Good morning , yes Sandi we kept the lot the trailer is on, Oh Sun, I have sun. No more sitting in the shade. BUT I have shade if I want it. The only draw back to the lot is , it sits on a main road, but that is not an issue for me, some people would hate it.
AND yes, the idea of the trailer is so we can go places, like Nova Scotia. We will get new tires for the trailer, after what my daughter went through with her RV we learned a valuable lesson.
Even though tires look good, they can be old and disintegrating on the inside.
We need a new awning. We Know a guy that comes to you for that. Yes I will do inside pictures.
Today, no matter how hot it is I have to get most of the stuff done in the cabin, I been dragging my feet.

Kathy, Sandi saw the trailer on FB so I will post here for you.

I said Goodbye , Sweet Cabin



Hello Trailer Life

Good Morning All,

Loved seeing your new home Mary! Next you will have to post INSIDE views! I know you mentioned you are staying in the park...guess you rented a spot for the season? What an adventure lies ahead of you....Do you & Jim plan to travel around, once this Covid mess is behind us? I'll bet it was campfire weather for you last night...

Hi Kathy, Did you get some deck time yesterday? Being a non reader of sorts, I surprised myself yesterday...got through 2 magazines & then re-read Joan Minnery's Walking My Way Back to me...so now I am ready for a busy work week after a day of relaxing...the weather continues to be PERFECT for my drive this am... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good Morning Ladies! Wow, Mary highway 401 will be your new address before you know it! That's awesome you found a lodging so quick...Harv will certainly miss you both with ALL the work you do...Where do you move the trailer to? Or do you rent the land it is on? Looking forward to seeing the photos...

Kathy, what a HOOT about the orioles...hope you have success...it is amazing how much enjoyment bird watching gives...this year suet is in HIGH demand at our house...rain will be keeping us wet but a PERFECT time if you have anything planted to root...gave mine their 1st feeding of plant food & everything looks healthy & perky...somewhat like us when we eat well! emoticon Good luck with your oranges...add that sweetener for extra umphhh!

Waiting to vaccuum & wash out the garage today...but forgot Rick is sleeping so I guess a little deck read after I get my steps in.... emoticon emoticon

I didn't get here today, we got up and I did my usual chores then Jim went to the cabin for a few things, he came back and we took all the storm windows off and put the screen on, they all had to be washed and we cleaned all the windows, then we went to the camp, to analyze what I needed to do there.

We ended up looking at a nice trailer up the road from us, the guy that owns it isn't coming back this season , doesn't want to move it, so we bought it for a good price, I like the lay out not a big one but enough room for us, the stove and oven in the trailer looks like it has never been used, the frig also is very nice.

So, I am one step closer to going on a trip to Nova Scotia.
Pictures tomorrow after Jim cuts the grass, no one has cut it yet this year. I want this virus thing over with.

Sorry about the grass / dandelion issue Sandi. Sucks when things don't go according to plan....

Well, ladies you have both really impressed us with your oranges for the Orioles, so we bought 4 yesterday to try out.......

Meaganne told Mike last night that the oranges are "off limits" because they're for attracting Orioles to our yard. Sounds easy , right?

About 5 minutes later he came back upstairs to ask me just "Why are the birds going to eat OREO COOKIES??" We had to explain it to him 4 times before he got it, and YES he did have his hearing aids in and turned on...

Good Morning! It's foggy & muggy out at 6:30 am. Seeing a walker as I post this...did yard work yesterday that zonked me out...I was fed up with dlion situation & tried my own brew from FB...not only killed the weeds but left little patches of dead grass...think ROUNDUP.... emoticon I was so upset...now fixing the patches...today will fertilize my plants....

I knew Kathy you would be on top of the tick issue when it comes to those precious pooches of
yours! Masks are a pain I know...I've been supplied with the disposables from VON...& speaking of which...latest as of yesterday, they are gathering data of the interest in ZOOM classes...I'm not thrilled & sure hope it isn't permanent...but such are the times...had me disheartened & I didn't even go on family zoom after all the details...

