I was given a knitting pattern for a lace shawl that is based on the arches of Alhambra. After seeing this picture, I'd say that the shawl is dot on as there is a picture of the finished shawl. I will do this shawl but want to find the perfect yarn for it. Have an idea too.

Have a wonderful week, all of you!

Taffi, how did the shawl turn out? I use to wear shawls a lot, especially with long skirts, loved them.

I never did find the right yarn and then just got into other things. I'll have to track it down. Thanks for the reminder.

Lol you're welcome! I'm sure we're related somehow, I get side tracked the same way!

My husband and I have different preferences on coffee as well. Starbucks coffee is much stronger than instant. My husband didn't like the Starbucks he received - he claimed there were coffee grounds in it. Went back and they made another cup free of charge. I've been given discounts and coupons from Starbucks. Retiring - many people here retire. Some are retired and some that are retired volunteer. Yep try and keep busy.

God bless you all this lovely Sunday. My husband just told me he was a fool to want to spend time with me because I ventured the opinion that I thought perked coffee left for an hour and a half would still taste better than fresh instant. (I don't drink the coffee--he does. But it's Starbucks and the instant is Nescafe so what would you think? ) Anyway, his ongoing comments that seem to tell me I ruin his life every time I open my mouth are getting to me after all these years. No wonder he doesn't want to retire. He told me as much.

Hang in there pixipixil. Don't lose your self worth. Know that you & your opinions are worth just as much as the next person.

Hang in there pixi! I, too, listen to comments like that and I just laugh them off. Perked coffee is better than any type of instant and I have been drinking coffee for over 50 years! Wait until he retires; then you'll really hear comments!

I drink coffee but don't like Starbucks or instant. Where does that put me? You have a right to your opinions and so does he. (My friends think I am sometimes too diplomatic and ever the mediator.)

I don't know anything about coffee I have never drunk it or made a good cup of it so I have been told and I don't care.I am retired and live in a retirement community and do know this, if you have a negative attitude before retiring it will stay with you afterward and those are miserable people to be around. So let him keep working some people are happier that way and maybe you can be too.always remember what globug said.

I feel for you. Please find a competent therapist, minister, etc. to help you deal with his attitude. Just because he is a sad, crabby bully doesn't mean you have to live on his terms.

We have been retired for 20 years and believe me ir doesn't get any better. Just stay active.

We've solved that problem, he stays downstairs most of the time with the TV & I stay upstairs with my computer. He has been disabled for a number of years, & I retired 8 years ago. Hang in there! (we both drink coffee & think Folgers is the best-but I also like Newman's Specail Blend Decafe) We use a Bunn & a Kurig, but don't use the warming tray on the one - we just let it cool & use the microwave to warm it. Mine says I don't listen to him, and guess what I don't. Be your own self.

Thank you so much for all your advice and good wishes. it really perks me up to know it isn't just me.
globug you have put your finger on the problem. I do keep telling myself "that's his problem" but I do love him so it does sometimes get thru to me. F22028 you have the right idea. I do try not to be still for long. iawoman1 I have been thinking about doing that.
Dinta, I will work to do as you do. My uncle says the best revenge is live well. I try. tutudiane, good luck in your retirement community. I hope you can insulate yourself from the grinches. Nlb you are an original. That's where that puts you. It's a hard road when volume is what sells. I know because I walk it.

And that's why, after 25 years of marriage, I am single and NO WAY would I ever get married again. No one should have to listen to being put down time after time. I don't understand why women put up with it....is it so ingrained into us that we are their servants, their property? Those who stay in those relationships have my sympathy. Please take care of yourselves- you are important!

Sounds like your husband is an old poop. Perhaps it's better for YOU that he doesn't retire.

Personally, I think Starbucks and instant Nescafe are yucky. I love coffee with a bit of sugar, but we don't drink our coffee strong.

Trynfindit--it probably is. At least we have plenty of money this way and I can putter in the yard w/o being on a schedule until he gets home. He used to be different but changed after we adopted our boy.

Hi Lydia: I think I'll be the one to die first but if I'm not I may take your path and go it alone.

After 4 marriages and divorces, I'm going it alone too. I do have a caregiver to do the things I can't but in July, after 3 years of renting a room from me, he finally was able to get his own place so I really am going it alone again. I really like it when know I don't have to explain my decisions to anyone. Being my ex-husband, my caregiver felt he still had the right to know. Yay! It's just me and my dog again!

Isn't it fantastic to not be beholding to anyone at home?! I happen to have a home with my oldest daughter and we share custody of my 2 grandsons (her nephews) so I'm not exactly "going it alone"...we are all respectful of each other as far as letting each other know plans, etc. and fortunately, we work very well together. But, as for a MAN who is not actually part of my family...never again! I LOVE my life!!! Pixipixil....none of us knows G-d's plan so maybe you will have a few years to yourself....if that's what you would enjoy! My mom is almost 96 and has been alone for 12 years (except my brother had to move in after a "friend" almost killed her by letting a car roll back on her and broke almost the whole left side of her body when she was 90! ) Being in control of your own life is a very freeing experience!

Pixipixil, I'm sorry to hear of this. You don't deserve such a harsh reaction from him over something so minor. My heart goes out to you and I hope you find a solution to your situation which will bring you more peace and joy in your life. Life is too short to be unhappy. Best wishes and hugs!

