    To each his own.
    Not an only child but may as well have been as brother was very ill with schizophrenia, I also don't live totally alone as I have my son with me, my best friend lives miles away from me and I am an orphan with no contact with any of my extended family. I'm extremely independent and when something goes wrong I crawl into a cave until I feel like coming out. My friend isn't afraid of me and will tell me to smarten the hell up and talk some things out but she's as bad as me, she is not an only child and has lots of family support but rarely asks for it. She knows when to back off and when to push as I do with her and her family will contact me if they are concerned about her.

    I don't consider this different either and definitely to each their own as long as they make it clear.

            Aw hell naw! That's too cold for me. I like to look at snow, not live with it. I visit you in spirit at this time. Just call me a spoiled Californian. *g*

            Hope you are enjoying the nice day Kim and that the rain lets up for a bit.

            • And it's still wet and windy here in welsh wales , the trees are looking beautiful in their autumn colours, just gorgeous. Autumn is my second favourite season, after spring

              • Hey Kim, are you expecting snow this weekend? I might get snow mixed with rain on Friday and more snow on Saturday. Probably won't stick, but I'm looking forward to it. My yard guys came today and did leaves. They mulched a lot of them, but I have a pile out next to street waiting for city leaf pick up. My luck a wind will come and blow them back into my front yard.

                  YES... But it will be a change from this wet leaf covered gloom for the past several days.
                  I just wish I could have gotten all the leaves up!

                  • DH has not given up on fall tasks, a couple of days ago he was blowing leaves, today he used the leaf blower to clear the front deck, then the sidewalk! That's the only benefit of the temps dropping through the floor, fluffy snow. Wind chills tomorrow night -18*f or -28*c. In either scale, dammed cold.

                    Have you tried the Avocado yet Kim? I must say we have been blessed with family and friends dropping off food for us while DH has been in charge of cooking...I will be for ever grateful.

                      Pffff...you won't catch me in Cold Lake, Alberta! It was 14.7C where I live and I'm relocating to the maritimes where it was 16C ! It still gets pretty cold in the dead of winter where I live but much milder than Cold Lake or where KBC lives!

                      • I'm waiting for avocado news! I actually hated them as a child/teen but love them now, so you never know. If you find your dip idea too in-your-face, you might want to try using it as a spread in your burrito or taco or whatever, so it mixes with the other flavors and just leaves you with a creamy feeling.

                          Ehh.. I am not thrilled, or repulsed. I ate part of one in a salad last night, I personally do not care for the texture. LOL
                          I mean it's not liver or Lima beans, but It can be missed, super food or not! LOL

                            Thursday evening check in. Weather continues to be shit.. No sign of sun again all day.
                            Was busy all morning, I am working for the guy ex sold the business to. So I had 10 postings to do, and it kept me on the go for 3 hours. today. Still sun would have been nice.
                            I swear has the local media even lost their mind? What the heck, This is Michigan, they were saying, Winter weather advisory for tomorrow, possible 1 to 2 inches! WTF? That is not even a dusting to Michigan, I mean anywhere, unless you are in the south. Does everything have to be sensational? It is 40 degrees, so even if it does snow, it will melt.
                            I wanted so bad to call up the radio station and ask what state they are from!
                            And I guess Michigan has now legalized recreational Marijuana. Wow, did not see that coming.
                            I am fine with it, I am not a smoker, but I could be persuaded now and again for medicinal purposes!
                            What do you guys think of that?? Talk about something other than food! LOL

                            • Well...if you live in a place where marijuana is legal, and you partake...it might give you the munchies, and then we're back to the food posts!

                              Weather out here on the ranch, lovely sunny 45 or 50 degree days but Super Cold at night. 10 degrees here at the house last night, 5 degrees down where the cows are. Yes, F. Brrrrr!

                                Don't lie. It's just as bad. LOL

                                And for even more laughs: My little Siamese girl is playing with her little plastic milk carton top. She brings it to me and I throw it for her. Every time she brings it back it's curled around her nose, so she has this strange Siamese-Pig Nose face. With super crossedy eyes. And oh boy is Baler jealous! He's tried smacking her and knocking her down because she's playing and he is isn't. Wish I had a camera.

                                • Regarding legalization of marijuana: I lived in Colorado when it became legal there. I tried it again and realized I just didn't like it any more. But: I think it should be legal everywhere. I think excess alcohol consumption is much more harmful.

                                  Be careful with edibles. The THC percentage can vary widely. Also, because they take so long to take effect, people sometimes think it's not doing anything and eat some more, to their regret. Even just eating the recommended amount can give you far more THC than you bargained for, due to the inconsistency of the products.

                                  • Cannabis is now, thankfully, legal in Canada, at least it makes it easier to get my CBD oil. I was kind of shocked to hear that you can't buy edibles at the dispensary shops. I managed to quit a 35 year, pack a day habit, can't risk any kind of smoking.

                                      Edibles??? Ick!!! No But I might look into the oil, for it's cancer fighting properties, so it is said.
                                      I never liked the feeling one gets from Pot. Always feel like I am talking nonsense. LO?L

                                      • It's snowing. We are only getting a dusting, and our weathermen aren't going crazy with warnings at least, just the warnings about slick roads, etc.. I'm such a winter person, I was excited to wake up and see the little snow we have. I guess I'm the only one who likes the overcast days. They energize me, I hide from the sun.

                                          Not snowing here yet. But I never care one way or another. It is too warm, almost 40 right now, it won't stick.
