Good morning from northern Virginia!

Working on a quilt today, putting up some decorations.  Having a happy day because my knee is feeling relatively pain free this morning, AND I was able to go down steps pretty easily last night for the first time.  Waahooo!  Life's simple pleasures.

Hoping everybody can be safe and warm with the winter storms moving across the northern plains and the north east!

    Good morning!
    A muggy 60 in Bama with rain. We're supposed to have storms tomorrow and Sunday with a cold front moving in. I'm at work until 1:30 & then will finish up some last minute shopping.

     Hoping all of you where the snow & ice storms are will be safe and warm!

    Good Morning it is 36 here in New York today. We are excepting snow we may get 2-3 inches. It may turn to sleet or rain later. I wish I could stay home today. It is going to be a mess.

    Good morning it's 75 and sunny here in Miami.  This is the reason I'm here, no snow or cold.  Company Christmas party today, due to budget we all brought food.

    Good morning all,

      It's another snow day in Bellingham. We seem destined for a white Christmas, which is a rare event around here.

      My oldest is recuperating from the wisdom tooth surgery that she had yesterday morning, so she'll be housebound for a couple of days. Poor thing!

    Whee one warmish day in the 50's here in So. Ind.  today.  Rained early but now the sun is shining.  I just want to sit by the window in the sun and soak it up.  Today is a concert day for me.  The school concert this afternoon and girlfriends large church concert tonight.   Music,  Music,  Music.

    It was 60 this morning at wake-up time, but it's already up to 78.  At least the inside of the house keeps cool and I don't have to turn on the A/C. 

    Christmas dinner shopping this morning and a stop at Goodwill to drop off another trunk load from both my Mom and I.  A lot of Christmas decorations were donated ... no books this time.  I was very happy to empty two large boxes and make a little more room in my garage. 

    School gets out at 2pm today, so I think I'll take an early nap and devote the afternoon to gift wrapping.

    GOOD MORNING!!!! (Too much caffiene already this morning...)

    I'm getting myself pumped to go out and brave the malls with my girlfriend in our annual shopping trip.  (It's more an excuse for lunch but I do have a couple things to get)...

    Linda, where are you coming in VA?

    Good morning Betsy! We are coming to Norfolk, not good at directions but I think that is east VA, where are you?
    I am enjoying my morning coffee from my new Keurig coffee machine, love it! I don't know what a coffee machine has to do with a Kindle but I ordered it from here.  :-\ Maybe Kindle Koffee? I don't think that classifies as an accessory ;)

    Linda--

    Sounds like an accessory to me!  Yes Norfolk is south and east from me, a considerable way!  If you ever get up to the Washington, DC area, let me know!

    Morning all,

    7 degrees here in southern Maine. The snow has stopped. It looks like we got about 6 inches. White and fluffy right now, it still looks pretty.

    I have a treat for *me* today...a facial!

    I couldn't sleep last night so I was up and Kindling at 2 am. Although the Kindle was nice, I really would have rather been sleeping. Oh well.

    I need to move south.

    I was sitting in my living room yesterday afternoon, about 2:00.  The sun came out.  It startled me to the point I had to step outside to see what that funny looking sky was.  Seriously.  I had not realized how many days it had been since we had seen the sun.  

    Good Morning, 27, no sun, in northern WV.  

    thanks GablesGirl for the invite to Florida.  I did find a federal job available in Florida a few weeks back, but my kids would not be happy for me to move that far away.

    Absolutely it relates to Kindle.  Koffee drinking and Kindle reading; nothing better. 
    Linda, I have been looking at the Keurigs for weeks now.  I like the travel one because of the size.  Not a lot of counter space.  Well, not true, I do have counter space, but it's already used up with my decorations.  LOL.  I am curious to see how others like their machine.  Keurig also offers a steamer assessory that one could use to make latte's, etc.  As I'm not really supposed to have coffee, I justify it by drinking latte's; more milk than coffee. 

    Have fun shopping.  I opted to wait till Monday when there would be less folks out as I only have a couple of things to pick up.

    Good morning, we've already hit our high of 52 today, I hope this doesn't mean that the temp is going to steadily drop all day!  I'm just thankful that we've somehow managed to miss all the cold, yucky stuff this week - although the constant rains have been somewhat depressing.  I'm ready to see the sun again, even if it means colder temps! 

    I'm looking forward to watching Navy play Wake Forest later today - I'm glad at least ONE of my favorite teams got to a bowl game!

    Go Navy!  Beat Army Wake!  ::)
