HAPPY MAY DAY!
Good May Day (Friday) Morning, Dear Porchies,
This reminds me of the baskets my friends and I made and gave to each other on May Day every year when we were kids. We also made them for the old people in the hood and hung them on their doorknobs. Another quaint practice that's probably gone by the by.
Please go back to read the last posts on Porch 1195. Rock posted.
Rock, I know the Kindle takes a bit of getting used to but I, and most people I know, love using the Kindles to read. There are a ton of books you can download instantly from libraries or Amazon. Many on Amazon are dirt cheap to buy. I'm sure many books are on hold from libraries right now for e-readers. I hope libraries will be open soon but, in the meantime, I hope you can find something to read. Gordon has worked heroically to get the Kindle set up because there were a few glitches. I've always said he is a keeper! Glad Miss Kitty is happy and well. As much of a pain as SV can be, and as expensive he has been, he is a real blessing in my life. Right now, he is clawing at the little scratch pad in the middle of one of his track ball games. He just batted the ball around the track on the edge. That's how he keeps his batting arm in shape. Sounds as though all is well there. Good to see you back on the Porch.
So nice to wake to neat polished nails and soft skin. I sanded the dead skin off of my heels and wore some skin repair lotion to bed last night. Everything is sooo dry. I have alligator skin. AACCKK! Today I will shampoo my hair. I want to get outside because today is sposda be a beautiful day with no rain. We got a lot of rain yesterday, a real blessing. Speaking of blessings--you Porchies are a blessing in my life. I hope all y'all have a good day.
Aah, a nice hot shower and my hair blown dry. I'll style it and spray it in a few minutes. Standing while I dry it makes my sciatica hurt. Joe came over to sit for a few minutes earlier. He feels awful; I think it's a sinus inflammation or a virus. His head is all stuffed up. He's a bit down in the dumps because he doesn't feel well. Wish I could help him but I think it helps just to sit out in the fresh air and talk. He is exhausted and doesn't feel like doing anything. Welcome to my world.
Just got back from Publix. Got more than I had intended to but they had big bags of shrimp on sale. I can always make something with them. I love seafood Alfredo over penne pasta. Most people had on masks but a few didn't and one big guy (why is it always a big guy?) was plowing his way through not respecting any distance at all. I guess if one is a jerk in normal times, one is a jerk all the time. One woman had on no mask and came the wrong direction dancing down the aisle, literally dancing, and looking at her phone. She went out with her cart into the parking lot still reading her phone.
There were some paper products but I don't need any. I just always check to see whether shortages continue. There were no wipes available. I found some gel cap ibuprophen that has no stearates and there was a $2 coupon. Woo Hoo! I got four chicken tenders at the deli and they are sooo good. Gonna rest because the sciatica keeps stabbing me in the back and hip. It's agonizing. I need to do some stretches. Check out the pic of the sleeping kitty I posted over on the Homebound Board.
