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.
