Got a funny for you ladies this evening!

I ordered from Amazon a new step stool, one with side rails and a top rail to hang onto since I was wobbling on the old one.

It arrive today. I brought it inside and waited for my spouse to put it together.

So he just opened it and he says I don't think I can put this together. I asked him why, no instructions? He said no you need to come look at it.

So I got up and walked in the family room to look at it, opened the box and inside the box is 10 large white bouquets of flowers, no step stool!

It was a third party seller so of course Amazon has to contact them!

Yikes, I asked the contact person at Amazon if this was the weirdest think that she has seen happen. NO ANSWER! Just can I help you with anything else. LOL!

Ann, as to DH cooking... About 5 years ago, he thought he was having a heart attack. He was very overweight. As it turns out, he apparently did not have a heart attack, but it was definitely a wake up call. He started a low carb diet, as well as joined a health club. He works out every day, and cooks what he wants to eat. He lost 200 pounds and has kept it off. He never cooked before that. He uses a lot of pans and makes a general mess in the kitchen, but I'd rather have that and have him healthy, than cook for him and hear complaints about what I cook. So I let him make his mess, and I do the dishes. I'm a very nonchalant cook, and he likes to eat at a certain time, so this works for us.

He told me tonight that they have the first case of the virus in Waukesha.

Ann, some men just like to cook. My dad was born in 1916 and he liked to cook and control the kitchen. It was painful for him to let me cook dinner the couple of times I had to do so for Home Ec in high school. He didn't always do all of the cooking but he sure took over once he retired! I don't understand this liking to cook thing, he didn't pass that on to me.

Kathy, how about some colored, decorative tape around the joystick to help your dad see it better? I hope this helps him.

Ann, I popped into Sam's Club today and thought I'd look at their TP supplies...they had NONE! Not even the expensive kinds, nothing.

Yay, Sharon, glad to read you made a card. I'll go check it out.

Your back and forth with Ann about the shower card made me smile. I mean really, a lingerie shower is really for the groom after all!

Gracie, it is a bit alarming that people haven't been washing their hands all this time! Of course, I knew this. I hear that men are some of the biggest culprits at using the restroom and not washing after but I know I've seen women do the same in public restrooms.

When I got home, DD1 told me there is a possibility that her college will stay online for the rest of the semester. I'm certainly hoping and praying that doesn't happen.

Ann, I wonder if you package was gotten ready to ship on a Friday or Monday? Friday and they already had weekend brain, Monday and they were still recovering from their weekend brain. Who knows?

Yes, I heard that too, Melody. It's getting scary! My son in California texted me too and said stock up mom we are in for a long haul and it will get worse.

I have so many health issues that for me I'm nearer the top of the health risk.

Spouse has 6 more weeks to work before he retires! Sorry Catherine I forgot to answer that a while ago.

Here's a picture of what my step stool looks like! LOL!

Reveal day should be on Monday this month, Kathy.

What a beautiful "step-stool", Ann!

Oh my goodness Ann! I just showed my DH your step stool! We're both laughing. I can see why your DH couldn't put it together!

Melody, my DH cooks ever since he retired! I love it! He also grocery shops. He said that way he has food he likes. When I first met him, I was on Weight Watchers. I guess he was impressed with the healthy food I made! LOL Oh no, the virus is in Wisconsin. I guess we'll all have to deal with it at some point.

Catherine, hopefully, your daughter will adjust to the online classes. Not as much fun though.

Ann and Catherine, what's a "thing"? Oh, I just went back and read more...I see "detective" Kathy said something about an alpha dirty girl. Is that it?

Yes, I'm sure that "step-stool" is quite squishy! lol

My DH will help in the kitchen but it is primarily my responsibility. He was doing the grocery shopping though DD1 has taken that job on for now anyway.

Gracie, I think you are on to something there!

Someone asked a while back how many cards we had in our stash. Just a rough count... This is about half my boxes, although many are just cardboard shipping boxes or shoe boxes, etc. Roughly 100 cards per box.

World is going mad....we are cancelling our trip. I feel sad I won’t see my family this year and we missed last year too because we said we would see them this year. My brother isn’t well again...doh!

