THX for your comment about my garden work. It REALLY helps me, so much, get 'centered'. I'm not performing right now & miss my 3 mile hikes, nature preserve closed. So making our world, our paradise, beautiful, feels wonderful!

emoticon 5-2-2020 It's Saturday & I played in our garden. The jasmine needed some love & fertilizer! I got to it after walking LUCY. Spent about 3 hours weeding, feeding & adding more top soil & checking the drip system. "They " are all happy now. No one can see what I did, but I KNOW the jasmine is happy!!!! I think it may bloom for another week or 2, with my love. They are in BIG pots, so they needed it. It's 95 now, I'm resting after a VERY quick swim (my first time this year, water still a little cold) & fresh strawberries & cottage cheese, pool side. I'm taking it a little slower today, yesterday was fun but VERY intense out in the world! emoticon I'm doing SP Nicole's 12 minute core work out, then maybe read this afternoon. I'm reading a book about our national parks. PRETTY! Have a great weekend everyone!

Sparkling, you've done a lot of work, a WHOLE lot! emoticon I thought I did well when I was pulling up ivy, but I cast my vote for you.

Today got sunnier and warmer as the day went on, but it's still cool. DH mowed the lawn. He's helping someone with a transportation issue tomorrow and Sunday, so I have a couple days to myself. I'd like to take a nice drive and see how the trees are blossoming. emoticon

emoticon emoticon APRIL! 4-30-2020 I had an intense time, yesterday. Mom (91 yrs.) went into the hospital. She couldn't walk, or even put her legs into bed. Her new room mate, (a God send) called 911. Turns out Mom was dehydrated. Drinking only about 4 cups of tea, a day. (they wouldn't let me into the hospital & I live 5 hours away) Mom's room mate is NOT a care giver, just a wonderful friend. She couldn't lift Mom's legs into bed. She has a bad back. When she moved in with Mom, in late January, Mom was doing good.I talked with Mom, late afternoon after she got home. We talked & cried & laughed. She promised to drink more water. I was hoping to visit Mom for Mother's Day. But with everything being closed AND DH & his business still going & Lucy needing me here, I'm not going. I did many errands, 'out there'. I only go out about 1 time a week. This episode with Mom, helped all of us, realize we need to make a new plan, for her, just in case. So we are.

Today I hacked more of the Cat's claw. About 3 feet. It is SO pretty, sorry it has to go. But the neighbors house has become a fire trap. Just not worth it. Also, it is killing bushes. BUMMER. Just to let you know, our property is quite small. Not even a 1/4 acre. It has a 1,500 Square foot house & A HUGE pool. Not really much room for a plant like this. I'm sure it would be beautiful on VERY large acres of land. But not in the city. The landscapers put it in, when the pool went in, 2005. I knew it was climbing over the wall & asked the gardener to keep it trimmed. But, it is what it is ,right? I AM getting ALLOT of exercise, & it is helping me let go of frustrations. A GREAT work out. I feel SO accomplished when I finally finish for the day. ALL in early morning. 102 degrees yesterday. I start after LUCY's walk. So I'm back to work, thx for reading! IF I can help you in anyway, just ask! Anyone want some Cat's claw???? LOL!

(before)

(during, still many feet to go)

Steady rain all this morning!

Overslept! Woke up about 8:40 today. Have not wanted to get out of my PJs.

But, I've followed through and my meals so far.

And, gotten a little bit of work done!

Off and on rain here. Looking forward to a day of sunshine.

Had a nice chat with a friend. As has become usual, I need to make a couple more masks today.

Today was much calmer than the last two. Got some work done, got my personal email inbox under 100.

Straighten up my office so you can see most of the floor. Still lots of boxes to sort through.

We had the cleaners come back. We had asked them not to come at first during this time. But, I decided I needed to trust their processes. We just went to the basement while they cleaned. They come over two weeks and with 3 of us here nonstop I was not keeping up.

Pat - it's great that you can help out a couple with masks and donations from another family.

Angela - we're supposed to get a lot of rain tomorrow, several inches. Ugh!!

It is overcast today and was supposed to rain this morning but so far nothing. I am not sure what it is going to do for the rest of the day but I am planning on getting my walk in at noon.

I did not sleep well last night as my back is out again. So onto the floor I go trying to get it to straighten out. I have to get some good exercises to try.

