    Ok, does anyone rewrite their shopping list, by aisle order? I'm such a loon.💖

    I order groceries online, but I do go tab by tab ... fruit/veg, bakery, meat, etc.

    First Happy Easter to all who celebrate!

    Second, my SIL took my MIL to the hospital yesterday. She was feeling bad enough that she didn't argue. She got admitted. After a CT scan with dye, they found a mass on her pancreas. We don't know if it is a group of cytst or cancer yet. They drained a bunch of fluid from her belly this afternoon to hopefully help relieve some of the pain. She hasn't eaten anything of any substance for 4-5 weeks. She was constipated and suffering from a UTI......well, it looks like it is worse. I am not having a good weekend. My SIL says no reason to panic until we get biopsy results tomorrow. My husband is momma's boy. He has a bad heart. I am scared for her and him. I will catch up when I can. Prayers, hugs and warm thoughts needed.

    This would be great!! I'd like to see the redevelopment of a "powder room" or sink near the front door.

    But the whole article linked below is very interesting ...

    "If Lloyd Alter were building a new house right now, he’d be sure to add one unusual feature: a bathroom sink in the front vestibule. “We're going to see a real resurgence of the vestibule, I think,” says Alter, a former architect and design historian who now teaches Sustainable Design at the Ryerson School of Interior Design. “This is a transition zone from the outside to the inside, where you take off your dirty stuff and you wash your hands before you go into the house.”"

    Luci in WNC: Thank you for your good wishes for DS, DDIL and her whole family. DDIL’s Mom has been the heart of the family and this is hard for everyone. :broken_heart:

    Kylia: Prayers for your MIL and the whole family. :star:

    Rebecca: That is the best Easter Basket, ever! :bigsmile:


    I had a wonderful phone chat with my daughter and her family this evening. I am so happy to get the chance to talk to them. Their little town had an Easter Parade with floats and candy, and they all had a grand time. The call left me feeling happy. I especially enjoyed my granddaughter giggling. :heart:

    Karen - I bought the 50s style one as I have a lot of 50s styling in my kitchen. Amazon did not give me the option of blue to go with my Kitchenaid and clock, so I got the black to go with my toaster and scales. I could have got cream to go with my fridge and my bread bin, but I'm probably going to change those one day. I didn't even bother to read the reviews. I've been through so many kettles in the last few years I don't think any of them are perfect, but DS has the same model Dualit and it is still going after a few years of abuse, and the water doesn't taste of plastic, so I guess it's as good as any. ;)
    Says it's arriving on Friday, but recently things have been coming earlier than they say. I'm limping along with my travel kettle. Strange to have to plug the thing together every time. :p
    We haven't been spending any money recently on going out etc, so there's a bit more cash in the joint account. Our pension is still turning up as before. Normally I would look at the cheaper options and resign myself to it not lasting very long. I do hate that plastic taste, so I always read the reviews for that.

    We would now be on the coach for our trip to the fishing village. 52 m winds and 3°C. :# Last time we stopped at Haugesund we went on a sunny boat trip to a waterfall and had lunch at a lovely family farmhouse. Weird to think of it. So many small businesses affected all over the world.

    As I like to say today is Monday fun day!

    I awakened a few times last night and was able to fall right back in to a nice sleep. Most times these types of sleeps happen during the workweek. All is good. I had a productive, restful, lovely weekend.

    For what am I grateful for this morning.
    • I am grateful to be alive.
    • I am grateful to be able to go to work this morning and my commute is a few steps away.
    • I am grateful for the lovely dinner I was able to procure for my Easter dinner. It consisted of roasted corn with fresh tarragon grown in my garden, twice-baked sweet potatoes, and filet mignon.
    • I am grateful to be able to take a nice, hot shower this morning with towels fresh out of the dryer.
    • I am grateful for my life's experiences. Through these experiences I am a stronger person and am able to weather troubling times and events.

    I hope everyone has had, is having, or has a good day.

    Peace to all.

    SuziQ - is this not a holiday Monday? It is in the UK.

    My hair has dye on it. I have changed the bed linen to wash. I don't have a tumbler dryer, but I do have a utility room with one of those old fashioned pulley airers. Brilliant!
