Sending out love and hugs to everyone this April Fool's Day! I wish all of this "Corona" virus was just an April Fool's joke.

Sadie is still feeling poorly. She slinks away from us now because she thinks were going to force pills down her throat. Poor girl.

I have to get off this computer and get in my room and make cards. Such good therapy!

Crap I made grumpy cry. Uugghh. I was reminding him where my will is. I have a letter on my computer spelling out all my wishes and everything he needs to do. I have notes in there telling him how much I love him as well. When it comes to blood relatives there is my son and I. That's it. This is something we discuss about once a year.

My son found me frozen fruit. I put all the bags in the sink and washed them. The frozen fruit comes packaged in resealable plastic bags so I can just wash the whole bag to make it safe.

Now I need to clean the kitchen floor cause I dripped every WHERE! I am such a silly old thing some times. Blowing soap bubbles to everyone!

Default S2S20APR 'April showers'

Wow, it's April already. And tomorrow is the first Thursday of the month, so I am posting the monthly challenge a little early. This is certainly not original, but it is a fact of life every spring. So let's make lots of cards depicting rain, and anything that goes with rain, like boots, umbrellas, rainbows, etc and perhaps use an encouraging word, so we can cheer people up this scary and lonely spring. Last month I ordered a Stampin' up paper pumpkin for the first time and it had two stamp sets and other cool items that are great for this challenge. I never follow directions with card kits, so I tried something different than was on the insert. Here is my first sample card.

Cute card Ina and I have April showers stamps. Great challenge. Thank you.

Lynn, letting them kids know our wishes and where our Will is seems to be necessary at our stage of life. Let’s hope they don’t need to call on them too soon. Love the quote.

Jan, congratulations..wow 50 years...as DH would say you get less for life lol.

I had fun earlier crafting with someone we all know 15,649km away. Thanks Gracie. Hope you managed some sleep.

If anyone wants to do a virtual craft session, let me know. I think you can get up to 50 on FaceTime lol.

Happy day everyone.

I want to face time!
Congratulations, Jan! We always celebrate our engagement as it was Valentines Day.
Great challenge, Ina! And pretty card.
Lynn, we liked having a kitty when our DD had one as a girl. It always lay on my DH when he was napping in the recliner. That cat would stretch from practically on DH’s face over his chest as long as the cat could stretch! We used to laugh because DH really had no use for cats! Buffy loved him though!

Sharon, let’s work out a time and see who else wants to come on too. I think you are similar time to Gracie..will check. If not I will FaceTime you one day. Whoohoo. We shall craft together.  I’m happy to stay up later so it doesn’t affect your sleep.

Jayne,
I think there is two or three hours difference in Gracie and I. Not sure.Here it is 9 pm, and my iPad shows Sydney is 1pm.
So, I am getting ready for bed, yes we go to bed between 9 & 10! LOL
And you are probably having lunch! So a good time is your morning say 11:00 am and my evening, 7 pm? We are on central time. Are you on same time as Sydney?

Hi Sharon, check the Alpha thread as I’m going to give it a whirl with some of the ladies that asked me on there first this weekend. We are 3 hours behind Sydney. Be ready Saturday late arvo...lol. Then if that works, I will see who would like a day to craft on this thread. Maybe we could do Ina’s challenge altogether. I would like Jan to be able to come on too. I’m getting up early this weekend to test this out so I hope it works lol.

Happy day everyone.

Oopps! Congrats Jan!

Sorry everyone I really have been stuck in my head! I was having a talk with grumpy. I need to be planning a month at a time now and it is taking me time to wrap my head around it. Grumpy was at Costco so he got toilet paper and we will keep it in my crap room. That will cover all three of us just in case. My living in the country and camping knowledge is kicking in. If the power goes out grumpy is fine. He will lose power but not water. Here I will lose both. I usually keepabout 24 water bottles just in case. I do have a single burner camping stove and a small propane bottle.

I don't know if anyone remember the big ice storm Toronto had around Christmas a few years ago. Yup I was boiling water for tea and hot chocolate on my balcony. It was cold enough that you could store the stuff from your freezer on your balcony. The twins and their parents got my perishables. I cooked up frozen stew on the balcony for me. Yup I really am an odd duck. This is why itmusnok with me that Santa brings me coal every year! Lol

Big huge hugs and soap bubble kisses

Oh right. I will have to listen to everyone and have them tell me which app to put on my windows computer. I should also test the app. The big cable provider lost internet to a large area. I have noticed the circuits being overloaded on my cell calls. My internet has not been down but there have been slow downs. Understandable since this is a big and dense city.

I know sweet pea has been working from home and gets frustrated with the lack of business facilities in her apartment. She is NOT happy that there is NOT a Starbucks coffee downstairs! Lol

OK ideas please!

I want to do Easter dinner in the 10th. So what that will mean that I will get delivery to here. Grumpy will get delivery to his. We will call and have a good long talk. I know the Easter bunny won't make it but what can we do? Remember we are in the same city but we will each be at our own place. I wonder.. Maybe if it is warm we can do it on our balcony??

Any ideas appreciated.

Big huge hugs and soap bubble kisses

Lynn, if you have an iPad, iMac or iPhone we can do a Group FaceTime video or some can just do audio. We can do it in our pjs, wear earrings, no makeup, or with makeup...whatever everyone wants to do. I’m at a stage where I just go with my daily mood. I actually washed my hair today and have dangly earrings in lol. If I call everyone I will need either their email (I think this is easier and safer) or cellphone.

