  • Astra Zeneca was the one I wanted when it was still in the testing phase. But it hasn’t been approved over here yet and my mother (retired nurse) recommended Pfizer. So Pfizer is the jab I got. And I should say STAB because like I mentioned ….I didnt feel the initial 💉shot….but after a while I felt like my arm was stabbed or better…[Read more]

  • Hmmm…..could it go both ways?

    I still want to respond to your post …but have been off in another world these last few weeks I hope you don’t mind but I am going to attempt to move this post back to the top later so I can get to a response. I think….what you said here is so true and important for others to see.

  • I might have done the same thing as you….but I was asked my opinion of the movie so I had to look at it from as many angles as possible. My sister can get into some deeper discussions. So I have to “try” to dive as deep too. ☺️

  • YES…not horror in the sense that we thought. But I imagine a religious person could see the horror in it if they see the “Gluttony” and the “descending” floors.

  • I kind of get this. I think we feel LAZY when its something we really are not passionate about. I never had to do a remodel….and I probably won’t ever. But I love the idea of it…I love how creative some people can get over it. My fun is designing a room. But….it is also draining too.

  • So …I ended getting the first Vaccine a few weeks ago. I didn’t think my sons Tribe would include me in their Vaccination list but they asked my sons if I wanted it or anyone else in our household. I felt […]

  • Just hearing about him again turns my stomach. It just irks me how politicians are owned.

  • 👏AGREE 👏AGREE 👏AGREE. I have more to say on this and will tomorrow or later. I seem to have to oddest sleeping schedule.

    Great description of an interesting place 🧠
    If you ever saw ” Labyrinth” the movie…..the maze is what its like inside my head ☺️

  • Are you serious?
    I can’t wait for them to release more Chateau seasons.
    We also have MANY shows like this. But I was drawn to the Chateau because of the amazing castle like home….and the beautiful couple doing it all.

  • You got to work from home? Thank goodness for that. Being able to keep working through this pandemic. I would be horrible at it. I see those commercials where people are in pajama bottoms and nice tops doing conference calls. I know myself…..I would probably start watching soap operas all day and actually getting some work done at midnight…[Read more]

  • Do you believe that some people always attract the same kind of potential mates?
    I believe that. I do think we have to look within to find out why we keep attracting the same type of people.
    I also think….some people easily give their hearts away too soon. People get so caught up in the fun and fanciful feelings of infatuation. Infatuation…[Read more]

  • YES…..I have to monitor how many shows I get into because they are addicting. AND…there are so many shows like this out there.
    I think from what I saw…they have lived there a few years and still have not got to half the rooms. Renovating them that is.

  • If any one knows me they know I absolutely love DIY projects 🛠 and watching shows like this. I think because of the Covid slow down of new shows over here some of our channels are showing older UK shows. WHICH ar […]

    • I love, love, love shows like this.
      So interesting! I would buy up a Chateau like this in a heartbeat if I could. Reminds me of some of the pictures my dad’s godmother in Switzerland used to send.

      I also love watching Fixer Upper, Joanna and Chip. Tiny Houses. They truly amaze me!

        • They really are very addicting.
          It’s been quite easy for me to get hooked on them last year. The company I work for has had all 150 of us working remotely, so I turn the TV on for noise, and of course, end up watching while doing tasks.

          I can’t even imagine renovating that many rooms. That is a LOT!!!

            YES….45 rooms in this Chateau. I definitely would have to marry a Journeyman to do all this work. You should start watching the show…..this man could do everything. He is ex military and a chef. He also is a trained gardener I think…he just knows it all. And she is so cute. She is so talented with design and unique ideas. And to do all of this with small children….AMAZING.

    • This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
      It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
      So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

      There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the construction of a house from foundations to the roof. It may sound ordinary but it really isn’t.

    • Someone remodeled the big house (Chateau) which is not my thing at all. I prefer getting an apartment as is, and not having to worry about it. Oh maybe pick out a picture or two. LOL This somehow brings to mind an interview I saw part of earlier today of Fran Lebowitz who emphasised that she is lazy. She got one bad job after another when she first moved to New York at 18, and finally just realized she didnt’ wanna work, period.

      That’s sort of me.

        I sometimes just want to hire a decorator to come and decorate every room in my house because I can never make my mind up. I can spend months debating over a chair…..and once I decide on the model….add a few more months on picking a color. And add a few more months after that for picking the fabric/texture. ITS HORRIBLE. But…. once I get going I am ok.

        Yeah…..pictures are an issue with me too. Because I only want to hang my own art work. But I don’t because I want to paint in a color scheme I decide on for the room. And ….and….and…..it doesn’t end you see. 😔

    I will say…I don’t comment on the post I read from you because I feel so heavy hearted and as if my limbs feel like bricks after I do. But I realized….. that is your ability to bring the reader to this place. Which is actually a talent/gift not many have. So I ask myself….do I comment on the gifted writer….or do I comment on the pain?

  • If I were you…and your calendar is clear….ROAD TRIP it.

    My sons Tribe is already offering them the immunization. I am not from their Tribe so I am not on the “early” “Privlidged” list …ha. They of course are not going to get it but said they would call and see if I could take their spot. But I know how these Native American politics…[Read more]
