Re: My dear Joon...

Well, as to the question of communion, I've done the following by dropping a question at Saint Francis of Assisi's website I'm a Baha'i, who's been associating with the Secular Franciscans, and am not eligible for Communion. Although I stay seated, I'm still offered, and don't wish to offend or emba...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

We voted absentee last week, and, on the site, it says that our ballots have just been counted. I hope there's more like us out there.

Re: My dear Joon...

The bath is finished. And it's beautiful. Opening the door is like going into a holodeck. Duane is not happy about the money spent, and I was of the same mind, until I realized that I am not getting better. It's a mere three, four inches tops to step inside the shower, and there's a wee seat in the ...

Re: My dear Joon...

The room's been painted, and the guys are shop-vaccing everything. The vanity is in, the sink's in the vanity and the medicine chest is back on the wall. They had to return the original light fixture to the top, because the one we bought won't fit. Well, it'll fit, but there's not enough space above...

Ah, sweetie :hug: . There's more like the two of us, than there are of all like them - and they know who they are. It'll be okay.

Re: My dear Joon...

I fell. It's so stupid - I lost my balance against the bedroom door. The medicine chest is leaning against that wall, about a foot away from the opening. It's amazing how much time I had to think as the floor approached, how deliberately I could twist to the left to avoid the thing, which is a metal...

Re: My dear Joon...

Just when I think I'm over this cold/flu/allergy/plague, it's back. I had hopes of taking the past few days easy, once the laundry was done. Just clothes, though I might get to the rest come Thursday. But the Honey has been reading through books at such a rapid rate that I've taken him to the librar...

Re: My dear Joon...

Sniffling along, but I'm getting things done. Went out this morning and bought groceries - I'm still bringing them in, I've got two bags left. The guys were here yesterday from just after 8 AM until 5:15, and it is really coming together. The shower is almost finished, and they might get the floor d...

Re: My dear Joon...

The cold persists... And now there are bugs. I'm used to the occasional pill bug (aka, roly-polys), and brown recluse - which is a spider, and therefore not an insect, which gave rise to the saying all insects are bugs, but not all bugs are insects. To continue, I have squashed a couple of silverfis...

Re: My dear Joon...

Still coldish... But we went out today. I had a bill and profession cards to mail, Duane wanted to go to the library and a walk in the mall. Prescriptions to pick up, and the first of our two favorite lunch dates. I didn't have enough change, and I was told just bring it next week. We've been eating...

Re: My dear Joon...

The terminators showed up at 8:15 this morning, and the room is gone. All of the studs are exposed, the floor has been ripped out, the tub has been smashed to smithereens, and there's not a shred of drywall anywhere. They won't be here tomorrow, so we'll be able to go out on Tuesday. I'm pleased, bu...

Re: My dear Joon...

Michael was here, and we went off to the cemetery first thing. Well, first thing after two grilled cheese sandwiches for him. It's so warm and muggy - this is October? Anyway, we bought a bouquet of fall flowers - Mike picked it out - and saw that Phil's stone is in place. It's the same size as Lloy...

Re: My dear Joon...

We're getting our new bathroom starting Monday... I'm looking at what I just wrote. I know the contractor called me today, he's bringing the crew over between 8 and 9 o'clock that morning, and I still don't believe it. It's Michael's room, the one he heads off to whenever he arrives and has to go, s...
