Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

Good morning all.

Not much going on with me today.  Yesterday I washed all my cushion covers and now have to put them all back on.

I've got a shopping delivery at midday and also waiting in for a couple of packages to be delivered.

Apart from that, nothing planned but I'm sure to find something to do.

            Good morning,   nice day here ,  my keyboard sliding shelf is broken, so much for that ,
            can't be fixed either , need a whole new desk , this one was a major job to put together 
            don't think I can do it now .... lol , if all fails ,  follow instructions .... lol,
           
            Hello Tara, good to see you, sorry you have been sick , feel better soon .

            Sandy; good to know your machine is OK, maybe is was just a signal for a unbalanced 
             load .    Did you get that mildew problem all fixed now  ?  I hate waiting on deliveries ,            but .....  we have to get things done any way we can .

Morning all and it's sunny and clear blue skies so it promises to be a nice day Smile I'm out most of the day helping out a family during school holidays.

Sandy glad to hear your washing machine is working fine again. Perhaps put a special power adapter in the power socket to prevent damage from power cuts/surges.

Hope you feel better soon Tara as sinus infections are no fun at all.

I had a nice day playing with my new kitchen toys. Yesterday was my 55th B-day & wow, I got a nice haul, lol. Roomie gave me a spiralizer attachment for my KitchenAid mixer & a mini food processor. My friends in the mountains gave me a 10 cup food processor. Cool right? My kitchen is shaping up! I had so much fun with the spiralizer that I ended up eating an entire zucchini today  tongue. It's so cool to watch the spirals being made. No more bean pastas for me!
The weather has been very nice and the yard was full of many different species of birds. I kept running to get my camera but as soon as I put my foot out the door, they all flew away. I tried to be sneakier every time they'd return but they were too smart for me, lol.

Glad you had a nice day Elaine and got some new toys you love.

Can't be fixed GERU? That sounds like a challenge to me. lol A new desk sounds a bit drastic if it's only the sliders that are broken.

Glad you're getting some decent weather after those storms Martha. Wet again here but at least the wind isn't as bad as it was yesterday. I'm taking it easy although I should tackle some housework. Still not feeling up to it though so it can wait. I'll probably go and visit my brother later if I can work up some enthusiasm.

Feel better soon Tara.

The wall is all dried out now Geru but now waiting for the chap to come in to clean it and paint it all.

I'm actually thinking of buying a small desk too.  It's a case of do I want a desk in absolute last bit of space I have or do I want shelving.  Still thinking on that.  I haven't got the money for either yet anyway so do have time to think.

I could do Martha.  Thanks for that idea.

I woke up bright eyed this morning for some reason, yet I didn't have a particularly good night.  My physical biorhythm must be just at the right place, lol.

I had a really quiet non day yesterday.  Still waiting in for those packages.

Don't hurt yourself. :p

I didn't visit my brother in the end. He already has a cough and his little grandson was going to be there so I decided not to risk passing on whatever this persistent bug I have is. I ended up being very lazy.

Done some laundry and washed the dishes and combed the cat. Taking a break for a coffee before I decide what's next.

Sandy you need a desk with shelves. lol

I certainly do need both desk and shelving, lol.  Just no bloody room for both.

Hope you are feeling better soon.  Shame you have to stay away from visiting Brother because of it, but I would be doing the same.

Just got back from a short walk with Louie.  I had to physically drag him out of bed to get him to go.  Lazy little shite.

Just listening to the news in the background and once again they are reporting that some foods still have too much salt in them.  Instead of worrying about the salt and sugar in foods that we have the choice to buy or not buy, perhaps they should be more concerned about the other shit they are adding such as aspartamine and other additives.  That's without the poisonous insecticides they are using, and the pumping our food with anitbiotics.  Salt and sugar is the least of our worries.

I'm sitting here thinking what else I can decorate my walls with.  At the moment I only have that All Things British frame on one of my walls.  I'm trying to now think of other things that would represent my personality.  Slowly my home is taking shape.

Hahaha your virgin eyes hey Dougie tongue Good to see you again.

Morning and another day, but hopefully the last, of paperwork. Just scanning and printing out the last copies and that should be it I hope.

Sunny day here but the wind is still biting cold. No idea what else I will be doing today ones I've dropped of that paperwork so playing it by ear.

Instead of a dining table I decided to have a desk in my small living room Sandy. I have an outdoor setting that I can always drag in if needed be but so far the desk is much better for me.
I used to have everything set up for visitors but when you move into a 1 bdr unit you have to compromise and I did. Of course I'm lucky in that most of the year I can eat outside if more people are here so that made that decision easier Smile.

Virgin eyes, My Arse! lol.

Life in a hot climate is so different from life in a cold.  So few days could we eat outside.  Even planning a BBQ is hard work because everytime we not only have to plan who to invite, what to eat etc, but also how to take it indoors if it might rain or such on our planned day.

