Happy Mother's Day everyone!

It's been really busy here. The kids have an end-of-the year eval scheduled for June 1st. I've got to finish up school and then prep everything.

We priced a bunch of graphics and I spend several hours tonight listing them. We still have a bunch of stuff to go through.

Here we sweat over the days we've had 25C (77F) today. I do not think there are so many people who have ac in this country We have a lot of fans that we can move with us I usually have my in the kitchen when I cook or in the livingroom when I watch TV. I'm thinking of getting a ceiling fan in the bedroom we usually have the window open all summer but it does not help.
To my surprise, I'll be on a round to the DOTY.
(We're celebrating Mother's Day last Sunday in May)

Marie we are in Autumn, with temperatures in the high twenties! It's a little weird, like a nice summer with all the trees losing their leaves.

Congratulations Marie, Suzanne, Debbie and Nikki for making it to the next round of DOTY good6

I keep forgetting that Mother's Day is not the same everywhere lol..it was a wonderful day Saturday..a day early for Mother's Day but that is ok with me lol..

OMGosh it was 95 feeling like 98 just a few hours ago and now it is 68..at 6:17pm..it dropped big time and we have really bad, bad thunderstorms around us and more just about ready to hit us again..the lights blinked earlier..

Renee is doing good..and it's storming there right now..John hasn't called me back about the weather there..and just talked to Terry..told him about the storms and he's taking Shya out before they get here..glad I don't have a dog that needs to be taken out every few hours lol..

Stay safe with these storms..

Have a great day everyone

Hello,

@samantha: glad your daughter is getting better. Oh that's no fun, hope you find a new one soon.
Here it looks like Autumn, after warm weather now it's fresh. Yesterday on our way home from Germany, it was pouring rain and hails and some part got a little bit snow, our mountain that I see from the village looks nice today with snow.

Have a lovely Wednesday.

It's 2 weeks until winter......does it look like it's almost winter?





With all those  leaves in the gutter, it looks like Autumn to me......but with temperatures as high as 29 degrees Celsius, it's a little confusing  hmmm



I had a lovely lunch with a long time friend down by the beach today  topscore

Lost just about everything..I was able to save the cheese, and small things..but the milk, meat, just found one orange that started to go bad..

They didn't bring me a refrigerator yesterday..and omgosh I opened that door this morning and the stench was terrible..the landlord called me "ungrateful"..can you believe that..lol..oh well I have enough in several texts to use against him..

I think my freezer stuff is safe for now..haven't really eaten much in the last 2,3 days..don't have a place for leftovers..eating the oranges and things like that to try and save them..

I hope everyone has a wonderful day

OMGosh Lorry..that place is stunning..I would love, love to be there right now lol..I am so jealous of your all's Winter..lol..

Hello all,

Super busy here. Finishing up regular school and easing into summer school.

Cutter is done with math and he's finishing up Frankenstein. He'll have to read The Martian Chronicles (and do assignments relating to the novel) in addition to his summer reading. I make the boys read one chapter book a month during the summer and Cutter will have to additionally read a non-fiction book - biography or technical book. He finished up English last month.

Tristan is in more serious trouble. He has failed to learn his times tables. He didn't take it seriously and now it's going to bite him in the butt. I refuse to move on to higher math until he has them down. So he will be doing that over the summer. I've set up a ice cream sundae prize to help motivate him. He earns one component of the sundae for each of the 12 times tables. At the end, he gets the prize. He's also struggling with spelling. Again, this is due to lack of motivation on his part so he will redo spelling over the summer. Tristan is done with his reading. He'll continue studying ASL as well.

Because of hurricanes and our printer dying, the boys are behind on Science and History. We will double up and spend several hours a day doing nothing but that here in the near future so it will go quick. Both boys enjoy the subjects so that is not a hardship other than school in the summer. We are going to start playing Geoguesser as well. It will be a fun way to learn a bit of geography.


We got into a dispute on Ebay, which we lost. Ebay is notorious for siding with buyers against sellers. Guy bought and action figure and opened it. This made a $35 figure now worth less than $10. Then he returned it. Ebay gave him the refund despite our dispute. They refused to look at pictures we took. And to make matters worse, the guy left us nasty negative feedback.

Hope everyone here is well. Sam so sorry to hear about the fridge, that just sucks. We've been there before. Luckily, my dad came through with a free fridge for us. It's small and has some tiny rust spots on the outside but it works like a champ.

Wow, your landlord, Sam...

...how is the application for the other housing going?

Lorry - I would have put some more money in the parking meter, LOL!

...that ocean picture is incredible!

Trisha - what a gorgeous picture of the mountain, snow, and clouds :D

87 (30.5C) later today...

...yep, Vegas has decided it is Summer already.

My Pet Shop for DOTY needs some serious organization - remember that kitchen picture for This Old House? It is about 10x worse than that right now giggle
