@Pumpkin1172 ugh not snow. Temps have dropped here but not snow.
My friend in Calgary just canceled her visit here. Her elderly mom lives here and when she’s in town we usually have a get together. She used to live up the street from me.

@bobbie68 good to hear from you. Hope Liv is able to get her job sorted out. It’s always a worry for our children no matter how old they are being out with this virus.
Only thing we did today was drive to the car mechanic so husband could drop his car off and I drive him home.
Thanks, I decided on chicken & rice soup. It was delicious if I do say so myself. I prefer broth type soups, Mr likes cream soups lol. I put lots of veggies in it.
Good to hear your feeling better. I guess the Covid 19 is putting a crimp in your relocation plans. Stay safe.

@mckennarose it is a strange new world indeed. It’s so scary for all of you living in or near NY. ANd it’s true many don’t own cars there and rely on trains or subway system. Especially those who work in Manhattan where there is no parking. I worry for my brother and his family who live on Long Island.

@Charade67 I hope that office knows how lucky they are to have you.
I just got an email from my Doctor saying they were doing some appointments via a telehealth type thing if suitable. Trying to reduce people in the office. I guess that would be fine for people needing Rx refills or to discuss symptoms to see if an office visit is necessary. I think it’s a good idea. I don’t want to risk sitting in a waiting room.

Today I supported a local icecream business too! Their physical building is closed, but they’re taking online orders paid online, then for 2 days, this week Fri & Sat. They distribute the orders from their parking lot. You wait by your car with flashers on, they call out order #, and when yiur # is called you indicate where you are and they bring your order. It seems to be working. They are a small business and make great icecream. So while they aren’t open they’ve found away to stay afloat. Clever. This is my second time ordering. I ordered last week too.

Have a good night everyone! Only 9:30 here so gone midnight for most of youse! Guess Schumi should be up in awhile getting the bacon ready for us!

Ooh, what happened is fell asleep early. Night owl I am not, but leaving lights on, as I will try to get back to sleep. That 🐪 is waiting patiently, as while it is Wednesday, I need more sleep, so he does too. Night homies.

Ah. though it is a rainy and cool feeling day, hello high of 48. Periods of heavy rain, and yep, these are the kind of days I do not mind working in a warm home. And ugh, a report of snow too. Happy my rain is not close enough to freezing that it becomes snow. Hope the snow goes away, for those still seeing it.

With that, a Happy Wednesday is here. And why yes, I woke the camel up, and he’s here to wish homies a happy hump of a day.

And for those hoping our homie Wendy is feeling good, and no more back issues, with a go countdown to Halloween horrors Universal style, here’s a what day it is reminder:

Thus, yes, a weekend is slowly coming into sight. Get over this middle hump of a day, and woot! A Friday will be here in two more sleeps. And yay know, time for a sleep in Friday. Yeah, long enough connecting, I need a three day break. Woot!

Ah yes, time to refill the tea. I seem to need warm. And nice, we got bagels the other day, so toasted one and did that smear of cream cheese, also just bought, and decent snack if a breakfast. Don’t worry, seems the freshman 20 will be all us teleworkers. 😊

    pumpkin.......thanks, I always enjoy cooking and apparently my dinner last night was one of the nicest yet according to my son!!! Praise indeed!!! Yes, it`s been confusing to say the least for some businesses as to whether they are essential.....I`m shocked we are getting a wine delivery today...didn't expect it, but just got a txt to say it`ll be here today and will be dropped off with no contact, and thanks for ordering. Well, it`s a standard to monthly delivery from that company, but, I guess it`s keeping delivery drivers in jobs which can only be good.

    When does your heavy snowfall stop where you are?? I`m so sorry I forget sometimes where everyone is.......and glad you are doing so well with the course!!!


    bobbie……..so good to see you here. Hope Liv can change positions easily....I hope they are so glad she is actually at work enabling the stores to open that they`ll help her out. So many people to be grateful for right now.

    Take your time getting better bobbie.....I always think it`s too easy to do too much when we start to feel a little improvement....so take it easy even after you feel you`re improving......that's Nurse Carole telling you who has no medical training whatsoever......lol....well, I am a first Aider if that counts!!!

    Thanks, I am more or less back to normal now.....patience is the key. yes, not meeting friends is tough, but we have technology which is amazing. Common sense really.....so many flouting the no going out to visit folks though. Keep feeling better.....


    mrose…..it`s hard to keep a distance from family, but may keep them alive is what we`re all thinking......I know my sister struggled only seeing my mum through her window last Sunday.....but got to be so careful.

