  1. Hi everyone! It's a balmy 76 degrees here. My sibs and I went to Mom's to help her and our stepdad put up the tree and decorations. It feels almost un-natural to have ceiling fans going in mid-December, even here in the Southeast. I've got a fairly substantial pot roast in the crock pot so guess what I'll be having most of the week for lunch... Time to pay homage to the laundry gods, I hope it's not time for the customary sock sacrifice to the dryer. Have a good evening y'all!

    Good morning! It's been a bit since I have had a chance to check in. NSIME, I'm glad you didn't have to face a frosty morning. Be safe during your travels today. Ted, I am sorry to hear that your father's health is in decline. I hope the ravages of dementia stay at bay for a while. My grandfather had Alzheimer's and I am sorry that you and your family are going through this. Let's see, both of my Christmas trees are up and decorated. I have bows to make for Mom's tree and wreaths that we are putting up tomorrow. Mom is doing well after the knee replacement. She has learned that the Dr. was not being dramatic when he said it could take several months for her to be able to get around like she wants to, and she is not amused. I have spent the past week in the vascular OR and me no likey. There is palpable tension and negativity in the room. The vascular docs have a rep for being nasty and I now have seen it and have been the recipient of it. But I am learning a lot and am still in OR orientation. Still, I hope I get placed in the neuro service as opposed to vascular once orientation is over. Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Sorry to hear that Rose. I hate that you are going through an upheaval, but I hope you come out better and stronger from it. I think the Universe sent me your robotic case, as we had an add on robot today. Have a glass of vino, and enjoy your fur-babies.

    Hello all! It was difficult starting out to work this morning. To quote a movie title geared toward the Gen Xers (when we were young), Reality Bites! But I have a job, and I don't dread it, so I am glad for it. That said, if this little yellow slip of paper with 6 random numbers align themselves just so, and I should find myself $67 million richer, I would quit in a hot minute. It's nice to dream. The tree is up, it's not decorated, but it's up. I am trying to get the Boy to finalize his birthday plans for Saturday. I cannot believe my baby is going to be 17. well I have to shoo a cat out of the lower branches of the Christmas tree. Have a good afternoon and evening

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone has a wonderful day and safe travels! I have so many things for which to be thankful, and I am thankful for meeting so many of you. I wish you all peace and joy for the holiday season, and all the other days too.

    I've got a cat sleeping on one of my legs, another cat on the back of the couch draped over my right shoulder, a 16 year old kiddo curled up at the end of the couch, food in the kitchen, roof over my head, electricity and heat. Yup, pretty darn Thankful!

    They may have been referring to the head gasket. Car breakdowns and repairs suck. I'm sorry.

    Hi Everyone! Last night I watched Charlie Brown while the last of the desserts baked. Then I spoke with my best friend who finally watched Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead. We had been on radio silence until last night so as not to spoil anything. As I was just about to start baking the ham I bought, I looked at it again and realized that it was a FULLY cooked spiral sliced ham and all it needs is warming! Huzzah!!! The turkey is in it's brine bath and will be going in the oven in the morning. Dare I say that it's the last thing I need to cook?? NSIME, I am sorry about your car. I am glad though that you have another vehicle to use right now. I know I am late chiming in, but I do hope everyone had a good day, and and even better tomorrow!!

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?

    the new Adele album-no, CD-no, MP3... whatever- the newest compilation of her recordings. I would like to get it on vinyl though. Records have a certain je ne sais quoi.

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?

    I always picture the Emma Thompson scene in "Love Actually" when I hear the Joni Mitchell version

    I'm having a Hitchhiker IPA from a local brewery. The lemon drop martini sounds good though!
