2020 March 30 Monday in Liberty Hill TexasGood morning and welcome to our daily journal!
This is day seventeen of being self isolated, not wanting to be around folks with the corona-virus.
nother wonderful night of sleep. No alarm to wake us. No need to get out of bed, or at least no reason to stay out of bed, once we were up. No place We had to go. No place We should go.o, much later than normal, I got out of bed, started coffee, used the bathroom, weighed myself, and then came back to the bed, not to lay down, but to sit with my phone, and update information for the blogs.he sky became lighter after raining for a few hours. It never, however, became less overcast.e have found eggs at our local market here in Liberty Hill. However, I’m stretching them a little. What? You didn’t know you can s-t-r-e-c-h an egg? One way to stretch an egg is to squeeze the chicken while she’s laying it. But, since that isn’t easy, requires incredible timing, and makes the hen distrust you ever after. No the method I’m using is to mix up some powdered egg, then add a real egg before scrambling. It improves the flavor of the powdered egg greatly.had purchased some fresh fruit yesterday. I only wish I had gotten more nectarines.f course we played many rounds of Fast Track. I believe that a day without Fast Track is a day without sunshine. Oh, wait ~ this was a day without sunshine.oing laundry this way is a bit more labor intensive than going to the laundromat. But it is still better than beating them on a rock. However, as long as Ella keeps putting quarters in my pocket, I’ll keep at it.ow listen, I know my family and friends. Y’all have been thinking some inappropriate response to the joke about the quarters ~ don’t send ’em to me. Ya hear?t was too wet to put the clothes outside to dry, what with all the rain and all. So we put a large trash bag on the floor to catch the drips. Then opened one of the new dryer racks above it. After rinsing and ringing the clothes by hand, they were loaded onto the rack. Then a fan was positioned to blow on them. DIY y’all!.e needed to leave home and go to the doctors office. Don’t get excited and worried. We were just dropping a urine sample for testing. Tomorrow at 8:30 in the morning Ella has a Telemed conference with her urologist. So current lab work is needed on a sample. Ella went in armed with face mask and sanitizing wipe.lso tomorrow morning, from six to seven, Wal-Mart will be open for old people only. There were a passel of things that were out of stock yesterday. I’m going to go in and see if they were restocked overnight.nd then, around ten we both have a teleconference with our heart doctor. We will take our own weight, use our own, blood pressure cuff, and temperature if needed…
God bless and g’nite.
