Tutu--Thanks for starting us off.

What is up at my house today is a bit of Sahara desert dust. Pretty sunrise, but I failed to snap a photo. Looked out my window and went back to bed. [Big Grin]

I watched our church service via Zoom again this morning. Church will probably open on July 12, but I don't think I will attend in person, yet.

I did a load of laundry.

Cooked a chicken breast.

Otherwise I have been talking on the phone a lot this afternoon with my mom, my brother and a college friend. Moving lips burns a lot of calories, right?

Have a great week! [hi]

Thanks TuTu for getting us going this week!

Feel better today but didn't cook our usual Sunday dinner. Mom treated us tonight with take out seafood. I had chicken....sigh....

Haven't done squat since my allergic reaction to Powerade on Friday.

Hiker lots of talking counts as exercise. Hope your parents are doing OK. When do you get to visit with them?

Hoping to exercise tomorrow! Night all!

Whew—Hot and humid today.

Did my knee exercises.

Went to Kroger to use my coupons. Groceries are going way up in price😢

Went to recycling.

AK—haven’t seen my parents, yet. Outdoor visits only at retirement home. Too hot and my mom is afraid of getting COVID-19.

Worried about my dad. He fell last week. Not sure why. Had to call Fire department to get hm up. Not sure how long he lay there before mom found him. He only weighs about 140 but neighbor across the hall was afraid to try and get him up.

Off to take garbage bin to curb.

I've been flared up from MCAS since Sunday. I really think it's from the Saharan dust. I went out briefly today and felt lousy.

So I ended up in bed for two hours this afternoon. I'm OK .. just feel worn out. I think my lungs/asthma are just unhappy.

The air outside is heavy. It looks better, but it's very humid and I think the mold count is high.

Still have not seen any pretty sunsets since the dust came in. I think it's been too cloudy. Can't tell if it's clouds or dust.

I've been binge-watching HGTV for months now. So crazy! LOL .. So many reruns of everything .. not so much on HGTV, but plenty of those too.

I've also been doing embroidery. I think I've made 4 towels now. Resting my hands today, but will start up again tonight.

Hiker .. I sure hope you get to see your parents soon ..and REALLY hope your dad is OK...

AK .. Hope you are feeling better today!!

Manna .. what's the latest project?

PS>. .. I spilled about 80 pills on the floor this morning. Great way to start your day!! Now I have germy pills. [Big Grin]

Managed all my usual exercises this morning and then took my Mom for more bloodwork. Her potassium has been high and TSH was also elevated.

Afterwards we dropped old bills, bank statements, etc. to be shredded.

Then off to the grocery store and afterwards I dropped Mom off at home and I went to Michaels to pick out a frame and matting for a signed print of the Pink House in Savannah Georgia.

Later today I watered the front and back yard.

Guys, I'm starting to get sick. Haven't felt well since Friday and today I looked at the back of my throat and I see white spots. Throat is a little sore and feel like I'm coming down with something. I hope it's not Covid19!

Hiker I'm so sorry about your Dad! I hope and pray that he'll be OK!

TuTu I hope I'm just flared up too! I sure don't feel right! Hope you found all your pills!

Off to bed....I'm so tired!

[sleepy]

UGH, AK!! I hope you aren't coming down with COVID. I don't think it usually starts like that, but who knows with this crazy illness?

AK .. I felt better after I took an extra Zyrtec this afternoon.

AK--White spots on throat could be strep throat.

Get tested for Covid and for strep.

I hope you feel better soon.

TuTu I didn't read anything about Covid starting with white spots and a sore throat either. Could be from the dust cloud. I'm taking liquid zinc and EmergentC so hope that'll help.

Doing laundry today. Nice weather, though little warm. Not too humid though, so haven't started the air conditioner yet.

Want to work at finishing up 3 flannel night gowns that got laid aside while the mask rush was on.

After the sun goes behind the barn & shades the flowerbed, I'd like to get some more weeds pulled.
Should get the weeds pulled in the strawberry patch too.

I did my balance exercises and went for a walk.

Cooler here today. Cloudy but no rain and we really need the rain.

I went to the hardware store to get a wand for the hose. Old one broke.

Noticed no white man in the store was wearing a mask. Men of color were wearing masks and all the women. Required in this state. Just an interesting observation.

Made muffins.

Did all my usual workout routines but not as energetically. Drove my Mom to get her some lunch and to the bank.

Spent the evening at Josh's and watched 2 scary and 1 action movie. We also picked up our usual drive thru Mexican food.

Feeling so so today.

Manna you seem very busy! It's in the 90's down here already and is making outdoor work tough.

Hiker we have the same thing happening here. Masked folks are predominately African American. The exception is the military. Most are masked on post and off regardless of race.

Night all!

The statistics are that COVID is hitting African-Americans harder than everyone else.

I got up early and watered. So dry here and the next two weeks are expected to be int the 90’s with little chance of rain.

Went grocery shopping to nearby store fork produce. I thought it might be wise to go today instead of waiting until closer to the Fourth of July. But their produce truck comes in tonight so I lost out on the $.99 strawberries.

Supervised the guys putting in my new landscaping. It looks nice but seems a little sparse until the plants spread and bloom. In the front I have two Bobo hydrangeas, some firewitch dianthus, little lemon drop goldenrod, and blue aster along with some magic carpet spirea.

The old vegetable garden is now blueberries and strawberries although they won’t produce this year.

I did my knee exercises.

I will have to go back outside one more time tonight and water the new plantings. Will wait until it cools off. I know my water bills going to go way up but new landscaping is worth it.

Did all my usual workout routines but not as aggressively. Still feeling kinda out of sorts.

Mom volunteered me to help her BFF with burglar alarm issues and phone issues. It was an easy fix for both. Just had to use the user's manual for the phone to fix the date and time and to add the answering machine's prerecorded message. The alarm system needs a battery for the motion detector. Tech support made everything a breeze.

Made a Korean dish for dinner that I've never made before. It had sweet potato noodles that were kinda clear and super easy to make. Used some meat from pork neck bones, grated carrot, chopped cucumber, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. So we had a scrumptious gluten free dinner. Yay!

Now I'm just chilling listening to some groovy music on our state's public broadcasting channel. All original singer songwriters and very out of the main stream. Loving it!

Hi there TuTu! I heard the same thing.

Hiker your new landscaping sounds amazing! Envy the strawberry and blueberry garden. I'm going to have to google some of the plants that you mentioned. I'm familiar with a couple of them. I'm kinda leaning towards digging out a water garden to help with the new gutter downspout water issue. I have no idea how to do it but am looking forward to the challenge and what to plant into one.

See you all tomorrow!

[hi]

Googled those perennials Hiker and they're gorgeous! I see they can even grow down here! I have a regular long suffering hydrangea and love the BoBo!
