I dropped off leaves at the transfer station, early enough so that there wasn’t a line, and parked at Roche, figuring to walk to the Wampanoag Government Center.
I didn’t quite make it, but managed over 7,000 steps in about an hour and a half. Years ago, someone posted whimsical items on telephone poles and although I’ve driven on that road many times, I’ve not appreciated them until today.
I was fortunate enough to miss the rain – it poured later on – and to find an exquisite walking trail to the Mashpee River.
Ron did two loads of laundry. No cooking for me today, but we had plenty of leftovers.
Peter and I did the transfer station run yesterday. I helped with leaf removal, but Peter did most of it, managing to clean the whole front and a good part of the back with Joe’s leaf blower. He even cleared the area under the holly!
I’ve been working on our beds. The veg beds are still in process.
Ron has been working on and with the chipper and made progress yesterday.
Guaifenesin arrived yesterday. One of Ron’s friends recommended it if we become symptomatic. I’m all for lungs and breathing, thank you.
Yesterday I did a shop and picked up Ron’s prescription at Stop & Shop.
Living in an area with a lot of entitled old men who think they can crowd the rest of us, I like this new social distancing: if they get too close, they could die: Ha Ha Ha.
Sunny and pleasant today after a shower this morning.
Goal was 4900 steps. With Ron’s encouragement and company, ended up at over 6,200. We went around the neighborhood. I’m where I should be at 19 days (5,800). I’d lost count last weekend when my phone ran out of charge.
Ron set up the hoses. Seems to be a problem with the spigot in the back, but the front is okay.
I drove Peter to Cormier’s to pick up his car. He says it’s running much better now.
Did more raking in the front: side garden, beds in front of the house. Put the tonneau cover back on.
Picked Peter up from Cormier’s. We loaded the prunings but it was too much for the transfer station, so we did three trips to All Cape Recycling. Peter and I made a good team so it wasn’t that hard, and the people who run the place are easy to get along with.
The rest of the day is pretty much a blur. It started raining shortly after we finished, so I did the rest of my walking in front of the TV.
Ron and I did the transfer station run yesterday. I made custard with the last of the milk that was two weeks beyond “Used By” date.
I raked out the hydrangeas at the top of the driveway.
Ron went shopping for OTC meds and fruit for smoothies. He sawed off some holly limbs for Peter as well.
I am taking savage pleasure in the 100% loss of stock market earnings since Trump took office: the DJIA closed today at 19,174 vs. 19,732. I don’t suppose that’ll shut his followers up for long, though.
