He’s back! – That snake that got away in April was back swimming in my pond. By the time I got the stuff out he had slithered under the rocks. Getting him would have required dismantling the flat stones around my pond and I wasn’t up for it. I gave the fish and frogs some advice to avoid him. Not sure what he eats but I don’t want it to be my pond babies.
Hide the package – I saw a hilarious video of a FedEx delivery guy throwing a package to the front porch only it ended up on the porch roof. Later that day I received an email that my package was delivered by UPS. I had to check around because it wasn’t on my porch where it usually is. Our porch roof would be a tough throw. This driver put it directly in front of my garage door where I would have driven over it. This was clothing in a bag. Maybe he was worried that a porch pirate would get it. The FedEx guy who delivers my Chewy packages (cat supplies) puts them in back of our grill which is on the side of the garage doors. Finding your packages is like a scavenger hunt these days.
Mouse motel – We are moused out. After another two were re-homed this week I’m wondering if there is a neon sign advertising our superior hotel accommodations. It’s a good thing that we don’t get all worked up or we’d spend most of our time on table tops.
Our maiden voyage – This week we ate out at a restaurant for the first time since the lock down. I wasn’t sure how it would go. Would my germaphobia take over and make me freak out? It went well. The restaurant required masks if you were anywhere but your table. You needed reservations so they could control the crowd. We ate outside under roofing. The weather was warm but it cools down by suppertime making it pleasant. No one was near us. Service was fast and food was good. We went on a non-busy night and would do that again.
On that thought – My gym has been open a week but I haven’t ventured there. I drove by at my normal time. There were about ten cars. That’s less than there used to be but more than I thought. Most of the people who go at that time are retired and we old retirees are more cautious. Maybe I’ll try it in a week or two. I miss my gym routine. The walking place isn’t open early enough for the senior walkers either. You can walk there after 10 a.m. but I’m usually well into my day by then. I’ll keep walking outside in my neighborhood. Baby steps.
So how was your week?
