The weather...is back to normal for this time of year. Gray, chilly, a bit of rain. No rain today but no sunshine, either. A high temperature of 66 is forecast.
I'm reading...nothing, book-wise, at the moment. I finished up another cozy mystery from Guideposts yesterday and I haven't chosen my next read. I am reading Judges during my morning devotions.
I'm listening to...whatever is on in the car when I'm in it. Otherwise, I haven't really been listening to any music.
I'm watching...a lot of movies on PureFlix, the Christian streaming service. I signed up last weekend, but didn't really start watching anything until yesterday. Now I'm hooked. I've watched four! It is wonderful having so many clean, Christian themed movies at my fingertips. It's also been a surprise (a good one) how many well-known actors and actresses are showing up in Christian movies.
Feeling...a lot better today. I was feeling a bit off yesterday. I'm not sure what it was, but I suspect it was allergies. Everything is beginning to pop out and bloom here.
Thankful...for a new lawn tractor. We have a 15 year old John Deere. The tractor is in good working order, but the mower deck has rusted through. That results in a grass shower every time we mow. We wanted to just get a new mower deck, but our hunt on Saturday proved that John Deere has discontinued the one for our tractor. They have a newer one that can be used...if you buy all the parts to retro-fit it. It is not an inexpensive proposition. We ended up looking around and found a brand new Husqvarna for just a bit more than the parts would be. It's not a John Deere, which may cause my hubby to have a twitch, but since all we actually use it for is mowing grass it isn't really necessary to pay the extra for the Deere name.
Thinking...about covid vaccines. We have not been particularly onboard with them. I don't believe, as some do, that the vaccines are the mark of the beast. Our reservations have been over the safety. You hear so much about side effects and I don't see how they could possibly have been tested long term. Will there be any residual effects that won't show up until sometime in the future?
The company Tim works for is forcing the issue. They have offered a $250 bonus as an incentive for employees to get the shot. As further incentive they will give 2 days paid vacation time to any employee whose spouse/family also gets the vaccine. The amount isn't an incentive to Tim, but the men believe that after June 30 when the offer expires the company will make it mandatory for employment.
Now the thinking is that they may as well get the vaccine while they'll get paid for it rather than get it for nothing later on. Several men got their first dose yesterday or today. Tim scheduled his for tomorrow. He wants me to get one, too. There are openings where he is going. I can't go tomorrow. I have a dentist appointment in the morning and I have to take Mom to her physical therapy appointment in the afternoon. Saved by a full schedule. I am still really torn about the whole thing.
You know we're giving Jesus a headache.
And now I am off to babysit those grandkids for a little while. Happy Tuesday, y'all!
