    MAE ALL...

    Mick...thanks for starting this weeks thread. It's nice over here too, went for a walk but it was no where near 8 miles. LOL Good thing you got back to being you again yesterday. Glad the Peskies are enjoying their new winter abode, lucky to have a summer get away place. Hope Julie's dad continues to improve. You take it easy laying that cushioned flooring next week.

    Lav...we're going to be above freezing all week which is a nice change. Next weekend temps are dropping but shouldn't last long. Dare I say we might be heading into spring soon. I'm really glad I don't suffer from migraines, these chinooks can be hard to handle. I'm still having a tough time with my sleep, I think I need to get more outdoor activity into my daily routine. Otherwise I may try OTC sleep aides again.

    TG...gremlins just keeping you on your toes. LOL Pauly can't sign in and you can't sign out. Great find on the support-type vest for Zander, I'm sure both of you are grateful. No project work this weekend and am hoping for some resolutions next week. Not stressing over it anymore, it'll get done when it's done.

    Det...good to see your post. You be careful sledding in the mountains, it's not so forgiving on us oldies. Nice pics of the lake, thoughts of getting a boat now? Hope you get some good news on the job front soon, I know how frustrating that can be. It's been awhile since girly has had a bad day. I must say I'm proud of the way you handled it. Will we be seeing the next Youtube Cooking Show from you soon?

    Shout out to Pauly, Sam and Pi. Hope all is ok with everyone.

    Have a good Sunday all....PPQP

    Re: 21 Feb

    Good evening folks,

    Cold but dry here so that’s good. We may see a little snow tomorrow, nothing much they say. I hope they’re right this time, haha!!
    I made a big fat pot of vegan creamy vegetable chowder, yum. We’ll be eating that all week.
    I did make plans to go see my granddaughter Friday afternoon & take them out to lunch for her 10th birthday, looking forward to that

    Det, those lake pics are awesome, looks so clean & peaceful there! Your arugula pesto looks lovely too
    Listen, I have 3 grandkids that are tiptoeing into hormone-ville - I get what you are dealing with. You did great, stayed calm, found your inner peace & let it blow over. When they lash out it’s the hormones, don’t take it personally. Keep taking beautiful pics, something will open up for you in the job market.

    Mick, sounds like you enjoyed your 8 mile HIKE today, Lol. If my feet were in better shape I would have done something similar. Glad your family & crew are doing OK.
    I’ve just signed us up at a 3rd location for vaccines, I hope one of the 3 places calls soon. The bad weather across the country has held up distribution apparently.

    PQ, I get mild head changes with this goofy weather but nothing real bad. It was real bad 20 years ago after my head injury though, ugh.
    I finally ordered an extra thick mattress topper to go on top of my new firm mattress so I have slept longer the past two nights. The mattress is fine for my lower back but the firmness was making my shoulders ache - ridiculous. I’m still using OTCs but I don’t care, whatever works, right? We need sleep to function!!

    Cyn, that doggie lifter is a good idea as long as you can manage it. The vet wanted me to get one for Maxie but she was 100 lbs & I couldn’t lift her without hurting myself. We ended using large pool towels & it took 2 of us to lift her. Zander is slimmer, thank goodness. Be on the lookout for something in teh mail this week

    Hello Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night one & all!

    Mae all -

    Sorry I missed posting last night, I had joined a "checkit out" class about drumming and meditation, and I got so excited I just enjoyed the feeling of freedom. Plus I had a long day of paperwork and estate work and taxes, and couldn't face any more normal screen time.
    Ended up LOVING this class and signed for the $11 per month. This woman is the real deal, and I love drumming! In my secret life, I am an awesome Conga player (dreaming of that anyway.) No drum needed for this class, so I am good to go... or she tells you which upside-down pots are good... if you are interested, it is called Rhythm Bliss.

    Sounds like all are good - Det I missed your last post, so will go check it out. Sounds like you are keeping the faith, great job.

    Love to all - will,do a proper checkin this evening, promise. Have a good one today, I am sending you all Light!

    Gentle Thoughts for Today

    Birds of a feather flock together and crap on your car.


    When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.


    The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.


    The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.


    Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are ' XL.'


    The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.


    There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt .


    Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs.'


    The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.


    Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved..


    When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.


    Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.


    Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today, it's called golf


    Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.



    big shout to everyone else

    Good evening friends,

    We have a fresh 4Ē of snow that I didnít order, haha!!!
    Got YB to drive me a few places today, his truck will go in anything. The good news is itís warming up to the 50ís at some point this week so I guess mud season will begin.

