Leonard's!!! So not fair.  My mouth is watering at the thought of it. (sniff)

I would ship you a malasadas but like I said before, they should only be eaten fresh. 

Have you ever had one of their eclairs?  They are to die for!

    I feel like you are just teasing me. Darn and I have family flying in today for a visit. I should have told them to pick some up for me. If I wasn't so cold I would go for a coconut boba

    Sorry, I don't mean to tease.  I haven't had a coconut boba.  What's that?

    G'morning, 32 here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, supposed to get to a whopping 41 today - I hate winter!  I think snuggled here with my coffee, kindle and laptop is where I'd prefer to be today.  I'm sick, yeah, that's it, I can't go to work today, I have winteritis.  If I had my way, I'd work from home and be comfortable.  Where's the winning lottery ticket when you need it?  Ah well, off to the shower....

    26 degrees this morning in upstate NY (we're having a balmy spell) and snow squalls expected. I have the day off so I'm going to bring in more firewood in anticipation of a blizzard and snuggle up with the kindle. Hubby is out of town.

    Good Morning it is 34 here in New York today. It is going to be cold here this weekend. I am having a cup of gingerbread coffee. I need to finish cleaning my bedroom and living room today. I want to put up my Christmas Tree tomorrow.

    It is 19F this Friday morning in So. Indiana.  I am going to brave the cold to go to our Aldi store soft opening with lots of sample tasting(editing post to add healthy tasting only, and lots of exercise walking the aisles) and out to lunch.(editing post to say healthy burger and fries.) :)  What can I say,  Aldi's built a new store next door to my favorite (used to be favorite) Culvers Butterburgers and Frozen Custard.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    Kim, sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday.  Silly people here expect me to get some WORK done!  How crazy is THAT?!

    I'm in Crystal so not too far from you!

    Today's weather:  Currently 11 degrees, with windchill it feels like 0.  I'm thinking I'll have to put away my flip flops...

    Happy Friday!

    Already 60 here...on it's way to 70 something.  I can't believe how cold it is where so many of you are!  I am planning to go back for my Ph.D. in a couple of years and all the places I would go are north of here and cold...and I think I'm having second thoughts.   ;)

    Today is supposed to be a day off, but it's looking like I have to work.  Oh well.  I started the day by visiting my local coinstar machine and added $70.88 to my Amazon account!  Brigit (my K) is smiling...more books!!

    YAY for Coinstar!  I brought my piggy bank to work since I only work 2 hours today, then off to Rainbow to hit the Coinstar machine.  I've got to do it before the $10 bonus thing expires.  My hubby doesn't believe that Coinstar doesn't charge if you get a gift card.  Thanks to KindleBoards I know better!

    Good morning from very southern California. It is 46 here now and we expect it to get to 80 later. This is great weather for us because in the summer, it can be as high as 123! You folks in colder climes might think that is great but it can get very old.

    Hope everyone has a great day - off to work now - see you later!
