Just another Sunday


See more sunflowers 



With everything going on in the world - my youngest son, Navy will be 36 on Friday. Wow. So I would like us all to get together either on the day or a day after - either go out fo eat or I'll cook something but, in all honesty, I'd rather go out to eat. I'm going to campaign hard on going out. 

Yesterday we went out to eat inside, for the first time and it was great. Our favorite Mexican restaurant put up one-inch-thick hanging partitions between the booth. It felt cozy and private and safe. I don't want to be a "karen" but I did see one couple come in without masks. We're supposed to wear them as we walk through to our tables. I'm protective of this particular small restaurant and would not want to see them get closed on account of some unthinking people. 

It was so nice to sit and people-watch as we ate - it just was nice to pretend we are free again. We still haven't gone to the movies yet. It did lift my spirits and so far today I'm feeling not so down. This week I plan to go to the fitness center on Monday and Thursday. Tues I have a pedicure at the beauty school. 

I have been enjoying all the sunflowers I planted in the summer. You can check them out here. 

The weather is much milder now and our air quality has cleared up so I can go outside to sit. 

On Friday we got together with some friends for Rosh Hashanah - I've noticed we've all gained weight. I still fit in my shorts and my jeans, but I noticed they are tighter than they should be. I never had weight issues until menopause and while I try and battle it, sometimes I want to just give up. 

I scanned the necessary documents to email back to the congressional office here locally - 

I battle boredom and mild depression if I don't try and find some busy work for myself. So now I am making a list of suggestions - not a "to-do" list but merely suggestions on things I can do. It's getting myself up to do it that is a problem for me. I just am tired (boredom) and in a major funk and have absolutely no motivation. I'm hoping that my sons birthday will motivate me to do something. Clean the house, bake...just be happy again.

I still LOVE my new haircut. I wash it and towel dry it and I'm good to go and that is the way I like it. I fluff it with my fingers to bring out the natural curls. I am HAPPY about that.

  1. Its amazing how a simple thing we took for granted like going out to eat would be so satisfying once we could do it again! Sounds like a lovely time there!! I have no interest to see a movie these days (and its not about the virus and any fear of it) but just the whole Hollywood scene and the fact that most overpaid actors tend to lean toward the left. Kind of like me not watching sports, I don't particularly want to give my hard earned money to any actor that supports BLM. Definitely you have to do something special for your son's birthday! Too many celebrations were put on hold during this whole mess; time to get out and start living again!

  2. I want to go on vacation really bad. I've eaten at a few local restaurants. And people watching is my all time favorite activity. So it is good to get out. I vote, you all go out to eat. lol

    Every year, I vow to plant sunflowers and zinnias. Maybe next year. I'm glad the air is better and a good haircut is the best. I remember all the work I used to put into my hair. Now, it is wash and wear. In some ways, my hair looks better than any other time of my life except it is white.

  3. Dining in again is nice. With the restrictions it feels safe, not sure many restaurants won't still go out of business, sad, hopefully they will somehow survive. I plan to go back to the gym in a week. Bowling started last week, the masks are annoying, but you do get used to them.

    1. Mask wearing will be easier as the temperatures drop. When it gets cold, we may even like wearing them - they'll keep us warm.

  4. So happy to have a new blog to read. I can get depression also, but I have to say I am never bored. Okay maybe I am bored with what I need to do, which is always too much.

    1. The whole objective to having our babies is for them to grow up. Darn, I wish I felt happy about it. Makes me sad if I over-think it. I do remember those sweet times and they are precious to me.
