Good morning everyone, slept great last night, a whole 8 hours and I am awake now. Lately I feel half asleep when I get here. I am now getting 3 more hours a week with my CNA. A couple of months ago I had an interview with my insurance and the case worker decided I needed more hours and it was finally approved and started yesterday. More time for her to cook for me. That I will appreciate. Looks like the cooler days are over here for now, up into the 80's today with the humidity going up again. In mid September we will be getting our flu shots here .We will get a time for each of us to go down to get them so we do not get close with each other. Wonder if we will ever get to socialize again.

SHIRLEY  watching news on the different networks they all have a different view of the news. Disgusting. Even the weather reports are different on the local stations.

AMY  glad to know why JANE did not post. I have no problem getting in here. Sorry she cannot get in. Miss her.

PHYLLIS  like you I would love to have a chef here every day to cook what I like. Yvette is OK but is more used to cooking fish and Portuguese  food that her husband loves. Too much garlic and onions for me.

AMY  all the different patterns for masks, makes me wish I could still sew. If I tried using a machine now most likely I would ger the needle in a finger.

LLOYD  that was a lot of green beans canned.

Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

HOORAY!!  I got in this morning!

[/I just decided to try it one more time and there you all were!  I almost jumped out of my chair, I was so surprised...and happy!

It's been busy around here with canning and freezing and haunting the produce stands.  I've got corn in the freezer and I'm getting more this afternoon.  I've got green beans canned and on the shelf.  I've got pickles, 3 kinds of jam and tomatoes ready for the veggie soup. 

But, BOY!  Have I ever missed all of you!  If AMY hadn't kept me up to date, I've have really been down in the dumps!

I see you've all be busy and it's too much to comment on separately so I just wish you the all the best and keep on with the good life.  I'll be back when I can!  When I haven't seen my kids for a couple days, I text them with "I love you and miss yu!"  I'm saying the same to all of you.....I Love you and miss you!

Good morning.  Quiet day here, so far.  David will pick up groceries later on this morning and that is all that is planned.

Shirley, I don't know anything about Louisburg, KS, so can't help you with the cider mill.  I looked it up on the internet and was surprised to see it is considered part of the KC metropolitan area now.  I've been gone from Ottawa for almost 70 years so everything has changed and I would probably be lost if I went back there now.  We have Sycamore trees in N.C., too, though I don't have any in my yard.  They grow very tall here, reaching heights of 100-125 feet on average.  But, most of our trees get very tall here.  They are beautiful but can be dangerous in our storms.

Take care, All.

Gosh, how strange that some of you could get in the site and other's couldn't

I haven't been able to get in since Monday.  And, I have tried several times each day.  Tried a little while ago, and was happy that the site came up.

And, I see where Jane had problems also.  I know that Michael had said the site would be down, but didn't think it would be a whole week.  However, there must have been a glitch somewhere, as today it worked.

I did go back and see where different ones had been in here during the week. 

Anyway, glad it worked this time. 

I will have to go back and check the sites for the making your own masks. I just ordered a couple from a site that showed up on Facebook.  I could make some if I would just stop being lazy.  I don't like the real loud colors on most of them. But, I did find a site where they had some really pretty pastel colors.  One place I got some ordered they were 3 of them for $12.  So, I had an e-mail where they were shipped.  I still might try making a couple more.  I like the ones that have the pleats.  They don't seem to slip when you are talking. 

However, I do find them to be a big PAIN!.  But, we have to do what we have to do to stay well.

It sounds like everyone is doing ok.  I did read a message from Jackie on Norm's page, where she has just been having trouble with her internet and phone.  At least, she is ok.

Jane, I really envy you with all the canning you have been doing.  Wish I could be that ambitious.  My mother did a lot of canning, but I never got brave enough to do any.  I did used to freeze veggies when I had a bigger freezer.  I am still waiting to fix some string beans, but will wait until my son can pick up a smoke pork neck so I can cook them with that.  I called several stores to see if they carry them, and finally found a store near where my son works that has them. That is what my mother used to use, and I really like the flavor they give to the beans.  Hopefully, I can get my freezer cleaned out so that I can save a few of them for later.

Hope everyone will stay safe.

Good Afternoon,

I had the patio door and a window at the other end of the house open all morning.  The a/c didn't come on until almost noon!  Surely is nice to have things aired out - even if it did make me sneeze.