Ann, so funny about the stool..very nice.
Melody, that’s a lot of cards.
I started playing today and had some inspiration and now it’s gone pffft!
Tomorrow is another day. Have fun

Good morning, everyone. Lots of chatting on here.

Ann, it is a job getting ready for retirement, but won’t you both feel good and your mind at rest when it is all done.

Catherine, we saw about snow in your forecast!!!

Sharon, I have never read Ann of Green Gables, but at one of our sales I found an old book with several of the stories in one volume and a worn cloth cover. I loved its vintage look. Ever so often I get it back out. I may have to actually read it now!

Sometimes, since my eye surgeries, I have to lean my head back and close my eyes from all the light on the tv. Maybe I will try an audio book with earphones while I do it. Never even thought of that!

Gracie, my favorite books when young were the Black Beauty books and anything on horse racing. Even now, Dick Francis books are one of my favorite reads.

I cleaned my craft room yesterday too! And I found some things I have been looking forward to for weeks!

Melody, my DH is the cook here, and most of the time I am the cleanup person. He does clean up his messes, but not like I do, lol.

Jayne, I’m so sorry about your sinus issues again, what a literal pain they are. What meds are you on? Do you have a humidifier or something that puts moisture into the air? I have a small steam machine for essential oils, but so far I haven’t found an oil mixture that doesn’t plug up my head instead. Do you have a saline nose spray to help?

Kathy, how about a bright green or yellow reflective tape like people use to mark steep steps?

I had a burst of creative energy and hauled out the vintage suitcase I keep all received cards in. I made piles of cards from each of you ladies, cards from my family, cards from dear DH, and I probably sat for two hours looking through them and rereading the insides and looking at the beautiful artwork. Then I put rubber bands around each grouping and put the person’s name on the front. What a wonderful time I had revisiting all your wonderful words of cheer.

The virus has hit us hard now. Events are being cancelled, schools and colleges are closing and having online classes instead. The words of wisdom on the news are to “stay at least five feet apart from other people.” Now I ask you, how is that possible in stores at the checkout? It would be better to ask people to just wear masks and possibly also the medical kind of rubber gloves! DH did buy masks but they apparently are old stock and all the elastic is stretched completely out. We have to go to the store and get some more elastic.

Interesting use of a bra as a replacement face mask...  :]

Good morning! Sunny and warm today...Honey better enjoy it while she can.

Your card class is probably done by now, Melody. I hope it went well (I'm sure it did).

Jayne, so sorry about your trip, it is so hard being away from your family, especially with your brother not doing well. We had a large group from our church leaving on Sunday for Kenya. I think some of them are still going but, thankfully, the seniors (one lady who was going is 93 but you wouldn't know it from talking to her) have canceled and are staying home.

Last night I saw several people posting their huge disappointment at having their vacations cancelled. European trips that have been a year in the making and planning. I feel so badly for them.

Kandie, I still want the precipitation. I just hope that what falls here at my house is just liquid rain, not snow!

I'm surprised you haven't read any Anne of Green Gables. I, too, recommend the books!

I saw a photo of a couple sharing the woman's bra as masks for both of them. When I googled to look for it, I can't find that one. But, apparently, there is an emergency bra that is intended to double as a mask? Anyway, your photo made me think of that one I saw earlier this week.

Kandie, that is too funny! A bra mask! We can all start selling our bras for big money and spend it on crafting! ROFLMBO.

Jayne, so sorry you had to cancel your trip. How disappointing for you and so sad that your brother is doing poorly. Maybe things will settle down and you'll be able to rebook.

Rainy day here, I'm hoping to get in my craft room. We'll see, since my DB and SIL are visiting until the end of the month.

Have a wonderful day all! If we all get quarantined, at least we have our lovely SCS sisters to chat with! Hugs!

I totally agree, Kathy. I think the media is very good at overkill and over dramatizing everything.


DH is supposed to go to Kenya in July with a church group, but as of right now, it's undecided. They don't know if Kenya or one of the countries they fly to on the way will have cancelled travel.

What a busy day at work due to...you guessed it, the virus. I'm with you, Linda, I'm tired of hearing about it. DD2 is being told at school that it is very likely they will go to an online format as well. They just have a half day tomorrow (as is usual for Fridays) and then they have a two week Spring break. We'll see what happens at the end of Spring break.

