Had a light frost over nioght...and thankfully the snow is lmost gone.....then of course the mud starts....but that's okay.

We have a ton of dog food being delivered this morning so that will take awhile to get moved to the barn....but a relief to have over with........that along with what we already have will keep the hounds fed for about a year. 

In fact the dog food just arrived as I'm writing this.

Today  I had coffee and a hot granola type cereal cup for breakfast.....chuck roast in the oven, and green bean casserole going in the oven at about 11..........no potatoes...but.... I found a packet of instant mashed 3 cheese potatoes in the cupboard..there is also leftover broccoli in the fridge.  Leftovers will come in handy tomorrow..........

I'm doing another closet cleanout this morning......this just seems to be a catch all for anything......I do believe that we need to start using things up before we get new...one thing out...one thing in......wanting something just does not carry the same weight now.......needing something needs to be more important........this quarantine is pointing out to me and probably a lot of people...that the simple things in life are taken for granted...until we lose them....then they become all important......(Like TP).

Tonight will probably be leftovers....: )

Donkey on 04/05/2020:
I did a lot of cleaning today. NOT decluttering, like I really need to do, but I did all of the bathrooms and mopped the floors in the basement and main level. My daughter's bathroom floor was covered in dirty clothes, so I did her laundry.

All in all, I felt it was a productive day.

bearcountrygg on 04/06/2020:
Not going out unnecessarily does make working on home things a lot easier......you got a lot done!


Horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2020:
wow a whole year supply of dog food! sounds like it will take awhile to put away ! :)

just like you, i'm still wanting to clean more in my closets too. yesterday, i randomly took out around 10 more shirts to donate. and i still have more to clean/remove, for sure...also realizing i soon will need to do a bathroom cleaning LOL how i hate cleaning the bathroom!

bearcountrygg on 04/06/2020:
Yes...but the tractor was a huge help......I also HATE cleaning the bathrooms......and they need it again around here and I keep putting it off.

I woke up this morning thinking that to keep myself busy....maybe I would do food pics again today....possibly a quarantine diary.........I'm eating differently a bit......and I'm noticing that I'm leaning on the snack foods way too much again........I haven't shopped since March 12th for anything   (The metal storage cabinets that we had ordered a month ago...that never arrived..are now not going to be delivered...I cancelled the order so I can forget about it)....the printer according to amazon will be arriving sometime in mid to late may......whatever...the ink is here waiting for it)...other than D's regular meds...we are are expecting nothing.  We  are using whatever is on hand.....all across the board for the household ( had to buy tractor parts though because of a hydraulic leak)......so whatever was here before march 13th...is what we are using.......still good on all things...but that will change in the next couple of weeks...when I will be scraping and scrounging around for some things ( mainly perishables).

Day 21 of quarantine

I'm not having any problem staying busy...there are plenty of things to do that I rarely think about so it's a nice change of pace. 

Breakfast = coffee, cereal and a coconut beverage (milk substitute) = 136 calories

I need to remember to drive the car at least 30 minutes every 3 weeks...I DO NOT want a repeat of what kept happening with my Moms car....after she had to stop driving.....

I'm challenging myself to stay either in the house, or yard or in the car to keep the battery charged...for as long as possible........since we are in the danger zone as far as our ages and health....catching this virus would likely be too serious for us.  Thankfully we are pretty well stocked around here and this sort of thing is why we are. 

I also do not want to have to buy bigger clothes....they are gone....and I refuse to replace them.......I don't need to get on the scales to tell me that the stuff I've been eating though will make that necessary...so......back to counting calories to get myself back in line again.  I don't have any idea of what i weigh right now....but pants are a bit snug......so possibly 10 pounds up from the usual..maybe a little more.........so..need to take off a few again..and back in losing mode.

Keeping busy with.......moving some canned goods to the kitchen, taking things out of the freezer for dinner, washing 1 load of laundry a day now...because dryer is acting up....LOL...I can always hang 1 load up if necessary...but will use the dryer as long as I can.  Made bed, took bath, dressed, hair, make up., vacuumed.

