In the wise words of @missy when one nirdi gets bling, we all get bling!
Soo, may I introduce my beautiful eternity band designed the one and only talented, generous, and beautiful @mrs-b ❤ the diamonds are .0315 ideal, crafted by Leon. It is sooo sparkly and I just giggle seeing her sparkle all the way around! 818228 815630

Good Morning NIRDI's. Jazzy said 4:56 was late enough this morning, so we got up and I made coffee and logged in.

@mrs-b I hope you're going to feel better every day. How great you have visitors and are enjoying having them over. Your visit sounds so happy! Looking forward to seeing your new projects. You have such special jewelry to oogle.

@Bayek it's so good to be married to a smart man. Glad your house had minimal damage and not more. Keeping the pumps warm was so smart. Hopefully, everything has nearly recovered for everyone. Have they figured out how/where it went so sideways? Glad to read you're feeling better now after your vaccination. Three days of fever would be really unsettling and upsetting.

My daughter's partner loves saltwater aquariums (obsession would be a good word here) and has tanks of saltwater creatures. During the Texas power outage, Texas "reefers" had their tanks wiped out, losing thousands of dollars of exotic fish and coral, etc. So daughter and partner are working to collect donations here in Virginia and overnight sea creatures to collectors in Texas to start over. I thought that was sweet.

@canuk-gal hi there, just a shout out. Hope your week is going well. Glad you liked "floofy MM". This cat keeps us laughing.
Having a nice lunch out and about sounds so nice! Hope your week is good!

@bling_dream19 your ring is so beautiful. I love that it was rehomed from mrs_b. That just makes it even more special. The perfection in the metalwork is mesmerizing. I am sure you're enjoying it! It looks great with your set.

@missy have a safe trip in for your endo appointments today. Thinking of you both. I enjoy your kitties so much. I think you're wonderful to offer a safe place for so many sweet ferals. (HUGS)! Sending the most positive thoughts to you today.

@Slick1 sending a hug. I hope your situation gets better soon.

@Austina good morning. Picking out the finishes in a home is so much fun. Hope your planning continues smoothly for the summer. Stay warm....brrrrr.

If your name isn't on here - sending LOVE and good thoughts. I'm so distracted. SHOUT OUT!

Today, I am so so happy.

I don't speak very much about him because he is an adult and very sensitive about the subject, but my son has been struggling for years to find a decent job. People with autism, even very smart, employable people, have trouble finding jobs because they may present a little differently. My son has a college degree but has spent years cooking fast food or pushing carts at a big box store and waiting for a chance. He has had an open case with the Dept of Rehab for eight years or so. He finished his network + and security + for networking. But he was been waiting for that big chance. To say he had lost hope doesn't even begin to cover it. I have been afraid for him. This is a man I have not seen smile much for a year and speak in permanent monotone.

Yesterday he bounded up the stairs and sat on the couch and exploded in laughter and glee and was giddy. He had just had a job interview and aced it. He said they were still interviewing, but he felt so positive that they told him he did an excellent job answering the questions three of five questions. As he was talking to me, they called him back and offered him the job on the spot. A long-term contract for potential hire. He has to drive an hour each way but does not care. My heart is so happy, ladies. I have been so worried for him.

My friend who was waiting on SSI finally had money come in.

Bling update:
Ritani upgrade and lab eternity in process (check). This is not new.
However, I saw these pearls yesterday on Cees Instagram. I inquired and they were so reasonably priced I couldn't say no. Oh my word, that gold. I don't mind the blemishes at all, I sort of like the organic feel.
I ran it by Steven who said I should have a "toy" for my new job acquisition (we call our pet splurges toys, he has some too). What a sweetheart. These are on the way from Amsterdam :) I'll knot them myself and looking for a clasp now. I spoke with Pattye from PatriciaSaabDesigns about silk color and we think the regular gold may be too light.

Hugs ya'll - have an awesome day! XOXOXOXO

Hi NIRDI’s!

