    25th July

    Hello friends,

    Itís Sunday & time for a fresh thread
    Just had a big thunderstorm & now the sun is back. Sounds like a familiar story around here. Got my daisy bed cut back this morning, the blooms had all faded so it was time. I baked up a pasta dish with ground turkey for an easy dinner & now I sit, haha!

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...thanks for starting up this weeks thread. Sounds like all is good in Lav land. Been puttzing today and thankfully didn't hear from the prog coord so her lessons are done and she's off on vaca. I wish we'd get a big thunderstorm, break up some of this heavy air. I'm into work tomorrow, holding down the fort since nobody else will be there. LOL We've had some more vandalism in the garden, stealing potting out plants! Come on, veggies I could understand.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Good evening friends,

    Wow, we ended up having 2” of rain yesterday & we didn’t need all that. Still hot & humid today so I don’t know what the point was. I just heard the smoky air is on the way back too, yuck.
    Our raspberries are coming in nicely so I made a cobbler this afternoon, yum.

    PQ, I hope you had a lovely day with no one else in the office today, Lol It doesn’t get much better than that.
    Sorry to hear the thieves are back in the garden.

    I see Mick has started another thread so I’ll go say Hi to him.

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...we could sure use some rain here. It's hot, heavy and smoky! Yuck. I just feel drained. Everything is an effort. I did get a bit of work done but am still sorting out the office. It's hard to work with a mess all around you. I was definitely more productive working from home. LOL I hope your smoky air moves out quickly.

    Mick...I'll respond to you on this thread. Thanks for the pics they are just super. Sounds like you had a nice relaxing day. Hope your eyes are better, it just amazes me at some of the spots I don't even think of applying sunscreen.

    Made a tuna casserole when I got home and it's beeping at me to take it out of the oven, so must go.
    Shout out to everyone else.
    Have a great night all...PPQP

    Re: 25th July

    Evening greetings friends,

    Still hot & humid after all that rain, whatever!
    Meeting friends for lunch tomorrow, looking forward to that. Apparently the deer decided to snack on my strawberry plants overnight. The berries are long gone so they chewed off the tops of the plants, haha!!

    PQ, the extreme weather really takes all your energy, don’t you think? I got out this morning for a haircut & came straight home. No desire to go anywhere else or stay outside.
    Hopefully today was more productive for you at work. I’m dreaming about cool & clear air & I bet you are as well.

    Pauly, I started this thread so I’m staying on it LOL

    Mick, what’s up? I’ll have to go check you thread

    Hello to Det & Cyn, hope you are both well.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...it's been awhile since we had 2 threads started, sure we can all figure it out. LOL How are things? Are you sweltering down there? Hoping that life is just being life and no drama going on. We're always thinking of you.

    Lav...so do you think they could smell the strawberries and were trying to find them? Isn't it great to be meeting up with friends for lunch? I'm not there yet, still have a week to go for my 2nd dose to be fully effective. Our covid cases are rising in Calgary, it was to be expected, but so far they're not attributing any of it the Stampede. Apparently they sent 71 positive people home out of 500,000. Gotta say that's not bad. Had a very productive day at work, ignored the mess and got it done. Tomorrow I'm ready to start tackling the sorting again and then call it a day. LOL We've had a bit of reprieve with the weather and smoke but it's heading back on Thursday so will be hibernating again.

    Mick...got the two threads sorted out? LOL You must be heading back soon.

    TG...thinking of you and hoping you're being good to yourself well dealing with your workload.

    Det...hoping you're swamped with work, ecommerce learning, meetings and enjoying time with your besties.

    Sam...haven't heard from you for a bit. Busy time for you?

    Pi...it would sure be nice if you to dropped in. Don't need a life novel but a "I'm ok" would be nice.

    Ready to shut this extended appendage down and relax. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Mae all,

    Thanks for being patient with me... it's the way it will be for these next weeks... the musicians have arrived, I created over one hundred bag of goodies for the incoming orchestra Board and donors. Now only dozens and dozens of notes to be written before the Weekend performances
    , plus orchestra coffee, soloist travels, etc...

    Lav, the decor story was funny. The berry cobbler sounds delicious! How is you BP?

    PPQ, glad to hear you were knockong off work and elevating you foot... good luck!

    Pauly, so nice to hear from you ... how's things? Is it smoky down there? We had total smoke here for weeks, the. 2 monsoons, then Blue sky today!!! Miraculous!

    Mick, hoping all is well with you vacay... the pics were tremendous. Take care and enjoy!

    Hello to all, Det - hope work is picking up...

    Sending lots of support and energy... please know that I am thinking of you even when I can't post... will be back asap!

    Re: 25th July

    Good evening friends,

    Mick - NO to those kids jammies, LOL
    Welcome back home, sounds like yuo have a lot on your plate to keep you busy & out of trouble. We have severe storms (with tornado potential) moving in tomorrow (Thursday). Oh boy!!

    Cyn, sounds like you’re doing the work of a whole team of people, wow! Hope you are taking some breaks to catch your breath.
    The raspberry cobbler was good & it’s almost gone already. Last night’s BP was 155/80 - much improved for an evening reading for me lately. I hope it continues until I see the Cardiologist in September. I’m still not used to this low heart rate of 50 something, geez.

    PQ, the strawberries have been done for weeks so I don’t know what triggered the deer. It just seemed strange, they’ve never bothered them before.
    It was nice getting out with my old friends today. You really miss seeing real people after all this time, haha! The vaccination rates around here are pretty good compared to other areas. I know there’s a big spike of Covid cases down in DC where my son works unfortunately, not sure about their vaccine rates. It shouldn’t be so hard to convince people to go get a free shot to save their lives & others.

    Hello to Det & Pauly. How hot is it out west?

    Hello to Sam & Pie, check in please.

    Have a nice night all!