I also like the pleated cloth masks and have discovered there's plenty of air if I point the pleats down and don't get in my mouth if I pull them far enough under my chin.  I toss them in the laundry after wearing.

Can't talk about any canning/jelly making I do but can tell about dil's 80 jars of jelly (4 kinds) and about that many jars/bags of fruit and veggies "put up". Most everything came from their own garden, fruit trees and berry bushes.

I'm still working on the photo album for #2 son.  Am at the half-way mark and trying to work on it at least a couple of hours every day.

Hoping Everyfriend Everywhere finds something to Enjoy about today.

Sure been a busy day doing nothing..... I did get dishes done (haven't used the dish washer for ages & know that is not smart, but I don't put a lot of stuff (pots & pans) in it & seems crazy to not just go ahead & wash the few dishes I do use. And only other extra I did get done was clean the drain in the sink of the bathroom I use. Been running slow & doesn't take much, long type tweezers & then a couple doses of vinegar & baking soda & it runs like a champ. Had a nice visit with some neighbors from around the corner. I was adjusting a sprinkler ... (haha, don't know how but a little kick usually does the trick) got stuck sprinkling the street & that's a waste of water, it ain't never gonna turn green!  :uglystupid2: Time for bed. I am almost moving in my sleep. Hope everyone has beautiful dreams.. happy to see the missing Friends show up today!   :smitten:  :thumbup:

Good morning everyone..
The delightful humidity is coming back :(  We really enjoyed the cooler temps with no humidity so thankful for that time.

Laundry after we come back from town, then sewing.

Better scoot, town gets really busy on Sat and I want to go in and out in jig time!

Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe please.

Good morning every one. Already 71 after the last few mornings in the upper  50's already warm and humidity climbing again. Guess August wants to live up to it's name here just HOT. Then again the heat waves were in July this year.

JANE  so great  seeing your post this morning. Glad you got in at last. You sure have been busy. My older son has supplied me with tomatoes. Yvette and I have blanched and pel some and I have them in the freezer. Yesterday he brought another bag full. Monday we will Add those to what I have in the freezer and will have almost enough to make spaghetti sauce.

JOY  I used to do a lot of canning in my younger days. Cannot do it anymore.

CALLIE  I like the washable masks. First ones I had were a wear once and thow them away. Waste  of money.

SHIRLEY  i don't do much of anything anymore,I sure am lucky to have Yvette 5 days a week.

LLOYD  hope you found a good movie.

AMY  weather guessers are saying 90 next week again. Don't need or want that.

Have a good day abd stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Mickie thought it was time to get up at 5:20 this morning  I pointed out that it was still dark but she insisted.  So I indulged her.  I've been doing stuff ever since and just as I got to S&F, the boiger went an we had to get breakfast.  I read the paper while I ate mine and then it was time for our first walk of the day.

It's a beautiful morning here! It was only 63º when I got up and it's 70 right now.  Perfect for a walk! However it will be into the low 80s by noon and then reach 90 before it starts down again!

I'm going to make a quick trip to the Mennonite store sometime today to get more corn!  I have 13 2 meal packs in the freezer and I want to double that before I quit and I need one large pack for the veggie soup in the fall!  So I'm figuring about 3 dozen more ears. But I only do them a dozen at a time.  There was a time when I went to a farm and came home with 100 ears at a time.  On those days, my kids would moan and complain because they knew they weren't going anywhere until it was all shucked!  I sure miss my shuckers!  I'd even put up with the complaints to have them all back at the same time!  And not just to shuck the corn! I could use a few hugs!

I guess I better get this day started or nothing will get done.  I wish you all a lovely day!  Make it your own in every way!  And don't forget to share it with your good friends in the Soda Shoppe!

Jane, do you use an angel food pan to cut the corn off? Hold the cob on the top funnel and cut ,the corn goes into the base of the pan......no mess either.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

It is a nice day here on the
Rocky Coast of Maine.   Sunny
and warm.   My AC is still on
to keep the higher temperatures out.   

I got up at 10:30 this morning...
It is so unlike me to sleep late
in the morning.   But that is because
I don't like to go to bed early
any longer.  Crazy mixed up hours! 

Next Tuesday I am having a sleep study
done.     Boy will I be glad when
that is over with...  I don't think
that I have sleep apnea,  but that
is what they are testing me for.   

I will be very surprised if I do .

