WDIIA – Monday, March 30, 2020

My first cup of coffee is late this morning because I slept in. Last night I wasn’t ready to go to bed. As I ran through our streaming channels looking for something funny or uplifting to watch, I was sorely disappointed in how much violence, murder and sad drama there is. Most comedy things I found I have seen many times over. So, I dropped into the romantic comedies category and started watching “He’s Just Not That Into You”. I watched the entire movie. If I had checked Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB first, I might have just gone to bed. It wasn’t very funny or even particularly romantic to me. Was dating really that bad in 2009? Anyway, I digress…

At 5:00 pm today, our governor has declared a statewide “Stay at Home” order. We can still go out for groceries, but the advice is to stay in unless absolutely necessary. We are not buying excessively unlike some people. We have supplies for at least two weeks, but will need to go out at sometime for groceries. Only one of us goes out, and we sort and stage our groceries before bringing them in the house. Every day it seems new information comes out about how long the virus lives on a given surface. Ugh. There are still so many states where people are continuing life as always and I worry about what that means in the long run.

Yesterday I watched a few videos about using watercolor pencils which I have on hand. I also have some postcards made from watercolor paper so I could make some cards to mail to friends someday when people are not afraid of even receiving mail. 🙄

Our garden center is open and they are allowing people to order over the phone and then have the items loaded in your car curbside. Hubby is in the process of putting together another raised garden, so we might order some mushroom compost and some seedlings if we can do so safely. Since he has a truck, things could be placed in the bed rather than in the interior of the vehicle.

Yesterday I went on my Facebook page and posted links to several fellow-bloggers’ Amazon pages for my friends that love to read. I hope someone gets a purchase or two out of the sharing. I will do another group next week.

What are you looking forward to after this is past us? Seeing family? Hugging friends? Gathering in groups? Going to the movie? For me, I look forward to no longer living in so much fear and uncertainty. And hugging my family again. I miss my children and grandchildren so much.
