Cowart's Common Room

Another bitingly cold day and just now the wind has got up, quite a fierce wind too. I read in the news that it is the coldest start to winter since 1976, I do believe that year we had one of the hottest summers too.

So wrap up warm and don't forget to tuck your vests in.Smile

Off to make a hot cuppa, see you later.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Frances's Avatar Hello all who may still have their eyes open.

Strong chilly wind is blowing tonight in New York, but that big full moon is just above to light us up!

I was in a pre-Christmas prep frenzy today, back and forth to the post office, finishing cards, signing cards, finishing gifts, getting a few more paperwhites going toward their Christmas blooming, answering calls from the shop ....

So much still unfinished. No baking yet. Cannot exactly recall the last time I dusted or vacuumed this apartment.

Tried unsuccessfully to reach several friends across the seas via phone. Missed several calls from some local friends.

Back to the shop early tomorrow morning, and my unfinished Christmas projects will just have to take a day or two off.

Who is still awake?

TIGGYWINKLE's Avatar Hi Frances, Just on my way to bed. It's my little grandson Rascal's 2nd Birthday today, have just been talking to him in sunny Australia. Bought some presents. Getting decorations down out of loft. Haven't even started on cards. Mr. T moves things in the attic on me, and I can't find a box of decorations. Grrrr. Hope to get house decorating finished tomorrow.

Frances's Avatar Love that name ... Rascal! Get a good night's rest Tiggy, and have a great Saturday. I keep thinking that it really is wonderful to have more enjoyable things to contemplate doing each day, whether we actually get them done or not!

My Christmas decorating will take place next week ... I have been scoping out various sources of greenery ... not enough room for a tree, but plenty of room to bring in that lovely scent of fresh branches, and that brilliance of holly berries.

Frances's Avatar Welcome back, Camilla,

I imagined that you were having log-in/on difficulties.

Camilla's Avatar Sorry I missed you Tiggy, hope you get a good night's sleep and that those decorations turn up that you were looking for.

Love the name Rascal, my husband's cousin has just flown out to Oz with her husband, think they are in Brisbane visiting their son and wife, they will be over there for six months before they fly back to England.

Nighty night Tiggy.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances, thank you.

Yes, was having a problem and knew time was ticking on.

Your Christmas frenzy sounds a tad like mine yesterday, re cards etc., spent ages again writing out more although I have not sent quite so many this year, they have gone.

I hope you do catch up with your friends Frances, I shall be ringing my Sister on Christmas morning.... long story..... and various friends to wish them best wishes.

Don't worry about the hoovering Frances, I am sure the little dust will be fine, but know what you mean about hoovering, I do it and then it comes round again pretty quick.

Those branches and holly berries together with your beautiful paperywhite scented bulbs will look a picture in your lovely apartment Frances.

Frances's Avatar And ... Camilla, I just lost my connection, and return to see that you are still awake at 3:15! No, this will not do...please do switch those lights off, and I will see you tomorrow.

Promise to send you a message if I have any updates for you.


Posted by: Frances on 13th Dec 2008 at 03:19AM

Camilla's Avatar Thank you Frances, you are a very wise dear owl.

I had just lost my connection again a few moments ago, so I will bid you goodnight Frances.

Sweet Dreams, and thank you re the messages, see you tomorrow.
