STORY TIME:

Monday night at Weight Watchers:

One of the ladies told a little story, it went like this:

Sitting in the car outside the service station on Monday night last week, she sees ME go into the service station.

I don't see her.

I proceed to the ATM, take out some cash then stroll over to the freezers that hold the ice creams.  I look and look, and look some more... I pick up one, put it down, go to the other side of the freezer, look some more, then I straighten up, and walk out of the shop.

Heading to my car, I change my mind, turn around and go back into the shop.  Straight back to the freezer.  I look at the ice creams again, dither....sigh, and leave, get in my car and drive away.

She sat in her car and clapped her hands at me! 
Totally impressed she was.

She happily recounted that to everyone at the meeting on Monday night!

Me?  Felt very proud of myself.  Wish I'd known she was sitting there watching me though!  I could just as easily bought the bloody ice creams!

Another story:  Again, Monday night, I am about to go to Weight Watchers.  Keera demands her dinner, I tell her 'NO, you will get it when Granddad gets home in 15 mintues'.   So she packs a mental at me, then stares me down as I leave for my Weight Watchers meeting.

20 minutes into my meeting, and I get a text from Brylee.  "Keera is eating the candles in the lounge!"
WTF ?    I get home and yep, she's sunk her teeth into 4 candles, totally ruined them!  Little shit.  Why?  Cos I wouldn't feed her, and then I had the audacity to up and leave for my meeting!  

Consequence?  No special food treats for 3 days.  Candles?  Binned. 

Moral of the story?  Feed the bloody shitty 4 year old, or she will pay you back by ruining your candles!

Today I'm going to Aqua Fit.  After that I'm going to re-aquaint myself with McDreamy, my gorgeous sewing machine.

ONWARD... 

Pissing down with rain this morning... so I'm wavering over whether to go to Aqua or not.  But I did.  I got there a good half an hour early, so I got into the pool and swum laps till everyone else arrived at 9 am.
And I gave it my all and feel FANTASTIC for it.  Tired.  But happy.

It's till raining.  I don't mind at all!
It's cooler.

It has been so hot and humid lately I've actually felt sick most days.

Maybe today I will finally feel normal?

We saw a new product being advertised on the TV last night... so I'm heading off to the supermarket to see if I can find it.  More on WHAT it is later. 

THE MISSING:  well now, after the two comments overnight, I'm left wondering if I should even bother watching it? Sad.  

New Product on the market:


ABOVE:  No holds on this blog!  How does this stuff look?  It's supposed to stop the stink in the bathroom!  We will soon know if it works... Griffin always 'goes' when he gets home from school.  lol

Keera only had a half day at kindy today, so we will both have a nap this afternoon I think.  I'm really tired from lack of sleep and the heat.

7.39 pm:  Well no nap today... for either of us.  Keera was a box of birds... full of energy.  She still is, but sadly for her, it's bedtime.  She's gone down the hallway bawling her eyes out.  Oh well... I know that in 5 minutes she will be out like a light!

It should be a quiet evening here.  It's been raining all day, so the heat level has dropped and I'm not feeling ill.  Long may it last.

WINNER!

I virtually NEVER win a thing.  I think I've won 'something' maybe 5 times in my entire life!

Last night I won the fruit and vege draw at Weight Watchers!
Everyone brings an item of fruit or veges for the draw, then we pull a name out of the 'hat',  and someone wins the lot at the end of the meeting.

I won last night!


ABOVE:  my winnings.  Stew hates silverbeet, so that is all mine!  There's two HUGE marrows there... anyone know what I can do with them?  I've not cooked them before.
I think in another, earlier life they were zucchinis?  lol

I gained .400 grams this week, so have to try harder to resist rubbish!  I had some chocolate this weekend, and a few other things I really shouldn't have eaten.  Serve me right for getting a gain.  

This morning Brylee sees the Orthopedic Surgeon about her shoulder, so we will be going into Hamilton once Griffin and Keera are at school/kindy.
And I will be picking up my sewing machine too.

It better be there!  

After Brylee's appointment, we will probably have a girly lunch together before coming home.

And that is all for now... catch ya later.

ONWARD...

Well it started off as ONE OF THOSE DAYS.  Last night at 11.30 pm my internet connection failed.
When I got up this morning it was still not on.  So I rang SPARK, who made me jump through hoops to get some sort of connection going again.

