    Linda, I am thinking of you. When I cut the sack of potting soil the dirt smelled so good! Working in the greenhouse with a radio for NPR or music would be a pleasant way to spend some time.

    I walked to the post office today to drop off a package. It’s a usually very busy place but there were only two people there, no waiting.

    Yes, it's an excellent time for gardening tasks. I"m waiting for the weather to warm up a bit more but hope to get out on the patio and refresh the dirt around my potted plants. I had to haul all of them lose to the wall a couple of days ago because it was snowing so hard.

    Snowing hard even though the trees are all in bloom. Go figure. The snow didn't stick around long at all but it was still very cold.

    Ann, that is just the way I like to work in the greenhouse. Where I live I can use WAMC (New York) to listen to news anytime of the day or WNPR to listen to music all day. I really have a good situation.

    Agate, this very morning I woke up to maybe half an inch of snow. We have had a snowless winter so seeing this little scattering of snow is enough to wake me up!

    I have started walking around with a stretch band permanently around my neck. No matter where I am I tug it to pull my muscles apart. It feels good to stretch.

    Take care everyone.

    :) The PT was scheduled to be here between 11 and 11:30 yesterday. When she did not come by afternoon or call, I called her. At least I learned a few new exercises I can do on my own.

    She said that my next visit will be the evaluator again and that I probably won't get any more PT. I only had 2 sessions with her. She said the insurers are doing this. It is upsetting. My doctor ordered 6 weeks of twice a week PT. I am going to call the insurance guy and the doctors office.

    I still plan to go vote with a mask and gloves later today. Jeanie :)

    I swam 1/2 mile, cooked some chicken, cleaned up the kitchen, did my DH’s laundry and hung it up, slayed dragons at the Census Office, the Pharmacy, the Doc offices all via phones.
    DID at home counseling via skype and it was surprisingly effective. I was more active afte that session, on my rollator most of the day other than an enforce 45 minute “rest” nap, meditation. The meditation puts me to sleep every time.

    I know I am scared of the impact of COVID, medical care, drug shortage, crashing economy, loss of friends, real isolation. Endless not knowing. This is like hurricanes on steroids. Luckily DH has stopped going to meetings, stopped going out to restaurants, and gaming events, but so many ways to get it: grocery stores, produce Stand, dr office.

    Two docs are doing virtual medicine.

    God bless Andy!

    Sunshine, you did quite a lot. Great to hear about the tele-counseling. Can you share the meditation that puts you to sleep? The one for anxiety about how small we are compared to the universe makes me nervous. :-o

    I was in all day and the only exercise I got was the stairs.
