Looks fine to me.

This isn't bad either, although I would place the arrow closer to the hand symbol for THERE like below:

The first two are fine for YOU LOVE, but the last sign is not the sign for ME and it would also need to have the raised eyebrows.

This is fine.

I would personally use a different sign for TODAY and I don't think I would use WEATHER for the sentence at all. SUNNY looks really complicated to read. I wonder if there is an easier spelling of it. Here is my try on the sentence.

The last sign is not what would be used for asking this type of question, and you also need to have the eyebrows down. I rewrote it below.

I would use a different hand symbol for HAIR and also not use the rims on the head symbols. Probably more my style of writing, but I just find it easier to read without the rims.

Looks good to me.

Not bad either.

The I is wrong here like it was for ME before in "Do you love me?" and WATCH used means to look after rather than to leisurely watch.
