Morning

Was relieved to find that Friday meeting is going to be a regular monthly thing every 2nd Friday through the rest of the year.  So it's very unlikely it has anything to do with layoffs.  No longer worrying about it

The rest of yesterday went pretty good, work was productive but not too crazy.  Got the grocery shopping and some more crafting done

Today will exercise and do more crafting after work

Weather was nice yesterday but there are frost warnings for Friday night

Good afternoon

J22, enjoy the days off.

My unit is open. Not much going on.  One ventilated Covid patient but the bigger hospital has 27, but plenty of capacity.  Rumor has it our buyout fell through. 

Have a great day

Dianah: Glad you all can jam! 

Joe: Good you found out and are not worried.

Tweety: Glad work is OK.

The driver's side windshield broke when I moved my car yesterday. I plan to drive through for an oil change and buy new wipers.

3 PM Sunny with cold wind. Neighbor is using our carport as shade and dry area to work on his truck. Nannie opined that he is "using" us. Told her that the fellow has mowed our lawn 4 times for NO pay, and WE offered him the spot so he didn't have to sweat to death or get drenched while fixing the truck. Ever hear of the Golden Rule, Nannie? Her version is the Gilded Rude. 

Had to keep today's newspaper from Nannie today; big, multiple reports and stories about the nsg homes hereabouts....not only about COVID, but also really BAD inspections...black mildew in the showers, piss-drenched, unchanged patients, an unshaven man with dried yellow drainage crusting on his eyes, poop-dirty washcloths on a bathroom floor. One place forbid its employees to wear face masks so as to avoid scaring the patients, also there were aides going room to room without changing gloves....etc. Horrendous!

Doing laundry. Nannie is in her room doing God only knows what. Probably rearranging and hiding stuff. Hubby is out on the front porch. Ozzie is asleep on his end of the sofa: he's had his sweater off for the past couple of days, but sat in front of me shivering:  " hint-hint-hint !!! "  So, now he is warm and content.

It's the beginning of Sundowner's Time, Oh joy!

herring, did the windshield crack, or the windshield wiper break?  Seems if the windshield cracked, you'd need more than an oil change and some new wipers...  Just sayin' .. 😄 😄

Tweety, it sounds like your area mirrors others.  Some are sick, yes, but not the great numbers predicted.  I'm not complaining!  I just hope it dies down and we don't see a second (same or worse) wave. 

94 degrees when I left work, with some high thin clouds and a breeze.  I left work,  got ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the way to my car, then realized I didn't have my phone.  I walked all the way back in and took the elevator to the office and --- sure enough, there it was on my desk.   That was a relief but I was still irritated at myself. 

No Stars, hope Nannie isn't too bad tonight.  AND I hope she goes to bed early!  So good of you to pay attention to Ozzie and put his sweater on him, poor chilly boy!

Not much else going on here.

Did y'all see the mask meme?  "Masks are the new bra.   They aren't comfortable, you only wear them in public, people WILL notice when you DON'T wear one, and now they come in every color, pattern, and style!"

Have a good evening!

Dianah, that is great that you are able to jam now. It won't be quite the same as in person, but hopefully it will keep your calluses intact. 

NSIME, that is just mean on Nannie's part. Maybe you can tell her that he will mail a check at the end of the month for leasing space, along with the mowing bill. Around here, lawn care companies make good money for mowing. I think my dd used to pay $50 a week for their yard, and it wasn't very big. If yours is big enough to need a rider I bet it would easily cost $100 a week. 

I spoke with a new counselor today on the phone. I contacted her back in February and she just now had an opening. I think that this may be the one that I can actually work with. We have an online video visit scheduled for next week. Fingers crossed. Otherwise I spent the day in the yard, mowing, more hanging basket planting, and just plain weed pulling. I am going to be sore tomorrow! 

Joe, good news about the reason for your meetings. Will they be in person or remote? 

Tweety, I hope your routine at work normalizes. We continue to see 1 or 2 COVID cases in hospital here. There have been a few deaths, but mainly in care facilities that allowed the patients to pass there. There are a few community cases as well. 

Herring, do windshields tend to break more in hot weather? Just curious. I need to run our pickup in for an oil change and wipers too. 

Hullo everyone else, hope your evenings are quiet and calm.

Dianah and nursej22: It was just the wiper that broke. I now have new ones.

S'posta be partly sunny today, but instead it is overcast and extremely windy. When the gusts happen, Nannie is convinced a tree limb is going to come down, then when the wind dies down momentarily, she says, "Well, I guess the wind has quit now." Then it blows up again and she worries again.

She went into the bathroom to peek out the window, or more likely to eavesdrop, as the window is right next to the front porch where hubby was talking on the phone. The guy from across the street came over and was mowing the front yard, and I guess Nannie saw some dust kick up, because she decided she saw a fire out in the front yard. So up the stairs she goes, socks on, but no slippers or shoes. Hubby got up to come in at the very moment she reached the front door and started to open it. She held the door open about ten inches and said, "What are you doing, playing with matches?" He said, "No, I'm trying to come in the house, would you please back up and open the door?" As she was turning, she said "You're always playing with something..." He said, "Momma, just open the door, please." ....and she slipped and slid in her stocking feet on the parquet floor, nearly fell. But we stopped her from going over, and she yelled "Quit manhandling me!!"  Hubby said, "Do you want us to let you fall?" ..."Oh, I wasn't falling. You're crazy." and "You better go see if that fire has got to the back yard yet."  Hubby responded, "There is no fire." Her reply was "Well, I SAW IT! I KNOW WHAT I SAW!" 

Later downstairs, she accused Ozzie of chewing on her slippers and her feet. That dog has never been a chewer, even as a puppy! She said she guessed it was 'the other dog'. [The one we don't have?] Boy oh brother, she is in another one of her moods. YECH! I told hubby that maybe we should start singing and tap-dancing to entertain her.

Ozzie won't even cooperate when she makes mouth clicks at him and says, "Come see me! Come up and sit with me!" That'll be the day when he jumps up in her lap or goes over to her when she wants him to. He only barely tolerates her. The recliner she sits in used to be at our house, and the minute she gets out of it, he gets up and lays down in it; he KNOWS it was/is really his chair. When she wants him to move or get down from the chair, and she moves toward him, he growls and barks at her. But, if I want him to move or get down, all I have to say is "Excuse me, Ozzie."  and he moves.

If I was a dog, I'd be very tempted to bite her, HARD! So, you probably can tell that *I* am 'in a mood', too. I think a cup of hot coffee and a Xanax go well together. It is almost 4 PM, after all. 

I'll stop blabbering and go back to my crossword puzzles; they keep me from getting into verbal trouble by mouthing back off at her. Keep yer eyes on the puzzle and yer pen on the page, Stars.
