Our GSs teacher has sent a video of the rabbits , they are pretending the rabbits are talking to each other, it’s very cute
They have a farm at the school, goats, bunnies, chickens and I think pigs, they send videos to the kids showing what the animals are up to.

Good morning! (Yes, it is still morning here!) I finished my F card last night and took photos this morning to upload - so just a day after the challenge post. DD2 is a great project helper, she is keeping me going on the stamp conversion. We have our first sets with the Aleene's applied to the back and put into storage pockets. I need to get more laminating pouches for the cardstock the stamps will be on in the pouches.

Jan, DD1's little dog, Honey, would not be able to get up on something to get to the baguette...leave it down in her reach though, and she is all over it! She is older and sometimes doesn't quite make it onto the couch when she jumps up there. I pretend not to notice because we are sure she is embarrassed when that happens!

Jayne, you would love Honey. Not only is she is a little dog, but she almost acts more like a cat than a dog. She doesn't run to the door when you get home or anything. We adopted her and believe that she was abused in her past life because of how she acts sometimes. But she is sweet, just like her name.

My brother had a cat named Patrick who was the best cat! He acted like a dog, so smart and fun. I don't think of any animals as being very clean and I definitely do not like cats up on counters or eating tables.

Oh no, problems with your couch delivery too?! You and Kandie can commiserate with each other. I'm sorry for both of you that your couches are problems. What a pain, especially right now!

Dagmar, I hope when your sofa arrives that it will be perfect!

I sure hope your project is finished, Jan. I would love to see pictures of it. The butterscotch tart sounds so tasty...but DH and DD1 are both vegan here. I'm sure DD2 would love for me to make it just for her and me!

Kathy, we really need to get a new couch too. The upholstery is wearing out on ours. However, we have other things that are priorities over that. First up, DH is replacing several windows in our house. They are on order and should help keep the heat out this summer. He is replacing the three windows that get direct, hot sunlight. I look forward to the improvement.

Oh I agree, color blind people should not choose the colors for furniture (don't get me in trouble with Steve though!).

Dusty is so cute, Kandie! She is like Honey, small dog that takes up a lot of room. lol

Did you call your manager friend about the couch?

Thanks for the recipe, Melody. I can assure you, I will replace the rhubarb with something else...lol.

Oh no to Athena throwing up and you hurting your back holding her, Ann. That is no way to start your day.

Gracie, yes, you sound like an animal lover. DD2 used to have a hamster, that was her first pet. She had two, they were both sweet, it is just sad that they don't live long. We get attached and then are sad when they are gone in a couple of years.

Oh the other hand, if you are gone for a weekend or something, cats are easier than dogs. So there are pros and cons both ways.

This is a prayer request.

DH’s brother called early this morning. The brother and his wife are in their early 80s. I was in the bedroom getting dressed. I heard DH saying have faith, and then I heard him crying. I ran out of the bedroom. Apparently their youngest son, who is in his 50s, has been diagnosed with the coronavirus. He is mentally challenged, a Downs Syndrome baby, with cataracts so bad he is almost blind, has been in a group home for years, and he doesn’t understand much at all anymore. 

Now he is sick. I would like to ask if those of you who have a prayer chain might add his name. Steve Ryan. 
 
Thank you so much. I really appreciate the prayers.

So sorry to read this, Kandie. I have just added a prayer request for Steve and your family to our prayer chain. Such a hard situation.

(((hugs)))

Praying Kandie....I'll add him to our prayer thread.


Xn

Ann, yes, we had frost last night and cold today. More for tomorrow.

Tomorrow our county goes yellow. We are able to go out but still mask and distance.

When I first clicked on this video and started watching I was disgusted. Who and why would you make a video this stupid? But the more I watched I got hysterically funny and started laughing so hard DH wanted to know what was up! I now have a headache from laughing so hard I cried!

Saying prayers Kandie.

Thank you Gracie for the beautiful card that arrived today. I have it sitting on my window ledge where I can see it while crafting.

Kathy I have a 3 seater sitting here that’s in good condition. Not sure how I would get it to you *wink* I’m posting it on our local site today for free unless the women’s refuge want it. It’s perfect for someone starting out.

Default Hello

Kandie - prayers for your DH's nephew with Covid-19.

Is anyone available for a Zoom session Saturday in the evening???
I can send a code via email or by your phone #. Or, I can post it in this thread.