Lunch was brown rice with quinoa, broccoli, 1 slice american cheese and tea

Forgot to take a pic of dinner........Hamburger helper lasagna and cauliflower....getting into the pantry foods that were stored  now.

 

 

 

 

Donkey on 04/03/2020:
Staying busy and mixing up the activities you are doing is great! Last weekend, I picked up an old knitting project. I can only knit for short sessions because my hands start to ache and also my attention wanders... but it was a nice change of pace for me!

You know you'll always have a captive audience here for your food pics!

Nice Lady and I were just talking about what a difference 10 pounds makes, how you really feel a difference (either direction).

bearcountrygg on 04/03/2020:
I hear you about the knitting...many years ago...I started a afghan...that actually uses 5 strands of(skeins) yarn at the same time....( I had never used more than one strand at a time before).....It's lets just say HEAFTY!!!!!!...LOL...I will admit...it moves along quickly...but man that thing is heavy...and I can't get motivated to work on it anymore....and all of the stuff fills a big plastic bin now...LOL The pics will not be very creative....just basics...LOl 10 pounds...really does...and according to an old WW leader...15 pounds is a size...and that was always true for me too....I like big shirts but I am so uncomfortable in baggy pants....well...my pants are now FAR from baggy...LOL...need to get on this!


Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
Ummm the cereal and milk looks so good.... I may do Chex mix next like you did :) that is Chex I believe !!!!

bearcountrygg on 04/04/2020:
It's just like corn chex...although this was an off brand.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
Your meals look great and you def can lose the Weight again even if it takes double the time to do it :-)

bearcountrygg on 04/04/2020:
I don't think it will take too long....I feel like I'm lower today already...pants are as tight,,,LOL

My guess is that everyone had trouble getting to this site yesterday......

Missed reading about everyones day.

I kind of got caught ....was able to get in.....and then after typing for awhile wasn't able to post it.....so I'm kind of afraid to write much now........back later...and see how this goes.

Snow is almost gone here now......

D had to break his quarantine yesterday....tractor spewing hydraulic fluid all over....and we have a ton of dog food getting delivered in the next few days...and the tractor is needed to move it to the barn...so....he went.....we agreed....replacement part was cheap...he would pay with cash and let them keep the change...and it worked well.....for a farm machinery store...they were on it...they had set up a table with hand sanitzer and paper towels.......still...he got to the truck...used sanitzer again...threw his clothes in the washer.......and that was about all he could do.  That business was doing it's best and we appreciated that.

People are heading up here and setting up squats on any vacant land they can find...Police and DNR are running them out....but they just locate somewhere else until they get caught again.........time to start issuing tickets I believe.  Our little gravel road has never seen so many police cars before.

As of this morning....our schools while they have been closed for awhile...will now be closed until the fall...with online schooling through the summer for those that can get the internet ( we do have many places in MI that are too remote for internet).......

Both sons had checked in on things here before 8 this morning....and are probably relieved that the old people are still able to function...( in some capacity at least...LOL.)

So far today.....the eating is quite disjointed...all very small quantities...I'll just list them here......

coffee, 1 pancake, tiny amt of smoked sausage, protein bar.............chicken salad, cauliflower, corn,scalloped potatoes 1 tiny kind bar, 3 tiny hershey minis and a glass of diet ginger ale.  Almost afraid to count those calories..........but clothes are still fitting...so that's a good sign.  I'm out of luck if they get too tight...LOL...and will just have to live with it.

Afternoon = 5 pretzels, broccoli, brown rice with quinoa, mini pkg mand m's , tea

I had just finished writing up a long entry and even I hit submit, the system was down. Thank goodness I was able to post comments first!

bearcountrygg on 04/02/2020:
Somehow I figured if I could get in here...all was well...nope....I lost a long post to your questions.....and did post a shorter one today.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2020:
Yes yes! So glad it’s back up and running today !

