My kind of weather! We knew about the storms yesterday, but I don't think we were prepared for it being dark and rainy today.
As you know, it all depends on which weather channel you tune in. I can be reading one thing on weatherbug and my DIL can be reading something opposite on her phone.

I watch the Weather Channel on TV and they never mention Seattle except to say it rains. Although that puts a very skewed view of the city, it helps to keep the population in check lol.

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a really nice day.
It is pretty and sunny out.
I have 3 Oriental Lily bulbs that I got for my birthday. The box says, "Up to 10 blooms per bulb." It also says they can be grown in a pot. I think I am going to try this.

TM it looks like you have hit on a book that can provide a roadmap for successful aging by approaching the problems that come with it and taking a view for a more appealing life. There are so few books that really understand the elder years, which in today's world can stretch on for quite a long time.
And thank you for the inspirational compliment.
Hi Beat! Happy Sunday! You ARE welcome!

I'm glad you took it that way. I emailed it to my husband's friend who last year went through gastric bypass, has lost well over a hundred pounds and was in the hospital last week for an appendectomy asked me if I was telling him he was old. I hope he's not really vain.:-) I think he was kidding. I say it's never too early to start. I wish I had started taking better care of myself when I was younger, but you're never to old to start either.

I DO get a lift out of some of you. I'm impressed by the cheerfulness that some of you manage even when you're going through the rough patches life throws at us. It IS inspirational to me.

Good afternoon Murph!

Happy Birthday if I missed your birthday. Good luck growing your Lily. I wish I had a green thumb.

Thank you, Tribe. This sounds like a really good book. I will look for it.
I just checked out,"Grace More Than We Deserve Greater Than We Can Imagine" by Max Lucado. I have most of his books and have never read one that I didn't like, so I know I am going to like this one.
I hope you are your family are doing well.
We are pretty excited--we have two new baby boys coming. One is due June 10 and the other is due September 4.
Nevaeh is going to have a baby brother. She is pretty excited. SHe has been saying she wants a baby boy. She is already planning all the ways she is going to help her dad with the new baby. He told her early on that he is going to need her help and she has taken that very seriously. They just found out on Wednesday that it is a boy. Grandma is in Branson today, buying baby boy stuff.
Congratulations! I'm looking forward to having grandchildren one day. I'm hoping son #2 and his girlfriend will get serious, get married and bless me with a grandchild. I like her, his girlfriend. I can't say the same for every girl he's been with. Her mom is hoping for some grandchildren too. Maybe they'll get the hint.

It is going to be awesome having two little boys so close in age. I have a GS and GD who are 8 months apart and were inseparable. Until they got to high school and didn't speak to each other.
I have another GS and GD who are 8 days apart. They were very close, also.
I hope these new little cousins will be close.

DIL has been here working on centerpieces for the baby shower. So far she has made a 3 layer cake and a tractor--all made from diapers and receiving blankets. She saw this on Pinterest and volunteered to do them. They are adorable.

Good News! Makenzie has been out of the hospital for 2 days. She is resting a lot, eating well, walking and feeling good. First clinic visit is tomorrow, starting at 7 AM with labs, x-rays, and doctors.

It is 85 degrees right now. Over two thirds of my plants have been carried outside. We are suppoed to get snow flurries Thursday!
PLUS, my 8th grade GS has a field day to KC on Thursday, first to the meterologist station, then to a Royals game--he will be out in the weather the livelong day.

Good Morning All

GS won't care about the weayher. He'll have a good time anyway, but 85 degrees to snow is pretty crazy.

Murph I'm at my sister's and can't email, check your FB mail later on.
