JanF :: Tuesday Morning Herd Check-in: Grazings and Greetings of the Moosekin
If you are new to the Moose, Kysen left a Moose Welcome Mat (Part Deux) so, please, wipe your feet before you walk in the front door start posting.

The important stuff to get you started:
- Comments do not Auto-refresh. Click the refresh/reload on your tab to see new ones.
- To check for replies to your comments, click the "My Comments" link in the right-hand column (or go to "My Moose"). Comments will be listed and a link to Recent Replies will be shown. (Note: Tending comments builds community)
- Ratings: Fierce means Thumbs Up, Fail means Thumbs Down, Meh means one of three things: I am unFailing you but I can't Fierce you, I am unFiercing after a mistaken Fierce, or Meh. Just Meh.
- Ratings don't bestow mojo, online behaviour does.
- Only click Post once for comments. When a diary's comment thread gets longer, it takes a bit to reload and the comment may not display as quickly. Clicking the Post button twice posts the comment twice. (h/t Khloe)
- When creating a new diary, remember to choose the Draft option (near the bottom) while you are working on it. Choose the Public option when you want to publish it. (h/t Khloe)
- Finally, the posting rules for a new diary: "Be excellent to each other... or else"

(Some other commenting/posting/tending notes for newbies can be found in this past check-in and, of course, consult Meese Mehta for all your questions on meesely decorum.)

Here is a great link to have open in a tab: Motley Moose Recent Comments

Recap: (2.00 / 12)
- Out of surgery at 5pm Pacific
- At least one hour of recovery then to his room

If he was in surgery for 3+ hours, my guess is that he will be in recovery longer.

I'm going to go up first thing in the morning and deliver his worldly possessions including his phone. I'll let you know how our visit goes."

Good morning! (2.00 / 24)
There is going to be a cold rain today. It's 33 degrees now and will go up to 39. We may have freezing rain tonight, but most likely the freezing rain will stay up in the mountains.

I woke up thinking of slksfca. I see I am not the only one :-)

Thanks for any updates.

I'm almost ready to leave for work. I'm glad I was able to check in here first!

Peace, Hope, Faith, Love

Morning moosekind (2.00 / 25)
27 here in the Shenandoah Valley, headed for a high of 40 or 41 depending on which weather service you ask. Supposed to have sleet and freezing rain and all whatnot, but the timing is listed as right when the temperature is highest so who knows. I expect light rain.

In keeping with today's theme, thinking of slksfca. Is someone here due to be informed how things went?

Morning all. Thank goodness for UPS system as the power has (2.00 / 23)
gone out here (Columbia).  We got 5-6 inches of the wet, heavy stuff.  The wind howled all night and the trees are bent over.  We are almost out of the snow area and no more should be falling in about an hour.  Happily, the temperature is above freezing.   Guess I should have either grabbed a shower or made some coffee when I got up at 5:45 but did neither.  Hope the power isn't out too long because the beeping of the UPS battery is going to drive me nuts.  (No pleasing me!)

To me UPS stands for United Parcel Service so I'm not able to make heads nor tails of your post except to hope that your power is back on by the time you read this.

Yay! I'm so glad CenturyLink provided me with one since they (2.00 / 15)
were never able to figure out why my internet went out so often.  I was able to check in with the power company and found that only 2500 customers in my area lost power.  That had it restored in about 45 minutes.  I live in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Columbia, lots of trees which no doubt caused the outage.

Yes it was so windy yesterday in SA (2.00 / 17)
nearly knocked me off my feet as I was pumping gas.

32 currently. Forecast shows at least 10 more days of lows in the 30's & 40's and highs in 60's and 70's.

Good morning everyone (2.00 / 23)
31 here in St. Charles.  I think it's just gonna rain here but we will see.  Here is hoping for a smooth surgery for Scott today and a quick recovery in the days to come.  Have avgreaybday everyone.
Oh, that haircut I was gonna get my two year o,d yesterday?  Didn't happen, he freaked out just getting to the chair.  So we left after I apologized to everyone.  Ugh.  So after his nap I sat him in the middle of the kitchen table and cut it myself.  So, add that to the list of things my mom self is doing that I never thought I would do.

Sorry your 2-year-old didn't like the haircut (2.00 / 16)
Isn't it odd that certain things seem so upsetting to some kids. And it's not the same things for every kid either. Wonder what it is about haircuts or even the chairs that freak a lot of kids out? Because your son is far from alone.

Hope you do just get rain. They're predicting ice here, but it's supposed to be so warm that I'm skeptical.

34 degrees here in Northern Virginia (2.00 / 25)
With sleet and freezing rain promised for later.  If it happens it will be the first correct weather forecast for several weeks.

Still recovering from the first 45 minutes of the Oscars--was so overcome by vulgarity I fainted and had to have an IV of strong English tea to be revived.  I keep hoping that next year the Oscar emcee will be funny--but, sadly, that doesn't happen any more than the weather forecast coming true.

Bob Hope did it well.  Why can't they bring him back to life (holographically, of course) and let him do it again?

Must go off to toast the crumpets for breakfast, then slather them with melted butter and honey.  Yes, really.

I don't know slksfca but join the other meese (moose?) hoping for the best outcome with the surgery today.  


I LOVE crumpets! Used to find them occasionally in a Houston (2.00 / 17)
grocery store but nowhere in Colorado Springs or so far in Columbia.  Good with honey but I especially liked them topped with butter and the wonderfully southern mayhaw jelly.

In fact, I'll admit my ignorance. What's a crumpet? I'm assuming some sort of baked or pastry product given the melted butter and honey.

