Good evening from Port Hope Ontario Canada. It is 5:54 pm EDT and 23’C (73’F). It’s been hot and humid all day. I booked today off. DD and I went on the hunt for the perfect butter tart today. Our first test was Kawartha Butter Tart Factory in Warsaw, who also,had awesome apple fritters. DD got chased by a hungry hornet. I just put one of apple fritters on top of the car and let it have a bite of the sugar on the fritter while I put the rest of the tarts and fritters in the car. Then it flew away.
On the way home we had a bit of a scare when my right front brake ceased up and was squealing terribly. Of course I’m on a back country road and it would have been difficult to describe to a tow truck where Imwas, so I kept driving slowly to the next road. When I put the brake on for the stop sign, the brake I ceased and the squealing stopped. So we drov e home. Now I have to call the garage behind me to get an appointment to have them fix it.
Good evening from Port Hope Ontario Canada. It is... (show quote)

Those tarts all look delicious, but I would leave the pumkin treat for anybody else th hat wanted it!

That all sounds like really good news for your DDs, Judi! xxxooo

Thanks Pam, it i is great news for both girls, except I made a slight error about dd5's situation! She hasn't got a position , as I thought she had, the people w who are successful in ultimately being successful in gaining a position, will be notified on Friday, when the training is completed. I thought the top boss was giving her a position, because of her willingness in attending the interview, even though she had been notified with the bare minimum time to get herself ready, and arrive at the interviews site before the interview process began; and then being given incorrect details, regarding the location of the second interview. All of the interviewed w will be notified after the end of the 4 days of training; to begin working, beside a mentor for at least the first week,, then on their own!

So will everyone please keep the fingers crossed, or toes, if you need your hands for other activities; that she is in the successful group, for the first 6 applicants! xoxoxo

Hello all, I had a wonderful phonecall from youngest dd, about a job she had been invited to attend a group interview. This venture did not begin in the best way possible; so beginnig at the start of the whole diasco, she got the notification of the interview. About 30 minutes (or less) before the interview process was due to begin. No other applicant from her local Job Search Centre attended, because none of them had been informed of this event! The best thingnabout the interview process, was that dd was shortlisted to be in the 25 people to go to the next step of the elimination process; she was also commended for attending the interview on such short notice, and was told by the intervier, that it was one of the reasons that she was shortlisted to go to the second part of the process.

Everything went downhill from that point; she was given an info sheet, which included the date, time and address where the next interview was to be held. So on that day she arrived at the address that was on her information sheet, only to be informed that she was in the wrong place, so she showed the receptionist the informatoion sheet, just to prove that the error wasn't her fault! She contacted the correct place, once she knew where she was meant to be, only to be told that the interview process had begun, and it was too late for her to get there. She was understandably extremely upset about the whole thing, because she thought she had missed out on a very good chance of having full time employment! full!

She received a phonecall yesterday morning, informing her that she was included in the 25 people who were chosen to continue on to the 4 day training, beginning later today (Tuesday), and that she was to attend for her Medical assessment, including drug & alcohol testing. The Receptionist, whom shenhad dealt with on the day of the mighty stuffup, actually contacted the boss of the company conducting the interviews, to find out what was going on, and also mentioned how upset dd had been, when she was told she was at the wrong place for the interview. The boss then instructed the worker, that because of all the things that had gone wrong for her; he wanted to give her a fair chance to be one of those who were getting a job! So she begins the Job Training later today, at 11:00am S.A. time, and begins work next week. Now dd is one verry happy young woman, and is really looking forward to having a job!

Continuing on the new job status amongst my girls, DD4 has also joined the workforce. She got herself a job waitressing, at one of the local hotels, for the dinner shift. She has already had her trial shifts, and was paid cash in hand for now, which will be setup properly once the owners get back from a short holiday! She quite likes it also, which is a bonus, and is already planning on doing the alcohol accreditation course, so that she can work in other areas of the hotel.

