Happy November! $50 Your Way Giveaway!!

Happy November little Peanuts!!

October flew by!!  The carpet and flooring is done. The DOG got renamed because she resembles a is cute like a little teddy BEAR.   Little did I say little? This puppy is growing by leaps and bounds!

Right now Bear is only 13 weeks old! She’s gonna be huge!

My daughter Selena did Alice’s makeup for Halloween and I have to brag……how CUTE is this kid?!?!?!

The house is coming along nicely. Except the kitchen. NOT thrilled with the kitchen contractor through Home Depot. Shoddy work all the way around. From cracks in the new cabinets to off center window. To drawers that don’t line up. Cupboards don’t close. I am NOT a happy Peanut here!! I can’t believe we paid as much as we did for such crappy workmanship. So, the kitchen from hell is still not done!! Not only is the window not centered but the top cabinets are double, double, single. Really?!
Home Depot contractor sucks

There are about a million other pictures I could share but that just puts me in a bad mood. A really bad mood. Oh yeah, and we haven’t seen the contractor in about 6 weeks. Ohhhhhhh yeah…. I am thrilled with Home Depot!

Craft room is coming along nicely. Except of course the cupboards which again ….. poor workmanship from the Home Depot contractor. I mean CRAPPY job!!

On the upside, the counters are in and are fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!! I promise to share pictures if the kitchen ever gets done and if the craft room ever gets unpacked! I swear for every box I unpack 6 more take it’s place!! Have I whined about moving lately!? Nooo???  Well, I HATE MOVING!!!!!!!!!! I am NEVER. Ever. Doing. It. Again!! E-V-E-R!!

Okay, whine over. Concentrate on cute puppy and cuter kid!! Right?!?!  I hope you had a wonderful October. I hope November is amazing for you!!

Maybe just two more pictures…………..

  2. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Another month gone by … Happy November Peanuts & Whiners alike!

  3. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I managed to fix the leak in the attic (yay, me!). Now I have to do something about the small stain left on Mum’s bedroom ceiling but that might have to wait a while as I’ve other DIY projects on The List to be sorted first.

  4. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I can’t believe it is already November! My fiance’s birthday is today so I am going to make him a nice dinner tonight.

  5. The older I get the faster time goes!

  6. Tamra Phelps says:

    I feel like I’ve sort of lost a year. I mean, I was unconscious in February, lol…and since then I’ve just been trying to get back to normal. I won’t know what to do with my days when I don’t need physical therapy.

  7. Tamra Phelps says:

    Here’s my home page comment: Alice looks super cute in her costume. You should’ve dressed as Dorothy and let Bear be Toto…cause she will never again be small enough to be Toto, lolol.

  8. Kim Pincombe-Cole says:

    Having a good day ~despite the cold, rainy, windy weather in Indianapolis today. Hello November!

  9. We lost power last night for 2 hours. Still don’t know what caused it. No storms, maybe a ghost?

  10. Michele Soyer says:

    Great costume.. she looks so cute.. well here we come Thanksgiving….

  11. shelly peterson says:

    Today was ok. My daughters car isn’t working so I am playing taxi so I was up earlier than I wanted.

  12. My day went just fine. We are enjoying the cooler weather and love the colorful leaves.

  13. Mendy Dinsmore says:

    My day was long and boring. I did laundry and vacuumed. It was drizzling all day.

  14. My day is really early right now, because I woke up at midnight to wish my granddaughter a Happy Birthday! She is 13 years old today and we are so proud of her! She is pretty, smart, and has a very kind heart ♥️ Later is yummy cake and ice cream! We have truly been blessed by our Heavenly Father!! Thank you 🙏🏼

  15. Can’t believe it’s November already! It’s my birthday month and I just feel like this year flew by. Looking forward to my own personal new year… 🙂

  16. Michele Soyer says:

    Have discovered watching mass on utube.. thank you Kate for the podcast idea which turned into utube idea…..severe weather alert for today so hurry hurry do outside chores then housework….

