Just heard taxes are postponed until July 15th. Some good news amid the rest.

Live consciously....
I'm working more now at home than I did at work, by at least 50%. If that slows down, cleaning and decluttering the house, as well as finishing my spreadsheets for mystery shopping taxes, are tje things I need to do but don't want to.
Today?
- Sort cookbooks. Putting novelty, interesting and priceless old ones away for now.
- Begin to binge watch Jesse Stone.
- Re-arrange plants.

Tomorrow?
- Remove acrylic nails.
- Locate gloves. If the removal process is lengthy or I do a sucky job, I can always put on my 'corona gloves' if I have to go someplace. No one (besides you) will know...

I've been trying to summon my creative powers and write like I used to. When I went for a walk to the beach today, I was delighted to come back and see that my neighbor had a box out front of their house with books and craft projects free for the taking. I took a book and then put a craft kit and a coloring book in it's place. I picked up a book called 642 things to write about and I've already written 2 things. I'm actually thinking of picking back up on my blog and changing it's direction. I also found a cute rock that was painted like a fish and it's now my new quarantine friend. In the summer, we have people that paint shells and rocks and put them all over with a hashtag. This one was just from a couple of kids that came down here with their parents to self quarantine and actually thought about doing something fun and productive and something that could put a smile on someone's face (me! I smiled immediately when I found it!).

I will use the stove top smoker to smoke 2 pork chops. Then, into the oven for an hour or low heat, swaddled in BBQ sauce. I will then refrigerate them until tomorrow, to let the pulled pork "grow in flavor."

Also, I will try out the "new, improved" stand-up weed puller tool to clean all the weeds out of the front garden. Fortunately, this is a townhouse, so that is a small garden. (No grass for me!)

What a great Sunday for my gym rats. DD#3 has a friend who is a personal trainer for a well known gym. He was able to open up the gym for my family exclusively. Everything was wiped down with Clorox before closing in mid March but family is assuring me they're using the hand sanitizer pumps before using any equipment. Gave them Ziplocs of Clorox wipes anyway. Huge basketball court, indoor pool/sauna (not used by them thank goodness) and weight machines, dumb bells, etc. They are in all their glory PLUS I get some peace. Good Sunday everyone!
The new weed puller was a great success once I had spent about 5 minutes perfecting my aim.

Yes, it is all in the footwork, Jas.

Since I'm wanting to eat healthier for COVID-19 immune system and overall body strength/health, I only watch (never imitate the meals).
