2020 Project 365 – Week Thirty-two

Here is an allergy med update (I know you are on the edge of your seat). The Allegra didn’t bother me too much, although I did notice feeling a little drowsy. But it was no more effective than the Claritin I’ve been taking. Tonight I started taking the Xyzal. I have ten doses to try. We shall see how it goes. It will certainly be a banner day when I’m done talking about this topic!

Sunday, August 2nd                                                               
The only picture today – we finally remembered to flip our Otis the Sheepadoodle calendar to August. This month we have Goobers & a Raisinette. Ha!

Monday, August 3rd                            
Dr. M cooked the jicama – it’s pretty good as fries!

Tuesday, August 4th                                                                  
Yes, it’s another new mask, plus a throwback picture of my foot in motion.

Wednesday, August 5th                                                          
Our flowers have been getting battered by almost daily afternoon thunderstorms. Still pretty though.

Thursday, August 6th        
I had to run an errand at lunch & got behind this car. Made me laugh!

Watching baseball in the evening. This is Bo Bichette (Toronto Blue Jays), and every time the announcer said his name I thought he was saying Boba Fett. There’s no Star Wars in baseball!

Friday, August 7th                                                                      
I think Dr. M got lost & ended up in Texas…

Saturday, August 8th                 
Morning glories! Did you guys notice that last week I called the morning glory a petunia? I kept meaning to go back & fix it, but at this point it’s just going to stay wrong.

I needed to sew something (I had a couple of masks that were too big, so I was sewing the ear bands closed a little tighter), and I pulled out my ancient sewing kit. I noticed this metal gadget that I hadn’t paid attention to before & was googling it to see what the heck it is, but Dr. M was faster. It’s a bodkin, which you can use to pull drawstrings or elastic through clothes. I used it to hold the elastic bands together so I could sew.

Does it feel like the world is just getting crazier and crazier? I mean, we do have an awful lot going on, and now we have to worry about the post office on top of everything else. I really hope that we can overcome all the things, elect some decent folks in November, and then survive until January. If I weren’t living through it I would think this was an excellent plot for a Bond movie. How are you feeling about the state of things?


  1. That license plate made me chuckle, too. Sometimes I think about what I'd get if I wanted Vanity Plates. It makes for interesting reverie.

    The Post Office situation is more blatant corruption, and I'm astonished and outraged on a daily basis. And sickened. I can only handle national news once a day, but stay informed. And really, REALLY hope that Karma is a real Thing.

    I am thankful for the many Joys I have in my life to balance it all out. And I do what I can for The Blue Wave. Keeps me sane!

  2. I might try that. did he peel the jicama first?

    Mar had one of the first baseball games on and it made me laugh with the crowd noise track and the empty stadium.

  3. Well! I didn't have North Carolina earthquake on my 2020 Bingo card, but I see you're about halfway between Charlotte and Sparta, and I suspect you might have felt that 5.1 this morning!

    I have no idea what Blogger's up to, but your post arrived via email again today. Hooray! Maybe with all the hoopla about the USPS, Blogger decided to move into the breach and up its game. Who knows?

    Now I'm going to have to go look up the phrase "Odds bodkins" and see if it's related to your little gadget!

  4. Boba Fett -- ha! Who is Otis the Sheepadoodle? Is this a dog you know? Maybe I should sell Olga calendars!

    Be happy you're getting rainstorms. I'd love some rain here.

    Re. the state of things: Not good! I have feelings of incipient dread.

  5. I find that rotating those three drugs is more effective.

  6. The madness of people interviewed on t.v. saying the Covid virus is just being manufactured for ulterior motives; or those who say the coroners all across the country are conspiring to make Trump look bad so Biden will be elected. These idiots drive me mad!!!

  7. Yes, I noticed that you called the morning glory a petunia. LOL It is beautiful.
    Love the license plate. We have a lot of vanity plates here in Virginia. It can be entertaining.
    We've gotten so much rain over the past week or so that our tomatoes are bursting at the seams.
    You should be a mask model. Cute.

  8. Jicama fries look yummy!
    Dr. M. certainly has an eye for perfect photos!


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
