  1. Just got an embroidery machine and I too would love a copy of this file if anyone is still around and wishes to share? email is icexquisite@shaw . ca
  2. Hey! Just wondering how many fellow Carnival Cruise fans are Canadians? I'm from BC.
  3. 8 Day Eastern Caribbean Jan 29/22 on the Freedom *Ports are St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, Grand Turk or 7 Day Mexican Riviera Nov 12/22 on the Panorama *Ports are Cabo, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta I'm trying to decide so I can block some group space but just don't know which one to pick!! I've done the Eastern Carib twice but never been to Grand Turk and never done the Mexican Riv.
  4. Happy Birthday Diana!! Your dinner plans sound fantastic!! Hopefully DH is doing the clean up as well? He sounds like a sweetie, leaving you notes. 🥰 Belle good job on keeping off 5#, that's is great! Ombud - I really like your thinking on birthday dinners as well! If only that were true. 🎂🍷 Us Canucks up here also get a long weekend, it's Labour Day for us. The last long weekend of summer, just before school goes back. And we like to go to the lake for that reason - after Monday all the seasonal people with kids are gone so the lake is nice, quiet and peace
  5. Morning everyone! Happy belated birthday Belle! Hope you had a great one. Thanks for getting us started. Happy early Birthday Diana! Maybe some treats will be just what your body needs to get your weight moving again. 🤷‍♀️ A little something to shake things up... Sorry for your gains Jan and Mel - hopefully they will melt off with this heat! Are you all still getting all this summer heat? Welcome Izena! hopefully this little group can help you succeed with all of your goals! I myself am down 1#. So I lost the .8 I gained last week
  6. Good morning everyone! I'm up .8 which is to be expected. I slacked off on both diet and exercie for an extended long weekend at the lake with family and friends. Now to get back to it! Belle - thanks for getting us started. Hoping your feeling better and that you have a loss today! Jan - hope the fence goes up without incident and your roses are supported. Diana - Good job on staying the same. Sounds like you are getting in a lot of extra walking when you can. Hoping you all have a great weekend! Robin
  7. @pacruise804 Yes that was it preeclampsia. I was always fine until that. Then I always got stressed going to the doctor as I worried it would be high. My doctor would talk to me and take my BP about 4 times over the course of the visit and by the end it was always a nice, normal level so she wasn't worried. I do find the brownies are very soft and fudgey.. And sitting didn't really make them get more cake like but that didn't seem to matter. I cooked for the 18 mins. Next time I will definitely cut the added 2 TBSP sugar and possibly add a bit more oats to see if they turn out mor
  8. Thanks for getting us started Belle! I really do want 2020 to be over but am kind of worried about what 2021 will bring. Hoping and praying it will be better. Jan - Sorry to hear you had a gain. Diana - Glad your numbers are getting better and things might start to open up again for you. It makes things seem just a little more normal! Melmar - Sorry to hear of your gain after all your hard work. Jo - congrats on your loss. I love After Eights! Haven't had one in a long time. They are really good cold aren't they? My workouts and di
  9. My BP always goes crazy high at the doctor as well. Has every since I was pregnant with my first and developed some condition I can't remember the name of but was to do with high BP. I was on bed rest for the last month of the preganancy and I've had White Coat syndrome ever since. Jan - Congratulations on 47 years!! That's awesome. Ombud - I blanche whole tomatoes, peel off the skin and freeze them in freezer bags for sauces and such later on. I get a case of tomatoes every year. I prefer freezing over canning - it's quicker. And for those wondering about
  10. Good morning. Well half the pan of brownies are gone so they seem to be a hit with the family. I did NOT tell them they are made with black beans, I know my family, they wouldn't have even tried them. I made them exactly as the recipe called using the honey option and the 2 TBSP sugar. I found them to be very sweet. I would skip the added sugar if I make them again. They aren't exactly like regular brownies but they are good and satisfy the chocolate craving. I just told the family they are extra fudgey brownies. I've gotten back into eating Cauliflower rice instead of regular ric
  11. Apparently we had quite a thunder storm here too on Monday night - I slept through it. My Father's test was negative so that's a relief. They think he just got a flu? I keep telling my parents to be more careful, if they can catch a flu, they can get Covid. Belle, I don't think I'd want to be 25 again. I think I'd be happy with being 35 again but I guess I should be happy with where I am, one day I will wish I was 50 again, lol. Haven't settled on a cruise yet, but yes you are right, can always cancel or change to another date if things don't get better.
  12. Checking in to see how everyone is doing - sounds like everyone is hot, hot, hot! We too are in the high 30's so near 100 F. Too hot! And humid here too. Thankful for A/C. We are also spending more time inside - too hot outside. Although we did spend some time Saturday night on the deck, watching the meteor shower and feeding mosquitos. I am going to check out a couple Panama Canal cruises for 2022 that I've heard about lately. Other than that, no cruise planning for me at the moment. I cancelled the one I had booked for next December. Just not sure that one is in the cards for us
