Up and at ’em

Could have done with a few more Zs before the craziness starts this afternoon. Central Standard Time? No likey. I’m accustomed to getting up at 5 a.m. every day, so you can imagine…

No matter, though. God made caffeine for a reason, and the weather’s going to be gorgeous in southwest MO today — another good day for driving. And tomorrow’s not looking too bad, either.

How’s the weather back home?

I love the weird angle of this drive-by photo (I was watching the road; it’s been cropped within an inch of its life — I spared you the great view of my passenger door frame):


Hey, happy Finkday! I’m sure my students are thrilled that I’m 700 miles away. Truth be told, I think we needed a “break from each other.” Heh.

Fink out (to I-44 again).

    I hope your weather is still nice where you are. We’re under a tornado watch until 10 tonight. We also have wind advisories – up to 50mph gusts expected! Ray’s wind chimes are driving me insane right now!

    Remember when we went up in the Arch on vacation with Mother and Dad? That was so cool.

    Hope you’re having a grand time, sweets! Love you!

      Yep Mave, the storms blew through, and now it’s gorgeous. Here’s a photo from my hotel window:

      I do remember going up in the arch! I recall feeling like I was in a giant egg…

      I hope you’re still earthbound! Keep me updated.

      I promise my eyes were on the road, Ma! (Which explains the horrible focus and angle…LOL)

      Whoa! I can strap it to my head! I am so getting one of those for the summer trip. Maybe I’ll wear it and go on this.

      Nah…on second thought. :P

      I’m on the way out for another 9-hour day on the road. Beautiful weather, so it should be fine. Looking forward to it! XO– hope you had another good time at Chamberlain last night! HA
