Good Tuesday Morning 03/08/05

  1. Can you believe that one week of March is already gone and spring will officially be here soon? Of course, it is supposed to be in the 70s here all week and sunny.

    And I managed to last the full five days without the computer, only used cell phone once for directions only. So nice and peaceful around here..........

    Have any of you tried using that Magic Bullet blender? Mine arrived two weeks ago and it makes the best smoothie type drinks or ice cream with frozen fruit and either cream or half and half, just throw in two packets of Splenda with everything, and yumyum...................quite addicting. Had one almost every day that I was off...................

    Went to Sequoia National Park over the weekend and they had snow up there. Held my first snow ball in over 2 1/2 years............quite strange, but at least I didn't have to shovel any of it............beautiful sunny day...stopped at a lovely restaurant on the way back for lunch, on the side of a river where you could eat outside and listen to the water hit the rocks..

    Glad to hear you had a relaxing time! I LOVE the Sequoia and Yosemite areas, they are SOOOOOOO gorgeous! Being at either place refreshes the soul.

    Hmmmmm, Magic Bullet, eh? I'll have to check it out. Sounds like MMMMMmmmmm - Good!

    Kids were out of school (teacher inservice) today, so dh and I played hookey from work and took them and another friend to Disneyland. I got a few pictures of the flowers there (which are usually beautiful!!). Now I have to figure out how to transfer them from my PDA to the computer . . .
    It was a beautiful day, temps in the 70's with a cool breeze, and the park wasn't too crowded. I read a little in my book (here 'n there), and just chilled, sometimes watching ppl, sometimes just admiring the greenery and flowers. The kids ran around together. After we met up and left, they told us about a new ride in Tomorrowland they'd been privileged to preview, as well as a new attraction in the same area: a talking trash can! Now I have to go back and see these things, as I never set foot in Tomorrowland the whole "live-long day!" Oh, and they said Space Mountain wouldn't be open till November (they apparently interrogated some of the cast members).

    Youngest will be 14 day after tomorrow, on the 9th. They just grow up TOO fast!

    Hope Tuesday is good for each of us, in some small (or great!) way. Thinking of you, all. -- D

    good morning :melody:

    suzanne, wa! proud of you managing to stay away from the computer/cell phone that long!!
    my dh wants that magic bullet blender because of the commercials - probably a good thing i haven't seen them, or we'd probably be getting one - and the last thing we need is another blender.
    your trip to sequoia sounds so great. i've never been there - maybe some day.

    dianah, must be nice to live so close to disneyland. sounds like you had a good time. happy b-day to your youngest.

    anna, have you started packing yet? can only imagine how excited you must be. hope you have good weather for your trip.

    lilgirl, hey! congratulations! :hatparty: on those grades!! way to go!!

    dh seems to be coming down with that dang 'cold' that is going around. hoping he doesn't spread the joy!
    i have to spend most of today catching up on paperwork for the person i take care of as a 2nd job. feel bad that i've been too busy and haven't had a chance to get there before now. will also resign at the same time.
    going to go have a beer and catch up on my reading. see y'all later -
