Good Morning

Humidity snuck back in yesterday and is really hanging over us this morning ..oh well, some more porch time later.

How was the game Iz? Hope you can keep those peepers open today with those meetings. I hate meetings ..don’t like having to sit and listen to anyone rattle on. If Bruno Mars appears though that will make it all worth while! I like him..

So Florence has weakened but sounds like she’s packing a serious punch with rainfall expected. Cannot believe that so many dig their heels in and choose to remain when evacuation is mandatory. They must have a death wish.

I guess Udi and Pinky are off to work!
Busy 🐝

We went out for dinner last night , tonight burgers and salad. I’ll make them later and Terry will bbq. EZ. I’m running out of ideas for dinner can you tell? Oh! I used the marinade the other night on a pork loin roast and it was delicious! Omg so good. I even threw in some chopped pineapple I had around it during the last 10 mins of cooking and then mixed in with some rice , it was so yummy.

Okay, I’m rambling ..
Be back later

Good morning
Sorry was AWOL yesterday but we worked until 4 and came home and literally collapsed. It was not hard work but hard on this old body. My brother came with us and we were like a well oiled machine getting registration envelopes ready for over 4000 people. Yikes. But Amy said right now she doesn't think we are needed today. We are on standby. LOL

Went out for a nice lunch in between times with Amy and that was fun. No supper for us again. Just too tired and not hungry. Guess I will have to put on my thinking cap for tonight. Darn it.
Amy will be back here sunday night to sleep and celebrate our pizza anniversary. LOL. Yay no cooking again. LOL
Otherwise not much else to report. Worried for the Carolinas and hope we don't have to experience what they are going thru this year. Or any year.

Be around today and checking in.
Toodles for now

Good Morning - Can you believe I have a bite on the arch of the same foot that the tick bit - now I have a little red tiny lump that is or was really itch I put cortisone on it and it has calmed down what the heck is going on around here I don't see any bugs of any kind at all so where the heck are they hiding - oh take that back I did see a little spider but I killed it maybe there are more - I am def. doing a bug hunt today LOL


Udi - Sounds like a fun day especially the lunch part at least you are out of the house and doing something it's good. - Did you make anything for dinner last night I went a bought a cooked chicken at the grocery store yesterday nice and easy and left overs for tonight.

Iz - Still hot there I am waiting for you to tell me it has cooled down - did you get the suitcases out for your cruise yet.

Kare - Burgers on the grill sound good to me yum - Florence is not as strong as she was but the rainfall. amounts are going to be bad - I wonder if my ex''s wife son evacuated = he is so difficult - he may just ride it out I think he is nuts to do that He is in Wilmington .

So I need to go get new phones my cordless one downstairs does not work at all - but I could replace the battery I guess - maybe that's the problem. -

Ok I will be around

Good afternoon
Well we got a frantic call around 10 and threw on our clothes and drove to the convention center. No volunteers from the meeting showed up and they were in a pickle.
Just got home after 5 straight hours of making registration envelopes. Not as tired as yesterday as it was mostly sitting and so my back appreciated that.
Amy kept trying to tell us how grateful she was. Not even her company or her meeting but she was thrown in the deep end with no help or instructions. She will work til Sunday and then come here for wine and pizza and a bed. LOL
Hope everyone is good.

Good Morning

Hope you get to chill today Udi!
Thank goodness she has you guys..at least sitting is pretty easy even if you had to pull it together quickly to get there.

Sunny and muggy ...I guess it is what it is.
The Carolinas are taking a lashing ..Cath and Doug are planning to visit us next May/June and we plan a week at the beach in South Carolina in May near Charleston. Glad we’ve not booked anything yet - pickings might be slim Post Florence.

How was the day Iz ? Manage to keep going through the meetings? Did Bruno show up?

Piggy, eeeeeek. Weird...what’s getting you?
When we were at th house in the south of France Cath got bitten by something , Dr Joe checked her foot and saw 2 tiny holes so it was a spider , hers didn’t itch , it hurt. Maybe vacuum like crazy? Burgers were oh so good , just can’t beat it sometimes. Tonight, who knows.... fish n chips maybe.

Okay, I’m around ..out for lunch in a bit but until then, I’m here.

Have a good weekend all!

Good Morning

Very hot & humid out today and looks like rain again.

