    Oh probably not me Mac, but older one most likely will watch.

    If you think it was cold yesterday morning. 12 out now. At least the 40 mph winds yesterday, are now 5 mph. Very sunny start, but clouds by lunchtime, freezing and snow, 3 inches, overnight. Messy Monday. The round two Monday night. Snowy Tuesday now, about 5 inches before temps give us ice, then rain.

    Expected delays Monday and Tuesday. I really hope I do get a delay both days. Wet and below freezing temps both days’ mornings. Um, not my idea of fun commutes. Little one will be bouncing if her delay notice is announced early. I have to call in. Will do that around 5:30 each morning, and hope a delay is posted.

    Have a peaceful Sunday.

    Wash, and some more cleaning in store. Plus a grocery run in there.

    Steak and eggs on the morning menu. I said for breakfast. Little one says iI am not waking up until later. I said fine, it will be for brunch. :D

    Lynne, hope you survive the winter

    I have not forgotten what it like to live in winters like you have

    I’m grateful to have moved south and avoid snow and ice for the most part

    Hope you do get a delayed work start Monday

    Well let’s see........my banners this morning have been Dave’s Dvc’s, Waldorf Historia, AAA and the Ram truck one.

    Keisha hope your son is doing well :hug:


    Good luck to your granddaughter on her competition.


    Morning Mac :wave2:........yep in Florida..........spoke with son yesterday and it is 20 degrees there in Southern Indiana. They were in the 60’s a couple of days ago.


    Thank you Lynne.......you are so sweet and uplifting to everyone here......Plants are in the ground and look nice. We decided on planting ixoras.........I hope your weather settles down and you do get the delay to help with travel tomorrow.


    Congratulations on the successful shopping. Trips like that are what mom and daughter memories are made of.


    Buckeev sorry to hear about your hotel Scare.......hope Gage is ok.....it must have been very unsettling for him. I hope they catch the person who did that.

    Yep........sounds like rum is on the menu.......would be even better if Captain Jack served it ::yes::

    Need to go out today for some shopping. Our Anniversary is Tuesday so I wanted to find something for hubby...i’am going to my favorite Chocolate shop in Fort Pierce today......will get him some goodies there too.

    Will say the card industry does make a little cash off me during Valentines Day. I love to send cards and goodies to my sweet kiddos.

    Having a peaceful, restful Sunday Sans family.

    Yep. I detest smoking with a passion.....and it`s something you can smell from miles away!! And awful if you have to sit beside someone who`s clothes smell......we had someone sit next to us in Louie`s pizza once...next table, but all you could smell was cigarettes.....we moved tables.

    I got the recipe for the ropa vieja from Chef Carlos in SW Bar......it was excellent...not quite as good as his, but every last piece was demolished...…..

    That`s not good......hope your son is alright and you enjoy the rest of your trip......

    I thought the WD was finished now??? I must have misread...….we gave up on it season before last......hope you enjoy it anyway...….

    Hope your delay isn't too bad if you get one tomorrow...wrap up warm!!!


    Didn't quite catch up on everyone...…..

    So much for an early night...….why do folks always stay till around 2am when it`s a gathering at our home???

    I really thought they`d all go early.....but no...….last couple left at 2.15am. But, it was a lovely night......food went down well, thankfully I had made what I thought was too much......around midnight folks were looking for more after snacking all night......lol...…and the Old Cuban cocktails went down well...….lost count how much rum and prosecco we went through...….

    So, slept very late this morning......but DH made me the best bacon sandwich I`ve had in years when we finally surfaced...……

    Lazy day ahead......rib roast is in the Aga and will nibble on that later.....

    Have a great Sunday...….…….

    lol......I think he must have forgot :blush: and it was the last of last batch we bought......that's on my list for tomorrow...…



    Well, I gave in and installed an ad blocker on both of my ipads…….annoying scrolling banner is gone on both of them now...….

    When I say I installed them :rolleyes1...….I really mean Kyle showed me how to do it when they came back in....I`m sure I`d have picked the wrong one...…

    But...annoying banner gone!!! I never saw it on my laptop for some reason......

    Ah yes Sunday. MiL and FiL In lasted night from Mexico. Stayed until freezing rain done and temps warmer, and she got the call her brother in law had died- has been on hospice past week (advanced pancreatic cancer- he’d actually been doing well up until last month or so). MiL has been planning big family reunion in July- nearly all her family and nieces/nephews and siblings and their families etc coming. Her sister told her this morning she is grateful to have that to look forward too, seeing all the family for a happy reason.

