    Re: September 12

    Evening greetings friends,

    Crazy but we were socked in with a heavy fog/haze this morning thanks to the wildfires out west. The air burned your eyes & nose, yuck. Felt bad for letting the chickens out but I hate keeping them cooped up all day because they get cranky. The sun was dark orange in color, same as it was last night at sunset, weird.

    PQ, I hope you don’t have to go thru another lockdown but if you do, you have experience this time. You have already figured out how it works.
    What’s the point of the boss staying another 2 weeks? He does nothing that I can see I hope you guys find someone more interested in the job with better abilities.
    I’ve gotten over the shock of seeing our old house yesterday, it was rather disturbing & pretty pathetic.

    Mick, the people we sold our old house to are not the ones who currently live there. They came in a few years later when our buyers were transferred somewhere else. Whoever this person is he’s a real pig!
    I’ll just never understand some people & their motives.
    Glad your back is still improving, keep treating it like a delicate little baby

    Hello to Cyn, Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie - thinking of all of you

    Have a nice night all. I’m going to try to walk a little if the air has cleared enough.

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...glad you had decent weather today. No snow for us but it rained most of the morning and the temp sat around 42F. We're going to warm up a bit for the next couple of days but I won't be surprised to see snow soon. Boss had a board meeting, first one since he resigned. He suggested we push back all rentals and programs until Nov 1st. Board wasn't too pleased with that idea.

    Lav...I guess he actually has to do some work for the board now. LOL I am basically just ignoring everything, no sense worrying about it. What will be will be. The province is making an announcement tonight about covid. I don't think they'll go for a lock down but maybe implement the vaccine passport.

    It was a good day today. Quiet and no drama. Hope everyone has a good night....PPQP

    Re: September 12

    Mae all - extra hellos for the last few days as well... I have been busy busy getting corporate taxes in, finding all the receipts for the money I should be reimbursed from the festival, and researching cars...the days fly by, and I am still falling into bed exhausted, but slowly catching up. The hip is better each day... this morning I actually ran a bit to flag down the Fed Ex truck that had an important piece of mail for me!

    Lav, so sorry to hear about the old house, that would be a heartbreaker... so glad that you enjoy yours now. Good luck with the spelt bread - if anyone can figure it out it's you!

    Pauly, so good to hear from you, and glad that you got a little beach vacay!

    Det, congrats on all you are accomplishing, and don't take girly's palate too seriously... kids, you know... best of luck to you for all your endeavors...

    Mick, so glad the first trip was a success... good luck with healing your back... maybe be a little careful...? oh, never mind.

    PPQ, I can imagine you are being tossed emotionally with all the work changes... stay strong! And snow? Sheesh, waaaaay too early...

    Hello to all dropping by... take care...

    Re: September 12

    Greetings friends,

    I got a text from my oldest grandson last night at 9:30 - ‘Can you drive us to school in the morning?’ What?? OK. Last minute changes to make in my plan but got it done without any drama. My son & daughter-in-law seem to have their heads up their a$$es these days, too busy to arrange rides for their kids, geez. Had a big thunderstorm last night & we’re supposed to have another this evening.

    PQ, you just may witness the boss doing more work in his last two weeks there than you’ve ever seen, Lol
    Hope you had another drama free day. I did read somewhere today that western Canada got some snow - hope it stays away from you for now.

    Cyn, glad to hear you are ticking things off your to-do list. I wouldn’t recommend running right now while you’re healing, walking fast is not too bad, haha.
    I’m trying to think through the spelt bread recipe & figure out how to make it moister & hold together better. I’ll try again next week most likely.

    Mick, the heat just doesn’t seem to want to go away & Fall officially arrives next week, weird. Must be hot up in the loft?
    My cardiologist said to walk an hour daily so that’s what I am trying to do. I am a few minutes over already today, haha.

    Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a nice night.

    MAE ALL...

    Well the boss is back to his regular self. Took the afternoon off and is taking Monday off as he's off to Manitoba again. No lockdown and since the province said they wouldn't implement a Covid Passport they have implemented a proof-of-vaccination program that's optional for certain services. In other words it's up to the individual business to implement and enforce the proof-of-vaccination program. Once again the government doesn't take any responsibility. We have shut down all our programs again.

    TG...no running for you. You do sound busy but one by one things are getting done. Thankfully no snow showed up.

    Mick...wow, you guys are really going to town with cleaning out the house. Are you having a big garage sale to help pay for the van? LOL Hope you're able to get some detecting in on Sunday.