So right now I've got my laptop directly connected to the modem, as our WiFi is down.  They don't know why.

So.. for now I'm having to sit right beside the modem in the lounge so I can use my computer.

Fun.  NOT. 

Onto Brylee.  Got to the specialist on time, and he was on time too!  A... mazing.  Anyway, upshot of that visit is she has to have a dye injected into her shoulder and a special scan done to ascertain if there is any injury to her shoulder from the dislocations/or causing the dislocations.
If not, the specialist said she just have to mature some more and her ligaments and so on will 'toughen up'.  Till then, she might have more dislocations.

She has very 'mobile' joints apparently, thus causing the dislocation.  Oh well then.. it's just a wait and see exercise.  The scan will take place when we get an appointment, apparently that mighty take some time as there are not that many technicians qualified to do it in the Waikato.  

Sewing machine:  got there and my machine was there!  I expected the service to cost aroudn $100.  WRONG.  'Normal' services cost $140.  Mine?  $208.  I queried the cost?  It had to go to a specialist repair person.  I said what a rip off... so he took of the $8.  Whoop.   

He was nice enough to carry my machine out to my car though, cos it is a right heavy beast!

Brylee and I are now home and taking a break before heading out to pick up G & K.

APRIL THE GIRAFFE:  very restless today... and her udders are filling up... EXCITING!  Baby can't be too far away now surely???????

10.55 pm:  So it's been a fairly usual afternoon/evening.  I cooked macaroni cheese with bacon and onion for dinner.  I had a small helping and now have reflux... obviously too stodgy for my stomach.  Grrrrr.
Slowly learning what I can't eat if I want to stay reflux free.

Thanks for all the ideas for the zucchini!  I think I will try one where I bake it in the oven.

We started watching a new series tonight, 'The Missing'... it's been a bit confusing as it keeps skipping forwards and backwards in time.  But... it looks like it will be an interesting programme to watch.

Time to sign off for the day.  Catch ya tomorrow.

NO TITLE, NO IDEA

Well... I'm at a loss at what to post about today!

The only thing on my agenda is to get the kids to school/kindy, come home and do the housework!

Oh and ring the Sewing Machine Shop and find out, where the hell is my sewing machine?
It's now been away getting serviced for over 3 weeks!  I want my bloody machine back!

I keep thinking that they have lost it, or broken it... cos it should have been back over a week ago.
I'm worried.

Here's a cute little collage from yesterday:


ABOVE:  These were taken in the morning, when he was feeling bright and happy.  Later on in the day he was over tired and grumpy.
He is picking up words like a parrot now... he repeats or tries to say virtually everything he hears.  So cute.  One of his favourite words right now is 'Naughty'... and he uses it heaps!  

He really is rather adorable.  And of course Keera and Dante are too! 

So... let's get moving, get the day started and see what eventuates...

ONWARD...

Well... I thought Archer was sickening for something yesterday, he had a temperature and today?  Spots on his hands, feet and in his mouth.  So he's no doubt got the Hand Foot and Mouth virus. Bex is taking him to the Doctor today to get him checked, but he should be just fine.

Just talked to the owner of the sewing machine shop.. he's in Auckland.  So is my machine.  SOMEWHERE.  He's going to try and track it down and find out why it's not been returned yet.  OMG  I am getting so cross with them.
They have had my machine for 5 weeks tomorrow!!!
I told him if it's not been serviced YET, I don't want it done, just get it back to me NOW.  LIKE NOW NOW NOW.  He got the message.

Now I have to wait to hear back from him.  Waiting... waiting...

Sooooo.. an hour later, and my machine has been 'found', and it will be back in Hamilton TOMORROW.  I am beyond annoyed that I had to get all cross and angry with them before they would get off their arses and get my machine back to me!  I will NOT be taking my machine back there for a service again, that's for sure!

Well the past few hours have been spent vacuming, washing floors and cleaning the fronts of all the kitchen cupboards, and keeping an eye on the giraffe!

Just now we had a massive downpour, one minue the sun was shining, then it went pitch black and it pissed down!  Thankfully it stopped after a little while cos it's almost time to pick up the kids.

I've got Weight Watchers tonight, followed by Patchwork Group night meeting. But I don't think I want to go to the night meeting  today... I've got a damn sore back.

9.50 pm :  And I gained .400 grams this week... I expected it too.  But, not a huge gain, so relieved about that.
I did go to the patchwork meeting, but wish I'd stayed home. It was stifling in the house we were meeting at, and I spent the ENTIRE time fanning myself with a plastic page from my folder!  

So relieved to get home and sit in front of the fan.
Winding down now... and off to bed in another couple of hours.

SLEEPING IN?

All going well... I'm getting a sleep in!
Bex has offered to look after Keera so Stew and I can BOTH sleep in this morning.

This is a 'forward post'... cos really, I'm probably asleep!

lol

What we get up to today will be dependent on the weather.  It's supposed to rain.  So it will be an 'inside' day most likely.  The little kids will be happy to play with each other no doubt. 

Bex and I will be in the sewing room for a little while.  Bex wants to use my rotary cutter to cut out some little bags.

I might... I say MIGHT, have a go at finishing off that little giraffe.  I've not felt like sewing at all lately.  No idea why.
So having Bex here might motivate me to get going again?

And that's all for now!  Zzzzzz.....

ONWARD...

Well... we got a sleep in ... sort of.  I woke up every hour during the night with a massive hot flush.
It's SUGAR.  I had dessert last night, and BOOM... hot flushes all night.  So, lesson learnt. Stop eating sugar!
Not rocket science.

Woke with a massive headache and backache.  Took some pain killers, and now, 2.5 hours later I'm feeling ok again.

The kids are happily playing, so Bex went into the sewing room to cut out bags.


 ABOVE:  hard at work.  While she did that, I sorted out a few more photos for the kids.  I came across this one:


ABOVE:  I showed Steve and Bex... it's of Steve when he was about 4.  It looks JUST LIKE DANTE.  Then I showed it to Dante, and asked him "Who is this Dante?"
He immediately said "That's ME!"

It is uncanny how much he looks like his Dad.  It has been really lovely going through all the photos of my kids when they were little.  So many memories.

I hope they treasure and appreciate the photos like I have. 

Time to start handing them out now, I've sorted them all finally!

ANON from yesteday:  As I've said over and over again, if anyone leaves a nasty comment, it will be deleted asap.  So... you wasted your time didn't you.  

Just spent a lovely half an hour out in the garden with the kids... watching them play.  Then a huge cloud came over and within a minute it was pissing down!
So a mad dash to get inside and get all the wide open windows closed.

Stew just took all the security stays off the bedroom windows for me.  I was constantly worried that the kids couldn't escape out a window in the event of a fire.  So now that's done and I can relax about that.

Well... it's now almost 8.30 pm and we have had a very happy afternoon!

Our dear friends Jacqui and Martyn came over from Tauranga with their two kids for a visit.
They ended up staying for dinner, and Jacqui even made dessert for everyone (chocolate self saucing pudding), which was lovely with cream on top.


ABOVE:  Jacqui cooking in my kitchen, such a novel sight!  *smiles*

This afternoon was noisy, chaotic, and totally lovely!  At times even 'naughty'... some of our conversations sure took a twist in totally inappropriate directions!  But it was neat.
They obviously feel very 'at home' here.  *smiles*

After dinner, everyone left for their homes.  The 'C's to Tauranga, and Steve and Bex to Auckland.

Now all is quiet here, Keera is in bed and I'm looking forward to watching Broadchurch a bit later on.

So, time to sign off for the day, after a lovely weekend.

VISITORS TODAY

We are expecting Steve, Bex and the boys this afternoon.
It feels like ages since they were down here.

Keera is going to really enjoy having the boys to play with for sure.

Sadly, I don't have any jobs for Steve to do!
Well... not right now anyway *smiles*.

Once we have Mum's birthday party done and dusted, and our Wedding Anniversary too.. I can start saving towards my front door 'porch'... then I will have something for Steve to do!

We are going down to our local shopping centre this morning, just for a wander around.  We hardly ever go into Cambridge 'town' ... cos we prefer the mall in Hamilton.  But, it will kill some time this morning if nothing else.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Kelly, a big 35 today!  Wow, my kids are getting on in age!  And I don't even feel old yet.  lol
March sure has a lot of birthdays in this family!

OK... I'm off to get the washing done, then feed the small kid, bla bla bla.

ONWARD...

Well it wasn't that nice in town... steady drizzle made it a bit wet.  But, we did have a good look around.  Ended up at the Warehouse, where we bought a few bits 'n' bobs... Easter eggs!
Something tells me I'll be having some this year.

APRIL the Giraffe... still hasn't had her baby... and the Live Cam of her has gone down.  I feel like my right arm has been cut off!
Just our luck she will spit that baby out now that we can't see her.  *sniff*

AND... giraffe cam is back.  It was down for over an hour... panic over.  lol  Addicted to April.


ABOVE:  This is April... expecting any time now.  The other giraffe is Oliver, the baby Daddy.

Steve and Bex are on their way... so looking forward to seeing them.  I want to discuss my front door thingee with Steve.

7.09 pm:  And it's been kinda busy here!  Lacy and her boyfriend (new guy, but knew him 10 years ago) arrived on their way to Tauranga for a few days.

ABOVE:  Keera enjoying chocolate... all the kids got chocolate then got all hyper!  Whoops.


ABOVE:  Lots of fun and games this afternoon.

Dinner tonight was Beef Spare Ribs cooked in a Spare Rib Marinade, mashed potatoes and steamed veges.  It was delicious!

I'm looking forward to Coronation Street tonight... hopefully all the little kids will be in bed asleep by then. 

Winding down.  Enjoying our visitors.

GROOM AND GROCERIES

Today will go something like this:

Kids to school/kindy.
Tallulah to the groomers in Te Rapa.
Grocery shopping.
Pick up Tallulah.
Home.
Unpack groceries.
Pick up kids.
Cook dinner.
Usual evening.
Bed.

And that's it!

If anything changes, I will come back and yabber on about it.  If not, maybe I won't be back till much later!


ABOVE:  Visitors last night, him and Ange.  It's so nice when they just pop in.  We had a nice visit with them.

ONWARD...

1 PM:  Got to the groomers, dropped off Tallulah and drove to the supermarket.
Just as I was getting out of the car I get a phone call from the groomers.
PANIC!  What's happened to Tallulah?  Imagining some big dog ate her... only to be told I'd got the wrong day, and she wasn't booked in for a groom until NEXT FRIDAY!

Fuck it.... so I had to turn around and go get her.
I was SO not going all the way back to Cambridge to take her home again, then have to come back to do the shopping, so I rang around and found a baby sitter for her.

Amanda very kindly looked after her for me while I did the shopping.  What a relief. 

Shopping done, dog picked up, home.  It took me over half and hour to get the groceries out of the car and put away... expect 2 big boxes full of pantry items, that Griffin can bring in once he's home.  Big strong boy, can't waste that energy!

And now... I'm having lunch (popcorn, cos it's quick and easy and I'm buggered), then I will do... NOTHING!  lol
After doing nothing, I will pick up the kids and get dinner sorted out.  Silly bugger dinner tonight.  

Cheerios, baked beans, spaghetti and eggs on toast.  YUM.

11.08 pm:  dinner was nice, quiet evening as per usual.  Coronation Street... getting interesting again.  Almost felt sorry for Tracy Barlow tonight!  

Time to head off to bed.

CUTENESS

I started sorting out Griffin's wardrobe last night... but soon gave up.  It's a job for today.

Anyway... I did haul out one bag that I could see had some interesting stuff in it...

and low and behold:

 ABOVE: Three sets of Christmas lights that I had clear forgotten I had, AND they all worked!  And a pretty little runner, and toys.


ABOVE:  I took the toys out of the bag, and Tallulah slowly 'chose' a few for herself and took them away.  SO CUTE!  She loves, loves, loves toys.  


ABOVE:  Keera was quite keen on the Buzzy Bee... but got carried away and started running with it, and it was swinging around likely to smash something, so I had to take it off her.  It really is for toddlers to pull along, not super energetic 4 year olds!

But she was really cute too.

Yesterday, in the comments section I replied to a comment about drinking Diet Coke.  There were a few replies to my reply... this addresses that:

 ".... I really don't get it. lol"... THAT WAS TONGUE IN CHEEK PEOPLE... I was friggin JOKING!   I am not a fool.  My reflux was caused by several factors:  My eating too many carbs/sweet food, my portion sizes AND probably diet coke too.  Not JUST diet coke.  I am working on all probable causes of the reflux.  And I have cut back on the diet coke by over half... so am not going to feel guilty about that.  

I have not had reflux in about a week, so clearly I'm doing something right. 

I am still going to do my best to cut my diet coke consumption down to as little as possible, without getting dehydrated. And now,  I will leave that subject there.

I have no firm plans for the day,apart from tidying Griffin's wardrobe.  It will be interesting to see what else I find!

ONWARD... 

1.00 pm :  It's been a quiet morning here.  I've mucked around in the house, doing odd jobs and generally being busy.
Just picked up Miss Muppet from Kindy and she's having her lunch right now.

At 2 pm I have an appointment at the kindy to discuss 'getting her ready' for school.
Like... can't imagine what we have to discuss?
Been there, done that like.... 8 times already.
But, I shall humor the teacher, who insisted it was necessary.  *sigh*

Once we are home again, I shall be tackling that wardrobe.  

I'm sitting in the family room, and I can hear this quiet little cry coming from the lounge.  Keera.
So I call out, come here.
She slowly comes into the room, and I ask her what's the matter?
She replies "I can't get my fort made."
So I tell her to wipe her face, cos there is SNOT hanging off her chin... then I go and help her.


ABOVE:  She usually uses cuddle rugs ... but it just wasn't working for her today.  So I got her a single sheet and showed her how to tuck it into the couch cushions... now she's a very happy girl again.
She's a funny wee thing... she just loves making forts for herself and her toys.

She just came into the family room and said "Thank you for helping me make my fort Grandma".  Awwwww.  She melts me sometimes.

So today has been a bit weird.  I was cold for a while, then hot as hell all evening.  Coronation Street is on shortly, so I shall wind up today's post here. Catch ya tomorrow.

AQUA TODAY

Morning!
First up for today I will be heading off to Aqua Fit.  I'm really looking forward to it too.

I need to get away from all these smelly boxes of photos!
Last night I worked on sorting through them until well after 11 pm!

I have ONE more big box to go, then I can relax for a while.

At some point I will have to go through them again and sort out photos for Brylee and Griffin, and one or two other extended family members.
But there's no rush for that to be done.

I found one photo that I want to get reprinted:


ABOVE:  It says 'Grandma 21st December 1903'.  I am not sure who's Grandma she was?  But when my Mum comes over in May I will find out.  She was either my Mum's Grandmother, or my Father's.

Family history is really interesting don't ya think?

Once the photos are done, I will be getting back to some sewing I hope.  

HAPPY 9th BIRTHDAY TO OUR GRANDDAUGHTER RENA!  One more year of single digits!  Have a wonderful day.

ONWARD...

1.41 pm:  well... I've been super busy today!  Just fluffing around the house mostly... getting washing done, tidying up rooms and so on.
Aqua was good, but a bit cold!
There is hardly any sunshine today, I even thought it was going to rain at one point... so the washing got hung in the garage.

I'm now relaxing for a while! 

Can you believe it?  I'm COLD!  Yep, sitting still for a while and ... cold!  It's WONDERFUL.  So over being unbearably hot all the time.  At least if I'm cold, I can put something ON to warm up.  Too hot... can't exactly strip off eh?

 I hope I'm not going to flip and moan about being cold now!  lol

So funny.   Somehow or other, Brylee managed to get the nick name 'Stick It' within our little immediate family.
I think it was from when she was tiny and grizzly, and we would say 'Cry, cry, cry, stick a finger in ya eye'... or something like that. 

Anyway, just now I asked Keera to find Brylee and tell her I wanted her.  (rather than me yell for her).

So Keera took off down the hallway calling out "Stick It, ... Stick It, my Grandma wants you!"

I just had to smile my head off.  Then Keera came back into the room and told me she had called her sister 'Stick It'... very proudly.  Awwwww. 

Well it's been an uneventful day ... but productive, which I love.
Time to sign off for the day... with no new baby giraffe either I might add.  *sigh*  
It's so... addictive watching her!

PHOTOS

Well.... once I get the kids to school 'n' kindy I will be coming home and making a start on sorting out those photos.

In the process I will find more photos of my Mum over the years, for the photo boards for her birthday party.

And basically, that is about all I have planned for the day.

I am bound to take breaks and do a few odd jobs around the house too.  Washing/ vacuming/ bit of this 'n' that.  As ya do.

I didn't go to Weight Watchers last night.  I caved and started drinking diet coke again... and OMG... I GAINED 4 kilos in a week!  WTF is with that?

FLUID RETENTION.  Pure and simple.  I knew it was happening... I could SEE IT in my face!
Totally devastating.  So I'm taking a fluid pill today and will no doubt pee out half of that in one go!  Yep, that's how much I've got 'on board' right now.

I'm going to water down the diet coke with ice, so I'm not drinking so much.
The milk?  Just can't keep drinking it... not helping with weight loss at all.

I feel like I take two steps forward, then one back... so bloody sick of it.  But, I WILL NEVER GIVE UP. 

ONWARD...

Two things have derailed my plans so far this morning.
Firstly, I decided to type up the new, revised Patchwork Group list, and another list to give everyone, with just names and phone numbers on.

So, I'm halfway through doing that when I realise I NEED to still be watching the friggin giraffe April, so I do this:


ABOVE:  both computers going... so I can keep an eye on that bloody giraffe!

Next thing to derail my morning... I go to check my emails.
And for the umpteenth time this year (already), I'm locked out of my email account!
I am so angry at this point, but start to go through the steps to 'recover' my account.
Only... I can't sign into my 'recovery email account' either.
FUCK IT.
So I have to create yet another account, so I can be sent the friggin code to get into my primary account.
This has taken me almost an hour to accomplish.

I thought anti-viral protection was supposed to stop this sort of shit from happening?  Grrrrrrr.

Moving on... I have now finished both 'tasks', and can get on with the photos.

Thanks for the suggestions re: photo timelines, scanning etc.  I will give it some thought, but if it's going to be a mission for me to work it out, I will be giving it a miss.  I am over computer crap!

I am crabby as hell right now!

Well... it's now 8.09 pm and I'm still sorting photos!
I did stop a few times to do stuff like pick up kids from school/kindy, cook dinner and so on.
But really, I've been at it for hours!

ABOVE:  I think I've made a dent in it!  The bins are photos for each kid.  Then there's ones I'm keeping, ones for other family members, ones for the party... and on and on it goes!

I will be very happy once it's DONE... but for now... it's wind down time.

PATCHWORK, AND ROUNDABOUTS

Patchwork group is on this morning, so that's something to look forward to.

But before that, I've got to take the kids to school 'n' kindy... and for the first time in over 3 months I can go the 'normal' way... but with a vast improvement.

There is now a big roundabout at the end of the main road, which will mean getting to and from the schools will be so much quicker and easier!

3 months of diversions, 3 months of frustration every morning and afternoon, trying to get across that main road using detours,  through the damn traffic, along with everyone else.

They opened up the roundabout to the main road on Friday, and boy did I go WHOOP WHOOP!!!

Now my trip will be so quick and easy.  I can't wait to try it out.

Bex has been a busy girl:

ABOVE:  She has been sewing!  Pillowcases for the boys, wheat bags, and a little drawstring bag.  Well done Bex!

ABOVE:  a couple of nice photos from yesterday... butterfly and bee.  *smiles*

Lastly for this early morning start.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUSTON.  15 today... we hope you have an awesome day.

ONWARD...

Well isn't it quiet today!
 But not here.  I've been at patchwork group, where I spent the entire morning going around talking to everyone, getting their updated details for the mailing list I'm working on.
I have two notices to send out asap, so have to get this updated and done today.
So, that will be my afternoon... collating and typing up the 2017 Group List.

It was wonderful to finally get to talk with everyone in the group (well, all that were there today), and feeling a real part of the group finally.

After I've done that... my next BIG job is this:


ABOVE: Photos.   Lots and lots of photos.  90% are mine.  The other 10% are what my Mum left here for me (I don't want ANYONE thinking I've just taken them).   It's time to de-clutter, and give all the kids some.  
I'm also still gathering photos for my Mum's photo boards, for her 80th Birthday Party.
That will be another big job.

Question:  When you are sending an email out to over say... 40 people,  do you choose Bcc so they get it, but don't see all the other email addresses?

Thanks for the help with that girls.

Like usual, quiet night here.  I'm watching TV, and the giraffe, and listening to GLEE too.  *smiles*  Us girls can multi-task for sure.

Winding down for the day.  Very pleased with my efforts today.
