Good to see you Syx! We don't qualify for section 8 and the huge discount or free rent, but we are both disabled and with our combined income we could get a little help with the rent if we went into a place that went by our incomes. We have to wait and see who buys this place and what they will charge first. One of my Brothers says if he can get it cheaper than what it's appraised for, he might buy it. Still...don't know what he would charge either so...playing the waiting game for now.

Oh, forgot to say, stay well and take care of yourself oh mighty winged one! Also...Hello to everyone, regulars and lurkers!

Syx .... Look after yourself mate. Dragons are a dying breed.

Night .... I would love to know more ... I assume your Mum owned the place so why don't you get a share of the proceeds? It just seems wrong to me!

Everyone ..... What are your expected min and max temps for today. Here it is going up to 42 (107.6F) with an overnight low of 25 (77F) ..... and no snow is forecast here. It is now 10.50am and the temp is 41.1 (106F)

We have a few warnings, the main one being extreme bush fire alert. In these conditions, our Aussie Dragons have to wear a flame proof snout cover just in case they belch.

Last week a fire consumed a huge tract of land, houses went up and we lost lives.

The blaze has destroyed more than 35 homes and 166 sheds within its 265km perimeter. Two people have died, nineteen have been injured and five remain in a critical condition in hospital with serious burns.

Pinery bush fire

So, it is going to be another hot one, well, for me anyway.

Hi pheonix,

Boy, I do not envy you. I so dislike heat at my age. LOL!!!

Today for my High, it was 44F (-6), and my low will be around 28F (-3)

A beautiful day in my opinion. Sunny skies, and a mild wind.

It has been cold enough in the evenings that ice is forming on the lakes. WOO HOO!!! Ice Fishing.

If it is a long post, always save it before you post. You are old enough and wise enough to know this.

But yeah .... it is good advise but sometimes we all just stuff it up, lol.

I hate when it happens.

Sophie and Jacy pushed open the Shed door and quietly slipped inside.
"Phew, we're getting too old for this shi...."
"HUSH your mouth!!" Jacy cut her off. "We're home some respect!"
Sophie heaved a sigh. "Should we wake the others?"
"No...let them rest...they've been busy."
So the two weary warriors climbed into bed and quickly drifted into a peaceful slumber. With smiles on their faces, they knew they were safe...they knew they were home.

Thank you for the birthday wishes! I hope everyone is well! (Hope to see you soon!)
Love to all,
jacy (& Sophie) xoxoxo

Good Morning Walkin,

I know it's been a few day's since you posted this, and as I explained, it is not that I didn't appreciate your words, but I needed time to really take the time to think about what you said in your reply.

Today, I have set aside the day for me. And the first thing I am doing today is reponding to your post.

First, Thank you. Now that I have time to sit down and really read and take in what you have said, I realize how important to me your words are.

I have spent the last 20+ years taking care of others needs. And, I never considered my needs (not met) because of course I was doing what I chose to do. Have a family, and take care of them.

Now that my Children are of the age that they can take care of themselves, as they should, I still find myself, when faced with choices, the first thought is still ( Will my choice be good for everyone.) I guess I am considered a people pleaser.

I am very good at being a chameleon. LOL!!!! Maybe too good. Now that I have the time for myself, I'm not sure what will make me happy.

I always taught my kids, and lived, to give back to my community.

I guess now I am searching for a way to give back to my new community, and also Make myself happy and content.

Right now I have issue's with my affilliation with a group. Where I came from, I was accepted and I felt needed. And it made me feel good about me.

Now, the group I have belonged to for so long, (I feel) only want me to join them if I have lots of money to give and lots of time to give. I have no problem giving my time, but the money thing really pisses me off.

So I have not participated in things that I normally would. I am even considering going back to another group that I belonged to when I was younger.
But for some reason, and I don't know what it is. I'm kind of unconfortable with that and I don't know why. "They" have been very welcoming, but I hesitate.

Are you getting where I am coming from? I know I have been kinda all over the place here. I just don't know how to explain it.

My question to you. I'm not really sure what the question is, much less the answer. I'm Stuck!!

I remember a scene from the "Sound of Music" (Love that movie) where the Nun is comforting an old lady who is crying for her Children. And the Nun replies, " The best gift you can give to your Children is for you to be happy" Alway's makes me cry.

You mentioned the native's. I think it sucks the way things have been segregated. When I visit area's where other's live, I almost feel more relaxed and comfortable. I was invited by a women at a small store to look into learning more about the live's of the native's that live here, even learn their language if I wanted. I'm considering doing that.

This is getting tooo long, so I will stop.

I hope your having a good day.

