Guess Summer has gone on vacation as the day is dull and overcast, but at least it’s not windy, not raining, and actually quite warm.
I’ve walked the dog after a relatively late start, she having got me up at 5 and 6 am and not do anything!!!
I met up with a lady in her 80s who had the same op as me 20 odd years ago. She has a little cockapoo and it was nice to walk with someone and catch up as apart from waves or hellos from across the way or behind the gate, we’d had little contact. We were able to keep our distance with no problem at all and it extended the walk by at least ten minutes!
It has been a really bad week on the diet front. I lost a pound last week (weigh in is tomorrow) and I’ve put that back on. Boredom has been a killer and both of us have been snacking throughout the day. This works for Hubby, but not for me as the day (or in this case most of the week) is just one long snack.
At least we’ve been out walking the dog, some days her having as many as 6 walks, but we’ve also watched a couple of weird Sci-fi movies on a channel Hubby has recently found on the internet and played darts in the hall. Other than that and a couple of car trips to the vet and shopping, we haven’t done anything except eat!!
The ‘non essential’ shops are due to open tomorrow and we envisage everyone out in force and desperation to spend. We intend to give it a few days before we even think about venturing out to look at laptops or sheds, give the people time for the novelty to wear off or realise that costs have gone up since the lockdown as businesses are trying to recoup their losses.
Curry for dinner today. The sultanas are soaking with the spices and stock cube, and I’ll cook the chicken separately so that Maggie can have some for her dinner and I can crumble in her glucosamine. Only 3 more days of antibiotics and hopefully Tuesday will show she’s in the clear. If her appetite is anything to go by, though she is what my Mum would have called ‘nice hungry’ (haven’t we all been this week, sigh), there’s no problem there and she should actually be pot-bellied!
I didn’t post very much yesterday as my inspiration took a breather. There are some photo and word challenges in the pipeline for today so hopefully something will register in my head. We shall see.
