  3. I somehow threw my back out yesterday, it was a long night of ice/heat and propping legs up while lying on the bed...ugh. So glad to have the wkend to rest. I can sit in chair for a bit so will spend the wkend scrapping a bit to get my mind off the pain and lying on couch binge watching shows.

  5. Just went to level 2. Getting everything loaded. Friends not to far from us are level 3. What a difference a few hours make. Will keep in touch as things allow.

      Stay safe...I am hoping the winds change direction and burn themselves out.

  6. Had a windstorm Monday evening.  Spent all day yesterday cleaning up in part the yard. No damage, but lots of mess with branches from a half dead tree in neighbor's yard. Will spend today cleaning up the rest of the yard. Also just learned we are in a level one evacuation order for fires burning not too terribly far (20 miles) from us. There are fires burning all around in our area. The wind is still blowing, just not as hard. Will get all our necessary items and precious things together and stored in our little RV just in case. Not going to wait until the last minute.

  9. Had my oils change today and asked to check my exhaust syste, there;s a sound like a tractor driving. I have to get the engine mounts replaced, and one other thing, that is not as urgent as the mounts. Hello $750 later. So..... back to work and save save save... grrr.

      Oh, I know it's costs so much for repairs but if you drive things wear out. I worked for my son all those years and it is so hard to tell people they need expensive repairs. Driving $ = repairs or payments!

  12. I just ‘attended’ a funeral, virtual from South Africa. I bawled my eyes out to see my family participate from Australia and England. It was super spiritual. ❣️Families are Forever.

      Wow things have changed. Sorry for your loss. Sad reason to see family.

  13. There are some beautiful layouts being posted. Hopefully I can get back to scrapping soon and my hands won't hurt as much.

  14. Evelyn started Kindergarten today. She had to take the bus home. Lauren and I waited almost an hour for the bus to get here, come to find out the bus stopped 2 blocks away, and they never told Lauren where to pick her up. They took her back to the school and she had to sit there until her dad could go pick her up. We were NOT I’m pressed. Poor little girl. 😭

      That is horrible...poor kid. There are always stories like that at the beginning of school year. Let's hope the school gets it right  from now on.

      That is crazy heat. So glad you stopped for your own safety. Going door to door in that heat is too dangerous.

  20. So I cut off a piece of my finger this morning. Lesson: don’t use sharp rotary cutters on lack of sleep. I found the piece of finger when I got home. So much blood. Cut through some vessels - - not good.

      Ouch. I hope it heals quickly for you and get rest before using it again. Hugs

  21. Been dealing with a lingering migraine the last few days. Today is the first I feel slightly human. Playing catchup!

  22. Yesterday we said our final goodbyes to our beloved son, taken too soon. We had a lovely service attended by family & friends as well as a live stream for those who were unable to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions. Our daughter, my brother & their families watched on from Western Australia. Further investigations are being carried out as to the cause. We may not have answers for a few months if we ever do.

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      So sorry for everyone involved.  Hugs to you
