SELF CARE INVENTORY_MONDAY


today was bright and sunny and perfect temperature, so i went on a bike ride,

then visited my elderly friend who had a HUGE box of goodies for me...2 cans salmon, wild caught, 2 boxes of cheerios, peanut butter, BUNCHES of can stuff for the church, non fat milk solids for my coffee when I run out of the cremora...all KINDS of good stuff...cheese, real cheese, a big block of it, yea, I was a happy camper, LOL

we had a great visit..her landlord, my handyman (I've been friends with these people at least 20 years)  he fired up the Barbie and we had chicken , sausage,  great BBQ, neighbors across the way from them came,  we were handing out hot food to our neighbors...It almost felt like quaranteen was over with, but we all KNOW each other and we Did practice proper hygiene....I had my mask on most of the time, washed my hands a lot, etc.

then when I got home, roommate hit me up for her haircut...I said  "haircut in exchange for some dusting in the living room"  she agreed....

i took care of me by having FUN!!! enjoying companionship of my friends, with care, of course...none of us go anywhere, so like the risk is low at most...AND we hung out outside in the sunny weather

for a brief time, OUR world was "normal"  and we savored it....lots of laughter, jokes, teasing, I love Linda, and I have a deep caring for Ricky the handyman,  hes an alcoholic...I had to find another guy to do my work because I can't depend on him..Luckily, the stuff i've needed, I can do myself....but yea, I'll always care about him , I hate the disease, but I care about the human being....