I was recording my menu and calories by email yesterday lol

Awake since 3 something...finally got up at 5.......coffee......catching up on the news..........

A sad commentary on people......tippee dam where people have always liked to fish...will have to be closed...because people just can't seem to follow directions...........

Today I will look around the house and find things to do......( things that need to be done, things that I enjoy doing, things that will keep me busy.)

Today I will NOT be part of the problem...I WILL be part of the solution!!!

The fact is...Tomorrow never comes...because it's always today.....so for today.........I will not put myself in danger, I will work to get along with everyone that I am in contact with........I will do my part to keep myself safe and to also keep others safe....I will be home..inside....doing what I am supposed to do.

So for today....I'm going to list every thing I do today...( except for TMI...ain't nobody want to write that or read it for that matter.)

1. Drinking coffee and watching the news

2.  Checking facebook and email, instagram and facebook.........and noting things I want to go back to later

3. Bath, hair, make up, dressed

4.  Gathered laundry and started washer

5.  Made bed

6.  Cleared the dining room table...for some reason it quickly becomes a  catch all.

7. Put everything on the table away...yeah...some in the trash.

8.  Put tablecloth in laundry

9. Checking cup of ink pens and pencils...looking for duds...and pencils that need to be sharpened

 

 

 

 

Donkey on 04/01/2020:
Not to be negative, but I hear you on a$$hats that don't follow rules. Just sayin'...

Ok, now you got me thinking! What make- up do you use? I follow Katherine Hepburn's routine: moisturizer, face powder, lipstick. However, sometimes I'll use just a lip balm, to keep lips neutral, and use a heavy eyeliner and mascara to play up the eyes, like Twiggy.

What kind of laundry detergent do you use? I like Purex because of the scent, but recently, I've switched to their gentle no- scent because it's easier on the skin. Also use generic liquid Downey. When my daughter worked for a vet, they used that for all their bedding and linens so I figure it's ok to use.

Do tell!

bearcountrygg on 04/02/2020:
Tried to post yesterday and wasn't able to......I'll keep this short....I'm not brand loyal at all....I do wear moisturizer, foundation, a loose powder, lipstick a little eye shadow and mascara.....laundry...I use whatever looks like a good deal...if things start getting dingy i go to Tide...but it's strong so I only use it when needed. i use dryer sheets...I got away from liquid fabric softener because it makes clothes more flammable....here we do burn limbs etc...at times so I don't use it for that reason.


innerpeace on 04/01/2020:
Thank you, thank you, thank you for staying safe. We have idiots running all over the place; like they're on vacation or something.

The videos I see on facebook and tv are heart wrenching, I think that drowning and suffocating have got to be the worst kind of dying. I would hate to suffer with COVID-19...worst nightmare ever.

Checking pens and pencils...love this. Who would even think about this as a task...genius.

Have a great day.

bearcountrygg on 04/02/2020:
That kept me busy for awhile...now I just need to find the pencil sharpener.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2020:
I love the to do list ! Helps me tons and last night I read on Facebook how it makes you feel better to check off what you did :)

bearcountrygg on 04/02/2020:
Marking things off is very satisfying for me too......we have the time....it's a good habit to get into.

Woke up this morning with the alert that our small county which is mostly state and federal forrests...now has IT!  As funny as it may sound...our tiny town is the hub of the county....we have the grocery store, courthouse...etc.  So now it gets even more real here.  Our community is mainly retired and amish......basically we are a resort area because of the forrests, the amish stores and the ausable river...which becomes a very active tourist town every may to sept.......so this just a bit more serious around here....

Thinking about taking the truck and car for drives today....because both have been idle for 3 weeks....it's time to charge up the batteries with 30 minute drives each....to make sure they keep running.   Not getting out of the car...not even to top off the gas tank.......

Then back at home.......I will be doing some basic cleaning.

coffee so far

Took the car on a 40 minute drive....and loved it.  D is taking his truck out now...he loaded the hounds to give them a break too.......that was possibly the fastest 40 minutes in my life...LOL

Got back and had some leftover pasta with cheese and bagel seasoning on it....delish and the last can of pepsi zero.....and a couple of large cookies.