Crumpets (2.00 / 11)
Trader Joe's has crumpets that crisp up wonderfully in the toaster but they taste like saltines. Maybe I'll look for better ones now that you've mentioned them.

in Austin, going to Dallas (2.00 / 23)
don't know how much I'll be online the rest of the week. My mom is back in the hospital -- she was there the first week of February, had been moved to a rehabilitation place to get stronger, but got worse yesterday & is back in the hospital. The weather was insane yesterday & my brother didn't want me driving in it (40 mph winds here, snow in Dallas -- just north of Dallas in the Panhandle, highways are shut down). But it looks ok today. I just need to trade some work duties around, consume some caffeine & go. Maybe some food and caffeine.

Thanks so much for yesterday - that was really nice. If I can put together a diary for the day donations will be matched, I will. Music will probably revert to U2 (I'm just a little obsessed)

Cold and rainy in Dandridge, TN. (2.00 / 23)
And glad to be here for it.

Still and always love the adventure of travel, but god I love to be home.

Getting back a day early I managed to be there last night when my daughter was inducted into the middle school Honor's Society, which was wonderful beyond words. A gymnasium full of kids and parents, Roxy walking across the stage, cake in the cafeteria. She didn't want to do it but was ebullient and chatty afterwards. Determined not to have me say anything that would draw attention, but smiled when she turned in her chair at the front of the hall (the benefit of alphabetic seating) and saw me give a surreptitious thumbs-up.

They gave me a big crystal trophy for my talk in Doha. I threw it away in the bathroom at the airport so I wouldn't have to check a bag (and security brought it back to me at the gate, which was sweet). I'll keep the trophy until it just becomes something else taking up space and gets sorted out of the house, but that small smile will stay with me forever.

It is the little things, no? (2.00 / 17)
I always sit in the very back at things because I get physically uncomfortable in the middle of crowds. But even now my daughter (now 16) will peer around looking for me whenever she hits the stage and give me a smile or a barely-there wave.

Glad you made it back in time for that.

[ Parent ]
Thanks, me too. (2.00 / 15)
'Small' is a relative thing. I appreciate the invite to speak in Doha, and the mechanical effort to get an award made up with my name on it. But those were small efforts so I appreciate them in a small way. I like the bit of tape on the top of the award more (may leave that on), because some folks at the airport were kind enough to pull it out of the trash, find out where I was, write that on a piece of paper and tape it on and get it to me. That was nice.

But that smile? That was a big thing.

I really like the way it looks here after a big blow with everything stirred up and scoured clean. I'm trying to convince mr w to blow off chores to go out exploring the draws to see what has been uncovered. He's trying to convince me I'm impeding progress and we could get another window in today if we stayed home. An appeal to my practical side will sometimes win out but it's never my first thought.

Still sleepy but trying to wake up. It's harder without coffee. I am REALLY jonesing for a nice hot mug full.

All packed, just have to keep myself busy until 9:00 when I'll get dressed and wait for the doorbell. The intrepid navajo has volunteered to be my chauffeur, which is extremely kind of her.

44* and cloudy in Bellingham today.... (2.00 / 14)
And at some point in time there will be rain....and more primroses. I can see an empty pot from the kitchen window so more spring color is needed!

Love is the lasting legacy of our lives

So... (2.00 / 17)
...navajo has just texted me to say she's on her way. I'm signing off now to take care of a couple of last-minute things. Thanks again to everyone for the outpourings of love and support, and I'll check in when I can. Hugs to all!

A very late good morning Purple Folk... (2.00 / 13)
Still a little breezy in my part of North Texas. Yesterday was definitely a blustery day, good grief! Thinking about all my family, friends and fellow Moose in the snowy areas...My family in Lubbock is not impressed with all the snow. My aunt in particular had a few, ahem, vibrant descriptions regarding her opinion of snow on her Facebook page. In short she's not impressed!

Working on a few little orders today.After all the talk about crumpets, I would love to find time to bake, but I don't think that will happen. SOOO I guess I'll indulge in a nifty recipe I found on FB for making little single servings of cake made in the microwave. 1 box of Angel Food cake mix and 1 box of whatever flavor you like (Swiss chocolate for the rest of the family, sugar free Pillsbury chocolate for me) Mix the two together in a gallon size zip lock bag. To make a little mini cake, stir together 2Tbs of water and 3Tbs of mix in a large coffee cup. Pop the cup into the microwave for 1 minute. Eat it plain or add any kind of topping you like. We made up frosting for the big cake eaters and keep it in the fridge, I like a little butter or whip cream on mine. It's simple and it works for that little something quick and sweet..

Sending good thoughts and healing vibes to Scott as he undergoes his surgery today :o)

Thank you for the recipe (2.00 / 13)
It will feed my dessert addiction AND provide a use for my mugs with business names of long-ago clients. It's a nice way to remember them, now with more sweetness!

Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.

made it to Dallas (2.00 / 6)
Word of advice - never pack when you're thinking about other stuff. I left my glasses at home, so I have to wear my contacts till bedtime. Will call my eye doc tomorrow & ask them to e-mail my prescription so I can get a cheap pair from a 1 hour place.

Anyway, my mom is being kept sedated because of all the tubes. We went by to see her, stayed about 20 minutes. She seemed to be trying to wake up, but until the tubes come out of her throat, that would probably be a bad idea.

Hanging out at my mom's apartment, watching tv. Putting eye drops in about every 15 minutes. I know it is totally psychosomatic, because I can't take my contacts out.

Tomorrow: hospital, gym (I know how to get to the gym without getting lost), hospital. Glad I've got 2 books.