I haven't watched the news in ages, Kathy. I don't like their focus and how they sensationalize everything. And I agree with you Melody, that the news definitely over dramatizes everything.

DH texted me that starting tomorrow, he will be working from home as they are closing the building. They will re-evaluate every Tuesday.

I'm tired, I haven't adjusted to the time change very well which isn't a surprise to me, I have always struggled with springing forward!

Our DGS begins college Spring Break this weekend, and then they will finish the semester online. We have Ben to both our Walmart and grocery store, and no shortages yet. In fact they have big displays of hand sanitizer and Lysol etc. but I think Kansa had only one case until today, now I think there are three.
DH and I are kind of isolated anyway as we are not very social except for going to church., and church functions. But all sports has been cancelled or postponed. I got a postcard today that they cancelled Senior Citizens Spring Classes that I sometimes enroll in, because of the virus.

Yum, Ann, warm blueberry pie and a scoop of ice cream sounds delicious. I'm drooling!

I was just thinking I need to get pie for this Saturday - Pi day!

You are fortunate, Sharon, not to have shortages yet. The TP aisle at Sam's Club was completely EMPTY! No kinds of TP to be found. DH found some at Smart & Final and brought two packs of 12 rolls home today. Unfortunately, DD1 is the only one in the house who will like them as they are lavender scented!

Ann, the pies sound yummy! You need one of these:

apple peeler - Google Search

I have the pampered chef one, and it peels, cores and slices (basically in a spiral), so all you need to do is cut it into quarters.

Melody, I had one of those peelers but for odd shaped apples I could never get it to work for me so I donated the thing to Goodwill!

Default Hello

Waving Hello to all!

We are in Virginia visiting Stephi. We bought tickets a very long time ago, and have not been here (other than Thanksgiving) in over a year. We had dinner tonight- Mediterrain- and it was very good. We will cook at her place tomorrow, and have dinner with her friends on Saturday. Heading home on Sunday. We are trying to get her to invite the Doctor, PhD, that is her mentor while working on her doctorate to have lunch with us Saturday. It is going to be in the 70's tomorrow and the Cherry Blossoms are starting to bloom, the ones at the airport are in full bloom!!

We had to missionaries at our house last week Sun-Wednesday, mostly just saw them in the AM and at night. They ran the 8th grade Confirmation retreat at our church. We hosted 2 of the 10 kids. We took them to the Morton Arboretum for a quick hike and some pictures Sunday night. What awesome kids!!!

I have been racing to get ready to head out for this trip. Slept only about 4 hours last night, so straight to bed for a nap when we arrived! We are right across from a mall, so had an hour to wait for Stephi to get here for dinner, so dropped in and did a little shopping, hubby too : )

I never read Annie from Green Gables- was a nancy Drew girl, and I think I read the entire series!

With 7 kids, my mom taught us to help out and cook early on. One year, we got all of the grocery $$$, did all of the grocery shooping and meal planning and cooking. IF we had any $$$ left over at the end of the month, we got to keep it. I have no idea if I had money left over, but it was a fabulous idea, and I knew my way around the kitchen pretty well by the end of the month.

I love to cook, and hubby does our dishes. We have done that since we were first married.

Ann- Blueberry pie sounds delicious! And, your step stool is quite lovely and should match every room : ) That is crazy how that got mixed up!

Catherine- snow sounds great, and the stores here do not have any TP either- my daughter needs some too....... My daughter is at George Mason, and they too are doing online classes. I am hearing most of the Universities in Illinois are going online as well.

Jayne, so sorry your brother is doing poorly and that you have to cx your trip.

Kandie- I have never tried an audio book-but my daughter listens to them. So, is your glare issue something new to deal with, or is that expected after the cataract implants put in place?

Gracie- my friend is in Arizona and was so disappointed to go to a game today and all of the games are cancelled. It will be a long spring for hubby. I wonder if the widespread stay home from work will affect film making and Hollywood? We will be on SCS and watching reruns on TV!

Melodie- wow-good for your hubby! Too bad if he misses out on his mssion trip- what an awesome experience! Although, I bet it is HOT there in June!

Off to bed- hope everyone has a great weekend staying in, or out looking for TP! LOL Waving hello to all!!!

Shelly
