As you can see, I am still not feeling the best. The pneumonia is pretty much over, but this stupid cold is lingering. I am wearing this mask to protect you from any germs that may be transmitted through cyberspace. (Sure is creepy looking though).
Dear friend Jodi is back in town. Her sister, Dixie, did pass away last Monday. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole family. - - - - Hey, actually, just this minute I got a call from Jodi. The gang is meeting up tomorrow night. The gang. That really sounds "high schoolish", doesn't it? A more correct description would be "60-somethings huddling, drinking a beer or two (in my case, a Diet Pepsi), and talking for hours"! We are going to meet up in our old stomping grounds where we went to school. At this stage of our lives, I doubt if anyone will be cruising up and down main street like we did in the good old days. Can you picture that? A whole line of minivans and SUVs slowing driving around. It would look like a funeral procession. Plus, at our age, we know the value of a dollar, and can't bring ourselves to waste gas by just idly driving around.
I did manage to mow all the properties last week, but they need it again. However, it has been rainy and dreary, so it will be a few more days until I can do anything. Yup, I even mow when I'm sick. Dad was like that. He had to keep the yard looking nice. Uh, I also have a daughter who is following that family trait. I think she's already mowed her yard three times this year.
Since I have been trying to take it a little easy, I have spent several hours working on my writing. I have become addicted to creating a collection of stories about Molly and Pet Ladybug. It is a fun hobby and I can just go to my happy place whenever I sit down at the computer and write about their little fictional lives.
I've already bought some packets of sunflower seeds. Every year, I try to do a better job at raising them. Remember last year when I was shocked and thrilled to produce three HUGE sunflowers? Hopefully there will be lots more this year. I'll keep ya posted. I also want to buy some annuals and get them put out on the deck. Is it true that you have to wait until about May 10th to safely have plants outside? We are in a crazy state where a darn late frost can sneak in and kill anything set outside.
Well I must go now. I feel the need to freshen my lipstick on my facemask. Tah Tah
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
