"I THINK positive,.
Therefore I SPEAK positive;
Therefore I DO positive."

"Tomorrow" starts today!!

2020 - the year of the Coronavirus.
March 9 - I self-isolated.

April 25 - so it's been over a month and no end in sight. My niece picks up groceries for me every two weeks and brings them here. She's been the only person in my apt since March. My children stay away, afraid they may bring the virus to me. To be continued ...

May 16 - having a bad bout of Bronchitis, brought on by fragrances in my apt. I should not have any fragrance in here at all because it triggers the Bronchitis! All my Scentsy stuff plus candles are now packed up and my daughter Sue will pick them up tomorrow. What a sight my hair is, so long and unruly! When I can get it cut again, I'm going for the Gamin pixie style, cut right off!

July 15 - I've had a bad cough for several months, today I had extensive tests done at the hospital and they could not see the cause of it. I also had the test done for the Coronavirus and am okay in that dept, thank goodness. I go to my own doctor on the 28th and he'll figure out what's behind this cough.

July 24 - saw my own doctor and he told me I have COPD. That took the wind out of my sales for a while but then I'm okay with it now. It is what it is. I'm on a new puffer to take for life plus use my other puffer as well.

Aug 4 - The very first time I've gone grocery shopping since March 9th and wow, how different it is now. Store was fairly empty so we did well on my first time out, even went to the license bureau to have my OHIP and handicap sign for vehicle renewed. Lovely day!

Aug 5 - My 85th birthday and my niece Mame took me to the Red Lobster where I had my favourite Escargots for lunch! What a nice way to celebrate!

Sept 8 - Family doctor is sending me to a lung specialist, I have an appt to see him next month. My cough just won't go away and it is a bad one, have had it since February! Something is going on with my lungs, let's hope it isn't serious.

    It's freeky Friday, and the day before Halloween! Welcome to my Pumpkin Patch. Take a load off and come sit for a spell.
    I've been busy brewing up these little frog kisses of humor for you. I'll be trying to scare up some good ol' fashioned Halloween fun and giggles for you. Some of these might seem a little batty, but make no bones about it - I'm sure one will scare a good laugh out of you. And now, my little pretties, let the spellbinding undertaking begin . . .

    Why do skeletons have such low esteem?
    They have no body to love.

    Why don't mummies take a vacation when Halloween is over?
    They're afraid they'll unwind.

    What's it like to be kissed by a vampire?
    It's a real pain in the neck!

    What streets do ghosts like to haunt best?
    Dead ends.

    What's a ghost's least favorite room in a house?
    The living room.

    What food do witches like to eat at the beach?
    Sandwiches

    How do you make a skeleton laugh?
    You tickle his funny bone.

    Why are ghosts such terrible liars?
    You can see right through them.

    What food do Italians like to eat on Halloween?
    Fettucini afraid-o.

    Knock, knock. . .
    Who's there?
    Orange. . .
    Orange who?
    Orange you glad these Halloween giggles are finally over?!

    Tip of the day:
    1. Give out apples for Halloween.
    2. Wait for teenagers to T.P. your house.
    3. Collect T.P. from trees and shrubs.
    4. Now you won't have to buy T.P. for the next 6 months!

    I hope you had a howlin' good time, and wish you a very Happy Howl-oween, along with a spooktacular weekend!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog.
    Reconnecting with Spark has made a positive difference in this very challenging year.
    I know it has prevented me from diving into the container of ice cream.
    In fact, it has prevented me from even buying it.
