    June 19

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for being MIA but I decided to just unplug while on my mini vaca.

    Mick...sorry to hear about Jeeves but at least you have an idea of what's going on. I'm sure you will see to it that he's comfortable. Glad to hear they've already been playing in there new tunnel. I remember you talking about Julie's doll house. Have fun.

    Lav...we have had hot weather with rain and thunderstorms. I can't believe the humidity we've had, we're sure not used to it here. I can feel for you. I just laughed when you said you did clean up your clippings. Went out for dinner with friends for the first time in 3 years. I really enjoyed it.

    Going to get some chores done today since I've been putting them off. Back to work tomorrow but am off again after bridge on Thursday. Although I'm taking Friday off I do have to go in and have my eye lasered. It's a simple procedure to get rid of a film build up after cataract surgery.

    Wishing everyone a Super Sunday....PPQP

    Re: June 19

    Good evening friends,

    We had another perfect weather day today . Sunny but coolish, just what makes me happy!
    Worked up the nerve to try out the new Air Fryer lid for the Instant Pot - made really good sweet potato fries. Crispy & delicious, not greasy & little to clean up afterwards, yay!! Now I have a hwole list of things I want to make in the air fryer, lots of chicken recipes.

    PQ, taking a break is a good thing.
    Having a little of my usual summer weather up there? It really is disgusting, don’t you think? I’m enjoying Canadian summer right here in PA, haha!
    Good luck with your eye procedure. Can you drive immediately afterwards? I’m really not familiar with all that.

    Mick, there’s nothing better than chicken poop compost for your gardens. See if you can find some from a local farmer.
    Sorry about the covid exposure, it;s going to be with us for a long time I believe. I think my traveling days are pretty much over. I hope everyone is OK.
    Take care of yourselves & your bunnies

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well in the ‘country’ with little to no internet.
    When we moved here 19 years ago this summer there was no cable, no internet, ugh!! We hounded the hell out of the cable cable who was supposed to service this area until they came out & strung the cable. We were using a satellite service for TV & it was really bad were stuck using a dial up modem, LOL. It was ridiculous! Felt like we had just moved 30 years backwards when we landed here.

    Hello to Pauly, thinking of you with much love.

    Hello to Det & Sam wherever you are.

    Have a nice night all.

    Re: June 19

    And good afternoon all how are we today then question mark hope everyone is doing well. The weather over here today is absolutely glorious at temperature of 30 degrees it is very sunny. Julie tested herself and her dad this morning, both negative thank goodness. Just having a bit of a rest so far this morning I have replanted 12 lavender plants, we did the back garden edged the front lawn cut the grass cleaned at the rabbits and tidied the garage up! So time for a rest.
    Hiya lav how are you? Hope all is well with you. Again like you we had massive problems with the internet and still do it at certain times full stop when we first got Sky karma to get a decent signal there were four boosters put on the cable to bring it up the hill, and even then it was very weather dependant. We then switched to cable, and fibre optics which was a lot better and still is however there are three boosters on the cable. Yes chicken poop is absolutely brilliant for plants, mind you so is rabbit poop. Hope you have a great day

    Hiya ppqp how are things with you today?hope all is well. Is work doing OK for you?any update on the programmes coordinator coming back?you have a great day

    Hiya teegee, pauly, Sam, det

    Good evening friends,

    Nice day here, I’m sitting on the deck with the hummingbirds darting back & forth to the feeders. They don’t seem to mind my presence & I enjoy theirs
    Used my air fryer again today to make crispy chicken cutlets to slice up on salads - good dinner & low fat too.

    Mick, the yard work is never done around here. Makes me tired to even think about it haha! Glad you seem to have things under control.
    I have to say since the cable company came & strung all the cable down my road we have little to no problems with internet or TV. It`’s another monthly bill to pay but frankly I’d go nuts out here without it so I pay .

    Pauly, I sincerely hope you are OK & know that we love you & miss you here

    Cyn, hello to you! PQ, hello to you as well!

    Hello to Det & Sam, check in guys.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Rain basically stayed away but it was fairly overcast. We're getting these huge bubbly clouds forming and it's only when they turn black you get concerned.

    Mick...no wonder you're taking a rest! Glad everyone is healthy and covid free. When I was living in the country internet was impossible. Still remember the sound of the dial up connection. ETA on the prog coord is Oct 20th and we haven't heard a word from her.

    Lav...do I remember you saying the air fryer was part of another machine? The instapot? I've been looking at air fryers but I really don't have any counter space. My sister always had hummingbird feeders all around her house. It really was a chore when it came to refilling them. LOL

    Been reading through the new 65 page Policy & Procedures Staff Handbook. OMG! It's got a few coworkers noses out of joint. Our sick days have been cut from 15 to 9 and they include medical appointments. Our lunch hour is now 1/2 hour and heaven forbid if you look at someone the wrong way. LOL Oh well, it is what it is.

    Pauly, still thinking of you and hope you are ok. TG, you must be almost ready to head home. When is the music festival? Waves to Det & Sam. Have a good night all...PPQP

    MAE ALL...

    Beautiful day here for the first day of summer. Our Farm Stand vendors are supposed to set up tomorrow (they should have started in May) and 10 to 1 it rains. Not my worry as someone else is in charge of that event.

    Mick...when you said her majesty is giving me grief I thought you were talking about Jeeves. LOL Do we have to send you another hat? Thanks for the link, I've been reading a lot about the labour laws both Federal and Provincial and they're pretty similar with some exceptions. Apparently we've been breaking the labour code ever since I started as I always took an hour lunch break. LOL

    Waves to Det, Sam, Pauly, Lav & TG. Time to wind down and relax. Have a peaceful evening all...PPQP

    Re: June 19

    Good evening friends,

    Well I am driving a Jeep Compass for the next several days while my car is in for body work. It feels so weird to drive someone else’s car, haha but that’s what the rental agency gave me . Lol
    The cloud shave moved in ahead of the 1.5 to 2” of rain arriving tomorrow. Guess it will be an inside day.

    PQ, I’ve never had a lunch ‘hour’ in my life, haha! At the hospital we were lucky if we could find 10 or 15 min to swallow a sandwich whole that we brought from home. Never time for a bathroom break either, ugh those weren’t the days! Hope your vendors don’t get soaked tomorrow!

    Mick, I should ship you one if the hats I stitched up for the Ukraine relief project. You really don’t want to keep getting your head burned.
    I hope your new plantings do well. YB just. Brought out 2 pots of milkweed he started in the greenhouse back in March. The butterflies will love them i’m sure
    Sounds like your friend has quite a zoo full of animals to look after. Maybe in my next life I’ll do that too, sounds interesting.
    I think those epic sized people could have shared someof their grub with the poor dog, geez.

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are doing well.

    Pauly, much love to you.

    Hello to Det & Sam.

    Have a good night all!