Washing all bedding including pillows, bedspread etc......plus anything else in the laundry room.

Paid a couple of bills and took them to the mailbox.

Going to sit down and enjoy the alone time now.    I do love my alone time.....LOL

 

Donkey on 03/31/2020:
Taking a drive is a good idea! Not only for the vehicles and their batteries, but also for you too. I hope you have good weather for this.

I'm a little jealous of the cleaning and purging you and Horn have been able to accomplish. You've both done quite well with that.

bearcountrygg on 03/31/2020:
Weather was overcast...but it was a nice drive.......and really nice to get out.....I swear things keep multiplying around here like rabbits.....it's crazy!


legcramps on 03/31/2020:
Sounds like you are doing really well! It's nice to get outside for some fresh air and go for a drive every now and then. Have a safe week!

bearcountrygg on 03/31/2020:
It was nice...after being at home for so long.....it should warm up here enough to get outside more...looking forward to it.


Horn_of_plenty on 03/31/2020:
yes good idea to drive those cars :) maybe you can both go toget in one vehicle?

OH MY...i must wash my bedding at some point...i've done pillows EVERY week but i haven't wash sheets in a couple weeks at least. i'll get there. it's not urgent!

bearcountrygg on 03/31/2020:
I think we actually both enjoyed a little break...LOL I actually wash the pillows themselves...we have the MY PILLOWS that you may have seen on TV....they lend themselves to washing really well.

Up at 5:30....and had my coffee...then...another bowl of Christmas cereal...with coconut milk...added honey because I have been craving sweets.....rice krispies can use a little sweetening..........and once again...enjoyed it.

I went through some of our supplies and condenced them...moved a few to the kitchen........took some chicken wings from the freezer for dinner.

Some things that we are taking here along with our multiple vitamins are

1.  Zinc

2.  Vitamin D

3.  Elderberry gummies

4.  Natural black licorice candy

5.  Using TYLENOL as needed.....and avoiding advil and motrin

I have no idea if they are making any difference...but i will say that we both feel good......

Because I have had an ongoing lung issue my entire life ( asthma and a tendency to pneumonia)...when I start wheezing...I take a mucus reducer and in a couple of days....no more wheezing..

So far for me...it's been 18 days of self quarantine........and as long as I keep busy...and don't do too much negative thinking....all is well........D seems to be alternating between calm and frustration.........It's obvious to me ( and him too)...that his hearing is getting worse......his voice is getting louder and louder.....and while I have been trying to get him to look into hearing aids for years with his refusal........yesterday i noticed he was watching a you tube video about hearing aids....I guess this has made us all change our lives enough that we are more aware of things that in the past we were able to ignore.

Things are accumulating for donation, returnable cans are coming out of the car too....these things can't be dropped off now and are cluttering up the car.  I won't be decorating graves down state this year........this will be the first time missing the visit to our parents, my brother and our grandparents graves.........but I'm sure that if they are up there looking down...they will understand.  Still it seems strange.

Today.......I have a long list of TO DO'S.........Too long to put here...but I plan to just get started and keep going until either I'm worn out.....or the list is done.....I will say one thing......I'm finding a lot of things that in the long run...and in the overall picture...now seem frivilous or unneeded.......and they take up space.  Some things have turned out to be life savers and well worth storing.........tools, repair items, canned goods, prescriptions filled as soon as they are available, and over the counter meds and vitamins.  Filling the vehicles gas tanks up before we come back home on each drive.  Soap of all kinds, laundry, dish, bath etc....bleach and disinfecting cleaning products.......I'm getting interested in seeing how long we can go before shopping........D keeps bringing it up...not me........I told him that if someone feels the strong enough need to go to the store...then THAT PERSON can go alone instead of doubling our contact with germs.....he looked at me like I had just kicked him.....he thinks we should both go...I think we have enough of everything....end of story.

