Ok, already I am missing Wendy. She is always here before me each morning, lol. I hope she is having a great time though.

WTG on the walk Martha. I can't wait to be able to walk further. I only walked as far as my chemist and back the other day and my insides ached for the rest of that day and the following day. Fingers crossed that in November they take this bloody stent out of me and leave it out.

Yes, Geru, because I can't walk far and give Louie decent walks at the moment I take him around the block several times a day where he can stop and meet people and get lots of attention instead of lots of walking and sniffing.

I hope you feel better soon Beckea.

That's a lot of people Keri. I don't like crowds at all, but I do often attend a large Guy Fawles night or a Mayday event if the rest of the family happen to be going to one.

Washing, hoovering and shoping on line for me today.

Still very  overcast with smoke filled skies, sun slightly visible though through the haze cover , but appears red  . Temperatures are down to 15c right now . Was 13c by late afternoon , had to wear a light jacket to go to the store  ,  a sharp drop in temps . But still no rain , dry as bone . Smoke drifting up here now from Oregon fires too ... oh dear  ,  I think all the rain is bottled up in the hurricanes that are raging .



 Got to  bake a banana loaf today, and make it to the village for my walk as usual  ,



Kerri:   wow oh wow, what a crowd in Minnesota state fair , you would never see me there , lol



Beckea:  hope your asthma is getting better .



got to run .

Temp here is 61f - 16c - I always know when the Autumn has arrived because my feet start getting cold when indoors.  It's already started raining gently, so it looks like we are in for another wet day.

I must buy some new baking tins.  Banana bread sounds nice.

I had a Doctors appointment this morning because when I made it not only am I due for a blood test but I also wanted to speak to her about a problem I had.  Problem has now gone so don't see the point in going all that way just to pick up a blood test form when I could cancel the appointment early this morning and get the receptionist to get the form for me for me to pick up at my convenience.

11pm last night I was cleaning out the dogs anal glands would you believe.  They were really irritating him and I didn't want him to go through the night like that for me to wait to take him to the pet parlour later today.  I wont know if I have managed to do them ok until he gets up this morning.  He is still sound asleep, lazy little sod.

I never did get my washing done yesterday, must do it today.  I did get the shopping ordered though for delivery this evening.  An evening delivery is a lot cheaper than a day one.

Well, the sky seems to be clearing some , 17c right now ,had a couple of showers between last evening and this morning . Slightly overcast , so that's good , keeping it cool, but  fires keep raging so I am reading .



I heard some firecrackers going off last evening , can't believe the trouble they could cause with all this dry weather , is Halloween in the air already ?  Lets see what happens this evening , it's Friday  !! 



Have things to get done , see you later folks , have a great Weekend .

Lovely and sunny outside for me today, but rather chilly. It's getting very close to jacket weather.

I got my lights in the washing machine finally yesterday and they are all now dry. Today is the darks.

Had a message from my Jess yesterday to tell me that as soon as she gets back from Barcelona she will pick Louie up and take him for a nice long walk. I feel quite sorry for him now just having me for company with just the odd person dropping in and out. He got so used to living with all the girls for that 18 months while I also lived with them.

Jess looks gorgeous Sandy Smile and I see she also has her eye brows so big. My Natasja has done that too but I don't like it as I find it too big really. Another trend among the young ones lol.

She used to have them bigger than that but has toned them down a bit as she has gotten older. We are so used to seeing her with them that it wouldn't be the same Jess without them now, lol.

I remember that my Mother always penciled on her eyebrows. Although her's were never as big as they do them now.

The latest craze here is having them tattooed bigger ... yikes.

Lunch time already and after having slept in I am still in my pj's hahahaha.
Hopping in the shower soon and then make my lunch and sit down to watch a movie I think.

Spend an hour on the phone with Catherine; as she was filling out her forms for the US visa as she is going for a holiday there next month. I hope there is anything left in Florida because I know that is one of her stops during the 1 month trip.

Jess messaged me late last night to say she was back in England. She asked if I would go out to lunch with her and Aimee today and then back to mine for a while before she, Jess, has to start work at 5.30pm. I don't know where or what kind of lunch they have planned. Although I don't think they have actually planned anything yet until I said yes or no.

