Dinner is usually for like Christmas or Thanksgiving, or big family dinner, so could be in middle of day or in the evening.

Haha, Kathy, I read that you had a packages of kisses for breakfast, dinner, and supper.  And what are you going to do with the extra one?

I'm the same as Sharon - breakfast, lunch, and supper (dinner for special days).

My niece called my mom today while she waited in the drive thru covid testing center in Wisconsin today. She's been sick a few days and figured it was just sinus stuff but I guess she needs to find out for sure.

Welcome home Shelly!

We have a beautiful sunny day here, so we got out for a walk this afternoon. The temps are cooler though.

Yesterday we had 589 covid cases diagnosed in our province of B.C. Wed. was 425. The numbers are getting so much more than they used to be. I sure hope we do not have to go on lockdown again.

Working on a card for one of the challenges and going to make some muffins in a little while.

When I was growing up we always called it supper, I think. I rarely call it that anymore. It is dinner pretty much all the time now.

Kathy, I like a visual to know what I will be looking for. Thanks, lol....

Jan, glad you are happy with your new oven and have got the shots over with. Hope you don't suffer too bad with having gotten them.

My Dad was always skinny and so is my brother. My mum and I not so much, lol.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Going to try to get some more Falliday Fest cards made this weekend.

Wow! Ann, you're already sending out Christmas cards! You are so amazing! I sure hope you're feeling better.

I didn’t sleep too well both my arms are sore! 

It’s raining but we will still go out for our walk if only to see if anything is open on the seafront. 

In the medical centre yesterday a woman was talking loudly to Anna the receptionist, who doesn’t speak very much English, why do people think if they speak louder they will be understood, anyway she was saying she needed enough pills for lockdown! There’s no lockdown as such, why don’t people listen to facts instead of gossip.

If she had asked Anna she would just updated her online prescription the same as she has done for everyone else!

Kathy I could eat a whole bag of peanut M&Ms, I have to take a few and put the bag away or else they would be gone!

I keep resisting the Christmas chocolates that have appeared everywhere, they would never last until Christmas!

Jan, chocolate and churros sounds yummy! I don't think I know that song, Ghost Town. How funny that Steve started singing that on your walk with everything deserted. I hope your arms feel better. I find when I do too much work, I'll suffer for a week or so. It's tough getting older...I'll guess I'll have to craft lots more and work a lot less!

Hello ladies! I have been very busy with my little man and been quite tired at the end of each day. I love being able to spend so much time with him though. His smile makes everything seem better.
Life has thrown us a bit of a curve ball and things are very stressful right now. I have been riding an emotional roller coaster.  I haven't had time to get into my craft room but plan to this afternoon. Hoping to get some FF challenges done.

A gorgeous day here today! The sun is shining and its up to nearly 60 already. My nephew is going back to his apartment in Philly tomorrow so his mom was gathering groceries enough for him to not have to go shopping if any rioting takes place. I gave him some fruit cups and $20 for emergency stuff. 

DH is turkey hunting today so he'll be tired tonight. He is looking and moving more like his dad did every day.

Annette you aren't riding alone on that coaster! Hang in there. That's all we can do is ride it out.

(((Annette)))...I so hope things improve for you. Life sucks sometimes.  

 I was so glad to wake early and learn that you and Sharon were online crafting. Was good to pop on and see some of you...fun...plus I made 3 cards.  Bonus. I’m sure I will hit the wall later but when you are awake at 3.30am, what else to do but get up and craft with friends lol.

Jan, hope that your arm is better today. We find that happens after jabs.

Annette sure hope things improve for you! I'm so glad you have the little man with you! Such fun! I loved seeing the video of him walking when we were on Zoom.

Jayne, Sharon, Annette, Shelly, and Ann for a minute (LOL) it was fun seeing you on Zoom today for our impromptu crafting. 

Jayne, hope you get in a nap today!

I'm working on cards with friends from Wisconsin over Messenger right now!