I personally don't need a dining table as I probably only use it for a dinner party no more than twice a year.  So I have one as a personal preference.  It gives me extra chairs and also is very handy for card or game evenings.  And of course for me it is doubling up as a desk and also means I can sit at a table to eat.  I loath eating off of my lap.

But because it's also a desk for me, it always looks messy and has to be cleared off if I do invite anyone to dinner.

Good that you finally have all that paperwork sorted. Fingers crossed you can get it all through that sodding red tape.

I too have no actual plans for today, but then I hardly ever do.  I've sort of got into the habit of using the mornings to catch up on the "real" news from all over the world along with doing a bit of pottering inbetween, then the afternoon, reading or watching tele etc.  I do want to get the sewing machine out in the next couple of days, but I need to look on line and buy a few bits for that before hand.  Which I could do today.

Just had a long chat with my niece. I haven't seen her for a while so nice to catch up. She rang me from my brother's phone because I ignored the first number that called. She's changed her mobile and I didn't recognize the number and couldn't be bothered to pick up. lol My brother was coughing in the background so I think not going yesterday was the right choice.

One of the things I really enjoyed on holiday Sandy was wandering out early mornings and late evenings just sitting listening to the wildlife etc. If I did that here I'd either drown, freeze or get poisoned by the lorry fumes. I really envy people who live in a warm climate.

Nothing exciting going on here. Washed the bedding and done some ironing and other bits and bobs.

Good day everyone!
I'l do some baking today and look after the mint plants that I've got started. They have some nice roots shooting out today. I should probably check to see if they like to grow beside basil plants. I have read that mint plants will keep spiders away and since I'm arachnophobic that would be a good thing.
Super sunny and cool weather here today. Lots of Juncos and Northern Flickers in the backyard.

I'm just back from doing mine and mum's grocery shopping. Waiting to hear whether mum is going to have to be admitted to hospital. Her blood sugar level is through the roof again. Doc has given her extra insulin to try and bring it down so it's wait and see now. One brother has his grandkids until after 6pm, I still have a high temperature and feel terrible and another brother has shingles. My sister is working so I'm currently trying to find someone who can go with her if she does have to go in. Fingers crossed it won't come to that.

Oh my gosh Wendy, you're whole family is in a pickle at the moment. I hope your Mum doesn't have to go into hospital. It sounds like a nightmare for you.

I wish I could mess around with some baking as it would be fun, but if I did there is simply no one to eat it.

Good luck with the pancakes Geru.

I'm playing with my filofax bits and pieces today. I will have to get the laminator out later once I have sorted out and run off the bits I will need to laminate.

Pancakes did not turn out, have to find a better recipe .  Sounds like your family has health  problems  Wendy , feel better soon .

It never rains but it pours with our family. Believe it or not we're usually all pretty healthy considering we're aging. lol Luckily my sister wasn't working after all so she went and sat with mum for six hours. The nurse came back and checked the levels a few times and as it was coming down slowly they decided to wait and see in the end. I spoke to the nurse this morning and it's still going down so crisis averted for now thankfully.

Don't put up with the glasses if they're not right GERU. You'll have to live with them for two years if you do. Better to get them sorted straight away even though it's a pain.

My daughter and her partner are visiting later and staying overnight so I'm just going to plod through a few chores that can't wait before they arrive.

I had to take one pair of glasses back three times before they got them right. They were varifocals and they simply couldn't seem to line them up properly.

Pleased to hear your Mum is ok Wendy. Such a worry for you all.

I'm keeping busy today by doing a bit of housework, then having fun with my filofax bits for a while before doing another bit of housework and so on. I get so bored doing all the housework in one swoop. In other words I'm bloody lazy and there are better things to do than bugger around cleaning.

I've just heard the washing machine stop so must hang that lot up and then put in the second load. Then between playing I have to wash the kitchen and bathroom floors, hoover the sitting area, make the bed and disinfect the kitchen sides. Then the work part of my day is over. Oh, and I'm watching Judge Judy as I go.

My visitors have just left heading for something or other in Manchester so I'm having a quick coffee while I work up the enthusiasm to do something. So far I've showered and dressed and washed a few dishes and that's it. Still struggling to breathe properly when I exert myself even a little bit so my place may be staying dirty this week. Had a call from my sister yesterday saying she has a feeling she's got the same thing brewing. Itchy ears, sore throat, blinding headache and feeling dizzy. I really hope she doesn't get the rest of it too. It's a nasty little bug...

Let it stay dirty Wendy. There is always another day to have a clean up, when you are feeling more fit.

It's almost midday here and all I have done is showered, dressed and now sitting eating some marmarlade on toast. Nothing much else in the cupboard or fridge until the shopping arrives between 1pm and 2pm shortly.

Usually I try to leave the place tidy before bed so that at least if someone comes early it looks like I've done some work, but last night I couldn't be arsed so I still have washing to put away, washing up to do, make the bed and also tidy off, or up, my table and sideboard which are still full of my craft bits for my filofax that I was mucking about with yesterday.

After I've done all that in a bit I will then think about whether I actually want to clean through. It is Sunday after all and meant to be a day of rest, lol.
