Looking forward to seeing your jacket, although I am guessing that the thought of wearing it at the moment brings you out in a sweat!!
I have the same prob with a snoring DH but, like you, if I can nod off before he starts, I'm set for the night! Hope you have a good one!! xxxx

Hahahaha ..... yes it would be just like climbing into an oven, turned up to full heat - that would not be very comfortable! 😰πŸ˜₯πŸ˜ŽπŸŒ…
But I had an excellent sleep of 6.5 hours!

I'm still hereπŸ‘

Good morning Purple, I have just signed in, and am sitting in my chair, being a little lazy. DD4, 4 dgd's and myself headed over to a Whyalla, hoping to go swimming at the beach there, and perhaps see a pod of dolphins playing near the shore! We didn't get a swim. Ecause by the time we got there, the skies were very dull, cloudy and there was almost gale force winds - they were so strong, that we almost had to secure the girls to us somehow, so that the twins didn't get blown away! I also managed to get a slight case of windburn, so my face stinging a little at the moment, but will probably have turned to a slight tan by tomorrow! 😊
Unfortunately, the dolphins had no intention of coming to see us, I think they might have been hunting for some food, or the weather was too rough, and they have probably taken notice of when the humans are at the beach; so we will go across there again, when the weather is more suitable for the dolphins to come closer the the shallow water! xoxoxo

How exciting, I hope she doesn't forget!! It would have been great if you could have met up with us in London. Never mind, there might be another opportunity, fingers crossed!!! xxx

I hope so as well, and yes, there might be such a possibility and hope is eternal so I am always hopeful! xoxoxoπŸ‘€πŸ‘Œ

Aah I have now caught up with the chats, until the postings begin again! I had gone to bed, as I didn't sleep at all last night, so I was hoping to get to sleep before DH did, cos once he is a leep, he begins snoring almost immediately, then it is impossible for me to get to sleep; that is why I remain awake a lot of the time! I am not sure if I will head off back to bed, or just stay out here for a bit longer, perhaps have a spritzer, or 2, one can of lemonade gives me two fairly decent sized spritzers, and taste wonderful - no dead vinegar taste, or smell!

Have a great day everyone, I think I will stay up for a little longer, and perhaps do some more knitting, I don't have much further to do, before my jacket is finished, it just got a bit tricky working out how much length was needed for me, as I seem to be a tad above the height allowed in most adult knitting patterns, then I had to allow for the extra yarn that would be needed; now having got through that, the work is coming along wonderfully. So now it is Goodnight from me, unless I return later in the night! xoxoxo

That will be a lovely cosy shawl, keep going!! Shame about the Chai Latte, never had one but might try it one day, Costa's do it over here xxxx

I think you will enjoy it, there are different flavours available, and one is vanilla, which I don't really like the taste of; I like a more spicy flavoured Chai, that really makes me feel quite good after I have had the first one! I have also been known to make a jug of Chai, and also Iced Tea, and keep them in the fridge during the hot months, that way I remember to have enough to drink throughout the day! xoxoxo

I'm back and I shopped......

Ooooohhhhhh ....... that all looks so delicious; I am not buying any more fibre at the moment, putting funds aside for our trip in May. Shame I couldn't talk dh into extending the trip to include some special parts of UK! It would have been fun!

Almost forgot to mention a very good bonus for me, that happened when I was at my fibre group a week ago. Three ladies came in to our gallery for a wander, and they were very interested in our electric spinning wheels, I was using mine while the ladies we there, but the other spinner was doing something else. These women were up from Adelaide, on the Court Circuit, and one of theM has 2 Angora rabbits, and asked if their fur could be spun, imagine my excitement! I very quickly assured her that the fur could definitely be spun, and that I actually had about 100gms that I was in the process of spinning; then she asked if I would like the fur from the grooming of her rabbits, so of course I said yes! They had to leave then, but she will be gathering the brushing from her rabbits, and will deliver it the next Court Circuit!
I was very fortunate that I met this very kind person, because they almost didn't visit the Gallery, as they had no idea that it even existed! I am so happy, now I might end up with enough to make myself something more than a hat, with the current 100gms! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜† xoxoxo

