  1. Today
  2. Going to be running around and helping a friend for a few hours a day for awhile. Still walked this morning but no short video after. Ordered shoes yesterday on eBay for more walking! Pulled a package of baked turkey out of the freezer, but looks freezer burnt so I will probably pull out a turkey breast to bake if needed.
  3. After all our work yesterday cleaning out, defrosting, and moving freezers so Sears could deliver our new one, CM called them to see when they were going to deliver it, because today was the day they gave us when they postponed our order. Oy!!! NOW it is not coming for another two weeks!!! At this rate CM is fuming and wants to cancel the order and re-order from someone else....until I pointed out that those "others" were still projecting delivery dates in June or July (and that was back in April when we were ordering). Probably even later now. So we will not so patiently wait. Cant complain overly much, does no good. When re re-loaded the 2 small ones we put the 2019 items in one and the 2020 items in the other. Easier to rotate stock that way. Oddly, the thing we had most of was....STEAK (!!) There were really good sales last summer & autumn and we bought extras. I guess we can suffer thru steak for a while, LOL. But with the meat prices now double what they were a month ago, I sure wish Sears had come thru. The kitties are confused with all the extra room in the carport (we also made a huge clear path for the delivery men to get the freezer in and positioned. We now have a little extra time to pick up the freezer locks we will be putting on both. This is Scruffy 2 weeks ago when the vet said he might have to be put down if his skin did not improve.....we decided to try medication first so delayed the euthenasia. THIS is Scruffy yesterday while he watched us do the defrosting. Hair & whiskers returning...he loved the music and watching us work, as well as the occasional tummy rubs when we took a break. And THIS is Butterscotch as we named him. He comes and hangs out in the shed when we have long days of heavy rain, and since he is polite we let him stay as long as he wants. He always leaves when the weather improves, but appreciates the shelter, the chow, and the petting (wow does he purr loudly!) He is mellow so he is welcome. There has been only one cat turned away because he picked fights with the males & tried to "have" the females. We run an orderly cat house here, ya know?
  4. CO went up about 200 cases since yesterday. Only 36 more were hospitalized tho....21 deaths [using death-from-COVID stats]. Our county is staying quite steady.... thankful for that. MtRider
  5. IT RAINED......not snow....RAIN today! Course there was the usual mountain thunderstorm too. Unplug the laptops and other fragile things. And it reallllllly POURED DOWN for a while. I was watching it pass thru on the Doppler. Green/yellow/red rain and storm speckles all over CO today. Bits of blue [snow] speckles on the highest peaks. Our expanding container garden is WELL watered. Had to cover it all cuz now we're quite chilly and could frost tonite again. We're expecting a lot of rain chances this week. We are definitely out of fire danger for a while...... lol few days at least. A dozen collard babies. Peas beginning to peek up. Lettuce in the big tin wash tub. Potatoes in 3 containers need more soil dumped in again. I'm really curious about how those will turn out!!! Got my truck going. I'd left it too long in this COVID ...just used the car. So DH climbed half into the motor to take top off the air filter and spray a bit of starter fluid down carburetor. It's a big old Ford truck. Then it started right up and I took it for a spin to get all parts moving again. LOL......It's been so long since I drove it, it was still in 4-wheel drive for snow/ice. Felt that when I started....stopped and got out to turn the hubs on the front wheels - back to 2-wheel. Dehydrating sliced mushrooms DH got yesterday. May have to run it again tomorrow...today is HUMID compared to our usual. Tomorrow we have to drop car off at mechanic for some usual stuff and a Maintenance Required light. Ugh...EARLY. I've been sleeping from 2-10 am. MtRider
  6. I can't see the pic but I've worn a buff for decades. I absolutely hate wind in my ears. I'll wear them under stocking hat in winter. Over ears in wind. Keeping hair back as needed. Try Sportsmans Guide [ NEVER buy one of THEIR products....cheap/falls apart!! Just other name brands they sell....ask me how I know] They go under neck gaiter or face mask/head cover. Or tube head cover. I'm dithering but will place order for one from somewhere. My last one is decades old and frayed badly. I don't like them squash-tight but firm to the face when I wear it that way. They have more options than I'm seeing on this page. https://www.sportsmansguide.com/productlist/clothing/personal-accessories/hats-caps?d=112&c=17&s=335 Jeepers....75 pounds? How does anyone carry them???? Ask if they are shipped in waterproof wrapping - likely cuz they can't get air or they'd begin to EXPAND! I was staying with my folks during the Broken Hip Incident when DH brought in and set up this one. So I didn't see it in the compressed form. MtRider ....DH is still seeking his unemployment checks. Got some and then.... Restaurants are opening but not his yet.