@missy I didn’t even try to turn on the Apple TV today - I’ll stick with the satellite receiver - I better know how to work it, right? My sister’s cat decided my BIL was okay again today. My BIL saw his regular doctor and he approved of everything the other doctors have been doing. They will schedule his nose surgery soon. I hope your appointments went well today.

@mrs-b you changed your avatar - very pretty diamond and ring. I totally laughed at “I just want to watch TV”; I’ve said that many times. I hate coming home and finding the TV tuned to iTunes, Prime or one of our streaming services. I either forget it or go watch another TV. The one in the den isn’t hooked up to anything else. Ha! Did it warm up there? We were in the 50’s today - woo hoo flip flop weather in Wyoming! That’s nice spring arrives there in April - I don’t believe we are done with snow until about June 5th and then I wouldn’t bet on it. Looking forward to all of your new jewelry projects. I hope you start feeling better soon. How exciting your friend and goddaughter have arrived. Sounds fun!

@Austina I am kind of surprised to hear one of your dogs would sulk when you guys went somewhere. Is that usual for dogs to act that way? We only had dogs when I was very young so I don’t remember their behavior very well. Glad you have only 1 remote. I can see 4 on the coffee table right now. Sometimes I pull up the remotes on my phone; I seem to have less trouble with the remote apps. That’s great to get your travel and hotel arranged for July. Are you finding big discounts right now? Have fun shopping.

@canuk-gal it sounds like you had a great day; warm weather and finding great sausage rolls that brought back good memories. Sweet. Yay for new bikes. I hope you mom doesn’t have any side effects.

@bling_dream19 your rings look fabulous together. How exciting. How is your mom doing? How are you doing?

@MMtwo sounds like Jazzy woke you up early. Marty was up before 4 am; poor guy needs more sleep. That is wonderful news for your son; congratulations to him. How awesome! Good deal your friends SSI came in. Your new toy is very pretty; you definitely deserve them for your new job.

@Polabowla I hope your DS and DD are feeling better soon. I hate to hear your son has a concussion. Mega dust coming to your and your family.

Not much going on here today. Work, lifting, ordering in food. I am having fun on a jigsaw puzzle.

Take care.
Marcy

@Powlabowla, oh no to your son having a concussion, I'm glad he's comfortable and I hope he recovers soon. I hope your dd is on the mend soon too. Being a mom is definitely is stressful sometimes, hang in there and take care.

@MMtwo, I can't tell you how thrilled I am about your son getting the job! - how wonderful it must have been to see him so excited and hopeful. Big congrats to him! I'm sure it's been very hard on you seeing him struggle and what a relief to have that worry lifted.

Jazzy is adorable. The pic of him in his bed is a riot! Can't wait to see your new ring. Those pearls are stunning and how sweet of your dh. So nice of your dd and partner to spend time and energy helping others, very thoughtful.

@canuk-gal, glad you had a fun night out and got to wear your bling. Nice your mother got vaccinated and I hope she feels ok. Great news that your love your new bike, sounds like you will have a great cycling season.

@marcy, I'm glad your BIL's heart looks good and he's home and doing well. I hope he gets answers to his other health issues soon. LOL to not getting any sympathy from Marty! You're not alone, I have trouble figuring out how to use our remotes too lol. Looking forward to seeing your new setting.

@missy, great news that your sister and parents are fully vaccinated! Hopefully they won't have any severe side effects, although I know your mom had a rough time and I hope she doesn't suffer this time around. I hope your doctor's appointment went well and you're on your way to a diagnosis and treatment plan. Tux is such a handsome fellow, what a cutie.

@bling_dream, your band is gorgeous and I love it with your other rings, so glad it's bringing you joy.

@mrs-b, I'm sorry the Humira isn't helping so far and I hope it starts bringing you relief soon. Take care and feel better soon. The new ring you have in the works sounds beautiful and perfect for a more casual look. So glad you're having a fun visit with your friend and goddaughter, must be great getting to spend time with them.

@Austina, it's nice you and Colin had a relaxing weekend, and it's great to have a trip to look forward to. Sounds like you have a busy week, good luck and I hope you get lots done.

