I am glad to hear about successful voting. Not to be political, but I heard today that a certain person has been suing battleground states in order to suppress voting.

I went back to the hand doctor this afternoon. They took another x-ray that looks good. This is Day 35 (one day short of 5 weeks) and the doctor said he sees a lot of bone there where the fracture was. Not completely healed, but there is another week for that. They removed the cast. A therapist made a removable splint that I am wearing most of the time. I should take it off for showering and two or three time a day to move my wrist and do some simple exercises. I'll see doctor in two weeks and he will decide if I need therapy (which I expect I will).

I left a little late and got there 5 minutes before my appointment. It's a two-mile walk. It was cloudy out with rain forecasted, but before I left the sun came out. I wore sunglasses. Had to walk fast. Afterwards the sun went in. I took photos of the East 64th, 5th Avenue and Central Park South. There are some pretty mums on the islands in the middle of Park Avenue. I took out a slice of pizza on the way home.

I am thinking about flute playing, but I know to wait at least 2 weeks. After another week, I might take it out of the case to see what it feels like to hold it. The doctor and therapist did not comment on it. The New York Flute Club is doing online programs in lieu of in-person concerts. Last night they had the first webinar with a well-known member. She compared Debussy Syrinx and another unaccompanied piece. It went on for 20 minutes and cut off and I could not get it back. It was on Zoom. I did try to get it back. Nothing has been said about it cutting off or how it went. I had other things to do anyway. There is a program this Sunday. During normal seasons, they have concerts, about once a month, on Sundays at a recital hall at Baruch College.

It's been warm with all the humidity. In the 60s today, but I sweated a lot outside.

    Good morning.

    We're to be cool today with a high of 52 or so and cloudy skies. About an inch of rain fell yesterday morning and another inch yesterday afternoon. Should be caught up on rainfall for the month and still way ahead for the year.

    Fixed biscuits and gravy for breakfast; then put dinner in the slow cooker. Today was the day to clean the Keurig and change the filter in it and the Brita. Easy chores but it kept me busy this morning. Probably a good thing.

    Need to make a trip to the Post Office by 2 PM and II needs to fill his gas tank. I'm hoping he might be willing to do that shortly.

    Hope you are enjoying the day. Stay safe.

    Good evening from southern Arizona. I am spending the weekend at my daughter's house.

    This morning my daughter and I went for a run/walk. She did the running and I did the walking.

    This afternoon I had my overdue screening mammogram and bone density scan tests. I am hoping for boring normal results.

    The pantry remodel continues.

    Keeping busy as always.

    I hope that your day is wonderful. Be safe and be excellent to each other.

    Anna, I hope you get good and boring results on those things.

    After my big day on Friday (doctor and walking 4.1 miles) and staying up too late, I could not get up today until . . . 5. It was a dreary day outside, but tonight I watched a walking video of ActionKid in Central Park at 2pm and a lot of people were out there in the gloom. Lots of people picnicking and playing in Sheep Meadow.

    I went out to get a few things at Amish Market. Got there 15 minutes before they closed (9pm closing). Then I took out from a new Thai restaurant called Three Roosters, which is next to the Thai place I took out from last Saturday (Won Dee Siam). They only have chicken dishes. I'd read in Gothamist about the fried chicken with fries and got that. It was SOOOOOOOOO spicy. I think it was all in the outside. I hope it didn't have that much salt, just other hot spicy herbs. I finished the fries, since I knew I wouldn't want to reheat them and I left about half of the chicken for another day. It was that hot. Something about spicy Thai though is that if you drink water it helps to make the hot feeling go away. It was even hot on my lips.

    There were a lot of people out on 9th Avenue tonight, mostly for outdoor dining or walking. The temp was lower today, about 55 when I went out. It's 46 now and only going up to 54 at most today. I wonder if the heat will finally come on in my building? It's almost 6am, so it should, but I bet it won't.

    Early voting started in New York throughout the state on Saturday. There were long lines and I saw a comment on facebook from a woman who waited 4 hours and said it was worth it (same voting place as mine). My voting place is Madison Square Garden (for early voting) and my plan is to go Monday with a back-up plan of going Tuesday (when it is open until 8 instead of 3pm).

    Have a good, safe Sunday, everyone.

    Good morning.

    We're looking at a slightly warmer day with a high of 58. Gloomy skies forecast until late in the week.

    II working 11-7 tonight. I might decide to put flannel sheets on the bed today since I was a little cool last night.

