    Re: 30 October

    I can’t believe you’re already that cold outside (1-3 degrees F) there in Canada, PQ! And when the slush freezes, there’s the dangerous combo of uneven ice underneath the snow. It poured rain here all evening yesterday, too, on top of the afternoon rain.
    Yes, I’m allowed to crawl back out of the basement too! Ha!

    I guess I needed the nap yesterday -thought I’d be wide awake at bedtime, but no; very tired, and slept through the night until 5:30 am.
    I have been rubbing magnesium oil spray into my knees and feet at bedtime lately, and that has been helping me to sleep through the night.

    I do precious little now that my leg is broken. Today I’m avoiding chasing three plus hours across the state to watch my college-age daughter swim in a swim meet. Thankfully I can use my leg as an excuse to not have to do that. I know: bad parent. The measure of a good parent these days is that you never miss any of your children’s sporting events….but I don’t really like sports & competition much, and swimming can be particularly dull to watch. I hope she can do well though, now that her sprained ankle is healing.

    Aren’t some of the people in their 90s just the best, TG?! I love old friends like that. They have so much wisdom & humor to share.

    Definitely have to pack the truck the night before, Lav! I remember when packing kids up for college, the colleges stressed to be sure to pack the vehicle the night before.

    Happy weekends to all!

    Re: 30 October

    Hey friends,

    Great day at the craft sale, happily tired now. The Christmas shoppers were definitely there today
    My grandson offered to come over & watch baby Daisy, so that was a help. Felt guilty having to leave her cooped up all day.

    Cyn, it takes a while to recover after all that travel, glad you’re back to feeling like yourself.
    I enjoyed the stories from the older folks too, another era for sure.

    Slo, don’t blame you for missing that swim event. You can catch up at some point when you’re more mobile.
    The next carft fair is Dec 3. & we can actually fgo the night before to set up like we did last year, that was much easier.
    Take care of your knees & I’m glad the magnesium is helping. I have some in a spray bottle I use from time to time.

    Mick, rain & more rain for you, sorry. It was foggy this morning when we left the house but the sun arrived & burned it off. My allergies are so bad the past few days I’m popping an extra antihistamine each day, ugh. That’s awesome about the statue find, good job!!

    PQ, hope today was peaceful & snow free as well.

    Hello to the others & wishing everyone a nice night. Turning the clocks back an hour tonight.

    AF since 03/26/09
    NF since 05/19/09
    Success comes one day at a time

    Re: 30 October

    Mae all,

    Love to hear how all are doing -

    Lav, congrats on the sale today! I'm sure you are tired... all the setup, then the rush of people... but at least you sold a lot, that's just great. Glad the next one will be a setup on the night before. So nice of grandson to kitty-sit! Wonderful. I hope that you have a restful day tomorrow - you deserve it!

    Mick, congrats on the prize for the 14th century find! Awesome! I hope if you and Julie go out that you find some great stuff tomorrow!

    Slo - I agree with Lav; there's a time and a place to support your kids in person... you concentrating on healing well now will surely make the future better and easier to do special trips!

    PPQ - I hope you are getting some good time off, and that the weather is not too terrible. We had flurry warnings this morning, and it was plenty cold, but no flurries developed...

    It turned out to be a nice day today, which was great because we had a family wedding here - and now that I have moved close to my family home, I got to see lots of relatives that I grew up with and haven't seen for decades. It was a beautiful wedding, and a lovely dinner after - even my sweet but taciturn brother danced with his wife! I was sorry not to have my beloved by my side, but I was grateful for my lovely extended family that has embraced me so warmly...

    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam, and all else stopping by - cheers

    Re: 30 October

    I’m using my extra hour from ‘Fall Back’ time to post early this morning!
    I’m up at daughter’s house already because it was super windy out all day yesterday, and my power was out. So I drove up here last night.
    Fell asleep again yesterday afternoon on yet another gray, rainy day, and now my sleep is all screwed up. Soon the full moon will be over, and I won’t be so tired.

    I didn’t realize that Julie went detecting with you, Mick! That’s cool about the statue. I like the knock knock joke. I guess iPads aren’t great for everything, as I can’t read the two visual jokes on it.

    I have to cut this short, as both grandchildren are awake now!