HI lydis:
As they say with friends like that who needs enemies. I hope your mom has recovered sufficiently to get around again. No one on either side of my family made it to 96. My aunt who just died did make 95 tho.

Thanks so much MtnMomma. Men are odd that way. I had a priest I worked for go into a 10 minute tirade because I said the organist told me a hymn they picked wasn't written in stone so if he (the priest) wanted me to do another I would.

Pixipixil, that's sad. No matter what their relation or position, there's no excuse for verbal abuse. Verbal abuse can leave scars as well...Hang in there, pixi, and know that you are valued.
nlbuchanan
Oct 26, 2013
Verbal abuse can leave scars as well. I can attest to how true that is. I believe verbal abuse leaves scars that can hurt, not only you, but ongoing generations as bad as ongoing physical abuse does. I don't know how many generations back it goes but I know my grandfather verbally abused my mother and my mother verbally abused her children, and still does. I made up my mind I would not verbally abuse my children but their father, who was verbally abused by his father, abused our children. "And the beat goes on...."

Thank you. For me it's a make up and move on method of coping. Just had another bad morning but we made up b4 the day was over. Funny that this post should have come up tonight because of you.

Enjoyed this one but got to admit I did it in the circles, was just going to give a comment and low and behold it vanished, but I did enjoyed the circles better more of a challenge.

I did the circles too, but you did better than I. it was fun though.

You want to try the circle, a touch harder than any I have done, and the different shapes do take some getting use to, but nice to have another challenge, and this is what the site is all about and the feed back you get from other puzzles is terrific and a pleasant people you could not find better.
Have a super day. God bless you all.

Hi folks, must be doing something right lol - the refrigerator finally gave up the ghost and is only a year old, just outside of the warranty period, the door closer on the garage blew and the security light is not functioning all because a palm frond fell across the power lines and blew the box controlling our small street of four houses. New door closer 425.00, not sure how much the security light is and hopefully the fridge is covered by our insurance, but there is a 500.00 excess. Oh well, my Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills, will just have to borrow the money from Him ;)

GOD BLESS ALL
PRAY FOR ALL

Hi Aussie. I'm surprised the insurance doesn't cover both. We have a $500 deductible also. I will pray for things to turn out. And you are right--since everything is from the Lord He will lend you what you need.

Howdy Aussie -- the first thing I would do would be to contact my insurance company Monday morning and say, "I want to present a claim for damages for which I believe the electric company is responsible." I would explain about the palm fronds and the box, and say that the electric company should have been sure the palm fronds were trimmed back to protect their equipment from such an accident. I'd say I believe they were negligent when they didn't protect their equipment from such an obvious threat. Then I'd say, "I'm presenting a claim for the things that were damaged, including the fridge (power surges can do extensive damage to all things electrical), and I anticipate you will subrogate the electric company for reimbursement of the insurance company's costs to fulfill my claim plus my excess" (deductible in the U.S.). That's what I'd do, anyway. Think it's worth a try? Good luck.

Hi aussie, the convent was under attack last week, we had no hot water...thank God we have to boilers so we could keep the residents warm if not clean!! the telephones all went down, the builders hit a cable that set the fire alarms off and we were unable to shut it off for 2hours a lot to be thankful for that most of the residents are deaf, the inspector turned up but we passed muster and kept our 5 stars. Life was not to bad until today when had a rainstorm and it came in every where it could find the smallest hole, and Job thought he had it bad. hope everything works out well for you as I am sure that it will for us when the workmen arrive in the morning.

Thank you trynfindit lol. It is actually a Scripture verse "Psalm 50:10 for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills."

Oh my, you have not had a good time. And to all who have shown an interest in my dilemma, the insurance company said because of the type of outage, we are not covered. Apparently there are only 10 reasons for replacement of appliances and a fallen frond on a powerline is not one of them. Guess who will not carry our insurance next year???? We did find out that the fridge which is a year old has a two year warranty, so we are going to try that avenue. And Luvswestern, not sure that would work in this country, but will look into it.

Oct 21, 2013
It's worth trying, Aussie. As to being dropped by the insurance company, it sounds like they weren't worth having. I hope you can find a better one.
Wow Barbaranne--2 hours of a fire alarm blasting would have made me go deaf if I hadn't been. Hope you can plug all the leaks.

Aussie, I'd still say that damage caused by the negligence of others to the contents of your home is a covered exposure, especially under the "contents" portion of either a fire policy or a homeowner's policy.

You probably spoke to an agent's secretary who know next to nothing about claims adjusting. Even some agent's don't think about liability and claims with regard to liability of the other party -- only on their own exposure (by insuring negligent people to drive, etc.)

Ask your agent (not his or her secretary) to call the claims department of the company your are insured with and check it out. He should specifically say that the electric company was negligent (the crux of all insurance) in failing to maintain the condition of the trees near that electrical box. It was therefore due to their negligence in not maintaining the trees -- or insisting the homeowner upon who's property the tree was located maintain it -- that a palm frond from that tree broke their box (or whatever), causing power surges to damage electrical equipment in your home.

Get together with your neighbors and see if they had losses, too. We had a similar problem here in the U.S. (California). Our insurance company paid for all replacement items (fridge, computers, television, and a few smaller things). They then sent a letter of demand for damages (subrogation) to the electric company. They even collected our deductible (excess? ) and reimbursed it to us.