Today I will read all my papers & forget about the week at least until Monday... emoticon

Have a wonderful day ladies! Mary, I love the creativity in that paint job! emoticon

Yup, I definitely think that paint job would either keep me awake or give me nightmares HAHAHA They'll probably love it just because they got to help design and paint it.
Enjoy your programs!

Mary - The photos of the kids are lovely! That's quite the paint job! Is it ofr one of their bedrooms? I think I'd find it hard to sleep with all that colour and patterns.... Love the pics of your Oriole feeders too!

Sandi - Sounds like you were your usual "crafty" self with Erin's gifts. Some people are just so talented that way.... no names mentioned YOU and MARY!!!

Meaganne says that she wishes she'd spent more time looking around the site before she ordered her masks - she says they have beautiful Butterfly ones that she didn't see. Hers are all flowers.

Today was her first day wearing a mask, and she found that she REALLY got overheated, even more than she usually gets. She went through two 24 oz bottles of ice water while we were out today.

We use a tick preventative with the dogs throughout the entire danger season, usually but this year there's an issue with getting the requisite blood work done. The vets are back to regular hours next week, but still want to take the animals into the office without the humans, and that simply does NOT happen with any of my guys. They don't ever take any of mine into the back without one of us either.

Good Morning Gals!!!! Mary, those are GORGEOUS pictures of Vada's family in NS...wow, what a scenic property...I'm sure you miss them though especially after the latest addition! & look at you with your oriole success....Good suggestion about adding more oranges to my hooks but I need to save some for me to eat!!!! emoticon

Wow Kathy, those masks are BEAUTIFUL...the ones MEAGGS posted on FB...almost too pretty to use...I dread the thought of wearing them now that it is warmer for us...I think of my hot breath & my glasses fog before I get them on! emoticon

All is good with the gift card issue...it was just an innept cashier that didn't get it...Briwood Market handled the balance emoticon Erin got & opened the parcel...she was tickled with the way I wrapped & described each item & only commented that she wants to stay 39 forever...so I know her thoughts about turning 40....

Yard work day...had a fight with our lawn service & got an extra weed spray so it is tall & ready to cut...it is TICK season...so socks over jeans today before I switch to more seasonal shorts when I get done...LYME disease is nothing to fool with...Watch the pooches for ticks! emoticon emoticon

No, Kathy that place was way too big for them. Vada said it took at least 15 min just to get to the main hwy. this new place they bought has walking trails and just lovely property.
They are young and Justin is very handy so in the future their new place will have an addition, he added a deck as soon as it warmed up this spring.
They love it I wish videos could still be shared on here.

Here is one picture of the deck



Jaxon out back of their property



Walking on the trail, if you look close you will see the cat with them, she is just like a dog, goes for walks with them



Here is one of the kids room, they helped do it all, I have videos of them working.



This is how it all starts



AND then we have Vyla & the cat

Just when you think you will sleep long and hard it doesn't happen.
I was up before the chickens. I waited until 600 to go let them out in their pen.

Darn male we had caged up, I guess he was too sore and hurting to do any spraying , he has been wondering around here for days now and I saw him this morning back up and spray so he is intact. I wish my cat lady could take him but she has had some problems , poor dear, so all her cat stuff is on hold.
I don't know what to do , guess when Jim gets here, we will try to get him caged again, I can't have him chasing my fixed females. Saw him smelling the Mama cat, the one who is still nursing her kitten.


Lovely looking day here. Harv has the garden ready, maybe I will plant the stuff he has bought for it. Don't know yet.

Or go finish packing. Jim hooked all the water stuff up yesterday, so it is all done for the new owners. He will be showing them everything about it. All the solar stuff too. I just want to be all done with it , I have way too much stuff that I have no idea what to do with

Glad that Erin got her gift!! That's too bad about the gift card not working out the way you wanted,Sandi, but at least you finally got to spend some of it!!

Meaganne's masks arrived today. They are beautifully made - all fully embroidered, and each has a liner with a built in "pocket" so that you can add a filter. They were well worth the inital price and the wait as well.

