Kellie, it took me a few moments to understand that you were not afraid of snacks, LOL!!! But sinner time definitely was the best ever!!!

Donna, I don't do well in the forest fire smoke when it blows through - but I tried a little walk at midday, when it was about 92 out there. Yeah, not good. The problem is there aren't many green shady places - and cacti don't provide much shade at all. This is definitely desert, and I'm learning I'm not a desert creature!

Jamir, the tarantula was scary, but living on St Thomas meant lots of creepy crawlies. And I really didn't want to crash my car. So I drove into the first parking lot I saw, and found someone to deal with the tarantula. Didn't know what else to do.

Gotta get to bed early again tonight, folks. 5am wakeup tomorrow to be at work at 6 am. It's for fun, though; my company is hosting a Bike to Work Day pit stop, and I'm one of the volunteers since I can't bike. And, paid volunteer time is one of our benefits, so isn't that great! Will catch up on everyone's posts and blogs tomorrow.

Sleep well!

Ah gotta love the typos. I chuckled at yours Donna and then I noticed I said snack instead of snake.

I feel a smidge better today. Antibiotics are kicking in. I'm still working from home. Nap time after this conference call. Good thing I don't need to talk much on these calls!

Tarantula across the foot??? Oh NO! I would have crashed. I hear that old Jim Stafford song in my head.... "I don't like spiders and snakes.."

Can't wait to see the furnished room Maree!

Morning everyone! Maree, love the clean refreshed living space. I am sure you are quite excited to see the final outcome. I hope it is exactly what you had imagined. Itís so hard with so many choices.

Bess, enjoy your weekend

Toni, thinking about you and your arrival in France.

Econolady yeah for a good nights sleep. I am also with you are any animal or insect in my car. If they are there I am not!

Nell, it seems so wrong to me that you have to pay so much for the previous installers mistake. I hope everything is done properly now.

Have a good day Jamir. It seems a very busy week for you.

Kelli, I hope your cold is diminishing. It sounds like it was a pretty bad one.

Phebess, you will be happy to be heading north soon. That heat in the desert can be quite oppressive at this time of year. Usually the locals are looking for someplace cooler to travel too. It is actually quite pleasant here. They keep talking about rain but there hasnít been too bad. In fact we need more to help with the forest fires. Yes that danger has a,ready begun.

Finally I got my deck cleaned and flowers planted. Now this morning all I have to do is move the furniture and lay the carpet. Voila, we are ready foe summer. I got way over my step goal yesterday and I paid for it last night. This knee appointment canít come to soon for me.

Have a great day everyone!!

PS. Maree, I had to chuckle about your comment about the typos. Sometimes I think self correct should be banned. It does make for interesting comments sometimes. emoticon

New furniture is so exciting!! And you don't even have to put it together!

The air conditioning is fixed, all together it cost me $2300 because the original installer 4 years ago didn't know what they were doing.

Lots of small things to do today.

Love the blank slate Maree.

We had a beautiful drive to the mountains and have a nice room just miles from the festival. Met some interesting people. Hustling to get breakfast and make it to the opening session by 8

Wishing all a great day

Here's the blank slate! Carpet shampoo'd and ready for furniture delivery. Exciting! When they call and tell me they are on the way, I'll leave work and come home.

Rushing around this morning preparing house for the cleaning lady. Then crossfit, making my lunch ( although I may be home with furniture and decorator coming).

Sending healing vibes to Kellie and Econlady, giggling at typo's, wishing safe travels to Toni and Bess, crossing fingers for Nell's son and in general, hoping all have a great day!!