  17. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Glad to help Michele! Let’s see, that’s DIY, religion … wonder what’s next!

    As for me, a frosty start to the day but beginning to warm up a bit. I’m back in my fingerless gloves otherwise I lose circulation in my fingers and I twisted my dodgy knee yesterday so that’s bandaged up, oh, and I’ve a headache, sinusitis, earache, backache … sometimes I wonder why I bother getting up at all!

  18. shelly dixon says:

    My day has been pretty busy!

  19. Connie Gruning says:

    This is a test ……. only a test….. had this been a real comment there would be a point. There isn’t….. so……. a test.
    Okay, Kate try again!

  20. Connie Gruning says:

    Thank you Kate for letting me know we can’t reply to each other. I am trying to fix the glitch!

  21. Tamra Phelps says:

    Today, we started working on standing and pivoting, by which they mean turn yourself around. I feel like I’m being trained to do the Hokey Pokey. Anybody else remember that kids’ song and dance??

  22. Good swim class. We did not do the Hokey Pokey today, but have in the past.

  23. shelly peterson says:

    Not a bad day. It was decent Fall day today.

  24. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I cannot believe how fast time has gone by. It is already November and almost time to start my holiday baking.

  25. Michele Soyer says:

    Sunny thank goodness… laundry.. bathe Miss Phoebe.. then who knows what??

  26. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Gales and rain here in Ireland and I’ve got to go out for the weekend papers but I just LOVE this kind of weather! It doesn’t matter what I look like or what I’m wearing just as long as I’m cosy …. sorry, the cat was yowling to come in out of the wet but he brought a mouse in with him, poor little thing. A bit of a scuffle but the mouse is now in cheese heaven and the cat is of course delighted with himself. And now Mum’s lost a hearing aid … See, this is why I get nothing done.

  27. Tamra Phelps says:

    I actually woke up about 5 this morning, feeling a lot of pain in my stomach. Threw up soon after. So, now my gut issues are not just soon after eating, I guess. Well, they moved my appt. to see the doctor to Monday. Hopefully, he’ll have some answers.

  28. Quiet day at home. I dropped off 2 ballots yesterday for other people. Mine was dropped off last week. I do like Colorado’s voting system of mail in ballots (or drop off).

  29. I got some work done today. Then I enjoyed the rest of my afternoon. My life is simple and uncomplicated. I am grateful for no drama. 🙂

  30. Day is going good. I just turned back the clocks so now I have an extra hour – whoppee!

  31. Well it’s nighttime now and I’m exhausted because we’ve had six kids here all weekend! But even though I don’t like the hour change, I do get one more hour of relaxation. The jokes on them 🤪

  32. shelly peterson says:

    Today was a good relaxing day. Happy weekend!

  33. Michele Soyer says:

    I do love Sunday…..have no idea other then watering my garden what I will get into today…it will have nothing to do with work though.. happy day all….

  34. Day is going good! Have things hoppin’ with the extra hour, getting things done early, so I”m getting ready to go out pretty soon.

  35. Kate Sarsfield says:

    It’s one of those very quiet days: no wind, mist coming in, no cattle, sheep or horses uttering a sound. Even the rooster from over the valley is quiet. Hang on, I haven’t seen any people either. Am I in some sort of a time slip? Is there anyone out there (asking for a friend!)?

  36. LOL at Kate’s post… 😉 Today is Sunday and I have done nothing… I love Sundays…..

  37. Margaret Smith says:

    Been a busy day. Hubby and I spent the day making muffins and chili. Great fall day for doing some baking and cooking.

  38. Fun afternoon singing. Got an extra hour of sleep today.

  39. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    My day has been better today. My granddaughter’s cold seems to have improved and she is sleeping better.

  40. Tamra Phelps says:

    Well, tomorrow is the dr.’s appt. to see if he found anything during the EGD. I don’t know whether to hope he did or didn’t. I want to know what’s going on but I don’t want it to be serious, you know??

