Wow! Nearly 3 1/2 hours! I could've come back! My ear is slightly achy this morning. I took the earplug out to see how it goes. I'm working on setting up an area so I don't have to stand and hold my tablet!

I'm amazed at Kandie's resilience! I wouldnt have made it that long if I were that sick!

I still haven't figured out who everyone was last night. Since the phone is small, the inscriptions by the pictures were pretty tiny. Maybe next time, DH will let me use one of his tablets/laptops, or whatever they are.

So as I'm opening a mother's day gift from DH, I suddenly realized that I had not even thought about a card & gift for him for our anniversary... TODAY!!! I guess I'm going to have to make a trip to Walgreens to get a gift card.

Hi Gracie, my twin! Yes, we probably post at similar times since, right now I think we are at the same time because Arizona doesn't change times.

I should have mentioned that I am also self conscious about my appearance. I have gained too much weight as I have gotten older, I miss being skinny!

Oops, Melody!

I agree, Kathy, I wouldn't have made it that long - and made a card - if I were not feeling well.

I could not believe we were on zoom as long as we were!! I am amazed I didn't have to run to the bathroom!!

After we hung up, I had to go of course but was telling my family I made it over three hours without having to run to the bathroom, and I even drank a good amount of water! That's a record I thing for me!

So, the girls couldn't wait to have me open gifts. They gave me a massage with my fantastic massage therapist friend - I can't wait! DD1 also gave me a beautiful insulated Starbucks travel mug (matte black) and a gift card for Starbucks.

Here is a photo of the adorable card DD2 made. She made a mini card of one of my cards from my stash. There is a grand piano stamped on the inside of her miniature. I think she did great.

Wow, lots of chatter today! Happy Mothers' Day!

Thanks for a lovely evening! I really enjoyed seiing you all and visiting. So sorry you weren't feeling well Kandie and Kathy.

I got to chat with my daughter for a long while this morning. My son and his family came for a visit and that was wonderful!

David is going to make supper for me tonight and then we are going to sit and do a puzzle together.

Default Hello

Good afternoon!

Like Ann, I ran to the bathroom when the call ended, but I had a huge cup of tea (decaf) and a glass of wine : ) I did finish up the G&A card I started last night , but not until this afternoon.

I was using the brushes and was able to smoothly blend using Distress Oxide inks, I had been trying using Distress inks. Great tipp and I appreciate it!

Kathy- I also envisioned you with shorter hair, fun to see everyone IRL. I am also a bit self conscious, especially with the weight I have put on! I am working on changing eating habits and not really dieting, and feeling much better.
Kathy- so sorry about your ear and jaw pains too!

Kandie- I would never have guessed you were not feeling well. So sorry to hear that! And, your pup is adorable and fun for your hubby to stop by as well!

Catherine- fun to meet your hubby too- and your DD1 Michaela! I absolutely love House Mouse stamps, and recently found tons of them at Tuesday Morning. (I biugh every one that I did not own, and went back every Tuesday until they quit showing up).

Ann, by the way, was the first one on the Zoom : ) I did not know what to expect, as it was my first zoom, and Jayne connected from Over the Pond next.

Gracie- it was fun to see your daughter creating with you too!4/

The kids got us a Roomba for Mother's Day- it is quite funny to see how the dog looks to see when it is coming and jumps up on the couch! He is a 70# pup....

Waving a happy hello to all! Dinner is beong served shortly

Shelly

Oh- set a date and time so I can run it by Katie and have her set it up, plenty in advance so we are sure everyone has the invite!

Shelly

Again, thank you . Shelly for last night. I am just sorry I was only able to be on there a short time. I missed Kathy! No wonder you didn’t want to talk, Kandie! I am so sorry you weren’t feeling well. Melody , I was confused who was who and I had a laptop! LOL
I wasn’t doing a project as, I didn’t even think I was even going to be able to get on because it was our Sat. For Skype with our Georgia family. Thank you Shelly for sending the code anyway. I was happy to get to check in. I had never met Annette or Shelly, or seen Melody before! Wish we could have seen Lynn! I wonder if that was confusing for her hearing us all talk at the same time and not able to see who was talking?
Happy Sunday evening.

So today we had a video chat with the kids, as we've been doing every Sunday. Today we tried Google Meet, and we all turned on the closed captioning. We laughed so hard, because a LOT of the words that came up in print were not even close to what was being said.  I can't imagine where their voice recognition was coming from, because we are mid-westerners with NO accent.

I had never heard that song before and Mat has an amazing voice. I follow him and his daughter Savannah on YouTube. They harmonize so beautifully.

Zoom friends, I have a question. Were you on zoom through website or through the zoom app? I'm wondering if that's why I had trouble when I first got on. I was on the app.

So glad you had a long visit with your daughter, Annette.

