  1. We had our first 80 degree day of the year here yesterday, and today it's 60 and mostly cloudy with a chance of some thunderstorms. It appears the long winter may finally be gone for good now, or at least until next October anyway 🙂
  2. I'm trying out my new little 2 quart slow cooker/crock pot with some Little Smokies and barbecue sauce. Man it's starting to smell good in here right now 🙂 Also got a new electric skillet that I'll try out sometime this weekend. I really need to eat more...my weight has dropped down under 120, and the only way I'll eat more these days is if I simplify my cooking so that I'll be more motivated to cook. Anyway I'm loving this little slow cooker...I was worried it would be too small but it's perfect for me and fits well in my (small) kitchen. And now I'm rambling haha...I'm just excited to start cooking actual meals again.
  3. Yeah I think it's such a fascinating show and Attenborough is the best. My favorite is probably Blue Planet but they're all good, and I just love anything to do with wildlife.
  4. The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Haha I love laughing...is there any better feeling in the world? 🙂
  5. Planet Earth: Frozen Planet episode "Autumn" on BBC America.
  6. Oh it's great I love that show! I watched it quite a bit in the 90s and now I DVR the episodes on a channel called Comet on weekends...funny stuff for sure 🙂
  7. Wow @evalynn! I'm glad you're ok!
  8. Science is right --- coronavirus ain't cool --- too much death
  9. Mac and Cheese (again) --- Not bad though...
  10. Planet Earth II - episode "Mountains", on the BBC America channel.
  11. Remember to always wash your soap before using it 😄
  12. Ha, I did notice the Ancient Aliens marathon and it might have triggered a thought of V in my brain 🙂
  13. OH I forgot that I have the complete V miniseries on dvd! The original one from the 80s. Gonna dust it off and start watching it tonight 🙂
  14. It was a cool and wet day, about 50 degrees with light rain. Looking ahead, it's supposed to be in the 60s with occasional rain showers for the next week.
  15. So my sister has been sick with suspected COVID-19 for going on two weeks now. She's a doctor and I guess she must have caught it at work before starting to work from home. She's quarantined at home in her room away from her husband and kids (her husband now sleeps in their living room) , probably the most alone time she's had in years haha. She wants to wait on testing until after she recovers and then get an antibody test. She'll be ok I'm sure and is finally starting to feel better except for a bad cough, but her fever is down. I trust that if she gets worse or starts having breathing issues that she'll go to the hospital. And then over in West Virginia, my brother's fiance managed to get a COVID-19 test and tested negative. That didn't surprise me at all as I knew her symptoms were anxiety and depression related. She hasn't been right since their trip to L.A. last month to visit her dying father, who has since passed away. I really feel for her. Here in this house my parents and I are still healthy. I've totally lost track of time and all the days blend together. There's lots more on my mind but I'm becoming very introverted lately.
  16. I'm so sorry you had a sad birthday @watalife 😟 I hope a kitty comes into your life soon.
  17. It was a cold and snowy Easter, and it's even colder and snowier today. 20 degrees and snowing ❄️
  18. Went out for the first time in 9 days to get some stuff at the grocery store. The last time I went I had an anxiety attack before going, but this time I was able to handle it without my fear of illness getting out of control. I wore one of the t-shirt masks I made, and it worked well in that it didn't fall off or suffocate me. I made them based on the surgical style masks with 4 strings that tie around the back. My dad had also used one without issues a couple days ago. At the store I'd say about two-thirds of the shoppers and employees were wearing some form of mask. There were still lots of bare shelves and I wasn't able to find everything we need, so I may have to venture out again in a few days. I just don't want my dad going out anymore. We had a big spike in new cases here yesterday. This afternoon I'm just relaxing, drinking lots of tea and watching some tv.
  19. I'm sorry I missed your post yesterday...so a belated Happy Birthday to you @Atra! 🎂 Stay safe and healthy man! 🙂
  20. 70 degrees and sunny...very pleasant.
