Friday indeed! At long last the weekend is nearly here!

Got those thunderstorms just before lunch that you sent our way Sister. Thanks for that. :p Passed in less than an hour though. Supposed to be cloudy the rest of the day and cooling off into the 40s, but it sure was nice to wake up this morning to 60 degrees. Weekend is supposed to be in the high 50s and sunny for the most part.

Hope everyone is making it through the week alright and that you all have a great weekend!

Hello! It's Saturday here in Blighty! I'm watching Firefly, spent last Saturday playing the Role Playing Game with friends in Birmingham (my wonderful boyfriend included) & we recorded bits of it for an upcoming "Sending a Wave" podcast... my 3rd appearance now, I think! Also heading to friends' tonight to play table top games - said friends also gave my man the Firefly board game for Christmas! Can't wait to get into that one again, soon!

So how's my Battalion buddies? Did you miss me?

Big love to you all ~Magda x x

Sister!! So wonderful to hear you're finally getting some good weather! I have moved up to Stoke-on-Trent which is colder than London, but I have a wonderful man in my life who is doing his best to keep me warm!

So glad you're still here! I haven't been into FFF.net for ages! I miss my Firefly Family!

Take care ~Meredith x

Hump Day. To those with Norse blood it is the All Father's Day, Odin's Day! Regardless of what you call it we are at the half way mark for the week.

The snow that all of the folks were making so much fuss about that was supposed to come today was nothing more than a pitiful flurry that lasted approximately 10 minutes, vanished, and was replaced by sunlight. Warmer weather on the way this weekend and the bike should be back from the shop today where it is getting inspected.

Mags! Good to see you on here love! You should try not to be a stranger. As a matter of fact, I'll go so far as to make that an order. ;)

FollowMal! Good to see you on here as well. The old site doesn't get the traffic she once did, but she's still flyin'. :)

Thor's Day! And a cold, windy one at that.

Bike is ready so it will be a cold ride home tonight, but that won't wipe the silly grin off of my face. :)

Got my copy of Leaves # 2 on the way home from work last night, along with Walking Dead #122, the only other comic I read anymore. At $3-$4 a piece it is just a tad too expensive a hobby for me now. Haven't read either of them yet. Waiting for the quiet weekend, where it is supposed to rain most of the day Saturday, to settle in with them.

Not so much here. Yesterday started with sleet on the way into work, which became snow around 9am that went on until 4pm. We got about 4-5 inches of snow on top of about an inch of ice. Not a pretty ride home last night. Sunny today, but only right around freezing. The sun is helping with the melting of the packed ice on the roads. No real slow down or negative side effects for me.

That being said I am SOOOOO ready for Spring. Day Light Savings coming up this Sunday will help by making the days longer. Not much longer now!

Sounds like good karma to me.

Wife is back in the U.S. She just got back into Fort Lauderdale from her Mission Ship cruise to Belize and Mexico where she joined a group of people headed down there to deliver relief supplies and funds to needy children. Very proud of her!

Yeah, was dragging all morning. Big Suck and Daylight Savings. Could be worse. There could have been Reavers. ;)

Great weather Saturday and Sunday! Enjoyed it and got in time on the bike. Nice enough today, but calling for rain and possible sleet Wednesday. Spring sure is taking her sweet time rolling around to the Commonwealth this year. Still, good things come to those that wait, no?

Hey Browncoat1…yep, does seem to be taking an inordinate amount of time for winter to get the heck OUTTA here. In TN we've had a few very nice days as well…but another cold front is heading our way. Such a tease.

Yesterday was gorgeous! 75 degrees and sunny. Made for a great ride home last night. Course today is supposed to be 77, but thunderstorms all afternoon. *sigh* The yard was just beginning to dry up from all the snow and rain.

Cold front? Yep, looks like temps drop back down into the low 40s tomorrow, but supposed to be in the 60s Saturday and sunny. I'll take what I can get at this point. LOL

Hope everyone is having a good week so far. Hump Day!

Thor's Day and Vikings on the same day? Coincidence? I think not! ;)

Bitterly cold today after rain most of the night. Constant cold wind with gusts of 30 mph is not helping and it feels like it is in the teens outside. Of course tomorrow it is supposed to be 63 and sunny. *shrugs* That's Virginia for you. Don't like the weather, just give it a minute and it will change. LOL

Got a new(er) bike I am itching to get in the saddle of as soon as the weather gets to be more Spring like. Pics soon.

No kidding. Got the Harley titled, tagged & insured Friday and got her on the road Saturday, only to have snow Sunday & Monday, rain all day yesterday and today. Screw you Winter! Bring on the Spring!

Supposed to finally dry up and be in the low 60s tomorrow and mid 60s Friday so should be able to get the bike on the road then.

Thanks Sister! Happy First Day of Spring! Sunny here today and supposed to be 62 degrees. Still damp from 4 days of snow, sleet and rain, but will be dry enough to ride tomorrow. Can't wait!

Fingers crossed for warm weather coming your way!

I am indeed! A bit cool this morning at 30 degrees, but I have cold weather gear to keep the last effects of winter at bay. Great ride into work this morning. Clear today and supposed to hit mid 60s. Going to be a beautiful ride home and I imagine I will find myself taking the long way home this afternoon.

Friday people! Drink 'em if you got 'em!

Yeah. Beautiful days Friday and Saturday with the mercury climbing up past 68 both days. Lots of sunshine and low humidity made it easy to get in the saddle and get some hours on the road. Got some yard work done and aired the house out.

Course, Sunday was a different story. Rained pretty much all day, some snow mixed in during the early afternoon, and stayed below 42 all day. *sighs* Now they are calling for rain wee hours of the morning tomorrow with snow likely, though it won't stay long due to the temp being called at mid 40s.

Sure am ready for Spring. Have some outdoor projects I want to get done, a deck that I need to get started on, and some much needed wind therapy.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Hope the fruit trees survive the freeze Sister. Got a bit of snow flurries here this morning, but luckily it did not stick. I will take Spring and pollen over the cold and damp any day.

So, who is planning on going to D*C this year?
