    Re: Jan 9th

    Mae all -

    Thanks for all your sweet support!! Today was move day, and the team of 4 guys made quick work of my things. Poor guys, the apartment complex made the POD guy park quite a bit away from the entrance to my building, but fortunately it as a nice day, and so they just put their hand to,the process.. done in 2 hours! They brought it up tot the second floor (elevator) and I directed traffic and often took boxes and put them in their proper places, so I am t.i.r.e.d tonight, but glad that part is over. Now just crossing diners for a good pickup of the POD tomorrow morning (I had to get extra insurance for using a POD). Then I will able to breathe a sign of relief. Tomorrow POD pickup and unpacking.

    PPQ, so glad the boss is "holding people's feet to the fire". Can't wait to hear how the PC reacts to taking the minutes! Glad for your Chinook!

    Lav, wow, a mushroom store! You must have a good dairy-free recipe for mushroom soup - when I start cooking again, I'll ask for it! We've been having temps down to the single digits, but today had a mini-Chinook - up to 45! Snow coming in on Friday... stay safe and warm!

    Mick, I never heard that you have a brother? How great to trade books for plants, I hope he gets the hint ��. I love the idea of attracting the goldfinches.

    Pauly how is this time after the holidays - are you hanging in? Hope all the family getting over Covid, and you are staying well -

    Det, back to your busy schedule?

    Hello to Sam, QW, Techie, and anyone else who might drop by...

    I see the moon getting more and more full - it reminds me that each day the light is a little longer, a little stronger than the last day. Grateful.

    Re: Jan 9th

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well well I have just got back from my brother's house now. I never brought any plants back with me but he has got quite a lot that I can have. I will go down when it gets a little warmer and dig them out. Really nice to see him, he was in a positive mood. He goes in next week to hospital they are trialling some new drug on him for the cancer. At the moment it is only a small all amount that he has, the last big operation took a large amount of it away. Quite positive use talking about giving up work which will be a bonus without don't he does some crazy hours. He showed me the new canal boat has got, I hadn't seen this one. Very smart he's still working on it it. Apologies for this being short and any mistakes blame the phone it is not my accent. Normal service will be resumed tomorrow

    Re: Jan 9th

    oh boy ABerooos, not sure where to start but it's been a very trying holiday season for this beat-up garlic breath. kiddo showed up only for presents at Xmas with 3 other friends and they all look like homeless drug-addicts.
    skinny as rails and all with terrible coughs. about 2 weeks ago we get a call from a detective looking for one of her friends which isn't a good sign, then about 8 days ago we get a call at 3am from the cops and they have arrested
    our own 15yo dumbass for doing completely insane things and she is still in jail as I type. that, combined with other dreadful crap and all the panic and stress pushed me to my coping skill limits and I drank hard for a couple days, then
    thankfully quit and am feeling fine again. Good grief, everything is still a complete mess and we just don't know what to do. Then the latest crap news is our rent is going up 250/month which is insane so we are panic-looking for another
    place. the slimy thing is they sent the lease renewal and price increase timed in such a way we would have had to give notice the same day to move out without breaching the contract. bungholes!

    Tree, I hope your move goes smoothly dear. I'm glad you have some help.

    Mick, what gorgeous shots.

    for personal therapy reasons I went on a snow hike today and just got back. STILL kind of out of breath... good lord. I'll be walking funny tomorrow. Hopefully I got some good pics.

    much love to all,

    clunk.

    Re: Jan 9th

    Greetings friends,

    Mushroom soup turned out good if I do say so myself! Above freezing today & sunny again, nice.

    PQ, sounds like you’re in a great position to help change the work environment, good for you

    Cyn, glad you finally have all your things in one place. Take your time unpacking, there’s no rush. This is a good time of the year to move & get all those inside jobs done.
    Let me know when you’re ready to make soup, i’ll share my secrets, haha! Hope you don’t get too much snow on Friday.

    Mick, glad you got to spend time with your brother. Great pics, thanks!
    I hope your brother’s drug trial is helpful for him. Take care.

    Det, I am so sorry about the rough time you’ve all been through. I am grateful you stopped drinking right away & din’t hurt yourself.
    As far as the teen goes - honestly, sitting in juvi for a while just may do her some good! She has to learn there’s consequences to her actions. Getting in with the wrong crowd always leads to stuff like this. She’s young & can straighten up before any permanent damage is done. If she ends up with fines & probation she will have to step up! You take care of yourself & I hope you can find a better priced apartment quickly. Hang in there.

    Hello to everyone else & wishing a peaceful night for all!

    Re: Jan 9th

    MAE ALL...

