Did yoga this morning, you would have thought it would have helped. Okay perhaps I would have lost my cool sooner without the yoga. Now that I have subdued my inner child by soothing myself with food, I should take a few deep breaths and do a me... Read more

Got exercise in again, before my brain realized what I was doing. Yes, I do know that it is good for me. Checked my blood sugar. Had coffee. Middle son woke me at 3 am. Coffee didn't work so I took a brief nap this morning. This Stay Home... Read more
Fast and Furious
Tuesday, April 14, 2020      10 comments

Got to enjoy some sun while I was down by the river, although I forgot to take some pictures. It was much higher and swifter than usual due to all the rain yesterday. White water sprung up from where the rocks were. I fondly remember playing on... Read more

Got to Skype with the Grands for Easter and wish the now eight year old a Happy Birthday. She had a car parade drive by and it thrilled her. The next time her birthday will fall on Easter she will be 81 in 2093. I will not be around to see that... Read more

Full Moon Delay?
Thursday, April 09, 2020      5 comments

Was up late last night and watch Bernie on the Late Show and fell asleep after midnight. Charming middle son awoke me before 3 am and has been up ever since. I do not think he had a bad dream, he seems fine (except for timing.) Told him to go ba... Read more

After being basically at home since March 8th, I decided it was time to get out. Alright, yes we did meet with Precious First Born and the Grands to exchange birthday gifts last Thursday. But this was to be a picnic at the shore. Our first locat... Read more
Masks

Weekly shopping trip presented no problems getting bread and looks like some paper goods are back on the shelves. Yeah! Wore the mask but had problems breathing through it. When no one was around I had to lift it to get more air for a few mom... Read more
