Isn’t it strange how fast time flies after all?
We’ve been in crisis mood for over five months.
OK, I am not as freaked out as I was in the beginning of all this.
I am not losing sleep over it anymore. I am not checking the news online time and time again.
I guess that we all have come to be a bit adjusted.
A human being cannot live in constant fear.
I am very careful in my every day life.
To wear a mask is a given MUST!
We cannot even enter any stores—or establishments-- without a face mask. I have a bunch of masks here at home, all made out of fabric.
As soon, as I have been to the store, or elsewhere, I immediately throw them in the laundry bag in the basement.
My mask will protect you and you will protect me as you are wearing one.
I’ll bring a mask along on my daily walks as well.
I am not wearing it the entire time I am out. BUT, when I pass someone on the trails I put it on.
However, I really do not think you can catch Covid from a person you pass outside for a split second.
I don't think so whatsoever.
But I am careful. So is Peter, and so are all the people I know.
However, I am not overly scared anymore. I do not fear the grocery stores like I used to a couple of months ago.
I go shopping anytime I feel like it.
With a mask on. Yes, of course.
And, I wash my hands like a maniac once I get home. I have hand sanitizers in my purse and in the car.
There is no shortage of anything anymore at the stores. Well, I take that back, it is hard to find Lysol sprays and clorox-wipes. But, the rest? NOT a problem.
THANK higher powers for THAT, that phase really was beyond ridiculous.
No, I do not think we’ll see that kind of craziness again, the empty shelves, the lack of paper products, no soaps anywhere, no chicken, no ground beef.
No pasta or rice.
NO that part is over with, and that is nothing but good.
As I said, I do not think we’ll reach that point of madness again.
The weekend was good.
My father- in- law was here for dinner Friday night.
We had drinks on the deck, but we ate inside.
Pretty soon we all have to start seeing one another inside our houses again. In smaller groups. One person, or one couple, at the time.
I am fine with that.
Peter and I took long, local hikes as well both Friday and Saturday.
We went to my mother-in-law's grave at Arlington Cemetery.
We were hanging on the deck when we could. Weather wise it’s been a gray weekend, rainy at times. Mostly overcast. Boring weather, in other words.
Nature is lush.
Karolina moved into her new apartment over the weekend.
It was sweltering hot in Los Angeles on Saturday, so the move was on the burning hot side.
ON top of everything else, the AC in the new apartment did not work. OH boy, but that problem is fixed now.
Anyway, Karolina is as happy as a clam.
She’s so glad that she has left her old apartment . We are happy, too. This is a much nicer place in every way. And, her flatmates seem to be a lot more committed as well.
You can almost tell how humid it is here. Sticky. Kind of gross. The worst kind of summer weather, overcast ... ugh.
SO, that were some thoughts from me this very Tuesday!
I hope you all are having a good day and that your weekend was GOOD!!
