I cry happy and I cry sad now. I almost cried because I was happy you got your appointments. It is just the way I am.

gemstone

Don't cry...we were ready to crack the champagne! We can hardly believe it's only three days away. We phoned my sister and Ken told her to start up the beef stew! LOL ;DDD

My niece's husband introduced their little one to giant marshmallows just before he turned one...which became a treat of choice. And a little bribery now and then doesn't hurt...it prepares them early for working two long weeks to get a paycheque at the end of it.
I know that you'll have a wonderful time...but don't get too upset when Annabelle turns to Sherry...Sherry's had a year advantage over you. Do you think that you might spend Christmas together this year? So many plans can now be thought about... Drive safely. Hugs ❤️❤️❤️

canoekaw

@gemstone Yep, I am emotional. I almost cried when I read you got your appointments. I am very happy for you both. We will visit in our Co-In-Laws Home and return to our hotel at night. Sherry takes care of Annabelle while Katie teaches. I think Katie has had to return to the classroom at least that was the last plan I knew about. We will just sit and visit while Sherry cares for her. She does not get much interaction with others so this will be new. I was thinking a couple of little bits of chocolate might help. Bribery, I know. I am thinking of a Hershey's Hug cut up into 4 pieces.

gemstone

They visited yesterday afternoon when the sun came out and had some good, long drinks...hopefully they'll be around today, too. It dropped below freezing last night and it's supposed to be colder tonight...but only in the single digits celsius. They go into torpor at night when the temperatures drop.

We are going into the minus F numbers this week for night temps and nothing above freezing for our highs. Our lowest low will be -11F. I hope the little birds stay safe.

gemstone

We love them...and worry if they don't show up each day. The amazing thing is that they are mating right now so I guess "she" is nest building, and doesn't always appear at the feeder. You'd think they would have chosen warmer months for babies to arrive!

canoekaw

Those are some hardy hummingbirds. It is great you help them survive.

gemstone

We're in Vancouver, Canada, Marilyn. The Anna's hummingbird is here year round, so, while the bylaws in our complex won't allow seed feeders, we fudge by helping them. Last year we had five during the snow and freezing temperatures.

canoekaw

Hummingbirds? Where are you now?

gemstone

Yaaaaay! :)))

canoekaw

Yes she is. She is staying in a women's shelter and they have arranged very good counseling for her.

gemstone

Thank you, Marilyn...the same wishes...doubled...to you and yours! Your countdown has begun. Cheers! ❤️❤️❤️

P.S. Hope your daughter is hanging in there.

canoekaw

Have a Happy Healthy New Year.

gemstone

Thank you, Impie. I just left a note...too sad. ❤️❤️❤️

Impie

Thought you might like to know about this sad news! :(

gemstone

Aaahhh...the fun of playing and cuddling with the little ones and sending home for the night! LOL

On the road tomorrow...we have to leave...not only because we don't want to overstay our welcome...but because snow tires/chains are demanded on all vehicles from October 1st to March 31st in this neck of the woods.

Thanks gem, we are lucky on this small island to keep the covid cases down and isolated. What a nightmare for you all in a large country and I believe that Canada has done a for better job than most countries!

Banx is doing very well and Jenny is happy, together with her daughter they baby sit most weekends during the day and bring him here. He is so cute and thankfully will never remember this first part of his life. Your nephew and nieces being older probably have a tougher time, but kids are resilient and adapt quicker hopefully to all the new regulations.

You and Ken and rest of family take care. Lots going on with our property etcetera, so I do some large puzzles but not on as much.

gemstone

I was wondering about you...and Ted, Robbie...glad he missed you. We were so lucky to get our trip to PEI, Cape Breton, Fort Louisbourg, and Nova Scotia in last year! As Ken and I both have compromised immune systems we have stayed in since St. Patrick's Day except for groceries...which Ken does. I've only been out 14-15 times...twice to the dentist, a couple of hair cuts, and once to get my picture taken for the renewal of my driver's licence...and yes, it's ugly as per usual! Right now we're at my sister's...where they're isolated all year 'round. We stopped twice only for gas and washroom breaks...using masks, paper towels on handles, no touch soap and water, and hand sanitizer back at the car. Touch wood!!! Our covid cases are rising now in BC in the 20-40 bracket thanks to the bar crowd. Bars and restaurants can no longer serve liquor after 10 p.m. and there are now costly fines...up to $10,000 for some offences when breaking the distancing rules, etc.

