    hello!

    just a few of us hanging out here lately – i miss the others

    dee – you are making me want steak – and a private chef lol

    gaga – he is THRIVING! very happy with the change, and it is fun seeing him fulfilled and maturing and progressing ♥

    gramma – i did go back to bed this morning for a couple of hours after i sent ds on his way – i was so tired, and it felt great – usually once i’m up that’s it, but i have been dragging & needed the sleep ;-)

    Congratulations on the Goody Gumdrops Trophy! Woo Hoo! That is absolutely amazing! Good to know that it is not sendable, but disappointing just the same.

    I got 10 hours of sleep last night! I must of needed it!

    Hi moms! I feel all whacked out. Not sure it’s ‘me’ or the end of summer. Definitely something. 😊

    Gaga – The birthday celebration was wonderful. The girl from Spain made Tortilla de Patata (Egg & Potato omelet) with a strong garlic sauce that you put on top of it. The girls also made noodles that were made with truffles in them, plus they cooked them in truffle oil. I didn’t know that truffles were mushrooms and my dd said very pricey. I think 1 lb. of pasta cost $16, plus the oil was very expensive. But very delicious! I’m not sure how my dd’s friend from Spain liked the grilled steak because there was too much talking going on, plus we had surprise guests. She only ate half of her steak, so I hope that doesn’t mean that she didn’t like it. She is rather petite, so I’m hoping it was more that the quantity was too much. Thanks for asking! Oh, and the girls made red velvet cake from scratch and I know that she definitely liked that. We use shortening, and she isn’t sure she can buy that in Spain.

    Congrats on the trophy momz! I’ve been trying to get that one, but without much luck. But I like that game, so i’ll probably get it eventually.

    Gypsy passed early friday morning. I actually think my mom was more upset at first than I was. She had been hopeful and I think she thought she’d make it longer and possibly get better, but I knew she wouldn’t. I had already accepted that she wouldn’t make it, but I think my mom was shocked.
    We got her ashes back today along with an imprint of her pawprint. My mom picked out a beautiful box for her ashes since I was too upset to go yesterday. Now she’s in our curio cabinet alongside our old cat, Salena.
    I’m heartbroken, I had her for 2/3 of my life and now she’s gone. I can still remember when we got her.
    To make things worse it’ll probably be years before I can get another cat. My mom has said for years that we won’t be getting anymore pets and even if she changed her mind, it wouldn’t be a good idea. My parents are moving in 2 years and by then i’ll be in graduate school. I’ll probably be living on campus (I’ve been looking into on campus apartments) and you haven’t have pets there. I wouldn’t want to have a pet with so much uncertainty about my future living situation.

    Good Morning !
    Chococat….So sorry about your beloved cat Gypsy…Take comfort in knowing that she is at the Rainbow Bridge with Selena.. playing and no longer suffering..
    You never know what the future holds…. a new kitty may just walk into your life when you least expect it…Thinking of you during this difficult time.

    OMG, Chococat, your Gypsy reminds me of my Gypsy! She was such a lovely cat, too. I am sorry for your loss and I understand the hesitancy in getting a new one. Especially if you are looking at going to move to campus.

    Congratulations, all on your Goody Gumdrops trophies. I am a long way away from one of those anytime soon.

    Liking what I see in this years collection event, but just looked back at the 2016 collection and that far exceeds and surpasses this in quality. I missed that event. I missed very one for 2016 and when I come back, it seems they have scaled back their productivity, or is it just a ‘grass is greener’ thing?

    Thank you everyone.

    I like the acorn window thing, but don’t like that it’s estore. I feel like it should’ve been the grand prize for collecting the acorns.
    I saw something on webkinz newz about fall fest coming up, have the prizes for that been shown yet? I don’t recall seeing anything about them.

    Gagagee – We have a poem about the rainbow bridge in the curio cabinet with them. Hopefully Gypsy and Salena can finally get along now. Salena was very territorial, so when we brought a kitten (Gypsy) into /her/ house, she wasn’t happy. It wasn’t until we got the dog that they finally started to get along because they had a common enemy (the dog). Gypsy had a tough time when Salena passed a few years ago, she started overgrooming herself which led her having patches of fur missing. The vet said it was her way of grieving and the poor thing had to wear the cone of shame for a while.

    awwww choco – i am so sorry for your loss – gypsy was a beautiful lady!

    and i totally agree that the window should have been the grand prize!!!

    muffin – thanks for the poster code – i had not gotten around to doing that one yet!

    dixiecup – i am hoping that they are so focused on getting WW moved into an app format that is “flash” free, then maybe we will get more new & interesting things??? let us know if you are missing pieces from that year, though – list out your wishes, and we will check for extras to share with you :)

    moms

    bananas and straw yogurt and milk in blender………..add FRUITY PEBBLES
    and make breakfast popsicles out of it by pouring into popsicle mold

    needless to say i thought of you………..i am sure you can find the recipe

    our company is enroute to airport………..

