Sunny & Cheer

Ah hah! I fooled you! This post is not going to be about Sonny & Cher, but rather the beautiful day we are having in central Virginia and the cheer it brings out in me... Now be honest, how many of you read the title as Sonny & Cher? Remember that word game where all the letters in the words are jumbled up (except for the first and last) and how easy it was to read? I loved that...

Anyhow... The morning started out rainy and windy and kinda gloomy. I just got back from a few errands and had to put the top of my Sebring down once the thermometer hit 70. There is not a cloud in the sky now and it feels like Spring! I sit composing this on the deck with a nice cold Miller Lite (I am off today, Friday for most of you, but Sunday for me) hey... It's five o'clock somewhere! The sunshine and breeze makes me feel so good all over.

We got a beautiful Mexican painting from a friend of ours this morning so it gave me yet another reason to head over to the Williamsburg Pottery. They have a wonderful framing department and I also wanted to get an American flag and yard flag to celebrate the arrival of Spring (go groundhog)... That place was disappointing the first time I went, but I do like meandering through it now. There are always cool things to find like this silk flower arrangement I found for our kitchen table for $9.99 (vase included):


What happy bright colors to compliment the reds, yellows and oranges all ready accenting the room...

As I was taking and uploading the picture, an F-18 Super Hornet just buzzed the house, he/she couldn't have been more than a couple hundred feet above the trees, scared the crap out of me and the dogs...
Now, where was I? Oh, talking about Spring and feeling good and everything... How envious you in the mid-west must be. I think one of the reasons I haven't posted so regularly is that Winter had me "down"... I do like the cooler temps and frozen precipitation (we didn't get much of that this year) but, I do appreciate the sunshine and warmth that March brings to this area. Soon all the dogwoods and forsythia will start blooming, I already have some bulbs (planted in the Fall) starting to peek up out of the ground... I can't for the life of me remember what I planted though...
Otherwise, life is good for me and mine... My daughter (the baby) turns 19 this month, and after her visit with us last weekend I am hoping she will come down more often. I like her new boyfriend, he seems to work hard and know how to enjoy himself when it doesn't interfere. A pleasant change from the last one... Jim and I are doing well... He hates the cold, so a few days like today (it is Friday for him) should do for him, what it's done for me today.
I have cardiologist appointment next week, and hope that goes as well as my annual check-up went with my new Doctor (bad cholesterol was a little high so he upped my Lipitor dose)... My new doc also told me I needed to schedule a colonoscopy (I hate being over fifty)...
That's all for now my friends,
Over and "Out" from sunny and cheerful Toano, VA

Ah spring.....will the winter hasn't been toooooo bad, if one can excuse the freezing snap here in Kentucky that lasted 3 weeks.

I have finally moved the entirety of my life (possessions.....she got the lions.......or was the two lions share of our goods and chattles.....but it really make no never minds to me now) in with Geoff and I couldn't be happier.

My doc was thinking of upping my Lipitor but after my last visit he said there was no need for change (must be all that good (read in here CHEAP) red wine we consume.

Get that colonoscopy done soon, it's not all that bad anymore and we want a healthy you.

Did I mention that I hate you. It's been about cold as crap here all week and we had a full scale blizzard on Thursday. I am ready for warm weather.

Good luck with the appointments. I'm sure they'll go fine.

Those first days of spring are wonderful. How I remember them. Of course, here in Florida we don't have spring. We have two seasons: "summer" and "not-summer." We had a taste of "summer" the other day when temps went to an unseasonable 90 degrees. But we were back down in the 70s last night and today.
