Melody, I understand that there is a fire in Southern California as well as one north of San Francisco. The one north of San Francisco is actually quite a bit north of there and several hours away from us. I just looked up our address and they expect to have power restored there by tomorrow night. However, they are also telling us about another wind event that might take our power off on Saturday. Who knows, I'm just tired of camping at my house. I'm not a fan of camping to begin with!

The Kincaide fire (north of San Francisco) is growing rapidly and, unfortunately, threatening Santa Rosa which had a terrible fire a couple of years ago.

Ann, my mom retired early, at 62 because my dad was 12 years older than her. She chose to gamble without health insurance from age 62 until 65 because it was so expensive it wasn't feasible. Thankfully, nothing happened to her in those 3 years so she was fine.

Kandie, we have dining room table and matching chairs.

Ann, I retired at 62 1/2 and had cobra. Then Medicare kicked in. Ann, yes, you have to have supplemental insurance. It pays for the rest after Medicare, as long as Medicare approves. If it isn’t approved by Medicare, neither pay for it. For example Medicare paid for my cataract surgeries , except I opted for a upgraded lens , so I had to pay for that. But if Medicare approves, usually between it and the supplemental , you don’t have anything to pay. But also, I guess depending which insurances you choose, there could be co-pay.
It is confusing for sure! We have no copay. And, right, then there is drugs. We have also gone to our County extension, and at certain times they go through your medications and find best one for you. Last year we changed and now a most of our medications are $0. One medication, my Votran gel isn’t covered by anyone!
But it all depends on which medications you are on and you have to compare providers, and pharmacies. We changed providers, and pharmacies lat year! It we are happy!

Hi Ann, yes, the Medicare and supplement dilemma! We met with our insurance agent a couple of times to get it all figured out! Nothing is free any longer! We do have a supplement but don't have prescription coverage because my husband figured out that with the few prescriptions we have, it's cheaper to pay out of pocket. No fun figuring things out...that's for sure!

Catherine, so sorry you have to deal with all these power outages! So annoying. Hugs!

I thought you all would get a kick out of my picture that a fellow artist took of me today. It was cold and windy here today while painting on mural. So they tease me because I had on what the girls call my "gangster hoodie". LOL They are wearing stocking hats! So when we took a break, I pretended to smoke my pretzel...I think I look pretty bad a-s-s! LOL



The mural we're painting is from an old Sepia picture and the water below with the logs has a reflection of the mill in it. We are hoping to be done by Sunday.

Sharon, your card may be late. Procrastination is usually not my style, but I've only begun your card! Even if I can get it in the mail tomorrow, it may still be late!

Sharon, your card from me will be late too! We are pushing to get this mural done, so I'm too tired when I get home to do anything. I want to take time to make you a good card...not a "hurried" card.

Hi everyone.....
Kandie, genealogy is fascinating and especially when we uncover some skeletons in the cupboard lol. Your hubby has a great sense of humour.
Catherine I’m a dabbler in it too at present.....wow a castle. Do you know which part of England the castle is at?
I hope that your power is still on....so frustrating for you.
Shelly, how cool to meet distant rellies in Ireland. Hubby is hoping to do that next year when we visit Scotland and the UK. We saw a photo of one and the resemblance is uncanny. We haven’t gone down the road of DNA testing yet.
Wow, twins. Hope they had a great birthday.
Dagmar, my craft room is a disaster area at present. I hope you got yours tidied up. I haven’t tidied mine up properly since DTGD and just keep adding things into it. It’s on my declutter list. I’m not creating at present so I just keep the door closed. I’m not looking forward to sorting it out other than I intend to get rid of items I will definitely not use. Have fun.
Kathy...eek I hope you don’t have to go to work. Hubby threatens me when I’m spending...he hasn’t said it to me for a while lol. I’ve been good.
Now sweet of your hubby to send you a bunny emoji.
Ann...eek re Medicare. We pay private health insurance fortnightly. It’s nearly $400/month for top health cover plus we have Medicare..the government health fund which covers Drs bills....not specialists. We’ve just had a letter from our private health fund saying fees are going up. It’s a necessary expense unfortunately.

