So Governor Newsom just spoke on what reopening California will look like.
Basically, if we\’re good – and eat all our peas and carrots, we can start this reopening sometime after May 1. There will be restrictions. Masks are the new trending fashion for this summer. Restaurants may open, but they will have to limit, how many and stagger the tables to accommodate social distancing. The school-age kids most likely will not see the inside of their schools till the Fall.
I understand it all – doesn\’t mean I like it. It just all sucks.
At least we are not so tight, that we can\’t buy flower and veggie seeds like Michigan. I have a friend who lives in Monroe, Mi and runs a Lavendar Farm and she is beside herself, that she cannot buy seeds. I have offered to buy them for here, and mail them.
I feel sorry for the homeless. Right now, I have read (I haven\’t been out to actually see for myself) that they are being taken care of with motel vouchers so they can social distance. Think about this…how cruel is it going to be when this is all over…what will the officials do? Tell them, that\’s it – it\’s back on the streets? And I wonder if we can do this, get them housed, why can\’t we do this on a permanent basis? Really, they are only housing them because they are at risk to us. They aren\’t doing this for their sake. That\’s the way I see it. It\’s sad.
I\’m feeling much better today. I\’ve been down the last few days. This morning I woke up and decided I would do some painting. I also laid out in the morning sun – it felt so nice and improved my mood. Tomorrow I have to go in to see my regular doctor for a refill on my anti-depressants. The pharmacy wouldn\’t fill it. I actually was surprised that I had to go in. I\’m excited I have a purpose tomorrow. Just wear a mask…
A friend is dropping by some purple-colored Irises today. She will just drop them off on the driveway. That will be fun to plant.
