Eva - baths are fun? emoticon
Glad you are both able to shop - we are still one person one cart and essential businesses only. I'm totally good with that, considering our results:



Credit union is having their annual shred event this morning and the car is packed. I will be so glad to have the papers out of the garage and DH wants to go out today as well. Double win!

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali: How wonderful! I love it when a neighborhood comes together!

I like medium to big dogs. My favorite childhood pet was a rescued Chow named Ben. He walked me to the bus stop every morning and then came back to walk me home every afternoon. The next in line would be my Bassett, Bandit. My mom prefers "purse dogs." Her favorite dog from my childhood was a rescued Pekingese. I find it funny because her Daisy is 8 1/2 lbs at 1 year old. She's a Pekingese/ chihuahua mix. Gypsy Belle is twice that at 12 weeks. Miss B loves having a dog you can hug without holding it.

But my big girl thinks she a lap dog lol

I'm off to do the shopping this morning. The book store is open and Miss B has asked to go. I need to go to the pet store and buy my zoo flea collars. Everyone needs a bath, including the cats. This will be fun.

Eva - love that you have a pony-dog. (Actually I like that size dog - both Rose and Liz were just under 60 lbs.)
Glad the fibro triggers are lessening - those are added stressors which you don't need.

We had a great emoticon weeding party yesterday - neighbors with 5 kids not only cleaned the beds, but restretched grape vine cables, cut up large felled branches and moved piles of branches where other friends can pick them up for us.
We celebrated with pizza and invited the folks that are cutting our grass. It was a great time!

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali: I've seen the Rollator before. Very cool tool for someone with mobility issues. I wish they would have had one available when my Granny was still alive. It would have made my life, her primary taxi driver and escort, much easier. It will make outings easier for both of you.

How is sorting going?

I get my health checks. I might not like it but I get them. I am blessed to have a good doctor. She listens and doesn't just hand you a pill. She's trying to make sure my anxiety isn't related to other chemical imbalances rather than just handing me off a pill to make me feel better. I think her lack of pill-pushing is why I like her so much.

The Fibro flare is stress-related. It's been going on for months. People keep telling me "stop worrying about the virus." Well, I'm not actually all that concerned about the virus. I do my part to keep myself and others healthy l but I'm no more worried than I am in flu season. However, my mother decided to retire on March 13th. Distance learning began on March 17th. I've had to manage both, plus all the other hats I wear. Both processes are very different when you can't go to a building and talk to someone. What normally takes 30 minutes with an "expert" might take 3 days with me at the helm. Then my MIL has to compete with for attention. And that's an entirely different circus. So I know why it's flared up. Distance learning ended the first of this month. And I have 99% of mother's business handled. So maybe that will help. Now to get my stepdad and MIL to behave.

Miss B's dentist appointment went well. Her no-cavity streak continues. She's 12 and never had a cavity. She was happy that they gave her adult oral care items in her "loot bag".

Gypsy Belle is a pony masquerading as a dog. She's 16.5 lbs. She'll be 12 weeks old Monday. She's slated to be 60-75 lbs as an adult. I really wish I knew what her daddy is! A female boader collie usually doesn't get over 50 lbs so daddy must be a HUGE dog.

Eva - glad to hear you're getting a mammo - not my favorite experience, but if your breasts are not dense, a great detection device. Also glad DH is covered by great insurance and tests.
Sounds like you have a great doctor - glad to hear it and hope they narrow down the fibro-flare causes.

Not sure DH will graduate to a cane, but it's a great tool to teach balance. We've ordered a combo walker/transport for delivery June 4 and the therapist wants to work with him on that as well. Overall we're doing super.

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali, I hope he gets to graduate to a cane!

DH goes for an extensive DOT physical every year that work pays for. Federal requirements make sure that drivers are in pretty good health. You wouldn't believe the list of things they have to keep in check to keep a CDL. And the list of meds a driver can not take and keep a CDL. When he's 50 I'll have to make him go get his colon checked.

