Morning

Was a good day at work yesterday.  Have a 3 day weekend coming up so I'm going to do relatively little today, or at least as little as I can

Stopped at the bakery and exercised and worked on embroidery.  Talked to dad, who is doing well.  J reported the pain has decreased although he still has to be careful about what he eats, to avoid irritating the implant site

After work today will get my usual takeout for tomorrow, will watch some Yes Minister and work on some more embroidery 

Could be up to 94 today, one of the hottest days of the year so far.  The next few days will be cooler, although with a chance of rain.  Thankfully the rain should hold off until Sat afternoon

Good late morning. The weather here is warm, but hazy, rain is expected for tomorrow. I really should cut the grass today, perhaps after my facial appointment in an hour. I bought a package of facial treatments in February, and have only had 1. I had an appointment with my PCP yesterday, and told her about my discussion with a health department doc who happens to be married to a radiologist. HD doc and radiologist kindly looked at the reports of my conflicting ultrasounds, and and recommended a CT angiogram. So that is now ordered and scheduled for next Friday. And I had a video appointment with counselor in the afternoon that got a little intense, but I think I am getting her to understand that my issues are deeper than what she originally thought. 

Gosh Tweety, I feel so bad about what you are having to endure with COVID-19. I keep expecting our area to have an explosion in cases. People who have been asked to quarantine are refusing, claiming the need to build herd immunity. I was at the grocery store yesterday and mask-wearing was about 50%. Idiots. 

Amo, my dh is really missing sports. I like to watch baseball in person, but I get a little bored with TV. A local station is re-airing old games from when the Mariners were good and we enjoy those. 

I tried 2 new recipes last night from a Mediterranean diet cookbook. I liked the one with garbanzo beans, cherry tomatoes and pasta. I made a salmon dish for dh, but he said it was just okay. Dh will not be home until late, so I think I will have popcorn for dinner.

Good afternoon

Joe hope you enjoy the fir day weekend.

J22 please eat a balanced dinner.  Being alone is no excuse.  You're worth cooking for.

Another record high number of covid cases.  The first time we hit 3000 for the state.  My zip code had the most cases in the area.  Given this information I'm backing up a bit and canceled some dinner plans and probably won't go to the gym or yoga Our inpatient covid case has tripled and the ER has 13 of them since the Covid unit is full.  We closed the backup unit because it wasn't needed and now there are negative patients there.  We're in our Summertime slow period and hired some agency staff so so far so good.

Off for a four day weekend.

Happy Junteenth Joe, Tweety, and nursej22!

I always thought it was a Texas holiday. We celebrated with tamale pie, It is like Shepard's Pie with chili spices, ground beef, corn and other veggies chopped to the size of corn kernels, and baked with masa topping. 

We sang "The Eyes of Texas" (no longer politically correct). Every time someone said the word "Texas" Mom would stand up ans say, "STAND UP WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT TEXAS! Lots if silly fun.
