It's not raining right now ... hope I didn't jinx it! And that makes it a little easier - at least we can take a walk outside. We've yet to come across anybody else out there. DH just came back from a walk and brought me this picture just in time to share it with you!! Thanks Honey!
A friend emailed me that she had given up on a book and moved on to the next. I do the same thing, now ... it's amazing to me. I almost always finished a book I'd started, even if it was like pulling teeth! (antique analogy!) But once I retired ... I just quit if the book's not talking to me!! I've quit on the 3rd page; and I've quit on the next to last chapter!!! AND I don't miss it!!
Yesterday a British spokesman said, "You're not self quarantining to avoid getting the virus, you're staying home so you don't give it to someone else." Feels less selfish!
There's no sports on and that's a problem for our household!!We started binge re-watching HBO's The Sopranos. Tony's mother is such a hoot! I won't say who she reminds me of ... but we laugh and laugh at her antics!