On the lighter side, how's the newest addition doing? I do wonder how this lockdown with no group playing, touching, or hugs is going to affect our four year old great nephew and his two year old twin sisters. Take care and say hi to Jenny. ❤️❤️❤️

Hi gem. Thank you for your comment on Suzy's puzzle, our water tanks are full and no storms on the horizon..........YET! Hurricane season lasts into November, so anything could happen. Teddy is now over Nova Scotia and 1,000 miles in diameter! We were so lucky not to get a direct hit. Paulette a week ago did most of the damage, but luckily our homes are strong and able to withstand a pounding. Hope you both are well and keeping safe. It is a different world out there now and not a great looking future for a while! Hopefully next year will brighten up.

gemstone

WOW!!! Good for you, Ardy! A gold star for persistence!

It's sunny here but the breeze can still be nippy at times. Couples walking along the river are still bundled up. I haven't been out since March 16th. We are still being warned to stay home and social distance if out walking but we just might be starting to plateau...although they say the virus will be around for a couple of months more at least...or maybe even until a vaccine is developed. You stay safe, too, my friend. ❤️❤️❤️

ringleader

Ordinarily I would not solve a single puzzle with this many pieces but these are not ordinary times. ☺ Weather today has been also as strange - rain early this morning, sun, clouds, thunderstorm around noon, sun, clouds, sun and strong winds. I wanted to take some pictures of the tulips and the dogwood but it's so windy I gave up. We are under stay home direction through the end of the month I think. Virginia has already closed schools for the rest of this school year. I won't be surprised if Maryland does the same.

Thanks for this wonderful puzzle, Faye. Take care, Stay safe. ♥

gemstone

We were told repeatedly that there was no need for hoarding but our usual supermarket still has no TP when my husband goes there. I'm sure glad that we ALWAYS have two large packages from Costco in our storage unit. We don't go to Costco often so we always stock up on peanut butter and TP when we do visit. We haven't been to Costco since way before the crisis as we daren't risk the crowds. I know that they are trying to control how many are in the store, etc. but the Costco that we prefer has a lot of dense, dozy shoppers...they stop in the middle of the aisle, chat on their phones instead of pushing their buggies, etc...it's frustrating at the best of times so hopefully, we can wait awhile.
Glad to hear your curve is flattening...like you we're still told to stay home if possible. Our Public Health Minister does encourage people to get out for a walk but social distancing is still required. They have just closed our huge Stanley Park to cars so that cyclists will ride on the road and leave the seawall to pedestrians...allowing people more space to keep the mandatory 2 metres apart. Stay safe. ❤️

calluna

That all sounds wonderfully positive, Faye. Hope it continues that way. Doing fine so far. Did some shopping last Saturday, first time I'd left the house in two weeks...Total Wine was easy with few people in the store. Regular grocery was a strain...trying to keep distance, not finding what I wanted, limits on other items...was glad to get back home. Encouraging signs regarding our curve but also a cautionary note, so we'll see. In the meanwhile spring colours (and sunshine!) sure have a way of cheering things up. :-DD

gemstone

Thank you, Nancy. Sunshine here, too, and these beauties thrive in it. They are lasting really well and add such a splash of colour to our balcony...you can't help but visit them frequently throughout the day just to admire them.

Touch wood, we're still safe...and it looks like our curve is starting to plateau. Blessings on you and yours. ❤️❤️❤️

calluna

Gorgeous! Blue skies, sunshine, crisp but due to warm a bit and wonderful birdsong. Hope you're having the same, Faye....and that you and yours remain well and safe! :-))
