Getting in shape for what, I can't say. I'm loving the treadmill, and rather than overdo it and then not use it consistently, I've been walking 5-10 minutes at a time throughout the day, and averaging about a mile a day. I plan to raise it now every day and keep track of how I'm doing. I think I feel better, although it's not translating to working harder!
I had started a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle that I just couldn't do more than get the outline of the puzzle. My eyes just don't see those tiny variations in color any more. Jeannie gave me a puzzle I had given to her kids, which is 300 pcs. I started on it last night, worked on it now and then throughout today, and will no doubt finish it tomorrow. At least I know where I stand and what my limits are.
So I have all my tomatoes planted and I'm sure I have them too close together. I hate to dig some of them up - does anyone have suggestions? Should I or shouldn't I replant them? Tomorrow I hope to plant marigolds around the perimeter of the beds - that will keep the destructive insects away, I hope. I think I'm going to plant a couple of squash seeds, and then maybe a couple more in another week. Keeping Rocky out of the garden is going to be my problem this year - he hasn't harmed anything - just checks it out and leaves his footprints.
And speaking of the boy, I feel so terrible for him. He wonders why we walk out to the mailbox and then come right back to the house. Why don't we take walks anymore. I've been throwing a ball for him to catch which helps him exercise, but it's not like a nice walk through the neighborhood.
This is the second day in a week that I've stayed in pajamas all day long. There isn't much incentive to get dressed since I'm not going anywhere.
How is everyone else coping? Is your area under quarantine, and if so, how is that interpreted? All my good wishes go to the people of New York City and surrounding areas. It looks pretty certain that we will all eventually be in that same boat! Take care everyone, and if you have any tips for staying sane while being in virtual isolation, I'd love to hear them. Thank goodness for the internet that allows us to stay in touch.
