    Re: 18th September

    Hallo all -

    Everything is good here, I am just working away at the To-Do list before o depart for the East on Saturday.

    Hoping all are feeling well and going forward... I have been so strangely affected by the Queen’s death that I feel as if I should be taking the 7 days of Quiet... if only! But I am getting slowly packed up for the next trip and “go-round”.

    Hoping all are well...

    Re: 18th September

    Good evening kids,

    Warmish today but not too bad for the last full day of summer
    I think I have more than enough stitched for the craft fair, now I just need to get my thoughts together about how to present it all. The weather will be perfect, yay!!

    Mick, my chickens seem to be enjoying the season change, some are still molting which means I get slightly fewer eggs daily but that’s fine,
    I don’t see myself moving away from this site anytime soon either. I really enjoy staying in touch with all of you
    Here’s a list of native plants I would love to have but it may take some time to locate them Pennsylvania Native Plants for the Perennial Garden
    The gazebo looks very happy where it is like it’s been there all along. Good luck with the van pick up & I hope it takes you two as far as you want to go.
    I did read today about the Russian exodus. I guess they don’t all think like Putin, huh???

    Hello to Cyn & PQ, hope you ladies are well.
    Cyn, where are you off to now? How far east??

    Hello to Pauly. Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!
    Lav

    MAE ALL...

    Warmer day today but the north wind has a bite to it. Hope the weather improves for the Minister of Health's BBQ on Saturday. I will be nowhere to be found. LOL Very productive day, amazing how the stress disappeared when I turned the crazy Fri/Sat renter over to the boss. LOL Accountant is in full blown audit mode with the auditors onsite. I am so glad I'm not sitting out at reception where the photo copier is, she has been back and forth and can be very distracting.

    Mick...well at least you got part of your post back. So excited for you to pick up your van tomorrow. Fingers crossed all goes off without a hitch.

    Lav...I've been searching around on here and Facebook but can't find a picture of the gazebo. Did I miss something? Your craft fair items look awesome! I'm sure you'll have a great sale especially with the good weather.

    TG...what! you're off again! Was this planned or did something come up? You pace yourself girl.

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

    Re: 18th September

    Greetings friends,

    Happy Fall to all
    This summer was so freaking hot, a nightmare really. Glad to see it gone now!
    I think I’m ready for the craft fair….I think haha! I still have tomorrow if I think of anything else I need to get done.

    PQ, I will send you some pics of the gazebo like I did to Mick. Hadn’t even thought of putting them on FB so no, you didn’t miss anything. Haha!
    Glad the auditors weren’t after you, just the accountant. Temps will be dipping down in the 50’s tonight, nice

    Mick, glad the van is in your possession. I’m sure you’ll make it like home very quickly.
    Sounds like we can share native plants - cool!! So tell me how you lost that much weight so fast? It took me 12 months to lose 13 lbs. I refuse to starve myself at this point in my life so the slower weight loss was expected. My secret hope is to get off one or two of these B/P meds. My readings have been very, very low lately, almost too low. We will see what happens. I get to see the dentist tomorrow morning, lucky me.

    Cyn, hope you are doing well.

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    MAE ALL...

    Quiet day today, was actually able to work on the website, it needs some TLC. Boss wanted some changes to the Membership page so did what I thought was right and sent him the link to the draft page. He then came into my office to say he didn't have the login information so I sent that to him. After lunch he came into my office and said "About the membership page, I LOVE IT!" LOL Well that was definitely worth the effort I put into it. You have to understand, I'm not a web designer, I just fake it till I make it.

    Mick...so glad to hear you got the van ok. Not surprised it's almost packed. LOL Haven't heard from my son, and didn't expect to. He's still up north which is a good sign. Hope you're getting your much needed rest.

    Lav...thanks for sending the pic of the gazebo. I love that design, it looks great. We're going to get a bit of an Indian Summer early next week which will be nice. No precipitation for the next couple of weeks but then an early snow is expected. I want more of a FALL than that. Send a pic of your craft fair setup if you can, I love seeing all your work.

