Hello, friends! I hope that you are all doing well. For two days I had no headache. Wonderful! Then today it came back. But not nearly as bad as before. I was able to take a nap and sleep it off. What a relief it is to not have a headache after 10 days of it.
Yesterday I was feeling pretty good, the weather was wonderful, and I decided to get the grass cut. The yard was a mess!
I started cutting with my weed whacker and then saw a bee. Then another and another. How wonderful! I haven't seen bees in ages. So I stopped cutting and sat down and watched them. Such wonderful little creatures. I tried to take photos of them, but they were too fast for me. I'd no sooner focus on one and it would take off for another place. I saw a couple of wasps too but we won't talk about them. I am not a fan of wasps. We have had our run ins with them in the past.
After awhile things seemed to settle down and I went on with my cutting. There were two kinds of flowers covering my lawn. These sort of light purple ones.
And then some more blue-purple ones.
I hated to cut them down but they will grow back. And the yard needed a cut. I will make sure I plant more flowers for the bees.
I took this short video to show you the yard and let you hear the sounds of spring here in northeast Philly.
But another reason I was outside was to see a flyover by the Navy Thunder and the Air Force Blue Angels. They were flying over New York, Philly and New Jersey as a salute to all those fighting the COVID-9 virus and those taking care of them. What a thrilling site. The aircraft went right over my house!
I heard some kids yelling, "There they are!" and looked up just in time to see them. It was so thrilling! It was the first thing I've looked forward to in weeks.
I also got some pictures from our local news station. I thought you would enjoy seeing them.
Here they are flying past the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
And flying by the statue of William Penn on top of City Hall.
The Navy F-16 Thunderbirds.
Over the Delaware River.
The Air Force F-18 Blue Angels.
Flying over center city.
It was a wonderful thing for them to do. And so exciting to see them. It reminded me of the years I spent working for Naval Air.
And so another day of the stay at home is in the books. We are half-way through the seventh week with no end in sight. I have a feeling that when we finally do reopen it will be a different world.
Hope you have a good evening.
