Turkey Tracks: Live Living Beside Covid19

Life Living Beside Covid19

We are still in a modified Stay At Home up here in Maine.

The out-of-state visitors or returning Mainers must quarantine for 14 days in their place of abode. This is NOT the Stay At Home dictate; it’s a hard quarantine.

It’s been over two months for me, as I started self-distancing before the formal Stay at Home state mandate that started about 2 months ago. Some of the restricted places are opening up again. I made an appointment for a haircut and then cancelled it. I’m just not ready to take risks I don’t need to take. I’ll know more about how we are doing in Maine in a few weeks.

I’m ok. I’m an introvert anyway, and I have lots and lots of projects, to include picking up inside and outside jobs where I got help from others. I’m BUSY!

BUT, I miss my friends, and my very rich life where it involved other people. And my family will not be coming this summer. I have not seen them in a year now. Nor will any of my usual visitors. So, I’m thinking of where I can cut back on some of things I would normally do—like all the flower pots I plant each summer.

Meanwhile, my house is cleaner than it has probably EVER been. And I’ve been sorting through “stuff” and culling a lot. It’s a good time to do that kind of work.

AC and I get out into the woods or to the beach at least once a day. It’s good for both of us, and I probably wouldn’t be as good about doing this outing if it weren’t for this little dog.

We have a little quiet break around 3, especially after a long walk. I have a coffee, and we watch one episode of something on tv. Sometimes I fall asleep for a short nap afterwards. This time is so special, but it is also cutting into my sewing time…

Still, I am making progress on the sewing “to do” projects. More pics of those down the road.

I am so grateful for my health. There is a way this time alone has been good. It’s been peaceful, for the most part.

  1. My husband and i are in similar self imposed isolation. The risks are just to great to NOT exercise an abundance of caution, regardless of lifting restrictions. There are too many unknowns! We are grateful that our children and grandchildren are also self-isolating; also so grateful to have our home and gardens, enough food, books, games, projects to keep us busy, the phone and email to stay in touch w dear friends and family. Enjoy that sweet puppy and stay well, louisa! xoxo

  2. I see this as you do Louisa. The risk is not worth whatever it is I want to do. In the next weeks there will be a clearer picture in all geographic areas. Stay safe. Be well.
