    Re: April 18th

    Mae all - so sorry to be away... long days here, and I seem to forget to communicate...

    Lav, which vaccine did you have? I got the first shot of Moderna, and I had a bad headache for days as my only symptom. I am supposed to have my second next week, if I am still here in the east... I think it might be worth staying for the shot, with all the variants and stuff going on... and having to drive cross-country... Hope you are feeling better today.

    Mick, so nice to hear about your beautiful yard and the peskies. How is Julie feeling about being back at work? Did you say that she is going to retire soon? Glad to hear you wore a hat when you were out and about...

    Pauly, so sorry to hear about Lb... that's hard to be yelled at all day... hope you are staying well - but like Lav said... get the jab!

    Det, so good to hear from you... sending you good wishes and best of luck to get more shoots lined up. Remember to send good vibes out so that you can attract good things back in -- you so deserve to have good stuff flowing your way! Raising the vibe and sending it to you -

    PPQ, sheesh, that pic was a heart-breaker! I was glad to hear that it had already melted.... I also love the idea of a collection of sunflowers... sounds cheerful.

    Well, I may be getting the legal docs in a few days... I was actually able to talk to a human in the county courthouse, and it sounds like my case was reviewed and I will get the docs soon. I can't tell you how that has changed my anxiety level... I guess I didn't ever realize how nervous I was about this whole thing. So now I can start to plan my trip out west... need to mail some boxes and put another load back into storage, and then pack the car and drive... I was afraid that I was going to be in limbo forever...

    Wishing all well - and vaccinated ...

    Re: April 18th

    Hello and how are we today then? Hope everyone is well well. Bit of a panic yesterday I bought a load of geranium plants in their little pots all sitting in the kitchen on the floor waiting to go out and yes you guessed it Bonnie decided she was going to have a party she managed to push the conservatory door open into the kitchen and proceeded to eat about 11 leaves. When you read all the books it says geraniums are highly poisonous to rabbits so I was giving her all sorts of food grass water etc to try and flush it out of her to the extent I'm checked her at midnight 1 and 2 this morning all she wanted to do was eat full stop up as bright as a lark this morning she is doing well unlike me sleep springs to mind. The horses are in the fields today for the first time they are really bouncing about enjoying themselves.
    Hiya lav how are you today? hope everything is ok with you. I take it still no side effects from the jab
    Hiya teegee how are you today question mark are things settling down with you? Hope you're feeling better from the Moderna job. I get my next one on the 11th of May the AstraZeneca. You asked how long has Julie got left before she retires? She has as4 teen months 3-weeks and 1 and 1/2 Days and not counting she will have done 38 years in the prison service 13 more than me me but I did 12 in the army so she has certainly seen some changes. And definitely not for the better in a lot of cases take care and look after yourself
    Hiya ppqp how are you today then question mark hope everything is well in sunny calgary. Hope work is ok for you take care.
    Hiya Pauly you doing ok? Hope so you putting any plants in this year?
    Right folks I need to go it's 5:05 and I'm on tea making duties

    Re: April 18th

    Good evening friends,

    Feeling better today, still a bit of a headache but it very well could be weather related. B/P is back in the good range, thank goodness for that.
    Just finished bringing in potted plants & covering the others since we are expecting a freeze tonight. Stupid weather for this time of year. I’m trying to get back into sewing & embroidery mode after some time away from that. The lack of planned craft shows has been holding me back.

    Cyn, I had 2 doses of Moderna. I believe you need to have 2 doses of the same vaccine to be effective. If you can get it before you start heading west it would be a good thing, keep yourself safe.
    Glad to hear the paperwork saga is almost over. I can’t even imagine the tension that must create. I hope your trip west is smooth & easy & you get a chance to breathe normally & relax

    Hello to PQ (getting your weather ), Pauly, Sam, Det & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: April 18th

    Mae all,

    Good news ,Lav, the legal docs have been sent to me - hopefully will get them tomorrow. So now it's up to getting banking done, which is what I needed these for... if I can find a bank that's open- sheesh!! And by the time I get all that done it will be the 27th and time for my 2nd vaccine, so no worries, I will have it before I head out. Hope you get involved in your embroidery work again... your things are so beautiful... I may have to get you going on another project...

    Mick, hope you got caught up on sleep - yep, the pets, they seem to be able to sleep through anything, while we caretakers suffer. wow, that's an amazing amount of time to work in the prison system... I bet Julie has stories she could tell...not too long before she retires, then you'll be off on a holiday every other week!

    PPQ, I hope your work is smoothing out a bit... and thanks for the cold and sleet, but you can have it back now. Stay warm!

    Pauly, hope the the GPs are still having a fine time and entertaining everyone... take care..

    Det, more jobs on the way? Hope so! Sending you light...

    Huge storm this afternoon, scary winds, century-old trees coming down, hail, torrential rain, the whole impressive theatrics... whew, I was out driving in it, and it reminded me to have rain gear at the ready for my trip... good reminder that not everyday may be sunny.

    Wishing all a good day tomorrow... hold the light...

