Welcome LD!

Glass art? Cool!

Would you happen to know anything about fixing stained glass?

Well... To be honest I took the day off because I am in the dumps. I am in a spot in life that is extremely alone and while I know it will not last there are days that aloneness turns lonely.

My spell check just tried to turn lonely into loony. Could have left that go and it would fit.

Being loony is a battle with myself. With out the burden of drinking it's something I can see through but it takes some work.

Anyway... Thought throwing that out there would help me a bit. Time to go buy stuff!

I am sorry you are lonely, Weasel.
I know how you feel.
While the cat and dog provide endless unconditional love, a human companion would be nice. Every once in a while.

Thanks olive.... There is only one thing to do.... Cook and shop! Ok two things!

I think I will make a roasted corn and black bean salsa today. I love that stuff when the balance between the cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper is just right! Mmmmm

I'm there too...which is why I have the cats and the dog, gives me purpose. I will NOT allow myself to dwell on it, because I know that road leads to self-pity and self-pity leads to poor me a drink. So we don't go there....I do my own therapeutic things now and hope for something better....that way the worst thing I will end up with is a clean house.

I am alone on mother's day this year, so I will be checking in a lot.

I'm in! It's raining cats and dogs here today which means it's a perfect coffee and reading day for me.

I feel a head cold coming on, plus a bit of an earache, so I'm guessing this will be a somewhat laid back weekend...I'm perfectly fine with that! I DO need to clean my house though....I have stacks of disgusting dishes that I keep putting off and they're now driving me nuts.

Looks like my weekend will start a few hours early. My A/C unit wouldn't come on yesterday, so I called for service and they are coming early this afternoon. Taking off work early to meet them.

Not exactly a fun way to start the weekend, but I actually prefer it to work these days. My boss has the communication skills of a turnip, and I find him highly annoying.

Next stop - home!

I'm in. Had a somewhat frustrating day so far. The weather hasn't been great today but I had to do something productive so walked the (very heavy) lawnmower down to my grandmothers house only to find The Worst Lawnmower in the World is broken yet again so had to walk back uphill to my house with it sweating and swearing the whole way. My own fault for not checking the damn thing before leaving.

Then it actually brightened up so I went and got my book to sit outside to read, obviously after about three minutes the sun disappears and it becomes instantly freezing cold.

On the bright side I finished my book (indoors) which I started last weekend, Volume 3 of The Dark Tower. Looking forward to starting volume 4. Also done a 50 minute DDPYoga workout and sweated my ass off which always makes me feel better. Also cooked and ate a lovely rainbow trout I caught a couple of weeks ago.

Not really sure what I'm up to tomorrow. Sunday shall be mostly spent watching football I think. Enjoy your weekends everyone

I'm off work all this weekend so might watch a few more NHL games than usual, with no early mornings to worry about!!

Anyone in Europe will know the Eurovision song contest is on tomorrow night, always worth a watch for some entertainment value!! plus Premier League soccer draws to a close on Sunday.

Let's do this!!

The boss just left early for the weekend.
I think I will do minimal work for the rest of the day.
Time to make the grocery list for the week.

I am at a loss for what to make for food this weekend. I think I have settled on turkey burgers, baked potato and coleslaw. Unless someone has a more interesting idea. I will make a batch of oatmeal cookies for my father on Saturday.