    Cyn, I canít imagine you as a drummer but if it makes you happy then absolutely!!!! Sounds interesting
    I hope you donít get this weather, you donít need it either.

    Mick, I still wake up a few times during the night but I just reposition myself & go back to sleep (thanks to the OTCs). Definitely having less aches in the mornings.
    Today we surpassed 500,000 deaths in the US & this isnít over yet. We really need the vaccine help

    Hello to PQ & the rest of the crew. Hope everyone is OK
    Have a good night all!

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well well it is really blowing a gale over here today and guess what what both the rabbits are in their outside hots they decided to go in there and quite happily sitting there they will have ever be coming in to their winter quarters in a little while. Finished sanding off the windowsill going up the stairway, dusted it off off just let the dust settle now before I oil it up it.

    Hiya lav how are you today then question mark hope all is well it sounded like it was earlier on despite the 4 inches of snow you have got you can have my share if you need to build a snowman. You always have I don't know where you're vaccine program is up to perhaps your government should do the same as ours and put a military mind in charge of the logistics because it's sadly has work for us in the meantime you stay safe

    Hello everyone else how are you hope things are ok with you all. Take care are look after yourselves

    Re: 21 Feb

    MAE ALL...Could have sworn I posted yesterday.

    TG...a previous coworker and friend of mine runs a drumming circle. She raves by it, i have yet to try it. Interesting you can do it without drums.

    Lav...we got heavy wet snow overnight, along with a thunderstorm and hail. LOL Temps will be above freezing today so a lot of it will melt and turn to slush. At least I don't have to deal with mud. Good plan on having YB do the driving in that weather. By the sounds of our vaccine rollout I should be able to get mine in April some time. It looks like our restrictions are being eased on Monday so I may be back to work in the office.

    Mick...I hope you wore a mask with all that dust yesterday. Any news on lifting some of the restrictions yet? I guess the Peskies just needed a change of scenery, I know the feeling. They are thinking of going to step 2 on Monday and opening community centres. Wonder if they're going to lift the mandatory work from home orders as well. Seems like they're right hand doesn't know what the left is doing.

    Hello to Pi, Det, Sam and Pauly.

    Finalizing some program issues to open up the Community Garden signup online. I've been procrastinating as I'll just get swamped with more work when I do. I have had 3 times the request for a garden plot this year. Popped into work yesterday to return the stud finder and spoke briefly with the boss. He's looking at getting ready to let some of our renters back in, so that'll be more work for me. I'm going to take it slow this week and get back into things when I get back into work. LOL Have a good evening all....PPQP

    Re: 21 Feb

    Good evening Abbers,

    Sunshine & 46 degrees today, yay! Tomorrow it hits 55!
    I was so bored (not like me) today that I rode along with YB this afternoon on his Amish job. He had to pick up greenhouse tables, built by a local Amish guy & deliver them to the Amish guy in Lancaster who builds greenhouses. Boring but it was 2 1/2 hours out & about haha!! Feeling more like myself now. I guess a year of pandemic will throw anyone off their rocker sooner or later. I have ordered lots of wildflower seeds that I intend to plant everywhere for the pollinators so we’re all happy this summer

    Mick, if you lived just a little closer I’d pay you to do some jobs around here. I have no interest in painting anymore, I used to do a lot. I hope you’re giving yourself some downtime too. I had a hard time getting my chickens to go inside this evening, they were enjoying the fresh air too

    PQ, it seems like the weather can’t quite make up it’s mind, haha hail, thunder or snow???
    Spent 2 1/2 hours sitting in the truck this afternoon now I’m all stiff, oh well. Hope you can ease back into the office, a little at a time

    Cyn, did you end up getting any of that snow yesterday? We ended up with 4”, enough.
    Hope you & Zander are staying comfy

    Hello to Pauly & Det!
    Sam & Pie I wish you would check in.

    Have a nice night all!

    Mae all -

    Hmmm, Lav, yes definitely at least 4 inches, maybe more like 6... but then in the afternoon, thawing, so i'm thinking it will all be gone soon, sad for me! Glad that you got out and about! A change of scenery is often such a good reminder ...other life exists!

    Mick, glad the Peskies are enjoying all their digs! Be careful and have fun putting down the flooring.. remember those tiles can be a little dangerous to pluck up...

    PPQ... good luck with all! Sounds like big doings! I wonder how we will all cope with going back to our old jobs,,, maybe a revolution?

    Det - loved the pics and the video... bought greens and all to make your recipe... thank you!

    Pauly. Det, Sam, Sending love... hope all is well. Hello to all else... cheers.

    The Light is shining ...
