HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY FULL MOON
I hope everyone has a great week!
The full "flower" moon is next Saturday (the 18th)!
Still relentlessly raining here...
Diane: Thank you! Hope no floods in your area. We had thunderstorms this afternoon - as did the Arizona contingent. Very unusual weather for May in both places.
bjane: The Ace Hardware that's moving in is part of a family owned chain based in the Central Coast that has great reviews. I'm hoping they'll hire back any available former OSH employees - ready made experience. :-)
OG; What kind of tiles did you have before that hurt your feet? I'm only asking because we were alerted to the important of floor tiles in terms of foot comfort.
Heather: I've just finished reading All That Remains by Sue Black - she's an apparently famous forensic anthropologist from Inverness. It's about her work in that field including her time in Kosovo and in Indonesia after that awful tsunami, in addition to work with UK police departments. It's a fascinating albeit grim topic but I didn't find it depressing; she has a very down-to-earth and even humorous touch.
Mothers Day here tomorrow. OH bought me a lovely white orchid (not a plant I've had much success with) and some roses in the softest pink. And I'm not even his mother! :-)
Happy Mothers Day. Fairly quiet here. Text from Dau#1, phone call from Dau#2. I promised myself to post you some pics but the day has slipped away and it didn’t happen.
HEATHER - Good to see that you have emerged from lurkdom. Cor blimey, I lurk most days and fail to post.
Kitchen calling. Lazy tea - leftover shepherds pie with veggies.
Heather: I second everyone's comments about not feeling like you have to respond to everyone's posts. And as for letting it seep through onto the thread - well, that hasn't stopped me! Take care of those other things and we'll see you when you feel like it. By the way, I liked All the Light You Cannot See. I'm currently reading An Inconvenient Death, about UK weapons inspector/expert David Kelly and the alleged (have only just started it!) cover up by Tony Blair's people. That Sue Black book is fascinating - a lot of information you might not otherwise have sought out. Have not heard of War Doctor, but will investigate. I guess road work is done in good weather - an international phenomenon it seems.
Lindybird: I'm going more to succulents and cactii in pots. I had some flowering baskets hanging out front, but they need constant watering and it didn't seem like a good idea in the middle of the drought, which has now been cancelled but...... Some succulents do well in hanging baskets but I haven't got around to that. And probably won't. Just looking at "won't" and wondering if it should have that apostrophe and if so, what was it before it was a contraction? Shall have to Google it. Oh, ignore me - I get hung up on stuff like that and end up down all kinds of linguistic rabbit holes.
AQ: I got texts, phone calls plus the flowers and this morning a card from OH. Apparently, granddaughter has a new friend, who apparently drove out of his way this morning to leave flowers for her (and my daughter!!) on their front doorstep on his way to work. If the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, looks like the way to a girl's heart is through her Mom. (That could be tricky.)
All well here. Today's yoga class canceled (spelled with one "l" this time). Language can be so confusing! Take care all.
