Slept in till almost 8 AM today.  Made my coffee and settled in for a daily dose of CC.  Lately, it has become more gloomy than I can take, so I stick to threads like these...thanks Dani!

 

My routine has included my usual 5 mile walk but I've added other things like cleaning out the closets and baking.

Oh and teaching myself how to craft cocktails!  My goal is to create a unique cocktail for each day we are in sequester status.  I'm calling it my own drink of the day menu.  Yesterday was the Mango Tango.  Shown below...

 

I found out Judge Judy comes on at 3:30 for an hour, so now I watch that.

 

Wander about the yard.

 

Cook some dinner

 

Go to bed

 

Start all over again...

Third week in lockdown.

 

So, instead of a port day in Zeebruge (on board of the brand new Celebrity Apex), I've cleaned the fridge....😁

 

Since we're "at risk", we didn't leave our appartment for groceries shopping -- young and gracious neighbors on the same floor are shopping for us once a week.

 

Kids/grandkids (in different cities) -- "Zooming" with them once a day.

 

Hopes that the lockdown will ease after Passover/Easter.

At 8pm tonight there is another clapping outside for the NHS nurses and doctors.

Are you doing the same in Israel?

Mmmm....I made a huge pot of chili, using homemade Mexican chili powder from scratch given to us at a cooking class we took in Mahahual in February...(outside Costa Maya) just before the shutdown came.  

 

Made me think of that wonderful last cruise and excursion.  Sigh.....

Definitely need to put it on the list.  Is the second ingredient pine?  Short for pineapple juice?

 

Correct, and who needs Coastal Kitchen😁

🎵 Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Made my way upstairs and had a smoke
And everybody spoke and I went into a dream...

 

Never mind, that's not my life, that's "A Day In The Life" by the Beatles. I did go on my daily 7 mile walk despite it being 35 degrees. I also played my drums for awhile. Sounds like yesterday and tomorrow! 

 

I love that song!!  Always makes me sing along while driving...(so no one can hear my awful singing voice!  😉 ).  

 

Oh no...now that song is stuck in my head!! 😵 Thanks Dave!!

Sorry Pat. When I'm playing my drums to a song no one can hear me singing either. That's a good thing as I can't even carry a tune in a bucket. 😎

Now lets talk about all those beans...which gives us automatic "social distancing" excuse.  😄 😄

Thanks for the laughs. 🤣 See we're right in tune with each other. Bean, beans, the musical fruit, the more we eat the more we toot.