Tomorrow night, I have a surprise Zoom for a dear friend that is 65! I just learned of it this afternoon. She only loves 4 long blocks away, so I may stop over with a bottle of wine or something...she will get home from work at 5, and her daughter is coming in town and decorating her place.

Shelly

Kandie, it is a module couch so each piece slots into the other. It’s amazing how it is built...German structure, Australian design and Italian leather and made in China. The store told me that it’s they have only had this happen once before. Typical it’s us lol. He explained that each module is made at different parts and boxed and then they get each box to make up the unit. I will post a photo of it. I think what has happened is that one of the boxes had the wrong colour on it, which is the seat and headrest part. It was damn comfy though last night. DH says it’s not a pretty couch but we didn’t go for pretty. We went for functionality and for the limited space we have. 

I hope that you get yours sorted out quickly.

Kandie so sorry to hear about DH’s nephew. Hope that he recovers and soon. Hugs to you all.

Shelly, normally I would say yes straight away to the zoom call but that will be my Sunday and it’s Mother’s Day here and I plan to lie in lol...just for a change. Let me check with DH and I will get back to you. What time were you thinking of? We are 12 hours ahead. Thanks for arranging it. I am thinking of a FaceTime during the week but need to check with Karen first on what day and time is good for her.

Happy day everyone. I need to move. Have fun

Ps..I love rhubarb and gooseberries lol

I'm game for a zoom session, Shelley! You can send the code to my email. I wouldn't put it on here as it is a public forum and you don't want to get hacked. I don't know if that makes sense. I just figure better safe than sorry.

I might be, Shelly, but since this is mother's day weekend, we aren't sure yet what we are going to do. Unless they change the parameters on the stay at home, we were considering doing a patio get together on Sunday, but it's supposed to be only in the 40's - not patio weather. You could send me the code via email, and instructions on how to use it. DH always sets ours up.

Ann, we are doing the opposite, heating up not cooling off. Our cool down is supposed to happen Mon/Tues and we are supposed to get rain. We'll see if it actually happens. In the meantime, our temps are close to 90 here at home and close to 100 down the hill. Our forecast high for tomorrow is 88 but next Tuesday, the forecast high is 57! I'm hoping it actually cools down to that, I'll take the cooler weather as long as I can get it.

DD2 and I washed my car and the car DD1 drives. They were both COVERED with pollen.

Kathy, I hope the headache from laughing too hard passed quickly.

Jayne, amazing about your couch construction, all those countries involved! It looks nice, bummer that they mislabeled the color. I just had that happen with some jeans I ordered. The size I ordered is what it said on the plastic bag, but the size on the actual jeans themselves was different. And right now, I can't just return them to the store.

Shelly, I might be interested, depends on what my family has up their sleeves for this weekend. My email address is in the document from Ann, if you go ahead and set it up, send it to me and I'll let you know if I can join or not. Sorry to be so noncommittal, it is only because of Mother's Day.

I'm in as well, Shelly, pm me or email me the info!

Don't think we are doing any thing special for Mother's Day. My number 2 son's wife wanted to bring all the grandkids over and have them talk to me through the glass or stay on the driveway 6 feet apart.

I said no, that is too hard for me not to hold and reach out to them. It was hard enough when my son stopped by and I could not hug him. Sure got to me quickly.

Sweet dreams, Ann! By the way, I mentioned the problem with your DH and the TV blaring and my DH reminded me of what my oldest brother does. He has wireless headphones so he can have the TV as loud as he wants but it doesn't bother my SIL. I don't know if your DH would wear them or not but it might be a solution to help have some peace and quiet in your house!

Kathy, that rubber chicken video does start out annoying but then you listen and realize how good he is at making that chicken squeak out Bohemian Rhapsody! It did make me laugh the longer I watched it! LOL

Good evening all! Most of you are probably in bed, but Jayne is probably just getting going on her day.

Jayne, I think you sofa looks so great in that room. Too bad they made a mistake with 2 cushions.

Shelly, I've never done Zoom. Do I download it on my iPad like FB or do I put it on my laptop?

Well, I'd better go spend some time with the hubby since I've been crafting all day!

Hugs all!

Gracie, I need to be busy crafting...haven't gotten to it yet other than making my F card.

Yes, Jan, sofa orders seem to be troublesome. We need a new one but that will have to wait. Hopefully they'll have it figured out better by the time we make the purchase!

Gracie you can download zoom to both...pc and iPad. You have to register or it won’t let you join in. That is what we found when we were invited the first time. It’s very simple to use. Shelly sends you the link to your email...you click on it and away you go and join in. We have found we don’t even have to put the ID or password code in.
Shelly, email me the details too and as it will be Sunday here and provided it’s not too early I may join in....bearing in mind I am 12 hours ahead LOL.