  41. I got an extra hour of sleep, went to church, came home ate, the sun was out so went outside to do a little yard work. Had a very nice day.

  42. Debbie Erickson says:

    My day was great! Had a girls day with my two year old granddaughter and my youngest daughter.

  43. Kelly Kimmell says:

    It is still early, getting used to the time change. So far, so good.

  44. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Typical November out there: overcast sky and a ‘soft’ rain falling but it means that it’s perfect for pulling up the weeds so that’s the plan of action for today.

  45. Michele Soyer says:

    Up and out early.. going into the village to do some errands and a bit of shopping.. sheep and dogs must eat!

  46. So far, so good. I’m meeting friends for lunch, so I’m looking forward to that.

  47. Ann Fantom says:

    My day is going OK for a rainy Monday

  48. Lisa Bourlier says:

    Not loving this cold weather and not feeling well today, hopefully better tomorrow!

  49. Debra Guillen says:

    My day is going good. My son stopped by to visit with me and that always makes my day.

  50. David Hollingsworth says:

    Today was a rather boring day as usual.

  51. Day is going good, winding out now. Have a new neighbor, she is elderly, and ….quiet! Yea! there have been party animals, druggies, scary mean, before.

  52. not too good, sore from raking the leaves, 8 carts full!

  53. This stinks about Home Depot. I hope you will be able to get some redress. If you put a little bit of curtain somehow on the window, maybe it won’t be noticeable, but still should get some refund, and/or they will pay for a contractor (not the same one) to fix what the first one didn’t do right. SOOO sorry this happened to you, you don’t deserve it.

  54. I have been concerned about my granddaughter who has a toothache. So she needs prayers 🙏🏼

  55. shelly peterson says:

    Today was ok. Just another day of dia;ysis.

  56. Good swim class. Then I treated myself to Endless Shrimp at Red Lobster with a gift card.

  57. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I liked today more than yesterday because the sun came out and it felt great for a while. I also had a good physical therapy session.

  58. Went out shopping today. Traffic was awful…. But besides that it was a good day…. 🙂

  59. Tamra Phelps says:

    Well, after months of being sick, I finally found out the issue with my gut. I have a hernia. Tomorrow, my family doctor is supposed to come discuss it with me.

  60. shelly peterson says:

    Its a cold night and I am tired and ready for bed.

  61. Laurie Nykaza says:

    Moving boxes back in after redoing our bathroom they now have to be put away not looking forward to it.

  62. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I only had to get up twice last night so did manage a bit more sleep than usual. Rotten weather here so won’t be doing anything in the garden. Choir tonight so rehearsing – check out Billy Joel’s ‘And So It Goes’ on YouTube for one of our numbers. Hope we do him justice!

  63. Michele Soyer says:

    Today is the Indian Festival of Lights…Divali…..this evening celebrants will light all the deyas and it will be so pretty….so Shug Divali we are all of one world and should enjoy everyones celebrations…. just saying……

  64. Day is going good. Went to vote and do a couple of errands. Rainy today. Sold a pair of winter boots from a local FB group, she came and picked them up today. The ones I kept are old, but I couldn’t sell them, as they aren’t good enough for anyone to buy, at least they are worn in.

  65. Tamra Phelps says:

    Today, the doctor’s assistant told me she had no idea who that nurse had a conversation about yesterday but it wasn’t me. The nurse said she had gotten a ‘verbal report’ on my tests and I had a hernia. I don’t. Well, I hope whoever does have a hernia has gotten the news! Meanwhile, my wait goes on. Results not in yet.

  66. Quiet day at home. Watching the voting results as they come in. I voted last week.

  67. Today I worked outside and now I am a bit tired…. Gonna take it easier tomorrow…

  68. Barbara Montag says:

    Today was a high stress day but it all worked out.
    thank you

  69. shelly peterson says:

    today was a good day. Stayed and home for the most of it but went to lunch with my son.

