Yes sir! That's my baby!

I drove to my granddaughter's to babysit while she gathered her work computer/supplies. Alex is on the couch. Liam is stopping Charlie from getting into mischief.
When the little ones went down for a nap, Liam and I cuddled on the couch. I used to see him once a week before he started kindergarten.
He snuggled and said, "I miss you, Nana. Are you starving yourself?"

I was thrilled he noticed my ten pound weight loss. I beamed at him and asked, "Why?" 
He looked at me confused. 
Then he said, "Can't you hear your own belly making all those sounds?"

I hope you are sheltering in place, eating less than I am, and reading as much as I have been.

I loved Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle.

Today I am starting The Doctor's Wife, a psychological thriller which drew me in with the first sentence. Now on to page 2.

Bye-Bye. How are you handling the confinement?

Linda--I've been eating too much and watching too much TV. (I'm not giving my stomach a chance to gurgle due to being empty. ;)

Heh, heh! It was the gurgle, not being poked by your exposed bones from your 10 lb weight loss. Congrats on that!

We are having Zoom conferences with our family. We used to see Frankie every day - well, we still do, only just through the window. I just wonder if he, and the rest of my grandchildren,will be able to return to school in September.

Looks like you are still allowed to visit family. Good luck.

I am trying to stay off fattening foods during this pestilence. Less exercise means more layers of fat accumulating.
It’s only my eyes which get plenty of exercise, reading, reading, reading.

We are staying at home and muddling through the best we can. Liam is so cute.