Yes, I love my Chai Tea Lattes! Safe travels today! xxxooo

Chai lattes have become my go to drink now, as I am no longer able to drink coffee; but during the summer, I usually have mine as an Iced Chai Latte, it is absolutely delicious on a melting hot day! xoxoxo

Brenda, who rented the Vancouver Island cottage to us, would definitely agree that the Elk are worse. I think they ate 3 or 4 bushes just while we were there, and most of her gardens. Plus they are as big as horses!

Get everyone tested but don't let it rule your life. It's just something to watch for. My granny had diabetes, mum is pre-diabetic, so my brother and sister and I try to keep up our diet and exercise, but we haven't let it change our lives.
I bet those glasses look pretty.

Good advice, continue to enjoy your life, while looking after yourself as well as you can! xoxoxo

Good morning from Port Hope Ontario Canada. It is 6:07 am EST and 2'C (36'F). It was up to 7'C (44'F) yesterday. DD went to the back to put the lid on the composter and didn't need to put on her winter coat. She did need her boots. We've lost 2 feet of snow and the bottom 6 inches are wet and mushy.
Timmy's is selling butter tarts now. No, I did not have one for breakfast. I did have a lovely brioche bun with butter. When I asked them to warm it up, they popped it in the toaster and burnt the edges a little. But still yummy. Now if only I could convince Timmy's to bring back the Chai Tea Latte like the one I had down in Edmonds at Starbucks. Timmy's used to sell them, and I miss them.
I was able to do another couple of stripes on my shawl. Over 400 stitches per row now. I'll be able to fling it around my neck a few times.
Happy Friday before a long weekend!

Morning ladies. I managed to pack some of my craft stuff yesterday with the help of my sil and then we went to the dump and got rid of another boot (trunk) load of stuff. June, that grimy chair that was in the hall way has gone sil was very good at sorting, maybe because of no attachment to the stuff
We had a viewing last night which just had one minus, but nevertheless an important where to store DH's bike and as he uses it to commute we do need to consider it. Two more viewings today and hopefully all will be positive, on paper they are perfect...

Hi Rebecca, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you getting a positive viewing, of at least one property, with everything required being present! xoxoxo

I often think it would be fun to move house again, this is the longest we've stayed in any one house since1968!! Then I read how you, Pam and Rebecca are suffering and firmly decide to stay put! However, none of you have a choice in one way or another so I can only say that I wish I could wave a magic wand and have you all happily settled in your new homes. That wasn't much help, was it? 😁 xxxxxxx

Wouldn't it be great, if we could do those kinds of things by just joining our thoughts, and provide the help when it is needed, to whomever needs said help? I think a lot of things would go a whole lot smoother for everybody! My thoughts, and hopes for an increasingly smooth transition from one house to the next, for those of us are in the process, I hope that you all become settled in your new abodes, in a very reasonable time, and with no additional problems from the other parties involved! xoxoxo

What a lovely way to celebrate your anniversary, rubies are beautiful! Poor Felix what a trying day.. It's so wonderful that he will be able to see better at such a young age. I was "blind" most of my early school years, the nuns thought I was compromised and failed me in first grade... but I couldn't see the board and they never checked eyesight in those days. Wasn't till Gr. 5 that I got glasses.

I didn't get glasses until I was 28, but during the years before that, it was easy for me to see extremely long distances, but reading regular sized typing was a bit difficult for me. I also used to get in a bit of trouble at school, for the size of my writing, which all of the teachers thought was tiny, I thought it was regular sized! Now my eyes seem to be returning to what is normal sight for me, so I now only need my glasses for close things. πŸ˜†