Not much else going on so have a great day and stay safe

The day started way too early -- 3:30 -- and I couldn't sleep, so I started sewing more masks. Cleaning ladies were an hour and a half late, not arriving till almost noon. Tackled a number of tasks: sorting, cleaning, preparing for donation, then gave a sewing lesson to my friend down the street who was having trouble with her mask construction. DH had 4 or 5 conference calls, but both of us were hungry, so we ate a little after five. We had bought two meals each at at local restaurant. They were brought home cold and easily reheated. I was thankful for that.

Tomorrow someone is coming by to pick up a thumb drive from my son. She has never been here, so I'm glad the place is clean. Later, after dinner, a couple is coming by to get a couple masks and have dessert. Little does she know, I have a large donation for them, given by a person from church who now lives out of state on a military base. She wanted to share her blessings with some people who are having a hard time of it during the pandemic. I'm so happy to be the go between who gets to enjoy the surprise.

Happy Tuesday!

Today I was at the school before 8am so I'd be done with checks before the custodian left at 10am. I do not want to be responsible for setting the alarm!! Our custodians are now taking turns each day to go into the building to check for vandalism, leaks, etc...

Sorted through about 4 weeks of mail that was picked up 2 week ago, hope that's long enough for it not to be contaminated. Did wash my hands and lower arms afterwards and made it through the whole sorting WITHOUT touching my face!!

I've gained about 4 pounds since this whole mess started. :( I'm going to blame Easter candy....

Time to get serious again! Getting more steps than ever, so I know it's the calories in, not the calories out that's the problem!

Yesterday I was in a team meeting that my boss was also in and not even 15 minutes into the call my power went out - that was at 10:14 am and it did not come back on until 2:30 pm. I missed 2 calls. Funny thing is we had another power outage last Thursday from 2:30 until 6pm. Both times they said it was a bird getting into the wires. I sure hope that does not happen too often. My husband has started researching generators and they are very costly.

Today is not too bad a day and I got out on my walk at noon with my sister. It is not sunny but wispy clouds. It is supposed to rain again tomorrow morning.

Have a great day and stay safe

emoticon 4-28-2020 THX Peaches11: Great info about cat's claw being an herb & usually grows in rain forest. Interesting it is in our back yard. The area it grows IS very rain foresty. Lot's of humidity, because of the pool & watering system. Under palm trees. We actually planted it on the fence backing up to the park. Didn't want kids coming over it. Seems to work. The area I am clearing out, I didn't know it was growing there! Truly amazing plant. I 'worked' another 150 minutes, today. 3 more feet. PLUS found the water control 'hole'! Been looking for years! After walk with LUCY & before the heat hit. About 6:30 am. I sure am getting exercise! Mostly like pulling ropes. GREAT core workout. I'm back to work, (inside). Not sure this is very interesting to you, but it IS what I am doing! Be happy everyone! & I will try, too!

emoticon 4-27-2020 I've been adding A lot more minutes, gardening. emoticon emoticon It is AMAZING how much 'cats claw' has taken over part of our back yard & the neighbors house, from our side!! The vines are an inch thick! I DO need to get out at sunrise if I'm going to tackle that plant again, it IS huge & spreads EVERYWHERE! emoticon 180 minutes of gardening! Glad my 'core' is strong!

First, I walked LUCY dogie emoticon . Then I got our raw veggies packed, rainbow carrots; asparagus; celery; snow peas; for my 'grab & go' even though I don't go out much, these days. I still eat them for lunch or snack. (Turkey jerky; hard eggs; or celery & peanut butter, too) emoticon Made our GREEN drinks, breakfast. Also made Lucy her favorite 'soup' veggie & chicken. emoticon The temps are going up. It's 96 today. 102, emoticon tomorrow, only down to 77. It was 67 high LAST Monday! I am being VERY adaptable emoticon with our life right now. Plus working, of course! Sharing a little with you! emoticon Be happy & safe!! AND I will try, too! emoticon emoticon

My husband is busy cleaning up the garage and there were some things put out there from the move. 4 trunks (i think 3 of them are full of crystal) and my trunk which contains all kinds of things I am looking forward to seeing again. Of course my trunk is on the bottom of the pile and the trunks are too heavy to be moving around, so I will have to start at the top when I am ready to go through the crystal.

