There are some positives in this time of isolation. I have gotten to know a sweet and generous man who plies me with tomatoes and barbecue and another very nice man and his wife. It seems that we have kind of drawn together in this horrid year and help each other more.
I am leaving facebook after being hacked numerous times. It is simply not worth the trouble. We have each other on this blog site and no one is trying to bother us. I feel that I will miss family news but my sister and I talk at least once a week.
I had an accident and I don't know if I tripped over my own feet or the garden hose but I tore a hole in my chin and my collar bone and I am black and blue. It was a miracle that no bones were broken and that my blood thinner did not cause a brain bleed. Little Jose, who is often denigrated as a lap dog was watching and alerted Ted to come out and help me. Now my mask can serve two purposes...disguising the injury and being considerate of others.
Jose got his shots yesterday and I must say the vet is a lot more careful than the doctors. You have to call them, tell them where you are parked and they come and get your dog and your credit card. and return the dog after it is treated. Jose hates them and their grooming parlor and always tries to get me to save him.
For a more creative distraction, I ordered paint supplies and we are going to try and get back in the groove. We have not painted in so long that we have lost what little skill we have but are
trying to get back in the groove . I padded a wheel chair for Ted because it is impossible for him to stand up for any length of time. The best advice my Dr. ever gave me was "whatever you do, do not stop moving." So I do. And it hurts but it keeps me mobile and without a cane or a crutch or a walker. She says that I am her healthiest ninety year old in her practice.
It seems that the heat is killing and the bugs are worse this year. we have been cursed with noseeums.
I am in dire need of a hair stylist and need a make over. Vanity is not entirely dead yet.
Love to all of you...
