Hello my friend!

Have really missed you.  You have been on my heart.  Read thru the health updates.  Fever down, that is good.  You mentioned test is 67% correct.....is this the 2 day up the nose one or the rapid result one?  Those are the 2 that are available I have heard of.  A lot more being tested and many more I know or know of with a positive result.  You know best.  Just want you well!,

So Ms. Pyro burned all day after tribe of 2 today.  So glorious today and new friend did so much pruning for me...Had mountains of brush which was all done today.  Too Windy the day he was here.  No, I did not feed him.  Offered but he declined.  Oh well sent some pretty fab tortilla soup home with him the other day so not totally rude.  Lol

Ya know Riley may have come out of the haze to someone else.  I just can’t get that vision out of my mind.  Oh no sweet Max is going back to his mama.  A blessing to have the precious boy for a season tho.  So you are in the spare room/pet room/ soothing color. Like a Zen blue green? All that sounds perfect by me. I like the sound of the blue with the piano and mermaid.  Is she a China figurine?  Where did you get her?  I have a few friends that like them.  I do too just no place really.  Maybe if I have my dream swim spa room I would set up a clandestine corner with grey river rock, something green and splash of ethereal  lighting on the wall.  Yeah, I like it.  Lol

oh your Pink Floyd date...too funny.  And absolutely YES an excellent save for not being on FB!!  Especially now!  Stir the pot of witches brew.  If they only knew how their rantings  put the spell on themselves.  You crack me up.

Power tools are a turn on period.  A is not a flannel shirt guy really.  Went from literally pounding stakes in the railroad tracks to corner office after years.  Retired now but still does stuff himself...like climbing that tree with the chainsaw. Has a yuppie side and a hard worker side.  Interesting combo.  He cut it, I hauled it.  Then I went nuts with new pole saw.

Precious sweet Hugo nursing on the towel wrapped wrist.  That is sweet when you just let them do it!,!  I am glad he is a comfort and lulls you to sleep. I do the tummy rubbing with Jackson, my boy

Thanks for health updates....Now what is this juice cleanse thing.  I want to know do you just drink one and eat normal??  I am actually starting to sleep much more normal than before but am curious.  Guess will pm Eve.

Take good care of you, Lore, for us.  We are here for you sweetest!!!

Not sure how to describe Mermaid, so here is a pic. This is actually the “old” blue and it is back to the one I’ve used for years which is less muddy appearing and to me, makes a huge difference overall. Not sure why I let the guy at Benjamin Moore talk me into this one here, but it lasted 2 months and I went nearly insane. Spent well into the very wee hours one morning getting rid of it! But the only pictures I have with the “new” blue have Daughter in them and she doesn’t belong on the internet. Not by me...which brings me back to FB and all these folks who post pics of their kids! Not my style. More on power tools later! Hugs and thanks for the happy thoughts. Even better now after 2 hour nap! joy

Love the room!!  Adorable flying Mermaid!  Have never seen one like that.  Soooooo cute.  Nice view of your flowers too.  That blue is cool...turquoise.....Love.  There is such a huge difference in blues, I hear ya.  This one took you to insanity?  Colors Definitely activate different emotions in different people.  I did my study in a what I thought would be a real cool zen green.....hated it so BAD. made the guy immediately change it to what I had in the majority of the house.  I am better staying in the neutrals 

Just wined to Eve about all my weight loss GONE that I lost in 3-19.  There ya go 2 months no swimming and eating whatever plus the COVID gain of course.   Bloodwork done this AM.  Maybe some numbers will improve since the smoke quit. Grrrrrrrrr.  Little consolation. Well probably better to add a few years to my life.  I know what to do, just have to do it. 

So you are home today recovering still?  You treat yourself will tender loving care, you hear?.  Hugs to ya!!

I knew you’d love them! There are ones that made me think of each of my Girlz. I wanted so so badly to just get them for you, but thought oh, so, then what? Send a picture? Haha. So I’d did do that at least. I did get the girl cutting the heads off paper dolls ones for me. Daughter says they are perfect! Lol. Will be wearing those to work tomorrow. Wore these blue ones with a bit of floral design the last day I worked that say “I’m a delicate effing flower”, but it actually spells it out. Seems it is fine to wear to work, but not write that word here, haha! joy I get and respect that though. My scrub pants cover that part, except when I’m sitting in the work room charting and then my colleagues see it. Is to the point when I go in that I’m asked “what do your socks say today?” Yeah...clinic sock monkey joy. Whatever...I’ll be their Huckleberry. 
Hope you girlz are well. I’m all better. Had that first day of fever, then not really fever next day, just around 100, which was back to normal by the time I went to bed the second night and never got even the tiniest other symptoms of anything, so am not that worried about it! 
Daughter had all 4 wisdom teeth out today, so I’m definitely feeling better than her, poor sweetie. My sweet little Crow, she is. Oh, it is one of my pet names for her as she really likes “shiny things”. 
Ok...seems Jaka’s friend Nika is a Comrade Kombucha maker! Woohoo! Maybe I best send her a PM if we are gonna do too much Booch talk. 
Peggy...how are those power tools working out for ya??? joy

Oh, Tiny...if you can’t find them I would happy to send to you! If that’s too strange, then you can call Powell’s Books in PDX. They ship everywhere.

Well, today's a pooper. I love mr. Rogers, as you all well know, so it stands to reason that I love king Friday XIII. Today is his birthday, so today is a good day. Until....bum bum bum....I woke up this morning and it was 63 degrees in my house. I like it cold, but my husband does not, so it was odd. So I asked my husband to go to the basement to take a peek and he said the pilot light was lit and there was no gas smell. We went through the how to on the manual and could not get it to blow heat. So the ride comes, calls another dude who calls another dude and they have decided. It is dead. I won't go into all the dumb details but my furnace has died. I can't even sort of run it because of the whole carbon monoxide gig. So it's cold today. The current temperature is 32. I know it doesn't sound that bad but when you are in a old house with no carpet there is a chill. And tomorrow's high is 36. At least we have power. So I'm in bed, snuggled in and have a space heater running, and the dogs have their winter coats at the ready. Then, we get an email from the doggy dermatologist. We have to keep up with the weekly prescription shampooing, the pills, the drops and some supplements. Don't forget one of the supplements causes diarrheah. This adds to the fact that I found out yesterday that I have the beginnings of tardive. Think of it as medication induced tics. Shucks. Somebody say something. Starfish.

I agree, but I do admit I seriously considered it several times today.
