Hey Sao, not too sad or depressed today ?

One of our neighbors had for some reason ( ) a french flag and an english flag outside their house.

This morning the french flag was all alone ...

BB Those Mongoose look like they are worshiping the sun or something! Very cute.
Manta you sounds awesome...embracing this new challenge, not angry or ducking. Good for you.
This weekend I am heading to Chicago to meet up with my hubby to celebrate our belated anniversary. He has been there since Monday and will be there for another week. He is 8 years sober so my plan to celebrate sober with him should be quietly appreciated! This will be my first trip/celebration since my quit and a good preparation for the vacation and family reunion coming a week after this.
Celebrate Sober in Chicago (you can't say that 3 times fast unless you are sober)

Gilmer, here is a video of two men getting that gator out of the pool. It isn’t entirely clear just how they did it.

Yeah! Purps! It will stick this time I know it!

finished my paying job week now I get to do my non paying job which is housework. Little bit, okay truth,,, a lot disgruntled with husbands inability to do anything to help with above project. But after 23 years you would think it wouldn't bug me,, but I am kind of a slow learner I guess,,,

ooh ooh! Our apple trees are all ripening at once, our neighbors all run when they see us now, and my poor dehydrator cant keep up. Fresh sun tea brewing on the patio, will make it a good day!

I'll jump in here on the weekend bandwagon.

Entering my 4th week alcohol free and it's hard. Day 22. I'm going away for the weekend, an early start to a business trip. I am visiting friends who drink very little - like one beer for happy hour and that is that. Shouldn't be too hard to keep this up. That said, I'll be on here if I feel a bit wobbly.

So glad you’re benefiting from the rehab Manta! I love reading your posts, you’re doing such an awesome thing

Love the lemurs Bim! and I am a definite fan of morning coffee

Well done Purps!

Happy sober anniversary Lizajane, that’s beautiful ❤️

LHW I had a work trip last weekend. It was hard but the amazing people here on SR helped me through! Stay strong, come here if things get tough. You can do this

I’m off to a yoga class, have a great day/night everyone

Love to you all ❤️xx