Thanks for taking the time to read my reply.

As Kat was just starting to wake up she heard some noise. She peeked out and saw that Jacy and Sophie were snug in their bed sleeping.

Oh, Thank God they are home and Safe.

I will start the coffee, and get the pixies to make some sweet cakes.

We have alot of catching up to do.

Hi sweetheart!!

I just read your above reply to WalkIn and I've gotta say....I really relate to what you're feeling!
I've spent my life in what I call "hover mode". I'm always hovering, waiting for someone to need me.

Everyone always comes first, and I seem to spend most of my time either looking after other people...or waiting in hover mode, in case something comes up (and I'm needed).

I haven't got a clue how to put myself first, and have long forgotten what "I" like/want/need. My time here in The Shed was definitely "ME time", and I've been feeling kinda resentful lately that I haven't had the time.
Today I chose me first, and that's why I'm here, lol.

Lovely to see you here today!! Hope you don't mind me 'butting in' on your conversation with WalkIn!

Oh jacy, so good to see you.

Good grief, NO. I am putting it out here in the shed to share. I know alot of folks have the same struggles we have.

The answer's come to some easier than others.

I guess, I am just a slow learner. LOL!!!!

a reply to: crappiekat

That makes 2 of us then (slow learners), lol!!

I often wonder if it's nature or nurture, to be honest.
At a young age I was made to feel responsible for my mother (emotional manipulation). At a young age I already felt like I was the parent and she was the child. I question whether it's just my nature to want to look after other people (feel responsible for their happiness and well-being)...or whether it became my nature due to the lack of a carefree secure childhood...and the responsibility that was thrust upon me....?
Does it even matter at this point?

Ya know when I was a young child, 9-10, I was put in the spot to take care of the younger ones. It was always that way.

Being an only child myself, I liked it. I had someone to play with. But with that fun time, came responsiblity. I'm not complaining, Those years made me who I am today.

I guess what it comes down to is. Now in my life, I really have no one ( I have to) take care of, except me. Maybe I am feeling alittle guilty about that. I'm not doing what I have been taught to do. ( take care of someone else) So Now what am I suppose to do????? LOL!!!!!!

I'm the kind of person, that when I go to a party, I feel more comfortable, helping somehow. I am having fun at the same time.

Welcome home.

Kat - You already know the answer to your dilemma.
Trust and Follow your gut instincts!!

I've had a nice quiet(ish) weekend at home with the family.
Weather has been awful, VERY wet & windy, but we did manage to find a gap big enough to get out and about, so we took the boys down some nature trails by the river earlier.

BlonnaHooley have been offered a New Years Eve gig too!! So we just have to iron out a few details and we might be playing our first gig with the new Hooley very soon!

link's our beloved Jacy! Man am I glad to see you! I hope your birthday was just delightful Honey! I really, really hope you can visit more often. It's difficult when someone goes missing for long periods of time and we are left wondering how they are. I miss your light shining so brightly and making us laugh and smile and filling our lives with such joy!

Hello to everyone else, I don't want to leave anyone out and would make more replies, but still sorting through Mom's things. Trying to sort through some jewelry for my Sister and I and Mom's grandchildren and great grandchildren so they will have some things to remember her by. My Aunt has been very helpful taking clothes and shoes and things for herself and her family and most of it will be donated to people in need that she will take care of for us. My Brothers have taken some items for themselves too.

What a world of beautiful and joyous memories in that apartment. We even found a letter she wrote years ago in case she passed away. It was so beautiful I cried my eyes out. I know she is happy where she is and with Dad and others who have gone before her. I know she and dad wants us all to be happy and to continue our happy holiday traditions and to look out after each other. It's just hard right now, seeing all her things slowly leave and knowing one day I will never be walking through that doorway again to share a meal, spend some time talking and laughing and helping her with things. I'll be ok. I just miss her so much.

Lots to do, but I'll check in on you guys later. I started decorating in here with the faeries and pixies, now it's up to the rest of you to continue. I want to see sparkling little lights and pretty things everywhere when I get back. Now grab a drink and a few cookies and get to it!

Hey Beautiful!! *smooch*
I've been reading back...I'm so very sorry about your mom sweetie! I'm sorry I wasn't here to offer my support.
Glad you're having happy memories going through her stuff. Sadly, finding my dad's porn stash was a very low moment in my life.

Anyways...I was just about to go full blown Canuck and fry up some Maple Syrup flavoured sausages, lol. I saw your reply, and just had to respond.

Hey! Before I go...I wrote another is the link if you're interested!

Have a great night, darling Night! Hopefully see you tomorrow!!
jacy xoxo
