Beautiful sunny morning. About two weeks until our first trip of the year. The UPS truck was here around 10am and picked up the scanner going back to Amazon, the new one should be here tomorrow. We got ready and headed out to pick up the brush Bonnie pulled out of the flower beds and some of the branches around the yard. On the way out I grabbed the window screen for Bonnie's window and put it in. We got busy picking up the brush.

Its raining, has been since before I got up, not hard but steady. The forecast is for rain until this afternoon. Thats ok we are headed to Batavia. I have a dermatologist appointment for a routine check. Then we are having lunch with our friends Bob and Caroline, they just bought a new Honda CR-V to tow. We also need to go to Walmart to return the battery and then to TOPS for gas as Bonnie has earned 60 cents a gallon savings. We are also on standby to pick up our GD after a track meet (I hope the rain stops by then).
Well it rained all the way up to Batavia. I was in and out of the DR pretty quick. She froze a few spots near my eye, on my cheek, and on top of my head. Still raining when we left. Then we headed to the Sweet Ecstasy Bakery and Bistro to meet our friends for lunch. This was located in one of the oldest buildings in Batavia. It was a bank at one time and then used as the home of the Batavia Club, a mens club. The food and ambiance was really good. Caroline also brought me a gift of some pastry like desserts that I had admired in her blog some time back.
After lunch we went over to Tops and fueled up, then over to Walmart to turn in the battery and pick up some oil to change the oil in the house generator. Then a quick stop at BJs to pick up a new card. We then beat feet toward Elizabeth's to pick up Alexus. She came home after school and needed a ride back to a track meet. She called when we were halfway there and decided she was going to be to late for her event. So we slowed down and headed home.
We carried in the groceries and took out the trash for tomorrows pick up. While we were out FedEx delivered my replacement scanner.

Early morning tomorrow so I am off to bed. Bill is coming to cut the maple tree down and turn it into fire wood.
Up at 7am and had some oatmeal and coffee. Looked out and its snowing.
|Snow in the air mixed with rain|

I got a call, a friend needed help with his Yahoo mail account. Once in the house I got dry clothes on and called him back. It took about 30 minutes but we got everything reset and working.
Hot coffee and soup for lunch but I am still chilled. Guess we will watch Deadliest Catch and try to warm up. After I count out my medicine for the next month.
|All set for a few weeks|
Bonnie made baked chicken wings for supper an they were really good. The oven warmed up the house and I am nice and toasty again. The snow and rain stopped and the sun actually came out for a few minutes and we had blue skies. I did go out to the coach and put the valances back up in the bedroom. I think we will order the shades from MCD tomorrow and then have them delivered to us at the Escapade.
Time now to post this and relax a bit.
