Look what we woke up to this morning, although the moon is out in the second picture we keep having snow showers. Think we should have gone shopping yesterday.


I actually saw a photo with almost the exact same circumstances, but with visible falling snow flakes. I actually thought it was a black & white photo, and asked the sender of the photos about the photo. 😆😂 I then had another look at the photo, and saw the faint colour on the paves and the grass, in the photo! I am gradually getting a clearer idea of what it must be like to live in the snowy regions of the world, and next year I might even get to find out in person!

I hope you got your shopping done! xoxoxo

Yes. I don't think it was the alcohol, I think it was the sugar content, but I didn't sleep last night! Sugar rush.


Well that is not good. I get migraines now, if I have to much sugar ...... so looks like the pavlova are off my menu now! 😕😢

I haven't heard many Christmas carols this year. I thought they would start playing them in the stores after December 1st, but so far, nothing.


The town near me hasn't even got their decorations up yet! Apparently they don't have enough money to do that! 😨😲

All of my mum's family live in this province so we have traveled to see family since I was little.
Some more of my family live in Iowa, so we also had to travel to see them. And I have some cousins who live in BC, but they travel here to see me.
That's probably why I don't see my family except on holidays.
It's nice for you that yours live close by.


It is good. I have to travel to see my brothers and sisters, so that only happen when we need to head south, or we decide to take a short break! 😊

I have changed my mind, my eyes are wanting to close now, so I am heading off to bed, and will do some catchup later. xoxoxo

Hello all, I have not been been on line for a few days now, and thought I had better get my act back together! I have been so exhausted overy the last few days, I couldn't even get out of my own way. I think it is because we have had colder weather than what I am used too, but I have now taken myself in hand, am fighting back!

I am now going to begin to catchup on about 50 pages, to see what you have all been getting up to! xoxoxo

Morning everyone. My daughter was home for her Christmas visit this past week. Always nice when she can come home. Would be lovely if she lived closer, but glad she is close enough to visit a few times a year.
She was going through my gifting basket. She chose several things including dishcloths, hats, and scarves. Then she spied a pair of fingerless mitts that she just loved. Cracked me up I hated the way the yarn looked after it was knit up. The mitts fit her perfectly and she left the house wearing her new treasure. I have found so often not to frog things as one woman's trash is another woman's treasure.

Hello Jinx, it is great to see ones children, and the grand children! I am very fortunate, in that all of my grand children live very close to me, so until the kids are old enough for kind and school, we pretty much get to see them whenever we feel like visiting their parents, or they visit us. DD4 thought they were going to have to move away, for her DH to get work (she was getting sick of the fly in / fly out jobs); but they couldn't afford to make the move! I would have missed them terribly.

Hi all. Just now getting here today (or rather tonight). Had quite the night overnight and into this afternoon. Was very nicely sleeping away for a couple of hours when Mr. Ric woke me up (around 12:45 a.m.) saying we needed to go to the hospital as his heart was acting funny -- like it did before he had the cardio conversion 5 years ago. So I woke up, got dressed and off we went -- luckily the hospital is only 10 minutes away. They hooked him up and he was indeed in Afib, put him on some medications and decided to keep him overnight. We both figured he was in good hands, so he sent me home around 3 a.m. I got a few more hours of sleep then went back to the hospital. While I was sleeping away, he wasn't. But the doctor decided to do another cardio conversion, which happened around 11 a.m. this morning. We had to stick around for another couple of hours so they could monitor him. All is good now, but he's very sleepy from his lack of sleep in the hospital. So great that he can actually feel when this is happening and we can get him the care he needs. We're both so thankful he's okay. We went for lunch before heading home as we were both pretty hungry. He's asleep in front of the TV right now.
Crazy day! xxxooo

Is DH still doing ok, after the cardio conversion? I hope he stays well for a long time this time, as well! xoxoxo

Everyone seems to be knitting hats right now...my mom's hat is an easy knit and fits well. She blocks them on dessert plates having threaded a string through the rib headband pulling it into a snug little circle on the bottom of the plate. This way they start out looking like berets. I prefer mine unblocked like the photo below.

I love that hat! I think I might have to make one similar to match the jumper I am making! I might just need it next year. 😊😶

Evening quiet time is when the kitties all pile up around me and I get to peacefully knit for a little while.


My quiet time disappeared today, I have 4 dgd's sleeping over tonight. DH is keeping the dogs happy, and I get to sleep with the twins - they still get a little upset when they don't know where their mum is, the younger twin thought she was lost and I had to convince her that mummy was at home with daddy! She was getting quite upset about it! 😕

A kayak would be fun, I can't swim and I would feel safe on the road at least Judi. xoxox


Ok, stick with the car, but wait until the water has gone down a bit, at least, and stay safe! xoxoxo

You do better than I do with the lottery, all I keep getting is free tickets. I am syphoning a wee amount off the pension for that "big adventure" one day. I'm very disciplined and am keeping my fingers out of it!
If I ever do win the big one, you sisters will all get cheques... promise! xoxoxo


I will continue sending positive vibes for your success! 😉😎😆

Tonight we have had the most wonderful thunderstorm, with some extremely loud thunder cracks, a very impressive lightning display, and about 3 hours worth of the heaviest rain; now (about 4 hours later), the storm has moved on to the next region, and the silence is deafening ..... or it might just be the annoying buzzing that is almost always present! 😕😦

I am the only one in this household who likes the loud storms that we get, DH & Mint don't like the loudest crashes of thunder, and Andre knows nothing about them, because he can't hear them anymore, poor little bloke! 😐😯

If only, she's been here a couple of hours and already I'm biting my tongue. Did a shepherd's pie for dinner, well what she ate looked lost on a tea plate, why do I bother? She'll probably want something else be bedtime so she can go find something. xx


That's the way to do it, after all she is an adult, and should be able to fend for herself! xoxoxo