  70. Michele Soyer says:

    Trying to get moving early once again….have to clean out one of the grow beds and transplant some orange trees that I grafted….then if there is still some umpf left in me starting to chlorine some of the concrete that has algae on it…make it nice and white….

  71. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Panic stations at 10am – my niece missed the 7am bus so had to be driven up to Dublin for College which meant no-one would be there to take in her online grocery delivery. Kate to the rescue & panic sorted. I had all the chores done by lunchtime so am going for a nap before heading out for a committee meeting later.

    This little corner of the world thanks you for voting yesterday!

  72. Cheryl Chervitz says:

    I’m having a good day. Got my cleaning done and now I can relax with the pups!

  73. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I am glad that it is not raining all day today. I want to enjoy the weather before it becomes too cold.

  74. Day is going good. Getting some things ready to send to thredup, nice and sunny so it makes it easy to inspect. I know they don’t pay much, but most sites you do the work and sending out, and that would be hard for me to do. Tried a new casserole recipe, came out pretty goo.

  75. Good swim class. Then trip to the library to pick up 2 holds, but one was already gone.

  76. Good day! Been working on our living room. Cleaning it up and getting it ready for the holiday season. I am not finished yet I hope to complete it by the end of the week. We put the tree up on Black Friday which will be here before you know it…

  77. shelly peterson says:

    I am tired today as usual. I hope get to bed at a descent time tonight.

  78. Michele Soyer says:

    Today is a cookie baking day.. the tins are empty.. no no no fill them up…. pumpkin chocolate chip …. oatmeal cranberry…..gingerbread

  79. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Not a whole lot to report: housework, pay bills, cook, blah, blah but I’m heading up to Dublin soon to collect my niece as it’s a late finish for her & if she bussed it she wouldn’t get home till almost 9pm. It breaks my week nicely & gives me a couple of hours of much-needed solitude. There’s only so much human interaction I can take 😉

  80. Nice and sunny today, fixing things for thredup and in the bright light you can really see if there is anything to do to an item. Found out my new neighbor at the complex had owned a fancy restaurant and a million dollar home with gorgeous kitchen all copper pots hanging, etc. at one time, then the restaurant ran into financial trouble and closed, then her husband died, now she is poor and renting a crappy condo near me. I want to invite her for tea, but a little nervous since she is so savvy about quality, I have to figure out what I feel OK about baking – I’m thinking scones and a holiday tea, not sure what, no ideas yet.

  81. Quiet day at home. Getting ready to go Steve sitting for 8 days on Saturday.

  82. I am trying to declutter… I have stuff that no longer serves me and it has to go. I do not hoard per se, but I am always afraid I am gonna throw something away that I should have kept because I ended up really needing it…. lol. And that’s happened to me a couple of times…. LOL! But I need space so it’s time to clean out and let go. 🙂

  83. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I did a lpot of exercise today. I hope it will help my knees feel better.

  84. shelly peterson says:

    I ran a few errands and had some appointments today.

  85. Shannon Mitchell says:

    It snowed here today, It’s pretty but I hate the cold. It’s way to early for snow around here.

  86. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I was up early to collect a theatre ticket from a friend who can’t use it. It’s for a musical in a nearby town and one of my all-time favourites, My Fair Lady. She got it cheap as she’s on the committee and it’s VIP (!) for the last night then party afterwards. A chance to glad-rag it up!

  87. Day is going OK, Went to town and came back in time for big storm starting. I went to pay my fee and saw the maintenance man I thought gotten let go for being arrested larceny & physical violence. The management is shady and he does unlicensed work, so either they let him come back or he is doing work under the table for them, things that require a license like HVAC, etc. that he does wrong, too! I’ve tried to complain to the town but they wouldn’t do anything to stop the work done without proper permits and no license, also now no insurance. I keep chipping away at getting things done, hope to move next year.

  88. Today was good…. I did some work but I also got my hair done and had some me time. I clean up well if I try…. lol.

  89. And today’s word is SNOW! We’re getting that storm on Sunday.

  90. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    Today started out poorly , but it improved. AT night I felt much better.

