Early Morning Chores Become Highlights Of My Week

Sandra gave me a tip on a face mask that would be so much easier to make and to wear, I add, because no ears are involved. Just cut off a sleeve of a t-shirt and there you are. The most difficult thing for me was to find a t-shirt with a big enough sleeve to fit over my head. 

I wore this as I entered the post office early this morning to get my mail from my P.O. Box.

I saw two people. Both wearing masks.

On my way to the post office, I stopped a the recycle part of the dump and put some of all the cardboard that had accumulated into the proper bins.

It was foggy out, the clouds hung low over the valley. On my way home, I stopped and took this picture. 

Joyce texted me and said she was going to the dump. I know she was asking without words if I needed something to go. I texted back that I did.

Further along on my drive, I saw the cement plant encased in fog and thought it would make an interesting picture. I stopped the car too far away, but look what happened. I love the picture I got of the lamp post in the clouds. I did't even see it when I took the picture.

Also, thanks again to Sandra for your help with the photo uploads. Because I now stop to take pictures again. I hadn't done that for a long time. 

After meeting Joyce and Solange in my backyard and loading up my trash onto Joyce's Ford F-150, I loaded the rest of my cardboard in the Jeep and we all went to the dump.

Back home again, on our messed up road. Charles worked on it yesterday and made a passable way to the side of the huge puddles further down the road. I think even UPS, the last to come down our road when it's a mess, would make it now.

I  stopped in the road to look at the llamas and cows. All with their heads down, munching away. I yelled, "hey, I want to take your picture, look up, will you!" Only the young, white llama did. The old llama is probably hard of hearing and the cows couldn't care less. 

Looking down, I saw some really nice rocks on the ground. All in a grouping. I took this picture and will send it to Joyce to find out if she knows anything about it.

We have both become interested in rocks and rock collecting.

After I got home, Jeanne texted and said she had my face mask ready. I drove down to the mailboxes and met her there. She made a fabulous face mask for me. Her work is impeccable, professional. I will of course take another selfie with it on. Soon.

Have a good day, stay safe.
