Good Morning:sunny:

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I love this time of year!

I'm busy with some paperwork that needs to get done before I can even think of doing anything else. I have my menu planned for the week and am making daily exercise a priority. I'll work on my yard sale stuff for next weekend and perhaps get a little sewing project done.

I noticed from the on plan thread that shelflife has graduated from med school. :congrat: What an accomplishment!

What's everyone up to today? This week? Stop by and say hello :cofdate:

Sunshine, warm breezes, loons, tulips in bloom, coffee on the deck! A great way to start the morning!

I hope everyone's day starts just as well and gets better.

Good morning!

We left the windows open all night last night - first time this year. It's pretty chilly in here this morning but we're just thinking of it as refreshing. LOL

Today is our son's 27th birthday. Where has the time gone? And how can Fergie and I be old enough to have children this old? :lol:

shelflife, Congratulations!

Enjoy your Monday, friends! :hug:

Hi, Ruth! Sounds fabulous!

Hi, Heidi! Happy Birthday to DS! I love open windows!

Yes - congrats, Shelf! This is my last week at work before vacation. Yesterday I packed my son's bag so that is all done. Just have to pack my own (DH will pack his own), check the toiletry bag to make sure we have what we need, get a pedicure (Thursday lunchtime), write out instructions for cat sitting and we are good to go. I'll spend this week tidying up details at work - I got a lot accomplished last week and feel good about it. Hope everyone has a great day-

Good morning everyone! Looking like the beginning of a beautiful day here too, I love it! It'll be a busy day at work today, so hoping to still find some time to get out and enjoy the weather, but we'll see how the day progresses.

Also, I enjoyed yesterday's 5K so much that I've caught the bug, lol. I've signed up for two more in upcoming weeks, including one in NYC, which I've always wanted to do!

Have a fantastic day everyone!

Congratulations to Shelflife and a Happy Birthday to your DS, Heidi!

Good morning :coffee2: The sun is out here too! What a nice way to start the week. Our team is only working two days this week to make up for all the overtime we put in the last month, it's today and Thursday for me then off on vacation all next week. Our cat sitter is also doing a thorough house cleaning while we are gone, can't ask for a better vacation than that :)

Happy sunny Monday friends!

Good morning!

I'm back to the gym with my mom today:) And then, I suppose, more appliance shopping. We are getting close to decisions now but need to order soon if we want delivery before the grad party Memorial Day weekend.

It is supposed to be in the 90s here today and tomorrow. Yikes.

Have a great Monday everyone. BBL

Good Morning!

Today is my first day on SB! Will be stocking pantry, etc today.

Excited, but nervous!

Have a great day everyone!

Wow, everyone sounds great for a Monday! Probably because it is SO BEAUTIFUL out there today! I'm hoping I have a short day so I can go out and enjoy nature for a few minutes in SILENCE.

Cyndi - what is that in the avatar? Beautiful!

good morning,

Its a lovely morning today but I wish I was as chirpy as everyone here. Although the food was on plan there was a little too much wine and chesse involved. Anyways, got a lovely mandevilla plant for Mother's Day, I hope I don't kill it.
Have a nice day, everyone
take care

Hello everyone! I was here about a year ago and decided to jump back in, hope you dont mind!
Good luck to you basketsbears, this is a great community!
Congratulations, shelflife, that's awesome!
A beautiful day here in central NY, first day of my week vacation, windows open... no big plans for the week, mostly spring cleaning. Some gardening... Maybe try to put some bags of clothes together for the salvation army, maybe shopping for some new ones :)
And definitely grocery shopping today! I hate grocery shopping on rainy days!

Enjoy your Monday, everyone!

Congrats Shelflife! I had a great Mother's Day. I ate chicken, corn, roast beef, banana pudding, cake and potatoes, yummy!

Good afternoon,

Congratulations to Shelf life that is a great accomplishment.

Sounds like everyone is having a wonderful day.

Got a lot accomplished this weekend, steam cleaned the carpets- started cleaning out the garage- got the porch touched up and looking good. Everything is slowly coming together.

Phase 1 today- so far so good but I can tell I needed it.

Have a great afternoon everyone. I am off in a couple of minutes to take DD1 to college physical so she can take her CNA class this summer, she got in from the waitlist, whewhoo.

It was a blackburnian warbler. There's a better picture (of course) at DW's website ( I switched to a northern parula this afternoon :) It's migration season so I'm in love with warblers.
