I've been exercising daily. Nothing strenuous.

We had 5 nights in a row of freezing or near freezing overnight lows, we actually had snow on Saturday. I saw the forecast so I put a plastic row cover over my cold hardy plants on Friday, the warm weather plants already in the other raised bed already had a row cover. I had 0 losses from the weather.

Middle of the week last week the transmission on my old van started failing. I spent most of the day Thursday in the dealership buying a new used car. Friday the new to me car wouldn't start, the salesman came to my house and jumped it and I took it to the dealership and they replaced the battery. It drove fine all weekend, I was off work on Monday and didn't drive it, yesterday the car wouldn't start again.

I'm not exactly stuck at home, but I am working less. I've been doing more cleaning and organizing than usual.

How frustrating! Here's hoping it's an easy/quick fix and you'll have no more issues.

Here is hoping y'all get unstuck soon. I haven't had the pleasure of sheltering at home. I was given an "essential employee" letter and have been working. I've stopped in Walmart at least two to three times a week.

I do not know anybody personally who has tested positive for covid-19, we had a couple of out of state contractors at work that tested positive. Being from somewhere else did not count toward positive cases in the county where I work, which is 1 of 2 counties in the state that have no documented cases of covid-19.

I have not and will not wear a mask, however I am seeing more and more people with them on, some are quite creative (like the one crafted from the front half of a pair of men's fruit of the loom briefs, fly included). I refuse to fall for this communist plot. I believe common sense and maintaining a healthy immune system is the best approach. The immune system is like muscle, you use it or you lose it. Living in a bubble does not exercise it. I do not use hand sanitizers but I have adopted my wife's habit of wiping the shopping buggy handle with the wipes, she's been doing that for years already though. I do wash my hands more often. They take our temperature every day going into the mill. Mine has been anywhere from 93.0 to 97.9 with a temperature gun, so I am very wary of the validity. I do respect the potential of the virus, as I do the flu, pneumonia, car wrecks, cancer, and diabetes, but I don't hold any one of them over the other, they all can have deadly consequences.

Hope everyone stays healthy thru the lockdown in spite of the government's involvement. If they only took as much interest and put in as much energy in doing what they are supposed to be doing.

On the positives, weather has broken, we dont expect any more nights below 40 F., so I have taken down my plastic row covers and have second batch of warm weather plants out on the porch getting used to outdoors. We got a text from my boss this week, people with my job description are getting a temporary $2/hr "hazard" pay bump retroactive to April 1. It showed up on todays check.

The negative, they didnt find anything wrong with the car so I get to drive it till it fails and strands me again so they can look at it when it is not working.

The state is down to only one county now without a documented case of covid-19. The county in which I work, announced its first positive case yesterday.

Stuck at home most of the weekend due to the nasty weather. The sun shined yesterday evening so we went for a ride.

Almost three inches of rain here this weekend. Fortunately we were behind on precipitation. But that means I'll have three yards to mow very soon. Maybe a bike ride this afternoon. Still dialing in my position on the bike.

Our county is still on lockdown until the first of June (hopefully). I spend a good amount of time doing paper crafts - mostly Art Trading Cards which the group I'm in mails back and forth to each other. (There's been a dramatic uptick in activity within the group.)

I've also rearranged and worked on flower beds and done a bit of planting - mostly in pots. While it's cool and rainy right now, come August I won't be wanting to be outside much - flowers in pots and plenty of hardscape is the answer. Quick watering and next to no weeding.
