    Good wherever you are in your day, it's afternoon here on a cool grey calm day, I have just made a veggie chilli which should last me until I leave for Bracknell and our Mexican Adventure .................. I ordered some Pesos online which were on offer at Tesco for a good rate, it saves the pressure finding an ATM at the airport on arrival. Within 10 minutes of ordering I received an email saying they were ready for collection, they obviously stock some locally, so I feel rich now with 5,0000 pesos [​IMG] it's only about $260 but it looks a lot and will buy a lot [​IMG]

    Hope your Friday is going well.......

    Like rodeo or not, you should take a look at the three photos I put on the Thread. The little "tike" cowboys are cute.

    Good Morning Everyone. @Chrissy Cross I'm still here just been a little busy lately helping my daughter with a project. Glad you made it safely to your daughter's in that foggy weather. Today my Honey and I will probably be going to her home again, my Honey to help our SIL with a yard project...and me to lend a hand inside again.

    It's back to being in the 30's again and will stay this way for awhile. It's 30 degrees right now and the high is supposed to be 43 with sunshine all day. My Honey will definitely be wearing full winter gear to work outside including his long john's. :)

    I was over at my daughter's yesterday helping with the kids and organizing the laundry room while doing laundry. My other two daughter's inherited my organization skill but my youngest did not...so even though they are moved in and most everything is unpacked...there still remains a lot that needs to be organized. While my daughter works on the things she is good at, I do my thing organizing places that still need this. It's fun doing what I'm good at while spending time with those I love and sharing a meal together before we go home.

    It's the weekend...hope it's a blessed one for everyone. :)

    Afternoon all...


    Another grey cloudy day..this is getting really monotonous now.... I've been trying to decide whether to change the handles on my little french style bedside cabinets.. from steel which as you can see are on there now.. to a red diamond crystal style ..like these.. 64dc94ecbadb83c5716bf5930aafbde0.jpg


    This is the cabinets... or pedantically..one of them... what do you think...change or not... the bed has a red leather headboard .

    Good morning everyone. High of 73 today and the plan is to go the country club before lunch so my grandson can hit a few balls and then my daughter said we should have lunch there on the patio.

    My stomach is iffy but I'll still take my grandson...maybe I'll be better later.

    @Holly Saunders ...I love those red knobs but I think it would be too much for that white night stand.

    I think that's all I'd see when I walked into your room.

    Maybe it's too much of a contrast with the white....but what do I know? I haven't redecorated since I was married. :(

    yes I was wondering that too about the colour CC, perhaps a clear crystal might be better. The picture is quite misleading because the knobs are really quite small.. however I think it might make the cabinet looks a bit cheap.


    Really...you haven't redecorated since you were married. ?...wow... I'm always doing it, I get bored very quickly with the same surroundings..

    I just don't care that much about my surroundings anymore.

    I do change out decorative things like pillows etc but not furniture.

    I have lots of rooms closed off.

    Yes, clear knobs would be nice.

    A very good morning to you all, I am a tad slow getting going today, after a late night from child minding my grandson James, arriving home and bed after 2am. A good time was had by all though, and it made a pleasant change to sit in front of a real coal fire at Caroline's house....

    Today I will complete the packing and do some last minute clothes washing, we are flying out on Tuesday @Patsy Faye so then I don my sombrero ;).

    Will read some posts now while I wake up with coffee [​IMG]

    Have a good Sunday...

    Good morning! Yesterday was a beautiful day weatherwise, took my grandson to the country club to hit balls and play a few short holes whatever that means.

    I just sat outside and waited for him...may do that today also. Starting tomorrow temps back in the 60's.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Good Morning Everyone. Yesterday it was 24 degrees when I got up, today it is 30 and yet it feels colder today then it did yesterday. For most of the week we will have temps in the 20's and 30's for a good part of each day and tomorrow there may be snow flurries, etc. For Lafayette these kinds of temperatures are just not normal and our old bodies are having a hard time adapting to these frigid temps. Our budget doesn't like the added expense of the higher heating bills either. In all the years we have lived here we have never had such a high heating bill as the one I opened up yesterday. I'm sure next month's will be even higher. Thank God we always set a little extra aside for "emergencies" such as this.

    I know many of you are experiencing much colder temps and I hope all of you making it through just fine. If you are used to these kinds of temps during the Winter where you live it would seem that it would not be such a shock to your system. We definitely are not used to this so it is a shock and just when I think I'm thawing out from one really cold spell...another one comes and puts me right back where I was. The blessing is that I haven't had any more trouble with my back like I did the very first time the weather started changing. Just a little stiffness in other joints off and on which I can definitely live with.

    May all of us have a pleasant and peaceful week.

    Good morning everyone! Where's @Holly Saunders?..don't think I saw her yesterday either.

    We are back in the 60's for the week.

    Just going to do a store run here, need a few things like lettuce for my grandson's sandwich for his lunch tomorrow.

    No school today because it's Martin Luther King Day.

    I said we could go see a movie but he said nothing good is playing. :)

    Good evening from Bracknell, Katya has just fed us with a lovely roast pork dinner, with rice and veg plus a lemon drizzle dessert, served with wine plus a large bottle of Leffe for moi, needless to say we are all drunk and very happy [​IMG]

    Everything is ready for our drive to Gatwick airport tomorrow morning at 7:30, it's around 30 miles from here, we leave the car on the drive of a Polish woman we know as usual, and catch the bus to the airport about 10 minutes away.

    Will wish you all well and catch up with you soon [​IMG]
