The new electric trimmer has been assembled and awaits a cooler day to be put into service. We're back up into the 90o range this week.
I spent a few evenings in front of the television this week disassembling large sized beefy men's t-shirts to make more t-shirt yarn for the masks I've been making. Lots of great colors now; I was running low and limited in the mask fabric I could use (to have the ties look good - I suppose I could use black for everything, but there are so many vivid colorfast colors out there to work with). I have about a dozen new rolls to draw from as I assemble these, and a growing list of people who want them.
I'm down about six pounds since I started paying attention and doing a couple of days of modified fasting each week; still in the same pants sizes for now, though. No dog walking the last couple of days, but probably tomorrow in the morning, and if it cools off again. Mowing the lawn, digging in the garden, and walking the dogs are my main sources of exercise since the gyms are still off limits. The Texas COVID-19 numbers are going up again, after not really decreasing as much as they could have (as we see in other parts of the country). This is depressing. I'm thinking I can do some outdoor volunteering at the Botanic Garden now that it's cooler and my knee is in good shape.
