Good Morning Everybody!!!! A Happy Wednesday to ALL!! I don’t believe it we are going to have 80 degrees here today, and this means that the SUN is going to come out some time today!!! I JUST KNOW IT!!!! tomorrow is going to be 78 degrees, and "Friday about 78 also, Saturday though they are calling for more RAIN SHOWERS!!! (Somebody just tell me WHY!!!!) Did somebody step on a frog or something? is this why Mother Nature is mad at Southern Maryland??? I don’t know what it was, but for some reason we are being hit pretty hard starting the beginning of last Month and Now most of this Month!!!! The ground is soaked, and now we have local flooding starting to appear everywhere!!! because where I lived there is nowhere else for the water to go!!! Oh!! Well I suppose there is the whole Chesapeake Bay!!! but seriously the water table level has to be over flowing!!! lol
I AM WISHING EVERYBODY TO HAVE A SUNSHINE DAY!!!!
Aloha y’all! ;)
Welll the baby bird is about the size they were last year when I started watching them. It’s about time he got some feathers growing. ;)
Good Morning Everybody!!! A Happy Thursday to ALL!!!! Yes!!! good wholesome SUNSHINE we are going to have 80 degrees here today!!!!
I am so happy to see the SUN my solar things in my yard and deck are going to be very happy indeed!!! lol I really do not know what I am going to do this weekend!!! I need to get my ladder out and measure two of my windows, they do not have a screen on the outside of them, the other three windows do, so I need to buy some prehung framed screens for them, but before I can do that, I need to be sure of the size first. It is a never ending battle to make sure everything is done, and working like it should in a house, it does not matter so much when you are renting, because you can just report it to your landlord or maintenance office in an apartment, but in your own home, you are the one that must pay for it, and make sure everything is running smoothly!! lol I do have central Air, but if I don’t need the AC on, then I want to be able to open all of my windows and not let the flying bugs or Mosquitoes have a free meal!!! lol I am wishing everybody to have a DYNAMITE DAY!!!!
Good Morning Everybody!!! IT’S FRIDAY!!!! IT’S FRIDAY!!!!! YES!!!!
I AM SO HAPPY THAT IT IS FRIDAY, AND THAT THERE IS NOT A CLOUD IN-SITE!!! 83 DEGREES HERE TODAY, AND 79 TOMORROW!!!! LOTS OF PURE GLORIOUS SUNSHINE!!! lol
I AM WISHING EVERYBODY TO HAVE A TERRIFIC DAY AND A SPECTACULAR WEEKEND!!!! lol
Not much to say; just wanted to check in. I wish things were livelier over here. ;)
Bookworm Jen Things could be livlier, but we have been deserted by the majority of our formerly regular posters. I do go over and read the posts at the new castle, but it takes so long to load that I really can’t post there often. ;)
I suppose that we still have lurkers. I do wish they would just pop in, if only to say “hello”. ;)
Anyway, I have some work to do, so I’m out for a bit. ;)
Hi Deanie! It’s been easier for me to post over there now that I have some time to spare, but I still have the loading issues too, so I tend to just catch up, write one post, and leave rather than sticking around to chat. Every refresh of the page takes a few minutes, so “real time” conversation doesn’t work too well for me there.
A bit earlier, I went back in the archives here to find the posts from last year around this time, when I was at LeakyCon. It made me feel sad to see how busy it was over here and how much more interaction there was. sigh I have to admit, I wish we’d return here. :(
Hello back at ya Lady Hawke !
Hello to Deanie and Bookworm Jen, my regular co-lurkers.
It is quiet here but maybe when JKR finally has her new book published (no idea if she’ll use a pen name) there’ll be some kind of activity. I am not sure if we’ll be able to go to HP world this year. Will the oil slick go all the way to the beaches in Florida?
