    Re: 5 sept .

    Good evening friends,

    Well the clouds found us & we have a light rain at the moment. Nothing like the stuff we got last week!
    No holiday plans means I’m doing the minimum this weekend, haha! I did make Swedish meatballs today & now have some leftovers for the week, yay.

    Mick, I only wish I could get as comfortable as Bonnie appears to be, LOL. I’ve turned into a fidget, can’t sit still without changing position every few minutes. Joints & things tends to stiffen up quickly at this age. Glad you are resting your back this weekend, smart move.
    Will you have a news crew at the house when you bring your new van home? I think you should, it would be cool
    I just saw my niece posting more erroneous anti-vax BS & told her she was was just plain wrong. Now I will turn her FB feed off!

    PQ, how are your aches & pains & swellings these days?
    I think it is time to accept what we are dealing with as our new reality I’m sorry to say. We can’t turn the clock back but we can alter our course with good food & the right exercise & mostly trying to avoid injury. I just told YB to find someone who can put a wrought iron handrail up at our back door. He asked why - duh, to prevent falls???? It’s only one step up from the driveway then one more step up into the house & I have found myself wobbling there more than a few times. The handrail won’t be too helpful after I fracture a hip. I have noticed several people having a problem with that step over the years, it’s higher than an average step. I don’t want anyone falling out there!

    Hello to Cyn, & I am hoping you can get in touch with us soon. We miss you

    Hello to the rest of the gang & wishing everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...just call me gullible! LOL Quiet weekend here for me and am looking forward to the day off tomorrow. You take it easy cleaning out the van tomorrow. I think it's a perfect solution to all this covid craziness.

    Lav...aches & pains & swelling are worse since I've been sitting around doing nothing for 3 days. I will definitely have to figure out a new routine if I ever retire. I used to see commercials on tv about older adults and balance and would think really? Well, I believe it now. I find myself being very careful doing things I used to without even thinking about it. It sucks to grow old.

    Hope everyone else is doing ok. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 5 sept .

    hiya everyone ..how are we then ? hope all is well.cleaned the van out washed it and polished it ...Ithink Ill buy it myself .Another lovely day here again .Back is easing off slowly ,and getting better .pick the other one up tomorrow ,and fill it up with rubbish again ...then away on thursday .dont know where everyone is .

    hiya Lav ..how are you then ? yes you are right ..as age makes it way forward it takes longer to heal .no news crews tomorrow ..as for the anti vaxers ..I wonder if we hadnt of had the jabs ,how many more would have died ..talking about handrails ...when I got home after my brain blew up and my balance went they fitted a handrail up the stairs ,its amazing how Ieven now use it .so get that handrail up !!

    hya ppqp ..all good with you?yes I am dreading getting older .. once you get into a routine its ok ...the trouble is trying to let your body train your head as opposed to the other way around sitting around doesnt do good at all ..but to be fair neither does zooming around like a loony .its finding that balance.when you retire you could always come back and be either a boss or prog co-ord ..they seem to be pretty sedentary and part time .take care and be safe

    hiya everyone else how are we ?

    Re: 5 sept .

    Good evening Nesters,

    The Amish don’t celebrate Labor day so they’ve had yB running around all day. Even now he’s out delivering 500 ears of corn somewhere haha!
    I made my own celebration by making black bean burgers & baked some coffee cake muffins. I have to be out of here at 6 am to go wake up my grandsons & drive them to their different schools. I’ll coax them up with a nice muffin I don’t know why one of their parents can’t be there - they never tell me anything.

    PQ, I think the trick to staying safe at this age is to be more mindful of what we’re doing. It used to be OK to run around like an idiot to get everything done but not so much now. I am very mindful of stepping in & out of the shower, doing flights of steps especially when carrying something, etc. stay active but be more aware of surroundings!!
    I would invest in a pair or two of compression stockings of some sort to help with that swelling & maybe talk to your doc about a diuretic.

    Mick, YB is actually thinking about the railing I requested. As soon as the Amish guys are finished with their fields they look for other work so it will probably be one of them doing the job.
    After damn near killing myself falling down a flight of steps I am super careful & always use the railings. Good luck with your new van, I’m sure it will be super comfy & very smart looking.

    Cyn, are you OK?

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...I laughed out loud about your suggestion of coming back as a boss or prog coord. No you don't need a 2nd van, let it go. LOL Bet you're excited about tomorrow.

    Lav...stepping in & out of the shower was the first thing I was mindful of. LOL Stairs was number 2. I won't carry the laundry basket of towels downstairs anymore. I'm glad I just have to get myself up and off to work tomorrow and I don't have to be there till 9am! You are a good grandma.

    TG...thinking of you and hoping no news is good news.

    Shout out to Det, Sam, Pauly & Pi. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 5 sept .

    hiya all...one of the hottest days we have had....picked the van up this morning ..we have spent ll day sorting out putting stuff back in and my back is aching now ..but we have everything in it ..I said to Julie before ,I aint putting all this sh.t ack in ...she has just said to me ..so what was it that you never put back in ..Pondering it the following did not make it ..

    a sock ,2 bags of sweets a mat ,a shoelace a jacket 2 aaa batteries and a book ...oh and a pair of glasses .

    hiya Lav .how are you today then ...how did the burgers turn out then?hope that they were ok .I still run around like an idiot ..its just that I get lesss done because Ive forgotten what I was supposed to do ..hence the need for lists!!YB considering putting a rail up ..considering ??? he obviously hasnt done a risk assessment in his head ..the balance of no rail and you slipping and the resulting outcome for him..versus getting one of his mates to do it ..to me thats a nonstarter..the rail would have been up yesterday!!In the meantime have a good day

    hi ppqp..hows you then today ..hope all is well.how are the part timers doing?the boss and crew.hope you day was at the speed you wanted it to go ...hope you have a lovely day...

    Re: 5 sept .

    Good evening friends,

    First of all I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PAULY!!
    Check in & let us know what’s going on with you.

    I am tired but I accomplished my mission this morning. I got up at 5 am when it’s still completely dark outside, ugh. Got the boys to their schools on time, that’s all that counts
    I ended up going back into town later to get my hair cut, it was time.
    I’m hearing about another strong storm system moving in here tomorrow evening ~ swell.

    PQ, hope your day was good & without conflict.
    I’m glad we’re all looking out for our own safety. The last thing I want to do is become dependent on other people, no way. I don’t make a very good patient, go figure haha!!!

    Mick, time to rest your back now so you can enjoy your new home away from home on wheels
    The problem with YB is he has to overthink everything. In the meantime I will look out for myself, even if it means I have to slow down to teh speed of a slug, Lol. The railing will get done, eventually.

    Cyn, we’re thing of you with much love.

    Hello to Det, Sam, Pie & the birthday girl Pauly.

    Have a nice evening all!

    MAE ALL...

    It was basically a good day but felt a little bit longer than I would have liked it. Same old listening to people bitch that the boss and Program Coord aren't doing enough, bridge group wondering why they can't start again when other communities have had their programs running for a month, etc., etc., etc.

    Mick & Lav...glad all is good with you guys. I am bushed, can't quit yawning and need to get these eyes closed. I will post better (how's that for grammar) tomorrow.

    Have a good night all....PPQP
