Thanks LP. My son showed up after I had the furniture in place. He took one look and started to yell at me. I took my time doing it. And I rested more than I worked. It really felt good to know I still could take care of myself besides just being able to dress and do dishes.

Sounds like you have your days full. Management is supposed to paint my apartment. Sure! They were supposed to do that four years ago. The workers have to move all my furniture. I get to go out for the day. If it ever happens.

Andy, sounds like you are following doctor's orders. Good for you. And buy that grandson a drum set. He will love you to death. You will become "Grampa of the Year!" Just be prepared to buy a second set of drum sticks. The first ones will disappear after about three days.

Oh my! I am so evil.

Sitting here finishing lunch with a honey crisp apple, so good! Apples are really pricey this year, these were $2.99 per pound!

Every year my daughter and I go apple picking. Not this year. She still is not allowed to drive. Looks like the both of us will be housebound this winter.

apples sure are steep in price this season, bakechef! but in most apple-growing areas, they are also much sweeter than usual due to an unusually dry growing season. so for me, it's a trade-off i can live with, for the time being anyhow....

I live in British Columbia - our Okanagan region produces some of the best apples in the world. Well, the BEST apples are exported and we get the rest and they are down right expensive. I can get US apples cheaper than local (unless I get to the interior and buy from the farms which we didn't do the past few years).

I can go to Alberta or Washington state and get some great BC apples for a lot less than I can here! But we love apples and don't worry so much about the price. It is just a bit of a frustration!

Apples are high in CNY and cider is $7.98/gallon.

Not feeling the shortage, just higher prices.

That is what I can never understand, we have a shortage but the shelves are always full.

Not just with apples but with all sorts of things.

I guess maybe the guy at the bottom of the food chain is the one who really feels the shortage.

I just don't get it!

Well, if regular apples are $2.99 a pound, then $2.99 or $3.49 per pound is pretty good for organic apples and they are way up the list of the dirty dozen. Time to go buy some apples I guess.

Today we are heading up into the hills and going to a Wildlife Park

I love going there and feeding all the animals!

We will have morning tea there at the cafe too

For lunch we are driving a bit further into the hills and are going to have a pub meal

It is a perfect sunny Spring day here..23C...so looking forward to it, heading out shortly

Just got back from hunting and gathering. Shrek is a lousy shopper, no patience with just looking around. Then we had a late lunch at Noodle Express, neither one of us had noodles.

Now, I need to get away from the computer and put away the purchases. Cats are fed and off the freezer so I can put muffins in there.

We did a few errands, had sushi and rushed home so I could start dinner as DH's brother came over after work. Dinner is almost ready - yum, can smell it down the hall!

We were going to move some furniture around but we are all too tired so it will have to wait until another day. It's okay, BIL loves to come here for my cooking! I think he would build us a house if he could get fed every day!
