As we close out March and head into April, it is a time in all of our lives like no other or as a VT blogger noted – we’re living history.
Each state seems to have its own challenges and directives. NH went from ‘social distancing’ to ‘stay at home’ as of last Friday. We had already been staying at home since returning from South Carolina so we are at Day 15 today.
Outside gardening is off the potential list of things to do because it is raining almost every day which also means it’s gray dark and gloomy which matches my mood sometimes. 🙂 I ordered seeds and two Somerset Seedless Grape vines, but they haven’t arrived yet.
Speaking of ordering, are you doing more online ordering from your favorite chair. I am, and it is kind of alarming how easy it is to rack up the dollars spent, but in this situation it keeps me from having to visit the big box stores.
A couple of friends had made a tissue paper pieced wall Christmas tree, and I really liked it. So, I pieced it while at the beach and quilted and bound it here at home.
I’m happy with it, and look forward to pulling it out when the holidays roll around.
The pattern I used is called ‘A Little Bit Shorter Tall Tree’ because it comes in two sizes.
Today, I’ll start a new project. Hmm, sewing, quilting or embroidery, I’ll have to decide.
I’m not usually a telephone talker. Why? I guess I got so burned out when working that I viewed not having to talk on the telephone as a perk of retirement. But, during this issue, I’m forcing myself to call friends and check in with them because I always feel better after hearing their voices and sharing a few chuckles.
A big applause to those states who set up roadblocks and went door to door to stop Covidiots from moving around the country and extending this process. You’d think we could all understand what ‘stay at home’ means, but apparently not. As one ME blogger friend noted, even duct tape can’t fix stupid.
Are you craving any food items that you don’t have on hand? I wish I had the ingredients to make key lime pie in a jar but guess I’ll go with apple crisp shortbread bars until I make an early morning senior grocery run. I’m going to be honest, once this is over, I will never be grocery shopping at 5:45 a.m. ever again.
So, anything interesting going on at your house this week? Take care, stay home, and above all stay safe.
