Good morning ladies of the world,
Work report - came in to find I was all alone yesterday. Did almost $750 in sales. That's alot of work for one person. And I am scheduled to work for the next 5 days in a row. That's too much for this old bod / broad
Lots of people in town for the apple festival and the cranberry festival in 2 different directions from here. I am sorry to miss all that great shopping.
Farm report - the big flock of turkeys seemed to abandon us while we were gone. DH was forelorn but they reappeared yesterday. No doubt that the dumb things were trooping up and down the area, trying to remember the place where the good eats were. No further sign of the bear who did make an appearance about 2 weeks ago. Getting close to his winter nappy time (and I don't mean diaper to those of you Brits
) Goldfinches have moved on to a warmer climate. Junkos have moved in to take their place. We should be seeing the eagles soon again.
Weather report - DH picked me up last night - we went with Mom to a fish fry at a very busy and VERY SLOW restaurant. On the way home, it was snowing. Light but snowing. Didn't accumulate to anything but it was pretty windy and chilly yesterday. Did not deter the people at the cranberry festival though.
I went to bed about 11 yesterday and woke up at 4:30 and could not get back to sleep. Tossed and turned for a good hour before I decided to just get up.
I am going to crash hard later on which will not be good.
At least I will fall face first in popcorn and not hurt myself. Unless of course I fall into one of the popcorn warmers with metal and sharp edges which will cause a whole host of gashes and bruises. Ever since I started working and going to bed early, I wake up in the wee hours like this. Makes me feel very sorry for people like Annie who don't sleep well at night. In fact I am already feeling tired. Hope I wake up from a shower as I have a long day ahead of me.
Mom is doing well. DH warmed up and served her lunch yesterday. She said she is so pampered and feeling like a queen. Will be hard (and I think she knows this) when she goes back home to an empty house in a few weeks. Her blood pressure is still on the low side - DH helped her with the b/p cuff yesterday too.
Mel - I like the cute bear made of pumpkins. Some people are really creative when it comes to things like that. I can only imagine your distress when the alarms started kicking in at the end of the day.
Glad it finally quieted down. Poor Jen. That sounds very uncomfortable. Will probably take a long time to heal too. "When cans attack....". Sounds like the latest segment in a Madcat novel
I'm glad you got a laugh out the Groucho thing - I thought you would.
Ceejay - have a good trip and an enjoyable weekend.
Shad - did they take liberties explaining this job at the onset or were they just evasive about it? Sorry to hear that you are forging new territory. Even worse when you are under a time crunch as happens in your line of work. I hope you can figure things out - I'm sure you can but even the strongest get rattled a few times in life. Got a giggle out of the little chick / big turkeys comment...
Laura - stay warm this weekend - heard that the temps were supposed to take a nosedive. Costco is supposed to be very good for making and prices on prescription glasses. I would assume they'd be the same on contacts. I got glasses there once - the frames were kind of flimsy but I was shocked at the price being about 1/4 of what I'd pay at places like Lens Crafters. They held up pretty well too. Yes, Mom got some good books - large print too which is easier on her cateract eye. She said she is tearing through the book. I have to find time to read my Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. It finally came in and I only have 3 weeks with no renewal since it's still on the hot list of holds. Good luck with the health assessment stuff.
Annie - yay for keeping your cool when the crazy person almost knocked you off the road. Maybe you should have pulled up close and given her the stink eye with your allergy swollen, red and teary eyes
I dread the onset of allergy season with no good meds to fix it. Looked at DS's engagement website - very nice! Are you looking at a certain color for your MOG (mother of groom) dress? Or just something pretty? With your coloring you will look good in anything.
I'm sitting upstairs at the computer desk across from Mom's bedroom. She is laying in bed "tooting".
I am laughing quietly. Yes, even at my age I am still immature. I'd better get out of here and into the shower before I wake her up.
Hello to the rest of the gang, will check back in tonight.