  7. I take that back. The CDC says the flu-like illness is just over 1% under baseline reporting this week and last week. They think people are not seeking medical care because of the corona virus.

I don't know why this has occurred. Corrections would be the best guess. I am focusing on these because, while "confirmed" patients may be double counted, and dead people may be presumed to have died of covid, someone who is in the hospital is under a lot of hands and eyes, and is subject to a lot of paperwork. Some pneumonia cases or weird cases might get listed as covid admissions for higher funding, but your average flu case won't--or apparently isn't, considering the unusually high numbers of flu cases and flu deaths being reported. Anyway, these are the end of the day numbers on May 27.
  9. Yesterday
  10. I've seen those 'Masks' too only without the ear holes. I almost bought a couple but shipping was so slow. Last month they said delivery between July 1-31. Shipping that slow, I know where it's coming from. Fresh off the boat. The kind I was looking at are the kind motor cycle folks wear to keep debris (bugs) out of their mouth and nose. They are just a tube of spandex type material. If I was wearing one for germs I think I'd put a layer of tissue or soft fabric inside for extra protection. Maybe. The reason I want some is because you can use them as a face mask, doo-rag, headband and other ways. Nice for when the weather is hot. Or keeping hair back while canning. They are called a Buff. YouTube "how to wear a buff" and see all of the neat ways you can wear them. 60's music...YES! T-t-t-talkin' 'bout my g-g-g-generation.
  11. I feel your pain. We've been mom-proofing our place to prep for her move this weekend to our place. Started with cleaning her bedroom, which has stuff left over from her last move. Into the third bedroom, but there's too many boxes for that to happen. DH suggested we rent a garage just down the road. It's brand new and very nice. We snapped it up and have starting moving stuff into it. Stuff from the bedrooms. Stuff from the lower level so I can move my computer hutch down there. That frees up room on the living room wall for mom's TV. My huge growing rack system has to be torn down so the computer hutch will fit in that space. Did I mention that the bathroom is torn apart because the simple changing of the toilet to a high-rise turned into tearing out some of the subfloor due to a wax ring that was failing? Might as replace the floor covering and floor moulding while we're at it. DH had already committed to helping a carpenter tear out a kitchen and bathroom of our mutual pharmacist at church this week, so he's working on our place in the evenings. Mom will be happy when she arrives. We will be exhausted.
  12. Definitely! That’s the next big project on my list. Several years ago, I cleaned and cleared the shed out, installed insulation, drywall and peg boards. Re-did all the electrical, with the over-seeing help of a licensed electrician, put in a window AC unit, work bench, and shelving, and re-shingled the roof, for DH. He used it, until... it got too cluttered... I’d put things back in their place.... but... you know... stuff gets put in there, out of the way, and before you know it, it’s spilling out the door... Then, we had the huge Palo Verde tree fall, over on to it, during an extreme wind and rain storm, which took shingles off, causing the shed to leak in a couple of places. BIG project to tackle... after I get mom’s room done. As for her coming back here, IDK. She made a passing comment, ‘never’.
  13. Oh Jeepers, you have a full plate! And I thought I was the only one being blessed with "character-building" exercises. They sure do get old, having to do things the hard way, then watching everything go wrong and having to re-do. I have enough character already, just look at all the character lines in my face! (About all I can do about it is make jokes, but it is a common refrain in this house...."oh #^%$@@%! what NEXT?!?" ) We need an emoji for a rueful laugh and elbow poke. Maybe this one? Today will be a "quiet day" as I will be going to my back doctor for a checkup. I have to travel a bit to get to the special x-ray machine that takes an entire spinal shot at once, then to his office with the 'fresh' xrays. It will probably take all day. And this was the day the freezer was supposed to arrive, so Mary will have to stay home so she can tell the delivery may where to put it. Its raining here for the 3rd day in a row and we do not know if Sears is going to deliver or some other person who sub-contracted the job from Sears. After all the work defrosting and moving and re-arranging our freezers so as to make a spot for the new one (and give the smallest one to a friend who wants a little one) they had better show up! Sears was supposed to notify us of a delivery time....NOT....or if the delivery was delayed (again).....NOT. Sigh. Oh well, we needed to defrost anyway, and were able to re-fill the freezers with older eat-first stuff on TOP for easier recovery (and our sociable cats enjoyed lounging atop the hot tub in the carport and watching us work to the 60s radio music.) Its not as hard a job as some, but time consuming, and one of those 'get around to it things' it is nice to get done. At least SOMETHING got done yesterday, lol. It was raining anyway. <---The new normal? Pretty, but effective? Dunno, I got nothin'.
