    Morning Tweety Work was kinda crazy, had to help out some others with getting calls made before the end of the month. But it was a good day in general Went for a walk and exercised. Also decided to start out on a new sewing project, started cutting out patterns. Had to order some new scissors as my current ones aren't up to the task Anxiety flared up this morning for some reason, hoping it will settle down with a more normal work day Grocery shopping tonight. Warmer days ahead, by next week it could be nearly 70

    Morning Weird dreams last night. Not bad, just vivid Had church via Zoom yesterday, was nice even if it was virtual. Stopped at the coffee shop and stopped at a forest preserve in spite of it being quite windy and drizzling a bit. In spite of the weather there were other people there Was going to order from Claim Jumper but found out they're closed now. Got something from Jimmy John's and checked the neighborhood to see which of the restaurants dad and I usually go to are open. Did find one of the family restaurants and our favorite Mexican restaurant are still open for limited hours Did some cooking and exercise. Finished the cross stitch, will post a picture here if it works. Rest of the day was pretty quiet Today back to work, might be getting additional work from the people who were laid off Weather should be getting a bit warmer again, though by the end of the week it may be rainy again Can't seem to upload the picture, keep getting an error message, so I'm thinking it's not going to show up

    Morning Tweety glad the anxiety wasn't too bad today Our weather didn't turn out to be bad at all. The worst of it was well to our west and south Stopped at the coffeehouse yesterday, also at a local restaurant for take out. Disappointed that one favorite restaurant is currently closed, and another one apparently is too Finally found paper towels at the grocery store. Went for a walk in one of the forest preserves, more people there than usual but still able to distance quite a bit. Did some preparation for cooking today Today we have a church service via Zoom. Gonna get some more coffee before then. Today will do the cooking and finish the embroidery project. Might also get outside again too

    Morning Work was fine, until some stuff from the laid off employees came up and had to be done quickly. The rest of the day was a mad dash, but it got done Rest of the day was fairly ordinary. Went for a walk, exercised, worked on embroidery J decided to cancel his trip to CA, he was fortunate to get a full refund of his airfare. I will be cancelling my Madison trip shortly J and I won't be getting together tonight most likely. I suspect for now we'll only meet on weekends Weather is warmer today and the next few days, rain expected as well

    Morning A generally quiet day at work. The work from the people who were laid off hasn't yet been redistributed Went out for a walk, just so I could get outside. Also did my usual exercise and embroidery Today should be fairly quiet too Temps will be in the 40s, later rising to the 50s and 60s. Rain is expected later in the week Still have not decided if I will cancel my trip to Madison next month, but probably will. Will still take the time off. J is still deciding whether or not to go to CA next month

    Morning Quieter day yesterday. Had a church service via Zoom, which seemed to work pretty well. Went to the arboretum but it was not only cold but quite crowded as well. Guess people have few other places to go. Got take out from our favorite restaurant, glad they're still open. Exercised and cooked and did embroidery Hoping work won't be too crazy, though expecting to get additional work from those who were laid off. Cold with snow yesterday, today should be warmer, same all week with temps in the 40s and 50s, no more snow expected

    Morning Bit of a surprise at work....found out some of my coworkers got laid off. Not related to coronavirus. Apparently we've had fewer patients, who are less sick, than expected, so when our group was established we were overstaffed. Glad I'm still there and that no more layoffs planned, although it certainly made it hard to pay attention to work for the rest of the day Went out for a walk afterwards and relaxed the rest of the day. Stopped at the local bakery and bookstore as all nonessential businesses will be closed after today Today the environmental group is meeting virtually. Skipping lunch with dad, given his age he wants to stay close to home until things settle down. Meeting J, he wants to stoop at some home improvement and craft stores before they close Colder day today, will be in the 30s

    Morning Fairly ordinary day at work. Another meeting, only somewhat helpful. Worked on embroidery and went grocery shopping. Was glad that Trader Joes was limiting how much people could buy at once, and people were calm and maintaining distance. Had 2 shopping lists, depending upon what was available J was a little sad, his best friend's mom is in hospice, he's know her for 50 years and she's 91. Hoping he can get the chance at some point to see her or talk to her before the end Not much planned for today, except for exercise and embroidery Going to be in the 60s, could be rainy and stormy. Cooler after today
  10. Morning Fairly quiet day at work. Thankfully I got a list of new people to outreach, otherwise it would have been a very quiet week Decided to fast yesterday after going seriously off diet for 2 days. Went pretty good, wasn't too tired or too hungry. My body seems more adaptable lately Stayed home with the exception of a brief trip to Joann Fabrics J decided to replace his old recliner and give it to me to replace my very old recliner. Should arrive today Should be a pretty ordinary day for me, not planning to go out