We will then just have to agree a day and time that suits everyone. I am hoping that Ina and Kathy and Jan and as many off this thread can join in. Ina we could do your challenge or one of the ones we’ve missed..what do you think? I’m happy to coordinate the calls unless someone else wants to do it. I’m easy. I just would like to say hello to everyone during this crazy time.

Lynn, on Easter dinner, I would make it simple. What deliveries do you have and that go to Grumpy’s home too. We like Japanese or pizza takeaway here. The important thing is that you make the call and sit and chat as though together. I did craft with our poppets yesterday virtually. It was so good and we had lots of laughs.

Those cruise ships won’t leave our shores..eek. One renounced on their deal with our State Premier even though we flew all their passengers back to Europe and took the sick ones into our hospital. There’s 8,500 total crew on board the ships. Our Premier and Government are trying to work out how they can leave and go back to their home ports. We keep taking more people off them and into hospital or putting them in hotels every day. It’s becoming a nightmare.

Happy weekend everyone and keep well.

once I was almost at work when I realised I didn’t have my earring on, I turned round and went home to get them, luckily it was only ten minutes away, I just feel naked without them, Steve something tells me when we are out that I haven’t got them on, I have a mild panic! I still wear them everyday.

Me too Jan. I feel naked without my earrings. I’ve got dangly ones on today for a change.

Do you fancy a virtual craft get together one week? Just for a couple of hours. I am prepared to get up earlier if the ladies can stay up lol...not sure how it will work otherwise you and I may have to do one together lol. At least we are up now at the same time.

That would be great, my craft room isn’t in the villa so night time isn’t an option for me as I have to go upstairs on the roof, that sounds weird, ha,ha,
not sure the world is ready to see me in my old dressing gown! It’s my winter evening look, the family are used to it because of the time difference, when they wake up and ring it’s evening here and I’m all cosy in my dressing gown!

Jayne, Steve wants to know if you loan your dangling earnings from Bet Lynch!!!

I made him laugh, I was telling him how I’ve been listening to my 60’s music and that Donovan’s mellow yellow was stuck in my brain especially the bit, I like treacle bananas, he said that’s not the words, I dint believe him so he googled it, it should be I like electric bananas!! Steve thought for years the song,it’s in his Kiss was it’s in his skin, he didn’t believe me when I told him!!

not sure the world is ready to see me in my old dressing gown! It’s my winter evening look, the family are used to it because of the time difference, when they wake up and ring it’s evening here and I’m all cosy in my dressing gown!
Maybe we can get the ladies to stay up and we get up in the morning/arvo lol. We have to find a way to make it work. It was so fun today seeing Gracie and Sharon and crafting...after we had spent an hour chatting lol

Steve thought for years the song,it’s in his Kiss was it’s in his skin, he didn’t believe me when I told him!!


Not quite to Bet Lynch’s standards but they were dangly lol. I felt dressed up even though I wasn’t. I also did some more cards for VSN.

I do that with songs...I sing something and am told it’s not that and find out DH was right...he’s always 99.9% right..it’s so annoying lol

I’m crafting the rest of today. I should do my aerobics video but can’t be bothered. I’ve been awake since 3am!

Happy Sunday everyone

Lynn as they say..there’s always more than one way to skin a cat.....I’m looking into other options for people with androids and not FaceTime. Watch this space....in fact you are usually good at finding this stuff out if you get bored .

We don’t want to use Houseparty as I was told people are hacking into that and Zoom only allows us to stay on for 40 mins but we could try that for starters. I have zoom and can set up a meeting....unless someone has the upgraded option. Check out google Meets too. We shall find a way.

Did you all connect on FaceTime? I have an iPhone and iPad, I will have to check if the signal is good upstairs, I have a connection for the internet on my PC but we have WIFI down stairs, we found when we moved in the the signal from my craft room was blocked to the house by the flat roof, it has metal reinforcements and it was blocking the signal so we Had to have a separate line put in.
I was worried last night as the signal was low, Dread the thought of not Internet!!!! our son rang and it cut out but when he rang back he could see me but I could only see a blurry image with the thingy in the middle whizzing round saying reconnecting.

Our DIL is working from home and was hosting a directors meeting, she arranged it so they boys had their online lessons at the same time, thinking it would be quiet, as they would be in their bedrooms. she said she can’t imagine what the others thought as the youngest was doing bible classes and they were told to sing as loud as they could, followed by PE, lots of jumping around, the eldest was quiet for his hours lesson but then decided to practice his ukulele, she said next time she will get our son to take them out in the hills for a long walk.

Jan we did use FaceTime on our iPads. Some had phones I think and one could only get audio. It worked really well.

I can vouch that Gracie eats lots of choccie and liquorice lol. She made me so hungry that I had to go and get pizza...for brekkie lol. It was such fun. You will love it.

Hugs everyone

You will have to organise it, Steve tried to ring me on FaceTime when I was just upstairs and it worked but then started cutting out, if that happens I will have to come down and sit in the conservatory.

Gracie I love liquorice, I used to eat the whole bag if I opened them but now days I have to limit myself, our DIL buys me the raspberry soft ones, delicious!

We are not buying chocolate any more as we have put weight on with not walking, just waiting for the pool to warmup so we can get doing lengths.

Sharon I have t seen you at the T party recently! I’ve been making an Art journal page as they have a challenge to use Geometric shapes, I’ve enjoyed getting messy and cleaning my craft room I found two half sheets of photo paper so now I just need to get motivated again.