The crises that we are now in because
of Covid and next Novembers big
election,  is really weighing on my
mind....  In November thru the
end of the year I am hoping that
things will get better,  but silently
dreading that they will not.

I think this is why my sleep schedule
is so messed up ..  Always something.
I should be grateful that I am
in as good shape as I am in...

So here is to being grateful !!! 

Have a good weekend..

Well I spent the day most all day in the hospital with my grand daughter and her
daughter. the great grand daughter stepped on a garden rake that was laying in the yard with the teeth up. one tooth slipped under her sandal and poked  through her foot bottom to top but not through the skin on top. no stitches required, just tetanus shot and antibiotics. she set beside me leaned her head against my side and I talked genital and in a short time i got her to stop crying on the way to hospital. pretty tough for a 7 year old little girl. well that is enough excitement for this old man for one day. so I am going to sign off for the day and bid you all sweet dreams. hope to see you all tomorrow.

I'm all closed up and ready to hit the sack.  We have an overnight guest and he'll occupy the bed with Mickie and me.  Gonna be fun.  Frankie worked extra hours and late ones today so he spent most of the day with us.  I think Mickie likes it when he's here.

LLOYD, what a terrible thing for your little gal.  Thank goodness she had Gramps to soothe her on the way to the hospital!

AMY, what a good idea for cutting off the corn.  I'm going to try it tomorrow.  I might need a stool to stand on to make me that much higher above the counter but I do have one.  2 dozen ears are shucked and waiting in the fridge, so your tip is right on time!

SANDY, nice to see you in the Soda Shoppe.  Hope your test comes out the way you want it to and the next few months will be a bit more relaxing for you.

Now I'm off to Dreamland!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone, hope you all had a good sleep last night and wake and full of energy. I have some energy but dar n back will nt let me do much. At least with my rollater I can still get around on my feet. Better than being in a wheelchair. That I am thankful for.

JANE  Mickie wanted to change the daily routine yesterday. Get out of the rut?  Last year my son brought me some corn and his tool  to get the kernels off the cobs and I froze most of them. Tasted good during the winter. Like y o u I would like having my 3 here at one time with their families. Nothing I desire more than that. Been too many years since that happened.

AMY  I hope BUBBLE is not sick. I know the times I could not get online I was miserable not getting here.

LLOYD  what an ordeal for your little greatgranddaughter. Those rakes should never be left like that. Someone was not thinking to drop it that way.

Looks like I am too early for anyone else to bu up and awake. Time for my second cup of coffee.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone..

Foggy out there this morning. Rain during the night along with the sounds of crashing thunder. Both did not last long, just long enough to scare Babe.

A day of rest here.....hope to sew later on. We had Kyle's sister in for a visit yesterday.

Jane, place your cake pan in your sink and that will give you the height you are looking for without getting on a step stool .Hope that works for you.

Gloria, we are now back to the humid days.I really don't care for them. We did put the a/c back on yesterday and it s on now.

Lloyd, I hope your great granddaughter's foot is better this morning.

Better get ready to meet the day..

Enjoy your day everyone..stay safe..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  We are just waiting for the boinger and breakfast. 

AMY, another timely tip...now why didn't I think of putting it in the sink!  I think I might have when I started setting up but it's nice to know in advance.  I'll try that.  I suppose the funnel in the middle of the pan brings the cob just high enough for cutting.  Thanks, again!

There goes the boinger!  I'll try to get back later!  I wish you all a lovely day!  Make it your own in every way!  And don't forget to share it with your friends in the Soda Shoppe!

Jane, I see that Amy suggested putting the pan in the sink and I was going to say put it on a chair but, please, don't climb up on a stool!  You do not need another broken arm, do you?  Or anything else broken?

I'm sorry to hear that Bubble is not well.  I worry about all of us when our health is in jeopardy but never seem to know what to say to offer encouragement.  I'm thinking of her and hoping she is getting better each day.

Cloudy, hot, and humid here.  Pretty much the same as it has been for all of the summer.  This summer has been so full of challenges for all of us.  It is hard to remain positive.  But, this, too, shall pass.

Take care, All.

Good afternoon everyone

I can't believe how many days it is since I was here - the time has just flown.