  91. shelly peterson says:

    Today is a long day. I am tired. We got our first snow today.

  92. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Well, no snow in Ireland but plenty of very wet gales. I’m dashing in-between downpours to get the weekend papers, grocery shopping and being a general dogsbody so that everything’s done & put away before Ireland v Argentina (rugby) then Strictly Come Dancing & homemade veggie pizza with a wholemeal base! Stay safe & look after each other xxx

  93. Michele Soyer says:

    Missed yesterday baking for a birthday…..special decorated cake…..today it was delivered and very much appreciated…made my day…..worked in the garden all morning on this sunny day.. now resting and getting to watch my favorite boys the Winchester Brothers on Supernatural……

  94. Day is going good. Snowed today, first time this year, no real accumulation. Did some cooking and now doing the dishes, etc. So far quiet day!

  95. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I saw how sunny the weather was this morning and I was happy. Then I went out and the wind was over 20 miles an hour with 50 mile gusts and the temperature stayed in the 30’s.

  96. Today was a beautiful day! Sunshine and blue skies and I got a lot done. 🙂

  97. Tamra Phelps says:

    One of the troublemakers here has been rolling up and down the hallways generally having a fit, cussing people, trying to push his way into women’s rooms. Well, he used to be a guard at a women’s prison and I think he believes we are all prisoners, lol. Unfortunately, he can get physically violent, so I’m afraid the day is coming when he’ll be put in the part of the building where they can’t roam the whole building. Never a dull moment here.

  98. Started Steve sitting today. Will be here for 10 days. Slow internet connection.

  99. shelly peterson says:

    I had a very relaxing day today. I did run some errands though.

  100. Michele Soyer says:

    Glorious Sunday….slept in a bit now doing laundry and making breakfast as soon as I hang it out…. thats it for me today…..make lunch and relax with a cranberry cocktail later on this afternoon…..

  101. We are just now getting up to start the day and so far, everything is good. Hopefully, all goes well the rest of the day!

  102. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Rain, hailstones, rain, wind, rain more hail … doesn’t stop me from going out (unlike some)!

  103. Day is going ok so far. Got some blog and school work done.

  104. Day is going good. Sunny, and just got back home. Hope to have a quiet day!

  105. Barbara Montag says:

    It’s a slow Sunday & I like that.

  106. Thank you for the giveaway. I am so sorry about the kitchen issues! There has to be something you can do, especially after paying so much money! My day is going okay. It is a quiet and chilly Sunday. I’ll probably work on some of my homework and stay in my PJ’s all day!

  107. Jessica Lodge says:

    There was no hot water this morning on the one day I needed to go somewhere this weekend. Then the train wasn’t running at my stop. Ugh! I’m home now so I’m sure it will get better, especially since The Walking Dead comes on tonight.

  108. Lovely Sunday…… did nothing but relax. Perfect kind of day for me. 🙂

  109. Snowed overnight and more today, but we got to church for the blessing of the veterans (myself and Steve).

  110. Tamra Phelps says:

    Well, my sore throat is clearing up. The antibiotics seem to have kicked in. That’s a relief.

  111. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    My day has been going well. I saw both of my grandsons and helped take care of my granddaughter.

  112. shelly peterson says:

    I had a good day. Wen to lunch with my daughter and grandson.

  113. Michele Soyer says:

    Out and about today.. errands and a bit of shopping… last stop the hardware for paint!

  114. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Busy day today as I’m preparing meals for the week. I’m out singing for 2 nights and at the theatre for another 2. Rehearsing every spare minute: we’re doing one piece with Irish Signing as well as sung words & I get muddled!

  115. My day is quiet and just catching up on chores and shows on Netflix.

  116. I am having a wonderful day. The weather is pretty gloomy but I was able to get to do my exercises and then some time to hot tub. That always makes my days brighter.

  117. Day is going good. It was sunny so I could get some things done that I needed the brightness, now it is already pitch dark at 5:15!!

