I started counting down the hours when I woke up yesterday and didn’t do a lot after the COVID test except consume clear liquids and run to the bathroom.
Watched a docu-vid about Ursula K. LeGuin and did some very minor puttering outside. It was cold and windy, not the best weather, but the fresh air was a pleasure.
Feeling okay this morning. Have a weight baseline going forward.
Ron cooked a pizza yesterday, as promised, and made coffee for himself this morning. Looking back, when he had his colonoscopy five years ago, I fasted with him in sympathy. Ha!
The COVID test at Falmouth Hospital this morning went very well, the nurse was kind and skilled, there was little delay and the security guard was friendly and helpful.
I drove through West Falmouth and walked a little way at Chappaquoit Beach as a “reward”.
Received sympathetic comments from Facebook friends and followers.
Saturday I stood out, briefly, with MTR and did a walk in Falmouth Center.
Yesterday I mowed the lawn, front and back.
Today Ron and I did Lowell Holly Reservation, first time for both of us, a mile and a half to Wakeby and Mashpee Ponds round trip.
Have been pruning and weeding just about every day, sometimes for 20 minutes, sometimes for an hour and a half. Have been trying to rid the garden of milkweed.
We did a mile and a half walk on the bike path yesterday.
Ron finished work on the gutter guards!
Did two hours of green bean picking yesterday and a half hour on the rowing machine.
Ron was hurting from his session yesterday anchoring gutter guards so took the day off to recupe.
Spent some time with G and Free today shuttling from a medical lab to her doctor’s office to the pharmacy. G was nice enough to treat me to lunch. I got to walk Free.
I picked up the two meds needed for the colonoscopy prep next week. Had a lousy experience yesterday at S&S pharmacy yesterday. Not worth the convenience factor.
Ron has been busy with the gutter guards in the front.
I paid household bills and reconciled the checkbooks.
I prepped and cooked for a good part of yesterday, didn’t leave the property.
Made two salads, kale with tahini and a green; yellow squash, tomato parm casserole; baba ganoush.
Ron did the transfer station run.
We had a delightful cocktail hour on the deck.
Yesterday, Ron did a fair amount of tree work next to the driveway. He’ll cut up the branches. I loaded the truck for Emma’s sheep. Did the MTR standout in the morning.
We’ve been enjoying the rowing machine.
This morning Rondromat did laundry and we changed sheets. I cooked poached eggs with sauteed vegetables and made another attempt at cleaning the oven from the mishap the other day when I burned my hand and spilled a sheet of roasted vegetables. It would be nice to rent a steam cleaner (Home Depot) for the stove.
Changed the water pitcher filter a couple of days ago.
I dropped the leaves off at Emma’s and had a nice visit afterwards with G and Free. G made my day by serving prosecco, which I’d been craving since hearing about a party to which I’d not been invited.
Picked up a few groceries at Stop & Shop.