I walked first thing today...I needed it and my soul feels restored. I’ve watered our plants and flowers are emerging. It will look pretty this summer. I decided to do some Pilates exercises in our backyard as I’ve been struggling with my hip and knee lately. Nothing beats stretching in the backyard whilst listening to Ed Sheeren....of course I had to dance....which I also needed. Thank goodness our neighbours weren’t on their balcony watching lol. My mind and body are feeling so much better. I am once agin feeling grateful...sometimes I get off track and down on myself.
I’ve got a lot to do today before we head out to see the poppets. I won’t be sitting or crafting.

Sleep well everyone. Sorry if I’ve missed some chat.

Woo hoo, our power is back...probably just temporarily. They are forecasting another wind "event" beginning Saturday evening. But we are thankful to have power right now anyway.

Wow, Gracie, you look like one tough chickie! LOL Good thing you aren't afraid of heights painting that mural!

Thanks Catherine. I’ve never heard of it but definitely will go to visit it one day and especially as hubby has some ancestors from the Kent area. You may be related lol.
Our DIL2 also comes from Kent and her parents and family still live there. It’s an area I’ve never been to even though I lived in the UK for 30 years lol.
Sleep well.

It was fun when my brother found that in our ancestry - and that it had a website! It would be fun to visit it. I'd also love to visit Highclere Castle.

You are doing a great job with your organizing and purging, Jayne! And good for you getting that moving done. I've been doing great getting my daily steps but think I need to start recording my food intake...ugh!

Good morning. Not quite awake. The Mixability challenge looks fun today.
Cute video Kathy. I guess you have figured out how to find videos on it.
Cold here. It went from Summer to Winter, just like it went from Winter to Summer! Too bad. I love Spring and Fall.

Good morning and happy Friday. Once again, how did it get to Friday already?

Medicare and supplemental insurance, ugh. Because of my disability, what I had coming in from SSI simply changed into regular SS payments at 65. My Medicare payments are deducted first. DH, on the other hand, has Medicare and supplemental through AARP. He tried to explain the difference of retiring at 62 1/2 and waiting till 67 or whatever the number is now, and he said retiring early would actually be better, but to be truthful, I do not understand what he explained. He is brilliant in all that stuff, and pensions and stuff. I don’t have a clue.

I have Humana Gold, I do pay copays, $10 at my primary doctor, $45 for specialists, and I believe $75 at the hospital. My two medications cost me 7.50 a month. However, because DH has a pension, we are over the limit for getting the psoriasis medication at a reduced rate. Most of the copays were over $1,000 a month, so I can’t afford any medication and just have to deal with it with diet and stress relief methods and about 15 other rules, lol. Blotches come and go everywhere all the time!

We did go to one estate sale yesterday; oh my goodness, I couldn’t breathe! The house had been shut up for 16 years! Books everywhere, all musty, and stuff all had that layer of grease and dust, ick. I found a measuring cup and one hankie, DH wouldn’t touch anything.

Then we went to Verizon for a new iPad. I showed mine to a customer service man, and he said if it hadn’t been so sad of damage, the patterns spreading out from the hole the wooden bird’s beak made in the screen would have been beautiful, lol. I told him I was going to frame the ruined screen, and the bird had been banished to the basement. He got a big kick out of the whole thing. Another two-year plan of payments now, sigh. The old iPad was not reparable. I did explain it had become very neurotic, freezing up several times a day, photos being blurry, and sometimes the main screen of icons going both horizontal AND vertical at the same time. He said oh yeah, it’s done for!

So I spent last evening trying to set it up and backing up the old one to the cloud and then transferring it all to the new one. As always, I ran into difficulty. DH got tired of hearing me scream I already DID that!!!

But, hello this morning from the new iPad.

We have one more sale to go to that starts today. I’m trying to find two matching chairs, one for each end of the table. If I don’t find any at this sale, there is a thrift store nearby that often carries dining tables and chairs. If none are there, then I have two picked out at Pier 1 to order. I would just rather not pay that kind of money.

What does everyone have planned for today?

Good morning Kandie, good luck shopping for chairs...hope you find just what you're looking for. Yay, a new iPad! I need a new computer, but I hate payments.

I'm off to paint again. Hoping to be done by Sunday! My side is starting to hurt more rather than getting better, but perhaps if I didn't work all day... LOL Oh well, time heals all wounds!

