    WOW what a fun night at the Shispering Pines -santa dance-

    The dancing was fun, but the best was the new slide that Carl made using an old conveyor belt from a cement mixer as a tunnel connected to the old vortex pipe made for a wild slide 'n splash into the pool. Too bad Carl's third hump got stuck for a moment or two, but if Santa could slip down a chimney, a three humped camel would not be stuck for long in a conveyor tunnel. I guess it's fair to let him in the pool since he built the slide. O'Malley does not like to get wet so he hung out with the cool cats on the dance floor.

    Morning Summer Is Coming MMC! It's only a week away officially. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. My favorite lunch is grilled chicken, roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella on a roll (I think Auntie asked). It was good. Just a normal work day but had a good day and had fun with my coworkers. Must have fun every day...even on not the best day. Life is too short. Have a great Summer Is Coming 1 Week Away!

    Good Thursday morning! Clouds are already moving in and they predict rain for three days straight. Not the best way to finish my staycation but nothing I can do about it. I’m bringing the car to our dealership early for some needed work and a thorough cleaning. With David’s shoulder not being 100% and 5’2 me not being able to reach many places in the car, I thought I would just let professionals clean it top to bottom. My in-laws are coming later this afternoon and we have some errands to run. The plan during these rainy days is to do some de-cluttering of our closets and to watch movies/binge watch series for some fun. Hope everyone enjoys their day.

    Thanks Auntie!
    I suffer with a condition called Menieres Disease which is less than pleasant and the medication I am on causes drowsiness so it puts me into a deep sleep and some wacky dreams certainly crop up.
    Another symptom I get is that lots of things seem to be a trigger for me feeling dizzy/sick - such as white light, loud noises, even looking up and down! , washing my hair, smells, screens, certain foods, weather etc and it gives me a residual headache which doesn't always cause pain but leaves me with a lot of pressure and neck pain.

    Thank you for the well wishes for Chris. It did reduce me to tears yesterday seeing him trying so hard. Hes definitely fighting for his two little boys.....very proud of him.


    Today will mostly be me having a me day........I have been running round after lots of people lately and I need a chill and a recharge.....so I'm having a day to myself to do what I want to do - so it will mostly be me enjoying the peace and quiet in the house, listening to some Christmas tunes (Buble is on as we speak!), researching the family tree a bit more, I will take the puppy out for a quick walk, some lunch and then a bit more of my Nan's tablecloth :) I might even make a vegetable soup in the slow cooker :)

    Well its definitely spring here in Wales! Glad to be home now, curled up in front of the fire with his two sisters whilst Mum (aka me!) sits on the sofa and does some stitching :)

    Also forgot the stock cubes so soup can wait until tomorrow!

    Good Morning, Everyone.
    Less than 2 weeks to go!
    (You know what I'm talking about.)

    Our figures for the day:
    Days to the Season: 153
    Days to Christmas Day: 195

    The HALF-WAY point to Christmas Day 2019.
    It's 13 days off.
    And as stated above, that's LESS than TWO WEEKS from now!
    (Like sand through the hour glass.......)

    As predicted, we got more rain yesterday and are soaked once again.
    (Looks like I'll have to postpone mowing again for now.)
    Today shows only a 10 percent chance of rain with a predicted high of 81.
    We start this next-to-the-last day of the work week at 63 degrees here in the capital city.

    Gee. Carl and O'Malley really got into it last night. Quite the cut-ups, those two! (Wish I could figure out what they were planning to do with those curtains and that giant candy cane. That's a real head-scratcher.)
    Oh, well. Won't stress my brain over it. I guess we will find out in due time.

    Have a Thrilling Thursday, Folks!

    Hello all.

    We are not headed to Cleveland today as planned. My mother-in-law is back in the hospital. She was taken there early this morning, around 5am, because she was unresponsive. It is appears she is in septic shock. She is stabilized and in ICU. She has really struggled since her initial issue with cellulitis. She had gone to rehab and was doing much better, but once home she quickly became sluggish and tired all of the time, refusing to move. I am wondering if they never got rid of the infection completely. While in ICU there are probably going to do a skin graft on the cellulitis affected area on her leg. It was planned for next week. However, they think it will be best to go ahead and do it now and remove any potential dead or infected skin.
    My father-in-law is not exactly healthy either. He has been dealing with cancer for some time now and while it is under control (though not gone) he still has to deal with pain and other issues from that.

    Any positive thoughts are appreciated!

    Happy Thursday MMC ~
    It’s cool and rainy here this morning. Not too much going on, it’s just a typical day of errands and chores. I’m going to head out soon to get my errands over with. My mother is coming by to visit later this afternoon. That’s about it for me. I hope everyone is well and has a nice day!

    Cellulitis is no laughing matter. I’m sending positive thoughts to your mother-in-law.

    Good afternoon ... not much going on today. Rain off and on and with temps in the upper 60s low 70s. Tomorrow is my kids last day of school and they have a 1/2 day. They can't wait for their summer break to start.