    Hope you have a peaceful Sunday. Stay safe.

    Good evening from central Arizona. Strange weather for Arizona is predicted for tomorrow. Benson, in southeastern Arizona,  is predicted to have a high of 66F with a low of 32F. Gilbert, in central Arizona, is predicted to have a high of 64F with a low of 43F. Flagstaff, in northern Arizona, is predicted to have a low of 27F tonight with high of 30F with a low of 16F tomorrow. I was dripping sweat in my daughter's garage today painting a faux barn door. I was in the shade with the garage door open. Painting the back of that door will be a lot cooler tomorrow!

    In addition to door painting, I also did some sewing along side my daughter. I brought my sewing machine from home and she was sewing on her machine. We were both working on Rock Candy table toppers for the Journey2Nebula sew along. Hers is in winter prints with snowflakes and mine is in fall and harvest prints.

    I hope that your day is wonderful. Be safe and be excellent to each other.

    Good morning.

    A low of around 50 this morning with cloudy skies and a forecast high of 53. Also a possibility of some rain showers around noon.

    A produce and prescription run in my plans for the morning followed by laundry. Think it's time to swap out the wardrobes. II might just want more long sleeve shirts available.

    Hope your week started well. Stay safe.

    Good morning. I've been in kind of a blah mood the last few days. We've had cold weather, rain, and snow. It may warm up to high 50s this weekend.

    Sunday my MIL is returning to Florida until April. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but suppose with the precautions she takes she will be as safe there as she is here right now. I will be riding along to take her to the airport and then we will stop at my mother's building for a few minutes. My sister will also meet us there and we will see each other, masked, outside, distanced. It will be the first time I have seen them since last Christmas.

    Stay safe. Be well. U.S. citizens, VOTE!

    Good morning.

    Thinking of you, Crebel, and safe travels for you and your MIL.

    46 and foggy here this morning with a forecast high of 50. Accuweather says it will be dreary today. Must make myself do something besides sit around all day. And there are things that need to be done, I just don't always push myself to get them done.

    Amazon has opened a last mile distribution center about 3 miles from us. It has been interesting to watch as they remodeled the building and enlarged the parking area. We've been observing the arrival of dozens of Prime delivery vans over the last 3 weeks or so and one day last week saw multiple ones heading in all directions around noon. So we assume they are now using the facility. Part of my subscription order did arrive a day earlier than the shipping notice stated it would but don't know if this distribution center will have much effect on speed of deliveries. Amazon is also building a 5-story distribution center at the river port. Not sure when it will open.

    Hope you find some inspiration in the day. Stay safe.

    I found some inspiration today by voting! It was more exciting than I expected. I had been anxious about whether to walk to Madison Square Garden or take the train. Figured that if I took the train I wouldn't be out as long and wouldn't need a bathroom. I walked and it was fine. I heard from some people on FB (neighborhood page) that they waited 4 hours in line on Saturday, the first day of early voting. A friend in my nabe went Sunday and waited two hours. My wait (from getting in line to finishing voting) was an hour twenty minutes. I got in line on 8th Avenue near 34th. The line went south to 32nd and a long block to 7th Avenue to the front of MSG.

    I never thought it would take so long to vote where I am, but I am glad that so many people are voting. The longest it took for me previously was in 1992 on a raining morning at John Jay College on West 59th Street. There was a big turn out for change.

    There were a lot of chalk messages on the sidewalk during the wait about how important voting is. I took a few photos but they are not among the ones I posted below.

    i wore this sticker afterwards and then stuck it on my kindle fire cover:
    https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10224572709051193&set=a.1070980780747

    They gave me another sticker:
    https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10224572696050868&set=a.1070980780747

    This was what I saw after I got to 7th Avenue in the front of MSG (I think you can also see there the front of the NY Times on 8th Avenue and the photos I took on West 46th Street, Restaurant Row between 8th and 9th, and it goes from there to some Columbus statue and Central Park South photos from last Friday):
    https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10224571861870014&set=a.1070980780747

    I walked home by way of 34th St. to 9th Avenue and up to 54th (had to go over to 10th to my wine store to get a bottle). I stopped at Manganero's on 9th near 37th and took out a chicken parmesan hero. I saw a deli cat on 10th Avenue that I had never seen before. There is a deli next to 4 restaurants with outdoor tables. The cat was outside under some empty tables. She looks like a big kitten. She was very skittish and eventually made a run back to her deli. I did not try to get a picture.

