Routines and COVID cleaning

Monday, July 06, 2020

Nothing much new here. We are in our routine, some sort of morning exercise, a morning project or two, lunch, some Netflix or other viewing, afternoon project (a nap for Ken emoticon ) then dinner.

I've started swimming a few times a week if I can get a lane. The gym is being pretty good about adjusting to the ever changing rules and orders, and now everyone has to wear a mask even while exercising. I'm still not comfortable being inside there. But the pool has been wonderful. I'm hoping they take my suggestion of noting if people show up for their reserved lane because lots are not showing up and not canceling.I feel for those staff at the front desk.

I was up early to get my lane time so was surprised that I got a few projects done after I got back. I was shocked to find out how dirty the grout on the bathroom floor was - I had some grout cleaner and man does that stuff work! The bathroom floor looks totally different. Meaning, CLEAN. I'm doing the other bathroom now. I doubt this will be a regular part of my routine as it involves being on hands and knees to scrub but once every 10 years or so.... emoticon

That's what COVID has done to these habits I guess. I also recently scrubbed some of the blind and window tracks (also quite filthy).

Today I rode my bike just on my own. Ken has strained his ankle again so has been off his feet for a few days. Lots of folks out so I had to be careful of the groups especially the kids.

I saw my sister briefly the other day, had to drop off my nephew's birthday card and some $$. They were planning a get together, but inside so I wasn't comfortable. Their crew has other circles and they also went to church recently so I wasn't taking any chances.

We just finished watching Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu. I signed up for the month free, because of the extra Alone episodes, and it was great. I had read the book but thought the production was better, just my opinion.

Random: here are the girls napping. They tend to squabble a lot but periodically they sleep together.

    I love the kitty pic! Our girls squabble, too, but then I catch them in moments of affection, when they look like they're kissing, and have to say "Awww."

    You watched Little Fires Everywhere! I was so gripped by that! It was well done. Reese Witherspoon is very good at playing b***y, well-dressed snobs! I trust you've watched Big Little Lies, where she played a similar part? Both of those series were so addictive (I binge-watched) and both quite disturbing, but I found the ending of Little Fires Everywhere a little more hopeful. Both really, really good.

    Pretty kitties. So peaceful when they sleep. Our 2 cats like to do sneak attacks on one another, but it all seems pretty amicable so far.

    I guess we have to find the good in this disruption in our lives. I'd take clean grout and window blinds! Good for you!

    That regular exercise is giving you the energy to accomplish all those things. Plus making you much more able to overcome sickness if it comes your way!

    As with all things, there are some good....the extra time we've had past couple months have meant ALOT of cleaner closets etc. Our little thrift shop hasn't reopened but know the manager has accepted some large donations that will bring in cash when we are back in business. Take care & enjoy days ahead.

    Your kitties and mine must be "all feline"... Prisoner and Rubia also squabble at times, but do the synchronized sleeping thing at times as well!

    I'm going to have to look into Little Fires Everywhere... since I have invested in Hulu again. I got irked with YouTubeTV when they just hiked their prices. I had switched to them from Hulu when Hulu last hiked their own prices. If they are similar in price, I'll pick the one that's a little less, as the services are close enough!

    Had to giggle at the "every ten years or so", 'cause it sounds like my general cleaning schedule!

    Stay safe and well out there!