    CHOCO
    you never said she was a siamese! was she all yelly?
    i had one that i found by a dumpster and we named her bandit…..did yours have an attitude like she was better than EVERYONE?

    she looks so lovely in the pics………..lucky you to have known her

  21. 21 Chococat663 said,

    August 26, 2018 @ 7:33 pm

    Dee – she was very talkative, you could have ‘conversations’ with her. And she was quite the princess. She’d set at the top of the stairs looking over her kingdom and judging everyone, specifically the dog. Salena was also a siamese, but she was a bit more humble.

    August 26, 2018 @ 7:47 pm

    found them dee:

    1 1/2 cups fat-free Greek yogurt
    3/4 cup 1% milk
    1 cup Fruity Pebbles, divided

    Instructions

    Put yogurt and milk in a blender and blend until combined.
    Stir 3/4 cup Fruity Pebbles into the yogurt mixture.

    Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Fruity Pebbles into the bottoms of popsicle molds.
    Pour or spoon the yogurt/milk mixture into the molds. Hit molds on the counter a few times to push the yogurt mixture into the mold and remove air bubbles.
    Insert popsicle sticks.
    Freeze popsicles for at least 6 hours or overnight.
    To remove popsicles from molds, run molds under warm water for about 15 seconds and gently jiggle popsicles from molds.

    They look delicious! :D

    So sorry about Gypsy, Chococat! :( Thanks for sharing the pics of her. She was beautiful! I know she will be missed!

    The grand prize for acorn collection isn’t so grand, although I like it as a prize. I do wish the window was the grand prize, too.

    choco – we have a page over towards the top on the right that will tell you how to post your trading list in detail :) (i double checked, you do have author privileges still, so you should be good to create your list)

    Good Morning All !
    In agreement with everyone that the fall window should have been the grand prize and not an e store item…
    Looking forward to upcoming September events.. Love the fall leaves flying in WW ! I really hope they come up with some new prizes this year !
    New plushy is another one from the Pebble Collection however will not be available until Oct 1st due some manufacturing issues…
    Chococat.. Gypsy was a beautiful cat.. We had a Siamese cat growing up.. she had crook at the end of her tail which my Mom always told us that Cleopatra used to put her jewelry on her cat’s tail and tie a knot .. and so the crook was common in Siamese cats… ???? not sure where she came up with that piece of information…
    dee.. Hope you had a nice visit with your guests… Hopefully things will be back to normal in your household ..
    moms.. do you happen to know if this week is maintenance week in WW ?
    I can’t to keep that straight !
    66 Muffin.. thanks for posting the code for Solar System Poster..
    Hope you all have a nice day !
    Can’t believe next week will be September !
    Where did this summer go ??????

    gaga – i agree about september! i asked dh something about this weekend, and when he reminded me it is Labor Day, i say “NO WAY!?!”

  29. 29 Queen of Sheba said,

    August 28, 2018 @ 12:20 am

    Yep, maintenance is on Wednesday!

    I’m especially busy as I prepare for one more vacation (coming up) for a week and when I get back….boom! I have to be ready to teach six classes! Where did the summer go?

    Finished all the challenges that I had decided to do (skipping two free accounts, that I could adopt a pet on, but too busy to come up with names, etc. Plus, then I would be obsessed to play catch-up on Wacky Challenge and more. So I’m letting those accounts slide).

    Today was my oldest dd’s birthday. She lives about three hours away, but we had nice phone conversation! Tomorrow, I’m going to visit a friend that just had a baby. She missed my dd’s birthday by one day (born on Sunday).

    My youngest dd’s friend from Spain left today. We truly enjoyed having her in our home. She fit right in to our family!

    Oh…back to Webkinz….I finally got a ModKinzVisionTV as a PAN prize. I don’t know if that is a new one or not, but I didn’t have it. I was able to get the elusive tiles on my account & dd’s account!

    Good Morning !
    Month of August winding down…Looking forward to upcoming events in September WW… If anyone is interested e store calendar has September items being released throughout the month.. Mystery bags coming Sept 3 although no pictures posted yet..
    Queen of Sheeba .. have a great vacation !
    Good morning gramma ! Hope your weather has cooled off a bit… CLE is going through a heat wave right now… but am not complaining .. I think of the alternative and what kind of weather is right around the corner…
    Hope you all are well and have a good day !
    moms… glad your ds is thriving at his new school !! I am sure that is comforting to you !

    dee – have you recovered?!

    hey gramma!
