One of the really positive things about keeping and posting a blog is that I always (so far anyway) received positive and helpful comments from some of my blogger friends and followers. I want you all to know that I appreciate all of your comments and suggestions.
The past three weeks haven't been my best. I think a lot of it has to do with the cold I developed three weeks ago that I am just now getting over. It didn't help that just as I was in the middle of the worst of my cold I was called into work to work almost full-time to fill in for my co-worker who had a miscarriage.
Also it didn't help that the weather has generally been gray, rainy and dreary. Today was no exception. It sure would be nice to see the sun again. I see on my iPhone weather app that the sun will make an appearance tomorrow. At least we didn't get the four inches of snow (which is still on the ground!) my friend Larry got where he lives in upstate Delaware. Delaware isn't a big state so "upstate" is only about 90 miles as the crow flies from Casa Tipton-Kelly.
Tomorrow morning I have a dental appointment (two cavities - at my age? I don't have that many teeth left!) After the appointment Bill and I will take a ride to the Union Cemetery in Georgetown. I have FOUR Find a Grave requests to fulfill. One of my very favorite activities, roaming around graveyards (don't ask). Bill likes to check out the old headstones too.

Tonight I'm looking forward to the Republican debate in Florida. Mitt ("Mittens") Romney is going to "get tough" (this should be fun) with Newt. Talk about a Steel Cage Match. Mitt will be lucky if Newt doesn't hand him his head on a platter like he did Jon King at the CNN debate in South Carolina last Friday night.
Even though it was overcast and cloudy today with spritzes of rain, Bill was outside working on digging up wire grass from our expansive backyard. We may have another rough month to go but I do see spring on the horizon. It is less than three months until Bill and I make our annual Trip Down South.
Ah yes, always have something to look forward to and don't let the gray, cold, windy days of Winter get you down.
