Happy Sunday! I hope you are all healthy and safe.

Oklahoma is having a second surge that is worse than the first one. Also troubling is that this week we added 2 more categories of positive age groups. Under 2 and 6 to 10. Our major positive spreaders are in the 18 to 35 group and next the 35 to 49 group. I’m not in any of those groups so I guess my natural tendency to stay at home is finally paying off. OU Boy and I are perfectly fine at the moment.

His heart is working just fine and for once no one is hurting anywhere. I swear when you hit 40 your entire body just says, ” That’s it. All systems shutting down.” I have found the way to encourage OU Boy is to keep telling him how cute he looks after losing ten pounds. He’s awfully vain and it seems to be working.

We may get Fall today! At least for a day or so. It’s 11 a.m. and still grey outside and nothing is moving. This is suspicious behavior for OKC. The wind is always blowing. For the past couple of days it has been so bad I was not allowed outside due to the eye thingy. So instead I caught up on reviews, and binge watched The Haunting of Bly House which I liked less than the Haunting of Hill Manor. Even with the Stephen King Easter Egg in one of the scenes. I saw that, Stephen!

The election smack talk is heating up on Twitter but now that he is out of Twitmo, he is being careful. As I explained to him, it is possible to read something you disagree with and just move on.

I bought this book for my granddaughter and then read it myself. She loves mysteries. Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, all the old ones. But now Sherlocks daughter and Watson’s son are hooking up solving crimes and it’s one of the best YA series!

The Covid thing is putting holidays in jeopardy. I don’t care for my relatives enough to travel 12 hours to eat turkey and get infected. North Dakota, I’m talking to you! Get your shit together and stop infecting people so we can go to Canada.

As I sit here in my flamingo pajamas looking out the window I am totally grateful that we are here and in good health. And I wish that for all of you. No holiday or gift giving event is a good enough reason to be foolish and infect grandma and grandpa with a deadly virus.

Now I am off to feed my squirrel that I have befriended during isolation. She had triplets 2 weeks ago and is chowing down now. What is the weirdest thing you have done during lockdown?

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday!

I seriously did not want to leave my bed this morning. I think my senses were just overwhelmed by all of the ugliness that went on last night and all of the nasty and self-serving comments that were made concerning the tragedy in London.

It will kick your anxiety into overdrive! But I think the saddest thing I heard last night was..” So what, it’s not like it’s here.” I don’t even have an answer to that. I can’t wrap my head around that.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Sunday Sunshine…and Ice Cream!

Sunshine is pouring through the windows this Sunday morning. Isn’t it great how Yellow can just make you feel happy?

I recently read someplace that Off Line is the new luxury. I have spent quite a bit of time in doctor’s waiting rooms lately and it’s impossible not to notice that everyone is on their phone. Playing games, checking social media and ignoring everyone around them.

For my birthday I received a new smart phone and I am making a conscious effort to not  be on it after 6 p.m. That could be because I don’t know how to use all the features yet but it sounds better to say I’m being a better human and not ignoring people.

Off to claim my chair in the sunshine and finish reading! Have a Sunny Sunday!
