Thanks, Sao! Wow, Bim...it does look like painting. So beautiful.

Still waking way too early. Awaken at 3am every night, unable to sleep again.

Wow that was one powerful drinking dream.... I had taken up the wine again with Mr p and was going on about glass sizes.... for a few days. Was checking on how long it was since I stopped drinking.... and was reluctant to reset my count!!!! I was in denial.. ...in my dream. ..
Woken up with a bit of a panic...a mega headache..... and had to really really play it through to realise it's ok it was just a horrid dream.

Gosh I feel drained.

Get better soon Saou.
Amazing eagle picture.
Hugs to all
Gonna get up now and have coffee.... still feel delicate after the dream... almost want to check for evidence.....
Bye for now xx

Sober&Healthy, I know your husband get's mad at you when you drink, but he doesn't want to support you in your efforts to stop? Making you got out to dinner inestaed of you meeting sounds like an attempt at sabotage to me.

It's been awhile since I've had a drinking dream Petals, bit I can totaly relate to the denal. In the one's I've had SR was a feature as I tried to rationalize how this drinking session dosen't count. Even though we are releived it was just a dream, the guilt still hangs around for a while longer.

Hey all,
I could use some good vibes my way. Right now it's 8:21am here in MN. I am going to a bar today to play purse bingo from 12 to 3, so only a few hours. I have no desire to drink, the smell bothers me, I have to drive, I'm picking up my son, relapse isn't an option. I want to stay the entire time to play however if I can't handle it I'll leave.
Thank you a happy Saturday!!

Will be thinking about you Dreamcatcher. Leaving early...Better safe than sorry? Just be really careful and accept no excuses from yourself.

Good morning. It is a beautiful fall day here. Heading to town in a few minutes to be with my Mom today. I got back to sleep finally and then overslept and am late fetting to her. I cant feel too guilty though. I really need my own time. Especially morning coffee with my SO...and with my SR buds!!

So good morning, good day, or good evening...I am feeling so great...and I hope everyone is going strong today! So good to see new people on the weekender thread!

My plans are for the weekend are to spend some time with Mom today, maybe take a foliage drive if I can get her to come out in the remaining mild weather. Then grocery shop this evening ( in my area Saturday night is not exactly the best selection, but oh well!). Sunday going to cook and do laundry and work on finances, health insurance options for us all. And I have to work my job a few hours on Sunday, too.

Anybody got a good cook-ahead/keeps-well recipe you want to throw my way? I am drawing blanks!

Look at all the new faces/names. *nods*

Those eagles...they're going to lay this year's egg/eggs any day now. They are a mating pair on year three together (I think it's year three.) Last year I got hooked on the live cam (with sound) and now it's one of my open tabs any time I'm online. They make noises when something is going on, whether it's food, mating behavior, chasing off intruders or whatever is going on. It's really been interesting, there is a forum attached to it, too. It's a whole thing.

Live Eagle Cam

Protip, click "split view" below the image, you get two cameras at one time.


I need to get out of the house!

I'm house/pet-sitting this weekend, which is not my strong suit. Maybe a long walk will help, I tweaked my back yesterday and I'm feeling a little sorry for myself. Sao, send helpers.

I don't blame you, it's what I would do.

Good luck DreamCatcher. I have found that with a distraction, bingo in this case, it is much easier than if it were just regular bar drinking.

I adore cooking but without knowing what you have I'm drawing blank too. Dream catcher and I were talking in chat and the idea of a recipe/ cooking board came up. I love the idea.....
Have a great day! Susan

I find soups and stews to be the easiest way for quick meals. Freeze part.

They just turned that on today! It is cool. I didn't want to be all eagle-y excited on the thread...so I'm glad you are.