Mary - Those are really nice pics of Vada and the family! Did they buy the place you showed us before, with all the great views of the ocean? How cool that they are right on a lake!

I finally got to spend some time outside on the deck today, soaking up the sunshine and heat, but then have been cold ever since. I just can't win! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Ladies! A beautiful day in the neighbourhood! EVERYONE get outside to enjoy!

Mary, are your grgkids living there for good? I thought their move was temporary....

Kathy, Erin let us know her parcel arrived yesterday...PUROLATOR ROCKS! She let me know she is disinfecting it before opening... emoticon but at least it arrived! Rick got a rebate visa card for some tires he bought...& attempted to use the card today when grocery shopping...what a hassle! But FINALLY after 2 stores he was able to use it some! We had planned to lessen our grocery bill...that was the only drawback...

Everyone have a nice day! emoticon

Hope Erin's gift arrives in a timely fashion Sandi! Meaganne paid for a guaranteed delivery with tracking for some masks that were supposed to be here by the 10th of May - so far they stilll appear to be at the sorting center in Alberta.....

Another quiet day here - the bright spot was a phone call from Brittany thankin me for her beautiful flowers - She is 22 today!!! Where did the time go - she was only 5 when we first met her!!! She just got her final marks, and apparently has finished her course on the Dean's Honour Roll - with all A+s, one A-, and one B+. I am so PROUD of her, she's really, really worked hard to get to this point!

Hi Ladies! Oh Mary, the joys of moving...but what an adventure you have ahead of you? Any plans for the future home yet? Please don't say you are Nova Scotia bound....we would miss you at our get togethers...if we ever get to again... emoticon

Kathy, you know things are sad when all Rick wants for his bday in June is a takeout order of Legends wings!!!! emoticon We sent out Eri'ns parcel yesterday...pricey but are more confident it won't get lost!!! emoticon Sent out by purolator Express....

So today in the sun, will try my homemade dlion killer on the ones that our trusty lawn company didn't remove due to their RAINY spray...DON'T GET ME STARTED on the topic!!! emoticon Also will be replacing those oranges now that I know it works....

Rick went back on nights this week...1st in a few months...so have to get used to my QUIETER mornings...not much else planned just yard puttering!!!! emoticon

Good morning you two, I will try to get enough done today to make it look like I actually did something.

I have very high shelves in the Livingroom and it is a wonder they never fell down with the amount of dust on them LOL , I had to wash everything I took down. BTW most of it is Jim's saves not mine.

Moving is such a big job. I sure don't envy you for having to do it. Will you stay at Harv's, or look for somewhere of your own?

We picked up Swiss Chalet tonight because it was all I could smell while I was waiting for Meaganne at the super store.....

Mine was about a 50 year old chicken that had spent it's entire life running and lifting weights..... tough, dry old bird...AND it's been repeating on me ever since , even though I only ate 3 or 4 pieces. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Mary - I know how much you have enjoyed the cabin, but I think it must also be a relief to have it sold so that now you can look to the future in a more positive place without having to deal with the landowner.

Sandi - What a cool, simple feeder! I LOVE the Orioles, but whenever we've tried to attract them it hasn't worked. Will have to pick up a couple of oranges when we shop next and try your idea!

The last of the Robins in the nest on the light beside our back door has now left, so we can go out the patio doors without being harassed by the parents.... Three of the four babies survived their first flight, so hopefully will make it all the way to adulthood.

Hi Ladies! Mary & Jo...So sorry about your brother....this is such a rough time to hear sad health news about relatives when we are limited in social responses...Glad you are walking Mary...even in the rain moving is SO good for you....

Kathy, thanks for sharing your roof experience...so weird...after the company came out, we got a quote for the repair...of 200 so we went ahead...they came back 2 hrs. later & said the job was so small they could complete it...did an excellent job & cleanup...took less than 1 hour...definitely will be hiring them when complete replacement is needed...maybe that's why they were so quick...highly recommended in our area...Elgin Roofing!

