  1. I'm jealous; we had another major snowfall yesterday morning - thick, wet, heart-attack snow. This morning we woke up to ridiculous cold wind, bringing the wind chill temperature to -27C. I'm anxiously waiting for the glaciers to recede from the back yard, so we can see green grass again. Unfortunately that won't be happening for a while, but you play the hand you're dealt when you live on the "frozen tundra"! LOL Stay well, let's keep flattening the curve. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  2. It sort of looks like I'm the odd one out here; every morning (whether we're self-isolating or not), I get dressed (jeans or slacks and a nice top/blouse), put on some tinted moisturizer, a touch of blush, eyeliner and all day lipstick, then run a curling iron through my hair and I'm ready for the day. DH often tells me I look nice - and I like to; whether it's just him and me, or if we're expecting company. I worked in a very public job for 26 years and often run into people I know, or who know me, and I wouldn't like to face them knowing I looked like an old hag once I retired! After my shower, my morning routine takes less than 15 minutes from beginning to end, so it isn't an onerous task. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  3. OMG, sorry to get off topic, but I just looked at the date to see when I joined (or re-joined) CC, to see that I've got 8800 posts . . . they either add up quickly, or I'm a tad too chatty! Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  4. Pretty please, pretty please bring back Steak Diane (the real stuff) in the Pinnacle! The Good Old Days had some great gastronomic memories. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  5. Great to hear your Mom's feeling better, but I'll bet you're still worried about what's going to happen to them through all this. Know your friends are still here cheering you on, wishing good things for all of you. Now back to sewing masks. . . . it seems the authorities are starting to change their tune on the wearing of masks as a precautionary measure. I'm trying to get ahead of the game at least where my family and friends are concerned. Take care! Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂 Gerry
  6. After all these years, I still use her recipe (she's been gone 35 yrs), but I've never been able to find her 1 crust rhubarb custard pie recipe. I've tried different ones but they weren't the same as hers. One day I'll ask her about it. LOL Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  7. No, using my mom's old recipe; we seemed to be needing emotional and physical comfort and it provided both. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  8. Thanks for the Daily. Looking at @kazu post about April Fool's Day being cancelled, I'm going to make this Leftover Baked Ham and Bread Pudding Day. (last night's menu) Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  9. Thanks for the Daily - clams on the half shell? I might have to make DH a Bloody Caesar and call it a day. It's good to see the two sisters close together making their way home; wishing everyone well. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  10. I think that's it for me for today; thanks John and everyone else - it was fun. Till next time, stay at home and stay well. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂 Gerry
  11. The PE cam doesn't seem to want to let go of the Zuiderdam!
  12. I know she's a lot smaller, but look at how much more elegant the Zuiderdam looks compared the the Edge. Night and day.
  13. Wow, you can see the red ribbon all the way around!