The doctor was pleased that my blood pressure is back in the normal range and told me to keep an eye on it. She did not put me back on a birth control pill since I figured out that was the culprit. She said my particular med had a change in formulation and it's caused issues for a number of women my age. She said to continue to period track and continue with my black cohosh as it helps with menopausal symptoms too. She is having my thyroid checked due to my weight gain and low energy complaints. My grandmother had thyroid issues and a cousin currently being treated for hypothyroid. I'll know about it in a few days. Despite taking iron pills and vitamins daily I'm anemic. Iron, B-12, and B-6 are all low. My ANA is high and my AST is high, neither alarmingly so. AST has to do with liver enzymes and inflammation. It's common for it to run a point high when you have no gallbladder. She's not concerned about it. The ANA (anti-nuclear antibodies) is a maker for fibromyalgia and lupus. It indicates inflammation. Mine is up 1 point from last year, making it to 2 points above normal. It stays 1 point high all the time and has for 20 years. So part of my issues is fibro-flares. I'm to double the iron pills and start taking a b-complex.

And for my birthday this year, I get my first mammogram. Here's to 40.

Eva - sounds like emoticon appointments will keep all sentient beings in your house healthy - how about DH?

The remediation took about 2 hours. They drilled a hole in the floor and installed a pipe into the drain tiles, extended it through the roof and attached a fan in the roof rafters. They also sealed the sump and included a small silicone sealed opening for the electric cord and allowing water to exercise the pump as needed (we did once a month). My guess is if you don't have a sump pump (first house we've had one), you don't have to worry about radon.
The home health nurse has released DH, but OT and PT continue. The emoticon news is they are going to see if he can walk with a cane as opposed to walker - Keep your fingers crossed!

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali, I have heard of Radon remediation but had no idea what the process was.

How was home health and teledoc?

I watched Marie Kondo's Netflix series where she helped people declutter their homes. It was interesting.

I have a doctor's appointment today. She's going to remind me I am on the verge of 40 and my body is different than when I was on the verge of 30.

Tomorrow Gypsy goes to the vet. I'm sure I'm going to be told she is nearly 20 lbs and fiesty.

I'm in the process of making Miss B a dentist appointment. She's overdue.

Eva - the treasures turned out beautifully!
Can't wait to hear about your youtube channel. I don't watch, but I'm sure it will be a great success!

I am more than happy to rid myself of stuff. I found Marie Kondo's book compelling (thank goodness as we'd already done one round of clearing). She's spot on about possessions bringing joy and touching or using is honoring them.

Radon remediation happening today - drilling through the concrete to find the drain lines and then sealing the sump pump to move the gas up and out. We cancelled cleaning (it was down pouring) and have a telehealth doc meeting + home health folks. Busy day.

Kali, you sound excited to become almost a minimalist.

We finished the porch furniture. The swing, birdbath, and plant stand all came from Jim's grandmother. The bistro set is my yard sale find from 20 years ago. I've kept it that long. It moved up from Mississippi with me.





While Jim did the last coats of paint I finished cleaning and oiling this antique Tell City rocker. It's maple instead of pecan.


Then I had to repair the cat tower. Gypsy managed to get the rope loose and started pulling it around the house. I wish I had a video of Butters on top like he thought it was a new ride...

I did start a youtube channel. Now I need to figure out how for Miss B to help me post to it. She loves videoing.

Eva - glad Ms A & B are having a grand time and you have found treasures from people you and Jim loved. We cleaned a brass bed from cousins and it became even more special.

We're moving in the opposite direction and shedding almost all those gifts. We are boxing up the serving pieces to my mom's china for a niece, but otherwise 'gifting' our goodies to others. Our meals will be prepared for us so we'll be taking very little from the kitchen - a few plates, glasses, silverware and some microwave dishes, but most small appliances (taking small cuisinart and coffee maker) will be sold. We have a frig and freezer, so I'm sure we'll fill them when we move in, hopefully to have them mostly empty (except with leftovers) thereafter.

We shall see - 6 weeks and counting!

Stay safe and healthy.

Kali, I'm glad DH is doing so well! If he would have been able to move as he wished in rehab he would have made leaps and bounds I'm sure. But they did what they could I'm sure.

