Hey there everyone!

@Austina, very exciting that construction on the house is underway. Too bad about the stairs but sometimes these things just can't be helped. Wow, fantastic job on the driveway; what a difference! Such a sweet pic of Bertie, and how nice Adam and Kim went on vacation. Glad to read Colin is doing well after his surgery but so sorry about the bleeding. Stressful and I'm sure you're both relieved it's over. Congrats to Adam on his new car, how fun.

@mrs-b, love your garden, beautiful blooms...and your veranda is lovely and inviting. Fantastic news that you got good results on your tests and you're good for the next two years. I'm sorry David is still not doing well, it's frustrating and scary not to have a diagnosis. It's good he's visiting, and getting a chance to rest and relax. So nice Eleanor and Nathaniel are coming too, and can spend your birthday with you. Your plans sound so fun and I'm sure you'll all have a great time. Can't wait to see your new setting.

@canuk-gal, congrats on being fully vaccinated but sorry you felt faint afterwards. So nice of the young guy to help. Glad to see you're getting lots of cycling in. Yum to your trip to the organic market, and I love bruschetta. I had to refer to your post 2 times to get that spelling right LOL.

@missy, what a sweet pic of Sasha and I'm glad you've been seeing Snowflake. The pic of all four cats together is really cute. And Archie is gorgeous and he's growing so fast. Sounds like there's a good chance Greg will be able to work from home for the foreseeable future and that's great. Glad to see you got some encouraging news from the rhumatologist and I hope the bone specialist can provide some helpful additional info for you.

@MamaBee, good luck with finding the cookies; my local bakery usually carries those kinds, maybe check out a few in your area? Your dh sounds just like mine when it comes to presents. I know you are a very busy lady but I hope you give yourself a break whenever you can. It's very nice that you're taking your mom on an outing, it will be good for her and I'm sure she'll enjoy it. Any word on your asscher reset?

@marcy, sorry to read that Marty is under the weather and I hope he's feeling better. It's a shame about your flowers but I'm glad a few are hanging in there. Sounds like you had a good weekend and I hope your week at work is going well so far.

@bling_dream19, I fully support the concept of multiple wedding sets LOL. It's fun to switch things up. Your mother's bracelet is beautiful. Love pearls, so elegant and classic. I'm glad to hear your mother is slowly but surely making progress and I send her lots of healing thoughts. And glad to read that you are doing well, feeling positive, and enjoying your amazing collection.

I had a great visit with my nephew and his family. It was so nice to see them and now that we're all vaccinated I'll be visiting more often. Also met my friend for lunch on Saturday. I've been doing a lot of gallivanting as my father used to say haha.

We'll be heading back to SC next week and spending about 10 days there. In the meantime I'm going to try to follow Austina's lead and do some clearing out around this house. Wish me luck lol.

Take care all!

@junebug I’m happy you had a nice visit with your nephew and family. The first time I went back into my son and daughter’s house..I was kind of disoriented. It felt a little strange. Then five minutes later it was like Covid never happened…Of course, we know it’s still very much here..but being in the house with family was just so wonderful..I could forget about it for a little while.
I found the cookies! I went on Nextdoor to ask for help to find them. I wasn’t having much luck. We have them around here during the holiday season..but not now. I finally found them after someone told me she knew where I could find them.
I‘m so excited about your new ring! I can’t wait for you to get it!! You must be beside yourself.
@Austina is motivating me too. I’ve been ruthless..but it does hurt donating things that are expensive. Once I drive away I feel a load off…literally…haha They run up to my car when I pull up at Goodwill! :lol:
I haven’t heard the word galavanting in a long time…I have to use it now..haha

@MamaBee, glad you found the cookies! I'd say you do a decent amount of gallivanting :lol:

I cleaned out one kitchen cabinet...a drop in the bucket in terms of what needs to be done around here. I keep opening the cabinet and admiring it LOL. I admire you for tackling the big stuff.

Yes, the virus is still with us but it's nice to be able to return to doing a few normal things. It does feel a little weird being out and about!

Hi NIRDI’s!

@missy that is great your bone density increased. Hoping your teleconference with the rheumatologist is equally promising with some answers for the best path forward. Beautiful sky, clouds and ocean pictures. Mmm ice cream. I am not surprised Greg enjoys working on the lawn and flowers. I would think your humidity would help grass thrive there but the heat probably doesn’t help. I notice most of the edges of our grass are dead; I believe our lawn service burnt them with weed killer. I considering getting pictures and sending them to the company. Your flower / plant choices sound great. Coleus don’t seem to do well in our plant buckets but I like the color accent they add. I don’t have luck with begonias either but I sure enjoy them. Yay for another Snowflake sighting.