Kathy & Mary...with your love of birds...have you noticed an INCREASE in orioles this year? I heard so many through my VON calls I thought I'd make a home made feeder using 1/2 an orange, with marmalade in the center & sticking it on the spike of my posts...the birds LOVE it! So pretty with all the orange on these dark cloudy mornings!

I delivered some sweets...black bean brownies & zuccini brownies along with some trip souvenirs to London yesterday...needed a car ride & no contact delivery was achieved...the only time I've been out is for MOW meal deliveries! Next, getting Erin's birthday package ready to post...

Sure hope y'all have a good day & stay dry...hang in there...that SUN is coming by the end of the week! emoticon emoticon

I sent her a text a little while ago - maybe she'll answer that.

So sorry to hear about your brother! Is he a lot older than you and JO?

Evening ladies! If this post doesn't work then I QUIT!!! I posted 3 times here last night, and every time I hit the post message button, they disappeared and went to the team page..... so I gave up/

Mary - Have you heard from Jo at all? Meaganne says she's really not on face book very often.
Glad that you enjoyed your walk!

Sandi - Hope things work out for you with the roof!!! When we replaced ours 5 years ago ( the whole thing... shingles, sheathing AND insulation) they said there were a bunch of curled shingles in different spots. That roof was less than 10 years old, and were supposed to have been 25 year shingles, just like the ones we used 5 years ago.

We were told that no matter what the manufacturer says, they don't tend to last more than about 10 years, 15 if you are lucky...... We've been here 20 years this July and have done the roof twice.

Heard form Shawn night before last, and they're both still working from home with the company hoping to start staggering staff back around the beginning of June. He says they're both okay , and we had a really nice chat.

Nothing going on here, as usual. Loved the warmer temps today - ist time in days I haven't been freezing all day long!!! Looking forward to the balmy temps forecast for the weekend! Maybe I can finally get some outside time in!!!

Hi Ladies! Today y'all should feel warmer! Temps are supposed to be up from freezing & the rain to keep everything fresh...I agree about that cold spell...This winter I have put on our gas fireplace more than ever...noticed a BAD BAD thing as I was cleaning up yardwork after the lawn cut...a few of the shingles directly above where our fireplace is inside have curled...NO WHERE ELSE...now I admit it does face south where damage could occur but the fireplace cap has been on open...have any of you ever seen such a thing? over the weekend I'll post a photo...anyway having a roofing company come out to advise...we have 25 yr. shingles & the house is around 15-16 years...so not ready to replace the whole thing but maybe a patch of those shingles affected....we'll see!

Kathy, I didn't get here yesterday...VON business all day, between food deliveries, afternoon phone calls & then pay statement issues...payroll is confused with this CO-VID...they are used to folks volunteering for the MOW deliveries & I've had to continuously check my mileage because they keep missing it! Most of my income comes from that...during rural areas...Regarding the calls, the expectation is covering my 5 classes a week, 1 hr. per class so I make calls 1 hour every afternoon attempting to get 8 calls per hour...but I have some chatterbugs...& you know how I can talk! emoticon emoticon Anyway, I have 100's at my disposal that I can draw from & many want follow up calls weekly & bi-weekly so that is why it keeps going...can't believe I've been doing this for 6 weeks now out of the 9 we've been quarantined....,

Have a great day everyone! emoticon

Mary - You're probably right about the lakes not warming up . It sure has been a strange winter and spring this year.

At least it was sunny today and a little warmer too!!! We had to go to WalMart at Argyle this afternoon to get Robaxin for Brinx, and I was able to have my window rolled down a bit without freezing to death while I was waiting for Meaganne!!! The sun was nice and warm, and with the windows mostly up. I was warm too!

Kathy, it an awful feeling when we can't get warm. The chill has been so nasty.

Here even if I go out in the bright sun shine it is cold, the air coming off the lake is freezing.
I bet those ole lakes won't get warn this summer.

