Good afternoon beautiful people,

I spent quite a bit of time in the garden this morning- weeding, deheading, watering and picking vegetables (Swiss chard, green beans and peas). Then I had to thoroughly wash the veggies and beans are prepared for dinner tonight. I also got in a 10 000 step walk.

I checked out the flight cost to Denver and it is very hefty, not surprisingly. It appears you must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival until at least Aug. 23rd. At that time, I believe the U.S. will review the border regulations. If Dd1 and her American BF were to visit us, there’s no quarantine required after Aug. 9th. Dh has softened his approach and will call her this weekend. He realizes this situation could cause a major rift. I hope Dd1 will receive his call. We have a limited time frame to work around as Dd1 is not available after Labour Day.

I feel exhausted for some reason so will just take it easy this evening.

Have a good one everyone. Thinking of you Jackie,

Update:
I mowed the house area of my yard, I still need to do the front acre...probably tomorrow . I needed to pick up limbs first so I did that also.
i had the youngest grand this afternoon while prego went to the doctor...she goes in Monday to be induced/started so we may have a baby either Monday eve or Tuesday morning. She has requested that extended family wait to go see the new one until youngest grand has met her new sister first...I think that is a wonderful idea.
New baby has reached 6 pounds and doc is trying to work with the blood pressure issues for the best health of both.
The thought of new baby has had me very emotional....I know my parents would be so proud to have another baby in the family.

We have been told to mask up again in Indiana but it isn't mandated, but they are leaving it up to the individual schools to issue their own mask mandate...kind of confusing.
Salad and baked potato for supper.

Sibling is still in the hospital.

She is doing better and should be released by Monday. Her heart doctor will be out of town this weekend, so didn't want her going home when he is not around. And it is better to stay where they are taking good care of her

What was strange was that her son had to take home all the items she brought with her. The extra clothing we packed, her makeup etc - even her money. Guess cuz of Covid - the hospital doesn't want any outside germy stuff around?? Who knows. She feels lost without her minimal makeup.

Maybe the hospital is anticipating they might need to move your sister’s room because of an influx of new patients and they don’t want to worry about moving her things. Just an idea.

The friend I lunched with yesterday has a longtime live-in boyfriend with heart issues similar to your sister. He is retaining fluids and has been told to drastically restrict salt and limit drinking water/fluids. My friend, who is a good cook, is going nuts trying to find things for him to eat. They always went out to eat once a week but that has stopped now. Hearing her really made me think of your sister. Your sister is still in my prayers.
