I've about had all I can take, but there is no end in sight for a long time. I should count my blessings and hope the virus stays away from me. I am probably not as careful as I should be, but when a package is delivered to my door I just want to open it asap. Same with going to the mailbox, but I guess I should wear disposable gloves at least.
I've been spending a lot of time on my 3rd garden box. The grass and weeds are so tall and thick, and I work for a while pulling them out and then have to come in for a break. I started yesterday and probably have 2/3 of it finished now. The outlook for food prices is so dire that I think I should try to grow more than tomatoes and squash. I have seeds for carrots, lettuce, and mustard that I might try to plant a row of each. I have other seeds as well, and a 4th garden plot if I decide to use it, but I don't want to overwhelm myself with gardening as the weather improves and things start really growing. I wish I could get to the hardware store for more garden soil and supplies, but I understand they won't deliver the soil unless it is paid for at the store. It evidently comes from a separate company and not through their regular ordering system. At least that was my take on it, and I could certainly be getting it wrong and all mixed up. But they don't deliver soil unless you come to the store and pay for it first.
Poor Rocky just can't get used to isolation. I take him with me (on a leash) to get the mail, and yesterday he wanted to pull me across the street so I followed him. He was all excited thinking we were going on our normal walk, finally, but I only went a couple of houses up the street, crossed over and came back. I had a very unhappy dog on my hands, and I was smacking my head wondering what in the world made me go outside of my invisible fence! I woke up several times during the night thinking "What if I inhaled the virus while walking?" I understand it can stay in the air for up to 3 hours, so it wouldn't be impossible for it to spread that way.
I'm getting the most I can out of my treadmill. I started off easy - about a mile a day for 6 days. This week I'm aiming for about 1.3 miles and will up it accordingly each week. Having the treadmill in my own house is terrific, and I can walk for a while, stop, and then get back to it later. I definitely noticed a difference in how I feel almost immediately. I still haven't put the floor exercise mat down because I'm not ready to deal with a nosy dog.