I didn't ask, but will you be in charge of meal prep at your new one or is there a cafeteria setting?

Jim's mother has finally, after 11 years, decided it's time to clean out her mother's house. We went Wednesday night and looked at glassware and collectibles. I brought home carnival glass pieces, and antique egg plate and a milk glass pickle plate. We also brought home decorative birds and a birdhouse because Miss B wanted them. We were told to go look at the house to see if we wanted to try and salvage anything.

Yesterday, we went to Mamaw Marie's house. It flat broke my heart. The floors look like bowls. I did manage to safely retrieve Jim's grandfather's rocking chair. It has a low seat and an extra wide bottom. It's made of pecan, I think. I have it cleaned and oiled. Now I need to find a cushion.

I brought home a concrete bench that matches one I already own and several lawn ornaments. We also brought home a wrought iron plant stand and a wrought iron swing. It fits on my porch. I need to paint it but that's no problem.

With all the heavy lifting I'm not nearly as sore as I thought I would be. Thank goodness! I have some re arranging to do outside but mostly I'm done.

Miss A is here. The girls went swimming yesterday. They built a fort in the playroom. I packed them a cooler and let them eat and sleep back there. They were happy. When I left they were watching Stranger Things.

Eva - how cool - an exercise partner! My mom tried to tell me how important exercise was, but didn't serve as an example. Ms B has another head start to a fabulous life and I'm so glad you are her mom.
Hope your expanded bubbles bring you joy.

Weekend will be quiet. I only leave DH for small increments of time as nature may call and we both want him to remain continent. It's absolutely amazing how far he's come. One can only wonder where he'd be if they hadn't locked him down for 22 hours a day. (Not their fault I guess, not sure what else they could do in reaction to the virus in a rehab facility...)

Did apply fungicide to a hickory with leaf blight and took the opportunity to treat my lilacs and volunteer oak. Eating our freezer food (much to the displeasure of DH), but we're 6 weeks and counting to move to our new home!

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali, they have opened the world up here in Tn. my specific area has been level for a couple of weeks now with cases so for this we are thankful.

I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. We have expanded our bubble. My niece is coming to spend the night tomorrow night. Then we will move on to friends, possibly in June.

Miss B has decided to exercise with me. So I have a selection beginner videos for her to choose from that I enjoy myself. With the addition of dog walking it ends up being 30 minutes per day of intentional exercise. It's perked her up that it's active, like PE, but I've chosen videos that go slow enough she can keep up and the moves aren't complicated. We will see how long this lasts...

Eva - love Indian food - how fun to make your own!

Every day gets better (well not every day - but definitely 2 steps forward and 1 step back).
We are now 5 weeks, 6 days from moving and I'm not sure either of us are excited as the process has already been a long one.

Statistics are looking good for our area even with our reopening.




It will be so wonderful to get to some semblance of normalcy.

Take care and stay safe and healthy!

Kali, sounds like he really is moving forward. I hope he continues at his PT place of choice. It will make his recovery much easier if it's a place he feels comfortable.

Is he excited about moving?

The funny thing about clothes, Miss B and I can judge what we will wear and the size well enough, but Jim is another story all together. Maybe it's because Miss B and I read the sizing guides? Who knows.

Last night we made Naan Bread and chicken curry. We had never made naan bread before it was fun! A lot like make yeast rolls up until you flatten and grill them.

Eva - love the purple tips! It will be fun to see what style will show off the color best.
Sounds like successful shopping and I so agree trying clothes on (especially with body changes) is important. I have heard several online stores offer free shipping and return, so folks are ordering a couple sizes to find the best fit. May be an option for the next month or so...

Assessments this week from our home health team, so my guess is DH is graduating. We have a wonderful PT office he visited before the heart attack, so I'm hopeful he can continue there. Good to get out as well as help him get stronger.

Kali, $500 worth of insurance isn't much good if you have a ring in there that costs 10X that. I hope you find a small safe that will work for you.

I'm glad DH is graduating from home health, but I can understand your needing them there just to be "off duty." Bittersweet for sure.

