    Hi Nesters!
    I've been stalking here for the past couple of weeks, but wanted to wait to sign on/check in until I have 30 days.. I've had to (again) pull myself together and this time, prove to MYSELF that I really want this.
    BUT, I want to congratulate Ava and Pav on 7 AF years!!! I'm so happy for you..
    Love and hugs to all of you wonderful people! xxx

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    Still chilly, just like winter is supposed to be
    Sourdough bread is rising, will bake tomorrow, yum.

    LC, goodness it’s great to see you again. Glad you’re getting back in gear, the nest wasn’t the same without you. Wishing you the very best & hope to see you checking in regularly.

    Kensho, it’s so nice when the community does something special for the frontline workers. They are definitely tired & working shorthanded, at least here on the east coast where the covid numbers are rising at crazy rates. Anything you offer will be greatly appreciated.

    Pav, hope that foot/ankle pain is easing.
    Congrats again on your 7 AF years

    Hello to G, Wags, Byrdie & everyone.
    Wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

    PAV!!! WAY TO GO on 7 years!!! I like logging in and hearing your voice. You have a rational tone, a kind heart, and I respect you and the work you have done for your sobriety. You have talked me out of more than one touchy situation and your perspective is always appreciated! Way to claim your sobriety - be proud of the you you decided to be.

    Busy day here, but wanted to high five PAV.

    Hi LC! Great to see you! Go for what you want... you will never, ever, ever have a different outcome when you drink. It just takes getting through the readjustment period... you can do this!
    Kensho

    Done. Moving on to life.

    Afternoon nesters

    Just wanted to check in and wish my quit buddy a happy 7th sober birthday. Time flies when you are having fun without al of course. Life just keeps getting better and better. I hope you have a happy day. much love

    LC great to see you log in, please keep on here, we still all love you and respect you any which way you are.

    Wags, our nurses/doctors got a lot of companies donating food, chocolates, beauty creams etc and free coffees from our cafe at work. I have a friend in ICU and she said it was heartbreaking sitting with someone while they died without family around, it takes its toll emotionally as well as physically on them. Luckily for us there are no cases in any of our hospitals now and people are being sensible. I went into work this week and you still have to do a covid screen, still a temperature check and still need to wear a mask at all times. one visitor per day for one hour. We are still very strict.

    I had to take my son to hospital today, he has a fistula on his testicle and needs surgery. This is the 2nd time so we know the drill but i cant be there. i had to drop him off at emergency and come home. I was not happy but i understand. he is still waiting for surgery. i do hope he will be home tonight.

    Kensho, maybe you could go around some shops and see if they will donate. do you have a fb group for your community, if so maybe post in that and ask for donations. i am sure they would appreciate anything. I cant see any end in sight for the medical profession in the US at the moment. Even just doing admin is draining at this time, patients are unsure, suicidal, etc and its just very hard for everyone. It is lovely what you are doing.

    Well i am going to nap, i cant see myself getting my son anytime soon and its been a long day. not done too much work so will spend a few hours later on that.

    Take care xxx

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    SO SO good to see you LC. Thanks for coming back, and I agree with Lav. The nest is better with you here.

    All of you, many thanks for the congratulations. I got myself takeout for dinner and even had some weeknight ice cream!

    Ava - that sounds awful. I hate that people can't be with their people who are sick. So sad to be in the hospital alone. I hope he comes through fine - that must really hurt.

    Send some sourdough over here, Lav! My son and I were saying that's the one thing we haven't tackled in the kitchen in the pandemic - bread. He made a delicious chicken pot pie with our leftovers - it was honestly the best I've ever had. And he's made up a few cookie recipes. Maybe bread is next...

    Happy SOBER Thursday,
    Pav

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    The sad report from my state is 11,640 new covid cases today. That’s just insane, no wonder the hospitals are struggling & have no where to put people
    We must do better & do it quickly!

    Pav, go to www.culturesforheatlth.com & get yourself a package of their excellent sourdough starter. I’ve kept mine going since last winter, easy to do. Their website & King Arthur Flour website both have great sourdough bread recipes. It’s a fun & tasty project

    Ava, I hope your son came thru his procedure OK. This sounds like a recurring situation, ouch.

    Hi to G, Kenhso, Narilly & everyone.
    I have some work to do tonight so I should get it done. Wishing everyone a safe & comfy night in the nest.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Ava - sorry to hear about your son's situation, both in needing to go to the hospital and in having to be alone while there. I hope he comes through it all expeditiously and healthfully.

    Pav - congrats again on 7 years AND on excellent choices for celebrating. What kind of takeout did you get?

    Lav - thanks for the suggested source for a sourdough starter. My wife and I might look into this as well.


    Hellos and waves to everyone stopping by the nest today. Happy (almost) Friday to you all!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    Wags, I got sushi. It is my favorite but for some reason the first time we have gotten it during the pandemic. I think I like it more than the rest of the family...

    Thanks, Lav. I'll check it out.

    My husband made a margarita last night, and I'll admit I looked at it for an extra 5 seconds instead of ignoring it as I usually do. That quick, easy release is tantalizing. All I have to do is remember the other 99% of hell that alcohol caused in my life and I'm GOOD. No, I actually don't want a margarita, thanks.

    Off to work. Happy SOBER Friday all.
    Pav
