Good Afternoon all.
Trying to find one photo in amongst lots of photos is really difficult. I eventually found it though.
Last night i picked a pumpkin flower and gave it to the torts. Later when i went back there was no trace of it anywhere. And it was the first time they had eaten it. Also keep in mind that they are so busy grazing in their outdoor enclosure that when they come back in at night they are not very hungry anymore. I was very impressed.
Well not much more going on. Except work has upgraded my computer so there are lots to check. To make sure everything is there.
Not see you all later.

I know you've done your daughter's room and the fireplace. What else is being done?
Office floor, walk in closet, moved and added doors and flooring in our room.

The fireplace isn’t even done[emoji53] We waited for the cabinets to come in and we were one short so waiting for it so we can build the platform for the kick plate. We also put recessed lighting in 3 rooms.

As much as I like the remodel jobs we are doing around here I’m tired of contractors in my house!
Right now I’m in my sons room hanging out.
My poor dogs have too stay outside, my cat is locked in a room and the little Chihuahua is with me because the front door has to stay open so the workers don’t scratch it up.
This guy comes and goes or shows up 3 and works 2 hours.
I’m over it!! His work is great but it’s slow!
I hate having the house knocked about. Knocking our kitchen and dining room together took foreevr!

Good afternoon all!

I started today with a wasp sting on my finger :( It was lurking on my dressing gown. I still haven't found the little #&£%*?* to murder it

I got stung on my hand last year while gardening and my whole arm swelled up. My doctor prescribed a second antihistamine that I could take alongside the one I had at home and also antibiotics.

I am taking both the prescribed antihistamine (I had some left) and the other again and this time the swelling is restricted to the finger so far. Hopefully thst is where it will stay.

Anyhow, I went to yoga thinking it would take my mind off the discomfort and we went for our favourite coffee-shop-cum-bakery afterwards. There's nothing like a cheese scone with marmite to take your mind off your hurts ;)

I hope you are all having a good Thursday

Well that just sucks!! But the yoga and cheese seem like good steps in a better direction.. hope the rest of the day makes up for the crappy start!

It was fine in the beginning but this guy really does help because my husband travels a lot so he just doesn’t have time to do all the work.

My husband is heading back to China for 23 days soon! It’s his 6th trip there this year.
Wow...i never did get to China in my USG travels - almost got to Hong Kong, but the proposed month-long trip got cancelled :-(

Does he speak any of the Chinese dialects?

Very cool!

Sounds good....do you do regular or Bikram? I did Bikram for two years....every other day.. loved it. I might start back up again once kayaking slows down.

G’dsy all

It’s hot humid and muggy (and very muddy) here today. Lots of rain this year has kept our garden a bit toooo wet and gushy.
But...our Royal Sultan Sully loves it! Too bad though, after today, temps are to drop 20 plus degrees and stay there.

Sounds like it might have been better to look for another house with the features you want! :p
