Colorado is on fire! A new 5th fire. One fire has been burning for 9 weeks and has burned an area larger than NYC. People are being evacuated from their homes. This morning on my run, the sky is gray and gloomy.
Cases are rising in Denver and all of Colorado. The governor is ticked off! He's leaving
it up to mayors/municipalities to decide what to do. Denver mayor is requiring masks and cutting down the number of people allowed in a gathering. When we walk we take our mask with us but don't wear it. We walk in the neighborhood so we can cross sides of the street or walk in the middle of the street if we pass people. We occasionally will chat with a neighbor friend(s) but more than 6 feet apart. Cases are only going to continue to rise as its gets colder and people spend more time in side.
Ruth - glad you went to the wedding and caught to catch up with the brothers.
I broke down Friday and got my haircut. I go to Great Clips so got there wen they opened. The last time I got a haircut was the end of January 2020 - took 3" off. It's longer than it's been in years, but I like the length. As my DD#1 said when. sent her a selfie, was cute length. I figure that I can go another 6 months before I get it cut again. Before BC, my hair was like Gilda Radner! Thick, wavy, course and lots and lots of hair. I can't complain about my hair post chemo, as it is a good amount but still much finer than before. But when it gets longer it looks stringy and straggly.
Yesterday was DH's 65th. This is the first time in many years that none of the kids were here for his birthday or near his birthday. We missed their presence. Even without the kids, it was a great birthday. I made him a giant snickerdoodle cookie and took some smoked chicken out of the freezer that he made last month and added side dishes. He's older than me for 6 1/2 months!! I'm already getting mail for medicare.
No snow in the immediate future but the mountains sure could use it - and I'm sure it would help the wildfires. Cooler today only in the low 50s and cloudy.
I ordered a Cubii under the desk eliptical that should arrive today. Will try it out tonight when DH and I watch a movie. So far, I've been doing great with steps. I've been running every morning but its getting harder before work and be ready to get on the computer before 8 since it's dark till at least 6:45. Tomorrow is an all day PD day - I have one 8-11:30 and ten 2-3:30 so too much screen time. In between the two, a walk is in order and catch up on paperwork. Actually, I need to do paperwork today. Cant seem to get 4 days work done in 4 days. I keep saying I want to work till DD#2 is done University - so this year and 2 or 3 more, but there are days I say this year and then one more, 6 months after DH. Time will tell.
Have a great Sunday. Sorry to ramble so much about me.
