  1. We collect clocks: grandfather, mantle, wall clocks. I think we have about 31. We're not big fans of daylight savings time.
  2. Missymew the Diva Cat

    Deb, I remember when you'd send me a parcel (I still have the adorable heart-shaped catnip bags). I'd ask you to let Napoleon climb into the box so that my girls could have a good sniff when the package arrived. They so enjoyed Napoleon's gift of scent ;)
  3. Interest In Weightloss Support Topic Here?

    I lost over fifty pounds by the time my Graves Disease had reached its peak and I got treatment (radio-active iodine). Its been a year and a half and I've maintained the weight loss. My endocrinologist is very proud of me. I changed my eating habits. I only graze four or five times a day. I'm so used to it that I never feel hungry. Today I had a spinach and hard-boiled egg salad (no dressing). I only eat a small portion and am stuffed for hours. I do drink a lot of water and coffee. While I'm not a tea drinker, I've changed that and Ray makes us a pot of tea that we enjoy when we watch the 6 O'Clock News. I also eat two metamucil cookies with the tea. I need the metamucil as, because my thyroid can speed up at times, everything speeds up and food goes right through me. The metamucil bars help and are very filling. Ray has also taken to eating how I do (mostly raw foods and whole grains). While he eats a good deal more than I do, he's lost weight and feels much better for it. We also get out for walks as often as we can. Recently we had blood tests and physicals (I'll have to have frequent blood tests for the rest of my life), and we both had low-normal blood pressure, low-normal blood sugar readings, and my thyroid readings were in the normal range.
  4. Back yard bird watching

    The Robins returned about two weeks ago. Love hearing their song. They're attracted to our garden as Ray keeps our birdbath nice and fresh. We also keep it safe by having trellises surrounding the birdbath so that cats can't leap up and catch the birds while they're vulnerable in the bath. We have a junco (they usually fly in and stop and feed up over about a two week period in Spring and Summer while heading further north and then back south again) that mated a couple of years ago with a sparrow (they're of the same family but seldom mate). Its so exciting having them stay all year round and the baby junco-sparrows are juncos with one or two sparrow feathers. The chickadees are busy making lots of "mating" calls; however, they'll head down to the ravines soon to nest. Of course, there's our resident squirrel and her latest "beau" or "paramour". He's much bigger than her and has different markings. Trinity (my little black cat) and I love to watch them through the window. Ray's job is to be sure there are lots of peanuts in the feeder to encourage them to come up close to the window for us to have a better look.
  5. What are Your Fondest High School Memories? 5/9/09

    School dances. I love to dance. Also, I have a male friend that I went to high school with that I'm meeting for coffee next week. He and I went to H.S. together, worked at our first job together, and then both ended up working for the City until our retirement (he two years ago...me a year and a half ago). Its so nice to keep in touch with someone who's known you through high school and working years. When you retire there are a lot of changes in your social life. Friends you keep and still see, and many that you never see again.
  6. 5/22/08 What Made You Smile Today?

    Orange. He's a neighbour cat that comes into the yard to visit. I'll have to share a story about Orange and his brothers, Chewy, Smokey and Oreo. They live down the street and come into our garden everyday. Anyone that knows me from way back is aware I have a fondness for big male tomcats. These four boys come into our yard and are so delightful. My two old girls are aging and not very sociable.
  7. 1:12 scale dolls

    If anyone is interested, I've listed four of my dolls on Ebay under seller name Missymew101. I'm downsizing as I've just too many to put into my scenes.
  8. Two room room box

    My back is getting sore, so I'll have to take some more photos (I'll delete some of these later) and take more photos with the plexiglass taken off. Darn, I wish I had more energy.
  9. Two Room Roombox

    Darn, once again reflection from our windows through plexi-glass.
  10. Two Room Roombox

    Just noticed, should have taken the plexi-glass front cover off. There's a reflection.

    Closer photo of change table and back of nursery.
  12. Two room room box

    From the album Two Room Roombox

    I put my iPhone back into the room box to get a better view of the backside of the room and the picture I put in the window (as we just have a wall behind the room box).

    I had to place this great big puff-cheeked tomcat on the change table.

    From the album Two Room Roombox

    Photo looking down on the Nursery side of room box. I like when the sunlight shines naturally through the window to the left. I didn't put a photo in that side as that window is lit by our south facing living room window. When the light comes through at certain times of the day, it is just so beautiful.
  15. Two Room Roombox

    From the album Two Room Roombox

    Nursery side of room box. The "Nanny" is a Heidi Ott doll, as is the baby in the crib. Once again, I'll have to take a close up shot of the beautiful Christening gown and bonnet that I bought for this particular Heidi Ott baby. Its absolutely stunning. The crib was another one of Serena Johnson's creations, while the two shelving units are Bespaq. I forget the artisan who made the change table.
