  • Kylia: You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers Machka: That was a very informative article regarding bathrooms. Thank you for the link :) Rebecca: Love the pics she is adorable! Carey-Northern Alberta
  • I love all the comments regarding TP brings back some memories! Items that have been in use here is the "sears and robuck catalogue", newspaper, mandarin orange wrappers, tissue paper from gifts. Yes I am speaking from experience :smile: Of course it is much softer when you rub it against itself. In those days we hadn't…
  • Michele-Wishing the best for you and Vince! <3 Stay well friends, Carey-Northern Alberta
  • Luci: Unlike you I didn't have any French until high school which was in excess of 40 years ago. I'm certainly proving the old saw true that "if you don't use it you lose it" Apparently you still have it! :smile: I came across this poem thought I'd share -it seems very appropriate: “And the people stayed home. And read…
  • Machka: Thank you for the activity links :) The information regarding toilet paper rolls made me realize I had better get started on bedding plants. I'm not sure how long before planting that you should start seeds. I haven't been saving tp rolls for very long so I don't have very many. I found an article that mentioned…
  • Bonjour! (Hello) I have decided to learn French to keep myself busy while in self-isolation. According to duolingo I have learned 33 words. :smile: For those ladies who are having issues with foggy glasses, in Alberta you can buy eyeglass cleaner that has an anti-fogging agent added to it( very necessary in our cooler…
  • Good Morning Ladies, Today is my first day back on line for a couple of years. I'm taking the opportunity with the social distancing directives to use some of the time I now have available to reconnect with people I have met electronically. I managed to find this message board again and recognize a number of you. So good…
  • Good morning :) Managed to get a few minutes on the computer this morning - Heather I had to let you know that they have a new model of the instant pot out that now does everything but sing to you. 9 functions instead of 7 so you might find that the 7 will shortly go down in price. Here's a link to the new list of…
  • Sarah - Glad I'm not alone in the eating out challenge. I'm going to try a new strategy of cooking tomorrow's meals after I eat tonight's and see if that helps. Karen in Virginia - Glad you enjoyed the quote :) Michele: Sorry about Jess but I'm so glad you can be there to help. DJ- I'm so sorry for your loss. Thinking of…
  • Good morning ladies, I've been out of town a lot during the month of May and I expect that to continue while I get my acreage setup to move to. Wanted to pop in and share my results for May. Loss of 4 lbs and 11 inches - it's only taken 2.5 years but I'm finally on the downward trend. Here's hoping it stays that way! Love…
  • Michele: Thanks for your tips on fundraisers. It's a great strategy that I'll keep in mind. Injured my ankle - in bed of all places! According to physio it is a cumulative injury probably caused from doing my walking in place without supportive shoes while watching the Stanley cup play-offs. Apparently we need additonal…
  • Sharon: Glad you only had a dusting. I spent an hour shovelling snow today, but then the sun came out and melted all the ice on the sidewalks. Michele: I'll trade you... I could handle 77 degrees and a pool :) Becca: Love the pic of you and your sis :) Marcelyn: I'd need genealogy software to keep track of 107…
  • Marcelyn: Congrats on your new grandbabies, Nelly and Killian. They are adorable. Kelly: Boy time flies - Joaquin looks so bright-eyed and busy tailed :) I can't believe he is a month old already! Thanks for the owl meme...just how I feel DJ: I love charities that pass things on free of charge. Most charities here now put…
  • All hunkered down and watching the snow fall. It has been snowing since Thursday night so I haven't been able to go to my parents for the Easter weekend. Parents called and they have about 3 feet of snow and are unable to get out of the yard, in fact even snow plows are in the ditch. Fortunately their power came back on at…
  • Sarah: Our bodies change as we get older, hormones I think play a big part. Even though it is slow, your weight is moving the right direction. :) Please don't make the scale the only way that you measure your success. If you haven't taken your measurements then do so because a lot of times even though the scale isn't…
  • Heather: Edible diamonds...who knew :). Thanks for the tip! Carol: So sorry about your son's friend Charleen: Spectacular!!! Sarah: It's always difficult to move on. Your new project sounds very interesting. Please keep us up to date on how it unfolds. Kelly: Your ability to flip things over is fantastic...thank you for…
  • I think I caught up to all of you haven't been spending much time on line as I'm planning my parents 60th wedding anniversary which is coming really soon! Trying to figure out a theme for the cake - I'm thinking blue, white and silver...diamond is a hard colour to replicate :) Now what to have put on it...decisions -…
  • Janetr: Congrats on the new arrival! They all look so happy :) DJ: Staying within your calorie limit counts. Kate Uk: I can relate to the gall bladder issues - pain killers didn't seem to help me, I got more relief from anti-spasmodics. Oh my issues were set off by citrus not fat. Cheri: So happy for you. Happy shopping!…
  • Happy March! Barbi: Thank you for setting up the new thread. So glad that hubby is doing better Sharon: You'll have to let us know if your daughter is the successful sculptor on the McCann's "Darling" sculpture. I hadn't heard that this was being commissioned. Sorry to hear about your BIL - hope things improve for him soon…
  • B) Waves to all...
  • I hadn't realized that there were so many Leslie Sansone admirers out there. I think I'm in good company :) Marni: I like the thought of turning off the music and using my own. The first tune that comes to mind is "I will walk 500 miles" by The Proclaimers :) Kelly: Love the pic of your daughter she is gorgeous! Here's the…
  • Bought a Leslie Sansone walking CD and tried the first 10 minute walk...supposedly just a gentle warm-up. Right... some of those moves are really tough and seem to be a lot more difficult than just walking around the block. Michele, I'm in awe maybe one day I'll be able to do as many as you. :) DJ: Happy to hear that the…
  • Re: Sorry to hear about the layoffs and workload :( we'll be here when you have an opportunity. Congrats on the 208!!!! DJ: Maybe the itchy eyes are related to dry eye - it is one of the symptoms... have you tried moisturizing eye drops/artificial tears? Lanette: The least expensive place to buy topical Voltaren in Canada…
  • Mary: Thanks! I've read a lot on your Keto thread - great info that you have on there Sue: Glad you enjoyed the quote Karen in Virginia: So glad that Olivia is improving so nicely. It's so great to see Mom holding her <3 Tere: Here's to being a fit sexy grandma! Lanette: I'd like that low carb muffin recipe (Later) Thanks…
