Love back dearest Daisy. s

Maybe it's the sulfites Opi love? I am allergic, so can't eat raisins or dried apricots in particular. Actually all dried fruits are off the table for me. s

PJ, the hand looks good!

It's a lovely sunny day here. Would be a lot better if I didn't have Jack's problem again.

I don't know if that's good or bad, Least.

I'm afraid to ask.

least honey.....you said that a week or so ago, about not ever drinking prune juice again.....so please don't. I really really want you to please call your doctor back. This is not OK....you need better follow-up treatment love.

Sorry for being bossy. But meh, you know me....I adore you. xx

Least, pass the prune juice please, I could use it. The good news is that my nausea is minimal, very livable today....touch wood.

Bubba and I went for a river walk and drive this morning and I saw this fella fishing along the shore. I love great blue herons, so lovely and big. This fella was quite pleased with himself and did a little dance before he flew off with the fish....

PJ - I agree that your hand looks great - very nice grafting.

Ann - Raptors did a wonderful job - I did the happy dance for you.
I hope the nausea stays away. Glad to hear you feel better - and I love the gorgeous Heron.

Opi - Raisins are bad for our teeth, too. My mom used to put those little red boxes in my lunch, thinking it was healthy.

Least - I hope the problem goes away and stays gone!

Daisy - We're supposed to warm up & have sun tomorrow - I hope you will too.

Mags - How was MrM's pain today?

Poor birds are trying to get to the feeders but it's so windy & cold - ridiculous.

Ann, glad your nausea is a bit better today. I love the Great Blue Heron.

Just took Billie for a little walk. She sent a peemail and enjoyed sniffing all the peemails that she found.

I am going to get some Ensure to make sure I'm eating right. I take a senior vitamin every day but want to be certain I'm getting enough food in me. When I get depressed, I lose my appetite. I need something I can eat or drink to fill my stomach.

PJ, the hand looks good.

Hev, we're supposed to get a few sunny days, surrounded by rainy days.

Mags, hope Mr M's back is feeling better.

Least - Some sun would help your mood maybe. I get grumpy when it's cloudy for days on end.

Out of the next ten days, six of them are forecast to be rainy.

Went to the store and got some Ensure. Rather, Boost, a cheaper brand. Not too bad. I'll have one every morning to start my day.

It's partly sunny right now so maybe I'll walk Billie.

I think it's great that you did that least

And re the rain....I was getting depressed by the forecast, but they are often wrong.....it's beautiful here today. And always parts of the day....kind of like Melbourne....4 seasons in one day, so I feel very at home.

Grat whine: I feel very at home full-stop.....I adore living here. This was a wonderful thing to do for a 50 something year old who had never truly lived.

Took Billie for a walk and she rewarded me with a LW.

I'm grateful that today was good dog walking weather.

It's rained all day and it's still raining now! I had so many plans for Mr D.B and my garden this week but they've all been rained off.

Loving your Friday face Suki.

I'm really glad your nausea has been minimal today Ann, that's good news, hopefully it will diminish over the next few days. Your photo's of the herrings are stunning, thank you for sharing them.

P.J your hand has healed amazing well, it's a very tidy scar, they did a good job on it, it looks good.

Sorry you've got allergies Venuscat, are you okay with fresh fruit, it's better for you anyway than the dried stuff. I'm really glad that you're happy to be living where you are, that is so good.

Are you okay Least? You could send me your remaining prune juice, I could use some. I'm glad you're going back to see your doctor next week, it's very uncomfortable having dodgy plumbing. Look after yourself and make sure you drink plenty of fluids.
Your weather sounds as dismal as ours.

You're right Hevyn, raisins are really bad for the teeth, there is so much sugar in them. I know the mums from school got letters asking not to send them as snacks for their children as they are not considered healthy, the schools are big on healthy snacks where I live.
I just looked at the weather forecast and its more rain and a cool 12c for tomorrow! Still, we're luckier here than some, some places have been flooded out and people have been evacuated from their homes. Make the most of your sun and soak up some vitamin D if you get the chance.

Thinking about you Mags, I hope all is good with Mr Mags.

I'm off to bed now so goodnight and lots of love to you all. xx

Goodnight, Daisy, sleep well.

Least, you can send Daisy the prune juice...I don't need it anymore.

I don't have much appetite for dinner, so I have started making it early so that Bubba can eat when he wants and I can wait until I feel like it. I am sticking to healthy but timing is off a little.

Hev, we had the high winds today but it was almost warm and now the wind has stopped and it is a warm evening, good for sleeping.

Just making the rounds and then will log off until tomorrow, I am ready for a relaxing evening.

Happy weekend everyone.
