Hurts so good...

Sunday, March 29, 2020

Good morning friends.. Yesterday was a rainy crappy day.. so stuck inside all day.. except for a run to the bank to deposit my husband's last pay check and to the post office to drop off my daily card.. Being confined to one's home and it not being a great idea to cook for others a daily card is pretty much what is keeping my ARK afloat these days.. but I do love it as it gives me something joyful to focus on every single day ..

I am sore this morning, and boy does it feel good. #cko did a virtual class yesterday and then I ran a mile afterwards.. dripping with sweat, made a tasty breakfast of 647 bread, tomato, avocado and an over easy egg with cilantro, chili lime seasoning and a dash of salt and I felt "normal" at least for a little while.. I am savoring every ache and ounce of soreness that I feel..John Cougar was singing about love, but hurts so good applies to exercise too! I am super excited that at 10am today it will be tullytime.. he's leading this morning's virtual class.

I panicked the other day when I realized Hallmark channel disappeared with cable.. now I guess I could purchase it, but the point of this was to reduce costs and adding misc channels is counterproductive, so I was extremely happy when I stumbled upon the netflix equivalents. or was it prime video.. not sure but whatever, they are there, they do exist and when I need something sappy, everybody ends up happy, feel good fare.. it is right at my finger tips.

Another poor weather day here on tap again, I am hoping maybe I can squeeze in a walk at some point, grab my camera and capture something worthwhile.. that is the other frustrating thing. The software I have is not compatible with the laptops that function.. My old one is usable but gets bogged down and doesn't respond to certain things. With hubby out of work and me on reduced pay, it wouldn't be a good idea to waste money on that right now.. but my son has a mac with software he said I can use so I am going to put some pictures on a flash drive and see if I can play around with that.

And tomorrow when I roll out of bed and log onto my computer for 8 hours the sun is supposed to shine again. I am not complaining, I am thankful to still have a job, but I would be lying to you if I said I was unaffected by the fact that when there is the possibility that I could wander outside and find my mind which I am slowly losing, I instead will be sitting at a desk, for hours staring at a computer, hoping to have interaction with a client, trying to learn about as many customers as possible to be able to interact and support them if they do happen to be around, most of whom have gone dark because they have been so greatly impacted by this situation as well.

For dinner last night I made a 96% lean burger with Jarlsberg light swiss cheese, caramelized onions, seared asparagus with garlic and balsamic vinegar and baked garlic, ranch, parmesan potatoes and paired it with an apple cinnamon hard cider.. it took the edge off and I settled into my Saturday night of watching happy chick flicks..

Gonna run now.. time to start my day.. lest I lay here all morning wallowing until 10am.. Our priest started doing the daily mass on youtube, at 8am I believe, so I am going to look for that this morning or perhaps a different one.. I am in need of the spoken word right now.. ..

Sending love and light like a boomerang in the hopes that it comes back my way too.. Have a blessed day!

    Yup, one of the blessings that so many seem not to have recognized is....

    our access to the world via our internet connections...
    imagine this pandemic in the 1950's ...
    and being asked to self-isolate.
    WoW. okay, even in the 1980's
    things would not have been too greatly improved

    We are lucky in some respects.

    ((((HUGS)))) Rainy/thunderstormy here, too.

    These are just extraordinary times, and it's good to lean on Him to get through.

    Hugs, stay safe, stay well.

    Your sun is coming! It's in my east facing windows!

    What a wonderful day you had Saturday. Getting our sweat on is VITAL for us!!!

    I'll be listening to several podcasts and watch our church via live streaming. I'll also check out a WWVirtual meeting.

    LOVE your ARK-- we are in a time of great adjustments. Plan B is a blessing to all who receive those cards... You are loving God, loving people....
