No sun either so dreary day. No plans so will hunker down and read and watch tv. Tomorrow going for dim sen with brother and lady friend. She is from Hong Kong and will speak to the staff for us. It is a totally Chinese place and we do not understand a thing they say. LOL
Probably watch some football this weekend. Not sure when who is playing . Om or Iz...when is the Vikings playing?
Piggles....how is Elaine doing now? I do not like what I am hearing and am embarrassed that my profession allowed this to happen to her.
Kare....good celebrations.....makes the birthday last longer. Hope to go out on next sunday with family but they are all so busy at this time of year. Will see.
Erri....new truck and RV all settled at your place? Is your SIL settled too?

Ours is 20C at night and 21C sometimes a bit more in the day ....

So..68-70F but we have a gas fireplace that always seems to be on and that really warms the lower level in particular. We like upstairs cool and as I said have our window open at night too.

Yes, it’s shoddy care for Elaine and not right. An all too common story..

Enjoy Chinese tomorrow Udi! Yum yum

Good Morning

Looks like it's going to be nice out today 47 or so maybe more snow will melt

Udi - too bad you didn't take the picture I would have loved to see that LOL

Iz - What day do you actually leave I am confused do you leave Wed.??? Hope you get your packing done this weekend.

Kare - Wow you sure are having a lot of Bday dinners - sounds like fun

Nothing much going on around here my life is very boring - Charlie called me last night he wants to go on Carnival Horizon the end of May - I don't know if I really want to do that cruise I would rather go in Nov. out of Fl. on a 14 day cruise - and go to NC for a couple of weeks in May and stay with Rich but we will see what happens.

I think the Vikes play around 5:30/6:30.

We fly to Florida on Thursday. We are going to breakfast with Udi and Pinky Friday morning and then we board Silhouette.

I have laundry going and will work on more packing too.

We are going up to 40 again today and upper 30's tomorrow. The snow isn't arriving until over night Sunday into Monday and all day Monday now. We could get a substantial amount. But I guess the storm is still in pacific and they can't get a good track until it's over the Rockies.

Most of the time my thermostat is set at 61, in the evening if I feel chilly I bump it up to 64 for awhile. Now since since it has been so warm the past couple days maybe it isn't cooling off upstairs, because last night I didn't sleep well at all because it was too hot

My fireplace is broken, so I haven't been able to use for the past couple years. I thought it was just the switch, but a while back I switched it out with a switch that does work and I still couldn't get it to light

All your dinners sound fun. Tonight we're making home made pizza.

Oeggy, isn't the Horizon expensive? It is for the Caribbean sailings I was looking at for early 2020. Plus I don't like that class, way too crowded. So I don't plan on sailing Vista class anymore. There are way too many other ships I do like.

I've been trying to figure out if I should book something while on the Silhouette, since if our cruises pan out the way I have planned I wouldn't have anything to book until we are on Edge in a year. But I think I found something to book incase the LA to Santiago cruise doesn't happen. In October 2019 Equinox has a 10 night sailing that goes to Grand Cayman, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and Key West. After the next cruise the Equinox will be the only S class we haven't been on

But I'm really hoping we can do the LA to Santiago in December 2019.

Yes, I don't think San Juan is shape for precruise nights. Is the air part of an Oceana package deal? When we sailed out of San Juan, even before the hurricane I didn't want to do a precruise night there. So I found a flight on US Air, when it still existed, that left here in the afternoon and had an 8-9 hour layover in Charlotte. So I booked a night in an airport hotel and packed what we would need in our carry ons. I just don't find sailing from San Juan appealing.

In April 2019 and 2020 I plan on flying day off, but that will be on nonstop flights. We're flying day of to the Bliss with a connection in Denver, but the ship doesn't sail until 1AM or later and we could easily catch it the next day if needed.

I'm rambling, better hit submit before this all goes poof. I'll be around all weekend and will be back.

Online check in opened for our Disney cruise. I got reservations for both Palo and Remy, also signed up for tequila/margarita tasting and an excursion to Jost Van Dyke when we're in Tortola

I have most of the packing done. I have a few more things to add to the garment bag. The suitcase is 47 pounds, so that one is ready.

I should probably go to bed soon. I'll be around all day tomorrow.
