I plan to cut the grass this morning as it sure is growing fast with the cooler weather and some rain in the past two weeks. Then, this afternoon I have a cleaning at the dentist. That will be interesting to see how much has changed. They have always had many precautions in place. Have a good day ladies!



I am overdue for a dental cleaning. It was supposed to be in April. We all know what happened then. After that I got a letter from my insurance company saying that my dentist was no longer on their plan. I made arrangements with a new dentist and then we went on lockdown so I was never able to go. My old dental office called to say that somehow he had gotten dropped, but they were submitting to get back on the plan. So I've never heard back from either one to say they were seeing patients again.

Hi all! Wishing you a great day!

Good news here .... NO ACTUAL SCHOOL! They are in Phase One of online learning for the start of the new year ... but Miami was a hot spot to begin with so this is great news. My son was absolutely deflated and wants to go back so bad. I'm rejoicing - just not in front of him.

Have a great day!

Hello Chatty Stampers!


<>


Maggie, yes, I still am involved with all the organizations I work with - we've been meeting via Zoom mostly since March. I do have an onsite meeting the week after next, but since COVID cases are rising significantly, I'm hoping they'll make the decision to make it a Zoom meeting, as well. My husband's meeting that was to be all day Monday (with the same overarching organization) was switched to an abbreviatedZoom format just yesterday.

Brock's workplace is planning to re-open the first of September. He will not go for at least the first two weeks (this mama bear wants to see how it goes before she lets him into the environment). However, since our cases are rising, I wouldn't be surprised that the opening date gets pushed back.

Barb, I'm sure your deck is looking even more lovely now!

Maxine, I am glad the tooth extraction is healing. well!

Waving to everyone else...

and sending hugs to all!

Good Morning and Happy Friday! The dentist appointment yesterday was smooth-not much different other than Kathy was covered from head to toe in protective equipment-hairnet, gown instead of lab coat, two layers of masks, etc. Not much on the agenda today or for the weekend, so I hope to have some time in the stamp room. I hope you too have a Fantastic Friday and a Wonderful Weekend!

It's been kind of a stressful week. The life
partner of my oldest niece was diagnosed just the other day with Stage 4
pancreatic cancer. He's not doing very well. He was supposed to start
his chemo on Monday, but they pushed it forward to tomorrow. I found a
cookbook that I had years ago when I was doing my own battle - The
Natural Healing Cookbook. I took it over to their house. My niece did a
google search for pancreatic cancer and already is cooking foods that
will be good for him. We would all appreciate your prayers for him and the rest of the family.



Got more work done in my garage. Tossed a few
bags of trash for pickup today. So far I have 4 large bags of clothing
and other stuff for donations. I'm taking 3 boxes of household and
kitchen things to my DGD to see if she wants them for her future
apartment. I'm also taking a sun oven that I've had for years and never
got around to using and giving that to my DD and SIL. I went through a
bunch of boxes of supplies that I had out in the laundry area. I got
them all organized. I found a bunch of vintage patterns for clothing and
craft items. I'm trying to decide if I should try to sell them or just
toss them.

Hello Chatty Stampers!





Maggie, I'm sorry to hear of your niece's partner's health situation... praying for him... and your niece, too.

Barb, I hope you enjoyed time stamping!

Kelly, are you safe and ready for the storm? Praying for all of you who are in its midst and/or preparing for its arrival.

Waving to everyone else.

Hi friends - we're okay! Just the wet rainy side of a small storm - we are looking good!

Which makes me ecstatic since tommorrow is my daughter's college graduation <>

Maggie, I'm sorry for your loss. This is such a sad time for so many and I fear for all the sadness that will follow from so much loss. sending hugs your way.

We got word: Schools are NOT opening here - PTL! Smart, smart, especially after reading about that ridiculous school in Indiana - opened, had a positive student, then all the students had to go home and self quarantine for 14 days <> <<>><<>>

Thank you, Kelly. He started his chemo today. No word yet on how he is doing with it.


CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR DD! How exciting. Are they having an actual ceremony? So many colleges are doing virtual. Glad to hear that your schools will not be opening yet. One of my GF's teaches in a small, private school. They are opening, but she only has 6 in her class and they have plexiglass partitions for all the students. They will go to school, bring their lunch from home, and be done by 2 p.m. No regular lunch period with other kids and no recess time.

Default Hello

I have been reading and keeping up via phone......

Maggie- prayers for your nieces Sign Other- and hoping treatment is tolerated well!

Congrats Kelly for your daughter! Exciting for her!

Barb- glad your dentist appt went well, and glad your deck is getting put back together and all of the hard work is paying off!

We had Stephi here last week, and Katie moved into her very first place on Tuesday- Ray went to the walk through and closing, and I met them in Chicago afterwards with a load of furniture and the pup- I was pup-sitting..... We all went back down on Thursday....had dinner, Stephi spent the night.
Stephi back on Friday and back home Saturday. We are back to just the two of us here- it is quiet, but wonderful at the same time : )

Waving hello to all!
Shelly

Maggie, thank you! No actual ceremony from the school - it was via YouTube. They did it by class and by degree but we didn't wait more than 20 minutes for her name. LUcky us - there were over 4000 graduates!!!!!!!!! Since Covid19, they missed 2 graduations that normally would take place so they bunched them all into one. It was a fun day - we have a commencement ceremony here for her with all the bells and whistles. Chrissy's broadway came out as she had the entire commencement planned from the gowns to the stadium and the speech - it was hilarious. I bought confetti cannons for when it was done (like they would have done at the college) My inner neat freak went NUTS but it was just once. This time. LOL! We had a blast!

Thinking good thoughts for your friend. Chemo is never easy.

Waving to all!
