Happy dance! – I finished my taxes (several days before they extended the deadline). As always there were a few glitches in the software that I had to work through but it’s history for another year. #donedonedone #don’tcareifit’sextended
We are in a lockdown – Non-essential business (and there is an excel spreadsheet that defines it) are closed. The first day of the closures was my semi-annual haircut. Hair salons are non-essential (so says the semi-bald governor). I’m looking like a wooly mammoth these days. “They say” that in another month we will know what color everyone’s hair is! Fortunately I always hoard Lady Clairol in my closet! #getoutthehats
I’m an elder! – Yes, that is scary. This past week one of the younger relatives contacted my brother and me. She volunteered to help us in any way she can. Pick up food or supplies, etc. It was so nice of her to do that but it made me realize that I’m among the elders in the family. I still feel like I did when I was 30 and I’m not convinced I’ve matured much since then but it is what it is. Fortunately, we are healthy. For now. #wonderifthatincludescleaningthegarage #margaritastogo
Closures – Food places are in a tricky place. Restaurants are closed for inside dining but they can provide curbside takeout. My local Starbucks is doing drive-through only. Every morning I wonder if they will be open. I’ve been grateful that there are employees willing to work. Hats off to healthcare workers, food store staff, emergency personnel and all others who HAVE to work through this. You are appreciated and admired. My veterinarian has set up a system for sick pets that involves no people contact. During times like this, my cats ALWAYS get sick. #needmochalatte
Spring for sure – I posted about it before but we are having an early spring. Temperatures are ranging from seasonal to above seasonal to way above seasonal. That has resulted in the early blooming of many things, including the trees. Mother Nature (who is not always a great mom) is soothing us with sunshine and flowers. #teammothernature
So how was your week? Stay safe!
