    Re: Dec 8

    Good evening Abbers,

    Rain all day as was promised. I put the soaking wet chickens with the muddy feet to bed early. Dumb birds just stand out in the cold rain, Lol
    Now they’re talking about snow on Wednesday, oh joy.

    Hey Sam, glad you are surviving.
    I never bothered with a flu shot until the last time I actually got the flu & missed a week of work. I got into trouble because the flu shorts were mandatory at the hospital where I worked. SO, from then on I have gotten a flu shot every year & guess what? I haven’t gotten the flu!!! Feel better soon!

    Pauly, the only reason I start this early on the cookies is because I like a big variety - something for everyone

    Mick, take care of that shoulder now. You want to be in good shape for your Christmas trip.

    Hello to PQ, Cyn & Det!

    I have some cookie dough sitting in the fridge waiting to be baked,
    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Sam...glad you're on the mend. I never used to get the flu shot until one year the strain involved respiratory issues and with my copd I bit the bullet. Have gotten one every year since.

    Pauly...son is doing much better. Thankfully he is not bipolar and the meds he's on has calmed him down so we're all sleeping better now.

    Mick...you take it easy on that shoulder and let it heal properly. It was a cold, crisp and snowy day today. Snow off and on all week so I guess winter is here to stay. As I told Pauly, son is doing much better. The doc figures it's more of a situational depression/anxiety probably due to him having to get all his "stuff" off his property in Strathmore. He took the county to court and lost so now he has to follow the rules like everyone else. I'm doing much better and things are calm at work. Wonder if anything is ever going to come of this.

    Lav...gotta say rain would really suck right about now. It warmed up just enough for all the slush to reappear and driving was interesting. Watching people trying to turn and then getting sucked into the ditch. I really can't remember the last time I had the flu or even a cold for that matter. Let it be known, I am not a baker. Can hardly master cooking. LOL

    TG...not jinxing it but fingers crossed.

    Leftovers for supper tonight so easy peazy. Time to get into jammies and get comfortable. Have a peaceful evening all....PPQP

    Mae all -

    Well, it was 4+ hours of driving in the "driving" rain yesterday, plus working on my client papers so that they could get ready for their tax accountant. Lovely. I was so spent when I got home I couldn't even think about eating dinner! Hubs ran out and got an (organic) rotisserie chicken, which plus some roasted carrots from a day ago saved us.

    Mick, sorry about the sore arm - do take care! I hope your iffy internet decides to come to work today! I have lot posts and had the auto-save go awol too, frustrating. Wishing you .another crisp day.

    Lav, you baking fiend! Sounds great. BTW, I went back to that non-dairy baking site, and there are SO many great options. After T-giving, I made the coconut cream version of the pumpkin pie - holy cow, so much better than the oroginal version. Next I'll try it with the pecan crust so I can eat the crust too. Thanks again for sharing that! Happy baking today, and hope the chickens got dry eventually.

    PPQ, glad to hear about your son, I hope everything turns out OK. Depression is hard to live with, inside oneself or when it's in the house. Glad to hear it is quiet at work, enjoy it while it lasts!

    Pauly, thanks for the good wishes. I am still itching, but the bite areas seem to be going away. I am pretty sure at this point that the bugs were leaf mites - they are very hard to see with the naked eye. I was walking the dog out in the back of the building all fall, and (due to my dogs constant diarrhea at that point ) I was in contact with leaves all the time (covering up so no one would step in it!) sorry, TMI. Or from sitting on the porch, whichever. I remember thinking that the leaves looked pretty weird, with strange spots on them... oh well! Live and learn! Hopefully all this is in the past.

    Sam, glad to hear that you are a bit better. I don't usually get the shots - my husband does, but even so he seems to be able to catch the strain that wasn't covered by the shot -- hard to tell. Probably good to do on balance...

    Det - hope all is well in Det-land.

    May we be well --

    Well, working from home today, lucky me! Sounds like snow may be coming tomorrow, and that is OK by me. Be well all -

The programme .."Strictly come dancing "on of the judges said .."its not over till the fat lady sings"and now they want to ban it saying its improper to use the word fat...really is that all we have to worry about ..
    Shoulder has been playing up ..madam has decreed I am not going metal detecting..my shoulder was creasing me last night
    Anyway ..brew time

    hiya Lav how are you doing?hope all is well ..I think your chickens have the same brain pattern as my rabbits zilch now as for cookie dough ..I bought some cookie dough kit kats today..Ive only had 4 of them.(so far..)

    hiya ppqp how are you ? glad son is feeling better and that he isnt bipolar...good tea was it?easy peasy lemon squeezy..as for cooking ..Im quite adept at turning the dial on the oven and also listening for the chicken ding.

    hiya tee gee you ok hope so ..

    sam hope you are better we have hospitals on black alert here cos the hospitals cant cope.

    hi pauly hows you then today..hope all is good with you .

    I'm buying my Girlfriend a new dressing gown for Christmas.

    She's not showing me up in Wetherspoons with that tatty old one again.

    I'm opening a hair salon exclusively for conservative voters .

    I'm calling it Tory cuts.

    Conservative supporters said "the picture of the boy with pneumonia on the hospital floor in Leeds is fake"

    That's fine then I'm sure he can be treated in one of Boris's imaginary 40 hospitals and by his imaginary new doctors and nurses.

    Last weekend's "Big Sleepout" in which thousands of Brits spent a night on the streets in support of homeless charities has been hailed a huge success.
    The Tory government have claimed credit saying that, without them, nobody would have been on the streets at all that night.