My ex husbands wife son is up here they were evacuated from Wilmington so came up for a visit they are in PA. not sure when they will be able to go home and hope their house will be okay.

Kare - I did vac. everything like crazy yesterday I can't find anything in here I have looked like that guy in the commercial that traps the bug he is running through the house there is nothing in here poor Mamie I comb her with a fine comb everyday and she has nothing I think the second bite was a mosquito
I would wait to plan any vacations in the Carolinas.

Udi - You are working much too hard I think a couple of dinners for you and Pinky are in order the company should pay for them - Hope you get to relax today

Om = Save me a burger

Nothing much going on today my friend sue & I are supposed to go to the movies I forget what we are going to see as she has changed her mind a few times - last time she cancelled so not sure what will happen today.

Otherwise I will be here

No work for us today. The meeting has started so we are not needed. 4000 people coming to find out how to make money. Maybe Pinky and I should have bought tickets. LOL
We are heading to Publix and will rest the rest of the day. Both of us had a restless night.

Weather here is so hot that I did not realize how hot til we got into the car and went home in the afternoon. I could not get cool with the sun pouring in the window.....kept checking the airconditioner to see if it was working.

Here all day and will check in.
Nice hearing from Erri and Om .
Be back in a few

Salad for lunch today. They gave us a sandwich yesterday that might be the culprit giving me tummy woes today

No Bruno for us, it was Shawn Mendez and Dave Matthews and a couple of lesser know female singers. The leg room at the Target center is horrible. My knee was hurting so bad. I was exhausted when I got home, even though I sat most of the day.

Cloudy today, but humid and low 80's. Upper 80's for the weekend, then supposed to cool here on Tuesday.

This weekend my usual chores and start packing! I'll be around all weekend. IZ

Iz....isn't it horrible when the knee is pressed against the seat in front. I usually end up having to leave since I get so much pain. I am glad we made our plans for the 24th. I am so looking forward to seeing you and Om. It was a glitch in Pinky's phone that called him and it turned out so good to make plans.
Not much on our list today. Amy is in show and we won't hear or see her til late tomorrow afternoon. She will be wiped as it has been one castrophe after another and she takes it so hard.
Worrying about all that we know in NC and SC ....that storm seems to not want to leave. Going to give Kare and Piggles some rain too by next week,
Have a great Saturday all whatever you do.
Here and checking in

Good morning

Sitting outside having my coffee and catching up on things.. it’s 34C (93+) so it won’t be for long! They’re saying there’s such a ridge between us and the storm , we may get some precipitation ..may not ...it would be good if we did! Looks like it will be hot all week either way. Now if this could last until January!?!

I like Shawn Mendez too ...
Hate those tight seats too, something always hurts when you come out! There’s a CSC event tomorrow , an annual rally of sorts and I’m not going lol. First time in a long time ...it’s a whole day of suppliers and corporate talking at us and pushing sales pitches down our throats and sitting for much of it. Nope. Made up an excuse and now just have to remember the lie! Not my strong suit.

I’m jealous that you guys get to visit soon ...so ideal that you are in Florida Udi where much of the time at one time or another one of us passes through!

Debating priorities today ..Terry’s at Shanan’s finishing ( I hope ) her balconies. So many cuts in the wood now that he’s at the edges and his table saw of course is here so these bits go back and forth. Shanan’s in Disneyland California at Chelsea’s bridal stagette ...nice huh? I got a pie plate hat with bows on it when I got married lol. The wedding is in 3 weeks, coming fast.

How’s your foot today Piggles? Maybe you should be wearing boots inside lol did you do a movie ? Did you ever see Crazy Rich Asian’s?

Alrighty, getting toooooo hot ....be back later.

Good Sunday morning
Well Amy is finishing up her last day and then will head here for pizza and lots of wine( her request)Lol
Not much doing...doing sheets and towels and getting ahead of this week as Wednesday is the day of doing nothing but praying and waiting for time to stop fasting LOL
Hope you all are having a good weekend. Maybe Florence will not live much longer and everyone will be safe all over. I am so depressed with the news of this hurricane and our stations are going 24/7 about it. Except of course when there is a football game on.
Will be around all day checking in

Good Morning

Happy pizza anniversary Udi and Pinky!

Another hot hot hot one ..how long have I been saying that? I’m rather looking forward to our BC trip in a few weeks for some cooler breezes.

