We just finished this cat puzzle - one of 2 puzzles I picked up for 'the house' at Christmas... knowing we wouldn't be getting out much for a while yet. It wasn't a large one and DH finished it in about 10 days. I helped (added cat's faces here and there).
At the moment we've just started on the 2nd one. It's a little larger, so may take a bit more time.
Still haven't gotten a lot done around here. Did put Christmas away and threw out a box full of old mail (catalogs and junk mail). But wish I had the energy to get a lot more done. I keep hoping one morning I'll wake up and feel like I can do it all - hasn't happened yet.
I have been cooking. Made sour cream chicken enchiladas today. DH was asking for them and it's been a while. Such an easy recipe and they're so-oo good.
As for DH's positive Covid test - he's been very lucky in that although he still has a bit of a cough, he doesn't feel bad and has never run any fever. Grandson and I have no symptoms... and it's been over 10 days since DH started his 'cold'... 6 days since he was tested at the doctor's office... and 3 days since we got the results back.
Funny (not really funny haha) thing is that since this Saturday (when we got the positive result back) at least 8 people (mostly bloggers/blogger's family and people my daughter knows in the Hill country) have tested positive. Guess omicron is finding it's way into our inner circles. Most have not been too sick, although a few are definitely not feeling well. 2 my daughter knows have been hospitalized.
*Has anyone heard anything from Apache Dug...? He hasn't posted lately, hasn't replied on comments, and wasn't feeling too good in his last post. This has me a bit worried...
Well, all I can say is stay cautious, use masks, and keep your distance. You (and others) may not know that you already have Covid and are asymptomatic. And of course - without saying - GET VACCINATED! (unless you have a health problem and a doctor has advised against it) It may not keep you from contracting the virus, but it may keep you out of the hospital.
I think I may have mentioned that my oldest son gave me an Amazfit 5 band for Christmas. Well, it is definitely an interesting gadget. You wear it on your wrist and it tells the time, heart rate, steps, oxygen level, calories, etc. and has an alarm, stop watch, timer, camera, music, weather, sleep monitoring, stress level, etc.
However, it's taken me a few weeks to figure out how it works and right now an alarm goes off at 7 am and every 10 minutes after that until 7:30. I haven't figured out how to change that although it's not too much of a problem as it's usually the time we get up anyway.
Here's a pic:
I find the sleep monitoring especially interesting as it tells the amount of light sleep and deep sleep you have, shows your heart rate during sleep, and how many times you were awake. Also gives you a score each morning as well as a weekly or monthly average. I also like the oxygen level bit. Since I haven't worn a watch since retiring 10 years ago, it feels a bit strange... (I stopped wearing a watch back then as I was so glad to finally own my own time and not to have to follow someone else's schedule). But I'm wearing this Amazfit for other than telling time (just like the iPhone that I use for everything except talking).
That's my post for today. I sincerely hope all of you are being cautious and staying well. We can't guarantee anything when it comes to our health, but if we've done everything that is available to us, then we can at least feel that we've done our best. That's my opinion anyway.
And as I was telling a friend of mine last night on the phone (yes, she and I talk - probably the only one except my kids that I have long conversations with) - "it will all be OK in the end... and if it's not, then it's not the end". I heard that in the movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and loved the saying (movie is good too!).
Take care dear friends...
Hugs (definitely virtual now),
