Takinig it easy

I went to bed early this evening and now I'm awake. I haven't had a smoke now for fourteen hours and not doing do badly. I actually feel pretty good and haven't had too many cravings. I don't think I'll be staying up that late I'm pretty tired. I'm still at my girlfriends I should really go back to sleep. I'll write again in the memory patient.

At my girlfriends

I had a great night's sleep. I'm just sitting out having a smoke and a coffee. A little sore this morning but not to bad. I was up twice in the night went to bed early. I was tired. It looks like it's going to be another beautiful day. There is a nice breeze a perfect day. It's great. I think I'll play some Aardwolf. I'll write later.

Yesterday was my anniversary

We went out to dinner and sat on the patio at East Side Marios. It was great going out and having dinner. We were married 6 years ago on the 21st summer solstice.. This year because of it being a leap year it was on the 20th. Hubby is going away so I'm going to my friend for a sleepover. I've given up on drawing and taking pics. I'm tired and bored. Well just a quick note ill write later. Keep safe.

I cooked dinner this evening

I also got my hair cut. I smoked one and now I'm becoming pain-free. Thank the Lord for that. I'm tired right now and I'm going to bed. Not much else left to say. Keep safe.

Day 3 of Stage 2

We actually went to the mall yesterday it was busy people there checking out what was open. They have removed all the seats in the mall so for me it was difficult to be there as I can't walk very far without sitting down and I only had my cane, not my walker. It would have been nice that they had single handicap chairs spaced out throughout the mail for the handicap to be able to sit down. That's my only complaint I have really. Lots of hand sanitizer. It was interesting I do have to say. So I'm pretty sore this morning. Just waiting till 4 to take my meds.
The church is opening up today with two services in the morning so we can keep up with the social distancing. It will be nice to get to church again. It has been okay watching it but to go and worship with others will be nice. I'm planning on riding my bike there and then over to my sisters. It will be a nice day I'm going to the 8:30 service this morning so I'm not sure if I'll go back to sleep or not maybe. It was an interesting day. I just checked the stats and I'm not going to record them but it looks like things are starting to slow down. I hope opening places up doesn't bring on a second out brake. I guess we will just have to wait and see. Keep safe.

Not sure what to call this post?

Do I call it Day 87 or Day 1 of Stage 2? Maybe I should just stop counting now altogether and start living life as if we were back to our new normal. I had a wonderful day yesterday with my granddaughter is amazing. It was a great day I was able to get down on the floor and play with her read to her. I just loved it. She is so special. I wish my grandsons were as close as my granddaughter so I could see them more. They just bring me so much joy.
My Granddaughter
My youngest Grandson
My oldest Grandson
I just love them all to bits. They are all so special and growing so fast. My Granddaughter is 10 months now. My youngest Grandson is 7 and a bit months and my oldest Grandson is almost 4 years old. He will be starting school in September, it's hard to believe it seems just like yesterday he was born. 
I was even able to spend a bit of time with my Grandfurbaby as well Vern. He's a beautiful yellow lab of my granddaughters. 
Vern and my Granddaughter
In this pic he is all tired out from retrieving. He was a little crazy when I first got there he thought it was all about him then once I took him out he calmed right down. He's a big boy for 7 months. Both my granddaughter and him grew up together he is amazing with her. 
Well, I guess I'll write later it was an amazing day. Keep safe everyone.

Day 86 I can't sleep

I'm in way too much pain this morning or night or evening yet I don't know what time of day it is. 3:17 am is all I know. I hurt all over my arthritis is hurting the little bits that I have here and there but my back is killing me. I have pain shooting down my legs. I have taken my morning pills already hoping that it will help. My hands are even swollen to the point that my rings are bothering me. I was going to take them off but I can't. I did that feels better. I don't like taking them off but I had too. Hopefully, my meds will kick in soon and help. I'm starting to sweat because of the pain. I just wish I could lay down but that makes things even worse. I don't know if I'll be able to get my rings back on or not. Oh well, we will deal with that in the morning. I need to get some sleep because I'm going to see my granddaughter tomorrow so I'd like to have some sleep. If I could chop off my arms and legs I'd be fine. A cold ice pack would be good about now or a swimming pool would be nice. I'll try one more time to lie down and see if I can get to sleep. Keep safe.

Day 84 June 12 is our reopen day

I guess I should specify our stage 2 reopen day. Things will be a little back to normal. I've had a good sleep so far I should really not be writing and go back to sleep. I had a productive day I helped mow the lawn. I'm sore but at least I have reason to be sore. I'm going to pay for it in the morning. It's supposed to be another nice day I'm looking forward to it.