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

    Re: 18th September

    Mae all,

    Mick, Bon voyage wherever you are going. Wow - that’s some weight loss... take it easy it you’ll disappear! I have to say that ever since I saw that Fell pony, I am dreaming of traveling to the Lake District and doing a tour with a Fell pony... I haven’t looked yet, but I imagine there must be something like that...

    Lav, congrats on getting everything ready for your Faire... it all looks SO adorable! I hope you have a huge sale! Your gazebo sounds great... a little protection for the fall season... and maybe you can sit in it next summer and have some shade? And hey, what’s the story with the cat and kittens... are they hanging around?

    PPQ, CONGRATS on the kudos from your boss.. that’s fantastic. Good job on instantly turning ourself into a web designer! I’m sorry to hear that snow is anywhere in your forecast... we’ve had such a strange time... yesterday was over 90, today in the 60s...(but I’ll take the 60s...

    I looked at the weather in the eastern states that I will travel through on my way to Connecticut... all looks perfectly sunny, so hopefully i have chosen my travel dates wisely...

    Got my booster 10 days ago, got my flu shot today, am armed with 6 COVID tests to take with me, so... hopefully health will not be an issue...

    Wishing all well- sending love to you, Polly, and hello to Det... take care all -

    Re: 18th September

    Greetings friends,

    The trip to the dentist went pretty well, no complaints so far anyway haha!
    I need to finish packing up stuff to take to the craft fair, I think everything is ready. Looks like we’re going to have a cool sunny day & I’m happy with that.

    PQ, good job on the web work. I actually took a college course to learn how to do that & still can’t get it done, haha! Glad the boss approves too.
    Looks like the folks on your eat coast are going to be hit with hurricane Fiona that just made a big mess in Puerto Rico & Bermuda. There’s another forming that could end up hitting Florida at some point. Oh boy . I hope you get your wish for a stretch of seasonal weather before the snow starts.

    Cyn, I didn’t realize you were driving all the way back to CT. I think you should find the weather to be good.
    Have a safe trip & I’ll get some crafty pictures on FB.
    Luna the cat is still living on my deck, her two kittens come & go. I gave her an extra blanket last night since to was pretty chilly & she’s loving it from what I can see.

    Mick, sorry you’re coming down with something. Maybe take it easier for a day or two - if possible, hope you feel better soon
    I scheduled myself for the new Moderna booster & a flu shot on Sunday. Now to talk YB into getting it done too.

    Hello to Pauly & Det & Sam too.

    Have a good night all!

    Re: 18th September

    MAE ALL...

    It was a quiet, drama free day until 2:30pm when the event people for tonight showed up! I just kept sending people to the boss if they had a question. The event actually started at 4pm and if I thought it was crazy earlier, OMG! So unorganized and demanding. Just looked at the boss and said I'm out of here. LOL

    TG...I can't believe you're heading out again. It does sound like you picked the right travel days. Of course you're going to go to the Lake District and do a tour with a Fell Pony. Surprised you haven't booked it already. LOL I'm with you, I'll take the 60's anytime. You be safe on your travels.

    Mick...sounds like you've exhausted yourself, no wonder your body is complaining. I'm hoping if you get some rest you'll be good for you Covid booster. My son was telling me about the Meghan McCain story. I thought it was just a bunch of made up rubbish but apparently not. You're right the world is getting nutso. I plan on unplugging this weekend, at least from any work related texts/emails. The event tonight is on again tomorrow, there's a dinner party in another room tomorrow, and the Minister of Health's BBQ is on Sunday. The boss will be involved as his 2nd part time staffer hasn't started yet. Aw...

    Lav...not sure about the "so far" comment after your dentist trip. LOL Sounds like the weather is just what you called for tomorrow, best of luck at the sale and I'll watch for pics. It was nice that the boss recognized my work and was pleased with it. Will be emphasizing that on my next review. LOL Yes, the news is full of stories and videos of what's happening on the East coast. Tonight will be the build up for the actual arrival tomorrow. There is a positive side to being a land-locked province. I'm waiting 14 days since my biologic injection to get my phenomena shot, there's a new non-live virus available. Not sure if I can combine it with flu or covid booster but will check it out. Glad to hear Lulu is still there.

    Thinking of Sam, Det and Pauly. Have a good night all...PPQP