    Oh I know Hoboken.....lol.....made a quick visit there during one of our trips.....fabulous views of the City!!!! Hope your dad is doing ok...….

    Peppercorn sauce is delicious......so easy.....cream, butter, beef stock, shallots pounded down to pulp, but that's just for me, diced finely would be good, and around 2 large tablespoons of peppercorns ground up in a pestal and mortar, again personal preference, we like ours very peppery. There are a million recipes online, some add brandy some add other ingredients like Worcestershire Sauce....we prefer ours with no alcohol (weirdly lol) I never measure, just by eye.....it is delicious!!!!


    Charade...hope folks embrace the new way to help them in these times.....so many are being left by the wayside and still need all the help they can get. Nice on the tax return too......and yes, we are supporting local businesses where we can too. They need all the help they can get to survive.


    No bacon today Sue......we have plenty, but keeping it for the weekend......dull breakfast of toast this morning, none of us fancied anything else.


    Lynne is up and ready too..…..nice cup of tea is the cure all for everything in the UK...….


    And another shout out to macraven, keishashadow and tink1957......hope you guys are all ok...…..:flower3:




    I`m so glad my mum is fine with all of this and understands she can`t get visitors nor go out to anyone else`s house......it`s hard but it may keep her healthy a lot longer. She is or was, a real social butterfly!

    We are all calling her more often and making sure she has what she needs. I can`t physically shop for her as I`m 5-6 hours away anyway, but I`m sending her magazines and books from online sources......all contactless delivery. She`s well aware of the risk from cardboard delivery boxes, and will deal with that accordingly, but happy to know she is dealing well with no visitors rule.

    Still a little crazy over here with shops apparently.....and the weather here is so beautiful right now.....we`re lucky to have a lovely garden, woods and forests behind us that are usually deserted and the beach is a 15 minute walk away in the other direction where everyone seems to be keeping a distance according to friend who walked her dog there this morning. Roads are deserted here, but further into cities its not as deserted.

    Our health workers are begging everyone to please self isolate and not mix. It`s heartbreaking to see their pleas and folks to ignore them. They have posted lots of images holding up paper signs saying similar things, I`m sure it`s the same in the US.



    483291



    Local communities are all pulling together.....notes through everyone`s door, again no contact, with a telephone number to call if you need help of any kind....shopping, post letters and such or even to just chat. Stark reminder on the bottom to beware of scammers.....it`s a sad day when they have to put they`ll never ask for bank details or similar. But, there are some real lowlifes out there.

    Today...…..will wander in the garden as it is so beautiful......

    Dinner tonight is another bone in pork chop.....but wonder if we may get to grill outside as it`s so mild. We`ll eat inside, but it`ll be our first grill of the year so far if we do. No idea what to have for lunch...….but as we had breakfast so late it`ll be a while...….







    Happy Wednesday right enough to all...……..

    Yep, tea drinker since little, Schumi. When I went to England twice, I always came home with tea. And yes, your meals always sound lush. I have to limit our use of pork, as little one is not fond of pork loin, chops and meals with pork, but hey, we all make an exception with 🥓 .

    Quiet morning is nice, when only DH and I are working and up. Kids are sound asleep, and I think little one has a morning class, so she may be the first kid up, though older one, still on break this week, is more of an earlier riser, and a more pleasant riser too. 😊

    Kyle isn`t a fan of pork either.....any other meat he`s fine with, especially steak ::yes::...….seems to be common among my friends kids too......Kyle is having macaroni cheese tonight, so pork chops are usually split into packs of two in freezer when we bring home the order from wholesale butcher we use…...yes, bacon is always a popular choice!!!!

    Sounds a nice quiet morning for you...….:wave2:

    Seems Kyle and little one would get along fine, Schumi . She enjoys a good cut of steak. Hope your afternoon is going well, and seems like a good day to pop open a nice bottle of wine, new or already had.

    Not sure dinner, though a mention of noodles and cheese would be a winner in our house. Hmm,I do have leftover pasta from the other night, milk and cheese. Maybe that can be our meal too. Hmm, 4 way consensus here. Though I tend to be the majority decider. LOL

    Dreary, rainy Wednesday in my part of the world. Expecting 1-2 inches of rain today and by the looks of the ditches this morning we are well on our way. At work today. After this week we will start rotating our days in the office.

