August 2021 - Meals

August 15th our lives changed when dear, little dog, Buffy, needed a serious operation.  We are bringing meals in for almost all meals, so we can concentrate on her care and doctor appointments. She has had to have stitches added and removed and I think added again, and there have been several different changes in medication.  As I type this though she is doing well, had a good morning, now sleeping to help the healing. Later today, she will enjoy eating carrots and finding treats using her sense of smell. 

Not to say we were not already bringing food in before that as earlier in the month I was working on compiling our annual bookkeeping records (and it has been beastly hot here too).  Needed to do the organizing of papers and information before things could be summarized properly. 

Still need to go back to use the extra food I purchased while we began shut-in mode.

We started the month slowly going out again.  Meals in outside and inside restaurants.  Shopping in stores, and even driving and staying in hotels for fun.  But now we have the Delta variant, brought on I believe as so many people are not getting vaccinated, our masks are being carried with us everytime we leave the house.  We still leave to to shop though and get food.  I'm glad we have the little trip though as it will be a while before we do that again.

We have been taking turns for these shopping trips and picking up food, so the record keeping is missing meals.   

I was going to abandon the record keeping, but it seems we will be keeping to ourselves more again, so I will continue...  I know though that this way of eating is not healthy as we have been gaining weight.  I have not done formal exercise since the end of June and it took me a while to realize I could no longer have treats in the evening - so that is not helping in that department either...