We also found 2 suitcases that I had that I filled with memorabilia - so I had my husband bring one of them in so that I could go through it. Now the second bedroom is filled with a musty smell and I am almost through the first suitcase. I was a packrat - I found newspapers or newspaper articles on the deaths of all kinds of people who I had no association with - Elvis, Agatha Christie, Bing Crosby - etc etc. So I threw all those out and only kept true memorabilia. Things like souvenir books from the Edmonton Commonwealth Games (my mother was in charge of the nursing staff for that), my report cards (and I found them all), and some other neat things. I am getting excited to finish this one so that I can get started on the other one.

Dull cool cloudy day today but I will get out for my walk at noon.

Have a great day and stay safe

Em, what fun to be able to keep busy, setting up a new household, especially at this self-isolating time.

Speaking of which, I read someone's comment that made me emoticon
She said she and her boyfriend were keeping in touch by phone, since they were both self-INSULATING!

Sunshine today. May take a drive after the laundry is done. Two more loads!

emoticon DH and I bought house- a smaller one as kids are now in their 20's . The empty nest. Closed on 3/30
It has been an adventure during this time!

Usually- would have th e 4 kids and friends help with move. I moved boxes and boxes and we hired a moving company to move big things. Piano for example.

Settling in to new house and building routines!

Today- I have to go to old house and do a sweep through clean.

Merry Monday!

I took a walk this morning. I certainly have not gotten in as much exercise as I did before COVID-19 closed our gym. However, I am trying to do something every day. This evening I am doing some laundry. I finished cleaning the bathrooms earlier. I plan to go out for groceries tomorrow. Of course, I will wear the mask and gloves.

Pat - emoticon to your daughter.

Sparkling - your weather is already hot in Las Vegas. I hope that your city can open soon. We are losing some businesses in my city due to the shutdown.

Angela - so sorry to hear about the storm. They can be frightening.

DJ - many years ago we had a mouse in the garage. He decided to take a ride with me in the car. As soon as I saw it running around the floor, I really freaked out. They scare me. Especially in a confined space.

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

For most of this past week, I was in a funk. I will blame it on the mouse! emoticon
Luckily, we haven't seen signs of anymore!! We plugged up many holes years ago and hadn't seen any in years. Hoping this one snuck in through the garage.

But, anyway, I fell behind on my personal emails, SP, almost everything.

Did get my work done and some exercise on several days, so not all that bad.

Got my bike ride in today, so won't be sneaking up on any mice tomorrow morning.

My husband is thinking about building an ark! emoticon

Hopefully I'll keep up with all of you all week, this week.

Our hail came over a week ago. As we walk, we see lots of new roofs and signs touting work done by contractors who do damage control. Right after we moved into this house, high winds tore off shingles and siding. It was then that our roof was replaced. Still holding up.

Today is DIL's birthday. For a month and a half, she and Son are the same age. Too bad it's raining. Maybe the sun will come out later for her day. Tomorrow, my dad would have been 106! He was 12 years older than my mom, and she didn't have me till later in her life. In other words, I still feel like a young chick. emoticon

We had the biggest storm I have seen since moving here. The thunder was loud and long, and the hail. It was coming down very fast and the wind was blowing. Now the sun is peeking out like nothing happened. Although everything is wet.

While I am puttering around today I am also taking it easy and doing more me things than things that need to get done. Seems I need more of these kind of days lately - I will be glad when everything gets back to normal

Have a great day and stay safe

A couple we know stopped in to see us on their way to walk at Stan Hywet, the Seiberling (Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co) home in Akron. They have opened their grounds for walkers. I hope they continue to keep this up, because the peony gardens are something to behold, but they are not near blooming yet. My neighbor down the street wants to go there to walk. It's a beautiful day for it, but DH says rain is coming this evening.

The house got a good tidying before they came and DH mowed the lawn. I swept the end of the driveways for ourselves and the neighbors. Why can't smokers use their ashtrays! Come to think of it, neither of our vehicles has an ashtray. What is up with that?

Take out food is ok. I had several hours of a problem yesterday from a mom & pop place. They just aren't ready to be serving curb side. I am learning patience, no kidding! It could be worse. There could be NO food, right?

My back is still sore and I did the Tiger Balm thing again last night but I do think it is getting better. We had a power outage yesterday. It started at 2:30 pm and went until 6:00 pm. I was going to make spaghetti sauce for dinner but was not going to start it at 6 in the evening so it is for tonight.We just had something light last night.

