Good morning! Yesterday was a short day. I got the mail, made a cheese omelet for breakfast, cleaned the house, explored Food & Drink on Win8, took the dogs out, & then my PC crashed so I spent the rest of the day crocheting my Star Trek Braided Mile-A-Minute Afghan. I still love how it's coming out. Yesterday's Sims game, although a short one due to the PC crash was Beechwood Victorian & my Sim Liz is just hanging out & enjoying life, waiting for her future rich husband to appear. :) This morning I took the dogs out & had to run an errand, then it was back home & I loaded up Centennial. My Sim Renesmee joined the culinary career & then learned the gardening skill which goes well w/ cooking. I'm still loving these temperatures! I had a fire in the fireplace again last night. :)
Casablanca's classic line, "Here's looking at you, kid," by Humphrey Bogart wasn't in the original script. Bogart said it to co-star Ingrid Bergman as he taught her poker between takes.
Establish a routine to signal your mind & body that it's time to rest. Try a cup of chamomile tea or a warm bath scented w/ lavender.
It's depressing & gloomy out there. Very depressing day. It's so depressing today I saw a robin in a singles bar trying to pick up a cat. -Johnny Carson 1982

What could be kinder than a friendly RE.minder?
Is your To-Do list app full of To-Didn’ts? You meant to get them all done but you forgot to check it in time. Maybe, instead of a to-do list, you need RE.minder!
