    MAE ALL...

    Mick...sounds like all's right in your world today. Going to be a tough one for Julie to get back in the swing of things, good luck to her. After 20C yesterday, woke to a Winter Wonderland this morning. It's been snowing since 6am and is supposed to go all day. Seems like a Nintendo Sunday to me LOL

    Greetings all!

    Mick, your day sounds good & well organized as usual

    PQ, Merry Christmas???? Sorry about the April snow, just doesn’t seem right
    I hope you had fun with the Nintendo today.

    Kids have all gone home & I spent the afternoon out in the yard putzing around, nothing special. We’re due for our 2nd shots of vaccine tomorrow morning. Plan to do nothing for a day or two depending on side effects. Better than getting covid for sure.

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Cyn, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Greetings friends,

    Nice day here weather wise
    We did get our 2nd shots this morning, no problems so far, hope it stays that way.

    Mick, yes, the house is quiet without the boys here haha! My dog has done a good job cleaning up crumbs left behind so I don’t even have to vacuum, LOL
    Glad you’re enjoying nice weather too. I hope Julie’s day went well.
    I had to do some watering outside for my little wildflower seedlings, no rain due until Wednesday I believe.

    PQ, How much snow did you get?

    Cyn, I hope your numerous projects are behaving for you

    hiya pauly how are you then?hope ll is well with you .

    right good people have a nice day ...

    A doctor was having an affair with his nurse. Shortly afterward, she told him she was pregnant. Not wanting his wife to know, he gave the
    nurse a sum of money and asked her to go to Italy and have the baby there.

    "But how will I let you know the baby is born?" she asked.

    He replied, "Just send me a postcard and write 'spaghetti' on the back. I'll take care of expenses."

    Not knowing what else to do, the nurse took the money and flew to Italy.

    Six months went by and then one day the doctor's wife called him at the office and said "Dear, you received a very strange postcard in the mail today from Europe, and I don't understand what it means."

    The doctor said, "Just wait until I get home and I will explain it to you."

    Later that evening the doctor came home, read the postcard, fell to the floor with a heart attack. Paramedics rushed him to the ER. The lead
    medic stayed back to comfort the wife. He asked what trauma had precipitated the cardiac arrest.

    So the wife picked up the card and read, "Spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti; two with meatballs, two without."

    One day, Gramma sent her grandson Little Johnny down to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner. As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and hightailed it for Gramma's kitchen.

    "Well now, where's my bucket and where's my water?" Gramma asked him.

    "I can't get any water from that water hole, Gramma" exclaimed Little Johnny. "There's a BIG ol' alligator down there!"

    "Now don't you mind that ol' alligator, Johnny. He's been there for a few years now, and he's never hurt no one. Why, he's probably as scared of you as you are of him!"

    "Well, Gramma," replied Little Johnny, "if he's as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!"

    As a mother was bribing her little boy with a quarter so he would behave, she said, "Why do I always have to pay you to be good; why can't you be good for nothing like your father?"

    A lady noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale, sucking in his stomach.

    Thinking he was trying to weigh less with this maneuver, she commented, "I don't think that's going to help."

    "Sure it will." he said. "It's the only way I can see the numbers."

    Mae everybody, Mick how does Julie feel about being at work again? Lb is still doing her job from home, think she'll freak out when they have to go into the office again, she's having a hard enough time with her job, it's a call center for auto loans and she gets yelled at alot poor thing, she lets it get to her, Lav, glad you got your second shot without any problems, PQ, I seen it snowed in Colorado here and I can't even imagine, although when I lived in Utah it snowed on memorial day once-that was weird, much love to all and wishes for a great BF day for us all
    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!

    oopsie... I'm so frazzled here I accidentally deleted my post. ack!

    ahem...

    Ahoy ABerooooskies near and far!

    glad all are hanging in best we can and Julie's in good hands.

    zooming like a madman still doing marketing full force and managed to line up a handful of shoots for the next week and a half and trying to add more. I'll get there one
    way or another dang it.

    Got out to the tulip festival last weekend as an early Mum's Day thing and it was so pretty. A few pics here:

    PICS Shared album - London Lewis - Google Photos

    Made the mistake of watching a bit of the news yesterday.. oh boy. that was a mistake. I'm better off stressing over work.

    hmmm... I'd better make myself do a meditation before i get more stressed and can't sleep again. (someday I'll get smarter).

    I wish you all a pleasant and vibrant afternoon!

    be well loves

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...all good here, just a little busy. Yesterday was a busy day for me, had 3 programs to set up and when I was finished I turned off my laptop. I thought you just got new glasses? Good idea keeping quiet about some of the decisions at Julies job. LOL Your yard looks great and I bet those peskies want to get at the new lawn.

    Lav...we got about 6 inches and it's all gone now. We're heading up to 18C tomorrow and then Thursday will be a repeat of Sunday. Only difference is it's supposed to stay cooler for a couple of days. At least we might get some moisture in the ground before I plant the garden. I think we've decided to just make it maintenance free and plant sunflowers. Glad you got your 2nd shot, you don't usually have issues with vaccines do you?

    Pauly...sorry LB is having a tough time with her job, I can just imagine how frustrated people calling in could be. Snow in April isn't unusual for us, it's just that March was so nice we were all hoping it'd be over and done with. We can get some wicked blizzards on May 24th long weekend, the official kickoff to camping.

    Det....now that looks like spring, great pics. You do sound a little stressed and I'm sure deleting your post didn't help. Yep, forget about the news and concentrate on work. I only listen to the Alberta updates just to see if they're restricting anything further.

    Got a couple of follow up things to do for work so must get back at it. Hope you all have a great day....PPQP

    Re: April 18th

    Good evening all,

    Well, I was feeling a little headachey last night before bedtime & checked my B/P. I’ve never seen it so high, it almost hit the ceiling! Scared me so I took an extra double dose of my morning diuretic. not caring if it kept me up all night. I slept thru & it was mostly better this morning. Checked it a few times during the day & it’s real low now but I still have the headache so I guess the vaccine is responsible, who knows? Still glad I got it though, just don’t lkike being scared like that.
    We had to go get chicken feed today & stopped at an Amish grocery store that sells their own homemade peanut butter, yum.

    Mick, hope the n ew glasses are awesome. I need some myself, have been too lazy.
    Good to stay out of Julie’s work stuff I guess. We just had a similar discussion today that neither one of us could survive a day back at our old jobs, things have changed way too much, haha!
    I love having a dog or two to clean the floors after the kids have been here, LOL

    Pauly, I guess you can go for the vaccines now too - anyone 16 & over can go. Get yourselves appts & get it done. You’ll feel safer, honestly!

    Det, love your flower pictures, gorgeous! Great that you are finding business, I know it’s not easy. Don’t forget to be proud & give yourself a pat on the back! You’ve come a long way Take some time to focus & breathe!

    PQ, we supposedly are getting an Arctic blast on Thursday. Now I have to drag plants inside & cover others if I want them to survive.
    A garden full of sunflowers sounds nice, love them.
    I don’t always have issues with vaccines, just a few have been problematic. I had to have a series of 3 thyphoid shots before nursing school (for some damn reason). They all caused a fever & lethargy for a few days. Flu shots are jjust a sorm arm (depending on who gave me the shot). Some people are just bad at giving shots like pharmacists, haha!

    Cyn, thinking of you friend

    Helllo to Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!
    Lav