    Another case was announced at my DH's work. I think his employees are a little on edge now. The employee worked in a different building so no immediate concern but still....

    I am starting to hear of friends and family being furloughed or laid off. Most are friend's teenage kids who work in the food service industry but my DH's aunt was furloughed from the power company. Crazy!

    I may try to do take out for dinner. I think I need a break from cooking rolleye11[1].gif

    Charlie is still mostly just filling orders for on line. Target did implement a few positives. They have increased their wages to $15.00 and are letting them shop an hour ahead of the public on three days a week. At this point we will take anything to help.
    Wow! That is great for him! Hopefully some of these folks in the service industry can get temporarily hired by these big stores until things get better. Scary about the trucks not being full though.

    My boss is going to drive me insane though. Last week, when we were researching telehealth, I made a list of the insurance companies we deal with and what their billing requirements were. I told my boss that one company required that you join their telehealth network.
    My DH's work just waived the $10 fee to get a Teladoc consult. That is big business now. I wish I would have bought stock when my friend told me to 6 months ago. The price has doubled now.

    On a happier note, I decided to support a local business today by buying ice cream at the shop near my office. They were offering a take out special of 2 pints of ice cream, waffle bowls, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, peanut butter, graham cracker topping, cookie topping, and sprinkles. We had some very yummy sundaes for dessert tonight made with chocolate ice cream and cookies & cream ice cream.
    What a great idea and YUM! These small businesses are really coming up with some great ideas to keep afloat! I saw a pizza place selling make at home pizza kits. So cool!

    Peppercorn sauce is delicious......so easy.....cream, butter, beef stock, shallots pounded down to pulp, but that's just for me, diced finely would be good, and around 2 large tablespoons of peppercorns ground up in a pestal and mortar, again personal preference, we like ours very peppery.

    That sounds delicious! I am going to have to try that next time we have steaks.

    Quick post while I am on lunch break.
    Charade...hope folks embrace the new way to help them in these times...
    Today we had 4 people just not show up. I managed to get one by phone and his excuse was that he didn’t understand the instructions. It is literally click on the link in the email I sent you and it takes you right into the HIPAA compliant chat room. No need to signs up for anything. I swear a lot of people have suddenly become computer illiterate. The email also said to call me with any questions.

    What a great idea and YUM! These small businesses are really coming up with some great ideas to keep afloat! I saw a pizza place selling make at home pizza kits. So cool!
    the ice cream place I went to yesterday is now teaming up with a local Italian restaurant to do a pizza dinner and ice cream dessert take out.

    Something fun for today. Six years ago we were expecting snow of a coating to an inch. Here’s what actually happened.

    Yeah, I sometimes think the weather people make up the snow totals, Charade. We had the opposite one year. Saying 4 to 6 inches and we got a dusting. But of course, that forecast made the bread and milk frenzy.

    Just a dreary day, as Cam has, and neat for a pizza kit. None done around here, with no real good small business ice cream shop close either.

    And ack, see some one got to the pasta. Oops. I think I may have another box, will have to see. Otherwise, change in dinner plans. Maybe suggest getting dinners from our favorite Jewish deli. Hmm. Hope all the homies have a lush meal, like Schumi.

    cam......peppercorn sauce is delicious for steak, and with chicken.....it’s been a long time since I made it fresh, so I was glad it was a hit with my two. Hope your rain doesn’t last too long......and yes, although I love cooking, it’s take out on Saturday night....and it’ll be pizza.


    Charade......it no longer surprises me some folks can’t complete a simple function at times. Simple instructions don‘t seem to be so simple at times!




    A few days into lockdown.........we’re all doing ok.......although I have run out of flour, of all kinds! Got a grocery delivery coming tomorrow morning and no flour to be had there either......I guess I won’t be baking much next week.

    Managed to get another grocery delivery slot for two weeks from now and hopefully they’ll have flour nearer the time and I can add it later, as it’s showing sold out for now. Slots are like gold dust right now.

    We’re also using the local butcher and village/farm stores for essentials as they are open a few hours every day.

    It‘s quite nice just the three of us home all the time for now.....but nice. We all sat out in the garden for a while this afternoon as it was just beautiful, then we played NYC monopoly for a while before dinner.....haven’t done that in a while.....then Kyle and I payed a few games of poker......think I forgot most of what he taught me few years back!!

    Wine didn’t arrive today, but coming tomorrow......told them there’s no rush......we have plenty of wine at home always!! But they were full of apologies for the delay.....