Still not heard from the furniture store. Oh well I won’t stress as one day they will have to fix the couch. Thanks ladies for your kind comments. It is modern but we needed functionality plus this home is modern as you can see.

Our poppets are coming over tomorrow to see me for Mothers Day as DIL1 will be seeing her mum and sister on the actual day. We will also be going to play golf in the afternoon...just the 2 of us. A friend popped in to see me today as we can have up to 10 people indoors and out, provided we social distance. It worked well and the 3 of us kept our distance. It was good to sit and chat and have a coffee/biccie together. She has been self isolating so no fear of catching something and as there’s no community spread we figured we were all ok

I’ve just been to the PO and supermarket and not many people there and everyone was lining up at least 2m apart at the bakery. It is good to see that everyone is doing the right thing and hopefully our State will be out of this in a couple of months. DH tells me not to hold my breath and says it will be a lot longer unless a vaccine is found. OK...I have lots to scrap and create and stuff to do. Lots of FaceTime catchups ladies LOL.

Happy Friday

Good Morning,



Kandie I'm so sorry to hear the news about your husbands Nephew, sending you big hugs.





Potatoes are planted. Today we plan to plant our Blueberries in big pots.







The weather report tells snow for Monday. I don't need any.





Happy Friday to you all.

Good morning. The big blue trash trucks are making racket emptying the bins, so it must be Friday.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. I leave it all in God’s hands now.

Dang it. The middle finger of my right hand is the one starting to get psoriatic arthritis and won’t bend right, and when I type a key on the middle or bottom row, that finger hits a key on the top row!

Ladies, I have no idea what’s happening tomorrow or Sunday, so once again I’ll miss the chance to chat with everyone online. I’ll keep trying, though, I want to see and hear everyone! I do know that DH is working the estate sale today and tomorrow, but I don’t know when he’ll be home. I’ll be there in spirit!

Couches. Love that modular unit! Funny how so many countries were involved in its creation. . We still haven’t heard from the service department, but DH suggests there is no one in the office yet to return calls, and maybe we will hear next week as businesses slowly reopen.

I’m out of hankies! Now, back to paper crafts for a while. Still need to make several cards for the alpha thread.

We went to the plant nursery yesterday for some more plants. The place was packed - Mother’s Day, you know - but I’m glad to say most of the people wore masks. Even one family had tiny masks for their children, so cute. We bought more of the usual yearly plants, Wandering Jews to hang on each side of the front porch, Impatiens, Begonias, some to sit in the yard. A freeze warning for tonight and tomorrow. The plants are hanging all over the enclosed back porch (my she-shed room). I said to DH, they can stay there all summer, they look so nice hanging from the ceiling, lol.

What’s up for everyone today?

How many of you remember Mabelline eye brow pencils in the red pencil-like form? That’s what my mother used always, I remember from being in high school. Wouldn’t you know, with all the fancy eye brow gadgets out there now, the stores still carry those good old simple pencils, and I found the perfect brown. Sometimes the simple is still the best!

Good morning!

Shelly, we Skype this Saturday night with our family, so I won't be able to take part. I would love to. We are usually on from 7 to 8:30 central time. I am thinking that is right smack in the time you would do it!

Ok, Dagmar, I love the idea of planting blueberries! My DH used to take the kids to pick blueberries when we visited my parents in Arkansas in the Summer. We would freeze them and have them all year. We still buy them on sale here and freeze them. I love to make blueberry muffins, pancakes and smoothies!

I am still praying for Steve, Kandie and his parents. How terrible at their age to be going through this. I am glad your DH told them to have faith.
Kandie, how nice that you got to get all those plants. We were going this week, but it TURNED cold again after spoiling us with almost 80s, it is now going to freeze tonight. I am so cold! We had turned off heat and had A/C on! Now we have heat back on!

Ok, hi everyone! I am afraid I will lose this post again like I did the other day.
Oh, I just got the most beautiful bouquet of roses and Spring flowers last night for Mother’s Day!

Is anyone available for a Zoom session Saturday in the evening???
I can send a code via email or by your phone #. Or, I can post it in this thread.

Tomorrow night, I have a surprise Zoom for a dear friend that is 65! I just learned of it this afternoon. She only loves 4 long blocks away, so I may stop over with a bottle of wine or something...she will get home from work at 5, and her daughter is coming in town and decorating her place.

