Hello, hello today. We have our coffee brewing and water is simmering, ready for tea and cocoa.

Not a lot is going on this weekend. There is little chance of moisture today in the weather which is good. We've had so much rain and such that it has brought on a fungus that is attacking the sycamore trees in the neighborhood. That is not good. So, I'm happy when the rain passes us by now.

Let's all have a nice Sunday.

Morning, Larry. Thanks for the coffee and for leaving a cookie or two for the rest of us. ;)

Nicola's other site appears to be, not just down but WAY down. Even the email notifications seem messed up. Hopefully it's just a temporary glitch and not a major FUBAR. ;)

Good afternoon. Housework is done. Weather sucks (and will for the next day or two). What are folks up to?

hello1 hi everyone
A beautiful day in the neighborhood. Birds chirping and butterflies fluttering about.
A large tea would be fantastic
Not much going on here today kind of a laid back sunday
Sports are slowly reappearing it looks like.
NASCAR is running a handful of races without fans in the stands to see how it goes.
Arizona is slowly reopening but people are still being careful for the most part.

I have cookies today : chocolate chip cookies shaped like bunnies, white chocolate chip cookies shaped like butterflies, oatmeal raisin cookies shaped like tulips and ginger snap suns
All are diabetic friendly too
*cleaning out the crumbs in the cookie jars and filling them to the tippy top with fresh cookies *
*giving the adorable mascots fresh cold water and treats *

Hope everyone has a great day and stays safe! hello2

Morning is breaking. The coffee is perking. The water is boiling.

Lovely day out. We shall see what it may bring to us today. Still plenty of cookies in the cookie jars.

Good morning, all. I'm up a few minutes early today, so the coffee is going to be ready a tad quicker. It is percolating presently. And the tea kettle is on the stovetop.

Lovely day outside. I may have to break down and do some gardening. I need to put a border around the garden in back to retain the pebbles that surround all the plants and shrubs.

Let's have a good day, shall we?

Morning to all Inspired Stories Spacers. Larry, that coffee is downright drinkable. If there are a few of Sara's cookies left, I'll try to take care of both them and the java. It's a tough job but when the going gets tough, it's time to sit, drink coffee, and eat cookies, imo. ;)

Her doctor is amazing so I'm trying to stay calm.
My sister is a basket case but her husband is a rock and keeping it together and explaining all the details and medical things to my sister.

I'm keeping it together the best I can. I'm so thankful for my friends.

Good day, folks. The coffee is on its way and the water is simmering.

Nothing planned today. Just listening to the yard service mowing the lawns for the week.

I'm sure there are still Sara's cookies in the jars.

Coffee! For the love of suffering humanity (at least this particular, maybe even peculiar, carbon-based lifeform, coffee. A handful of Sara's cookies would also be a major kindness.

Ah, now that's mo' better. ;)

Seems like we inspired Stories Spacers are all getting a late start. But better late than never, thus sayeth the old cliche'. That is especially true when there are cookie jars filled with Sara's cookies and both the coffee pot and tea kettle are ready to provide their own variation of caffeinated fluid to go with dem cookies.

Y'all enjoy your late start.

My mom is doing great.
Thank you all for thinking of her and keeping her in your prayers the next step is that she will have a pacemaker put in tomorrow and will need to take time to heal. So please keep her in your thoughts for a speedy recovery.

Went with my friend Dodie to do some shopping for her family reunion and that was a fun time since I was relaxed. I got a few cute things
We had a good time plus we needed a little retail therapy.

I have cookies for a late drop in
We have peanut butter and banana and chocolate chip and we have oatmeal raisin all are diabetic friendly

Morning to all inspired Stories Spacers who enter seeking coffee or tea and a sampling of Sara's cookies.

In the skimpy, C19 fun news category comes the following:

Burger King Italy has playfully added another layer to social distancing with the debut of a new Whopper , triple-loaded with onions, to keep others at a safe physical distance amid the pandemic.

I'm here to report that there is hot fresh coffee and water for DIY tea plus a generous supply of Sara's cookies -- that is except for the oatmeal raisin. ;)

Finally back home, where I can drop by and say Hi! My Pear tree blossomed on time this Spring but my dogwoods are all just blossoming now, and my apple trees have just began to blossom. With all the rain the past few years, just about my entire tree cove has doubled in height! No exaggeration. I am hoping to put in some poplars and maples. Then I will have a nice tightly cropped mix of about 6 deciduous and 2 conifer,types. The first six types are tightly planted to insure competitiveness for sunlight. The reason for it is to produce trees with the harder wood than trees that are spaced on a tree farm.

A beautiful day here.
A large sweet tea sounds good

First order of business is the update

latest update on my momma . Her surgery was a huge success and now she is resting comfortably. The pacemaker should keep her ticker in check a long recovery ahead
Please keep the people of the state of Virginia in your thoughts The southwest side is dealing with lots and lots of flooding someone said its worse than the one in 1985

Second order :
Good to see you back around this neck of the woods again Tiger.

Remember it's a holiday weekend(Memorial) so please be careful and remember the reason for the holiday
In celebration of Memorial Day weekend we have fun cookies shaped like flags and flip flops and stars
All are frosted red white and blue and diabetic friendly too
*giving the adorable mascots fresh water and special treats *

Hello everyone! Nice to get a chance to pop on here and catch up with all your news!

So glad to hear your momma is recovering from her op Sara. Big hugs to you!

It's a Bank Holiday this side of the pond, but no special commemoration, just a rather uninspired 'Late Spring Bank Holiday'! Not very spring-like today as it's cold with gale-force winds!

I'll grab a coffee and some of Sara's delicious sounding cookies.

How y'all are? Always a good day when it begins with and early morning visit from our Henrietta-unit. Someday, someone might be able to clue me in on the backstory of 'Bank Holidays'. No doubt it's tedious and boring but then so is my life story. ;)

The really good news is Ms H. did not take all the cookies prepared by Ms S., he says, cryptically.

Later Spacers.

Not sure about the UK but in Canada, a "Bank Holiday" is when government offices and regulated corporations, like banks, get a holiday but the rest of us do not. Schools often get them, too. For instance, at Easter, Good Friday is a a statutory holiday, meaning everyone gets it off, but Easter Monday is a bank holiday, meaning government offices and schools are closed, but most everything else is business as usual.
