Need To Get Out

Internet service is S L O W. Could be the storms and wind and I doubt Sprint consider this a priority. I was going to post some pictures, but I would lose my train of thought waiting for them to appear.

Provisions are running low and it is time to place another grocery order. The novelty of hunting for my food items online has worn off. I want to stroll the aisles of a grocery store and ponder things. I want to peruse the clearance aisle and talk to myself about possibilities. Here is where I would insert the photo of the 12 pack of double roll Charmin HeWho is my hero scored.

Of course, one cannot build a sandwich with Charmin. Well, I suppose you could, but who would eat it? The sun made an appearance today. I mowed. I actually mowed the most I have managed so far and didn't have to take a nap! Progress! Tomorrow I plan to tackle the showers and restrooms. Need to get them ready just in case we open up next month.

I have to admit that I have enjoyed my hibernation. My canine contingent has enjoyed it, as well. But I am ready to get back to a semblance of normal. Just the other night I spent nearly 15 minutes try to coax my nightgown down from the bed to go out for a last bathroom break before going to sleep. The room was dark, with just the light from the hall and it looked like a dog on the bed. When the three dogs came into the room and looked up at me along with HeWho took them out.

Yeah, it's time for me to get out ….. with a mask and gloves!

Heh, heh! I'm sure your nightgown is a loyal companion!

I suspect, if I had a job, or something to do, I'd be anxious to get back to it, too. But I don't and so I'm not.

It is nice to get out but not practical at this time

To put things in perspective, my “ old man” is in the hospital since Wednesday. Our daughter is a respiratory therapist handling Coronavirus positive patients in the same hospital. He SO MUCH wants to come home, but his white cell count is too high. The workers taking care of
him will be glad to see him leave. He is the Energizer Bunny type; feels fine and wants to be busy mowing and feeding the birds. He thought he was coming home this evening. When I was told by daughter that he has to stay, I chickened out and let her tell him. ( Since I can’t visit.)
He tested negative. I don’t know if that means he will stay negative.
I do hear you, though, Kathy. Yesterday I asked up and went to Walmart. Had to have clips for my long hair!!

I remember recently not making the bed all day because I thought my cat was asleep under the covers which were all lumpy and messed up and I didn't check because I don't like to wake her unnecessarily, when it was her dinner time I was surprised to see her running in from the back porch area.

Oh you made me laugh out loud. I needed that. I bought flowers yesterday and smile every time I gaze at them. Sunshine would be my picker upper. It plays tag with me. I go outside with a book, it hides behind a cloud. I go inside, the sun returns.
