    Good evening friends,

    Recovery went well today, my brain came back to life after yesterday’s frenzy, haha!
    Sun most of the day, rain coming later in the week I hear.

    Mick, sorry you’re getting rained on. Walking in the rain can be fun, so I hear haha! Got you had a few days away.
    I did very well at the craft fair, same as last year at the same place. I will be sure to sign up for next year’s event, Lord willing
    I spent the afternoon working on two orders, so it’s all good.

    Cy, PQ, Slo & everyone - HELLO

    Have a nice night all!

    Mae all,
    Mick, the pics you posted are wonderful!! It is so much more beautiful in your countryside and at your fairs... I love visiting “virtually” through your pics...

    SLO, it sounds like you made such great decisions for this weekend. All solid reasoning. I also get upset that AL seems to be everywhere... displays as soon as you walk into grocery stores, any tiny event is an excuse... I swear that our whole culture is addicted... but of course it’s the desire of the powerful AL lobby to get and keep this country and others around the world addicted... I am so glad that I don’t have a TV... the holiday ads with all the images of parties and bottles of booze is not what I need to see...

    PPQ, glad for your warmup! We started the day here at 19F, warm fur you, but felt plenty chilly to me! I hope your weekend is good.

    Lav, congrats on the sales! And also on having grandson there, and useful. So interesting that he wanted to come. I’m glad to hear you say that there’s no more shows on the horizon... I hope you can just “chill” for awhile.. you worked so hard!

    My dinner last night worked out well - and I’m glad o was the one driving... the wind was so ferocious it nearly blew me off the road a couple of times. The concert was kind of disappointing, a bit dull... (but I’m pretty picky about music...)

    My brunch with my cousin (suffering from schizo-something) went smoothly, and she was very happy. She used to do this regularly with my mom, so I’m glad to step in. Tomorrow is taking dinner to another elder - a dear friend of my mom’s... her family all live out of town, so I check in on her...

    Here’s hoping that all are feeling well and are safe and sound...

    Re: Dec 4th ish

    Good morning, bright & early:

    I had a wonderful time up at daughter & son-in-law’s house, and with the toddler grandchildren. My heart is full now! Those two little ones have been mimicking me, and stumping around with sticks that they use as canes! They liked having my real cane to use yesterday! I had to lay low as my knee replacement knee was hurting quite a bit. Can’t find the sweet spot with the physical therapy exercises. And overdid the broken leg the day before trying to get stuff out of my old basement, while ex-HB was away at the swim meet.
    That son-in-law is so quick & efficient. They went out and cut down a large Christmas tree yesterday, and he got it all put up and decorated. He made a nice dinner of grilled chicken breasts, bacon, noodles & spinach in a cream sauce that he made, with crescent rolls on the side. Plus he vacuumed, emptied the dishwasher, washed up all the supper dishes…yes he watched the football game too, but it wasn’t the focus of his day. He’s a good guy to have around!
    Daughter is getting pretty big now, at 24 weeks pregnant.

    Re: Dec 4th ish

    The Grassington area looks so charming, Mick. It looks worth going to see and take it all in, even if the fair itself was lackluster.

    I had read your post, TG. But this way I don’t have to look back for it! I am intrigued, and rather admire, people who live without a TV. I’m not into watching TV much myself, and often can’t find anything on that I actually want to watch. And the booze commercials really will be ramping up now that it’s December.
    You have had so much exposure to high quality music in your life, and in places like New York; that it’s no wonder that the little local orchestra & choral holiday concert you saw the other night fell flat.

    Lav, that particular holiday craft fair is a real winner. Hopefully you can secure the spot right by the entrance again for next year too. It’s a good way to get get grandson out of the house and exposed to new things. I know he has gone along before to your craft fairs. I bet he’s handy to have along for loading & unloading too!

    Hope you could catch up on your rest over the weekend, PQ. You had quite week last week!

    Re: Dec 4th ish

    hiya all...back home now ..It has been pretty cold out there ,Julie has just gone for the peskies while I make a big pot of leek and lentil soup.Glad we came back when we did ,the weather is supposed to be getting pretty bad this week ..night temps of minus 5, and a snowstorm on the way too.hopefully it will clear by our next trip.

    hiya Lav ,glad you did well at the fair ...You deserve it ..it is lovely work you do.I enjoy walking in the rain ..proper rain that is ..not the drizzly stuff...plus it was pretty muddy too..

    hiya slo,how are you doing today then? hope all is good .Yes the Yorkshire Dales are lovely ,the scenery is spectacular ,but obviously not as nice as Scotland!!completely without bias!!sounds like you had a good time at your daughters .take it easy with that knee and leg

    hiya teegee ,how are you doing?Pity about the concert,I would have thought you would have enjoyed it ...I take it that it lacked that ingredient that makes you sit up and take note.Our culture is addicted to booze ...as it was to cigs until the outcry over health beat the tax returns for governments and they had to sit up take notice.I agree the television ,everywhere is littered with booze ads .In my own little world selfishly perhaps it matters not .I will help anyone that wants to help themselves .Glad the brunch went well with your cousin.You tale care .

    hiya ppqp ..hope all is well...did you have a good weekend .?

