It’s all different – This week a blogger commented said that she was finding it hard to write about anything but the virus. I realized even day-to-day stories are different. Nothing is as it was, at least not here. I get my dose of stupid people from the news because I don’t go out and see it first-hand. It will be a time to be remembered. #stupidpeoplearestillhere
Hanging on – For me keeping at least one routine is comforting. The gym is closed and so is retail therapy (at least the fondling merchandise part). I’m working to get my daily steps in although it’s harder when the weather doesn’t cooperate. #lovingmymocha #gottawalkgottawalk
Speaking of stupid people – In a nearby town, the police busted a “corona party.” There were 47 people with a DJ in an apartment partying their butt off. I want to say “thinning of the herd” but these aren’t the people who get thinned. The host was given a citation. A whipping would have been better. #Darwinlaughsfromhisgrave #didn’thismamateachhimanything
New technology – We have a group of folks who get together once a month for game night. It’s canceled along with every other fun thing. One of the group is a teacher (thanks Regina) who has had to learn Zoom. She taught us how to use it and we will have a Zoom gathering later today. Necessity is the mother of invention. I am reminded of that over and over. A lot of things will change. This is the nudge for resistant people to accept technology and all the good things it can do. #youcanteacholddogsnewtricks
On a happy note – We had a few warm days this week and we “opened” the pond. Technically it’s open all winter. I took out the bubbler and winter de-icer (which we didn’t need at all this past winter) and put the waterfall on. This never goes smoothly because over the winter you can get leaks in the hoses or something doesn’t work and that all happened. It took us two hours to figure out that a washer on a hose attachment was the problem. (My DIY friends in Brittany know this very well.) #aspotofparadise
So how was your week?