I'm not going to church again this morning. Quite honestly I'm finding that church going isn't really my cup of tea. Maybe if it was an afternoon or evening meeting and not early mornings it might be different, but getting ready and dragging out early quite honestly is a bit of a chore. I don't enjoy it that much that I want to set alarms to wake me up in time to get ready. I'm too sluggish in the mornings nowadays.

A while ago Jess bought me one of those picture frames that have several - 9 in my case - photo size frames within it. I've had it tucked away for ages thinking about what I could do with it. I'm not one for having family photos on my wall, so I thought last night of printing out some images from the web onto photo print paper and creating something different. I'm thinking maybe something either historical, as in British history or something patriotic as in 1950s nostalgia because the 50s was the decade I was brought up. Or I could do sepia Victorian photos I suppose. Still thinking on that one.

Hello Everyone.

Sandy, Jess is lovely!

Went to the Emoji movie with two of my granddaughters yesterday.
It wasn't a movie I would choose but they enjoyed it
so that's what matters.

I may take them to a Lebanese festival today.
I took them last year and they enjoyed themselves.
The food was yummy. I like the stuffed grape leaves.

I should do some laundry later today
but I'm thinking I will skip any work today
and just play with them. :0)

Hope everyone has a good rest of the day!

Good morning everyone,
The temps have cooled down here too quite a bit and am so not complaining, gloating maybe. lol

LOVE what you have done to the skin in here Sandy, it's gorgeous with the floral background and the daisy flowers in the post/reply.

Now I can only image what your autumn skin will look like.  hug

PostSubject: Re: September Chit Chat   11/09/17, 10:02 am

Thanks Kerri.  I also think she is gorgeous but then I'm bias.

I'm not usually a flowery type person Marie, but once I found that pretty lilac and green image on the background I sort of built it from that.

Hopefully you can start breathing a bit easier now then Geru.  Those fires must have been a bugger.

Well, as for me.  I went on line late last night to pay my credit card and found that my bank account has been  used once again.  This time someone has been having a field day with it.  Two google apps have been taking money out each month since May, and then someone has bought something twice from a company in Belgium.  The apps they are paying for are both dating apps the bank fraud people told me.

It's really strange how it's happening because the payments that were going out monthly were going out on a regular basis as if it would be a direct debit, but no direct debit (obviously) shows in my account for them, so they must actually be manually paying for the app as it goes.

The bank have put a stop on the card now so I will have a new number on the new one which will stop whoever has the details from using it again.  But it's so inconvenient having to make these phone calls and fill in police reports and so on.

From now on I'm going to write down to who and how much I pay out each and every time I use the damn card so I can get an idea how someone gets my details.

I'm thinking that the only time my details are given over manually to a physical person is when ordering takeaways via telephone.  Other than that, when I buy something on line it all goes through an electronic system where no actual person has access to it.  From now on if I buy a takeaway to be delivered I'm paying cash at the door.

  We have a beautiful sunny morning with blue skies and a few clouds here and there,

temps sitting at 19c  rising to 22c today, so it's going up again .



I was totally tired out after the walk to the eye doctor and back .The doctor was new to me , and so had to do quite a few tests  , even took pictures of the back of your eyes, the flash ls directly in to your eyeball , it leaves you blind I tell you .... lol , All the girls that worked there are Chinese , and have a heavy accent .   They demonstrated a new gadget to me ,( to use instead of glasses )  that is a digital magnifier , great gadget , you can do all sorts of things with it ...but ....it's not for distance reading , only close ups, and very expensive .  Think I will visit the drug store to see what they got .... lol .


I find the daisy border here very pretty, but it hides the writing in that left corner  while you're doing it . It is so pretty, and thought it might transfer on to the board , but I see it does not .



Jessi looks  very pretty, lovely main of hair  to go with the eyebrows, and yes, the girls now even do squiggly  eyebrows , ,,,,, OMG , they look ugly I think .



I have gone back to paying in cash or check , it's a frightening story to read your write up Sandy  about what  happened to you . I am sure you have read about Equifax being hacked in to just lately . Crazy scary  world we live in .


Time for a coffee .

Sandy that is horrible and so sorry to hear this happened to you again!

The only way I pay for things online is if I can use PayPal as the one doesn't need to give out the credit card details.
I do order regularly from a company and have to use my credit card but never had problems with that one.

Bugger ... was going to do some washing but it just started raining.

Fingers crossed those fires are under control now Geru.