    Hope everyone is well. Wishing you a safe and nice Wednesday.

    Earlier today I heard that the elementary school that is my voting place on election day was closed because of a certain number of Covid-19 cases. Some of the people on my neighborhood FB page were in a panic over whether they can vote there next Tuesday. I think it will be open, or if not, they will direct people in our district to another voting place. They might even have the school re-opened for classes by that time. It's PS 111 on W. 52nd Street near 10th Avenue.

    Good morning.

    48 this morning heading to 54 with the possibility of a couple of inches of rain over the next 24 hours. But, sunshine is in the forecast for several days starting Friday. Lows in the 30s by Saturday.

    Nothing going on here today except trying to stay dry. Over 60 new Covid cases in our county yesterday. So glad we decided early on to vote absentee.

    Enjoy the day as best you can. Stay safe.

    Good morning.  It's 38 and nasty here in Austin for the second day in a row.  I thought we were getting something with temps in the 50s - not 30s!  I'm glad I have been working from home the last few days.
    I really miss Daddy right now.  I have an empty wood rack and really want a fire.  I betcha he would have brought me some wood.  DH found a place here that will deliver split, seasoned oak.  The prices are pretty high considering I used to get my wood for free.  But I'd rather have expensive wood than no wood.

    Let's see, what has happened since I've been in exile?
    I had my annual screen mammogram.  It was fine.
    My gum is healing pretty well from the tooth extraction.
    I was exposed to someone with Covid at the office last week.  I took a test on Saturday and negative results came back on Monday.  So that's good.
    We got flu shots yesterday.  I took a Tylenol afterwards - no pain or swelling that I have noticed so far.
    I put dinner in the crock pot yesterday morning.  The whole house smelled more and more yummy as the day progressed.  It tasted pretty good too.

    Hope all of you are hanging in there.  The time change is coming up and more light in the morning may help my mood.  I did get a second therapy light like the one I have at the office to keep on my desk here.  I am pretty good at using it when at the office.  It's not a part of my routine here yet.  I'm working on that.

    Stay safe.

    Good afternoon from southern Arizona. We had a hard freeze last night (28F). Yesterday I moved my tender potted cactus inside the workshop by the southern facing window and then put temporary Styrofoam over the window. We covered the luffas, tomatoes, and peppers in the garden. This morning we removed the coverings and the Styrofoam. The parts of the garden plants look ok but most looks very wilted. The low tonight is predicted to be 37F with today's high at 64F. Then we should have at least a week with the highs in the high 70s to low 80s with the lows in the high 40s to low 50s. Hopefully the nearly ripe luffas will get a chance to ripen. If the pepper plant looks ok in a week, I will pot it and bring it inside. The quail will get anything that doesn't ripen.

    Laundry and sewing are on today's agenda. Tomorrow I go to my sister's house to sew sofa cushion covers. I will be masked if her grandkids are there. Windows will be open as the weather is currently wonderful.

    Stay safe. I hope your day is wonderful. Be excellent to each other.

    Good morning you all. Stay safe. Wear mask, keep distance and wash your hands without anyone telling you.  This is not a political issue that media seem to be making.

    It's nice sunny morning and warm temps for walk....

    We had another cloudy no-sunshine day today. (The sun was out for a short period on Tuesday, but by the time I went out it was cloudy again). I needed to do something to get a boost, so I used my Lifecycle. I'd only used it once since my wrist fracture 5-1/2 weeks ago and that was for 12 minutes. I was nervous about getting on and off the bike without putting my right hand down. I'm a bit more confident today. I used it for 24 minutes in sets of 12, 6, 4 and 2 minutes. I'm finding it OK to put my right hand down on the towel on the handlebar, but not to put weight on it. Part of the time, I put my elbow on it and tried to occasionally raise my right arm. While I was on it, I watched some Great British Baking Show on my kindle fire. I usually read while doing this, but I thought watching the show would make it easier.

    Didn't get outside at all today.

    I've been wearing my new Fitbit Versa 2 for a few days now. I am not sure, but I think it recognized my biking as a walk. I logged the bike 24 minutes in and will look at the app tomorrow to see if it shows as anything. I am not learning how to read this intuitively and have inquired a number of times on Fitbit's twitter page. I even had to use the chat to find where to set up the watch, because a set-up option did not show up until they told me to go to "profile."