Better get the wine glasses ready Udi!
Hectic time for Amy but so great she has home to chill out nearby. Now that Jon is off and away ...what does her hubby do? Does he have a job to keep him busy?

We went to Colossus last night for dinner and for the first time ever , I wasn’t thrilled. Ever. It’s always so busy there and the patio is bustling as well as inside and I don’t know, the hectic ness of it all makes you feel rushed if that makes sense. The food was just so so too.. disappointing. Oh well, I guess everyplace can have an off night. Shelby and Federico came along but went to a Spanish place along the street for tapas and cocktails so we joined them after for a cappuccino, Terry , I had a Grand Marnier on the rocks.

Tonight , ribs ..
Terry’s off to Dallas tomorrow for a course so I can eat Bon Bons for dinner for 3 nights lol.

The continued flooding is awful in the Carolinas ..they’ve really been battered.

Have a good Sunday!

Hot and humid here too. I think we cool off this week though. With this hot weather our first level is freezing to keep upstairs bearable. I've started packing, so have been upstairs. But when I sit in the living room I'm freezing. So I moved the temp a couple degrees to see if I can find a happy medium.

The cable guy was here for a couple hours this morning. We lost most sports channels in HD that I noticed Friday. And after Om spent a lot of time on the phone with the cable company with no help, they sent a guy out this morning. He ended up having to rewire a bunch of stuff outside.

But the good thing is I get to watch the race today

Udi and Pinky have a nice pizza anniversary with Amy!

After I fold the sheets in the dryer I think I'll be done with laundry for the weekend. I never made it out to the grocery store. I think I'll just put it off until Wednesday when I have a hair appointment then stop and get what I need which isn't much.

I was checking weather in Vancouver and this week they are in the 60's so nice and cool. I'll have to check again next weekend to make sure we have the right stuff packed for our stops in Victoria and San Francisco.

Friday I started to feel like I might be getting sick. So I've been taking Emergen-C and NyQuil trying to keep it at bay. I haven't gotten my flu shot yet this year. Hopefully it doesn't get worse.

Vikings are losing I think I'll go pack some more until the race starts.

Hi
Happy Pizza Anniversary Udi & Pinky - yum I could go for some pizza right now oh and enjoy the wine LOL


I z - No getting sick your not allowed to get sick when your going on vacation - I will keep my fingers and everything crossed that you don't

I hope it cools off a bit it is really hot here today and very humid I think we are supposed to get part of the storm on Tuesday.

Kare - Oh too bad about your fav restaurant you usually always enjoy the food there - maybe next time it will be great again. Oh no cooking for you for 3 days I think I would just eat grilled cheese or Burger King or something like that I would not cook unless I had too - Last nite I made meatloaf and it was good if I do say so myself. I have leftovers too YAY

I don't think I told you I went to the casino for the first time since the end of May and I won 200,00 so I was happy I put it away for the casino on Anthem

I will be around all day.

Oeggy

I heard Vancouver was cool - I was talking to a friend there yesterday so whether my sleeveless (!) dress will be ok for the wedding eeeek! I'll take a sweater ..and shawl We were almost in Vancouver at the same time Iz , we're there October 5-9

Hope you kick that bug hanging around Iz ..I hate that Emergen-C - reminds me of the colonscopy prep drink
I don't mind Echinacea
Happy your TV channels are up and running! I know you enjoy your sports.

I'm sort of listening /watching the rally live stream and on hold with Westjet listening to their talking - plus typing.
My head is a bit jumbled , not that it takes much! The Cruise lines are giving out inaugarals left and right - damn I should have gone.

I love Pizza Piggy - my most fave thing

We'll be in Vancouver September 30 and Victoria October 1st, then we'll be flying home from LA on October 5th while you're flying from Toronto to Vancouver.

I have most things packed, but not all I was just thinking of a top I wanted to change.

Oeggy, good job at the casino. You're within 90 days have you filled out your online check in?

Iz - I did fill out my online check in just have to ad my credit card - not even thinking about packing till I take out winter clothes since we will probably have 3 or 4 cold days 2 down and 2 back - not sure what I will bring.
Thank you re; the casino I want to go back again I have to tell myself no don't go you will lose the 200 but it's always more fun when you win.

I hope you get packed soon you don't have a lot of them left. Lucky you wish I was going now I need a vaca

I spend all my time wishing it was here and then it comes and goes by so fast and then I start thinking about something else - oh well.
