Routines and COVID cleaning
Monday, July 06, 2020
Nothing much new here. We are in our routine, some sort of morning exercise, a morning project or two, lunch, some Netflix or other viewing, afternoon project (a nap for Ken
) then dinner.
I've started swimming a few times a week if I can get a lane. The gym is being pretty good about adjusting to the ever changing rules and orders, and now everyone has to wear a mask even while exercising. I'm still not comfortable being inside there. But the pool has been wonderful. I'm hoping they take my suggestion of noting if people show up for their reserved lane because lots are not showing up and not canceling.I feel for those staff at the front desk.
I was up early to get my lane time so was surprised that I got a few projects done after I got back. I was shocked to find out how dirty the grout on the bathroom floor was - I had some grout cleaner and man does that stuff work! The bathroom floor looks totally different. Meaning, CLEAN. I'm doing the other bathroom now. I doubt this will be a regular part of my routine as it involves being on hands and knees to scrub but once every 10 years or so....
That's what COVID has done to these habits I guess. I also recently scrubbed some of the blind and window tracks (also quite filthy).
Today I rode my bike just on my own. Ken has strained his ankle again so has been off his feet for a few days. Lots of folks out so I had to be careful of the groups especially the kids.
I saw my sister briefly the other day, had to drop off my nephew's birthday card and some $$. They were planning a get together, but inside so I wasn't comfortable. Their crew has other circles and they also went to church recently so I wasn't taking any chances.
We just finished watching Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu. I signed up for the month free, because of the extra Alone episodes, and it was great. I had read the book but thought the production was better, just my opinion.
Random: here are the girls napping. They tend to squabble a lot but periodically they sleep together.