    Lav...the grandson had to text! I would be a little concerned about what's going on with your son & DIL. No rain or snow in the forecast for now. It actually got quite warm out today. Boss is busy cleaning out his office. He did say he was making password lists to give to those who need them. These are all personal accounts that he set up. On Oct 1st at 5:01 I'm cutting off his access to our server. LOL It was a quiet, drama free day and I'm on my own tomorrow, heaven!

    Wishing the whole gang a peaceful night....PPQP

    heya ABeroooo kiddos!

    a quiet moment here with no shoots today which is allowing me to catch up on various things including updating my audio recording abilities for video and other technical issues.
    Got a message yesterday that my Pittsburgh shoot is back on, so I'm on the edge of my seat to get more details today.

    Tonight: pan roasted salmon, roasted red bell pepper sauce (capsicum for Mick) on gluten-free pasta, and tomato/basil/mozzarella on the side.

    Tree, sounds like your health is picking up which is grand!

    PPQ, I'm sorry to hear that. one of the upsides to being a freelancer is no boss of any kind. that's truly a good thing in most ways, but believe me this is a challenging existence in other ways.

    Pauly, awesome beach pics of the kiddos on IG!

    any big weekend plans anyone? we are thinking about the FAN-X comic convention as it's related to sci-fi, but the lowest tickets are 60 buck a pop so .... hmmmm.....

    be well loves!

    Re: September 12

    Good evening friends,

    Nothing exciting going on here as usual. Picked up an embroidery job today so I’ll probably get it done this weekend since we never do weekend things anymore, haha!!
    Cloudy all day which kept it cooler but it’s supposed to brighten up for the next few days.

    PQ, I’ll bet you can’t wait to see the last of the boss, Lol. I’m sorry but he sounds like a real useless turd to me.
    My DIL keeps her manic self busy with all kinds of dumb stuff & forgetting to arrange child care is typical. What can I say? I know my son is out of town more than he’s home because of the weird shifts he works & he’s got his head busy working on his masters degree.That’s why I’m actually glad the boys are old enough to know they can text me or call me if they need anything.

    Det, so you may be flying out to Pittsburgh in the future? That’s only a 6 hr or so drive from me, haha! That’s pretty cool.
    Your dinner sounds nice, I just pulled. Out leftovers, Lol

    Mick, maybe you can put the rabbits out on guard duty to keep the van safe in the meantime.
    I don’t completely clean out garden beds in the fall anymore since I learned that leaving some plants in place provides shelter for some of our pollinators. Looks a bit messy but I don’t worry about that.

    Hello to Cyn, Pauly, Sam &. Pie. Hope everyone is doing. OK

    Have a nice night all.

    Re: September 12

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...saw your light on when I checked in earlier and thought I'd wait for your post. I don't do weekend things either. LOL You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to Oct 1st and don't apologize, that's the mildest description of the boss I've heard all day. And believe me, I've been hearing it all day. I did absolutely no work today. LOL Building superintendent, who is just a sweetie, said he had to leave at noon and I said no problem. Program coordinator showed up when she shouldn't have. Took me about 2 hours to get her out the door! That left the regular gang and we basically sat around trying to decipher the new restrictions. When our leader shut everything down all the other community associations elected to implement the so called vaccine passport and they're all open for business. (#%&_&W_)(& Got a call from a long term (25 years) renter who is just livid. She also happens to live beside the president of the board. She's emailing and calling him tonight about what's going on at the community centre. She is my #1 supporter and with all the negativity she's gotten about the community centre from her clients she feels the board needs to know what's going on at the centre. She'll address everything and that'll take the pressure off of me to try and convey things. Sorry that was so long but I really do feel a load off. I'm glad the boys are old enough to reach out to you. I was able to remove myself and the kids from my manic ex and they didn't know anything about it until they were able to understand the situation and make their own informed choices.

    Det...what! a quiet moment! LOL Of course being you, you put it to good use. I'm excited about the Pittsburgh shoot for you. I'm jealous of your dinner plans for tonight. I have often thought about the freelancer life, I did have my own company for awhile but was married at the time with a steady income coming in. I would probably worry myself to death going that route. LOL Whatever you decide for the weekend, have a good one.

    Mick...the rabbits have rights to the back And there's the method to your madness with the new landscaping. Yes, I will be glad to see the door close behind the boss. As the IT Manager (I think that's the purple hat) I will definitely be in touch with Bob (president of the board) before Oct 1 to find out what the protocol is. I believe there isn't one and will propose my own at that time. Sorry to hear about the contractor's cancellation, I think Lav has the right idea, make those peskies work for their rights. LOL

    Assuming no news is good news with the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP
