Howdy Friends ~
Happy Monday to you! I'm a little late working on this today...and keep getting sidetracked. But determined to post it today at some point. Lol I hope your week has started out beautifully. It's a cold rainy and gray one here today. Yuck!
Plus, dealing with other yucky things here. Aaron was diagnosed with covid last week. Ironically the day before we were supposed to get the vaccine! Geesh, how's that for timing? So we had to cancel that. We've obviously been on quarantine here. Aaron confined to only his bedroom and bathroom. Annie and I have both been tested and we were negative. We have both felt fine. She is distance learning right now for school anyways, so that has worked out. Aaron is doing well now...but still has a cough. He never lost smell or taste, but had fevers, body aches, belly stuff and had been tired. I'm actually going to do another test soon because I'm planning to get my vaccine in the very near future now that more appointments have finally been opening up in my area. It will be so nice to get rid of this darn thing, won't it?? So obviously we were homebodys this weekend. Aaron and I both wear doubled up masks when I need to interact with him (bring him food and things). I spent the weekend doing more cleaning and lysoling everything! Lol 😆 I hope you had a much more fun and exciting weekend.
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING
leftover dinner roll with a little butter & cheese, coffee
HOW I AM FEELING THIS MORNING:
Tired and low energy because that's what this weather does to me. Keeping busy with things around the house and working out helps, though.
ON MY MIND:
Wanting the world to get vaccinated so we can get rid of this darn virus! Other thoughts on my mind today are about finishing some final school things and that there's an optional business course. I think I may take it, especially since I think I may pursue private practice.
Thinking about my sweet guy who now likes calling me "girlfriend" and that he wants the all clear from the covid stuff so he can come visit again soon. 😍
Dreaming on Spring and fun things like nice weather, golfing, and planting flowers. Can't wait! 🏌️♀️ ⛳️
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE
It feels clean and I'm looking at the ingredients I pulled out on the counter to make some banana muffins with the old bananas I need to use up. Will get on that as soon as I finally finish this post.
Been reading in a few different books by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I just find him so fascinating and I love all things about space science.
ON THE TV TODAY:
Spring Baking Championship, Escape to the Chateau, New Amsterdam, Masked Singer, Greys Anatomy, This is Us, The Good Doctor, Lone Star 911, When Calls the Heart, Tournament of Champions, The Rookie, The Nevers, Mare of Easttown
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY - may need to make another batch of homemade soup for Aaron
TUESDAY - lemon pepper chicken, corn on the cob, salad
WEDNESDAY - bbq meatballs, pasta side dish, veggies
THURSDAY - pierogis, garden salad
FRIDAY - maybe pizza or order in something else?
TO RELAX THIS WEEK I WILL:
catch up on spring magazines, plan out flower pots a bit, zoom with gf's, go through my old jewelry and organize and get rid of some
FROM THE CAMERA:
had one nicer night on the weekend and went out and got some pretty pics of the bay - in the one with the dock you can see ducks swimming away from Ruby and I
I may have ordered myself and beautiful hummingbird watch (Olivia Burton of London has gorgeous nature ones!) as an early happy graduation & happy mothers day, happy surviving 2020, love myself gift 😉
The bunnies have been back so Ruby has been back to her favorite evening "program" almost daily. 😆
My latest favorite healthier treat/snack is taking a caramel rice cake, topping with a little peanut butter & honey. It tastes like cracker jack! yummy
Okay Ladies, I need to know. Is it normal for hair to become naturally wavy/curly in older age? I find if I let my hair air dry and don't really do anything with it that it dries all kind of beach wavy. It used to be straight! Is it old age hormones?? Lol 👵
I pray for an end to this virus. For peace, healing and unity in our world. I pray for anyone sick, suffering, isolated, and afraid - for their peace and comfort. Please Lord give strength to those fighting the virus on the frontlines. 🙏 And may the vaccines continue to help the numbers go down and life become more normal.