Dh and I will head to SC sometime next week. I'm getting myself mentally prepared for the long drive. It will be nice to get away for a while. SC is opening up vaccines for 55+ on March 8, so who knows, maybe we'll get lucky.

Stay safe and be well!

GM girls, sorry I didn't post yesterday. Many of my results are already back and it isn't looking good. For some reason I am not absorbing the thyroid meds and my other findings are troubling. I don't feel like discussing right now but just wanted to let you know I really appreciate your caring and your support. I will chat off-line with you.

@marcy I am glad your BIL is well on his way to a full recovery and haha yes glad the cat is loving him again. Glad lifting and work is going well. Hope the food was yummy. Hugs.

@canuk-gal woohoo new bike! Enjoy in health and cycling joy. XOXO

@Polabowla more good wishes being sent your way and hope your DS and DD are feeling better very soon. I hope your son recovers very soon from his concussion. XOXO

@junebug17 my parents and sister did OK with the second vaccine thanks for asking. I hope you and your DH can get your vaccines soon. In SC. And yes getting away will be a lovely change of scenery and hopefully your drive will be relatively easy. Hugs.

@MMtwo that is the most wonderful news about your son! Thank you for sharing it with us and may he love his new job and I have no doubt he will excel at it. Big hugs to you both. And also wonderful news about your friend's SSI benefits. Woohoo all around. Hugs to Jazzy too. XOXO.

@mrs-b hope each day is better and better. Big hugs to you.

@bling_dream19 great update and now your mom will really be on the road to a complete recovery. Big hugs.

@Austina I always so appreciate your check ins with me and everything. Much love being sent your way.
Hope you and Colin are enjoying a lovely day.

@Slick1 thinking of you and hoping your FIL is improving. Big hugs.

Greg and I went for a nice walk yesterday and the temps were in the 50s so that was wonderful. It is much colder for the rest of this week and very windy so we shall see if we get to go for a walk. We do have errands to run today so not sure if there will be time and if the weather will be too chilly.

Leaving you with a photo from our walk yesterday. Have a wonderful day lovely ladies. XOXO.

Hello lovelies

:kiss2: @bling_dream19, that ring was truly meant to be yours, I think you should call her Kismet! It’s just the perfect compliment to your set.

@Polabowla I hope your DS has recovered from his concussion, poor chap. How’re you doing?

Good news your Mum got her first vaccination @canuk-gal , I hope she’s feeling fine and had no serious reaction to it.

Hopefully the vaccination situation will be a lot better in SC @junebug17 and you and DH will be able to get yours without too much bother. There’s always such a lot to do before you go away, I often wonder why we go, but then the minute we reach our destination I realise it’s all been worth it. Have you done anymore painting lately?

What a great thing to do @MMtwo, I’m sure all those who lost their fish during the outages will be extremely grateful to receive new stock. We used to have tropical fish, and lost them all when the thermostat when kaput :( WOW, that’s fantastic news for your son, you must be so proud and happy that he made such a great impression that he was offered the job so quickly. I wish him every success in his new position.

Most of our dogs were always happy to see us when we got home @marcy, just Monty, he was very sensitive, and didn’t like us leaving him, even though he was spoilt rotten when we were away. Dottie was always very restrained, we knew she was happy to see us, but she was never one to make a big fuss. That’s good news that your BIL’s Dr is happy with the treatment he’s received, and hopefully he can have the surgery soon and start to get better.

I hope you’re having fun with your guests @mrs-b and that the Humira is working it’s magic on you.

I’m sorry that life is so difficult at the moment @missy, and that the Dr’s appt didn’t go as you would’ve hoped. You have had more than your fair share of challenges, and it’s about time you got a break. Continuing to keep you in our thoughts and sending lots of love and good wishes your way.

We actually went to the supermarket yesterday, first time in months, it wasn’t particularly busy so we took a list each and got round as quickly as we could. We didn’t manage to get out for a walk because it was foggy in the morning, and wet in the afternoon.

