How is everyone? NIRDI shout out!

Lovely warm sunny day. Well warm for us. LOL. Slushy and some snow melting but I think the white stuff is here to stay.

PS Mc2 is having a sale next weekend, I got an email. I think they are closing their Great Barrington store and inventory 15-35% off.

And here are the 50 50, leather in front stretchy in back! I've always loved leather and these are sharp! I just feel put together in these. They also have the slouchy ankles. What do you think? 20191122_190118.jpg 20191122_190127.jpg 20191122_190134.jpg

@missy @Austina @canuk-gal and everyone else! Opinions wanted on if this is how these are supposed to look or if this shoe just doesn't work for me. I'm considering the taupe lowlands and these 50 50. And at this price point, they need to be perfect! But I might need to just get used to the fit. I need help lol hugs!

Good morning NIRDI!

@AV_ how is work going? Any weekend plans? How's the weather by you? I love weather and love talking about it. It's fascinating to me for some reason lol. But our weather today is dreary and looks like a very cold and wet weekend especially for Sunday. Oh well. Hope you are enjoying better weather. XOXO.
Same here... I am a cloud watcher & fog lover & sitting behind mountains facing the sea is a very good place to see those swirling through peaks in every wheich way. I get to see blankets of fog flowing slowly down the slope toward my house every morning, including today, one way to walking on clouds. The rains of the past two weeks are supposedly ending today, else, I might take away every praise I had about winters looking like spring here - the past three ones & a couple more further in the past did - not this one. I am up for a couple of overnight flights & some such pleasures next week, certainly grateful that I hardly have a few such rounds of annoyance each year & not usually in the dead of winter. The serious storm will be from my dear work early next year - IDK, for now, I am happy to be bored & watching clouds when things do not work out on paper, or do.

Your glasses are highly fun!

-

@Austina I keep thinking of your friend, not that I would know what to do ,( It is difficult to talk with anyone not likely to react predictably to even innocuous topics; I've run from some such for a long time, so I do not know if there can be better than picking well trodden distracting topics - perhaps some memory she likes recounting; I was very close to the person so I'd know such refuge they had picked themselves from whatever trouble there was ,((( I might have known better had I been older then.

far for me to give fashion advice :lol: but they look to me they are the sort you can wear either way
both ways look fab

GM Lovely ladies, Happy FriYAY! How did it get here so fast? Just a quick post as I have to start cleaning (que in Cinderella song here please lol).

@junebug17 so sorry about your brothers insomnia. That is very hard to bear and affects one's whole mood. Hope you have a good visit with him and for thanksgiving plans go well.

@marcy hope yesterday was a good day and you are feeling ok. Sending continued loving hugs and good thoughts your way. XOXO.

@bling_dream19 I cannot wait to see which boots you decided to keep and how your plans are progressing. Keep telling yourself you are marrying the love of your life and it is all good. Hugs. And happy FriYAY. :)

@Scandinavian continued healing dust and hugs your and your mom's way. And yes I will happily send snow your way as I am sure @canuk-gal will do as well.

@canuk-gal how is the rest of your week progressing? Have you started holiday shopping yet? We bought for everyone (not many people) on our list. Nieces, nephew, Aunt and Uncle and parents. That's it for us. For the most part the adults don't exchange gifts but this year my Aunt and Uncle are hosting a Christmas Eve party celebrating their anniversary and my parents anniversary so we got them gifts. Hope you are having a good Friday. Hugs.

@Slick1 thinking of you and Chase and sending loving and warm and healing hugs your way.

@Austina such a shame about Shirley and I wonder if meds would help her? Maybe a visit to a psychiatrist would be beneficial as I am sure things have changed re her status since she last went to one. So sorry about all their family is dealing with and you are right once the baby comes it's going to be that much more challenging. Hoping you are enjoying a lovely day. So much fun anticipating your upcoming trip and getting all the stuff beforehand accomplished. XOXO.