Mary - Love mine too, but even with it on high, and an extra blanket on the bed I couldn't get any warmer... I've been sleeping with the sheet and comforter wrapped up over my ears and my face tucked in as well - still cold, and thinking I was warmer in the coldest days of this last winter. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sandi - How many people are you calling, and how often ?

Mary - I'm fed up with it all too, but would rather things go very solowly so we don't end up with a potentially worse, second wave of the whole mess.

My biggest issues are that we don't feel like you can just run out whenever - like if we forget something when we''re shopping ..., and I really, really miss seeing Emily and getting hugs from her.

Jennifer and Emily stopped this afternoon with the Mother's Day gifts they had both made for me, but standing in the shade of the carport was almost as cold for them as was for me to have the door open so that we could visit. They didn't stay long, but was great to at least see them both.

I went back to be after they left and spent almost 4 hours trying to get warm - haven't been warm for about 3 days now.

Sandi, really at this point I don't give a darn about the virus, I just want to get on with life.
I want to go get my little cabin ready to sell, the town government is warning against cottages coming but come on, these people own property here, they pay taxes , they should come check their places. Stupid , Ford, is a do what I say guy, not do as I do guy.
He is not looking at the whole picture on any of this. Oh well, like I said, I don't give a care anymore.

Going to town to get cat food, then Jim will pick me up at the mechanics, getting a new power window thing installed. We just leave it over night , so he can get on it in the morning.

Here comes the sun ladies! Today we will get that lawn cut emoticon Just has to dry first....Kathy, I know how dismal this cold spell has been...I've never walked so many inside loops instead of outdoors...funny thing is my treadmill puts pressure on my knees & lower back...& that is without the incline so I must walk different around the living room! emoticon & I mentioned on my team chat about my calls yesterday afternoon...Deliveries were fine in the am. but I got only 2 calls mastered instead of the expected quota of 8 so we will see the response I get from the boss! emoticon One call was quite a chatterer & she held the whole conversation for 45 minutes & then I was able to get 1 more in for 10 before recording my results...It was nice for them to feel comfortable but I'm hoping to get more completed this afternoon...
Mary, how are you doing? Enjoy today before the rain hits tomorrow...Are they worried about Goderich being hit by tourists this weekend? Do you have any trails opening up near you yet...I guess it is all provincial park oriented...Feeling SCARED for the Pinery & the Bend area....Hi Jo! I emoticon too! emoticon emoticon

Another dull, windy, cold day here. I'm really sick of the overcast skies and cold temps!!! I'd really, really REALLY like it to warm up enough to be able to sit out on the deck - even if it's only for a couple of minutes!!!

Have almost finished the re- reading of the big stack of books..... need to get some new books to enjoy reading!

How did your meal delivery and phone call day go Sandi!

Mary - Naps are a GOOD THING! emoticon

Jo - Hope you are okay and that you know how much you are missed!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Mary - That looks like a really nice chair Will yuu refinish it with stain, or paint it?

I don't watch Netflix or either of the shows that you mentioned Sandi. I actually don't watch much TV at all - Meaganne and Mike are the TV- aholics!

Hope you had a nice chat with Erin!

Heard from both Jennifer and Rob today. Meaganne made a lovely dinner, but as usual my insides were all over the place so I didn't have much. She gave me a beautiful "stained glass" piece from one of her adult colouring books and a gorgeous little ornament as well.

Nothing is up with me Sandi.

I'm not a fan of either of the shows you mentioned, far to many commercials , I guess I could record them. I hate the way all those shows come back from commercials and repeat stuff.
I been watching all the series I like that have just come back to Netflix

Look what we picked up from the curb yesterday not a mark on it.

Hi Ladies! I know what you all mean about window watching outside in our cold...1 more week of this...our grass has been the thickest ever since I'm waiting on a weed treatment & the weather isn't co-operating with my schedule... emoticon Who knows , soon we'll be complaining of the heat waves we'll get...

I've been trying to watch many HGTV shows & enjoying them...a couple of new ones I'm checking out are Scott MacGivvray's Vacation Cottage Rentals & Backyard Builds.

