Positively Settled

by Mauverneen

So - how's everybody doing?

The past few months have seemed to stretch on endlessly, yet here we are at the end of July. I don't know about you but I still haven't accomplished all I could have, or should have, what with all the extra time on my hands. But I have made it through a few projects, so there is some progress.

I still take my coffee outside most mornings and watch the birds. I usually leave the camera in the house as I already have way too many pictures of them. The deer come by once in a while, and that's always nice!

I've also had a few people over recently. We can sit outdoors, keep our 6 foot distance and still have a wonderful time. I like the cooler days. The hot, humid, miserable ones are not so fun, it's better inside, in the a.c. so can't have anyone over those days. We still feel more comfortable outdoors.

I have my grocery shopping routine too. I shop online and do curbside pick up. I have been to the grocery store exactly one time since February. It was ok. It was early in the day and there probably were only three other shoppers.

I feel like I can relax a bit, and then... One of my sons-in-law and my daughter had to be tested. Negative, thank God. I found out yesterday that a couple, another daughter's in-laws, both have it. So far they feel 'wiped out'. I hope that's as bad as it gets for them.

Baseball is back! It's fun to be able to watch the games. I can't really watch the news much, it would drive me crazy, and everything else is reruns it seems. I used to love to read.  I have a stack of books on my bedside table to get through, but lately just can't seem to pick up a book. Anybody else?

So it goes. Settling in to new routines. Sometimes good, sometimes missing the old ones. Life goes on.

Stay healthy!

  1. I have done some shopping at Aldi's. Mask compliance has been 100% when I have been in the store.
