Maybe It’s May 2020 – The End is Near

Tomorrow will be the end of the month of May.  I’ve posted twice, three times if you count the first one but that was about the A to Z in April so…

What’s been happening?   Well, since the Shelter-in-Place is still in effect, not much really.  I’ve gone to the grocery store a few times, driven my son to work and picked up some mail from my mailbox but other than that the only time I go anywhere is walking with Benny twice a day. 
Here’s a few pictures from the month:
This was the sky this afternoon.  It looked like snowy mountains to me but it’s all just clouds.  We did have a bit of rain today but it didn’t last long.

Took a different route with one of the Benny walks and saw these two peeking out from a window.
I had a day of card making and added these to the Etsy site.  They have a more masculine feel to them so could be used for Father’s Day and other occasions when you don’t really want to send something too flowery.   

I even made a video about how I put them together.  
I did a bunch of coloring in the book my son got me for Christmas, Magical Jungle.  This is one page.
Took a picture of myself.  I’m documenting the weight loss and these help me keep on track.  I don’t want to slide into bad habits.  This was a top I got from one of my daughter’s friends and I was showing her that it was being put to good use.  Plus, I’ve been taking a selfie a month for a couple of years now.  It’s kinda fun to look back and see the changes.   

People looking out the window are not the only things I’ve been noticing on the daily walks with Benny.  These spider webs were covered in dew drops and it looked like patches of diamonds in this bush.  

These looked like the rock candy sticks with the dew being the sugar.  It’s hard to tell from this picture but really, that’s what it reminded me of.  

It was nice to see the shelves at Safeway filling up a bit with paper products.  

After doing all the scrapbook pages for our concerts last month I realized that I need more albums to hold them all.  I got a plain album and decorated it by using some Luster Polish as a background and then using a stencil and metallic marker to detail the front.  Came out pretty good I think. 

This is Benny telling me it’s time for a walk.  

Got my full moon shot.  

Loved all the different colors on this rose.  

And one more picture of me.  I really have to get some new clothes I think.  

We also had our anniversary, but I wrote about that in my last post.  I did get some more transcription work too, which is so very helpful right now.  Things are looking up a bit in my world, how about yours?

  1. Congrats on your weight loss… and, even better, your focus on healthy eating. So many of us are “putting on a few” as we stay at home so, even just maintaining is quite an accomplishment. Your Father’s Day cards look great!

      Thanks Janis! It is frustrating sometimes to see the numbers on the scale move so slowly or move in the wrong direction. I just have to be more mindful of what I put in my mouth and maybe walk an extra block or two with Benny. Thanks for stopping by!


  2. The spider webs look so darn cool!

  4. You’ve not only been busy, but productive, Janet! Go, You! Big congrats on your continued weight loss journey, and OMG, Benny is adorable!

    2020 has been such a “suspended” existence but I’m barreling through. LOL! I have a book coming out tomorrow and another in a few weeks. Feels good to be writing AND publishing again.

    We got this! 🙂

    Those masks in the window are creepy. Don’t quite get that, but to each his own, I suppose. I like the photo of Benny. How could you say “no” to that face?

      Yeah, I rarely can say no to that face, especially since even if I do, he won’t leave my side – LOL. The heads in the window were a bit of a surprise, especially since we are no where near Halloween!
