Hi team,
Nell, I'm glad you have tech support in the family!
Econ, that sounds like a nasty fall. I hope you're OK. That cookie IS fabulous!

One more step made toward getting our document out the door today. Tomorrow I work from home. The maids and pest guy are coming to the house.

Looks like I might have lights out on time tonight. Sleep well!

Helloooooo! that cookie is amazing!

Sending safe vibes to everyone affected by the hurricane.

This week has been draining indeed Jamirblaze. Learning new routines, programs etc, getting used to the downtown office AND keeping up with my current work has been a challenge. I'm so ready for a weekend of nothing. I'm on call but it's usually not too bad.

Happy Scooby Doo day! I worked at lessons learned from scooby doo to manage my stress... dance, laugh, face fears head on and don't hate yourself for eating, even if you eat junk food. It all kept me cool and on track for the most part!

I wonít eat the cookie. I donít eat Cookies very often. When I was going to dinner today I tripped and fell on the pavement. I hit my chin and front of my head. I was right in front of the place I was going so I sat down, ate dinner and got my bearings. Th owners were very nice. Tomorrow Iíll post some cookies.

I'm on my tablet. My computer got a fatal virus, my nephew erased it, reloaded windows 10, and now Carbonite is downloading my files. It might take 2 days, though, I have a lot of files. Thank God I have Darren! When that's done I have to download all my programs and hope I have the million passwords I'll need .

Good morning all,
I sure hope you got back to sleep Maree. Your days start early enough.
Enjoy your day with DaPrincess Bess. Every second we have with the grandchildren is precious.
Toni, I can remember when I bought catsup in the huge can. Now we are lucky to use a bottle in a year.
Econolady that is an intricate cookie. It would be a shame to eat it. You are very talented!
Jamir, I hope you stay safe from the Hurricanes. They sure are packing a lunch this year.
Phebess, I think this is great weather for walking as long as the rain stays away. It is getting to be soup time isnít it. I am planning on going to the produce market today and I think a butternut squash soup will be on the agenda. Maybe a little Brie for excitement.
Nit sure if I told you thst hubby came home yesterday afternoon. He is doing pretty good and I am a busy girl. I will have my hands full for awhile but st least we are going in the right direction.

Happy Friday Eve! It cannot come fast enough. This has been a draining week.

So happy that Florence has died down some. Still worried about the rains for the folks hit and storm surge. Hoping everyone stays dry. Isaac's scheduled to turn toward the Gulf early next week as a depression. The Gulf is shallow and warm and can strengthen storms, so I'm still keeping an eye on him.

Donna - Hope that your DH improves enough to come home soon!

Econlady - Impressive work!

I'm feeling behind today. I got a lot done yesterday, but never feels like enough sometimes. I've blocked myself off some time tomorrow - hope between what non-scheduled time that I have today and that time tomorrow that I can get back on track.

Have a great day, all!

Nice news about lessening of stormís strength this morning. Flooding seems inevitable though.

In prep for the storm I cleaned out my cupboards. I swear I do this often and yet, and yet...I found a ketchup bottle with a 2015 expiration date on it. Well, things are leaner in the cupboard and Iíve learned that ketchup isnít much of a Ďstapleí in our house if I havenít needed it since before 2015!

Bess, enjoy daprincess! Fun for son and dad to work on that kitchen. I love seeing generational projects. So true about the ďpriceĒ of beach property on the Carolina coast. Love visiting there and renting. Owning would have to be worrisome.
Donna, sending prayers and good thoughts to you and your DH.
Econ, such patience as well as color in that cookie. I admire your steady and artistic hand.
Maree, hope you get the productive day you are looking for.
Donna, I lived carless in DC for several years and enjoyed it. Best shape of my life with all the walking.

Haircut for me today and a trip to the lake. We need to raise our lift to make sure the boat doesnít float away. No immediate danger. Maybe I look into my cupboards there as well. No telling what fossils I might find...

Iím exhausted. Iím on a crazy schedule in Indianapolis, but still on California time when I try to sleep. I think if it wasnít for my anti-anxiety meds I wouldnít sleep at all. Here is the cookie I made in class yesterday. Yes we spent 8 hours on one cookie.

Good morning. I'm so glad we will avoid the brunt of Florence, it's going to be horrifying for those near the Carolina coast. We'll probably get rain next week from the storm, but not the winds.

I have a condo board meeting tonight, there is a long agenda, and there will be a lot of people unhappy with the electrical problems last week and the ongoing leaks in the air conditioning. They'll be REALLY unhappy when they see the bills.

Stay safe today everyone!

Donna - I too am sending all the healing prayers I can for your DH. He has had enough - it's his turn for a good health year.
Phebess - Good soup is so comforting - I will be glad when we get some cool weather and soup will be fun to make again
Poindextra - glad to hear from you - understand about being busy
Kellie - procrastination has always been my worst enemy
Jamirblaze - fingers crossed that Isaac just peters out
Nell - It not only stopped raining down here - it got downright sunny
Shout-outs to the rest of the team

I'm off to babysit Da Pwincess this morning - mostly through her nap - while the kids work on assembling their kitchen. DH and I are going in together and I just bet he'll stop by their new place to lend a hand. Looks like we've dodged this storm - or at least its winds. But just in case - we have supplies for any power outages. Prayers are needed for the NC folks. Our cousins in Emerald Isle have evacuated to Grandma's house in Richmond. That's the price you pay for a beach house.

Believe it
Do it
Become it

Good morning!

I'm up too early, drinking hot tea and watching the weather channel. Florence is going to be one for the record books, but wind speeds are downgraded. Some friends who work for the power company here are already heading east to help with the outages. Hope all your preparations get you through it safe and sound.

I'll be traveling today. And I won't have so many meetings and calls so hopefully it will be a productive day.

Dermatologist froze a spot on my nose yesterday, otherwise all is good.

Donna, hope your husband continues to improve; prayers for good care and healing.

I'm going to try to get back to sleep. Then crossfit. Hope all have a great day!!
