It was good. Odd, of course. Cold. We even had snowflakes! DD2 showed up at the door, came right in with the dog who immediately jumped into my lap and sneezed in my face! She had necessities to pick up since they moved, I get that. Bu... Read more

By 6 AM I was in the grocery, covered with my mask, new list in hand and a strange credit card in my pocket. I shopped for my neighbor Ruth and her caregiver Alicia. Home delivery isn't working well. She's chomping at the bit now that the s... Read more

DH opted to walk with me for a change. It was slower than my usual pace and that was a good thing! We investigated dead branches hanging from trees and will check them out in a few days after big winds come through. Spring is spring cleaning. ... Read more
Nothing to see here...

It's a "bits and bobs" day. Cleaning. A bit of gardening. DH is trying to make something to hold down my soaker-sprinkler hose. Last year I kept uncurling it. Organized the freezer as I lost control of "first in, first out". I picked up a ... Read more

It seems just yesterday I had mentioned I wasn't feeling so "Sparky" and had not blogged much. Now you're stuck with me daily! Against doctors advice, I HAVE to walk to get some cardio. I think perhaps I will see a knee replacement sooner tha... Read more

God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us - in the dreariest and most dreaded moments - can see a possibility of hope. Maya Angelou I've been seeing rainbows lovingly drawn by neighborhood children posted in windows. They make... Read more

Thanks Bob Seger. emoticon Good idea. What did you listen to in 1979? 1995 or gulp, 1963? Listen to... Read more
Bonus blog: How to and not to shop. Long but I hope you read my observation.
Thursday, April 02, 2020      25 comments

I was so disheartened from my 6 ft distance of the person at the self-serve register in front of me. Here is NOT how to shop. Pardon the description of the very nice well-intentioned lady. She had the big hood of her coat pulled over her he... Read more

What to do when I've run out of ideas. The house is clean and the food is prepared. Tired of TV. I tried to find TP and hand sanitizer at a local out-of-the-way store this morning. I was the only customer! No luck but I bought a coloring bo... Read more
