    Good Morning,

    Good to see you Pauly. Yes, the economic fallout is so scary. Those food lines in Texas where people were in cars for hours - very sad. And donations down.

    Marionberry pie sounds good, Wags. I made apple pie with my son and it really came out not good. Oh well, you win some you lose some. I'm not really a baker anyway.

    Not much to report. I am feeling VERY lazy. We'll see what the day brings, but so far coffee and a puzzle...

    Happy SOBER Saturday.
    Pav

    Good evening Nesters,

    Had a quiet day which I needed & really appreciated. Created a turkey pot pie for dinner & now I have more leftovers, haha!!
    One of my ‘baby chicks’ laid her first egg today at only 4 months old. I guess she was watching the older birds & figured why not?? It was very tiny but perfect

    Wags, I hope the rest of your weekend is nice & relaxing! Quiet holidays are perfectly OK.

    Pauly, food comas are pretty typical after big holiday meals, haha. Drink lots of water today & you’ll feel better tomorrow.

    Pav, enjoy the lazy day, make a whole weekend of it just for fun

    Th economic disaster we are seeing could have largely been avoided if we had an adult in charge last March. People losing their homes & suffering food shortages should never be happening here in the US. We’re supposed to be better than that. My daughter told me today that the ICUs at her hospital are filled. People who should be in ICU are being held in the ER, there’s no place to put them. So much hospital staff has been laid off because they are losing money. So who is taking care of the patients? Please take care everyone, this is so sad & scary.

    Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

    Hola nesters,

    Sheesh Lav. The situation sounds worrying. Thinking of you all in the USA.

    I feel so fortunate to be sober. It sure gets easier to maintain the more sober time you have. Boozing as a solution will still occassionally pop into my head, but the inclination is so weak and small now that common sense and logic thankfully prevails.

    Take it easy. Big waves to evabody.

    'I am part of all that I have met, yet all experience is an arch wherethro', gleams that untravelled world whose margins fade, forever and forever when I move'

    Zen soul Warrior. Freedom today-

  6. Thanks Lavande thanked for this post

    Good Sunday evening Nesters,

    Hope everyone is OK & just busy doing holiday things.
    I can’t even imagine how stressful it would be having to deal with an addiction or two during this stressful time. We are a smart bunch, aren’t we? Focusing on healthy self-care is more important now than ever!

    Hello G & thanks for the thoughts

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

    Hey all! Sounds as if everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. I did like any good Southerner, I took my leftover stuffing and fried it up into patties. Yummy! The only remaining leftover is sweet potato casserole, and we are working on that.

    A neighbor of mine was featured in a magazine with her family recipes. The table setting she had was simply beautiful. I noticed she had a set of serving pieces that match a pitcher I have. So I wrote her a note and asked if she would like to have it. She was thrilled. That put me into my closets again...rearranging and organizing. I need to get rid of stuff, I don’t foresee entertaining like I used to back when I drank. I looked for any excuse and a party was just what I needed to justify a big night of drinking. I hosted wine tastings that I don’t even remember. Oy. Like Mr G so eloquently said, the longer I’m sober, the easier it gets. Heck, if it stayed as hard as it was that first week, nobody could do it! Stay the course, everyone!
    I may make some fruit cakes tomorrow! Mine can actually be eaten and not used as doorstops!
    Hugs to all! Byrdie

    Weekend was quiet with me too, just did my usual cycling. Bike needs a new chain so ordered it from Halfords. Not much else going on with me. No booze this month thank heaven.

    Well, another sober weekend in the books and here we are starting a new week. Almost starting a new month! Wasn't it just July like 3 weeks ago??? Today was a fabulous day off. A bit of a relaxed (ok lazy) start, then off for a hike in one of our beautiful urban wilderness parks here. We're so lucky to have some amazing natural areas just a short drive or bike ride from our house. We used the hike as our workout, so did a couple of extra repetitions on the steepest longest hill. It was HARD and also felt so good to be able to do.

    Byrdie - good on you for offering the pitcher to your friend! That must have felt good on multiple fronts, and it sounds like she really appreciated it. Pix of your fruitcake?

    Walk - what do you do in the way of cycling? My wife and I are avid cyclists and it's always fun to meet others who are drawn to two wheels.

    Hellos and waves everyone. Keep on checking in even if just to say all is well. Catch you all tomorrow!

    I live in south Dublin, near to the Wicklow mountains. So there are plenty of good routes. The downside is, Dublin has become very busy. Too busy for my tastes.

    Evening nesters

    Sounds like everyone ate too much at thanksgiving, xmas is my big food binge.

    Going to mums again this weekend, she turns 84. she gave me a scare last week when she rang, had pain in her arm and shoulder so wanted to know what she should do. oh call an ambulance mum. luckily all good she did something to her shoulder. Its amazing how elderly people dont want to bother the ambulance people. I did have the hospital call later to say they had lost her. she just up and went home. She said they didnt tell her she had to stay to get meds but she is as deaf as a post.

    Sounds like you had a nice time away Kensho. Our borders are opening up now as we dont have any covid cases or very few. I think i will go somewhere in my own state over my xmas break. i do want to catch up with my cousin. she applied for a job as an air hostess and at 58 got the job, she is so excited as she has always wanted to be one but was classed as "too short"years ago. so she starts training in January. Glad its her, i would need 2 valium every time i went anywhere. i may get to see her more when she comes to melbourne so that is a positive.

    Nar, fingers crossed for your job.

    I remember googling "am i an alcoholic" then "where to get help to give up drinking". Grateful everyday for finding here. I still cant believe i have successfully stopped and hate al with a vengeance.

    Have to finish painting my nails. going into work tomorrow to try and show the new nurse something. I went in to work today for a meeting which just gave me more work.

    take care and be safe. Hopefully when Biden gets in life will change for the better for everyone. xx
