Ladies, if this is a duplicate just excuse me, I don't think I hit the Add Comment button on my previous note.  Here it is......

Ladies, I was thinking we should have a Progressive Dinner.  We could start at Barbara's for our appetizer of homemade soup and biscuits (take along a jar of homemade sauerkraut and head of to Ruthann's for a nice glass of home canned tomato juice and some of her Bratwurst to go along with the Sauerkraut from Barbara's, off to my house for my delicious Onion Casserole and then off to Kathy's for dessert, (if I am given my choice I vote for Pie).  Janice could just come and join the party as she is not allowed to bring anything on the plane.  What do you think, is that a good idea????..........Well, we can dream, can't we!!!!

I have been thinking Ladies, we need to have a progressive dinner.  We could start at Barbara's and have some good homemade soup and biscuits for our appetizer (take a jar of that sauerkraut with us), travel on to Ruthann's and have some fresh canned tomato juice and Bratwurst with the homemade Sauerkraut we brought from Barbara's.  I would provide my delicious Onion Casserole and Kathy could provide dessert, (would be one of her choice, however, I vote for pie) and Janice could just come as she has to travel and they would not let her bring anything on the plane.  Does that sound like a winner, Ladies.......well, we can dream can't we??????

thankyou for the nice compliments

a maid would be nice, ha ha, maybe have DH wear an apron. ha ha

am going to for sure not strain it, nothing helps the pain, not heat, cold or rest on pillow or any painkillers. do not like the pain, so am doing as doc says

you can have the rain, had enough here, bring on the sunshine,, I wore my Janice socks two days last week, seems if feet are warm, are warm

my DH loves sauerkraut, never tried making his own, he did can some tomato juice sunday all by himself

Hi All.

Ruthann your chickadees are very cute. They are one of my favorite teeny birds. Their call sounds like they are saying their name.  So sorry you hurt your arm. I'm sure your DH will love helping out withthose chores... if not, he can hire a maid for you. LOL

I tried out my Janice socks for the first time this Fall season. It's been so chilly and I can't justify turning on the furnace this early in the season. I am tempted though. Warm clothing seems to be enough for now.

We had rain again this AM. I cut all those cabbages and started some sauerkraut fermenting. I don't know if it will work since it's so chilly. I do like the homemade sauerkraut much better than the store bought so I'm hoping.

Here's hoping the Kindle recharges well for you. Try going in and clearing your cache and cookies when it comes back on, too. That helps when mine gets slower.

I love your work Ruthann hope you will soon be okay letting your DH do more won't hurt him lol

Yes i am glad that the kindle seems to be okay will know later when i turn it on now it been off

I have started a pair of socks using one of the newrange  yarns it is one that has cotton in so it feels different knitting it so will be interested in how it looks & knits up from what i seen so far it nice but certainly different to other yarns that feel more woolly if you know what i mean

Well it been having some heavy down pours here hope you will have a good day

Hugs Janice

Good Morning, Beautiful morning here, however, cooling off ever so slowly but just enough to let us know that Fall is on the way.

Janice, Glad you got your Kindle working, seems as if reading it helps you fall off to sleep.  Hope you have a good week.

Ruthann, So sorry to hear of your problem with your Rotary Cup, I have hear that that is very painful.  Never had it happen to me but DD had a problem and had to have surgery. Take it easy, I know DH will help you with your usual chores, keep us posted.  Love your Chickadees, so attractive.....your usual "good work".

Have a lovely, productive day everyone.  Hugs!!!

no rain her till weekend expected again, was one chilly weekend, hurt my rotary cup, so off to chiropractor again, did get a chickadee bird wallhanging done before the pain got to be too much, got hardly any sleep all weekend as was hurting a lot, so was told 2 weeks of no lufting, straining left arm, going to be hard to do for sure, guess my DH has to take trash out, unload the washer and dryer, do the dishes, etc that are too heavy

Good Morning

I hope you had a good week-end

Been reading & my Kindle

started to act up it was if it was

updating it then when i turned it

on when i went bed it but wouldn't turn on

so this morning i tried it &

it had a battery & lead showing it

needs charging but wouldn't do anything else

i put it on charge & since then it did turn on

but normally it does come up with a message

if the battery is low so i will see how it is

when charged i do have an extended warranty

so i am not worried

It is raining here not a nice day

Not sure if i will get the washing done

as while i do have a tumble dryer not

all can be dried so not sure

Well I hope you have a Blessed day

Hugs Janice

Comment by Janice Aitkens yesterday

Good Morning

I am better today with getting more

sleep last night i took a sleeping tablet

so went to bed at 10 then after reading

turned light off 10.30 & work around

4 so had a good bit in one go went

back to sleep which i woke a few times

but i feel so much better today

I finished the book The Amish

Blacksmith & i started a Mills & Boon book

by Betty Neels i love her books i have

read a lot in book format but am finding that

they not that cheap on the kindle compared

to others & knowing that they are old books

also they only do 1 book where in book format

there are some in collections so you get more than

1 story in a book

Thinking of different items that could be done

for gifts i think i will have to start to write them

down so i don't forget lol

Well wishing you a Very Blessed Sunday

Hugs Janice
