Cowart's Common Room

Hello to the Owls.!

Hope you enjoyed a happy Saturday and the weather was kind for you all.

It is too late for me to scatter some Hollyhock seeds for this year, so hoping to buy some in the way of plants tomorrow, love the Hollyhocks.

I remember my HL's uncle many years ago when we used to arrive at our holiday cottage here in Norfolk(sold years ago), his comment arriving at the gate was.......... Hollyhocks, nothing but bloomin Hollyhocks.!Smile

Kettle is boiling so off to make a brew, see you later owls.

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

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Oh, my; what glorious pictures. As always, Camilla.

Bear's day started out well, had a mid-morning nap (strange behaviour), got a number of things done in our yard, and helped our daughter for a while. Finished my lunch mid-afternoon (yogurt and cake) and had my afternoon nap. Woke up feeling terrible, with a variety of symptoms. I'm apparently developing a gluten intolerance. Fortunately, I see my doctor in a couple of weeks for my annual medical; we'll review this "peculiarity" at that point. That aside, Bear is reasonably well; Miss Sadie is even better.

We're back from a walk, and now I'm going to see about making a late supper. If my stomach will tolerate the idea. Confused

slow night on the perch tonight, Camilla.

I wonder if a Bear my size has scared away all the gentle owls. Sad When you're big, even when you're trying to be gentle, people can become uneasy. Sad

Bear is going to perform a magic act! He's going to disappear. Wink

He'll be back in another form later this morning. Shocked

Max, Tiddles and the clock have all received their proper attention. Didn't have time to check on Tiddles, and what got to her. Tomorrow, perhaps.

Sleep well, good Owls!.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Bear.!

Thank you, you could never scare anyone away, Bear is a gentle Bear.!Smile

Sorry to hear you were not feeling too good after that nap Bear, the gluten intolerance may be the cause. Think one of my friends has the same and she has to have special diet.

Please do let us know what GP says, I can't eat banana's or kiwi fruits or mango's, as much as I love them I steer away from them.

Good to hear Miss Sadie is well, Daisy goes for her grooming session next Tuesday.

Yes, very quiet perch tonight, owls may have hit the sack I think.

Camilla's Avatar SmileSmileLove your wit.......... Bear can perform magic.

Thanks for tending to Tiddles and Clock, so too Max, wait to hear about that cat tomorrow.Smile

Night Night Bear, hope you manage to get a good night's sleep, see you tomorrow.

Camilla's Avatar Just going to post some cards over in the forums, back later.

Blackbird's Avatar Oh Camilla, I think that you should plant the seeds anyway- they will bloom next year and maybe do even better with the extra time. And buy some plants so that you don't have to wait to enjoy them. I love hollyhocks too.

Hi Frances, I hope that you've been well.

Frances's Avatar Hello to owls who might still be here.

Bear, two naps in one day? How I envy you, though perhaps not so much the possible gluten bit.

Camilla, I love hollyhocks, remember them from childhood when we used to make little make-believe garden fairies out their blooms.

Just had a good phone chat with my mom, the promised continuation of our very quick call last on Mother's Day, last Sunday. Better to have these calls when it is not a super holiday, with all its extra emotional charging.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances and Blackbird,

Thank you, pleased to hear you got to make that call with your dear Mom Frances, I am sure she loved that pretty crocheted sweet bag you made for her.

How lovely Frances...... garden fairies made out of Hollyhock blooms, I like to think there is fairies at the bottom of the garden.

What a great idea Blackbird.! will scatter seeds anyway, and still be able to plant some too, brilliant.!

Blackbird's Avatar I think that the relationship between mothers and daughters can be so complicated- I know that mine is. But, I am trying to do better with my own daughter.

I was just over in the forums and I am so behind in my reading- the coo has been a busy place lately.

I'm off for an early birthday dinner for my son- steaks on the barbecue with his friends. He will be 18 this week and I'm feeling that I'm in the middle of the lasts- the last big test of high school, the last projects and counting down the weeks to gradation.

Take care dear owls.

Frances's Avatar Backbird, best wishes to your son for that 18th Birthday ... wow... he is really a young adult now.


Posted by: Frances on 16th May 2010 at 02:20AM

Frances's Avatar Camilla, it is way too late for you to still be awake.

Please do rest those pretty eyes, and get re-energized for a a beautiful day outdoors ... weather permitting.

I will see you again tomorrow, right here. Might even get here while Bear is about.


Posted by: Frances on 16th May 2010 at 02:28AM

Camilla's Avatar Night Night Blackbird, happy birthday for your son, please let me kow if you would like me to post a card for him, happy to do so.

Sweet Dreams.