We finally got the paperwork from the electrical contractor :???: Good grief, we spent hours looking at every light switch, electrical socket, light placement, tv point, USB point, telephone point, and anything remotely electricity related, went through endless pages of lists of extras - half of which we don’t know what they are, and the other half, don’t know if we need them:lol: We’ve got a meeting in a hour to discuss it with them, so hopefully they can clarify a few things with us.

Keeping you all in my thoughts and sending love and hugs to you all :wavey:

Edited to add, Adam took Bertie to the vet yesterday, and much as I thought, she definitely thinks he’s a lot younger than the shelter said. I’ve always thought he’s still a pup, and the vet thinks he’s probably only 12-18 months old.

@Austina ugh those details about sockets would fry my brain!
Though one thing i have learned, it's hard to have enough outlets in convienient spaces! (Ex my basement has 1 outlet. Plug in the screen for kids cartoons, the excercise bike.... and then that's it. Can't plug in a fan or game table or anything else.)

As long as you don't overload the circuit, could you use a power cord extension strip?

Hi NIRDI’s!

@missy I am so sorry about your test results, mega dust and tons of hugs coming your way.

@junebug17 I braved turning on Apple TV today - woo hoo it worked too. Then I was quite impressed when I turned on the satellite dish it worked as well. I should go buy a lotto ticket. I hope the weather will be nice and spring like for you guys in SC. Safe travels.

@Austina how exciting to go shopping in the grocery store. I might stop on my way home from work tomorrow. I’m having trouble getting a few things on weekend pickups. Good luck figuring out all the outlets and plugs. We seem to have an excess of them but messed up in a few spots - the closet (basically a room) has NO outlets and our bathroom doesn’t have a light switch by each entrance. It’s hard to plan them out - Marty drew out each room - especially figuring out his wiring for speakers. How exciting to be working on design though. Nice that Bertie is younger than thought.

@Polabowla you never notice missing plugs until you need them.

No much going on with me today. Frustrated with work; we are crazy busy which means more of the cracks shows. We ordered in Mexican food for lunch. My excite-O-meter didn’t register much today.

Take care.
Marcy

GM lovely ladies and happy FriYAY!

@marcy thank you sweet friend. I am sorry work is frustrating. But it's friYAY today so yay for that. How is your BIL doing? Big hugs.

@Polabowla how is your son doing with his concussion? How is your DD? How are you? Sending you big hugs and lots of healing vibes. Please don't concern yourself about me. I hope eventually things will be sorted out and I will be OK. I am scared- I will not lie- and I feel my doctors aren't putting the whole picture together but I am hoping hard somehow it will work out. Anyway I am thinking of you and sending lots of love and good wishes your way.

@springerspaniel thank you so much. You have no idea what it means to me having you on my side. Especially now. Big hugs and much love to you.

@Austina yay for Bertie being a puppy still. Not surprised at all. And I agree you can never have too many electrical outlets. How did it work out with that? It's always challenging doing any type of electrical or plumbing etc but once it's done it's whew. What a relief. Yes to grocery store shopping. It's funny how wonderful errands are since we have been so cooped up for the past 12 months so to speak. Ordinary errands take on a whole new meaning. Hugs and love to you.

@MMtwo yay for all the happiness and deserved good news going your way. Big hugs. And by the way no one looks as good as you in short hair. I would give anything to look good with short hair. I might be shaving my head soon and lol that won't be a good look for me but luckily Greg loves me no matter what so it's OK. Just wanted to say you rock the short hair look. Hugs.

@Slick1 How is your FIL? I have been thinking about him and you and sending so many well wishes his and your way. Life is so tough at times. Big hugs and much love and hope the weekend brings good news.

@bling_dream19 hugs and hope your mom's recovery continues to go very well. All my love and good wishes.

@mrs-b hugs and love to you and continued good wishes. Hope the Humira's positive effects are taking place. XOXO.

@canuk-gal yay for enjoying your wonderful new bicycles and hope the weekend brings you happy cycling adventures. Big hugs.

@MamaBee fingers crossed for you and your mom. XOXO.

