    MAE ALL…

    Our weather is supposed to change starting this weekend. Can hardly wait. It’ll go from -26C/-14.8F to 10C/50F by Monday. What a mess that’ll make of the roads.

    Lav…did you get the predicted snow? Dog shedding, flowers blooming, it’s a crazy world. Son would actually carry his phone to text me a pic. You can believe he’ll get the 3rd degree next time he asks for the car.

    TG…thanks for the belated wishes. Yes it was nice to have an unexpected day off. Good luck with getting everything set up for the move and you’re right all will be well.

    Mick…good thing you got the internet and tv working as I don’t think you’ll be going anywhere, especially detecting! I’m glad you like the dealer things could be much worse. You’re probably lucky the blood test doesn’t check for sanity.

    Looking forward to a quiet night and the warm up. Shout out to the rest of the gang…PPQP

    Greetings friends,

    We did have about 4” of snow overnight, not too bad. But the temp dropped during the day so now everything is icing over, icicles hanging everywhere, Brrr!!
    Found a turkey breast in the bottom of the freezer a few days ago, thawed it & convection roasted it today, yum. Lots of leftover to play with haha!

    Cyn, sounds like things are going right for you. You’ll be in your new apartment very soon & can settle down, finally. I am happy for you
    Yes, ‘all will be well’ with you very soon.

    Mick, I walked down the driveway to our mailbox on the road & almost got blown off my feet. Pretty windy here today haha.
    Tried to coax the chickens out for some fun in the sun but they weren’t having any of that. Try checking your BP in the evening as well & see if there’s a big difference. I’m still working on getting the evening reading down.

    Hello to PQ, hope you’re not freezing!!!!

    Hello Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie & everyone.

    Have a nice night all!

    Mae all dear friends,

    Well, I set foot in my apartment today! I took it , sight unseen, as I knew this was the area I wanted to be in. My mother was in this complex the last few years of her life, and so it holds a special feeling for me, though I am in a different area than she was.

    I just took a 3-day intensive course on Feng Shui- hoping to hone in on best practices wherever my new home is... (I recommend Katie Rogers highly!) . So I walked through the apartment with those thoughts in mind. I am happy with my decision, even though the place really hasn't been updated since the 70s, lol. That's okay.... I consider it retro. And the complex itself is wonderful. After 19 months of wandering, it seems that I may have a home.

    Worn out from everything... sending love to all... ����⭐️

    Re: January 02 2022

    Good evening friends,

    Cold but sunny today with freezing rain & sleet predicted for Sunday - not great. Got out to the food market for essentials now I’m staying home. The sun finally drew the chickens out this afternoon. I hate it when they’re cooped up too many days in a row, they get grumpy, haha! Made a really good pot of vegetarian pasta fagioli this afternoon, hit the spot

    Cyn, that’s wonderful news, I am very happy for you!
    I actually still have some of the macrame wall hangings I made in the 70’s, they look great in any setting. I can’t do that stuff anymore due to arthritic hands unfortunately. I’m sure you’ll find a way to make th place your own

    PQ, how aee you?

    Mick, it’s either too muddy or too frozen outside for almost anything right now. I guess you can use your Sunday to work on your trains on something around the house.
    We had turkey sandwiches to go along with the soup tonight, great use of leftovers

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

    Have a nice night all.

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...it looks like we posted at the same time yesterday. LOL Looked like more than 4 inches from your pic and the icicles looked really cool. Freezing rain and sleet sounds terrible, glad you're able to stay in tomorrow. We on the other hand are supposed to start our warm up with temps going up to -4C/25F. Then we're headed into a heatwave with temps around 10C/50F. Can hardly wait. The sun does make all the difference, glad the chickens ventured outside.

    TG...well done on securing the apartment. I'm glad you're happy with your decision and I'll have to check out Katie Rogers. I'm sure you'll make the place your own in no time.

    Mick...weather change has started, I am so tired of the deepfreeze. Nothing scheduled for the weekend. Haven't been feeling 100% the last few days so will just be taking it easy. Didn't have the energy to cook so tonight it's pizza and spaghetti. Haven't had that in awhile so am looking forward to it. You stay dry.

    Have a good night all....PPQP

    Mae all - not much to report tonight. I went back to the apartment and can't quite figure how/where things might go, so some things will have to be decided on move day or after. I am definitely buying a couple of sets of those plastic disk "furniture movers". The whole place is carpeted (except the kitchen) and so I will leave the gliders under the questionable pieces until things feel right. I came back and delved more deeply into Feng Shui - I figured out where each room is in the Bagua (map). Just knowing what "elements" and what colors, what images will work for each space has really clarified my thinking on what might go where. I found 2 sites that I liked and that made sense to me, so that was good. Onward!

    Windy as all get-out here tonight... it's really howling... I am so grateful and lucky to have had safe places to stay for all these months, and my lovely family who cares for me and watches over me. Gratitude. They have done so much cooking (and I help and also do the cleanup, but still...) so I went to a nice Noodle place and brought their pick of dinners back to them. It was good food, they were happy, and I was glad they didn't have to work.

    I can barely stay awake, so I bid everyone a good night, and send wishes that all are safe, warm, and healthy.