All I need now is for dd3 to be able to find a job, then everything will begin to get easier for her family also! She, and her partner, have just purxhased a block of land, and are in the process of choosing a plan for their house, and once that has been built, and is ready to move in, the will finally be in a house that is not derelict, and is also large enough for them to fit in comfortably! Things are finally beginning to fall into place for my girls, so there will be a little less for me to worry about!

I have had a weird day now just trying to finish some laundry then going to the store I have no sugar for my coffee so I didn’t have any today.....

I would love a cup of coffee, I love the taste of it; but I only have tea, or hot chocolate now, because I am very sensitive to caffeine, and I usually end up having to go to bed after having any of it; now sweet biscuits do the same thing , so that is another food item that I like, that has been removed from my treats.

Oh my gosh I'm so sorry for the book y'all 😵😱

No need to worry about the length of a post, just imagine that you are talking, in person, then it won't seem to be as long .... the spoken word is always shorter than the written word .... and besides you had to get it off your chest!
I hope your arm is feeling better, but just incase it isn't just your arm, it might pay you to get your heart checked! Cardiac conditions often present differently in women, to what the presentation is in men! Just saying! xoxoxo

Sounds the perfect technique, not so sure about leaving Mr. P to do his own, DH wouldn't know where to start, no forward thoughts of what he might need. xx

Mr P is learning.......slowly! X

I refuse to pack for dh, whenever we are going away, I figure that he is an adult; and knows what he wears, so it is upto him to pack what he needs! That way, if he forgets anything, he can't blame me!

Hello all, I have been absent for a few days, sort of hibernating due some severe pain, which has now begun to ease off now, so it is much easier to concentrating on what I am doing. I haven't caught up yet, so don't yet know what you lot have been up to, but will begin to know soon.

I hope all of those in the hurricane affected regions of USA are safe. I am now going to do some catch up! xoxoxo

Well I have caught up again, I prbably won't be on tonight, because I have actually been ping through the night! I have been having a couple of drinks of Mead, then a bit lat, just to be certain, I follow up with warm milk, honey & vanilla - then I sleep most of the night! Catch you later! xoxoxo

The more you crochet the more you will enjoy it. I definitely prefer knitting, but no longer dislike crochet. I just cannot remember where to make the first stitch of a row.
The bears sound like so much fun. It was a wise choice to let them at the shop. Glad the manager has Friday's off.

We do not have a schedule a time for a blood test. Just show up at the lab and they take you in turn. Never have to wait more than 10 minutes.
I hope I am going to like these dryer balls. I have several of them. Others have said they use up to 6 of them at a time. I cannot quite picture the plastic ones. Maybe Mr. Google will show me.

It's the same here, just go to the IMVS, and then wait our turn. If I am not feeling good, I will ring them to see how long the wait would be for me, otherwise, just have a chat with people I think haven't met before, until they tell me that I looked after them, when they were admitted to hospital for some kind of treatment! 😲🙃

I had a very noisy argument with the shop manager one time who decided, after 10 years of my going to his shop, that he would treat me like an idiot and tell me that it was normal for an oil light symbol to be on while driving.
Do you have synthetic oil in the Equinox? I find oil doesn't last as long in the hot weather. My car makes noises too when it wants an oil change.

I was treated like an idiot a few years ago, by a mechanic, who didn't believe women knew anything about cars, so after the third time of taking the car in, to be fixed for exactly the same thing, in the same number of days, I told my husband (of the time) who was a non-driver, and knew nothing about the car; what to tell him, and it was fixed immediately! My husband then went in and informed them that he knew nothingnabout cars, and I should have been a mechanic at their shop, because I knew more than them! They were much more careful of how they treated me, especially after I added my tirade to the mix! The men are much more likely to listen to the women who take their cars in for work (here, anyway), because there are quite a few female mechanics now!

I am glad to read you are doing well taking that course. I was concerned that you were so apprehensive before you went. Hoping you take what you learn and apply it when you are home. Perhaps take care of Chris before worrying about others?

Now that is a wonderful idea, Chris .... when you get back home, have some well deserved 'me' time; tell everyone else that it is time for them to go back home! They can visit, perhaps stay overnight ..... but no longer, because you also need your care and rest time!!! xoxoxo
