I often wonder if this is real, or if it's all just a bad dream. Since I am alone with Rocky, I've quit being so paranoid about constantly disinfecting every surface. I figure they are my germs and I am ok with that. I do wash my hands a lot more often, but I don't think I've sprayed Lysol for a couple of days!
I had my son's dog over the weekend when he and his family got their house ready for viewers, as well as they went looking at a couple of houses themselves. I hope they pick something closer than where they are now, but of course, it's not my choice.
Their dog, Sammy, and my Rocky usually kept an uneasy truce, but by the final day I think they were both tired of each other. Sammy was delighted to jump into their car when they came to pick him up, and Rocky has gone back to his mostly sweet self. The only real problem I have with Rocky is that he sometimes chews something he shouldn't, and it is always an item that I don't want messed up.
I'm still walking a mile on my treadmill nearly every day. I miss a day about once every two weeks which isn't bad, in my book! I also try to walk Rocky twice a day and we both benefit from that. I don't walk him far - usually just about 6-8 blocks, but twice a day adds up plus he has the big backyard to play in.
The garden is coming along and I have quite a few small green tomatoes already. I just shake my head when I look at the garden I carefully planted, and in which seeds from last year germinated and are growing vigorously. The problem is that I'm not sure exactly what the plants are. I can recognize swiss chard, and I have a couple of other varieties that look like salad greens. I'm going to pick a bunch of leaves this afternoon and make myself a nice salad for supper, and hope the greens taste okay.
Not much to talk about these days - hope everyone is staying safe and sane! This is really a test of sanity for me.
