  1. Purple Hays , I was also a OR nurse . I spent most of my 40 years in the OR with a 10 year stint in Interventional Radiology. We had ETA go through yesterday .What a storm . The house was shaking . It went over the sea wall a little but no damage .We had rain and awful wind all day yesterday .
  2. Laurie , Do not pick the first rug . I have a very similar rug in my foyer and while it is perfect for that area it would look awful in a living area.. I know you do not want to do this but maybe you should wait until the couch and chairs come before you make the decision on the rug .
  3. Mattress shopping is so weird .You go to a store and lie down for ten minutes to decide if this is the mattress you want . Last time we just went with a pillow top which has been extremely comfortable .
  4. I buy area rugs from Wayfair all the time . I also bought one I love from rugs usa .
  5. My Sister and her husband have chartered yachts a few times and sailed around the virgin islands . That was years ago when they were flush with money . I wish we had a Trader Joe's nearby . I love those kind of stores . We got showtime for .99 cents during amazon prime days so we are binging Ray Donovan . It is a little rough but Jon Voight is so good in it .
  6. Congratulations Margaret ! Enjoy your anniversary !
  7. I have done big Thanksgivings and small Thanksgivings . Several years we travelled for Thanksgiving and several years we went out to local restaurants . This year it will be just us .I usually cook but a local very nice restaurant is having a take out feast for $99 that includes a turkey ,mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole , stuffing ,green bean casserole ,rolls . pumpkin pie and a bottle of wine . That is what we may do . I ought a great throw at Wayfair last year . It is a red chevron throw .
  8. I had migraines when I started menopause . They were awful . They eventually went away . I would agree with Melody and see a Neurologist .
  9. Sharon , I am so glad you got to visit with your son . Congratulations on the upcoming birth . I really hope you can safely visit the new grandchild . My two grandchildren have my heart . My biggest thrill was seeing them soon after birth.
  10. Debbie , That gave me a real chuckle ! Trader Joe's is a drive for me so I don't go there . I do go to a store called Fresh Market . It is such a nice store . I always leave with a few items and a huge bill. I do most of my shopping at Publix. There is a face book group for Covid long timers . It is sad that so many people are having continual problems from Covid .
  11. This is the first year we voted early and I like it . Once my ballot was in the box a calm came over me and I can now ignore all the political crap until it's over.
  12. I usually wear socks around the house but those slippers are super cute .
  13. We voted . We took our mail in ballots to the drop box . We cancel each other out but it felt good to get that done.Now to watch the debate .
  14. Anita , I would say 99% you need a permit .We added a pergola over an existing deck and it required a permit .
  15. Melody ,I love the glass pumpkins . Anita , I laughed when you described the weather hot & humid . Late October and November are great weather months . Nice breeze,low humidity my favorite time of year . Laurie , nice pictures . I am glad you had a nice time .
  16. Laurie , Your pictures are great . Fall is the one season I really miss . I think your green choice is spot on for a couch . It will look so great . I recently ordered new curtains for my dining room and kitchen . They are sage green .The dining room ones are a leaf print and the kitchen ones are solid sage green . The match perfectly and I bought them on amazon . They were so inexpensive I could not believe it .Last place I would ever look for curtains . We are trying to figure out the holidays . Thanksgiving we have usually gone out to a restaurant for but that is not happening th
  17. Debbie , Thank you for trying the drug . You are doing a great service . Purple Hays , I would love to taste your limoncello . One of the members of my book club made some and brought us samples . Really Good !
  18. I think we had that chair in our living room when I growing up . They will look great with the new fabric . Somehow I thought they were going to be a print but since they are a solid your choices for couch fabric is wide open.
  19. Laurie, Glad you had a great time . Have you ever shared what fabric is going on the chairs you are having done ? I buy lots of area rugs and usually do great at Wayfair .Big selection and quick shipping !
  20. I found the best recipes online . For me it was trial and error to learn the settings and time . For chicken parm. I bread the chicken with panko bread crumbs then do 8-10 minutes in the air fryer on 370 . I then put on a small amount of sauce and some cheese and cook it for a minute at 250.I do a lot of chicken,pork chops and fish in it . It is super great for potato wedges and heating left overs .I love mine . I bought my daughter one and now she loves hers .
  21. Margaret , It is so odd seeing New York like that . I hope 2021 brings the return of some normal .