Shelly, Tuesday Morning is where I got the House Mouse images I was coloring. I had stamped them out a while ago and just not sat still to color them. In fact, I don't remember what kind of ink I stamped them with - if it is Copic safe or not - so I was using colored pencils.

What fun to be able to see your grandson via Facetime. I know you'd rather be there but at least technology allows you to not miss it completely!

Sharon, glad you popped on even for just a little while.

Melody, sometimes I have captioning running on videos and laugh at the words they use. You just have to wonder sometimes!

Kathy, are you feeling better this evening?

DD2 planned, prepared, and directed a lovely tea. (She, thankfully, recruited her dad and sister to help so she wasn't completely exhausted.) When it was done she said, "I am never hosting Thanksgiving!" I understand, but she did great. We had cucumber tea sandwiches (I told them to leave the crusts on though), homemade cranberry orange scones, croissants, fresh fruit, tea - 3 kinds, Martinelli's, and orange water. And the table, which DD2 did on her own, was so lovely.

Kathy, I just clicked on the link in the email. That opens Zoom.us on my computer but, really, it is running from the app.

I have a lot to learn about zoom. LOL. I just downloaded the app on my bigger tablet. I might try using this next time. It has a detachable keyboard that when used backwards acts as a stand for the tablet. I thought I'd use the keyboard, but its easier to use the touch screen so the keyboard is just a stand now. That will help too. But I need to check the camera on here. I don't think its much better than the one on my small tablet.

The camera seems worse on this bigger tablet. The camera on my cellphone is much better than any of my tablets but I don't want to download the zoom app there. I want to keep the phone free from becoming bloated with extras.

Kathy, I think you'll be happier with the tablet rather than the phone anyway. The phone is so small, it's hard to see when someone shows a project, etc. And you only get 4 people on a screen, and one is always yourself, so only 3 others. That's what I was dealing with, so I missed most of what everyone was showing, because by the time I scrolled to them, they'd already set it down. Next time, I'll see if DH can set me up with his extra tablet.

Thanks Melody. I guess I'll try the larger tablet next time. Its 11.5" and the tablet I used was only 7".

Mr. Possum was just on my front deck again.

Morning ladies, Monday morning and we are now allowed out in the car together and go out as long as we don’t leave our area, I wanted to go to the beach but Steve is worried as it’s the first everyone will go and it would be hard to avoid everyone so we will go on Wednesday when we take the car to the garage. Can’t wait to see the beach, ha,ha,

Kathy I’m also curious to see what the colour of my hair will be, I only have highlights but I have trimmed my fringe so it’s taking off the blonde bits, I can already see my darker roots when my hair is wet, it looks so much darker than it used to be, I have a little grey at the sides, I’m hoping that’s all,LOL my Mum never went completely grey just like highlights running through her hair so hopefully I will be the same, it’s gets scary as I see my Mum more and more when I look in the mirror!!!

Default Hello

Night time here- past my bedtime...again : )

Kathy- wow- what a beautiful song, and he has a fabulous voice! I just clicked on the link on my computer and the session came up. I did loose everyone 4-5 times, but everyone was still chatting when my computer came back up, so must just be my Wifi.

My daughter wants to go to the city (Chicago) on Saturday. She and my hubby (did not go this weekend) are going to look at a couple of places for sale. She has been renting- she wants a place that has a pool, has a workout center and she can have her dog.

Anyway, the sooner we check schedules, the sooner I can get invites out.

Hi Sharon!

Kandie and Kathy- hope you are feeling better today as the day progressed.

Catherine- your day with the kids sounds wonderful!

We had beef brisket that hubby put in the smoker. No snow here, but we had a downpour of rain and hail for about 15 minutes. When it started drizzling, Ray put the umbrella from the porch table on the steps and covered the smoker..... it was very touchy as the storm blew in, it was pretty windy, but once it stopped raining, all was good. My son sent a gift card to the local butcher/meat market for us, and hubby picked out the meat and prepared the rub. It was tasty. The girls roasted veg's. My youngest made Vegan brownies- and they were also tasty- hubby cleaned out more than 1/2 pan- he never gains a pound!

Jan- wow- you were really restricted! People here are so spoiled- and complain so much! We can go to the Forest Preserves and go for walks, go driving about... Chicago is pretty strict about the lakefront, but we can go to the little lake nearby here in the suburbs for a walk and no one says a word that I know of. How wonderful to be near a beach and water!

Shelly, we have been to Chicago a few years ago, unfortunately the day we arrived was a marathon or something so the hotel was packed out, the second day it rained all day and night, we did the gangster bus tour and the boat tour , when we left on the boat it was cloudy but as soon as we got out on the lake in poured, everyone ran inside leaving the poor commentator talking to herself, it was freezing.
We caught the Californian zephyr to SF, it was a fab journey, we had a lovely little cabin with en-suite, pretty small though but the food was really lovely. Our son collected us from Emeryville and he said it was an amazing sight seeing it pull into the station it’s so big being double decker.

