SUNDAY 3rd May, 2009

  1. g'day everyone aaannndddd ...... welcome to sunday! :d:flowersfo

    no good me posting on the saturday thread since it's already late up/over and it's late afternoon sunday here! :spin: if'n this makes any sense to anyone at all!

    we headed for them thar hills again today. in a different direction this time.
    the autumn leaves are just so beautiful. what intrigued me was the amount of leaves lying everywhere on the ground, yet still so many on the trees.
    stopped off for coffee and food in one of the little cafe's, then drove on further to another quaint hills town where we filled our bellies with more food! ah well, you've got to try out the different goodies now don't you?! :d

    wishing everyone a pleasant and happy sunday and i hope the universe is kind to you today! :icon_hug:

    Morning Grace! Sounds like your Sunday is going very well . . sounds so funny to be speaking of Autumn leaves when were are just now greening up.

    It is pouring rain and 12:55 a.m. - I'm very tired but can't fall asleep so milk and a cookie were in order. Jnette kept all the White Russians and popcorn to herself, greedy girl.

    I love driving around, stopping when the mood strikes, no real plans.

    I'm on call for hospice this weekend - I doubt I'll get any calls as we still only have 2 patients.

    Happy Sunday to you Grace and all who follow too.

    Hi steph, hope you manage to get some sleep soon! Yeah, that greedy Jnette ..... you'd think she could at least send some of those white russians and popcorn via express mail across the sea to lil ol me!!!! Hurrumph!

    I guess it does sound odd to you up/over reading about autumn! lol When y'all were talking about the snow and cold while we were having that dreadful heatwave back in January, that was weird to me! lol I was wishing we could have some of that snow and cold weather here then. If I could, I'd follow the sun! Spend the southern hemisphere summer here, and the northern hamisphere summer up/over! Now, wouldnt that be just wonderful??!!! Then again, it is lovely seeing the autumn colurs etc.

    Enjoy your sunday, hope no call outs!

    Good Morning my Lovelies !

    Hope all who couldn't fall asleep were finally able to do so.

    Grace, when I was growing up, we used to do just as you and dh do.. take drives, and stop off at cafe's and "Gasthouses" to sit outside and have afternoon "tea".. which was afternoon snack. A beer or glass of wine, some good cake or pastry... an afternoon walk exploring. Thanx for the memories!

    Enjoy your autumn leaves. Thanx but no thanx.. I'm more than ready to enjoy spring!

    Well, I'm listening to the birds awakening outside, sipping my first cuppa and will soon get ready to head out to dd to my grandbaby for a couple hours, then back here to set some flowers with dh.. weather permitting. Still quite cloudy out there.. we'll see what it does.

    Hope everyone has a marvelous day !

    good morning dear ones

    up early here and have been enjoying listening to the birds.
    hubby and i have been sitting outside enjoying our first cuppa of the day, watching the humming birds slurp their syrup.

    mild morning here, yesterday we had showers then sun, repeating cycles which is great for our new trees.

    got my master bathroom painted and it looks gorgeous, i am happy with the progresses i am making in the house. so far kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and ensuite all painted, including the trim phew!!

    heading off early today to get my plants for down the front, pick up some art work/ decoration for ensuite bathroom and then come home to relax.

    having a fair amount of belly pain today so i pray it settles so i can enjoy this glorious day.

    hubby is already at the books studying for his exams this week, just hard to imagine he will be finished after wednesday, thank you jesus for getting him through :heartbeat i am so proud of my man :d

    netters have fun with your dear gs, grace your day sounded so nice and relaxing. gosh maybe hubby and i can do that after wednesday eh?

    steph i hope mr sandman caught up with you and you managed some sleep.

    have a god blessed day one and all.

    Hope you feel better Sabby.

    Hi Grace steph jnette zuzi!

    Busy yesterday...class ran late, so I had to go straight to work from school. Work was fine, not too busy.

    Today I'm going to head to the gardens after church; for the first time in nearly a week there are no clouds. Probably won't see my dad, he's away at a baseball game today. Might ride my bike too, given that it's so nice.

    Good morning all. Up early this am and made muffins. I am being over run with rhubarb and the muffins go quickly so a good use for lots of rhubarb.

    Dug a little in the garden this morning. I need to prep to put carrots in. Since they hate stones I will be picking stones and pebbles later. Where I live the stones multiply if they are left covered for any length of time. Seems like once you get them exposed to the sun they have a more difficult time reproducing. Yesterday got some holes dug for squash but need to compost them before I can think about planting.

    Today is the party for the wee laddie. It is really a good excuse to show off the work done by my nephew and his wife in their home. He has reconstructed much of it and it is incredible. I boiled 50 eggs for deviled eggs. Will fill them at their home so I don't have to transport the finished product. People better eat them as I do not plan on their return to my kitchen.

    Hope all are enjoying a peaceful Sunday. On my way to the shower and get ready to go.

    My oldest son Brian is in the ER in So. Cal after getting hit in the face (cheekbone/temple area) with a baseball. Waiting for a CT scan. If you pray - maybe a little prayer?

    Thanks - I'm awaiting another phone call . . the first came at the end of church so we gathered together and prayed.

    I'm praying for you and Brian Steph.