A beautiful day today, the sun is out and the sky has wispy clouds. My husband got rid of 2 wasps nests inside of the little storage shed we have and he hung fake wasps nests to hopefully discourage them from coming back

That is really weird not accepting credit/debit. and doesnt it always rain when you want to wash your car? LOL

Have a great day and stay safe

I was turned away from the car wash, because they take neither cash nor credit now. One must be signed up for the monthly wash option. For employees who are afraid to touch bills or plastic, you'd think they'd be wearing masks. Not.

I came home and left the car in the drive and went in to get the vacuum and a bucket of cleaner. When I came back, it had begun to rain. Hrumph! emoticon

Ordered online from Olive Garden. Texted the confirmation number to DH, but he got there and they said they didn't have the order, so he waited for them to make it and made him pay again. My, my. They will be hearing from me.

It started out raining this morning and then cleared up by 10 and warmed up. It is still overcast and I think there will be more rain coming.

I had a really bad night - I threw my back out and could not sleep as a result. I finally just lay down on the floor and stayed there for 20 minutes. Then my husband put Tiger Balm on my back and when I got into bed I lay on my back with a pillow under my knees. I did actually fall asleep and feel better today but my neck is still really sore. Going to try the Tiger Balm and sleeping on my back again tonight.

Have a great day and stay safe

emoticon You find the most wry comics, WALLA.

Lawn company fertilized this morning. It flurried again last night, so the grass is wet. I guess this means DH can't mow this afternoon. The temps should be around 60. He went to Son #2's house yesterday and helped spread the truckload of new topsoil. With the shade of very large trees in the front, not much grass grows. He is not one to care much about a lush lawn, so this is a last ditch effort to make it look good outside while making other improvements inside before they sell.

Not sure about the temps & the virus. It's going to be 90 here, today. People still not doing good with it!

emoticon 4-22-2020 Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day! Here is a song, that is perfect for it! Be happy, stay safe & thank you for being 'here'!

"Let there be peace on earth & let it begin with me.
With God as our father, brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my sisters, in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now!
With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow,
to take each moment, & live each moment, in perfect harmony,
let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now."

We had snow flurries again today. I read an article today that the virus seems to not be such a threat when temps are above 68. If that's the case, we have quite a way to go in this temperature zone. It was so windy that I rolled up the awning for fear of it just ripping right off the house.

Lucy is sporting her new cute cut. I'm sure my DIL has clipped her pooches by now, just for ease of care, not because it's warm.

emoticon 4-21-2020 So today, a busy day so far! LUCY had a new mobile groomer, come to the house. (Her favorite was closed down). I found FURRY LAND from a friend of ours. They practice 'social distancing' have face masks & gloves. What usually takes about 4 hours, at the salon, took 1 hour, today! They only do 1 dog at a time. WOW she has her summer cut. She was suppose to go in, 4 weeks ago. (I couldn't find a groomer that was open) So she got VERY short. I've been brushing her, but the undercoat wouldn't brush. So she had to go much shorter than usual. BUT LUCY seems happy & it was quick & at our home & VERY self contained. The temps are going up to 90 degrees, this weekend. So our walks will be early. Today's walk was nice, before it got too hot. Also doing about 5 loads of laundry. It's 12:30 pm & I finally got upstairs to work on my computer. We use to say "Have a great day, now it's Be Safe.

(on SP today)

This morning I went grocery shopping. It was good that it was at a time not many people are shopping. We have "senior hours" during the pandemic. However, I ended up arriving an hour later. Later, hubby and I took a walk. Getting ready to make dinner and going light again.

Our governor gave his usual daily speech, our state "opens" on May 1st. He still hasn't advised exactly what businesses will open. Anxious to see. He does expect people to continue wearing masks.

Another wonderful day here today but tomorrow it is supposed to rain. We are not getting the same temperature as yesterday but it will still be comfortable. I have a few things to get done today and we are going to bbq ribs for dinner. I like bbq season - all I have to do is make the indoor food and my husband does all the bbqing.

Have a great day and stay safe

When we were first married, we lived in an apartment and did not have our own washer and dryer, so we drove to the in-laws' house and did laundry there. DH was sitting out in the sun and heard a scream. He did not come running. He knew it was the harmless mouse that lived under the dryer. Such compassion!

Today I got in some exercise indoors. It was a beautiful day but I spent it doing things in the house such as laundry. I ordered two masks recently. One from a neighbor and one from a good friend. One is ready and the other should be soon. I know that I will have to wear masks for a while even when the shutdown is over.

emoticon my neck is much better today.

