  1. Occasionally since the loss of our pup, I browse the local shelter to peek at the dogs and daydream. Mostly like the OP, it is filled with pits, pit mixes, hounds and hound mixes. Zero small dogs. Because of this thread, I decided to take a look and I'm shocked that they presently have mutts. Just your regular, run of the mill mutts and in various sizes too. I wish I could get DH to say yes to a dog because there were a couple I would love to see. ETA: I checked adoption prices. Dogs under 30 lbs or under 6 months are $125. Those over 30 lbs or over 6 months are $50.
  2. So far, so good even though 4 have tested positive at his office. Thanks for the hugs!
  3. As of last week, there were over 300 postal workers testing positive in Florida. Just a note to help cheer up your day.🤦‍♀️
  4. I've been buy quilting kits during this time too. Every Tuesday one of my local shops goes live on Facebook. They started it to keep themselves going during the shut down but I guess the success of it has kept them going despite opening back up. You call the shop ahead of time and they'll put it in a bin just outside the door. You just have to drive up, grab it and go. Pretty, pretty fabric. I'm a sucker every time. 😊
  5. I've been experiencing the same thing! I thought it might be age related (I'm 55) and it was scaring the pants off me that I was exhibiting these symptoms (I just had a hell of a time getting this word. Alexa had to help). Maybe it is the stress of Covid, stress of quarantine, stress of the panic buying, or all of it. I don't know but I don't like it.
  6. I follow shops on Etsy that carry products that I love and will probably shop at again but why would someone follow me? I'm just your average Joe consumer and even though I do shop Etsy I don't shop often. Maybe just a few times a year. I do, however, click favorite on things I like that might work for a project I'm working on. Could it be that? Someone following the things I favorite?
  7. Nice! I didn't even know that was a possibility. Definitely need to go check it out!
  8. I'm glad to see that people like Honey. Their ad kind of put me off. It made it feel like a scam to me. Now I think I'll give it a go.
  9. What a great thread! I can honestly say that kittens coming into our life at the beginning of this pandemic was the best cure to quarantine. Here is my favorite picture of Bear. She's tall and lanky now so the pictures aren't nearly as cute. ETA: Here is a more up to date picture of her as she is sprawling in my lap.
  10. Appliances and furniture. Two of my sons and their SOs moved into new homes last month. One son needs a washer and dryer and nobody has them in stock. They still hope to find something before having to purchase a set and wait for months. My other son and his wife needed furniture. The things they bought from a big box store won't arrive for at least a month (they were told it will likely be more) but, luckily, the things they bought from a mom and pop type of shop where furniture is built on demand has already been delivered. They said Ikea was out of stock on a lot of things.
  11. I can honestly say that the my granddaughter has been the best thing that ever happened to me. I hope you find the same joy, love and delight in yours as well. She's a beauty!
  12. I bought these Keen sandals from Amazon a few years ago for a vacation trip that would require a lot of walking. Loved them then, still love them now. They remain my go to sandal whenever I need to be on my feet for long lengths of time.
  13. Berninas are good machines. I'd give my eyeteeth to have a 40 year old one. The old machines can sew through anything and keep on ticking. If she wants to upgrade, I'd watch FB Marketplace. I've seen some great deals there on expensive machines. If she want's to quilt, look for one with a large throat to help wrangle the quilt through as she is quilting it. But if you want just a good, basic machine I've heard a lot of good things about the EverSewn Sparrow 30. I don't own one but it's probably the most recommended one I've seen on the quilting forums I visit. Supposedly, it has a lot of the same features as the more expensive machines but for less. Other good brands are Janome (I do have one of these as well as my Bernina and I love it) and Brother. ETA: Right now it's hard to get your hands on a lower range priced sewing machine. They sold like crazy as people started making their own masks and stores are having a difficult time getting them back in stock. I heard an employee at my quilt store tell a customer that she wouldn't be able to get her hands on anything under a $1000 until, at least, August.
  14. I have the similar version from Ikea but this one from Michaels is great with the hooks and pegboard. I would absolutely get it for my craft room.
  15. Now I need to investigate if there have been a recall of grapes. Grapes from both Costco and Publix made dh and I sick. Yuck! Good luck on growing your own salad. I've always wanted to do that by my green thumb is closer to black when it comes to edibles. 🤦‍♀️