@MamaBee sorry you are so busy. That is sweet of you to take your mom to DQ; I have to admit sometimes I do want their soft serve. Those cookies look good; I am so glad you found them.

@canuk-gal you picked up some great stuff at the organic market. It sounds great. I think our farmer’s market starts next Tuesday; I stop on my way home from work. Glad you are having some nice weather. We are really hot already; the northern 1/2 of the state has about 6 wildfires going already. That is really nice you can choose what days you work.

@mrs-b yes cookies and ice cream look very tempting. I am so sorry your back has been bad this week. Hoping that gets better for you. Don’t be sorry if your beautiful jewelry distracted me so much I didn’t post my response here; I totally enjoyed your pictures and the stories behind them. Nice to get a new hammock frame and yes I would imagine a frame would be hard to loose. Maybe it will show up someday for you. I haven’t tried dahlias before but I do like them. A lady that used to have me come take pictures of her flowers raised some dinner plate sized dahlias; they were amazing. I hope my petunias come back; I am starting to think the hail might have kind of froze them. Marty is slightly better; he at least went out for a walk today and he said he didn’t fall asleep during conference calls at work. Nice that day is coming to visit but hate to hear he isn’t doing well. Hoping they find what is going on with him and get him on the mend. Sweet he’ll be there for your birthday. You have a lot of fun planned for your birthday; a limo sounds really special. Ooh can you share the CAD of the ring for your ACA? How exciting.

@Austina I hope Colin is doing better every day. And no I don’t think men do well with illness. We both had bronchitis one time; I’d called in sick to work. Marty got up and said he was staying home so I went to work. Everyone did a double take - I thought you called in sick; I told them that was before I found out Marty was staying home too. I am sure you can totally enjoy never power washing your driveway and walkway again. Bob the Builder, LOL. That’s great they are starting soon and gave you a timeline. Darn you will end up with steps out the back. Our front yard, driveway angles up but we only have one step to get to the porch then of course a step to get in the front door. We have a walkout basement and the backyard is very flat. The side worked out great; Marty had them move the window in his office so none of our basement windows needed a window well. I bet Adam is loving his car - what did he get again? Old memory here.

@junebug17 that’s great you have a lovely time with your nephew and his family, I met a friend for supper last night; it was great to go out and do something! Enjoy your trip to SC and good luck doing some cleaning out. I totally chuckled about opening your kitchen cabinet to admire it; you deserve it. I moved 3 tires this morning in the garage that were annoying me; that’s my accomplishment for the week.

Marty is doing a bit better. He is taking aspirin so he can sleep a bit and seems less tired. I don’t think it’s the big C but he has some of those symptoms. He keeps saying he doesn’t know if he has a fever. I woke up about 3 am really hot and immediately thought “crap; it is C and I’ve got it now”. Luckily putting on a lighter top and kicking off my slipper socks and covers made a huge difference and I was chilly again by 4 am. Sadly I never really got back to sleep. I rewarded myself with some mint cocoa at work to try and stay awake. I picked up supper at Culvers on the way home so I didn’t lift tonight. No way am I picking up deadlifts with a full stomach.

Take care.
Marcy

Good morning lovely ladies!

@mrs-b I am so sorry about your back. That is not fun at all and I feel your pain. Sending you so many back healing wishes. I am also very sorry about David and I hope he makes a complete recovery. Not knowing what is going on adds a whole other level of challenge. I am glad Nathaniel and Eleanor are visiting and your summer sounds like it is going to be joyous as it should be. And your birthday and Father's Day plans sound amazing and yes please to Cirrus visiting. He is gorgeous. :kiss2: Big big hugs and much love across the miles and an early happy birthday to you sweet friend. XOXO.

@marcy I am glad Marty is feeling better and may that continue. Ugh about your grass. We (Greg) have been working on our lawn as we have a lot of dead areas but probably due to the ferals and not the lawn company we have cutting our grass. Greg is working his magic though so hopefully it will come in nicely. He also planted the other day and looking forward to seeing those bloom. Glad you skipped the deadlifts on a full stomach. That was wise. You will make up for it today I am guessing. That's the thing about working out. Tomorrow is always another day. Thank you Scarlett for that bit of wisdom. Truth. :lol: Have a wonderful day at work today and hope everyone is on their A game. XOXO.