    So, two deliveries are the highlight of our day tomorrow......and think it’s to be another glorious day, so we’ll get out in the garden again hopefully.......

    Hope your Wednesday has been a good one.......

    Hi everyone...I let the teens have the TV today to play their video games. I have it on the news a lot but I have noticed that I get more depressed when I have it in the background all the time, so I am going to turn it on from time to time on the anchors that I like. I watch CNN and have narrowed down the ones I like.

    It is rainy and cold here today. The heat is on a bit to take the chill out. Brian took the kitty to the vet this morning for his treatment as he starts telecommuting tomorrow. He reminded me he will be working and that I can't bother him to much. He will still take care of the bending and lifting stuff I am afraid to do. Charlie is pretty good and really is home during the day. Liv tries but her OCD is so bad right now that she is afraid to touch things. We are trying to work around her and I.

    Last night got take out from our favorite local Italian place. We are trying to get take out a couple of times a week to support our locals. I had their eggplant and liguine it is so good. I love eggplant but hate frying it so it is a treat. Tonight I am going to cook a turkey breast. I am trying to stretch our meat out. The stores are just not stocking it so I want to make sure we have some in our diet. I am alternating with pasta and vegetable dishes. We do like tofu so that will be on the menu as well.

    I talked to Brian and the teens about setting up a trip for the fall just in case things don't work out right away to move down to Florida. I booked a trip for September 24th to October 1st staying club level at PBH. Brian and Charlie love the halloween stuff, so I will by them a two day halloween event ticket in addition. Liv and I don't like the scary stuff at night so we will do our own thing. This will be part of Charlie's graduation gift. I feel bad he probably will miss everything. If we get there in the fall then I will probably keep some of the days anyway. We will drive so we can do some house hunting also.

    We have the no plastic bag law here and if we want them if a store has them it is 10 cents. We all bought our reusable bags, well now stores are telling us that we can't use our reusable bags in the store and have to use their plastic ones at no charge. I am not sure why they didn't give an explanation.

    Sue glad you enjoyed the soup. We love cream soups here, corn chowder is a favorite. Yes everything is put on hold right now, which has gotten me a bit down. It is our dream to live down there and excited to make it happen now. The main problem is Liv is suppose to start school there in August and we need to start establishing residency. Liv may have to do on line a little more. She was anticipating starting on the campus at the new college. I hope you enjoyed the ice cream, I love it from shops. What a great way for them to get through this tough time and you can help support them. I hope you get some nice weather.

    Lynne I hope you avoid the snow and get the warm weather. Boy do I see the freshman 20 coming on already for me!!! I would rather battle that then this virus any day!!! I love bagels and cream cheese, however, I have been on a minimal dairy diet and I can only have gluten free bagels and limited yeast. It is not the same. I am glad that it is working good with everyone home. Yea no pork for us we stopped over a year and a half ago. I do find other substitutes. Enjoy your tea on these cool days.

    Schumi thank you and your right I find myself trying stuff I probably should hold on. I am so nervous to do anything wrong as I don't want to end up in the hospital right now. LOL! I appreciate nurse Carol's advice!! Liv is scared to to talk to her bosses. I understand that. She asked if it is okay if she gives up a couple of her cashier shifts right now to minimize her exposure, I said yes we can figure out how much you actually need. I am not sure how much they appreciate them putting themselves and their families at a higher risk, I hope so. Glad you are just about better. It feels good when you get there. I use to get a wine order from a vineyard in Missouri years ago that we liked. It is a nice delivery to get anytime. Enjoy your walks outside and your family time.

    Cam I hope your DH stays safe at work, it is very scary out there. I don't mind when it is warm out but rain and cold do not mix well. Getting take out and a break from cooking is always nice. You know that your purchase means extra to the place. Sorry to hear about your family and friends losing jobs. Hopefully it will be a quick temporary thing and with the stimulus package it will only be a small hiccup.

    Charade I hope things get easier at work like this. Oh that was a nice idea from the ice cream shop, your sundaes sounded really good. I am glad to see that local shops are finding creative ways. Brian and I have been putting our money into home projects so I understand that. I think when I am feeling better I am going to have to find some stuff to do. I was planning on getting the house ready to move but just don't know yet. Nice flashback pic, I hate when they are wrong.

