It was really cold here yesterday. We had the windows closed all day and night. Right now, the windows are open in the kitchen, but that's it. I have on my jacket again today. The sun is shining, but it was shining yesterday, too, and did not help warm up. But, I much prefer the cold/cool weather to the warm/hot weather.

Nothing special planned here in northern California. We will probably grill out at some point. Tonight we have a Cub Scout Bridge Ceremony to attend. It is the ceremony where those who will be going to Boy Scouts cross over the bridge into their new beginnings. There will be dinner afterwards.

I forgot to ask if your son will return to school after two weeks. When does he officially get out of school for the summer, or does he? Do you have any plans for the time off?

Good morning, friends~

How are you all?

It's a cool, breezy, and sunny day, with a high of 64 degrees. Awesome!!

Nothing exciting planned, need to walk Harlowe, shower, and study. Adrian made up some math questions based on similar problems from my course book, so I also need to work on those.

Hope you all have a beautiful day!!

((Hugs))

Hello from chilly northern California. Not much planned for today, except to help Hubby with a spread sheet he needs for Elks stuff. It will help him keep track of activities the Scouts do. I have to add three columns for him and then make sure the formula is correct for each one. I will be checking in throughout the day. TTYL

Crazy Carl. Today is a fall like cool day. How can you NOT like it?! Hopefully with the tax return we can get a nice deck on the back of our house. We have been waiting for years to do so. Sorry about all this randomness haha, its just flowing out of my brain today! Hope everyone is doing well. I have been downloading Christmas movies/music to stock up. Anyone know where I can buy the movie Battle of the Bulbs in Canada? Its on the american itunes store only. Well hope you all have a merry day! See ya later!
Hello there!
I hope you get that deck that you want. I know it can be a drag to wait so long for something. I have been in my house for twenty years and we are finally renovating our kitchen.
Have fun with the guys tomorrow!

I watched the forecast for the weekend earlier and it doesn't look promising here either. I may have to rearrange my plans too.
Gingerbread cookies sound wonderful!