@MamaBee yes please those cookies look awesome. Are they gluten free? :)
LOL about your mom and Dairy Queen. I just saw DQ the other day in the Whole foods parking lot and I said to Greg where is the Non Dairy Queen? Do they offer non dairy options? Hope you both enjoyed some delish ice cream and it was worth the trip. I have never been to a DQ believe it or not. Hugs to you and your family and hope Father's Day is a good one.

@bling_dream19 gorgeous bling all of it. Your PS name is purrrfect for you. Gorgeous pearls, wedding sets, earrings, bracelets :love: and all your pieces. Your taste is exquisite like all the NIRDIs. I hope you are enjoying a blingtastic week and you get to see your dad this weekend. Happy Father's Day! XOXO.

@canuk-gal hope work goes well Friday and I hear you on brutal winds. Challenging they are when cycling. We have our fair share of winds here but I have to say Greg's solar power pedal assist (for him as I don't have it on my pedals) helps and until he gets his other knee replacement this is a great solution. Maybe something to consider? Hugs.

@Austina that is very exciting indeed. Keeping fingers crossed it is complete in 8 months and before you know it you will be in your new home and country with your son and DIL and Bertie. Reunited finally. I hear you on the stairs and wish we didn't have so many here especially when my leg was broken. But hopefully just a few stairs won't be too difficult for you guys even when you are older. Big hugs.

@junebug17 so glad you had a wonderful visit with your nephew and family. And got to meet your friend for lunch on Sunday. Yes that is how it should be and last year was very challenging not seeing our loved ones. Speaking of which my parents might be visiting us here tomorrow fingers crossed. The weather might be too hot though tomorrow so keeping an eye on the forecast since we still feel more comfortable outside despite everyone being vaccinated. My dad is 87 and my mom has many health challenges so we can't be too careful.

Oh and by the way I loved you using the word galavanting...my mom always said that about me when I was younger and even now at times. LOL she loved to say why are you galavanting around all the time :lol:. That brings up memories! I have to ask her why she rarely says that anymore to me...oh wait the pandemic that's why. No galavanting last year. But hopefully lots of galavanting/gallivanting in our future LOL.


And speaking of birthdays wishing you a very happy and special birthday today Junie. I hope your day goes exactly how you wish it to go and sending you bday hugs.


@Slick1 woohoo last week coming up. Same for my girlfriend (Archie's mom who is a school administrator but was a teacher for decades) and sweet summer is almost here. I know what a difficult time it has been and we continue to keep you and your family in our thoughts. Big hugs.

@springerspaniel thinking of you and hoping all is going smoothly and the family is doing well including the furry babies and sending you big hugs.

@sarahb hope you get to celebrate a happy Father's day with all the dads in your life and sending you big hugs.

@Polabowla any special plans this weekend for Father's Day? Big hugs and many good wishes continuing to be sent your way. XOXO.

Hi to everyone else. Hope all is well.
We cycled yesterday and it was a gorgeous day. We also visited Archie again haha. He had just run through the water so he was a bit wet but no less gorgeous.

Oh I love Archie so much. :kiss2:


Today is another picture perfect day and we are planning on cycling. Tomorrow hoping my parents visit. Our gift to my dad was a big hit. Lots of filet mignon from Omaha steak. My mom was joking do you think there was enough food haha because we went overboard. I just wanted my dad to get a gift I know he would love. Score on that one. :)


Leaving you with our ice cream of the day yesterday and another beach photo as the water was unreal in color again. Sometimes I pinch myself because I cannot believe how gorgeous it is here. @mrs-b yes to the ocean being all that. It is cathartic in so many ways and no matter where we end up living I need to be near the water.


Screen Shot 2021-06-17 at 6.06.28 AM.png


This was at SG beach yesterday. Where we used to have a house. No photo editing done fyi. This is the color of the sky and ocean. Amazing right?

Thank you for the birthday wishes @missy!

Lol to what your mom used to say, my father would say the exact same thing to my sister and me haha

Wishing your dad a very Happy Father's Day and I hope they can visit soon. Archie is beautiful, nice that you get to spend time with him.

