A Cold Wet Friday Night Conversation

Man at the rain. Like all night. Hope things are good where you are.

How is everyone? How was your week?

It's almost over- what are your plans for tonight and the weekend?

Supper? I did pulled pork yesterday. And made some stew last night so that is going be what I am having. Grilled Remington some chicken so he is happy. It's his world, I just try to keep up. With this rain he has turned into his alter ego- Chief Dirty Foot.

What's on your mind? Don't have much in the way of kickoff topics this week. So help me out.

New people- absolutely join in. You never know when something starts pages of discussion.

No rain here, but the snow is slowly melting and turning our yard into a skating rink. It feels like spring with all the melting & freezing - it is my least favorite part.

Our weather is supposed to be decent all weekend (+4 to +10 celsius) so I'm hoping to get outside for a bit. Of course the Christmas markets are springing up everywhere so I may need to check one out this weekend. The CFL (Canadian version of NFL) is coming to a close in a couple weeks and my team has made it to the Western Conference Final. So Sunday I will be watching football. The Grey Cup is actually being hosted in a nearby city (about 90 minutes away) this year. Might be cool to check out some of the festivities next week especially if my team makes it into the finals.

Supper.....the bane of my existence. Last night I didn't really have supper as I was rockin' a massive migraine. Tonight I might make homemade tomato soup as I have an abundance of tomatoes to use up.

Does anyone else get super stressed the closer to Christmas we get? I always stress about what to get people, and of course money issues. B/F is usually very busy this time of year out on jobs and making decent cash, but b/c of the Oil & Gas issues in our province the jobs are harder to come by.

Happy Weekend to everyone!

Its cold here but bright and sunny so can't complain, its actually milder than its been for a few days. It seems to have been much colder for the time of year than we've become used too.

Its all soups and casseroles now, things wrapped in pastry and curries and pasta dishes. This is when all the weight I lose in the summer comes back on!

Idiot Rhodesian Ridgeback baby has but her pad and making such a fuss about it. I've never owned such a sensitive flower of a dog before. They must have evolved a long way from a dog that protected the herd from lions!

Just winging it is not a plan

It's supposed to be decent here the next few days. Highs in the 40's, which beats the high of 3 we had earlier this week. No big weather systems, either, so that's good. We're visiting family this weekend. I would rather stay home and mess with the horses, but it is what it is. Thankful for the good weather for traveling. We're trying to do some visiting/family traveling during the next few months while we are still 'dogless'. Once we get our new puppy, we'll be back to no travel unless we can take him with us, or find someone to dogsit. My mom used to be the one to come over and stay at the house with the dogs, but since they're moving 5 hours away, that's not going to be an option anymore. I refuse to take my dogs to a commercial boarding kennel, so that option is out. Too many bad experiences with that...

I need to go take some feed out to the horses, wash the truck, fill it with gas, and get my stuff packed so when DH gets home from work this afternoon we can just load his bag and go. What am I doing instead? Drinking coffee and dinking around online! :-D

It's sunny and cold today, around 7C/45F. I don't think the weather is to change until well into next week. Long may it last as i hate, cloudy, miserable days at this time of year.

No fixed plans for the weekend, other than housework and perhaps a walk in the countryside to take advantage of the sunshine. I've been neglecting the house over the past week, mainly due to a high workload and various Remembrance events. I can't ignore the pile of ironing for much longer; it's far too large LOL.

I haven't thought about supper. A cracked tooth, which was worked on a few weeks ago, is still giving me problems. A visit to the dentist today for a 'quick, easy job', resulted in three injections and extreme pain. Everything is numb, except for the tooth, which is throbbing. Nope, definitely can't face food.

Have a good weekend everyone.

@cbar I hate that, I hope it melts quickly. It can be such a mess. :( I try not to stress about Christmas. I'm not getting a lot of stuff for people this year, I don't have many people to buy for luckily, but I haven't even thought about it yet. Still trying to focus on Thanksgiving! I know some people already have their Christmas lights up. It's too early to me! LOL

Happy Friday! :) The first week at my new job has been great. Really like it here so far. Such a different (in a good way) environment. Everyone works as a team, it seems like. I'm not used to it, it's a nice change. Bigger firm, better environment for sure.

Not many plans this weekend. Going for a ride of course, haven't been able to ride much this week because it rained & it's just been so cold! Ugh. Supposed to warm up a little next week though. Sunday dinner at my parent's house & I think my mom & I are gonna go see a movie. Just gonna relax most of the weekend!

Ride more, worry less.

Happy Friday ALL!! Yep rainy and cold here so not doing much this weekend. Will go to the Duke Classic Jump for the children... Hope they have some more vendors....

@Caledonian - Ouch! on the tooth... that stinks, I hope it gets better.

@PoptartShop - Sooo glad your first week at the new job went well! I hope it continues to do so!

For dinner I'm having a friend over and I'm making Braised Short Ribs in the Instant Pot... but trying to think about the sides... probably creamed spinach and maybe potatoes... might do polenta.. anyone done the mashed cauliflower? Trying to do low carb which potatoes aren't.

Have a great weekend ALL!

Wet here in the southern U.K. Misearable with it being a damp cold that seeps into you.

We are having it easier than up country where several,areas were flooded last week in 3' + of water - a months worth of rain in 24 hours. Schools closed and places cut off unless you have a tractor or a high 4 x 4.

Poor folks homeless for Christmas.


I often wonder about what sense many planning officers have! The area that flooded the worse is in Yorkshire, it is called Fishlake. Now, an area gets its name for a reason, thismwas once a lake, probably with a lot of fish in it! Dried out and drained, homes and businesses built. It lies close to the river Don, lots of rain, river breaks its banks so the once dry Fishlake becomes a lake without the fishes.