Since I was last here both of my daughters have left Edinburgh - the elder has returned to London and is back working in her office at the London Oratory School, the younger has moved into her new student house at Dundee, though her proper term will not start till the beginning of October. I was a little bit worried about Anna being back in London, but so far it all seems to be going well, and in fact London doesn't seem to be having nearly as many problems with this virus as other parts of the UK. She has moved into a new flat share, and her lovely boyfriend has now moved back to London too (he had been working at Wells Cathedral in Somerset) - they had not seen one another since February, and I think she was really anxious about their reunion, but he made it really special for her, with flowers, perfume, a lovely dinner and a night at a riverside hotel, so I think he is in the good books! I am glad as I really like him.

Apart from that I have just been doing more of the same - reading, writing, gardening and walking. I am perfectly happy with that, and know I am so lucky to be living in such a beautiful area.

Unfortunately we are back in semi-lockdown, thanks to some of the clubs and bars in the city centre - they were allowed to re-open in late July (a big mistake) and although some abided by all the rules, others clearly had no intention whatsoever of doing anything of the kind - no social distancing at all, no contact details taken - some pictures on social media showed hundreds of people gathering in the chaotic queues outside (Aberdeen is well known for its weekend nightlife) so goodness knows what it was like inside. I do understand that people are ultimately responsible for their own behaviour, but these places - which are more than happy to take people's money - have a role to play too. No surprises then, when there was a spike in cases and the entire city was locked down again. Not everything has been closed - mainly all the pubs, restaurants and cafes, which seems a little unfair on small cafes like the one we have here in the village, but I suppose they can't make exceptions.

We are also requested not to travel more than 5 miles 'for leisure or holidays' though this is advisory only. It is frustrating for us as we live literally less and 100 yards from the border with Aberdeenshire (which is not locked down) and many miles from the city centre. This is a rural area with more farmland than shops! Anyway, I hope the restrictions on travel will soon be lifted as I would like to drive over to Aviemore to see my son and daughter-in-law, but that's hardly urgent, and as for the pubs and clubs, so far as I am concerned they can be shut indefinitely.

A friend of mine, who is currently living in France while her husband is on secondment there, has come over for the birth of her first granddaughter (who obligingly arrived a few days after my friend did). As the daughter and husband are living in my friend's house, she is renting a little flat just a couple of minutes walk from my house, so we have been able to go for plenty of nice walks (and talks...) Her husband had been planning to come over too, but now that the UK has imposed a 14 day quarantine order on anyone arriving from France he is not able to do so, as his entire leave would be used up in quarantine. He will hope to come later in the autumn. The baby is really cute and is called Iona Jennifer.

Today I have already been down to the river - decided to start making an effort to get up and doing earlier, I can't keep treating this like one long holiday! And as it is a Sunday the paths tend to get a bit busy with families and the dreaded cyclists, so it's best to go early. I found a bench and sat and read for a while - I am reading a children's book from my own childhood, The Family From One End Street by Eve Garnett (written in 1937, long before I was born, but I loved these books and read them many times). I wanted to see if I still liked it or not, and I was slightly worried that it would turn out to be dreadful, but I'm glad to say I am enjoying reading about the Ruggles family in Otwell-on-the-Ouse. Mr Ruggles is a dustman, Mrs Ruggles takes in washing, and they have 7 children, the most interesting of which are the oldest, Lily Rose, and the next one down, Kate. I wanted to call my youngest daughter Lily Rose but sadly my husband would not give in on that one!

I am still working my way through A Place to Call Home (on Prime) most nights, though on Friday I watched a most interesting documentary about the Bruderhof Community, which I had never even heard of before. In some ways their lifestyle resembles the Waldorf-Steiner communities here on Deeside, but Bruderhof seems much more extreme and to require a huge commitment from its members. They seem happy, but I suppose any that were not would have left. I don't think I could cope with all that 'communality'.

I hope everyone has a good day and that temperatures are starting to fall - it's a lot cooler here, but of course it never got remotely near the heat that some of you have been suffering. My daughter says London is finally cooling down too, for which she is very grateful.

A Good Sunday morning HELLO to EVERYFRIEND.  So happy to be back in the link with all of you, thanks to Angelface and Jackie for sending me snail mail telling me that we are up and running again😘

Not a lot new around here.....forest fires are still very bad here in Colorado and all over the west😩😢  The smoke is terrible and everyone needs to stay in and keep all doors and windows closed. 

