Woke up to 64 degrees on the treasure coast and should hit 80 this afternoon.  Somewhat foggy when I took the garbage out, but not as bad as our usual fog.  It must have been pretty overcast because we saw a hot air balloonist and couldn't see any colors on the balloon; just gray.  It was coming down when we saw it. 

Got my Christmas pacakge in the mail today.  Only two people ahead of me in line.  Then I went to the Home Depot to look for a new tree topper.  They didn't have anything, but I got a really nice 6" Frosty nightlight for my granddaughter.  Half off. 

Off to WalMart (again).

    It was -11 when I left the house this morning, but the windchill made it feel like a brisk -27.  We are expected to have a high of 6 today, but with the windchill it will still feel like it's below zero.  Yep, I love living in Minnesota in the winter.  ::)

    Good Morning, 54 degrees wet and cold here in "sunny" AZ today!  ;D
    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. ~Marianne Williamson

    Sunny and warm in Jacksonville...

    I'm afraid I've caught what everyone around me has had and have that sore throat/headache/achy all over stuff.  Unfortunately, pastors don't have time to be sick the week before Christmas!!  So, I've loaded up on drugs and am working on the youth Christmas play details and Christmas Eve stuff...

    Hope all of you stay well...and warm!

    It's 18o in Bellingham, and about 3 inches of snow leftover from the weekend. Our ski hill finally opened this week - a very late opening. The girls are off to school and time for me to retreat to my office and return a bunch of calls from work. Have a good day all.

    Good morning., I'm cold cold cold... our office has yet to warm up this morning. We are supposed to get a snow storm tonight and Wednesday. I'm sooooo glad I no longer ride the cold sounder to work.

    I think I'm going to start saving up for a home some place warm during the cold winter months.. OK so it's not -11 but I have no circulation so it feels even colder than that to me. People here stay away from me. They are afraid I may touch them. My boss calls me a reptile women LOL. Says he's going to buy me a heat rock and lamp to sunbath on so I warm up, just like the reptiles do!  ::)   well if it warms me up......

    I'm off to bed.  But since it's after midnight I thought I'd be the first to wish everyone a good morning and a great day.

    Good morning... sort of! I was out all day and this evening so I am just now getting to the boards. Since it is after midnight here in Texas it is technically tomorrow!  :D

    Anyway, it is currently around 39 which is warmer than it was this morning. We had no sunshine today and don't expect any tomorrow/later today either.

    Good morning,

    20 degrees here and we have snow...but not enough to cancel school. I am taking the afternoon off and going to see Milk with my daughter. I'll report back!

    Good Morning!  Rain, rain, rain here in western VA, I'm very thankful it's not snow.  Remember, snow is a 4 letter word.  My boss is taking us all to Carraba's for lunch today for Christmas, she's the best about underwriting great luncheons.  Betsy, I'm hoping that no news is good news on your knee.

    Good morning!

    Thanks for asking about my knee!  I went to bed last night and remembered I forgot to post.  Dr. says I shouldn't worry, but I was sort of bummed out anyway, everything had been going so well!   They took it a little easier at therapy.  And at therapy, the woman next to me was someone who had arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus like I did but had to subsequently have cartilage replacement surgery.  And her therapy regime is going to take a LOT longer this time.  The cartilage replacement is kinda cool in theory...when the doctor does the initial surgery, he takes some cartilage cells and send them to a company in New England where they clone it and grow knew cartilage.  Then, if you need it, it's ready.  The doctor did that with me, too (same doctor).  We'll know in another month or so if I need to do this.  But watching what the other woman has to do for therapy is kinda depressing.  But I'm trying not to borrow trouble.

    At any rate, I'm hoping the roads here aren't too screwed up.  I have to go out and do tech support for a lecture being give to a quilting group I'm in (http://www.quiltartists.com)

    Leslie, let us know about Milk--my husband and I want to see that!  We were in San Francisco not long after he was killed, the papers were still full and I've been interested in the story ever since.

    Spiritdancer, hope you're feeling better.  My sister-in-law is a retired Presbyterian minister; we well know the demands on a pastor ALL the time, let alone the holidays!

    Good knee news, Betsy.   ;D

    We are having a total heat wave in MN.  It's 11 degrees ABOVE zero!   :o  Had some snow last night, it's the dry powdery kind... not good for snowballs but easy to brush off of the car.   8)

    Morning, it's 71 here in Miami.  Today I'm taking my department out to lunch, my company canceled the Christmas party this year.

    Sounds like good news Betsy, congratulations and I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you don't have to use your cloned cartilage.

    Thank you, Linda.  I am very excited.  And that excitement is completely due to reading the kindleboards and sharing everyone else's excitement.

    61 degrees on the treasure coast. The sun isn't really out yet so it's still damp.  I was supposed to take Mom to the doctors this afternoon at 1:30 for follow up after our fall.  They called and asked if we could make it at 11:30.  Then they called again and asked us to come in at 11:00.  There goes my plan for this morning, but as I've known for a long time ... I plan, He laughs.

    Morning all,

    9 degrees this morning. It snowed all day yesterday and we had an accumulation of a few inches. Light, fluffy Christmas card snow. The nice stuff.

    Hannah and I did see Milk and it was excellent. Sean Penn was incredible. My money is on him to win the best actor Oscar on Feb 22.

    I have a little game I play with myself. After I see a movie, I read a bunch of reviews and try to decide which one I would have written, if I wrote movie reviews. I haven't read all of the reviews out there, but I think the one at Pajiba comes pretty close to summing up my opinion:
