My son sent off the picture for my daughter to a place in Minn. to have it enlarged on adic free paper. FedEx received it on the eight of this month. Here it is the 12th. And it is finally in Conn. So much for overnight delivery. Looks like I will finally get it in time for Thanksgiving to give to her. My son has to frame it. Then he has to get it here to me. I am not fuming. Just feeling so resigned because it is all out of my hands. I hope my son understands how important this project is to me.

We are going to replace it with a large plant or a couple of smaller ones and then cover the area with bark to match the surrounding area

Then I have to go to the shops for a stack of fruit...we are changing our eating habits to be even healthier

Then I am going to visit mum for a coffee

Mosquito Control Rings, I use them in the bird baths and my little fountain pond. I break them up and just use pieces for the small water features.

Wasting mega time trying to get the desktop computer reconnected to the Internet after replacing the hard drive. This is driving me crazy!

Here's wishing that everything works out well with your project.

I don't know about in the US, but here if I pay for overnight with FedEx and it doesn't get there overnight, I can get a refund.

I think they are pebbles and mosquitoes.

I'm running around like a chicken with no head.

I thought Stirling was coming home tomorrow. Turns out his flight is scheduled to land at 18h04 today. I'm delighted to have him home a day earlier than I expected. But, I am up to my eyeballs in creating and printing enough copies of the Danish Club's updated financial reports for all the members coming to the AGM tomorrow. I couldn't update them sooner - I got the last changes from our auditor this morning.

I would tell Stirling to take a taxi from the airport. He would get reimbursed as a travel expense. But, they have given him a powerful PC and four monitors! I should be able to fit that in my car. If it won't go in the back seat or easily into the trunk, I can fold the back seats down.

Haha, I just got a text from Stirling saying he had to rush to the airport. He thought it was tomorrow.

I asked if he thought he could get a mini-van taxi home from the airport.

Good morning everyone. There are days when I think the world hates me. When does the phone ring? When you are in the shower of course. When is there a knock at the door? When you are standing there wrapped in a towel soaking wet of course.

Now I have to walk around with my left eye closed. The vision is really great. And the lens from my glasses is too strong and keeping my eye open gives me a headache. But I still need them for the right eye. I can see I am going to have one of "those" days. But it is bound to get better. I need to find a nice quiet sappy movie on the TV and have some piece and quiet.

I am supposed to go to a meeting tonight. But I think I am going to stay home. the meetings are so boring. I am on the advisory board for the elderly housing in our area. They always hold these meetings during a meal time. Even breakfast. We have mentioned that we would like to see some food that caters to the diabetic. Falls on deaf ears. So I always eat before I go. Although they have started to serve bottled water for those that don't drink soda. Small victory. I will take it.

Anyway, today I am going to finish up the Italian sausages I cooked yesterday. I just may spend the day out in the kitchen. Spike wants a chocolate cream pie. I make the chocolate part from scratch and use the pre made Oreo cookie chocolate pie crust. I top it with plenty of sweetened whipped cream. What doesn't go on the pie, goes home with him in a container.
