Locally the mask wearing mandate is optional for vaccinated people. But people are people and they lie so without showing proof can you believe them? Different stores are reacting differently. The request to wear one varies. Some of the chains like Starbucks and Target have relaxed it and put people on their honor. Locally owned stores are all over the place. I did a series of errands and everyone at Starbucks wore one. The flower place required a mask as did the furniture place but I was the only person in the paint store with one on. I’m not complaining. At this point I see the light at the end of the tunnel so I’m happy to do whatever makes others happy. Personally I don’t trust putting people on their honor. I often wonder if people know what honor is.
I’m working on letting go. The old house is history but yesterday on my errand run I had a strong urge to drive-by. I know from many other experiences that it’s not always a happy trip. At this point the home should be beautiful. There are five dogwoods and two crabapples and they should all be blooming but you never know. People cut things down. At my last house they took out all the shrubs in the front to put in what looked like cheap Walmart stuff. Most of the time I don’t care but this morning I had to beat it down. Maybe the frogs were calling to me. Instead I came home to my new home where everything was also blooming and my happy place was calling.