@Daisys and Diamonds Thanksgiving prep is a lot but it's always fun. Cooking and baking and all those yummy smells emanating from the kitchen and then having your loved ones over to enjoy all that hard work. So worth it. Maybe one day you can experience an old fashioned American Thanksgiving...one day when we resume our host/hostess role you are invited along with many of the other NIRDIs.

@Mamabean I forget your plans for Thanksgiving. Are you hosting or going to family or going out to eat? Hope you are having a lovely week. Hugs.

@AV_ how is work going? Any weekend plans? How's the weather by you? I love weather and love talking about it. It's fascinating to me for some reason lol. But our weather today is dreary and looks like a very cold and wet weekend especially for Sunday. Oh well. Hope you are enjoying better weather. XOXO.


Yesterday was a frenetic but very good day. We rode 66 miles but what we did was come back home twice for 2 different work conference calls and by the time we got home for the day it was almost dark here lol. But we got in a great ride by breaking it up due to work calls. Whatever works right? But today is rainy so going to shampoo Fred and then run errands in between Greg's work calls. So no cycling today.

Ice cream later than usual yesterday...Jimmy and Meghan said they though we weren't coming lol. But it was a mad dash as Greg had another CC at 4PM and we didn't get to ice cream til after 2PM and it is almost 2 hours away by cycling. Not to ruin the mystery but we made it. Hahaha.

Screen Shot 2019-11-22 at 6.57.48 AM.png

We went out early AM after cleaning for the first round of cycling before CC #1 and we cycled in Sandy Hook in the AM.
Screen Shot 2019-11-22 at 6.59.21 AM.png

Then after CC#2 we headed to Asbury Park before ice cream.
@Mamabean can you find the bike? ;-)

It was a good day overall but it was a bit exhausting. Today will be more mellow.

Oh and my redone sunglasses arrived and I think they are good. I didn't have a lot of time to evaluate them but when I first put them on I didn't want to throw up always a good sign lol. Here's a quick pic...just got home before the last CC and it was a mad dash to do all we had to do but I couldn't resist opening up the package and trying them on for a quick sec. The late light sort of washed out everything but can you tell they are blue frames? I love them.

Speaking of mad dash I am off...time to clean...have a lovely day girls.

LOVE! I responded to you in the Boot Thread but to repeat I think any extreme close up shot will exaggerate what is going on and I bet IRL that no one notices any slouching. This perspective shot exaggerates what we are seeing and I would love to see a further away perspective shot. I shared examples in the boot thread but I think what is happening is normal and as long as you love it IRL I say go for it they look beautiful. :love:

Aww thanks Daisy. Must be the anemia keeping me looking youthful haha. They say 40 is the old age of youth and 50 is the youth of old age and I guess at age 54 I am still (for a short while) in the youth of old age. OMG a little bit depressing but there it is. :lol: And it sure beats the alternative.

Thank you. Yes I love the clouds. Beautiful. Stunning. Nature's beauty takes my breath away every single day be it at the beach or in the forest or even in the city. Beauty is all around. I hear you about being happy to be bored. I look forward to that day and praying it comes soon. Hope the rain ends for you today and you get to enjoy some lovely weather. And that winter continues to look like Spring by you. Spring is a lovely time of year with lovely weather. And I hope the work storm early next year isn't as bad as you anticipate.

Lovely warm sunny day. Well warm for us. LOL. Slushy and some snow melting but I think the white stuff is here to stay.

PS Mc2 is having a sale next weekend, I got an email. I think they are closing their Great Barrington store and inventory 15-35% off.


cheers--Sharon
What fun. Love Tiffany and I feel you re wanting everything. We are but flesh and blood and how can we resist such gorgeous pieces? Glad it provided much needed enjoyment after a busy work week. Enjoy your lovely "warm" weather. Our warm weather is over and tomorrow brings lots of rain. And please let us know if you get anything from Mc2. Exciting at up to 35% off.

Happy Caturday Saturday lovely ladies.