Talked to oldest son ...he's fine.....he is head of meat, produce and deli in a store.......talked to youngest sons wife ( daughter in law) this morning...they are fine as are grown grandsons and great grandsons......so healthg is with us so far....lots to be thankful for there.

Getting things done......including a call to the bank that turned into something akin to a clown car.....1 question I had to answer was just not getting answered by me...correctly...LOL.....she needed a recent transaction name and number...and I was just not giving the right one...we laughed...I think she was about to start making a buzzer sound...LOL....finally...GOT IT!!!

Chicken wings and scalloped potatoes  in the oven.

innerpeace on 03/30/2020:
That is so scary! Wood - 4 days OMG my counter at work is wood. AND paper...what on earth. paper will be almost impossible to disinfect.

bearcountrygg on 03/30/2020:
I got a pkg of printer in and left it on the porch for 48 hours...then picked it up with a bag and sprayed it in the bag with lysol....and now I can't read the label....so that wouldn't work on papers. BUT...this does explain why the numbers keep growing and people are not at home...and are spreading it around.


Horn_of_plenty on 03/30/2020:
The chart is great :)

Where’d you find the elderberry gummies ?

I’m on Tylenol too lol TOM....if you get me !

I agree D should try to wait out the shopping and I hope he wears a mask and/or gloves or washes his hands when he gets home if he does go out!

Glad everything is well on your end !

bearcountrygg on 03/31/2020:
I had ordered the elderberry gummies just before this thing hit.....I had been seeing people use it against the general winter flu's.......I got them from amazon. I get you...LOL...spent many years living with that....a funny...I once wondered where all of my midol went.....and D told me it said it was for headaches....LOL....He had used it up!

I slept really well last night...and I'm thankful for that. 

Checked in with D's family...and all are holding it together so far.........college that nephew works at may become a testing area and dorms turning into hospital rooms.....

I keep working on D's attitude that he NEEDS certain foods......no he doesn't...he just needs survival food.........so far...I have been able to pull things out that he expects and wants.........but I'm sure at some point....that will end and he will have to face the fact that there is no more eggs, sausage, bread, butter....etc...........I find it annoying.......but then again....I am totally different and can eat any odd thing for any meal and be perfectly happy........he keeps talking about going to the store in the future...at some point......I want that talk to stop......we have plenty.......so this morning I tossed the idea out there that if SOMEONE WANTS SOMETHING FROM THE STORE......than THAT SOMEONE CAN GO GET IT!.....otherwise....we can get by with what we already have.........he MAY have gotten the point.

He haas been going out to the barn and sitting in the doorway these last couple of days...he is used to neighbors stopping in for a chat...of course now there is none of that....he misses that .......but there is always the phone......but we both enjoy the break so it's good. 

I'm full of energy today......I'm just going to tackle things around here...this place can be cleaner, neater, more efficient and just better......so today is the day.

Things are getting doen...yet it seems there is always things to do......I'm on it.

I'm looking forward to the concert tonight on TV....hopefully I can stay awake...LOL

His breakfast was his usual...eggs, sausage, toast and coffee.........Mine will be Christmas rice krispies and coconut milk and coffee...LOL

AS A FRIEND POINTED OUT....THIS TOO SHALL PASS...IT MAY PASS LIKE A KIDNEY STONE....BUT IT WILL PASS.

 

After struggling with the kitchen sink drain  for days..this morning we just flat out attacked it........it was messy...it was not a very nice interaction between us for a couple of minutes there...but all ended well........thank goodness.......took a drill...a new part ( thankfully had it here).....a bendable brush made for cleaning under the fridge....some vinegar....a bit of patience....a bucket...a couple of itchy hives ( mine).....a few splatters with unknown gunk.......and wala......we have a sink again.

Morning snack was about sweets......

Lunch is spanish rice with ground beef and tomatoes....and cauliflower

Afternoon snack was about sweets too.....and grape juice....

