  1. Thank you, Roy. We've been in this for more than a week and there is NO let up in sight. Temperatures in the 30's with humidex mid to high 30's. I normally only use my AC a couple of times a summer-probably 4-7 days total (I have a pool and it encourages people to get in). It hasn't been off for a couple of weeks already. Even the nights are too warm for me....19-20ºC (68?) I prefer it a bit cooler to sleep.
  2. Good afternoon to everyone who comes here each day to find out the day of the week, where the ships are, meal planning, and quotes to make you think or giggle. Thank you, Rich. Kisses real and virtual have been thrown all day. The sweetest are from my 13 month granddaughter living in Cairo. Every time we do a video call, she giggles and blows kisses when she sees me and, with the bye-bye wave, when we say goodbye. It's our anniversary (36...how did that happen?), and we're debating soup for dinner 😉 but KFC sounds like a plan. Anything that I don't have to make and that will go with wine. Hopefully, we won't be speaking like the quote at the end of the day! @Seasick Sailor, I hope that Allen gets to come home today, and if not, answers come so that a plan can be put in place. It's another scorcher in southwestern Ontario. Stay cool and stay safe! Blessings to all.
  3. Good evening! I think I'll be closing the day off today. I have no need of a scarecrow. Any plants I have die and there isn't anything for critters to bother. I'll need to pull out apple turnovers for DH. He got some for Father's Day and I put them in the freezer. Here's an excuse to let him eat one. 🙂 I love the quote. I stopped growing up a long time again. Now it is always growing wide. We had last night's supper tonight, but the wine sounds lovely. @Seasick Sailor I'm so sorry that you and Alan are going through this. It is a terrible time to be sick and alone in the hospital, and terrible for those who can't be with their loved ones. Prayers sent that he can be quickly diagnosed so that he can be on the mend sooner than later. Try to get some rest! Thanks for the Daily, Rich. Stay safe everyone! Blessings for a wonderful week.
  4. Late to the party as usual! Thanks for the Daily Report, Rich. I never knew that Alice in Wonderland Day was a thing. Just one day devoted to a crazy world. It definitely could be an Alice and Wonderland year! I did some watermelon spitting this afternoon, and the cherry spitting will be tonight. I ❤️ cherries! The quote is true is many instances, for sure! @kazu, I saw the pictures of the various borders on the news. Crazy! But people are ready to start the summer. I hope that the masses continue to follow the protocols suggested by the Health experts. It looks like everyone is having BBQ today. Enjoy the celebrations-wisely and safely! To our American friends
  5. Thanks, Rich! I have been very excited to use my reusable grocery bags again. Our container of plastic bags is flowing over! Chocolate anything day is a good day! Love the quote. No chicken today because I just ordered fish and chips for supper from our local diner. We're still supporting local! Oh, 1angelcat, that is such good news! I'm sure that the emotions were running wild! Yeah for the UHaul box getting there and friendly neighbours, Joy. Roy enjoy the raspberries! (My favourite fruit). Gerry that is so thoughtful of your plan to feed the friends in need. We had two of the grandchildren yesterday over for a swim. The third is coming tomorrow. Have a safe holiday weekend! @puppycanducruise I LOVE the quote from Dr. Henry! It is perfect! Thanks for sharing!
  6. Thanks for the report, Rich. When I was teaching, I left 72+ hours from my last writing to the proofread stage. It's too easy what is supposed to be there, rather than actually read what IS there! I love the dinner suggestion. I'm not sure what we will be having as my son, bonus daughter and grandkids are, apparently, on their way for a swim. @Seasick Sailor it's great that you are so handy. I used to be, now I'd rather just pay someone else to do the work. I'm sorry to hear about the delay for that last pod. @fatcat04 my kids ask for my meatloaf/shepherd's pie when they visit from afar. Comfort food, I guess. @rafinmd glad to hear it went well. Rest up and eat! Have a wonderful day! Stay cool! Stay safe!
  7. Thanks! Yes, and I wouldn't have thought about that. I appreciate the reminder!!!
  8. Thank you for the Daily, Rich! The quote made me snort, and it is a good thing I wasn't in the middle of a sip. Being Canada Day it will be hotdogs or hamburgers today. And some hard cider on the side. Just back from a quick visit with my sisters, one of whom I haven't seen since we got off the NCL Breakaway March 14. All socially distanced, of course. Happy 153rd birthday to Canada. We are fortunate to live is such a wonderful country. 613 × 719
  9. We're scheduled on the Panama Canal cruise from San Diego on February 23. I highly doubt that we will feel confident enough to do this cruise, but I've haven't heard anything yet. Can anyone tell me where to find the final payment due date, other than on the original invoice? I have heard that those dates are a month closer to the cruise now.
