What’s on your mind?

Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! That was hilarious, Suz…! ;-)
aloha tut — so glad you liked it. are ya on the mt tonight?
Fast and clean, awesome.
i heart new machines… what didja get?
Now I’m disappointed in Stephen Colbert…
Congrats on the new computer, bgrothus!!!
Sure am, Suz…! I was outside until this rolled in…! It was awesome watching the thunder heads…! ;-)
Dearie, tried the onion soup today. Must have done something wrong. I think I’ll put it on a roast though.
hey loohoo — why are ya disappointed in stephen colbert? how’s socal tonight?
i love watching storms approach… is one of the things i miss about living on the coast
Sorry it didn’t work for you, Loo Hoo. Was it burned? You might try the crock pot method. I usually keep a pretty close eye on the onions as they are browning.
hey dearie — how was your day?
Shit, but I gotta download and upgrade stuff, can’t see/hear the tune, shit.
Ima mac/apple girl, laptop, cheapest I could get.
sweet! the adobe flash etc …. all those addon’s take do take time….
Hey Suz…. good day…. got my Christmas packages mailed out. Having faraway family forces me to get on schedule. Enjoying a pretty quiet week. Don’t work again until next Tuesday. I’m enjoying the time to get some things done.
yay! its so good when ya can cross something off that ‘to do’ list…. besides getting things done, you gonna go for walks on the beach and do nothing magnificently?
peace love and understanding
willie the greatest gift
Good evening, Suz, and buenas noches, lln pups.
hey past — how’s utah tonight?
I am still trying to get caught up with birthdays that were months ago, how did u get xmas done so fast?
i’ve only got the tree up — haven’t gotten a single present yet
Utah is fine tonight, overcast. high 30′s. I’m fine tonight too, first day back to feeling human after a case of food poisoning (I think) over the weekend, glad that’s over.
How do you like it? Hope you have a little space left. . .
oh yuck! i saw on the local news the flu is starting early this year
i trust all you pups have gotten your flu shots this year? *hands on hips*
I’ve got grandbabies in Montana and grandnieces in Maine…. and they still believe in Santa Claus. I couldn’t let them down!
i’ve got plenty of space left :) i like it. its a little bright when lit from all those leds on it but i sure do like having the eye candy to look at. gonna have to find something to fill that eye candy gap when its time to put away the tree. maybe i’ll have to have a valentines day tree, a st paddy’s day tree, an easter egg tree…
I knew people growing up who talked about putting Valentines on the tree. . .it has been done.
*laughing* i’ve got lotsa procrastinaters in the family tree — at one point, my sister and i joked that as long as the gift showed up before easter, it was still technically a christmas gift…
lol. just keep that xmas wrap out all year.
Hey, I made a couple of fruit cakes this week, used almost a fifth of brandy already.
i’ve had mine out since i moved in. the roll is propped up against a wall in the ‘dining room’.
oooo a brandy fruitcake vs a whiskey fruitcake like ce makes
I’m not so much of a whiskey girl, but give me a couple of brandy alexanders, any time.
i’m reading a review copy of blue’s peanut butter book for his upcoming book salon and there’s a recipe in it for frozen brandy alexanders using vanilla ice cream and peanut butter — everything is blended until smooth… looks yummy!
I’m looking forward to the book salon. I hope FDL lets folks know that blue is one of our own. This is quite exciting. Are you hosting, Suz?
I used all my xmas package bows to mark the electric fence wire around the garden last spring. Pulled the stick-it tape off and had nice lengths of metallic colored ribbons that flapped in the breeze. Hard to wrap, and not smart to leave under the tree, the few quarts of frozen garden raspberries or frozen roasted tomato/garlic/basil packages that I share with a few people for xmas.
not that i’m aware of.
i know that if ya look at the upcoming book salons (have to scroll down to the 22nd), ya see that the brief write up includes that he is a member and long time commenter and includes his blue nom de blog
i saw an ad today for baggies (iirc) that are decorated with festive motifs for the holidays
Oh, your lucky giftees!
And I’ll bet your fence looked very festive, too. “:)
Will have to buy some now for next year’s harvest, great plan.
its gonna be great! i can’t wait to participate in it…. i had the oil changed and the car winterized at the dealer today (no charge – woohoo) and took a latte, the book, and my glasses (glad i remembered them) and read while waiting in the lounge.
hey nonq — how’s wi tonight?
