    Good morning, Thanks for the holiday wishes. Have car packed with the food and hoping to leave by 8am. Did the dinner prep when I got home last eve…..a very simple version of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Just a stuffed turkey breast rather than a whole turkey. Only 3 of us for dinner and I do not eat poultry so turkey breast is more…[Read more]

    ERICA, Thank you for sharing a bit of your Mum with us today. The paintings are lovely.
    She was obviously a very special person.

    ANGELA, It is very hard to lose a close friend and you have lost 2 in a short time.
    I still have thoughts of a close friend that passed 20 years ago. It does get easier but never really goes away. Hope you will find some measure of peace and acceptance and will fully enjoy the holidays ahead. Beautiful Bea will help you with that and with the…[Read more]

      • Angela, I am glad you did write about your friends here. Thank you for sharing the names of your friends. I think it is a way we can all share your love and respect for them.

      • Don’t worry ANGELA, it’s good to write about your emotions, and I see now that one of your friends was very young. Jxx

    LORNA, Beautiful morning photo. Thanks. Hope your rain is over.

    • Lorna replied 1 year ago

      It is for now LINDA. Still dry and a little sunshine at the moment.

  • Linda, USA posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    MARION. We have a saying over here….If you want something done, give it to a busy
    person. This seems to describe you well. Thanks for all you do.

  • Linda, USA posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    MARION, This was very interesting. I remember that the first day we saw the video, you mentioned that it was too bad they used an African Hedgehog. I wondered how you knew that. Ha, guess there are obvious differences. Now this will give everyone a
    chance to think about them and maybe, just maybe, John Lewis is embarrassed. Hmm.

    Wonder how long it will take him to get to the core! Cute photo.

    I would love to take a walk there….right now!

    • Lorna replied 1 year ago

      I`d join you LINDA, and not act me age, by scuffling/kicking through the dry fallen leaves. One of the things I love about Autumn, it so reminds me of my younger childhood days. My brood sometimes thinks I am still back there, but the younger Grandchildren love to see me doing it and join in.

    Love your robins. He certainly has a mouthful! I always wonder how birds can swallow such a mouthful but they always do.

    ERICA, This photo is beautiful. The colors are outstanding.

    Good morning (well it’s morning here), Cold, blustery, snow/ice here and I
    had to dig out my shoe grippers. We dropped from a wonderful, sunny, 72F
    to 28F in less than 24hrs.

    I have already been out to chip the ice of bird bath/feral water dish and to feed
    all outdoors. I have electric feeding dishes and water bowls but must dig them
    out…[Read more]

    • Wet and windy here but not as wild as in some places in the UK. Glad you’ve done the prep for the candy. Look out cherries!

    • Crickey Linda – that is a massive drop in temperature.

    • Lorna replied 1 year ago

      LINDA, ouch, that is a drop in temperature, goodness me.
      We down here, had a months rainfall in 2 and half days, and it isnt finished yet. Tomorrow should be a bit better, but the run off water will still be a problem until all the streams and rivers have eased everything through.
      Any chance of seeing a photo of the finished Candies ?

    FIONA, Such sad news that your Father and Bob’s Father passed within
    and hour of each other. How difficult this must be for Eilidh and Conall.
    Yes, it is good they have each other.
    You are all in my prayers and that you will have the strength to see this through and find peace and comfort from all those who care.

    Arrived home late last eve, exhausted and “sticky”. Hot shower and to bed.
    I read on Facebook this morning that Fiona McGlashan’s Father died. I believe
    that it was yesterday. Just skimmed the posts here and didn’t see it mentioned.
    Fiona@fionamcg, I am so sorry. From the Facebook comments, he was a very special,
    much loved man. My thoughts…[Read more]

      LINDA, thank you for the news of FIONA`s Dad`s passing. It wasnt posted here, only that Bobs Dad isnt well. I knew about her Dad, and as she hadnt posted about how poorly he was here, I never posted the information. They had their hands full as it was.
      FIONA, our thoughts and prayers are with you and Bob and the children. Big (((HUGS)) for all of you.

    • Thanks for letting us know about FIONA’s Dad, so sorry.

      Hope you got rid of all that stickiness! Its far from sticky here, temp. down to -2c last night, frost on the garden. Am still suffering with the ‘bug’ both of us are, it’s at the thick horrible stage now so not sleeping very well. Maurice is on Amoxicillin, I will be asking for some soon…[Read more]

    We have not had the problem here but understand that under the cover of the deep snow, they tunnel out into the middle of lawns and golf courses. They retreat when the snow melts. One of the 4 kinds of voles is the Meadow
    Vole and they supposedly cause damage to trees in orchards etc.

    I can go you one better. Trump has said that he found the Electoral College to be undemocratic, then someone pointed out to him that he would have lost the election if not for the Electoral College!!
    I despair! For those who do not understand our elections, we do not have a Pure Democracy but
    a Representative Democracy. Without it, the east…[Read more]

    and there’s my cute little guy. Also loved the tiny babies yesterday. Thanks

    • I was also thinking after your senior moment the other day (see, I’ve pointed it out to the world as you said I should) that after looking up voles in PA you wouldn’t like them digging up your lawn. They don’t do that, here at least. They are very inoffensive creatures. Of course you might have badly-behaved voles over there!
