Some heavy wind today – everything that hasn\’t been battened down is being strewed over the yard or crashing against the fence or side of the house. This is a day for the wind chimes!
I did some last night I have never done – You know you\’re getting careless when you spill a scalding hot bowl of soup on your lap! I jumped up and immediately stripped off my shorts and underwear and ran to the shower to spray cold water on my upper thigh. I now have blisters. It could have been much worse. Don\’t ask me HOW I did it. I just did. It was as much of a shock for me. It happened so fast.
For a while, as I was tending to my upper thigh, I was not in the mood for my homemade vegetable beef soup I made from the previous days\’ pot roast. I was looking forward to it all day as it smelled so good. About an hour later I made myself a bowl.
It is quite humbling when our county had been so good about not having many cases of Covid19 for months and then, the 2400 students from 70 countries came to Bethel\’s Supernatural Ministry here in Redding. Then literally all hell broke loose. We now have the most active cases in all the counties of California. I also suspect, many from the urban and metro areas, came up here to recreation – and left behind their covid cooties. I\’m sure it is a combination of many things but it is embarrassing, to say the least. Tuesday of next week is when we are to officially move up to the highest level. PURPLE. IN other words, March, April, and May all over again. Just in time for the holidays.
I\’m mad – what is so freaking hard about wearing a mask? Honestly, I am so tired of this debate. My son\’s facility lost 3 people yesterday. I suspect, perhaps a medical staff attends Bethel church and brought it into the facility. We also just heard of another Care facility that has 3 positive cases and at the Veteran Home where my FIL is at, some employees have tested positive. What makes me mad, is that CalVet would call us when they found anyone who was positive back in those early months and has now stopped. We know NOTHING. It just so happens we have inside information. (My husband used to work there) I want to raise Holy Hell but my husband wants to sit on it – I want to call the administrator to ask some questions but the husband says to wait.
Just seems shady to me – Like our local public health. On their Facebook page, they have consistently posted the numbers. Then one day, they change the way they calberate the numbers without any explanation. People started asking questions and only till then did they admit using a different formula. Last week, they did it again. It\’s confusing. They used to do Saturday and Sundays individually now they lump it with Monday for a bigger number. Commenters pressed them until they broke it down for each individual day. I mean, what is UP with that?
I like consistency. My mind gets all boggled when you start messing up the numbers and changing every few weeks.
So, next week some businesses will have to close and others at a 25% capacity. I\’m wondering how this will affect those of us who prefer to vote in person. I only voted by mail once and that was like 15 years ago. I really enjoy experiencing the whole process. Standing in the line – I used to bring my toddlers and back when they had a curtain and you pulled the levers. I\’d have one in a stroller and one hugging my knees. Michael would stand on the outside of the booth and give his little brothers the evil eye. I always came prepared so as not to take up a bunch of time. I get in and I get out ASAP.
Never a dull moment living in this State.