    Mrose Thanks and yes Brian and I keep going out for rides, (we play pokemon go) so we need to get our fix LOL!! I hope your dogs enjoyed it it's a good idea. Glad that you got to talk with your dad, and find ways to see your family even if it is for distance. I know it is so frustrating to see people not taking this seriously, it makes it hard for us who are. The quicker we all do this the quicker we can get on with our lives safely and healthy. I hope things work out with that transportation issue. That's nice about your youngest's job, target is not going that far but they are trying to find ways. I hope yours has some graduating ceremony. Charlie is sad about his senior year.

    :yay: A speical hello and thoughts to our SANS who can't post I hope everyone is doing good and staying healthy.

    Woot! I will be there that time too Bobbie!

    Very very scary, a person in our office building tested positive. I was not there when that person left sick, but too close for comfort for me. Though when I went in for a few hours, I washed my hands more than a few times, and used paper towels to open the shared microwave, coffee maker, and frigid. It just shows ya, I am good with staying home. And yeah, another person from the township has died. Both were elderly men, but oh so scary times right now.

    Ended up with eggs and waffles, as little one and older one made a Chick-fil-A run later in the afternoon, and I was filled for hours from a milkshake. It was delicious too. Now chilling for the night. Enough excitement for me with that info above. I’d like some happy news, and Bobbie’s helped with the trip info.

    Have a good night all, and please be safe and healthy.

    :cool1::banana:...I am excited to see a few SANS family going the same week. I think there are a couple of more. I am always up for meeting new people. This will be our first time at HHN. I know Brian and Charlie will enjoy it!

    I had to do something to get excited just been feeling blah lately!! Look forward to hearing more about peoples plans!!
    We have been at Universal many times during HHN but never attended until last year and had a blast, we’ll be going at least a couple nights this year!

    Our youngest will be 12 and says he wants to try it this year so if we think something may not be suitable for him we’ll do our best to possibly avoid anything like that, I felt last year there was several things he would have liked.

    bobbie…..it must be hard to watch Liv feel uncomfortable speaking to her bosses. I hope they help.....and glad to see you are continually improving every day......yep, planning some garden time today too, another beautiful day here......although next week the doom and gloom weather is back apparently.....will make the most of this sunshine while we can. And yay for HHN......we arrive September 6th till Oct 1st and will certainly be attending it more than a few nights for sure!!! The kids will love it...….


    Lynne....that is far too close for comfort!!! Yes, I`m glad Kyle is at home right now for two weeks as I have the dreaded couple of symptoms......no temperature thankfully...….stay well and enjoy your home comforts where at least you know everything is clean and only family around.


    Scott......12 is a decent age for HHN. I`m sure your boys will love it......I forget did Mrs DLPN attend HHN too??? I know someone there last year went without their wife/mum.......



    So, another not so good nights sleep...….this cough is relentless, but I don't think it`s the dreaded 19. I think it`s a regular cold, which is weird as I had a bad cough for two weeks in January too after not having a cough or cold for years. I do think I feel better today, just watching my two for any symptoms.

    But, we are maintaining all the rules, Kyle is off work for 14 days and I`m contained till Monday next week, which will be 7 days for me. But, still won`t be going out unless I really have to. Kyle`s work have been really good a shave most employers I believe.

    Groceries have been delivered, driver was superb and called us to say he was about a minute away, would drop the groceries at our door then knock. We then brought it in but managed a brief chat with him. He said the stores are filled with whole families shopping instead of the advisory limited amount of people.

    Now just the wine delivery and I can fill a couple of those empty shelves in our store room!! It`s a big room to fill!!! :rolleyes1

    Lunch is sandwich rolls with honey ham and some with shrimp in a marie rose sauce which is our shrimp cocktail sauce for lunch......dinner is butchers sausages grilled outside. Will make up sliced potato parcels......of course they have to be cooked in butter!!!! It`s a trial........::yes::

    But, have a great Thirsty Thursday..........

    Okay, sunny day in store, and even closer to Friday now. Woo! And even though my high of close to 60 is not that hot to me, I will be thirsty on this Thursday. So fitting, no? Yep, Schumi and I know it’s Thirsty Thursday.

    Oh Schumi, sorry your night was not a good one. Hope you get a very good sleep tonight. And yay, for getting grocery order. in some ways, it is nice to have the family home for days. And with the work, they are deep cleaning, and we cannot return to at least the 1st. Personally, I did not expect us back until the 6th. And yeah, I am so ready for a haircut, been almost 2 weeks now from my missed appointment.

    Hope all stay thirsty, and join Schumi and me drinking a cup of tea, and well, could join her for that lush meals list today.

    Eh, thinking cereal again this morning.
