Yes, I saw that too, Iris. It looks awesome. Although unusually, Jen's not explained where the paint goes on the bowl - she's taken the photo after the liquid is in the bowl. I'm a bit confused about that (but I won't be doing it anyway - I don't think I've ever been to a party where there's punch. It's not really a British thing, I guess.). Still, it does look great. Jen and John never fail to amaze me with their craft ideas.

Iris, I'm sorry about your rotten week so far. :hug:

No biggie, nl.
Catch up when you can.


eta...
Whoo-boy.
Took my Buddy Car up to the shop
His "Service Engine Soon" light came on last Friday
And while he was running ok,
I just didn't feel right about the light
So up to the mechanic he went.
His transmission is going out.
In fact it's on its last legs
So.... $3,000-$3,500 and I'm out of wheels for a few days.
Cheaper than buying a new car
Which I can NOT afford
And I have been to this garage for years and they've never done me wrong.

Get well soon, Buddy Car.

Oh, no, I realise that the Pearl glitter stuff goes in, but I meant how high the paint goes on the bowl.

I haven't been to many parties in a long time, but I can't recall one which had punch, so I guess it's not a British thing. :) The only time we have something like that would be Christmas and it'd be mulled wine. :drink:

Wine. Just wine. :) I think that counts, Heliona.

I'm at the worn out coughing stage of my cold. Mostly the sniffles are gone. I can breathe. But I'm constantly coughing. Erg.

We had our first cousins get-together since my cousin Patty's passing. Mom gets her nieces and nephews that live close together occasionally for dinner. She had four brothers and three sisters, and most of their kids live away, but a few of us live close enough to have these get-togethers occasionally. Patty is the first of this group to die. We made sure her husband was there and we had a good time. It was a bit sad, but they started telling funny stories about dogs and it went well. :)

Watching "The Hobbit" on TNT.
They are at one of my favorite parts.
Where they have walked into the middle of a battle
Of Stone Giants.

Love the effects of this scene

Yes, the river race is great! :D

Still meaning to catch up...will try soon.

I'm also planning my next holiday. I've decided for part of it to do a 7 day tour through the Canyonlands of the western US. Looking forward to climbing into Antelope Canyon and seeing Horseshoe Bend. Not sure what else to do while I'm in the US though. I thought about a few days in the Canadian Rockies but can't find a short enough tour. Only want something about 5-7 days. Nearly all the mainstream ones are 10 days or more. Any ideas?

But Tooks, I've already done most of the stuff I want to do in the East. Though would like to get back to DC and NYC one day. Also like to see New Orleans but it's a pricey place to tour. I'm trying to cut down on internal flights so staying in the West helps the budget. Then again, I could just see more of Hawaii on the way over or back...

Found out that the person job sharing with me hates the works. Seriously, if you hate a job, you need to move on. Stop being miserable and try something different. I tried that earlier in the year to get away from a horrible boss, but came back later on when they had moved on their own self.

Did I read the river challenge wrong or something? Everyone seems to still be going down the river and Gamling has completed the challenge and gone back to Minas Tirith. Should I bring him back or leave it the way he is now?

No, you didn't read it wrong, Ninui.
It's hard to get all the contestants to start at the same time.
So Just telling/showing us how he went down the river
Is all you need to do.
We'll judge on how he went down.

Maybe we can 'bend' the timeline a bit?