  118. Very cold this morning with a windchill of 12 degrees. Then good swim class and the warm water was wonderful.

  119. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I was glad to have some sun this morning and took my granddaughter out for a walk.

  120. Spent the day out. Had a great day with my mom and my friend. It was just what I needed.

  121. Tamra Phelps says:

    Today we practiced standing and pivoting. We did some walking, too, but pivoting is the thing insurance wants to see at this point to continue covering physical therapy. So far, so good.

  122. shelly peterson says:

    Today was long and tiring day. I am ready for bed.

  123. Michele Soyer says:

    Tropical wave coming our way today.. started early this morning with the thunder and lightning.. resigned to a day of staying in and doing bits and pieces of things… should start painting but blah not with the rain….

  124. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Taking Mum to the Dr. for a general health check this afternoon and then I’m off to choir later this evening.

  125. Sarah Mathias says:

    My day has been pretty productive. Got some cleaning and laundry done. Now I’m off to work.

  126. Day is going good. Rainy today. I was able to get hold of someone in our town building department, they are now following up with the property manager about several things (some dangerous fire hazards) that were supposed to be done by LICENSED contractors, and were done by unlicensed. The complex has been getting away with doing this, as they don’t have to pay much, but the guy messes everything up, causing damage to our new roof (cost over $200K) and fire hazards.

  127. Oh, and they never got permits for all these things, probably because they would NEVER have been issued. Now they are going to be forced to obtain permits for everything they did with a licensed contractor who will have to undo their damage and fix properly. Now it is going to cost our association $$$$$, but better than ruining our building.

  128. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Replying to Rosie: Well done you! At last something official will be done about it. It’s just scary what they’ve been getting away with for so long. I wouldn’t put them in charge of a chicken coop never mind a residential building!

  129. Lot of rain today…. so I stayed inside…. Didn’t have a lot of work ethic today.

  130. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    Today I had a colonoscopy , so I am rather tired now and shall go to bed shortly.

  131. Not a good start today. My car wouldn’t start. Thanks to AAA and a new battery my car is now running.

  132. shelly peterson says:

    Today was ok. I was hoping to catch up on some sleep but no luck.

  133. Laurie Nykaza says:

    Our day was ok we just hung out and cleaned the house today not to much going on.

  134. Michele Soyer says:

    Another tropical wave day but have no fear I have a plan.. cleaned the downstairs apartment and am finally after 13 years since mum has been gone have plans for re-decorating it….plans need funding so it will have to wait till next year but getting rid of things is a start…

  135. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I have an ear infection. Bummer as I can’t hear myself sing (or blessing, depending on your point of view), and we’ve another rehearsal tonight before launching the One-Act Play Festival tomorrow night. Hopefully the antibiotics will have kicked in by then…

  136. beth shepherd says:

    I have been having a really good day. It has been smooth and easy so far. The kids are about to be home from school and the chaos begins 🙂

  137. Day is going good. Getting chores done today, and doing some cooking!

  138. Volunteered at the book sale for the Denver Public library. Only bought 3 books.

  139. A lot of rain today….. no motivation…. lol. I will try to do better tomorrow.

  140. Barbara Montag says:

    I did not have any volunteering today.
    So was a quiet day did not get much done.

  141. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I did not feel as well today and was glad that it stopped snowing in the afternoon.

  142. shelly peterson says:

    Its been so cold and I am still so tired. I just feel like I cant get enough sleep.

  143. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Agh! This ear infection is driving me batty! I can hardly hear anything but there are lots of pinging & squeaking noises going on in my head and it’s hard to sleep. How and ever the show must go on as we kick off the launch of the drama festival tonight. Going for a lie down & hopefully a few zzzs.

  144. Michele Soyer says:

    For Kate.. hope you are feeling better today.. ear infections are painful and awful….well the drama never ends last night there was a snake up here in the gallery .. he was relaxing and staying out of the rain…well we began with boiling water and believe it or not wasp spray because of the range of the spray.. slowly we moved him with the water down to the bottom of the steps and he went into a flower pot.. ok we can sleep.. no no no at 1:30 am he made his way back up to the top…well he cannot get into the gallery so we gave up til this morning…called our neighbor who is our official snake killer and he handled the job..

