Nice Weather if You're a Duck...LOL

Thanks to Shelly for the cute little ducky tag!!!  And so appropriate for the weather here.  Actually, the whole northeast has been bombarded with water falling from the sky.  I'm still amazed that Tues was  a gorgeous day for Penny and me when we went to the festival.  Penny gets pretty much the same weather I do in her neck of the woods.  (LOL..Penny, I'm also going to need to cut back on my food consumption.  I will step on the scale Monday at work for motivation.  I know it wont' be good because everything I own is getting super tight.)

Yesterday was actually a gorgeous day also; sun and only a few puffy clouds.  Temps were only 80.  I spent the afternoon vacuuming the pool and skimming leaves out of it.  For some reason, it takes me a couple of weeks to get that pretty, sparkly-clean water.  With this type of weather, it will take longer.  One thing I need not worry about is topping the pool off with water.

I need to get a new mouse for my computer.  We go through those mice about every six months.  Drives me whacko when the mouse goes where it wants to.  I'm taking Becky's advice and getting one of those new fangled wireless, optical mouses that don't have the ball in them.  ROFL...try doing PSP with a mouse that won't cooperate.  Actually, it takes me forever to navigate anywhere when my mouse is doing its own thing.

I finally got my commands at work on Friday.  Now, I'm off and running.  Don't quite know where yet but I did process four awards.

As all of you know by now, Lisa Jo Damaged Goods is home from the hospital recuperating.  Keep LJ in your prayers, as she has many things on her mind in addition to her illness.

So, pretty much a quiet, wet day so far in the life of me.  Quiet is good.......

Smiles and hugs to all this Sunday!

I sure wish I had a pool to play in during the hot summer months.  You are so lucky!!  I've wanted a house with a pool my whole life.  My backyard isn't shaped right to put in a pool.  
I hope you get a mouse you like.  I have the optical mouse and I love it.  I wouldn't go back to the kind with a ball again!  I had trouble with a cordless keyboard and mouse though. I had to go back to the corded.  
Enjoy your Sunday today.  Back to work tomorrow...<sigh>

You can send some of that wet stuff out here to California!  I liked the pics of you and Penny in the previous entry.  Have a nice Sunday.

Chris, being in a pool sounds so good to me right about now!
The mouse I have is not wireless, but it doesn`t have a ball in the middle. I`ve had it forever and it`s still working well. LOL, I requested that same tag with the flip flops.
Love ya,
Penny

quack quack, we have had nice weather here too, but today Sunday it has been pouring all day. Which is ok. Grass needs water. LOL and my son didn't have to mow today.  I have one of those mouses without the ball. Thank heaven. I hated those other ones.  Drove me crazy.  I hope you get your pool going soon, I'll be over for a dip. Have a good day.

Oh my gosh Chris, the sky opened up this afternoon and it has been raining ever since her in Florida.  Some kind of low pressure or something just swirling around right over top of us. lol Hey, I talked to my BIL about your pond needing something to control the algae and he says he buys all his supplies at a place called Aquascapedesigns.com.......he says they have everything you need...worth checking out!  Hope you have a super fantastic week!  Hugs and GBU, Shelly

Talk about the sky opening up.  I don't know what is going on here in Virginia.  What I do know is that I got caught in it last night (Sunday) and it was not pretty.  I am grateful that I made it home okay.  I am happy to see that you are doing well also.  Keep us posted.  Hugs - Tish

Hi Love!  We are going through some storms here too.  Hail is a comin and I am nervous about my truck.  I still can't get over how cute those pics of you and Pen are.  If you are in the mood for another road trip in March come to the wedding, we will have a great party!

Yep, lotsa rain here in DE. Yeah, my laser mouse doesn't have a ball and that's why it's lasted so long I guess. I have a kitten now and don't think I'd ever buy the roller kind again.
Hugs,