    Re: Dec 4th ish

    Hey friends,

    Woke up to a frosty 19 degrees this morning, wasn’t expecting that. Tomorrow it warms up but rain moves in. I felt sorry for the one remaining outdoor cat, her bedding had ice crystals on it, geez.
    Taking baby Daisy to the Vet tomorrow for her initial visit now that she’s 8 weeks old. That should be a wonderful trip, haha.

    Cyn, hope you’re staying warm too, brrr!
    I am done with crafting stuff until sometime after the holidays. I’m likely to get a request or two from some regular customers before Christmas but that’s OK. I need to to catch up with things around the house & put Christmas together, bake cookies, etc. I am a member of the PBS station in Maryland because I like the shows they put on about th eMaryland shores, Chesapeake, etc. I have a Passport so I can watch any of their programs on my iPad or laptop anytime I want - better than regular TV maybe you could look into your PBS station & see what they offer.
    It’s so nice that you’re connecting with old family friends, I’m sure you are making them happy.

    Slo, your son-in-law sounds like a keeper. Mine is pretty good that way too It’s a comfort knowing our girls have found such good partners.
    Sorry about your continued knee issues, bummer. I guess a prolonged period of rest (along with proper PT) is in order. One of my nurse friends just said she’s torn an ACL & has a medial meniscus tear from playing pickle ball. She fell & fractured a wrist that required pinning last year playing pickle ball, duh. Why do all the 60 somethings think they can move to FL & suddenly play sports like a teenager?
    I seriously know my limitations, there will be no pickle ball in my future haha!

    Mick, glad you got home. OK. Do you think you’ll have snow soon? I’m hearing rumors we may have snow over Christmas but it’s way too early to predict that!
    I’m looking forward to a rest from all the crazy crafting. I need the time & energy into creating Christmas here haha!

    PQ, hope you are well & had a good day.

    Hello to the rest & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Re: Dec 4th ish

    MAE ALL...

    Had a good weekend. Did stop in at work on Saturday just to make sure the room was ready for a couple of new demo classes. Didn't trust the Facility Staff that was on Friday night, she had no idea she was supposed to work. The chairs and tables were put away but the mic & podium were still out and the floor was a mess. I trust the Saturday staff so didn't think about work after that.

    Mick...glad you're home safe and sound. Weather started out ok this morning but the wind is now blowing a hooley and we're dropping to -29C with a windchill at -40. High tomorrow is only -20C but then Wednesday we shoot up to +2C on Wednesday. No wonder people get sick and thankfully I don't suffer migraines. We're getting snow tonight but not much, just enough to freeze on the car. When is you next trip?

    Lav...congrats on a super craft fair. Can you register for next year right away or do you have to be invited? I did have a good day, got a lot of things sorted and out of the way. I just can't bring myself to setup next year's craft fair yet! This is the time to wind down and I start a 2 week Christmas break in 11 days. Really looking forward to the break. Apparently the Prog Coord is to be back Dec 16th, the last day before our break so I think the boss has put her off till January. Could make for an interesting new year. LOL Enjoy your break from crafting and good luck with Miss Daisy tomorrow.

    Slo...I think it's hilarious the grandkids are mimicking you. Sounds like you had a great visit and you're right the SIL is a keeper. You take it easy on those knees, don't over due it.

    TG...what are you doing posting at 2 in the morning. Glad you copied it here because I did miss it. Glad your brunch went smoothly and geeze, off to take dinner to an elder tonight. You're like the energizer bunny. You drive safe out there.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. It's porkchops, mashed potatoes and green beans for dinner so must get started. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: Dec 4th ish

    MAE ALL....MAN IT'S COLD OUT!!! -37C/-35F and the wind is blowing a hooley. Over night it's going to -6C/21F and the high will be 2C/35F. Crazy weather.

    Mick...hope you're able to get away on the 22nd. Hope all is well with Julie's Dad, that's who I thought of when you said family circumstances. Oh yes, we got the snow and it continues even now. Everyone here is just crawling around Calgary. I really have to get into making soup, a pot would be a good start. LOL I don't think she'll be sticking around long if she comes back in January. The biggest problem will be figuring out what she's going to do. Pickle Ball is like playing Ping Pong on a small scale tennis court. It's really taking off here and all the participants seem to be from the "entitlement" group. We convert 2 of our tennis courts into pickleball courts and quite frankly we'd rather not. Oh well, guess there money is as good as the next persons. Hope the weather hold for you to go see your friend.

    Shout out to everyone else. Will check batter later to see how everyone's doing....PPQP
