Sunny and warm today and I'm expecting the same for tomorrow. That will be really nice as we are going to celebration of life for a good friend who passed on about the same time as my son this past December. It will be held at a local lake but not the one we live on.
Carole, I have had a little better luck ordering some things ( it has been awhile ) from Haband. It was jeans with an elastic waist. They didn't give me a super fit in the thigh area ( a bit roomy to say the least ) but they were fine in the waist and importantly the length. I didn't order anymore and not sure I would although my weight loss may have made it possible to buy the biggest size in misses that ( maybe ) could give me the same overall good fit and maybe even have a tad less room in the thighs/leg area if I ordered now. Just haven't tried. I've looked at both web-sites ( Blair and Haband ) and feel like their sizing is hard to figure.
Seems like a few more people around here are going w/o masks, but plenty still have them on. I think part of the idea was to protest others by our keeping up with masks ( we can still infect others even if we stay well with vaccinations ) and to possibly protest ourselves for now from some of the variants. I plan to still wear a mask when I go into retail stores around here. There are a couple of restaurants around here that I go into and take off my mask to eat. We usually avoid going inside though unless we know there is plenty of 'room' to keep a distance. We try ( if we know we are going ) to choose an off less busy time.
In defense, it has seemed here that cases were taken seriously from the beginning and people had to take safety measures for themselves and others immediately on dx. Likely why we never had a serious outbreak in the general population. There was some at a couple of congregate living places but even there they took heavy-duty precautions to keep it confined and in control. I do yearn for the time when we can go w/o masks and hope it will not be too long before we get a green light.
Have been able to get a bit done on my living room clean/up but consisted mainly of moving some pieces to storage. Looks better in here, but that mainly freed up room for me to start some serious sorting. I will be helping someone else ( I'll be paid ) as her health circumstances have changed and hope to do something similar for her. Actually, it will be a lot easier. Less for me to decide/choose. I won't be attached to her things like I am what is here. Helping her may be a great inspiration for me to be stern with myself. I do think my daughter coming to live here has made it more imperative that I fulfill my desire to have my household ( way too numerous items and kept way, way too long ) way more minimal in scope. So much easier to clean. Hope Kate is not too much like me about keeping things. I do think it seems she is better at getting containers for things you want to keep -- rather than letting them take up much space singly setting around the house somewhere. Fingers crossed.
Hope you all have a beauty of a day and the whole week-end too.
P.S. Carole, we do order at times a whole lot from Amazon and also have their pre-paid program which gives us access to free tv using their Amazon Firestick. We had the Firestick before we took a subscription to Hulu. Afterwards -- Spectrum gave us a deal where we will get 125 channels from them for $14.00 a month for 8 months which we took. After 8 mos. if they don't give us a very similar deal we will cancel the tv part of our service. Our daughter pays for the Hulu and we take care of the Spectrum which includes not only the tv, but our house phone and the Internet.
Each day I am thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality and likes that turned into love. ~~~Elizabeth Kuebler-Ross