Hi to everyone else. We had a good day yesterday. Went to Costco and it was quick. Not crowded again so that was sweet. And I got my favorite new snack I am addicted lol. It's a mushroom chip and it is soooooo good. And then we went for a walk and managed to enjoy a nice long walk despite the chilly wind. It was good to be out in the fresh air and out of my head if you kwim.

Screen Shot 2021-03-05 at 7.43.58 AM.png

Being in nature helps one feel better about things and puts life in perspective. Even puts death into perspective. It's peaceful and calming.

Today is very windy so not sure if we are going for a walk but we are going to do something outside for a while at least even if it is just to go to the outdoor outlets and walk there as it is somewhat protected from the wind. A little bit anyway.

Hope everyone has more YAY in their FriYAY and sending each one of you big hugs. XOXO.

@missy of course I'm worried about you & greg! I am thinking about each of you & hoping for good things.
I hope the drs can put everything together & find the right treatment for you.

My son is feeling a bit better thankfully.
I am having a lot of issues with the school still. My husband spoke to them & reiterated everything i have been saying, so i hope they finally back off.

@MMtwo How's the job going for your son?

Wishing everyone a peaceful happy weekend!

Hello lovelies

Ugh, sorry work is manic at the moment @marcy, doesn’t sound like much fun. Who’d have thought a year ago, a trip to the supermarket would be the highlight of our month? Talk about hitting the highs on the thrill-o-meter :shock: I hope today was less hectic and stressful.

@bling_dream19 you go girl, you’re on a roll, I saw the thread, and all I can say is WOW, that’s one spectacular bracelet.

That’s good news your son is feeling better @Polabowla, and I hope the school starts listening. You shouldn’t have to get a man involved before they listen to your concerns, what is this the 18th century :x2?

Sending good thought’s to you and your FIL @Slick1 and hoping all will be well.

Not long to go now @MMtwo until you start your new job. When will your DS be starting his, I expect you’re all still on cloud 9 over the good news.

How fun to be enjoying your new bike @canuk-gal, I hope the weather stays fine so you can get out more and enjoy it.

I hope you managed to get out today @missy, it was pretty cold here, just 4 deg C when we went to the country park for a walk, it rained yesterday so it was really muddy and slippery. I does help to clear your mind and commune with nature, although it’s great to get back home in to the warm!

The meeting went well yesterday, we added a few extra sockets, moved the TV and data points (they’d put them in what we thought were odd places), changed the lighting in the laundry and master walk-ins, and organised the electric hook-up for the pool. I had a nice surprise today when I looked at the house floor plan and saw the price has gone up by $80,000. Thank goodness we didn’t hesitate and got on with signing the contract when we did.

No plans for the weekend - no surprise there :lol: Keep safe and well lovely NIRDIs:wavey:

HI:

NIRDI shout out!!!!!!!!!!!

Who knew black colored runners are all the rage???? I bought some b/c all my runners are pastel colors and they new constant cleaning and I wanted a dark color to hide the dirt! But all and sundry have black runners/sneakers/slip ons. LOL

12C and a great day for a ride. Winds picked up but I dressed well today. Really enjoying my new ride. Too bad the reasons for needing a new bike, but that's life.

@marcy I hear you on work. Some days I just run like mad......

@Austina why the dramatic increase in price?

Went to my favorite bakery today. I got two compliments on my hair!!! LOL. Maybe it isn't so bad after all!!!

I hope everyone is doing well and I am sending healing vibes across the miles.