Hello lovelies

Happy birthday @junebug17, I hope you’re having a good one.
5F017273-6C2F-4CA9-8E43-18E1E6915B56.jpeg
You’ve made a start, and that’s the main thing, what’s the quote about a journey of a 1000 miles starting with a single step? :mrgreen:

:kiss2: Wecome to the OEC club @bling_dream19, it’s a stunner. You’re really living up to your name :lol: Your Mum’s earrings are just gorgeous, she’s going to be thrilled with them.

Awww @missy, what a lovely gift for your Dad, they’re going to really enjoy their meals. Adam ordered a lot of meat from them last year, and was impressed with the quality. It’s been a dull rainy day here, so your scenery is really cheery seeing such a blue sky and azure sea. Your killing me with the puppy pics, he’s just gorgeous. Hope you had another lovely day out enjoying mother nature.

Everything crossed that you and Marty do not have ‘C’, @marcy I hear you on the hot clammy nights, it’s been so sticky here, I’ve just been laying on the bed with no covers on at all. Adam got a Tesla Y, but Bertie was very unimpressed being demoted from passenger to cargo this morning on his way to day camp :lol:

You just have to not think about the cost of things @MamaBee, we’ve given away some really expensive things, but I just don’t want the hassle of dealing with people, and console myself that the new owner will enjoy them and (hopefully) appreciate them.

I hope your guests have arrived safely @mrs-b and you get to enjoy every moment of their stay with you.

It’s been mostly wet today, but it’s been a welcome relief from the recent heat. We dropped some things at the dump, then did a little shopping. I got a leopard print tankini!

I hope all the lovely NIRDIS are keeping well, I know I say this every week, but how can it be Friday again tomorrow?

:wavey:

Back has completely collapsed. I think the disc has fragmented. Surgeon on Tuesday. Surgery as soon as it can be arranged. Dinner and all birthday celebrations - cancelled.

Hi NIRDI’s!

@missy yes I did my lifting tonight. Marty is staying home all week so he was wondering what was for supper when I got home but today I said I have to lift first. His aches and pains are better but he is sneezing, coughing, tired and still has a headache but not as bad. I totally agree galavanting is a great word! Archie is a cutie. Your dad made quite a haul from Omaha Steaks for Father’s Day. Very nice. That is great you are going to see them tomorrow.

@bling_dream19 your mom’s cluster earrings are gorgeous. I want some now. Like I need more things to add to my wish list. Your new VC OEC ring is fabulous. I am sure you’ll love it. Enjoy those new sparkles.

@Austina sadly Marty’s symptoms sure seem to be the big “C” but he is as stubborn as they come about being sick. Someone asked me today what his symptoms where - I said “irritable”. Ha Ha. I suggested tonight he call his doctor but got no where. He is staying away from people at the gym but not me. I’m covering my face when I’m sleeping on the side he is sleeping on. Not much I can do about it. Adam’s new car sounds great. Too cute Bertie didn’t like being demoted to the cargo area. I hate those hot sticky nights; you can add covers when you are cold but not much you can do to help when you are hot. Nice that it cooled off a bit there.

@mrs-b I sure hate to hear about your back / disc. Big hugs to you and mega dust coming your way. Sorry you had to cancel your weekend plans.

I had a quiet day at work so I was kind of bored. I did faithfully do my lifting tonight since I skipped last night. I had to dial in to work briefly; it’s always a crisis or so someone thinks.

Take care.
Marcy

I am so sorry @mrs-b and I am sending bucketloads of healing dust and hoping if you need surgery it can be done ASAP and your recovery quick and easy. I am calling you as soon as the hour becomes reasonable. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything OK. Gentle ((((hugs))).

Oh no @mrs-b what an awful turn of events. Everything crossed that if you need surgery, it can be done quickly and safely. I’m so sorry that yet again, life has been put on hold for you.

Hi NIRDI's!

Thinking of all of you fine ladies hoping your pretty jewelry brings you some smiles and joy every day but especially in challenging times. Hugs to all of you and extra hugs to those who can use them.

Marty is slightly better but certainly not well. I might pick him up some Gatorade tomorrow.

A few flowers are showing up so maybe my flowers pots aren't counted out for the summer yet. Of course it is raining right now; hopefully this storm doesn't have any hail with it.

I have no idea if we have any plans for the weekend; I think Marty should rest and keep his germs away from the world. Oh oh here comes that stinking hard white stuff. Grrrrr.

Take care.

So sorry to hear this @mrs-b. I know you were really looking forward to your birthday. I'm hoping you won't need surgery but if you do I hope you can have it done quickly. Hang in there and take care.

GM lovely ladies.

