Day 11 / Record breaking temperatures

Once again we have gone from a couple days of spring right into summer. We had a low of 70 and a high of 98 degrees breaking the record of 95 degrees set in 1935.  We are expecting a cold front this weekend that will bring the temperatures down to 83 degrees.

Today is Day 11 of my self-isolation. I am in good spirits and really nothing has changed in my life.  I would like to say I have more time on my hands but I do not. One thing I have noticed is a decrease in telemarketers as well as calls from flippers...that is always a good thing!

A couple of years ago I bought a box of 100 Nitrile disposable gloves - light duty 3 mil thickness and yesterday I found the half-used box still in good shape to add to my "prep stash".

I had a chance to try a pair out this morning as I once again had to go pick up trash along the street side of the fence line as Wednesday's are trash day and I failed to do so last week. What really irritates me is that the litterers are adults, not kids...grrrrrrrrrrr!

I hope everyone is doing well whether you are in self-isolation or government-mandated stay at home orders. Stay positive this too shall pass!

Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

    1. I am alive, my loved ones and I are healthy, I have plenty of supplies on hand and I never had to stand in long lines since this pandemic arrived in our nation...so I'm happy :)

  2. Sadly it might be wise to Self-Isolate yourself longer than the Two Weeks to allow all the Idiots that were spreading the Virus a chance to take the germs with them.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Yes, I was aware of that when I started my self-isolation. Now our local government has gotten involved by that I mean the City of Del Rio and Val Verde County and we are under mandatory stay at home orders.

  3. I will be glad to get my treadmill this weekend which will get me up off the couch. I've gotten lazy - no one comes to see me so I do a little at a time and don't worry about housework. My vision isn't what it used to be, and the dust & clutter doesn't seem to bother Rocky.

    1. I hope you get your treadmill soon and that your son-in-law is able to set it up for you.

  4. Glad to see you are enjoying sunny temps and that you are in good humor. The gloves discovery is great! Like finding treasure.
    I have been doing more research about the missing seal and flag and it is very interesting. And no wonder that news channels are not mentioning this. It is very significant. So without going down that Freemason rabbit hole, My theory is they are allowing him to talk in order to keep his base happy and to buy time for the money package to be distributed. Also to try and prevent a bank run. But the absence of the seal and flag tells the ones 'in the know' to totally disregard his stupid remarks. The rhetoric is suddenly much different on MTPR today.
    I like the good Dr. as well. Odd he contradicts tRump at every turn, yet today he was given a large chunk of time on MTPR, and tRump hasn't run him off. Things are just weird and more weird.
    Stay safe, my friend.

    1. The temperatures are a bit too warm for this time of the season but I will take them over cold weather. I was afraid the gloves might not be any good after all these years but lucky to find otherwise.

      I am still not convinced about the significance of the flag and seal. Who would be the people "in the know'? The place where I last sat through a briefing looked like they were in a different location.

      I have not been able to stomach anymore briefings. I catch up on the nightly cable shows where they show clippings of his lunatic antics. I much prefer to watch Governor Andrew Cuomo's daily briefing...why can't he be our President?

      The day he fires Dr. Anthony Fauci all hell will break loose and I will really go into a state of panic then.

  5. Staying focused on being happy is so important. Like you I am fine with this.

    Yesterday morning I had to raise the temp so I could take a shower it was 44 but late afternoon it was 83 degrees and I had to turn the a/c on to cool down the house so I could sleep. Today it was 67 go figure.
    Boy does Auntie Acid gave that right hahaha

    1. I agree one has to focus on being happy or it could adversely affect your state of mind.

      We are all having such odd weather patterns. You had almost a 40 degree swing in one day! Slightly opening the windows during the evening and then closing them in the mornings has kept the house cool and I have not had to turn the A/C...YET!

      Aunty Acid or rather the person that pens her was right on the money with this one :-)
