This week was just crazy busy, so I could not be around much. I see it was a busy week for many though as the site seems more silent than usual, or it was just silent for me. Goodness knows. Plus I have had Wi-Fi and connection issues, too frustrating! Well, my sister is on vacation now, so I will be extra busy, miss Daisy needs to go to the dog parlour, my Mom needs to get to the dentist and this with figuring out how to keep her on oxygen! I am trying to beat a cold, vitamin C is my best friend right now. We'll need to spring clean the home. We have to fit in retail therapy and there must be time for a cocktail or two. This will be the next three weeks. But I will still stop by, I will not forget you all, and I hope you don't forget me. I wish everyone a fantastic Saturday. Any plans for your weekend? Busy times ahead for you? I am off to make lunch. Have a healthy and happy weekend all! Photo is of a flower that reminds me of a type of Protea, though I am awful with names of flowers it is pretty and I wanted to share it here.

I had to work today, but it was a fun work day. We ran an event we call 'Dash & Splash' that took place this morning. Today's event consisted of a 5k run, followed by a 400-meter swim.

Oh no, Jeff, I really hope you get time to rest. But thank goodness you had fun. I wouldn't mind the swim, but the running I will leave to the super fit. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope your week will be kind. :)

Thank you, Dianne. She will be staying home, we can't leave our Mom for too long and we have to get our Mom to the dentist and we need to take her shopping for clothes, all trying to figure out the oxygen issue. But at least we might be able to go for a cocktail or two. Ugh, sometimes technology is a right pain, good luck with your Wi-Fi!

@bluesa I understand, Catherine. I would think there would be portable oxygen available for those who need it, but what do I know? Hope you get to have a cocktail or two. Boy, do you deserve it! Hopefully the new router will arrive in a few days.

@DianneN the medical aid is pathetic and will not supply our Mom with a portable oxygen machine so we'll have to make certain the dentist will have oxygen at hand. Thank you and I hope your new router will arrive asap!xoxox

After doing all those chores and recovering from a cold I do think a cocktail or two or three perhaps, oops is in order! I'm going to hear a band play Sunday afternoon. Hoping it is a little warmer, cold, cloudy and rainy in NJ.

Thank you, Elusive. My biggest worry is my Mom at the dentist, will have to have a strong plan in place for her oxygen needs. I hope you're having a good weekend.

@bluesa does she not have portable tanks she can bring with her?

@ElusiveButterfly the medical aid will not provide them for her since she does not work. So we'll have to make certain the dentist has some available.