I love mowing the lawn I always have. It looks so nice a freshly mowed lawn. I think this Friday I'll restart my count or stop counting altogether. Oh, I'm sore every part of me. It should be interesting the reopening of the city can't wait. It makes me feel better mentally knowing that everything is going to be a new norm. I don't think that we will ever go back to the way things were. Well, I guess I best go to sleep and start a fresh day in the morning. Keep safe.

Day 83 Of the this awful life we live

I'm trying to keep positive but the walls feel like they are closing in. I guess that is why I try and spend so much time outside taking pictures to cheer myself up and see the beauty in the world around us during this lockdown. 
I have enjoyed this time of year with all the new flowers blossoming. Each day something new unfolds. Thank goodness the flowers have ignored the lockdown, quartine, or whatever you want to call this pandemic situation. I should really go back to sleep as I didn't sleep very well last night as usual. My mind is running a mile a minute. I should probably look into calling my psychiatrist and getting an appointment or phone appointment. Phone appointments are not the same. 
I still haven't heard from the neurosurgeon yet. I don't even know when they are starting their appointments back up. All I know is that I'm still suffering in pain with my back and would like some answers. When will this ever end? I know I keep asking this question but I don't seem to be getting any answer. It feels like a police state that we have found ourselves in worldwide. How did this happen? We have lost all freedom. Damn this pandemic. Enough for now I'll try and let go of this and just live my life and not think about it. Everyone just work on trying to keeping safe.

Day 82 continued

I'm tired and hot right now I could go back to sleep very easily right now. I had a rough night last night very congested and coughing lots. I have no ambition to do anything but sleep. I'm not sure what to do with myself today. It's a beautiful day out there. Any suggestions anyone? When I have some structure in my life things run a bit better and right now I don't have any. I'm tired of being home all the time even though I get out to take pictures. I need to go and take some pictures today of what I'm not sure. I'm going back to sleep'

Day 82 It is wearing thin on my end

Not having a good life right now. Trying to cut down on my activity on FB and friends social media can be very dangerous. If it wasn't for family and photos I wouldn't be on right now. Too much is happening in the world right now that isn't pleasing. My life was so much simpler when I didn't listen to the news. I need to back off and that is what I'm going to do. Why can't life go back to the way it was before all of this COVID business. Let us start this year over again and do it right. I'm tired and I really should go to sleep. I have been taking lots of photos lately and focusing on my web page. I haven't even been playing Aardwolf that much. I need to reevaluate my life and remake myself. I'm not happy with who I am right now I feel a change coming on. I'm just going to focus on family and a few very few close friends. Speaking of the family this is a picture that I took today of my great-nephew. Keep safe everyone.

Day 80 and no drawings

I don't know what is the matter with me I just have no interest in doing anything except work on my web page. I think I have it the way I want it right now. I have WordPress for dummies on my laptop and I should really read it instead of flying by the seat of my pants. I should really go to bed early tonight and get some sleep. I was up till 3 this morning working on my page. I have been taking lots of photos in the past little while and I'm trying to find someone to shadow for a photoshoot. Hubby isn't feeling well right now. We had turkey for dinner with dressing pre-stuffed and I think the dressing isn't agreeing with him. He felt the same way when we had it the last time. I want to go to bed but he wants me to sit with him for now I guess until he goes to sleep.
This was one of the pictures I took today at Tim Horton's. I guess he loves to ride with his owner on the e-bike. He goes everywhere with him. I had a good day taking photos which I enjoy most of them are flowers. People don't like to have their picture taken. I'm thirsty this evening I should take something for pain and lay down myself. I tried drawing this morning without any luck I need a break I should also finish reading my e-book I started from the library about 3 weeks ago if it hasn't expired by now. Well, I"m going to stop now I'll try and remember to write tomorrow. Hopefully, things will be going better in my life. I still haven't heard from the neurosurgeon. Keep safe everyone.

Day 78 WOW will this day ever end

My youngest son is being targeted over something that happened 8 years ago to the point of losing his job and being threatened. His wife says he's being used as a scapegoat. I just feel sick and want all of this to go away for him and his family. The problem is he speaks his mind and shouldn't. I just don't know what to say. I just wish I could make all this right for him. It's getting blown out of proportion. It's all wrong. Wow. Everyone keep safe.
