  1. Stores here are also starting the one way on the isles. It is a great idea. But there will still be people that won't follow the rules. I keep praying for this to be over. But I think we have a long way to go. I am not counting on hot summers to get rid of this. It might slow it down a bit but that is about all.
  2. Haven't done a lot today. Watched a movie earlier with DH. To windy and wet to do anything outside. Chatted with granddaughter3 that works at hosp. She has been doing double shifts and college on line now. She's tired but doing well. And there may be a wedding in the near future as she and her boyfriend may decide to get married at some point when this mess is over. Kappydell , hoping your swollen ankles start going down and staying down soon. And very glad there is no heart issues. Still can't get hold of any of our doctors, so going to call heart doctor at home this evening. They must have closed the offices down or something is wrong with the phone lines. I know my internet has been going crazy these past couple of days. To many people on it at certain times of day I think. School children having to do on line schooling and are on morning and afternoon I think. Right now it slows down and then speeds up again. Made biscuits this morning with breakfast and then went to market to pay for package I had sent to granddaughter2 in Washington state. It was really busy and no one keeping their distance. DH's cousin was there and having a fit customers not keeping their distance, they would not lesson to him. Just shopping like nothing was happening. The employees were all wearing mask and gloves and wiping everything down. Guess you just can't make the customers keep their distance from each other. And because the store is small, he may start limiting them to 5 coming in at a time. That would be the only way to control it.
  3. This is good to know about the mask. I have everything baking in the sun right now. All the mail I got today is out there. Had to set a rock on each piece to keep it all from blowing away. Still can't get the greenhouse set up where I want because of the higher winds today. Hopefully tomorrow we can move it from garage and get it secured outside.
  4. Thanks for the reminder MtRider. The scammers will be out in full force. Ours will be enough to pay the real estate taxes for a full year. Since they are sending the money, I figure that would be the best thing to use it for. Might even have a couple hundred left over after it is paid. Due in June. So plenty of time for it to get here and I won't have to worry about it come December.
  5. Midnightmom, We have Medicare and they don't offer ask a Nurse. And if Medicare doesn't pay then our secondary won't either. I am thinking of calling his heart doctor at home. I don't like doing that, but seems to be my only option at this point. Euphrasyne, I have been thinking about having him switched to a different medication but then this coronavirus hit. DH has been dragging all day. He was up at 4:30 and wide awake. But has been really tired today. He may have over done it yesterday. He won't go walking or do any other exercise. So when he does exert himself. He pays for it. Just another thing I will be working on or he will find himself in phy therapy. And not for speech therapy to strengthening of his throat muscles. Today I did some cleaning around the house and planted some herbs. They are coming Sat. morning to remove the 6 roots from flowerbeds in front of house. I have been trying to get rid of those bushes for the past 4 years. They got way to big and almost partway up windows. DH would not let me take them out. Well, now that he has me taking care of yard stuff, they are out of here. Biggest mosquito hangout ever. Now you can see the front of the house. Don't have to worry about someone hiding behind those bushes anymore either. Once those are out, I can clean the beds up and have more room for garden. I will have marigolds and some other type of flowers along the edge to draw pollinator bees. Going to do that around the bigger garden in back yard as well.
  6. WE2 that is how I do mine and it works great.
  7. Midnightmom. Yes he is on the extended release, but still has the issue with it. Got his levels back down after given him some insulin yesterday. This morning it was 68. Much better than the 208 yesterday morning. He doesn't take insulin but I take it at night if needed. Mine goes up overnight but stays normal during day. Mine is just wearied how it does. Going to be talking with his doctor about it, as soon as I can get hold of him. I am thinking they have shut the office down as I cannot get a return call right now. Same with his heart doctor. No return calls.
  8. We need to keep all those on the front lines in our prayers. So far my granddaughter's DH has the coronavirus. He is a corpsman for Naval hosp. My other granddaughter that still lives at home with her parents is a scribe and follows the emergency room doctors around keeping the records of each patient. And even my Lawn care man has it as he is a firefighter also. Lot's of prayers going out to our health care workers, firefighter's and policemen that are on the front lines dealing with this everyday.
