G'day everyone,

Gloria I can so picture your house with all the decorations, I bet Jack is having a ball doing it all. Great idea of the gift vouchers rather then get some rubbish that won't be looked at again after Christmas Day. I loved the Barnes & Nobles book stores when we were in America, the stand out one was the one in Boulder, could have stayed in that store for weeks

Glenda I can also picture your house and can hear you saying 'its so pretty'. It must be lovely to come home to a lit up friendly home.

Suz wow that was quite something when you got married to have this instant family of children, grand children and great grand children and a white Christmas
As you probably gathered, I am 'down under' and we are in for a very hot Christmas These days our Christmas is rather low key, we have 2 children and 3 grand daughters, our daughter lives in Melbourne and our son lives in our hometown Adelaide. As a Christmas gift dh and I have booked a holiday home for all of us halfway from our house and halfway from our daughters place, we will both have to travel about 5 hours. It will be the first time the 3 grandgirls will have met other then over the net camera.
It should be fun.

It was with some amazement that we saw pictures in the paper of the attempted coup in Manilla by tanks crashing their way through the Peninsula Hotel. It was the very hotel we stayed in when we were in Manilla for Alan's work. Knowing exactly where it is and the security that was in place, like 12 armed guards at the entrance, just goes to show that when there is a will there is a way.

Had a lovely bike ride along the foreshore this morning, the day is not going to be quite so lovely with a predicted temperature of 38 degrees (around 100 F) it was in the low twenties early this morning, just perfect.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Cheers
Maria

Suz, oh my! Already that much snow! We had 3 inches of that very, very wet snow right after Thanksgiving, but it didn't stick at all to the roadways and sidewalks. We are so funny! There was a news person with a microphone on one of our streets saying, "This is snow and over here there is none (sidewalk)." It must have been a slow newsday.

I went Christmas shopping with my two DIL's on Saturday. Got all the kids presents. Those girls are so much fun - they kept me laughing and laughing!

Well, seems like a slow newsday here too. Nothing much going on. We finally got the tree up yesterday and it has presents under it! I am ahead of the game right now!

Maria, your pages were wonderful, as usual. I cannot wait to read the whole thing at once. You are very talented. I did not realize your girls had not all met each other yet. Australia is a big continent, isn't it?

We still haven't seen Colton. He is one week old today. They are staying in and it is cold now. We thought we would leave them along for a little while. I have a hunger to rock that baby.
Glenda

Hi everyone:
I have been among the missing for a while as this past week has been very hectic. but now the big show on Saturday night is over, and our Chorus Christmas show is over as of last night. Now I am resting up, before the next onslaught. My friend has a show next Monday with the Kitchen Band and she has me singing in it and playing one song on the piano. finally on the 17th we will do caroling in the park to all those shut-ins who are ill and.or housebound.

Our show last night went very well. The chorus finally came through. At the rehersal on Sunday p.m. I could have tossed them all out, but by Monday they were concentrating, and did a very good job. At least if the audience response was true. i was happy with what they did. And now I will have to put together what we will do in the spring, starting in january. Never a dull moment around here.

Our ladies monthly is getting together soon and we are having a cookie exchange, so I dug out some of my WW cookie recipes and that is what I am making. All 1 point cookies. I haven't made the angel macaroons in a long time and thought that would be a good one. And easy to do. I also have a chocolate one and a spice drop, so my 6 plates will have a variety. There are 7 of us that get together once a month for lunch and of course for Christmas we draw names and get a small gift.

I haven't been able to go to WW the past couple of Tuesdays as the schedule has just been too full. I do try to stick to the points but last nnight the cookies and punch got me. I haven't been on the scale this a.m.

I am walking about a mile every a.m. even today when the temp was a little chilly. I actually had to wear a jacket and gloves.

Maria, you'll have a warm Christmas. Your Christmas plans sound exciting and I'm sure you will have some nice pictures of your girls getting together for the first time. It will be fun.

I hope that now this week i will be able to get some of our lights up. Our neighbor has said he will help me, as my DH just can't do that sort of stuff any more. He hasn't the stamina.

I will try ot keep better communications with you all now.

Suz. We used to live in Clayton, N.Y. And we will be celebrating our 32nd anniversary this month. It is the second time around for both of us. We have 6 children ( mine and His) and then we have 14 grandchildren and now 6 great grands. I really feel like an ancient citizen when I see it all in print like that. We do enjoy Florida.
Where you you in relation to Toronto?

Happy wee, to you all. Ann

Hi all been missing for a while. Just plain been busy.

