    @northviewvintage That sounds just like my father. He goes to the mirror and says, The ol'kid is lookin' pretty good today! The ol'kid is in good voice today! Meaning quality of tone. Like it. Mac Davis died 9-29-20 RIP

    Ali's food is out of this world.

    @slimgirljo15 is the beating heart of the forum. @forestfreek is the backbone. I'm just an ol'hound dog gnawing on a bone. I promise no mo country songs on your thread. Ever. I don't want to break the forum ever again with too much country music. All y'all have a good day. So long now.

    🤗 You are such a positive, sweet and kind influence on the forums.. we are lucky to have you.
    Post anything you wish lovely 🙂

    Good morning Middle-agers.. well 2 days of rain here and I gotta say I'm totally enjoying it, it had been so long since we'd had some good rain. I swear my tomatoes, zucchinis and capsicum plants have tripled in size over the weekend.
    I think a snuggle in a warm blanket on the lounge, watch a good movie kind of day.
    I hope you all have a great day 🙂

    @forestfreek so I follow lots of cooking and baking thing on Instagram so I always want to try what I see. One was caramel corn this morning but there's been a trend to tie string around a loaf of bread before it rises so it ends up looking like a pumpkin. Then you shove in a cinnamon stick "stem". I'm kinda happy with how this turned out 84szuj6o1ly4.jpg

    Hey everyone, I am 49 years old. Can I get in on this group?

    Yes of course. I'm in on the 50-ish part. Been "-ish" for 4 years now, so perhaps soon get expelled. 🤣

    That pumpkin bread looks awesome! That is impressive nice work!

    I'm thinking of other patterns to try or maybe doing a cinnamon swirl next. It's easy but looks fancy

    Been working way too much. My first day to peruse the community section in a while. Glad to see that y'all are alive and well.

    My dog, Daisy, got spayed on Friday, so I had a couple of days off from dog walking duty. But today she was full of energy, so we went back to the regular routine. It was cold and windy, but that will be the norm here until spring. Invigorating, as they say!

    Hey everyone, what are you up to today? Nice weather (still) around here, about 18 degrees to come in the afternoon. Are you working from home or working out from home? :smile:

    Oh my god, I love the pumpkin bread! I usually make a cornucopia out of bread dough for Thanksgiving every year. A couple of sourdough pumpkins next to it and tiny pumpkin rolls inside would be amazing.

    Look at these! > https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/276472/pumpkin-shaped-dinner-rolls/

    I'm American and living in England so I normally invite English friends over to create a bit of festivity on what can be a quite sad holiday for me. So this socially distanced Thanksgiving will be quite depressing but I think I'm going to have to make some tiny pumpkin deliveries. :)

    Oh yes you must do something... you can always make a Thanksgiving meal and drop stuff off to friends. That's what we did this year (I'm Canadian and our Thanksgiving is in October)

    Happy Monday!!! If by working you mean doing the school drop off and pick up yup....I'm working. Everyday I scour the house listings to find a place closer to the boy's school but sadly no one seems to want to move.

    I ate too many of my delish chocolate cookies so it's gonna be a double workout day today I think have a good one

    @AliNouveau - how long of a commute is it for him/you? That sucks about struggling to find a place. So funny because just 90mins north of you and everyone is trying to sell their houses right now. Of course I know your market is way different there. Getting so expensive for housing everywhere.
    Good luck on the continued search 💕💕💕

    It's only like 15/20 minutes but it's on the 401 so it can be unpredictable. If I took the city route it would take forever due to construction. I guess I want to move to a very specific area that people don't like to move away from?

    Real estate is insane in this province. In this area you can't even get a crappy old must be renovated bungalow for less than a million and a half. People commute from up where you are driving the prices up. I don't know how young people get on the property ladder these days.....move to Kingston? 😂🤣

    Working...yes...always...I feel like I never really get away from it. I'm a bit more stressed than usual this week because I'm assisting with virtual 101 trainings this week, and we have 200 people signed up for it. I'm actually ok with public speaking...in public. For some reason though this webcam and zoom thing have me all messed up. I think it's because I can't see the reaction of my audience, are they getting the jokes? Do I need to slow down? Are they bored (of course they're bored, it's insurance). Via webinar I get nothing and it's harder for me.

    Anyway, i'll quit being gloomy. Upward and onward!!!
