I am rarely able to check in before going to work in the morning so can we create a "Good Evening All Thread"?

You just did Polly. Very Happy
A good evening thread will give us a chance to talk about what the weather really was like, not what was forecast and about how the plans we started the day with got changed.

It was windy and pretty chilly here all day. I didn't have any plans for today so anything I actually did was a bonus.....if you can call cleaning the kitchen and bathroom bonuses. Confused

Good idea Polly, between getting kids going and getting Mom up and myself ready for work I never have time to check in most mornings.

Well I don't know what the weather was like bc I was in a meat cooler most of the day, but what I saw of it was sunny. I worked till 5, then came in and checked on Mom, went to the Fall Fest at church. I left halfway through and came and put Mom to bed, went back and stayed till a little after 8. Had a huge turnout, it was fun. I will do a blog.

BBBRRRRR!!!!! It's -3 degrees here at the moment and frosty. All my bizzie lizzies have died in their hanging baskets so I'll have to take them all down and replant with something else. Such a pity as on Monday they were still looking good. Sad

Good evening all. Not much going on here. I have some jewelry to finish up for some orders and 1 repair. She sent it through the washer. We moved the old stove out, the new one is being delivered tomorrow before noon. You wouldn't believe how dirty it was under there. Before I went to work at Wally World I moved all appliances every 6 months and cleaned under them, now I am lucky if I get it done once a year. Oh well!!!!!!!!!!

It was hot here today. I do hope it will cool off soon. I have been pounding the keyboard all day. Another new book arrived for my review today, so I gotta read and then pound the keys again. There is one great thing about being an editor, ya get lots of free stuff for review.
I did get one more article done today about our City Park Botanical Garden, what Katrina did and how far it has come back. I'm not sure of pub date yet. I'll let you know if you wish.

Whoa, it was cooooooool here today. Barely reached 60 degrees and dipping down into the upper 30's tonight. Guess I had better clear out space in the back room for potted plants if this keeps up.

I was able to knit and listen to the audio tapes of Wicked by Gregory Maguire most of this afternoon since the cool wind gave me a headache everytime I tried to go out back to work.

Supposed to be rainy from late Friday night thru Thursday of next week. Just in time to mess with the NASCAR races over in the next county this week.

Good morning all. The cold front did indeed reach us last night. I had all the windows in the house open when we went to bed. Needless to say I woke up shivering. Windows are now closed. Today promises excitement - off to the optometrists office for new glasses. You will no longer need to be afraid when I am behind the wheel.

Good evening! It is getting dark already, seems I never get used to that happening in the fall. It's been raining all day, about 40 degrees - I'm so glad I got the last of my bulbs in yesterday before this weather came in. I've been helping my kids with homework most of the day... here's hoping for a little 'down time' later on.

How did I get my good morning in the good evening thread? That should tell you what kind of day this has been. I got to the optometrist's office this morning. He was one of those old old men whose belt is holding his pants up just under his arms. You've seen 'em. We were talking about insurance and he told me how much his daughter liked the same Medicare supplement I have. HIS DAUGHTER??? He did an eye exam with equipment he bought when he started practicing. I just wonder if I will be able to see through the glasses when they are made.

Good evening all. The new stove was delivered today. Richard got the plug changed from the old one to the new one, and it is in place. So I will be able to cook a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, as usual. I was at work all day, nothing exciting there. I might work on some more jewelry tonight, got all my orders caught up, except one.

Sad Had to give it a hefty thump before it would open. Rolling Eyes The garden and roofs of the houses are all white with frost and the pond is frozen solid. BBBBRRRRR