We did not brave the mall but found our Khols had a few things Miss B needed as did Shoe Carnival and Target. She ended up with 2 pairs of sandals, a pair of walking/running shoes, and a pair of slip-on Skechers similar to her Vans for $112. Not a bad amount for 4 pairs of shoes. She has a very skinny heel and has always been difficult to fit. Now that's she's in women's shoes she has an easier time and so shoe shopping has become fun rather than a tearful experience.

But I have noticed several stores with wonderful online sales, but the local brick and mortar store is still closed, like Old Navy. And the dressing rooms are closed. That kinda makes trying on clothes difficult. I figure they will have to employ a dressing room attendant to clean regularly at some point. The lines look REALLY long but that's just because of the 6 ft apart. I wills ay Target had more checkouts open than I've seen since Christmas to keep the traffic flowing.

Miss B asked for purple ends for her hair. I gave in and did it for her. It makes her happy and I don't see the harm. I followed her direction as to how much of her hair should be purple. Personally I wish we had done less or did the whole head...

Eva - I'll be interested to hear about your experience. I used to love shopping with my mom and hope your trip is a good one. May be some good sales with so many stores declaring bankruptcy?

Looks like we may be headed into our last week of home health care. The good news is DH is definitely stronger, the bad news is I used those visits as my respite. Regardless, we'll be setting up the next therapy meetings, hopefully @ their office 3 days a week. Getting out will do us both good.

BTW - we're selling our gun safe (guns and ammo already gone), so I was investigating a bank box for important papers, etc. Learned our bank (Wells Fargo) insures the contents up to $500.

Kali, that sounds wonderful!

I have to take Miss B shopping for clothes. She's shot up. She's 5'2" now. Her womanly curves are starting to develop. None of her summer pajamas fit. Her feet have grown. She needs new bras. Her sandals and Vans are too small. The athletic shoes are probably not far behind. She's been robbing my closet, but no 12 year old wants her 40 year old mother's stuff. So today we have to brave stores (most have reopen on TN) since I don't really know her size to order things. At least she might be passed some of the awkward body changes before school starts back.

Eva - hope Snoop does indeed take a photo op! emoticon
Glad Jim will watch with you - family movies are the best and sounds like a very successful girl's day.

We have selected our apartment - it's a little over 1000 sf and has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and living/dining room space. The coolest thing is it has wall space for artwork, so I don't have to leave some wonderful pieces behind. If we end up moving west next time, I can take those pieces for the kids.

Shower in the works today for DH + running some errands. Good to get out!

Kali, your new space is a 2 bedroom "apartment" with a sitting room and a kitchenette, correct? Have you chosen your destination or still considering your options?

You will definitely be wired for sound!

How nice you won't have to worry about dinner for a few days.

Yesterday we watched The Princess Diaries and the newest Freaky Friday. It was a musical. We're saving A Leauge of Their Own for the weekend since Jim actually had an interest in that movie pick. The facials we fun. It is certainly a fun way to teach skincare and grooming to a girl. It doesn't feel nitpicky.

We got word yesterday our June concert has been rescheduled for July 2021. *sigh*

A funny for you. There is a Snoop Dogg concert scheduled for July in Jackson. Mayor Conger keeps telling everyone to follow the guidelines or Snoop ain't coming. Flash to a seemingly unrelated event, a nursing home parade. The residences were outside in masks while family members drove by to wave "Hi". A granny was seen with a sign "I wanna see Snoop." I assume it was her funny way of telling her family to follow the guidelines. Granny made the news. Snoop Dogg got wind of it and replied to her "On My Way Granny."

I've had the biggest laugh. I wonder, for publicity, if Snoop will attempt to have photo op with Granny if the concert gets the green light.

Eva - love that you're having a girl's day. Special memories!
And I love A League of Their Own - definitely worth watching. We haven't had much time for TV, but am getting excited about clearing out the paperwork!

Lost track of days and friends made dinner for us after I ran out and bought meatloaf dinners. We'll be eating beef for a while - they delivered a huge pot roast!

Continuing to go through possessions and planning what we can and cannot take. They will double rod the closets for us, which will help with moving clothes. We're also trying to determine electronics - have a couple sets of Bose speakers, so we'll be wired for sound!

Sounds like all is good there and it is here as well - stay safe and healthy!

Kali- usually they want a walkthrough just about a month before closing, at most. so yes it's a bit early.

Hopefully, your tag sale will happen as planned. You have a busy 6 weeks ahead of you.

MIL was very pleased with her hair. She was a month late on getting her perm, which put her on a normal person's schedule for chemical treatments. That means some of the health I had cautioned her about had returned and it showed in the final dressing.

Miss B doesn't mind laundry but hates the dishes. I think it's the smell of fresh laundry that gets her. She likes scents.

Today we are kicking back and watching a movie and doing facials. Then I'll do her toenails. It's a girl day.

This weekend looks rainy. I think I'll spring to watch A Leauge of Their Own. Mary Pratt, the last member of the all-girls baseball league passed away. She was 101. Anyway, with the lack of sports being so much in the news I thought it might be cool for Miss B to see how the war effort affected baseball due to the WWII draft and the answer to the problem. She enjoys movies about real-life women.

If you have Disney+ you might be interested that Hamilton will be streamed starting July 3rd. It's a live recording of the original broadway cast. Miss B is excited.

Eva - busy day! Glad you're expanding your bubble slowly. Important for the teenage brain (especially if those tween hormones are active...)
Hope your live stream doesn't freeze this time and your MIL will look fab for her grandchild.
Miss B sounds like she's getting her chores down - laundry was never one of my favorites.

We're scheduled to close on July 15 and if sales can be held need to be out July 1 for set-up. (They will need all that time to go through our 'stuff'.) Almost through paper (I keep finding photos to digitize) and focusing on other items. Found out the Knolls is happy to take hardcover books, so we'll be donating some of DH's civil war and history books.

Continued house repair, which I think will be finished the end of the month. The buyers would like to do a 'walk through'. Seems a little early to me, but as soon as I can some semblance of organization, we'll let the realtor know. Anticipating trips to the PT office after home health care finishes, so hopefully timing will be right.

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali, I'm glad DH chose 5 or 6 special ball caps. I'm sure he's been collecting for decades to have that many to sort.

Your adventure makes me want to go clean out my attic.

How is the closing on the house going?

Do you have an indoor dog gate suggestion? Pressure mounted vs hardware mounted?

Off to MIL's this morning to give her a perm. She will look fresh as a daisy for our oldest niece's graduation on Thursday night. They've set it up with social distancing on the football field. I'll be watching from the live stream if I can get it to work. Most years it glitches horribly. When my nephew graduated we got to see him walk and then it froze. But at least we got to see him.


While I'm gone Miss B will be on laundry and pet duty.

Boy, she's had a case of the tween age hormones the last 2 days.

We've decided to expand our bubble and invite her cousin, Miss A., over next Saturday night (May 23). Then maybe if the numbers decline we will look at inviting a friend outside of the family. Movies and board games are in our future.

Eva - what fun and a win-win to burn debris with a fun meal in the mix and letting the family know all you do.
Glad the pup is figuring rides out. We used to love taking the dogs with us.
Hoping you have some good weather headed your way.

The camera equipment fits into two bags, so it is organized and ready for the move. We also went thru a couple hundred ball caps and I was proud DH only took 5 or 6. It was fun for him to see his collection.
More scanning and reviewing stuff in store today as well as home health visits + house repairs.
All is good in NE and here's to you and yours staying safe and healthy!

Happy Mother's Day!

Kali, it seems from what you say here you are actually doing a fantastic job of dealing with the curve balls being thrown your way. It's okay to find Mark's willingness to hand over his equipment silly, just as it's okay for him to find the request unreasonable. He'll let go soon enough.

I don't mind the slow grass growing! But the hail storms are another thing all together.

We took Gypsy on a 5 stop car ride yesterday, delivering mother's day gifts, post office, and Harbour Freight and Tractor Supply. It's mostly just getting use to riding. She did very well. She's figured out that if she does well at a stop there's a training treat in her future. When she figured that out yesterday she walked on her leash like a big girl and rode without "complaining." She's a smart girl.

Afterwards we picked up more debris from the storms then had a fire in the fire pit. We roasted turkey dogs and made s'mores. Gypsy figured out she really likes graham crackers.

Today I get to have fun watching Miss B and Jim do my chores. They always do half the work in twice the time. It's a good lesson for them in what mom does all day emoticon

I know what you mean about bipolar mother nature, but I'm delighted - the weeds are barely growing, giving me a chance to get out there!

Starting to feel like Groundhog Day around here, but actually getting a lot finished. Scanning pictures for later review and categorizing + continuing to gather documents to shred. Next hurdle is Mark's - not sure he's ready to relinquish any of his camera equipment and it seems ridiculous to me. I sure hope he doesn't have to go through this horrible disease just to teach me life's lessons, but I'm starting to learn them. (Even though I was on another planet when patience was handed out...)

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali, if you shared about Liz I missed it. I'm sorry. But the blessings is, she didn't have to leave the people she knew and loved.

Stay warm this weekend. We have recored breaking cold here. I'm tired of bipolar mother nature.

Gypsy has learned that I'm easier to nudge awake so she can get a middle of the night potty break. She's a funny girl.

Eva - love your Marmaduke - it would be fun to know her genetics.
The doctor visit sounds productive in multiple ways. So glad Ms B will be starting weight training - it's been a lifesaver for my bones (osteoporosis runs in the family).

I thought I told you - Liz has crossed the rainbow bridge. She somehow injured her hind leg - tearing tendons and blowing out her knee and we decided to put her down. Difficult decision and not one that has soaked in as caretaking is taking all my time.

Home health care continues as does repair work on the house.
Stack for shredding grows and we're starting on current paperwork. Will be wonderful to complete!

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali, you will get it down I'm sure. I'm glad telehealth went well.

How is the process of finding Liz a family going?

Miss B.'s visit went well. She is 5'2" now. She got her booster shots and I opted in for the HPV vaccine. She asked me to help her start strength training with light weights since the doctor gave the all-clear. We were also thanked for wearing a face-covering by the nurse. Most people did not.

Gypsy's visit went well. She goes back for the second round of shots on the 28th. She is at 12 lbs and growing. They think my hound breed might be a Great Dane (technically a hound) mixed with a border collie. They are judging from foot size and her coat since I know her mother is a rough (long-haired) border collie. Heaven, help me she's going to be a Scooby-Doo/Marmaduke. No matter what I'm not having her ears docked.

The family is discussing getting a dog breed DNA test to find out for sure.

We came home and cleaned up the debris from the back yard. The rain will keep us from doing the front and side today. But it's just rain. No storms today thank goodness.

Eva - I don't blame you for being worried, but I've picked up some prescriptions for DH and the doc's office is as sterile as possible.
I too love those 'who done it' dinner mystery boxes and you might even find some new foods to try.

Telehealth and home health care going well. A little concerned with low blood pressure - it's been below 100 a couple times. Getting elimination regular while dealing with incontinence is proving a new challenge, but this too shall pass.

Kali, How was telehealth and therapy?


I've thought about getting us a murder mystery box. Not the cold case one that's a real murder but like a dinner theater in a box, just for fun. We love a good who done it.

We had another hail storm last night. Between Covid-19, "Murder Hornets", and hail storms I'm beginning to think it's the Hunger Games, and my archery skills are lacking. If President Snow knocks on my door I'm done.

We have to go into the PCP office today for Miss B's 12-year check-up and vaccinations. I'm a little nervous about it because I know they have a testing area in the building, but the CDC is asking people to please keep those shots up to prevent an outbreak of something in addition to Covid-19. So I'm doing my due diligence. I have to remember they have a separate entrance that is for COVID patience only and dedicated staff members working that one room and entrance. We have masks and hand sanitizer. It'll be okay. They are also doing anti-body testing, so if they ask while I'm there I'll probably allow them to check me.

Eva - thanks for the recommendation - if I get some time, I'll check Good Omens out.
Always a silver lining - a little more sleep for a missed zoom and how fun to play Clue - it's been years, but I loved that game - it was Dr. Plum in the library...
I can see you as a pet whisperer, both as a child and adult.