I have news. My newest Granddaughter was born Monday night a little after 9:00 Pm. She was 6# 12oz and 19 inches long. She really didn't want to come out into the cold world of Minnesota. DIL was in labor for 25 hours before they stopped everything and took the baby. Neither of them were in trouble it was just that Ella was still so far up DIL could not push her out. Both are doing well. DIL wasts to breast feed and it wasn't until yesterday that her milk came it. I haven't heard other wise so I guess all is going well. They will go home tomorrow. I wish they didn't have so many stairs in their house. 3 levels with bathrooms on 2 floors the top and bottem The kitchen in the middle. Laundry down one flight. I'm thinking it will be hard on DIL for a few days. Her mother is going to be there but not until Tuesday. Once more I have guilt feelings for not being there.

It has been to cool for the pool exercises the last few days. But we are having them tomorrow. I'm really glad because i need to get out of this funk I've been in and I'm sure its because of lack of exercise. I'm still walking and doing the walk aerobic at the club house but i think i must need more because of this mood. And now tonight I can't seep either. What a pain.

Been going to Physical therapy for back pain. Can't really say it has helped much. just about the time I think it has we get cool weather and I'm back to pain again.

I'm done with shopping for Christmas and now just in a holding pattern until the 19 when we leave for Minnesota for Christmas. Hope all the snow melts and it warms up to 70 before I get there. Ya that will happen

Maria the new pages were wonderful. You do such a nice job. The picture you fixed of Glenda GB turned out good too.

Ann we don't put out lights. I have 2 small trees that I plug in. So of the people go nuts with the lights. But I do enjoy looking at them.

On the weight front for me I was up 2 pounds this week so it is back to the core program for me. I'm still under my goal by a few pounds but don't like the scale to go up that much at once.

See you all later

Hi Everyone-
Well you can certainly tell that everybody is busy, since we are not having much action here.
Thanks to our neighbors help, we have lights up and we look very nice. Our neighborhood seems to be the best dressed one in the park. So I just coulndn't let our house go naked. My DH can't do anything like that anymore, so my good neighbor helped me with the stuff I couldn't do, like string a rope light along the eaves of the carport. He is a VERY good neighbor.

I put up our little Christmas tree with the lights already in it, and put up some other decorations so we do look festive. Now to get to Christmas cards. My shopping is all done with gift cards now. I have discovered that when I purchase gifts, and then mail them, I pay almost as much again. So I can do bigger gift cards.

Big rehersal this p.m. for the Kitchen Band program tomorrow. But fortunatly I have a small part to I don't have to be there all afternoon. I love my friend dearly, but we have totally different methods of rehearsal, and so I can easily go nutso with much of hers, since her group carries on a lot. Of course they always come through, but that looseness just drives me goofy.

Karen: I hope you have a great time back in frozen Minnesota. And you are right, I don't think you are going to temps in the 70s there, but there has been a lot of strange weather, Who Knows?

My DH is losing weight for no apparent reason, and so the Dr.s have him set up for a whole bunch of tests. I went on line to find causes of unexplained weight loss, and am sorry that I did. Scared me a lot! I'm sorry I looked it up.

Well- time to get breakfast, and then dressed for church.
Have a good week. Ann

G'day all,

Monday morning and I am happy to say that I have lost a small bit, 0.2 kg but that is better than nothing.
I still have some of the lemon detox diet left over and have decided to have that today. Ate and drank far too much this weekend, a day with just drinking won't hurt.

Ann unexplained weight loss is not good but there can be many other reasons then the sinister ones.

I did not share this with you all but I will now....10 days ago I had a massage and the girl found a lump in my neck and wanted to know if I was aware of that. I wasn't and she was very insistant that I follow it up. I went to the doctor and she said an ultra sound would be in order and then thought I should have my cancer specialist check it out.
I have a number of nodules (lumps) on my thyroid and one was 4 cm big.
I had part of my thyroid removed when I was 19 and thought that was the end but apparently this is all related.
I saw my cancer specialist who also did an ultrasound and then did a needle biopsy on 2 of the larger lumps.
He was fairly confident that it would be OK and last friday he rang to say all is well but that he will keep a check on it when I have my annual check up for my breast cancer.
Phew....what a relieve and a few anxious days were spent awaiting the outcome of the tests etc.
So who knows Ann it might not be what you are dreading it to be and all will be well.
Hope all is going well with your rehearsals.

Nice to 'see' you Karen and congratulations on the new grand daughter, I love the name Ella. I guess we never stop worrying about our kids but I am sure they will manage just fine.
It will be lovely for you to go 'home' to Minnesota at Christmas despite the snow!