Kathy, are you checking out The Voice? So weird to see them competing from their homes....I also watch American Idol & the progression of Katy Perry.... emoticon emoticon

I'll bet you & Meaggs are checking out the cooking shows & new recipes....

What's up for mama's day with you Mary? I got an invite to zoom chat with my daughter as well as an Indigo gift card sent to me...will see what she is up to later....

Hi Jo! So sweet of you to help the gkids make a special card for their mom! emoticon

Enjoy our special day gals! emoticon emoticon

Watched the big maple next door blowing all over the place in the wind today - so heavy at times it sounded like a train roaring through the yard!

Lots of reading again today, also playing in a word puzzle tournament on my phone - runs every Friday evening through Sunday night. Also Mike's laundry time....

Mary - Where;s Jo? She hasn't been here in ages! Is she okay? I worry about her.

Sandi - Good that your plan is working, and pounds are melting away!

Staying busy
I did a nothing day today.
I started to watch season 2 of a series I watched last year and it finally returned
so I watched all 10 episodes. Lazy, my butt , is some sore. Hahaha

Harv has the garden all ready for planting but it is too darn cold out there for me. Come on warm weather.

Still never did pictures of the pond for you Sandi, it has been too cold and windy for them to work anymore.

Mary - What a bunch of beautiful kidddoes! How old is Avery now? That's a really cute pic of Vivica, Jaxon and wee Vyla all cuddled up!

Sandi - Can't say we've ever run into issues like you mentioned at Costco - We do much of our shopping there on a regular basis.

Stayed home today, mostly reading huddled under blankets trying to stay warm. Watched the big maple next door swaying wildly in the wind. Meaganne was on the deck for a couple of minutes trying to remind Brinx that he needed to come inside ( he gets a little lost sometimes these days...) and said it was really BRRRR out there!

Sandi, we are lucky up here, with the people not coming back to their week end homes our stores are not bad, but I find we are low on a lot of things.

Hi Ladies! Kathy, you & Meaggs stay INSIDE today...even colder out...it's funny after hearing your store saga...we were just talking about the line ups to shop...I have been sheltered by my hubby always doing the grocery shop...we NEVER go to Cosco after a regular shopping experience in the store, the high bills & the bruised ankles from carts pushed into me as I tried to navigate around...I can't IMAGINE the covid 19 experience. My hubby only shops at store opening when he goes out usually during senior hour & says when he had to do an afternoon trip to the LCBO for our anniversary wine, he will NEVER do that again...says supplies of coolers were rough since he went on a Tues. after a Mon. being closed...so priorities I guess...don't drink enough to warrant any trips there...He is happy though that the beer store has been accepting empties back!

I guess I will be thrilled when the goodwill donation centers re-open! emoticon

Working inside today, all out of my oatmeal topping so have to make a batch...yes back to HOT cereal during our polar vortex! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good evening

Sorry Kathy, I just don't understand why you would have to go to so many stores?
Just a totally horrible day. I feel so bad for Meaganne, poor girl

I'm not in a good mood, life sucks today, yesterday

We did groceries again today also - ended up being a major shop..... partly because I needed meat and produce.

Global pet foods - no line outside !
No Frills - no line outside! ( big one for check out )
Butcher - no line outside!
Farm Boy - no line outside!
Metro - no line outside!

That's when our luck ran out!

Costco..... Meaganne was in the line outside for almost an hour, in the shade of the building, with a pretty brisk wind, and temperature had started dropping. - of course, she didn't have a jacket with her either.


She got back out to the van after being in check out line for almost another 45 minutes, only to find out that the packer had put heavy stuff on the flat of eggs and broken several of them, and that she had forgotten to grab a bag of potatoes....

So, she went back in the line for about another 10 minutes - 4 staff members who we know all told her that because there was virtually no line any more, she could just take the eggs back and go straight in the store to get another flat, plus the potatoes.

The person who did the exchange insisted on having an employee go get a new flat of eggs for her ( which ended up being TWO people!!) and then told her she would have to go back out in the line in order to get back in the store to get the darn potatoes.......