  145. Barbara Montag says:

    So far my day is going well.
    No unexpected surprises – works for me.

  146. Day is going good. Walked to town this morning, now settling in with a cup of tea. I have a homemade chai spice blend I like to use. I followed up with the town building department, he is calling the property mgmt again as they lied to him about certain things. He says I now need to file complaints with the Dept. of Consumer Protection, as the building dept has no authority to come out until the complaint or permits are submitted (they had the maintenance man do the work with no permits, no licenses, slop jobs, all bad).

  147. Another rainy day. I feel bad for the lower line areas as I am sure there is gonna be flooding…. There was a snake on my porch this morning. God I hate snakes.. luckily my neighbor helped get rid of it. Bleh….

  148. Tamra Phelps says:

    Well, it’s snowing here. A really gray day, and I sympathize Kate. I had an ear thing over the weekend.

    Today was nice. I did a whole lot of nothing.

    No snakes or snow in Ireland! Last night went really well and the local press were there so we’re in that as well. Hopefully that will bring a new gig or two and new members. We’re first and foremost in it for the chance to get together and share our love for music of all types and the craic of course.

    A total stranger came up to me afterwards gushing that she loved the singing but that she couldn’t take her eyes off me. Apparently I ‘felt’ every word I sang and it was ‘beautiful to watch! Little did she know my tights were threatening to fall down half way through! I told Mum when I got home & she cried!

  151. I miss my own bed. Still Steve sitting for two more nights.
    Having up and down weather: today 65 degrees tomorrow high of 30 with snow and freezing drizzle.

  152. I wish things were going my way. Things seems to be hard today. But hopefully things will turn around soon. it builds character.

  153. Day is going good. Sunny and not going out, so getting some things done. Quite a bit of snow last night. They still had the board meeting even with the snow, but the property manager wasn’t there, but left his monthly report. He totally faked what is going on about the unlicensed contractor work, but the board had their secret executive committee meeting after, they might have talked about it, that the town is now commanding the property manager to stop. I spoke up about the faulty repair ruining our $200K roof, and so were other people with their own leaks.

  154. Tamra Phelps says:

    Lol, I just read Kate’s comment about her tights. I had that same experience at my high school graduation. A few people said I looked so serious…well I was worried that my pantyhose were creeping down!!

  155. shelly peterson says:

    Today was chilly but very sunny and pretty out. I of course am tired as usual. Hey are you tired of hearing how I am always tired. lol.

  156. Michele Soyer says:

    To Kate always knew you were a star….today I am hoping will be a gate painting day…still have a few to do.. if not I will touch up the kitchen….next week is Thanksgiving and I want to start celebrating on Wed when I bake!! Happy weekend all….

  157. Early yet, but the day is fine so far. Yesterday had some dings though–we have just sold a house and everything was fine with the buyer’s inspection, except that he said there was wind and hail damage to the roof that needs to be fixed. Called the insurance company, so will see what they say.

  158. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I just wasn’t feeling well yesterday – this damn ear is keeping me awake at night – so missed out on a night out at the theatre. Today, Caturday, will consist of shopping & errands around town, rugby on the telly & generally doing as little as I can get away with!

  159. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    Today has been a nice day. I have been relaxing and shall see more family later.

  160. Barbara Montag says:

    My day is going well for a Saturday – actually getting the laundry done.

  161. Day is going good. Suppertime soon. Walked to town and did a bunch of chores, so now settling down.

  162. Julie Bickham says:

    I am enjoying my day off, watching Christmas Hallmark movies. Hope you enjoyed your day.

  163. My day was busy, cleaning for the holidays and planning menus.

  164. Today was actually an okay day. I am getting my life back on track!

  165. shelly peterson says:

    Today was a good day. I went to lunch with my daughter.
