May be I can get my 21 pages of books down to 5. :)  Probably not, I'll just find new ones to buy.

    Ohhh, a craft fair near Dulles!?! Too bad we're not flying into there! Well, no, it's not really. That's way to far of a drive from there, but a craft fair sounds fun! It's been a long time since I've been to one. That's not really Mike's thing, tho he would go with me if I asked, being the great hubby that he is. :)

    Good morning, sunshine and a crisp 48 here today. So happy to see some sunshine, although it will be short lived.

    Predictions for the past three mornings have been for temps down to 49, and the lowest it has gotten is 61.  Not complaining, mind you.  62 this morning on the treasure coast is just fine with me.  49 is predicted again for tomorrow.  We'll see. 

    We had heavy downpours yesterday and lightning hit our transformer.  3,000 houses were without electric for several hours.  So I snuggled down with Little Gertie and my new book light (I got the Fulcrum light and I love it) and read until it was time to pick up the grandkids.  The lights came on just before it was time to leave for the Christmas concert. 

    The concert was very nice.  This is the first year this school is open and our first concert.  The chorus and the 7th/8th grade band were surprisingly good. 

    We missed out on lights afterwards.  Most people didn't turn on their displays because of the heavy rain.

    Beautiful and sunny in Jacksonville.  Walked out to get the mail in my bare feet!   :D  I love when it's like this.  It was very cold last night, and will be again tonight.

    Trying to finish up my work so I can go Christmas shopping with my daughters.

    Good morning, everyone - I just landed in Sacramento. Heavy fog - we circled the airport for 45 minutes, and almost got diverted to Oakland.

    Got a busy day ahead, with work, and an office Christmas party tonight. Will be checking in from my phone* occasionally. Have a great day!

    We finally hit the promised low of 49 degrees this morning.  For four days, I've been bundling up at night, thinking the temp would be dropping.  I hate waking up in the middle of the night because I'm cold. 

    At least it's Saturday, and I don't have to go outside until it warms up.  The sun looks pretty bright, so it shouldn't take long.  I think I'll send Larry out to mow the lawn today.

    Morning all,

    11 degrees this morning and bright and sunny. I am up after a restless night with 3 different nightmares. These are not nightmares with monsters and ghouls, but rather, real life situations gone horribly awry. They do not make for a restful sleep so I am tired, despite going to bed early. Sigh...

    30 degrees in Annapolis this morning. Back to reality indeed! Yuck! It was COLD last night!

    I hope to at least get the Christmas tree up this weekend. I have practically nothing done for Christmas and it's only 12 days away! I love going to Disney World at this time of year, but it really messes up with getting things done for Christmas!

    Leslie, I hate it when I have dreams like that. Maybe you'll be able to take a nap today!

    Have a great day everyone! :)

    It's 60 and sunny here in Miami, it is only going to get to 70 today.  A touch of winter, so I can get a sweater out tonight. 

    Leslie, once your son gets home today you can take a nap.  The subconscious stress will get to you every time.

    17 degrees, but very sunny and warming up to a balmy 34 today.  Got up early and did some shopping already.  I believe I only have a couple more small things to pick up and I'm done.  Yay!

    Good Saturday morning to everyone. It is 32 and sunny here in Alabama and I finished my first cup of coffee. I have a few errands to run, have laundry in the washer and dryer and I hope to Kindle today.

    Leslie, once your son gets home today you can take a nap.  The subconscious stress will get to you every time. 

    That's exactly it. One of the dreams was about him, so I know it was the stress from yesterday. Another was about my parents and with the storm yesterday, there was stress with them, too.

    It is Saturday and a nap sounds like just what the doctor ordered!

    I only dream if I am stressed, sick or fatigued. A nap is the perfect remedy Leslie. Enjoy!

    Leslie,

    hope your son gets home soon and you can rest!  And that your parents have power!

    It's still morning, so I can post, right?  ;D

    It's warming up   v e r y   s l o w l y   here, sigh...  We're going out this afternoon for a 104th birthday party for a family friend.  Unfortunately, Mrs. Sullivan isn't alert any more, so she won't know about it, but it'll be an eat'n'greet for the extended family.  I only know about half of them, I may sneak away and Kindle a bit...

    Didn't quite make morning today...oops!  I had to be up and out early and didn't have a chance to make it to the computer.  Had a meeting and then went with my daughter to a synagogue for a service because she had to visit one as an assignment for her Old Testament class.  There was a girl having her Bat Mitzvot and it was really sweet.

    Hope everyone is having a great day!

    Oh...sunny and cool here in Jax...

    I woke up this morning and mom brought tangerines for us. I love tangerines. I've eaten four already and I don't feel so great.

    Woohoo, Leslie!  A Hugh morning, does it get any better than that?

    Everybody is apparently sleeping in this morning....I'm usually up by 7 no matter the day, but not today!  Having a cup of coffee, watching a little C-span here in Northern VA.  Working on a commission quilt today and hoping to get some walking in--supposed to be a little warmer today, already at 32, and the sun is shining!
