    MAE ALL...

    Mick...thanks for starting the thread, you beat me to it. Our weather knows what it wants to do...snow. So much for a skiff of snow yesterday, it started and didn't stop. Good thing is it's the light fluffy stuff instead of the heavy wet snow we got earlier. I'll be glad to see the end of 2020 as well. I have a feeling that we're going to be under some type of restrictions well into March and that will make it a full year. Holy crap!

    Today will see me taking down the tree, not even going to wait till New Years. Shout out to the rest of the gang and I'll check in later to see how everyone's doing...:smilt:PPQP (I wonder if smilt is a word. LOL)

    Re: 27th December

    Good evening Abbers,

    Cold here but dry, nothing falling from the sky which is oK with me.
    Spent a lot of the day thinking about what I want to do & ended doing mostly nothing, haha!! I seem to be missing motivation, Oh well.

    Mick, as long as you & the bunnies are warm & dry it doesn’t matter what the weather does, right?
    Is your loft insulated? Sometimes they get very cold up there. I am so ready for this year to be over & for many reasons. I sure hope we can get some ‘normal’ back in the coming months, I really don’t like wishing time away like I have this year.

    PQ, keep your head above all that snow, geez! Glad you’re on a break & don’t have to do any traveling.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could lay low & emerge virus free at the end of March? That would be a true blessing.

    Hello to Cyn, pauly, Det, Sam & Pie. I hope everyone is OK & taking good care

    Have a good night all!

    Re: 27th December

    Mae all,

    Sounds like we are all stuck in "neutral". Well, I was yesterday anyway... today it was clear and crisp and I managed a real walk... the first one in nearly a month of living here.

    Next weekend is a big business thing for my hubs' orchestra that I am doing some work for ... sheesh, just what I needed, pressure to get a public internet event all figured out. But, oh well, here we go. I just shut down my computer... I figured hours of work on a Sunday was enough...

    Lav, you are probably still tired from the holidays just last! Mick, I love that you have that getaway up in the attic... like time travel... it must be somewhat soothing... sorry it's chilly though. PPQ, wow, that's a lot of snow... so glad that this wave is the light fluffy kind, and ditto Lav... glad you don't have to get out and drive in it!

    Lav, you mention Daily Om a lot ... are they classes? Have you taken one? There is one that you posted that interests me... I'm going to check it out... just wondered if you have personal experience...

    I love that the light seems to be picking up speed in terms of length... stronger each day. And by the way Mick, thanks for that beautiful moon that you sent across the pond... I stood and looked at it for a long time after it rose...

    Cheers to Pauly, Det, Sam, Pi and all others... be safe...

    Ahoy, ho ho ho and top O the morning ABeroooos!

    everyone seems to be holding up ok despite the weirdness of this 2020 holiday season.
    PPQ, I'll be heading to a more snowy clime soon but I'm thinking nowhere near your levels.

    Christmas day was good fun in our holiday PJ's with norty cookies and all. We're also taking the ornaments down now
    since we're also smack in the middle of downsizing etc to prep for our big move to Utah. work is scary slow currently but
    that's no surprise for this time of year. Just not handy for the extra expenses of a move. oh well...we're pressing on and doing
    pretty well keeping our chins up.

    santa got me an apple watch which I must say appeals greatly to my nerdy/geeky self quite nicely and was a huge surprise... still
    learning how to use it and figure out a good sleep app. Thankfully my sleep is getting better and I'm waking up early again like I used to.

    Lav, motivation is super rough especially this year. arg!

    Mick, any metal detecting adventures upcoming?

    time to post more furniture for sale...

    shouts to Tree, Sam, Pauly, anyone else lurking?

    be well loves!

    "That's it!" she stormed, "I can't compete with you and your 80's rock music. I'm leaving you. I've met someone new."

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...I hope you didn't think too hard yesterday LOL...liked the outcome though. I've lost my motivation as well. Still a lot of snow around, too much to melt with any of the chinooks that have come through. I think we're in for the long haul now. Here's hoping everyone plays by the rules and March will be the beginning of a great spring.

    TG...neutral it is. I keep telling myself to get out and walk and as the restrictions continue I might just actually accomplish that. LOL I'm sure the work you're doing for your hub's orchestra is much appreciated, you got this girl. We were really spoiled this year with no snow in Sep/Oct/Nov...knew this was coming. LOL

    Det...thanks for popping in, I know it's tough with everything going on. I'm relieved to know that you weren't trying to get it all done before Christmas, that would have been really stressful. I'm glad you had a good PJ holiday, now the work begins eh? Nice score on the apple watch, right up your alley. Keep us posted.

    Mick..we hit the last of the turkey yesterday and I'm not sorry to see it go. LOL Yup tree down and things sorted again. We've still got about 2ft of snow every where that's not plowed. The additional snow was the white not wet stuff which was nice. It's hard enough walking around out there. I think you need to get a space heater in the loft, mind you you're usually not home this time of year.

    Been a quiet day and now I'm trying to convince the boys they need to supply dinner tonight as I've been doing all the cooking lately. Wonder if I'll win. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 27th December

    Good evening all,

    I hear there’s some cold air moving in from the west but no precipitation until NY eve which will be rain. Hope the drunks stay home & off the roads.
    Got out to the grocery store & drug store today, nothing much else happening here.

    Cyn, glad you got out for a bit! That big beautiful moon is probably the reason I woke up every hour on the hour last night, haha. There’s no way to escape it for me.
    I signed up for the Daily OM emails years ago & have taken several of their classes, all have been good too. They have classes on a variety of topics, just look thru their website.
    Do you have access to an IT person to help you with the online events? That sure would be helpful & take a lot of stress off your shoulders.

    Det, good to see you & I figured you were busy getting ready for your move.
    The Apple watch sounds like a perfect gift for you, enjoy

    Mick, glad you got to see Amy.
    Sounds like bonnie is not to be defeated, haha!! Animals can be so weird sometimes.
    Only 23 days until we are rid of the orange menace in the White House. This has been an incredible 4 years, worse than anyone could have imagined.

    Hello to PQ, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is OK.
    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 27th December

    Mae all -

    Thanks for all the news... good luck, Det! Moving is stressful, but worth it in the end. Lav, I started a Daily Om class (like put in about 20 minutes) yesterday. No time today, but hope to do more tomorrow - Good luck with the moon tonight. Mick, I just love Bonnie's thinking... it keeps you on your toes! Glad you got to see Amy. PPQ, sorry about the snow being here now for the long run... but you are right, it IS The end of December. Pauly, how was your Christmas? Everything OK at your house? Sam, hope all is well... wishing good sleep to all who visit...

    Falling asleep myself as I write this... good night!

In addition to that we have been painting Julie is doing the front room and I'm doing the kitchen. Just in the kitchen a little bit of time because it's taking two coats and then needs to be waxed to seal the paint in on the doors and worktop carcase
