    Re: 29 Dec

    morning all,
    the wife is finally on the mend, it is the first time I've debated on getting a flu shot. We're planning on doing Xmas tomorrow on new years day.

    it is of course that time of year to look back just a smidge and wonder what the heck happened last year. Most of what comes to mind is political so I won't go there, but the most amazing thing to me was seeing pictures of the black hole in space. I've been reading a Stephen Hawking book, explaining the theory of them and I wake up a morning and see a picture of one! very timely. Such a vast unknown out there.

    I hope all of you enjoy your new years, see you next year!

    MAE ALL...

    TG...great that you were able to get back and visit with friends, not great that the ice storm hit. I've been on an icy gravel road before, it's deceiving. Good to hear that you got the dog and got home safe and sound.

    Lav...glad your weather is holding up, we're sitting around 43F, sunny and no snow. Good idea about re-wrapping in non-Christmas paper for Louie. That's another thing I've never experienced, a convection oven. I agree about the new appliances not standing up as well as they used to. I was house sitting for my brother one time and went to do a load of laundry and couldn't figure out how to start the darn thing. Packed it all up and brought it home to wash. LOL

    Sam...glad everyone's feeling better and great idea about doing Xmas on new year's day. Will you be celebrating new year's on Valentines Day? I'm a Hawking's fan as well and remember the pic of one.

    Pauly...your new years eve plans sound the same as mine, except instead of chicken wings I'm making mini taco casseroles in muffin tins. I'll let you know how they turn out.

    Mick...good to see you're home safe and sound. You've probably been out and about already picking up the peskies. Wishing you and Julie all the best for the new year as well.

    Det...wishing you a happy new year as well.

    The federal government is implementing a carbon tax in Alberta starting tomorrow. Every gas station in the city is backed up with cars. So glad I filled up on Sunday. LOL Have a great BF New Year's Eve all....PPQP

    Re: 29 Dec

    Good last evening of 2019 everyone

    No rain today, partly sunny & 40 something ~ not bad!
    Did a little extra fluffing of the chicken house bedding so the girls donít have to start the new year in stinky mode, haha!

    Sam, sure glad you guys are recovering. The flu stuff is awful. I firmly believe in getting the flu shot every year, whether it works or not. It does give you Ďsomeí immunity. Itís so darn hard to recover from flu after age 50 or so. I hope you enjoy your belated Christmas.

    Pauly, honestly, I spent more time awake than asleep last night - who knows? Hoping for some better sleep tonight!

    Mick, glad you are home safe & sound. Howís the cranium? Any redness? Lol

    PQ, glad your weather is holding up too. Donít tell anyone, haha!
    This is the first convection oven Iíve ever had, takes some time getting used to BUT once you get the hang of it, itís great! Does a wonderful job roasting a turkey or chicken (not one of mine) of course.
    I hope you have a quiet evening!

    Hello to Cyn, Det & Pie ~ wherever you are!

    Remember our friend on this thread Chillgirl? Saw her on FB today, sheís celebrating 10 years AF!!!

    Wishing everyone peace & happiness going into 2020!!!!!

    Lav

    Happy New Year all!

    I got busy with last-day-of-the-Year jobs yesterday, then cooked us a nice dinner here at the apartment (little lobster tails with risotto and salad with pomegranates) and went down to our nice lobby to party a little bit with some friends. Dragged ourselves back up to the apartment before midnight, and fell into bed!

    Lav, I loved the fresh bedding for the girls... what a nice chick-mom you are! It was wonderful to see Chill online announcing her 10 years- wow, we have been hanging around this thread for awhile, eh?

    Mick, so glad you are safe home, and that the sun is shining! Nice way to start the year.

    Pauly, I hope you had a good night last night and that you got some sleep eventually!

    PPQ, I agree about the new washing machines! I'd go back to the old ones in a flash. I have convection capability but haven't figured out how to use it... Lav will have to give me a tutorial. But I did make the risotto in 5 minutes in the instant pot! Woo Hoo!

    Sam, so glad you both are on the mend... enjoy your belated Xmas today.

    Busy Det, hope you are doing well -

    To you sweet friends on this thread and on this site - thanks for the more-than-decades support, and wishing everyone a wonderful AF decade to come. Cheers!

    Re: 29 Dec

    Mae everybody, Happy New year to you all! I barely remember Chillgirl but have read some of her posts, fab job on 10 years for her, always good to read success stories, funny and annoying that I'd share with customers that I don't drink anymore when they asked about my NYE plans, they acted assholey about it"I could never stop" or"sounds boring" eff you people! Kell gets the same when she mentions she don't drink and she's decided to just not say a peep, just wonder why people would be so negative about a good thing ya know? Meh that's Vegas people I guess, one big party town, Cyn I got an insta pot for Christmas and I just look at it, still feel like I'm the Crock-Pot Queen and don't wanna give up my title hahaha! PQ, how were the taco boats? Wings were good and I made Velveeta (quiet Lav) and chili in the Crock-Pot as a dip yum! Also ordered a pizza for the boys, which I'm so happy there's still some in the fridge for lunch today yippee! Sad to take the Chrimbo decs down but like hubs says we'll be putting them back up in a flash as fast as the time goes, Mick I played your voice recording to LB so I could brag about having a friend who lives in England, she said "he sounds Scottish" I said he is but lives in England haha, happy hogamany or whatever it's called haha, much love to the gang and wishes for a great BF whatever day it is for us all-love you ALL for being my rocks!!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

    Off the table no MATTER what.
