Hello!
It is a chilly morning here but it will be partly sunny today with temperatures in the lower 70's.
I am having a cup of coffee, listening to the news and waiting for the girls to get ready for school. I noticed the ducks are back in the pool this morning.
Today I need to go to the supermarket for a few things. I also need to go clothes shopping for myself. I would like to go by myself because every time the girls come with me they get new clothes and I end up with nothing. Tomorrow morning we will be going to a moving up ceremony for my middle daughter. She is in the same LPN program that my oldest recently graduated from. She just finished the first year and will be moving up to the second level.
Other than that, I just have daily chores.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Good Morning, Folks.

Continuing on into our first June week.

Continuing on into our count:
Days to the Season: 162
Days to Christmas Day: 204
And it's as plain as the beard on Santa's chin that we are just over half a week off now from
the 200-day Christmas Day Milestone, #9 on our handy-dandy post #1 chart.
Then, of course, a double-100's level count and a speed pick up.
And after that, it really won't be too long until we start a double-digit count to the Season.
WOW!!

Plenty of rain yesterday with still moderate temps.
It may be wet again today, then we are in for a dry spell for a bit.
Right now, we record 66 degrees here.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, Friends.
'Pines Day tomorrow, you know. First one for June!

Good morning, to you all! How is everyone? I am doing so well! Checking in from Myrtle Beach, SC and loving every second of it. I don't care what we do the whole vacation, I just love be able to relax and sit, listen, and look at the ocean!

What is everyone up to today? Well, you know what I will be doing! DS and I have been up since 6 or so. DH and EA are still sleeping. I will let them sleep until whenever. That drive down is a killer, so I figure let them get caught up. I am on my second cup of coffee, about to soon start my third, plus there is a Starbucks at our resort, so I am good to go!

The weather was horrible on the drive down - it rained pretty much the whole way. Once we got here, it was supposed to clear up, but it really never did. It actually thunderstormed, with some minor flooding. It got scary looking out. As the day went on, it rained off and on the whole day, so we just ordered in a pizza and got adjusted for the night. We will do fun things the rest of the week. I know we will be hitting all of their pools today and they have a little waterpark for the kids, so they want to do that too.

Well, I am off to read some of the boards. I will talk to you guys later! Hope you all have a wonderful day! It's warming up here nice and the sun is peaking through the clouds! God Bless and keep smiling!

Congrats to your daughter on the progress! Do either of your girls think they will go on for their RN?
