Donkey on 05/31/2020:
I'm surprised you went into the city, with all the aftermath and current protesting. I hope it was a pleasant trip. Sounds like a nice diversion from everything, actually.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/31/2020:
Yes we didn’t end up getting into any complications to the part of the city we went to.

On the way home we were held at a light for around 10 minutes while a protest parade went by, but then It was light traffic as usual.

Ricky wanted to go to his work office which we did bc he wanted to go in when it was very quiet and not busy with a lot of people.


bearcountrygg on 05/31/2020:
Uh.....they are rioting in Brooklyn and Manhattan....

How old is the baby now?

horn_of_plenty on 05/29/2020:
18 months and running around all day!


Donkey on 05/30/2020:
How are your legs and ankles after your long, slow walk? Sometimes, the slower walks can be harder. Standing is exhausting! But how nice that you got to visit with your family! And I feel that it's so important to take advantage of lovely weather.

That's so cute though that the baby is 18 months old. Not much longer a baby! I loved the 2-3 years old stage. Oh yes, there were difficult days, but overall, what a wonderful age.

Hope you had a lovely chair yoga session!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2020:
Lol I’m outta cardio shape so of course I was happy to sit after standing around lol

Chair yoga was a private session ....she started to chit chat and I was like.....no!!!!! Luckily she got back to the yoga around 5 mi. Later :)

Breakfast sandwich....YUM!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/24/2020:
Great change of pace but I admit I like my own better :-)


Donkey on 05/24/2020:
Have you heard of a thing called a Quarantine Bubble? I saw it on PBS last night. A group of friends, who have a pact to follow all quarantine social rules, so that they can meet together in person in their small group. I thought of you and Ricky, since you kind of do this already.

Hopefully you will be with other citizens who value the health and safety of others to follow the public health protocols.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/24/2020:
Yes the people we were with were also pretty careful ;) though you can never be too careful right ?!

Ricky didn’t want to walk with them so I went on a different walk with him after talking to my friends...he was happy.


Maria7 on 05/24/2020:
Sounds wonderful! Enjoy your walk.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/24/2020:

Horn_of_plenty on 05/23/2020:
I like roasted as well but decided it’s time to cook something “basic”


bearcountrygg on 05/23/2020:
It is getting difficult to buy meat here sometimes now......I wonder when your meal boxes will start having trouble.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/23/2020:
Yes I hope it gets better instead of worse :/

Actually it is not so busy. Yes, there were more people in there today on a Friday at noon, but, no I didn’t need to wait for a machine. But yeah to 3 young people using it at noon on a Friday! So you are right I guess !


Donkey on 05/23/2020:
Sounds like a good day! I hope you enjoyed chair yoga!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/23/2020:
I enjoy the chair yoga bc it does involve stretching and movement and is a good activity at a perfect time on Friday’s from 4:15-5:15 to work into my home schedule :)
