Happy Friday!!

70 and damp in Austin this morning with a pretty strong chance of rain later in the day - oh joy - Austin traffic on Friday in the rain...
Oh well, I don't have to leave the house tomorrow if I don't want to so I guess that's ok.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Good morning.

It is Friday and I don't have to work for the next 5 days. Then it is a marathon 5 days of Disney on Ice performances. Oh, joy. Not really complaining. Those shows usually provide lots of reading time.

We have the potential for some strong thunderstorms and possible tornadoes later in the day. Maybe close to 2 inches of rain. Then we'll have lows in the 30s again Sat & Sun nights.

Hope everyone's weekend gets off to a good start. We're pleased because we actually get a weekend this week.

Good Morning and Happy Saturday

It was delightful not to have to get up at 4 AM.... :).  I am headed over to the coast to walk along the beach.  8) Should be warm and breezy.

Have a great day !

Good morning.

Thunderstorms dropped about 2 inches of rain on us last night, but it doesn't look like we have any damage around here. There were some tornadoes reported to the west of us last night. Raining again at the moment, but it is supposed to clear later. I was hoping to spend some time working in the yard today, but it may be too wet.

A couple of errands to run and a new recipe to try for breakfast in the plans for today. Otherwise, just routine household chores if I can't work outside.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Good morning.

38 degrees this morning with an expected high of around 53 and not near as much sunshine as I had hoped for.

Same old, same old with not much planned for the day.

Hope you have a peaceful Sunday.

Good Morning

The storm the LL had yesterday is hitting us today in Orlando.

Yesterday I walked through some wetlands to see some interesting vegetation and wildlife, then went to one of my favorite Lighthouses, had a wonderful outdoor lunch and ended the day on Canaveral Beach to watch an ATLAS 5 rocket launch.  WHEEEE

Today I must write that dreadful check to the IRS.   SIGH

Hope everyone is having a restful Sunday.

Good Morning and Happy Monday

After some fairly violent overnight weather, today will be mostly sunny 80s.  SpaceX is launching a satellite this evening, so I will have time after work to get over to Cape Canaveral to see that.

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start.

Good morning.

34 degrees this morning with lots of sunshine. The expected high will be in the 60s. Sure hoping the colder weather is through with us.

Some food prep on the agenda today as I'll be working 5 days in a row beginning Wednesday. And 3 of those 5 days will be 12+ hour days. Gotta love Disney on Ice.

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start.

Happy Monday!
It was in the 40s this morning, but I think we are heading to high 70s or maybe even 80s this afternoon.
I start PT for my ankle today.  Both Ginger and I will be very happy once I get a little more mobile again.

Have an awesome week!

Good Morning

Sunny 80s on queue for Orlando.  Long day yesterday working in the field near Tampa, then went to Canaveral to watch the SpaceX launch (which was scrubbed).  Hope to stay in the office today.

Hope everyone's week is going well.

Good morning.

We're to be in the 80s today.

Some more food prep this morning, then mowing on the agenda for this afternoon. I did all that I planned on doing yesterday, now to stay on goal for today. Then things will be in good shape for the next few days.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning.
It was 61 when I got up and we are heading to the 80s again today.  I had a long day yesterday - over 10,000 steps and my foot/ankle were TIRED when I got home.

Good Morning from Derwood, MD.
It is chilly here today, but dry.  We will hit 44 for a high. Partly sunny.
I have a bunch of work moving soil to do today.
Be good to yourselves.

Good Morning

Headed to sunny 80s in Orlando.  Not sure if I am going out in the field today or not.
Hope everyone's week is going well.

Good morning!
We are starting out at 64 with cloudy skies this morning, but are heading to the 80s once again this afternoon.
MY HOT TUB IS FIXED!!  Apparently the heater relay blew on one of the control boards and it must be pretty common because the repair guy had the part in the van.  It got up to temperature by the time I got home yesterday so I was able to get in and enjoy it.
It's hump day - Hang in there.

Good morning.

68 degrees this morning and heading to 75. Yesterday's high was 82.

I managed to get the yard mowed yesterday morning/early afternoon, then did some food prep after supper so we'll have it easy for breakfast the next couple of days. There are leftovers for today and I plan on fixing a casserole today that we can eat on for the next couple of days.

When I started working at the arena, I thought I'd just pick and choose which shows I would work. I never dreamed that I would end up in a position that requires my being there for most events. So, the next few days will be work and no play. But it is still more fun than parts of the 29 years I put in working for the Medicare contractor in the state. With this job, I get paid to read when I'm not busy, and when I leave the place I'm through until the next show.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good Morning

Wind and Rain in Central Florida for the next few days.

Sad day in the office yesterday.  The Federal Agency I work for gets considerable bad Press.  There was an "Activist Group" holding a Protest Demonstration near our building; one member managed to get past our security and all the way to the 7th floor (my office) before being stopped....we had to evacuate. 

So many of us leave our homes, families and friends to come out here to help Americans and American Communities....it is disheartening when this happens (more often than you might imagine).  We will see what today brings, but no field work that is certain.



Glad it is Friday....Hope everyone has great weekend plans.

Yes Indeed, Andra:
BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER

Happy Friday - we made it!

NapCat, that is scary.  We have had protestors at our commission meetings since one of the new commissioners came on board.  Security is typically decent around here, but when the protestors were outside, we had a massive Law Enforcement presence.  It was really weird and a little scary.
I think more people appreciate what you and your agency do to help others, but you really only notice the ones who don't. 
I'm glad no one was hurt.

Have a great weekend.
