    Re: Newbies Nest

    OMG! HI Nest!! This is the first time I've had an empty space (home or camper) for weeks! I'm alone and loving the quiet. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, but look forward to reading back and reconnecting. Lots going on here; I hope everyone has been well on their end. No drinking here... 2 years and 7 months sober today, and never happier about that decision!

    Hugs to all.
    Kensho

    Done. Moving on to life.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    Kensho, great to see you checking in & sounding so good. Congrats on your AF time, it is the best

    LC, you are now working in a vegan kitchen - good for you! Tell me what dish is most popular & I’ll try to replicate it for myself. I often make a vegan entree that my husband uses as a side dish to his meat selection.He just HAS to have the meat, I give up, haha!! Isn’t it great when you can automatically walk past the booze because you know the harm it will bring? It definitely gets easier & easier as time goes on too

    Had a mostly non-productive day but I receive a request from a friend for a shopping cart handle wrap. She sent me a video with instructions for making these fabric washable wraps that you attach to thehande of your cart with velcro closures to keep your hands Germ free while you shop. I think I will make a bunch as soon as I get the right size velcro. Such excitement, Lol

    Hello to all & wishing a safe night in the nest for everyone!

    Hi, All:

    Lav, YOU should have a roadside stand and sell all of those delicious loaves and sewing creations. Wait, you do that. Well, you sell creations. I like the vegan side dish - haha. My husband is willing to eat meatless meals, but I think he'd go on strike if it was forever. That story is so tragic, Lav. So sad.

    Kensho - been thinking about your LONG roadtrip. Hope it is going well!

    Mr. G, I'm jealous of those beach runs. I swim here even though the water is usually around 50 - 55 degrees (brrrr). Once you get through the pain it is actually quite fun. I don't do it very often, though...

    Happy SOBER Sunday, all.

    Pav

    Hi Nesters!
    Happy Un-hung Monday!
    Not a whole heck of a lot going on here today. Made it to the gym, did some laundry, read a bit. I'm reading a great book from a few years ago called, H is for Hawk. Have been wanting to read it since I bought it back then and now I seem to have the concentration needed! Yay!

    Lav, I've been working in a vegetarian kitchen for the past 13 years and we decided to change to vegan last year, mostly for climate reasons.. my boss has been focussing on climate change the past few years so we decided the kitchen should back the message.. it was challenging, but fun! Now, since I won't be working until January, I'm just cooking for myself in the most simple way.. not thinking about work at all! I know a lot of people who don't think a meal's a meal unless there's meat.. I always used to try to convince them to change. We all know how that goes!! I'm way more inspired by fresh veggies than I am by meat, so for me it's actually easier. I love the idea of shopping cart handle wraps! Very cool.. it seems like this will all be going on a very long time.. the masks, disinfectants, etc., so we may as well stock up.

    Hi Pav! Hi Kensho! Hi everyone checking in today..
    xx

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Monday evening greetings Nesters,

    The temp only hit the high 80’s today so technically the heatwave was broken but you would never know it by stepping outside. Summer is summer I guess, haha!
    We hauled 250 lbs of chicken feed home today & several bales of fresh pine shavings because it time to clean out the dirty chicken house. Some day I’d like to have self-cleaning chickens. LOL

    Pav, since all of the craft fairs were canceled this year I need to be careful about producing too much stuff!! There’s only so much room for storing things. For now I’m gifting a lot to old friends via mail.
    Hope your day was a good one

    LC, my husband will eat meat 3X/day. I can live fine without any, honestly. I just feel better when I don’t eat meat. I guess I’ll continue doing what I’ve been doing. I love pasta, brown rice & grains because they fill me up without making me feel sick. We have tons of veggies in the garden & ate some fresh steamed broccoli with dinner. Anything we don’t grow we can pick up at one of the zillion Farm markets around here. I’ve been making really good vegetable broth in the instant pot & freeze it until needed. I keep a bag of veggie scraps in the freezer & when it’s full I make the broth.
    I’m expecting my velcro delivery tomorrow to finish up a few of those shopping cart handle wraps.

    Hello to the rest of the nest crew & wishing everyone a safe night!

    Lav

    Re: Newbies Nest

    LC, I take Turmeric capsules. Are you taking the powder? I haven’t seen any capsules with black pepper, I’d grab them if they are available.
    Lav, yes, I’m pushing back, too, on the misinformation that is being out on FB. I’m reporting more posts than ever. Spreading misinformation as fast as possible is nuts. My brothers are two of the worst, I’ve had to snooze half of my friends. Ugg.
    106* heat index. It is brutal outside.
    So glad to see everyone doing well! These are stressful times for sure. Hugs to all, Byrdie

    Evening nesters

    Pauly, we are in stage 3 here so my daughter is now hairdressing one day a week. I do know this virus is not going anywhere in a hurry and we just have have to be mindful of what we are doing.

    Wags, your time away sounds like heaven, no going anywhere for me atm but i do get to take Carly out for a walk. Even carl thought it was too cold today. I hope your puppy is doing better.

    I had some days off last week and havent logged in, so i have lots of reading back to do. my daughter is staying with me for a few days so i have a bedmate. i will be so glad when i get my own space back again. three adult children in the house is a bit much.

    i have work coming out of my ears and they want to give me more but i want my pay increase before that happens and of course covid has reared its ugly head but im sick of the excuses. will see what the meeting i am having on friday brings.

    I have mum busily making masks for us, they are now advising us to wear them and i think thats a good idea. We cant go and see her for the time being.

    Otherwise i am well and glad to hear that everyone else is also.

    take care and be safe xx

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Morning nesters, Byrdie,I take a tumeric with bromelain,the black pepper ones were hurting my stomach BAD! I seen some of the posts and they're pretty brutal I don't blame you for snoozing cuz who needs that stress on top of everything else? I did end up "liking" a couple of posts but not the antimask stuff,those people just need to grow up California is shutting down again,I'm sure we'll be next,I need to tame my Amazon shopping for a bit and save some money for the inevitable,Ava,hey at least she gets that one day a week but that sucks! I like my two adults here cuz they just do their own thing,I'd be gutted if they moved out for now it works for me,Lav I'm like your hubs and hafta have meat at each meal or I feel cheated haha,our friend NoraC is a vegan and I've thought about it but briefly,I have been getting better on some things tho, waves to the gang and wishes for a happy day for us all!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    That is HOT. I love my pacific ocean air conditioner even if it is set too low a lot of the summer... Yes, Pauly, shutting down again. What a mess.

    I am so discombobulated - it sometimes really feels like I'm in a bad dream or post-apocalyptic (well, not quite post) movie. Can you imagine if we were drinking through this? I am so very grateful that my head is as clear as it can be. I certainly would have used the pandemic excuse to drink more!

    Stay safe everyone. Take care of yourselves, and don't drink.

    Pav
