    Grf. Had a long post done, and poofed it as I went scrambling down a pig trail when something I wrote to y'all made me think of the research I'm doing for an article. Oh well, probably not that earthshaking.

    Tracey - LOVE those pictures of the grand.

    Heather - cannot believe Max is old enough to have a girlfriend!

    Barbara AHMOD - Baking is an art, not a science. Not sure why that little canard took off, but I hate that people get intimidated by being told they have to use the exact measurements in the recipe or it won't work. it deters people from trying... Baking is fun, because, unlike so many things, you can eat your mistakes (most of the time!)

    Speaking of which, I need to get the next batch of bread going - half will go for Corey's sandwich buns for the week, and the other half, I'll shape and flash freeze. I'll put them out to thaw Thursday night, and they'll be ready to bake the next morning. The cinnamon rolls sold like crazy, as well, but I will probably make them fresh Friday so everything's as fresh as it can be on Saturday.

    Oh - and for those that were waiting on the sequel to my mystery story, I pulled it down off Vella for the time being, as Amazon is dragging their feet about coming out of beta--in other words, I can see it, but you still can't. It's still on my radar, but until they get the kinks out of Vella and get it live, I won't be able to send a link to you.

    Later, y'all,

    Spring for me! Spring! Spring! Spring! (Hate the occasional heat of summer and the crowds in all the nice places, including gorgeous Hove)
    Love spring flowers. Love sunny days with cool temperatures.

    My early run with DH was wonderful. By the time we started our return at 8.40 the seafront was starting to fill up. Previously, it had just been locals and the swimming clubs.

    Came back for 35 mins rowing , then washed my hair and gave myself a much needed pedicure. First one in 19 months! Blue nail varnish. Then put colourless on my fingernails.
    Feels good. :D

    Max doesn't have a girlfriend. I deliberately wrote girl friend. She is a friend, who is a girl, and loves cricket. My elder son's best friends at junior school were always girls. Max has boy friends as well, but I do think it's great that he has a girl friend too. My best friends at school were sometimes boys, sometimes girls.

    England playing football in the Euros this afternoon. I will be upstairs rowing and watching foreign language films. :D DH will be in his study watching football. Not my bag. :#

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    My age is really showing or maybe it's the fact that I don't get out much! I thought today was Father's Day and bought my hubby a bottle of his favorite whiskey and a card. Texted my son Happy Father's DAy and then found out it is next Sunday. Oh Well! I tried. :D

    Lisa ~ Your baking is wonderful. I bet your house always smells delicious! :)

    Tracey ~ You and Michaela look so much alike...two pretty people. Your grand son is lucky to have a grandpa who makes him wonderful toys. <3

    Debbie ~ Do you peel the apricots before you cook them? The cooked results look yummy. :)

    Ginger ~ You have gone through so much this year. Hugs! <3

    Happy Sunday to All....Carol in GA :)

    Thank you! And yes the smells from all the baking just permeate the house. Luckily my husband loves it, and neither of us eat lots of sweets, so it's not too bad in terms of being destructive to my eating.

    Ugghh. Woke up to my dog being sick on the carpet. I have minor unpleasantness like that but overall life is very good.

    I hope to write more. I joined a writing group; first critique session is Monday. I'm a little nervous about opening their documents to read. Hope I don't mess anything up.

    Ginger it sounds like you have had just one thing after another this year! Best wishes for a calm spell. And good work controlling those binges!

    Flea - thinking of you. Hope you can settle on a safe and effective treatment plan.

    Hope everyone is having a good day today!!
    Been dealing with some issues related to the extensive work I did outside in the garden in April.
    Seems I strained chest and stomach muscles, but am not experiencing any pain, except when I had to have an echo cardiogram, the wand they use to press against one's chest really really hurt.
    Anyway, when anything interferes with my stomach I get palpitations. I am being treated for acid reflux, actually have Barrett's.
    Does anyone here suffer from palpitations in relation to their acid reflux??
    {{HUGS}} to everyone!!!

    Hi friends. I keep swearing I'm going to get here at least every other day, but I don't seem to be able to. I did lose 1.3# this week.

    It's hot and dry here. We're planning to go to an outdoor afternoon concert today...we'll see!

    Remodeling is finally actually occurring. Exterior painting starts tomorrow with the power wash. Next on the agenda is the downstairs bathroom flooring and new bar top. We have carpet and kitchen appliances on order but may change the appliances. I am not really thrilled about my choice of induction range tops so we are having a gas person come out next week because we swear our builder plumbed gas to the kitchen. I'd rather go gas than induction. Does anyone have that? How do you like it?

    We will finalize our choice of tubs and master bath vanities this coming week and get that project rolling.

    Summer courses are almost done; 1 week left for both! Then I am actually FREE until mid August! I will go in once a week though to start working on my fall course. The curriculum was totally new then covid hit and it's all totally on line, so that will change for this fall. Thus the need for revisions.

    All the critters are well. The kitties are fun and I think they even amuse the old cat sometimes! Their claws have not been a problem. The puppy is finally sleeping through the night. Thank God, we were turning into zombies!

    OK, must run and get some chores done if we have any hope of getting to the concert.

    Take care, Meg from OMaha

    Meg ~ Nice to hear from you. Getting all the renovations sounds great and I hope you get the stove you want.

    Kim ~ You ARE an amazing woman. So glad that you were able to fix the sewer problem.
