"Happy 1st Day of Summer" and I truly wish a wonderful summer for you! We are in phase 2 here and can be in small groups of friends and small groups of family ... if we wish. However, as much as I want this, being in the 'older' age bracket, I will still wait a while. No rush as long as I can talk online to family & friends and my niece and my son's wife continue to come over.
Mixed things going on since my last blog. I finally got out of my apt building on Wednesday, just to my heart doctor's to be hooked up with a heart monitor. It wasn't bad to wear and easy to sleep with it on because it was small but I was happy to be able to take it off this morning. Where the monitor was hooked up to three thingys on my chest, it got itchy under those patches. And oh my, I longed for a shower, which can't be when wearing this monitor. Happy Days ... I had the longest shower and washed my hair! I feel so clean now and it was the first time for me to wash my newer shorter hair cut. Straight and easy to care for but the back needs to be cut shorter still when my hairdresser comes this week.
My youngest great-granddaughter Violet will be 4 months old this coming week. I know, I know, where did that time go to? Photo taken this morning shows her happy personality and as I can see, she has her mom's beautiful colouring ... her mom is Spanish. Beautiful baby and so happy!

Sad news this week though, I guess we can't have all happy, right? My wee canary Sassy passed away. I knew she was going to as she wasn't acting her usual self. I only had her 5 years, got her from a breeder who had bred her ... a lot! But our 5 years together were happy ones and I cling to that memory.
I had to think long and hard to decide if I want to get another little canary and have decided on no. Although I love these birds and they can be beautiful singers and wonderful little companions, I've been finding that cleaning her cage is taking me longer and it is getting harder for me to do. If that sounds odd, I can't help it, I have to sit and do it and am forever getting up because I've forgotten something I need to clean it. With my wonky leg, this is getting harder on me.
Same as getting my groceries, my niece has been bringing them every two weeks and asked if I'd like to get out this week with her to go grocery shopping. Another thing I needed to think hard about and decided no, not yet. I'd LOVE to get out but I'm in the age bracket where we need to be extra careful because we seem to get this virus easier. And since I already have lung problems, it was a no brainer to say NO. I am too, too afraid of getting this virus! I will wait another two weeks till my next grocery run and see how things are then.
Well now, I've caught you up on what needs catching up on ... except my diet and exercising programs! I'd rather not even respond to that, lol, sorry but though I haven't been gaining any weight, I could have worked harder and lost some these past months! And I do tend to shy away from my leg exercises. I need a good
in the behinder,. You're welcome to leave one in the comments if you wish! LOL
Enjoy your Saturday, the first day of Summer. This day won't come again for another year!
