Spring????

The morning has a slight chill but it is sunny. The wind comes and goes. When it does come it is a bit forceful. I would like to work a bit outside today. I am currently having a stand-off with a local red tailed squirrel. I refuse to put the bird feeder back up until it has left. I know fully well that it will come back at a later time to eat. It is the principle of the thing. Meantime it is on the porch. I’ll probably put it back up once I head out to do my writing. Hopefully things don’t get blown off the porch and table!

Yesterday was a good day at work despite the lack of sleep. I was a bit of a zombie off and on but I think I handled myself well. I joked around with our store manager and other management staff. It was nice to actually talk with everyone. Normally we are all so busy trying to get things done that it is a “Hi!” as we rush past.

I have taken on the role of friend/adopted daughter to one of my coworkers. We were friends way before he started working there but we have gotten closer. (This is the guy I has talking about the other day that had the stroke.) Yesterday was his first day back to work. He had to get a ride to work (his truck is still in Florida and I am pretty sure that he isn’t supposed to be driving anyway despite what he claims) and I came back to give him a ride home at the end of his shift. I have also offered to take him to any doctor appointments he might have. (His son lives with him but he can’t drive either.) It would be cheaper than him having to call a cab or “dial-a-ride” as he calls it since the appointments would be in Traverse.

He was refusing to eat as he had lost 12lbs (that he really can’t afford to lose) and he didn’t want to put it back on. I managed to convince him that he should atleast do something like Ensure since his body needs something for energy to continue to function. I bullied him a little but he took it all in stride. His brain is still bleeding slightly and he knows that he needs to get into the doctor. I know that work will be nice enough to work around any appointments that I might need to drive him to.

Stella is already outside enjoying the sun. I think I will wrap this up and join her. I have gotten a few more photos that I will share. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
