    MAE ALL...

    Mick...hope you get some pictures of the low spots in the garden for when you start landscaping in the the spring. You may think you'll remember but trust me you won't. LOL I hope the review on Wednesday is positive and you can be offski. RIP Word Search Inventor.

    Did some putzing and decluttering, making stacks for goodwill. Took a load of garbage out and blimey it's freezing. With the windchill it's -18F. This is only supposed to last today and high tomorrow is 30F. It'll feel like a heatwave. So whatever has to be done outdoors can wait until tomorrow.

    Shout out to everyone, hope you're having a peaceful Sunday....PPQP

    Re: 13th December

    Mae all - checking in earlier in the day, since I pooped out yesterday before writing. Had a long drive to my main storage 10x20 place; I trusted the phone nav to put in the address and sure enough I ended up at the wrong one. Looked the same to me - of course that was after a night of no sleep and a hair-raising load up and drive through hours of pouring rain (with my movers). So I guess that might have been a contributing factor. So, 40 minutes later I arrive at the correct place (entrance code works!). Wow, why was I not prepared to see all those things that I last saw under duress on June 27th...

    So, a bit of an emotional upheaval, especially as hubs' clothing was the first thing to deal with so I could get further in. Dear me. I could not find my coats, hats, or gloves, but I did find the printer, which was the most coveted prize. It was totally astonishing. I moved 1 box, and there it was, with the white label and my tidy printing, declaring "printer." Woo Hoo! This will alleviate a lot of stress for me.

    So, a bit of an up and down day, especially because it was raining all the way there and back. (What's up with that?). Today we had an almost spring-like day... so hard to remember that it is December... but I'm sure that the weather will remind us soon.

    Thinking of everyone, and hoping that you all have a calm and happy end to the weekend and a good start for next week...

    PPQ - hoping you can stay home if it is so cold. Mick, hoping that the stats get you out of Covid jail. Wishing all well -take care -

    Re: 13th December

    Good evening friends,

    Today was the last of our balmy days, snow arriving sometime tomorrow & more on Wednesday. I have plenty to do inside so I’m not too concerned.
    Have had fairly crappy sleep the last several nights for no apparent reason. Leaves me feeling kind of stupid, Lol
    I need to decide what to do about gift for for son, DIL & SIL, everyone else is done. They’ll likely end up with gift cards again.

    PQ, that sure is some cold weather, geez!! Take care & stay inside!!
    I’m in the mood for de-cluttering too, I’m just short on energy lately. I’ll get to it eventually.

    Mick, maybe you can turn your garden into a pond, wetland area. It would be a lot easier than fight mother nature if you know what I mean. We had a small pond at our former place with water lillies & other blooming plants & some koi like fish. It was pretty cool & always attracted the tiny frogs . Of course your bunnies probably have other ideas.
    More things are closing down around here because people couldn’t be bothered wearing masks . I hope you get a chance to escape Covid-land for Christmas.

    Cyn, you sure have had a ton to deal with, I wish I could lend a hand.
    Glad you actually got your printer though. We have several around here including an air printer which is cool.
    We had a sudden downpour at 11 pm last evening, it was quick. Now we are prepping for snow, ugh.

    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is OK.

    I am going to mix up some pizzelle dough & store it in the fridge until I feel like pressing them.
    Wishing everyone a good night!

    Re: 13th December

    Morning all - drizzling snow here, supposed to last all day. Oh well, can't complain - yesterday was balmy and lovely... the pup and I spent some quality time out on the deck!

    I had a bit of a panic last night when my step-daughter (in CA) wasn't answering her phone... we didn't FaceTime over the weekend. which we usually do... and her workplace (community health center) has been a disaster, nurses and other workers dropping out from Covid - she is in charge of staffing, but there's no one to work. So I knew she was stressed. I called, texted, messaged from 9 pm to 12 am... no answer. I was just looking up how to call the police in her town when she texted me that she was alright, the phone malfunctioned. Hmmmmm, maybe. I asked several times if she was really doing OK (she is dealing with a lot on top of losing her dad, and this being the holidays); she wrote Yes. What else can I do? Except get all the info that I was kicking myself that I don't have... the phone number of her neighbors, the license plate ID of her car... make I know, but ?model ?plate numbers? Name and number of the pet sitter? Sometimes it takes a scare to remember what info we need to share, especially when you live alone... So, that's a task for today - after a short night - my pup doesn't believe in sleeping in ��

    Wishing all well today, stay safe, stay in if you can. Mick, I hope you are sprung!

