Most days it is sunny and around 50...coolish but I’ll take it.
We have had some near freezing temps at night but no killing frosts so the gardens are happy....really need some nice warm days to crank things up, though.
We did go in the hot tub one chilly windy night With just a bit of drizzle, but then it turned into a snow squall while we were out there...brrrr!
What a comical sight it must have been to see two naked old people hurrying (carefully) across the snowy deck to the back door.
So we have ‘doubled our bubble’ and merged our family of two with my son’s family of five with scrupulous hygiene all around.
The kids were getting almost depressed with the nearly two months of stay at home orders...I’m sure our mental health was affected as well...plus, Pat and Jean need some relief from the 24/7 of working from home, teaching the kids, running a household, and living with cancer.
It has been wonderful.
Here they are having a self-directed science lesson..capturing, examining and categorizing salamanders.
And the girls painted and decorated shells here to give mommy.
We all intend to continue staying at home for the foreseeable future despite what anyone else does. I won’t even let my DD into the house as she is still working and I’m not sure that she or her bf follow all the rules. We do have outside visits a few times a week.
She brought me this huge black velvet pillow for Mother’s Day...she was SO excited to give it to me.
I am NOT happy about a few new physical issues I am having that are spoiling my fun...the worst being the feeling of that dreaded plantar fasciitis coming back...a year later!
Remember last year it took me a year to get rid of it with three rounds of PT, doing all those exercises day after day, wearing the boot to bed every night, and some expensive new shoes.
I am resuming all that but feel I should not be walking right now....I do not own a bike and the gyms and the pools are still closed so I am limited to my yoga mat and my kettlebell and a few weights I own. Trying so hard to do something besides stretching every day.
So, basically, we are snug as two bugs in a rug...he plays outside and I play inside and we are getting along fabulously as we are reminded every day now how we like each other so much.
Looking down the barrel at 52 years together this summer....lol!
Ok...just spent ten minutes trying to fix those photos (which I have now added to my photos section) but just kept turning them one way and then the other!
