|Our poppies on the hill|
Instacart delivered my groceries and I now have COFFEE FILTERS! There were some items the shopper could not get. Mushrooms being one of them. So what, we now have mushroom hoarders? There are still some items I need, and will probably have to go out and do it myself later this week. We still have a full tank of gas in our van. We last filled up on April 3. That\’s amazing. Gas is cheaper now than it was when we last filled up but we can\’t take advantage of it due to our full tank. I guess gas will jump up, once everyone goes back to work? We\’ll have to wait and see…
The husband is on the hill in the back, weeding around our beautiful California poppies. Me? Once again, I can\’t seem to get myself doing anything constructive. I hate this. I put the groceries away – big deal. I haven\’t even been out for a walk today. I started 2 books, and I can\’t seem to focus on them. My mind wanders.
I miss my adult kids. I talked with Foodie on the phone, Sat. I can tell he misses me. Single and living alone. He works but still needs to bounce off his rants to someone who loves him. After one hour, I told him, \”Enough.\” He is quite the talker, to begin with. I am not. Plus he sends me you-tube videos. I have a stack of them in my messages, from him and others that I haven\’t even looked at yet.
We\’re in the \’80s this week. That\’s nice.
Yesterday we ordered Olive Garden and picked it up curbside. That was our Easter dinner. I had Chicken Alfredo and my husband had the Salmon. Just getting out to pick it up was FUN and I noticed how green everything was. Not many people out.
We are thinking about placing an order with Home Depot and have it delivered. Paving stones, wood, etc. We need projects! My husband used a leftover steel pipe to use as a grape trellis. I love reusing things we already have –
I don\’t know if we\’ll be able to go to Tahoe on May 11. They don\’t want any outside their county in – I don\’t blame them….we\’ll have to wait and see. Everything is \”wait and see\” now. I am thankful that I am not in a hot spot and so far, our county has gone 4 days without any cases. Yeah okay, we need to \”wait and see\” since they are telling us, California will hit our peak on Wednesday. In Bakersfield yesterday, a group was fined $1000 for buying essential food at a convenient store – they were 40 miles outside their own town.
I think, nobody really has a handle on this. They are making guesstimations. Like those data charts saying that last week we\’d have 100-200 thousand deaths, and we didn\’t. I guess its better to just throw out the worst-case scenario.
Yep, all we can really do is wait and see.
