Morning, afternoon and evening, all,
Came home yesterday and the neighbor saw me across the fence--she said if I had some more of the canna lilies, she would buy a dozen off me, so I'll get those ready for her this morning - her $20 puts me right at $90, and my goal is $100 for each sale, so I got close. While I'm getting hers ready to go, I'm going to get more gladiolus put together and ready for next week--hers will take care of all the canna lilies, I think.
Julie[/b] - Hope your major and essential work-related pieces go well. You sound a little stressed.
Things to do - I want to finish quilting some of the pieces for my niece's quilt before I go digging around in the yard. Just three more large pieces for the frame of the quilt, and it will be done, and using sashing to add those onto the whole and binding after that. Nearly done, but assume it will be hard to do much of this while I have family here.

Julie- I feel you! I am temporarily over one hump at work and it feels really good. The end is hard to see but we are here to help you breath deeply occasionally. HUGS! Wow, on the text. Seriously, I don't know about people some days!
I woke up thinking again about clearing out a bunch of "things" I don't enjoy anymore. It is weighing heavy on my heart for some reason today. It is so strange that I was so excited to buy these things in my 30s and 40s, yet as I approach 60, it is weighing me down. I don't want sterile, but there is just so much taking up space that someone will need to deal with at some point. Maybe it is the one year mark of my MIL's passing that has it weighing down so much. She had thinned out a lot of her things in the past few years, yet there was still so much to go through and that got given away. I don't know, just thinking on paper.

Hi there. Feeling rather fragile today as I had an upset tum for a few days and it erupted mid afternoon yesterday. I’ll omit the gory details, but suffice it to say I felt like a wet rag this morning.
Slowly returning the land of the living.

Allie - I think of cooking as transformation. When I was on my own i would fry a steak, or microwave fish, but that was not cooking in my book. Luckily, I could buy excellent healthy food to 'assemble' which was beautifully prepared by the supermarket gurus, (at a price), so I was eating healthily and well, but I wasn't transforming food to a different state, like a stew.
It is hard to get motivated when you haven't got anyone to share with.

Thanks- yes we will be doing a video option for people to watch. It is Memorial Day weekend so many will be traveling- it may help some be able to come and will be the reason some can't make it.
I haven't heard how the conversation went yet. I will call mom later this afternoon to see.
Masks are still required here, especially inside. Her wanting to bring her dogs onto the property again was just the last straw for mom. She almost lost her dog and had to pay $3000 in vet bills and sister knows her dogs are never to be on the property again but told her son that is what she wanted to do.
It really is hard and the worst time to get the virus but they really didn't have the money to come out anyways. I will just be there to listen to both sides, like I always do. It will work out for the best in the long run.
Both sisters tend to be pretty selfish but now is NOT the time to be that way.

At church council I was the only one masked. Our pianist/music leader told me that she personally knew that every person present at the council meeting had been fully vaccinated. I was happy to remove my mask. It will be different at line dancing Tuesday. I personally know that 3 of the gals have not and will not be vaccinated, so I will be one of the only two that keep our masks on. [sigh]Julie it is the same here, must follow up every test to make sure received. Frequently staff says “It’s not in the computer” because labs, hospitals, providers all have different systems that are not exchanging data well. Sometimes one office has to fax hard copy to another, who then scans it in. Then the MA, PA or MD really has to LOOK at the results. Pfaugh.Heather, I had to google “J’ai la peche”, Brava!. Moi, j’ai la patate Allie ((hugs)) so sorry for your loss and the grim reminder that this pandemic isn’t over yet. Hope the consult leads to a sleep test and some answers soon.Kylia “…Plants are in the ground. Gutters and roof top cleaned out/off. Went to Costco….” wish I were as “unproductive” as you!
I really wanted red wine today but it was sunny and warm so I opted for real beer and ended up going way over on calories with pizza, salty and sweet snacks. Had I had the 2 glasses of red wine, chicken rigatoni and salad that I’d planned it would have been much better. Ah well.

since cafés are opening again for 1st time in about 6 months tomorrow I'd hypothetically like to spend from 6am to 9pm in my favorite café(s)...
any tricks for getting working when energy is the socks (in your socks is a French expression, meaning very low: energy/motivation, etc.)

Pip: Thanks to you and Kirby for working hard to support MS research. Since DH is an MS sufferer we think of you and that ride as very important, for raising awareness as well as raising money for research. Let me know where to send our check to support your efforts to raise money for research. Katla
(PS: Pip and Kirby have been contributing to this cause by riding their bikes in the MS Ride for many years. We consider both of them as heroes. Contributions go toward MS research.)
