  1. wakey wakey wakey!!!!! time to rise and shine! up and at 'em!!! welcome to thursday! :flowersfo

    i hope each and everyone who drops by here today enjoys a day filled with good health, happiness and answers to their prayers.

    the sun is setting on my thursday here in the land down under, and for us here it's almost time for tea - (as in evening meal!):d

    i've just returned from a drive to the beach. even though it rained lightly here today, i threw caution to the wind and took a chance. i wandered along the esplanade observing those brave enough to venture into the water, stopped in a nice cafe' for a bite to eat and a coffee while reading my new book, and called in on a friend at her shop for a quick g'day!
    i so enjoy these solo outings, you can meander at your leisure and no-one tells you to hurry up! you can linger browsing for as long as you like! usually in the book stores! :d

    tomorrow i'll be shopping and preparing food for dd's engagement party on saturday night. i'm glad i took some "me" time today! it'll be another busy weekend. busy but pleasant busy!

    sooooo .... are you all up and awake yet???!!! :d

    enjoy your thursday! ..............

    Morning grace, morning Netters.

    I've been a bit quiet in here lately so it's good to get back to the GM thread and say hi.

    Grace your drive to the beach sounds lovely, I love getting time alone but it happens so rarely.

    Hi Netters, not see you for ages hope your well

    It's 1045 in the UK now, the sun is out and I've got washing in the machine so I'll be putting it out later. Other than that I'm having a lazy day today, had to have a little more surgery on my knee last week so I am recovering and keeping my feet up. I've still got clips in and they are itching like crazy so it's taking all my will power not to scratch, or remove them as the hospital gave me a clip remover to give to my practice nurse but that would just be naughty. I've got another 3 days then they can come out.

    I've got my lovely daughter home with me as it's Easter break in the UK, she's looking after me loads and making my lots of cups of tea.

    I'll try to check back in later to say hi

    Have a lovely Thursday

    Hope your knee feels better Sharrie.

    Hi Sabby jnette Grace!

    Got my courage up yesterday and emailed the recruiter I spoke with about the position. Haven't heard anything yet, but I hope to today. Going to be checking email and voicemail frequently...

    Did the writing yesterday, so I have only a little more today, along with a little reading. Going to do shopping and laundry too.

    And going to job search some more, unless they call with an offer. Going to expand my search area too, just in case.

    Good morning!

    Grace, your outing sounds so restful and just what was needed.
    Is the engagement party at your house?
    What are you preparing for it?

    Keeping fingers crossed for ya for a job, Joe!

    Jnette, I hope you get an unexpected pleasant surprise today, and that the day (in spite of being so busy) goes well.

    sharrie, I'd be the same: tempted to take those staples out myself, lol!
    Glad your dd is taking good care of you!

    Sabby, you've already done a day's work at home!!
    Hope your day goes well.

    Last night I developed a cold, so I'm going to stay home today.
    I just HAD one, about a month ago, why did I get another one??????
    Oh well, doesn't help to try to figure it out.
    As soon as I take youngest to school, I'm going back to bed.

    Y'all have a good one!

    I'm awake - barely! Didn't fall asleep until about 3 a.m. due to that Diet Pepsi I drank on the way home from school last night.

    Good morning from sunny California

    Dianah - sorry you got another cold! My throat was a tiny bit sore this morning but it is gone now after drinking some coffee. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Gotta go . . . my oldest son is calling me!

    Thanks! My son was ordering coffee (3 creams, 2 sugars) and a cinnamon roll from McDonald's while talking to me with his "hands free" phone. I said "That doesn't sound very healthy". He said "well, mom I'm in a hurry".

    That's a good excuse.

    I've had two cups of coffee . . .better get my day started. It is cold in this house and I need to start a fire, put the big dogs outside (Jack the Lab and Tito the Boxer), get the puppy out of her crate and figure out a fun thing to do with my youngest!

    Sooooo .... are you all up and awake yet???!!!
    Up and sort of at 'em! Got lots to do, and working the next 4 nights. Tired! I have been taking on too much lately and not giving myself time to breathe. So that is my plan for the next two weeks, just work, church, and breathing. Ahhh...

    Nice fresh air out there and beautiful blue skies and sunshine, although a cold breeze. Brr... got the sliding glass door open anyway to let all the winter cooties out lol..

    hi di .... party is being held at dd's house. we're having "finger" foods. hot savouries, savoury platters with cheeses, olives and various meats such as salami's, cabana's etc. veggie/dips, cocktail sandwiches, the engagement cake for dessert with fruit kebabs.

    sorry you've caught another cold! sending healing restorative vibes up/over!

    greetings all ... it's friday!

    insomnia, sleeplessness, inability to sleep, etc ... must be global at present! i'm not sleeping too restfully either! i drop off ever so easily in front of the tv!:d
    how come once actually in bed, the sleep eludes us????

    we have grey skies again today, received a moderate amount of rain last night which is most welcome.

    must dash for now!
    have a good day/night/afternoon/whichever it is for you!
