I am bored some of the time, but I know it is going to get much worse. I try to throw a ball to Rocky several times a day so that he gets some exercise, but my throwing arm is getting a little sore!
My tomato plants are looking good - some even have flowers on them - but I'm sure they are too close togther. It's not like I could take one out of each row and plant it somewhere else - I'd have to re-space all of them in the row. I think I can get the metal tomato cages in place for each one, but it will be a close fit. I don't know but it doesn't look right. If someone comments that I should re-space them then I will do it! It is going to bug me the whole summer if I don't take care of it now. DARN!
I can't believe how much better I'm doing since walking a mile on the treadmill every day this week. I will walk a mile tomorrow, which will make 6 miles for the week, skip Sunday as a day of rest, and then try to up the mileage a bit next week and every week thereafter until I get to a good workout.
My exercise floor mat came today and I wanted to set it out and see how comfortable it is. Rocky got in the way and wanted to get on it at the same time. I suppose it will do fine. It is very thick but very firm at the same time. I have to figure out a way to keep him off it.
I had to get a new vacuum cleaner as the old one was never very good. I looked on line for one made in the USA, and darned if I didn't find one. It's made by the company in the US that used to be Electrolux, and now looks to be affiliated with Hoover. (I'm not quite sure about that, but it is made in the US, and I'm happy to note that Hoover still is. ) That isn't to say the parts aren't from all over the world but at least someone here has a job putting it all together.
I have a lot of projects in the planning stages (meaning I think about them as I am going to sleep at night!). I have to do something about the deck and handrail, which is full of splinters. I have a really deep splinter in the palm of my hand that I haven't been able to get out. I guess I will try to sand the wood and then stain it. That's a job that will probably take me all summer just doing the sanding! If this quarantine is going to last much longer then it's a good thing I have several projects to work on.
Have as good a weekend as you can. I'd like to know what everyone else is doing to pass the time (if you are under quarantine). I cherish the comments I get on the blog, as it is the next best thing to a face-to-face conversation during these times.