  14. I wouldn't think they could kick her out if she is still paying rent. One less patient to tend to. But these days you never know what to expect. Annarchy, you need a 'she shed'.
  15. Hee hee. Tip is valid. It's a bed in a box. I should have said that I am sending it to son's house. But if they deliver it in the morning and it rains, then son may not get it inside until after 6:00pm. DIL will be there before then but it weighs nearly 75 pounds. If I can have it delivered on a Saturday or Sunday he will be there when it comes. I also have to work around the time of month because he is on call at work every 3rd. weekend and he could possibly be gone then too. If he is there to get it he can put it right in his work van and take it to my house at his leisure. I might be over thinking this. I just don't want it to get wet. $$$$ A real bed to sleep in over there...YES. Last time my inflatable mattress went poof and I ended up sleeping on the floor. Just as well because when it was aired up I kept rolling off the edge of it. Talk about a surprise awakening. Dang. Giving him power of attorney over my banking is doable. The thing is, right now the offices are all closed because of the virus. Even if I was there I couldn't go in. Maybe with an appointment or something. I'm ready for a road trip. I need to line up a painter and a landscaper. I want the ceilings painted and they are cathedral ceilings in 3-4 of the rooms. No way can I do those. Plus the walls leading up to the ceilings. The normal rooms I can do. The landscaping is very very overgrown. It would take son all summer to get rid of that mess with just the two of us working on it. A crew can knock it out in a day or two. I can replant it myself. I really just need a complete tear-out and a couple of trees trimmed back. I just remembered I need to do some spackle and sanding before painting. Sigh.
  16. Jeepers....re: the mattress delivery. Have them send it to your son's house! Then he can dump it inside at your house. They are heavy but not that big...if you got the foam, expandable one. Otherwise....this wise tip is null and void. As for your mystery check....we're getting SOME action after DH emailed to our state representative....for the Unemployment checks + $600. As for your bank....can you give son financial power of attorney and have him go there in person to see WHY you can't do off-site banking? Sounds ridiculous! Hmph! Or...is there a banking overseeing something you can contact? Might have to plan another ROAD TRIP!!!! MtRider ...won't it be nice to finally go to Indy and sleep on the wonderful bed?
  17. Yeah, Annarchy. I get the small house thing. Then we have less space cuz of the mice. There was one under the bed chewing....HOPEFULLY on the poison! Hmph. When will MIL return to AZ? Homesteader.....YIKES! that all will go smoothly....at least you'll get her settled at your place. also for when you DO have her at your house. Did you ever get your kitchen put back together? When does Operation Laundry Cart happen??? What a circus this COVID has created ....and we're not half done with all the ramifications of this time period. Our state is scrambling to make up the deficit from low sales tax, etc. Keep an eye on that aspect in all your states/counties too. I was reading about ours today. MtRider .....for LittleSister and her dh
  18. The CG, after sending him my preliminary break down of the requirements, forms, & reports, he said “never mind”. And, I still didn’t get into his state’s requirements. My brain hurts. Homesteader, I pray all goes well with the transition and she adapts well in your household and you do too. A friend of DH’s had a heart attack & deceased, because the ambulance & hospital refused to take him, because of the covid. I guess I will be busting it on my office tomorrow afternoon. A lot more paper to purge, sort, shred and throw out. My goal is to make room for the bed, that’s being delivered tomorrow. Then, whittle down my clothes to make room for her stuff. Yeah, my head hurts, trying to figure it out. And what to do with my office, art supplies, computer and desks. If I can work it right, I may leave my office in half of the room. She will have to deal with me being in there off & on to do my work. Sigh. Small house....
  19. Ours finally came in. I wasn't really expecting one, but we're thrilled. We're using it to upgrade our home to receive my handicapped mom this coming weekend. I'm so thankful DH is so handy with carpentry, plumbing and carpentry. He's a keeper.
