    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Evening greetings one & all,

    Chilly & damp here still but I’m staying inside mostly so who cares? Haha
    Just talked to son & grandson, they’re both fine. Now to keep everyone healthy - any ideas?? Seems like you do everything you can but end up getting sick anyway, bummer.
    Turns out the incubation period for Omnicron is only 3 days, not 5 days as for Delta. Be careful!

    Pauly, it’s sad that we still don’t have the supplies we need to battle this virus. I always thought the US had the ability to step up production when needed, apparently not
    I really wish you could find a salon you like. Have you gone thru business listings & made any calls to introduce yourself? Dion’t be shy.

    Mick, glad you’re home safe & sound. Most of yesterdays snow is gone now, it was nice for a few hours, haha.
    I feel like it’s going to take a few more days to get over this junk occupying my head, Lol but I am getting better. Since we live in a real tri-state area it’s easy to go off in different directions & shop for test kits in 3 different states but the need has exceeded supply everywhere.

    Hello to Cyn & PQ, hope you are well.
    Hello to Det, Sam & everyone.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL…

    It felt like a heatwave out there today. Even though it only got to -17C/1.4F it wasn’t that bitterly cold heavy air. Lots of other people out about today as well, think everyone had to restock. Colder tomorrow but warmer on Thursday when I have to check on the community centre again. This time I picked the right day. LOL

    TG…we’re going to get a reprieve this weekend and then back to the deepfreeze for the start of the work week next week. Don’t exhaust yourself with the apartment hunting, you’ve been through quite a bit and nobody would blame you for taking it easy for awhile.

    Lav…sorry you’re still struggling with the respiratory funk but at least it’s not covid. The mushroom soup sounds like a winner and I’m glad you did nothing else yesterday. Glad to hear your son tested negative and was able to go back to work. I don’t know, 80 grandchildren, I can just imagine Christmas. Do they celebrate Christmas? Staying inside mostly today is a good plan, who cares what the weather is doing then. That’s my plan for tomorrow.

    Pauly…we can’t get test here either. I think your assumption about the crazy lady may be correct. I wish you could find an independently owned salon too.

    Mick…glad you’re home safe and sound and that you didn’t drive into a snow storm, rain is bad enough. Sounds like the rotational exercises helped but the topper will also be a benefit. So you’re home till February, don’t forget about Valentine’s Day. It’s great you’re new found escape place has all kinds of train events, just up your alley. Good job on saving a fortune on Boxing Day. LOL

    Waves to Pi, Det, Sam and QW….have a good night all….PPQP

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Mae all,

    Just finished up helping to clear away all the stuff from an Open House my brother and sister-in-law gave for me - cousins, and their kids, people I haven't seen for a long time. It was so nice to have the welcome, and even the 20-somethings who don't usually get to see each other had a good time - so I am finding the silver lining in being close to family. No decisions on an apartment yet... I have my favorites, but must wait until I get my proof of income - not until after the first of the year, so we'll see if my choices will still be there. Going into the deep freeze this weekend, and a big snow storm on Sunday. I won't mind the snow, and I did remember to pack my long underwear (!).

    Mick, glad you ar home safe and sound... keep on with the exercises, good man- - sounds like it helps.

    Lav, so sorry this "crud" is still getting you down... whatever it is, I hope it moves along soon!

    Pauly, I agree with all - I hope you can find a different shop where you are valued as you should be!

    PPQ, already getting ready to go back to work? Wow, those weeks flew by. Well, I guess that it a warming trend, but goodness it still is cold! Take care.

    Det, QW, and anyone stopping by -wishing you well - we'll be arriving at a new moon soon -

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well. We have just had Amy and her boyfriend down, then I've just left so we need to get tea on the go. Picked the rabbits up this morning full stop on the way there the car didn't feel quite right and I thought it was just the rain on the roads full stop that is until I got to to the rabbit boarding place and discovered I had a puncture full stop fortunately I had a tyre pump with me me so I pump the top and that held until I got home but tomorrow is new tyre day. Apparently over here today we have run out of test kits for the virus as well and and it is impossible to book a test for the next 48 hours this is because they have reduced the amount of isolation time over here on the proviso that you produce and negative lateral flow test at the end of the isolation period full stop to be honest with you I think they are making it up up as they go along. Hope everyone is doing well, it has been called today but apart from the rain this morning the rest of the day has been good. Did my exercise again today de-ai think this is going to be a regular thing I'm putting it down to to a previous injury as opposed to old age haha. Apologies for this being so shorter post Julie has gone down to see her Dad and I'm doing the tea by doing I mean cooking not cremating or anything! Take care look after yourselves have a lovely day

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Good evening friends,

    I think there may be an end to this tunnel of snot, haha! Just now realized I feel better than I did when I woke up this morning so that’s good.
    Made a turkey pot pie for dinner that turned out pretty good

    PQ, listening to the weather forecast I see we are in for warming temps & more rain showers. Winter is delayed once again.
    Yeah, our Amish friend has 11 kids, 9 boys & 2 girls (I think).all of them except one are married & having kids so the family numbers just keeps increasing. Their youngest daughter appears to be extremely socially awkward, should have been married off years ago. But she’s running her own business of growing succulents in greenhouses on the family farm. They do celebrate Christmas & told us years ago they buy the grandkids packs of chewing gum, haha! Hope your day was easy.