I think Europe are the only ones who have a true lockdown, it’s been very strict, today there are people out and about , a bit scary after not seeing anyone, hope they keep their distance but I won’t hold my breathe as the spanish are very touchy feely.

Kathy I have only just read your comment about your hair and the first thing I noticed was how lovely your hair was I once remember you posting a video of you fishing with your son and your hair was short and you were side on. I was so happy to see you and so hope that you come on again. You are among friends here and thank you for trusting me as one of them.

I stayed on until after 10am our time I think..I had brunch to make. I finished my fairy card and also 2/3rds finished a mixed media face LOL. I will post both tomorrow...had a busy day today

Good Afternoon,

I'm just back from the dentist, I had a professional tooth cleaning and a check up.

We have some snow mixed with the rain coming down today and its really cold.

Kathy sorry you have an earache,

Kandie, those hankies are awesome.

Happy Monday, to you all.

Shelly, thanks again for connecting me up with you and everyone. It was such fun and I am happy to join in anytime...I will try and not chat all the time LOL.

Kathy, I also used to worry about how I looked on FaceTime and other apps. I only wear glasses for reading, and now my hair hasn't been cut or coloured for weeks and I haven't worn makeup properly (not that I wear much) for weeks and I can't be bothered to dress up, but I figured it is what it is and we are all probably in the same position. I also know that none of you judge. We are all keeping it real and we have a true connection and friendship through our craft and that is what I love. I feel I know some of you more than some friends I have known for years. It was just lovely to see everyone and put a face to a name, even though I see your avatars. Like Jan I used to worry about my accent but I can't change who I am or how I sound and I love accents and to just hear about people from different parts of the world. I was just sorry that your didn't feel well and hope that you are feeling better.

Kandie, you are a trooper...to have stayed on so long and to be unwell and not let on. I couldn't have done it. Was so good to see you too and see your dolls. Love them.   


It was also nice to say hi to some of your hubbies. I try and get mine to say hello if he's up to it. He asked me afterwards so who was who. Sharon, he asked who the young woman was who didn't know who was who with different names on their photos. I said that was Sharon...told you, you look so young. He knows how much I value this group and I chat about you all lots. He will support me anytime that I want to go on a chat.

Kathy, love the father and daughter videos. I also follow them on Youtube and post them on my FB occasionally. They are awesome. He's pretty ok too LOL. Naughty me LOL.

Shelly I am free this weekend. Let me know the time.

Also, I was chatting with Jan today and I am going to try and connect with her and anyone else who would like to join in and craft this Thursday. We have decided to do it at 9pm my time, which will be 3pm her time. It does mean that for some of you it will be 9am in the morning or maybe earlier. It would be great if some of you join us. I think Gracie might but once she knows the time now she may not LOL...Gracie, it will be early for you I think but still hope you join in. I am happy to go for a couple of hours. Let me know and I can add you to the list. We are thinking FaceTime this time as Jan doesn't have zoom yet.

Shelly, Karen said she didn't receive the email so Ann is checking if you had the right one. I didn't see her email until a few hours after we had ended our call so I couldn't send her the link. Next time I will forward it to her from my email just in case as she would love to come on.

I hope that you all had a lovely Mothers Day yesterday. I did, albeit very different to previous years but all boys remembered and I felt blessed. Today we've had a lazy day and I've been sorting out photos for family in the UK who have asked for some. I am the keeper of most of the family albums as my grandmother left them to me and now everyone is asking for copies. Gosh it took some time today even to just go through them all and I spent more time reminiscing than searching LOL.

I've finished my F cards and will post tomorrow and still thinking of the GA card...I may do that on Thursday when I craft with Jan and anyone else. Let me know if you are interested. I will still join in on the weekend...my social calendar is pretty clear these days LOL, although our restrictions have been lifted and from next week cafes and restaurants will reopen for up to 20 people and still social distancing. Not sure how that will go. Slow steps but our State is reopening. I'm quite happy to stay in my bubble for now.

Hugs to you all....you ladies rock

Feel a little bit happier, apparently not all regions on Spain have restrictions lifted, only a few, Madrid is still in lockdown so is Valencia and many others, at least they won’t all come down from Madrid for the weekend.

Jane, I would like to be on the call Thursday. Just Let me know. I think that will be 8:00 am my time.
Tell your DH thanks for saying young! LOL. Probably he meant who is the dingbat that didn’t know what was going on! LOL

Jayne, in that fishing video my hair was clipped up. So that's probably why you thought I had short hair.

Been a good morning!

Son number two stopped by with DH early Father's Day gift and retirement gift. He picked it up for all of us to give to him. Got him a walk behind self propelled EGO mower. We have a large tractor but always have been in need of something smaller to get at the hard to reach areas.

Spouse is very happy and surprised. This is cheering him up! I think he always believed his retirement would bring a big party and lots of friends over.
