Another hour and I may actually land at launch site, trying to think of another way to get where friend wants to be, and just not happening.

 

Guess it will be satellites and google maps when I return to civilization.

Hello out there in Porchlandia,

It’s gonna be hard to catch up with all the posts, but I’m going to give it a try.

It’s cool today, but will be warming up to the 80’s in the coming week. By June 5th we are moving out of the red phase to the yellow phase, one of the last counties in PA to make the move toward reopening. Some of the red counties are moving to green, but those are on the other side of the state.

So, I’m hoping to get to the hairdresser. She does it in her house and said I was welcome to come over, but I don’t want to get her in trouble, and besides, her husband has cancer and I don’t want to unknowingly bring anything in.

My dentist’s office called and left a message that they are going to open for the emergency list next week, and so I may be able to get my crown repaired soon. It was quite a shock when it fell out on April 14th.

I agree that there are way too many people giving up and are going about irresponsibly without masks/gloves.

@Frozenoem ...I'm sorry about your friend. It proves the point that we can't be too careful. You stay steady! I hope his flight is uneventful...no mask needed for him! Hope your fishing was successful. The salmon or trout would be my choice. 😺

@DaveMcK ...I did see the news footage of the Michigan flooding. It would be scary in normal times...worse in this pandemic. Prayers going out. And, next time you grill, I'll take a burger.

@LaDolceVita ...I'm so happy you will be able to get to your library! Haircut is still questionable for me, but I did get some hair cutting scissors. My hairdresser promised me she could fix any mistakes I might make. 😳

@LydiaN586309 ...Sometimes our brains have great ideas, but our bodies just laugh! Relax and enjoy!

@wvgirlforever ...You sound like me this AM except no heat wave here. Went to the grocery store first thing. My last haircut was February 26th!!!!

@wvgirlforever , @LydiaN586309 , @Frozenoem ...My grandmother's name was Lydie (Lie-dee).

I hope I got in everything I wanted to.

You all take care and stay safe. Enjoy your Memorial Day.

Hello 65* and sunny Sunday, yesterday was Salmon and Fiddleheads day for 3 meals. Needed my fix for awhile.

 

 

Re: Lydia as a fan of Groucho Marx , my mind always goes to Lydia , oh Lydia, that encyclopedia, no problem with the name. Same with Aunt in-law Lyda, mind games for pronunciations, she was a Lie Da.

 

Had to hit lake again to charge phone, the joy of off-grid and cigarette lighter above other battery. One for engine gas and one for accessories like electric trolling motor.

 

Will return to reality on Monday, for Memorial Day, just won’t be going anywhere near Arlington or DC and “The Wall”.

 

Besides I’m still avoiding crowds, masked or otherwise had oopsie with non masked 

patriot and he may have tripped over my cane, his friends said he was inebriated and I honestly have no idea how he landed in the water. I did assist with his returning to the dock.👍

 

There are days when I’m not made for playing in polite company and need to be away.

This week would be one for being away.

 

Monday will return to civilization, Tuesday need to make phone calls to find an Asian market with preserved lemon, one very specific brand. Called the entire eastern seaboard and couldn’t find, Covid-19 got in the way for every shop.

 

Hope all enjoy their weekend.

Good morning, @wvgirlforever !

I just checked my phone for the temperature here and it is already 78 degrees with a high of 84 predicted later.  Ugh!  I'm like you in that I don't like the extreme heat.  But I am glad for the warmer weather and the sunshine that is in full bloom right now. 

 

So I guess I'm gonna force my ever-widening backside (a side-effect of couch potato-itis) to get up and head to the garage.  At least I can get the backyard mowed today if I get started now.

 

And to answer your question about my name, it is pronounced "Lid-Dee-Ya."

 

Enjoy your Day,

Lydia

LydiaN586309  good morning,

 

I've already been on the move this morning.  Got up and made my way to the grocery store before it became too hot.  Summer has finally hit us here in Illinois & I'm not a big fan of the heat.  It's supposed to be 88 here today and will probably have some humidity along with it.  So thankful for air conditioning.  Things are starting to open up more here.  My beautician sent a text a couple of days ago and I now have an appointment for June 3.  Can't wait to get it cut.  My last haircut was March 12.  Another thing that I usually get done monthly is a pedicure.  Looking forward to that opening up as well.  There are obviously restrictions that need to be followed in both places.  I certainly don't have a problem with that.  No word yet on when the dentist will return to work.  A cleaning was canceled while we've been on stay at home orders.