Hahahaha @missy! Ummmmm let me look a little more!!
I’m getting ready to pack up the crew to drive to Maryland. Talk to you later!
Procrastinating..Have to get going!
@Mamabean how did your day go yesterday? Thinking of you and hoping all went well. Hugs.

@Slick1 how is Chase doing? I am keeping good thoughts for him. It's so freaking hard when they get older and aren't doing well. Heartbreaking. I wish life was different in that we got to enjoy a long healthy life with our furbabies and it wasn't such a short time they are here with us. I hope you have a lovely and fun weekend planned and woohoo next week is a short week for Thanksgiving.

@Scandinavian sending you continued healing hugs across the many miles. Thinking of you. Hope F is completely better and that your grandma is doing well and your mother is feeling better. Hugs.

LOVE the new sunglasses!!!
Thank you Scandi!

@Austina good morning or should I say good afternoon by you. Have a lovely day. Hugs.

Missy, thank you for your loving thoughts and calming words. I am starting to relax more. I am marrying the love of my life and he loves me. Living room is still a disaster!!! I am going to make progress today - I've got boot city zappos, macy's and costco purchases that I'm going to go through, decide what I am keeping and then return stuff this weekend. FI is going to Macy's on Sunday to get his suit.
Ok I LOVE your sunglasses! You can wear fashion girl!!! You look beautiful =)2
@bling_dream19 aww thank you for your lovely warm words. Hugs to you too. And for the lovely compliments. Same to you! You look beautiful in your new boots and I bet you would look great in those sunglasses too. I really do. Having met you IRL I think those frames would compliment you very well. And yes, you are marrying the love of your life. Everything is wonderful! Nothing could touch that fact. Nothing. Hugs.

We are attempting to ride today. I say attempting as it is in the 30s today. Brrrrrrrr. Yesterday rained so no riding but we did run errands (how is it that errands are never ending lol) and I got my new sunglasses adjusted as well. And Greg cooked for me (always thankful for that or else I would starve lol) and bathed Fred. Of course the house cleaning and disinfecting continues.

Oliver continues to be a chew monster and he has ruined lots of things just in the bedroom. He has ripped or rather chewed through our comforter twice and my pillow. It's crazy. Greg made 2 chew toys for him out of desperation last night as no store bought toy was indestructible against him. Fingers crossed this helps. It's crazy. Oh wait, I already said that. LOL.

I am going to hit send as my computer is acting wonky and I don't want to lose this post but will share pics of Oliver's destruction in the next post and Greg's chew creation for him.

Destroyed worm #5
He just bites it right in half. Francesca used to carry the worms around with her like a little baby. They were her favorite toys. I am crying remembering how gentle she was with the worms. Oliver is like a monster with them. :(

Here he is trying to paw my face. He usually succeeds especially when I am sound asleep.


OK here are the toys Greg created last night for him right before we went to bed. He put cat nip into some type of indestructible material and welded it closed and made it sort of a wormy type shape. It seems to appeal to Oliver but we will see if it helps at all. He obviously needs to chew and we are trying to get him relief from that desire without ruining all our possessions.

Good morning girlfriends! Hope everyone is having a great Saturday so far. I got in from driving to Maryland last night totally exhausted. I slept nine hours last night which is a first! I have insomnia so this was needed sleep! My son, S, and Jackson are coming in a few minutes so I needed extra sleep to keep up with him today. They usually stay until evening so will talk to you tomorrow! Have a great day!

Hi NIRDI’s!

Austina, thank you. Like I told Callie; grief comes in waves and November seems to be high tide. I am doing fine now though. I appreciate the kind words. Our snow is mostly melted but Monday they are expected 6-12 inches again. Joy. That is too bad Shirley won’t take her meds; I hear about similar situations like that all the time. I guess think they don’t need them. Happy Birthday to Kim; your birthday and Christmas presents sound great.

Missy, glad you continue to get so many miles and look at that total. Woo hoo! You and Greg ROCK! Your new glasses look fabulous. Oh no that Oliver continues to bite and chew things; I hope Greg’s new chew toys work.

