Hello

Today is going to be mostly cloudy with a high of 67 degrees. Lots of rain heading our way too over the next couple of days.
I just got back from my morning walk. I have a couple of more hours before I need to be at the doctors office to continue my training. I have a few things I must get done before I leave so that everything runs smoothly around here later tonight. I am going to do a few chores, including a couple of loads of laundry and I also want to prep dinner. I'm going to finish my cup of coffee and get started.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's supposed to be a cloudy day here with a high near 80. I was going to run down to the south side of Indy this morning but gas is up to $4.23 a gallon so I'll just stay home and play around the apartment. I also need to go through the grocery ads and make out my menu for next week. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

It's supposed to rain like crazy for the next couple days, but we could use it. I just hope it's cleared for mom's party this weekend.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Happy Birthday to Nancy!! 🎈🎉

Good morning, MMC!!

How are you all this morning?

I am pretty good, still catching up on sleep. I may take a nap today, If I can.

It is cloudy & foggy this morning, and 52 degrees. But, it's not raining!

I love the rain, but could use a break. We are missing out on precious deck time!

It's day four of hubby being gone, looking forward to him getting back this weekend.

Today, I need to start some laundry, do the dishes, study, walk Harlowe, and hopefully relax some too.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Good morning! Happy Friday Eve!! It's really cloudy here today but no rain forcasted until tonight - probably just the time we are wanting to start our bonfire at the lake!! Ah well! It was so dark yet at 5:20 this morning for our walk - usually it's getting pretty light by then, but not this morning! Cloudy ol day! Supposed to have a high of 75!

ANd up until the last 2 years I was really planning too. But then life happened and I started havin kids and you know how it goes...nonetheless tomorrow is a huge day for me! 20 years have come and gone so fast. I plan on doing 4 more years and my retirement check will be a lot bigger too! I just wanted to share this with my friends here. I know they are going to have a big deal when I show up to work next Monday. I have met most of the people I am working with. I will be working with a few less people than I was in GA. Anyways I think I am going to take a nap because all thie moving has worn me out! have a good night everyone!
Congrats Dawg! Thank you for your service!! And good luck!!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that wished me good luck for today. It really means a lot to me. Everything went well, considering it was my first day. I have to admit I was a little intimidated. The office gets very busy and I was definitely overwhelmed but I know it is going to take some time before I get into the swing of things. I also was kind of frazzled when I got home because my chores were all backed up, lol. But I will get in to a routine. And it will be good for me, it will build my confidence. I really hope it all works out. I go back in tomorrow for a few hours, I will let you know how it goes
Good luck today - day 2! You'll do great! The ducks ARE cute!

SO glad to hear you are feeling better!!! ENJOY!!!



Welcome back! Glad to hear you are all settled!!



THAT'S IT!!!!! It's the margarita's!!!



Good luck today! Might as well give it a try! If it doesn't work out - at least you'll know! But you might end up really enjoying it! You'll do great!




I hope you are able to enjoy your morning coffee on the patio! It doesn't get much better than that!!!!



Enjoy your days off!!!



Awe - this makes me sad! Prayers going up!



Nice to see you!!



Bring on the coffee!!!


Have a great Hump/Pines Day everybody!!! Not much going on here! Work - hair cut/color after work (YAY) then ??? Need to figure out what to make for supper - something quick & easy! Might have to fire up the grill. Then I'll probably start packing up for the weekend! Of course I'm leaving some time to head to the Pines! See you all there later!