  9. Patriot nurse is good. I have seen this video and is a good one. I think my neighbor across from my driveway has lost it already. On cell phone as loud as he can be so everyone can hear him. He was talking to his mother and was so loud. We were outside working on garden and let's see, mom has all the time in the world to make mask, he hasn't washed his shirts in 6 weeks and yes he told her he was scratching his As**. Really, we didn't need to here that. There was a lot more but that was a lot of the screaming going on. Not sure but think he lost his job as well. He didn't make sense and we moved further away to keep from hearing him. Oh yes, he plans on getting a dog and that the neighbors won't like it. Whatever that means.
  10. Told granddaughter about it and he won't do it. But he may be going into pneumonia now. So she is going to try to work on him trying the hydrotherapy again. Maybe this time he will do it. She went to school for physical therapy. But changed over to training police dogs and such. She was familiar with it.
  11. Jeepers. Water in basement is not good. I wish I had a basement, but not one that leaks water into it. Worked on garden stuff all day. Got the greenhouse put together. And DH found a spot he wants to put it. So tomorrow we will move it there and tie it down. Bad storm this evening and heavy rain. We just finished what we were doing 5 minutes before the bottom fell out. Someone is coming tomorrow to give me a price on removing the 6 roots from the front flower beds. Then I can get that ready for herbs and such.. Will line the front part with flowers. I already have rosemary planted on one side from last year and it is doing great. On the other side will be some sweet potatoes and white potatoes. It is a very long deep area, so can do half and half of each with some separation in-between them.
  12. We are now having a bad storm. heavy rain, lighting, thunder. Fun!! We just finished up getting things put away 5 minutes before it hit. Today I got the greenhouse put together, but only one. China instructions. the usual basic look at the pretty picture and you figure it out. Took awhile but I got it together. Then DH came out to help me go though seeds for planting. We now have several things planted in pots to be put in greenhouse hopefully tomorrow morning. We have to tie the greenhouse down but have figured out where to put it now. Then I can move the seeds to the greenhouse and get them out of garage. Still need to get the handle attached to tiller. That will be DH's job with my help. If he does better tomorrow than today. His knee kept giving out on him today. So balance was bad all day. But he did what he could do. So I'm happy with that. We bought a tiller that I can run. It is electric and not used to the electric stuff, but I can't pull the rope to start a gas one and nether can he. We just don't have that kind of strength any longer. Though the push lawnmower that we are keeping is battery operated and gas. Battery is for the key start. Makes it so nice. But we haven't used it in 2 years. need to plug up and charge the battery. We have someone cutting our grass now but still nice to have that backup. Like now as our Lawn guy has Coronavirus. He is a firefighter and several have come down with it. that he and his fellow workers get through this mess. I have done no work in house today, so tomorrow will be catchup day as well as getting the greenhouse situated and the seeds we just planted in there. Got to hook the well pump back up also. Seems it is never ending around here. Homesteader I love your seedlings. Our seeds just got planted today. So got a couple of weeks before we see results coming up.
  13. thank you Daylily, I am watching it now.
  14. Daylily, I am looking for the post on Hydrotherapy but haven't found any. Guess I need to look deeper.
  15. Happy Anniversary, Euphrasyne. We have finished with the garden centers now I hope. Went through the seeds today to figure out what we have and where to plant what. Tomorrow we are going to get the tiller put together. We ordered it on line but need to put the handle together and attach it to the main part of the tiller. Checked my stash of canning jars and I am now good on those. Found 2 cases of pint jars in the loft of the shed. Don't know how they got up there but will pull those down soon. Wanted to get the top soil that DH bought put down to raise the garden up a bit but DH wasn't feeling like doing much today so it can wait a bit longer. Though now we are going to have rain maybe tonight and tomorrow. But still to early to plant yet anyway. But do want to get the gardens cleaned out more and have them ready.