Of course, by the time they came back with the eggs, the 4 staff who had said she could go right on in, had been switched for other employees. She was still freezing from her original wait in line, and so tired, and so angry when she got back to the van, that she was almost in tears... I felt so sorry for her!

Stuff like that irritates the heck out of me - you've already stood in their lines both in and outside of the store, and then again to get back in... you'd think she could have just gone straight in or the staff who got the eggs could have grabbed the potatoes instead... but that's just my opinion.

Hi Gals! I'm with you & the cold Kathy, can't remember the last time I walked outside...will do a little bit of pea stone leveling ...see some bare spots of landscape fabric under the deck from over the winter...hubby will try to fix the flame on our BBQ...think some animals did some plugging over the winter...grocery top up was done today...puttering around indoors after that not much noteworthy to report!

Stay warm everyone! emoticon

I 've been close to being warm enough to sit out on the deck a couple of times, but now it's just too darn cold again. The guys on the radio this a.m. were referring to it as a "POLAR VORTEX" which totally sound winter coat, woolen mittens, and heavy blankies to me emoticon emoticon emoticon

Brinx has been "off" the last day or so - balance, stumbling more than usual and having trouble settling. He really had trouble getting into the house when we got home from his adjustment this afternoon, but seems a bit better now, more comfortable and is sleeping on my bed. The two twits don't bother him there.

Hi Ladies! Are you adjusting to our cold spell? It is bitter...so wimpy, I've been walking indoors...Mary that pond looks great...I love water features...Have seen online ads for little solar fountains you can put into a bird bath...but so many...I don't know what's real or not...so won't order with my ccard for fear of the almighty scams...

Kathy, you are probably wise to get your plants later since mine are hibernating in the living room sun! emoticon I sure love the blooms though to raise my spirits on a chilly day...

Jo is hibernating.... emoticon but I've seen her respond on my team...probably very busy with kiddy schooling...they say some progress in normal routines is on the horizon...I can't wait...how about you????

Every day, more & more policies regarding my Meals On Wheels Deliveries! Pretty soon I will be wearing FULL PPE gear! emoticon Yesterday my goggles were fogging up over my glasses so much, I thought I had a tripping hazard...

Today is catch up day...hanging laundry to put away...this afternoon more SMART calls...I am holding my own weight wise although BBQ & anniversary meals did play a part in that! emoticon

Jo - Where are you? Are you okay?

Sandi - I have barely even thought about plants / hanging baskets - too early! I don't ever do anything before the 24th of May.... We are hoping to order some soil from Heemans, and if I do then... of course I will also / hopefully be able to order at least a couple of plants at the same time... just to make it worthwhile! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Mary - We had a couple of babies smaller than that at birth - my Lucky was only 6 ounces - normal birth weight for the Collies is anywhere from about 7 - 12 ounces with as small as 6, or as big as 14 ounces not uncommon. How old is this wee one - it still seems really tiny to me!!!

I would love a pond, but the idiot " littles " would probably wreck everything in it, or poor old Brinx would fall in it..... emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had a rough night - couldn't get comfortable OR warm either, so ended up wasting much of the day dozing off and on, when I wasn't reading... whom am I kidding? especially when I WAS reading.

No Sandi it is not deep, it will have a big rock in the middle with water falls. I will share pictures.
He used to have a smaller one right outside the side door, all the birds loved it and we can see it all the time right out the kitchen window BUT no he has to change things.
Can't find the picture.

Hi Gals! wow, what a temp change....I have my geraniums in their hanging pots yesterday they were beaming! today, shivering so I brought them all inside...since they are zonal geraniums, they are NOT frost tolerant....Guess I should have read the labels when I bought them...I was so excited to get plants, it got by me....

Wow Mary, or should I say kitty mama...you remind me of my daughter & her finicky bunny who she puts herself at risk for to get special dandelions??? she also syringe feeds him, when he is anxious...OMG? emoticon Anyway, whatever gives her peace....Must keep you real busy...I too am sick of the cold & solving Co-Vid problems...sure seeing some sad cases...

