He does mean a lot to me, Wilma. Most beautiful person on the planet, in my opinion. So much love and respect for him. Thank you. We're working on the happiness, finding it where we can.
It's slowly warming, just wish it wouldn't keep dropping under 20 degrees, it's getting a bit late in the year for that. Grumble. I'm sure you'd be happy as a clam in it, though, haha. We've actually come into some warm days, 27 today, and a couple of days over 30 coming up. Just the ticket for ol' Blue. You'd hate it. :) Might get my other curtains washed before it goes cold again, we'll see. Glad you're getting some tomatoes in, I agree about home grown, they are so good.
A little help with the pain is a start. Sorry it seems like trading one pain for another, though. I hear ya, Wilma. Not quite old yet, but definitely feeling a bit creaky some days, got a whole bunch of irritating aches and pains I never used to.
Very glad to hear the exhibition has been a success, and that you're thinking positively toward the next one. Very important message, I agree, it's great you can support getting it out there and have your lovely art appreciated at the same time. :)
Yup, it's a lot. And I "make too much" for a Health Care Card. Hardy-freakin'-har - not that one of those would get me a discount on psych or dental anyway. And I have more appointments upcoming with both. As for the Carer's Allowance, it was pittance anyway, hardly over $100 a fortnight, so it helped a bit but would have made no difference to whether or not I had to return to work. Still pegged to go back at the end of this month. Don't wanna.
It's a great little gadget, I think I can retire the plunger. Takes up a lot of space, though. Contemplating getting a table in the living area to have as a breakfast bar. Not for a while, funds are limited. Nice thought though, and not wholly out of reach.
Thanks, I do love to cook, and take a lot of pride in it. It's fun exploring different cuisines and ingredients. Oh, if you want an easy pasta sauce, I fall back on marinara a lot. I don't use seafood in it of course, but Sunfed or even oyster mushrooms would go nice in it. Just tinned tomato, a bit of minced garlic and oregano - maybe some passata and water if it's a bit dry, and cook it all together for a bit. Easy and tasty. Glad you found an easy potato recipe.
Lovely, I'm glad you're happy with the help.
Thanks. Chocolate is always welcome. Kind thoughts and coffee for you.