cheers--Sharon

Happy Friyay nirdis! I hope everyone is well and happy!
@MMtwo i am so happy for your son!
@missy i am loving your nature photos and you look adorable! I would like a magic wand for you and @mrs-b and @Polabowla and whomever needs some fairy dust. Hugs to you my friend.
@Austina its more than a roll its a lifetime record never to be repeated! I'm pinching myself. The bracelet shipped today and now its time hurry up and stress I mean wait. I cannot be more thrilled to have an eternity and a tennis bracelet in the span of a couple of weeks! I am feeling very grateful for @mrs-b and @m-2-b It feels soo amazing to have 2 lifelong pieces that I've been waiting for so long, to be complete! I am thrilled and very happy and grateful. I love Kismet I have to look that up but I love it friend!. I keep pinching myself that this is all real.
@marcy hey girl and hellos to everyone. I'm doing fine just exhausted and overwhelmed but very happy and grateful. I'm on a major jewelry high! My mom is getting better and through an mri has found the sources of her pain. Hopefully treatment will be effective. I am soo grateful for the prayers and fairy dust.
@canuk-gal I keep thinking of your dinner dripping in jewels and I love it! Basically I do that at home and I love it but a restaurant is soo much better!
Sending love and hugs to all!

GM lovely ladies and happy Caturday Saturday! My computer went wonky just a moment ago and I had to reset it and thought I would lose this entire post but whew, no, it's still here. :read:

@MMtwo thank you for the hugs and right back at ya. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. XO.

@Polabowla how is your DS doing today? How is the rest of the family? And how are you? Big hugs.

@bling_dream19 aww thank you and same to you. Hugs and love and enjoy a sweet blingy weekend. And woohoo more bling on the way. I cannot wait for us, erm I mean you, to get your new bracelet. :bigsmile:

@marcy how is your BIL doing today? How are you? Hope you are looking forward to being off work and enjoying a good weekend. XO.

@mrs-b how is it going with the Humira? Hoping no news is good news and keeping good thoughts for you sweet friend. (((Hugs))).

@Austina that is sweet you got in before the price went up. Yassss. We did get to walk yesterday and the day before. Though yesterday since it was super windy and cold we walked at the outdoor outlets haha and I bought 2 pairs of shoes I did not need. Greg is such an enabler. The outdoor outlet was empty. As in nobody but the employees and us. I think because it was so cold outside yesterday so no one was as crazy as we are to be walking outside there haha. I am not complaining as I like empty but it is worrisome for the businesses and they might have to close if it doesn't pick up. I did speak with some of the employees there and they said it varies and some days are very busy so fingers crossed everyone keeps their jobs there and businesses remain viable. We are so close to being through this pandemic. More and more people getting vaccinated here and hopefully everywhere. The J&J vaccine is making a big difference. Hugs and have a good weekend.

@canuk-gal Yay for cycling yesterday. So much fun and yes, new bike not for a great reason why but still sweet having a nice new bike. Making lemons out of lemonade. I am glad you got new sneakers. Speaking of shoes I made 2 impulse shoe purchases yesterday, one waterproof and one water resistant. I will share them below. Do not need them at all but Greg ever the enabler insisted. LOL who am I to turn down more shoes? :lol: Big warm hugs.

@sarahb happy weekend and big hugs.

@springerspaniel hope you have a wonderful weekend. XOXO.

Hi to everyone else. Greg and I went to the outdoor outlets yesterday and did our walking there. Since it was so cold and windy it is a little bit more protected there than walking in the woods or parks. As I wrote above there was no one out yesterday and we had the place to ourselves. Probably because it was so windy and cold out. Greg got PJs (so exciting lol) and I ended up with 2 pairs of shoes that while I don't need are fun. And one is waterproof and one is water resistant. Both from Cole Haan. And some good news. I picked up extra thyroid meds just in case and used Good Rx and it wasn't too expensive. So now I will have an extra 3 month supply just in case. It makes me feel calmer having an emergency stash.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Caturday Saturday and sending you all big hugs.

Leaving you with my purchases from yesterday. :)
Love the pink laces and pink inside. Those are waterproof. Couldn't pass up cute waterproof shoes.

Oh and yes I am wearing and loving my OEC studs!
Quick selfie with the sun streaming through the car window yesterday on the way home from the outdoor outlets.

Awesome shoes, @missy! And that photo of your cats is fabulous. <3

You always inspire me with your walking. Just wanted you to know that. Reminds me that exercise is a must-do, and gets me off my butt when I'd rather just lay around. Thanks, friend. :)) ox