    Morning Tweety and Ted Productive day at work. J had his new recliner delivered and had his old one delivered to me. It arrived earlier than expected, before work was over. Thankfully I wasn't busy with anything at the time Went to Joann Fabrics to pick up some supplies for another project. Wanted to get there before they closed. Exercised and rested the rest of the day J and I aren't getting together tonight, we're going to do something Friday, once we figure out what that is Going to be a rainy day today and tomorrow. Temps are pretty variable the next few days

    That is a hard decision but it was the right thing to do

    Morning Last church service for a while yesterday. Which is a shame, next Sunday a candidate for organist and choir director was supposed to perform Went with J to our favorite restaurant, no brunch buffet due to health concerns. Afterwards we went to some furniture stores as J needs a new recliner Rest of the day was cooking and exercise After today restaurants and bars will be closed except for take out. That will complicate things for J and I, not sure yet how we'll adapt to that The work week at least should be fairly normal, if a bit slow unless a bunch of new work comes Has been colder, but should be warmer thr rest of the week, with some rain and storms

    Love the pictures Tweety

    Monday March 16 2020

    That's what I'm thinking, although the distance would mean it would be most practical to do only on the weekends

    Morning Tweety and Ted. Glad I work at home, reduces the risk of coronavirus Had strange dreams last night, not sure why, maybe I was awake more than I realized? Work was good. Today will be less productive as I have 3 meetings Exercised and ran errands. Prepared some thread for embroidery...they want you to wash in soap and water and dry before using, otherwise the color can run Meeting J for dinner tonight, for the first time in a while. Or so I hope...he has to wait for someone to come and repair his internet connection. Hopefully they'll be done before he has to leave

    Tuesday, March 10th, 2020 - Good Morning!

    Needlepoint uses a different fabric, it's more like a net. And it uses thicker thread. Both methods use several varieties of stitches

    Morning Was a little disappointed that we had to cancel brunch yesterday, J ate something that upset his stomach. I do wish he'd be more careful about his diet Was able to get laundry done after I got back from church. Got out for a walk as it was quite warm outside. Choir did well despite half the members being out and having no altos Hoping for a fairly quiet week at work Rainy day today. Will be between the 40s and the 50s over the next week, with more rain but no snow expected

    Tweety glad that patient is discharged Dianah hope you get some sleep tonight Feeling a bit tired, went to bed at a good time but my body had gotten used to waking up while there was some light out. Choir and church and meeting J for brunch today Yesterday was productive, with cooking and exercise and embroidery done. Stopped at the arboretum gift shop to find something to spend some of the bonus on Will be quite warm today, up to 60, will try and get outside if possible

    Tweety hope that awful patient is discharged soon Ted hope you and Amy don't end up in quarantine BC hope the cats are able to settle their differences. Or at least tolerate each other Work was fine yesterday, in spite of being sent yet more spreadsheets of cases to look into. Thankfully we've been told only another 2 or 3 months of weekly spreadsheets, then everything should be settling down a bit J had though his friend from CA was coming on Sat and leaving on Sun. Turns out he came in Fri and is leaving today. So we couldn't meet last night but will on Sunday instead Meeting dad for lunch today, also going to do some cooking and exercise and stop at the credit union Weather is back to being nice, in the 50s today up to 60 tomorrow

    Morning Glad the work week is drawing to a close.

    Tweety hope they can find some nurses or techs for you Ted I had something similar a few days ago, symptoms resolved in a day or two Work was busier than expected....coworker out out bereavement leave so I'm making some calls for her. Still wasn't too bad work wise. Today should be easier J is having some cold symptoms and strained his back taking his old TV out with the garbage, so we didnt meet for dinner last night Got the grocery shopping done, did some exercise and worked on embroidery some more Temps have been fairly warm, up to the 50s, and should be through the week Have kept to my Lenten practice and have focused on reading spiritual books. Have been trying to find ones that aren't too long or tedious

    Morning Tweety. Have never tried making ketchup Work was good. Got my review, which was good as expected. Found out the bonus will be larger than expected, which is better Exercised and got my hair cut last night. Tried some more embroidery but struggled with this part of the design. Watched some YouTube videos and got some good ideas on how to do it better Weighed myself for the first time in nearly a month, was glad I was only up 1 pound. My weight has been pretty stable these last few months Should be a pretty quiet day at work. Have dinner with J tonight
