Thanks Addie, I certainly will

Sitting here trying to motivate myself to go into work a bit early (doesn't look like it's gonna happen )

tomorrow starts a vacation, I had time that needed to be used up before the end of the year (4th quarter time off gets put out next week, so I'll have more to try to take). We are going away for a couple of days, spending a night in the mountains then heading to Charlotte, for shopping (kitchen stores for me!). It'll be a nice couple of days away from home, then home to chill and bake a bunch for the blog!

I'm trying to wake up. I'm on my first double espresso allongé and it hasn't kicked in yet. I have to get ready to go to the Danish Club luncheon. I also have print out name tags for all the attendees.

I'm sitting here pouting about the snow flying outside. I know it won't last but I'm irritated to see it so early anyway. I was sitting outside in capris on Saturday for goodness sakes! The birds are all poofed up like little puffballs, guess they're feeling the cold too.

Just went to my kitchen thinking I would like a spoonful of marmite since I was in the mood for something salty. I also wanted to put cream on my hands while I was there. Not thinking I opened the marmite, stuck in my fingers and proceeded to rub a blob of marmite on my hands lol!
The lights are on but nobody's home!

You can feel the seasons changing here too. Long sleeves and socks had to be added to the wardrobe yesterday.

Sitting wondering what to "attack" today. We were up at "oh-dark-hundred" to go to Glenn's final appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon after his knee replacement surgery last month. Yeah! He got a 100% on his exam. Both the surgeon and Glenn were all smiles. His knee is waaaaay more functional than it was before the surgery and some of his back pain has subsided, due certainly because he's walking more normally.

Glad he had such a good experience because I'm next in the hot seat in November when I have to have a knee replaced.

It's a beautiful day and I might do some "fall" decorating around the front porch and entryway. That won't take me very long, which means I'll still have plenty of the day left to do something.

I'm trying to get up the energy to get my day started but I have been trying to fight off a migraine for two days so am quietly sitting at the computer with a cup of ginger tea.

Sorry to hear that :( Migraines are nasty! Have you tried rubbing some peppermint oil on you temples? It really helps to relieve the pain and if you don't have the oil on hand steaming yourself with mint or drinking a cup of mint tea and inhaling the steam works too.
Hope you feel better soon!