  10. Thanks for the daily, Rich. With all the aches and pains, I wish I hadn't been born so soon sometimes. But mostly, I love where I am in life. Not expecting a meteor, and I organized a bit this morning when I was gathering the gifts for my granddaughter. I just realized that DS has her this week and her birthday is next. We will have to plan a birthday celebration for her before she heads home on the weekend. It's going to be a hot one today, so it will be something quick for dinner. I anticipate getting into the pool before picking up books at the library. The libraries aren't open, but I've orederd and have a specific pick up time outside the library for the books this afternoon. For Roy, I'm sure the colonoscopy is over now. And now you get to eat....and drink something that isn't clear! @lindaler good luck. Enjoy the journey! And your companion. You are going to rock this trip! Stay well, everyone! Have a great day!
  11. Good evening. Thanks for the Daily, Rich. I love the map! We've had a busy day today. I had to drive 2 hours to Toronto for DD to take her Music Therapy Board Exam to be accredited in both Canada and the US. Because we had a loooong stand still the last time we drove, we went early today....and of course it was smooth sailing, which would have been okay had there been a restaurant available to go in, eat, and cool down. Stage 2 opening doesn't allow it, so drive through and it in the car it was. Soooo hot. Basically, I'm wiped. I bought a roast chicken at the grocery, and I think that if I have a glass of wine, I will fall asleep right now. Virtual hugs and happy thoughts to everyone. Stay safe!
  12. Thanks for the Daily, Rich. I am definitely not a tapioca fan. The texture makes me gag. That and oatmeal. I'm not sure what it is, but it sure makes for some great family stories! Insurance awareness? I'm getting better at reading the fine print. I'd love to be looking at a travel policy for a cruise right now. 😉 Before we travel, though, there has to be a lifting of Advisories by the Canadian government. Our insurance answered that question a couple of weeks back. Looks like cruising out of the States will be on hold for a while. It's going to be a hot week this week. And, apparently, son has my granddaughter for the week, so I think we'll be busy! We're looking forward to celebrating Canada Day on Wednesday. Our little village has some surprises in store since we can't do the regular fireworks. Have a wonderful Sunday!
  13. Thanks for the Daily Report, Rich. I'm always good for Bahama Mama (Malibu rum only, please) 🍹 We haven't been to the hair salon yet. It's a good thing DH's hair was sheared early March! Mine is just annoying. Forgiveness is so important, not only for the person that did you wrong, but for yourself, so you aren't dwelling on the bad things that happen to you. We have no plans to be anywhere near hurricanes this year. Supper sounds delicious. I'll need to look up the wine. The name is definitely interesting. I need to seriously decide what I'm getting my (soon-to-be) 4 yo granddaughter for her birthday. UGH. I have NO desire to be out there shopping when I haven't a clue. I have clothes, clothes and more clothes, and a couple of books, but the last time I didn't have a toy included my 5yo grandson had a meltdown. 😭I'm trying to avoid that with this little one. Have a wonderful weekend! Stay healthy!
  14. Here's to all the Seafarers at sea and the ones wishing they were! It is also Global Beatles Day. We celebrate the Beatles every hour on the hour with our musical clock-12 different tunes! It was a Christmas gift to DH many years ago, and it changes to Christmas songs closer to the season (November 1 to February or so) I like the quote, and while we don't need to yell our successes from the rooftops, we do have to recognize them to ourselves before moving on. We deserve that feeling of accomplishment. I always seem to be a day ahead or behind with the meal. We had some great pork chops last night. Tonight, it will be a simple macaroni and cheese meal, complete with salad and wine. Thanks again for the daily, Rich. It looks like all of the crews should soon be home. Have a wonderful day! Stay safe! Dream big!
  15. Good morning and thank you for the Daily Report, Rich. I'm clapping my hands for the fairies here. UFOs-I just watched an old episode of Psych on those last night. DH and I are enjoying those old shows. Stuffed chicken breasts sound great, but I have pork chops out for dinner. And wine. @kazu such good news! And just in time for your milestone anniversary. Happy Anniversary to both you and DH. Enjoy that lobster. @Seasick Sailor sleeping in your own bed is divine, isn't it. Fingers crossed that your lost container shows up. To everyone, have a wonderful day! Stay healthy!
