Happy Saturday Sept 15th

  1. Happy Saturday! I haven’t been around the past couple of days. Besides working I’ve had a lot on my mind and going to sleep early. So glad it’s Saturday.

    We have the hospital picnic to go to tomorrow and the temp is supposed to be dry, sunny and 78 degrees. Unbelievable!


    I want to share some of the incredible photo’s of Alaska without posting scads at one time so I’ll share 1 or 2 at a time.
    The John Hopkins Glacier is in the Glacier National Park. The ship had to travel 5 miles in from the inside passage to get there. It was an all day trip back and forth for those 10 miles because of the ice, whales, seals, sea lions, etc…All of the glacier back in this area are named after colleges. Who knows why? I did learn a lot of very interesting things about our 49th state. Some pretty awesome.



    The Northern Lights are incredible. During the land portion of the trip we stayed in mountain lodges and you could ask to be woken up if and when the Northern Lights were at their best.

    Good morning! :kiss

    I've gotta go to bed soon, as I am to report to work for a 16 hour shift in about 7 hours from now.

    Take care. I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!

    Had a great day today, spent the afternoon with a friend from church, she made me lunch, we went for a 3 mile walk in BEAUTIFUL weather! and visited some more... then I got a ton of laundry done. Well it wasn't in the DOING but in the "done" part of it, lol...

    Hope you all have a beautiful day/night tonight/tomorrow!


    From Dianah, yesterday:

    As I mentioned earlier, I took one of our cats to the vet.... now in kitty ICU, being hydrated for acute renal failure....
    Scar looked brighter this afternoon, after 400ml LR (he is 9#).
    Tomorrow's labs will tell us if we should continue aggressive treatment or euthanize him.
    Dianah, so sorry for this... this seems to be happening more and more to our kitties and dogs! what is up with that??? Makes you think that we should start monitoring their labs routinely before they get out of hand? Is it the food? My goodness... so sad...

    Dutch, I ABSOLUTELY REQUIRE you post AT LEAST two photos a day (more, if possible)!
    They're all GORGEOUS!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    Hello Commuter!

    Zoe, thank you for the kind words and good wishes for Scar. We hope for the best.

    Everyone have a good day/noc/evening!

    Well...how VERY blessed I am to be able to post on tomorrow's thread already BEFORE I signed off for tonight!

    Hi Dutchgirl....I lived in Alaska before, and loved the scenery. We went over on a "noncruise boat"...no tv, no radio, no buffets to dine from, no entertainment...no REAL entertainment that is...compliments of the U.S. Government as we went over on military orders. Beautiful state! Glad you had a great time there!

    Dianah...Praying for your kitty cat. I know the pain of euthanizing a pet, so if you have to do that, it's humane to keep the kitty from further suffering and pain. My heartfelt prayer is with you all.

    Hi Commuter...have a great workday tomorrow. Doesn't sound like you have taken our previous advice to "slooooowwww down" any.

    Hi ZOE! - Wish I could have been on that luncheon and walk with you and your church friend today. Miss times like that with friends. :icon_hug:

    Hello to all who come afterwards. Love ya lots, and goodnight all.:flowersfo

    Ha! That kid is so cute. To post a YouTube video:

    [ youtube ] YouTube code (located after the "=" sign; the code for this video is aPwrSiHyRKE) [ /youtube ]

    Just remove the spaces and put in the code. It should work.



    I'm busy setting up my new sewing machine. It's going surprisingly well so far. We'll see how pleased I am with it once I actually try to sew something.

    Have a good day! :spin:

    Zoe, LOVED the link/video!! That would lift anyone's spirits!!

    Zooz, I like to sew, just haven't done it in awhile.
    What do you like to sew?
    Or do you quilt??

    Cheer, good to see you!
    Wishing you the best, as always.

    You would enjoy this friend of mine She is the sweetest! and we connected the first time we met - uncanny how much we have in common ...

    I was teasing her today, a couple times she mentioned such and such a person and I would gasp, touch her arm, and say, "You're KIDDING! I was MARRIED to such-and-such!" Had a good laugh She is a great support to me and v/v!

    I bought a used sewing machine from work (Salvation Army store) the beginning of the summer and have used it once (to do a hem). I like to make Christmas crafts and want to do some alterations on clothes (x-large size assumes women are 6' tall and I am NOT!) - would also like to make some clothes of my own - just chicken I guess!

    As to the link, let me check it out...

    Zoe: we vertically-challenged persons do learn early how to hem pants and dress/skirt things.

    Hi, dianah.

    I've made only one quilt so far and have found I generally don't have the patience for all that pinning and piecing.

    I used to sew quick little projects. (Pincushions, make up cases, bags, etc.) I was thinking about expanding my local jewelry business to include a few sewn crafts. We'll see how it goes.

    I definitely need to work on my technique. I haven't seriously operated a sewing machine in years. I doubt I can even sew a straight line now...

    Zoe - I've yet to make any clothes. It would be an interesting project, though. And I, for one, hate hemming. I usually just let my pant legs drag until pressure and friction does the hemming for me.

    Oh, LEARNED is true - but DO? I wear dresses/skirts for church, weddings, and funerals - and either wear them very long or hitch my skirts up to my ribcage (with shirt untucked). Lazy lazy ...

    I'm sure you'll think of things to sew, and your confidence and skills will expand.

    I used to enjoy sewing costumes for the kids, at Halloween and for other programs (school, church . . .).

    Teen boys kinda don't need costumes anymore.

    Have fun with it! Let us know what you sew!

    I made a prom dress in HS - the bodice significantly lower than my tan line (blush) - and also way too small.

    A pair of overalls (in HS home ec) made with this wild material NO ONE in their right mind would wear...

    A bandeau bikini - again, HS. The top was a rectangle that twisted in the middle, forming two triangles, w/ the straps running thru the sides of the rectangle and tying up in some fashion as to be beside the point when I came out of the water after diving in...

    Needless to say it has not been safe to go into the "water" (with sewing) since.

    As to the pant legs, I have two pair of jeans, one green, one blue, that I have allowed to grow "fringe" on the bottom. I love them