A lovely cool day here today but it will heat up again by the end of the week

Have a great day everyone,

Cheers
Maria

It seems like forever since I have been here. Time just seems to fly by and I can't catch up. Still shopping. I was in Brown County a few weekends ago for our annual wicked women weekend. It was fun. We had a gorgeous house that fit all 18 of us. While I was gone they went and cut a christmas tree so I had to decorate it when I came home. I keep forgetting to water the thing. School has been so busy this year-it makes the time go fast. We had a snow delay day last week. I couldn't believe that they were on a 2 hour delay. Snow around here causes a big uproar and makes the weather people so happy. It has been raining for a couple of days and it isn't supposed to stop till Thursday. I haven't got all the leaves raked up yet.
Ann what is a kitchen band. I am picturing you banging on pots and pans. Glad you got your lighs up. Sometimes looking up medical info on the net can be scary.
Glenda your little new one is precious.
Karen I hear there is cold weather up north. Hope you don't run into it. Congrats on the new baby granddaughter. I love the name.
Maria how nice to be able to spend the holidays all together. I didn't realize that the girls have never met. Good to hear that the lump is nothing serious but keep an eye on it.
Have to run. I have to finish a sweatshirt for a friend. Remember the grandkid flake shirts I taught them last year-well they keep having to add kids. Tomorrow is mother in law shower day. Fun, fun.

Hi Suz, I had to go back and find the thread where you started. I am in Ohio right across the river from Kentucky. I see you like to garden and sell your veggies. What a great hobby. Hang in there with the WW. I have been really bad lately [like today]. I was doing good and lost 5lbs but they seem to have found me again. I work in a school cafeteria part time. We like to talk about everything but we still try to lose those lbs.

Well the last show is over as of tonight. some of our chorus gals did the punch and cookies for the social hour afterwards. Now we just have the caroling in the park for those not able to get out, and that requires no practice.

Peggy: You are about right as far as the Kitchen Band is concerned. The instruments are made of whatever anyone has, as well as several kazoos, lots of bells and maracas, a washboard or two, some drums, a tub bass, and a Boomba. and of course this is all done with piano background. It is just good nonsensical fun for the most part.

Maria: I'm so glad that all turned out well for you , and I certainly hope that will be the case with Phil. Sometimes looking things up can just be too scary. I'm not going to do that again.

Karen: Congrats for you and your family and the new baby granddaughter. Ella is a nice old fashioned name. I like it. I'm sure you will have a grand time when you go north, and I'm sure that you will find that your DIL has been just fine.

Suz: What is happening with you? Any snow up there? I was speaking with friends in Clayton, and there is some there. Hope you are doing well with the points. I messed up big time tonight, with having to put out great trays of cookies. And of course there were the broken ones that just needed taking care of :.

DH has two tests this week and I will feel much better when they are over and done with.

I'll let you all know what is happening. Good night for now. Ann

Morning everyone

I am still around just very busy. When we took in our bake sale goodies on Dec 1st I was asked if I could do some more for a bake sale on Dec 8th so of courde i said yes I live near a small village and about 25 from a larger town so we always plan 1 day per week ro go into "town" so thats usally a full but last week we went in twice My DH had an appointment with his accupucurist he has a condition called tinnitius (ringing in the ears) which was caused by a closed head injury and he has this ringing 24/7 and when the weather changes the ringing gets louder It has been quite bad for the last month

Ann You asked how far I am from Toronto We live about 1 & 1/4 hours north east of toronto when we go to Michigan we drive right through Toronto

Today is another busy one we have the churchs annual xmas pot luck lunch and then we are going to the seniors xmas dinner That is going to be just way to much food and temptation I will try to be very careful with my choices but I think points will be very high today

Well i should go have 1 more coffee, then breakfast then start to get my food ready for the pot luck

Take care Suz

G'day all,

Another friday and a very hot one at that

We are off to a day/night cricket match this afternoon, going to be lovely tonight but not so great this afternoon. I am packing some salad rolls rather than buying the usual take away stuff you get at these venues.
When we did a rafting tour on the Colorado river, we received a packed lunch in a cute little esky so that is the esky I will be using.

Read about the severe weather some of you are experiencing, the photos are just unbelievable. America is a beautiful country but you sure have your share of natural disasters, the hurricanes in summer and now these severe icestorms

At the moment we do have bushfires raging out of control on Kangaroo Island, a small island off our coast. No back burning was allowed by the 'greenies' this year and this is the result, nature is now taking care of the back burning and more.

It was nice to 'see' you Peggy, sounds like you had another fun trip with the 'girls'.

Hope all the tests on your dh are just about completed Ann and I hope the results were favourable.

I had a hair cut and now badly need to colour my hair, I will be off to do that before going out this afternoon.

Cheers
Maria

Wish I knew why I cannot post. I have tried.

Well, I will be darned. This one went through. Found a post-it note with my user name and passwords.

Girls, about 1/4 million people are still without electricity and a big snowstorm is supposed to be coming. The older people are in dire straits. Please pray that we get electricity back on.

Busy weekend ahead. Maybe from now on I can post. Yea!
