Are the weeks running together in your life like they are running together in mine? We continue to remind each other of what day of the week it is and what the date is. Calendars are sadly bare except for Zoom meetings with the kids. It’s our new normal, right?
This week our oldest son turns 35. I don’t normally feel “old” but knowing that we have a 35 year old son has certainly made me pause. I so wish we could be with him in person to celebrate but a trip to NYC is definitely not going to happen now so we are going to celebrate with him from afar.
Life has gotten so weird this last month. We made a trip this weekend to the Transylvania Farmers Market where I had pre ordered herb plants. Totally loved the no contact ordering and pick up where they just placed them in the back of my Subaru and we helped a local business. I placed a Curbside pick up order from our local Sam’s Club and Chris and I went to pick that up on Saturday night. Curbside Pickup there actually is a misnomer as you have to actually go into the store to retrieve your cart with the items. I think they need to rename that to Store Pick up. Anyway, I went in alone with my mask on and got my goodies, wiped them all down before we loaded them in the car and felt that we had a safe situation. What I don’t understand is all the people who appear to be oblivious and who are not taking precautions. I don’t think I am over reacting but I certainly do not want to be the one to A] get the Coronavirus or B] be a carrier and give it to someone else. So I will do what I need to do.
But I digress. Life is changing a bit but we are still optimistic and know that someday we will be back to a more normal situation. I will always be more aware of my hand washing and hygiene and that is a good thing.
I joined in with some other bloggers to share my experience with Covid-19 on a lovely blog, Travel Tales of Life, by Sue and Dave Slaght who live in Canada. Clicking here will take you to the post where my experiences are featured along with others from the United States. My friend, Darlene, who lives in Spain was featured here. It is a great travel blog and the authors are gracious and very warm people. I felt privileged to share my story there with them and their readers. Make sure you hop over there to read these posts and to see where their travel adventures have taken them. While you are there tell them I sent you.
Thanks to each of you who continues to read and share your lives with me as I share mine with you. Don’t forget to leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause – WHO Covid-19 Solidarity Fund.