You have reminded me Geru, I must make an appointment to have my eyes tested too.

Yeah, I know of the problem with having the image in the text box. I'm trying to find a different way of doing it so that the text isn't also faded as the image is.

Well, as you know Martha, last time I thought it was through using Paypal that I last got hack so stopped using it for a long time. But the bank tells me that Paypal is very safe.

The bank have now also paid me back for that which was stollen via the google apps, but google now have to investigate to check it isn't me using the apps.

I am sure it's an individual person and not a big con, as it was last time, because of the way it's being done and where the money was going.

Have to go to the chemist today to pick up my script and then get a couple of bits of shopping.

Nice day out  18c, some sun , some clouds, very fall like  weather , almost turned on the heat this morning , but put on warm joggers instead .






I try not to use my Google browser to often any more , cause Google knows everything .. lol, it follows your every move !!  Google will investigate about  the apps being used by WHO, lets hope it does not turn out to be YOU. Cause that would mean identity theft .   Seeing they used the money to get on dating sites , well, just think  , dating sites hold a lot of credit card info. Lets hope you are right , and that this is not part of that Equifax hack in . I am sure that is what Google is mostly concerned about .


I am off to get my hair cut this afternoon .

Good afternoon ! Smile
I've been trying to have a relaxing morning but it didn't work out that way. Too much housework to get done. I was hoping I'd be able to get out shopping on my scooter later but I've had pinched nerves in my back and sciatic for a few days and even though I woke today feeling better, after the housework I can feel it starting up again. I'll have to wait for Roomie to drive me to the stores when he gets home from work. 
Jess is gorgeous! Nice looking drinks too, LOL
I'm sorry to here your account was hacked again Sandy. What an awful feeling that must be. It's not happened to me yet, but there's rarely more than $30 in my bank account & I have no credit cards. Smile
The smoke has cleared up here & now we are having some rain and mostly overcast. Geru I hope things are clearer for you too. I'm not sure where you live but it must be close to me, by your weather reports.
Anyway, I'm about to put in a load of whites then lay down for a while.
Everyone have a gorgeous day!

Sorry to hear you are in pain again Elaine.  It's a bummer.

I can tell the weather has moved into Autumn as I have woken up late today and very sluggish.  My energy is at a very low peek today.

Aimee came over for a couple of hours yesterday with her boy friend Zarron.  He is home from Iraq for 2 weeks.  Although Im not sure how much they are actual boyfriend and girlfriend anymore or just friends.  Aimee's life seems very complicated as far as fellas go.

I've got all the photos for my picture frame sorted and printed off, now just need to put them all in the frame and get it on the wall.  I finally decided to go with all things British, mostly from the 1950s when Elizabeth came to the throne and I was growing up as a child.

Raining again today after a really bad night of howling wind, electric storm and more rain.

Need to give the kitchen and bathroom a good scrub down this morning.

Not nice at all Elaine and sorry to hear you suffer with sciatica too.

Sandy I have been so slack and still haven't sorted out my picture frame! I can't believe how blaze I've gotten with those kind of things.

I've had an off day yesterday and today was running around for Catherine's graduation. No more University for her lol and I am so proud of her.

i did have a good day today and went out shopping on my scooter. It was OK and I got what I needed. I'm quite sore after that though. Now I'm downing a vodka & Perrier so that I can make Roomie a nice dinner. He's been bummed about me going vegan cuz I rarely make anything he's likely to taste LOL. So special treat for him tonight is Wild salmon, basmati rice cooked in chicken stockand his fave muchrooms & prawns with (I  insist) salad on the side Smile He's so fricken spoiled! Sometimes I wwonder if the only reason he invited me to live with him is because I am such a good chef!!!! LOL

That sounds nice Elaine.

I hope Catherine's graduation is a great affair Martha. I can only imagine how much you must be swollen with pride. I know I would be.

I've got loads of silly little jobs to do on my list today. How many I will bother to get done I don't know, but I will give it a shot to do them all.

Lol Elaine that dinner sure sounded yummy Smile

Yep very proud of Catherine and her achievements Sandy. Not just the fact that she studied and finished University but the fact she did that while working full time!

Wow those fires still burning Geru ... so sad to hear.

Catching up here this morning as I ended up in hospital for a few hours last night. Explained what happened on my board.
