Good morning, friends!!

It's a cool morning here in La Crosse, WI. We woke up to 30 degrees. High of 65. Sunny for the morning, possible storms this afternoon.

Hopefully Har & I will make it home before they hit.

I love driving the old Highway 53!! Reminds me of going on vacation every summer, that's the route we'd take. And it takes me directly to our neighborhood
now. We pass a lot of small towns & Amish farms. It's like heaven to me.

Happy Monday to you all =]

Hope you have a great day!!

Thanks. We had a nice mother's day visit. Mom's having to take more pain medication but she keeps going even with her wound pump as a constant companion. We did make it to Tony's for ice cream and to ROs for a BarBq sandwich. Didn't make it to Linebergers this time but we did go a couple of months ago. It tasted the same and was very busy.

Hope you had a great mother's day and we are continuing to pray for your son.

Woke up to a lovely 32 degrees this morning. It was great seeing frost again. We should be in the mid 30s again tonight. Sadly though we should warm up later in the week with forecast highs up to 80.

The older folks here say never start planting a garden until May 15. Those that planted early may have a problem this year.

Have a blessed Monday everyone.

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be a beautiful day here with a high of 60. We actually had a fairly heavy frost on everything this morning. That should be the last one of spring. The long range forecast shows us staying above 40 from here on out at night. I don't have much planned for today. I just need to clean up the mess I made while cooking for everyone yesterday and get some laundry done. I'm also going to get out and enjoy the weather while it's still cool enough to do so. We are going to see temps near 90 by Wednesday so I'll be firing up the air conditioner for the first time and locking myself inside. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
