Re: Really enjoying ER today...........................

Got up this morning, went outside to enjoy a sunny, mild spring morning. Stared at the geese drifting by on the lake. Watched a crane catch some breakfast. Saw a few more geese fly directly overhead. The moist grass still damp with morning dew. Ah, that's the life.

Then I remembered I was just walking from the house to the car. I had to hurry and drop the baby off at daycare then go to work.

Maybe I'll get in a nice lakeside dinner at sunset tonight, since it gets dark an hour later now

Nice setup, but I'll pass.

We have sun today after what seems like a month of rain.

Same here, sunny and blue sky after a mid-day clearing yesterday. Finally got to cut my tiny bit of lawn for the first time in almost a month. Gabe is similarly pleased with the warmer, dry weather. He now gets to resume his job of wandering the cul de sac, checking everyones wheels and tires.

Re: Really enjoying ER today...........................

We had 11 inches of snow today but it turned to rain and it all melted like crazy. My sump pump went out and I bailed water until DW could get a new pump. All is well now and the basement is safe but is was a sphinter factor of 9.9 for a while.

This weekend it is supposed to hit near 70. Gotta love Spring in the intermountain West.

Good for you not getting trapped by the bigger house and the new cars. You will get to retirement before you know it!

I will have to go into work Monday and let them know how good we really have it. I hope that they get it fixed quickly for your sake. Popsicles eh!

My job is kinda like that. I work on a dock with 3 big windows over the lake. I can see birds and fish from my office and sometimes if the payroll clerk isn't in the company cat comes to visit. We even have beavers that live at work. I like the king fisher birds, one was sitting on the maple tree with a little fish crossways in his beak flopping one day. This week the Canadian Geese are back. If I don't want to be indoors I can step out the door and look into the water and see crayfish or little fish or I can go walk on the dock and look at the ships.
But I still want to retire.

Re: Really enjoying ER today...........................

We spent a fabulously relaxing weekend with our friends at their cottage on Edisto (one of the sea islands). Alas, I was the only one who didn't need to go back to work on Monday, so we all had to leave Sunday afternoon* At least I brought home severl pounds of sweet local shrimp and invited a few people over for shrimp & grits tonight (and green beans and salad and wine)...mmm.
