    31 Oct

    Happy Halloween All...

    Just kicking off the thread for the week. The snow did arrive a day late but there's not much and it shouldn't stick around too long. I'm having a peaceful weekend and not thinking about work at all. Hope everyone has a great Sunday....PPQP

    Happy Halloween friends,

    We had a few light showers earlier today but I think the kids should have a dry evening to fill their treat bags

    PQ, glad you are enjoying your weekend & also glad the snow wasn’t problematic. Who needs that anyway? Ha ha!!!

    Cyn, saw your post on the other thread. Good to hear about your decision to settle down in one place. It’s fun to travel but not constantly & you do want to be around your own stuff, I get that.
    The bike is good, surprisingly! It was fairly inexpensive, ordered it from Costco & put it together. My feet are seriously appreciating the rest
    The starter has provided me with two huge loaves of bread so far. I’ll probably get another loaf started in the next day or two, it’s a 2 day process because of the long resting time in the fridge 12-48 hrs (to develop that special flavor). I need to go to the Amish store & pick up more bread flour, don’t think I have a full 5 cups left in the bag. I bake the loaves in a long 13” bread pan so they’re huge!

    Mick, stinky weather still there huh? Sorry about that. Hopefully it will be sunny & dry by next weekend for your trip.
    We are supposed to have 2 nights in the 30’s next week although not quite freezing yet. I’m taking the outside water can in from the chicken yard so it’s doesn’t crack (made of heavy plastic). Then I have to get the heating base out of storage for their water can inside their house. Always something to do for them, haha!

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a safe night all!

    Hidy Ho ABerooooooos! oh my, what a whirlwind as usual lately for garlic-breath. I've worked 10-days straight now which is a record for this year. Be nice to get some consistency since
    this week is looking slow, but that's ok as I have a ton of editing and marketing to do.

    PPQ, thanks for booting us up. Mick, is vehicle theft a biggie in your area?
    Lav, we watched a show about really artisinal sourdough bread and now I'm wanting to give it a go even though it's not something I normally eat... still sounds fun and I adore a really good
    sourdough. I suppose I'll need to find some starter...hmmm..

    Girly spent the weekend having fun with friends and it's great to see her socializing again. The two of us got dressed-up and went dancing on Sat night for the first time in a year and
    really had a blast, so that was a nice diversion.

    I may even have time to get my buttocks back into the gym this week which would be grand.

    any holiday adventures/pictures anyone?

    be well m'loves!

    I went to the Cinema the other day. The man sat in front of me had his dog with him. The dog seemed to be really engrossed in the film. He was laughing and smiling throughout the movie. When the film ended I said to the owner "This might sound wired but your really seemed to enjoy that." "Yes I was surprised too, He hated the book".



    hiya Lav ,hows you then ? hope all good ...so you are enjoying the bike ? good for you...weather still grim..

    Mae all -

    Mick, so sorry about all that rain! Sheesh! Time for it to move on!

    Det, wonderful to hear from you, and congrats on having some fun in the midst of all that work... ��

    Lav, thanks for looking back at my post - I hardly know what day of the week or what date it is anymore... the sourdough sounds terrific, congrats. And those chickens are so lucky to have you care for them! Glad the bike is working out, nice.

    PQ, hoping your weekend was happy, and there are no surprises today...

    Greetings to Pauly, Sam and all who stop by...

    I really messed up my schedule, and it involved a good friend who was going to help me out by taking me to the DMV today, until I realized that the DMV is closed on Mondays, and the appointment I made is for tomorrow... for heaven's sake, I feel that I am barely functional. So I redirected for tomorrow, paid the extra taxes today so that there won't be a STOP again when I try to get the registration. Made the transportation plans, etc. etc. So, crossing fingers that I can keep my wits about myself better in the coming days. All the details are really getting the better of me....
    Wishing all well!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...you're really getting hammered with the weather. How is the back yard landscaping holding up? Just a bit of snow hanging around and our temps were a high of 32F. It's supposed to warm up for the rest of the week so it all should go.

    Lav...sounds like our weather is pretty similar. Yup, it's time to switch over to winter planning. We turn our clocks back next weekend. Not looking forward to coming and going in the dark.

    Det...good to see you popping in. If it doesn't rain it pours, just ask Mick. At least you've got some time to work on the other things now. Sounds like you had a good weekend.

    TG...no surprised today, was actually busy with hockey registration so that helped the day go by fast. Glad you were able to sort the taxes out what a pain. I'm sure things will settle down for you soon.

    Nothing new going on here. One of the boss candidates turned down the job and the other one is thinking about it. What does that mean? Maybe the ex-boss shouldn't have showed them around. LOL
    Hello to Pi, Sam and Pauly. Have a good night all.....PPQP

    Good evening friends,

    Coolish here today, no rain. Mud is in the process of drying after 4+” of rain last week, haha!

    Det, wow you really have been busy, good for you!
    Get yourself a package of starter from www.culturesforhealth.com
    They have all kinds, I use the San Francisco style. I just put a half cup of starter in my oat waffle batter so we had very tasty waffles for dinner
    Glad things are going so well for you & yours now!

    Mick, yep I am cycling in comfort, no bumpy roads or cold wind in my face, Lol
    I ordered some dry weather for you - should be there soon

    Cyn, I think. Yuo have overworked your poor brain this past year +.
    Go easy on yourself & things will get done when they get done

    PQ, yep time change this coming weekend, geez it suddenly seems real that winter will be here before we know it, geez.
    Is there anyone you know who could fill that open job who isn’t a total idiot?? Haha.

    Hello to the. Missing friends & I’ll wish everyone a nice night!

    Hiya all..hope you are all well. I've been up all night with toothache so sitting in the dentist at the moment it's the same tooth as before so not impressed.
    Take care all.

    MAE ALL...

    WOW, you'd think it was a summer day here today. Bright and sunny and about 58F. supposed to be nicer tomorrow.

    Lav...The accountant informed me that the 2nd candidate has accepted the job. I believe he will start on Nov 24th. The board still had said anything and our AGM is on the 18th. So will just wait and see what happens.

    Mick...Oh no, not a toothache. and especially the same one he worked on. I hope he's able to sort it out.

    Nothing much else is going on. Same old. Shout out to the others, have a good night all....PPQP