Have a wonderful day and I can't wait to get back to crafting again! Get "inky" for me!

Kandie! So proud you guys were able to transfer old stuff to new iPad, by yourselves! We didn’t even try. It was Over two years ago when we changed from minis to regular sized , and we didn’t even try until our son came to town! He helped us buy them and then he did the switch. Mine took hours downloading from the cloud, probably the hundreds of photos! I don’t have a fancy cell phone, so everything is on my iPad!

Anyway, proud of you!

What are we doing? I have to make our DGS’s card today and get it out in the mail by tomorrow, latest. He will be 19, and is away at college, Bob Jones Un. It gets sent to a box there, and he gets notified, then goes and picks it up. Our DD says it is closed on weekends, so even though his birthday isn’t till next Sunday, the third, have to get it in the mail, so he can pick it up by Friday.
Tonight our senior group at church Joy Fellowship will meet at a restaurant for a meal together. Don’t you love our group’s name? They just announce Joy Fellowship activities instead of saying “the seniors” will meet.

So crafting and eating is on the agenda here.

Morning!!

I have to bake the cheesecake today for tomorrow's party! Didn't do it yesterday, ended up in the bathroom a lot from some reaction to what I ate! I really do hate allergies! The one to milk is bad and usually gives me the stomach problems besides hives.

Gracie, your painting is amazing, try not to overdo it today! What is the weather today for you?

Kandie, nice to have a new ipad! What fun!

Hi Sharon, sounds like you are going to have a fun day!! Crafting and food oh yes!!

I'm working on baking and hopefully some crafting! Preparing for Falliday Fest!

Good morning! It is a lovely day here this morning. DD1 and DH are at work - though DD1 gets off at 10 am - and DD2 is at school. I need to clean the house but I might start by playing with crafting instead...if I can ignore what I need to do, that is. I'm just concerned that I'll clean and, by the time I have time to craft, we'll be in the dark again.

First on my agenda, however, is to tend to the animals. (I haven't gotten Honey yet so I'm typing this in peace!)

Sharon, today's mix challenge looks like a perfect idea for the background for DGS's birthday card. It does look like fun.

Congrats on your new iPad, Kandie, and good luck in your chair search. I hope you find precisely what you want!

Gracie, your painting is amazing. I look forward to the finished photos, however, take care of yourself in the process!

Ann, sorry to read that you had a bad reaction to something. That is the pits, hope you are feeling better today especially as you need to bake a cheesecake, if I recall correctly.

I'll be peeking in here more frequently today since it is Friday. Now to go tend animals.

Good Evening,

So tomorrow, I hope to finish.

Gracie the painting looks so real, just georgeous.

Kandie, congratulations to the new ipad.

Ann I like cheesecake.

The weekend is just around the corner, bye for now.

Finally! A break! I went to the bank, two hours at Walmart, got gas, got a DD coffee, stopped for Chinese and then home. Then mom and dad wanted to run to their bank, the dollar tree and grocery store in two different towns and home! I'm tired and have a headache. Going to relax now. DH is on his way to the cabin. He just called. He says traffic is horrendous tonight.

I've made my G cards and uploaded them. I guess I should get to work now. Perhaps I can play more later.

Sorry you have a headache, Kathy, hope it goes soon.

Hi Dagmar! Enjoy your weekend!

Good evening all!

Dagmar, you're probably sleeping now. Enjoy the weekend! Hope you get your craft room back in order.

Kandie, did you find chairs today?

Catherine, sure hope you still have power! I saw the cards you made...so very pretty! Reminds me of fall in Wisconsin.

Hi Ann, hope you had a good day baking and were able to get in some craft time! I'm missing my crafting!

Kathy, hope your headache is gone and you were able to enjoy your Chinese food!

I'm home from painting all day. We should be done by Sunday. I painted another push pin today! LOL Thanks for all the compliments on the mural! We've had lots of people stop and compliment us on the mural...and some older gentlemen who had worked for the saw mill are thrilled that we're doing this. It makes it all worthwhile.

Just skimming through the chatter......Ha, ha, Gracie on the don't get into crafts if you want to be financially stable!

Kathy, gorgeous star card! Hope you headache is gone!