Donkey on 03/29/2020:
I love the idea of a Christmas rice crispie treat for breakfast. I've seen those in the stores - so festive!

I didn't realize that your kitchen sink was THAT clogged up. That is to say, I thought you had unclogged it yesterday. Glad it's working now!

bearcountrygg on 03/29/2020:
It was draining Veeeery slooooowly........but it's fixed now.....thank goodness...


Horn_of_plenty on 03/29/2020:
yes, i'm also trying to LEARN like your D haha...that i have a lot of food that i can actually EAT without buying more at the store. i have tuna and beans and all these things....so i really only need to be buying fruit/veggies...and i may even be able to skip the store completely till after next weekend ;) we'll see though!

that's great you were able to fix your sink....it's great that you had the part! wonderful.

i like that chart above...my friend had some symptoms but not fever and she was denied getting a test lol...she WILL be ok, that's why i am laughing. this girl was trying for like THREE days to get an rx for a test...i was like, "just relax at home, stop running around, your boss should understand just get the doctor's note...". i am guessing in some neighborhoods the tests are very limited to get.

bearcountrygg on 03/29/2020:
That is scary...trying to get the test without any success...hope she is well now.

Well...this is interesting........cars are streaming past our out of the way country town........our road is staying much busier than usual........Our admittedly "dumb" governor....told people to not go north to escape the virus.......and for many...the light went on and they thought..."YEAH...LETS GO NORTH".....so here they come.....to our remote..healthy little town that is full of Federal and State forrests.........shopping in our little store.....no doctors within half an hour or more....tiny hospitals.......spreading the virus and at the same time....tearing around the roads in their quad runners, motorcycles..Running stop signs and ignoring all driving rules.....what a deal...gas is cheap now.....the checks will soon be in the bank or mail.....schools are closed, work is closed.....lets PARTY!!!

And to top it off...our DUMB governor has threatened Doctors and Pharmacists if they prescribe or fill prescriptions for the 2 drugs that are working and saving lives.........

Back when our boys were little.......I really wanted to move to an island......I wanted to shut off from society.....and it's bad influences.....of course that didn't happen....I'm getting that desire yet once again...of course...once again...that won't happen. 

People stink!!!

Donkey on 03/28/2020:
I initially replied that I didn't think I could comment constructively, but I realize that, in putting myself in your place, I can completely empathize with you. I know what it feels like to be "invaded" (is that too harsh) by folks who have no respect for other people's space.

I remember being up in Wisconsin, when my folks lived up there, and feeling this "invasion" when obnoxious visitors would come up to party for the weekend, with just utter disrespect. Hello, people - this is somebody's home! Don't go tramping across people's yards. Don't leave your trash all over the place. Shut your drunk mouth up. What is WRONG with people??

So I am sorry that people in your state have chosen to disregard the Governor. Now I see why the police are enforcing the shelter-down edict in your area.

bearcountrygg on 03/28/2020:
It does always seem like they just "cut loose" when they come up here.....and it's sad....It's a beautiful place..


Horn_of_plenty on 03/28/2020:
well, by me, cars are RACING on the highways on purpose, racing each other sometimes, or just being EXTREMELY careless and scaring drivers. they need to be pulled over and forced to take the 6-hour class along with pricey tickets.

i used to drive like a maniac when i was younger, at times, but not when roads had so many people on them and enough to cause an accident....though it's never a good idea to break the rules / laws no matter what time it is!

yeah, NYers are also leaving to go to their "homes on the shore" and summer homes. upon reaching other states, they are asking NYers to be quarrantined.

People are agitated......and young people are always looking for some way to act out....( part of the breaking away from childhood stage).....but not yet acting like adults......reminds me of middle school kids...not babies and not teens....just caught in the middle....awkward and out of sync......Unfortunately that acting out is dangerous usually. :(

Made a post...then later deleted it with my phone.......I need to stick with the computer.....

The main part was our Gov Whitmer is treatening any dr or pharmacist who prescribes or fills a prescription for the 2 drugs that seem to be working......so she will have plenty of deaths in MI to be responsible for.

