HAPPY NEW WEEK!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
OG: I'm thinking of you every day and sending you strength. I'm sorry that you must endure so much uncertainty right now. All: I'll come back and make replies soon. I've been really busy today, and I'm running out of steam. LOL
Diane: I think you have some storms due tomorrow. Take care. And thank you. Do hope that freelance project is almost done....
Lindybird: "They bought cake!" Had to smile at that. The way to Tomasz's heart is clearly through his stomach. I remember my own grandkids used to get so excited when I arrived for a visit. It's so gratifying. Now it's Ms. D who rushes out to hug me. Matthew is how old now? And yes, Rosie does look gobsmacked about something. :-) (I'm assuming Tomasz was busy with the cake?)
Lots of yard work today; not too hard though. We are having the olive trees pruned Tuesday and I want to get the plants nearby cut back so when the guys have been, the whole place will look tidy again. I haven't been keeping up on it.
Have a good Sunday everyone.
Pat -- yes, me! I began mid evening on Thursday, and in the end had to leave my desktop on all night, as after two hours it was still saying that it had only done 24% of it. Thankfully it was happier the next morning, but I already don't like some of the changes, one of which is that my photos which have been reduced in size (so that I can post them on here) are now shown in the "downloads" section as only file numbers, not thumbnail pictures. Almost impossible to guess what they are! Bah!
PatO: 95 doesn't sound like a lot at all but I can understand your wanting to prune them a bit. It too seems more like spring weather than August here.
OG: Ha! My garden is an alleged "low-maintenance" one but we're on a corner lot so it wraps around the house. The perimeter is planted with Something Very Pretty (forgot the name) that has just finished blooming profusely and so I've been whacking off the old blooms. I went a bit mad with Salvia Greggii and think I'll be pulling out the ones that haven't done so well and not replacing them.
Lindybird: Ah, so the thing, when being photographed, is to raise your head just slightly so you only have a single chin. :-)) Funny how kids tend to lurk in the background doing things they're shy about, but close enough so we can hear and then making encouraging comments.
AQ: I noticed you had rain yesterday (today?) (tomorrow?) :-) How's the season going? Arizona is having an extremely quiet - and disquieting - rainy season without much rain....
Forestboar: I've heard exactly the same thing about statins. Hope things will stabilize now.
I've downloaded the Windows 10 update and it didn't take that long - maybe an hour? I'm on Auto Updates so maybe it does it when I'm not looking....
