Wish I had known it was on Grace, I was so taken up with
watching a re-run of Clocking Off, I missed it.
That was a long time to outlive her husband!
Bitterly cold here today, how is it across the Irish Sea?
I was talking to a lady in the Vet's waiting room the other day, she always seems to be there when I go, has a Dalmation who is being monitored for weight loss....
She remarked that when she was travelling to the place, she
was struck by how green the hills were in the near distance,
they would be 'in relief' and outstandingly beautiful, all the
moreso when they are capped with snow.
This lady is English also, so not coming from a mountaineous
area, perhaps we notice it more rather than take it for granted..as some would.
Well, off shortly to put on an early meal..
Do hope you are feeling much better today.
Appreciating this and your reply
re THE WICKLOW MOUNTAINS, EL..

So glad you enjoyed that trip & yes indeed..
some of our home spun scenery here is breathtaking.. admittedly
and renowned to be so..

Having said that SO IS WALES...

LOL

something we hold in common.

Did you see 'POWERSCOURT GARDENS' in your Wicklow travels?
I always remember with certain fondness .... the pet cemetery there..
and the heart rending inscriptions.

'Thank you' for asking El..

Yes, I feel MILES better today, glad to say
the cold was kind enough to know
'where it wasn't wanted' lol... and so left me.. rather promptly(:

Very much alike Grace...and both matched equally by the beautiful
Lake District in Northern England...again a place beloved by poets.
Unfortunately no I did not see Powerscourt Gardens, an excuse to
come again!
Glad to hear you gave that cold it's marching orders, well done!

Thank you...she is looking better already.

cows come home, lol..but that doesn't suit all.
You mentioned recipes....I noticed a thread here on offbeat
soley for recipes, but still hope you will find time to post

Our Maine Coon mix is a REAL cat! Very aloof until he wants to be petted. The tuxedo is more dog like, very needy and liked to be held.
I do hope all are well. Denny is suffering a bug; Quinn is checking her map... We will break bread this Spring no doubt! There will be a posting for our North American folks to meet!

Now why on earth would you think that you're not one my favorites Grace? Granted my sense if geography initially was bad in confusing you & El as far as who is in Ireland and who is in Wales. What did I say to offend?

Interesting also that you should say that. When I first arrived in the kitchen, I kind of thought the same thing. Some of you have known each other longer and I felt the outsider......and kind just sit back and watch the sports talk since I'm not familiar or big on US sports and certainly don't know anything about European sports. So I've got nothing to contribute there.....

Animals, US politics or food, I'm you're girl and then won't shut up!

had two cats, one was big as a house, lol, as he was a fast

their own little dish....:)
.....but can they read their names on the dishes?

I'm sure your friends have ALWAYS valued YOU more highly

HA HA HA! I just saw the poll...you came to the right place, lol!
How are you Dear Rose? Finish the bathroom off?! I know the felling, did mine on Wednesday, back breaking but worth the effort.
Not familiar with hypoglycemic condition but it sounds related to diabetes, so it is a genetic disorder? Wasn't aware of that.
I was so relieved she was negative, I really did not relish the idea of daily injections, not at her great age, although she is very much the kitten cat. The Vet put a tablet down her little throat and squirted water down her...I never do that, but I couldn't say anything. I pride myself I get the tablet right at the back of the throat halfway down the gullet. Hope I am not boring you, haha.
Pretty cold here but still no snow, did you get more after all.
You have a wonderful weekend, keep warm and well nourished...
Best....<3
Love-n-Hugs
Hi Lady Eleanor...
Diabetics have to much sugar in their blood and Hypoglycemic means you have to little... My sister was diagnosed with borderline diabetes but was able to get it under control before it got serious..
I was diagnosed as being hypoglycemic about 14 years ago.. I had a really bad spell one night my sugar had dropped really low and I was so sick I thought I was going to die... I passed out, woke up and was sick to my stomach and on my way to the bathroom when I felt like I simply had to have a glass of Pepsi right then, so I did and within 15 minutes I was right as rain... Went to the doctor that week and got tested...
Now I make sure to keep Pepsi in the house at all times along with some hard candies... I still get a little shaky at times if I don't eat right... So far I haven't had anymore really scary episodes...
Now about the snow.. We've had three... two were just dustings of 1 inch or so but this last one was around the 5 inch mark... We have more rain than anything... Today wasn't bad though.. kinda gray but it was in the 40's.. The forecast does call for some rain again this coming week... It's the stuff that just went through Dennys neck of the woods...
I blame Flower Child all the time for the rain...hahahaha
I know if they have it in Texas 3 days later it'll be here...
I hope that I haven't bored you with all of my ramblings...hahahaha
;o)
Sending you all of my best wishes for a Wonderful day filled with the joys of laughter and the comforts of love...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Thanks for your reply RM, and..
It's all good.

Sometimes, as is often said, it is hard to get the full
measure of another if one isn't with them in person..
An error of judgment can be made.

I have something in common with you
re the 'sport' lol
In fact ! Among personal friends here,
when they go to major sporting events I'm often pulled
In as the babysitter! and they can do so without any guilt(:

Total opposites then. The kitten..the blue/cream tortie for
all her prettiness is a real cat...she refuses to be petted
(flattens herself on the ground) lol unless SHE wants to..
while the eldest, Dai Bach follows me around everywhere and
is very verbal. He is 16 and half and has always ruled the
roost, I thought age had caught up with him until I saw, with
my own eyes, a powerful male who comes by run like the Dickens
when Dai shown his face in the garden. Although he is pedigree,
there is nothing lost in the breeding, yet he is gentle as
a lamb with the rescues..and has babysat quite happily when I
rescued a cat who was two days from giving birth.

Quite exciting to think of you all meeting up...following it
all with interest from here.

Maine Coons are the coolest cats - we had one that lived for 21 years. He was like a dog - used to come for walks!
British Shorthair, particularly the British Blue, are very
dog like Tony. In fact they are known as 'the clowns of the
feline world'...they are a pleasure to 'own'. Dai is
British S.H. Silver Tabby. 21. Wonderful age.
