Good morning,

@Frozenoem, Just  read you went over 20 hours without coffee,  Must have been awful.  @n566192l  So sorry you are having continued health problems.  I have not had an opportunity to read this board for a while!

 

No good news from me either.  Mom calling me from upstairs every 15 minutes during the day for the last 7 days or so.  I use the lift chair now to go up and down much of the time because the situation is so out of control.  The last 2 nights she started calling me in the middle of the night 2 to 3 times per night. 

 

I am thankful for good health so that I can keep up this schedule.  I really have to talk to myself not do get too far down mentally.   I try to keep in mind that this is the new normal, have to get used to it.  Still do not know if mom's companion will be returning to help out in some capacity.  Probably will not know until the middle of December when her 90 days of rehab that Medicare allows will be over.  I hope I can hang on and not go crackers till then.  If it is determined that companion cannot return I can look at moving to homestead sooner than expected.

Hi, everyone. Happy two days before Halloween or Happy Halloween Eve Eve.

Cannot believe you have snow already, @DaveMcK , but then again I remember several years ago we almost didn't have Halloween because we had a blizzard type event and lost power for a couple of days right before Halloween.

Today I had some friends over for bagels and coffee. They came to see my dolls all dressed for Fall and Halloween.They brought the bagels and spreads and I supplied the coffee and a fruit salad.

It meant the house had to be neat and clean, so I spent a lot of time getting ready and now I'm good to go for the holidays. No major or heavy stuff left to do; just normal cleaning.

It's kind of rainy today, but mild. The bad news is that Halloween is looking to be rain most of the day. Cat Sad Poor kids!

Happy Haunting! N.

Re: Bird strikes on glass what worked for me was trimming vegetation back, both at house and camp.

 

Low e glass reflects less and screens covering entire windows with a gap of 2" beneath so they could bounce unharmed or at least recover before flying away unharmed.

 

Doubt if that totally makes sense for an explanation so, a link.

Rehoming happens to all of us at some point, had to do and saw no other alternative - really.

 

Perhaps someone could foster until your healed or better capable of  There are breed specific fosters available, google search or ask.

 

When my time came it was a gut wrencher but, after 12 years with same breed specific rescue, a phone call and backup plan happened.

 

Chelli is showing progress and still happy in VA with Leo's.She's adopted and getting many runs per day.


IF I ever improve again, who knows.

Dave,

I know I need new glasses, but I can see the pictures . I did see snow, in the pictures. Great pictures ❣️ each and every one of them. 

I do have a question for you anyone, who thinks they may be able to help me.

Here goes, over the past few days, tiny birds have been hitting my glasses window. There's no cats in the area, my windows are not to clean. Lol any ideas on how to make this stop. I am afraid my dogs are going to hurt the stunned birds. 

Just raining here and maybe for days. I didn't forget about the boxes, I was in the hospital for a few days. New medication just didnot work out. So, I have to try another one. Also, I am trying to re home my 3 🐕. Working to get them placed before I have another surgery on Dec 6.  Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your day. I can't believe some of you have snow. Please stay safe and warm and dry.

           Nancy

Morning Tuesday 48* cloudy and looks like it will stay in 40's, with a warm up for 2 more days😇.

 

Which I hope to take advantage of. Have marine epoxy standing by for tomorrow, and a garage door.

 

Today is merely uploading more tunes to phone from external hard drives.Creedence, Queen, Iron Butterfly and Doobie Bro's, seem to counteract my balance issues. Or at least some of their songs, tend to vibrate bones in ear for better.

 

Now coffee is calling.

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this snow covered Tuesday 2019. We had our first snow fall late last night and early this morning which amounted to about 4" of very fluffy snow. It is projected to be mostly melted by sundown to night. The melted snow will be the needed moisture our 120 new flowering bulbs will need to get ready to bloom next Spring. 

Hoping everyone has a great day today.

@catwoman500 

 

Next 4 bookings free, they'll love the 4-hour drives in two weeks🤣.

 

Only need to wait 3 weeks for new appointments but, without caffeine in my system Froze tends to sound like agitated sailor.

 

4 Cups later my mood has improved. Wonder if I can get an off switch on my mouth, few bombs dropped after calling specialist.

 

X years with same livery , I did snap! First bad screwup they've had, really didn't want to break in new service.

 

Now, I just need a stagger to feel better, I hope.😎

@Frozenoem ...Oh, no! That is totally unacceptable! I sure hope you don't have to wait another 15 months to reschedule that appointment! That car service sounds very irresponsible. Cat Frustrated

 

Very chilly here this AM, but it is nice and sunny now and has warmed up to 68. Cat Very Happy

Had to go to the Dollar Store today to get some extra Tootsie Pops to make sure I have enough for the Trick or Treaters. So many Christmas items already displayed! Between the retailers and the Hallmark channel pushing the season, it's no wonder we have no holiday spirit when the holidays finally roll around.  It's nuts thatThanksgiving is all but forgotten.

Enjoy life!
