Barbie- I am still masking. I probably will through at least June. It looks as if my state will be lifting it's indoor masking policy for children on July 1. I will be attending a few outdoor graduation parties this summer; but depending on how crowded and how well spread out people are, I will be ready to mask up. I am not vaccinated. I don't plan to get it until they can assure me of it being a vaccination that lasts at least four-five years (as most good vaccinations do). I don't get the flu shot. IMO an annual shot is not a vaccination. I am not antivax; that is just me.

Tina your sheet pan dinners sound like something I should try. I do what you do with brown rice, and it sure comes in handy for combining with the protein and veggies of the day for a quick healthy meal. Alas too often I opt for the convenience of a Lean Cuisine…

Barbara: I can’t imagine any of the males I know would willingly have a mammogram. I can’t imagine them willingly have a testiogram, either. :noway:Heather: Your post made me wonder whether the covid virus would live on paperback books long enough to infect someone. Our public library subscribes to “Library to Go.” Amazon is a part of the process. You can checkout electronic books owned by your participating public library through Amazon. I’ve been reading many books on my computer & phone using this service. You have to have a current library card with your participating library in order to check out the electronic version of the books you want to read. This has helped to save my sanity. I love to read. Terri: So sorry you were sick. I agree that complacency is our enemy. We still wear masks at the grocery store for our own safety and that of others. Having proof of vaccination has made it possible for some restaurants to reopen in our town. We photographed our proof of vaccinations and have the photo on our mobile phones. We are able to show the photo when going in the door to the restaurant. Everyone is safer that way and the restaurant is back in business after well over a year. Machka: NSTEMI risk factors would apply to both of my parents, who died many years ago from smoking cigarettes. They were chain smokers who would light a new cigarette from the previous one. DH has been an insulin dependent diabetic since before we met. He was a smoker when we first met. i was never a smoker, and refused to date him until after he quit. It has all worked out well for us in the longterm. Allie: We have two little free libraries within walking distance of our house. I love them. Sometimes I find a gem to read and sometimes I put in books that I no longer want. :bigsmile:Bananas: I use Vitamin D3 to improve my mood and overall health. It has been nicknamed the sunshine vitamin. Good luck to you. Machka: Do I remember correctly that your brother is in Louisiana? They’ve had a load of weather problems this past year. I hope they’re okay. Our son’s good friend since college days lives in New Orleans. We haven’t heard any news about his family in quite a while. :ohwell:Tracey: Snow has been rare here the past couple of years. We had some before Thanksgiving. It got lots of news coverage. Snow here was on the ground about two days. Luckily for us, we have a car that has four-wheel drive and we were easily able to get to the grocery store. It is a good snow memory. Rebecca: That house reminds me of Astoria. I love seeing the old Victorian homes. Allie: I hope you’re feeling better. Margaret: I am sorry you’ve had leg cramps. Have you tried tums? I’ve used them when I’ve had foot cramps and they’ve helped. DH has used them for leg cramps. They help him, too. :flowerforyou:
We are having a rainy day and I am happy to be warm and dry inside.Katla in rainy NW Oregon

Did a body pump DVD today. The plan for tomorrow is to do Cathe Friedrich’s Afterburn DVD
After exercise went for a walk around the block. Around the block and to the main road and back is almost 1-1/2 miles. I found that I can do that in about 30 minutes
Rebecca – I’m right with you. My food tastes have changed, too. Now if you offered me a ripe, juicy peach or a piece of pizza, I’d choose the peach. Used to be I’d have chosen the pizza.
Terry – so glad you’re feeling better
Vince went to get his allergy shot. For the first time he could go into the office. He was telling the one receptionist that by law you can’t ask someone for proof of vaccination, you really can’t even ask them if they’ve been vaccinated. The receptionist behind her agreed with him. Thank you HIPPA <sarcastic> I agree, we need to stop thinking only of ourselves and start thinking of others, too.
LisaKinVA – YEAAA for the scale moving.
M – so sorry about your brother
Vince has been talking about getting a new bowling ball (like he really needs it!). Well, for father’s day I would like to get him a ball but have a picture of Kyle Busch put on it. I called Joe Gibbs racing and found out that all the pictures of KB are copyrighted, so I asked a friend of mine (if I said I wanted to watch a NASCAR race, that would really send up red flags) to help me so he’s going to try to get a picture for me.
Claram – welcome!
Allie – how horrible for you! Glad you’re feeling better now
katla – we’re pretty sure one of our cats has some dementia. She used to be fanatically meticulous. We NEVER needed to give her a bath. She’d spend 2 minutes in the litter box, then 5 covering it up. Now she has mats and she started pooping at the base of our of our cat trees. You can see her looking like “I have to go to the bathroom, but where do I go? The litter box is in the mud room, but where? Or maybe should I go at the cat tree?”. She’s just so confused. Then she started peeing on the cat tree. That isn’t at all like her. So we put a litter box next to the cat tree, and she hasn’t gone on the tree at all. I just feel so bad for her. She just doesn’t know where to go. So sorry about your dog. When we go to the vet, we have to call them from the car, they come out and get the pet while we wait in the car, then bring your pet back. Frustrating!
After the doctor’s, stopped at the Salvation Army then home and made some cookies for Steve to take home. I like to have as much as possible done ahead of time.
Since it’s fairly cloudy outside and it’s supposed to be warmer as the week goes on, I may string a little popcorn.
Vince is pretty upset. The vet got back to him (he’d sent an email about how Bonnie’s tumor is back). The vet said that she doesn’t like that it’s come back so soon. Honestly, when I was petting her, I felt a lump but it was more like feeling a mat than a lump. Vince is thinking that we will have to have her put down, I just say to wait and see.
Strung popcorn for about an hour. I think I’m probably done for this year. Then worked on the puzzle. Getting there. Now I think I’ll go for a walk.

So sorry about the pets! It really stinks when they get sick since they can't tell us what's wrong.
Was able to go to a porch concert over the weekend. The weather was unpleasant, but the concert was nice. It was nice to get out and see a group of people together enjoying a live concert.Cooking for one-What I've been doing is making things like sheetpan dinners, where you toss a couple of seasoned chicken thighs on a tray with some root veggies and bake them. I also do some prep and assemble food. I cut and roasted a sweet potato yesterday and have about 4 servings worth of sweet potato that I can match up with avocado, egg, bacon, etc. Perhaps I'll cut it and use it in an egg or tofu scramble. I bake a package of bacon and have cooked bacon ready to go. I roast tomatoes and put them in the fridge as toppers or to put in a salad. I also make dishes that I can split and freeze half and have the other over a couple of days. I have also made a pot of rice and split it into portions and freeze it. The freezer is my friend. While it's not cooking all at once, it allows me to be creative with the various parts and I feel like I'm cooking and it's healthy.HIPAA and vaccination questions-I don’t know if this is state by state, but where I live, it is OK for a company to ask for your vaccination status and even for proof of it. I suspect if you get fired shortly thereafter for either not having been vaccinated or not showing proof, you have a lawsuit, if you want it. I think there will be a lawsuit and after that point it will likely fall under HIPAA privacy (HIPAA, for those not in the U.S. is Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act which deals with healthcare related privacy among other things). For now, companies can ask.
Life seems to be moving toward more normal. My mood is not. Feeling kind of down.
