    11.11

    Hello everyone how are we today? hope everyone is well and doing ok. I have just stopped, went to the remembrance service this morning, and then I have been sending and scraping down the work surfaces in the kitchen. I am probably about 1/3 of the way through it. Hopefully I will finish it by about Thursday full stop apologies for being a quick post but I need to go for a shower and get all of the dust off me! Take care look after yourselves

    Re: 11.11

    Greeting everyone,

    Thanks for the start up Mick although I think we’re a bit off on the date since today is the 14th. We forgive you
    I hope your sanding & scraping is keeping you out of trouble.

    Cloudy most of the day & cool, in the 40’s. I heard a rumor of possible snow the first week of December, I hope it’s wrong.
    Made a pot of soup today, perfect weather for that. Took a break from embroidery today to rest my brain & eyes, Lol

    Cyn, glad to hear you finally slept better & without nightmares. No one needs that!!
    I certain hope the weather stays clear enough for your journey. Weather predictions are often wrong, thank goodness. You take care!

    PQ, hope you’re OK. Check in when you can, please.

    Hello to Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 11.11

    For once, Lav, I moved my own post... sheesh, I totally forgot that I was posting late on a Saturday... so here is last night's!

    "Mae all -

    PPQ, hoping you are doing okay...

    Mick, wow, what you have been through! (And Julie too, I presume...). The human spirit is truly wonderful... and your determination as well. Well done!

    And Lav, what a story... so glad you have made a full recovery... So you got the beginnings of winter? After a rainy and blustery day yesterday, this morning was bright and lovely, then clouded over, and suddenly a huge thunderstorm hit... the power went out for awhile, but didn't take too long to come back. It made me a little concerned about my drive halfway across the country... I am hoping to do it sooner rather than later, and hoping no bad weather shows up suddenly!

    Last night I finally slept through the whole night, and no nightmares! Wonderful... that sure helps the general anxiety level. So maybe I'll do another avocado tonight...

    Hello to Det, Pauly, and all else popping in. The moon is gaining light each night...

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry I've been MIA but spent the weekend trying to figure out this Zoom sh*t for the AGM on Thursday. Did a couple of test runs with the board but still need to figure out the voting part.

    Mick...I'm ok with the 11-11 title. Makes me think about all the services I watched. Yup, back at work today, trying to setup everything for the new boss. Some of you must have rubbed off on my son, he's been in a cleaning mood for the past couple of days.

    TG...sorry to hear about the nightmares and glad you got through last night. Perhaps I'll try an avocado!

    Lav...tis the season for soup and embroidery. We managed to avoid the snow storm and just ended up with rain/sleet. Everyone around us got clobbered. I think it's our turn tomorrow as snow is expected over night. It was a really dreary, foggy day. Yuck. Hopefully we'll see some sun tomorrow.

    Once I get the AGM over with and the new boss settled in things should smooth out. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 11.11

    Good evening folks,

    Definitely feeling & looking fall-ish here today. Now they’re talking about a warm up coming, geez.
    We went & got our Moderna boosters today. Keeping the fingers crossed for an easier time without all the harsh side effects this time.
    I’m stitching icicles - if that makes any sense haha!

    Cyn, it probably doesn’t matter where we post - someone always sees it anyway
    Hope your day was good.

    Mick, sounds like. You’re making good progress in the kitchen. I think Julie must possess some saintly qualities
    Yesterday I made turkey noodle soup. I had roasted a turkey a fee days before & made bone broth from the carcass. It turned out good. Now we cruise along on leftovers for a while.

    PQ, there you are! Figured you were tied up with work stuff. Hope the snow turns out to be a small event. Hang in there friend, everything gets better eventually.

    Det & Pauly, hell to you. Sam & Pie, where are you?

    Nothing else exciting going on, have a nice night all!

    Lav

    MAE ALL...

    For not doing much all day it still felt productive. A dear friends husband pasted away on Remembrance Day and I just heard about it this morning. It kinda shook me up a bit. The ex-boss showed up today looking for the power cord to the laptop I want him to return. We did talk about the AGM and he's willing to host the Zoom meeting so the pressures off. Why couldn't he have said something earlier! I'll just be doing my normal making sure he does everything he's supposed to.

    Mick...did you get the work tops done today? It's not raining here and if it snowed there was very little signs of it, but boy is it windy. Just below freezing and a wind chill making it feel like 50F. The storm belted BC and to the north and east of me and has moved on. Yes, I saw the woman and the spay paint, honestly what's with people! The new pick sounds wonderful, you'll have to share it with us.

    Lav...how are you feeling after the booster? I'm not eligible until January but I'll be getting it, the pfizer version. The pic on FB was fabulous, too bad it's the chicken's view and not yours. LOL

    Here's hoping the snow stays away for awhile. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 11.11

    Good evening all,

    Decent day here again, can’t complain. We are heading up to 70 degrees on Thursday followed by rain then who knows what’s next, Lol
    Got my hair cut, stopped in Walmart & the drug store for a prescription & am running my embroidery machine as we speak. We’re going to Delaware tomorrow to meet our daughter for lunch. Now that she’s working there we can see her in less than 20 minutes which is cool.

    Mick, I have a rather long list of things that need to be done around here IF you ever runout of chores, haha!!
    I’ve never been to Venice but my daughter & SIL went there on their honeymoon. I’d still like to see it myself. Enjoy the painting.

    Hello to Cyn & PQ. Hope you ladies are doing well.

    Hello to Det & Pauly, Sam & Pie. Our thread is becoming very thin, may have togo recruit some folks to fill in, haha.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 11.11

    hiya all ,how are we then ? hope all is good .Been up most of the night with toothache ..problem is there is nothing they can do about it .on the inner side of my wisdom tooth the gum has receded ,leaving the nerve exposed ,I use sensitive toothpaste which they reckon over time will desensitise the nerve ..the alternative is to have it whipped out ...but not really up for that yet,because in order to stabilise my bit ,Id need to get an implant put in. I've 150 grade sanded all the worktops and covered them with cardboard ...trouble is it is a working kitchen up till Friday , so after that stain it all up and seal it .Was playing with the drone ....till the rains came..

    hiya Lav ,hows you then? all ok are you? crossing the Delaware are you? Washington the 2nd ..have a good day with your daughter .Oh Ive got plenty of work to do ,and if and when I run out my head doesnt stop long enough to not think of more.yep we are getting shortof subscribers ...does that mean there isnt an issue with booze? I think not..seen this?

    hiya ppqp ..how are you today then? hope you are well and the snow hasn't landed yet..seems your ex boss is doing more now than when he actually worked there!!When does the new one start?have you found out yet what your job spec will be ..as opposed to a load of can you just add ons?I hope so ..take care and have a good day ,

    hiya pauly, pie teegee sam det and everyone else .Ok I know its easier for others to jump in here than others I understand that , and that it shouldnt be a chore,but we all know when there isnt a lot to talk about ,or time is rushed it does feel like it can be a struggle to put something down ,but even a quick hiya isgood .or has anyone any ideas to liven it up a bit ..?