Wow, a pond is a HUGE undertaking...hope Jim & Harv have a success with it...looks deep!

Hi Jo & Kathy! Stay warm ladies! emoticon

Kathy the kitten is so tiny ( it is 9.2 oz) I use a cotton ball dipped in warm water to stimulate it.
All is working good, yuck except when it decides to go all over me while I am burping it.
Oh the joy.

It is fascinating how they change every 24 hours and oh my they can sure climb.

I'm sick of this cold.

Jim and Harv worked on making a new pond yesterday, Harv didn't want it were he usually has it.

Been there and done that Mary - tons of times, just with puppies....

A warm (barely damp) washcloth or small rag works wonders in getting the "juices" flowing - you don't want to ame the area wet or they chill really quickly and die. I always had the mom, just had to work on tiny, or struggling babies, My heat lamp and heating pads were my best friends back then. Had a few that were wrapped in a washcloth or small towel and travelled around in my bra with a small syringe of formula because they needed to be fed every 1 - 2 hours at first. A WHOLE LOT OF WORK, for sure!!!

Loved the warmth and sunshine today!

Good morning

Oh my we have sun.

What is planned today I have no idea. Baby cat seems fine.

I read up on the care, did you all know that you have to rub them
and stimulate the areas to make them go to the bathroom when they are this young?
It has been so long since I had orphan kittens I forgot all that. Jo and I had them
at her house when I lived with her.
Hahaha they turned into cows,

Sandi that is awesome about your weight
Wish I could say that, I was down 10 put them back on.
I just have no consistency in my life.

Nothing exciting going on here, although Meaganne said we had a real plethora of birds at the freshly filled feeders this afternoon - 3 different woodpeckers, blue jays, cardinals, mourning doves, sparrows, chickadees, nuthatches and several different kinds of finches too. Of course they were all gone when I went to have a look...

Happy May Day y'all! Kathy, you are a HOOT!!!! emoticon Loved the tooth fairy story! Out of the mouths of babes! Yes, today he gets his favourite dinner with his card...& a little bubbly...We broke the cardinal rule of knocking elbows today for an anniversary smooch...what a story that could be to tell!!! emoticon

Nothing else major...tying up weekly work demands...a little yard work...looking at that calendar after a March 17th start I am proud to say I'm still down my 10 pounds... emoticon emoticon ...Hope I can continue as time goes on...so good to be able to do those physical tasks at an easier way...which is my main reason for removing any weight.

This weekend is supposed to be a beauty so y'all get some free vitamin D & enjoy...looking forward to a DRY DECK! emoticon

Mary - The pics of the kidlets are adorable, but the one I really like is the one of you holding Jaxon. You look absolutely beautiful!!!

Brinx DOES get pain medications too - 3 different kinds every day, plus the once a month shot. Most of the time I feel like they do a pretty good job of keeping him comfy, but sometimes he just plain has a bad day.

Sandi - Hope that you got your money issues worked out the way you wanted! 44 years and you're wasting a whole dollar??? WOW You don't want to start raising the expectation levels at this point in time! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Jo - How are you doing? emoticon emoticon emoticon

Emily called to tell me she had just lost tooth # 7 at dinner time this evening. Apparently Mr. Ford says that the Tooth Fairy is an essential worker just like the Easter Bunny and since the Easter Bunny still came she guesses that he isn't lying about the Tooth Fairy like he does about everything else especially to the teachers.......

I gather the adults in her world have conversations that are not always suitable for an 8 year old to hear! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Great photos Mary! My day begins with a payroll issue this am. There is a main discrepancy on what I was told I would be paid & my statement today so I will begin with government waiting & delaying & inquiries...so frustrating! emoticon

Next, I will make a trip out today to get to the dollar store to get a card for my DH & our anniversary tomorrow...After 44 years, I think he deserves a 1.00 card!!! emoticon

Everyone have a good rainy day...I hope we all get rainbows following this! emoticon emoticon
