I love math and working with numbers, but there is no greater pleasure than reading the numbers in the Countdown.

Bit by bit, day by day, we get more and more enthusiastic about the count numbers.
Let's check out today's:

Days to the Season: 292
Days to Christmas Day: 334
Barely over 2 1/2 weeks remain now until we arrive at our second Milestone of 2013, the the one quarter mark to the Season.
(Hard to believe in just 18 days we will be entering the 2nd of four quarters. Wow!)

Cold, cold, cold!
Don't think it got much if any out of the 30's yesterday and it's 25 degrees here right now with no relief in sight until early next week. Likely snow/sleet mix this afternoon, too.
Oh, well. It helps one appreciate Spring that much more!

You have a Fabulous Friday, Folks!
And an Exciting Eve of the Weekend, too.

I guess I'll have to get out there and shovel the snow sometime too. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Zebra print ottomans, Valerie is letting her wild side out!!

I forgot to ask in my last post: What does the traffic person do and why would s/he have to stay late?

I just read a cute quote on my Facebook page: Water is the most essential element of life because without water, you can't make coffee!

I got in bed around 12:30 and read for a half hour or so before I fell asleep. When that alarm went off this morning, I gave it a work out by hitting the snooze button so many times before I finially rolled out from underneath the covers.

At least one good thing, is that they don't give you a hard time for coming in late, but I am still crunching this morning by trying to pull a specification together that is due by noon. Hopefully I can get it done and get out of here before it starts snowing this afternoon. We are not supposed to get alot now, just 1-3 inches. But, I have my 2 wheel drive truck this morning and that thing in the snow is like driving around on ice skates.... And trust me, people in Maryland do not know how to drive in the snow!!!!
