    Re: May 15

    MAE ALL....

    Well the day didn't drag as much as yesterday so that was good. Spent the last half hour of the day trying to book off my vacation days. I am taking Thursday afternoon's off till the end of June and then I had to find another 11 days to book off. Didn't submit it for approval yet, want to go over it again tomorrow.

    Mick...so glad Jeeves is doing better and that they're able to cool off in the garage. I concur with TG, you have a strange way of relaxing. LOL Work is going good, I actually got an email and a phone call from last weekend renters thanking me for all I did to make their event a huge success. They will definitely be back. Made sure I passed that onto the boss, employee reviews are coming up in July. As far as the prog coord goes, May 24th is "D" (decision) day. We all figure she'll be back as getting onto Long Term Disability is hard to do. I'm not too concerned as I feel comfortable in knowing what my job responsibilities are, unlike the last 5 years!

    TG...I know, that's exactly what I thought Mick was going to say and quickly finished reading. Nice that you were able to see the start of the eclipse, I'm the same as Lav with cloudy skies just as it's supposed to happen. Projects are coming along just fine with no community events to have to deal with. Time to let things wind down to summer and I'm all ready for the fall programs. No sneakers yet, I really have to force myself to go shopping. LOL

    Lav...you'll be justified complaining with 93 humid degrees! I'll take the damp cool weather any day. Good news about your friends son moving on to rehab but unfortunately they've got a long way to go. I actually gave up my garden plot to a mobility challenged gentleman who hasn't been able to garden with us for 3 years. He's ecstatic about being able to come back. I never have to worry about getting enough garden produce from everyone, and without the work. LOL

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

    Re: May 15

    Greetings friends,

    Busy day that started off with a trip to the dentist to get my new crown glued in. Then off to YB’s dermatologist for his 3 month skin check due to his Hx melanoma, all was good. We stopped for a quick walk thru Longwood Gardens on the way back where they are starting on a 3 year renovation of the conservatory - wow! Then, since we were passing by Applebees on the way home we stopped for dinner so I’m happy. 8 hours of rain promised overnight tonight.

    PQ, glad your ;customers’ are happy with current conditions at the community center. I think you had a lot to do with that
    Today they’re telling us that we may have 3 90+ days in a row which means HEATWAVE, ugh!! Way too early for that nonsense. That’s so nice of you to give up your garden space like that. Enjoy the freebies, Lol

    Mick, hell wold have to be completely frozen over before you would see me hang gliding, I kid you not!
    When our kids were still teens we went to the Bahamas one year for Christmas & I almost had a heart attack seeing my 17 yr old son do that, yikes!!!! He was fearless, still is pretty much!
    That’s cool you found plants on sale like that. We do pretty well buying from Amish greenhouses, they don’t price gouge anyone. I’m happy therain will take care of the watering tonight since I never had a chance to get to it myself today.

    Hello to Cyn, hope all is well.

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Well, the little general accountant has sure ruffled the childcare directors feathers. I'm just staying in my lane and out of the way. Some of the things she (the accountant) has said to me makes me just shake my head and I want to say do you even hear yourself? She has taken on some HR responsibilities as she does have access to employee files. The rest of us are not happy about it and I will be clarifying a few things when I have my next one-on-one meeting with the boss. Needless to say the two of them have taken the next 2 days off so it should be a quiet end to the week.

    Mick...it is a bit more than windy here, constant wind with bursts of gusts. Must be the bad weather getting blown in. They've just cancelled a lot of the outdoor viewing events for game 1 of the second round of the playoffs. We call this one the battle of Alberta as we're up against Edmonton team. It's been 31 years since we've played off with Edmonton. Glad to hear the positive rabbit report, I hope Jeeves quits molting soon. I'm with Lav, you couldn't pay me enough to hang glide. I think the boss has a good idea of the prog coord's capabilities and saw first hand how she relied on me to get her job done. I'll make sure I have an open dialogue with him if she starts stepping out of line.

    Lav...saw your light on and thought I'd wait till you posted. You had a productive day...dentist, dermatologist, Longwood and dinner out, well done. Sounds like you won't have to water again tomorrow. LOL Not to toot my own horn but I think I have had a lot to do about turning perception around at the community centre. May it continue with the ominous return of the prog coord. With these crazy weather patterns I'm not surprised your expecting a heat wave. I think it will be a long time before we get back into any kind of a normal weather pattern.

    TG...almost called you Cyn LOL, hope your getting through the budget and making time for yourself.

    Sam...let us know if the wedding has taken place. Curious minds want to know.

    Det...hope all is good with you, miss your posts.

    I miss Pauly and her dinner suggestions too. Tonight it's meatballs, mushroom sauce, rice and green beans. Have a great night all...PPQP

    Greetings friends,

    Not quite as busy today but still got stuff done. I have to get started on some embroidered items for a regular customer & will get to that tomorrow.
    Now they say Saturday’s temp is going up to 96 degrees - WAY too HOT!!!

    PQ, your co-workers sound like they are operating on a different planet or something, what the heck is wrong with them? You have a good rapport with the boss so make sure he’s fully aware of the whackos doings, Lol. Good luck in the playoffs, sounds exciting

    Mick, it truly is a huge project going on at Longwood! We haven’t been there much since Covid but we are members so we get regular email updates oin what they’re doing. I hope we’re still alive 7 well enough to see the project finished. There is definitely something for everybody there. We’re only about 22 miles from there, easy trip really. I hope youhave your van roof secured now, could be important haha!! Tell Jeeves I’d like some of his special medication too please, Lol

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well!

    Pauly, Det & Sam, hello to all!

    Have a nice night all.

    MAE ALL...

    Nice quiet day at work, it was almost spooky. LOL Got all my vacation days booked, now I just have to remember what they are! Bridge this afternoon was great as we sat and watched the rain come down outside. Freezing tonight so there might be some snow out there in the morning.

    Mick...we don't mention the "h" word around here. We've had some devastating storms in the past. So that will be 3 of us who want Jeeves medication. Good catch on the sealing tape and I wonder how much you did and called it etc. LOL I may have a fat head but there is definitely no room for another hat. Looking forward to another quiet day tomorrow and then it's the long weekend.

    Lav...96!, you'll get a lot of your regular customers order done on Saturday. It's a fine balance between informing the boss and squealing on co-workers. Don't want to be that person. I will however stand up for myself if any of the BS starts affecting my job. Was the flower pic taken at Longwood or is a new addition to your garden?

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

    Re: May 15

    Greetings friends,

    A thunderstorm moved thru pretty quickly before dinner. It seems to have brought extra heat & humidity with it, ugh. Tomorrow is going to be one of those days I go crazy trying to keep my chickens cool enough. It’s just too much, too soon. We went to the Amish greenhouse & came back with 2 watermelon plants so we can grow cheap melons for the chickens, haha.

    PQ, can’t believe you’re getting freezing temps while we sweat. All the orchid pics were from Longwood Gardens, I love them
    I used to try to stay in touch with all the people I was managing at the hospital so I didn’t look like the rat. They knew I had to report findings to the big boss so I told them that it was really up to them how the report would go down. I think that worked pretty well for all of us. Sticking up for yourself is mandatory!!!

    Mick, I wish I had better control of this weather, haha. Sorry you seem to get the leftovers.
    Stay tuned for the new look at Longwood, it’s going to be awesome.

    Pauly, you sound busy but that’s a good thing most of the time. Hope you are well.

    Hello to Cyn, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!