    I wasn't planning on tracking my sleep, but I've done it 3 nights in a row and find it interesting. All 3 days it rated my sleeps as "fair," but the best was last night (today, actually) with a 79 score compared with 70 and 72 the previous sleeps. I had 60% light sleep, a few deep ones and REM. I wake up a lot. (I knew that.)

    We are in for another cloudy day Friday (maybe rain too) and sunshine on Saturday.

    I texted the super about continuous lack of heat this morning. He must have done something, because we had heat for a short while. Temp went above 55 (to about 57), so we've had none since then.

    Hope everyone has a safe and satisfying Friday. Welcome, HithyAnita. Where do you live (general area, at least)?

    Good morning.  44 and clear in Austin today.  I am at the office starting to set up the hardware for our next Commission Meeting.  I want to get it done and out of the way.

    mlewis - I think the sleep scores on the fitbit are very interesting.  There are mornings when I swear that I didn't sleep well and it will claim that I got somewhere in the 80s - so I don't know what that means.  What I find most interesting is that I don't get much REM or deep sleep.  On nights when those scores are higher I feel more rested in the mornings.  If I could find something that kept me getting more REM and deep sleep, I bet I'd feel better overall.

    Have a wonderful day.  Stay safe.

    Good morning.

    46 degrees heading to 51 and the likelihood of more rain has decreased. Yesterday's more than an inch was sufficient as far as I am concerned. The low tonight is to be around 37. Just heard a small limb come down from the tree by the kitchen. Guess I'll be checking that out once it gets a little lighter out.

    I think bread baking will be on the agenda for today. Not sure what else we'll get around to doing.

    Hope your day is a positive one. Stay safe.

    Good morning from southern Arizona. I will start packing my sewing machine, cutting mat, and other stuff in the car to head to my sister's house for a day of sewing. If the weather stays nice, I will set up a table on her back porch and sew outside. :D

    Hope your day is wonderful! Be excellent to each other. Stay safe and well.

    Good morning.

    36 degrees heading to 60 with sunny skies. I am looking forward to something besides dreary skies.

    II working 3-11 today so I plan on doing some house cleaning this afternoon. I've been too lazy this week.

    Used a different bread recipe yesterday - one I had not used in a long time. Wondering now why I quit making honey wheat bread. It will be put into the rotation, that's for sure.

    It's Friday so I'm hoping you have something in mind to make the weekend different. Stay safe.

    Happy Friday!
    LL, I can send you some of our sunshine. We had a pretty day yesterday, and today looks like it is heading in the same direction.

    We are planning to follow our recent Halloween tradition and hide in the house pretending we are not home. I really don't think trick or treating is a good idea this year.

    Stay safe.

    Good morning. Dry skies here and headed to 50s/60s for the weekend; a nice break.

    DS and family were coming for a short, masked visit this evening and I was really looking forward to a few minutes with grandkids. That visit was cancelled yesterday after DIL had lunch with a coworker on Wednesday and the coworker tested positive on Thursday. I was discouraged, but now is not the time to become complacent about mitigation measures!

    They will still bring the grandkids in costume to our driveway Saturday evening and get their bags of treats out in our yard by decorations we will put out and we can wave, watch, and blow kisses from the walkway. They will do the same thing at their other grandparents' in town and that will be the extent of their trick-or-treating this year. Since we don't live in a neighborhood, we won't have any other kids even trying to come by, thank goodness!

    Andra, good to have you around again and in better spirits after your short break.

    Stay safe, be well.  U.S. citizens, VOTE!

    Good morning from southern Arizona. If you are a U.S. citizen and haven't voted already, make sure you are planning on voting! If you have voted, verify the status of your ballot if possible. The ballots for DH and myself have been received and accepted.

    It was too windy yesterday to sew outside. Instead the windows and front door were open with the front screen door closed and locked. Social distancing with my great niece was maintained. One cushion cover was completed and five more are cut out. After that, we will need to determine the patterns for the remaining cushion covers.

    As usual, we have bought our favorite candy in the remote event that we will get Trick or Treaters. I think that has happened 5 times in the past 20 years.

    Hope your day is wonderful! Be excellent to each other. Stay safe and well.

    Good morning.

    41 degrees heading to 64 with sunny skies.

    No specific plans for the day. Might mow in order to mulch leaves. We'll just see if I'm ready to be active this afternoon or continue to vegetate inside.

    Have a peaceful Sunday. Stay safe.