A nursing home near us is apparently gearing up to take on some virus patients....even though we don't have any known cases in our county........well...apparently we will have plenty soon!   UGH.......they are moving them from the counties (where we used to live)......because there are so many........

I had chili, ginger snaps and coffee for breakfast...and I liked it.  Will probably have it again for lunch too.....and that's okay by me.

Kitchen sink drain continues to be a challenge.......getting resourseful.

Need to get a bill out to the mailbox...back later.

Getting a pile of laundry done...staying at home makes that something to keep me working on.

The weather is warming up a bit...We still have plenty of snow....but it should be gone in a few days.....

 

 

 

Horn_of_plenty on 03/27/2020:
sorry your post got deleted! it's happened to me plenty of times too!

You sound good :) Keep up the good work and getting things accomplished at home. You just reminded me, I need to drop off my maintenance/rent bill. thankfully, i was paid my last check from work today :) I was worried they may not pay me for the sick/vacation days, but they did :) glad about this extra week of pay.

We are doing fine.....it's a good time to do things that we have been putting off.......I have a HUGE picture that needs to be hung in the bedroom...that even I don't really want to tackle.....but it's a good time to do that......

That's just crazy. We have a senior living facility within a mile of my house that has a case, so that crap is pretty close to us. I need to keep my DH in the house!

bearcountrygg on 03/27/2020:
Yes...hopefully he decides to stay at home now!!!

I HATE LOGGING IN HERE ON MY PHONE - ok, got that out of my system. I had commented on your first post, before it was deleted. I don't remember what I said :( Maybe it was something about plumbing problems and my dislike for them?

LOL...ME TOO!~

Went to bed last night with a kitchen sink plugged up........woke up to it still plugged.......so this morning we have spent hours....pouring drain cleaner, plunging, on the floor cleaning out the pipe......so far so good.......no plumbers around here in good times...and we sure don't want one here now......so just so happy that we had the stuff to use.....and gave up an old pair of glasses to use as a pipe scraper ( needed something with a bend in it and the bows worked great)......funny how industrious we can be when we have to be.......and how spoiled we can be whren it's easier to make a phone call or run to the hardware store. 

Retail store son says he works with someone who's brother in law has it...so she is self quarantined because she was with him March 13th. 

The police are stopping cars now.....and the shoppers are complaining becasue they don't have the paper to prove they should be out there.

Son has the paper...but hasn't been stopped yet.

Cousin took her 2 youngest girls to a playground and then FB friends roasted her about it......their playgrounds have police tape around them...but not cousins......( she won't be going back there)

Old friend passed away 2 days ago.(possibly a stroke)..no funeral.

Well...it's almostm 11......I guess I should get dressed for the day.

2 granola bars and coffee for breakfast

Police aren't pulling cars over but the playgrounds have been closed. Still, I told my daughter to get the paper from her employer that says she is an essential worker.

My only hope is that my lawyer boss will post my bond and represent me in court for free.

bearcountrygg on 03/27/2020:
Hope she gets that paper....my son got one but hasn't had to prove it yet.


Donkey on 03/27/2020:
I'm sorry for your loss... My husband's former co-worker passed away a couple of days ago, and there will be no funeral for her either. I'm hoping that maybe later in the year, they can have a memorial service or something? Just sad... (((hugs)))

bearcountrygg on 03/27/2020:
It is sad...thank you!

very interesting how you all need papers. we don't in NYC. in NYC, they removed basketball hoops at some parks so prevent the inner city folks from playing the contact / close contact sport of basketball...lol.

yesterday, i had planned to go grocery shopping by 10am, but got there at 11:30am instead! luckily, this particular store was pretty empty and had everything. it's in an area where people don't have as much income and will not hoard as much.

sorry to hear about your old friend's passing <3

bearcountrygg on 03/27/2020:
They are stringing up police tape all over here and Ohio.........good that you found the groceries you wanted.
