Survived the weekend!

     Stayed up to 11 Saturday night keeping watch, and got startled by tornado alarms going off at 10 pm, but thankfully there was only a little bit of flooding from the storm, as the worst parts passed by to the south.

     Today brought a BIG treat: the Towners took me out to Cracker Barrel for brunch/lunch to celebrate my birthday! It's my favorite restaurant, but there's only one left in Minnesota, and it's not that terribly close. It was wonderful--and sure makes up for the disappointment of realizing there's none in Oregon for me to visit on my August trip. Aaron came as well, and I got to give away some more bookmarks.

     A wonderful cheer-me-up amid the unfun of this weekend in the form of J Schroeder finishing Hope's Passage at last! =D
Where I'm At:
Back on my main pc!

Seems like you needed that extra special lunch after such a horror weekend! I really hope the weather gets better soon. Has it still been hot on top of it all?

It had been getting up to 28-29 C a lot of days, though it was the high dewpoint that made it really unpleasant. But now they're talking sunny days with highs around 24 C and much less humidity, which I sure hope is right! =)

Good to hear you are back on your PC. Is it running well?

Good to see you are getting some 70's days that will feel good.

I'm guessing this is Mama and you got logged out again?
It's running well, but I lost a lot of files that were very precious to me because of weird things happening with the backup (that I didn't discover until too late). At least I can get some stuff back off LJ or my work pc, but far from all of it.

Yes, the forecast sounds just wonderful! Sure hope they got it right.

I just wanted to say I got the bookmarks, Joelle. Thank you! I've got one for work and one for home now. *grin* (As long as my hubby doesn't steal one, that is. LOL)

Glad to see your PC is working again. I hope the weather clears up a bit for you in Minnesota. I'll certainly be glad when the 90+ degree weather goes away over here.

Wow, nice and fast! Enjoy =)

The weather is lovely right now--70's and low humidity. If only it'd stay that way for the next two months!

Hope you get a break from the heat. =P I don't like 90s at all.