A little emoticon today - much appreciated.
DH has PT this morning and a telehealth meeting with his PCP this afternoon.
I'm continuing to clear out recyclable documents and waiting to hear about living comparisons.
Will keep you informed.

Stay safe and healthy!

Kali: Poor DH. I hope you can get it all worked out soon. I know he was very active in setting up the credit union. I imagine a community where he can easily find friends for bridge would be very helpful for his mental health.

Is it a possibility to put the tag sale items in storage until you get the all-clear to actually have the sale? Or can they do a virtual sale? Our online auction and tag sale people have been doing online tag sales and then scheduling a day to have a representative available for staggered pick-up times.

I'm glad your costs for repairs are reasonable.

I do enjoy training Gypsy. I have a reputation as a cat lady, but I really just love animals. Cats just seem to find me. Every cat here, except Esmerelda (Essie), found it's way into my home. The boys were both feral cats that decided they wanted to try the house life and never left. Pandora was dropped here and I pulled her out of a tree several years ago. I adopted Essie to keep her out of a shelter in the first place. When I was a kid I raised orphaned squirrels.I'm a weird one LOL.

Miss B's final zoom meeting was canceled. She's a little bummed about it but at least she gets to sleep in this morning.

Yesterday we had a couple of serious thunderstorms. The first was a "trash blower" My yard is a mess. The second had pea-sized hail. While we waited for the storms to pass we played Clue. I found humor in the fact the movie took place on a "dark and stormy night."

If you've watched Good Omens on Amazon Video or read the book you might like to know what Crowley and Aziraphale have been up to in Lockdown. And if you haven't watched the show or read the book I highly suggest both. youtu.be/quSXoj8Kob0

Eva - what a great day! Must give you great pleasure teaching a new pup. She's a super addition to the family and I love the picture.

Poor DH paid for his good day. Yesterday was spent with multiple uncomfortable naps and he's resting again. He's so social, he does much better when others are around, which is another reason a move to assisted living will enhance his recovery.
Sorting documents for shredding and recycling as well as picking items to take. We should be getting a comparison of the assisted living options tomorrow and will want to make a decision asap. We really like one floor plan and will want to hold it as late as possible since we don't know when our tag sale can happen. Great news - the repairs for selling have been minimal and reasonable!
All continues to be good.
Take care, stay safe and healthy!

Kali, how is DH today? Maybe he feels like the adventure of going out of the house is worth being tired the following day? The good news is, he isn't giving up. Hopefully he will build up so a simple drive won't wear him out.

We took a calculated risk and went to Pinson mounds yesterday. It's not the most popular of state parks since there's no lake, but has wonderful easy hiking trails. Most of it is paved. I figured I was safer there than the grocery store and the number of human encounters was far less than at Walmart.

Gypsy and Miss B made it through the 3 mile hike. Jim was surprised at how well Gypsy walks on a leash. (Fun Fact: I use to hunt, with dogs, when I was a teen. That's helpful in training Gypsy and probably why I prefer a hound.) Her instinct came out and she tracked something through the park. It was fun to watch.



She slept all the way home. Miss B jumped into the pool , it was too cold for me, when we got home. We grilled turkey dogs. I mentioned going to bed. Poor Gypsy was so tired she beat me to the bedroom lol

Eva - how cool! A positive of sheltering in place. emoticon


We had a emoticon day yesterday. DH even went out for drive thru. I'm afraid he may be paying for it today... taking a nap.
While I'd like to be settled in our new adventure, every day allows me to look @ our belongings and say yea or nay to moving them.

We didn't make a maypole but we did cut flowers for the family room.

Miss B had a boy call. emoticon she left the door open so I heard her conversation. Middle school "romance" included fessing up that you wanted to ask a girl (Miss B in this case) to homecoming but lost your nerve and talking about video games (Roblox) and game systems. It's funny, but she's on cloud 9.

Happy May Day!

After grocery shopping and school work I believe we are going to make a Maypole. How will you celebrate today?
