Good Morning! It is almost 4am CST and I can't believe I am still up! I am always too wound up to sleep after traveling. Anyway, it is clear and 33 degrees here in NE Texas. According to weather.com we will have a beautiful sunshiney day with a high of 61. I am headed off to bed for a couple of hours before church and might be back online later. In any case, I hope you all have a wonderful and restful Sunday!

    Happy Sunday Kindleteers!  The sun is about to pop up any minute now.  It's a brisk morning but not too bad.  I'd guess its about 47 out if I looked it up. 


    Once the sun decides to get up, it should be in the up 60's or low 70's today.

    Normally this would be my last work day until next Saturday but I get an extra shift Monday night weee!  T'is the season for extra shifts!!

    Have a funfilledexciting day!

    Good morning everyone! Happy Sunday. 29 degrees here in southern Maine and it is SNOWING! First snow of the season. It looks like Christmas card snow. White and fluffy and just sprinkling down. No wind at all.

    Good morning!  It's all of 30 today in western VA with a high of 32 expected and lots of wind chill.  We had some snow yesterday, but thank goodness it was very light and went AWAY.  Far away is where snow belongs, I sometimes wonder why I moved this far north and this high into the mountains, but then I look out my window and remember how lovely it is here.  Hope everyone has a nice day!

    Good morning.  It is 63 and sunny on the treasure coast.  That means it will probably hit close to 80 this afternoon. 

    I took The Mom and grandkids to the park to see the Christmas lights and Santa last night.  One was too old to see Santa and the other was too scared. 

    The lights were beautiful and I enjoyed the music, although Mom didn't care for the Jimmy Buffet type songs.  They had a horse and carriage, but neither one wanted to go on it.  Maybe when we go back next week. 

    Since we were in a park, they felt they should run and roll around on the grass.  The boy ended up playing football with some kids and the girl decided to walk on top of the walls.  They had a blast.

    Today is the last day for the coinstar promotion, so I'm going to Albertson's to get a couple of final e-certs from my family.

    I just came in from outside and must revise my earlier weather report.  I just checked via my Kindle and it's just 45 out with a wind chill of 35!  It feels colder now then when I came to work this morning.  The wind picked up a bit and it's very cold.  I may have to break out my jacket!

    That's the beautiful thing about Florida in the winter ... the sun shining in a blue sky, birds flying overhead.

    Gables Girl, please share your bookstore list with us. Good morning all, it is a beautful sunny day here in Alabama & 34. We're supposed to warm up to the mid 50's today. Have a good one!

    Good morning all. It's 20 degrees in North Huntingdon, PA and very windy. We have already shoveled the driveway & steps. The roads were atrocious last night. Icy. Lots of accidents.

    :) :) Good morning from N. Texas!  :) :)
    It's sunny here and slightly breezy. Cold front is on the way for tomorrow afternoon.

    My dog got skunked last night, so I have to get that off before the cold front comes.  ::)

    I started a new book last night (Rings of Allah, part of a trilogy). So far, I want my money back, but I haven't gotten far enough to make a fair judgement... too sleepy to read much of it yet.

    Housework awaits.

    Good morning?  Waaaaaaa.  It's only 10 degrees here in the 'burbs west of Chicago.  :(  I don't like that.  At least it's kinda sunny.  I will be going out today.  My BFF is coming from a little ways away.  That is good.  :)

    Gables Girl, that is why I got out of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and moved a few miles up the road.  Hollywood Beach in the winter is pretty bad.

    Tessa, Larry Lawnmower cuts my lawn.  I just have to head him in the right direction and push the button.  Then I can relax and Kindle.

    Family and friends stay with my Mom.  She's nicer and a better cook.  I could be too, but then they'd want to stay with me as well.  I do have a reputation to maintain.

    Why I live in the Gables, they don't venture over here much and if they do they go to the Miracle Mile and shop.  On the weekends we are just a small town surrounded by big Miami.  

    Bookstore here is Books and Books and Jospeh-Beth Booksellers when ever I get to Lexington, KY or any other place they are.  Love both of them.  They are independent and not the usual chain stuff.