    Niko Brenner, a German Rapper, has blown half his head off from an explosion while cooking drugs in his basement.

    Luckily it shouldn't effect his career.

    The World Anti Doping Agency ban on Russia has come too late to prevent their nefarious interference in the UK election process. Expectations are therefore high that one of two dopes will ascend to the summit of the Westminster greasy pole sometime on Friday morning.

    Russian players who have passed drugs tests will be allowed to take part in the next world cup say FIFA but not as Russia .

    Greetings Abbers,

    So today the president was charged with abuse of powers & Congressional obstruction!!!!
    The Republicans have their panties in a twist & are crying like a bunch of babies, haha! This is a dream come true for the majority of us

    More rain today & now waiting for snow to start but it won’t be much, so they say. I spent the day making pillows for a lady who ordered them at the last craft show. No cookie baking today but I will eat a few later

    PQ, glad the week is starting off on a quieter foot this week.
    Great news about your son, I hope he feels better soon. I have to agree with you, rain on top of snow can be nasty for driving. Take care out there!

    Cyn, after all this time I’m still thrilled to find a new dairy free cooking/baking recipe. Lately when I need a replacement for cream/evaporated milk I have been stirring a few Tbsp of tapioca flour into a cup of almond milk & the results are perfect for pumpkin pie, mushroom soup, etc.
    Sorry you had such a long hard day yesterday, geez!

    Milk, I hope you were able to hang onto your wig in all that wind today, Lol
    Tell Julie I think she should tie you to a chair to preserve that arm You don’t really want to be hurting on vacation, do you?.
    I noticed most of the chickens did not stand out in the rain today like a bunch of idiots.

    Hello to Pauly & Det - hope you are doing well. Sam, same to you!

    Have a nice night everyone.

    MAE ALL...

    TG...I don't think I've ever seen an organic rotisserie chicken, mind you I haven't looked. Roasted carrots sounds good. Driving in "driving" rain is exhausting. Glad you're working from home today. I am definitely enjoying the quiet time at work.

    Mick...storm Brenda! Another one! Boy you'll be glad to get out of dodge. I can't believe how "Politically Correct" everyone has become. Everyone but the politicians it seems. Is everyone that sensitive? You pay attention to Julie, we want you healthy for your trip. I'm glad my son isn't Bipolar, I had enough of that to last a lifetime. The rest I can deal with.

    Lav...I'm glad the work week has started off quieter too. I've had enough drama. Just going to keep my head down, do my work (whatever that is) and survive till the 2 week break at Xmas. Rain turning to snow can be pretty tricky too. You be careful if you have to make a run to the chicken coop.

    Son just walked in with tacos so it's time to eat. Have a peaceful night all....PPQP

    Mae all -


    Lav, yesterday made me proud - the Dems got it down in black and white for history to judge. Re: tapioca - I have a great baking book I got a little ago "Paleo baking" - no grains, no dairy and no refined sugar! Love it - and she uses tapioca starch in a lot of her recipies... I made an wonderful almond-cinnamon cake last week... trying to wean hubs off of refined sugar and gluten... even he liked it! Good luck with those beautiful pillows!

    Pauly, how are you doing? I bet busy busy before these holidays.

    Mick, do try to keep that arm safe and keep your eyes on the prize!! Sorry about th election mess, hope it turns out in whatever way is best (as if!)

    PPQ - quiet at work sounds wonderful! Oh, I mentioned "organic" because normally I hate rotisserie chickens - I can't deal,with all that plastic, and I'm fussy about where they are from and what they've been eating. But I was so tired that night that I probably would just have gone to bed without eating, so he ran out and scored dinner. Good boy.

    Sam, hope the healing continues! Det, are you coping with 2gals in your life and holidays coming? LOL. Hope,the photography is going well.

    A sweet snow layer is on the ground and I am working from home today, life is good.

    May we be well --

    Mae everybody,Mick loved hearing your voice yesterday that was awesome! Hope you stay safe in all that weather,we just rarely get rain here so I was a little jealous of your weather but didn't know how bad it was,PQ,what a relief your son doesn't have bi-polar!! I'm happy for that news and hope after his situation settles he'll feel better,I've had two nights in a row with shit sleep and last night took the cake,I couldn't fall asleep with one unisom so I took another, nothing, finally around midnight I took another unisom plus an antianxiety pill and dozed for a few hours! I know that's not good to do but I was absolutely wide awake! Hope today goes ok,lack of sleep is a huge drink trigger for me but then I remember how terrible that makes sleep too,I just don't know what's causing this? Lav,glad you got some orders, Cyn glad you're skin is clearing, itching is such an awful feeling,much love to all and wishes for a great BF Wednesday!
    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!

    morning all
    feel like this crap is on its way out. Kinda sound like a frog. Anyone remember Froggy from Spanky & Our Gang? that's me.

    Mick, enjoyed the videos, sounds like weather your way has been a bit nasty
    PQ, good news about your son. There's some bipolar in our extended family and it can be very difficult.
    TG, thanks for the well wishes
    Pauly, the lack of sleep I believe is what made me more prone to getting sick, I didn't get any sleep the night before I got sick. So hope you get that worked out!
    Lav, any snow last night, plenty of rain here but no white stuff.

    going to see if I can get a few things done outside. I've got folks wanting their plats and I can't get the field work completed.

    be well everyone and thanks for being good friends
