Good Morning! 

Recently woke up. Currently drinking First Coffee. Looking outside the window, it looks to be another lovely day today. Sunshine, cool (but not too cold) breeze, flowers blooming.

Had a nice day off from work, yesterday. Basically, relaxed with Amy. Well, we did go for our 3-mile (1 mile more than usual) power-walk. But exercise helps one to relax (so they tell me!  😄 ) Our outdoor furniture is out, so we spent a good portion of the day outside. Ate dinner outside on our front porch. Watched birds and squirrels hanging out on our front lawn. Nice day!

Ended up going to work Wednesday night. It was relatively "Q". Actually had TWO patients in our teeny-tiny ICU. I had them both while the 2nd ICU RN floated either to the ER or to the Med/Surg floor. (We take turns floating. Next time, it'll be my turn. . . . Again.)

Working tonight. Off Saturday night. Working both Sunday & Monday nights, which is welcomed because of holiday-pay (for the Memorial Holiday).

The other day, I ordered a flying drone with camera. It comes by UPS today! I'm excited! It'll add an option to use for my modest video productions. Can't wait to learn how to fly this thing. I went with the next model up meaning that it has sensors to help avoid crashing into trees. It also has the nicer 4K video-recording capabilities. Yes!

Hope all is well with everyone! Peace, folks! 🙂

Morning Ted

Decent day at work yesterday.  Ran an errand, went for a walk, did some crafting, and had a Zoom meeting with one of the political groups

Glad today is Friday.  Work should be fairly slow

Starting at the end of the month many more businesses here will open up, will finally be able to get a haircut.  Restaurants will open their outdoor seating, meaning J and I might be able to start meeting for dinner again

Will be quite warm this weekend, up into the 80s.  Rain expected through Monday but mostly in the afternoon

Good Early Afternoon...

The sun is hot, the shade is cool; we are supposed to get up close to 80 today, and the on-line forecast shows a drawing of rain coming out of clouds, but the entire sky is BLUE.

I still have stuff I need to do in my room, but who knows if I'll get to it? So far, as usual, when I tell y'all what my plans for the day are, they don't come about that way. 

Right now I am on the back patio, hubby put out the hummingbird feeder yesterday... it is hanging behind my head by about 1 & 1/2 feet, and I hear the hummers coming in to sip. As long as my head stays relatively still (on the OUTSIDE that is!) they come in to feed.

I'll go upstairs (I hope) in a few minutes (I hope) and try to start in (I hope) on my tasks and chores (I hope).

See yez after a while.

G'day

Enjoy the drone Ted

Didn't post yesterday because nothing but the work thing happened.  Same thing today.

Going to be hot and humid today. 

Have a great day.

I had a morning of husband talking with friends about constipation and then his telling me about it. Our local market has high fiber bread for the first time in weeks. I think I'll but several loaves to put on their porches. I think they will laugh and joke about that.

Overcast and cool here, but no rain. I pulled 4 large buckets of weeds from around my blueberry bushes, but I think there is at least another 4 buckets to go. Those darn buttercups grow fast. The gutter replacement people arrived about noon. It's actually a man and woman couple to remove the old gutters (or do you call them eavestroughs ?) and down spouts and install the new. Seems like a lot of work for 2 to get done in one afternoon. I finally got the vacuuming and dusting done and there is some laundry to fold. But I need a break! Dh thought he was going to work 1/2 day but its quarter to 4 and he has not appeared. 

I have tried to fly a drone and I just don't seem to have the hand/eye coordination to keep from flying it in to the ground, 😂.  Enjoy, Ted. 

I see from work email that there are some new positives in our county. I hope this doesn't keep us from opening up a little on June 1. 2 were from a small cluster at a food processing plant that was detected last week, one was a nurse, unfortunately . Hopefully all recover quickly. 

I too would like a haircut. I have come to think that my recent headaches are from thick hair that is too long to pull into a bun on top of my head. I am trying the Laura Ingalls Wilder look today and it seems to help. 

Take care all.