Kandie we have an oval oak table and chairs all matching. More country style with the chairs having the rounded backs with spindles. But I have always loved hearing that decorating went sideways years ago with them saying it is chic to not have matching chairs. I liked their thinking out of the box that we did not have to have everything be all matchy, matchy, as they used to like to say.

Catherine, I do not think you have power after listening to the news tonight. Sorry!

Gracie, I used to smoke a pack of pretzels, ah, I mean cigs, lol.....Gave up long ago, but you are so funny. I really thought you had a cigarette there for a moment, you character, you!

Ann- baking-yum!...I need to attempt something, but no mojo at the moment.

Hi Dagmar, Sharon, Victoria, Melody, Shelly!

Hi everyone! We still have power. The company is threatening to turn it off sometime tomorrow. I hear the forecast is for the most powerful winds we've seen in years so I expect that sometime tomorrow the power will go out. Good news is that we have a couple of borrowed generators and DH is home and knows how to deal with them so we should have power for our refrigerator and freezer this time. I'm not sure what else, if anything. I should have washed towels today, we are running the dishwasher tonight for certain.

Jayne, where are you going?

Gracie, that is so cool that men who used to work there have stopped and appreciated what you are doing. Is the city paying for the supplies to do this? In one photo I saw a lift - good thing you aren't afraid of heights!

Kathy, I think I might be getting your headache!

I just got another update from the power company. It looks like tomorrow around 3:00 pm is when they will shut the power off.

Popping in again. We did more off our to do list...a lot will have to wait until we return.

We are heading to New Zealand for a couple of weeks. We fly to Sydney and take a cruise from there to the islands. We haven’t been before and this is a taster as our intention is to drive around both islands at some stage. We are expecting it to be very specky. We’ve already booked to go on the zip liner....lol. Our friends did it last year and said it was fantastic and we thought why not. We aren’t looking forward to the ocean crossing as it can be very rough between Sydney and NZ but we are prepared.

Happy day everyone

Good Saturday morning! Wow, Jayne your trip sounds fantastic! Can I hide in a trunk or something and go with you?

Gracie, how are you feeling today? Ribs take forever to heal, I’ve heard. How many years have you been painting murals? That fence is just incredible!

Catherine, I’m so glad to hear that you have access to generators this time. We are right now hearing about the high winds in your area on this morning’s news.

Kathy, no wonder you have a headache, after all that running around! Did you finally, get some rest and relief?

I’m calling on my memory from what I’ve read, so forgive me if I miss someone. I have a little dog staring at me. She has become very rebellious in her old age, and gets mad at me if I put the iPad on my lap or don’t pay enough attention to her, and then she pees on the carpet. On purpose. So with this new iPad, I also bought a (beak-proof) protective cover, and it bends behind the tablet to form a stand. So the iPad is now on the arm of the couch, and at an angle I can type on it and have a dog on my lap at the same time.

And yes, that durn dog does run this household!

Ann, cheesecake sounds wonderful! Any topping? Strawberry or cherries?

We went to an estate sale yesterday, didn’t find much. Remember Borden blocks of cheese? I found an old wooden box they used to come in, a good size for holding maybe pens and pencils, stamps or maybe bills to pay. A neat small box. DH found a drill bit set so he was happy. Then we went to a thrift shop that I used to work at and I looked at chairs. I found two with high backs that I liked, but DH did not. He got quite grumpy about them. I said fine, I’ll pay for them myself, so I did, and brought them home. They have the high backs I wanted for the ends of the table.

I’ll be right back.

Catherine, the good news is you are forewarned! If the generators are gas powered, remember to have gas on hand! Ours is gas powered.

I’m back.

So I think I’ve decided to paint the chairs white. With the pale walls now, that bright yellow tablecloth looks too bright, so I found a more muted one that still has bits of yellow to go with the curtains. DH is still grumbling. I did point out that the table at the moment has four vintage wood chairs, one is lower than the rest for some reason, on one the seat is split and pinches when you sit on it, one is okay, and the fourth doesn’t match at all! And he’s complaining about these two with high backs? Please. I shall have to perform some painting magic on these chairs!

Good morning, all.


Kandie... 'beak-proof' cover for your Ipad? Was that intentional or a typo? LOL