    Re: April 18th

    Hello and how are we today then? hope all is well. I'm doing this on my phone so apologies for any mad bad or sad grammar punctuation words that are inappropriate or phrases that don't make sense. Actually last it doesn't matter because I don't really make sense a lot of the time anyway. I've been in the garden most of the day planting and messing about the temperature today is 32 degrees it is absolutely crazy yesterday it was so frosty and today it is absolutely boiling. I just watched two red kites the birds that is not kids with box kites soaring on the thermals really smart. Julie isn't at work tomorrow and the weather is supposed to be the same so I think we may go out somewhere.
    Hiya lav how are you feeling now then? It probably is down to the vaccine that to be honest with you a small price looking at the papers over here today so far they have vaccinated over 33 million people in this country and since they started vaccinating people the hospitalization cases has dropped by 98% our local figures today day are 42 positive cases in 10000 so things are definitely coming down the scary bit is everyone is clamoring to go abroad on holiday and the government is now being pressurized into to considering this passport seriously indeed. Yes the new glasses should be quite good 7 days it will take for them to be made etc stop you take good care of yourself

    Hiya ppqp how are you today then question mark hope all is well with you you. Would you like some of this glorious sunshine we have here I really keys now I know but never left happy to share. Yes the new glasses I'm getting our sunglasses I'm at the stage now on my eyes hurt when I'm driving so I'm getting to pair of long-distance and one pair of readers. Hope everything is going ok with you over there you sound pretty busy don't forget the me time! Have a great day

    Hiya det how are you my friend? Hope everything is going well for you full stop at times it sounds like you are having it a bit difficult but the utmost respect to you you have stuck by your guns if you'll pardon the pun and not resorted to old habits the utmost respect to you my friend you have come a long way take care and stay safe

    Hiya Pauly how are you today then? Hope things are looking a bit brighter for lb. Have you booked your vaccination yet? It honestly is a great relief when you do do take care and stay safe

    Hiya TG how are you today question mark hope things are running smoothly for you? I picked her Mark up the other day that you made about Wales being your motherland and I didn't know you were Welsh is that by descent? Hope today is a shiny Bright outlook for you keep smiling stay positive and take care

    Re: April 18th

    Greetings friends,

    Yes we had a frosty night, glad I brought my plants inside. Took them back out this morning then it started snowing - haha!! Only lasted about 10 minutes, it was a surprise. Plants will be coming back in for the night once again.
    Feeling better today, guess the vaccine has given up torturing me, Lol. Made a quick run to the market for some essentials, nothing else going on.

    Cyn, I think some of the banks have reopened around here. I’m sure you can get appointments for special things, call them.
    Glad you can get your 2nd dose on board before your trip, it’s important to keep you healthy & on the go

    Mick, YB did 30 years in the police dept & it felt like a sentence to me! He took that job the year after we got married so I wasn’t expecting to have to live with all that angst & ridiculous schedule. Sounds like you & Julie have done more than your fair share as well. I was happy to hear our son is planning retire from the fire dept in another 8 years. He’s been there 17 years already. He’ll have plenty of things to do after he’s done there. About international travel, I’d say not yet!! Maybe this time next year will feel safer, who knows?

    Hello PQ, got the snow you sent, haha! Hope your day was good & hope your laptop has survived whatever was wrong yesterday

    Det, hope things are going well for you today. Stay strong & we’re here to listen if needed!!

    Hello to Pauly, Sam & Pie!

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: April 18th

    Mae all -

    Mick, yes, I am a truly a British Isles girl... family name Dunbar (scotts), mother name Rhys (welsh) and probably some Irish and aEnglish thrown in as well, but please don't hold that against me. I have never done the "tests" and probably never will... we have the names and dates of our forbearers well before anyone came over the pond... I often identify more with your island than my own continent... (shhhh.Don't tell...)

    Lav, snow here today, a little dispiriting...

    PPQ, Det, Pauly and all others, hoping all is well...

    Hard day for me... the anniversary of the middle-of-the-night call when I heard (At 3 AM) that my husband had been put on a respirator. The beginning of a new part of the Covid journey for me. I know that we all (including me) want to move on from this horror, but in some respects I have to ask the world to have a little patience for the more than 500,000 families who have lost a loved one... these anniversaries are meaningful for us, even when we don't quite understand the meaning... just that it was momentous...

    Sending everyone so much love... take care...

    Re: April 18th

    Good evening friends,

    Nice day here after another frosty night. I hear we will be hitting the 80’s next week, crazy. Went to an Amish greenhouse today & came home with more plants. I can’t help myself, haha!

    Cyn, I’m sure those memories will be with you for a while. I’m sorry you have to deal with them on your own. Please reach out to us for a virtual group hug
    True that there’s half a million other families going through the same thing, my heart breaks at the thought. How I wish we could pull our group in a little tighter & help you. Thinking of you always with much love.

    PQ, how’s the laptop? Any chance of logging on tonight?

    Mick, I have seen that show, interesting!
    My son does not have to retire at that age but he can retire with benefits if he chooses. Any more promotions will put him into an office/paperwork environment & that would not suit him. He was a hyperactive kid & he still likes to be busy doing stuff, haha. He’s starting an online school next month to obtain his masters degree in fire science & organizational management or something. I don’t have to pay for it so I’m glad. He is working this weekend at our county fire school teaching something. I think he’ll end up working there when he retires from the DC fire dept.
    You manage to keep yourself busy one way or the other don’t you?

    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: April 18th

    Is it just us today? Thanks to you both for the support... over that dreaded hump, now must stitch myself together for this last week of getting everything done and getting on the road... I wish I were a little brighter in the brain department... I have made a couple of foolish mistakes (forgetting things that now require me to drive a couple of hours to get it right, hrumph.) Getting the estate banking thing going, and all the legalities really have got me down... and usually this is my thing... but now now.

    Anyway, one foot on front of the other... I will make it.

    Mick, such stories from the prison! Glad to hear that today you actually ended up reading in the end... but what did you read? Enquiring minds...

    Lav, glad that you are getting more plants... since I can't plant anything, you can just call those your "Cindy" plants. Interesting about your son... I have often wondered how different people end up in those jobs.

    Hello to all out there - hoping you are keeping on... I saw the burgeoning moon the other night through a skylight - beautiful.

    To the light...