The wire was pretty invisible and I think I prevented the deer from just accidentally knocking in off the posts. I had silver and gold ribbon.
Had a hectic Tuesday, fell asleep in the chair, have my tea made and will be signing off shortly. Teen to her dentist before school in a few hours for today’s schedule.
I’m back. Just thought that was a cheesy Colbert skit.
yikes — before school? when i was a teen, i preferred to have my dentist appt in the early afternoon so i could leave campus for the day at lunch.
You’re doing great! Busy is good.
the whole christmas special (broadcast in ’08) was cheesey on purpose according to the wiki
Global warming winter, 45F Tuesday and sunny for a change. I’m doing fine, state Republicans are still idiots. Can’t pay public workers or teachers, but they are going to give themselves a bonus by increasing their per diem allowance which they can collect ($88/day) now for just entering the Capitol to check their mailbox.
No, really I think I just missed the drift and used too many onions. I need to get more beef broth and freeze some. I made a huge batch! Is it freezable?
its been warm here too.. all the snow up on mt hood has been melting from all the warm rain. cold air coming in from alaska so we are gonna chill down (its currently a balmy 47 at the moment) so that by the weekend, my highs will be the normal low 40′s and we will dip towards freezing at nite.
I have to drive 20 minutes to the dentist and then the same back to the school. This is a single dentist in a small office and one takes appointments when available. This works out well for us. This is also one of the best dentists by reputation and realistic rates, in the area.
got my flu, pneumonia, and shingles shots. All in one SHOT!
I don’t know. It never lasts for more than a couple of days at my house.
gonna be an early wake up call — but then again, you like getting up early :)
yay loohoo! steph got diagnosed with shingles shortly after arriving at college in florida. she’s the exception coming down with it at 23. i’ve been thinking about getting one after her experience as described to me in multiple phone calls. she was quite miserable.
Wow. That’s efficient. I still have to get the shingles shot. Thanks for reminding me.
I had chicken pox twice, unusual, and I wonder if that makes me more likely to get shingles, no fun.
I’ve never had a flu shot, not much of a believer in that one.
the fiscal cliff
Teddy’s article about getting a physician’s sleep assessment the other day was something I was not aware of. I don’t have anyone telling me that I snore, but the diagnosis and treatment for him sounded like an incredible difference in quality of life.
Sipped my hot tea and I’m saying good night. Be good and be well people.
I take it you’ve never had a bad bout of flu~
i’ve had it a couple times myself as a kid. steph got a partial case with less than half a dozen ‘spots’ so she got re-exposed and came down with a whopping case of spots. i’ve wondered that myself… was that partial case she got the cause
Do it! My baby sister had shingles at about 13. My mom later had it too. A miserable thing that can be prevented.
i’m a believer in that even if one does get the flu, having a flu shot will lessen its duration and severity…
Good night, nonq. Have a good day.
Sleep tight. nonq.
I got my first flu shot ever last week. Apparently it’s an unpleasant one this year.
My dad had it, too. I was set to get the shot back in 2008, but then my daughter had her babies early. I worked my way up the pharmaceutical chain and NO one could guarantee that the live virus in the shot would not be transmittable. I got all the way to the manufacturer and got no sufficient answer, so I waited for the boys to get their own chicken pox vaccines. Gotta get it done!
I never get the flu. . .LM was one who really wanted to have a flu shot, and if my sister wants one, I would help her get it.
starting early this year too — colorado is reporting cases already according to tonight’s local news which also stated that its rare to have flu’s before christmas… it traditionally starts showing up after the christmas holidays are over
And people will not be passing that flu to others. Its an international thing.
supposedly its gonna hit the elderly and the very young very hard. recommendations are for babies 6 months and older to get a flu shot — don’t know if that’s an earlier age requirement or not but it sounds very early
Gotta tuck in, Suz and LooHoo and bgrothus and any other late nighters. Happy and colorful dreams to all.
g’night, Dearie, sweet dreams!
Wow! Variables. I’m looking to get a small roast and will put my miserable onion soup with that for gravy.
tis about time for me to take token out to save a tree and then get horizontal myself…
g’nite all — thanks for letting me hang out tonight
Get some good rest, Suz, thanks for the super hosting!
I’ve never gotten a flu shot in my life until last week! The Kaiser folks scared me into it when I needed the others. So glad I did get the shots.
Good night, Dearie. All the best.
