Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Happy New Year everyone, I hope everything good comes your way in 2017.

I am sorry to have missed Kors hosting week, I have been under the weather but am starting to come good. They tell me it is a chest infection

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Happy 2017 everyone! Hope the new year brings good things to you all

I intend to participate in more WDEs this year. I missed quite a lot of them last year; I got carried away with lots of other projects and missed out (I always find WDEs fun to work on). I've decided to take part in more of them no matter how busy I am, even if I can only spend ten minutes on something it is better to have a go than to miss out.

I have photos ready to post up when I get home tonight.

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Skylar - what a nice compliment to the forum - thank you - it goes without saying how we love to have you here too - but there, I've said it!

Sorry to hear you're poorly Christine (I thought it was summer downunder?!!!) do hope you are well again soon. If it's the same strain as many have over here , it does tend to linger .. but you're in good company - The Queen is still under the weather too!

Kay - that really is the right attitude and I must make it my mantra too - I'm struggling to get things done some weeks if it doesn't work first go - this week is one of them!

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

It sure is summer and dont we all know it , I think what I had came about from sawing down dead palm fronds and getting a lung full of nastiness when I got covered from head to foot in dust and goodness knows what else. I think I will pay someone to do it in future.
What I had was more like pleurisy I think but no doctors were open and I did not feel up to sitting in an emergency room to get it sorted. Anyway I am all better now and so is the Queen so I hear so I have been in very good company

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Snow has been forecast for us today. There is a lot of it further north - I could even see it on my walk to work this morning - but so far it's missed us. I love a bit of snow! So I will wait patiently.

Thanks to all of you that participated in my WDE last weekend, I really enjoyed looking at everyone's versions of my photos. I finished something very quickly that I'll post later (even though I don't like it very much!) - I'm determined to finish one each week! I haven't got very far with my painting this year - hopefully I'll speed up again now the house is back to normal after Christmas (even though my table is covered in chocolate!)

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

greetings from snowy Calgary!! i hope everyone had a great holiday season.. and survived to tell about it

sorry i haven't been around for a while. the renovations took longer than expected, and my office/studio got misplaced in the mess! why is it that your art space is always the first to go? anyway, got the last 2 weeks caught up, and still have a couple from previous weeks to finish... maybe next week.

renovations are finally done!! at least mostly.. couple of things outside to finish when the weather improves. so i have a nice wheelchair ramp... and no #$%@ wheelchair yet! gotta love govt health care at least the new bathroom on the main floor is making life a lot easier for me .. woo hoo!

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Thank you all for all the messages of support - they really did, and do still, help.
As you can imagine, it's been a very traumatic time. My husband had been regaining his health over the past 10 month and feeling good again, unfortunately emergency surgery was too much for him.
Three weeks after that, my sister's husband also died very suddenly and so we had the same things to deal with yet again.

While I'm still doing a lot of Admin work 'de-coupling' all the household accounts, pensions and tax etc (such an awful lot! ), I am hoping to get back to the forums here and help out where and when I can.

Thank you Dewi for letting all our friends here know and thank you EVERYONE for your kind prayers and thoughts - you'll never know how much they helped me.

Now I'm hoping to catch up on all that's been happening and try to see all the WDEs done in my absence - I'll also try to catch up on gossip here! - and do my bit to help The Team, who have been holding the fort

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Blessings and strength to yo uMaureen and family to recover and carr on

I have been trying to get back into the habbit of WDEs again, have been doing alot of sketching and small things, so that is my new direction, I spent the winter making journals and trying to grasp mixed media and abstractions, this year is a new year of learning for me. I am enjoying our new hosts and hope we can get more. I am off to London for a week in March so will have some new photos for my hostin when I get back, I am spending a week submerged in culture with some friends who live there, they have booked theater, music, opera, orchestra, jazz, blues, gallery shows and museums for me, I am advised shopping is not allowed. I just hope it is not raining

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

Maureen - I cannot begin to imagine all the administrative stuff that needs to happen. And your sister to be going through the same thing. Oh dear

Have fun in London, Bonnie. What is this "shopping is not allowed"? These pals would rather do non-shopping things?

Re: Weeders' Chatroom!

great to see you back Maureen! now we have to get you back in 'artist' mode i know ... it takes time ... only when you are ready.

have a good time in London, Bonnie! i am jealous but i can still say i have been to London .... London, Ontario are we going to see a British bulldog the next time you host the WDE? hee hee

awesome artwork as always this weekend everyone!

news here is that i finally got my wheelchair! pretty blue color. i asked for racing stripes too, but they would have none of that! now i have to learn the ins and outs of using it. first thing i learned is that it is a knuckle buster going thru narrow doorways if i'm not careful.