IF you found a mouse, you could 'fill' the holes with steel wool. Worked for me! We had a mama come into our attic & lay 6 babies. Took them all out 1 at a time, Mom first. No kill trap. I lived in a VERY rural area at the time. The mama was happy to have her brood together again!!!

I am going to send my husband out for groceries tomorrow morning during the old peoples time. I have the week planned out for meals so also have my grocery list ready. I have enough for today and tomorrow if he doesn't get there until Wednesday.

It is a beautiful day today and it is supposed to get to 22C today. I love sitting by the window looking out and feeling the nice breeze come in. I have already been out for my walk with my sister and look forward to sitting outside later.

Have a great day and stay safe

Linda - hope the neck is feeling better this morning!

Set my alarm and slowly got up to go ride my indoor bike. Heard strange noise, went back upstairs to get DH.

DH found mouse in laundry room - mouse is now outside!

I was exhausted from the experience and I wasn't even in the laundry room. But, did ride the bike, did my arm weights, stretched and iced knees.

Finally time to do my job and will take a break later for a shower!!!

Hope your neck is better, Linda. Makes you miss being able to get a massage.

I'd zest the lemons, then squeeze out the juice. Both can be frozen.

DH called with news that perhaps the groceries will be closed to in-store shopping. We will only be able to have curbside carry out, which at present means at least a two-day wait. I'm on my way out right now.

I woke up this morning with a terrible neck ache. It has been with me all day. I did quite a bit of cleaning yesterday. I really did not feel like doing much today. Hope it is all better tomorrow.

Happy for it. emoticon (I NEVER get down, like this) Our friend gave us some fresh organic lemons. emoticon Not sure what to do with all of them, I will probably share with neighbors, too! I generally only put a slice in hot water, once in awhile. I don't want them to rot! Any ideas? I also made FULL grain waffles with pecans in it. Topped with blueberries emoticon & maple syrup. Sauteed greens, YUMMY!




(he also cut my hair, Woo Hoo!!!!!)

Hummingbirds like my coral bells. I've moved them from every house. Gives me a thrill to see one.

DH walked emoticon around the neighborhood. Many were mowing emoticon , some walking. Everyone was waving. It's about all the socializing we get at present, but it's nice to see the friendliness. emoticon

It is a much cooler day here today but tomorrow is supposed to be really warm. The sun is peeking out but mostly it is overcast. My sister saw some hummingbirds so I am making up the nectar to put into our feeders so that we can get them hung outside. I hope they will like it and come around - I love watching hummingbirds.

Have a great day and stay safe

Happy Saturday! No work today! Yeah!

Just had a Zoom Call with our girls in different cities. So nice to see them and I feel like they are doing alright.

One is working in a Walgreens and is very happy now that they have put up the plexiglass.

And, I say "no work", but have to finish our taxes. While the feds extended the deadline, our state will make you pay interest if you don't pay by May 1st. So, I have to finish soon!!

And, just learned that I will now be keeping my in-laws "books". My MIL is losing her short term memory and has always been their household's bookkeeper. I'm happy to help in this way, since it's right up my alley! emoticon

Walla I LOVE the spring cartoon!!!!!

emoticon 4-17-20 I'm having a lovely, low energy day. I worked VERY hard yesterday, gathering food & doing errands. emoticon Protected of course. It DOES take allot of energy, to 'stay safe' out in the world. emoticon Catching up with DH business on the computer, while listening to classical music. emoticon Today is date night. emoticon So we will play with our favorite TV shows & be together. I'll make BIG salads emoticon & have pizza delivered. emoticon Mine fav is double pineapple & pepperoni. A REAL splurge. (I don't eat much of the crust) Happy, healthy Friday! THX for sharing yourself with all of us! emoticon I'm here for you too! emoticon

Right now it is sunny but the weather forecast is for rain so I am getting out for my walk early before it decides to start raining. The forecast I can look at is for Kelowna which is about 20 minutes away by car so it could be raining there and not here for sure.

Finally Friday and I want to use up my blueberries today by making muffins

Have a great day and stay safe

Although the snow on the ground has melted, it has begun snowing again. This time only light flakes are drifting down. They must be practicing social distancing, as they are, at present, pretty far apart. Last week I was sitting on the patio with shorts on, getting my Vitamin D. What is up with this?!

It is another sunny day here and today we are supposed to get to 17C. I am looking forward to sitting outside for a while today and enjoying the weather and the view.