Scandi, I am glad you have GPS trackers on your furbabies. Great pictures and you have lots of snow.

Mamabean, I hope you had safe travels to Maryland.

Bling Dream; you have a lot on your plate getting ready for the wedding but it is so exciting. I’m not a boot expert but they look great to me.

Sharon, isn’t wandering around Tiffany’s fun? Everything is so shiny. Our company gives out Tiffany gifts for anniversary dates. We get things like clocks, business card holders, candy dishes, frames, etc. I just get excited when I see someone has a Tiffany box at their desk.

AV, watching the clouds and fog roll in sounds awesome. I’d love some pictures to enjoy the view with you.

Daisys and Diamonds, I’ve tried getting Siri to pick up things around here and it doesn’t work.

We had a busy day. We went to breakfast a little after 7 am; then did some grocery shopping. I had a hair appointment at 9 then I went to Office Depot, the bank and the gas station. By then it was lunch time so we went out for lunch. Next stop was a shoe store to get me some snow shoes; I got some Keens that I need to try on thick socks with but they should work. We wandered around Micheal’s looking at the Christmas decorations and decided we spent enough for the day and came home. We signed up for our 2020 benefits (looks like about $75 more a month total) and I got Thanksgiving cards ready to mail. We are heading to the movies here shortly to see Ford and Ferrari.

Take care.
Marcy

I hope everyone had a great day! I’m pooped from playing and chasing after Jackson..but it was fun..
I bought this off IG when Jackson was napping...I couldn’t pass it up. It’s only 9K UK from a seller in Germany..They’re all Zircons but I really liked it. It’s not perfect. It has very slight abrasions on two facets with a loupe..but not noticeable without the loupe. It’s 10mm across..It was a great buy..I’ll wear it on my right hand. It has to be sized..I asked David if he could also polish the facets. Hopefully he can..

@missy, hopefully these home-made toys will hold up to Oliver - and maybe the cat nip will quiet him down a bit too. I'm hoping he'll calm down once he has the run of the house again. And I hope you and Greg had a good ride if you ended up venturing out.

@Mamabean, glad you had a fun day with Jackson. I saw that ring on IG and was so attracted to it! It's really pretty and I can't wait to see it on your hand. I bought some cheap crystal drops for my hoops and I regret it now. I'm sure they're going to look cheap to match the price LOL. I really want genuine gemstones; talk about an impulse purchase, ugh.

@marcy, you were definitely on the go today. Sorry to hear you're expecting more snow. A night out at the movies sounds like fun and I hope you and Marty enjoyed it. And I'm glad you're feeling a little better. <3

@Scandinavian, what beautiful pictures! The snow looks so pretty and your furbabies really seem to love it.

@AV_, I'm glad you're enjoying a lull in your work and are getting some quiet time. Here's hoping the rain is finally ending. Best wishes for next week and I hope everything goes smoothly and you have safe travels.

@bling_dream19, I don't know much about boots but I think your new SW's look great on you!

@canuk-gal, strolling through Tiffany's sounds so enjoyable...I have always been in love with the Tiffany Soleste.

@Austina, your gifts for Kim sound lovely. Oh no to Colin missing his turkey dinner lol...ah well, he'll still have a great time. Good luck with the preparation for your trip. Packing is fun because it means you're going on vacation but it can be stressful too.

Thank you all for your caring comments about my brother's insomnia...he's been struggling with this for years and nothing really seems to help. I ended up not going to his place this week but will try for Monday.

Not much to report...dh had to go to his office in Philadelphia today so I went along to keep him company. We stopped on our way home for a light dinner and that's about it. DS is stopping by tomorrow for dinner and I'm looking forward to it. I feel like I haven't seen him in a while.

Wishing everyone a great day tomorrow!