    Pancakes fruit and bacon for breakfast. Need a grocery run here too Schumi as that’s the last of the bacon.

    Middle got back late last night from robotics competition - was a state qualifier competition (I’m bad at understanding the differences in competition lol) placed 10th (and much higher than boys team :) ). They were pleased.

    Oh and in a fun twist- the summer alumni program oldest dd did last year- rumor is they are opening it up to ALL Alumni who’ve successfully completed a DCP-regardless of year, no longer need to be in college. Think DH is half seriously considering applying :rotfl2:. Technically he does have summers off...
    Lynne hope that delay gets posted, sounds like could be a really nasty commute!
    Countdown is getting close for Patty! Hope the weather pattern changes and it’s nice for you!

    Hello to all the other peeps!

    We finally got the snow today that the weatherman’s been talking about since Friday lol. Went to church, then Costco because daughter wanted a few things (clothing). Then hit the Spa store to get hot tub water analyzed to make sure it’s correct. I do it once a month. Same street Costco is on! On the way home it was just starting to snow. Looks like it’s starting to stick, maybe 2” so far. Coming down pretty good now. Husbands gotta go out there with the snow blower! Being on the coast we get the wet heavy type snow.
    Looks like plans tomorrow will be canceled. Was going out to movies with a friend, but with the snow I won’t be going anywhere!

    Glad I got out with the daughters for lunch and shopping yesterday!

    I have old photos of me as a child all dressed up with the coat, matching shoes, hat and white gloves!

    Fortunately I didn’t have to do anything about that woman trying to jump the queue. Costco to their credit had plenty of employees out keeping everything orderly. She was finally turned away after arguing with the employees. Several people in cars behind me started yelling at her too!
    I never go without a healthy amount of travel insurance to the USA either. The medical costs are staggering.

    Glad to hear DS is ok after ER visit.
    Our middle schools here are gr 6-8, then High School 9-12. Grade 4 seems so young for last year of elementary school! Esp. for boys. I worked in a high school and geez, some of those gr 9 boys looked like they should be in elementary school lol!
    I was out to lunch with friends one day and the ladies of the red hat society were there! First time I’ve seen them.

    I can’t keep straight where everyone lives lol!

    Good job! I was lucky with both girls that it didn’t take long finding a dress. My oldest DD got her hair and nails done at her usual hairdresser. But I did her make up. I’m good at it! My youngest wanted to do her own hair and makeup. She doesn’t like anything too fussy.

    Congrats! I wish they had dress rental like they have Tux rental for boys! So nice the bride wants to involve you in the planning and dress shopping.

    Yay! Can’t wait for The Dead tonight. So much new stuff. Wonder where Neegan went! Whisperers! Will we find out about the helicopters finally?
    Did Rick really die??? Lol.

    Can’t tolerate cigarette smoke either. So glad they banned it from public places and restaurants. One time I was driving down to Seattle and my friend suggested we stop at a casino that had a good buffet. I held my breath or tried to going thru casino to get to the restaurant. Ugh. It’s awful in grocery store waiting for cashier and the person in front of you reeks from smoke.
    Yikes 2:00am! They must all have been having a great time. Mmmmm love prosecco!

    Have a good Sunday everyone.

    Sue, I won’t be sad if we only get a dusting. Sending some warm thoughts your way.

    Patty, hope your flight on Thursday is a go, and uneventful.

    Robo, hope all are well now, and enjoying the Florida sun. Just saying, could use your sister’s pocket book strap this year.

    With that, made beef teriyaki with lots of rice and vegetables for dinner. Kids were surprised how good it tasted. Uh, I can cook ya know.

    Just waiting it out. The snow is not quite here yet. Won’t stay up for it, as saying now will be in the wee hours. Will be listening to news starting around 4:30 tomorrow morning.


    Quiet night to all the homies. Hope Buckeev is now having fun and good night sleeps.

    Yes, Seattle is getting the worst of it. Looking out on my balcony railing I’d say we got 3-4” today.

    Watched at 7:00pm Pacific time great episode. Going to be an interesting season. But no helicopter in the episode. Watched Talking dead too. I recorded the Bonus episode, going to watch now! Yippee!

    MonyK, what sad news about your MiL sister in law.......pancreatic cancer is indeed a nasty one. Sounds like the reunion will be much welcome family time.......

    Sue, sorry your weather has turned bad again......I think everyone’s ready for spring to arrive this year.......yes, not sure why it’s always so late when it’s at our home but.......always a late night!

