    Re: May 1st

    Mae all,

    Mick I actually signed on to FB just to see your pics! And it was so worth it!! Wonderful shots - I hope the day today cleared up and that your next days are clear - especially for the special train ride. Thanks for sharing...

    Lav, what a tragedy about your friends' son!! What a horror. Yes. Guns in this country are out of control... and the way the politics are skewing... it seems like a really frightening time. I did read back about your event last Saturday, sorry it wasn't what you had hoped... but now you have lots of stuff to sell - on FB? You are always doing something of value, congrats.

    PPQ - here's hoping that your Hump Day was okay and that all your plans are working out. Also hoping you are feeling well... take care and try to save some "me' time.

    Maybe it is the in-between weather, but I am feeling quite "in-between" myself... trying to be productive (better job at that today) but the days seem long, and yet too short to accomplish what my mind sets out to do. I am so sad that my two geese mommas did not seem to bear any chicks, despite their diligent 28-day nest sitting...oh well, that's life I guess. I did a lot of professional writing for one job, and yesterday managed to get my TSA early-boarding renewed, a slight miracle. Tomorrow will try to get a new driver's license in this state (though I don't agree with the politics, waaaa). Onward.

    Big hellos to Det, hi there Pauly, and cheers to anyone dropping by... stay strong all --

    Hiya all...firstly..how is your friend's lad Lav?hope he pulls through. You cannot legislate for scum. Agun is a tool it's the cretin that is behind it that's the issue although your laws do seem a bit mish mash depending on where you go.

    It's pouring down with rain here again. But we went out for a walk only 5 miles but it was enjoyable. We found what we thought was a ruined church, but it is the resting place of all th chieftains of the clan McRae since the 1500s.some lovely views even in the rain

    Glad you liked the pics teegee. Tomorrow we are off to the Isle of Skye..the weather is supposed to improve. Are you getting any time to yourself?hope so

    Hiya ppqp how's you today then?are you OK?apart from the blooming taxman?you take care

    Hiya lav how are you then .window boxes for the chickens?very posh!!and I thought my rabbits were spoiled!!!take care have a good one yes Julie's retirement trip is going well

    Hiya pauly Sam det how are you doing?haven't heard from you for a good while det hope all is ok?

    Re: May 1st

    Greetings friends,

    Had a nice day but it all changes tomorrow. Rain (lots of it) & high winds move in & stick around until sometime next week, ugh. I’m just going to have to find an indoor project or two to keep me out of trouble, haha! I haven’t gotten any update on the young man’s condition today & I don’t want to pester his mother, my friend. She knows she can call me anytime.

    Cyn, I think we have similar personalities where we both want to accomplish as much as humanly possible in a day, every day. I’m trying to give myself permission to let go of some of that. If I’m honest I just don’t have the energy needed for that lifestyle anymore & that’s OK. One thing i know for sure is that we will never be slugs

    Mick, you certainly manage a lot even on a rainy day Thanks for the pics & videos sharing your trip with us. Have fun!!

    PQ, hope you are OK.

    Pauly, Det, Sam - hello to all of you!

    Have a decent night all.

    Re: May 1st

    MAE ALL…

    Don’t know what happened yesterday, things just got away from me. With instructors wanting to make continuous changes to their fall programing schedules, people screwing up their tennis court bookings (at least the program works LOL) and everyone wanting to book a venue for high school grads I had a busy day. Got home, read the thread, then got interrupted with dinner requests, went to bed and then realized I hadn’t posted. Unlike Lav, I didn’t get up to do it.

    TG…family time is good, even if it gets a little overwhelming. I was a 4H leader for my kids Beef club, raised and sold heifers and it was a good learning experience for them, and me. Things are going great at the centre and you can really notice the change in attitude with everyone. I’ve been told thanks for all I do from a couple of people now, feels like the good old days. Doing a slow quit with the smoking and implementing some of the new ideas I got including a cig tracker. Knowing we’ll be doing follow up appointments every 2 weeks helps keep me accountable. I like miracles, TSA early-boarding, and good luck with the driver’s license. I don’t agree with any of the politics these days. LOL

    Mick…you need to do a map with those little lines on it depicting your vacation travel routes. That way I can visually see where all you went and match up the pics with the journey. I really enjoy getting the pics, although I quickly go through them when I get them I quite often log back in when I’m home to really look at them. Rain, smain, you’re an old hand at dealing with that. Hope you’ve seen the last of it though. Thanks for the support on quitting smoking again, this time it feels like I have a better plan in place. I’ve paid the taxes and have put it out of my mind. Tried to log in to up withholding taxes on my CPP and OAS but maneuvering around government websites Is like pulling teeth. I’ll deal with that next week.

    Lav…I laughed when you said you left the dog at home and took YB instead. Sorry to hear about your friends son. There has been a huge outbreak in gun fire in Calgary lately. They contribute it to rival gangs. Calgary sure isn’t the cow town it used to be. I’m not sure why I get the flare ups but you can mark your calendar as they happen Ĺ way through my injections. My Doc said she could increase my doses to every 3 weeks but would prefer not to. They are short lived so for now I’m staying with my monthly schedule. I did read back on your craft fair, sorry it wasn’t as successful as I’d hoped it would be. I’m looking forward to our Christmas Craft Sale in Nov and am thinking of launching a Spring Vendor Sale for homebased businesses that can’t participate in November. That’s me, piling on the work. Our forecast has actually improved for the weekend so fingers crossed they’re right. Played bridge with the girls this afternoon and it was great to see everyone back. All you heard was it’s been so long I forget what I should do. Nobody cared, we were just glad to be together again.