@junebug17 I did the same thing with buying the ones from Etsy. I look at least once a week. If I see anything in gemstones I’ll let you know. Please do the same for me.
I’m heading to bed but I meant to say 9 kt not 9K..It’s Jackson’s fault...I’m so tired..lol Goodnight..zzzzzz

You had my dream day! Hair appointment and new snow shoes! I so need both of those. We have got lots of snow in the mountains now but not at home. Pretty though!

@junebug17 i saw this and thought of your brother not sleeping
its sleep radio and has given lots of people releaf https://www.sleepradio.co.nz/about

@marcy. im sorry November is such a sad time.
i have purposely forgotten the dates of both my parents death. i remember them on their birthdays and wedding anniversary instead. i like to have a nice bottle of wine and make a real effort to cook something nice for tea (dinner)
i get very angry if anyone reminds me on the day that they died like my cousin tends to do but i choose to remember happier days not the worst day - especially as my dad was only 53
anyway maybe have a bottle of bubbly for your parents anniversary =)2

@Mamabean wow !
awsome score !
well done
beautiful colour:appl:

@Scandinavian your snow is beautiful. i hope your mum and grandma are doing ok today and not in pain

@missy Ollie is so georgouse
did the play things tire him out at all ?

GM girls!

@junebug17 enjoy the time with your dh and ds and I hope you have a good visit with your brother tomorrow.

@marcy wow you did have a busy day. Sweet you accomplished so much. Nice you already got all your cards out too. Thanks for the cycling love. We did reach your anticipated goal for us. All I can say is you were right. I never imagined we would reach that goal.

@Scandinavian pretty snow. Enjoy. Healing hugs to you and your mom and hope she is doing OK and you are too.

@Daisys and Diamonds it did tire him out a bit but he is so destructive still. He bit through our comforter and despite Greg's sewing repair he bit through another large area. It's hopeless. I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

@AV_ hope you are enjoying a good weekend. And relaxing and just feeling rejuvenated and restored.

@Mamabean oh I love that ring so much. Cannot wait to see it on you. And I hope you find beautiful gemstones to attach to your earrings.

@bling_dream19 did you decide which ones (all?) you are keeping? Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

So the dryer downstairs has broken again but a different issue so we had to order a new one and who knows when that will arrive as they have a huge window of delivery and I have a doctor appt wed when the dryer is not getting delivered. I am overwhelmed once again with all that is happening. Our dishwasher broke a few days ago and while it is still usable it has to be repaired and they are due tomorrow but the time is not good and there is no way to get in touch with them. It's never-ending and if only we could be free of RW the rest would feel more manageable. And my meds have still not been approved and probably won't be. I am feeling just tired of all this but I am sure some of you can imagine.

We did have a great cycling day yesterday and hit over 60 miles again. Our total is pretty sweet.
Cycled 63 miles yesterday and

Looking like this week will be filled with appliance repairs and deliveries and a dental appt so might not cycle at all as Thanksgiving looks cold and very windy. But if we end cycling on this note I am satisfied. Of course if we get to cycle more I will be happy to do so haha but we will see.

Today is raining and miserable so it is shampoo for all the cats but Fred who was just shampooed Friday and then errands to run. Too bad we only have one dryer on shampoo day but we will make the best of it and I just hope the dryer and washing machines we do have continue working.

Have a Funday Sunday lovely ladies. XOXO.
Leaving you with our view while cycling and our ice cream selection from yesterday. Yummmmm.

Oh @missy when it rains it sure pours. Hoping for some silver linings on those clouds of yours soon!! Thankfully, the dryer can be replaced and amazingly enough you have another to see you through until then! But I know it must be very annoying right now and so totally not what you kneed in the middle of this rw nightmare! I hope the cultures come back negative ie positive news.

My grandmother is better but still recovering. My mother is slowly better with each new day but will start chemotherapy again 10th December so then she will get worse all over again lol. Got to laugh or cry. I aim for the first.
Hugs @Scandinavian (((hugs))). Greg and I are continuing good thoughts and well wishes for your mom and grandmother and I’m here for you any way I can be. Sending bucketloads of healing dust. XOXO