Work is still busy even with everyone working from home. Some things are more difficult with everyone doing it but we will get through this

Have a great day and stay safe

WALLA, kind of reminds you of the medical people who are working front lines with the Covid-19 victims.

I just read that the virus becomes more virulent when the temperatures are colder. I awoke to a snow-covered landscape for the second time in a week. Oh my. Today the high will be 45, but only feel like 37. Last year it was 69, nine degrees higher than the average. At this point, I'd be thankful to be average.

Lots of typing to do today. Our dinner guest from Tuesday sells Avon. She left an order here to be delivered, since the gal lives close to me. I'm doing a parking lot hand-off this afternoon. I was thinking it would be rather funny to use a long pole to pass the bag to her car. She probably would appreciate that I was doing it tongue in cheek since we both are on the same page concerning trusting in God's promises.

Did you get a postcard in the mail with the President's Covid-19 guidelines? It did say we could gather, but with no more than 10 people. One of my cleaning women had been around someone who was sick a couple weeks ago, so she was courteous enough to self isolate for 2 weeks. Her sister's daughter came instead. The same goes for my DIL, who stayed away after getting a runny nose after flying home at the beginning of March. Doubtless, it was due to being on the airplane, but she was keeping us safe anyway. So many Bible promises refer to keeping us free from harm and evil, so under His wings I have learned to trust. I still practice caution and do not put myself in harm's way, but I am also not fearful.

Walked a bit with DH while it was still sunny. Mighty cold out there and rain is predicted this afternoon and we may even have another snow by Friday. Brrr.

WOW! You can have people inside your home! Lucky you!

emoticon 4-15-2020 I made a BIG batch of veggie soup with a little chicken. Using up the fresh veggies before we can't eat them. I make a special batch for LUCY dog, too, she loves it! No spices, dogs can't have onions, garlic, mushrooms or chocolate, ALL deadly to dogs, just in case you didn't know!! I make the BIG batch, (about 1.5 gallons) put her's into her container, THEN, add the spices to ours. I do add a little mesquite smoke flavoring for taste. Makes it REALLY amazing, deep flavors! I add whole grain brown rice noodles, too! I think I'll make whole grain corn bread for the soup tonight. I add jalapenos to it, YUMMY! I'll freeze several quarts, for another time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (I'm off to walk LUCY & then me, more! emoticon

Lovely flowers, Sparkling.

Too busy to walk today. Cleaning ladies here. Made macaroni salad and a pumpkin pie. Had a couple over for take out BBQ ribs, then played a dice game called greed. You'd better be good at quick addition!

I heard 'they' are thinking of closing down the USPO! WHAT??????

emoticon 4-14-2020 Today I have been catching up with DH business, as we learn to adjust to this online, everything. emoticon We are doing good. A LOT more cuddly &. LUCY gets longer walks, well, at least as long as she wants! I bring her home, brush her & go out for a longer walk around the neighborhood. Remember to have fun!

A Humming bird came to our upstairs window & 'played' with me for several minutes. SO PRECIOUS!!!! I kept talking to her. No photos, but MAXIMUM fun! Be safe & I will too!

It's sunny/partly cloudy here today after a lot of rain, wind and tornado warnings yesterday.

Back at the school building for printing checks this morning. This afternoon will be signing and stuffing them in envelopes. Then done with that grade!!

Getting my 7000 steps each day, mostly by walking laps in my house!

Happy Tuesday!

Funny how our eating habits have changed. Using leftovers in different ways, planning meals differently based on what we can get from the store. Being more frugal with what we have. Buying less or not buying any junk food. While this may be a blessing in disguise I am sure we are all wanting to get back to normal. I wonder if we will keep some of the better habits we are having to create once this is over.

Cloudy day here and supposed to get some rain but then sun for the rest of the week.

Have a great day and stay safe

emoticon 4-13-2020 Our Easter was good. I made sure it was a celebration! Twinkle lights on, I decorated the table, cleaned downstairs, made grilled fish & pineapple & Cosco's carrot & zucchini chocolate muffins. (120 cals each) We watched a serious, uplifting movie, called THE SHACK. Walked LUCY in the quiet area near 'her' park. Usually brimming with people for egg hunts, but it is closed for refurbishments. Lights & new bathroom. They started just before lock down. Called Mom & just had fun being together! emoticon I walked on Saturday at my favorite Nature Preserve & saw a bunny! Hope you had a good 1 too! Celebrating Spring, right???? emoticon
