    Good afternoon/evening all - it's been pretty quiet in here today.
    I hope Yvonne, Ray and Linda are feeling better and that everyone else is well.
    I had a better night last night thankfully so hoping my cold is on it's last legs.
    We have a weather warning for heavy rain again tomorrow with highs of 5C/40F - if I was a tort I would hibernate!
    Thank goodness the weekend is just around the corner!

    I'm sitting here in my recliner, trying to get comfortable, with a package of frozen peas on my back and this on my lap:

    I have the sniffles. I think a warm evening with Hot tea and soup is in order for all of us.

    Did you ever get to eat those bananas that we saw on your trees?

    Aww I just love the look of her. She is gorgeous and I am so jealous. Scooby does that...well sort of. Whenever I give Milly attention or the torts then he starts moaning at Me (barking) I am sure he is trying to tell me to stop fussing over them and to only pay attention to him. They are just so cute and wiggle their way into our hearts very quickly.

    The banana stalks filled up and ripened, but very mini bananas. Soooo, i think the ones I have are more ornamentsl than meant to eat.

    Aaahh pity. Although mini bananas are also good if you can eat them, that way you know that you won't over eat them. And they should just be the right size to add to your cereal in the morning.

    Happy Thursday Everyone,
    I have not gone to gym this whole week. Oh boy when I finally get back there next week, I will pay for it. But I just don't want to push it, considering that I was so ill and throwing up etc on Sunday. I am still getting bouts of nausea and my husband reckons I must be pregnant. I told him he is totally mad. I could not imagine trying to bring up another kid at the age of 46. That is just crazy. It is fine if you are a granny because you can just hand them back to the parents, but being the parent at that age. uh uh...no ways hose... carry on dreaming.
    Anyway enough about me. how is everybody doing?

    Yvonne and Heather keep those cute and cuddly pics coming, I love little baby animals. And since I don't have any, I will have to live vicariously through you two ladies.

    I guess I’m on a bit earlier than normal. Wifey has to make a trip to Virginia to take her mom to a doctor visit. I got orders last night to wake her up & have coffee ready EARLY so she can get on th Washington beltway before lots of traffic.

    I almost feel 'normal' this a.m. Just a bit stiff (?), just something there to remind me to not over do it.

    I'm considering setting up at a local "trade days" to see if any of my artwork will sell. This would be the first time I have actively tried to sell my art. It makes me nervous..
    I haven't called to rent a spot yet, cause I know that once I do I'm committed to putting myself out there