I’ll be a-lurkin…
Hi Josie! Right now it’s looking like I won’t be going to the theme park this year either, but I’ll definitely be there in 2011 for LeakyCon. :)
I saw something on the news last night with Florida Chamber of Commerce people saying all of their tourist attractions are open and thriving, and that none have been affected by the spill. But with the way things are going, who knows how much longer that will be the case?!
I actually got some real work, as opposed to busy work, done today. I entered all of the CE that my licensees have taken so far into a spreadsheet. It sounds like busy work, but it will be a tremendous help this fall when renewals start. I would rather do that, because it affects my work, than help out my waaaaayyy behind co-workers with something that does not have any effect on forwarding my own area of responsibility.
I don’t mind helping them out, but it has become obvious that one of them did almost nothing in 2008 or 2009. I do rather object to doing someone else’s work if they can’t be bothered to even attempt it. ;)
Sorry, minor rant. ;)
Off to swing through my other sites and see what’s gong on. ;)
I am feeling very guilty now for not posting here for a while!
There was a lot more real conversation here, I agree. It also seems typical, that we moved because here was so unreliable, but it seems to have been problem free ever since.
Jen, I can’t believe LeakyCon was really a whole year ago! Wow!
(I promise I will post here more often….xx)
We will probably not get to Florida until sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2012 or 2013. I want to go once while all the Christmas decorations are up at Disney World.
We probably won’t get back east for an extended time for a few years once we retire to Oklahoma. ;)
Off to check elsewhere. ;)
Deanie, I don’t blame you for not wanting to do someone else’s work just because they didn’t. It’s one thing to help out someone who’s working hard and still struggling, but another all together to let someone get away with laziness! I’m glad you were able to get something helpful done; I hope it makes the fall smoother for you. I would love to go to Disney around Christmas time; my sister went this past year, and the pictures were beautiful – especially Cinderella’s castle!
Hi Asti! Don’t feel guilty; I’ve been sporadic too, since there hasn’t been much activity, but I’ve been figuring that if I just keep posting, more and more people might start popping in. You’re right about Leaky working much better since we left…I wonder if the load of all our posting here was part of what kept causing it to break?! I can’t believe it was a year ago either; I can remember it all so clearly. :)
I’m going to be heading out of work, but I’ll talk to you all soon.
Jen, I hope work was ok! And it’s not too long ’til next year. I just wish I could be there!
Asti, you should definitely try to come…let’s see, it’s about 14 months away, so if you were to start setting aside maybe 10-15 pounds (my keyboard doesn’t have the write symbol) a week, you’d probably have close to enough! How awesome would it be if you could find a way to make it work?! :D
I’m at work, so I’ll be lurking…
Oh Jen, I wish I could. But there is no way I could justify it without making it a big family holiday….. and it’s just not going to be possible. We are ok, but we’d need to save a lot more than £60 a month. It’s the dream of my DS to visit the US on a “fly drive” holiday. WHEN we do that, I will make sure we “drive” as close as possible to as many of you as possible. But I won’t be there next year.
Ugh, I just noticed my typo in my previous post, and it’s driving me crazy. I’m sure you can tell I meant “right” not “write.”
Asti, do they have a lottery in the UK? If so, maybe you guys could win in the next year, so you can all come on over! ;) Ah well, whenever you do visit, we’ll just have to have a reunion get-together at the theme park! :D
Ooooh, nice idea, Jen! (I noticed your typo, and knew it would bug you, lol!) Maybe I’ll start buying a lottery ticket each week, and having a little wish….. it’s worth a try!
Yay! :) If you win, it will definitely be a sign that you are meant to come!
I just got back from Borders, but I was very good – I only bought two books. They’re both young adult, as I continue trying to read as many as I can from the authors who will be at the YA event I’m attending during the ALA conference.
Counting down the minutes until the LOST finale…just over an hour to go!
Even though there’s a new poll, I’ll keep checking in here for another week or so, while people are still commenting on the actual poll question over at the new one. :)
Morning all! Just checking in to see if anyone had stopped by. Off to check the new poll now…