    TG...glad you got everything moved in and that you had help with it. It's got to feel good finally being home. I don't know, the account is pissing me (and everyone else) off so I might choose her to take the minutes. LOL The chinook continues, keep thinking wouldn't it be nice if this was the end of winter, not that it's even a possibility.

    Mick...sounds like you've found some plants for the garden. Good news about your brother's drug trial and it was nice to hear he was in a positive mood. Thanks for the pics.

    Det...you have definitely been through the wringer with girly. I can see why you hit your breaking point. Well done stopping again and I'm glad you're feeling ok. Now you have to put up with a rent hike. Oh boy, what a jerk about the way he went about it. Good luck with your search. No wonder you're out of breath after your snow hike. Great pictures!

    Lav...glad your weather is holding up for you. The sun always helps. Our next assignment from the boss is to work on performance reviews. Start by identifying what our own responsibilities and goals are and then a method for rating our performance. It's nice that he wants our input, I'm ready!

    Need to get some blood work done tomorrow, it takes almost 3 weeks to get a lab appointment. Got a bit of gut issues going on and it could be quite some time before I can get into see a GI doctor.

    Wishing everyone a good night....PPQP

    Re: Jan 9th

    Hello and how are we today then? Hope all is well well. As we speak I am watching the Deer running across the fields. It isn't raining yet but it pretty much looks like it will do. It was great to see my brother yesterday, and I thought I collected junk he has everything and I mean everything! Considering how bad you supposed to be, and I don't doubt that for one minute he looks well l think he's making some positive moves to retire from work. we had a bit of a discussion about that full stop went out to the garden this morning, to find Bonnie in the raised bed. Now that is the second time I have found her in there air-con I wasn't sure how she was getting in because the fence is quite high and from a standing jump there is no way I think that she could have got in in. I watched her coming back out what she has done is scratched and bitten her way through one of the boards pushed it through and made a little passage for her to squeeze through! Ark

    Hiya det wow what can we say say? Firstly keep your chin up my friend and it's not the end of the world definitely not as has been already said, it might give her a wake-up call. I know from personal experience when I was younger the crowd I ran about with quite a few of them had done Borstal or juvenile. It kind of switch my head on to get it out out and go elsewhere hopefully the same will click in her head. Ask for the drinking you know the score from days gone by my friend pick yourself up dust Yourself Off And jump back in the wagon! Keep It Together mate you will succeed

    Hiya lav how are you today then? Have you got h rain over there? Not that I want it back full stop put some more little plants in the greenhouse today basically primulas and winter pansies and I have a couple of fuchsias that already are starting to bud! Hope you have a good day de4. I know what I meant to ask you. We get our eggs delivered, and there is a big drive on to sell blue shelled eggs with golden yolks. How do they blue the shells up..is it the feed?

    Hiya ppqp how are you today. Did you get the bloods done? Yes that is good of your boss getting you to write a self-assessment and the guidelines for it all I will see is is be careful you don't shoot Yourself in the Foot with that one! Write what you want to do but don't go absolutely crazy hope the tummy is ok

    Hiya teegee hope all is well with you

    Big shout everyone else

    MAE ALL…

    Mick…it looks like it’s going to rain here as well. Glad you had a good visit with your brother, the collecting gene must run in the family. What a sneaky little bunny Bonnie is. Where there’s a will there’s a way I guess. No wonder her tummy was upset, chewing her way through the board. She does look a little put out that the hole is covered. Good point about the self-assessment, I will keep that in mind.

    Time to head out for my blood work so will wish everyone a good night….PPQP

    Re: Jan 9th

    Evening greetings friends,

    No rain today & it was sunny & 49 degrees this afternoon. The cold air returns tomorrow then a big storm Sunday into Monday. Could be rain or it could be snow they say, Lol
    I got my hair cut so I feel human again. Not much else happening.

    PQ, hope the blood draw went OK. Sorry you’re having gut issues, something familiar to me. I know that what I eat makes all the difference for me. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon.
    I like the idea of self-performance reviews. We actually did that when we were nursing students, made for interesting conversations with the instructors.

    Mick, I think it’s time to turn to stainless steel housing for your Houdini rabbits, haha!!! Like the chickens, if they want out they find a way!
    Blue shelled eggs are laid by certain chicken breeds. The feed has nothing to do with it at all. I have had a few Ameraucanas over the years who laid the blue eggs. They’re generally goofy & flighty birds, kind of a pain sometimes, Lol Chicken Breeds - Ameraucana

    Det, thinking of you & hope you’re OK.
    I’ve also been thinking the teen’s problems are hers, she needs to own them. Don’t beat yourself up over her choices, OK?

    Pauly, hope yuo & the kids are well.

    Cyn, I hope you’re having fun & making progress organizing.

    Hello to everyone else stopping by.
    Have a nice night all!
