Happy Mother's Day, this is certainly one that is sure to be different for many mothers. We just completed week #8 of social distancing. I lost a day last week as I was sure that Saturday was only Friday until I looked at my phone. Are your days just blending together lately?
Over the past nearly 20 years it seems I've either spent Mother's Day in Aruba or at a timeshare by the water - reading and relaxing. This Mother's Day Aruba, isn't open to tourists from other countries and as a result, they have had fewer than 100, COVID-19 cases in that country when I checked last week. The timeshare here that we have spending the last several years at on Mother's Day isn't available either because of the virus. So we are home, thinking of the mothers who are no longer with us and sending the other mothers we love, heartfelt wishes that one day soon we will hug each other and be together again.
It's been a partially cloudySunday with high 50's to 60 degree temps . I had to bring my mother's day plants in that last few evenings as it reached the lows 30s here.

Currently Reading/or/listening to:
(quirky and enjoyable so far)
( dark, uncomfortable yet, hard to put down)
Honestly, I didn't watch much television (well I sat there while it was on but wasn't invested in what was on except for one movie - (1991) Julia Roberts in Sleeping With the Enemy. I had seen it before but forgot some of it and loved it; very well done...she's a young wife with an wealthy, abusive, controlling husband. She comes up with a plan to escape by fakig her own death. Have you seen it?
Exercise and other highlights…
Well I tried to walk three times this week but could only do 15 minutes each day. About 15 years ago I tore my meniscus but, fortunately it wasn't a bad tear that would have required surgery. Over the years it's actually been great but, started acting up last Sunday. Icing it has caused more pain and anti-inflammatories haven't helped all that much so I've been taking it easy and the next plan is trying to eat healthier, avoiding sugar and processed foods. We'll see if I can avoid seeing a doctor.
Today’s To Do List…
Well the healthy eating starts tomorrow as a Mother's Day Dairy Queen drive-through treat is in store with perhaps some take out later on.
Think summer, cool, crisp linen - always hard to buy online but most everything I buy from J Jill fits me perfectly and their clothes are made to last. It arrived a few days ago and I love it.