    I actually treated myself, and the boys, and brought dinner home. Cooking chore done. Hopefully I can stay awake and actually watch the 2nd game of the NHL playoffs.

    Shout out to Det, Sam and Pauly. Have a good night all….PPQP

    Re: May 1st

    Mae all,

    I just finished up ("done and dusted" as one of our pals here used to say) a big handful of Sponsorship Proposals for the Music Festival this summer. Yes, I will go out, but I will not be working at the festival itself... but I need some income right now, and this opportunity came up so I nabbed it. Tired eyes from working on the computer...

    Lav, yes, I guess we are alike in the "can't sit around" category. I have been taking some breaks a few times each day now that I found out about the New York Times Puzzles... I never thought I was good at puzzles, but I seem to do okay at these. It's all about seeing the possibilities, which is a great lesson for me... I don't always assume 'the positive' ... glad you had a nice walk with YB... was the dog jealous?

    PPQ, it sounds like you are going great guns... congrats, and keep on keeping on with the Quitting... best thing ever for you, even though it's tough at first, I'm sure. Good luck with the weather... we've had gloomy days and I guess rain tonight, which we need so that's good. Rain at night - could we then have a little sun in the day?

    Mick - a 5 mile hike in the rain!? Good for you two! The place you found sounds fascinating... a family stronghold. Keeping fingers crossed for nice weather as you head to the Isle Skye...

    Hello to Det, Pauly and Sam (when's the wedding?). Good luck to all - take care and be well --

    Hiya all how are we today then?hope all is well with you .it hammered down with rain last night to the extent the pitch we were on was flooded to about 3 inches. We drove to the Isle of Skye this morning and it cleared up. The site we are on is just at the side of the Kyle of Lochalsh and is superb. Weather is supposed to be glorious tomorrow.

    MAE ALL...

    TG...nice job on the "done & dusted". I'm glad you're going out to the festival and that you're not working. Time to just enjoy. The weather forecast has changed for the better, no rain. Here's hoping they're not lying to me. Oh well, what will be will be and then it will be over!

    Mick...another round of great pics. Did the van manage to stay dry? I hope so. I googled Kyle of Lochalsh what a beautiful place. Hope the weather continues to improve for you. Yes, lots happening at work and you're right, easier to deal with no added stress.

    Lav...you're probably posting as I type this. Hope you had a good day.

    Time to relax and put work out of my mind. I will be doing some last minute organizing tomorrow for the cleanup, things I didn't get done today. Boss was away so the mice were playing.

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

    Re: May 1st

    Good evening friends,

    Chilly & damp out just as predicted. Now it’s supposed to get windy just to keep things interesting, haha!
    Made another one of those pierogi pizzas today just to brighten up the moods here, yum. Nothing real exciting happening here, just busy dodging raindrops.
    I haven’t gotten any updates on my friend’s son for two days now, not sure what to do. I’m sending all the positive vibes & prayers I possibly can.

    PQ, glad you had such a good but busy week.
    You will NEVER regret quitting smoking, I promise. I just heard today that a single pack of Marlboros cost an outrageous $19 - WTF?? That’s crazy! Grateful I gave it up, no kidding.
    It’s a real shame your monthly injections aren’t holding you. I wish they would come up with a longer lasting dose.
    When I sign up & go to a vendor/craft fair I know there will be a certain number of resellers there. They have invested big $$ in their candles, lotions & potions, etc & need to market them. It just seems to take away from the people who have spent countless hours working on their crafts, made with love not a product spit out of a factory. Back when we were kids there were door to door salespeople, the Avon Lady, Fuller Brush Co., etc. folks pounding the pavements & knocking on doors with this stuff. I guess that method doesn’t work anymore because people spend very little time at home these days. I hope you have fun organizing the crafters Hope your weekend is restful.

    Cyn, I left the dog home with a rawhide chew doused with enzymes to clean her teeth while we went walking so she never missed us, LOL
    I pretty much have to force myself to try new things to keep the boredom & moods under control too. Turns out you never really know what yuo like or dislike until you give it a try

    Mick, I really think I would try to buy that castle…..
    Great pics again today, thanks so much!

    Pauly, hope you have a great Mother’s day.
    Det & Sam, hello to both of you.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: May 1st

    Thanks Lav for the Motherís Day reminder... somehow I thought it was a week later! I have some cards Iíll send to me wonderful niece-moms (with great kids) and take a plant to my motherís best friend, who is housebound, but still up and around.

    Okay Mick, Iíll have to log on for more pics... I hope that the rest of your trip is rain free and safe traveling... sounds like youíve had a good time.

    PPQ, hoping all falls in line at work, and that the weather behaves. Happy weekend!

    Sending good energy to Det, Pauly (happy Friday, girl) Sam, and all else dropping by. Stay safe, and wishing all well...