 

How do you pronounce your name?  That was my grandma's name as well but she pronounced it as Ly (sounded like an I)da.

 

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend.😎34FCA876-EF38-4CA6-97FD-2122FC7067FA.jpg

Good Morning, Front Porchers!

good_morning._coffee_do_your_thang._9713605968.jpg

I was awake before dawn this morning.  I arose with great ambition to tackle the yard today--mowing, weeding, bush-trimming.  The works.  But after dutifully making my bed and doing a load of laundry, having a cup of green tea for medicinal purposes and a cup of cream and sweetener laced coffee, and eating a hearty bowl of oatmeal with raisins and Lactaid milk,  I've now slumped into my family room sofa and have been semi-consciously (dozing in and out) watching The Godfather on AMC.  (They're having a marathon today.)

 

What's wonderful about having several days off in a row is being able to totally R-E-L-A-X!  I don't have to cram a bunch of anything into a few free hours in a day before dashing off to work.  I can take on a project a day or none at all.  Wundabar!!!  And so, so far today, I've done laundry and that just might be it for today--checked off the TO DO LIST.

 

Anyway, @Frozenoem, I noted from your post that you had a day on the lake yesterday.  I hope the fishing was fruitful and if not at least relaxing.  So what was it for dinner--steak or fish?  Either one, I'm sure was good.  Nothing like home cooking especially when fresh off the grill. Yum.

 

And @LaDolceVita, you gave me some chuckles as I read about your trial and error experiences with your face masks.  I, too, have found some sizing and fitting problems with my masks.  But as I say about many things, "Something's better than nothing."  Congrats on getting your hair cut.  I know you must feel a little "light-headed" now.  lol lol lol   Are you laughing?  It's been so long since I last had a hair cut/styling, that I'd rather say, "just forget about it!"coiffeur-enfant-ciseaux-cheveux-peigne-.jpg Lastly, about the library.  Truly you are fortunate that your library is re-opening under any circumstance.  Ours have not even given a date as to when they might re-open.  But I can hardly wait as reading is one of my favorite pastimes.  

 

@n566192l, where are you?  Like Froze and LaDolceVita, I've wondered how you are doing.  So drop by if you're up to it--just to let us know you're okay. OK?

 

@sunluvngal  and  @wvgirlforever  and  @DaveMcK , and all the other porchers out there, good morning to you all and have a wonderful and peaceful Sunday.

 

Down with the pandemic and Up With People!!!

@LydiaN586309   Great news on your test, I have been watching your posts for results.  @catwoman   when I had my haircut the operator and I both wore masks.  She checked my temperature when I walked in.  I think there is a number limit on patrons.   No walk ins in this particular shop, all by appointment.

83* and sunny here, with dandelions appearing after first mulch of year.


@LaDolceVita 

 

Just for you or anyone else, no fog masks.

hyperlitemountaingear.com
8004649208

 

White polyester no fog masks, they sell in packs of 5. Black fly season, and sunglasses protection. With no fogging.
Have wire in nose piece for tight seal on bridge of nose.Washable and reusable.👍

 

Polyester must have changed since 60’s, I can breathe through mask. Don’t have issues like with Nehru still wouldn’t attempt smoking near one though.🤣 Reason for all of those little pinholes on the jacket I guess.

 

Re: Friend he’d like the affordability of his next flight here, just not the manner of flight. He can come in carry-on luggage with documentation.

Washington state to Maine. Hated flying in life, his kids hate driving.

 

@n566192l - tempted to call her last night then stuff happened.

Perhaps later as moods change.

 

Had to call friends last night also in lockdown to find that one was in lockdown at her condo, and computer hacked. Joy of remembering where she was hunkered down, calling management and getting message delivered to her, to call me. And then sending emails off to rest of chain.

 

She was Maggi (Emty) of campers from AARP back in early 2000’s. Not to be confused with Maggie O’Doyle.

 

My back and ribs are forecasting rain in a week, love arthritis.

 

@sunluvngal 

 

Behold rollcall! We live, how life continues, despite Coronavirus.

Many have formed virtual and real friendships through the years of talking and griping, about a wide range of subjects, and the ever present weather or whatever.🤣

 

Need caffeine, New neighbor at door suggests he’s locked out of house. Hobby of 40 years is required, 2 hours to nearest locksmith. Gotta find a Bobby pin, who locks doors.🤣😆 We all pack heat, which keeps crooks antsy up here. Or else we tend to hide a spare somewhere, try to remember where after 20-30 years can be a pita.