  20. We made the decision to move my mom out of the retirement center and into our home. The county she lives in is high on demigod power juice. That's what happens with a liberal university. Most of the folks either work for the city, county, state, or feds. They don't have to worry about their businesses filing bankruptcy. I'll pack a bunch of stuff on Saturday and we'll escape when I take her to the hairdresser (first time in 10 weeks). My brother has been trying to call them but they're not answering the phone. He will let them know that mom is going on an extended visit and the monthly rental check will continue until she either returns to an opened county, or we move her out. It's all a 30-day notice, so we're prepared with a rental storage building in case the retirement center forces her out. We doubt it but one never knows with all the insanity these days. Sure they protected the old folks from Covid but they've been dying of other ailments due to doctor offices being closed. Go figure.

My numbers are from the evening and night updates, for whatever that's worth, on May 26.
  22. Even then, we have friends going 'round and 'round WITH a lawyer and a CPA for the last few months. I think they're finally getting it set up.
  23. Today, I pulled and washed carrots. Pulled most of the cabbage, one good one is 8-10” in diameter. Wow! Left 2 in the ground and gave the hens a couple that were overly munched on by aphids. They loved it. Then, cubed 2 half loves of bread from the refrigerator, that was left over from when mom was here, and sun dried it. Got an half pint of panko and a pint of plain breadcrumbs that can be made into Italian crumbs or whatever we choose. Tomorrow, I need to process the carrots. I’ll probably slice, blanch and freeze them, to be able to fry or just boil them. Got the first tomatillo, it’s as big as store bought. And, have been picking tomatoes almost daily. Not quite enough to can yet, but, there’s more coming soon. With our heat, some of the bottoms have heat burn. We water every day now. I’ve been spending a lot of time on the computer, researching the steps, forms, & reports necessary to start a non-profit business for DH’s friend. Yikes!!! I never would have even imagined how labor intensive it is. Good grief, the annual tax form is 14 pages long! Nope! I wouldn’t do it without a lawyer and a CPA.
  24. Ugh Ambergris. Not much smells worse than rotten potatoes.
  25. If your dad his the car keys, how in the world will he ever find them again. Oh boy. That could be an adventure! I get it, hide them from yourself. Hope he doesn't blame some one for stealing them. They do that a lot too. Glad he was at least in a good mood for your husband. And for your sainted mom. Bless her. Love your saying. "You're old. Success has to come quicker!!!" It sure does apply to me too. Ain't nobody got no time for waiting around no more.
  26. With us, it's less food tetris than food juggling. Sigh. When we drop the balls, we sometimes drop spectacularly. DS1 and I have both been sick a while, and I can smell bad potatoes. Sigh.
  27. So, I get my stimulus check in the mail today. I opened the envelope and the check is for $512.15. Hummm. That's an odd amount. Where is my $1,200.00 check! I just checked online and if you make $75,000.00 or less you get $1,200.00. Oh yeah, I made waaay less than that. Way less. I thought it would go into my bank account in Indiana where my S.S. check is auto deposited. So I went online to check my account over there. Anyone who knows me long enough knows I have major issues logging on to that bank. I can't. Not even with human help. So I went the normal route of having the auto teller email me a temp. password. Twice. Neither one worked. Then I had the auto teller phone me with a password. Twice. Neither one worked. So I called the 888 number to (hopefully) speak to a real person. I was on hold for nearly 20 minutes and finally hung up in exasperation. My fuse was getting shorter and shorter. Hanging up was prudent. I'm so sick of that bank. If it wasn't for the fact that I already have my S.S. going in there and my insurance and utilities coming out, I'd fire them! But we all know if I start messing with changing banks it's going to go worse for me. It always does. Nothing EVER goes smoothly for me. So, I still don't know if the $1,200.00 was ever deposited and why did I get a strange check for $512.15? I remember that $500.00 was for dependants but I don't have any. And that wouldn't be $512.15 anyway. SIgh. Hopefully I can find out some info tomorrow. Then I wanted to order a mattress on Amazon. It's 15% off. Woo hoo. I want it delivered on a certain date. They do offer that option. Guess who can't find that option now. Maybe it's only for certain items. I want a certain date so son will be there to bring it inside in case of rain. So...do I take a chance and order it now and have it arrive mid-week instead of a weekend or do I wait to order it and chance it not still being 15% off. That 15% equals almost $90.00. Nothing to sneeze at for me. I have it parked in the cart so hopefully it will retain that price until I can make a decision. My brain is not working great right now. P.S. Ambergris, it's the one you recommended a long time ago. Tuft and Needle.