    Lynne.....love teriyaki......but always with chicken! One of Kyle’s favourite dishes and always a popular dish to serve him......he’s a noodle guy though.......I like rice.........hope your weather isn’t as bad as expected and your journey is an easy one.

    mac.......glad your favourite show is back........not sure why I thought it was cancelled!



    So, Monday once again.........supposed to be a beautiful week ahead for us. Not exactly warm, up at least the sun is supposed to shine. Should get outside and hopefully have some walks along the beach at some point. Feel as if we’ve been cooped up so much this past January......time to dust the cobwebs off.

    No idea of any plans this week.......may start our March trip report soon, as December one is done....always nice to see them finished!

    No bacon so breakfast will be something less exciting.......like thebsound of Monyk’s pancakes and fruit....minus bacon.......may head up to the farm store we buy ours from.....we get most of our meat from the same place. It’s a bit of a raw place as they serve business customers too and it’s not a place vegetarians would want to walk through......we don’t mind though, their meat is such good quality.

    So, have a great Monday.........

    Hey- go for it DH!! You'll get more trips to Orlando, Monyk!!:thumbsup2

    Oh- hope it passes soon!! The wet snow is the worst!! Hard to move- even with a snow blower!

    Lynne- hope the snow isn't too bad!!

    :wave: everyone!! Happy Monday morning!!

    Flurries here now- expecting about 6 inches of snow total by Wednesday which for us is nothing! Early start to the work day here- have a lot to do in the next couple of days!! Need another cup of coffee!!

    I think we got around 3 inches. Quick brush off the car, reports of some spin outs, but roads are generally clear. Fine with me. 30 out, eh, and the dark of the per-dawn commute. Just glad I have all wheel drive, and all season tires. Snow showers as I commuted. This snow dump is round one. Round 2 arrives tonight, and brings more snow, as in more inches then last night's. But we are on the weather roller coaster. 36 the high today, by Friday, we will see a day in the 50's. And lest this year's start is one that would be not as wet as last year, it's looking to be such. As usual, with that warmer temp, we get rain.

    Hoping for a delay tomorrow though, We get that lovely first snow, then sleet and freezing rain, until it turns to all rain. Messy Tuesday coming up, for sure.

    Oh, and to the truck that was so close to me when we stopped, my you're too close back alarm kept going off. Grrr. And, always see a lazy driver. Little holes in the snow covered car to see out of. But thankful the commute was not as busy as usual.

    Lastly, Mac, older one did enjoy the WD last night. I was one, that while not watching that, did not watch the Grammys. Have no interest in who won.

    Ah, tea is here. Would like MonyK's breakfast, and Schumi's too. I need to get bacon, but I get it from the grocery store. Would enjoy it from a local farm, Schumi. Bet it's always lush. You can tell, I am not a vegetarian. Baby cheddar gold fish is my breakfast. I like the smaller ones better. Did pick up some oatmeal this week-end, so have to remind myself to bring it in. Up, more tea. Yep, need lots of it today. Almost cool inside.

    Haha, older one has a delay, but little one does not. Quick call of complaint got no sympathy.

    Hope your busy day goes quick, Patty, and wahoo, for your trip this week. Bet the idea of even 70's is a great motivator. LOL

    Finally, so sorry to hear about your extended family loss, MonyK. Cancer. I wish there was a cure for all, as I have known so many losses from it. Hugs.

    Welcome to Monday, all.

    Good morning all! Looks like we got a bit more snow overnight. More to come this afternoon. Doesn’t look like I’ll be going anywhere today. Doesn’t look like I’ll be getting out anywhere today. If the lane gets plowed I may try to get out to get a litre of milk for morning coffee! I’m down to a dribble. Enough for today. I’m cursing myself for not making that extra stop yesterday!
    Maybe bagel & creamcheese for my breakfast. Husband and dd are having oatmeal. For some reason I can’t tolerate. Gives me bad stomach pain.

    Husband taking snow blower out now! We are just not used to much snow! Morning news showed train station 2 mi from us with a queue going down the street! Yikes. Glad I don’t have to worry about getting out this morning for work!

    Yikes, Sue!!:eek: Sounds like a mess by your house!! Commuting in good weather can be stressful- add bad weather/poor visibility and it's dangerous!! Stay in and enjoy a warm drink- ration the milk!

    Work day is going by fast!! Having dinner later with my brother. He's in town from NJ visiting my mom. He's going to just LOVE our weather this week:sad2: We're going out to celebrate his birthday!!:bday:
