Mid Week and the End of Another Month


Oh my another month is ending, where did all the days disappear to. I just can not believe it. 

Thought I would share some pictures of the deck planting and Harvey's new contraption to feed the birds.... 

Harvey's, "lets keep the sloppy eaters from spreading their food on the deck" contraption. He is calling it a bird feeding station and it contains a
 meal for every kind of bird we have seen up to this point.

Now for the plantings on the deck. The rest of my garden will be shared later this week.

I will be moving some lights around and now that we have moved the long planter out cleaning up the cement patio and doing a bit of planting in large pots down there. 

Slowly but surely things are being completed and we are beginning to enjoy the outdoors. 

Everybody have a wonderful day. 

God bless.

Menu Monday

 Well Blogger is still working in the way it always did. I wonder if they were "fixing" something. I did not have to do a thing this time around.

Menus for this week are using a few things up from the fridge, freezer and pantry. Trying to keep things under control seems to be an ongoing process around here.


Butter Chicken, leftover rice and leftover salad.


Small pork sausage casserole to use up the sausages, some of the potatoes, and the carrots. 


I will warm up the brisket from Sunday and serve it with salad (probably just a tossed salad to use up the cherry tomatoes, half the cucumber, and the iceberg lettuce). 


Leftover Butter Chicken and I will need to make more rice. Served with the leftover tossed salad.


I am going to try air frying a couple of the Walleye fillets and serve them with roasted cauliflower and broccoli (got to get those items used up as well. I should be able to roast the veggies in the toaster oven.


The leftover sausage casserole.


Pork roast along with roasted potatoes, roasted carrots, and hopefully I can rid the fridge of the remaining salad items.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.

Frugal Friday


What the heck is with Blogger? I can now upload pictures the old way after three days of having to do some acrobatic exercises. Not complaining really, just wondering what is going on.

So it is Friday once again and time to list my frugal accomplishments, or at least those I can remember.

1.  Windows open at night to cool off the house rather than run the air conditioning.

2.  Doing most of the yard work ourselves. This year I have decided to gather perennial seeds or watch our garden Facebook page for free seeds or plants.

3.  Baked bread.

4.  Sewed three tops for a fraction of the cost of purchasing them even at the second hand stores. Man, they are expensive at our stores here in Estevan.

5.  Finally bought a blind for our bedroom. Did so online and got 50% off plus another 15% as it was my first order with this company. 

6.  Using appliances more to do my cooking. Keeps the heat down in the house and saves on electrical costs. 

So this is what I remember as being frugal with.

I did not get out to pick dandelions today as after weeding my garden areas my back was giving me a bit of grief. Believe me I rested between areas, but still bending over to pick the heads of dandelions was a bit beyond me today. Hopefully tomorrow.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thrifty Thursday


It has been a very strange day. Started off coolish and either cloudy or smoke once again. By the time I got out of the second store the sun was shining, the wind had died down and it was beginning to get pretty warm. 

After the third stop of the day it was very hot with the sun beating down so I came home and unloaded all the groceries, scanned them and had a bit of a rest. 

It was then back out to finish my errands and man was it warm. Harvey had closed all the windows and the air conditioner was still set pretty high so I lowered the temperature just a tad. Things are nice and cool in here now.

So what thrifty things have I been up to this week beyond sewing my own clothing (hopefully there will be a yard sale for fabric very soon running a bit low on certain things). 

I used the gift card I won to purchase some new runners/sneakers and some new summer sandals. I got both pair at a reduced price, plus it was Friends and Family week at our Mark's so got an extra 20% off my order...

Bought a beef brisket at $2.99 a pound and cut it in half (I managed to find a fairly small one). We will be smoking one this Sunday which should give us enough for two meals for each of us and some sandwiches for lunch.

Watering plants using the water in the rain barrel. Hopefully we get more rain soon (hearing rumbles and the sky is getting dark).

Saving twist ties, and elastics from food bags and containers. I think I just may start saving the clips on carrots and things of that nature once again. 

Planning on heading out at some point tomorrow and picking dandelions to make some more oil this year. Worked pretty good as a rub for low levels of pain. 

I had a decent sleep last night, buy getting out of bed was a dang pain. It hurt!!! My back still causes me a bit of grief, but the ribs seem to be much better.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Mid Week Once Again


Lots of clouds today, mostly passing to the north of us but I am thinking that it is so muggy out a storm is going to hit, at some point. I just hope no hail is involved. 

Made a stupid move this morning. I finished most of the household tasks and then decided that I should input some information on a few spread sheet. As I finished the computer work and stood up my back was a bit tight so I stretched. Must have stretched a bit wrong and I heard a crack and was in severe pain almost immediately. I thought I had dislocated a rib and that rib was pressing on my lungs. I could not breathe at all well. Almost went and woke up Harvey to take me to the ER, but gingerly walked about the house a bit and the pain dissipated somewhat.

However I have been taking things a bit easier, resting well between tasks (most of which had been done before my stupidity) and using a heating pad and ice pack regularly

Good thing I put off shopping for awhile (at least until tomorrow). Hopefully I can find a comfortable position to sleep in.

I did do some sewing today and finished another top. Mom would have called these last two tops "pop tops" as you just pop them on. She made many of these for my sister and I to wear in the summer. I am not as good as she was and need a pattern in order to make mine. 

Down to two more tops to sew and then I can start on Harvey's robe. Perhaps I will be lucky enough to actually finish this mass of sewing projects this month. 

Must slowly make supper. Will visit you all later.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Tuesday Tidbits


Hot and dry once again today. We started our air conditioner up this afternoon as the house was getting really warm. It is also fairly smoke filled, I don't know if it is from the Alberta fires or the fires in the northern part of our province. Sure hope it clears soon. 

At least with this kind of weather Harvey can BBQ and the house will stay cool. 

I have pretty much finished planting which is a good thing. I still have those pesky flowers to add to the perennial bed, but need to get it weeded first.

Finished sewing one more top today and have the machine set up for the next. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can finish my sewing and be able to at least start on Harvey's robe. Pictures coming next week I hope of all my creations, including my planting. 

Off to set the table and hopefully supper will be ready soon and that I actually have an appetite.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Menu Monday


Time for a week of menus, a few changes happened over the weekend (plus blogger changed how one gets a picture from their blog to repost.... just a bit confusing for sure). The changes were to use some things up.


Chef's salad to use up leftover salad, the last small bag of turkey in the freezer, some eggs, and the leftover canned ham.


Pork chops, tin foil potatoes and carrots. Would love to smoke the chops, but it all depends on whether we get rain or not.


Marinated chicken thighs, the leftover rice, and mixed veggies.


Stir fry pork, and rice.


Fish sticks, homemade tartar sauce, fries, and sliced cucumber.


Leftover stir fry from Thursday along with leftover rice.


Chicken breasts cut up and made into Butter Chicken. I think I will make noodles to go with this and some salad. 

I am off to bed. The heat and sun have gotten to me over the last couple of days planting. Now the smoke from the forest fires has arrived once more and my eyes are burning. Hope to visit you all tomorrow morning.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Frugal Friday


The sun is shining, I have gotten some planting completed and will be working on finishing things up tomorrow or Sunday if possible. So nice to get my hands dirty once again. I am not sure if I will plant the donkey out front, keeping my fingers crossed that I can. I am also keeping my fingers crossed that I do not have to purchase any more plants. 

Now what frugal things have I been up to this week.

1.  Hung all clothes on the line this week.

2.  Walking for free and frugal exercise.

3.  Reading free books on my ereader.

4.  Found thirty-five cents and put it in the change jars.

5.  Eating leftovers for our lunches, and packaging extra food for the freezer, to be eaten at a later date.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thrifty Thursday


It has been a regular week here. Most thrifty practices are the same week after week. This week though I just may have a couple of new things to share.

I have an old blanket that was starting to lose the satin edges, so I thought I would sew them back on. As I put it in the sewing room I thought to myself how it would make a lovely batting for a quilt or perhaps two. So that is what it will be used for. The blanket was getting a bit threadbare as well, and I had another blanket available to be used instead. 

I filled up various bottles of cleaners and dish soap from the larger bottles. Slowly those are getting used up and I will be trying to make my own cleaners. 

Baked bread twice this week. It costs less than half to make my own.

I did make an error in the Red Lentil Curry recipe. I think I forgot to say drain the lentils after they have cooked and before adding the rest of the ingredients. So sorry.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.

Wednesday, May 17, 2023


 I just can't believe how quickly the days are passing. Time is flying by and I wish it would slow down just a little bit. 

The smoke from the fires in Alberta has reached us. There is a haze over everything and we were told to take precautions when outside. 

So I promised to answer the questions today. First off is the recipe for Red Lentil Curry.

Red Lentil Curry

2 cups red lentils

1 large onion diced

1 tbsp. vegetable oil

2 tbsp. curry paste

1 tbsp curry powder

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp white sugar

1 tsp minced garlic (I usually sub in the equivalent in garlic powder)

1 tsp minced fresh ginger (once again I sub in the equivalent in ground)

14.25 oz. can of tomato puree (I use a small can of tomato paste and some of my frozen tomatoes...equals about a small can of tomatoes)

Wash the lentils in cold water until the water runs clear. Put lentils in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and place a cover on top, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, add water during cooking as needed to keep the lentils covered. Cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. 

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring the onions in hot oil until caramelized, about 20 minutes.

Mix all the spices together in a bowl, stir into onions. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1-2 mins.

Stir in the tomatoes and tomato paste, remove from heat and stir into lentils. 

This makes 8 main dish servings over rice. A good hearty meal with lots to freeze.

Now glace is a bit harder to explain. It is a German dish that my grandmother and mother made (Dad would request as it comes from his side of the family). Grandma raised chickens and so it was a very inexpensive way to feed 17 people (yep, my Dad came from a huge family of which there are only 5 left). It was reasonably inexpensive when Mom made it for us as well. 

I usually describe it as a cross between rather large noodles shaped like dumplings and very heavy dumplings. The dough is stiff and made using flour and eggs and is dropped into boiling water which has diced potatoes in it. When the "glace" rise to the top and boil for a bit they are ready. Then onions are fried in butter and poured over top of the glace. Sometimes fresh bread crumbs are fried in butter and used instead of the onions. Fried eggs are served to "dip" the glace in the yolks. Not for someone who worries about cholesterol. I really shouldn't eat them but once in awhile I enjoy a food that has been past down for many generations as I know my grandma got the idea from her mom, who probably got it from her mom and so on. 

I hope that answered all the questions.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Tuesday Tidbits


I have had a busy week so far. Not only trying to get my tasks completed, but helping Harvey with his. 

Now I dearly love my other half, but there are days I would like to bury him deep in the garden and throw balls at his head, these last two have been like that. 

It seems that whenever I am knee deep in my own tasks that is when Harvey decides he needs my help. Yesterday it was cleaning the entire deck, today it was painting the deck and mending his jeans (and darning his three socks). I shouldn't complain too much as he does so many little things for me, but it seems as if he needs my help when I am the busiest. At least the second paint coat on the deck he can do himself.

Tomorrow I will answer your questions and perhaps have a bit longer post. 

Oh, I do have one question for my readers.... My friend has bought three sundresses and while she says they fit perfectly, she was wearing one on Monday which I figure was too small really. Should I let her know that a slightly larger size would probably solve that problem and a couple of others? Just like wearing something too large can make one look bigger, wearing something too small causes the same problem as it shows every little fault. Or should I just say nothing at all? I do know she would be the first to tell me if something was wrong with what I was wearing (she already has, numerous times).

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Menu Monday


Whew, it's been warm here the last couple of days. Not complaining as I got to use the outdoor lines and managed to get all my clothing dry on the same day.


What I was going to make for Sunday dinner. Harvey decided I shouldn't cook and picked up take out. So it's Turkey Tetrazzini and the last of the asparagus.


Smoked sausage, green beans and a salad (to use up some bits and bobs from the crisper).


Leftover Turkey Tetrazzini and the remains of the salad.


Red Lentil chili.


Glace and fried eggs.


Soft Tacos


I think since Kris will be home we will change this to a Beef Roast with roasted potatoes and carrots. I will make a tossed salad.

I will be doing some switching around the following week to use up some leftovers, and as we don't have any lettuce for the tacos I will need to make a quick trip to purchase some.

We also are unable to use the BBQ or smoker right now as we have cleared off the deck, washed it and will be painting tomorrow hopefully.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Saturday Roundup


It has been a pretty quiet week as for the last three days we have been getting rain. It seems to have let up right now, and is supposed to get quite chilly so the plants (at least mine) will be coming into the house overnight. Hopefully all the plants that Harvey put in his veggie garden will be okay. Just too muddy to even try to cover them. 

The Oriole feeder is one that Harvey made, and I hope to convince him to make another to use next spring. I really am amazed that we actually managed to attract them this year. Perhaps there are more around than I ever imagined. 

Now what have I been up to this week. I have been knitting a blanket (which I now realize probably will not be finished this month), sewing and baking. 

Today I will share my baking with you. Sewing is being saved for another post once all is properly washed and ironed.

First off I made my version of a cherry turnover type thing.

I used up a container of cherry pie filling from the chest freezer and the remains of the phyllo pastry in the fridge freezer.

Next came pumpkin muffins to use up two one cup bags of pumpkin puree from the chest freezer.

Then came a rhubarb sponge pie to use up two bags of frozen rhubarb, and a frozen pie crust. 

Lastly I made some more muffins.

Zucchini muffins to once again use up a bag or two of frozen grated zucchini.

The muffins will make a lovely change from cereal, yogurt or toast for breakfasts. 

A loaf of bread was also made in my bread machine.

If this rain keeps up much longer I can see me doing a bit more baking as well as getting more sewing projects done. This time around I will be sewing some sleeveless tops. I believe there are 5 I need to get done before I start Harvey's spring/summer robe. 

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.

Frugal Friday


It has been a rainy day here with almost no let up. Even when I think it has stopped raining there turns out to be at least a mist. At least we haven't had full fledged downpours yet, just a nice soaking rain. 

So what frugal things have I been up to this week.

1.  Using up all that I can making meals and desserts. Leftovers are either eaten for lunches, fashioned into a new meal, or eaten as is.

2.  Watching free television on my mini computer. Kris got it fixed for me and it is so nice to get caught up on my watching.

3.  Sewed 4 pairs of shorts with fabric I either bought at garage sales or had remnants in my stash that were big enough to do so.

4.  Went walking for exercise outside every day but today. Today I walked inside.

5.  Found a dime in a parking lot, picked it up and put it in my dime jar.

I will end this with a picture of some visitors.

What a wonderful sight to see, I haven't seen Orioles in a very long time and to see a male and female at our first ever attempt to attract them is wonderful.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thrifty Thursday


A few thrifty things happening here this week, and some not so thrifty, that will become thrifty later on.

It still is not nice enough to hang things on the lines outside so I am continuing to use the lines downstairs.

Using up all leftovers in other meals and cleaning out the ready meals in the chest freezer, as well as any other items that need using. 

Baking bread, muffins, turnover type items, and pies to use up pumpkin, rhubarb, and cherry pie filling that was in the chest freezer. Things are going down and I should have it cleared out before this year's harvest starts.

Kris started lots of veggies for us that we will not have to purchase starter plants for. Of course there are a few that we either saved seeds or needed to purchase.

Harvey started some garlic downstairs, and I am hoping we get a good crop from this. I had to purchase the garlic but if this works we will be set.

Sewing replacement items for my spring/summer wardrobe (pictures later probably in a couple of weeks).

Bought Kris some double sheets/pillow cases for a great on sale price with a savings of around 75%.

Now the not so thrifty things.

Working on purchasing my herb starters and flowers for the decks and yard (priceless when you live in an area that is pretty much colourless for 6 months of the year). I hope to save some of the flowers by over wintering them and of course the herbs save me from having to purchase things like sage, thyme, oregano, parsley, chives, and even dill (planning to dry that this year as well). 

Seeds are costly but in the long run will save us lots of money not having to purchase veggies and freezing the extras.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Midweek Once Again


I spent a bit of time this morning at the dentist and then, because my mouth was frozen decided to stick close to home and get a few things done. 

I washed all the outside doors and cleaned the windows in them as well. That was my extra cleaning chore for today. 

I walked around the backyard/garden and saw something absolutely wonderful. After 9 years (could actually be 10) our pear tree is finally getting blossoms. I am so very excited!!! Hence the picture to start this post. 

I then came in and started sewing. I got one pair of shorts finished and started the second pair. I may even get those done tonight... Just depends on how I am feeling.

I have two cherry turnover type things in the oven (promise to take a photo when they are done and post tomorrow). Hopefully we like them as much as the apple ones I make. 

Tomorrow is kind of planned out as far as baking and project work. I hope to either finish the shorts and start the sundress, or if I finish the shorts tonight I will sew the sundress and start a sleeveless tunic top. Slowly but surely getting those sewing projects completed. I would like them all done by next week, but that could be wishful thinking on my part. Once all are done I will post pictures.

Baking wise will be a loaf of bread, some pumpkin muffins and perhaps some zucchini muffins. Really trying to get everything used up that I can before the next harvest. 

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


I was asked why I couldn't use my computerized machine while we had the storm happening yesterday.... It was more the lightening we were getting that made me leery of using the machine in case of a power surge. We get lots of those during electrical storms.

Tuesday Tidbits


While the day started off just sunny and bright, it ended up mid afternoon with some rain (almost an inch), small hail and cloudy skies. The sun is shining right now but rain is predicted for tonight, and tomorrow. Not going to complain as things really needed a good washing. It did, however prevent me from doing any sewing as my machine is computerized. I knit instead.

Harvey pretty much has the garden planted, just a few veggies left to plant, and I have bought a few of the plants for the pots. Hopefully we will be able to finish everything off outside by the Victoria Day long weekend. 

Maebeme asked if Kris will be having a garden outside and yes he will. I know he has already started a few veggies to go in and will also be planting onions, potatoes, tomatoes, peas, and corn. He gets a pretty good harvest, and hopefully since the garden now has a dose of peat moss and manure things will grow even better.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Menu Monday


We are home from our short visit with Kris, and before I post my menus I want to share a picture of how his hydroponic growing is going along. 

These peppers are from one of his plants (which by the way is huge).

These are Hot Portugal peppers, he does have some regular bell peppers growing as well as a very small watermelon started. Kris got his green thumb for veggies from his Dad.

Now on to the menu's for this week.


Spaghetti and meat sauce with raw veggies and dip.


Soup and sandwiches. I will pull out one of the cans of vegetable soup that needs using and make grilled cheese or tuna melts to go along with it. I am leaning towards tuna melts.


Baked spaghetti and salad. Perhaps if I remember to pick up French bread I will use half to make garlic bread.


The remains of the Baked spaghetti and salad.


A casserole that uses up a package of fake lobster or crab. Served with asparagus.


Leftovers from Friday.


Turkey Tetrazzini, and mixed veggies.

It is going to be chilly and rainy so hearty it goes once again.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thursday, May 4, 2023

Thrifty Thursday


Just a few new thrifty things this week.

Windows open the last two days as it has been very warm and I refuse to turn the air conditioning on this early in the season.

Sewing a few replacements for some of the clothing that I decluttered.

Used up lots from the fridge and freezer over the last few days.

Fixed a few seams, turned a collar and darned some socks (pretty much normal around here).

Harvey spread some new grass seed, and cleaned up the yard.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.

Midweek Once Again

 Oh my, we are half way through the first week of the month. Time is whizzing right by and we still haven't set up our cruise as of yet. 

This also makes it only May and June before our vehicle is paid off at 0% financing. This means more cash in hand and considering my dental costs this year (don't ask, things are getting very expensive what with a crown replacement, and a visit to and Endodontist to clean up an infection around a root). It is a good thing that what isn't covered can be claimed on the good old tax return for this year. 

Really not too much happening around here. Still doing a declutter, moving my spring/summer wardrobe into the drawers and closet. Do I need more clothing...probably nothing other than the shorts, tops and one sundress I have cut out to sew. 

Still working on clearing items out of my various stashes of fabric, and yarn. Things are actually getting used up and removed or donated to others that probably need them more than I do. 

Still there is lots to clear out and use up. More, actually than I ever dreamed possible. While I never really hoarded things like one sees on those old Hoarder shows, I did and do hoard things like leftover fabric, plastic containers, yarn, and in a big way clothing.... Must learn if things don't fit right or are too big, or too small get rid of them. 

Off to use up the last of the Turkey Shepherds Pie for supper tonight. Dessert is some pudding and Cool Whip I bought on sale.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. I will be visiting you all very soon.

God bless.

Tuesday Tidbits


Or should I say "The Great Mitten Knitting Caper".

It took me most of the month to get these mittens done and I would like to get another 25 done, but I am waiting a month to start. Too many other projects waiting, plus getting the things done outside that need to be done so we can enjoy our time outside. 

I promised you all a picture so here they all are in their knitted glory. 

Today I packaged them up in bags according to size, and yesterday I started a blanket for another of Kurt's friends. Continued knitting that today rather than start sewing. Mainly because I had to take our vehicle in for a service, changing over from the winter tires, and had no idea how long that would take. Boy has that gotten expensive. I think that next time the wipers need replacing we should do it ourselves. We could probably save over $50.00 that way. 

I have used quite a few partial and orphan skeins/balls of yarn and will hopefully use up more come the next 25 pairs of mittens. I really love that the teachers at Kurt's school feel comfortable to ask him if I would be willing to do this for them. Yes, I knit prayer shawls (the church has enough to last for quite awhile now) and knit for other members of the family, but this asking somehow warms my heart.  

Tomorrow I start sewing as well as washing out plant pots and maybe moving my clothing around (though I could conceivably start that tonight). Temperatures are staying well above freezing and I now feel comfortable getting those summer clothes out. 

Harvey rototilled part of the garden and plans on planting the potatoes tomorrow. He has already planted radish as they seem to grow better in cooler weather.

I downloaded some free books onto my Kobo ereader, and I think I may download a couple more today. 

Life is pretty good right now, Kurt's stalker/doxxer is in jail and still has to face a few more criminal charges in Ontario, so other than various Neo-Nazi's taking exception to what he blogs or tweets about, his life is pretty steady as well. Mind you the lies they like to spread get kind of on my nerves at times and I want to go all Mama Bear on them, but know that would just make matters very much worse. 

Off to get the table set and supper (that leftover kind of Tex Mex meal warmed up) started. Will be starting to visit you all after that until supper is ready.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.

Menu Monday


I am back, had a lovely time getting caught up on a few things, and getting the mittens totally finished (well the first 25 at any rate). I missed you all, but now the house is spring cleaned (except for the bathroom), I have gone through the freezers and am doing a use up what we have in the way of the bits and bobs, and planned a trip next weekend to visit with Kris. We will be taking "The Beast" (Harvey's truck) so as to bring up the big tiller and not smell up the car. I also plan on going and picking up the hardware for Kris to put up a clothesline. 

Meals this week are going to be using things up that need using up. Lots of that in this house.


Turkey Shepherds Pie.... I will be using up the mixed veggies, 4 potatoes, some frozen turkey, some frozen gravy, and the last of a package of grated cheese.


Kind of a Tex-Mex meal that I made up to use up some garlic coil sausage, a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes, a can of black beans, some grated cheese, about 1 cup of frozen corn, a package of my own frozen tomatoes and some macaroni. Gave it a good shake of Tabasco as well. Served this on Sunday and Harvey even had two helpings.


This will be leftovers from Monday.


Smoked sausage done on the BBQ I hope, along with a marinated salad and biscuits. 

Friday and Saturday we will be gone so will pick up a meal to share on Friday, and cook whatever Kris has that needs using on Saturday.


Fish sticks, homemade fries, and brown beans.

So that's the plan and hopefully we can stick to it.

I will be stopping in to visit you all at some point tonight.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. God bless.