@mrs-b you remain in my thoughts. I am so very sorry about all of this and hope you experience relief ASAP and that all goes smoothly from hereon in. Gentle ((((HUGS))).

@Slick1 woohoo 5 more days! What a year indeed.

@marcy I am glad Marty is feeling a bit better. Hope that he continues to feel much better. Did you mean snow? Is snow heading your way? White stuff?

@junebug17 hope you enjoyed a wonderful birthday celebration.

@bling_dream19 hope you are enjoying a fun weekend.

@Polabowla hope all is good and you have a nice Father's Day celebration.

@sarahb happy Caturday Saturday.

@springerspaniel hope you are having a fun weekend.

@Austina how is Colin feeling? How are you doing? Hope all is well and you are enjoying good weather.

Hi to everyone else. Hope all is going well.

My parents visited yesterday and it was lovely. My dad worries me as he is very wobbly and driving all this way is tiring and I am not sure how much longer he can or should be driving. But good luck telling him that. It was a pleasure seeing them and a really good visit and the weather cooperated. The company and food delicious. OMG Greg made an amazing pasta salad with lemon zest that was TDF. Gluten free. So good.

We took a few pics but the day went so fast it was over before we knew it.


My photos crashed just now when trying to share it so I will share the few it allows me to. I have way too many things open on my computer and it is getting quite buggy. :???:

A photo of how still and peaceful it is here right now. It rained overnight and smells so pretty.
Sharing via phone because my computer is still crashed. Supposedly updating photos and repairing whatever that means. Hopefully it works. I don't love posting via phone. My eyes cannot see the small print as well. :/

No color editing. These are the colors.

I apologize for not posting much recently. We have been taking care of Ellie the miracle dog (post brain tumor surgery, atrial fibrillation, heartworm, two TPLO surgeries, etc). At least we had another year with her after the brain surgery in July. We are struggling with the decision to say good bye today because her quality of life is so poor right now. She has dementia, arthritis that prevents her from standing up, some neurological deterioration, is not interested in eating, among other things. We know we are making the right decision, especially for her, but I hate this part of having a dog. Anyway, love to all of you today and please hug your furry companions for me. I am very sad.

I am sending you many hugs and much love.
You have given Ellie a wonderful life. The best life anyone could give their furry baby.
And if it is time to give her peace then that will be the ultimate gift you can give her.
It is so hard. :(

I apologize for not posting much recently. We have been taking care of Ellie the miracle dog (post brain tumor surgery, atrial fibrillation, heartworm, two TPLO surgeries, etc). At least we had another year with her after the brain surgery in July. We are struggling with the decision to say good bye today because her quality of life is so poor right now. She has dementia, arthritis that prevents her from standing up, some neurological deterioration, is not interested in eating, among other things. We know we are making the right decision, especially for her, but I hate this part of having a dog. Anyway, love to all of you today and please hug your furry companions for me. I am very sad.

Oh no! @springerspaniel I am so very sorry. I will be thinking of you as you go through this heartbreaking time. ((Hugs)) and warm thoughts to you and yours.

Love your pics @missy ! You two look fab and love your moms bling shot! So happy you had a beautiful day with them ❤️

Happy Saturday lovelies

I’m so sorry @springerspaniel, this is absolutely the worst part of loving our pets. I know it’s no consolation, but you are doing the right thing if she no longer has any quality of life, a moment too soon is better than a moment too late. Be brave sweet lady, and hold her tight when you say goodbye.

How wonderful @missy that you were able to spend time with your parents yesterday, and the weather looked glorious. Has your Dad had any of his Father’s Day gift yet? Your mother’s ring is beautiful and she wears it well. Always great seeing happy couples together. Thank you for asking, Colin is absolutely fine, he looks bruised and battered, but has had absolutely no paint whatsoever.

I’m sure you’ll be mightily relieved that this school year is almost over @Slick1, I can’t begin to imagine how difficult this has been for you all.

Happy birthday @mrs-b, I hope you’re still able to enjoy it and are not in too much pain.

Glad to hear Marty is feeling slightly better @marcy, did he have a C test to check? Adam and Kim had to have one before leaving Cancun and then again during the week, both of which were negativo!

It thrashed down all day yesterday, it was relentless, with more predicted - joy :roll:

We’re going out for dinner tonight with our friends, to our favourite Italian restaurant, I can’t wait, it’s been an age since we last went out in the evening :lol:

Have a wonderful weekend lovely NIRDIs :wavey:
