Good morning everyone! Yes, I know, it is after 11 am here and much later everywhere else but after a rough night of coughing and kidney pain, I slept in.

But I woke up to bright sunshine and feeling much better. Who could ask for more!

I am going to do some baking today which is just the "icing on the cake"!

Good morning everyone! Its been a long time since I've been up early enough to say good MORNING. I was up super early for a day off. I've already had 2 cups of coffee, tidied the kitchen, got the water distiller running and started the laundry. I'm just waiting for all the folks to be out of the house before I attempt a workout and then I'm off for a coffee date with a friend. I'm sort of hoping I can convince her to go for sushi lunch instead. WOOT!

How's everyone around here lately?

Good Morning, Alix!

I'm kinda dopey and sleepy, but not hurting. Thinking I will be having a low key day.

Good morning Alix!

I am not usually up this early but I didn't get much sleep and after having some tea while TB had breakfast I was wide awake. Probably won't be for long though!

Have a great day.

Morning! Its overcast and dreary, but warmer than usual out there. I've been snuggled up with my cat watching "My Cat from Hell" on Animal Planet. Gotta say, I've only seen one TRULY nasty cat on that show. The rest of the cats were reacting to the human's treatment of them.

What's up for everyone today?

I'm scared to ask what critters might be in the fridge.

Morning all. I'm waiting for the garage door repair dudes to show up. They have 25 minutes before I start getting cranky.

I worked late last night, and then met a couple of friends for coffee afterward. Had some giggles, enjoyed the company and came home just before 200am. Garage door sticks halfway up. Grumble grump, BUT, not unexpected as sometimes the ice buildup inside the door makes it stick. I get out to go help the door up. Hmmmm, strange noise. I scoot under the door, leaving the van running on the driveway, and peer up at the gizmo to see if I can figure out what's wrong. Nope. I hit the button and help the door down since it clearly won't go up.

About that moment I realize that I am now inside the garage and the door is now down and the side door is frozen shut. Oops. The van is still running on the driveway, with my purse inside. Hmmm, this might be a BIT of a problem. I pull the emergency manual release handle thinking I can manually lift the door and then realize 1) there is no handle on my side of the door and 2) the door is pretty well coated in ice and I can't get a grip on it. Uh oh.

By now I'm seeing the humour in this situation, but it IS still 200am and I'm punchy I'm so tired. I try yanking the side door with all my might...nope. I finally manage to get the garage door up about 2 inches and get my fingers underneath and haul that sucker open. It moves pretty easily once you get it going...its just getting it GOING that is the issue. Van in garage, door shut manually, Alix snickering quietly up to the back door. Uh oh...I can hear the dog going mental inside. Add one cranky husband to list of boo boos for the night!

And now, I'm waiting. Maybe I'll nap while I wait.

ROFL!!! Nothing like making an entrance.

I had a safety lock engage when I would slam the kitchen door hard enough to close. I would get home @ 7 am and have to wake Shrek up to let me in...he was not happy! Luckily, duct tape fixed it.

I'm getting ready to go to the store...have to get Shrek moving, too. Don't want to sit around the house again all day.