    To the light...

    Re: 13th December

    Hello all and how are we today then? Hope everyone is good it is 15:55 here I've done all sorts of bits and pieces today and yet I don't know what I've done that makes sense. Didn't sleep at all last night went to bed about 11 and wide awake at 2 to and in between I saw midnight on the clock as well. I thought the stuff was finally going but obviously I was wrong oh well not to worry. So this afternoon I feel pretty tired it's cold over here as well we've got rain forecast all week but wait for it wait for it... snow at the weekend how good is that

    Hello Sam the Man how are you today then after your 8 hours sleep! Hope things are well with you my friend take care look after

    Hello tree girl how are you today then question mark so you have started sorting your stuff out have you? I'm sure there will be sad moments but again I have seen your posts you dwell on the positive as opposed to the negative and to be honest with you you seem to do pretty good at it. Yes yes possibly we will get out of covid this week need to wait and see see the big one now is the government has decreed that families can meet for 5 days over Christmas and a lot of people and scientists are refusing it it saying we are no verge of The Vaccines white push it back so much by doing something stupid because strangely enough at Christmas people will drink and drink and common sense aren't things that are in Great supply together so by introducing such measures it could give us a third-wave. Anyway you take care and look after yourself

    Hiya lav how are you today then question mark hope all is well with you we used to have a pond in the garden and to be honest with we loved it it but when we got our first rabbits we filled it in the two lunatics I have now I wouldn't take the chance with not that they are stupid but one of devious and the other very inquisitive again in the past I had koi carp in the pond which the heron was very fond of introducing himself to so you didn't sleep either did you ? Trouble is we are both different ends of the day otherwise we could chat haha take care look after yourself

    Hiya ppqp
    How are you then hope all is well with you yes I took some pictures a video and all sorts of the garden I've definitely got reference points for it for next year what are you doing for Christmas? You and also the country and general are you locked down or allowed out to play?

    As you can see I've just done this on my phone so I'll post it now now and put some jokes and pictures up later on take care and look after yourself

    Re: 13th December

    MAE ALL...

    TG...you had quite the day Saturday, all that stress to get there and then get hit with hub's box right off the bat. At least you had good deck weather yesterday. It is scary not being able to get ahold of a loved one, I'm glad that got sorted. Living with a person with Bipolar I have learned to have every piece of information I could possible have on him. Hope you don't get too much snow, we're good until Sunday again.

    Lav...well the heat wave didn't hit but it is slowly warming up. I thin Mother Nature was just giving us a heads up. Hope you had a better night's sleep last night.

    Sam...did you discover muscles you never knew you had. LOL Yup, like me, those girls like to stick to their schedule.

    Mick...sorry about the sleep, I was hoping it was on the way out too but I think you're getting there. No wonder you loved the pond, it's gorgeous. Yes, I thought of the Peskies right away. Yup, we're under lockdown for Christmas but that's ok as it's usually just us anyways. I will miss not having dinner with my brother and his family though. Will tier 2 allow you to get your Christmas get away in? Looks like you'll be trading places with London.

    Shout out to Det, Pauly and PI....please check in.

    Did pop out to get some essentials, it was a little quieter but with the lockdown taking place yesterday some places still looked pretty busy. All I can do is look out for myself. Lunch is over so back to figuring out my Corporate Memberships. Have a great day all....PPQP

    Re: 13th December

    Good evening all,

    I think we’ve had Mick’s rain all day but at least it didn’t snow, haha! Great big giant puddles everywhere, especially in the empty corn fields all around us.
    Currently the prediction for Wednesday’s snow storm is 12-18” haha, we’ll see. Made a big tray of pizzelles this afternoon now I need to hide them from myself, Lol

    Cyn, I’m sorry you felt scared last night. I know I worry when I can’t get ahold of my kids, oh boy. I know they can’t answer phones while they’re at work but still you worry. Neither of them have house phones anymore either, geez. Hope you didn’t get too much snow today.

    Sam, I didn’t even let my chickens out today, their yard is a mud pit with all this rain haha!!
    Hope your aches leave soon.

    Mick, that was a very nice pond you had there, reminds me of the one we had. Loved all the aquatic plants too.
    Didn’t sleep much better last night either, weird week I guess.

    PQ, sorry you missed your heat wave. I’ll post a picture of Wednesday’s snowstorm on FB for you

    Hello Pauly & Det.

    Have a nice night everyone!
