Connecting while Distancing -
Said hi to a friend and her husband from a distance when they porch delivered a couple of homemade face masks and homemade hand sanitizer.
Got a birthday card and gift check ready to mail for DIL's 50th! We will have to celebrate with her down the road.
Carrying On -
Today was the day to try to start dealing with the poodle girl's hair as she is pretty fluffy on her face, feet and bottom especially. I gave her a bath and then trimmed very carefully around her face, feet and bottom. I'm not quite ready to try to do the whole dog!
I did find this on How to cut a poodle's hair using scissors and I am sure we will have to try it all eventually. I'm waiting for the grooming brush I ordered and will ask the vet tech to check her toenails when I take her for her monthly shot.
What else? Some stretches, made veggie broth & started split pea soup for tomorrow. We had chicken, pasta with sauce and veggies for dinner.
Finished an interesting book, The Plague by Daniel DeFoe of Robinson Crusoe fame. Set during the mid 1660's while the plague decimated London and the surrounding area but focused on how people behaved. Fiction although the reviews say he got the facts right. I thought it might be a difficult read due to the current pandemic but it wasn't for me. As a social scientist I found the story quite interesting and it shows that human nature hasn't changed much if at all.
Thankful for - My willingness to research and try new things which makes me fairly adaptable.
