    Needed to get some stamps (I always send cards and letters out), but I ended up ordering off the USPS website. I always do that for my Christmas stamps. If they take a week to get here, that's OK.

    I got a month of Amazon Prime for something like $2. Think I'm going to keep it, as ordering non-food stuff online is just so much better now.

    I need to sort out my dress clothes, as when I go back to work, it mostly likely won't be in jeans like the old company.

    @Steve: I never really have done much selling online; most of my pieces are in locked galleries right now. I am in the midst of taking a hiatus from smithing during the pandemic. I figure in a way it is a good time to get my wrists and hands to heal. Even before all this hit I had pulled out of two galleries because I just can't accomplish making enough jewelry these days to keep them stocked - I used the jewelry that was returned to me to restock the remaining galleries I am in (which are now closed). I have the feeling there is just not going to be a market for discretionary spending for a while anyway.

    It makes sense for this to be a kind of farmer's winter for you. You do beautiful work; I hope more people see it when you feel better and we can all get out of our houses.

Walked around in the yard a bit and picked up a few sticks, planned on where to move some of the more enthusiastic plants, etc. And finished re-watching the Harry Potter movies. All in all, a pretty good day.
    I was much amused by your mocking chicken carcass!

    Air dried clothes and clean dogs. Lol. The smells of spring!

    Today was pretty busy. Conducted a meeting via phone, scanner, and email. Almost the last thing I needed to do before ties are severed with old job. Still trying to decide if I'm elated or pi$$ed that I'm no longer employed. A bit of both, I suppose. Anyway. Washed a load of laundry and hung it out. Cleared most of the winter debris from the patio. Planned to make a choc cheesecake-type dessert with a mix DSis gave me (she won it in a basket of stuff at a quarter auction) and it smelled vile when opened, so I composed it and we had a lemony concoction instead. Very tasty! I don't really like talking on the phone all that much, but since we can't get together in person, I called and chatted with 4 different family members. It was nice but very tiring. And again, I didn't get to the insurance shopping...maybe tomorrow!

    Tomorrow, besides insurance comparing, I plan to wash/hang out several loads of blankets, find the dining room table ( I KNOW I have one somewhere!!) and attack another stack of papers. Oh - and do another half-hour, at least, of yard work.

    Today I am cleaning and organizing plant markers. In addition to marking plants I have maps of the important stuff. Between the deer and the weather, these markers don’t stay in one place.
