Good morning!
It is going to be mostly sunny today with a high of 77 degrees.
I need to take the dogs for a walk soon. My youngest has to take a Regents in US History and Government this morning. I will be taking my other daughter to a meeting at a local college. And I must go to the supermarket later. I just did a big food shopping on Saturday but I am running out of so many things already. If I have time later this afternoon I want to go shopping for Fathers Day gifts. So that's my plan for today.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!

Good Morning, my Two-Weeks-Away Friends.

Yes, Folks.
Two weeks from today will see us half way 'round to Christmas once agan.

Behold today's count:
Days to the Season: 154
Days to Christmas Day: 196

And that auspicious Milestone (#10 on our chart) arrives on June 26th, ready or not.
(I'm ready.....I hope.)

Warm and humid yesterday.
Hot and humid predicted for today.
Even hotter and humid predicted for tomorrow, when we are supposed to reach 95 degrees.
(Hey! That's too early. It's not even officially Summer yet!)
We are at 68 degrees here, currently.

Well, it's cool at the 'Pines anyway.
Care for dip in the resort pool?
No telling what kind of unusual coffee blend might be served poolside. Chlorine, maybe?
Nah! Carl wouldn't do that. Who would drink it? Not even Bing..........or WOULD they??

And with that shudder-inducing thought, you have a Wonderful Wednesday and a Happy Hump Day, Everyone!

Busy day for me today. My husband and I went to a nursing information session this morning at a local college with my oldest daughter. Tomorrow morning we will be visiting another school. We are trying to gather as much information as we can so she can make a decision regarding the transition from an LPN to RN. My two youngest were in and out today for final exams up at the high school. And the dogs had a groomer appointment this afternoon. I wanted to go to the supermarket but I never made it there. I will have to go tomorrow. But I did manage to get most of my chores done around the house, so that is good. I'm feeling very tired now. I can't believe how hectic our days have been, I'm looking forward to when things start to slow down again!
.
I remember going through that with my girls, it was fun but a tad stressful too as decisions had to be made. We went to all kinds of open houses and info sessions.
check out the nursing program at the University of Vermont, (in Burlington) the professor of nursing is my sister...

OK!
This is it, rain or shine.

Must get to the coast this weekend to get the cottage ready for our first renters set to arrive at noon June 16 and this time I WILL need a countdown volunteer for Saturday and Sunday mornings.

First come -- first selected!

The grandkids are doing well! Thanks for asking!

Wayne and I have a cruise planned this fall. I am not sure what we are thinking by taking a cruise during the fall to warmer climates. After suffering long hot summers here I cannot wait for fall but then we get on a boat and head south! That is what we did last time we cruised. The rates are great at that time so that is one reason why we do it then. Regardless, we are looking forward to it!!!

My son-in-law works for a moving company and often is given nice items during the move. Yesterday he surprised me with 6 Christmas houses from Hawthorne collection! They were still in the package. I have something new to add to my Christmas village this year! That was so sweet of him to think of me!

Our little furry family member is still doing well. Maris has adjusted to home life very well considering she lived on the streets for the first year of her life. She is one happy little girl and we are thrilled to have her!
