It's a beautiful morning!

So how are you going to make the best of it?

My plan for today is to give my best to those around me, work hard and be productive. Share what I can of myself to educate others and be a listening ear to someone who may need it. Help to find solutions. Absorb what I can to further my mind power. Love my pets. Ride my bike.

Be thankful for what I have and for what I DON'T have.

Celebrate life.

Oh.......and revel in the fact that I was invited to Australia for the summer.

Perfect day here for being outside. Shoveled a few wheelbarrows of mulch in between some work stuff.

Not in Texas. We've already hit 100 and it looks like we'll get a break from that today... only 98. My plan is to work late so I can miss the worst heat of the afternoon.

It's dreary and wet and my plan for the morning is to crush my enemies into dust.

If it's wet, wouldn't that be mud and not dust?

It was a nice ride, but it isn't a beautiful morning here in the office. I really should have quit instead of messing with paternity leave.

Lovely weather today and I'm stuck in an air conditioned office with windows that do not open. I hate the sterile feeling of office buildings. I want fresh air!

Today was a great day! It's Mr.Cyclokitty's birthday and we went to our favourite Indian restaurant.

The weather was gorgeous -- sunny, breezy, but fresh and cool. Lovely for riding my bike to the grocery store and to the restaurant.

Much hand holding and mutterings of mushy lovey dovey stuff. I think we should celebrate birthdays more often.

Siu: Australia! That sounds like a great adventure!! I hope you share lots of pictures of your trip with us. I've always wanted to travel to Australia. Koalas are awesome.

Don't forget to learn something yourself.

We can't ever know it all. Be a happy sponge.