I've just finished uploading my cards.  I'm starting to get bleary eyes LOL.  No more crafting for me today.  I'm heading out for a walk and to blow the cobwebs away...well, more like strolling LOL.  Have fun everyone who is still crafting.

Default Hello

Waving hello to all!

 It is a beautiful day here and we have a wonderful forecast for tomorrow as well.  DD1 wanted to go for a hike at a State Park about 1 1/2 hours away..so we drove there and quite a few other people had the same idea : )  We found a remote area to hike- approx 3 miles, then decided to head home instead of staying and going to the original location.....  We wore masks on the trail and others -about 1/2 did and the other half did not.0

 Hubby is home-flew home tonight on a pretty empty plane from Florida.  We will quarentine and get tested for Covid next week even if asymptomatic.  

 I was happy to be able to Zoom with other Alpha ladies for a bit after DD1 headed home today- made a card and finished up another. I am unpacked and laundry started, but I have some cleaning to do- a bit of dust has moved in and tomorrow I will tackle that!

Ann- hope you are feeling better ASAP!

Jan- wow that your area is deserted!  Hope your arm feels better tomorrow!

Annette- fun to see you on ZOom and see that little guy!  You are busy watching him!!!

Gracie- hope you had a great visit with your granddaughter for her Burthday!

Jayne- hope you get a nap today : )  

Kathy- did DH come home with a turkey or two?  Hope there is no rioting!

Shirl- what type of muffins did you bake?  Hope you do not have to go into lockdown!  If your area is like ours, even in lockdown we can go for walks in the neighborhood and not see a person- or you can talk to a neighbor across the street and speak curb to curb...without any fear : )

Kandie- hope you are well and hope you post the gorgeous journals you are making on your wall!

Melodie- we used to get a big Sunday meal mid day and we called it supper.....  Now, we call our meals B-fast, lunch and dinner.  Although, I do not eat in the AM, so have Brunch frequently and then dinner : )

Waving hello to all- Catherine- where are you???

Shelly

Our son in SF went into work last week to sort out some documents for his new boss and they were doing COVID tests so he had one, he said if he doesn’t hear anything on Monday he is negative, fingers crossed. 

I was in pain last night, my arm, shoulder and neck were stiff from the shots, I took paracetamol before bed! Feels a little better this morning! Steve’s been calling me weak knees , ha,ha, meaning pathetic! No sympathy at all!

Shelly you must be pleased hubby is home , hope the tests are negative! Sounds like a lovely hike in the state park, I just wish we didn’t have to wear masks when walking as it doesn’t feel as if you are getting any fresh air!

Oh my goodness Jan, Steve sounds like my Tom! Tom always says, "Suck it up" or "Walk it off!" No sympathy there either. I hope you feel better soon! 

I just uploaded my E card and I love the fabric image I found for my card. It should be a stamp!

So last Thursday we had rain and it brought down red sand from the Sahara, we’re still cleaning the tiles around the pool but this is steve half way through cleaning the pool

If that wasn’t enough we had the day of the flying ants yesterday, always happens after lots of rain after summer, thousands of them, I’m running round trying to kill them all while mopping the tiles!

Shirl, I’ve been printing a lot of free patterned paper lately.  I’ve been using Neenah Astro Bright 65# paper and it works marvelous.

So much chatter I’ve missed.  I am caught up now, I think.  Good morning, everyone.

I agree about not listening to the political stuff on tv.  That’s why I have Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, lol!  DH thought it was a waste of money before.  Now he says do you have anything on your streaming services we can watch?  Aha!  Vindication!  

I agree on the stressors right now.  Crafting is such a wonderful way to get some release. Or reading.

I finished DD2’s journal, then went back over DD1’s.  I’ve learned so many new things since I did the first one.  Now I’m remaking DD1’s journal, lol.  The gift that never stops being updated, lol.  

Hey, I was proud of myself, I actually did four challenges this last week.  I did combine them in one project, is that cheating?  Sometimes the challenges just all fall into a pattern that can be combined into one.  I love it when that happens!

DH surprised me by buying me the Brother Scanncut.  He knows I’m having so much trouble cutting things with my right hand.  Now we have to see if it lives up to the hype.

