One of our son's just called from Paris, France to wish his dad a happy birthday. They are over there because our grandson who lives there is getting married next week in Denmark. About 1/2 hour later our grandson also called to wish his grandpa a happy birthday. How exciting. We sure wish we could be with them, but for health reasons we couldn't go. Can't wait to hear all about the trip and see all of the pictures.

Watching the news, just like I do every night. Hoping to get to bed early, I really need the extra sleep.

Fasting. Not a remarkable feat since we just finished dinner. I have to go for blood tests tomorrow morning in preparation for a medical appointment next Monday.

Fast has to be at least 12 hours. Dr. recommends 14. I'd rather go as soon as I get up then come home for breakfast.

LP, glad to hear it wasn't more serious. Hope the aches and pains go away soon.

JoAnn, what a nice surprise! Nothing better than having bday phone calls from the kids and grands, if they can't be with you. Happy birthday to your DH.

Katie...it's about time for me to take the master bath shower doors off for a good cleaning, too. I've been less than happy with what I've bought over the years, even though I clean them pretty regularly, too. Care to share what product you bought at Sam's that you're so happy with? I just bought a bottle of commercial Zep "All Around" at Home Depot, but haven't tried it yet.

As for what I'm doing, pretty much nothing. Listening to a past episode of "California's Gold" on PBS while I fiddle around on here and in the kitchen.
