The mystery was what would make me clench and grind my teeth as I slept, when I'm retired and have no bosses or deadlines or financial stress, and my health is the best it's been in 10 years? Especially in the last 10 days?

FORNICATING TRUMP!

You should consider an outhouse in Costa Rica for the remainder of the year!

True. More likely I'll simply step back from cable news and internet. I did something similar at one point during the Clinton administration, and was much happier.

The mouth guard, the elimination of caffeine, and trying to pay less attention to Trump are actually working. Teeth only hurt once since my Dentist visit.

I'm still managing to avoid the teeth pain. Of course now, between the stock market and the Coronavirus stuff, I have something to be stressed about that will impact me directly. We are reluctant to liquidate any stock at current value. Then again, it looks like our travels will be curtailed this year whether we want to or not. So our needs will be much less.

I dusted off my seeds and peat trays, and I'm trying to grow my own greens this year. So far I've started kale and turnips for tops. I have a tower planter with a watering system being shipped. I'll probably plant some carrots, beets, radishes and turnips ( different variety) for roots and some various lettuce in time.

Haven't gotten over my sinus infection, so I haven't given blood.

The ice is coming off and I'm beginning to take walks again.

Spring is trying to sprung here.  Momma and I are going to assess the foliage in front of the playhouse and do some trimming before it's too late tomorrow afternoon.  I'll try to get before and after pics of the holly tree/bush...

Why would it be too late tomorrow afternoon? A cold spell comin' in?

No, you just don't want to do ruthless pruning after the plant's gotten into the growth phase, and many of the trees have started budding, so close examination will inform my trimming...

Chickens. Not legal here in the suburbs, and not even practical because firearms discharge isn't legal either, and that results in a robust population of raccoons, foxes and coyotes- all of which like to eat chicken.

But I find myself wishing I had them again. I used to have a compost heap of table scraps, meal prep trimmings and pulled weeds. The chickens would eat what they liked and let the bugs or worms have the rest, then eat them, too. So they recycled the organic garbage into fresh eggs. Something I miss now that I'm homebound, or trying to be.

As it is I have a plastic composter that converts the low protein waste to soil, and then I can grow greens in it. It's much slower than chickens.
