Good afternoon from snowy Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA. I noticed it snowing about an hour ago. No accumulation yet. It's melting on contact. It's a wonderful April Fool's Day joke Mother Nature is playing today. Today has been good. I'm thankful for the nap I got this morning. I got up at 2 this morning. I really hoped to sleep longer. Didn't happen. The nap felt good. I'm thankful I was on hand when one guy here packed up the hardcover books in the community room. He's taking them to the Vets Administration. I'm thankful for the work I did on New Horizons Predators and Terrorists. I'm thankful I could be here with you today. You're a huge part of my day. I have the notifications done twice. Okay, that's my day. I have most of my steps done. I'll walk through the building one more time and work out on the foot cycle. What are you thankful for today? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. My door.

Yes, she is. She's continuing with her joking around by dropping a foot of snow between today and tomorrow. It's raining right now and will turn to snow as the temperatures drop.

I can tell you what I'm NOT thankful for... April Fool's. It is so hard to know what posts on social media are real or not. I wish this stupid day would never happen again. I am thankful for a good night's sleep. A number of days a week I wake up early and take two hours to get back to sleep and am exhausted for the rest of the day. Then I get a good night's sleep like last night to make up for it... and then the cycle starts all over again. I have been using a twister board for exercise since I started intermittent fasting. I ordered a new one last night and it arrived today. Now I know how badly damaged my old one was. Loving the smoothness of my new twister board.

Now, that's a good way to get exercise. Have fun. I'm glad myLot didn't join in that kind of fun yesterday. I've seen those sites where even my name didn't read like my name.

I'm glad you have the wheels in motion for the transfer to the other rehab facility. Thank you. I'm glad you like the door. The sign under the door hanger someone put there. I found it Easter morning.

I have been taking longer naps during day time in the last few days since I returned from my vacation. I am feeling relaxed and enjoying my summer vacation. I am grateful to have a good time with my family in the last two weeks of vacation. My elder daughter could also join us for the vacation to Phuket.

Sounds like Mother Nature is having a bit of fun with the April snow in Green Bay! Hope that nap helped recharge you after a rough start to the morning. That's fantastic that you helped pack up books for the VA - such a kind gesture. "New Horizons Predators and Terrorists" sounds like an intriguing project, is it something you're reading or writing? Always a pleasure to connect with you too!Looking forward to hearing more about your foot cycle workout – is it a special machine or an exercise routine?

New Horizons is a book project I'm working on. This one is finished. It will be a series, so I read it over to edit it and get the details organized for the next book in the series. Yes, Mother Nature is having fun here. It was fun to help with the books as he packed them. I saw him today and he's already taken them to the VA. The foot cycle is a manual pedal. I'll try to find a picture of it.

@Heartyy I never give away spoilers. New Horizons Predators and Terrorists is about a plane that starts out from New York's JFK airport with a destination of Buenos Aires, Argentina. However, it never arrives. Instead, it goes through a wormhole to another galaxy with no way to return. The planet has predators that kill instantly, and terrorists who want to get rid of new arrivals. I'm planning a ten-book series. They all start on Earth and end up on that planet. I named the planet Alia.

@just4him That's awesome you helped pack up the books for the VA, such a generous thing to do! Did they mention how many books were being donated? Also, a finished book project is exciting – is there anything you can share about the plot of 'New Horizons Predators and Terrorists' without giving away spoilers?