    Cyn, that’s so nice you got to see extended family like that.
    I hope the snow isn’t too overwhelming this weekend. I’m on the mend so you probably won’t be hearing too much more complaining from me, Lol

    Mick, sorry about your car tire. It’s always something. Glad you got to see Amy & her boyfriend.
    Keep up with the exercise, it always helps. I have to get back to mine now that this cold is beginning to leave me.

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie & everyone.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    MAE ALL…

    Will try this again! Cold again today but it was sunny. Didn’t really matter as I didn’t go anywhere. Boss texted this afternoon that he was at the community centre and would go in again tomorrow so I don’t have to. Replied and said stay warm, see you on Tuesday. He replied sounds good. Later I thought there is still 4 more days of closure and felt guilty about not offering to go in over the weekend. Almost texted him back and then thought no, he’s getting paid the big bucks and he can deal with it. LOL

    TG…what a nice reunion for you I’m sure it warmed your heart. Ah, you have some apartments already picked out. Hope your proof of income comes soon and one of your choices works out. Hope you don’t get clobbered with snow and glad you remembered the long underwear. Been keeping up with the news as “they” may decide to do at home learning for the kids in January. That will affect our childcare staff. If I thought I was in a “wait and see” state before it’s extreme now.

    Mick…bummer about the car tire, seems it’s just one thing after another for you. Glad you were able to see Amy. Some of the provinces are reducing isolation times over here but not Alberta yet. We shall see. Our provincial government isn’t doing anything till they see what happens with everyone else. Status quo since the start of all this. Glad the exercise are helping and yes you should definitely keep it up.

    Lav…YAY, isn’t it funny when you all of a sudden realize you’re feeling better! I often think how long have I been feeling better anyways? LOL Wow, I thought coming from a family of 8 kids was a lot. Packs of chewing gum, why haven’t I thought of that. LOL

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all….PPQP

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope everyone is well. just been to the garage and yes just my luck the punctured tyre is not repairable so there we go 70 of good queen Bess pounds to buy a new one. It's raining here quite heavily. Julie went to work this morning with a big Happy smile not! Both the rabbits are doing well they haven't stopped eating since we came home. I had a savoy cabbage for them my come on and put it on top of a box which I thought was Out of Reach how long was I I went into the garage last night to find both of them stretched out on another box eating said cabbage they had bangs and pushed the boxes so that the cabbage dropped off it and then decided to have a little feast! Fortunately they hadn't eaten much of it it before I got to them.

    Hiya ppqp how are you today then? hope all is well over there with you you. The government this morning has just started setting up 8 emergency hubs for the virus full stop very similar to the nightingale hospitals that was set up previously that nobody went into! Yes the exercise is helping, I can can you feel the difference. They reckon this New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are going to be the mildest here for a long long time I'm how ever immediately afterwards it is going to drop drastically. So I need to empty all the water off the van. Hope you have a good day day take care

    Hiya lav and how are you today? Glad you are getting near to the end of the tunnel of snot it's not much fun full stop wow that's some Christmas present chewing gum yippee couldn't think of anything better to pull my teeth out. Yes I intend to get into a lot more exercise although I need to watch what I actually do take care and look after yourself

    Hiya teegee hope things are ok with you.

    Hiya pauly hope all is good with you too

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Mae all -

    Sounds like everyone is hanging in there, and not too much drama... glad to see...
    I turned in the rental application - I had questions, so I went into the office and literally finished it in the lobby (with wifi supplied from my phone hotspot ) So we'll see - the agent suggested that I apply without waiting, as the apartments go quickly. I can update my profile when I get the new 1099 form. I was a little shaky about it all... putting the application in makes everything feel very "real" in a different way...

    Mick, seriously, the rabbits jiggled the boxes until the cabbage fell? That's a new one! Clever bunnies!!! Sorry to hear about your tyre - but glad that nothing bad happened while you were driving on it. Good luck with all the Covid nuttiness... same over here... I sometimes wonder if this is the new normal... I sincerely hope not... take care and enjoy the exercise...

    PPQ, you made the right call - the boss is making the big bucks!i hope your weekend warms up for you - such a long cold spell!

    Lav, so glad to hear that you are feeling better... that bug seemed to pack a punch - hopefully that will be the end of sickness for the winter!

    Pauly, how are you and the kids feeling? Doing okay? Hope so.

    Det and QW and anyone else dropping by- wishing you all well -

    Re: Boxing Day Dec 26

    Good evening friends,

    Still did much of nothing today but I do feel a little better. Wow, this virus was a big one, whatever it was. Not to sound like an idiot but I’m not used to being sick, haha. Guess my turn caught up with me or something. Still in the 50’s & damp here, weird weather.

    PQ, it is shocking to suddenly realize you feel better than you did the previous night, Lol
    Your boss sounds like a gentleman, let him take over the building checks especially with the heating system issues. I never go out for NYE, staying home & healthy is my plan

    Mick, your rabbits behave like my brother’s twins did when they were young, haha. They were partners in crime, for sure.
    Feel safer with a new tire on your car, I would.

    Cyn, that’s exciting you may have a new place already. I’m sure it must feel weird after all you’ve been thru but finally settling in somewhere will be good for you
    You’ve been living out of your car & moving around so much this past year. Yep, I feel this virus I have should count as enough for this winter season!!!

    Hello to Pauly & Det. Hope you are both well.
    Hello to Sam & PIe & everyone.

    Have a nice night everyone!