My kitty nailed me on my hand a week ago.....actually he bit me,  and it became quite the infection right away, so I am on antibiotics again.  Have not been on any in many, many years and now I have been on them twice this month🤪

We saw Mark, Megan and Jonah for more than likely the last time before they leave for the new job in California.  We had such a fun visit with them in spite of the fact that the little guy fell coming up the step on our front porch and scrapped himself pretty badly under his chin.  Daddy tried to catch him, but his hands were full and he ended up slipping and made Jonah land even harder.  Thanks be to God, he did not hit his mouth on the corner of the step....so it could have been so much worse😩😢

Yesterday our oldest grandson turned 15 years old❣️  I know many of you remember the day he was born.....I was convinced I may never have grandchildren and now we have been blessed with SIX.  Matt is anxious to get his learners permit to be able to learn to drive, but due to Covid there are very few appointments available and he will be having to drive nearly to the northwesters part of the state, to Craig to get the license and that will be on next Friday.  They have to have this learners permit for one year before they can proceed to getting a license.  Moral of the story he will not be getting it on his 16th Birthday, but a week later. 🤪

Covid numbers are coming down again here in Colorado, so many things are being loosened again.....

I am so happy to be back up and running again......at wish you all a good rest of your Sunday.  ENJOY 😘

Hello Evryfriend!  Nice to see Rosemary and Jenny back with us!

JENNY, poor little guy!  Hope he doesn't hurt too much! But I bet he knows people love him!

And, NO, PHYLLIS, I don't want to break anything else and I think it would have been a pain jumping up and down off a stool to cut the corn off.  Putting the pan in the sink worked very well.  However, my corn cob kept slipping down in the hole, so I cast around for a solution to that and my eyes lit on a jelly jar sitting there waiting patiently for use.  I turned it upside down over the tube and it was just the right size.  But it seems I'm never satisfied.  It wiggled a lot so I took it off and folded a paper towel square and laid it on top of the tube and put the jelly jar back on.  It was a perfect fit!  No more slipping.  I also folded a dish towel and put it under the cake pan and stopped that slipping.  And I got done in record time.  This is one tip I won't forget and I'm sure to pass on.  It might have one glitch though.  My daughter loved the idea and she's a canner but she said, "I wonder how many in my generation even have and angel food cake pan".  I suppose she's right about that.  They buy their cakes!

Gotta go scratch something together for supper.  Hope Everyfriend is having a great day!

Good morning everyone, another Monday, how I disliked Monday morning when I was working, now it is just another day to do what I feel like doing and also means Yvette will be here later.  Today will be getting the tomatoes my son brought me Friday ready for the freezer.

AMY  the counters here are so high I put everything in the sink to work on it and even then it is high. I think it must have been a tall man who designed this building. I think the is only 3 tall people living here and the rest of us are short and have a problem. We are suppoed to hit 90 here today, yuck.

JANE  wish I had something interesting to share here but every day is about the same. Here in the mornings and read during the day anf have a nap most days. Not interesting.

PHYLLIS  like you I never  know what tosay to someone who is ill or had a death in the family or a friend. This about the only time of the day I could go outside, before the sun comes up and it gets way too hot for me.

JENNY  the smoke from the Ca. fires is in the air where my daughter ives in Az.

LLOYD  is your mouse a wireless one? Maybe you need new batteries in it. If is is wired maybe you need a new one.


Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone..

We put everything away that could become flying projectiles in the high winds but they did not come. :thumbup:  We did get rain and lightning which is just fine.

Today is paying a bill and then housework.

Gloria, those tomatoes will taste so much better than the canned ones from the store.

I need to get ready ...will be back later..

Enjoy your day everyone .stay safe..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Our temps are back to lower overnights and higher middays.  Today's high is only supposed to be 82 and our overnight lows are mid 60s.  My kind of weather!

AMY, your suggestion of the angel food cake pan didn't just "help somewhat"!  It was a life changer!  I got all 2 dozen ears cut off at once and the packing was also a lot easier.  THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER for the suggestion. 

This morning is a "suit yourself" morning.  I'm only doing what I enjoy.  So far, that has been breakfast, walking with Mickie, reading the paper, doing the crossword puzzles and visiting with my friends.  I do have a casserole planned for supper ad I had to make the dog food before I could feed Mikie but that's OK!  Sounds like a good day!

I wish you all a good day, too!  Make it your own in every way!  And always SHARE with your friends.