And one day I will get the electric die cut machine.  I’m having so much difficulty trying to crank the handle on the new one I bought.  Maybe next year for Christmas.

I love that rubber band fortune!  What was the person on who wrote that one?  It does look like a mask, though, when I looked at it again.

We’ve had the high 60s and low 70s this week, so wonderful outside.  But the leaves are falling like crazy.  Yesterday I was trying to craft when I heard all this roaring.  The neighbors right next to us on each side and immediately across the street were all on their monster lawnmowers with leaf attachments and were buzzing around sucking up leaves.  It was like being in front of a jet engine, ohmygosh the noise!  I got such a headache!  Thank goodness they all finished at the same time and it got quiet around here again.

Happy Sunday all! I'm going to try to get off this computer and craft! So much beauty to see and lots of chat to read.

Default Hello

Happy Sunday!

Another beautiful day here before the cold front comes through!  My goal for the day is to make another Falliday card and to get the 1st floor dusted- Roomba is doing it's thing now- wanted to wait until the dog left first, ans he leaves alot of his short hair here! LOL

 Kandie- I love the Scan n Cut, and it does so much more than I use it for!  There are lots of tutorials on You Tube on how to use it- nice nice gift : )  I do not print much DP, as I had the hairbrained idea to get a laser printer last time around, and the refills are like $100 each!  

 Jan- so sorry for hubby's attitude towards your pain! His family tells everyone, "You'll be fine'!  But he has stopped that since back and neck surgery and is a bit more compassionate. 

Hubby is off to Katie's in Chicago- he is helping her 'mount' the TV onto her brick wall.  And, helping her move her new treadmill that weighs 400 lbs!!! She had to get up really early and worked at Starbucks. SHe had not worked there for quite a while since Covid, but everyday gets a free coffee and food item during Covid- what a great perk for working there!!!

Off to dust so I can get creative!!!

Shelly

Another bag of kisses gone! DH is hiding the last two bags. I'm thinking of freezing some. 

We went to Target and Best Buy. Didn't buy anything. When I got home my tiny little mother was taking Dad for a walk in his wheelchair. I went down and met them and finished the walk by pushing him. The main road is paved, but their lane is not and it slants uphill going home. It was tough for me. I'm not sure how she does it, but she pushed him up it once. He has a motorized chair but he just cannot figure out how to make it move. Such a shame. 

Beautiful day here. We are going to cut mom's trumpet vine back a bit and tie it up because it is getting heavier and leaning a lot

Shelly, the muffins are from a Woman's World magazine called: Berry Granola Muffins. And you have a roomba! How great is that!

Kandie, thanks for letting me know about the astrobright for printing patterns.
And you now have a scan and cut. How wonderful!

Annette, sorry you have been on a roller coaster. I hope the ride ends soon!

Kathy, you will be tuckered out from helping your mom. You will need a little bit of chocolate!

Gracie, just saw your E card. Love!

Jan, hope your soreness is getting better. Yuck on all those ants! 

We walked today and all the sidewalks were covered in crispy leaves. A very cool day here, but the sun was out. It is just that we did not get out till 3:30 and there was not much sun left to shine on us. 

As of 10 p.m. last night, no one is supposed to be visiting friends in their homes. Supposed to last for two weeks, to see if we can get the covid number of cases down.

I'm paying for the stuff I did today. Lots of pain in my lower back and left leg. I think with all my back problems that I may have a pinched nerve or sciatica issues. I gave up and took pain meds. Hope it  kicks in.

Kathy I hope your back is feeling better today, why do we all overdo it when we know we will suffer later!

Kandie you made me smile with the gift that never stops being updated, so funny.
Wow how lovely of your DH to buy you the scan n cut, lucky you, I’m interested to know how you get on with it!

Shirl the muffins sound delicious, 

I have a roomba type vacuum, we call her Dora the explorer,   sometimes she tries to escape into the conservatory and gets stuck on the step! Very good for going underneath beds!
