Sun - happy belated birthday...another milestone, to look back from and count all the blessings received, reminisce about the moments which made us smile and made life worth living, ponder all the lessons learnt, appraise all the challenges we overcame to make it to this point...bless you.
i will come back later, some chores call which cannot be postponed. i read and enjoyed all the posts and our Porchies doings.
Its a little later...i see Mikies been in...
Hello Mikie - Can you (or anyone else) move Suns last post with the crab cakes recipe here? Thank you.
Mikie, i caught bits of one episode of Bob Hearts..show once, both DD and myself laughed so hard at the antics of Abhisholas parents making plans for when Abhishola lands Bob, and this was in the beginning when the two just met. Plans for when they would be living with Bob and their daughter. I think we can relate here where parents are so elated when their offspring marry into better circumstances than their own.
A boy working in the US or UK is a big catch for prospective brides and their family. Prestigious, like. Of course, now that girls are also educated as much as boys, there have been many boys who married a Nepalese girl working abroad and accompanied them abroad.
Thats a shame you could not wear your beautiful butterfly dress. i surely wish that rogue shoulder would not act up. Dont think too much about the delay of 5he tote bags. I was watching a tv programme where the motivational speaker was saying ‘dont dwell on negative thoughts, its not the 5houghts but the power we give them by hanging onto them.’ i know easier said than done.
But worth trying by distracting yourself. i cut an imaginary cord when an un0leasant thought comes up. Cut the cord connecting me to the negative incident. i then imagine electric violet light filling me up. And zap that un0leasant incident with 5he same. Electric violet light is that light which one sees when a welding flame is put on at a mechanics or some sort. A Pranic Healing trick.
Sun - so sorry you were so ill on your birthday. Maybe you can give yourself a really nice pamper me day in lieu of it. Just eat something you really like, buy yourself something nice, work on a project you really love. i did notice as we get older, we dont want things so much as have a nice time.
I got a message the other day from a friend who asked me what plans i had for Christmas. I think she felt lonely in the middle of her housework & wanted to chat. i told her, none. Its so cold in the evenings, for me i prefer snuggling down, watching a show or reading.
i hope you are feeling a little better now.
Granni - My phones have scratches all over, i aim to carry on until the apparatus falls apart, heh heh. i would be in big trouble if i were living there, since i dont drive. I would have to depend on Uber or taxis or public transport.
Actually, i wouldnt mind it. Compared to our transport, your buses, and the subways are such luxuries, oh my! i remember being so happy riding on the NY subway and Boston ones and the bus. Well, the NY subway was a bit seedy but efficient.
Barry - relieved to know the fires have been doused and the surroundings have returned to normal. Well, of course its gonna take a longer time for 5he trees and shrubs to grow back where they burnt down..my heart aches for them. And so for all the people who lost their homes and their neighbourhoods as 5heyknew it.
5hey just showed Sydney swathed in a thick smog of smoke from the raging fires nearby. What a sight. One couldnt see The Sydney Opera House or any other landmark.
Of course, New Zealands island volcano just had to erupt and take 5he lives of several people right about now when other things are going on in other parts of the world.
Looks like a prep for Armageddon if you ask me.
I hope that young doctor can help you with your CTS. For some reason, i feel a funny ache in my heart when i see young doctors, vets starting out.
i dont know whether its because i remember being young once and starting work or feeling sad because i hope they navigate through lifes challenges okay and make it thru all right or whether its happiness and pride because they were brave enough to take on such difficult professions. i shrink from seeing pain and suffering and these people take it on as part and parcel of their life.
Are Lenny and Romeo behaving? im making sure i givethe dogs well cooked warm soupy rice and chicken with veggies 5hrown in 5o keep them warm in 5his chilly weather. i notice doggy appetites just increase when its cold. Its easier to call them back into 5he house too when its time for bed.
Rock - i looked up Tower of Treats. im laughing at your brother ordering the TOT for you without knowing what he was sending you. It sounds like such a man thing to do. I cant imagine any of us ladies here doing 5he same. We would look up, size up, debate the pros and cons of minutely and 8n detail before sending a gift. We would extract every ounce of pleasurejust choosing the gift before we actually signed for its procurement. Hahahaha.
Today was a stay at home day. Cleaning, doing odds and ends. i dont know how the day went. I made a vegetable curry which called for cashew nut and peanut paste among a host of other 8ngreediments. I was hoping it would be worth the while. It did not disappoint.
Love to Dmc, Star n all.
