    September 12

    Hey kids!

    Hereís the new thread for the week

    Nothing exciting going on with me today. I have been outside cleaning up some garden beds. The heat & humidity are due to return this week so I guess Iíll be back inside hiding. In the AC.

    Cyn, I am so grateful that you are OK after your excitement. Please take good care

    Hello to Mick, PQ, Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie.

    Wishing everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    Thanks for the new thread Lav...we could see snow by the end of the week. LOL

    TG...so good to hear from you, I've been worried. Sorry to hear about your ordeals and glad you are ok.

    Dealing with some family issues this weekend so apologies for not checking in. That, the covid crap, and boss resigning has got me spinning. I just keep telling myself I can't control what others do only how I react to things. A lot of deep breaths and being good to myself.

    Hope you all have a peaceful night....PPQP

    Re: September 12

    Greetings friends,

    Getting warmer & more humid just as promised. So what did I do? I baked bread, haha! Found a new recipe for whole grain spelt bread, it’s cooling on the rack now, smells good

    PQ, keep those deep breaths going. It’s true, we cannot manage anything or anyone but ourselves. Taking the best care of ourselves is all we’re expected to do.
    I can’t believe you have snow in the forecast, geez that is early!!!

    Mick, hope you’re home safe & sound. Glad the trip was good except for a bit of rain.
    I actually prefer to have a few days per week where I don’t have anything special to do, haha! Gives me time to think

    Pauly, you should pack your own pillow when you travel. I’ve been know to do just that, hate the neck pain.
    Your local Applebees must be charging city rates or something. We’ve never spent that much to eat there, especially with no booze. Who knows? Glad you were able to get to the beach for a few days.

    Cyn, hope you’re feeling a little better today & taking good care :HUG:

    Hello to Det, saw your fancy cabin pics - very nice!

    Hello to Sam & Pie.

    Have a decent night all!

    Lav

    PS: the smoke from the wildfires out west have reached us again making things a bit hazy, ugh.

    Heya ABerooooodles near and far!

    Walking funny after a particularly tough but good workout at the dojo last night. I taught the first hour which was fun and different.

    cyn, didn't hear about accident..? xxxxx hugs! my grandma is in hospital with a broken hip but so far, so good.

    Lav, how did the spelt bread turn out? I'm interested in that recipe if it's a winner

    Pauly, I hate eating out as it's so expensive and usually disappointing at the same time. Of course the wee-one prefers to always eat out. I recently made tuscan braised chicken
    with olives and fennel in a light broth which was super yummy, and she...... she..... (a hem...) put ketchup all over it! sometimes I just want to dig a hole and retire in it for a bit.

    had car trouble on Sunday but thankfully a couple of hours of barked knuckles and I got her back in shape

    Mick, grand van adventures on the horizon?

    well, off to business networking group, then a photoshoot of a condo, then some kind of healthy food that pairs well with ketchup.... grrrr

    be well loves!

    Re: September 12

    Greetings friends,

    Well summer has returned with all it’s heat & humidity ugh!
    We had to go back to the old home town today, YB had a meeting at the fire company. I took a drive around town while he was at the meeting. 18 years since we left there & everything is basically unrecognizable. We both grew up there, raised our kids there & now it’s just a damn mess. I drove past the house we sold 18 years ago when we came here & wanted to cry. We bought that house in 1985 from a couple of 80 year olds knowing that it needed a lot of work. We put the blood, sweat & tears & tons of money into fixing up that house & sold it at a good profit. It looked so good when we left & now it’s almost unrecognizable. The current owner has been (illegally) parking heavy work trucks in the long driveway & has ruined it - all you can see is two long ruts all the way to the back. Everything is overgrown & just nasty looking, how sad. I can’t imagine buying a house & just trashing it like that, WTH??
    Anywya, everything else is fine.

    Det, the spelt bread is semi OK. I need to tweak that recipe a bit before sharing it with anyone. It has a crumbly texture, not good for toasting. Taste was good, just need to figure out how to improve the texture a bit. I’ll give you a hint about the ketchup - buy an unsalted bottle, Heinz if you can find it. It has a sweeter flavor & everyone who eats here prefers it, Lol. My grandson put ketchup on grilled chicken this past weekend, Lol

    Mick, rain at your house? How unusual, haha!
    So is Julie happy to return to work at this point, retirement is coming soon

    Hello to Cyn, PQ, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Thinking of all of you!

    Have a good night all.

    Re: September 12

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for not checking in yesterday, had a sleepless night Sunday so came home early Monday and ended up sleeping 13hrs! Boss has basically checked out, oh wait he never really checked in. I find it so frustrating not knowing what I can or cannot do as far as renting for events or client programs. I will be glad when Oct 1st gets here. There's talk of Alberta going to another lock down and mandatory work from home again. Boss asked the childcare director if she wanted to be on the hiring committee for the new GM and she said yes. Thank god, someone with some sense.

    Mick...glad the trip was a good shakedown for the van and things went smoothly. Hope you get at least one more trip in. You may be getting rain but they're forecasting snow for tomorrow. Not much but there's a cold front coming down. Low tonight is 33F. Going to have to rethink my wardrobe.

    Det...busy as always good to hear. Sorry about the car trouble. Glad you were able to get it sorted.

    Lav...it's sad when people let their property go. I won't go back and look at the house I grew up in. I know there's been lots of changes to it and I'd like to remember it the way it was. Glad everything is ok with you.

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

    Hiya all. How are we today then?hope everyone is doing OK. Sunny here today,I've just got back From physio. Back is doing better but definitely not 100percent. Oh well it's something I have to live with I guess. Rabbits are outside doing their best to eat all the grass.

    Hiya lav ..how are you doing ?hope you are good. I know that feeling when you put your heart and soul into a property...and then later on you see it ruined. Not changed..but simply ruined. I had a house in Southport and the garden was 96 feet long.I took a lot of time and trouble to keep it good but when I went back it was a complete shambles. And so the world goes round you take care.

    Hiya ppqp how are you today then,?hope you are OK.dont try and think their job for them. Someone somewhere is on a larger wedge of money to fix that. Take care.

    Hiya pauly det and teegee hope you are all doing good

    Take care all