Shelly
Send me the code. DH does zoom for meetings, but he calls a new york number and enters the code for the call. But he can't see anyone and they can't see him. It is voice only. But better than nothing!

Good morning! It has been so lovely and warm here the past week but
today is cold and rainy. My sinuses aren't happy but they're not too
bad. We are supposed to have men coming to remove to big evergreens
from our yard today. They are lovely trees but they are just not
suitable for a town lot. They were nice for a while but if we leave them
they will take over the yard. David has trimmed the lower branches for
years now but it's time for a change. We are going to put a fruit tree
of some sort over in the corner and put a shed where the trees are.

I
will be doing the usual chores today. Vacuuming, dusting and washing
floors. Then I get to play and create another book folding pattern and
book. I really wish I could send one to each of you. I enjoy doing them
so much. I have one that was supposed to be personally delivered back
around Easter. I don't know when it will get there now, but it will! I
bet you can guess who it's for.

Have a lovely day!

Good morning! It is Friday which means I go into the office today to take care of things that can't be done from home. And also grocery shopping while I'm down the hill. Last Friday the stores were crazy, lots of people out. I think, probably because it was the beginning of the month but not sure.

Today is supposed to be our warmest day, our cool weather (not freezing) is supposed to come Monday and Tuesday and I'm hoping it does.

Jayne, I certainly hope your DH's thoughts about how long this will last are incorrect!

Snow on Monday, Dagmar? Wow! I hope the weatherman is wrong.

Kandie, that sounds frustrating with the typing!

As for the red Maybelline brow pencil, that is what I used to use. I probably gravitated toward that when I needed to help my brows because that is what my mom used. I prefer the mechanical kind though, so I use a brand called Milani. DD1 used to be very much into make-up so I asked her for a recommendation. She still wears make-up but it isn't an obsession like it was.

Sharon, we LOVE blueberries in this house. They are so tasty! I'm sorry it has turned cold for you...pretty soon it will be warm, I'm sure.

Jan, that sounds just like a dad!

Kathy, you could download the Zoom app to your tablet so you could do both audio and video.

Enjoy your chores, Annette, and then enjoy playing in your craft room.

DH has implemented a family policy that I am loving. Every evening just after family worship, all four of us work on tidying the house for 15 minutes. This is helping me get to areas that I don't get to because I run out of time, energy, or both. Last night I cleaned my crafting area so now I think I can get busy crafting for this month's fan club theme....I've been struggling to craft probably because my desk has been such a mess!

I've got to get off here and finish getting ready to head to town. Talk with you later!

I hope it's okay to post this here........thanks for the birthday card, Ann Otto, Sue Craig, and Kathy Humphrey. I was so delighted to get REAL mail! Hugs to you all, and Happy Mother's Day on Sunday (and every day, as it's the toughest job any of us ever have!).

Good morning all.

Thanks for the advice Jayne on downloading Zoom. Shelly, please send me the code, too.

I'm off to make some panels...not sure what yet! I may try something messy to have on hand. I think there was a paint one that I wanted to try.

I'm meeting at a friends home to play Mahjong today. I'm picking up Mexican food and we're going to play Siamese Mahjong on her deck. It will be fun to talk to someone other than the DH. LOL

Afternoon!

Normal chores for me as well today! Lots of wash though as I have been making sure I only do full loads! So it's 4 full loads today!

Have fun Gracie playing Mahjong today. So great you can get out of the house!

Annette, you are always busy! I was wondering how do people store the books with the folds. Under glass? I won't want anyone to disturb those lovely folds!

Kandie, nice your spouse is getting out of your hair for a while. You get some you time!

Catherine, have fun shopping! I absolutely hate going shopping! The lugging the stuff in always was such a chore too with five kids! I would try and time it that I would pick the kids up from school after I went grocery shopping, so they could help me carry the stuff inside.

Off to check on the challenges for today! We had snow this morning and its very cold for May here!

Catherine, yes DH has a cheap pair of headphones but doesn't want to use them!!!

I have got my oldest son and his family looking for him for Father's Day to get him something else so the rest of us keep our sanity!

I apologize to write anything other than uplifting to all of you most wonderful and caring of friends. However, you are such prayer warriors that I feel the need to keep you up to date. DH’s nephew was moved yesterday away from his regular group home to another similar home for those who have tested positive. DH just told me he has now been taken to the hospital with difficulty in breathing. His parents are not allowed to be with him. That is the latest, and thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
