    Cold here too with a high of 16! Laundry, vacuuming, but first I have to finish painting my laundry room. When we moved in 16 years ago, I wanted all of the rooms to be painted white and then I would decide as I was there as to the color I wanted. Finally getting to my laundry room and the border I found for it at least 10 years ago!! Can’t wait to get it up!!

    This is going to be a long week for me. My daughter goes to see her Nephrologist (kidney doctor), I am having surgery on Thursday. My idea of hello, is to get through this week smoothly. :)

    P.S. I am totally jealous of your 80* weather. I live in VA & it’s 29*. YIKES!

    To the above poster, Laura, Hello Baby is the best hello of the day! Congratulations!

    I am saying hello to snow, a lunch date with my husband and a few of my favorite stores.

    What book are you reading? I just started Water for Elephants. Can’t wait to read it..

  23. sunny says:

    hello to a day resting and recovering from the flu, making muffins, napping whenever the urge hits, selecting from among the ten library books on my “library shelf”, settling in for a long chat with mom, sipping some soup, and catching up on blogs. Not a bad day as the snow continues to fall outside my window.

    What book did you start to read?

  24. Trish says:

    what a great Monday post!

  25. Anne says:

    Hello to some much needed rain…even though I’d prefer the sunshine….the birds and grass and trees are happy.

    Hi Lisa, I’m saying hello to our new puppy who is such a joy. Chester is just the most amazingly laid-back boy, very affectionate and surprisingly obedient for his age. He weighs 9.6kg (not sure what that is in pounds) at 10weeks old, is beautifully proportioned (not fat) but is going to be a BIG dog! Yay… At the moment Sabah (our cat) is inside too, as we try to get them used to each other. Sabah needs to eat little and often because of his tummy problems so it is imperative we get him used to the dog so he will feel confident about coming in and out during the day! I’m exhausted mentally and emotionally from worrying about them both, but it is so worth it when I look into Chester’s beautiful dark brown eyes! Smiles…

  27. Rachel says:

    hello to little girl snuggles, fun times with a friend, hello to my cousin when we stopped in where he works for an oil change

  28. Sandra says:

    I love your Hello Mondays! Such a nice way to start the week!

    I think I’ll adopt them too!! (hope you don’t mind…)

    After all: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”!
