My day today consisted of getting dressed and keeping warm! Wow has our weather changed quickly but I know we're going to get more hot days before Autumn sets right in. I'm not complaining, I love the coolness of Autumn but when my apartment gets too cool and our building's heat hasn't been turned on yet ... how do you keep your nose and hands warm??

No sleep in my bed last night, so I sat in my recliner in living room and dozed off and on. I've felt okay today but realize that we need good sleep as well as healthy food and exercises. Speaking of which ... this month's goal is for me to do my leg exercises at least 5 days a week and boy can I get lax with that! I thought if I wrote that here it would help me see how foolish it is not to do them more!! Well, it's never too late to turn over a new leaf!

My eating has been at the lower spectrum of my calorie range and I will bring that up more. I've lost a lot of my taste and appetite - temporary, I'm sure.

Shopping ... have you been out shopping or are you still leery on doing so? I've only been grocery shopping twice since March and those two times were in the past 6 weeks. So far, the grocery store has not been packed with people so it was very nice getting my groceries. I've been to the Tan Jay store and bought a few items of clothing, but only went there because they are going out of business and had a good sale on. It's the only store that I bought my clothes so now I won't know where to go! But when I've been out, I wear a mask, carry a hand sanitizer in my purse and use it often and I never, not ever, get close to people! So I feel I'm being careful, cautious and I should be okay. I had to start going out, after months of self-isolation, I was starting to really talk to myself, or should I say 'thinking out loud?' Since my canary died too, I've had absolutely nothing to talk to so, out I go again but carefully!

This is my six month old great-granddaughter Violet and though I've yet to meet her in person, I can tell by her photos what a sweet little girl she is!

And this is Violet's 3 year old sister Hazel, a sweetie pie and loads of fun!

Anyway, that's been my day. Just doing daily chores, catching up on a bit of snooze, and for that I got out of my pj's and into jeans and pullover, LOL. Tomorrow I want to go down to the lobby and check my mail box, that gets me out of my apartment.

Enjoy your evening! "CHEERS!"

    What cuties emoticon Love the Canadian Seasons & yes it started getting cold early, but we love walking sometime more in the cold weather than in the hot stuff. Just make sure to take my trusty ski pool once the snow flies. Enjoy the fall

    I agree with you, Gloria. If we are sensible and careful, we can go out shopping. We need to have some socialization.

    Lovely pictures of the girls. They are so cute.

    It's crazy how fast the weather changed. We were 93 on Monday and Tuesday it was 32 and snowing. Stay warm and inside.

    The kids are getting so big. They're so precious and beautiful. Hazel's curls are amazing.

    I agree with the need to get out but then the media gets its hair on fire as say and then people go back into hiding and out only when needed. sorry your clothing store is going out of business . emoticon

    Love all the pictures. Little Violet is certainly growing! The store you get your clothes from that's closing. Are they doing any on line ordering or have a site on line? Maybe you could have a family member help you or look for you. I do a lot for my mom on line as even though she has a computer, she seems not able to use it to make grocery or clothing orders. So that's how I help her and we are 1500 miles apart.

    Love your pictures -- your great-granddaughters are adorable.
    I'll bet you are really looking forward to seeing them -- hopefully, soon!
    Good for you having a goal of doing regular exercise -- way to go!

    A couple of sweeties.

    I know you will be pleased with the cooler weather.
    My hope for you is a good nights sleep and that nasty cough to get taken care of.
    Joanne had it for months and months.

    Hugs to you Gloria.

    Oh, my...bundle up and stay warm!
    It would also help to walk in place, in front of the tv, maybe? to stay warm, in addition to doing your leg exercises.
    Maybe coming here every day and posting what you have done to stay active would help!
    Or checkmarks on your calendar?
    So, we rarely went out at all the first two months but now go out to shop (as seldom as possible), like you, masked and with sanitizer handy.
